afternoon by Mike owner of Docs Here is Torres winning tale Every year in December I take my wife to see her folks in which is in Brewster While there several years I went hunting and shot an 8point black tail The next day we started bacck to New At Del we decided to go across the border to eat I had the deer on the back of the When we came back out of the I could see the head and horns of the deer in the back of the pick so we headed When we made it I stopped at my daddys house to show him and my brothers my But when I flipped the tarp all I had brought home was the neck and head with the horns on it Somewhere along the someone cut the head and horns off and helped themselves to the rest of the deer What kind of surprise do you think I fell I was the laugh of the neighborhood And then Torres added a I still have the horns and every time I look at them my stomach surprised by news ByMARKWARNKEN Staff Writer New Braunfels City Council mem bers agree they cant fault City Mana ger Paul Grohman for considering a career but some would have preferred hearing about his recent applications for two job openings directly from him instead of through the local Mayor Pro Tern Ramon Chapa and Council Member Clinton Brandt said Grohman had told them prior to the information being released by the but Council Members Loraine Bill Arnold and Rudy Seidel said they didnt know until they read it in the newspaper or heard it on the Council Member Paul Fraser said Grohman told him in a telephone conversation that a story was on the radio and would be published in the newspaper later that Last Grohman confirmed he was one of 14 finalists for the city managers position in Temple and one of 151 applicants for the top city staff post in Mayor James Goodbread said that in a meeting Wednesday afternoon he told Grohman he was disappointed that Grohman didnt have confidence enough in him to inform the mayor and council before last I felt he had an obligation to inform the council so that they would be better Goodbread I was with I thought it was very poor the mayor said this situation per haps wouldnt be such a concern to himself and some council members if Grohman hadnt done a similar thing in accepting a lunchtime teaching position at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos last fall without first informing the I can perceive the need of further perhaps in executive ses with all the council members for their Goodbread Goodbread said that as hes not even remotely interested in enter ing a bidding war for Grohmans Grohman is amply compen and he recently had a more ihanample and to me there is absolutely no issue of getting into a bidding Goodbread Goodbread said the city manager has to make that are in the best interests of himself and his fami He said although Grohman is not hes doing a good I wish only the best for but there are proper ways to go about this and there are proper lines of commu nication to and I dont think Grohman followed he If he is we have that same Goodbread Grohman was hired by the New Braunfels City Council in April 1988 after serving as the city manager of Rockport for three Prior to he served as city manager of Denver from 1983 to who said Grohman told him about the resumes just prior to the media has thought all along that the city manager he helped select would stay four or five years before moving on to a higherpaying job in a larger It doesnt surprise me that he did but he did it a little sooner than I thought he actually Chapa But when we first hired I told the other council members that he would come in and use us as a step ping That was no problem to me because I knew this guy was young and and the only thing that would result is that he would do good work for New Braun fels trying to prove that hes a good city Chapa said Grohman puts in long hours doing an excellent especial ly in addressing complaints by resi dents and the concerns of the City But you cant please just like being an elected and hes going tot make some Chapa Theres some people in the community who have done nothing but try to create animosity among the citizens toward Kraft said she would have appre Grohman says applications keep hand in ByMARKWARNKEN SUM Writer Applying for city manager vacan cies in Temple and Tyler doesnt indi cate a desire to leave New but simply a possibility to further a career and continue to provide for his City Manager Paul Grohman Its always difficult to knoW whats going to be best for your fami ly in the Grohman In my Ive grown very com I have had an excellent working relationship with the council and I have absolutely the finest staff on New Braunfels is a wonder ful place to and Ive become very But I also have to look at the reali ties that there can be political swings in If the philosophy of the community generally changes five or six years from I dont want to be the kind of guy who hasnt put together a resume in eight or 10 years and hasnt been for an interview in that length of time and hasnt really kept up with the job I think that would be impru dent on my part and on the part of my he Grohman said he appreciates the councils efforts in the last couple years to move him closer to what he believes is an appropriate salary in the but doesnt have any intention of involving the city in a bidding war with another But if the council ever said they want to negotiate to keep me a longer period of sure Id sit down and talk with he As far as notifying the council before sending out Grohman said he thought that would be Theres nothing Theres nothing Its simply a look type and I think that would be extremely Theres no sense worrying people unnecessari he Grohman said his chances of being offered a position dont really appear too good because there were more than 200 applicants for the including some premier city managers in the Even if I were offered a its going to have to be an absolutely perfect situation for me to go he The city has seen much progress during the past including substantial street downtown and an increase in effectiveness of the police and fire How many communities today can say the tax rate is exactly what ft was four years and yet have improved dramatically Not But New Braunfels and Im very proud of that Grohman But still much remains to be Major reconstruction of several main thoroughfares is and a second municipal golf course is an economic he improvements to the highway infra structure and the municipal airport should be Another longterm goal he plans to pursue is the economy away from water oriented When I look at the I look at being whether it be tomorrow or 10 years from he I want to see the community grow and pros and I want to see the residents the community prosper and get better services every hopefully for thQ same or less dated knowing about the resumes before reading it in the My persona feelings on this is that Im never going to keep be it a city manager or from possibly improving themselves or
