Officers arrested a 55 yearold male parolee at a local apartment com plex and charged him with indecent exposure with a child Police took into custody earlier this week Christopher Richard Daniel of Pipe Creek Texas and booked him into Comal County Jail where he is being held on bond Residents alerted police of the man after he was seen roaming around the Bavarian Manor Apartments Gary Ward secretary of the apartments res idents council said he was the first to confront the man He said he startled the man who was watching children from a dark area Ward said the man was undressed when he first went up him Ward said he had seen the man at the apart ment complex a few months before My first reaction was after realizing he was the same guy that gave me this lie about how he was looking for his dog first thing I wanted to do was knock the crap out of Ward said The man did not make any real efforts to leave and when he did try to wander away Ward said he and the complex manager kept Daniel around until they could persuade him to go into the managers office Ward said the police were called shortly after the man entered the office Police Detective Michael Osbornc said Daniel was on parole from Harris County Osbome could not release information on what Daniels prior convictions may have been Osbome said indecency with a child was a third degree state felony The two girls Daniel was charged indecency with were not harmed according to Ward and the police With the way our complex is set up it gives the residents a false sense of Ward said He said the closeness of the complex and the smalltown attitude may fool residents into thinking they do not have to watch their chil dren Ward said the council plans to have a ing with residents to discuss what it can do to make the complex more aware Accidents DWIs down fronts previous years police say Wurstfest crowds including more families fewer problems By TECLO J GARCIA Staff Writer New Braunfels Police say that while Wurst

who was parking cars at the Wurstfest for the Lions Club said he believes the message that drinking and driving do not mix has finally started to sink in It is not like it used to said who retired here in 1978 There is a lot more security here so now it 9Wurstfest has been very good very Even on College Night the last few years traffic has been much calmer he said When they The Wurstfest Association cut out the Kiss Me Im German buttons which led to a lot of instant fights and when they got rid of the buckets of beer because a lot of minors were drinking then it began to settle he said Many long time residents say that Wursfest traffic used to be much worse and that the fes tival has calmed down considerably One local resident said Wurstfest is a shad ow of its former but added

historic places Recent moves by the city of San Antonio to limit construction over the Edwards Aquifer are a good step says one local observer Doug Miller water negotiator for New Braunfels Utilities and Comal County said recent recommendations by a Water Quality Tasl would help protect water quality for the aquiit and its users I think its great because we need to preserve not only quantity but said Miller Recommendations which must be approved by the San Antonio City Council would limit impervious cover buildings and pavement to percentages as low as 10 percent in some areas and forbid the sealing of sinkholes and caves among a list of proposals In Millerfs opinion developers suffered a defeat when the proposal to build an Apple white Reservoir failed this summer that would have provided a source for disposing waste water Applewhite failed but a lot of people were educated about the said Miller the developers kind of squashed it construction While the proposals would affect building over the aquifer they say nothing of pumping from it Miller cited other reasons for the amount of action concerning the aquifer in recent months The next session of the State Legislature will feature the Edwards Aquifer as a major issue including Senate Bill 1477 which is currently in limbo Also the federal judge who favored pumping limits on aquifer has given a 60day deadline to a water panel NBU General Manager Paula DiFonzo sits on the panel of various waterrelated entities which will meet in San Marcos next Friday and New Braunfels Nov 22 at the Holiday Inn The panel is exploring items related to the aquifer and using alternative water sources Miller indicated that the monitor appointed by the federal judge would ask for an extension of the 60day limit For news advertising or
