Jailed automaker tries to raise bail money
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Automaker John Z. De Lorean, trying to make $5 million bond on charges of drug trafficking, wants to put up his sprawling California home as collateral and has turned over his defense to a high-powered criminal lawyer.
With De Lorean still in federal prison Thursday, attorney Joseph Ball’s first chore appeared to be arranging pledges of cash and property totaling $500,000 to bail out the flamboyant entrepreneur.
De Lorean was arrested Tuesday at an airport hotel, where authorities alleged he
was trying to swing a multimillion-dollar cocaine deal in a last-ditch effort to save his failing car company in Northern Ireland.
De Lorean, 57, was first represented by attorney Bernard Minsky, who told reporters Thursday he was bowing out of the case because he had never handled a high-publicity case and rarely did criminal litigation. Minsky said he had represented De Ixirean in civil matters for nine years.
Before leaving the case, Minsky said he hoped a combination of property and cash could be raised quickly to win De Ixirean’s release.
EXTENDED-WEAR CONTACT LENSES
Many contact lens wearers are opting for extended wear lenses Similar in many ways to soft contact lenses, this new er type of lens can be worn continuously for at least 24 hours and up to 30 days without being removed depending on the specific eye condition
Q Why can extended wear lenses be worn tor longer periods of time than conventional hard of soft contacts?
A They are made from a soft, plastic material with a high water content This allows oxgen to flow from the air through the lens, and to the eye Q Who can wear extended wear lenses?
A That s up to your eye doctor alter he has thoroughly ex ammed you It has been found that nearsighted or mod erately farsighted patients even with astigmatism may be able to wear these lenses for up to 14 days before they must be removed and cleaned Post cataract patients sometimes can wear extended wear lenses for up to 30 days before removal and disinfection are required

Des Moines. X-rays can only detect metal objects, however, not poisons, she added.
A Perry, Iowa, hospital decided against offering free X-rays because “it might be the impetus for some crazy to put something in the candy,” said a Dallas County Hospital spokesman.
On Wednesday, for example, a teenager in Austin, Texas, said she found a needle buried in a candy bar pur
chased at a convenience store. Police said it appeared to be an isolated incident.
Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre has asked the city manager to put extra police on patrol Halloween night for “our children’s safety.”
Trick-or-treating in Massachusetts has been banned in Methuen, Dudley and Holland — as well as Fitchburg and Palmer. Officials in Hull ordered a 6 p.m. curfew on trick-or-treaters and
Weymouth imposed a 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. limit.
Most city officials have been reluctant to forbid all trick-or-treating.
Atlanta Public Safety Commissioner George Napper urged parents to plan small parties for children in lieu of trick-or-treating and the Council of PT As urged the same in Omaha, Neb., where county health officials reported increased calls from concerned parents.

Ferguson said the normal waiting time of 30 minutes in the Dallas TEC office now takes up to four hours.
“Most of these people are on edge to start with. Our people try to be as accommodating as possible, but they’re overworked” and under pressure themselves) he said.
He said the situation in Dallas was aggravated by the Braniff shutdown, which threw 5,500 people out of work last May. The September rate for Dallas-Fort Worth stood at 6.4 percent.
Houston’s rate leaped to a post-World War II high of 8.2 percent, highest among the state’s three largest urban centers.
San Antonio ran a close second at 7.9 percent.
Austin had the lowest rate of unemployment in Texas, 4.1 percent, but jobs were scarce there too. Sixty people showed up to apply for a part-time, minimum wage job working in a warehouse after a beer distributorship ran a classified ad this week.
“There’s been an upward trend on Wall Street, but I sure don’t see it on Main Street,” said U.S. Sen. Uoyd Bentsen, D-Texas, who held a news conference in the Capitol Thursday.
He said he has visited Eagle Pass, Del Rio and Laredo recently, and “streets there just deserted on a Saturday afternoon when normally you see crowds of
people packing the streets. It’s an extremely serious problem. A major part of it can be blamed on the peso devaluation.”
Gov. Bill Clements, seeking a second four-year term in the Nov. 2 elections, insisted Texas’ economy remains “very healthy.”
“Economic indicators are excellent. Basically, inflation is under control. The prime interest rate is down, and this already is stimulating our economy as reflected specifically in new housing starts,” Clements said in a statement issued by his office here.
He predicted Texas would be “the first to recover from the national recession.”

Longley thinks that’s an underestimate.
“(The Edwards Aquifer) is a finite resource. Ifs not infinite. And it’s obvious to those who study it that we’re going to have to manage it somehow or get into a mining situation,” langley said.
“Recharge dams aren’t the final answer,” he added. The Edwards Underground Water District and other agencies have already done a lot to aid the natural flow of water back into the aquifer. But I wrigley thinks we’ll start seeing more resistance to recharge projects. When you get right down to it, water retarded and directed into the Edwards underground formation is water that somebody downstream doesn’t get.
“People in the Nueces River system are starting to think we’ve gotten all the water we should get, and they need all the rest," langley said. “Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s the feeling I get.
Most authorities now agree that surface water will have to provide for much of the future need. But as langley pointed out, surface projects arc expensive, and can’t usually be financed by local governments. He thinks that some sort of master conservancy district will have to be established, with the power to assess fees. And he thinks such a district would have to extend beyond the five counties presently included in the Edwards Underground Water District.
Surface projects also take a long time to build. “You usually figure 20 years between the time somebody thinks of a project until it’s completed and starts supplying water,” he said.
“Any management scheme that is developed for the region, conservation is going to have to be a significant part of it,” he concluded. “There are several ways to encourage conservation. Pricing is the most obvious one.
“By human nature, we tend to use a resource if it’s cheap. Ah, a few of us will be conservative, but I think the general public won’t conserve until they have to pay a higher price."
And pricing, like everything else, carries its own pitfalls. If farmers were required to pay a much higher rate for the large quantities of water they use, Ixrngley feels we’d be putting an unfair burden on what is “a marginal business at best.”
“Agriculture is very important to the Texas economy. We can’t afford to cripple our effort through over-regulation, or over-pricing,” he said.
A significant portion of Edwards discharge in Comal and Hays counties isn’t from wells at all. Waters flow right out of the rocks at the springs that feed the Comal and San Marcos rivers.
Natural geologic barriers divide the aquifers into three pools, the Comal-Hays region being the highest. If water in the aquifer drops below historic levels, San Antonio can go on pumping water long after the springs dry up, langley said. But there’s danger of contamination from the “bad water” zone, a more saline portion of the formation lying south of this area.
“When D-day comes, has anyone given any thought to stopping up the springs in San Marcos and New Braunfels?” asked a man in the audience.
“We’ve talked to some geologists about it. Most seem to think that if you did manage to plug up those holes, the water would just force some new ones,” langley said. He added that stopping the springs might not be a good idea in any case, since those two rivers provide the base flow for the Guadalupe, which supplies water to much of south Texas and finally flows into the coastal estuaries.
"If you eliminate those rivers, all we're getting la your returned sewage,” Longley said. “I'd rather have the springs diluting your sewage than not diluting it, and I’m sure the people in Seguin would feel the same way.”
