New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 19, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Horoscope Stocks BY STELLA WILDER TUESDAY. APRIL 19 Born today, you are both artistic and practical, both idealist and realist. You definitely know which side your bread is buttered on — but you are often loathe to act on purely pragmatic principles. A conflict rages within you when you must decide between remaining true to your own standards — which may be unpractically high — and acting in accordance wit the demands of the world — which may be unremittingly materialistic. In the end, your sense of integrity wins out — but not untill you are emotionally exhausted. Although you do not welcome risk, you will accept a risky challenge should it seem right to do so in terms of your own future. You are ambitious, geared to success, desirous of fame and fortune. But you have no intention of making large compromises even for them. To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide. WEDNESDAY, APPRIL 20 TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Sharpen your technique before you attempt to work with others on projects requiring timing and precision. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Home affairs prove both difficult and rewarding today. Children come up to expectations — late in the day. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — A question of integrity occurs more than once today. You would do well to keep clear of compromise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take an original approach to an old problem if you would gain the attention — and praise! — of superiors today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You may find yourself a target for another’s cutting wit today. Make an effort not to respond. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Take the initiative. Get a new project off the ground without further ado. Give the young confidence. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Word from long distance tells you what you need — and want — to know. Make sure you haven’t garbled the message. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) - A romantic involvement may be “stickier” than you think. Try to extricate yourself gracefully. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — A popularity battle on the employment scene makes for an uncooperative attitude. Overlook what is pure rumor. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. IS) — Basic security may be threatened today — unless you are quick to assess the situation on the home front. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — Your first impression is your best one. Take heart. Heed warnings that are well meant, even if poorly expressed. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Self-discipline enables you to put what you know to best use. Don’t jump to conclusions.★ Charges Continued from Page I Goforth, also of River Bend, was traveling north. “A witness who was behind the Scheel vehicle saw it before the impact,’’ the trooper said. That witness said the Ford had whipped into the left lane, swerved back to the right and then veered left again, just in time to hit Scheel’s Pontiac head-on. “It happened so fast that nobody had time to react to anything," Mueller said. There were no skid marks on the pavement, indicating no brakes were applied. The w itness got out of the way by swerving into a bar ditch. Scheel’s car was reported to be going 50 to 55 miles per hour. “(Goforth) must have been going faster, because he drove her car backwards (from the point of impact),” Mueller said. "Of course, his car was a little heavier." Scheel was dead at the scene. She was buried Saturday at the Guadalupe Valley Memorial Park. The manslaughter charge will be reviewed by a Guadalupe County Grand Jury in May. It will be the first death charge ever brought against Goforth, but he has served two stints in the Texas Department of Corrections on charges of DWL A 1979 subsequent-offense conviction resulted in a two-year sentence for the New Braunfels man. He served almost three months of his sentence, received five months’ credit, and got probation for the remainder of his sentence in early 1980. In March of 1981, his probation was revoked on another DWI charge. He went back to prison in June, sentenced for not more than two, or less than three years. Trooper Mueller said he had been released just a few months ago. — DYANNE FRY★ Appraisal Continued from Page I rata basis from the district’s IO taxing entities. A proposed $44,900 increase in payroll (which would provide for one new employee and IO percent raises for the others) almost makes up for the $50,000 the district won’t be spending on mapping service next year. The total price to Tobin Research Inc. was $150,000, and Brucks will make his last payment out of the 1983 budget. Incremental increases ($500 to $5,000i in other areas of the budget, such as postage, copying expense, data processing and the district’s already-contracted payment to Thomas Y. Pickett appraisal service, make up the $45,000 difference. As far as Goodson could tell, those amounts are justified. But he’ll see what the committee thinks. ‘ Maybe we don’t need an outside appraisal service," he hazarded. (I*wis argued that point when the directors signed their 1983-84 contract with Pickett.) “Or, if this committee comes back with a recommendation that we ought to look at different data processing, then I think we ought to look alit." He had planned to have Brucks serve on the committee as appraisal office representative. Brucks said he would be glad to sit in as advisor, but suggested appointing a