they have been blessed with two The last six sets of twins have been one heifer and one bull However this set included two heifers They say thats real said Lois They say if she has a bull and a heifer then the heifer cant have Arnold attributes the twins to not only the cow but also the bull Arnold said he believes his bull has a tendency to sire twins However Bessie has been his only cow that has had twins It takes the right bull and the right he said Arnold said his bullhas a half brother that has also sired some twins The Bredewaters are residents of New Braunfels and operate their cat tle business on the weekends They have 25 cows on approxi mately 200 acres on a ranch located on FM 1103 in Guadalupe County Arnold said he began ranching in 1970 after he retired from a position at

Bredewater bottom New Edwards board put on hold for now Judicial approval must be gained before legislation goes into effect By JENNIFER ROMPEL and ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writers Members of the newlycreated Edwards Aquifer Authority were expected to hold their first meeting this morning but instead were notified the legislation forming the authority has been suspended According to Comal Countys rep resentative on the Authority Doug Miller Senate Bill 1477 which formed the EAA has been suspended until the Justice Department can deter mine how the legislation will affect the voting rights of people in this area Miller said whenever a group changes from elected positions to appointed positions the changes have to be submitted to the Justice Department for approval This is a result of the Voting Rights Act he said We had that situation with the EAA going from an elected to an appointed he said According to Miller the bill was submitted to the Justice Department in June He said the department recently requested more information be sub mitted After the information is sub mitted the Justice Department will have 60 days to decide if the legislation can stand Miller said another alternative to the appointed board would be the one manone vote method However he said if this method is used Comal Hays and Guadalupe counties will have one representative between them Uvalde Atascosa and Medina counties will have one repre sentative and San Antonio will have nine to 10 representatives That would not be representative of the he said Courts man aging resources have said one man one vote is not a The Edwards Underground Water District met last night according to Miller He said the group decided to stay in place and govern the aquifer since the legislation abolishing them cannot go into effect Miller said the Authority is current ly in a waiting game with the Justice We found out that any entity that you create that has an elected or could in the future have an elected board must go through pre clearance by the Justice Sen Ken Armbrister Member Senate Natural Resources Committee Department and no efforts can be made to influence the decision at this time In past interviews State Sen Ken Armbrister a member of the Senate Natural Resources Committee that drafted the Edwards Aquifer Authori ty legislation explained why the leg islation had been written to allow for appointed rather than elected board members When we were trying to draft the legislation our original intent was to make that board on a local option basis an elected said Arm brister When we were writing the legislation we met with the legislative experts on the Voting Rights Act We found out that any entity that you cre ate that has an elected or could in the future have an elected board must go through preclearance by the Justice Department That generally takes as far as a time line 18 months to two years We were dealing with a deadline of May 31 We didnt have the luxury to have that So what we thought about doing on the first go around was make it appointed and come back in the next session of the legislature either a spe cial or the regular session and pro vide by local option that these people could be elected If we do it that way then only that portion would have to go through preclearance not the entire bill Armbrister said it is still his intent to make the board an elected one per local he said That was everybodys intent from the he said Only because we found out the logistics we were dealing with made that impossible did we Have a problem doing that from the Two
