New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 7, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, May 7, 2005 Tony Blair unveils changed cabinet LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Tony Blair unveiled his cabinet on Friday, changing leadership in defense, health and the House of Commons, and putting his government back in business after a third term victory that was dampened by a reduced majority. Blair, who decided to skip a trip to Moscow next week to mark the 60th anniversary of the Allied victory over the Nazis, focused on changes in his new government for most of Friday. Party leaders held meetings for much of the day. Geoff Hoon was named leader of the House of Commons, John Reid became Defense Secretary and Patricia Hewitt left her post as Ttade Secretary for Health Secretary. Key figures such as Treasury chief Gordon Brown—widely seen as Blair's likely successor — kept his post as Chancellor of the Exchequer while Jack Straw remained Foreign Secretary. Earlier Friday, Blair acknowledged the Iraq war was "a deeply divisive issue" that hurt his Labour Party, but he said Britons were ready to “move on” and focus on the future.

Dinner will be served from 4 to 8 p.m. Cost is $5.50 for adults and $3.50 for children. The event includes one of the area’s most-anticipated annual auctions, and Chief Don Zipp said it’s well worth attending this year. It begins at 6 p.m. “We’re going to have all kinds of things,” Zipp said. “There will be a few barbecue pits, tools, antiques and a signed Spurs basketball among many other items.” Saturday’s festival is second only to the Bracken VFD’s annual kartoffel puffers booth at Wurst-fest in terms of fund-raising, Zipp said. “ This mid-year fest raises much-needed extra funds to buy equipment,’’ he said. This year’s purchases will include a thermal imaging camera and new defibrillator equipment for Bracken’s rescue truck. TEXAS HOUSTON MAN KILLS CO-WORKER, SELF IN OFFICE BUILDING - Police investigating a murder-suicide at an oil-equipment company said Friday they still don’t know why a patent lawyer decided to kill a co-worker and then himself. Police identified the gunman Friday as Jackie Lee Duke, 52, of Houston. He was working for Cameron, a division of Cooper Cameron, on contract as a patent lawyer. He had once been a fulltime employee of the company that makes equipment for oil exploration. The victim was identified as Michael Paul Hartmann, 54, of Ingleside, near Corpus Christi. Hartmann, also a patent lawyer, was a full-time employee of Cameron, police said. Cooper Cameron spokesman Scott Amann said he couldn’t immediately confirm the men’s employment histories or whether Duke and Hartmann were working together. Duke walked into I lartmann’s office at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday armed with two handguns and shot Hartmann in the head and back before shooting himself in the head, police said. CORRECTION Junior Brown will take the stage at Gmene Hall at 9:30 p.m. today. Jarrod Birmingham will open for Brown beginning at 8 p.m. On May 14, Delbert McClinton will play at 9 p.m. The times and dates for these performers were incorrectly listed in Friday’s edition.
