• The Sierra Vista Herald
FORT HUACHUCA — With five individuals taken into custody Sunday by fort law enforcement officers, the sixth annual protest against the post ended. For the Rev. Jerome Alexander Zawada, a Franciscan Roman Catholic priest from Tucson, Sunday was at least the second time he was taken into custody for illegally entering the installation. He and three others — John Edward Heid of Tucson, E. Robert Carney Jr., of Tucson, and Mariah D. Klusmire of Albuquerque, N.M.— were all given letters prohibiting them from post property for a year, fort spokeswoman Tanja Linton said. After receiving their letters, they were released at the fort’s East Gate. One other unidentified man, who refused to give his name, was turned over to the FBI for further action, she said. This year’s event, called “the annual infestation of protesters,” by a counter-protester who did not want to be identified, had fewer people than past ones.
