New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 2, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas 6A New Braunfels Herald-Ze/funy Wednesday, March 2,1983 Trooper killed Family of slain officer given Memorial Cross ALAMO, Texas (AF) — The family of a Department of Public Safety trooper who was Killed in the line of duty by an allegedly drunken motorist has been presented the department's first Memorial Cross More than 500 people, nearly half of them wearing law enforcement uniforms, mourned the death of DPS trooper Ernesto Alanis at his funeral Tuesday. Alanis had been commended three times for his efforts to stop drunken driving in the lower Rio Grande Valley. Alalus, 26, was killed Sunday as he attempted to qui slum another motorist suspected of being drunk, authorities said. Before the afternoon service, Alanis’ family was presented the Memorial Cross, an honor created by the department Jan. I, 1982, “as a method of recognizing one of our officers killed in the line of duty," saidSgt. Stan Clark of McAllen. lbs death was a “tragic irony," the Rev. Maurice Dime said during the brief funeral service at the Community Church of Alamo. “While investigating a DWI, he was killed by a inotoi cst who himself was intoxicated," Hime said. “Ernie made the supreme sacrifice in the service of his community and state," he said. “He was a man whose job it was to keep our roads and our hi ghways safe.” Law enforcement officers, said Hime, “often have to enduro abuse, scorn and long hours ... for a thankless job” Alalus' death, said Hime, “is the result of living in a world full of sin.” Two DPS troopers stood formally on either side of Alula*' open casket as mourners filed into the church and past the body of the young trooper dressed iii his law enforcement uniform. Officers closed the casket shortly before the service and a Texas flag was draped over it. Hime eulogized the officer as law enforcement officers from across the Rio Grande Valley and as far away as I^iiedo stood at attention both inside the chun Ii and outside. Some coffin bearers cried as they carried the casket from the church. Ile was a special person, not only as a trooper. but as a human being,” DPS Sgt. Stan Clark said at gravesite services in Pharr. “We need to be ready when our time comes,” he said. The Texas flag was removed from the casket by officers who folded it formally then presented it to Alanis’ sobbing wife and family. DPS spokesman Larry Todd of Austin said Monday that Alanis had a “career goal” to get drunks off the roads. “And he was very good at it. “It was very unusual for a trooper to have three commendations in a short time like that," Todd said. Officers said Alanis was struck about I a.m. Sunday after he had stopped a car heading north of Texas Highway 336 about three miles north of McAllen. Alanis had walked up to interview the driver of the car when a vehicle heading south on the wrong side of the road struck the first car and the trooper, officers said. The driver of the first car passed an intoxication test and was later released, Todd said. Salvador Sarsen Luna, 36, of Edinburg, was charged Monday with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the case. He was later released on $25,000 bond, said a spokeswoman at the Hidalgo County jail in Edinburg. Luna was given a test to determine intoxication levels shortly after the accident, said Clark. He would not reveal results of the test, but said investigators charge that Luna “was under the influence of an intoxicating beverage" when his car struck Alanis. Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra said Tuesday that authorities do not have to prove Luna was drunk to seek an involuntary manslaughter conviction “because of the reckless nature of the act." Neither Guerra, Peace Justice Apolonio Gutierrez nor spokesmen in the Hidalgo County jail knew whether Luna had hired an attorney. Involuntary manslaughter is a third-degree felony punishable by a maximum penalty of IO years in prison and a $5,000 fine. First offense DWI is a Class B misdemeanor. House making in 'pork-barrel' WASHINGTON (AID — Congressmen, sensitive to criticism that a $4.6 billion recession-relief bill contains pork-barrel" provisions, are seeking changes that would add health care for the unem- p|o> i ii and more money for mass transit. Quick congressional action seems certain on the legislation, uhuh includes money for public works projects, repair of federal buildings, road improvements and emergency relief for jobless persons. \ oles are .scheduled Thursday iii the House, and Majority I adet' Howard Baker says the Senate will go to work on the appropriations bill early next week, Before then. Rep. James Howard. D-N.J., chairman of the transportation and Public Works Committee, is expected