New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 8, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Canada won't go along with Star Wars research OTTAWA (AP) — Canada will not formally participate in the research phase of President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative, known as the “Star Wars” plan, but does not oppose it, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney said Saturday. While    the    government is rejecting    the    U.S. invitation, private Canadian companies will be free to bid on research contracts in the Strategic Defense Initiative , he said. “After careful and detailed consideration, the government of Canada    has    concluded that Canada’s own policies and priorities    do    not warrant a g ivernment-to-government effort in support of SUI research,” Mulroney told reporters after a day-long meeting of legislators of his Progressive Conservative Party. The prime minister said Canada believes it would be prudent for the United States itself to proceed with the Star Wars research “in light of significant advances in Soviet research" in similar areas. He also said his government believes the research program is consistent with U.S. treaty obligations. In Washington. White House spokesman Albert R. Brashear said Mulroney had called Reagan and informed him of Canada’s action. “The president thanked the prune minister for the opportunity to work with Canadian private corporations that can and will participate in SOI research,” Brashear said. He declined further comment. The United States invited its North Atlantic Treaty Organization partners and other allies to participate in the Strategic Defense Inititiave, but so far no country has accepted without qualifications. Mulroney said he did not think the Reagan administration would be disappointed by Canada’s action. “This is decision made by a sovereign state, (with) an independent foreign policy which we have always had,” he said. Canada had at first expressed interest in the plan, with some attention on the number of jobs it might create, but it balked when Washinton requested a esponse within 60 days to its formal invitation, issued during a March meeting of NATO. In Hamburg. West Germany, Research Minister Heinz Riesenhubery was quoted Saturday as saying West German participation in research in the Star Wars plan “cannot be justified by civilian-research .ethnology gains." Council will consider two bond issues Issuing bonds. That is what New Braunfels City Council will be talking about at its Monday night meeting. Council will approve the emergency reading of an ordinance authorizing New Braunfels Utilities to issue $4.78 million in revenue bonds. The money is the first phase of Utility Manager Bob Sohn’s original $26 million proposal. it will be followed by $8.66 million in 1986-87, $4.63 million in 1987-88. and $8.49 million in 1988-90. With the issuance of bonds, Sohn says Utilities customers should see an average increase in a residential electric bill of 50 cents a month. Water and sewer rate increases should be around 40 cents a month for the average user. Also Monday, council will formally set the date for its own bond issue election — Oct. 19. The city plans an $11,755 million proposal, which includes improvement plans for parks, streets, drainage systems, and public buildings.

Heart Association, local grocers sponsor food festival Incinerator plans move forward The American Heart Association wants Comal County residents to think twice as they walk down the aisle — the grocery store aisle that is. This week H E B and Kroger stores in New Braunfels will participate in American Heart’s Food Festival. Developed by the American Heart Association, the Food Festival focuses attention on the selection of foods that meet AHA dietary guidelines. The two supermarkets will provide “help your heart" messages on grocery bags, display windows posters promoting the festival, have their emplyees wear stickers to promote the event. use print ads and other literature providing nutrition messages. Other activities could include cooking demonstrations, tours of the store to learn how to read nutrition labels on fowl packages, how to select lean cuts of meat, and ways to make food substitutions for a more nutritious diet. Americans Heart's Fowl Festival is the first national health awareness project held cooperatively by a national health agency and supermarket. “The week-long event is aimed at creating awareness of nutrition," according to William L. Winters, Jr.. M I)., president of the Texas affiliate of the AHA. “While a consumer will probably not make any major dietary pattern changes in one week, we hope that through this event people will become aware of the role diet plays in their overall health. This is the beginning of what we hope will become an annual nutrition awareness event." AHA’s guidelines for wise eating patterns emphasize weight control; a limited intake of cholesterol, saturated fats, refined sugar and swlium; and the assurance that the diet includes a variety of foods.

In the City-County Solid Waste Management Board meeting, recently, Charles Fiedler with Energy Advancement said negotiations with the Comal County Industrial Development Board are in progress. Fiedler’s company will try to finance the construction of the incinerator with Industrial Development Bonds Also the West German company, Seamanns-Alice, is in the process of becoming a partner in the project. “We are entering into contracts with construction engineering firms and with operating and maintenance firms," Fiedler said. The board members and Fiedler went over the contract changes recommended by the city attorney. The contract presented a month ago by Fiedler calls for leasing 11.9 acres of the present landfill to Energy Advancement Inc. which will build and operate an incinerator and use the burning trash to generate electricity. The $1 yearly lease, which the tenant can terminate after a 90-day notice, remains in effect for 15 years with two five-year renewable options. All of the cost of construction will be taken care of by Energy Advancement, and the municipalities and industries will pay $15.75 per ton in 1985 dollars for dumping. The increases in fees would be based on the consumer price index, rather than any company figures of increased operational costs because the latter system would lead to audits of books and arguments between the parties, Fiedler said. “We want a scale to measure the tonnage." City Manager Joe Michie said. “This system based on cubic yards of trash and numbers of trucks is not satisfactory." Fiedler agreed that could be done. “Who is responsible for any pollution that occurs?" Bob Quent, Calendar of events New Braunfels City Council: 7:30 p.m. Monday, City Hall.

The incineration process disposes of 80-85 percent of the solid waste, making the landfill last much longer. "In a Chapter ll situation (bankruptcy) and the court takes over the assets, will we be allowed any say-so ?'» Michie asked. County Judge Fred Clark said the city-county board could state a preference, but ultimately the court was the trustee. “Bankruptcy court would listen very closely to your wishes, because you would still be the landowner and major client,” Fiedler said. “I just don't want to see the plant shut down even for a day," Michie said. “That’s my chief concern." Both city and county representatives on the board were concerned with a part of the contract that allowed Energy Advancement to sublet some of the land without the board’s consent.
