Suspect charged in second burglaryBy GARY P. CARROLL Hereld-Zeltung
A 24-year-old New Braunfels man charged Thursday with the Fab. 6 burglary of Rhoads Interiors is also being held in connection with the burglary of another local business, according to New Braunfels police officials.
Haul Martinos Jr. of New Braunfels has also been charged with the burglary of Granzin's, according to Police Chief Dick Headon.
Martinos is is also being question regarding a recent break-in at Ute Brauntex Theater in the downtown area, Headon said.
Martinez is being held in the Comal County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Headon said Thursday an arrest warrant was issued by Judge David Perkins for Martinez following an anonymous tip from Crime Stoppers identifying the man as a suspect in the burglary of Rhoads Interiors.
Martinez was arrested by New Braunfels Detective Mike Rutherford in connection with the Rhoads burglary, in which detectives determined between $300 and $400 in cash was stolen, in addition to office supplies and other items.
The police chief said the blaze which destroyed the Walnut Street business could have been set to cover the crime, or as an act of defiance.
Bult burglary was the original intent, Headen said.
Yeltsin declares emergency rule
Native says changes won’t be betterBlaff and wire report
MOSCOW — President Boris Yeltsin on Saturday plunged Russia into its deepest crisis since the 1991 coup by declaring emergency rule and scheduling a referendum next month on whether the people trust him or Congress.
New Braunfels resident Anna Zubkov, who left the Soviet Union in the 1950s to live in America, said Yeltsin's power play won’t inprove conditions in the country.
“I know that it wont be better. The Communist are taking over,” Zubkov said. They are still there —millions, millions. Fve talked to them and I see what is going on.” Because of her frequent visits back to the former Soviet states, Zubkov said Saturday's events . didn’t come as a complete surprise.
“I know. I've been there twice since Yeltsin was there,” she said. “Gorbachev was stronger. He could do better. He was nicer. Yeltsin is too weak.”
The Russian drama continued to unfold Saturday.
Vice President Alexander Rut-skoi, leaders of Congress, the chief justice and chief prosecutor appeared on national television early Sunday morning, after Yeltsin spoke, and declared the president’s action an unconstitu* bona I effort to usurp power.
l awmakers scheduled a special session of the standing Supreme Soviet legislature on Sunday, were seeking to convene the larger Congress on Wednesday, and were likely to propose impeaching Yeltsin.
Yeltsin’s chief political foe, parliament speaker Ruslan Khasbu-latov, decided to cut short his trip across the former Soviet republics and return to Moscow Sunday,
“I’m not surprised. I know. I’ve been there twice since Yeltsin was there. Gorbachev was stronger. He could do better. He was nicer. Yeltsin is too weak."Anna Zubkov,
news reports said.
The united opposition to Yeltsin weakened the presidents stand. It wasn’t clear what further measures he could take to cany out the referendum on April 25 and enforce his decree on a “special order of government”
Rutskoi and the others urged security organs, political groups and the populace to avoid violence, “not to dramatise events and not to stage provocations.” Yeltsin described his “special order,” which did not appear to conform to the Soviet-era constitution, as a preliminary step toward approving a new charter and holding new elections to replace the Communist-dominated Congress that has blocked market reforms and trimmed presidential powers.
He accused the 1,033-member Congress of People's Deputies of planning to reimpose Communist Party rule.
In Washington, White House spokesman George Stephanopou-los said President Clinton continued to support Yeltsin, “as Russia's only democratically elected leader.”
“What matters most is that Russia is and must remain a democratic country moving toward a market economy,” Stephanopou-los said.
Summer youth effort discussedBy GARY P. CARROLL Hereld-Zeltung
LL Felix Roque of the New Braunfels Police Department announced tentative plans to begin a summer youth program in conjunction with area schools during a town meeting at Lone Star School Thursday night
So far, Roque said plans are in the works and he has received positive verbal response but thus far nothing is official.
“I still want to take it across the street to the city council and get their approval before we do anything,” Roque said.
Roque said that funds obtained through seizures by the area drug task forces, including the Alamo Area Narcotics Task Force would be spent to help fond programs such as all-night basketball leagues and dances. The proposed programs are a part of the continuing efforts of the New Braunfels Police to offer children alternatives to crime.
Police Chief Dick Headen said programs were needed and that for the programs to move from the planning stages to a reality it would take hard work by both Roque and the community.
Locations have been selected for the summer programs include Lone Star School, New Braunfels Middle School and Frazier Elementary School.
