SUNDAY $1.00 Vol. 143, No. 261 Police seek family of train victim By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer A New Braunfels man is dead after a train accident early Friday morning. Bill Williams seemed, to the train engineer, to be asleep on the tracks. A train approached him between Jahn Street and the back of the municipal building maintenance area, said New Braunfels Police Lieutenant John Wommack. The engineer blew the train whistle and locked the train's brakes. Williams didn't move, and the train couldn't stop on time. The train lock down automatically stopped the tram's clock. Wommack said, which showed the exact time of the accident    12:48 a.m. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Ray Martinez. Williams* body is at the Travis County Coroner's office for autopsy. Police suspect alcohol may have played a part in his death. Wommack said. New Braunfels Police are seeking help locating Williams’ family. He was 44 years old and African-American. “He used to work at Landa Tire and Auto and at Bill's Detail,” Wommack said. “He washed cars and mowed lawns for people ” Anyone with information about Williams' family should call the NBPD at (>08-2179. CLWSC studies water line grant By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer An update on a planning grant, the budget, and an escrow fund w ere some of the items discussed by the Canyon Lake Water Supply Corporation’s Board of Directors on Wednesday. General Manager Dale Yates reported he attended a meeting in San Antonio w uh officials from the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority and the San Antonio River Authority concerning a planning grant from the Texas W ater Development Board.

Yates said future plans for the w ater corporation will depend on GBRA plans to build a water treatment plant on the Southside of the lake, lf the GBRA builds the plant, the corporation will save money in the long run because all CL W SC w ill have to do is to purchase different points of entry to draw the water from. “GBRA will build the plant when it feels it has the customer base from the w ater users (at Canyon Lake),” Yates said. He said based on this information the GBRA, SARA and CLWSC redesigned their plans tor the grant to the Texas W ater Development Bourd so that it w ill not conflict w ith another study, Trans Texas W ater Study, which is being funded b\ the state of Texas.

Faulty brakes blamed for Seguin Avenue mishap By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Faulty brakes may be the cause of an accident that sent three people to McKenna Memorial Hospital Friday afternoon. A blue Olds Cutlass driven by Tabatha Rodriguez of New Braunfels rear ended a brown Toyota Cairny driven by Sandra Santana of New' Braunfels on Seguin Avenue in front of the Sonic restaurant at about 3 p.m. Rodriguez told New Braunfels Police Officer Scan Gabbard that her brakes malfunctioned completely, he said. “The Cutlass hit the Cairny at a pretty high rate of speed, and there were no skid marks,” Gabbard said. “That would indicate brake malfunction.” New Braunfels EMS units took Rodriguez, Santana, and Santana’s 15-year-old daughter to McKenna. New Braunfels Police are still investigating the accident. “Excessive speed may have played a part,” Gabbard said.
