CROTEAU City Editor Despite an illtimed rain shower that scut tled the and moved the opening ceremony into the big tent Wurstfest got off to a great start Friday with a huge crowd The crowds were even bigger yesterday with mild sunny weather helping the party along Yesterday afternoon just about the time we were about to load our navy on the water it started to rain so the opening ceremony got said Suzanne Herbelin of the Wuretfest Association We were ready The boats were decorated and in the water ready to go Then it started raining Well try it again next But despite the rain shower which ended

check out the special I Wurstfest section inside this newspaper The Comal County Attorney on Friday warned New Braunfels Utilities that it may be in violation of the Texas Open Meetings Act by gathering at monthly din ners without public notice In a letter to NBU Board of Trustees Chairman E C Mornhinweg Nathan Rheinlander said because a quo rum of board members meet the meetings should be made public and should be announced And if the board would like to meet in private it should take the appro priate measures to Accordingly as the officer of the State charged with prosecuting misdemeanor offenses in Comal County I must ask you t8 immediately cease and desist the prac tice of holding the referenced dinner meetings in quorum strength unless such meetings are properly noticed and open to the he said Rheinlander said it was his policy to first warn NBU about the gatherings but should these meetings con tinue I will not hesitate to begin such proceedings as I may consider The trustees have been under scrutiny the last few weeks because of the decadeslong practice which board legal counsel John Dierksen called social Dierksen told the HeraldZeitung last week that busi ness is not discussed at the dinners The trustees some NBU employees and several NBU consultants are normally present at the meetings Rheinlander said it would almost be impossible to meet in that type of session and business not come up The warning kind of establishes a trip he said If they trip the wire we know what to do then Under the circumstances they are playing a very dan gerous Rheinlander said he spoke to Dierksen and the lawyer does understand what the consequences of the situation could be Momhinwcg said he did not know what action the board would take concerning the meetings but they will deliberate the subject at the next meeting at the end of the month I obviously thought they the meetings were legal but we will have to talk it he said It is a legal matter and we will give it over to Mr Dierksen for him to look at Rheinlander also said should he prosecute it might prove embarrassing to board members but could also very well threaten the otherwise excellent bond rating enjoyed by NBU causing an immense disservice to the In August the county attorney also warned New Braunfels Mayor Paul Fraser about skirting the meetings act There were questions about how the mayor had polled city council members by telephone on whether they would support the City Attorney Barry Moore County attorney asks Van Horn to change campaign signs By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Rheinlander says signs imply that Van Horn is incumbent in judges race County Attorney Nathan Rheinlan der sent a letter to District Judge can didate Jeff Van Horn Thursday asking him to alter or change campaign signs in the county that could imply that Van Horn is the incumbent j Van Horn is running against Jack Robispn for the 207th Judicial District seat being vacated by longtime judge Robert Ffeuffer The district includes Comal Hays and Caldwell counties Rheinlander said state election codes state that candidate signs cannot imply the candidate is an incumbent Rhein lander said he checked with the Texas Ethics Commission and that adding the words for or elect to the signs would be satisfactory I got several complaints from dif ferent folks and thought I should pur sue he said Rheinlander also said he himself ran into a similar situation when running for county attorney and learned of the situations regarding his own campaign signs In the letter Rheinlander stated Van Horn should remove or alter the signs by 5 Monday Nov 7 Van Horn however said he believes that there is nothing wrong with his signs and the move by Rheinlander was politically motivated the county attorney has not busi ness ordering people to remove prop he said This is completely out of his juri diction as far as I The candidate said his signs are not and the same signs were usded during the primary and nothing was said then i Rheinlander did not say what course he would pursue should that not be done Either civil or criminal measures are available through either the county or state All
