House Delays Vote On Cutting Veteran Education Benefits

Posted/updated on: May 23, 2015 at 4:48 pm

John ZerwasAUSTIN (AP) — A Texas lawmaker has pushed back a vote on a much-watched bill that would make cuts to a free college tuition program for veterans’ children. The bill, meant to address the program’s rising costs,was briefly discussed Friday. But Republican Representative John Zerwas (pictured) postponed debate until Sunday, citing the measure’s “complexity and emotion.” Before floor discussion even began, Democratic Representative Joe Farias made an impassioned plea opposing Zerwas’ bill. The Vietnam veteran told colleagues, “Think twice, and open your heart to those that have endured the most.” Already Senate-approved, the bill tightens veteran eligibility requirements, cuts the number of free tuition hours and stipulates that benefits expire. The program’s cost to Texas public universities has climbed from $24.7 million in fiscal year 2010 to $169 million last fiscal year.

Texas Senate Approves Open Carry of Handguns

Posted/updated on: May 23, 2015 at 4:47 pm

Open CarryAUSTIN (AP) — Texas lawmakers pushed closer to approving the licensed open carry of handguns, but only after a fierce Senate debate over restricting police powers to question people carrying guns if they are legal. The open carry bill was expected to easily pass the Republican-majority Senate but got tangled in a bipartisan move to add a ban on police from stopping someone solely because they are visibly carrying a handgun. Senate approval came less than a week after a biker shootout in Waco killed nine. The bill still needs a final House vote. That chamber has already passed a nearly identical version. Supporters say the ban prevents police harassment of law-abiding citizens and racial profiling. Police groups say they must be allowed to determine who is legally carrying a weapon.

Lawmakers OK Bill Offering Fines for Posting ‘No Guns’ Signs

Posted/updated on: May 23, 2015 at 4:56 pm

No Guns allowed signAUSTIN (AP) — The Texas Legislature has approved fines for governmental entities that post signs prohibiting the carrying of concealed handguns in areas where licensed Texans are allowed to carry them. Authored by tea party-backed Republican Sen. Donna Campbell, the plan passed both chambers with little debate, despite opposition from some municipal groups. Saturday’s House approval 116-23 sends it to Gov. Greg Abbott to be signed into law. Local governments and other official entities would be fined if they post signs that might intimidate license-holders who are within their rights to carry weapons. Fines of up to $1,500 are assessed for a first offense and $10,000 maximum for repeat violations. The Texas attorney general’s office would receive complaints and investigate. Offending governmental bodies would have 15 days to remove signs before being fined.

The Texas House on Friday approved the measure, which would funnel state fees to motorcycle safety campaigns. It now heads to Gov. Greg Abbott. Five men wearing leather jackets and vests watched the vote. They’d advocated for the bill in place of three bikers who helped write the legislation but were among about 170 people jailed following Sunday’s melee. One of those watching from the House gallery, Ty Yocham, says he was delayed by an accident while heading to a meeting at the Waco restaurant where the police-involved shooting occurred. Yocham says he and other bikers running late turned around after hearing about the shooting, which killed nine people.

The Latest on Waco Shooting: Sheriff Takes Threats Seriously

Posted/updated on: May 23, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Parnell McNamaraWACO (AP) — State investigators have issued a bulletin warning that members of the Bandidos motorcycle gang may be plotting attacks on law enforcement, and law officers in Waco say it’s being treated as a serious threat. McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara says his office received the bulletin Friday issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety. McNamara says the bulletin warns of retaliation against officers and their families following a shootout with bikers in Waco that left nine dead, 18 injured and 170 jailed. McNamara says threats against law enforcement have streamed in since Sunday’s melee at a restaurant in Waco, though some are more plausible than others. He says, “Are they going to come into town at 100 miles per hour lobbing grenades and firebombs? Right now, we don’t know.”

A Dallas County jury deliberated about 3½ hours before finding Delvecchio Patrick guilty of killing Deanna Cook at her home in August 2012. Jurors could sentence Patrick to up to life in prison. Police say Patrick was attacking Cook when she called 911 with her cellphone, but the operator didn’t get an address. It took about nine minutes to find Cook’s address, after which dispatchers sent officers to Cook’s home. Officers knocked on the door, then asked for someone to call Cook back. The call went to voicemail. Officers also looked through windows of the home and saw nothing. Two days later, her family found her body.

gavelDALLAS (AP) — A 14-year-old Dallas girl has been sentenced to the maximum 40 years in custody for drowning an infant she was watching. A juvenile court judge in Dallas on Friday sentenced the teen, who was not tried as an adult on the capital murder charge. The teen earlier acknowledged being “responsible,” the term used in juvenile courts, for the January death of 2-month-old Justice Hall. Authorities believe the teen didn’t want her mother to adopt Justice. The family kept the baby because the infant’s mother was in jail. The teen’s mother was at work when her daughter drowned the baby in a bowl of water. A juvenile court judge will decide, before the teen turns 19, whether she’ll be paroled or be moved to an adult prison to finish her sentence.

Attorneys for Lester Bower, 67, argued to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the Grayson County jury that sent him to death row in 1984 didn’t have the opportunity to fully consider evidence that Bower had no previous record before he was arrested for the four slayings at a hangar on a Sherman-area ranch. The 5th Circuit late Thursday refused his appeal and refused to stop his scheduled June 3 lethal injection. Bower long has maintained he’s innocent of the October 1983 shootings. Parts of a missing aircraft stored at the hangar later were found at Bower’s Arlington home.

PUBLIC FORECAST EXPLANATION
ISSUED: 05/23/2015 1640C
Showers and thunderstorms have developed to our south, and should move into the
Tyler/Longview area before nightfall. Of much greater concern is the forecast movement of two
lines of thunderstorms into the region one early tomorrow and the second on Monday. Both of
these are associated with an upper air low over the Four Corners, and a second one trailing it over
California. These are capable of producing excessive rainfall, with flash flooding a likelihood.
Water courses are full, soils are moist, and the reservoirs are full. Thus, there’s no capacity to
absorb excessive rains, and flooding will be the result.
We should get a bit of a respite at mid-week, with another rather strong storm system
crossing around the 29th.
At 4 p.m. today, skies are sunny at most stations, with temperatures in the 80s and south
winds in the 10-20 mph range with higher gusts. RKP
