New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 4, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Opinions Dave Editor and Jim Managing Editor New Texas January Editorial One more squabble Its a new year and the government entities have found one more thing to squabble about concerning the proposed Ca nyon hydroelectric Thirty years when the dam was this county and most of the state was going through the harshest drought in recent When the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority and the Army Corps of Engineers decided to build the they had one thing in mind and that was to make sure that this area had water stored in case of drought that to be used by the Fish and Wildlife Department is getting in on the act and suggesting that releases from the dam should be used to enhance the environment for fish below the A nice but will it work GBRA says no and the Texas Water Commission says Mind your own While the government types are arguing over whos in the price of fossil fuel is on its way up It should be evident to everyone involved that the fossil fuel now used to generate our electricity is limited and Now is the time to plan for future energy Hydroelectric power is a cheap alternative energy It seems pretty logical to tap all that energy coming out of the dam everyday to keep New Braunfels light And it seems like a good idea to keep those little fish And for the million that this project is estimated to it also seems like somebody could figure out a way to do Most New Braunfels residents probably dont know what the hydro project is and the rest are skeptical of the whole City government and New Braunfels Utilities have wasted a lot of time and money with the Folks can argue all day about the project and have but one way or whether it becomes a reality or gets its time to get on with

has slipped below 50 percent or the first If there is anything special about race in New York it is the size of one part of the black population the black Underclass New says are probably the most desperately poor black people in the United unorganized and unru clustered in ghettos in Manhat the Bronx and Although fair housing laws helped many blacks escape ghettos like those in central Harlem
