Texas airman dies in apartment
fire in Germany
RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany (AP) — U.S. mil-
itary officials say a West Texas airman stationed in
Germany has died in a fire at his off-base apartment.
Authorities at Ramstein Air Base on Monday iden-
tified the victim as 26-year-old Airman 1st Class
Robert J. Hernandez from El Paso.
Authorities say Hernandez died at his home in Ot-
terberg, Germany, in the fire Sunday
Investigators believe the fire broke out in the
kitchen, then engulfed the entire apartment. Military

No sensors in SUV where 2 Texas
police dogs died
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A South Texas sheriffs de-
partment has heat sensors to protect police dogs but
the devices were not installed in an SUV where two
Bexar County Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz says police
dogs will not be used during the day until the equip-
ment is installed. The San Antonio police dog unit
will assist the sheriffs department as needed.
Ortiz said Monday that maintenance workers did
not know how to install the sensors, which alert offi-
cers when the dog-carrying units get too hot. The ve-
hicle windows are automatically lowered.
Two dogs were discovered dead July 25 in a county-
owned SUV at the handler’s home. Ortiz says the
deputy apparently forgot the dogs after he noticed his
horse was caught in some barbed wire.
Dog handlers will also get additional training.
Killer of Texas police sni tch
set to die today
HUNTSVILLE (AP) — Convicted killer Marvin
Wilson is looking to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep
him from the Texas death chamber.
Attorneys for the 54-year-old Wilson say he’s men-
tally impaired and should be spared from lethal in-
jection in Huntsville Tuesday evening. The high
court has barred execution of mentally impaired peo-
State lawyers contend the single test that indicated
mental impairment was faulty and the results are dif-
ferent in all other psychological testing of the Jeffer-
son County man.
He’s set for execution for the abduction and fatal
shooting of 21-year-old Jerry Williams. Authorities
say Williams was a Beaumont police informant killed
in 1992 for providing information that led to Wilson’s
arrest on drug charges and the seizure of cocaine
from his apartment.

Group urges spraying
DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas County Medical Soci-
ety says the county should do aerial spraying imme-
diately to help reduce the spread of the West Nile
The nation’s top health officials say more serious
illnesses from West Nile virus have been reported so
far this year than any since 2004. Most have been in
Texas, especially around the Dallas area.
Mosquitoes pick up the virus from birds they bite
and then spread it to people.
Dallas television station WFAA obtained the Dal-
las County Medical Society’s letter that says doctors
are becoming more concerned as this season’s out-
break has reached historic levels.
The letter was sent to the County Commission,
which may discuss the matter at its meeting today.

AMR plans cuts
DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines expects to lay
off 40 cargo workers at Dallas-Fort Worth Interna-
tional Airport in late September.
In a letter to state officials, the airline linked the
job losses to the company’s attempt to cut spending
as it restructures under bankruptcy protection.
“Regrettably, reducing our costs requires that we
must make a number of tough decisions. Several of
these very difficult decisions include a reduction in
force,” Michael J. Waldron, American’s managing di-
rector of diversity and talent development, said in a
letter to the Texas Workforce Commission.
Waldron said that 36 cargo agents and four coordi-
nators would lose their jobs around Sept. 21.
The state agency released the letter Monday.
In February, American announced plans to elimi-
nate about 13,000 jobs worldwide, although it has
backed away from some of those layoffs as it negoti-
ated new contracts with labor unions.
