dismissed from jury panel
, AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. George W. Bush would have been asked to answer questions under oath about his personal history of drinking and driving — a subject he has avoided -7- if he had been selected as a juror.
But Bush was dismissed from jury' duty on Tuesday after the. defense attorney in a driving-while-ihtoxicated case moved to have the governor removed because of his power to pardon convicts.
“I thought that there might be a conflict, but I didn’t know it would be grounds for dismissal from the jury,” Bush said.
“It’s important for citizens from all walks of life to do their duty when called ”
Bush was one of 18 potential jurors called for a driving-while-intoxteated case in which six jurors were to be impaneled After his dismissal, Bush was asked if he had ever been arrested tor driving while intoxicated,
“I do not have a perfect record as a youth,” Bush responded When asked if that meant yes or no, he said, ’’When I was young, I did a lot of foolish things. But I will tell you this, I urge people not to drink and drive.”

Republican student group pries foul over cartoon
HOUSTON (AP) — A political cartoon in the University of Houston student newspaper that depicts members of the College Republicans group in front of a swastika has outraged some members of the group.
Leaders of the student group have threatened to file a lawsuit and say they will flood the Daily Cougar with calls and letters of protest.
In the cartoon, one College Republican holds a sign saying “Bum the Homeless” while another invites students to join the College Republicans so “you won’t have to worry about your future, we’ll do your thinking for you!”.
The cartoon was strong, but not out of line with provocative and satirical opinion it regularly prints, Daily Cougar editors told the Houston Chronicle.
Cougar editors said in a statement that the cartoon was inspired by recent activities of the College Republicans — bringing Republican speakers on campus and carrying anti-Clinton signs at a rally for President Clinton.
GOD prepare* FBC complaint against Stockman rival
WASHINGTON (AP) — Texas Democratic congressional candidate Nick Lampson’s campaign is improperly coordinating with the AFL-CIO in the race to oust Republican freshman Steve Stockman, national Republicans contend.
The National Republican Congressional Committee said Tuesday it would file a complaint against Lampson with the Federal Election Commission. At issue is use by Lampson’s campaign and the labor union of the same media placement firm to make television ad buys in the 9th District.
“The Lampson campaign and the AFL-CIO bosses are using the same negative message, in the same media markets, during the same time period — and all the ads are placed by the same media buyer,” said NRCC executive director Maria Cino. “This direct coordination amounts to an illegal contribution by the big labor bosses to Mr. Lampson and should be immediately investigated by the FEC.”
Lampson’s spokesman, Jonathan Brown, denied any collusion with the labor union.
Cramer: Archer channeling money to son-in-law
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — The GOP is using secret and untoward fund-raising techniques, backed by a powerful Texas congressman, to “buy” the District 5 congressional seat for Republican Wayne Parker, Democratic Rep. Bud Cramer charged.
Cramer released copies of two letters Tuesday that he says prove Rep. Bill Archer, R-Texas, is secretly funneling money to Parker, his son-in-law who nearly defeated Cramer two years ago.
Parker called the charges “ridiculous” and said he was not aware of and did not control how Archer or the state GOP raises money.
In one fund-raising letter, Florence investor Allan Rappuhn seeks contributions for Parker via Archer, with instructions for potential donors to send personal checks to Archer’s home in Virginia. The Alabama Republican Party will use the money on behalf of Parker, the letter states.
Cramer said a supporter gave his campaign a copy of the letter on Monday.
comment period on water rules
By ABE LEVY
SAN ANTONIO — The Edwards Aquifer Authority extended the deadline Tuesday for taking in public comment on its proposed rules for critical drought periods to Nov. 4, citing the need for more consensus building before deciding on revisions.
The 15-member board unanimously approved the recommendation of its drought management rules subcommittee, which indicated it needed more time to gather information and talk further on controversial changes.
“We certainly feel we need to extend the public comment period. We did not disagree on that,” said Sylvia Mendelson, EAA board member for Bexar County and chair of the subcommittee.
Mendelson said her subcommittee will update the full board at the next EAA meeting Monday in San Antonio.
The new deadline of Nov. 4 means a newly elected board likely will pick up the issue of making revisions to the draft rules.
Comal County representative Doug Miller said the benefit of the move for local residents depends on who is elected to the new board.
“It may work in our favor and it may not,” Miller said. “It all depends on who gets re-elected to the board. It could be a whole new dynamic.”
In other action, the board appointed a committee to look into the dry-year option program, a plan to pay farmers not to irrigate Edwards water that could then remain in the aquifer.
EAA representative from Comal County Paula DiFonzo, Bexar County representative Joe Bernal and Medina County representative Oliver Martin are the committee members.
Several city officials from San Antonio, including Mayor Bill Thornton, urged the board to implement the dry-year option program Tuesday night during citizens communication.

Local Democrats will continue to spread the message that Clinton has done well over the past four years.
“The President has done a good job. We are moving forward to the 21 st Century and we are continuing to grow. This is the best four years we have had in a long time.”
Henz said the message Dole is doll verify* rn 'ttnft with' ttrt
concerns of the voters.
“Bob Dole’s message is about the future of our nation and the values we have held as a nation,” Hensz said. “We are out a crossroads whether we go straight or go to the left and veer more to the more socialistic programs of big government. Ever since San Diego (convention) the Republicans have had the high road on the issues while the Democrats have had the high road on the emotions.”
Both chairmen said they are looking forward to tonight’s debate between Kemp and Gore.
