what company officials call a simple reduction in labor force Sunbelt Asphalt formerly Parker Lafarge is now part of the Cemex company The Mexican cement giant purchased the asphalt firm earlier this month in a deal worth million which included the neighboring cement plant and four storage sights Plant Manager John Bolle said he could not confirm the number of employees let go by Sunbelt but he said there was a downsizing of work force at his plant The reduction in work force came about because of our reorganization and we did not feel we needed the amount of employees that Parker Lafarge Bolle said One laid off employee who spoke only under the condition of anonymity said there were between 3235 employ ees let go Another former employee Richard Hammond said he was let go without prior notice about two weeks ago along with several others but Hammond said he has no ill feeling toward Sunbelt I was let go as were others and I was treated fair in regard to he said Hammond had worked for Parkcr Lafarge for some 25 years Bolle did not say whether there would be any more layoffs Sunbelt Asphalt currently employs 40 Bolle said The Sunbelt Asphalt plant and the Sunbelt Cement plant

Pontlac Grand Prix HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Speeders make residents angry Residents say neighborhood is dangerous TECLO Staff Writer Angry residents of North west New Braunfels say that hurried hasty dri vers are making their neighborhood a dangerous place to live Homeowners living along Freder icksburg Moonglow and Rosemary streets have voiced their concerns to the New Braunfels City Council at September meetings The residents said that drivers on Fredericksburg on going so fast that residents will not let their children vis it their friends across the street because it is just too dangerous for the kids to cross They cited blind spots a disregard ed speed limit and New Braunfels School traffic flow as primary contributors making the street haz ardous At the city council meetings they have called for New Braunfels Police to take action and for the council to develop a plan to relieve the heavy traffic flow However Police Chief Dick Headen said his department is doing all it can to stop They have a legitimate complaint but were up Headen said We have done all we can do with the resources we Headen said the department has four officers that focus on 3035 speeding hot spots in New Braunfels He said the vehicles used by the officers arc equipped with mobile radar so they do not have to stand on the street and point a radar gun at vehicles He said the department attempts to monitor each area It sounds idealistic for us to assign an officer to one spot but that is not Headen said There are cer tain rules and regulations the courts give us that we have to he said Technically I could issue a ticket to someone who is going one mile over the speed limit but usually the court will throw that out because its not fail But that is not our policy its what the courts give Headen also stressed that the depart ment did not work on a ticket quota system and officers arc not paid by the amount of citations they issue William KoJodxic Jived on Kentucky since 1955 suggested that the city make Ohio a through street over Panther Creek to relieve traffic on Fredericksburg He said the newly cn ated Transportation and Traffic Advi sory Board should meet as soon as possible to discuss options for the area Mayor Paul Frascr said he hopes the who are complaining are the ones that apply to be named to the board He said the board will work more efficiently with neighborhood residents on the board The council can not keep acting as a judicative he said Fraser also said citizens must be willing to burden the cost of construc tion and street projects The Bible Tells Me So NBCA students learn subjects with Biblical twist Editors note The following is a another installment of a continuing series called Class of the Week This weekScott

students Andrew Couch was a public school student before coming to the Christian Academy last year In the sixth grade in public school they told us we wouldnt learn about Christianity but they didnt mind teaching us about other he said The students said they appreciate the religious context of their educa tion There is a lot of emphasis on reli gion and the Bible especially in this and we also have a Bible Study said student Stacy Smith It is really important to me to have a religious background at a school like this I like The New Braunfels Christian Academy has 273 students from Pre K to grade 8 The largest class has just 21 stu dents another advantage in the eyes of the students Since classes are smaller there is a whole lot more attention from teachers to individual said Sarah Rogers Patrick Pope said smaller classes mean the students get closer and do not divide into social cliques like HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DAR NALL Scott TJernagel teaches history to students at
