Perry names agricultural staff
The Texas Department of Agriculture is ready to meet the challenges of the 1990s, according to Agriculture Commissioner Rick Perry.
“The staff is now virtually complete and the reorganization of the agency is we# under way,” Perry said. “Farmers and ranchers now have an outstanding group to serve as their advocates as the 1990s progress.”
Perry said he is proud of the wide experience the Texas Department of Agriculture will put at the disposal of the public. “For example, our new deputy commissioner, Barry McGee, comes to us from the White House. Barry brings with him an oveview of world economics that can greatly benefit Texans.”
Perry pointed out not all of his new management team are newcomers to the Texas Department of Agriculture.
“Alvin Ashom, who will serve as assistant commissioner for reulatory affairs, has served the agency for 23 years. He knows fanners and ranchers from all over the state and is familiar with their needs and their problems.”
Perry added that Ashom is just one of many long-time TDA employees who will continue to work for the department.
Perry released a list of the staff management personnel who will direct the department. Because some titles will differ from those used in the past, he advised those with questions

fighters attacked artillery and command centers of Iraq’s elite Republican Guard. Italian fighter-bombers also flew missions today.
In an interview today on CNN, the commander of Desen Storm, Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, said the Iraqi attack on Khafji was “about as significant as a mosquito on an elephant.’’ The allies have flown more than 30,000 combat and suppon sonics. The air attacks are systematically
destroying Iraq’s military supply system, smashing hardened shelters housing Iraqi jets, and continuing to knock out troublesome Scud-type missile launchers, he told reporters in Saudi Arabia.
Allied forces had destroyed all of Iraq’s nuclear reactors, half of its biological warfare plants, and chemical storage and production sites. Schwarzkopf said.

“Where he (Taliaferro) was sawing was not his cell," he said. “And where the blades were located were not his cell, hut he had acccsss to that cell."

Southwestern Bell Telephone Company has filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to provide an optional experimental service offering called Intercept Referral Services. The proposed effective date of these services is March 1,1991.
Intercept Referral Services are optional and intended for use by business customers. Southwestern Bell will continue to provide basic intercept service to both residence and business customers at no charge. Basic intercept service provides a recorded message that a number has been disconnected, or is no longer in service, and provides the new telephone number, if available.
The new Intercept Referral Services will provide business customers who disconnect or change their telephone service three types of optional custom intercept services. Location Intercept, Special Intercept and Expanded Intercept. The initial term of service is three months for Intercept Referral Services.
Location Intercept provides a recorded announcement that the number is disconnected and refers the caller to the called party’s name, new number and new street address (if the business has moved locally), and the city and state (if the business has moved out of town). The total rate for Location Intercept is $54 for the initial term of service.
Special Intercept provides for calls to a disconnected number to be routed to a special recorded announcement, or in the case of multiple forwarding numbers, to an operator for special handling. The total rates for the initial term of service for Special Intercept are $66 for the mechanized intercept and $108 for operator-handled.
Expanded Intercept provides for calls to a disconnected number to be routed to a recorded announcement that has been chosen by the called customer from a list of texts provided by Southwestern Bell. The total rate for Expanded Intercept is $75 for the initial term of service
The Intercept Referral Services trial is expected to generate first-year revenues of approximately $100,000 These services will be offered for 12 months on a trial basis in a limited number of exchanges. The availability of these services after that time will depend upon Southwestern Bell's ability to offer the services on a permanent basis.
Persons who wish to comment on this application should notify the commission by February 19.1991. Requests for further information should be mailed to the Public Utility Commission of Texas, 7800 Shoal Creek Boulevard, Suite 400N, Austin, Texas 78757, or you may call the Public Utility Commission Public Information Office at (512) 458-0256, or (512) 458-0221 teletypewriter for the deaf.
