During a,short news conference held after this Monday's meeting, Castillo said, "I'm getting a lot Of heat from a lot of people wanting to correct this thing." Describing Brown's original statement as "uncalled for," Castillo added, "I am in consultation with my attorney about what can be done." Later, when asked why he had not responded to Moore's statement, Brown said he already had discussed it with Moore and didn't want to cause "a shouting match" with Castillo's supporters attending the meeting. Brown denied there were any factual errors in what, he originally said, although he acknowledged that he had described two hot-check charges as a single case. Shortly before the March primary, a warrant was issued for Castillo's arrest on a charge stemming from a check for more than $600 written at a local paint store. Restitution was made on the check, and the charge was dismissed without Castillo ever being arrested. The case still pending involves a check which, although turned over to the county attorney's office after last spring's dismissal of the other complaint. Sources differ on the amount of the check; Castillo has said it was for $45 and Brown says $49. Asked it he felt it was necessary to bring in a visiting judge to hear a case involving a $49 check for which restitution already had been made, Brown indicated he supported whatever steps were necessary to see that justice was done. Brown also said that only the original amount of the check was repaid; the complainant still was owed a $10 fee required to submit the check for collection by the county attorney's office. Castillo has asserted that the case would have been dropped long ago if he were not a candidate for public office. Trip down under Local doctor recalls trip to World Expo in Australia. In Image.

Commissioners vote to keep JP's office at courthouse Cont'd. from Pg. 1 necessary to have a justice of the peace court housed in. Schertz and two justice of the peace courts housed in Seguin. If Bargfrede is moved out to the Law Enforcement Center and then 1990-91 redistricting requires another JP court in Seguin, Sagebiel explained, this could involve having a justice of the peace moved back- into the courthouse. Sagebiel recommended that any such move be postponed until after the census and redistricting. Schubert said he opposed the office reassignment plan because there was no estimate of its cost. Brannon responded that it will cost $3,000 to $7,000 Which is small in comparison to the estimated $80,000 total for installing the courthouse elevator. "I don't see any way it could go over $7,000," Brannon said, and his figures appeared to be supported bjr county Building Maintenance Supervisor Richard Engledow who estimated it would cost $5,000 to furnish and equip the vacant courtroom at the Law Enforcement Center and $2,000 to $3,000 in expenses Committees make reports Cont'd. from Pg. 1 He said a new mill is in the works that will broaden the production line and improve quality. /. |§everali_committee reports were made including one on the upcoming New Year's Eve Party that replaces the annual Harvest Happening event.

Tickets were given to the directors for sale. George Gregg, executive vice president, pointed out that in comparison to New Year's events in San Antonio, he believes $50 to be very reasonable. He also said safe transportation would be provided for those needing a ride home. Faye Chessher reported on the annual banquet. The Chamber's banquet is scheduled for Feb. 17.

Bargfrede opposed the move and asked that no changes be made until after redistricting following the 1990 Census. "For the last 50-sorrie-odd years the justice of the peace courtroom has been in the courthouse where it is now," Bargfrede said. "It is within walking distance of most 'of the people that use the office. "You're always talking about saving money. Why not save some money at this time?" Bargfrede asked, referring to the $5,000 estimated cost of furnishing and equipping the courtroom at the Law -. Enforcement Center. Bargfrede'S reluctance to move drew the support of several audience members including tPrecinctl Commissioner-Elect Charlie Willmann and the Democratic candidate he defeated in the general election, Paul Castillo. "We've been serving the citizens of Guadalupe County for an awful long time out of this courthouse," Willmann said. "I think we need to think a little bit about the people we're serving." 'There is a problem about pie population being served," Castillo said. "The Justice Department tyill be contacted on this matter." .; In an earlier effort to utilize the courtroom at the Law Enforcement Center, commissioners adopted a plan shifting boundaries of two Noting precincts in order to have the Law Enforcement Center site located in justice of the peace Precinct 3 rather than Precinct 1.' > - This step was taken after Precinct 3 Peace Justice Roy Dreibrodt %A agreed to move his Office frortq a rented building in Zorn to the Law : Enfon^Mni-Genter^Tlfie proposal, , however, fell through wjhen the Vert- ing Rights office of UitTufS.
