HAMMETT Staff Writer Visiting judge Bill Bachus this morning dissolved a temporary retrain ing order allowing Comal County bars to stay open until 2 this Saturday night Judge Bachus action which was handed down at approximately this morning He said in reviewing both sides arguments that the plaintiffs would not prevail in a trial situation and there fore ruled against them Both sides a group of county bar owners and the county presented their initial viewpoints Thursday on the issue Order dissolved bars to close at 1 Saturday The judge had to decide whether the temporary restraining order allowing the bars to stay open late should remain until March 17 when a hearing for a permanent injunction is scheduled If bar owners arc granted a perma nent injunction they can remain open from 12 until 2 until a trial decides further The Commissioners Court in Feb ruary voted 50 to move the extended latenight hours for liquor sales back to 12 1 on Saturday nights under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code Lawyers for both sides agreed in the commissioners court right to repeal the hours but disagreed as to who should take away the license to operate at extended hours The real question is can the county declare a stateissued license void said Atanacio Nacho Campos attor ney for the bar owners Most bars were granted renewal of license in licenses arc issued by the Texas Alcoholic Bever age Commission one for regular oper ation and another for extended hours The license is signed by the county judge Owners claim they were granted the license then denied the use at extended hours just two months later without time to plan ahead The only entity that can do that is a state Campos contended The TABC they arc the ones who need to be making the decision that is effecting existing County Attorney Nathan Rhcinlan dcr said there was a difference between legislative and executive authority that the county acted on behalf of authori ty granted by the State Legislature through the Texas Alcoholic Bever age Code and the Commission TABC was merely an executive or administrative arm charged with enforcement and regulation We feel like the law is very he said of the court into the process is not Burden of proof lay with the plain tiffs in this case the owners Both sides agreed there would be an economic impact on the owners however Judge Bachus questioned what authority the TABC would have to change what Commissioners Court did I dont feel like we were given due said Ron Gonzalcs owner of Solms City Limits personally feel if youre going to have a license taken away you should have done something HeraldZeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNALL Driver rescued from overturned cement truck Lett photo New Braunfels emergency personnel rescue Raymond Soils from an overturned
