October 10, 1997

Council commits $10,000 to push through TYC bid

Staff Writer
PECOS, October 10, 1997 - Hoping to enlist the services of a legislative
expert, or lobbyist, in Austin, city council members approved spending
$10,000 (half of the lobbyist's fee) in the hopes that Reeves County
Commissioners will foot the other $10,000 at their meeting on Monday.
The legislative expert would help to move the city's application with
the Texas Youth Commission for a new juvenile corrections facility
through the last stages of the process in Austin.

No changes have been made in personnel within Pecos' ambulance service,
which has been under scrutiny for their lack of dues collection by the
city council, and no progress report was submitted by the service at
yesterday's council meeting. City Attorney Scott W. Johnson, who was to
have met with ambulance chief Bill Cole, said that they "missed each
other the first part of last week," but promised a "fairly extensive"
report by the next council meeting.

The council went into executive session to consider the employment of a
police reserve officer. Chief of Police Troy Moore requested that
Fernando Luis Valenzuela, who is assistant manager for Bob's Thriftway
and also serves as a reserve officer for the Reeves County Sheriff's
Department, be given the position. The council approved his request.
Money already budgeted by the city was approved for the Pecos Day Care
and the Community Council of Reeves County. Both organizations were
given $1,500. This money will help defray utility bills for the day care
and provide for the Community Council's Meals on Wheels program.

The city also took action in response to a letter from Russell N.
McInturff, of the law firm of Calame, Linebarger, Graham, and Pena,
concerning properties in the area that have been struck off the tax
rolls and, consequently, are not generating tax revenue. McInturff
suggested that, in order to return the properties back to the tax rolls,
the city make a "mass offer to the public to make offers for these
properties." The council voted to allow Tax Collector Lydia Preito take
the bids on the property and then bring the bids before the council for

Also, the city reappointed Valera Gatewood as the city's representative
on the board of directors on Reeves County Appraisal District. "She's
done an excellent job I understand," said Mayor Dot Stafford.
The municipal and juvenile court reports, along with the accounts
payable, were approved.

INS bottleneck delays citizenship process

Staff Writer
PECOS, October 10, 1997 - Some legal immigrants trying to become U.S.
citizens are not having much success. Designated fingerprint services in
Pecos, Midland, and Odessa all report extreme difficulties getting their
applications processed by Immigration and Naturalization Services.
The Reeves County Sheriff's Department was authorized as a Designated
Fingerprint Service (DFS) on April 3, 1996. Pam Bustillos, in personnel
and training at the sheriff's office, traveled to El Paso for a one day
class in July of 1996 where she earned her DFS certification. Still, she
said, application packets are being returned by the INS stating that the
sheriff's office is not authorized to perform the fingerprinting duties.
"They'll say they're not signed, when they are. They'll say there is no
date of birth, when there is. I even sent a letter asking for an
explanation but haven't heard anything yet," Bustillos said. "We're
still fingerprinting, but it's hard on them (the candidates for
naturalization) and they get mad when the files are returned."
Many applicants for naturalization come all the way from Presidio and
parts of New Mexico because the sheriff's office here does not charge a
fee for their services. "These people have to go all over the place. I
feel sorry for them," said Rosalee Alvarado, an employee of the
sheriff's department.
"They're getting returned for any little thing," said Lt. Mancha of
Odessa Detention Center, "saying we are not DFS certified, or we don't
have the right signatures." But a listing of Designated Fingerprint
Services issued by the INS includes the detention center.
At the Midland Police Department they are seeing the same problems. An
employee of the department who asked not to be identified said that
often applications were returned for "stupid reasons." Once a card was
returned because it was written in blue ink (the form requests black ink
be used). "We've even had cards that were filled out by INS employees
that were returned," she said.
Once fingerprints are taken they are sealed in a manila envelope for
security reasons, and then, along with the application, are sent to El
Paso. From El Paso the applications are routed to Lincoln, Neb. In
Lincoln, the applications are reviewed and, if they are correct, sent to
an FBI station in West Virginia in order for the fingerprints to be
recorded. But the fingerprints don't always arrive undisturbed.
According to Bustillos, the sheriff's office has had prints returned
because they arrived at the FBI lab already opened.
Applications also get tied up in the process for extended periods of
time. One application, according to Bustillos, was received at the INS
in July and not returned (even though it had been rejected) until the
Sept. 3.

Immigrants seeking citizenship are under time restraints. Lt. Mancha, of
the Odessa Detention Center, said that once the application is returned
the applicant then has 87 days to resubmit before they are fined.
David Reyes, a certified citizenship instructor in Pecos, estimated that
more than 100 legal aliens attend his classes seeking citizenship each

Attempts to contact a representative from the INS at both the Lincoln
center and the El Paso office ended in dead ends for the Pecos
Enterprise. The telephone line at the INS branch in Lincoln was busy for
four days. The El Paso center offered a pre-recorded voice that stated
that the general delivery mailbox "was full and could not accept any new
messages" and that "no operators were available." This also went on for
four days.
At the office of Congressman Bonilla, who was himself unavailable,
Leslie Sanchez, head of immigration issues, said that they "hadn't heard
anything" about the situation, but promised to make some calls to

PBT board postpones search

for superintendent until spring

Staff Writer
PECOS, October 10, 1997 - Last night's school board meeting was a little
like a big game of musical chairs, but without the music. The meeting
was called to order, minutes from past meetings were approved, then the
board went into executive session, and everyone but the board of
trustees had to get up and leave.

At about 8 p.m., the meeting reconvened in open session, so everyone in
attendance at the meeting filed back in, took their seats, and the board
announced that they were going back into executive session to discuss
the Level III grievance of Lydia Prieto. Again, everyone attending the
meeting got up and left.

At 10:07 p.m., the meeting was called back into open session, and the
board announced that it had decided to take no action on a proposed
settlement in the case of Lozano vs. PBTISD, no action on the Level III
grievance of Lydia Prieto, no action on the Level III complaint of TSTA
members and that they would go into executive session again to
discuss/approve selection of finalists for Superintendent of the
Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District. The audience left the
board room again.

At 11:26 p.m., the board went back into open session, announced that
they would take no action on the finalists for the Superintendent
position, postponed all other agenda items until the next meeting, and
adjourned one minute later.

According to school board president Frank Perea, the board decided to
wait until spring and conduct a new superintendent search then because
they did not have enough applicants this time. They made this decision
on the advice of Bryan LaBeff, the Region 18 adviser they hired to
conduct the superintendent search for them.
Interim Superintendent Ken Norris has agreed to stay on in his current
position until a permanent replacement is found, Perea said, but there
are still details on his contract that need to be worked out.
