Jenna Bush loses license for 30 days
AUSTIN (AP) — President Bush’s 19-year-old daughter Jenna was fined $600 Friday and her driver’s license was suspended for 30 days on charges of underage drinking and trying to use someone else’s ID to buy liquor.
The University of Texas student did not attend the back-to back hearings held to settle two separate incidents.
Defense attorney Bill Allison entered a no-contest plea to a charge that Bush tried to use someone else’s identification to
buy alcohol at a popular Mexican restaurant May 29.
U.S. hands over Okinawa rape suspect
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration has agreed to Japan’s demands that it turn over an Air Force sergeant suspected of raping a Japanese woman in Okinawa, U.S. officials said Thursday.
The U.S. agreement to turn over the suspect, identified by Japanese authorities as Air Force Sgt. Timothy Woodland, had been delayed several days as U.S. officials sought assur
ances that he would have legal representation and an interpreter while in custody.
The suspect, stationed at Kadena Air Base, is accused of raping a 20-year-old Okinawan woman June 29 in a parking lot outside a row of trendy bars in Chatan town.
He has denied the allegations.
Revelers kick off annual bull bash
PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — At the stroke of noon Friday, in a storm of champagne spray, ketchup bombs and joyful
noise, crazed crowds opened yet another San Fermin, the ancient bull bash that Hemingway made famous.
The traditional “chupinazo” — “rocket blast” in Spanish — signaled the start of 280 hours of nonstop partying, punctuated early each morning by a madcap dash through medieval streets along with six large bulls.
Tens of thousands came for the festive first day.
Organizers expect more than a minion to show up before the traditional end, a mournful song called, “Pobre de Mi” — «
“Poor Me.*"CAREER/From 1A
Andy Anderson and Shorty Dees oversaw the jail and its average of 25 prisoners then.
Schroeder worked as a secretary and went through several clerical positions before moving into the jail. She went there, she said, for the money. It paid $400 a month more than her previous position.
She explored taking a position with the FBI, but that would have involved a commute to San Antonio and a raise of only $50 a month.
She stayed with then-sheriff Walter Fellers, whom she was always a little in awe of, she said.
“I respected him so much. I
loved his stories. His old friends would come into the office, and they’d talk about the times they’d had,” she said.
Schroeder, who was certified as a jailer in 1979, became a corporal in 1988. Later, when a new sheriff came to the county, she was promoted to sergeant.
In her work, she serves by dealing with a narrow band of the public — those society chooses to incarcerate.
“They’re just like you and me. They’re mad when they first get here, and some of them can take it out on us. I’m here to keep them safely and securely. I make sure they’re fed when they’re supposed to be and go to court
when they’re supposed to go. I don’t take the things they sometimes say personally. I can go home at night. They can’t,” she said.
Recognition, like the plaque she got from County Judge Danny Scheel this week, means a lot to Schroeder. But what means more, she said, is knowing she’s had a positive impact on the lives of some of the men and women she’s guarded.
Once in awhile, she gets good news, like from the man who told her husband, Guadalupe County deputy Billy Schroeder, about his experience in the Comal County Jail.
“He said, You know, your wife
steered me in the right direction. She showed me there was something better.’ I felt great. It made me feel good that I wa§ doing something for someone,” she said.
Jail Chief David Ott knevy Schroeder since before the days she went to the Chandelier —-he went to school with her.
“I graduated from Canyon High School with Twyla,” Ott said. “I went all through high school with her. We’ve known each other for a long, long time!
“When I was a reserve deputy, she was here. She’s a world of knowledge about the jail and she’s very dependable. You can always count on her.”
Pat Green and friends tear it up at River Road Icehouse, today beginning at 4 p.m.