member of his staff — perhaps Fox — to be a voting committee member. Director Glyn Goff, who is also tax assessor-collector for the City of New Braunfels and the New Braunfels Independent School District, said he would serve as a tax collector rather than an appraisal board member. The committee will probably include Comal County Tax Assessor Gloria Clennan and Comal ISD assessor E.W. Neuse, l^wis also plans to ask for representatives from Garden Ridge, the York Creek Water District and the Guadaco Municipal Utility Districts. Man injured in fall; boy struck in park★ Bill Continued from Page I Society Animal Shelter. “This bill won't pass if people don't know about it. The penalty needs to be stiffened. Dogfightmg needs to be stopped ” Representative Edmund Kuempel plans to vote for the bill. “I’m definitely in favor of it," he said “I think it’s ludicrous to have two dogs pitted against each other for gaming.’’ “People need to call our representative Kuempel to show their support,’’ she continued. “Let him know how you feel. We’re getting a lot of opposition from the people who want to fight their dogs.” 'All humane societies are opposed to brutal activities such as dogfightmg," said Marvin Brown, president of the New Braunfels Humane Society. “It’s completely unnessary and I’m strongly opposed to it." “At the state level we influence legislation through THIN. (Texas Humane Information Network) as does the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) at the national level. Hopefully, the stiffer new law will help prevent the needless sacrifice of many dogs." “Texas is very heavy with dogfighters because of low fines,” said an HSUS investigator, who has been testifying in Austin in favor of the bill. “There are a number of places which will function well if the law is passed." Police lieutenant John McEachern is opposed to dogfightmg, but does not feel the bill will be effective if passed. He feels that it would be difficult to get convictions if the dogfightmg is upgraded to a felony. “Prosecutors, judges and juries will be reluctant to prosecute if it’s unduly harse. Some categories of human death are not prosecuted nearly as severly by statute as this would be. Why treat human death lighter than an animal death? “This is not to say it should go unpunished,” he stressed. "We need to enforce the current law vigorously.”★ Chamber. Continued from Page I missioners Courts down the road.” “I make a motion we support the court,” Chamber member Robert Orr said. "I’m more comfortable with the commissioners than I am a federal judge. I know they’ve struggled with it, and have no sinister plans to move everything away from the downtown luxurious offices for the commissioners,” he added. The motion was seconded by Mitch Sacco. In discussion, John Chum) said the viable, dynamic downtown area of New Braunfels attracted him IO years ago. “Since I moved here, I’ve watched the renovation of the Maul Plaza, the Utilities' building restored, so I don’t think it’s just the commissioners keeping the downtown alive. “The complexion is changing, and citizens seem to be reinvesting in the area,” Chunn added. “And I know Judge Clark can’t commit for other Commissioners Courts. But all I ask is that any moves away from downtown be looked at seriously, because other * Polar Bear ^ Ashburn’* Jr You Haven I Lived Until You ve Tried Pecan Cluster HANDMAID IKOM OUK m w ) i a Nor sh< >m Handmade Almond Bark Milk ParL ti White IN OUK KANI I LANDI anorn J Polar Bear b Ashburn** y By JACQUELINE SMITH Staff writer A man falling off his roof, a young boy hit by a car in luanda Park and various automobile collisions have kept local police, emergency medical and hospital personnel busy the last few days. Twenty-nme-year-old Steve Erben of 112 Morales Street, was taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital Monday morning after falling off a roof at 613 Tanglewood. The accident occurred shortly before IO a m. Details were not available by presstime, but hospital personnel said Erben, w ho was admitted to McKenna for observation, was in satisfactory condition Tuesday morning. Eight-year-old Jason Johnson, of 1648 Kraft I-ane, was also taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital after he was allegedly hit Saturday afternoon rn luanda Park by a car driven by Richard F. Bird of San Antonio. According to police reports, Bird’s 1981 Cutlass was southbound on luanda Park Drive when Johnson entered the roadway from the eastside in front of Bird’s car.

The accident occurred after Dounhoo’s car was hit by a car driven by Michael Robert Kozekwa of San Antonio at the loop 337 and River Road intersection.

In this fight, handlers were fighting housepets against the popular fighting dog, the American pit bull terrier, and placing bets to see how long the animal would last against the bulldog, the man said. Nora Gunn, Humane Society animal shelter manager, said she gets courts will look back to your words as guidance.” Clark told the Chamber directors that the Commissioners Court will meet in executive session Friday to discuss the purchase of real property for the new jail. “It’s common sense that the public, before the vote, will want to know where the jail will be built,” the judge said. “We’ll be talking about the Hanz and Water I Aine properties, and will make a decision a week or two at least before the election.” - DEBBIE DaLOACH ■ I 8 S ZP ^COMMERCIAL CREDIT a Control Data Company tfiv NEVI BHAI N1“ LLS • Land* Plaza Center 351 I.anda Street frequent calls about dogfights. “I get calls every week, at least once a week," she noted. “It needs to be brought out into the open, to let people know what's going on."
