Bolton, auto mechanics instructor, (ladillac. The car is to be used for diagnostic and Mine warfare school may move By The Associated Press CORPUS CHRISTI — Navy and congressional sources say the Navy's mine warfare command and training operations may be moved to Ingleside from Charleston, S.C. £ A Navy plan expected to be released by mid- December will include ship assignments to all Navy pWts, including Naval Station Ingleside, the Corpus phristi Caller-Times reported Friday. | The plan ia expected to further consolidate mine- Warfare operations and training at Ingleside, and will include specific vessels to be assigned to the South Texas Homeport. "We expect that over time the mine-warfare command may locate here," said Naval Station Ingleside spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Bruce Cole. 'There is a consensus that would make sense, and they could transfer some training functions here as well." The Charleston Naval Base spokesman told The Associated Press he had no comment. "There is a lot of discussions of the mine warfare command looking at different options," Lt. Cmdr. Max Allen said Saturday. What's new on video shelves? '£ Its been a dry spell at the theaters this past week, waiting for the big holiday openers. So we're doing video this weekend. But, "The Addams Family" and "Cape Fear" opened downtown at the Grand and "Billy Bathgate" opened uptown at the Cinema (along with "All I want for Christmas") so ni see you at the movies. New and worth watching: : "Impromptu," James Lapine directed this witty, beautiful period piece about George Sand's relentless pursuit of Chopin. English actress Judy Davis ("My Brilliant Career") is magnificent as Sand. But the screenplay 1 !•% terrific ensemble piece with an impressive cast including Mandy Patinkin, Bernadette Peters and Julian Sands playing Franz Liszt. "Impromptu" is a must-see for anyone who loves music and/or literature. ; "Silence of the Lambs," Anthony Hopkins' oscar-nominated performance as Hannibal the Cannibal liechter is riveting in Jonathan Demme's chiller thriller. Jodie Foster delivers a fine performance as the FBI trainee called in to work with the demented psychiatrist in cracking a chain of serial fellings. Scott Glenn plays her boas. ' "Switch," Blake Edwards just loves to do sex comedies. The director of "Victor, Victoria" is again entranced with changing sexes as Ellen Barkin plays a man sent * Marijuana supporters lead vigil outside jail .By The Associated Press • SAN MARCOS — A man ar;rested for marijuana possession .'continued his hunger strike Satur;day, a day after about 30 protesters shouting "Let Joe go" ^demonstrated outside the Hays j County Jail. *, Joe Gaddy, 30, was arrested rthis spring after walking into the i;San Marcos police station and • lighting a marijuana cigarette. He •was sentenced to four months in •;jail and began serving a 120-day • sentence for possession of marijuana on Nov. 14. He has refused '; all meals since then. •; A dispatcher at the Hays : ; County Jail said Saturday that Gaddy was still in the jail's infir- ;marv and still refusing to eat. Deja View back to earth as a woman to endure a little sexism. Jimmy Smits and JoBeth Williams co-star. A slow start and a pat ending, but the middle is great and filled with terrific sight gags. Barkin uncomfortable in high heels is continually hilarious. "Backdraft," Ron Howard's blistering homage to firefighters never ceases to remind you that the real star of the movie is the •fire. WilMam Baldwin and Kurt Russell play brothers"; who ap^ proach their job and life from different perspectives. Robert DeNiro plays the fireman investigating some murderous arsons. Donald Sutherland does a fine bit as an arsonist who needs to stay locked up. "Madonna-Truth or Dare," a technically brilliant piece of work by a young filmmaker that is not only entertaining, but reinforces her press. She is always onstage and she calls all the shots. The best line is uttered by Warren Beatty. It carries an R rating for good reason. "Arachnophobia," directed by Frank Marshall, is a comically scary piece about a young doctor with that affliction who has the misfortune to move into an old home infested with some deadly spiders. Julian Sands, Harley Jane Kozak and John Goodman co-star. This one is fun. "V.I. WarshawsW is a pleasant little screen translation of one of the popular books about a female detective following in her father's footsteps. Kathleen Turner handles the part well. Charles Durning co-stars. Newly-released is John Schlesinger's marvelous film "Yanks," made almost two decades ago. It's about a pair oflovers in World War II England. Vanessa Redgrave and William Devane and Richard : GereJarid Lisa Eichhorn play the • lovers. Don't bothers i' "Scenes from a Mall," Paul Ma- zursk/s bomb about a couple having a very public marital spat. Woody Allen and Bette Midler play the couple. It will certainly send Woody back to his own scripts. "Nothing But Trouble," a perfectly useless film that has no redeeming social value whatever. It wastes the talent (albeit questionable judgement) of Demi Moore, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy and Chevy Chase. "Sibling Rivalry," Carl Reiner's comedy had potential, but suffers from a bad screenplay. It stars Kirstie Alley, Scott Bakula, Jami Gertz, and Carrie Fisher (who has the one good line in the film). Sam Elliott has a brief but pivotal role.

Christmas without cookies? Don't even think about it, say kids of all age«. In Betty Crocker's Christmas Cookbook, there are nine different variations of the favorite basic sugar cookie. Scrumptious confections are also popular for giving as well as consuming, and the easy-to-follow recipes in Christmas Candy require no special equipment other than an inexpensive candy thermometer. Two sure-to-be favorites, American Country Living Christmas are lavishly illustrated and a delight to browse through. Each even has a section about chestnuts. Many delightful crafts and ornaments do not take long to create and in Folk Art Christmas Ornaments and Christmas Crafts the step-by-step instructions and diagrams help speed up the process. Floral designs, wreaths, candle rings, and Victorian dolls are just a few of the handmade treasures included in these titles. The latest edition of The Trapp Family Book ofChristmas Songs is beautiful and has more than fifty songs for eleven countries. The Family Book of Christmas Songs and Stories is another recommended seasonal treat. Should you wish to listen to holiday music instead, our varied audio collection includes these two recent titles: A Brenda Lee CDhristmas and Michael Martin Murphey in Cowboy Christmas. A charming little book by the National Wildlife Federation, Trees of Christmas has .unusual stories and wonderful color photographs. One entry, "A Kind of Miracle" by Charles Kuralt, is particularly heartwarming. In February 1948, the communists seized power in Czechoslovakia in advanced of scheduled elections. Hopefully your holiday will include time for rereading those favorite claMic* M I wanted to Advise you we have • lovely new edition ot A Christmas Carol Abo, we own The Night Before Chrut- mas in all three versions: original, Texas and Cajun. Children will also love the latest adventures of the Fabulous Five in Christmas Countdown. The Holy Babes celebrate with poems and songs in Christmas Is Coming while older readers should enjoy the sounds of Robert Frost's Christmas Trees. Finally, when the kids are snuggled in front of the VCR, I recommend you show these new titles. Let them travel back in time to a Christmas past, in an award- winning production of the classic Dylan Thomas poem A Child's Christmas in Wales. This is not your, usual animated special, rather it is a beautiful look at cherished traditions which families can enjoy together. Another different video, Th* Night Bifan ChriXma* includes the black end white movie of that title, and two lancinating black and white puppet shows: Tht First Christmas and Santo Clout' Punch and Judy. Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons - of course there are new ones each season and in Family Chriftma* Favorite* Volume 2, kids should be captivated by "The Christmas Circus," "Sports Champions* and "The House Where Santa Lives."
