Both Bullock and I .and Commissioner (larry Mauro said there was nothing wrong or unusual about the 10-year lease. They also said Bullock is paying more than anyone else offered However, the Chronicle reported Wednesday. Skeptics question how Bullock could have wound up with what turns out to be one of the state's few hunting leases in .South Texas without having received special consideration from Mauro’s office.” The newspaper also said that Bullock has fenced in the land, closing off a road through the property that once provided neighboring landowners easy access to their own property. I think that he has caused considerable trouble out there.” said ram her I^roy Hardeastle of Freer, who grazed cattle on the property for more than two decades before the state leased it to Bulloc k I think it's an inside deal, but I have no way to prove it.” Hardeastle said I'm sure it had to go through the land commissioner ” George Taggart, a Rockport businessman who owns land in the vicinity told the Chronicle he also believes Bullock was given special treatment by the (ieneral l-cnd Office Tin* newspaper said the lease actually is in the name of George Garland, a former associate deputy comptroller for tax and administration in Bullock's office, who has been working as a lobbyist since January, according to Bullock They split the lease cost. Bullock said •‘George and I have been hunting dowTi there for years. Normally, we hunt on (Clinton) Manges’ place,” the comptroller said. Manges, a Duval County rancher, long has been a figure in Texas politics and is a long-time acquaintance of Bullock Mauro said no special deal was made. ‘ He’s not getting any special treatment, period,” the land commissioner said. “But he did come in and offer the state the best deal available.” Bullock said he and Garland first heard the land was available only after the state decided not to let Hardeastle continue to lease the property because of alleged overgrazing. The Chronicle reported that land office officials “admitted they did not place advertisements about the land, but said that was not unusual.” Hardeastle, however, said the state “just up and took” the land away after he had spent years and “considerable money building tanks, building fences” and developing grassland. They said I was abusing it,” Hardeastle said. He put the blame on a severe drought that lasted for two or three years. Mauro said the lease was handled “at staff level. Apparently after Hardeastle had abused that land so terribly, we got a staff recommendation not to renew that lease. So the staff started checking around to find someone who would lease and spend a significant amount of time to bring back the land.” Taggart, who prepared a lease application that would have paid the state SI .50 per acre for hunting rights and $1.50 an acre for grazing rights. said the property “did need to be rested because it was in really bad shape.” Taggart said he never filed the application because he was told by a land office employee “that it was all over,” and that the the land was to go to Bullock. The Chronicle said records on file with the (general I .and Office indicated that Bullock and Garland made the highest and best bid on the land for hunting rights, $3 .50 an acre All grazing was ended on the property for at least two years, according to land office officials. “If anything, Garland and Bullock have had to pay a higher price and been under more scrutiny than our regular leasees,” Mauro said Hardeastle said he offered to pay $3 per acre for grazing rights A San Antonio man offered $4 per acre for grazing rights, the land office told the Chronicle Jo Faust Chairman of th* R"urd Bob Smith President John Dorband! sr I ice President led Cook Sr Vice President Real Estate Richard Gallagher I ice President Ka\ Smith I ice President Roijer Reminder I ice President Billboards opposed by some Plano residents lion Tillar 11. r Prs admi BH tv Ro hard Crab hie President Rita Kaufmann A SSI stunt Vice Pre aden!
