Murder suspect is brought back from Delaware TALLADEGA Larry Donald George 'vas in the Talladega County Jail this morning awaiting trial in a six-year-old murder case that ended with his capture in Delaware. Capt. W.E. Hurst and Detective Tom Bowerman were sent to Wilmington, Del., Tuesday and returned Wednesday afternoon with George, who is accused of killing two of his neighbors and wounding his estranged wife, Geraldine Simmons George. George was charged with capital murder in the Feb. 12, 1988, shooting deaths of Janice Morris, 29, and Ralph Swain, 35, and the attempted murder of Ms. George, who was left paralyzed from the torso down. George, who had been living in a wooded area near Wilmington, was captured Sunday morning by two New Castle County, Del., undercover police officers acting on a tip from an informant. The fugitive, described by Talladega Police Chief Mike Hamlin as a commando-type individual, had been living in a dugout bunker next to a river in Wilmington. George had initially refused to waive extradition, but changed his mind and signed papers Monday allowing Talladega authorities to bring him back to Alabama. District Judge George Sims ordered George held without bond. A trial date has not yet been set.

Associated Press Court rules man is liable for his horse SAN FRANCISCO A man whose horse was involved in a fatal car accident can be charged with involuntary manslaughter, a state appeals court ruled. In 1992, one of Arbis Shipley's horses strayed onto a coastal highway and was struck by a car, killing a passenger. The 1st District Court of Appeal said Wednesday evidence showed that Shipley, owner of the Sea Horse Ranch, knew about previous escapes by other horses and about a defective fence that separated the ranch from the highway. The ruling requires Shipley to stand trial in the death of Viola Sheutrum, 76. Involuntary slaughter is punishable by up to four years in prison. The ranch, as a corporation, is also charged with manslaughter and could be fined if convicted. Shipley's lawyer, Ted Cassman, said he planned to appeal to the California Supreme Court.

By Phillip Associated Pr Rawls MONTGOMERY Gov. Jim Folsom's Alabama First education plan stayed on track through the first round of legislative votes, but it's approaching the location where it derailed on its last trip through the Legislature. House and Senate committees approved Folsom's legislation Wednesday and put it in line for consideration today in the House and Senate. Charlie Waldrep, Folsom's chief of staff, was ecstatic. "You've got to approach this process like going to a Jimmy Swaggart revival. You expect a miracle," he said. Folsom introduced his Alabama First plan in the Senate as one bill, and the Senate Rules Committee approved it unanimously Wednesday, along with his school discipline bills. All of the bills cleared the committee in 10 minutes with virtually no discussion. Committee Chairman Don Hale, R Cullman, predicted the Senate will approve Folsom's plan, as it did in the regular session, and the fight will be in the House. That's where an unusual coalition the Alabama Education Association, Alfa Farmers Federation, Eagle Forum, Republicans and others blocked it last time. "We're going to the mat on, this," said Joe Reed, AEA's assistant executive secretary. Folsom split his Alabama First plan into 43 bills in the House. The House Ways and Means Committee worked on the bills from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., and approved all of them except one, despite strong opposition from Republicans and lawmakers aligned with the AEA. Folsom's bill setting learning goals and objectives for students the heart of his package passed 10-6. His bill to create community service centers at schools passed 11-6, but only after the committee made the centers optional with each city and county school board, rather than mandatory. The only bill that died was one prohibiting schools from collecting fees from students for Workbooks and similar items. Folsom's decision to slice the giant Alabama First bill into 43 bills in the House was supposed to divide the coalition that blocked the legislation in the regular session. It worked, said Bill Smith, chairman of the A-Plus education group. "It's very difficult for people linked with AEA to oppose community centers, and it's very difficult for Republicans to oppose improving accountability through tenure revision," said Smith, a key supporter of Alabama First. Republican Jack Hawkins said the state shouldn't be tinkering with good schools systems, such as Vestavia Hills and Hoover in his district. "If this passes, you will have killed local initiative forever," he said. "I don't think this will ruin anybody's education system. It will give some defined Kials to reach," said Rep. Mary Zoghby, a obile Democrat who is sponsoring part of Folsom's package. The other components of Folsom's education plan a $166 million tax increase, a school funding distribution bill, and a $1.2 billion bond issue for school construction projects haven't been considered in the special session and will wait for another special session this summer. Hopefuls JSU m From Page 11 A From Page 11A campaign war chest, Lindsey is financially running well ahead of his primary challenger, P. Scott Dennis of Heflin. Dennis is so far using only a $4,000 loan to finance his campaign. By last week, Dennis had spent about $948 of that. In House District 35, challenger Pat Shaddix came in well ahead of incumbent Bobby Crow in terms of fund raising. Shaddix, an Oxford resident, reported raising $4,560 and also took out a $2,100 loan. Although the bulk of Shaddix 's contributions were less than $100, he also received a $500 contribution from the Montgomery company Frazier-Lanier. Shaddix spent almost $6,000, leaving him with an end balance of $764.01 . Besides getting $1,900 in contributions, Crow, who lives in Coldwater, received a $3,000 loan from his wife Peggy. His largest contributors otherwise were the Alabama Oilmen's Association PAC and the Alabama Optometric PAC, which both chipped in $500 contributions. Crow spent about $5,200 during the reporting period, which gave him an end balance of $783.04. The board adopted housing rates which last saw an increase in 1991 that vary with dorm types. At Crow, Curtiss, Dixon, Fitzpatrick, the rate will be $540 per semester, up from $515. The rate at Sails Hall, formerly an athletic dorm, also will be $540. At Logan and Patterson, the rate will increase from $635 to $665. At Sparkman, the increase will be from $525 to $550; Luttrell will remain at $460, and Rowen, a men's dorm with private rooms, will remain at $600. Rates at university-owned apartments will increase by $5 per month across the board. If Pannell Hall, formerly a dormitory, is converted to apartments, the rates will be $215 per month for an efficiency apartment; $225 for a studio; and $240 for a one-bedroom apartment, all including electrical service. The board's unusual Montgomery meeting on Monday coincided with the last day of the legislative session. Meeting in the capital was for the convenience of board members Gov. Jim Folsom and Secretary of State Jim Bennett. Goals From Page 11 A when he was working to help other disabled people as psychotherapist. Prosthetics companies and a outdoor outfitter are sponsoring his trip. So far, though, his only problem has been finding the 535-foot high point in Louisiana. "The roads to the place were all muddy and hard to follow," he said. "They were just logging roads without any signs." Huston said he is ready even though he knows it is all uphill from here. "By having faith in God and believing in yourself," he said, "you can overcome what challenges you face." 1994-95 Tuition Rates at Alabama universities Jacksonville State University $1 ,740 Troy State University $1 ,800 - Auburn University $2,100 Auburn University at Montgomery $1,905 University of Alabama $2,260 University of Alabama at Birmingham $2,511 University of Alabama at Huntsville $2,480 Based on information supplied by the universities for full-time undergraduate students. .
