for an awful lot of bankers over the last 38 Cone said Its alums would include many bank pres idents in the The course con sists of three inten sive twoweek sessions on cam pus spread over a twoyear period It is a demanding course Cone said It is not something one enters into Gravis Gravis class started out with about 115 students Only 86 finished the course he said Bankers are picked to enroll

twoweek sessions start at in the morning and dont end until 9 at night Cone said About two thirds of the instruction comes from people currently working as banking officials The rest comes from consul tants or college professors Between the intensive sessions stu dents solve complex written case prob lems They must submit a thesis at the end of their course work Her thesis has to meet the same tests as far as writing and method that any college thesis would Cone said Programs like the Southwestern Graduate School of Banking give busi ness a shot in the arm Cone said Its really important that we have people in institutions willing to support continu ing he said It keeps peo ple refreshed and renewed and breathes new life into a Local residents will have several options on how to spend the upcoming holiday But no matter which is cho sen they are all guaranteed to bring out the patriotism and community spirit in everyone One option residents have is to attend the fourth of July

the parade will be followed by a plaza program with speakers from several different cul tures The goal of this year is trying to get the impression of what America means he said Another holiday option is to attend the annual fireworks display The city had feared a sponsor would not be found in time for this years display However HEB Groceries made a cash donation The store is co sponsoring the display with the city Several citizens had made donations ranging from to and the city refunded the money Theres no doubt that the family that donated felt the pinch as much as the family that donated We didnt want them to feel any said City Manager Mike Shands The display will begin at dusk and families are invited to come to Landa and Prince Solms Parks to enjoy a pic nic and enjoy the fireworks display over the lake I remember sitting on the bank when I was a little girl with my moth said City Councilwoman Brenda Freeman Freeman also recommended watch ing the fireworks display along the lake

across the street from the Iselin plant between FM725 and McQueeney Monday night The proposal would change the area from Sin gle Family and Two Family to R3H Multi family High Density District and Ml A Light Industrial The area is already designated by the city as a reinvestment zone said Planning and Zoning Commissioner Ted Alexander We have some very exciting employment bases looking at this he said Alexander had abstained from voting on the zone change in the Planning and Zoning Com mission as Iselin is one of his clients He asked that the city council table the public hearing to avoid any perception of conflict of interest Iselin will hire an independent representative to pre sent the rezoning plan Alexander said I am glad that Ted decided to table it because it did appear to be a conflict of interest on his Dist 2 Councilman C Ray Schoch said Northpark Ridge and McQueeney Road the east entrance to the Heights subdivision is across McQueeney from a corner of the property proposed to be rezoned Rezoning a piece of property doesnt neces sarily affect the property values of adjacent prop erty like the nearby subdivision Comal County Chief Appraiser Lynn Rodgers said Simply rezoning the property would not be the deter mining Rodgers said it would be the ulti mate end If the rezoned property were developed with more light industry such as the Iselin plant or Porter Graphics the impact could be positive Rodgers said because more area people would be in the market for singlefamily homes Its hard to see a negative impact unless it was developed with an improvement to which there was gross social Rodgers said Now when the rezoning process is still in the early stages is when area residents should voice opinions on the proposed zone change Schoch said Who can say what might go into an area thats zoned a certain he said Right now in the decision making time is when they should voice their opinions on either he said The next meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission is July 11 at in the city council chambers In other business Chamber of Commerce Pres ident Tom Purdum unveiled two huge wall maps of Europe donated by German Sesquicentennial visitors He presented them to the Dittlinger Memorial Library where they can be used and enjoyed by all members of the he said One map shows countries and cities the other is a topographical map We will take these maps and display them in our library in the hope that some day we will have a bigger wall on which to display Library Board Chair Lucille Douma said Texans forming new strategy to save Kelly Air Force Base WASHINGTON AP The Texas congres sional delegation is trying to grab a narrow window of opportunity to keep intact Kelly Air Force Base and some jobs But the effort to undo a controversial decision by the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Com mission may amount to little more than a lastditch Hail Mary pass Sens Phil Gramm and Kay Bailey Hutchison joined by San Antonioarea House members and civic leaders want President Clinton to weigh in with the independent commission before its too late The Texans theory is that the commissions final recommendations arent due to the president until Saturday meaning that Clinton has several days to ask the commissioners to reconsider their decision to close Kellys Air Logistics Center and a similar Air Force depot in California Doing so would allow Clinton to sidestep the politically touchy issue of whether to reject the commissions list a move he appears to be weigh ing The president has until July 15 to approve the entire list or remand it to the commission Theoret ically the panel could review all recommendations if the president rejects the list Once you receive the commissions final rec As the president has said before the process is not meant to be White House deputy press secretary Mary Ellen Glynn ommendations the only options available will be to accept or reject the entire the two Republi can senators wrote Clinton Tuesday asking him to direct the Air Force to raise its concerns with the commission At that point a correction will be too White House deputy press secretary Mary Ellen Glynn ruled out any White House contact with the commission As the president has said before the process is not meant to be political and that is the rea son it is formulated in such a way so that he either approves the entire list or rejects the entire she said A commission spokesman said its highly unlike ly the panel would convene again before Saturday These are the final said spokesman John Earnhardt Hey Im taking a bath here Jay Brent Higginbotham seems a little perturbed about getting his pic ture taken as he cools off in his makeshift swimming pool a wheelbar row yesterday afternoon He was in a yard
