Harry Pfullman of San By KATHRYN SCHOEMER Staff Writer A Dallas architect and the director of the Parks and Recreation Department for the city of New Braunfels conducted a workshop with the New Braunfels City Council to discuss developing plans for future use of 17.9 acres adjacent to Landa Park. Dennis Sims, landscape architect for J.T. Dunkin and Associates, and David Whatley, parks director, presented the proposed plans to council members Monday night. "The primary purpose of this meeting is to get input from council or anyone else (because) we want to make sure we’re not proposing something that won't work," Sims said. Sims said he wants the recreational facilities to blend in with the park and "not stick out like a sore thumb." The proposal calls for a botanical garden, aquatic gardens and an open plaza with waterfalls. An open play area would house volleyball units, horseshoe pits and a play structure for children "to be able to create a family atmosphere," Sims said. Two greenhouses would be incorporated into the park to grow annual color shrubs for the city and park area. Included in the proposal is a small amphitheatre designed to hold approximately 1,700 people for plays, festivals and bands, he said. The project could cost anywhere from $1.5 million to $2 million, if completed by a contractor, Sims said. But, if the parks department builds the park, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will either match funds with labor and equipment or match cash on a 50-50 basis, he said. And the parks department may obtain the first part of the money through civic donations. "I want to let you know we have worked with the Lower Colorado River Authority from the very beginning and they have approved of all of our concept plans and are well aware of what we’re doing," Sims said. Council members also approved of the plan. "Seems like the people are... receptive and I like this plan better than the first one I saw," said Mayor Amo Becker. New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Advisory Board conducted a public hearing Jan. 29 and received input to be used in the development of a master plan for future development of the 17.9 acres leased from LORA, adjacent to Landa Park. The 50-year lease contract requires the city to develop such a plan. Police reports One Injured In stabbing By STEPHANIE FERGUSON News Editor New Braunfels police are continuing to investigate a stabbing in a Clear Springs mobile home park early Monday morning that left a local men hospitalized. "There’s not a heck of a lot of details,” said Police Spokesman Martin Mayer. "They were out there drinking and got into some kind of argument.” The nature of the argument is unknown, he said. Police received a call around 2 a.m. Monday to report to McKenna Memorial Hospital to investigate a stabbing victim who had been brought to the hospital, Mayer said. Kenneth Joseph Sims, 21, a resident of the trailer park on Texas 46, remains in stable condition today at McKenna. "All they know is that the guy that stabbed him is an Hispanic male,” Mayer said. "The victim and the assailant were all drinking together.” Man severely shocked A 33-year-old New Braunfels man remains in the Coronary Care Unit at an Austin hospital today after he was electrified while putting up a television antenna. Eddie Hernandez was transported by helicopter to Brackenridge Hospital shortly after the 5 p.m. accident. "He and his father were erecting a TV antenna behind the house and the wind blew the top of the antenna into a 7,200-volt line,” said Ll. Robert Reed of the New Braunfels Fire Department. The accident occurred at the residence in the 1500 block of Cologne Drive close to 5 p.m. Pig Continued from Pago 1 before they could change anything. City management would need to classify it before they could make it a law, but "we would be able to work something out," he said. "It’s very difficult to be breed specific and meet the letter of state and federal statutes," Grohman said. Therefore, city officials must describe specific characteristics of the animal in order to make the ordinance legal. However, "it's a good possibility" that the ordinance could "pull through," he said. But Goodwin said she felt positive about the meeting with City Council last night. "I feel great right now ... and I’m glad I had a few on my side that were willing to listen to what I had to say. Hope fully, it will pass on the third City Council reading and I won’t be illegal anymore," she said. Goodwin’s attorney Norman Dean said he believes the ordinance will be amended, but Goodwin is still in violation of the city ordinance. "We’re going to try to get council to exempt her from that violation as part of the ordinance, if possible," he said. If that doesn't work, Goodwin and Dean will appeal her case at the Comal County Court-at-Law. They already have lost a court case. Bobbie Lyons, a breeder of potbelly pigs, said full-grown potbellied pigs are 19 inches tall and 2 feet long.
