New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 23, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Pregnant woman saves self, son from fire ROXTON, Texas (AP) — Doctors successfully performed a Caesarean section on a woman after she jumped off a roof during a house fire, officials said. Kim Lahman, 25, gave birth to a healthy baby after the incident in which she also saved her 4-year son by pushing him off the 14-foot-high porch roof. She was recovering from burns and a broken ankle and was listed in stable condition at L.P. McCuistion Hospital in Paris, said hospital spokesman Deraid Bulls. The baby boy’s name is Adam William, said her husband, Darrell Lahman, who was at his night job at a factory in this northeast Texas community when the fire broke out late Wednesday night. Their son, Noah, was not hurt, said Lahman. “They heard the smoke and fire detectors go off and they got up, made it downstairs and she got the door open and sent my 4-year-old over to the next-door neighbors to try and get some help,” Lahman said. “Noah got the people up next door, and he came back to the house, went back inside and went back upstairs where she was at,” Lahman said. The wife apparently had returned upstairs to try and rescue some pets when she and the boy could not get out, Lahman said. None of the seven dogs and several exotic birds could be saved. “By then, they couldn’t get down the stairs, so they went into our spare bedroom and she broke the window out and got out onto the porch roof,” he said. “From there, she pushed Noah off, about a 14-foot drop, and then she jumped off.” Mrs. Lahman tried to crawl through some burning debris and was rescued by neighbors and people driving by who saw the blaze and stopped to help, Lahman said. Hundreds turn away from IRS seminar SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Several hundred people, including many who were angry, were turned away at the door from an Internal Revenue Service seminar held to explain the new complicated W-4 withholding form that all workers are required to file this year. More than 500 people, most representing businesses, showed up for a seminar at 9 a.m. Thursday. The Internal Revenue Service had booked a room with only 310 seats for each of the three seminars they held Thursday. Most of those attending the seminars planned to go back to their companies to explain the new forms to employees. About 400 showed up for an afternoon session, but officials were able to make room for everyone. But some of the people turned away from the morning session left angry, and they let the IRS know their feelings. “This is ridiculous,” said Diane Saliba of San Antonio, who was turned away from the morning seminar. “I talked to one woman who had driven 150 miles to get to this seminar, and they couldn’t get her in.” Pamela Kurburski, taxpayer education coordinator for the Austin district of the IRS, said invitations were mailed in early January to employers. They expected that IO percent of those invited would attend, she said. The response rate was 40 percent, she said, noting that about 1,000 reservations came in on Jan. 16 alone. Last-minute arrangements were made for two rooms, holding 80 people each.Leak Continued from Page 1A We moved the working personnel in the office area to a safe zone about 2.000 feet away,” said Syring, who coordinated the efforts. “Others were on stand-by notice that if the wind changed” they would move. Syring said the chlorine is stored in the bottles in liquid form. The liquid is turned into gas for distribution to pools and water treatment facilities. The bottles weigh 150 pounds when empty and about 245 pounds when full of the liquid which transforms into between 800 and 1,000 cubic feet of gas. “I take it he (Wilson) had gone through and smelled it and he went in and shut the system down,” Syring said. “But. what had occurred, he Airplane Continued from Page 1A Braunels; Gregory Oetken, 24.

Obituaries could not stop by shutting the system down.” Syring said that when a bottle gets hot, a release plug expands to expel the air and prevent an explosion. That plug was leaking Thursday night and could only be stopped with an A Patching Kit. “That’s something we don’t have here is an A Patching Kit, which can patch any compressed 150-pounder bottle,” Syring said. “I would suggest that would be a very good idea to have a kit,” Syring said, pointing out the high number of pubic pools and small water treatment facilities in this area. "We send three or four firefighters every year to hazardous material school in Bryan. We have already trained captains, lieutenants, chiefs and next will be supervisors,” he said. “When that training is complete, A Patching Kits should be considered part of our hazardous material response,” Syring continued. “We have enough knowledge in our system to handle something like this and it would be a recommended thing for all departments with trained personnel.” Syring said the patching kits are expensive and may only be used once a year. “The idea is never to use them,” he said, adding “We probably could have cut an hour off last night. That would have been important in a heavily populated area. We were lucky that happened in a rural area.” Syring said managers at Hill Country did not connect new chlorine bottles, but are waiting on an engineering report to determine the cause of the leak.

