puts principal on loavo
TYLER, Texas (AP) — A principal has been placed on administrative leave after two convictions for committing lewd sexual acts in an adult movie theater came to light, according to a copyright story in the Tyler Morning Telegraph today.
Stewart Middle School Principal James Larry Nolen, a highly honored East Texas educator, indicated on school employment contracts that he never committed an offense involving moral turpitude.
However, court records show that Nolen faces a revocation of probation charge related to the 1995 convictions in Dallas.
“Presenting false information is grounds for termination and grounds for disciplinary action or whatever,” said Interim Superintendent George E. McDowell.
But, he added, each case is handled on its own merit.
Nolen, 43, of Chandler
emphatically denied any criminal involvement when contacted by the newspaper, saying he was the victim of mistaken identity.
of bordar costs
DALLAS (AP) — The chairman of Texas’ Public Safety Commission is asking for a detailed summary of the cost for posting state troopers along an 80-mile stretch of the Mexican border near Eagle Pass to fight drug traffickers.
Chairman James B. Francis Jr. of Dallas said Uncle Sam may ultimately get the bill.
“Essentially ... (we’re) doing the job the federal Border Patrol is supposed to do and can’t do,” Francis said Thursday at the commission’s meeting in Austin. “I want our people to calculate what this is costing, and I want to ask the federal government to repay the state.”
The commission will consider at its January meeting whether to petition for federal reimbursement to the Texas Department of Public Safety, he said.
The DPS operation takes troopers away from regular sector duties and costs the agency hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime, motel stays, meals and vehicle maintenance and operation, law enforcement officials said.

ethics commission in his role as assistant to the city manager, said an ethics commission would allow the community to be involved in ethics decisions.
“The ultimate goal is to avoid the appearance of influence,” Ferguson said. “I really think this proposal is looked at as a starting point that can be fine tuned. It allows room for interpretation”
Other sections of the 11-page proposal outline limits for city officials on accepting additional employment, municipal campaign participation, acceptance of gifts and other potential conflicts of interest.
This is the second recent attempt at producing an ethics policy.
About three years ago, former councilman Dan Bremer initiated a measure to compose an ethics ordinance.
After about eight months of study, a 14-member board produced a proposal that died on the table.
Citizens and council members agreed that the proposal was too restrictive and detailed.
Ethics committee members and city officials believe this proposal is a much more workable document that sets out a broader set of policies.
“I’m really pleased with it. They really kept it in the middle,” said City Attorney Jacqueline Cullom who assisted the committee in composing the proposed policy. “They don’t want to discourage good people from applying for (city jobs).”
Funeral arrangements are pending at Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home in New Braunfels for Gerald McHenry Phillips, who died at New Braunfels Nov. 21,1996, at the age of 74 years.

The ruling did indicate that New Braunfels Utilities is an appropriate class to represent pumpers in Hays and Comal counties.
NBU lawyers argued in favor of such a classification but could not be reached for comment.
San Antonio Water System lawyer Russell Johnson said the ruling provides some temporary relief for San Antonio, which pumps the most of all the defendents in the case.
“I’m very pleased that the court recognizes that it was inappropriate to create a class,” Johnson said. “The end result is correct but I’m not in agreement with (Bunton’s) conclusions of the class certification analysis.”
Johnson said the Sierra Club now faces wha! he said would be an

impossible task of suing each individual pumper.
Sierra Club officials and lawyers could not be reached for comment Friday morning.
The Sierra Club sued all pumpers of the aquifer in June in an effort to limit pumping under the Endangered Species Act.
The environmental group sent out numerous notices in regional newspapers of its intentions to sue over the past few months.
The Sierra Club contended that one class of defendants could be represent all Edwards well owners because they all shared the same impact of drawing water from the aquifer.

Trustees suggested a couple of things they may be able to do to assist the parents, including contacting state Representative Edmund Kuempel and asking Kopp to attend the next meeting to ask him what, if anything, can be done at the intersection.
