The Lake Dunlap Volunteer Fire Department had only one alarm this past week — five large round bales of hay on fire at the end of East Zipp Road. After the third trip back for a rekindling and more than a thousand gallons of water and 18 man hours, the fire was controlled. Probable cause of fire was children playing with matches.

Mattox hopes bill will keep eye on charities
AUSTIN AP Attorney General Jim Mattox wants to turn up the heat on charities and charitable founda tions with a bill that would strip them of their tax exempt status if they don't file tax statements with his of fice
“I am certain some of the most egregious activity that is taking place has not been detected and w ill not be detected,' Mattox told a Capitol news conference Thursday We will not know about them unless we have some kind of auditing capability ”
Mattox said charitable organza tions and foundations would become more accountable with the passage of the bill sponsored by Sen John Whitmire. D-Houston. and Rep Juan Hinojosa. I) McAllen The bill would require the state’s 82.000 tax exempt charities with a net income of more than $25 (xxi to file federal tax returns with the attorney general's office The foundations also would have to supply the attorney general's office with names of the organization’s trustees and business operations documents •'Today there are 1.785 private foundations that are operating in Texas They control at least and thi* is a vers conservative estimate $6 2 billion in assets Those foundations in the last year a number of them have gotten themselves into serious troubles and difficulties. Mattox said
Currently the state s 1.785 private foundations, or charities that give away money are required to file tax statements with the attorney general s office but the requirement is difficult to enforce. Mattox said The other 80,132 charities in the state, which give away services do not have to file Charities that fail to file also would face possible civil penalties and a lawsuit under the bill. Mattox said "I would hope that this legislation would allow the state of Texas to re mind these foundations that they re public entities they serve at the pleasure of people of the state of Texas and as a last wish of the in dividuals who set them up,’ said Whitmire Under the proposals foundations with net incomes of $50 (MW or more would have to pay a filing fee of $75. or I percent of net income which Mattox said would raise about $1 million in revenue
