property owners say efforts are working Survey shows law enforcement efforts making a difference By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer HeraldZeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNALL Landon Holden goes for a wild ride at Canyon Lake Saturday SUNSHINE Kros A week in the Hill Country is just what the doctor ordered for these youngsters By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Several children have traded in the constant reminders of their illness such as long hospi tal stays and painful treat ments for a week of fun and adventure in Central Texas These children are cancer patients However this past week they were children looking for fun without the reminders of their disease More than 30 children selected from hospitals in Chicago New Orleans Denver San Diego Miami Lubbock and Houston were in Cen tral Texas this week doing things many of them thought they would never do These children were given the opportunity through the efforts of J Bailey better known as Sergeant Rizzo in n v and Carlos Villamizar enjoy a day on Minsnine Kids Canyon Lake Sunshine Kids is a national non profit volunteer organization based in Houston The foundations mission is to pro vide positive activities and to strive to alle viate the emotional pain for children with cancer The foundation offers a variety of sports and cultural events free of charge to children receiving cancer treatment in hos pitals The Sunshine Kids take trips to various locations some of which include New Orleans Aspen and Hawaii The founda tion contacts the hospitals that will be includ ed in the trip and the hospital then chooses four patients they feel are in need of a morale boost or a chance to get away said Shannon Lillis with the Sunshine Kids The City of San Marcos and Southwest Texas Stale University hosted the event for the fourth consecutive year said Mark Hen dricks Assistant Director of Media Rela tions for SWT While in the area the kids visited Wonder World went tubing on the San Marcos Riv er had a bowling and volleyball tournament visited liesta Texas toured the capitol met Governor Bush went to Schlilterbahn went river rafting on the Guadalupe River went camping and visited the Texas Yacht Club Today is the last day of their trip Hendricks said the busy schedule leaves Ihe children feeling a lot more tired when they leave than when they arrived Theyve got a lot of spirit and enthusiasm Tubers on the Guadalupe River are a better behaved bunch this year according to a new survey The Water Oriented Recreation District sent a sur vey to 42 people who attended a previous WORD meeting The survey asked their opinions on law enforcement efforts and river conditions over the Memorial Day Weekend Half of the surveys were returned and the general consensus is that this year was an improvement from last year Its just to know for sure if were on the right track and I hink this survey says we said WORD Manager Jim Inman Of those responding to the survey 55 percenl said the overall tourist behavior was belter this year When asked specifically about littering trespassing and glass and polystyrene on the river SO to 90 percent still said it was better this year The behavior was definitely improved The police were very reasonable and did a good job Many peo ple were cooperative with litter many were said a citizen at River Road and the first crossing 1 see overall improvement clue lo proactive and on site reactions We need to keep moving commented a below the fourth crossing However not everyone agreed the amount of lit tering had improved Litter was worse Tell your Board until they enact a complete ban on all disposable items things can only get commented a resident from the Gruene River subdivision The thing that bothers me the most is the continu ous disrespect people and not just tourists have for the quality of the water and the said Coun ty Jumbo Lvans He said people needed to start thinking of the roads and rivers as their house and ask themselves if they would litter in their own house It depends on a change of attitude he said Everyone responding lo the survey said the presence of law enforcement was positive Everyone said the response time was either good or satisfactory and none said it needed improving They also said the Courtesy Iutrol which are people trained in white water rafting and first aid was a positive presence Kudos for Ihe Sheriff and the law enforcement personnel They did a great job over the Memorial Day I loliday commented a resident from the Ria cla Subdivision One issue not addressed in the survey but men tioned in Ihe comment section was the problem with foul language More aggressive tourists F is the said a resident below the third crossing We still heard very bad language on the a resident below the fourth crossing also said Overall the surveys indicated residents saw an improvement but also realized more needs to be done Overall we think WORD has helped but still there is much to do and many things that still could be commented a resident from the Tube Loop area County Commissioner Morris Moe Schwab said he feels the conditions have been improving for the last couple of years but this year is the most positive so far It has been a little better each year and this year was bigger and better than last year But I feel theres still room for he said Inman said he realizes the work is not done How ever the improvements tell WORD and law enforce ment ilia they are moving in the right direction and making progress Adjustments can now be made to fur ther the improvements he said Both commissioners said law enforcement played a big role in the improvements Inman said the improvements were due to the Lw enforcement but all the other individuals who work to improve condi tions also had an effect on the conditions which include business owners residents and WORD mem bers I think this is just a culmination of a whole lot of people working together to make things he said The WORD law enforcement committee decides whether another survey will be conducted However Inman said he would like to send one out with the tax es so that every individual and business would receive one Thats the only way we can know if what were doing is he said Bingo games bring money to county but New Braunfels missed the boat When they leave theyre a lot more tied but theyve still got spirit and their enthusiasm is just as contagious as when they got Shannon Lillia to begin with When they leave theyre a lot more tired but theyve still got spirit and their enthusiasm is just as contagious as when they got said Hendricks The group was alone on their adventures Hollywood actor Bailey who starred in and Police Academy has traveled with the kids Bailey is also the national spokesman for the Sunshine Kids Lillis said the children come back from the trip with a visible change in attitude and all of ihem come back looking a lot happier Its a great morale boost They get a chance to get away It just uplifts them and changes their whole said Lillis Individuals organizations or corporations may become a Sunshine Kids Pardner by underwriting the expenses of one of the chil dren by sending a S300 taxdeductible check made payable to The Sunshine Kids Foun dation to Fred March Theatre Arts Depart ment Southwest Texas State University Drive San Marcos TX 78666 By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Comal County Government got an cut from county Bin go winnings the first three months of 1995 The city of New Braunlels could have had half of those fees every three months for quite a few years but it missed the leg islative boat lexas law says live percenl of Bingo winnings must be paid to state and local government in the form of prize fees Texas Lottery Commission Chief of Media Rela tions Keith lilkins said Since September 93 theres no real Bingo he said At that time there was a gross receipts tax and the lawmakers put in place a live percent See related story on Page 2A I lalf of the fee goes to the state Llkins said The other half percenl goes to local govern ment The Bingo feecheck goes into the general Comal County Treasurer Bart Bartholomew said But theres a catch said Comal County gets

government to get the prize fees Llkins said The city of New Braunfels doesnt receive any Bingo fees from the slate Director of Finance Sharon Day said New Braunfels could be splitting the percenl evenly with the county if it had held a referendum Llkins said The deadline to hold a Bingo referendum was Jan I 1993 1lkins said The city could still vote to legalize Bingo but it would be loo lale to get prize fees he said New Braunfels city government would welcome Bingo fee money Day and City Manager Mike Shands said Although in the greater scheme of things Ihis would not be a huge amount of money even the quarterly figure taken on a yearly basis could pay for additional person Shands said Factory Stores merger creates retail giant Factory Stores of America owner of the New Braunfels
