Quarterly financial reports filed by the congressional Democrats last week show they donated $141,000 from their campaign funds to the state Democratic Party, The Dallas Morning News reported in Wednesday’s editions.
The contributions ranged from $5,000 from Reps. Nick Lampson of Beaumont and Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston to $50,000 from Rep. Martin Frost of Arlington, dean of the delegation.
“I think all of us have realized that if you’re going to be in the battle, you have to be there with everything you can. So sure, we talked with each other and said, ’We need to help these folks,’ “ said Rep. Gene Green of Houston, who has given $15,000 to the state party this summer and another $25,000 to the Majority Political Action Committee of Texas, or MPACX formed this year to re-elect Democrats to the Texas House.

Two New Braunfels youths arrested in September were taken into custody again Tuesday — for an alleged burglary.
Justin T. Cooke, 17, and Christopher J. McGreevy, 18, were arrested at Canyon High School and booked into Comal County Jail for the alleged burglary of a home.
Both were being held on $50,000 bail.
The pair were among five suspects charged in September with criminal mischief in connection with a series of break-ins at construction sites in New Braunfels, Garden Ridge, Schertz and

PRIVATELY INSURED PATIENTS' USE OF EMERGENCY ROOM RISES — People with insurance are increasingly using emergency rooms, even for non-urgent care, a study found — perplexing experts who thought the uninsured were the chief reason for ER overcrowding.
Emergency room visits jumped
The teens were free on bail when they allegedly burglarized another home Oct. 14.
Comal County Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Tommy Ward said the new arrests came after several people called Comal County Crime Stoppers in connection with an investigation into anoth-er crime.

POPE DEFERS SOME DUTIES TO CARDINALS — A new image of the papacy emerged this week as an increasingly frail Pope John Paul ll marked 25 years as head of the Roman Catholic Church: a pope who was on hand and alert for ceremonies, but who left it to a few trusted aides to deliver his homilies, celebrate his Masses and sing his prayers.
As John Paul looked on, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican’s orthodoxy watchdog and deans of the cardinals, celebrated a final Mass on Wednesday with the 30 new cardinals John Paul installed, formally capping the pope's weeklong anniversary celebrations.
