Page 2A    herald-Zei ting, New Braunfels Texas Sunday, November 3, 1991 “ Taxes_ Weather Hard to be “Hummel” Continued from Page 1A state officials against continuing to so classify the sprawling and growing district. “I’ve been all over this county and I can’t see that the few industries that we have can classify us as rich,” Rogers said. “I believe this is terribly wrong, and I’ve said this publicly and I’ll say it again until we get the state — or someone — to allow us to present our cade to those people who control that formula. “We regret this and feel like the state has done us a great injustice, number one, by placing us in a category with the state’s richest 45 school districts, and we think that’s totally inaccurate,” he said. “And of course the Robin Hood plan — there were other ways to help out the schools that needed the help rather than take it away from those who, as in our case, were struggling in the first place,” he said. Funding_ Continued from Page IA “I think we’ll see a change in the funding, I just don’t think this plan can go very long — it’s a stopgap,” Sims said. “I do think Mr. Meno (Education Commissioner) is going to be positive. I think this man has an idea about how we might go and make things work better.” Sims and Kuempel met with taxpayers in October to discuss education funding. “The thing that disappointed me the most was the pessimism," Sims said. “The type of people that you have in that county and in that district — those people are going to have a good school no matter what happens. I’m not happy at all that we had to raise taxes. I’m not happy with the way those funding districts arc set up. I’m happy that those Higher tax bills and the anticipated lower collection rate may force the district to make further spending cuts, Rogers said. Also, the increased tax rate may discourage businesses and homeowners from moving to the area. “That might slow our growth pattern, but that’s not a good way to solve it,” he said. County Commissioner Neil Craig-mile said that state Sen. Bill Sims and state Rep. Edmund Kuempel, during a recent local forum on state education funding, essentially said legislators implemented the CED-based equalization plan only to avoid more drastic court-ordered measures. “When you boil it all down, basically what both of them say is it’s nobody’s fault and there’s nothing they can do about it,” Craigmile said. “That’s a sad situation when the whole Legislature is looking at it from that point of view.” types of people are there and they can manage it. I hated to hear them say ‘well, there’s going to be just core curriculum next year because of there’s just no money’ — that’s not going to happen.” Comal ISD has been classed as a property-rich school district according to the State’s new funding formula, causing the loss of $ 1.9 million in state subsidies to the district. “I don’t think there’s any question that we will be looking at education funding again,” Kuempel said. “So far I would say this year they are (locked in). (To change it this year) would be hard, especially if we don’t go back into session.” Kuempel added that there weren’t plans at this point to schedule another special session this year.

County Judge Caner Casteel, during the court’s weekly workshop meeting last week, proposed the county not renew its annual membership in the San Marcos-based regional economic development cooperative. “Basically, I just felt like the $1,500 in dues could be better spent here in the county at this point, and the court agreed with mc,” Casteel said after the meeting. The county has no real grievance against the Corridor Council and likely will seriously consider rejoining next year, she said. “I believe in the concept thai we’re a region and that we need to cooperate with each other," Casteel said. “But under the circumstances, given the projects thai they’re considering and the needs that we have, I felt that time-wise and money-wise we arc better off concentrating here." Greg Davenport, Corridor Council executive vice president, in a tele phone interview Friday said Comal County residents receive many benefits through the organization’s efforts to promote the region, bul added that he realized limes arc lough financially for local governments. “I’m optimistic that Comal County will become a member again, and I’m optimistic that there arc a lot of good things that can happen when the local governments and businesses of the region work together,’’ Davenport said. “More than anything else, I look at this as an opportunity to improve our relationship in the future,” he said. During the past legislative session, the Corridor Council, against what he termed long odds, successfully supported water-conservation measures that will phase out wasteful sink and bathroom fixtures. This state law will help reduce the drain on the aquifer and protect the Comal Springs, Davenport said. Last week, the council sponsored two seminars for city and county governments on natural gas as an alternative fuel in anticipation of future state mandates requiring these governmental entities to begin converting vehicle fleets lo clcancr-buming fuels. /ut JBI I    JezvdruTactory More Than 1,000 Rings To Choose From ;
