The three men left the vehicle
and attempted to flee the scene.
Losoya caught Dutchover, but
the other two ran east in the alley. Sgt. Danny Dominguez apprehended them in the 300
block of South Highland.
Taylor said alcohol was found
in the 1980 Chevrolet, but
charges were not filed because
one of the subjects is 21-yearsold. The juvenile claimed to be
the driver of the vehicle.
At 10:45 p.m. Losoya attempted to stop the vehicle,
which was driving 80 mph in a
40 mph speed zone, on east
U.S. 90 just inside the city limits.
The vehicle refused to stop

15 agents from three stations
due to Congress' approval of

Chief Patrol Agent Marfa Sector Richard Morrissey.
Agents from Midland, Amarillo and Lubbock will have the
option of moving to San Diego,

The Marfa station will not be
affected.
"The appropriation bill has

move."
Meetings have been held in
Midland, Odessa, Lubbock,

oppose the move.
• Morrissey was in Odessa
March 20 with other Border Patrol and Immigration and Naturalization Service representative
to inform local law enforcement
officials about the ramifications
of the proposed move and to
ask for help.
On Friday, Morrissey said the
15 agents were responsible for
37 percent of the 11,300 illegal
alien arrests made in the Marfa
Sector last year. All of the sector's arrests combined resulted
in the seizing of $100 million
worth of narcotics.
.The agents will be replaced by
INS special agents, who will focus more on immigration issues
and less on the roving patrols

Patrol has become known for.

100 more to operate the sector's

A good man
By ROBERT HALPERN
:
The Big Bend Sentinel
I ran into Presidio County Sheriff Abe Gonzalez in his yard
Sunday. He was in his work clothes with a paint roller in his
hand. We exchanged pleasantries_and eventually the election came
up. He waxed philosophic about his defeat and said he wasn't
bitter at all. He said he was proud of his tenure in elected office,
not only as sheriff but as justice of the peace. It's a tough job
being sheriff, he said, also being a JP. He said he. had no regrets.
He first was elected north county JP and then-was appointed .
sheriff in the Thompson matter. In a four-man race, Abe won the
Democratic primary when his closest challenger declined to
pursue a run-off election. He then defeated his Republican
opponent in the general election.
This may be a touchy subject, but Abe is the first Hispanic to be
Presidio County sheriff. It only took more than 100 years. He
opened the door for other qualified and deserving Hispanic law
officers, including the sheriff-elect. Abe took us through some
troubled times and restored honesty and integrity to a
once-tarnished post.
Sure his administration - and he's got nine months more to go has had its up and downs. Don't we all. He inherited the jail
problem and two of his former subordinates went astray. His
weakest characteristic politically (and this is a sad commentary of
our times) is his strongest attribute in every other way: his good
heart. He likes to give people a second chance.
Abe took me into his barbershop and showed me his athletic
trophies from his youth. There are top-placing trophies from when
he boxed and ran long distance in Ciudad Juarez. There are
basketball trophies from his award-winning Blackwell School
team.
I finally saw more of Abe than his time in office. He's
courageous and compassionate. A survivor. I left feeling
melancholy for his defeat but encouraged by his out-look and his
peace of mind. It was one of life's lessons God sends your way at
times. We said good-bye, Abe's hand-shake strong as a rock.
Upholding the
public trust
By JAKE BRISBIN JR.
..- Presidio County Judge
« Last week's editorial about public employees and officials who
have been charged with or found guilty of crimes was a well
written, reasoned approach to a sensitive issue. The editor was
right in asserting that public employees and elected officials are
and should be held to a higher standard. We know this when we
take the oath, put on the badge or accept a check that is derived
from tax funds.
That being said, there is another point to consider. It is
embarrassing and sad that we have had more than our share of
such incidents.
„—-^But consider this when weighing the overaiTseverity of the
problem: The very people who brought attention and public
scrutiny to each incident were themselves public servants and
office holders. Think about it.
Our system and the people who operate it locally-afe^strong "~~~
enough to overcome the aberrations. The fact that most of the
men and women who hold office and serve the public trust are
worthy of it is how we are aware of those who are not."
There are places where such incidents would have been swept
under the rug or covered up. It has been exposed in the past, and
human nature being what it is, it will be exposed in the future.
We will deal with them as we always have on my watch, openly
and swiftly. Once exposed, the job of prosecuting them then
becomes the district attorney's.
I speak for myself when I say that I have zero tolerance for
corruption. As the chief elected official for Presidio County, I can
honestly say I believe most of our public employees and officials
throughout the individual communities and the county are honest,
hard-working individuals who are worthy of the trust and respect
of the public and the news media. -

