Houston they plan to pay less than one-third of the $90,930 they were billed for expenses of the October murder trial of Selena killer Yolanda Saldivar.
County commissioners voted Wednesday in Corpus Christi to offer Hams County $29,620 to settle the account.
And, although no action was taken on the city of Houston’s bill for $44,163, Nueces County Judge Richard M. Bore hard is recommending that the city be paid nothing.
In a letter sent last week to Harris County Judge Robert Eckles, Bor-chard argued that Harris County’s bill included costs that would have been incurred even if Ms. Saldivar’s trial had not been moved to Houston.
“Needless to say, the magnitude of the charges billed to Nueces County for the mal is well above anything we anticipated or budgeted,” Borchard said in his letter.
Commlttuu Delays Action on Graduation Changes
AUSTIN (AP) — A State Board of Education committee has delayed action on a proposal to strengthen minimum high school graduation standards by adding technology and speech as requirements.
Members of the Committee on Students said Thursday that before they vote on the proposal recommended by Education Commissioner Mike Moses, they want time for discussion and more input from teachers and others.
An initial vote now is expected next month, with final action possible in April.
The proposal would increase the minimum number of credits required for graduation from 21 to 22. Students get a half-credit for each semester of coursework in a particular area.
The new requirements would apply to students entering the ninth grade in the 1997-98 school year.

DALLAS (AP) — Since October, one prostitute a month has been killed in Dallas and nearby Irving. Two were shot, one was stabbed and one was strangled. Each was found in a different location, all far from the others.
Yet Dallas police, who have assigned more than 20 officers to the case, are convinced the same person was behind at least three of the slayings.
And they fear he is ready to kill again — and not necessarily another prostitute.
“We feel there’s a great danger out there to the public,” said Dallas homicide Sgt. Larry Lewis, a leader of a multidivisional task force aimed at catching the suspect, who remained at large Thursday.
“He’s apparently murdering people for no motive. It’s an indication that he could be killing for recreation. When you have that type of individual on the streets, everybody is in danger.”
Lewis didn’t want to jeopardize the case by divulging too many details about links between the seemingly unrelated cases, but he guaranteed the evidence is convincing.
“I will say there’s some aspects in the physical evidence we’re examining,” Lewis said, declining to reveal whether that evidence involved the condition of the corpses or items found
at the scene.
The first victim, 3 I-year-old Lacheke Grandberry of Irving, was found strangled Oct. 6 along an overgrown path on a northwest Dallas nature trail.

‘He’s apparently murdering people for no motive. It’s an indication that he could be killing for recreation.’

Beasley was found stabbed to death in a West Dallas park.
Last Friday, city workers found the body of 23-year-old Ida Gee along the side of a South Dallas road. She had been shot to death.
The possible fourth victim, Staci Terrell, 25, was found shot in the head behind a retirement village on Nov. ll.
“We feel the strongest about (the link between) the ones that have occurred in Dallas,” Lewis said. “We can’t make a direct determination yet (on the Irving case). We feel very strongly about it, though.”
Irving police did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Thursday seeking comment.
