(Staff photo) Commissioners vote to move JP's office out of courthouse Qont'd. from Pg. 1 break room. '•• EngledSw explained that a major expense would be installation of a Sump pump to remove drainage water from the new break room which lacks -the necessary plumbing for normal drainage. Regarding space to be gained by moving the auditor's staff into the existing break room, Engledow said, "There's very little difference." '"I'm concerned with the amount of space he's not going to gain," • Brown said. "It really would be advantageous to put him in the IP's room." ^When Sagebiel called for a vote qn his motion, which had been sec- qnded by Schubert, it was defeated 2*3. Brannon, Brown and Bulgerin vjited against it. jiAfter Sagebiel's motion was rejected, commissioners took up the agenda item calling for Bargfrede's rnbve out to the Law Enforcement Center and his courthouse rooms being taken over by the auditor's staff. "When we had discussed ,that, I was concerned with moving the JP out and not using that (space) for somebody large enough for that (space)," Brown said. During a previous meeting, Brown joined Sagebiel and Schubert in a 3-2 vote rejecting Brannon's seven-step plan for office reassignments, the first step of which entailed Bargfrede's move to the Law Enforcement Center. At that meeting, Brown suggested moving County Attorney Elizabeth Jandt and her staff into the JP's rooms. Brannon, however, pointed out that the rooms being vacated by Bargfrede would be inadequate for the staff of the county attorney whose offices currently occupy the entire second floor of the tax office building (old First National Bank building). "This room is out there, and it's not being utilized right now," Brown said of the vacant courtroom at the Law Enforcement Center. "It's dead space out there, and it's been dead space for almost a year." "It cost the taxpayers quite a bit of money to put that area in there," Bralhnon said of the unoccupied courtroom at the Law Enforcement Center which was occupied by the Sheriff's Department in November .1987 and where the county's new jail opened in May. Regarding the cost of furnishing the new courtroom and offices, Engledow earlier had offered a thumbnail estimate of $5,000, but he pointed out Monday that the estimate was made without consulting any contractors or furniture suppliers. Bargfrede said the $5,000 estimate didn't include some of the costs to be incurred. "I don't have the money in my budget," he said. "You're forcing the issue; so you're going to have to foot the bill," Bargfrede told the commissioners. Also voicing concern about the cost was Schubert who pointed out that litigation over a Justice Department complaint could be. expensive. "You want to spend some more • money to fight 'em in court?" he asked the motion's supporters. Brown's motion included no timetable for completing the moves, and commissioners indicated that dates will be set during next Monday's meeting when they'll consider approving plans, specifications and advertising for bids on the elevator installation project. In related action Monday, commissioners unanimously approved Brannon's request to allow him and Bulgerin to trade offices. Brannon explained that he would prefer an office fronting on the hallway rather than the one he currently occupies which is within the commissioners' courtroom. Willmann, who after Jan. 1 will .occupy the office vacated at that time by Bulgerin, said he wasn't contacted about the proposed exchange until Monday morning but that he had no objection to Brannon's plan. "Just so they give me an office somewhere in the courthouse," Willmann quipped after' Monday's meeting.

Mitchell was elected in the closed meeting by a unanimous voice vote after first narrowly missing a majority in his race against Sens. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Bennett Johnston of Louisiana, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Meanwhile, Senate, Republicans today re-elected Bob Dole as their leader. A window was Woken to gain v entry into a residence in the 700 block of South Guadalupe Street, and a large quantity of coins was reported missing. The occupant told police the intruders took $231 in cash and dimes, an unknown amount of old coins, and some coins in a,piggy bank. A videocassette recorder, microwave oven, and Kodak camera were reported missing in the burglary of a residence in the 500 block of Avenue C. No estimate of the value of the property was given. The intruders broke a window to gain entry. A door glass, was broken to gain entry into a residence in the 800 block of Braden.

Five cars belonging to backers of Corpus Christi's Carroll High School also were reported stolen, said a police officer who was on duty Saturday night, when Carroll defeated Harlingen High 21-10. Vandals attacked cars decorated with the Carroll Tigers' blue and white and with paw imprints, said Harlingen Police officer Ramon Tickets still available for Christmas Vespers Vela, adding the investigation will continue.. Carroll student Cynthia Gutierrez, who attended the game in Harlingen with a group of friends, said they returned to their van and found deep cuts in their tires. "It was so sad that you can't just have good, clean fun," she said. "People need to be aware of this because once we win this game this coming weekend, we'll need to go out of town again." Cont'd. from Pg. 1 didn't know of the incident until telephoned by someone who was inquiring about having heard that some local people were taking anti- rabies injections. "The people in the area between Highway 90A and Interstate 10 east of Seguin need to be aware and to watch for any strange-acting animals," Mondin said, adding that Dietz's neighbors along County Road 204 were not aware of the rabies diagnosis. Mondin also voiced concern about the animal's carcass not having been burned or buried immediately after the autopsy, but Dr. Sullivan said this v wasn't unusual or hazardous. "They (animal carcasses) are normally dumped," Dr. Sullivan said. "The virus doesn't do well in a dead horse," he said, explaining that the rabies virus will die within three hours of the death of the host animal. "As far as the dead carcass, that doesn't pose a threat." Although the rabid weanling had been penned or pastured with others of similar age, Dr. Sullivan said none of the other young horses have shown any symptoms. "It was the only one that exhibited any signs" of rabies. He also pointed out that horses are not potent carriers of rabies because they do not usually inflict skin-breaking bites as do dogs and cats. "You could ingest the rabies virus — just swallow some of it — - and it wouldn't pose a threat unless there was a mouth sore or cut" enabling the virus to enter the blood stream, he explained. Dr. Sullivan also pointed out that the series of five anti-rabies injections is not the excruciating experience that it was in years past. Anti- rabies treatment formerly consisted of 14 to 21 injections given daily in the abdomen, but it's now five shots in the arm. He said everyone on the staff at Crossroads Veterinary Hospital has taken the series and receives boosters every two years or when exposed* He also noted that the incubation period for the rabies virus is longer in horses than in other animals. While the incubation period generally is 15 to 50 days, horses can take three to six weeks to develop any symptoms. ,Hawaii's, Inquye, at 6.4, the; oldest and niost senior in th,e, ,,§enate, : , pitched himself as the most experienced of the three* His liberal voting record is in line with traditional Democrats. r Johnston, 56, is the most conservative of the three. Mitchell, 55, a former prosecutor and federal judge, is a liberal like Inouye but less tradition-bound. He appealed to Democrats seeking someone who would appear less ideological but still could act as a strong public speaker for the party. ^Tickets are still available for the Dpc. 2 presentation of Christmas Vpspers at Texas Lutheran College. ^The presentation of the 53rd arniual celebration of Christmas Vespers, "His Kingdom is Glori- oi£," will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the cojlege's Jackson Auditorium. ;Dec. 3 and Dec. 4 presentations arg sold out. ^Tickets are complimentary and arg available at the auditorium.
