However, police officials have not ruled out a possible homicide attempt. New Braunfels Police officers answered an emergency call at 959 Pine Saturday afternoon at approximately 4 p.m. The scene of the shooting was located in a residential area near the Mission Valley Textiles plant. It was there that New Braunfels police officers found Marie Henschell, the victim of a gunshot wound to the upper abdomen. According to one witness, the victim was seen holding on to her side shortly after shots were heard. "I heard a popping sound, then ran out and saw her holding onto her stomach," she said. "There was a lot of blood running down her side.” The victim was found in a brown striped van parked in the driveway of the residence. Herekt-Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Detective B.B.

Boatwright (right) examines evidence gathered at the scene of yesterday's shooting at 951 Pine St. whits Sgt. Clayton (loft) looks on. Police officers found a fully loaded rifle in the van. A second van was parked on the street in front of the house. A rifle empty of ammunition was found in the second van. New Braunfels Police Officers Sgt Clayton, Cpl. Martin Mayer, and Officers Sharon Terrell, Jesse Villarreal and J. Allen responded to the call. Evidence at the scene was too complex and conflicting for officers to draw any immediate conclusions. ‘‘We’ll just have to wait till we sift through all this and process it before we can determine what happened here,” said Cpl. Mayer. ‘‘It’s a possibility it’s a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It’s a possibility it’s an attempted homicide. At this point we just don’t know," said Sgt. Clayton. Detective Sgt. B. B. Boatright arrived to examine the firearms, vehicles and other evidence Marie Henschell was taken by New Braunfels EMS to a field near Frasier Elementary, where she was airlifted by Baptist Airlifc at 4:30 p.m. to Brooke Army Medical Center. At the same time an incoherent man was transported from the scene by New Braunfels Police. According to Boatright, the man was a witness, not a suspect. “There’s a strong possibility that this is a suicide attempt," said Boatright. At press time Marie Henschell was in the operating room at Brooke Army Medical Center, according to Capt O’Day Ifs a can-can! tienvo-^enung pron oy iwunACL uAnrwuL Dlvsr Bornite Bsardslsy emptier her trash after gathering al kinds of debris from tha Comal River Saturday wring tha city’s annual Trashiest cleanup effort.

Specht presents water plan to NBU By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Former Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority General Manager John Specht presented a plan to the New Braunfels Utility board Thursday outlining projected water needs into the year 2040. Specht, hired as a consultant, said NBU should immediately start looking at ways to ensure water is available in the future. He termed the situation “very critical” especially given the possibility another drought should ever occur and the growth predicted for the region “This region is at a point where competition for a water supply is going to be extremely intense,” he said. The Report 2000 said NBU would need 35,000 acre feet of water a year by the year 2040. NBU Assistant General Manager Roger Biggurs said the utility currently uses around 9,000 acre feet. Most of NBU’s water supply comes from three sources, Canyon Lake, the Guadalupe River and wells in the Edwards Aquifer. NBU buys water from the GBRA out of Canyon, and has water rights to the Guadalupe below the dam. Most of the NBU water supply comes from Canyon and the Guadalupe. According to Specht, many entities will be competing for surface water given the heated debate over pumping of the Edwards Aquifer. Canyon Lake's 50,000 acre foot yield was “relatively small" as a reliable water source in the future he said. “We’re on the verge of working out the long-standing Edwards Aquifer problem,” said Specht “It’s only when we hear that answer can we determine what other source you will need.” Finding a secure amount of surface water will be important because either the state or federal government will require pumping limits during dry periods to ensure spring flow. He said historic pumping uses could be cut up to 40 percent during a drought period Bill West, current manager of the GBRA, told the NBU board that a committee formed by a federally-appointed water monitor, Joe Moore, includes West and several members of the parties involved West said the committee would meet by late November or early December to look at alternative water sources for the region. By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Car fire spreads through garage at local residence He said the fire apparently started in the garage when a car had electrical problems. New Braunfels Fire Department personnel were able to confine the fire to the garage area Although other parts of the house suffered smoke damage, most of the damage centered on the vehicle and the garage area Sierra said several firefighters suffered from smoke inhalation but there were no serious injuries New Braunfels firefighters responded to an alarm at 1843 Park Place Friday night at 10:56 p m. Battalion Chief Victor Siena at Fire Station No. I said four fire engines and three other vehicles were dispatched to the site of the blaze. 6-0846) COUNTDOWN: 171 DAYS New Braunfels Sesquicentennial March 21.1845 March 21,1995For news, subscription or advertising information, call 625-9144 (Metro 6> ;
