New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 3, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas GBRA celebrates National Drinking Water Week A proclamation endorsing May 1-7, 1994, as National Drinking Water Week in the Guadalupe River Basin, was adopted by the Board of Directors of the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority (GBRA) at their meeting in Seguin on April 20,1994. Each year, GBRA joins other water suppliers throughout the country in sponsoring activities to promote public awareness of the importance of clean drinking water, and to encourage the conservation and protection of water resources. * The 1994 Drinking Water Week slo gan is “Let it be Second Nature,'* and the official “Blue Thumb” is a reminder to safeguard water resources much the same way that a “green thumb” symbolizes the care we give to plants and the environment. During the week, GBRA will offer opportunities for area residents to “Give Drinking Water a Hand,” including a special $6 fee for total coliform water testing offered by the GBRA Regional Laboratory in Seguin during Drinking Water Week. For more information about the test and how to collect samples, call 210/379-5822. Clarification A portion of a quote may have been attributed to the wrong person in an article on teen drug use which appeared on Page IB of the Sunday Herald-Zeitung. The last sentence of a quote from Canyon High School freshman Gail Gitsho stated that students could be seen smoking cigarettes outside the doors at the rear of the school cafeteria. Gitsho said she did not make that comment, but another girl being interviewed at the same time did. Several students were being interviewed at the same table at the same time. For the record, five other students inside the cafeteria also suggested that students could be seen smoking cigarettes outside behind the cafeteria, and all 13 students interviewed at that location said students sometimes smoke there. Two students were smoking cigarettes there at the time of the interviews. Free legal advice for elderly Symphony to end season with a 'Pop' • The Mid-Texas Symphony will conclude its 16th season with its annual Pops Concert on Sunday May 8 at 4 p.m. in the Civic Center. The New Braunfels Civic Center will be arranged with table seating, and wine, soft drinks and popcorn will be available. Tickets are $9 for adults, $8 for senior citizens and college students, and S3 for students through high school age. They will be available at the doer. State Representative Edmund Kuempel announced recently that telephone legal advice is available for Texans age 60 and older. The Legal Hotline for Older Texans is ajoint project of the Texas Legal Services Center and the American Association of Retired Persons and the Legal Counsel for the Elderly. The group receives support from the Texas Equal Access to Justice Foundation. “This hotline is a valuable tool for Texans age 60 and older since they can receive direction over the phone without charge,” Kuempel said. He added that the hotline provides a number of free preventative law publications that can be mailed to the requesting party. The hotline is located in Austin and the toll-free phone number is (800) 622-2520. Allstate ordered to pay record fine for alleged violations AUSTIN (AP) — State insurance officials say it will no longer be business as usual in regulating the insurance industry. On Monday, the Texas Department of Insurance announced a record $850,000 fine against Allstate Insurance Group and started disciplinary actions against 59 other insurers for alleged discrimination in selling automobile insurance. ‘Today we're beginning the process of ending unfair insurance practices in Texas,” Texas Insurance Commissioner J. Robert Hunter said when announcing the largest fine ever assessed by the state insurance agency. Combined, the 60 companies provide auto coverage to millions of Texans. In agreeing to pay the fine, Allstate OII r BOOKS AVAILABLE WALNUT 6 629-6400 Hi 35 and Walnut Ave denied violating the law. An insurance industry representative speaking on behalf of the 59 other companies denied the insurers did anything wrong. “I know that insurers do not discriminate,” said Jerry Johns, of the Southwestern Insurance Information Service. “We are prohibited by state and federal law from that and to suggest otherwise is without basis.” But Hunter said Allstate knowingly broke the law. Mary Keller, senior associate commissioner, said she believed the alleged violations against the other 59 companies were blatant. Those cases started after a review of the first 75 insurance companies that responded to a Department of Insurance survey of underwriting guidelines. “When you put in writing an underwriting guideline that violates Texas law, it has to be intentional,” Ms. Keller said. She accused some companies of refusing to write policies for people who have a Mexican driver’s license, while writing policies for those who have a license from Canada. The allegations against Allstate included: — Rejecting drivers for insurance in its companies with the lowest rates LM VU Bood 4/19 An. 5/S Somas Usr UAM NEESON SEN KINGSLEY CE NO ISCAPf BAY LIOTTA £ Wh it Famo tm of th Kin »ou ft.VrWJ.V' BB s Om ttH. fan _ Til**    T BADOiws WmSTCTE ILn Mi*it MAS TUSO* £ NIGHTLY TOO SOO SAT..

Gary A. KahKg, who is a candidate for District 4 wants the city council to address the feasiabiMy of towering residential city property taxes. Kahiig stated "A committee should be set up to address the feasibility of raising our city sales tax but lowering our residential city property taxes. It is my understanding a city sales tax would force tourists to pay their fair share. However, I would only consider this if we lowered residential city properly taxes. The City Manager has informed me a 1/2 cent sales tax increase could lower our residential city property taxes.” The decrease would represent towering our current rate of 4ie on a hundred tax rate to I27ac on a hundred, lf we increased our city sales tax Vt cent the city would receive no decrease in revenues. Kahiig went on to say he would donate hit wages received from the city if elected to St. Peter and Paul School and the Senior Citizens Center. He also encourages all residents to exercise their privilege to vote. Election day It May 7 at Fraalar Elamantary School.
