proposals include prospect of elected mayor By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Amendments to the New Braunfels Charter that would change the way New Braunfels votes for its city coun cil representatives and its mayor were presented to the city council for a first reading at councils Monday night meeting The proposedchanges would bring New Braunfels voting practices into line with federal guidelines said Char ter Review Committee chairman David Wallace The amendments contain two major changes and some or technicality type changes The major changes are 1 The city would be divided into six voting districts as equally as possible Two districts would be composed of at least 60 percent minorities one dis trict would be composed of approxi mately percent minority and nonminority and three districts would be composed of nonminorities 2 The mayor would be elected at large by plurality vote New district lines have yet to be drawn Dr David Guinn who advised the committee and reviewed the pro posed amendments recommended that redistricting not occur until the amend ments were voted in by city council said Wallace Wallace believes that the new dis tricts would give better representation to all residents Candidates would be able to run a smaller less expensive campaign It would be possible for more people to he said The changeover from the current system to six districts will be a gradual one said City Attorney Jacqueline Cul lom New districts would be phased in starting with the minority she said The mayorat large by plurality vote would make it more possible for a minority candidate to be elected may or than under the current system In a plurality vote the candidate with the most votes wins the election whether or not that candidate has a majority of the vote New Braunfels has approximately percent Hispanics in the popula tion In a plurality vote with at least three candidates a minority candidate could indeed become mayor if heavily sup ported by Hispanic voters So this is really the best way to go for every said Wallace If new district lines are drawn some current council members may end up in the same district or some dis tricts may be left empty Council mem bers expressed concern about how the transition to new districts would be handled regarding current council members terms More than likely par tial terms and council vacancies are going to have to be dealt said Council member Mary Serold The city attorney is currently researching the ramifications of redis tricting Cullom will produce a legal memo with her recommendations when ready At this point Im not sure how it will impact council she said High amounts of cedar pollen making life miserable for some By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Cedar pollen is back and its assaulting New Braunfels noses with near record strength this year said Frank C Hampel Jr of New Braunfels The pollen count today was particles per cubic meter Lust Friday the count was

injections said Hampel A lot of times you cant tell the difference between a simple allergic reaction and infection until the pollen season is he said Its also hard to distinguish between allergy symptom and a viral illness If symptoms hen pollen is no longer in the air its time to see a doctor A change in mucus from clear to thick and colored is another sign that an infection has set in People who find their lifestyle becoming ham pered by u cedar pollen allergic reaction have sev eral levels of options for fighting the symptoms said Hampel The first level is overthe counter medications antihista miues and then decongcstants if antihistamines alone dont do the trick If a person is missing work missing school due to the allergy its time to consider allergy suid Hampel Treating an allergy with shots is a year round process with shots given periodically through out the year We increase the frequency of the shots when the pollen comes he said The tree which produces the nasty pollen is not really a cedar at all but ash juniper according to offi cials at Landa Park Scientists count the pollen using a collector culled a rotorod U runs one minute out of every ten
