TCI looks to earn customer forgiveness with new service HOUSTON (AP) — Tele-Communications Inc.’s Houston-area manager, Dan Hebert, hopes the launch of a hot new service will make cable customers forgive TCI’s past errors. The company created a public outrage by dropping such popular networks as Arts & Entertainment and The Nashville Network on the brink of a Jan. I rate increase and without notice. The decision cost the company some business, produced a class-action lawsuit and became a public relations nightmare. Lead neotiator with separatists: Looking back, we were really lucky FORT DAVIS (AP) — As he worked toward a peaceful compromise with Texas separatist Richard McLaren, Texas Rangers Capt. Barry Caver tried not to think about April 19,1993. That morning, Caver was stationed along a state highway outside Waco, watching the Branch Davidian compound. He and fellow Rangers were waiting to arrest David Koresh and his followers when they walked out of their home and ended their 51 -day standoff. They never came. At exactly noon, fire swept through the sprawling wooden structure. Hours later, Caver stood guard on the night shift beside the charred remains of 80 people. That grisly day has been on Caver’s mind since April 27, when he was called out of church in Midland and sent to this remote part of West Texas. Early that day, several McLaren followers had stormed the house of neighbors Joe and M A. Rowe to protest the arrests of two Republic of Texas members. Caver became the lead negotiator, and his first concern was getting the Row^s out safely. He got it done early the next morning by going against the conventional approach and swapping one of the arrested Republic members for the hostages. Over the next six days, Caver maintained a firm but patient stance. The Rangers were the lead agency at the scene, but they were by no means alone. Scores of state troopers joined practically every officer from every agency in every nearby county at the site. The National Guard created a virtual hospital. The Border Patrol brought in heat-seeking and night-vision equipment. The FBI also made its presence felt. So did the ghosts of Waco. “It did enter my mind, but just briefly,” Caver said this week, back amid the comforts of his Midland office. “I had to dispel those thoughts and try to combat the situation. I tried not to let it get in the way of my decisions.” “TEXAS” & “OKLAHOMA” SHOW TOUR June 18-21 Highlights: ‘TEXAS” the outdoor drama at Palo Duro Canyon “Oklahoma” Rogers & Hammerstein’^ musical, Will Rogers Museum, Cowboy Hall of Fame $1695 pp-dbl occ.
