In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Travis County state court, Tejas Testing Technology says it may not be able to stay in business. The suit alleges the state breached a 7-year contract under which the company was to test vehicles in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Bcau-mont-Port Arthur. The suit names as defendants the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission; its chairman, John Hall; board members Pam Reed and Peggy Gamer, executive director Dan Pearson and state Attorney General Dan Morales. TNRCC spokesman Patrick Crim-mins said members of the board scheduled an emergency meeting for today to be briefed on the suit. “We have reviewed the lawsuit,” Crimmins said. “Other than that, we don’t have any comment.” Stnati Pastis Judicial Campaign Reform Bill AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas Senate has passed a bill to restrict campaign contributions and expand reporting requirements for judicial candidates. The bill by Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, was approved 30-1 Tuesday and goes to the House for consideration. “Of all the civil justice reforms we will consider this session, I believe this is the most important, because it speaks to the very integrity of the judicial system,” Ellis said. “Under current law, you can walk into the judge’s chambers in the middle of a trial in which you are a litigant and write the judge a campaign check for $50,000 — or for a million dollars, hypothetically — because there are absolutely no limitations on how much you can give a candidate forjudge.” Sen. J.E. “Buster” Brown, R-Lake Jackson, cast the only dissenting vote. He said he had heard concerns from district judges in his area, including worries that incumbents could be put at a disadvantage under the measure. Officers Lucky To Be Alive After Squad Car Plummets Off Ramp During Chase DALLAS (AP) — Observers said it was unbelievable that two police officers were not more seriously injured when their vehicle shot off a ramp on Interstate 45 and landed upside down! 30 feet below. “Based on what we saw at the scene,' we expected serious injuries or maybe even a fatality,” Sgt. Jim Chandler, a police department spokesman, said Tuesday. “It’s just amazing that this is all we had.” Rookie officer Denise Akers, 24, and Senior Cpl. Richard F. Wilson, 32, a seven-year veteran and Akers’ field training officer, were taken by helicopter for medical treatment. Ms. Akers, who was pinned inside the mangled patrol car for about half an hour, suffered only cuts and scrapes. She was taken to Methodist Medical Center. Wilson suffered a head gash and broken facial bones and was taken to Baylor University Medical Center. The accident occurred shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Overton exit on 1-45, about four miles southeast of downtown Dallas and just south of where the interstate goes over the Tnn-ity River. Daughters of the Republic of Texas Could Get Closer Scrutiny SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Questions surrounding a $250,(MX) building purchase by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas helped prompt proposed legislation that would give the state closer scrutiny of the group that man- Feds release two drifters detained after manhunt OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Two drifters who had been the focus of a nationwide manhunt in connection with the bombing of the federal building turned out to be an investigative dead end. Gary Alan Land and Robert Jacks, whose recent movements roughly paralleled those of bombing suspect Timothy McVeigh, were held for 18 hours Tuesday at FBI offices in Springfield, Mo. They were apprehended by dozens of heavily aimed agents in a dawn raid on a cheap motel in Carthage, Mo. Shortly after midnight, the two men reclaimed Land’s white 198 k Thunderbird and drove away from the M&M Wrecker Service in Carthage, saying they were headed for Sacra mento, Calif. “We didn’t do it. We’re clean. We just got questioned. That’s it,” Jacks told reporters through his car window. “The FBI ain’t stupid. We haven’t done anything.” Land said he and his friend took a polygraph test and “passed it with flying colors.” The men said they did not know McVeigh, the only person charged in the bombing, or Terry and James Nichols, friends of McVeigh’s who are being held in the investigation but haven’t been charged. An FBI official in Oklahoma City said he had no knowledge about their release. FBI officials in Washington and Kansas City had no comment. alzheimer - (Dementia Support Qroup May 4,1995 6 - 7:30 pm 821 U.S. Hwy 81 West New Braunfels Speakers    Information Package 5\.

The DRT bought the Gallagher Building in downtown San Antonio in 1991 with money from donations and Alamo gift shop proceeds, documents show. The state requires that money to be spent exclusively on Alamo maintenance. The San Antonio Express-News also reported Tuesday the building never was listed on Internal Revenue Service forms that must be filed annually by non-profit groups and generally must list all assets of more than $25,000. The Gallagher purchase is being examined by state Sen. Gregory Luna, D-San Antonio, who has authored a bill giving state agencies greater oversight of the DRT’s management of the Alamo. “They did not have the authority” to buy the building, said Luna, who said the DRT’s action was “improper and irregular” though probably not illegal. Luna also criticized the group’s apparent failure to consult the state until after the purchase was completed. l«0r ■ TRAVELU 553 W.
