Bill Clements, who promises to veto any tax measure other than the continuation of the temporary levies. ‘ You either make cuts or you find additional revenue.” Lewis said. Lewis added that the $2 9 billion tax package on the House schedule today would take care of about half the problem The package would extend the temporary increases, scheduled to expire Sept I. for another two years The increases were approved last year, raising the gasoline tax from lo cents to 15 cents per gallon, and the sales tax from 4' h percent to 5'4 percent The state faces a projected $5.8 billion deficit if current spending levels are continued in 1988 89 •I don't think that's enough." Lewis said of the $2.9 billion package, but it s the first step.” The speaker said he told Clements $2 9 billion falls short of a solution, but Lewis said the governor “is standing firm on a veto ” "I don't think that's enough/' Lewis said of the $2.9 billion package, "but it's the first step." Clements and Lewis met for about 30 minutes prior to Wednesday’s House session. “We’re trying to get our numbers together.” the gover nor said afterward. Clements has demanded spending cuts in state government, but Lewis said there are few that can be made. “I think we have been in the pro cess of making cuts for the last four years.” the speaker said. “I can assure you if there has been any fluff or surplus in any state agency's budget, we would have probably found those ” Clements’ plan is a map to big trouble for the state. Lewis said “It leaves us very short of where we need to be I don’t think it sets any example of us moving forward on education or any other thing we need to do in this state.” he said “We have a prison problem that has to be addressed We have to build more prisons “I think we are going to have to continue the commitment to public education and higher education And those are going to be costly.’ Lew is said LESLIE KRIEWALDT Stall Photographer Above, Janice Lee works with her son Robert while, at right, Jon Paul Boucher points out a math problem to his dad John Boucher Students turn tables on parents Students in Kathy Cook s fourth grade math class at Carl Schurz turn ed the tables on their parents Wednesday and quizzed them about mathematics Nina Ryder, one of the eight parents who turned out for Wednes day s class said she went to class with her son because she wanted to understand more about his classes I just wanted to sec1 what the\ re learning Sometimes he works on things and I can't help him because they do things different!) than I did when I was in school she said Ryder and her son Rusty Ryder worked on math problems and Cook explained the temonolog) used in modem elementary math classes Ryder said she has a better understanding of her son s math ( lass after sitting iii for a day Its amazing bow smart these kids become when their parents are sitting here Cook said during the class The students had their parents work some problems on the blackboard Hie teactier took over and the parents worked with their children solving some math pro hlems Cook reviewed the different types of work the students are doing and explained to the* parents that she and the students are revving up for achievement tests She said the motive behind inviting parents to class was to orient them with the students'daily routine At the end of class instead of assigning homework Cook recoin mended each parent do something a little special for their child because “they ve worked real hard all year and they deserve some treat After the claw Cook said she was impressed that parents would take time out during their day to visit their child's class Some of die parents even had to take time off from work to attend she said “I feel like the more they know about what s going on the more sup port I II get from the patents Oink said We cover a lot more in the fourth grade than when most of us weie in school We have certain pro cedures that we follow and they re a little different than wtiat most of the parents are familiar with I Ixtpe it helped Cook said after the class lf we helped even one parent learn more about what their student is doing then it was worth it I be teacher extended an invitation to any of her students parents to visit th** class Hus is Texas Puhi it schools Week arx! sdvwh in the New Braunfels and Comal districts have t**en celebrating with a variety of events aimed at familiarizing patents w it bi schools Annex Continued from Page IA tion vote Wednesday, the council voted not to allow a resident to construct a guest house because plans called for it to be built within 15 feet from the back of the prx> pertv. in v idation of city ordinances Charles Kila. chairman of the city's planning and zori me commission, said the annexation will be profitable for the city in the long run and will benefit the residents of the area You've got to think of what you re stopping." he told council members You re stopping mobile homes from coming in there You re stopping portable buildings You re going to increase the value of those homes in the annexed area " Kila said Garden Ridge s building codes and or dinances would upgrade the annexed areas He said there is no way the area would be left to develop on its own without interference from San Antonio The annexation move took in a one half mile strip north and northwest of the city. including Twisted oaks Sutxiiv sion Park Lane Kstates and Country Kstates K a isted the estimated expenses for the annexed area totaling more than $15.UUU for the first year That numt*e: included additional expenses for municipal in surance fire protection police protection, legal fees election fee:- appraisal district fee- emergency service fees, building inspection fees and St. '"ii to improve hie roads in the annexed area The small city took 3 78 miles of road into its ixrundanes Kila said the planning and zoning commission which prepared a repor on the fieriest s and problems of annex mg the area, offer ed the council no recommendation ‘ Planning and 7 ming took no position just transmit ted the petition 'he said The wishes of the people have been expressed with the petition It was just a transmit talmatter But there was no objection toannexatioz Garden Ridge which has a property tax rate of lo . cents peril valuation will not collect taxes from the an nexed area until .fan I 1989 Kila said that including atxmt $8 non income from taxes tile city -
