Teen shoot driving in south Laredo

From Times staff reports Early Monday morning Luciano Garza, 17, from the 500 block of Peña, Rio Bravo, was shot while riding in his vehicle in Laredo, police said. According to police reports, the incident occurred at about 1:13 a.m. at the 7000 block of S. Zapata Hwy. Garza was shot on the right forearm. Apparently, the bullet went through the door, according to a Laredo Police Department report. Garza, a United South High School student, was treated by a private physician for the injury and released. Police investigators kept Garza's vehicle as evidence, to determine the angle and trajectory of the bullet that penetrated the automobile.

Mir falling moves to Friday

MOSCOW (AP) -- Russian space officials said Monday the Mir space station will be dumped Friday, one day later than planned, and the parliament speaker made an appeal for President Vladimir Putin to grant the aging station a reprieve. Space officials had previously set Mir`s controlled descent into the South Pacific for early Thursday, but said Monday it would be postponed by one day because the station`s orbit was dropping more slowly than expected. Mir was orbiting about 142 miles above the Earth on Monday and was expected to drift down two more miles by Tuesday. Mission Control wants Mir to descend to 132 miles before aligning the station for the final maneuver. If everything goes according to plan, a cargo ship docked at the station will fire its engines twice during two consecutive orbits to lower the station further and then, several hours later, fire one last time to send the Mir hurtling into the South Pacific between Australia and Chile at around 1 a.m. EST Friday. Fearing that Mir`s unstable batteries could make it impossible to use the station`s computer to guide its descent, space officials have worked out a backup -- using the onboard computer and separate radio communications of the Progress cargo ship. Space officials say the 15-year station must be dumped because it has grown decrepit and the government lacks the funds to fix and maintain it. Nevertheless, many cosmonauts and politicians, particularly those nostalgic for Soviet times, have pushed -- in vain -- to extend Mir`s life.

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The process of implementing an idea involves much less red tape than you had expected. You accomplish things more quickly than you had planned and even have time left over to add extra features. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although you would much prefer to be left alone to work on a problem, you must allow other people to participate. The presence of a mediator might prevent a serious argument. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Any form of wordplay or mental acrobatics appeals to you at this time. A board game could provide your group of friends with hours of entertainment. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Quell the impulse to flare up, lash out or otherwise act on your feelings. An overly emotional reaction to a situation might make it far worse than you expect. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If you've been operating on autopilot for a while, you might be surprised to discover how far off course you have strayed. It's time to get back on track. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The signs have pointed toward change for a while, and finally you see that it could be immediately at hand. Although you might be nervous, this might be the bold move that takes you closer to achieving your goals. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Go out on a limb -- do something outrageous and ignore anybody who stares at you. You might discover that you have a creative streak a mile wide. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might toy with the idea of uprooting yourself from your current surroundings and moving to a brandnew area. Test the waters with a short visit before you make any major changes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You are endowed with a special gift for selling innovative ideas to the general public. You present a strong argument for something you believe in completely, and your enthusiasm is contagious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might want to set aside responsibilities that used to be important but suddenly seem outdated. Put them down gently; after you take a break, you might want to pick them up again. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) No hope is too high today; any expectation can be met. You are riding the crest of a giant wave of positive change, and the world before you seems awash with new possibilities. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might be among a select group of people who realize the truth about a recent occurrence. Keep your knowledge secret until you are sure you are sharing it with the right individuals. YOU BORN TODAY Courage and optimism are your strengths; patience and tact might be your weak points. You have no false modesty and prefer the straight shot to the double entendre. However, your overall effectiveness will increase exponentially if you learn how to overcome your weaknesses and use them to your advantage.

AUSTIN (AP) -- Hands and voice quivering, Randall Dale Adams recounted for a panel of sad-faced politicians Monday what it felt like to peel away the pages of a desk calendar from his prison cell, counting down the days until he would die for a murder he didn`t commit. The calendar grew thinner. When there were three pages left, his sentence was commuted to life in prison. Following 13 years in jail, he was released in 1989 after his wrongful conviction of killing a Dallas police officer was revealed by the documentary "The Thin Blue Line." "By the grace of God, having not been executed, I have the opportunity to stand before you today," Adams told the House State Affairs Committee. He used his story to plead with committee members to approve a bill by Rep. Harold Dutton that would halt executions in this state for two years while a committee is created to study the Texas death penalty. "We are killing innocent people," Adams said. "Cease this railroad train that we`ve got rolling down the track. Just pull it into the station for a little bit." Texans supporting the moratorium flooded the committee room to tell lawmakers why they should vote for it.
