Letters to t h e e d i t o r
Editor:
Three recent public hearings in West Texas will have little to do
with whether or not Texas builds a $90 million dump for nuclear
waste near the Rio Grande near tiny Sierra Blanca.
People attending the meetings in Sierra Blanca, E l Paso and
Alpine in August and early September heard two administrative
law judges say that the three-member Texas Natural Resource
Conservation Commission need consider neither public opinion
nor the judges' own recommendations in making its final decision
Whether to grant a license to build the dump.
The meetings were well-attended, despite the fact that the State
Office of Administrative Hearings did nothing to publicize the
second and third hearings. A large majority of well-informed and
eloquent local residents expressed their overwhelming opposition
to the proposed dump, which the Low-Level Radioactive Waste
Disposal Authority seeks to build in the area of Texas most likely
to experience earthquakes, a region where faulting and fracturing
of substrata is common, and where a major fault underlies the site.
The vast majority of witnesses speaking in favor of the nuclear
waste dump came from the medical community. Doctors from E l
Paso and Galveston argued that modern treatment of diseases will
end if the waste products of nuclear medicine are not buried in
Sierra Blanca. A physician from New Mexico countered that most ~
radioisotopes lose their radioactivity rapidly to become harmless
in a few days. Many radioisotopes used in diagnostic medicine are
recycled. Less than one hundredth of one percent of the total
radioactivity of the dump would result from medical research and
treatment.
Most (85-95%) of the curies in the dump will come from
commercial nuclear power reactors. Some of the substances from
these reactors remain highly toxic and radioactive for thousands of
years. They will be present in the waste stream which Texas
hopes to bury in Sierra Blanca. Lobbyists and lawyers hired by
Texas Utilities, Houston Lighting and Power, Maine Yankee and
Vermont Yankee (nuclear power plants in states who seek to share
their nuclear waste with Texas under the Texas Compact Bill
pending in the House) were keeping silent among the crowd.
These companies and their shareholders will be the greatest
beneficiaries of the Texas nuclear waste dump, since they will be
relieved of any liability stemming from die production,
transportation or storage of their waste.
The Low Level Radioactive Waste^Disposal Authority, an
agency of the state government, is appealing to another state
agency, the T N R C C , to grant it a license to build the Sierra
Blanca dump. In a brief dated September 16, 1996, lawyers for
the Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Authority argue that
the T N R C C should deny party status to most citizen opponents
who appeared at the three West Texas hearings, members of the
granting agency were all appointed by Governor George Bush Jr.,
who is known to have lobbied in Washington for House passage of
the Texas Compact Bill. The Authority's arguments assert that the
site is safe, the design is safe, and therefore health and safety
issues raised by opponents seeking party status are irrelevant
because they are based on fears about health and safety. The
—
Authority also seeks to deny party status to neighboring counties
and cities who are fearful the dump may leak and pollute their
precious water supplies. An independent geophysical firm from
New York has published a report containing what it calls "fatal
flaws" in the site and design of the facility.
If the T N R C C denies party status to West Texas individuals,
environmental groups, and neighboring cities and counties, it will
reveal our country's stated beliefs in democratic, representative
government to be no more than a sham. The public hearings in
Sierra Blanca will be revealed as a mask behind which nuclear
utilities and the governmental entities they manipulate work to
further their commercial interests. What is entirely absent from
these proceedings is any protection for the populations, both
human and animal, of the precious ecosystem of the Texas
Trans-Pecos.

Editor:
Every now and then, I like to check my investments so recently I
decided to reflect on my chances of collecting a $100 bill from
Kinky Friedman, that erstwhile country singer who is now
churning out detective novels as if they were latkas at a Chanakah
celebration.
When Victor Morales first decided to take on Phil Gramm and
began driving that litde white truck miles and dreary miles
through the sovereign state of Texas for the dubious privilege of
winning the right to dump Gramm from his seat in the United
State Senate. I made the rash comment that he just might do that.
The Kinkster - never one to modulate his strong opinion offered to be 100 to my 50 that Gramm would absolutely clobber
Morales. Knowing a good bet when I see one, I climbed aboard
pronto.
Now it's getting close to show-me time. Morales has defeated
some outstanding Democrats to achieve the Democratic
nomination, and - resisting all blandishments to fly - is still
chugging around the state, gathering up steam. He is still doing it
on a shoestring. Gramm, hiding behind his millions of special .
interest money, is yelling foul.
But apparendy he can't lay a glove on Morales, as the latter said
at the Democratic convention, I am youl That, I interpret to
mean, is he will represent the general public in the United States
Senate. What a welcome change.
The national campaigns of the Clinton-Gore versus the
Dole-Kemp campaigns - when one strips away all the various
diversionary sideshows • boils down to need vs. greed!
For the first time in many elections it looks as if the national
Democratic Ticket has a chance to sweep the Texas Electoral
votes.
When you get down to the actual voting on November 5, it's
going to boil down to whether the vast middle class would rather
pocket a promised 15% tax cut from Dole which, if delivered,
would unbalance the budget or will remember the many needs of
their fellow citizens. (And their own needs, as well!)
This is one election that could be so close every single vote • in
every state - could be the one that counts, isn't that exciting? You
might be the actual person deciding who is going to call the shots
for the next four years or longer. Texas large bloc of electoral
votes could be decisive!

