New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 11, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas ii Herald-Zeitung O Thursday, January 11,1996 Bremer lists accomplishments at campaign kickoff By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Loyal supporters packed the Civic Center lobby last night to help Sheriff Jack Bremer kick off his reelection campaign. Bremer cited the dropping county crime rates as proof of his performance in office — burglary down 40 percent in the first 11 months of 1995, robberies down 33 percent, sexual assaults and auto theft down one-third. Bremer took pride in his efforts to fight drugs and drug-related crime in Comal County. “When you take a doper off the streets you’re taking a burglar and a thief off the streets too,” he said. “The jail is one of the most important things the Sheriff does,” Bremer said. He quoted a state official as saying the Comal County Jail is the best jail of its size in the state and maybe the country. Over the past two years, the jail has returned over $ 1,300,000 in income to the taxpayers of Comal County through outside agency contracts,” Bremer said. Cooperation between the Sheriffs Department and other agencies has made the Guadalupe River cleaner and safer, Bremer said. Bremer said the Comal County Sheriffs Department is a model for other departments in producing highly trained officers. Bremer is being challenged in this year’s party primary by fellow Republicans Bob Holder and Max Wommack Jr. Comal County Commissioners Court The following actions were taken by Comal County Commissioners Court on Monday, Jan. 8, 1996: n Approved claims. ■ Approved an amendment to plat for Tamarack Shores, Section II, combining Lots 448 and 449 into Lot 448R. ■ Opened bids for uniform rental, shirts and pants. ■ Approved proposal for Continued Provision of Tactical EMS Services and ratified signature of Jim Winn, Alamo Area Narcotics Task Force.

San Antonio SI .50 ALL SHOWS $1.50 LCRA ready to issue grants By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer The Lower Colorado River Authority wants to share the wealth. It is giving money back to communities in its service area in the form of Community Development Partnership Program (CDPP). LCRA officials met with local residents last Thursday to explain the program and encourage grant applications. “I think we had a really good meeting — we had a very good turnout,” said Paula DiFonzo, New Braunfels Utilities general manager. CDPP grants target non-profit programs that benefit as many community members as possible, DiFonzo said. “Grants are up to $25,000,” she said. “They have some with a maximum of $ 150,000 over three years.” Any grant over $5,000 needs to have a 20 percent match. The LCRA will process grant applications in three cycles a year. This first year, they will start with Cycle II, with applications distributed in December and turned in by Jan. 31. Grants for January applicants will be awarded during March. Another cycle of applications will be available in March and turned in by April 30. Some examples of CDPP funded programs are: ■ public fire-fighting organizations, ■ a governmental body, ■ non-profit service organization, ■ local development council. The CDPP grants will not be eligible for: ■ for profit entities, ■ individuals, ■ fraternal organizations, ■ veterans’ organizations, ■ professional organizations, ■ debt reduction campaigns, ■ church-sponsored activities limited to church membership. To request an application or for information, call 1-800-776-5272. Applications for March grants are due by Jan. 31, 1996.
