Writer Thanks to the efforts of Precinct Commissioner Morris Moe Schwab and the Coma County Recycling Committee citizens in rural areas of the county will have a chance to recycle their household waste If we recycle our materials they will not go into our Schwab said In my opinion if we recycle enough we will not need another land fill in the The Comal County Rural Recycling Program will

county used for the recycling program The recycling program will operate MondaySaturday at different sites each day Schwab project director for the Comal County Rural Recycling Com mittee said that the idea for a county wide recycling program began when the City of New Braunfels initiated its recycling program last year When the city was working on and began to take bids on their recycling program the judge County Judge Carter Casteel asked us what we could do about Schwab said So in January I went to the Environmen tal Fair meeting in Austin and listened to some informative speakers and pre sentations I ran across a county that had a rural recycling program I visited the county and from that time on we decided to put forth the effort to begin the Sherry Clarkson administrative assistant to commissioners court wrote the grant proposals that enabled the county to get the grants needed to start up the program The county was awarded two grants one from the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission and the other from the Alamo Area Council of Gov ernments Schwab said the two grants made it possible for the county to purchase a truck a trailer and a forklift for the recycling pro gram The trailer will have the capaci ty to hold 10 bins for trash A fiill time employee Billy Bob Weatherly will be the managerdriver of the truck and will go from site to site to collect recycled products Weatherly a for mer Comal County Road Department Employee began his new job yester day Schwab said that Weatherly will earn a year for the position The county has contracted with BFI Waste Systems of San Antonio to rent a stationery trailer for a month Schwab said The stationery trailer will be stationed at the Comal County Road Department on Highway 46 west and will be used to store the recycled prod ucts Once the stationery trailer is full BFI will come and pick it up and sell the recycled products in the San Anto nio area BFI and the county will split the profits from the sale of the recycled goods I am hoping that we can sell enough commodities recycled products so that we can pay for the rent of the trail er and part of the salary Schwab said By renting the trailer we save money building another building for Products that people can recycle are glass clear amber and brown glass jars and aluminum beverage cans plastic milk and water jugs news papers

training pro grams needs to be blown up says hes now striking a match to do just that Armed with horror stories about nearly three dozen current programs Sharp reported Thursday to state lead ers on a plan he hopes will consolidate training and make certain that partici pants end up with jobs Todays report lights the fuse on a system that doesnt work for anyone except for private trade schools that are getting rich training Texans for jobs that dont exist and public bureau cracies that push more paper than Sharp said A new state law has created the Texas Workforce Commission which will replace the Texas Employment Commission and oversee job training and employment programs now run by 15 different state government agen cies Under that law Sharp has until Dec 1 to recommend to the governor and Spelling out results of work so far Sharp said he envisions the state agency providing funding coordination and other help to a network of local workforce development boards Those local boards with members appointed by local elected officials would serve as dealmakers with business and industry to meet needs for training and employment services Sharps report said the clan would make certain that businesses doing the hiring are active participants in identi fying key industries needed job skills and employment opportunities The services would be available to all Texans and all businesses rather than to specific groups targeted by individual programs Sharp said the program will be flex ible Training could be provided by community colleges private schools unions or a business itself as long as it gets results Another key feature would be accountability If a training programs graduates dont get jobs the program e Gruene Mansion Inn Restaurant PRESENTS BUSINESS LUNCH SPECIALS PERFECT

than he was before winning million playing Lotto Texas That may sound a little drastic but if Groce and his wife were to die he wouldnt be kidding Groce who is 59 and has been hos pitalized for ailments related to high blood pressure said Thursday that he failed to set up a trust or partnership before claiming his winnings By taking such action he would have protected his children and grandchil dren from the possibility of having to pay more than million in estate tax es that would be due immediately if he and his wife were to die Because Graces winnings are paid in installments over 20 years his children wouldnt have access to the money to pay the estate taxes Now Grace who claimed his jackpot in August 1994 says he wants the Texas Lottery Commission to clarify a rule that he says would allow him to redo his financial planning Right now if my wife and I die they are going to take everything youve land your house you name it My kids are going to wind up in the said Groce of Cleveland Texas The Texas Lottery Commission will meet Tuesday to discuss a rule that allows winners to assign a prize with an appropriate judicial order to anoth er party The rule could allow Groce to assign his winnings to a trust which would provide tax advantages and protect his family from the estate taxes that would be due if something happened to him and his wife For other winners the rule could allow them to assign their jackpots to financial companies that offer to pay them upfront cash TUESDAY CHICKEN LASAGNA Served in a sauce PEPPER STEAK WEDNESDAY PECAN CHICKEN Breaded
