(Photo by Erik Karlsson) By THOMAS WAGNER Associated Press Writer Twenty-one Americans who were captured behind enemy lines headed for home Saturday, as a top U.S. official tried to use the allied victory to nudge Kuwait toward democracy and improve security in the Middle East. Saturday also was a good day for some of the journalists who covered the Persian Gulf War and the civil unrest that followed in Iraq. After about a week’s captivity in Iraq, 40 correspondents, including ll Americans, and two men identified as U.S. servicemen drove to freedom in Jordan. As Iraq released its last known American captives, anti-government unrest in Iraq, first reported more than a week ago, continued to spread and intensify, according to opposition sources and travelers. “It’s a real massacre,” one person who left Iraq said of the fighting in the southern city of Basra, Iraq’s second largest. “The deaths arc in thousands. The houses have been leveled.” The harshness of Saddam Hussein’s crackdown on the uprising prompted Washington to warn him not to use chemical weapons against the rebels, as he did against a popular uprising in Iraq several years ago. Some American soldiers stationed in occupied Iraq are giving insurgents guns and ammunition, U.S. military intelligence officers told The Associated Press Saturday. At military bases across the United States, meanwhile, American citizens continued to warmly welcome returning GIS. “I think it’s time people get back into patriotism,” said Dave Rice, organizer of a parade in Scottsbluff, Neb. In all, 4,000 American soldiers headed home Friday to bases in Texas, California, Maine, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Louisiana. More homecomings occurred Saturday in California, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan and Texas. In Detroit, Air Force Capt. Steve Tate, the first American to shoot down an Iraqi plane in the war, received a hero’s welcome. “Any of us who went over were willing to give our lives for that beautiful flag right there,” Tate told 1,000 cheering supporters at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Meanwhile, the 21 former American POWs left the Persian Gulf region aboard a VIP jetliner and a medical evacuation plane. “I feel real good,” Army Spc. Melissa Rathbun-Nealy of Newaygo, Mich., said before heading home to her family and fiance. Her fellow POWs gave her a surprise 21st birthday party before they left on a 21-hour flight. Top Bush administration officials will be among those greeting the 19 men and two women Sunday at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington. As they left the gulf region Saturday, Secretary of State James A. Baker III continued his diplomatic mission to help chart Middle East’s future after the war. After touring the battered Kuwait City from the air, Baker spent about three hours in the Kuwaiti capital. Parks board seeking more LORA property input By KATHRYN SCHOEMER Staff Writer New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will conduct a workshop Monday mght with New Braunfels City Council to discuss future developments of an 18-acre land tract leased by the Lower Colorado River Authority. “We now have a conceptual master plan with certain recreational uses and we want to get input from the council,’’ said Dennis Sims, a landscape architect for the project. Sims of J.T. Dunkin and Associates of Dallas'has drawn up preliminary drawings of recreational usages for the property development. Members of the parks board met with Sims during a public hearing in January to look over the plans. The master plan proposes to develop the tract of land, adjacent to Landa Park, with recreational facilities such as picnic areas, shelters, a small amphitheater, a botanical garden and additional hiking and biking trails. After a master plan is formulated and approved by the City Council, the proposed plan will be presented to LCRA for approval. The workshop Monday begins at 6:30 p.m. in the New Braunfels Municipal Building Courtroom, 424 S.
