New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 2, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zaltuno O Sunday. July 2.1995 O 9 A •Texas BriefsStafford Maintains Innoooneo, la Ixoeutod for Throo Doatha MCALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Roger Dale Stafford has been executed, still pleading he was innocent of two mass murders that terrorized Oklahoma in the summer of 1978. Stafford, 43, died of drug injection at 12:30 a.m. Saturday for killing a Texas couple and their 12-year-old son on an Oklahoma highway. He had been on death row 15 years for murdering the Melvin Lorenz family of San Antonio and for murdering six people in a meat locker of an Oklahoma City steakhouse during a robbery. The talkative drifter protested his fate, but smiled often as he talked and prayed with his wife, Mickey, in the moments leading up to the lethal drug being injected into his body at 12:22 a.m. He was pronounced dead by a doctor eight minutes later. “I’d like to tell the world that you’re seeing an innocent man murdered,” Stafford said in his final remarks, interspersed with his praying with his wife and acknowledging other witnesses, including four of his attorneys.Onlookers Ramambar Stafford Crimes Wall McAlester, Okla. (AP) — The atrocity of the crimes alone figured to draw Oklahomans to the gates of Oklahoma State Penitentiary when Roger Dale Stafford was put to death early Saturday. Some came with a purpose. Don Stewart stood in quiet support of a longtime friend, whose son was • among the six Sirloin Stockade restau-' rant employees whom Stafford shot to death during a robbery. Barbara Berryhill, sickened upon hearing of the murders of a Texas family and six restaurant employees, and angered as the years passed without an execution, came for satisfaction. David Satterfield came because of $125 he won in a poker game the night Stafford gunned down the six steakhouse workers. He wanted to go to the Sirloin Stockade, but feared that at 10:30 p.m., it was too close to closing.Waco Pollee Crack Down on Homeless Croup WACO, Texas — (AP) — Waco police issued a shape-up-or-ship-out notice to a group of transients who make their home under a heavily travelled Interstate 35 overpass. As part of a new ’’zero tolerance" policy, police on Friday warned about six men who live under the bridge to clean up their act or face possible arrest. Repeated warnings about crimes — including public intoxication, public exposure, disorderly conduct, public urination, littering and harassment — have gone unheeded, police said. Business owners and motorists near the highway, which separates Baylor University and downtown Waco, are complaining more frequently, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald. The men have long used the concrete island under the bridge as their refuge. Mission Waco even holds church services there.Report: Haart Patents Ignoring Long-Term Care DALLAS (AP) — The evidence has become overwhelming that heart patients help themselves greatly by cutting their weight, exercising, quitting smoking and taking other preventive measures, according to a panel of experts. The report by a multidisciplinary panel of the American Heart Association recommended comprehensive follow-up treatment. However, the panel warned that most heart disease victims who should be getting help for high cholesterol, blood pressure and other problems aren’t. A statement from the panel, offering suggestions for long-term care, was published in Saturday's issue of the association’s journal Circulation and July’s Journal of the American College of Cardiology, which endorsed the report. The report, released Friday, evaluated previous studies and said they show only about one heart patient in three maintains preventative measures over the longterm. Many patients don’t even do simple things like using aspirin to help prevent future heart attacks or arterial blockages, one doctor involved in the report saidPanhandla Vats Oat Health Car* Through Invontlvo Satollito MEMPHIS, Texas (AP) — Glen Bowman used to face a formidable excursion anytime the World War II veteran needed to see a doctor. His farm in Estelline lay a two-hour drive from the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Amarillo. He came to expect crowds and long delays in the waiting room. . But now Bowman, 71, can make a quick jaunt to Memphis for VA health care. The Hall County Rural Health Clinic—in the first such arrangement of its kind in the nation — has become a handy medical outpost for many Texas Panhandle veterans. “It’s the greatest thing you could ever do for a veteran,” Bowman declared during a visit for a blood test at the clinic 75 miles southeast of Amarillo. Physician assistant Ray Malphurs has treated about 500 veterans since the clinic entered a contract with the Amarillo medical center in January 1994.Civil Righto Croups Mobilia* to Rollback of Rights Cains WASHINGTON (AP) — When the Supreme Court ruled that political districts drawn especially to elect minorities are unconstitutional, an umbrella civil rights organization cranked out a letter to every U.S. senator. But in the letter, sent Friday, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights advocated a different cause. It urged senators to oppose Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole’s “meat-axe” proposal to eliminate federal affirmative action programs, in light of an earlier Supreme Court decision. The appeal is part of an unusually swift mobilization by civil rights activists to combat a trio of Supreme Court decisions they* believe could unravel 30 years’ worth of civil rights gains. Thursday, the court struck down a Georgia redistricting plan that could invite challenges to minority political districts all over die country. Earlier, the court jeopardized many federal affirmative action programs by saying Congress must abide by the same strict anti-bias standards as state and local governments. And the justices made it easier for school systems to get out