"I originally wanted it named Canyon I .ake.” Thompson added that some of the longtime Stillier residents wanted the town’s name to be Sattler. The name was changed last week when the application was refiled with the Comal County comnussioners. Thompson said the incorporation backers decided it would be easiest to change the name before the area is incorporated if it is in the Nov. 5 election. Thompson said he discussed the name change at a meeting of the Guadalupe Valley River Association. He said the majority of those pr esent wanted the name changed He also said he talked to several business people in Sattler and he said most were in favor of the name change The town of Sattler was named for William Martin Saltier, an early resident of the area Thompson turned in a petition with the names of 30 residents to the commissioners. He said legally they were required to have a petition of at least 20 residents to file for an incorporation election. The village’s boundaries were expanded last week when the petition was refiled. Maps filed with the commissioners indicate that the boundaries were moved to include more land west of the Guadalupe River between the second and third crossing on River Road. The Canyon l^ake Volunteer Fire Department’s station was also included in the proposed city limits when the boundaries were changed. The Village of Canyon laike is the name printed on ballots for the absentee voting which begins Oct. 16.

Mario Valadez, 19, charged for burglary of a habitation, had covered up the television monitoring his cell and tried to hang himself Sunday, jailer Rick Alvarez said. “As soon as he covered up the monitor, the officer here in the control room yelled for assistance,” Alvarez said. And when an officer got down there, Valadez had got something around his neck and was putting pressure on his neck, but he was still conscious.” Valadez was taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital and examined, the jailer said. No injuries were found. When Valadez returned to his cell, all materials that he could possibly use to hurt himself with were removed from his cell, Alvarez said. “But he kept threatening to kill himself.” Alvarez said. “I guess he was depressed or wanted attention. The next day we called in a psychiatrist, but tie didn’t improve He got pretty belligerent, telling us we couldn’t keep him from killing himself if he wanted to.” Wednesday the psychiatrist decided to have Valadez transported to the state hospital.

The Palestine liberation Organization has not confirmed it has custody of the pirates, who are accused of killing an American Jew during their two-day seize of the Achille I.auro in the Mediterranean Sea. The passengers were aboard the blue and white cruiser, which steamed into Port Said early this morning, nine hours after the hijackers surrendered Up to 511 people, including an estimated dozen Americans, were held hostage Mubarak told reporters in Cairo that Egypt allowed them to leave Wednesday night on the basis of a report by the captain of the Achille I*iuro that everybody aboard was unbanned. Officials later learned the pirates had killed a 69-year-old partially paralyzed American Jew. In a brief interview broadcast on NBC-TV today, Mubarak said: "... we started to make some negotiations when we understood that there was nobody killed on board the ship.” He added that rather than endangering the people aboard the cruiser, “ we accepted to take these people (the hijackers) and send them out.” “They left the country,” Mubarak said when asked about the status of the four hijackers. “I don’t know where they go.” Asked if the hijackers are in Tunisia, the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization, he replied: “In Tunisia? Maybe in Tunisia.” He said they had become the responsibility of the PLO.

Barbour has been a county agent in Comal County since January 1981. Among other duties, he has worked with the 4-H program in the county which includes about 400 children. If the extension service cannot get enough local funds to keep Barbour’s position, the other extension agents will be in charge of the 4-H program. Julie Johnson, home economics agent, Debbie Williford, program assistant for home economics, and Schumann are the other agents in the county. Schumann said that Barbour’s position will not receive state funds after August 1986. He added that he is hoping to get enough local funds to keep Barbour at work. The extension service is funded cooperatively by state and local funds, said Ronnie Jackson, fiscal director of the extension service. The county commissioners decide how much to pay the agents from county funds. County Judge Fred Clark was out of town and could not be reached for comment this morning. “There were substantial budget cuts (to the service) in the last legislative session,” Jackson said.
