major renovation so this years Troutfest has been moved to the Olympic pool The fish travel to New Braunfels in special aerated tractor trailer tankers Dean said The eight to 10inch trout come from the A E Wood hatchery in San Mar cos They can be caught with meal worms corn and power bait The catfish come in a bigger trail er from he said They prob ably wont bite the traditional dough bait but theyll bite just about any thing else I have seen them bite a lot on cheese night crawlers I even saw one guy catch one on a Most of the catfish will range in weight from one to three pounds with a few larger fish mixed in Children can take home 10 fish for adults Troutfest lasts from Jan 4 through 14 weekdays 4 to 8 and weekends 10 to 8 This has gotten bigger every Dean said Although it is now legal to carry a licensed concealed handgun in Texas many places have banned such firearms from their premises The Comal County Commissioners on Thursday will consider banning guns from countyowned buildings Comal County Judge Carter Cas teel said that the law says a concealed handgun cannot be taken into a court room or a place where a governmental body meets She said this could be interpreted as only those specific rooms which would allow an individ ual to carry a gun into the building if they are going to an office such as the tax office or the district clerks office Our purpose would be to limit you from bringing it into the courthouse building she said Our sug gestion is to leave it in the Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer said it may take a court precedent to determine exactly where the law pro hibits the carrying of a concealed hand gun However until that time the county wants to be certain they are not allowed in the building Were looking at doing it just to be said Bremer Its just kind of a failsafe Casteel said the county is not wor ried about licensed citizens bringing guns into the building and creating a threat However that would mean some sort of system would have to be established for checking guns before entering the courtroom much like a coat check she said However Bremer said the prohibition would help court house security plan that is under devel opment Were looking at doing it just to be safe Its just kind of a failsafe Jack Bremer The fewer weapons that are in the building the safer we he said County Commissioner J L Jum bo Evans said he does not believe the prohibition would drastically increase security He said the fact that the gun would be concealed would make it hard to detect The City of New Braunfels consid ered a similar prohibition about a month ago However the motion failed due to the lack of a second Mayor Paul E Fraser who made the motion said he favored a prohibition because of the possible threat a concealed hand gun could pose to both the public and the employees You need to have a firm control on what can be used as a weapon in such a potentially volatile said Fraser I just dont think we need weapons concealed or not in any pub lic City Council member Jan Kennady said she personally sees both sides of the argument on prohibition Howev er she said she believes the item may come back before the council for dis cussion because employees have a right to be protected She said people can be calm one minute and volatile the next and that raises concern I think with that in mind I may ask that it be brought back before the council so we can at least discuss said Kennady Lions reach out on Souper Sunday By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNAUL The last of the pecans Willie Lynn and Glenn Scrutchen pick up pecans under a tree near Torrey Street last Thursday Filing deadline passes Ballot for March primaries now set The vast majority of people will be watching the big game on Super Bowl Sunday This will likely include chips dips and various snack foods How ever many people do not even have a meal let alone snacks The New Braunfels Breakfast Lions Club is chal lenging various groups to reach out to these people Richard Martin Super Bowl Chair person said the organization will send out about 170 letters to churches and service clubs issuing a challenge to raise money for those less fortunate in the community He said they are asking that groups ask members for a 1 donation on Super Bowl Sunday The group can then send the money directly to the SOS Food Bank Were the catalysts to get this start ed Theyre not going through said Martin Theyre raising the mon ey from their people and their organi zation gets to give it directly to the food Martin said this is the first year for the challenge However he hopes it can become an annual event te help the food bank He said many of the groups getting letters have large memberships He said if enough people participate it could provide a great boost for the food bank Conceivably we could help the food bank come up with a couple thou sand dollars without really straining said Martin The drive is particularly important at this time of year Martin said people tend to donate more during the holiday season and afterwards the food banks are left with a small supply of goods again He said groups collecting a sin gle dollar from every member can help ease this burden The needs of the food bank keep going on They have hungry kids and people every day that dont go away after the said Martin One dollar for most people isnt that big of a deal but you start to multiply that by a couple of hundreds or hopefully thousands and thats a lot of money to help augment the supply of Groups wanting to participate can send their donations directly to the SOS Food Bank at 248 E Merri weather Donations should be sent no later than Monday Jan 29 The food bank will keep a record of who partic ipates and how much is donated so results from the communitywide dri ve can be tallied As of the filing deadline 5 Jan 2 1995 the following people have filed appointment of treasurer forms with the county clerk

of the Garden Ridge City Council on Tuesday night the council approved a change in water meter readings which will make it easier for the city staff to handle Instead of the Garden Ridge Water Company reading meters at mid month the company will now read them at the end of the City Secretary Chris Boring said Mayor Jay P Millikin said the changes were made because the city rums in a water report on meter read ings to the Edwards Underground Water District every month Millikin said it will help the city in book keeping matters It the change will help us with our financial Millikin said It will give us more accuracy in those We are looking for more equitable shar ing between the prospective develop er and the Mayor Jay P Millikin The council gave approval for Dela Luckett to sell the property which is an extension of Gardenia Bend Drive to a potential developer with out her submitting a preplat plan to the council Millikin said Mission City Development is interested in purchasing the land to build an esti mated 1718 new homes When Mis sion City Development buys the land Millikin said it will have to submit the prcplat plan before it can con struct any new homes Another potential housing devel opment was also the topic of conver sation at the meeting The council looked at an offer from ABG Invest ments which is interested in pur chasing 177 acres on FM 3009 In the letter Millikin said the develop er offered to assist in the expansion of a water transmission line Millikin said the council found this offer too low because the city wants to build an elevated water stor age tank in addition to the water trans mission line When the elevated storage tank is thrown in Millikin said the developer would have to pay in help ing with city water improvements The city will write a letter back to ABG Investments explaining its posi tion on the matter We are looking for more equi table sharing between the prospec tive developer and the city when it comes to water Mil