from under federal supervision of school desegregation. “We are reeling from the aftermath,” said Samuel Canadine Jr., director of the National Association of Minority Contractors. “Now is the time for our president and other leaders to exercise the political will that they seem to have, thus far, been reluctant to do.”Aff or Deportations, Foreign Priests Fear Moro Frletlon With Government SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS, Mexico (AP) — Eleven foreign priests and nuns have resubmitted their immigration papers to Mexican authorities, fearful that the expulsion of three priests last week could signal more trouble. The clergy from the Roman Catholic diocese in the strife-torn southern state of Chiapas handed their visas to federal authorities on Friday, saying they worried that deportations hint at rising government antagonism against the church. “The situation has gotten worse,” Father Paul Nadolny of Waukesha, Wis., said as a government clerk typed up his forms on a battered manual typewriter. “It’s been in the local newspapers and on the radio that we have been involved in land takeovers, promoting violence,” the 41-year-old priest told The Associated Press. “It’s not true.” Nadolny, a priest of the Missionaries of the Divine Word, is among 15 foreign clergy still working in the Chiapas diocese, where an 18-month Indian rebellion still smolders.Lateet Salvo Fired In Plcanto Sauce War SAN ANTIONIO (AP) — Van de Waite Farms Inc. has fired another salvo in the Great Picante Sauce War. The 90-year-old San Antonio company has launched an advertising campaign with more than an oblique reference to Pace Foods, another Alamo City-based salsa maker. In radio advertisements. Van de Waite President Larry Friesenhahn advises picante-sauce lovers that their palates might prefer a sauce not manufactured in New Jersey. Pace’s picante sauce is manufactured in San Antonio, but the company was acquired in January by Camden, N.J.-based Campbell Soup Co. In New Jersey, some people “think pico de gallo is a famous Spanish explorer," Friesenhahn says in the commercial. Youngsters stop in Houston on risky trip to Cuba { HOUSTON (AP) —Members of a group of 42 students and adult leaders who risked going to jail to travel to (tuba say the U.S. government should lift its 13-year-old travel ban to the Communist nation. ; “I think it should be our choice whether we can go to Cuba and not the pvemment’s choice," said Nathalie iller, 13, of Berkeley, Calif., during 4 stop at Houston’s Intercontinental Airport, where 39 group members boarded flights home without hassle. ‘ Three people, two of whom are Chelsea Clinton’s schoolmates, were eh route to Miami on return home from the trip, part of a two-year protest tyaged by the Freedom to Travel Campaign, said the group’s spokeswoman, Teresa Walsh. Richard Newcomb, director of the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, had sent the participants a warning letter threatening IO years in jail and up to $250,000 fines. ; However, they apparently made it through U.S. Customs handily on Friday. According to many in the group, they were just “waved through” even though it is illegal to travel to Cuba. Sixteen-year-old Sarah Park and Jody Avirgan, 14, both students at Sid-well Friends School of Washington, which is attended by President Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, and trip coordinator Pamela Montanan, went through U.S. Customs in die Bahamas. They were detained briefly in Nassau, where their passport documents were copied and they were talked to before being allowing to continue on to Miami. The students say the trip is an attempt to show that the ban is unnecessary and dated. It was Avirgan’s mother who inspired the group to make the trip. A letter signed by 17 conservative congressmen that was sent to the Treasury Department last week. The congressmen urged the government to prosecute the youngsters.

Man acquitted in intoxication manslaughter caseProsecutor vows to bring more charges DALLAS (AP) — Jurors deadlocked in favor of acquittal in the intoxication manslaughter trial of a 19-year-old man who was behind the wheel of a sports car when it spun out of control and hit a tree, killing his girlfriend. However, prosecutors said after Friday’s mistrial that they plan to retry the case against William Wade McFarland, which is believed to be the first in the state brought to court under the new intoxication manslaughter law. The law took effect Sept. I, doubling the maximum punishment allowed in drunken-driving cases resulting in death. McFarland, who is free on bond, is charged in the Oct. 8 death of Laura Welbome, a popular drill team captain at J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson. “He’ll be tried on the same offense," said Assistant District Attorney Rick Jackson. “What the actual charge will be at that time I can’t comment on.” Jurors had the option of convicting McFarland of criminally negligent homicide, a lesser offense. The panel, which deliberated five days, was hung 11-to-1 in favor of acquittal, said defense attorney Jim Burnham. Burnham blamed faulty anti-lock brakes for the crash. McFarland was legally intoxicated — with a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent — almost three hours after the crash, Jackson said. Under the new intoxication manslaughter law, DWI cases once considered involuntary manslaughter were upgraded from a third- to second-degree felony. That doubled the maximum penalty from IO years in prison and a $10,000 fine to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Richard Alpen, an assistant district attorney in Tarrant County, said the Dallas case was breaking new ground. “It’s probably the first time that law has been brought into a court in Texas,” said Alpen, who teaches at the Texas Department of Public Safety DWI School and also trains prosecutors about DWI prosecution at seminars offered by the Texas District and County Attorneys Association. ,i *i v» •* *i i I * I t I * I J A.
