Walnut Street and the Interstate Highway 35 service road near Wal Mart and 18 accidents occurred in the inter section of South Seguin Street and the Interstate Highway 35 service road Lt John Wommack who oversees the patrol division of the New Braunfels Police Depart ment said he was not surprised these inter sections came out on the top of the list for accidents in New Braunfels HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH The most dangerous Intersection In New Braunfels last year was Walnut 135 intersection and should hesitate onehalf a sec ond to make sure nobody is running a red light said Wommack The corner of Walnut San Antonio Is often an acci dent scene See with local TxDOT engineer Page 1B See Growth PagelB They are all extremely high traffic he said There are no specific dangers at these intersections but there is a high volume of Wommack said many of the accidents occur ring in these intersections are caused by people missing red lights or making unprotected left rums In order to avoid accidents drivers should be aware they are approaching a heavily traveled Turnout for early voting low By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer Early voting turnout for the April 12 runoff See county precinct tion was low according polling place election to Comal County Clerk judges for Tuesdays JoyStreater runoff election Page 9A As of 4 Friday 381 people voted early in the runoff election Streater said 224 people voted early in person in the Democra tic election and 63 voted by mailin ballot Ninetyfour people voted in the Republican runoff No Republican ballots have been received through the mail as of Friday Turnout has been low on the Republican side because there was nobody locally on the ballot When that hap pens people seem to take a passive attitude The Democ rats are turning out because of the district judges said Streater The only local race being decided in the runoff is for the nomination for 207th DistricTCourt Judge Running in that race are New Braunfels resident Nile Reidel and Dripping Springs resident Jeff Van Archer Early voting began Monday and continued until Fri day Election day is Tuesday Polling places and election judges have been chosen Teamsters strike poses little threat to New Braunfels By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer The recent strike by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters should have and has had little effect on the New Braunfels area according to officials with the San Antonio chapter of the union It will have very little effect on the average person in New Braunfels Texas said Preston Ketchum president of Teamsters Local Union No 657 in San Ketchum said the little effect on the average person in New Braunfels Preston Ketchum President Teamsters Local Union No 657 Some accidents in these intersections cannot be prevented according to Wommack He said the intersections are welldesigned and have the best traffic controls developed However Wommack said some accidents on the Interstate Highway 35 service roads may be avoided after the roads are made oneway on each side instead of twoway as they are now We wont have the double flow of traffic and some of the left turns will be eliminated because people wont be cutting across a lane of traffic to he said Judging by personal experience Wommack said most of the people involved in accidents are between the ages of 16 to 24 and most accidents occur near the drivers home affected is WalMart However he said the strike should be over soon The main issue is over working condi tions and job he said The compa nies want to implement parttime labor at per hour A regular employee gets Ketchum said 10 companies have signed a tentative agreement A meeting was scheduled for Saturday afternoon concerning those agreements The strike targets 22 trucking companies according to an article printed in the Austin AmericanStates man The article states that the group decided not to picket one of the companies Carolina Freight Carrier Corporation because it has agreed to go along with any agreement The strike began Wednesday and involves Teamsters across the United States Ketchum said the San Antonio Chapter has gotten 100 percent participa tion from its members Only 15 to 20 people who live or work in New Braunfels are pan of the union said Ketchum Officials have said that the average consumer should feel little impact since companies involved transport raw materials and equipment rather than finished products Food delivery is not expected to be Affected For subscription news or advertising information call 6259144 Metro 6060846
