According to Texas law, precincts can be consolidated for any one election as long as no local issues are on the ballot, but the U.S. Depart ment of Justice must approve any changes in voting precincts Consolidation of the voter precincts saves the taxpayers money because each precinct requires an election judge and assistant to be paid, Bosenbury pointed out. The cost was estimated at $7 per vote for the county in the last state constitutional amendment election when no other local issues were on the ballot.

Page 14A 'Harst resignation is not linked to police probe' County tries new DWI program By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer County Attorney Bill Reimer has started a new sentencing option that includes more community service restitution with lower fines to try to decrease drunken driving. Statistics from the sheriff’s department, the Department of Public Safety and New Braunfels Police ail show a decrease in driving while intoxicated arrests from 1983 through 1985, but the county attorney wants to see the numbers brought even lower. “In 19831 tried 38 DWIs. So far this year, we have 13. But the number I’m proudest of is DWI-related fatalities in the past three years have decreased by 50 percent,” Reimer said. Reimer said, however, his analysis of the numbers recently showed a leveling off of the downward trend. IX. John Wommack with New Braunfels Police agrees, “The last few months we have seen more DWIs. Ifs begun to inch back up there.” Reimer decided to try a new sentencing option to get the DWIs back on a downward trend. During plea bargaining for the past month, some defendants are offered an alternative of a lesser fine and between 8-200 hours of community service restitution. “It seems to be working beautifully,” Reimer said. Jack Williamson with the probation department agreed that the program has been successful so far. “We are trying it as a three-month experimental program to see how it works,” Williamson said. His department supervises    all probationers, including those on community service restitution. “Most of the defendants receive between 8-24 hours of community service and $100 fine instead of the $300 fine,” Reimer said. "So far everyone has showed up, and even out-of-town probationers are opting to return here, one as far away as Houston, to complete their community service,” Williamson said. “Sometimes this is just what is needed to turn someone around: Proposed Sattler incorporation boundaries will be changed Honduras, Nicaragua clash at MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) — Suazo Cordova to prevent further repel and destroy any foreign result of pressure by the United After a day of border clashes, bloodshed.    aggression.”    States.

A Honduran military spokesman said in Tegucigalpa, that nation’s capital, that Honduran warplanes shot down a Nicaraguan helicopter Friday and strafed mortar batteries that had fired into Honduras hours earlier. Suazo Cordova called the Honduran Congress into urgent session to consider defense. Foreign Minister Eduardo Paz Barnica convened a meeting of the diplomatic corps seeking support for Honduras. Some of the affidavits mention Harst by name, and all are considered evidence in a lawsuit against the city filed in 1981 by Delgado’s brother, Robert. Harst’s resignation was effective Sept. 6, Boeck said. He gave '“personal family reasons” as the motive behind his resignation. This resignation has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Delgado and his so-called allegations. And any inclination toward that supposition is a serious distortion of fact," Boeck said “You know, I lost two officers last year. David Reinmger was here seven years, and Bill Whitworth five years This year, Jim Buntyn left, See RESIGNATION. Page MA By SARAH DUKE Staff writer Due to an oversight in planning, boundaries of the proposed Sattler Village will be changed before the Nov. 5 election to exclude government land. The incorporation election will be held as scheduled, according to David Thompson, an incorporation advocate and one of the organizers of the move. Thompson said Friday that the boundaries will be redrawn to leave out a small portion of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' land that had been included in the original boundaries. “There are no residents involved, it’s only empty land,” Thompson said. He said that the meets and bounds of the village must be changed but nothing else will change. He said he hopes to have the map in order sometime this week.
