SOURCES Paries and WUfe National P and Jota Sharp Taxas Oompulat d PuMcAcccurts David Gergen faces one more career challenge ByTOMRAUM Associated Press Writer NBU rate hike on agenda By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer The New Braunfels Utilities Board of Trustees will once again discuss a resolution to the city council for adjust ments to rates for the water and sewer systems The NBU meeting will be held at Thursday in the Board Meet ingRoom of the NBU building at 201 Main Plaza The board has brought the issue to the New Braunfels City Council and it has been discussed in two city council workshops NBU is asking for an approximately 80cent increase in water rates and a increase in sewer rates The water rate increase is based on the amount of water used The more water used the higher the rate increase will be Approval of the resolution request ing the rates was tabled during an ear lier meeting of the board of trustees Mayor Paul Fraser asked that the mat ter be tabled until a workshop could be held with the city council Officials said this rate increase still would not cover the cost of capital improvements in the water and sewer programs Currently revenues from the electric system are used to cover the costs of water and sewer systems In past meetings NBU General Manager Bob Sohn explained that NBU asked the city council to approve an increase in water and sewer rates several years ago He said they received part of the increase they requested but were told to come back later to discuss another increase In other business the board will also discuss the transfer of funds from the NBU to the city This issue was dis cussed by the city council during the past two meetings The council has approved the new plan for the contri bution for one year The plan calls for 10 percent of the utilities adjusted gross income to be paid to the city Thursdays meeting will be the last one for General Manager Bob Sohn Earlier this year Sohn announced his intention to retire WASHINGTON AP David Gergen who has helped four presi dents mold public opinion is getting another chance to refine an image His own But whether he can help Clinton administration foreign policy nom inally his latest and possibly last gov ernment assignment is less certain The 51yearold former commenta tor and news magazine editor is taking on a new job as special assistant to both the president and the secretary of state an impressivesounding title cre ated just for Gergen But it isnt entirely clear what the new portfolio entails And even Gergen concedes 1 dont pretend to be an expert in all the issues of foreign The president and other Gergen defenders depict the post as a place for him to use his special talents and communications skills to help counter criticism of a foreign policy of drift and indecision Gergen offers himself as another And few in the administration would dispute that Secretary of State Warren Christopher and the rest of Clintons foreignpolicy are badly in need of good PR But many see the new job as a park ing place for Gergen for the next six months an endgame a graceful exit as he completes his resume for a post White House job Gergen is known to be weighing various offers in academia and the news media His new job resulted from this weeks White House shakeup that saw budget director Leon Panetta replace Clintons boyhood friend Mack McLarty as chief of staff Planning some outdoor fun this July 4th weekend food Barbecued Beef Sausage Chicken and ail the trimmings By the plate or by the pound 3 July 2 3 Molly Joes North IH 35 at FM 306 McLarty got Gergcns former job title counselor to the president David Gcrgcn is a very talented said Sen Richard Lugar R a senior Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Hes always done a good job in putting the best face on policy But it appears given the short time of his tenure that its something for David to do while hes sort of working his way to the end of the year and on to what his responsibilities are going to It is a common practice for presi dents to create vague but loftysound ing assignments for loyal staffers who are being moved aside For instance when thenPresident George Bush replaced chief of staff Samuel Skinner in 1992 with James A Baker III he said Skinner was leaving to become general chairman of the Republican National It was a finesounding job with essen tially no responsibilities Hired a year ago to help Clinton recover from early presidential trouble Gergen was a key player in Clintons budget and North American Free Trade Agreement battles But the former aide to Republican Presidents Nixon Ford and Reagan had been eclipsed in recent months He ran afoul of Hillary Rodham Clinton on healthcare legislation And he was becoming isolated by his Republican heritage in a Democratic White House in a midterm election year It will be an increasingly partisan said Clinton political strategist Paul Begala He praised Ger gen for taking a very difficult assign ment instead of coasting for his remaining days FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION WHEN SATURDAY JULY 2ND WHERE POST HOME 410 W COLL NEW BRAUNFELS TEXAS 70130 BARBQ FROM NOON TO
