THE BAY TOWN SUN Wednesday. April 23, 1996 i San Angelo's drinking water poor FORMER BASEBALL STAR WILMER "VINEGAR BEND" Mizell, right, reminisces with Laverne Fuller about baseball during a breakfast meeting for rice farmers here. Mizell, who now serves as assistant secretary of governmental and public affairs for the U.S. Agriculture Depart- mept,' spoke at the breakfast hosted by Fuller. Baseball fans remember Mizell as a great pitcher with the Houston Buffs, St. Louis Cardinals and the 1960 World Series winners, the Pittsburgh Pirates. (Sun staff photo by Jim Kyle) Autocratic movie director Otto Preminger dead at 80 NEW YORK (AP? — Otto Preminger, the autocratic director whose 39 films included .'• Anatomy of a Murder," and .-Tfre:.; v Man With The Golden Arm,' f -*and often dealt with subjects then considered taboo, died today. He was 80 and had Preminger died at 12:42 a.m. his apartment, with his and a nurse at his police spokesman Sgt. Severin. Preminger was born Dec. 5. 1905, in Vienna, Austria, and earned a law degree there in 1928. He came to the United States in 1935 and the following year made his first U.S. film, "Under Your Spell." He was an autocrat of the movie set, an actor who portrayed German officers in films and a dictator with actors, many of whom he browbeat into superb performances. A number of actors rebelled at his haughty manner, but most respected his professionalism and artistry. Off the set, he was an affable and charming raconteur. He was also a daring innovator, challenging the film industry's strict censorship code in landmark films. SAN ANQELO (AP) - What ta?te^:liHe; a fragrant blend of shriitip and wet dog, Godzilla's bathwater or the Dallas Cowboys' sweatsocks? How about something "pumped from a bog in Uganda and treated with the soap scum from the bathtub of Col. Khadafy?" Try San Angelo's drinking water. On second thought, maybe you'd better not. Those rancid remarks were but a few of the responses in a "Describe the Water Contest" conducted by Jack Cowan, a columnist for the San Angelo Standard-Times. Cowan asked residents of this Southwest Texas city of 80,000 to complete the phrase, "San Angelo water tastes like ..." He indicated that some of the best entries were X-rated and unprintable but concluded that they "surely will help to inspire the city council and city staff ... to seek remedies for the water situation." San Angelo gets its water locally from Lake Nasworthy, Twin Buttes and O.C. Fisher reservoirs. Because of low lake levels, the city has been piping in up to 18 million gallons of water a day from a reserve source, said City Manager Stephen Brown. "For several months we've been bringing in 60 to 70 percent of our water from Lake Spence, which has even worse water than we do," said Brown. How bad is it? "On a scale of one to 10, with 10 .being the b«st, it» a iVfe ... but without it,-we'd be high and dry right now." With a dry laugh, so to speak, Brown said he pffered to remove columnist Cowan's water meter "and let him haul his water from the river." : Undaunted, Cowan awarded first place in, his contest to Yvonne Carter, who wrote: "San Angelo water tastes like it's been filtered .through the dust and drippings scraped off a Trashaway sanitation truck with a sweaty palm during its final trip to the dump grounds on a sweltering summer day with a load of chumming fish and dead minnows from Eddie's Bait Shop." Runner-up Chris Casella said the water tastes like "it is one grade below West Texas crude" and proposed that the "Lake Levels" section • of the newspaper be switched to the oil page. Several readers suggested the water had been filtered through cow chips, fresh buffalo chips or an "oily pigeon's nest during a dust storm." Insisted Rex Lewallen: "It has enough microscopic animal life to deep-fry and serve buffet-style at the city's next council meeting." A recent visitor's favorite was submitted by Jan E. Pope, who said the water tasted like a "fragrant blend of shrimp and wet dog with just a hint of that part of the floor under the refrigerator where the drip pan is." Added Pope: "This really took some research. I actually drank some water out of a tap to get just the right whang." The most ambitious response came from Mike Williams, who obviously is no stranger to bad water. He likened it to "a gallon of water off the coast of Key West, strained through a leaky asbestos roof into an Appalachian coal miner's bathtub, dumped over his floor and into a tin can formerly used as a silkworm farm and currently in the back alley of; Sunset Boulevard, aged for five years In a rusty culvert under a deserted highway in Brazil, then burled in William Perry's oldes't" shoes under a toxic waste dump;for a week, put in a beer bottle found in the cellar after 10 years and set adrift in the Pacific Ocean until found floating in, the swamps of Vietnam, carried in the sun over the Himalayas by a marathon runner until it reaches Europe. 20 Libyans to be expelled . BONN, West Germany (AP) — The Cabinet Wednesday decided to expel at least 20 of the 41 Libyans accredited to the radical Arab nation's embassy in Bonn and place restrictions on the rest, government sources said. The expulsion order resulted from Monday's resolution by the 12-nation Common Market to reduce the size of Libyan embassies in response to suspected Libyan involvement in 'international terrorism. ' '••• Speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, the sources said the government also decided to reduce the number of West German embassy staffers in the • Libyan capita] from 22 to 19.
