Walker fired a 71 and 72 to lake first place at the Regional Golf Tournament last week, finishing eight shots ahead of the field and earning a trip to the state tournament next week. "Jimmy is peaking right now and playing about as well as he ever has," Canyon Golf Coach Tom Rosser said. "The timing was great, and I think he's ready to get to Austin and compete against the best high school golfers in Texas." Walker, who qualified for state as a freshman, will again showcase his talents at the 1995 State Tournament scheduled for May 8-9 at Jimmy Clay Golf Course in Austin. His trek to regionals followed a first-place finish at the District 28-4A Tournament where he shot a two-day 156. Competing against players from Austin Andersen, Waco Midway and New Braunfels, Walker was up against the region's best golfers. "The pressure was heavy at regionals," Rosser said. "Because our team totals were not among the leaders, he had to be a medalist to earn his way to state. He was under the gun and came through. Now he can relax at the state and shoot the lights out." So far this year, Walker has placed in the top IO in six high school tournaments, including the Smithson Valley High Tournament at Northcliff Golf Course (67, 1st), the Boerne Tournament at Bandera Golf Course (73, 1st), Berry Creek Golf Tournament (75,6th) and the San Marcos High School Tournament al Quail Creek Golf Course Herald Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Jimmy Walker, a sophomore at Canyon High School, qualified to compete at the UIL State Tournament (73, 2nd).

"We feel very uncomfortable about this whole situation, bul we’re just going to let it go as it is and we’ll address it at a later date,” Rockets vice president Bob Weinhauer said.

Maxwell did not attend practice with the team either Monday or Tuesday, and the club said he was receiving treatment for the hamstring There has been widespread speculation, however, that Maxwell’s injury was not severe enough to keep him away from practice.

(210)651-7100 By DEAN STEPHENS Associated Press Writer AUSTIN (AP) — A bill that would allow state tax dollars to be used for building or renovating professional sports arenas has won state Senate approval. The bill by Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, would allow cities to create sports authorities that would receive tax rebates to help pay for stadium projects. West said the bill was an investment in successful businesses. “I am convinced that the economic impact that these sports teams have is something that we need to make sure that we keep in the state of Texas,” West said. Citing 1993 statistics from the comptroller’s office, West said Texas’ professional sports franchises contributed about $860 million a year in revenue for the state. Approved on a voice vote Tuesday, the bill would let cities set up a sports authority that could then designate a “sports facility enterprise zone” no larger than a mile and a quarter in radius. City sales and use taxes collected in such a zone would have to be reinvested in building, expanding or rehabilitating a stadium, arena, coliseum or speedway.

West’s bill began as a local effort to keep the Dallas Mavericks basketball team from leaving the city. Other cities then decided they wanted to be included. Amendments were passed to include Fort Worth rodeo events and minor league baseball in Austin. The bill had the support of all the state’s professional sports teams, excluding the two major league baseball teams.

Under the bill, city leaders would have the option of calling a voter referendum on the designation of such a zone. In Houston, a referendum would be mandatory under an amendment by Sen. Don Henderson, R-Houston. An amendment by Sen. John Montfort!, D-Lubbock, would limit the number Cardinals pitcher Jose Sierra alma for the strike zone.