Letters to the editor
Editor:
You can blame me. I'm the culprit if you were hoping that a
new convenience store and truck stop would be built on the
Foxworth-Galbraith Lumber Co. property facing U.S. 90 and the
properties north of there facing El Paso Street.
Apparently I am the only owner who was not agreeable to
selling.
My brother and I are joint owners of two buildings that front on
El Paso Street. When we were first approached about selling our
two buildings, I based my preliminary decision purely on business
reasons and initially agreed to sell, knowing that the buildings
would be destroyed. As time passed I became more and more
uncomfortable with my decision. Even though I could certainly
get a greater return-on those assets if they were invested
differently, I came to feel that the greater good of Marfa would
not be served by razing buildings that were occupied by local
merchants.
These buildings were erected shortly after the turn of the century
and, in my opinion, add to the charm of our community.
In an effort to base my decision on something other than
sentiment, I consulted three economists from Trinity University
and Texas A&M University. They told me they knewof no - - - ^
studies that would apply directly to this situation. They said the
.net economic impact depended on too many variables in the
[region as well as in Mexico. However, they did go on to say that
part of the appeal of our area is the history and charm that
distinguishes us from other small towns on major highways. One
economist-said that in his opinion, it is too great a sacrifice to tear
down historic buildings housing viable local businesses when
other sites may be available. To do so would deprive the
community of an asset.
After days of struggle, I called the real estate broker and told her
I was having second thoughts and needed a little more time. My
brother signed the contracts and sent them on to me for my
signature, but I just couldn't execute the contracts and consign
those two buildings ta the bulldozers.
I have lots of regrets. I regret that all the work the real estate
brokers did on this deal is for naught. I regret the trouble my
decision causes our neighbors on El Paso Street. I regret any hard
feelings within the community. I apologize for all the discomfort
and inconvenience caused by my decision.
We are all seeing renewed interest in the Big Bend area and it is
my hope that we can have new businesses come into town to
enhance the community and strengthen the economy. I believe we
can retain our charming historic buildings, some of which have
been lovingly restored, and at the same time welcome newcomers.
It doesn't have to be either/or. I believe we can have both! Let's
work together toward that goal.
Sincerely yours,
Mary Anne Beanland Moses

WOOL GATHERING
Round peg in
a square hole
The voice came over the telephone with a diabolical glee, no
more than five minutes after The Big Bend Sentinel came out on a
Thursday.
"How," he asked, "can you encircle a square?"
"What?"
"Encircle a square. That's what you said in Wool Gathering.
That iron fence around the courthouse square 'encircled' the
yard."
Oy vay and bah!
To the trusty dictionary.
Aha. To use a bit qfjegalese hair-splitting.
To encircle also can meanlo surround, such as surrounding a
field with a fence. So there.
But, in a manner of speaking, it really didn't sound right. So the
dang fence went on all four sides of the courthouse yard and you
had to open a gate to'get in.
For those who might remember there were gaps instead of gates,
you are a lot older than I thought, and please, don't call me. call
the editor.
(Thanks, WG.-.the editor.)

