New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 26, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Now Braunfels Herald-Zeitung    Tuesday, February 26,1985 In Port Above, defense attorney Jack Zimmermann talks to the media outside the Courthouse flanked by David Port and his mother, Janice Biggar. Left, Harris County Assistant District Attorney Mary Milloy and members of the prosecuting team leave the Courthouse. Port is DCRYL CLAWK /HORAL D-ZEITUNG on trial for the murder of a female letter carrier in Houston, and jury selection for that trial began here Monday. The trial was moved here on a change of venue, and scenes like these may be repeated daily, since it may last at least three weeks. Second notices due next week on Comal ISD tax bills WW ■rn Jan. 31 tax collections have been finalized for Comal ISD, and second notices will be mailed about March 4. Penalty and interest charges have been added to those taxpayers who did not pay by Feb. I, but interest on those charges will jump from seven to nine percent if the bill isn’t paid by the end of the month. CISD Tax Assessor-Collector E.W. Neuse Jr., said collections are down a little over three percent from last year. However, in tax dollars, CISD has collected $1,387,429 more than last year, since the district’s levy is about $1,890,000 greater due to increased values and a higher tax rate. As of Jan. 31, $1,137,000 in taxes was still outstanding. The 1984 tax levy is $7,554,593.49. Tax payments can be mailed to E.W. Neuse Jr., Tax Assessor-Collector, Comal ISD, P.O. Box 177, New Braunfels, TX 78131-0177, or can be paid in person at 1425 Highway 81 East from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. int4** ** Deaths ★ Port. Continued from Page I County because of extensive publicity there on the carrier’s death and the refusal of Port's parents to testify before a Harris County grand jury. The judge chose New Braunfels as the site for the trial. The majority of Comal County citizens questioned Monday said they viewed the charge against Port and his parent’s five-month ordeal in jail as two separate incidents. One potential juror said, “You can’t put yourself in someone else s shoes. They did whatever they did for whatever reason, but they’re totally separate to me. What I do and what my son does are two different things. ” Comal County District Clerk Hazel Kuhn said 175 potential jurors were initially summoned in attempts to obtain a panel of 12 fair and impartial citizens. Of that 175, Kulm only got 45 persons to appear Monday morning, and 40 were scheduled to show up this morning. “Then I guess the whole panel will be called back on Wednesday for them to make Stocks NEW YORK (AP) -Morning stocks High Low Lost AMR Corp »‘4 39 30H Amor Can 51S 51H SIH Amoriltch UH 82H WH AMI Inc 23*4 23 23H Am Motors 3S 3H JH 33** 33H 33H Amor TAT 21 >>4 21 21H Armcolnc IIH ion ion AtlRichfld ♦SS UH ISH BancTexas ♦Ai IH IS BollAUan $4 «3H us BellSouth s 35 Ai 35H 35H Both Stool ISH ll ISH Benton SCH 65H 65S CatorpTr Contd 32H IIH 32 IIH 32V| IIH Chevron 35 34H MS Chrysler 32H UH 32H Coes Cols 62H SIS 62H Coleman SOH 30S 30S ll ll IS Pimtffiff1 ISH IIH IIH DowChem 2»H SBH 29 Dreasrlnd 21 JOH JOH East Kodak 60H SOH SOH Eaaerch S$v« 25H 25H Beltline IIH ISH 19H Exxon 47H 17V* 47H FedlCo 34 36 to Firestone UH IIH ISH FtBcpTex FordMot ISH ll ISH UH ISH UH GAF Corp 2tH 20 29 GT* Corp 42H U UH GnDynam GwCltc TI <3 71 SIH 79 IIH Gen Food SAH SBH SOH Gob Motors TBH 77S 77S GnMotr En •BH •7% SIH Goodrich UH MS 2SH Goodyear GtAuPac 2BH 15S 27H ISH 21 ISH HoMbnrtn 30 20H JOH Monday Im Honotlnrt 52H 22H 52H 2JS SJH JIH HaghedTl ISH ISH IIH their strikes," she said. “If chosen, they get $16 a day. If not, they get $6 a day.” Judge McMaster told potential jurors that once selected, they would probably be sequestered for the length of the trial. He estimated that could mean two to three weeks of inconvenience, but indicated the work week might be extended to six days a week. Meanwhile, television camera crews stood around the courthouse Monday waiting for a photo opportunity. Some out-of-town reporters apparently posed questions as to whether Port, who is Jewish, could get a fair trial in a town of strong German ancestry. Commissioner Jumbo Evans said he was asked that question, and he replied, “I didn’t even know he was Jewish. I told them we have a stable community, and any concept otherwise was ridiculous.’’ A few San Antonio reporters did “Men on the Street” interviews, asking people like Councilman James Goodbread if he knew who David Port was. I He did). After jury selection recessed for lunch Monday, one cameraman followed a professional-looking person down the interior courthouse stairs with his camera, then turned to the person beside him and said, “Who the hell was that?” Defense attorney Jack Zimmermann was asked by a Houston reporter if he still thought his client could get a fair trial in New Braunfels, after 32 of 40 potential jurors polled Monday morning said they had heard of the Port case. “Let me say I wouldn't have let the record stand as it was if I was concerned about that,” Zimmermann replied. “I think we can get a fair trial here. There is no motion filed for a second change of venue.” Another reporter asked why Port’s natural mother, Janice Biggar, was here and not his stepmother, who spent months in jail refusing to testify against her step-son. Zimmermann simply said Bernard and Odette Port were under gag orders, which didn’t really answer the question, but it sounded good.
