Texas Today Judge tosses out charges In theft of art treasures DALLAS (AP) — A judge has tossed out criminal charges arising from the theft of priceless German art treasures during World War II, saying prosecutors secured their indictment one day too late. U.S. District Judge Paul Brown of Sherman, in an order made public Wednesday, dismissed all charges against Jack Manning Meador, 78, of Whitewright; his sister. Jane Meador Cook, 64, of Mesquite; and their attorney, John Torigian of Houston. The three were accused of conspiring to receive, possess, conceal and sell two stolen pieces of the German art collection known as the Quedlinburg treasures. Trial was set to begin in the case Nov. 4. But Brown, in a complicated ruling, said the five-year federal statute of limitations expired on Jan. 3. The indictment was handed up Jan. 4. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carol Johnson of Sherman, lead prosecutor in the case, said the government would review the decision but she declined further comment. Prououtof take cadets cum to grand Jury FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Some witnesses aren't cooperating in the case alleging two former military cadets killed a 16-year-old girl to exact revenge for a brief sexual encounter, a prosecutor says. As a result, grand jurors have been asked to help uncover evidence in the case, Assistant District Attorney Mike Parrish told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Meanwhile, a defense attorney said he plans to file a motion this week seeking a bond reduction and evidentiary hearing for his client in an effort to learn more about the state’s case. Parrish said he has gone to the grand jury “a couple of times” to try to gain cooperation from unhelpful witnesses, who can be subpoenaed to appear before the panel. Grand Jury indicts forntsr DA’s investigator HARLINGEN, Texas (AP) — For the second time in a year, a former employee of the Cameron County district attorney’s office has been indicted for taking bribes to fix criminal cases. A federal grand jury in Houston issued a seven-count indictment Wednesday against former district attorney'* flnceittgstor# WJ|te6i Weaver, 51, of Rancho Viejo. Also indicted was Raymond Castaneda, 37, an automotive shop owner in Brownsville. The indictment charges each man with one count of racketeering, one count of racketeering conspiracy and five counts of federal extortion. Padilla From Page 1 give a perception of that,” Rodgers said. ‘‘Whether someone else sees it as a conflict of interest depends on personal viewpoint.” However, the legal division of the Texas Association of School Boards said the fact that the boundaries of the two districts overlap raises some questions. TASB public information officer Barbara Williams said similar situations have created problems in the past, and it may not simply be a EAA committee extends review of critical management plan Obituary By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer SAN ANTONIO — The final word has not been written on the Edwards Aquifer Authority critical management plan. An ad-hoc committee set up to deal with the issue reviewed revisions to the critical management plan that were made by EAA Division Manager Michael Albach and his staff. The committee looked over the revisions and decided it needed time for more review making a decision. “We need to make notes and have the staff review it,” Bexar County representative , Sylvia Ruiz Mendelsohn said. “Mike can then come back at the next meeting and go over it.” Key revisions to the plan include a provision to require a critical period stage to remain in effect for at least IO days. An exception would occur if the level dropped so dramatically that it becomes necessary to go to the next stage based on the 10-day rolling average of springflow rates. In the rough draft plan, underground water usage would not recycle water used by a water supplier, Albach said. “This would be a disincentive for a water supplier,” Albach said. In the revised plan, athletic fields and golf courses are identified and more specific examples for discretionary use are defined. Under the rules, covers for swimming pools would be allowed to cover 25 percent of the pool instead of the original 50 percent figure because of concerns from the swimming pool industry about noticing a drowning victim when the pool is less covered, Albach said. Albach said his staff has yet to resolve nine issues pertaining to the critical management plan. The issues include whether conjunctive users who invest in alternative water sources get credit for conserving aquifer water and what the reduction stage trigger levels will be. A provision that deals with notifying the public when a reduction stage may be inedible needs to be added, Albach said. The EAA staff is still trying to decide what the maximum allowable usage multipliers will be for putting Ullrich From Page 1 Despite objections by defense attorney Wade Arledge, Waldrip was able to play a tape-recorded incident during which Ullrich had approached the Kiesling residence in 1995, using profane language toward Kiesling and saying he did not fear the victim. Ullrich said that on several occasions when he was checking on his children that Kiesling had threatened him with a gun. The defendant said he did not mean to stab Kiesling’s heart. But Ullrich said he whipped his lock-blade knife out in less than three seconds and stabbed into the torso of the victim, who appeared to be reaching for a gun. “I know it was his torso,” Ullrich said. “I wasn’t aiming into any particular area. “I panicked because I thought I was going to be shot.” Other witnesses previously testified that Kiesling had a gun, but it was in his truck at the time. Kiesling was not on duty as a constable during the time of the alleged murder. The trial is expected to last throughout the end of the week.

I think it’s more of one or the other, but the district’s counsel would have a better idea.” Bradberry said he will contact the board's attorney and ask him to look into the matter. But it could be a week to get an answer, the superintendent said. WHY THE INTERNET? WILL THE INTERNET HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

One provision that bothers Comal County representative Paula DiFonzo would require a primary user to file weekly reports with the EAA while the stage is in effect. She disagreed with a clause in which the estimated amount of underground water used by suppliers would be applied to the essential use during the reporting week and the specifics for that use. DiFonzo said this would be ineffective. “This would allow them (suppliers) more water than they typically pump during that period (stage),” DiFonzo said. Ifotvki L. Whit* Melvin L.
