New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 9, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels High senior released from hospitalBy PATRICIA YZNAGA KING Wire editor New Braunfels High School senior Julie Gonts was released this morning after a month-long stay at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio. “The doctors are releasing Julie to the house,” her father, Arthur Clonts, 948 Twin Oaks, said this morning. The high school senior was injured Oct. 6 in a pre-bonfire accident on Highway 46, less than a mile from Loop 337. Julie, who was riding with a friend on the bed of a pickup truck, suffered multiple skull fractures when she was blown off the truck by a gust of wind. The students were transporting brush to Cypress Bend Park for the school bonfire. NBISD officials canceled the bonfire after the accident. That weekend, the New Braunfels High School homecoming celebrations and football game were dedicated to her. Students put banners up around the school, wishing her to get well. Julie was rushed to McKenna Memorial Hospital for emergency treatment. She was later transferred to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio. Julie was listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit for almost two weeks. Clonts said this morning his daughter was fully conscious and eating well. She is almost able to walk without aid, he said. Julie’s doctors have said that she will not need to go to a rehabilitation center, Clonts said. He said he did not know what type of therapy the doctors would schedule for Julie. The doctors have been pleased with Julie’s recovery. “Her recovery has really been quite remarkable,” Clonts said. Clonts said Julie might be back in school after the first of the year. “We’re working with school officials to get her graduated in May,” he said.

State elections officials said the vote in Harris County accounted for nearly 40 percent of all the votes cast in the state Tuesday. Texas voters gave the most lopsided amendment support to proposition No. 6, which would allow for the first time in Texas garnishment of wages to make overdue child support payments. The new amendment received the approval of 79.3 percent of those voting Tuesday. Attorney General Jim Mattox said ironically “it will probably have the greatest impact on people who are not voters — individuals who do not accept their responsibilities." He hailed it as an "extremely useful tool to enforce wayward parents into supporting their offspring.” The landslide victory of an amendment doubling the sue of the Board of Pardons and Paroles and taking the governor out of the paroles process See AMENDMENTS, Page HA Locals turn thumbs down on Propositions 8 and 10 AUSTIN (AP) — New constitutional amendments approved by Texas voters will give veterans a break in buying their first home and make it harder for wayward parents to keep from making child support payments. Ten of ll proposed amendments to the state’s constitution won approval in Tuesday's statewide election. The only one to fail was proposal No. 8, which would have authorized tax-exempt status to certain veterans' and fraternal organizations. With all of the votes counted, it received 52.8 percent "no” votes. Secretary of State John Fainter had closed the state's vote-tabulating machinery at midnight. saying he did not expect the uncounted votes to change any trends Tabulation was resumed this morning. Proposition No. IO, authoring cities to relocate or replace sewers on private property, collecting the money from the property owner over a period of years, received 52.4 percent approval. Voter turnout statewide, as predicted, was low. It was not expected to go above 13 percent when the final votes were counted today. But in Houston, cuter Proposed Amendment IO also was not favored. County ballots had 698 for to 941 against. The proposed amendment would have allowed a city or tow to expend public funds and levy assessments for the relocation or replacement of sanitation sewer laterals on private property. Proposition 8 was the only amendment which didn’t pass statewide. Proposition IO passed by a narrow margin. Voters approved Proposition I by a 1,26(3434 vote.

Court backs Schroeder on Savage decisionBy DEBBIE DaLOACH Staff writer Comal County District Attorney Bill Schroeder was right in refusing to further prosecute William Dale Savage last April, judging from an opinion handed down by the Corpus Christi Court of Appeals. “The James Rathwell case was •imwt identical to the Savage deal. Rathwell, driving while intoxicated, struck sn automobile carrying Devary Durrill and Bonnie Watkins,” Schroeder explained “Both were killed, and Rathwell was indicted for each death separately. “Rathwell was convicted in the Watkins case of involuntary manslaughter, and a jury gave him two years in the Texas Department of Corrections. But when the state went to try the Durrill death, Rathwell screamed double jeopardy,” Sec SCHROEDER, Page MA Reagan, Nakasone eye trade problems TOKYO (AP) - President Reagan arrived in Tokyo this afternoon, met with the 82-year-old emperor of Japan, Hirohito, and then sparred with Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone (Mi the contentious issue of U.S.-Japanese trade.