Hospice luncheon and
style show a success
By BETTY COWELL
ALPINE - The Hospice of the
Big Bend Golden Spring Luncheon and Style Show for 1996 was
a most enjoyable success.
Many hard-working people,
kindly donations and supporters
of the hospice program contributed to the success. It would be
hard to thank each and every one
for all their contributions, but we
do say thank you.
The merchants and models did
an outstanding job showing the
fashions available in Alpine.
Men's wear was presented as
well as women's, young women
and novelty fashions. The merchants who participated were
Anthony's, Arts & Crafts Mall

Impulse, Fashion Express,
Johnson Feed & Western Wear,
Neeldeworks Etc., and Portable

ARX" catering served a delicious meal at the Ciyic Center
rented by Tommie McDaniel and
decorated with Cactus Cotillion
decorations. Area women were
entertained by Lana Grubb Hickock as the narrator, Audrey
Painter at the piano, a host of
merohants and models and Bill
Peters and John Tabor serving as
escorts.
The door prizes contributed by
area merchants and artisans were
an added bonus to a fun-filled

Cattle prices biggest issue
facing producers this year
AUSTIN - "I hope we can survive and continue to make a liv, ing in this industry we love. It
will be tough," President
.Chaunce O. Thompson Jr. told
members of Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association in his annual address to the
membership Tuesday.
More than 2,500 cattle producers and members of allied industries are gathered in Austin for
the 119th annual convention of
the livestock trade association
based in Fort Worth.
"The largest issue of the year
has been cattle prices," said
Thompson.
He reviewed the factors contributing to the continuing depressed cattle market: An
increase in the size of the cow
herd; increased beef production;
corn prices; Mexican cattle;-and
drought.
Thompson said another continuing problem'is packer concentration. "The three major
packers now handle 82 percent of
the fed slaughter, and now we
find them ...moving into non-fed
slaughter," he reported.
Thompson said TSCRA has
supplied considerable information to the Justice Department on
the situation, but said, "the administration's position that biggerjs better is disheartening.
The quality and consistency of
beef is another challenge facing
cattle producers. "How do we
bring about beef cuts of approximately the same size and ensure
consumers are getting tenderness
and flavor that will bring them
back to the beef case?" he queried.
Thompson said he doubts cattle
producers will be paid-more to
raise that kind of cattle. "Instead
we'll be docked for producing
the wrong kind!" he said. "The
only way we're going to get
there, I think, is have enough
pride in individual cow herds to
bring them around to the kind
that will produce the desired
product. We've got a lot to
learn," he concluded.
These are prime examples of
"life happening while you are
busy making other plans,"
Thompson said. He quoted the
line from the movie "Mr. Holland's Opus" as he detailed a
barrage of issues which bombarded association leaders during the past year.
These included testimony opposing the reintroduction of the
Mexican Wolf and a proposed
rule from the Texas Board of
Veterinary Medical Examiners
whereby only licensed veterinarians could do pregnancy cow
checks.
Extensive efforts working on
estate tax relief and other estate
tax issues with U.S.Rep. Bill
Archer, R-Texas, have been
frustrated as the proposal became
entangled in the balanced budget
debate.
"Immigration has been a hot
issue this year," Thompson continued, outlining House and Senate bills which originally
contained language allowing
confiscation of property if an illegal alien was found employed.
Some even think it could mean
confiscation if an illegal alien
was just on the property,"
Thornpson added.
He said many association members helped convince Rep. Lamar Smith to remove the
objectionable language from the
House bill, but they have had no
such luck with Sen. Allen Simpson of Wyoming, sponsor of the
Senate bill.
"Our biggest win in the last
Texas Legislature was our new
state property rights law," said
Thompson. He commended Rep.
Susan Combs, a TSCRA director, for leading the charge in the
legislature and Sen. Teel Bivens
and-TSCRA attorney Ed Small
for their efforts in the victory.
But more challenges are ongoing, Thompson said in describing
the Edwards Aquifer Controversy. In August a suit was filed
by the Medina County Underground Water District alleging
that the latest state law passed by
the legislature which set up an
elected state board to operate the
aquifer is unconstitutional.
• "TSCRA intervened on behalf
of our members living over the
aquifer," Thompson said. The
association's attorney Ed Small,
led the effort to strike down the
law and the district court found
in the Underground Water District's and TSCRA's behalf. The
case was appealed to the Supreme Court and was argued last
week.'
"We are now awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court.
This decision may have a dramatic effect on the right of landowners, with regard to their
underground water," Thompson
emphasized.
TSCRA also continues to be
concerned about the Texas
Prison Systems use of Vita Pro,
a Canadian soybean substitute
for beef and chicken. On Nov. 7,
Thompson wrote a letter to Gov.
George W. Bush questioning the
prisons system's use of this product and the sale of cattle raised
by the prisons on Texas markets.
"I explained how cheap beef is
and questioned whether Vita Pro
is really cheaper," Thompson
said.
"The governor's investigation
has uncovered a stinky mess that
has become an embarrassment to

