New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 16, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, July 16, 2005Discovery’s launch delayed until late next week — at least CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA said Friday it would not try to launch the space shuttle Discovery until late next week — at the earliest. Officials were no closer to figuring out why a fuel gauge acted up shortly before launch time on Wednesday. The space agency was backing out of the countdown and has given up trying to launch Discovery anytime soon, said spokesman Bruce Buckingham. Mission managers planned to meet later in the day to plot their next strategy and settle on a target launch date. NASA had held out hope, however slim, that it might be able to take another shot at launching Discovery on Sunday or early next week, returning a shuttle to space for the first time since the Columbia disaster nearly 21/2 years ago. But with engineers no closer to figuring out the malfunctioning fuel gauge, the agency had no choice but to call for a lengthy standdown. If Discovery isn t flying by the end of July, the shuttle must remain grounded until September to ensure a daylight liftoff for good camera views — a requirement for spotting any damage during launch. That s one of the many changes called for by the board that investigated the 2003 Columbia disaster. From staff, wire reports TEXASEL PASO SPEEDING SUV KILLS 2 CHILDREN AT BORDER CROSSING — TVvo young Mexican children were killed, and their mother and two sisters were hospitalized Friday after a sport utility vehicle ran over a family of street vendors while speeding toward a border crossing into the U.S., a Customs spokesman said. A 19-year-old man was jailed in El Paso on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, said Roger Maier, spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. Investigators said the family was walking from the international bridge back to Ciudad Juarez about 3 a.m. when they were hit. The ages of the killed children were not known. An 11-year-old girl and her mother were taken to a Juarez hospital, and a 2-year-old girl was taken to an El Paso hospital. The father of the children was not injured. Authorities said the SUV didn’t stop after the accident, and the man was arrested while waiting to cross the border. I lls identity was not released. NATIONWASHINGTON FEDERAL APPEALS COURT RULES AGAINST DETAINEE — A federal appeals court put the Bush administration’s military commissions for terrorist suspects back on track Friday, saying a detainee at the Guantanamo Bay prison who once was Osama bin-ladens driver can stand trial. A three-judge panel ruled 3-0 against Salim Ahmed I lamdan, whose case was halted by a federal judge on grounds that commission procedures were unlawful. “Congress authorized the military commission that will try Hamdan,” said the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The protections of the 1949 Geneva Convention do not apply to al-Qaida and its members, so I lamdan does not have a right to enforce its provisions in court, the appeals judges said. President Bush created the military commissions after the Sept. II attacks, opening a legal channel for alleged al-Qaida terrorists and their associates to be tried for war crimes. WORLDST. GEORGE S, Grenada HURRICANE EMILY CHURNS TOWARD JAMAICA - I lurricane Emily weakened slightly f riday as it moved through the Caribbean toward Jamaica after shattering windows, flooding hospitals and killing at least one person in Grenada. Emily was downgraded to a Category 3 with winds of 125 mph Friday morning after it cleared the Windward Islands, unleashing heavy surf, gusty winds and torrential rain hundreds of miles away. The National Hurricane Center in Miami projected the hurricane would move just south of Jamaica on Saturday, pass the Cayman Islands and hit Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula Sunday night. If it continues on the same path, it will make landfall sometime Wednesday between Tux-pan, Mexico, and Galveston, Texas, about a 600 mile span, hurricane center spokesman Frank Lepore said. The second major hurricane of the Atlantic season after Dennis, Emily’s winds reached 135 mph at one point Friday, making it what meteorologist Stacy Stewart called a “very rare Category 4 hurricane iii the Caribbean Sea in the month of July."
