up in arms over reports By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer Several restaurant owners and managers in the New Braunfels area have recently expressed their concern over the publishing of health reports in the New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Members of the restaurant community say they are concerned not only about the way the inspections are conducted but the fact the results of the inspection are published in the HeraldZeitung Health inspections of the restaurants are conducted by city health inspector Joe Lara The reports including written comments from Lara are then published by the Herald Zeitung Lara said his reports are conducted in a completely objective manner Bill Knight of Langston House said he does not understand why the reports need to be published There is no reason to print it in ihe he said He also said he believes Lara is a little Knight said he could not understand how one of the school districts cafeteria could have a longer list of comments but had a higher score than his restaurant Mark Lauer of The Plaza Diner said he believes the problem is not with the way the inspections are conducted but instead with the publishing of them in the paper I was personally inspected months ago and it was a fair said Lauer My problem is with the Herald publishing them I agree they reports are public record and need to be made I dont have a problem with it being public but those reports cannot be property interpreted by the general he Lauer said the Herald should post results of followup inspections and allow the restaurant owners and manager to rebut or explain what was found Thats what is angering them The paper we advertise in is publishing negative he said June Pace owner of The Loft Tearoom said she has a problem with both the manner of the inspections and having them published in the newspaper Pace said she was dissatisfied with her inspection for several reasons According to Pace she was cited for having a light bulb off in a kitchen in the basement She said kitchen is only used to wash dishes and that the light in question was recessed and was not needed Pace said she had talked to Lara when her restaurant was opened and he had discussed several other items with her She claims he then cited her for these items during her inspection Pace said publishing the reports in the paper is a problem because the public does not know how to interpret them and will get the wrong idea Lara agreed that the reports may be difficult to interpret He said on a point scale a lot of small items can add up although the items may not be critical Some articles may not be critical but the onepointers do add he said In addition to information given at the reg ular inspection a letter containing an expla nation of each deficiency is sent to each restaurant said Lara It the letter goes over what everything said Lara Lara said when conducting inspections he tries to comply with Texas interpretation of how the rules should be applied He said restaurant owners may interpret them differ ently My interpretation may be different as what they feel may be he said I try to comply with the states We try to work with the situation and meet the interpretive he said I wouldnt classify myself as he said There are instances when its not going to be black and Members of the Texas Restaurant Associ ation in New Braunfels will have an emer gency meeting on Sept 13 to discuss the inspections and the publishing of the reports Every newspaper Ive been associated with published restaurant said Her aldZeitung Managing Editor Mark Lyon Its
