Bock eyes Senate seat FEMA agrees to new mapsNew Braunfels Unicorns beet Canyon Cougars, Page 7A By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer Bennie Bock of New Braunfels sat in the State House of Representatives for IO years. Now he's thinking about being Sen. John Traeger’s successor. Traeger, 64. has talked as recently as Friday about retiring after 24 years in the legislature. He is a member of the Senate Finance Committee and the legislative Budget Board, and has sponsored more than 300 successful bills during his IO years in the House and 14 years in the Senate. If he does retire, District 21 will be up for grabs, and Bock knows it. “I enjoy being where the action is,” Bock said Saturday. ‘‘I was elected to the House in 1972, and served until January 1983. I’d like to think I did a good job, and that there are folks out there who would remember my service and support me.” In 1972, Bock took his first stab at state politics and ran against Republican Jack Borchers for the right to represent Guadalupe, Comal and Caldwell counties. His political advertisements asked the voters to “Believe in Bock,” and he beat Borchers by more than 4,000 votes. On the eve of his 1972 victory, Bock said, “I intend to carry out my commitment to bring a strong voice for effective and responsible representation to the halls of the state capitol.” Highlighting his IO years in Austin was his service as chairman of the Liquor Regulations and Environmental Affairs committees for two terms. He was also chairman of the Sunset Commission. Bock opted against re-election in 1982, and Republican Edmund Kuernpel from Seguin defeated his opponent, John Taylor of See BOCK, Page IZA By DANA OVERSTREET Staff writer For more than a year, property owners, builders, and the city have fought a long, expensive battle with the Federal Emergency Management Agency over the location of flood prone areas here The fight is over now and the property owners have won. At 8 a m Tuesday, maps used to appeal the ones submitted by FFMA will become the official maps used by the city to issue building permits. In August 1984. FFMA issued revised flood elevation maps for this area showing new flnnd plain areas and designating a floodway in which building is strictly regulated Three months later, engineers hired by a group of property owners appealed the maps, saying that PFM A’s engineers used incorrect data in calculating base flood elevation. Then for a while, nobody knew which maps to use — the 1976, pre-FEMA review maps; the 1984 allegedly incorrect FEMA maps; or the Espey, Huston and Associates appeal version So in May, FEMA agreed the city could use the 1984 maps to issue See FEMA.

Or are you? Both adults and children should exercise extreme caution to keep this Halloween safe. If not, the consequences can be more frightening than ghosts or goblins, local officials said. The traditional practice of trick-or-treating has dropped off in popularity, but there are plenty of fun-filled alternatives like group-sponsored haunted houses and parties to Uke its puce. For those children who still go trick-or-treating, here are some good rules to follow: SUy in familiar neighborhoods, and only visit homes that show a welcome signal such as a lighted porch or yard. Costumes and masks should not restrict movement or eyesight, or trail on the ground. Face paint or makeup products can provide frightening effects while allowing freedom of sight. Children on the Halloween trek should wear bright-colored customes easily saan by motorists, and should ba accompanied by an adult.
