Texas Attorney General Dan Morales on Friday, April 28, con* gratulated and thanked the Texas House of Representatives for passing legislation that expands and toughens laws prohibiting the development of third-world style communities in Texas.
The legislation now must be approved by the Texas Senate.
Substandard developments, often called Colonias, have proliferated primarily along the Texas-Mexico border. They typically have no sanitary sewage or drinking water systems; no garbage pickup or safe disposal areas, and no paved roads.
Residents are exposed to various infectious diseases, such as cholera, hepatitis, and tuberculosis, as a result
of the open sewage pits, contaminated drinking water and unsafe disposal of garbage.
The contagious diseases are easily spread beyond the immediate Colonia community.
“With the passage of this legislation, we will have the tools necessary to stop the proliferation of Colonias and limit the residents", and all Texans", exposure to these deadly diseases that often originate in such environments," Morales said.
“It should be inconceivable that in this day and age, and in this great state, our citizens would have to live in third-world style conditions; and, that they, and all Texans, could be so readily exposed to such primitive diseases.
Clay, Loop earn seats on CISD boardBy CRAIG HAMMETT
Two new members will take seats on the Comal Independent School District board next week.
John Clay defeated Norman Gerlich 325-182 in the District 7 race, and Robert Loop defeated James Kellam 210-38 for the District 6 seat. A total of 755 votes were cast in the two districts combined.
This was the second time the CISD has elected members using singlemember districts. Next, two more seats Will be contested to round out the seven single-member seats.
“I’m real tickled we’re in the single-member districts,” said Clay, who
lost two years ago in an at-large election where eight people ran for two seats. “I know we represent the whole district. It (singlemember district) makes people feel like they have their own represents-' rive.”
District 7 included mainly the Garden Ridge area up to south of New Braunfels. This district had 507 votes cast compared to 248 in District 6, which mainly covers the Bulverde and Smithson Valley areas.
Tejeda blasts McNamara’s war comments
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Frank Tejeda, a Vietnam veteran, marked the 20th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War with praise for the grunts who served their country honorably, while blasting former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s remarks in a recently published book that the war was “wrong, terribly wrong.” Congressman Tejeda paid tribute to America’s veterans as he addressed a crowd of 200 persons at an All-Veterans Memorial Ceremony sponsored annually by the Vietnam Veterans of America on the last day of San Antonio’s Fiesta celebration. This year, the event fell on Sunday, Apnl 30, exactly 20 years after communist troops captured Saigon.
“As we look back 20 years to the fall of Saigon, we remember the harsh sounds of war, the valor of fellow troops, and the pained stare of fallen comrades,” said Tejeda. “Nothing said now by Robert McNamara reduces our debt to the courage of these young men and women. There is a time for speaking out, and McNamara’s was 30 years ago. He should have had the courage to tell President Johnson that sending further troops would be a mistake. This failure is his own; he should have stepped forward then.
“That McNamara did not have the courage or conviction to speak out against sending more and more troops to a battle that he secretly thought could not be won, in no way diminishes the courage and conviction of those who served in Vietnam,” added Tejeda.

“Those who fought, who answered the call, displayed courage. We must never forget the dedication of the young men and women who faithfully answered their country’s call to take up arms to defend what our political leaders told us were American interests abroad.
“While we must not dwell on the past, we must continue the healing process together now and in the future,” Tejeda said. “We must never forget. From this experience we can learn lessons for the future; if we put American soldiers in harm’s way, we must go with clear objectives, and we must go to win. As we look to the future, it is our responsibility to ensure that our soldiers have the proper manpower,
supplies and support to do their job.” Saigon, the capital of South Vietnam, fell on April 20,1975, following the withdrawal of the last American troops from the city. Congressman Tejeda and others in Congress continue to call on the Vietnam government to make a more complete effort to locate the remaining missing in action service personnel. The House National Security Committee will soon begin its consideration of die fiscal year 19% Department of Defense Authorization Bill, where the issue of military readiness will be hotly debated. Congressman Tejeda, who serves in the U.S. House of Representatives on the National Security Committee and the Veterans’ Affaire Committee, has long
advocated full support for troop training and morale.

Clay defeated Gerlich, who was the incumbent
“Norm’s a nice guy. I hate it for him,” said Clay who added he and Gerlich hold many of the same viewpoints.
“They (district residents) are going to get a good representative.”
Loop will also be serving his first term.
Like Clay, Loop served on the CISD’s Long-Range Planning Com
mittee and chaired that committee which suggested new schools be built , before the last bond package was, passed. Gay also served on the Canyon Intermediate School Architectural Committee.
Loop said he would continue to help the district with its long-range plan-.' ning and goals.
He said this was especially important in his area given the amount of growth there.
“I appreciate the support everybody; gave me,” he said.
“...Basically they want me to make sure the students have the classrooms they need, and I’ll continue to follow the progress of the new intermediate, school.”
