Storyf 5A LAURA McKENZIE Herald-Zeitung »-POLICE OFFICERS Civil service is vanaNBPD readies toxicology reportMark Anthony Saldivar, 38, died following high-speed chase early Feb. 10 Saldivar By J. Louise Larson The Herald-Zeitung New Braunfels authorities are preparing to release toxicology results in the case of Mark Anthony Saldivar, 38, who died following a high-speed chase in the early morning hours of Feb. 10. New Braunfels Police Department Lt. Michael Penshorn said he expects the results to be available early next week. An officer parked in the area of ValMark Chevrolet, observed a red Ford Expedition traveling north bound on 1-35 at a high rate of speed around 2:16 a.m. “When the officer caught up and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver refused to stop and began to evade the officer," Penshorn said. “The vehicle continued north bound, exiting IH-35 at Kohlenberg Road, crossed over IH-35 overpass and then sped throughout the Quail Valley subdivision before heading back south on the southbound frontage road of IH-35.

Gadhafi’s legitimacy has been “reduced to zero,” the White House said as it announced the steps. The sharper U.S. tone and pledges of tough action came after American diplomatic personnel were evacuated from the capital of Tripoli aboard a chartered ferry and a chartered airplane, escorting them away from the violence to Malta and Turkey. As they left, fighting raged on in Tripoli and elsewhere in Libya as Gadhafi vowed to crush the rebellion that now controls large parts of the country. With U.S. diplomats and others out of harms way, the administration moved swiftly. Shortly after the chartered plane left Libyan airspace, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the U.S. had been constrained in moving against Gadhafi and his loyalists due to concerns over the safety of Americans but was now ready to bring more pressure on the government to halt its attacks on opponents. “It’s clear that Colonel Gadhafi has lost the confidence of See LIBYA, Page 8A Gadhafi Mi A BPftUfd I! Tlx SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2011 Texas Newspaper of the Year Serving New Braunfels and Comal County since 1852. 50« Issue will go before voters on May 14 By J. Louise Larson The Herald-Zeitung It’s official: With 521 verified signatures — and a narrower margin than previously expected, thanks to a 35-year-old election — New Braunfels Police Officers Association has gotten the issue of civil service on the May 14 municipal election ballot. “They pre-s e n t e d enough signatures to get on the ballot," City Attorney Alan Wayland said. In previous discussions, NBPOA officials said they believed all they needed was a roster of valid signatures in numbers equivalent to 10 percent of the votes cast in the last citywide election — and spokesmen cited the 2008 election’s 437 ballots cast as the standard, which would have only required 44 valid signatures. However, Wayland said, the last general, citywide municipal election for New Braun-felsers was 2006, when firefighters won the right to go to a civil service system. There were 2,477 total ballots cast in that election. According to Chapter 143 of the Texas Government code that deals specifically with police and firefighter civil service, if the police department See PETITION, Page 8A “By seeking civil service, were not wanting to be ‘at-will.’ Were wanting to be more secure in our jobs and have a more standardized set of rules in place — standardized for hiring, promotion and the disciplinary process.” SGT.