It really boils down to the number of previous Non-Voters who

Dos Amigos
By T . L . D A V I D S O I ^
Going to have a meal at Dos Amigos in Paso Lajitas, Cohuila is
a pleasure. The very pleasant atmosphere and outstanding rood
make this a must for visitors to South Brewster County. The Mexican specialties are very authentic Northern Mexico cuisine, i.e.
hot.
We started with a bowl of delicious guacamole. Creamy ava'cadoes with chopped onions and chiles make this a wonderful concoction. Accompanying this were fried corn tortillas and some of
the best chili picoso (hot salsa) I've ever had. Chopped jalapenos
with tomatoes and onions, garlic and cilantro stewed to perfection.
The restaurant sits among a couple of houses and across the yard
from a pen of ostriches, a very Mexican building with bullfighting
scenes on the wall and good Mexican music on the jukebox. The
food is fresh and prepared while you wait.
After the appetizers my friend and I got enchiladas verde and
came asada. The enchiladas were a thing of beauty: neatly stacked
homemade corn tortillas filled with white asadero cheese, onions, and green chiles covered with a nice spicy green sauce. These enhiladas were simply wonderful. The asada was a delightful mixture of very tender chunks of beef, onions and chiles in a
delicious sauce. We also tried the chiles rellenos which were very
good. Long Pablanos stuffed with asadero cheese ad batter-fried
in lard. These rellenos aren't and shouldn't be on anyone's regular diet; but they are great and should be tried once. The standard
rice and beans accompany the entrees but they are more than
standard. The rice is spicy and good and the refried beans are simply scrumptious. Hot flour and corn tortillas and a cold Carta

"We were excited and honored

Shorthorns win Dust Bowl,
14-0, over Blue Devils
M A R F A - T h e Marfa High School
Shorthorns' defense stood up to 3 A
Presidio Blue Devils shutting them
down to only 110 yards on the
ground and forcing five turnovers
to win 14-0.
/
With winds blowing at 30 miles
per hour and dirt blowing everywhere, the Horns had to' relay on
the ground game to win.
The Horns' defense had the Blue
Devils guessing by changing the
defense from afive-manfrontto a
four-man front to blitzing linebackers to stunting defense tackles.
"We kept changing our looks to
try to force some turnovers and it
seemed to work," MHS Head Coach
Jack Ruiz said.
One big defensive play which
changed the momentum ofthegame
was a fourth down play where the
Blue Devils decided to go for a fake
punt at the Horns' 45-yard line.
But, six-foot, four-inch Jacob
Lujan ran down the sideline and
tackled the quarterback two yards
short of the first down giving the
Horns good field position.
Leading the Shorthorns in tackles were Jonathan Muhle with 13:
John Vasquez, nine; Manny Baeza,
nine and Joseph Orosco, eight.
Senior Leroy Gutierrez made a
key interception and returned it 26
yards to give the Horns good field
position.
"On the offensive side. Offensive Coordinator Coach Sebastian
Cervantes called an excellent game,
but our quarterback just made a
few wrong decisions on crucial
down which stopped some good
drives." Ruiz said.'
The 'Moose' Miguel Barraza
carried the ball 25 times for 97
yards and one touchdown. Senior
Baeza had 15 carries for 72 yards
rushing.
Quarterback Eric Garcia rushed
for 34 yards on 12 carries and
scored the second touchdown
Ruben Villanueva scored the two
point conversion with a pass from
Garcia.
The Homs did manage to complete a couple of passes. One of
them set up the Horns second score
when Garcia connected on a 42yard pass to Gutierrez.
"I felt we played a very good
defensive game and made some big
plays when it counted.
"Our offense played good enough
to win. but we're still making too
many bad decisions on the option
game. We'll have to iron out those
mistakes before we play our first
district game against Rankin." Ruiz
said.
