DRUG TRIAL POSTPONED —
Judge Charles Ramsay postponed the trial of a 45-year-old New Braunfels man who faces up to two life terms in prison on drug and weapon charges.
District Attorney Dib Waldrip said Terry M. Ulloa’s trial, which was to begin today, would be reset because his attorney, John Fox of San Antonio, called in ill Monday.
Fox last week sought a postponement of the trail that Ramsay refused.
The trial, based on Ulloa’s arrest in July 2000, has been delayed numerous times by pretrial motions and by the defendant’s alleged bail-jumping.
Ulloa is charged with eight drug-related allegations and theft of a firearm.
The drug-free zone allegation is that the offenses occurred within 1,000 feet of a Head Start program located in the 2900 block of Interstate 35 South.
If convicted, Ulloa faces at least two consecutive sentences of 15 to 99 years in prison.

LEGISLATORS PONDER MOVING PRIMARY ELECTION —
Texas’ Republican leaders seem to have no qualms about taking y Texas out of the “Super Tuesday” primary next year in order to incorporate still-developing
What could have been a slippery situation closed southbound Interstate 35 in New Braunfels for more than eight hours Sunday.
New Braunfels Police Sgt. Mike Rutherford said a semi-rig hauling a load of liquid dish detergent struck temporary construction barriers about 10:15 a.m. Sunday on southbound Interstate 35 just north of Walnut Avenue.
The driver was treated for , minor injuries at McKenna Memorial Hospital and was
changes in congressional lines onto the ballot.
As Republican House and Senate negotiators continue to toil over a district map that would put more GOP candidates in the Texas congressional delegation, time is running out for Republicans who want to ensure their map is reflected on the next election ballot.
At the Texas Capitol Monday, U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay met with House SpeakerTom Craddick and representatives from Gov. Rick Perry’s office in hopes of urging a compromise.
Secretary of State Geoff Connor has said if a redistricting map wasn’t in place by Monday
released, Rutherford said.
Southbound 1-35 was closed until 6:30 p.m. while crews cleaned up spilled diesel fuel and removed the semi-rig.
None of the soap was spilled, Rutherford said.
Traffic was diverted off the interstate at the New Braunfels Marketplace. Southbound vehicles got back on the highway at Rueckle Road. Additional police officers and sheriffs deputies were called to assist directing traffic through the detour.
the Texas primary would have to be postponed, though the Legislature could vote to change several key deadlines.

HOUSE IRAQ PACKAGE DROPS CONTROVERSIAL ITEMS -
House Republicans offered an $86.7 billion package for Iraq and Afghanistan on Monday, largely following President Bush’s proposal but abandoning his ' plans to spend money in Iraq for ZIP and area codes, new garbage trucks and restoring marshlands. T he bill represents the House
GOP’s approach to Bush’s $87 billion measure.
In the biggest change, the House measure pares the $20.3 billion Bush wants for rebuilding Iraq to $18.6 billion. But it adheres to the president’s plan to make the expenditures a grant financed by the U.S. TVeasury, despite demands to structure the spending as loans Iraq eventually would have to repay.
From Bush’s request, the House version drops $50 million for traffic police; $300 million for prisons; and $153 million that included money to buy garbage trucks for $50,000 apiece.
Also dropped from Bush’s request is $100 million for restoring Iraq’s marshlands; $13 million for ZIP and area codes; $100 million to build seven public housing communities; and $150 million to begin building a new children’s hospital in Basra.