to urge $300 million above the $luo million now in tile legislation for mass transit. Bathe! than have the money go to the districts of pectin members of tile appropriations committee, Howard will seek to have it distributed more evenly around the country. Some Republicans are trying to kill all parts of the legislation which do not help areas of high unemployment. The) sa) congressional districts that changes relief bill don’t suffer from high joblessness shouldn’t qualify for public works projects included in the bill. One likely addition to the bill vould come from Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., who wants about $200 million in public service health care for recession victims whose health insurance has run out. Sources, speaking on condition they not be named, said Tuesday that House leaders w ill probably agree to add the health care money. Obey s proposal was rejected by leaders of the Democrat-controlled appropriations committee last week. There are also likely to be efforts from members of both parties to restore cuts in food stamps and aid for persons unable to meet mortgages on their houses. Some Republicans have complained the jobs bill contains too many pork-barrel projects. “This is a piece of paper for everyone who has a pet project," said Rep. Silvio Conte, R-Mass. “We are going to pour dollars down a rat hole like corn." The House acted on another jobs bill Tuesday, approving 301-87 legislation creating an American Conservation Corps, a New Deal revival designed to produce 100,000 jobs for young people in federal parklands. Social security Committee to refer retirement age to full House WASHINGTON (AID House tax wi itl l s have embraced a $165 biih*»ii package to make Social Sic al ity solvent again, but they arc leaving it to the full House to iettle a squabble over raising the rein eluent age Hie House Wavs and Means Committee was wrapping up work today on the rescue package which embodies tile bipartisan recoiiunendations of the National Commission on Soc ial Security Reform It gtces to the House floor next week The coumunittee was deciding todav w bother to attach to tile bill provisions to revamp Medicare and extend unemployment benefits for up to 16 weeks. The committee, going over a measure drafted last week by its Social Security subcommittee, has virtually rubber-stamped commission recommendations for tug! cr pa) roll taxes, a freeze on cost-of-living increases, a levy on retirees’ benefits and mandatory coverage for new federal workers and employees of nonprofit organizations. However, the commission left it to Congress to settle on a method to wipe out Social Security’s anticipated deficit over the next 75 years as well as devise a “fail safe” mechanism to carry the system through hard times. The Democratic majority on the subcommittee last week sidestepped the issue of whether to raise the retirement age to keep the system solvent into the next century, voting instead to gradually reduce retirees’ initial benefits 5 percent over eight years beginning in ‘2000, and raise tile payroll tax 0.24 percentage points beginning in 2015. While the full committee left that provision intact, Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, IMH., the committee chairman, offered his personal guarantee to his colleagues that the House Rules Committee will allow the full House to vote oil the retirement age issue. “We have 98 percent of our problem settled, except that one issue,” said Rep. J.J. Pickle, D-Texas, chairman of the Social Security subcommittee. “That issue, I think, appropriately ought to be settled on the House floor.” Rep. Claude Pepper, D-Fla., the 82-year-old chairman of the Rules panel, which sets the procedures for legislative debate, fiercely opposes a a change in the retirement age as being a benefit cut. Pickle, however, has repeatedly pressed for raising the retirement age from 65, and said he would offer the amendment on the House floor. Priest asks for gun turn-in SAN ANGEIXJ (AP) - A Catholic priest is urging his parishioners to turn their guns over to hun in tile wake of two slayings here, according to a published report. Tile Rev Joseph H Uecker, who says he will in turn give the weapons to police, is angered by la*t week s shootings, the San Antigo Standard Times reported in a copyright story Tuesday. Speaking to 250 mourners at a funeral for Roy Canava, one of the shooting victims, Uecker asked when such killings would stop. Uecker said five of 29 funerals held at his church last year were for gunshot victims. Canava, 20, was shot in the heart at Glenmore Park Thursday evening. Earlier Thursday, Jessie Salazar, 41, was shot and killed on a San Angelo street in an ALL PURPOSE SALAD OIL HONEST TO. GOODNESS MEAT YODHS WESSON I-AT    BELIEVABLE    PRICES!
