“There are many reasons of course why I seek re-election, but mainly because I enjoy being a public servant and have much work to do, along with my staff, to get back to a unified good working system since the implementation of the Central Appraisal Office, when all records were changed over,” Mrs. Cleanan said.
She added, “I feel all of this can be accomplished with great savings to the taxpayers, if we can continue striving for t goals established and which need my continued effort to complete, based on the knowledge I have learned to date
Sheriff: Walter Fellers, who has served as sheriff for 31 years, will announce Monday h is decision whether he will seek re-election. The Democrat indicated last year he would seek another.
“I think I would continue doing service to the county and I would like to see the jail finished. I would like to go into the new jail,” Fellers said.
He said he would like to continue to give strong law enforcement to the county.
“To give service to Comal County, I have beefed up my patrol force and my jail force,” Fellers said.
Carl Davis, a retired highway patrolman, has filed for Sheriff on the COP ticket.
County Attorney: Incumbent Bill Reimer plans to seek his second term in the county attorney office.
He plans to file next week on the Democratic ticket.
Explaining why he is seeking re-election, Reimer said, “Ore, to make a living. Two, I feel I have done some service to the community.”
The county attorney said this term has been working on his goals, and he hopes by being elected, he will be able to to see his goals accomplished.
Reimer explained his office’s prosecution had slowed down driving while intoxicated. “Now I want to reduce it,” he said. Reimer also pointed to tile reduced hot check rate.
Noting he had grown up in New Braunfels and is presently raising three daughters, Reimer said, “I want to see it be the same type of community that I grew up in.”
Prior to this term in this office, Reimer was an assistant county attorney.
District Attorney: After holding the office since 1977, William Schroeder has decided to seek re-election as district attorney. The Democrat plans to file in a couple of weeks.
Laughingly suggesting fear of unemployment as one reason to run again, Schroeder said, “I hadn’t really thought about it.
“Basically, I feel we’ve accomplished some things in the DA office in the past couple of years and I want to continue that progress,” he said.
Schroeder said his task has been eased somewhat by an assistant district attorney and more space. The office is handling 2Mi times the case load that it
was in 1980.
“I think the office has been running well and I’d like to maintain that posture,” he said.
Precinct 2 Constable: “I have intentions of running again,” said Kermit Vetter, constable of Precinct 2. He has not filed yet.
A Democrat, Vetter has held the position for two terms.
“I feel like I’ve done a good job for the people in Precinct 2,” he said, explaining that it is “a fast-growing precinct.”
Precinct I Constable: Incumbent Werner Kiesling will try for his fourth term as Precinct I Constable. He filed Tuesday for the Democratic primary.
Kiesling is interested in re-election because he believes the use of his interest as a law enforcement is a way to serve the county. “I don’t participate in any of the civic organizations in die county,” Kiesling explained.
He explained the constable is responsible along with the Sheriff’s Department for River Road, especially during the tourist season.
The constable, he said, “need to make sure people who come in as our guests act like guests.”
The constable and his two deputies provide an extra of trained people to aid the sheriff’s department, Kiesling explained. All three are certified peace officers.
“We feel like we’ve done an awful lot,” Kiesling said.★ General

act of a terrorist.
“There was no apparent sign of a struggle,” he said. “We've heard nothing from anybody since the body was found. No one claimed credit.”
The FBI statement also released the context of a second note, which was found on Ownby's desk and said he had apparently surprised some people inside the building. The note, which carried the time of 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, said:
“I started out of the building and caught a glimpse of some people in the building who moved toward the back of the building. I don't know who they are or what they are doing. They were apparently startled. I came back here to call the MP's, however, I can not get any of the telephones to work. Just as a precaution, I am placing my office keys in my shoe. I will call the MPs as soon as I can get to a phone.” Fort Sam Houston spokesman Col. Robert McDonald said base police officers took no special security precautions after discovering the body.
“We didn't know what was going on and, at first, there was some concern.” McDonald said. “We
never went on any kind of military alert here, though.”
Leo Soto, executive assistant to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service region commissioner in Dallas, said the service intially warned border stations of the possibility of a terrorist slaying, but later backed off.
“We put out a normal border alert and told our chiefs that there was an unconfirmed possible terrorist killing,” Soto said. “We called them back later to say it didn’t look that way. It’s the same thing we would have done if a sheriff’s office had called about a robbery."
Bob Butler, who described himself as Ownby’s “dearest friend,” told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Ownby’s wife. Ann, called her husband’s office at 2 a.m. Wednesday, and when he did not answer, she went to the building and found it locked. He said she returned home and went back to the building an hour later.
“She ran into a security agent she knew and had him unlock the building,” Butler said. “They went to his office, but he was not there and she came home.”
Butler said he doubted Ownby killed himself.★ Club notes.
Arrangements are pending at Zoeller Funeral Home for Amelia Intrau, who died Wednesday at Oakcrest Inn. She was 98 years old.

Driver escapes uninjured when train hits truck
By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer
No one was injured in a train-dump truck collision on Watson Lane west around noon Wednesday.
Department of Public Safety trooper Keith Simmons said a bobtail dump truck, driven by G.C. Guerra of Victoria, was traveling west on Watson Lane when its right rear corner collided with a Missouri-Pacific train.
“The impact knocked the truck another 50 feet west down the track,” Simmons added. “There were no
injuries, but the dump truck was a total — I mean, total — loss."
Guerra told the trooper he didn’t see the train because he was too busy looking at a man standing in the road. That man turned out to be Brian Griffith, a railroad investigator looking into a previous accident at the same crossing.
“Griffith also said Guerra was looking at him and not the train when the two collided,” Simmons said, adding the train was probably going about 35 mph and the truck between 10-15 mph.
