New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 8, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Thursday, June 8,1995 ■ Herald-Zeitung ■ 3 Marines rescue downed fighter pilot in Bosnia A ■\ SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina *(AP) — Braving missile and small-iarms fire, U.S. Marines flew a heli- • copter info hostile Serb territory and ^rescued an American F-16 fighter pilot Jhot down six days ago by rebel Serbs. Capt. Scott F. O’Grady of Spokane, Jf/ash., was found alive and well near ■Where his plane went down southeast lif Bihac in a Bosnian Seth stronghold. Adm. Leighton Smith, commander ^Jf NATO forces in southern Europe, '$id a pilot from O’Grady’s squadron "was flying an F-16 over the area at ,3:30 a.m. today (8:30 p.m. EDT • Wednesday), when he received a radio *4all from O’Grady on the ground. The U.S. military mounted a big rescue operation at dawn and two CH-53 >.{ielicopters landed 50 yards from where the 29-year-old O’Grady was hiding in the woods. He dashed out of the trees to the nearest helicopters and was hauled aboard by Brig. Gen. Marty Bemdt. A Serb missile had blown apart O’Grady’s fighter jet on Friday as he flew a NATO mission over northern Bosnia. His fate had been unknown. The downing of O’Grady’s plane added to tensions following the abductions of hundreds of U.N. peacekeepers by Bosnian Serbs retaliating for May 25-26 NATO air attacks on their ammunition depots outside Pale, the rebel headquarters nine miles from Sarajevo. Today’s rescue mission included a Marine team and CH-53 and Cobra helicopters from the USS Kearsarge, which had moved into the Adriatic Sea. They were escorted by F-l 8s and electronic warfare planes. “We had the whole shooting match up there,’’ including Cobra helicopters, Harriers, AWACS radar planes and other support aircraft, Smith said at a news conference at U.S. Naval Headquarters in London. Bemdt, who pulled O’Grady on board, “is a pretty strapping young guy,” Smith said. “He saw the pilot come running out of the woods, so he grabbed him and snatched him aboard and they got out of there.” Bemdt said a missile was fired at the helicopter after O’Grady was picked up. Smith said it missed. He said small arms fire at the helicopters also missed. O’Grady was flown to the Kearsarge, an amphibious assault ship that has a 600-bcd hospital, and the medical report is “very good,” Smith said. Asked how O’Grady survived a six-day ordeal after being shot down, the admiral said, “Whatever it was, it sure was right.”    / “He maintained his cool,” said Smith. “He’s very smart, he’s very determined and very gutsy to have evaded for as long as he did using the equipment that he had.”    ? Stacey O’Grady, the rescued pilot’s sister, spoke to her brother early this morning. “He can’t quite understand what all the big fuss is about,” she said. She told CBS-T\Mhat O’Grady is dehydrated and has a slight bum on his neck, but is otherwise in good condition. “He said that he was only able to cat about three spoonfuls of food,” she said from Washington, D C. At NATO headquarters in Brussels, Gen. John Shalikashvili, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said of the pilot: “I am told that he is well, that he has a six-day beard and that he has a small bum on the back of his neck as a result of exiting the aircraft.” O’Grady is assigned to the 555th Fighter Squadron at Aviano Air Base in northeastern Italy. He’ll be taken there from the Kearsarge, which is carrying members of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit who were sent to the Adriatic from the Mediterranean on May 29. President Clinton called O’Grady’s parents in Seattle to share their happiness, “All Americans rejoice with mc at the successful rescue of Capt. Scott O’Grady tonight and join his parents in their relief after days of uncertainty and anguish,” Clinton said in a statement. “Capt. O’Grady’s bravery and skill arc an inspiration,” Clinton said. “So arc the bravery and skill of those who took part in the operation to rescue him. They arc all American heroes.” Defense ministers of the 12 NATO countries meanwhile were meeting today in Brussels, Belgium, to consider plans cither to evacuate 22,500 embattled peacekeepers from Bosnia or send a force to protect them. Texas Briefs I Men Accused off Videotaping Sexual Acts With Teen-Age Girls HOUSTON (AP) — At least five *teen-age girls were lured by an apart- * Jient maintenance man to the apart- - talent of a paroled sex offender so they - jould have sexual encounters that were videotaped by the parolee, police say. * « Pasadena police said Wednesday •ihey believe parolee Richard Jennings, 52, also had sex with some of the girls. J "He was charged with sexual assault of J a child and promotion of child pomog- * raphy. 1 Complex employee Vernon Vercher, > 19, was charged with sexual assault } of a child, police said. } At least five girls ranging in age «, from 14 to 17 were involved in the J incidents, according to police.

