Our theme for June is weddings, we have run wedding pictures and anniversary photos. (AA-97-039) was last weeks picture and it did not receive one call! Someone is bound to recognize the 1957 picture of the .is couple on their 50th anniversary. Give us a call if you know who they are.
(AA-97-40) our trio of girls at summer camp was partially identified. Brenda Borchers Freeman called in to let us know that is her in the center. We do not know who the two other girls are yet. This picture was taken in the mid 1970’s at Coreth’s Ranch at a Girl Scout Camp. If you know who the other two scouts are please give us a ring and let us have their names.
We found a picture we believe is a wedding photo. (AA-97-041) is a beautiful newly wed couple we have no clues for this picture, no names, no dates, nothing! We would like to attach some information to this picture.
Our second picture is a classic! (AA-97-042) is titles on the back as “Contractors” 1974. This picture is wonderful. It does date itself with those side bums! We just have to get some names for these handsome workers. If you know these guys give us a call and let us know their names and what kind of contractors they are. You may want to give them a call and let them have a flash back to the 70’s!
Two things to remind you of. The 4th of July parade is coming up! Mark your calendars and be a part of a local tradition and a whole lot of fun. Second the New Braunfels Historic Museum Association Rummage Sale will be here soon as well. If you have items that you would like to donate to raise money for a great cause. Give one of the Historic Museums a call, they will let you know drop off points or schedule a pick up.
As always, KEEP READING! ... KEEP REMEMBERING! ... KEEP CALLING! ... 629-1900! Or stop in at the Sophienburg Archives 200 N. Seguin, The Old Citv Hall.
Mexican^ citizen executed in Texas
By MICHAEL GRACZYK
Associated Press Writer
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — Mexican government protests and demonstrations by supporters failed to keep convicted murderer and Mexican citizen Ireneo Montoya from the Texas death chamber.
Montoya, 30, received lethal injection Wednesday evening for the 1985 stabbing and beating death of a Rio Grande Valley man who had given Montoya and a companion a ride.
“I wait for you in Heaven,” Montoya told his father and a woman who claimed to be his wife, both of them sobbing, as they watched him die. “I am at peace with God. Fight for the good.”
Just before a doctor arrived in the death chamber to pronounce him dead, a prison chaplain removed a prayer card from inside the inmate’s shirt so the physician could listen for a heartbeat.
Outside, a crowd of about 60 supporters chanted in Spanish, “Assassins!" as witnesses emerged from the prison.
Montoya also released a handwritten statement in which he expressed love for his family.
“I apologize and beg for forgiveness to whomever I had offended, hurt and disrepected,” he said.
The execution came less than an hour after Texas Gov. George W. Bush refused the inmate’s request for a 30-day reprieve. Bush took the action after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected I lth-hour appeals from the inmate.
Montoya became the third Texas inmate put to death this week and the 24th this year, extending the state’s record number of executions for a single year.
Montoya, one of ll Mexicans on the Texas death row, was not the first Mexican citizen put to death in the state. Ramon Montoya, who was not related to him, was executed in March 1993 for killing a Dallas police officer.
