1 cent According to the Alexander City Outlook a daily newspaper in Alexander City Alabama a resi dent there recently received a bill in the mail from the Internal Rev enue Service IRS in the amount of one cent The resident Patricia Winslett said that it cost her 75 cents to purchase the money order of one cent which she mailed back to the IRS and also paid 29 cents for the stamp on the envelope bringing the cost of the one cent bill to more than one dollar An IRS public affairs spokesman said thewhole thing was a mistake and confirmed tfiat it cost much more to process the bill Naturally there was some type of error because we do have a cut off and it is a dollar either way If you have a refund for less than a dollar you have to write us If you owe less than a dollar you dont have to pay it Obviously it took much much more than the one cent to process the bill But if the taxpayer should comply it will take even more to process it It had to be a Winsletts husband advised her to send in the bill citing possible interest accumulation if she did not i was just glad it wasnt for a iot Mrs Winselttsaid Imagine my shock when 1 saw it was for one penny I couldnt believe Canyon Lake

local businesses boost By TECLO Staff Writer A Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce official said Wednes day that putting a visitors center on Interstate 35 would ultimately bring more business into New Braunfels The visitors center has been pro posed to be built somewhere along I 35 in order for the city to gain more visibility The main goal is to catch north and southbound traffic and capture said Jim Scheele director of the chambers convention and visitors bureau Scheele said by attracting 135 trav elers and making them aware of what New Braunfels has to offer city busi nesses would ultimately profit with increased tourist traffic Sue Hahn chair of the bureaus 1995 budget committee has helped spearhead the effort to make the center a realization She said the idea to have a Visitor center on the interstate was an idea that came up several years ago The committee chair said they have several several sights along 135 as cen but nothing has materialized In its most recent attempt to put down roots the chamber is currently negotiating with the New Braunfels Factory Stores to locate a building on their property Scheele said there had been no def inite response from the corporate man agement to the idea but hopes to get an answer soon as negotiations con tinue The chamber included a allowance in next years budget to fund the center San Marcos visitors center on 135 was built in 1988 and officials there are convinced the location has meant increased tourism by immeasurable amounts It is amazing the amount of people that come in said Jan Hardin of the San Marcos Chamber of Com merce It has kindled interest in the city and a lot of people come back and say it was the initial sell they received that brought them back to San Hardin said the center has averaged

cost effective The study is directed at firm ing the fall 95 schedule that will meet the needs of the community The sur vey will help meet those Ristau said the committee will go before the council at its next meeting for approval of the needs assessment study The Chairman also said that all the committee members will be involved in the study and will volunteer time to ensure the study is completed