George W. •> Bush has signed into law a package I of criminal justice legislation, including , measures to limit appeals of death row J inmates and create weapon-free zones J around schools. v    “These new laws will help get career « criminals and drug dealers off our J-.streets and away from our schools,” Bush said. “They will make Texas safer for all our citizens." At a new state jail facility in San Antonio, Bush Wednesday signed bills fine-tuning the penal code and changing Texas Department of Criminal Justice rules regarding inmate privileges. The law limiting death row appeals aims to shave about two years off inmate incarcerations and save taxpayers about $50,000 per inmate, according to the governor’s office. Texas’ 401 death row inmates have waited an average of eight years between conviction and execution. T«xas-Bas*d NAFTA Laad-ara Prepared To Oversee Treaty’s Effects DALLAS (AP) — A pair of Texas-based officials involved in the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement said the treaty’s goals are beginning to come into reality. The chief executive officer of the treaty-sponsored North American Development Bank, known as NADBank, and the new NAFTA Labor Secretariat described economic opportunities offered by the agreement at a luncheon sponsored by the Dallas Chamber of Commerce. The San Antonio-based NADBank and the Border Environment Cooperation Commission have identified 120 potential projects, mostly devoted to water treatment and conservation in an area that’s been ravaged by drought this decade, Albedo Phillips, the bank’s CEO and managing director, said Wednesday. The projects, which would cost more than $10 billion, won’t all be financed by NADBank, he said. Phillips downplayed the chance that the devaluation of the Mexican peso could hinder that country’s contributions to the fund. GOR Hopeful Has High Hopes in Texas AUSTIN (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Lamar Alexander says he’s getting encouragement in the home state of rival candidate Sen. Phil Gramm. Alexander, the former Tennessee governor, said he hopes to do well enough in the Texas primary next year to earn at least a share of the state’s GOP national convention delegates. “If Sen. Gramm’s in the race, I expect him to do very well and probably carry Texas. But there are two opportunities in Texas,” Alexander said Wednesday while touring three Texas cities. “First, if he doesn’t get half the votes, they split the delegates up — and a portion of Texas delegates is more than most states have. "‘Second, if Gramm is not an option, I think the choice is going to be between Sen. (Bob) Dole and me — and I think Texans are going to want to vote for someone who has a real chance to be president.” 95 Graduates Bring This Ad In and receive 50% OFF on framing your diploma at Kylefs Kustom Komers 839CIH35-W Walnut Business Cantar 210-620-4452 JQoefaeat European Facials 620-0615 • •»: s i. * SS y - v k k. . 1 v t * 1 i V    . k % 1 V    .

The step toward tapping a surface water source is something San Antonio’s neighbors have been urging for years as the city has feuded with the rest of the region over the natural underground aquifer. Currently, the aquifer is San Antonio’s sole drinking water source. To the west, farmers use the aquifer to irrigate crops. To the east, the aquifer supplies water for tourist attractions Hill Country Roofing ‘They’ll destroy us farmers is what they’ll do,’ — Rodney Reagan, Uvalde County Underground Water Conservation District president. and feeds springs where endangered fish, salamanders and plants live. In April, the San Antonio Water System along with the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority, San Antonio River Authority, Bexar Metropolitan Water District and Canyon Regional Water Authority agreed to pursue a plan to pump Guadalupe River basin water to San Antonio. The deal hinged on creation of an Edwards Aquifer Authority by the Texas Legislature. Last week, Gov. George W. Bush signed a bill provid ing for a 15-mcmber, elected authority to license wells, broker water and limit pumping from the 176-milc-long aquifer. Farmers who rely on the aquifer vehemently opposed the legislation. “We have been raped with a capital R,” said farmer Maurice Rimkus of Uvalde County. “They’ll destroy us farmers is what they’ll do,” added Rodney Reagan, president of the Uvalde County Underground Water Conservation District. Rimkus predicts doom for San Antonio’s much-touted surface water plan. “Promises are promises, and they usually don’t materialize,” he said. However, Aceves said representatives of arca water entities were to meet as early as this week to work on the next phase of the project.