The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, up a record 51.60 on Thursday, rose 21.93 to 2,167.60 by ll a.m. on Wall Street. The broader market also kept surging : gainers outnumbered losers by about 8 to 5 on the New York Stock Exchange, with 831 issues advancing, 496 declining and 423 unchanged. Analysts said stock prices were boosted early today partly by program buying among traders attempting to capitalize in disparities between stock index futures and the prices of the underlying shares. In addition, many Wall Streeters say there is a growing sentiment among many investors that the stock market’s early 1987 rally has a way to go before fading, and they do not want to miss out on any further gains. Prices had bolted higher Thursday on program trading, technical buying and an infusion of funds from investors believing it was a good time to enter the market following Wednesday’s broad decline. Hewlett Packard fell Va to 527/s and led the NYSE most active list with 1.2 million shares changing hands. Among other actives, IBM was up 1% to 128%, Ford rose % to 77V*, General Motors fell Va to 72Vs, General Electric fell Va to 101%, and BankAmerica fell % to 14%. First Chicago fell I to 32%. The state of Illinois removed $220 million in deposits from the bank holding company to protest its credit card interest rates. Big Board volume was 82.04 million shares in the first hour of trading. The exchange’s composite index was up 1.34 to 157.31. The American Stock Exchange market value index rose 1.67 to 298.16. Cities may drop drinking ordinance ARLINGTON (AP) - A city considering prohibiting drinking behind the wheel probably will drop the idea, now that the Texas attorney general says such ordinances exceed cities’ authority, a state representative said. And cities who already have those ordinances may have to re-examine them, officials say. State Rep. Al Luna of Houston requested the attorney general’s opinion on ordinances in Arlington and Corpus Christi that make it illegal to take a drink while driving, although possesson of open containers is legal. State law does not prohibit drinking and driving, unless the driver is legally intoxicated. Luna said the Houston City Council, which was considering adopting a similar ordinance, probably will not do so now. Houston officials had asked Luna to study the matter. The attorney general’s office says it isn’t sure how many cities have similar ordinances, but that those that do are infringing on state authority. According to an opinion issued Jan. 16, the state’s alcoholic beverage code reserves for the state the exclusive right to regulate the manufacture, sale, transport and possession of alcohol in Texas. Because a police officer must actually see the driver take a drink before issuing a citation, the laws are difficult to enforce, officials in Corpus Christi and Arlington said. In Arlington, only 135 such citations were issued in 1986, mostly to teen-agers caught drinking along a popular cruising strip, said police spokesman Dee Anderson. Corpus Christi City Attorney Jimmy Bray said that relatively few tickets for drinking while driving are written there, but that he will wait until he sees the opinion to decide whether the law should remain on the books. “If it’s persuasive, I’ll advise the City Council to drop the ordinance,” he said. Grand Prairie authorities said their ordinance has been unchallenged since it went on the books in 1964, said assistant City Attorney Tom Allensworth. “(The opinion) is supposed to carry great weight, but it's not unheard of for a higher court to reject an attorney general’s opinion,” Allensworth said. “A lot of cities do have ordinances like this, and if someone is arrested for violating one of them, the opinion would certainly help them contest it,” said assistant attorney general Jennifer Riggs, who drafted the opinion at Luna’s request. “The opinion isn’t binding, but it will be persuasive,” she added. “I understand what these cities are trying to do, but if they're really concerned about this, they need to get together and launch a lobbying effort to get the state law changed.” Arlington City Attorney Jay Doegey said, “At this point, we respectfully disagree with the (attorney general’s) opinion,” Doegey said. “We’re conducting a review to see if there’s anything in there to cause concern on our part, but our ordinance is structured in such a way that it wouldn’t conflict with state law.”Water. Continued from Page 1A residents of the area would have to be informed. The study of the threatened ground water areas in Texas could take several years, Cross said. “I think that this area could be one of those that takes a long time,” he said. Aside from being the major water supply for the Hill Country, City of San Antonio pumps millions of gallons a day of Edwards Aquifer water into its scenic tourist attraction, the San Antonio River. The aquifer board of directors currently is publicizing its belief that users must begin to reduce reliance on the Edwards supply and seek other long-term sources.
