enforcement By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Retailers miss Cowboys presence in the Super Bowl By ROGER CROTEAU City Editor Super Bowl Sunday means super big busi ness for many area retailers but some expect today to be a little less busy than the last couple of years when business got an added boost because the Cowboys were in the big game Over the past few years weve been very busy on Super Bowl Sunday especially the last two years with the said Gary Smith owner of Landa Station which recent ly installed a new bigscreen television But this year 1 detect some apathy among my patrons Everybody had their expectations riding pretty high on the Cowboys making it a third time It will be a good Sunday but everybody was a little shellshocked Everybody believed right up until the end that the Cowboys would be in Smith said At Wuests on Landa Street Manager James Beuche said Friday he had already noticed a lot of party items dips beer sand wich fixings and such had been moving He said he does not think the absence of the Cowboys from the Super Bowl will hurt busi ness He said everyone will still watch the game and I think theyll still enjoy it They will make a party out of it pay a little less attention to the game and a little more to the party The stress is gone without the Cow Over at the Watering Hall Saloon on Old McQueeney Road owner Robert H Saulle said the 12footscreen television and 26 other sets in the saloon will all be tuned to the big game He expects a crowd of at least 300 people and was quick to point out that there will be specials on Philly cheescsteak sand wiches burgers and pork chops The last two years we were packed I dont know if our crowd will be down this year I dont think it will he said Lisa Potapa manager at the Subway sand wich shop said she took five or six orders for party trays by Friday 1 dont remember how that compares to last year It seems like it has been less busy than we thought we would be We thought wed have more orders by now than we do she said The biggest losers from the Cowboys ear ly exit from the playoffs are stores that sell items with Cowboy or Super Bowl logos on them like the Rawlings Snorting Goods store at the outlet mall Manager Kim Shepler said sales have already suffered 1 wish the Cow boys were there It would help sales a she said Today we arc selling about a day in NFL stuff When the Cowboys were still in it we were selling 150 to a day in Cow boy stuff We have been ordering a little bit of 49er stuff Charger stuff just doesntgo around here Whoever wins well get some of their stuff but its not like if the Cowboys were Law enforcement officials stress latenight traffic has caused much concern in Comal County So much so that county commissioners will conduct a 1 hearing Thurs day at the county courthouse to discuss a proposal to curtail hours for alcohol sales at bars in the county County Judge Carter Casteel said the hearing was initiated in response to law enforcement concerns Members of agen cies such as the Sheriffs Department and Department of Public Safety said latenight traffic is a major concern especially those wjjp have already been drinking some where else Sheriff Jack Bremer said persons drive to Comal County bars from Hays and Guadalupe Counties and New Braunfels where the time limit is midnight 1 on Saturdays He said they do this in order to have one more hour for drink ing My main concern is the safety of people of this he said Bremer did not say there had been an increase in distur bance calls at the county bars Instead he cited latenight traf fic as the major concern DPS officials have also voiced concern Statistics compiled by DPS break down accidents according to DW1 Fatalities Injuries and other accidents In 1994 142 DWI arrests were recorded on roads outside city limits although these were spread throughout the county Of the 12 fatalities recorded four were alchohol related Still it is hard to draw direct comparisions to latenight dri ving and accidents through the statistics Most accidents on county roads occur at intersections during the morning and evening rush hours and at the construction areas on Interstate 35 In addition traffic accidents in the county have increased each year as the countys population has grown It would be difficult to get official statistics just for that period of said Bremer of the latenight hours Rather Bremer said he relies on the reports gathered by deputies and the general amount of traffic or related calls seen by his office Bar owners in the county say traffic will not decrease but rather shift to the Interstate Some say people will not stay in the county at all but decide to drink or go out in either Austin or San Antonio thereby increasing the danger on 1 35 jSome also say many people get off work late at night and me to have a drink However Bremer claims this a limited number of people Local history comes alive tomorrow By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Area youngsters can step back
