Lister, RN, said.
Directors voted unanimously
to keep the 1993 tax rate at the
current rate of .1610 cents per
$100 valuation.
That still will generate an additional $8,000 in tax revenues.
While the district's taxable
valuation dropped by $195,000
in Presidio County to $125.1
million from $125.3 million, it
was offset by a property valuation increase in Brewster County.
The hospital district's taxable
value in Brewster County in*
creased by $5 million to $219:6
million from $214.6 million.
One person in their 60s
remained hospitalized as of
noon Wednesday, she said,
who in addition to being treated
for exposure to the toxic fumes
also was experiencing anxiety
problems.
Three persons were admitted,
treated and later released, three
persons were treated and
released from the emergency
room and three persons didn't
need treatment, she said.
No children arrjved at the
hospital, and those who arrived
at the hospital were in their 20s
and 30s, Lister said.
The patients were administered oxygen, which
cleared up the symptoms, she
added.
Officials identified the toxic
vapors leaking from the tank
car as a mixture of copper
chloride and hydrochloric acid.
The leak was discovered about
4 a.m. Wednesday by a Border
Patrol agent checking the train
for illegal immigrants..
The train was parked on a
siding behind Valley Distributors between Sunny Glen
road and U.S. 90/67.
At about 5:45 a.m., officials
decided to evacuate a 1/4-mile
area of town around the tank
car, Alpine police Sgt. Harold
Frahm said.
As Frahm worked a law enforcement command post near
the tank car, he said he got a
whiff of the fames.

together without any fisticuffs.

cooperation with the El Paso

Another social is planned in
the coming months in Fort

car valve, he said.
The tank car was hooked up to
a train enroute to San Antonio
for further inspection, Frahm
said.
The all-clear was given about
9 a.m., and officials reopened
Sunny Glen road.
Officials never closed U.S.
90/67 but advised motorists to
roll up their windows and shut
off their air conditioners as they
passed through the area.
Officials evacuated people
from homes in east Sunny
Glen, Antelope Lodge and
Lines-Bow Trailer Park, he
said.
People living in nearby
Hacienda Heights apartments
and homes along Peach Tree
Circle weren't required to
evacuate, Frahm said, but some
of those residents left the area
on their own, Alpine radio stations KVLF-i\M andKALPFM reported.
T o x i c vapors also were
reported by residents in south
Alpine, radio station broadcasts
indicated.
Alpine city Secretary Annabel
Holguin said the civic center
was a beehive of activity as
people arrived there.
She said she'made pots and
pots of coffee and brought burritos and doughnuts for the
evacuees.
Frahm said the evacuation
"went real smooth" thanks to
the help of Border Patrol agents
and the Brewster County
Sheriffs Office.
Wednesday's incident was the
second such incident in two
years.
In August 1991, Border Patrol
agents noticed vapors coming
from a railroad tank car about
26 miles west of Marfa.
It later was determined the
vapors were hydrochloric acid.
Officers shut down U.S. 90
for a short time until a leaking
valve was repaired.
While vapors still were in the
air, an eastbound Amtrak passenger train passed through the
cloud.
The train stopped in Alpine
where the Alpine Volunteer
Fire Department washed down
the train with a solution of
baking soda and water.
No injuries occurred in that
incident.

Dear Lionel (Salgado):
You did an outstanding job emceeing the Blackwell School
reunion in Marfa. It was wonderful to see so many gamer to
share their school day memories.
It is amazing how strong Blackwell School must have been to
bring together such a large crowd after being closedfor29 years.
It is not only a credit to the school, but to the strong roots and the
pride of Marfa. I enjoyed being a part of the celebration and the
program.
I appreciate having this opportunity to represent Marfa in the
United States Congress and hope you will let me know if I can be
of service.
Sincerely,
Henry BoniUa

We owe a debt to Benjamin Franklin for much in our nation. He
had been head of the postal system in the colonies, but was fired
by the British because he was one of the rebellious ones in the
colonies. Under the Articles of Confederation he headed the
group appointed to organize the postal service. Although he was
in the Constitutional Convention, by the time the Constitution was
adopted he was a sick old man. He died within two years after the
Constitution was ratified.
But our postal system is a legacy from Franklin. I wonder what
he would have thought of our mail service today. He would, I

Last Friday, July 23, we ended our Summer Reading Program
with a pinata party at the park across from the library.
Thirty-two participants were present to join in the fun. Each participant was presented with a certificate for having read 10 books
or more during the six-week program. We sincerely thank Mrs.
Apolinar Almance for the beautiftjl pinata she donated for the
party.

thanks to tfie parents for encouraging their children to join the
Reading Program. The children had a great-time this summer. We
wish these chifdren and all children of Marfa a great school year!
I'd like to remind the children to pick up their puppets and
scarecrows they made during the Reading Program.
Well, folks, we just got word last week that the confidentiality
of library records is now law. This law which will become effective September 1, 1993, will really affect a lot of our patrons.
Several of our patrons like for us to pick out their books to read.
Because no names can appear on the checkout cards, we will no
longer be able to tell if these patrons have read the books we
select for them.
Right now our two JTPA workers are helping type new cards
for all the books. Due to lack of funding these workers will only
be able to work until Aug.H3rWe still have a long way to go
before completing this project. If anyone is interested in volunteering to help us with this project, we would be most grateful. The
only skill heeded is to be able to type. Please call the library for
more information.
The Friends of the Library are busy getting ready for the Fun
Day in the Park which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 14. Please
see their ad in today's paper for more details. The funds raised
will be used to purchase new doors for the front of the library
building. We certainly hope you will join us and the Friends for a
4ay full of fun and games.
Till next time, see you at the library.