crease in the amount of beef

prices, the large number of cattle imported from Mexico and
the drought in Texas and Oklahoma have all contributed to the
low cattle prices.
Cattle-Fax market analyst
Topper Thorpe said herd reduction will begin this year and
continue for the next two years.
Cattle producers were commended for their environmental
stewardship in the Natural Resources and Environment Committee meeting. Barry McBee,
chairman of the Texas Natural
Resource Conservation Commission, stated his intent for the
commission to promote flexibility and common sense in
achieving environmental goals.
He said he will specifically ex-
tend this approach to agriculture hd its related industries,
recognizing that farmers and
ranchers were stewards of the
land long before the environmental movement came into
fashion.
Dr. Margaret Maxey of The
University of Texas also recognized agricultures role in protecting the environment.
Scientific progress and sound
planning will also ensure "the
health of animals in the future,
said Dr. Kelly Preston of the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service. He said cooperative industry, state and
federal planning will ensure that
the United States avoids an animal health epidemic in the future.

Children's
immunization
rate still low,
study finds
Only 55 percent of Texas children under age two have had all
recommended immunizations,
according to a study published in
the March Issue of Texas Medicine.
The article concluded that special initiatives are needed to improve immunization rates among
certain, ethnic and low-income
populations. Texas Medicine is
the official news magazine of
Texas Medical Association.
The article was based on a 1994
immunization survey that included 4,552 in-person interviews with parents or legal
guardians of children aged three
to 24 months.
, Although the study showed progress jsheing madejinjncreasing'immunaation rates" thVauthors"*
said much work remains to be
done. The survey showed that
"Hispanic children, children enrolled in Women, Int'anLs, and
Children programs and children
living in border communities had
the highest levels of immunizations in the state. Special outreach programs along the
Texas-Mexico border may have
played a role in those high immunization rates.
Immunization rates among African-American children, and
children on Medicaid and Aid
top Families with Dependent
Children were below statewide
averages. Also, children with no
health insurance and those with
private insurance had equivalent
immunization levels.
Children should have at least
three immunization visits in the.

the second year to receive the
recommended doses of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (DTP),

growing genres, generating large
recording sales and concert revenue.

ute to Selena was shown on two
large video monitors at the
Alamodome.
Emilio won male vocalist and
entertainer of the year, his Tejano country song, 'It's Not The
End Of The World,' and progressive conjunto album, 'Sound
Life,' among other awards.
Astudillo, who sang backup for
Selena y Los Dinos until he embarked on a solo career in 1994,
won most promising band honors.
Astudillo's remembrance of Selena, '.Come Te Extrano,' which
.he wrote with the singer's
brother, A.B. Quintanilla III. is
still high on the charts.
Singer and. actress Maria Conchita Alonso was host of the
awards show. Texas Gov.
