the house at 1521 Daisy Lane Pentecosts class built the house DREAM HOME Project gives students valuable experience and a couple its new house MELANIE GERIK Staff Writer Students in the Building Trades at New Braunfels High School poured the foundation laid the bricks and shingled the roof while building a house throughout the last school year for their classes During the summer Dawn and Alvis Hill were looking for a bigger place When they saw the students house at 1521 Daisy Lane they immediately fell in love with it It just felt like home the minute we walked Dawn Hill said The students showed off their work and the Hills showed off their new home Friday at an open house The students were part of a two year vocationaltechnical program designed to give students realworld experience directly transferable to the work force said Daniel Pente cost department head of Vocational Building Trades of the Career and Technology Division Im out there just like any other pushing fuss Pentecost said Pentecost said the entire New Braunfels High School Career Tech nology Division is designed to pre pare the students for life after high school either for work or for col We dont BS Pentecost said I dont know of a single voca tional teacher down there that fills these guys with Pentecost said the house cost to construct and the Hills bought it for The next house on which con struction begins Monday has a pre liminary budget of Pentecost said This year instead of going to an architect to draw plans for the house Chris Collins a senior will be designing it Pentecost started with New Braun fels High School in 1994 taking the position from Phillip Cobb Pente cost said the toughest challenge that faced the class was the switch to his style of teaching from Cobb who started the program more than 30 years ago But Robert Garcia a sophomore who studied under both Cobb and Pentecost said he had no problems switching over to Pentecost He makes it even easier to said Garcia who is now out of the vocational program and is taking the regular academic classes He added that Cobb would throw the students out on the construction siteBhdrhake them learn by trialand error whereas Pentecost demon strates the techniques in class before the students have to start work Afternoon and morning classes split the day working on the house averaging about three hours of work per shift With the exception of a few minor details such as the mantle above the fireplace construction of the house was complete on July 26 The Hills moved in the next day The work was primarily done by students but with help from local businesses and individuals includ ing plumbing and air conditioning subcontractors some of whom donat ed their services and materials to build the house The only reason this works is community Pentecost said The Hills youth and college direc tors for Life Christian Center said they chose the house because they wanted a house big enough for church functions But Dawn Hill added that she was touched by the work the students put into it Since we work with teenagers that made it special to she said Plan could save youth center at Canyon Lake BY DAVID DE KUNDER Staff writer Supporters of a Canyon Lake Youth Community Recreation Center came up with a plan last night they hope will allow them to build the center where they had planned They will approach the Comal County Commissioners Court with a separate lease to build the center on a proposed county park leased on feder al land The county wants to build a park on land owned by the Army Corps of Engineers near Canyon Dam The Corps of Engineers would lease the land to the county in order for the park to become a reality Project KISS Kids In Safe Sur roundings will have to go to the coun ty with a separate lease of its own to convince the county and Corps of Engineers officials that they will main tain and fund the facility so that both the county and federal governments will not have to assume any responsi bility for it I have a very good feeling this plan will Army Corps of Engi neers Resident Manager Jerry Brite said I feel at this time and with this method this is the best way to do The Project KISS board met with County Judge Carter Casteel State Representative Edmund Kuempel Brite and citizens to discuss the future of the project which is entering its third year The meeting was called because officials from the Army Corps of Engineers in Fort Worth have expressed concerns over the past year that building the facility on govern ment land would make them liable for it Already the county has applied for a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to build the park County Engineer Tom Hornseth said Homseth who is chairman of the County Parks Advisory Board said the county approached the state for the I have a very good feeling this plan will Brite Army Corps of Engineers grant last September and that the coun ty should receive word from the state in a few days on whether or not it will receive the grant Hornseth said the grant stipulates that the park be used for outdoor recreational facilities such as baseball fields soccer fields walk trails and restrooms The state grant excludes indoor facilities such as a rec center Homseth said the county will build the county park with or without the recreation facility Hornseth said that supporters of Pro ject KISS should come to the Parks Advisory Board and present a four year plan on how they would main tain and fund the facility on a sub lease or interlocal agreement The board would then look at the proposal and submit it to commissioners court if it finds it acceptable The commis sioners court would have to approve it and then send the separate lease for the rec center to Army Corps of Engi jneers for its approval We will have to go to the county and convince them that the rec center will not be a financial burden on Project KISS member Doug Dalglish said Dalglish who is the pastor of Canyon Lake Presbyterian Church said that the financial support to main tain the facility would come from the community corporations and user fees at the facility Project KISS which began in 1993 has raised dollars for the facility Dalglish said Pro ject KISS wants to start building the facility at the end of 1996 the county approached the state tor the New county office can get results if junked cars trash your neighborhood Bv DEMISE DZIUK clean the area but needs more time the By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer The county has finally put a pro gram in motion that is aimed at clean ing up the county by getting rid of public nuisances which can endanger the health safety and welfare of coun ty residents County Attorney Nathan Rheinlan der said the increased urbanization of what had previously been rural areas created several problems in the area of public nuisance and safety In July 1994 the Comal County Commis sioners Court passed regulations requir ing the removal of junk vehicles Since May an attorney a paralegal and an environmental officer have been hired for the Environmental Enforce ment Section Rheinlander said this office is responsible for investigating complaints about junk vehicles and illegal dumping Weve been very careful to make sure we understand the statutes involved and the attorney and the County vows to clean up site on Watson Lane The Environmental Enforcement Section has been staffed for about three raontos and it may not be much longer before county residents begin to see results The county is already trying to get several sites cleaned up David Young county environmental offi cer said one site in particular has been present sinfce 1984 and nothing has been done He said he is now ready to file the complaint Then it is just a matter of time before it gets cleaned Another neighborhood may also soon see the benefits from the Envi ronmental Enforcement Section A group of homeowners were present at Thursdays Commissioners Court meeting to complain about a loca tion on Watson Lane East Jane Warmke spokesperson for the group told the court there was concern over the lot which she said appears to simply be a dumping ground She said it is not a landfill and the debris appears to be just dropped on the ground Michelle Meyers the environ mental enforcement attorney said the decision had already been made not to issue another permit to the operator The next big hurdle after hes not permitted is to clean that said County Judge Carter Casteel We want it gone even if have to go out there and do it myself Itll just make my property values go said Warmke officer have gone through extensive he said Michelle Meyers the attorney for Environmental Enforcement said there have already been more than 70 com plaints about junk vehicles David Young the environmental officer investigates each complaint the office receives to see if a violation has occurred He said the site must pose a hazard health or pre sent a nuisance and not just be unat tractive An untidy yard with leaves and tall grass is not a said Young If a violation is found the Comal County Office of Environmental Health with the help of the county attorneys office will file a complaint with the Justice of the Peace The own er will then have 10 days to either clean the area or request a hearing However if the owner does intend to clean the area but needs more time the deadline can be extended If no action is taken a hearing is still required If so ordered at the hearing the county can clean the area and charge all expenses to the property owner If we have to go in and clean it up it is still going to cost the county but there are some procedures that will recover some of the said Mey ers Rheinlander said the process may actually take even longer He said that a vehicle with a current license plate or inspection sticker must remain in the same location continu ously for 45 days before it can be con sidered a junk vehicle Then the rest of the process begins If this seems like a long time you have to remember this involves going on private property and removing items without he said Individuals wanting to file a com plaint can call the Environmental Health office at 6082094 or 6082095 t For subscription or advertising information call the HeraldZeitung at 6259 f 44
