western part of Comal County a place to place soccer and baseball has been completed and work will soon get underway to prepare the fields for use Approximately children were using land owned by the Bul verde Property Owners Association for soccer games However a senior citizen center is being built on the site and the land will no longer be available which created the possibility that the children would have no soccer fields this year The county spent months looking for land to build a park in the Bulverde area County Commissioner Danny Scheel said a land deal was completed Tuesday afternoon Under the deal the county will buy about 26 acres of land a mileandahalf north of Spring Branch on Highway 281 I just got a call out of the blue one day and the man said he had some land he was looking to said Scheel We got a really good deal on it and every Inch of it is completely Scheel said the land will be used for a park to serve between 500 and 800 children from the Bulverde Spring Branch and Canyon Lake areas The park will consist of nine soccer fields and three baseball fields as well as parking space for 250 cars Plus we hope to have picnic areas put in eventually so people can have shaded areas to enjoy a day he said Scheel said the land is ideal because it is flat does not have a lot of rocks or trees and it is also very accessible He said it is hope ful that the teams will be able to start using the fields within 90 days He said the delay is because some work will need to be done in the area including building a low water crossing drilling wells and hooking up electricity He said agreements also need to be reached with the various associations that will be using the field Thats whats going to take time Otherwise we could have kids out there playing soccer next he said WORD board faces long agenda Board members of the Comal County Water Oriented Recreation District WORD will be burning the midnight oil tonight at the Canyon Lake Action Center as they will tackle 20 agenda items The meeting will start at with the workshop agenda beginning at followed by the action agenda The major agenda items WORD will be tackling will be the elec

approve the 1995 financial report and send it to the county auditors office for its review and written opinion No action taken on guns issue By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer A city council with divided opinions on carrying weapons in public places agreed on one thing Monday that they should let Texas Seriate Bill 60 be the standard for regulating weapons carrying on city property An ordinance on Mondays agenda dealing with carrying weapons on city premises died because there was no motion to approve it The state bill already in effect has specific points regarding guns on city premises according to Karen Ken nard legislative counsel to the Texas Municipal League a city may prohibit aiicensee from carrying a handgun on city premises with premises being denned as a building or part of a build ing BUT NOT A STREET SIDE WALK OR PARKING a licensee may not carry a hand gun at any meeting of a governmental entity a city MAY NOT regulate the carrying of a firearm by licensee IN A PARK OR AT A POLITICAL RAL LY OR In other words the state already dictates what the cities may do in these cases so a city ordinance could be considered redundant Whether or not city employees such as sanitation collectors should be allowed to carry licensed weapons was debated but no motion was made Clay Coleman and Assistant Principal Ernesto Casas stand in front of New Braunfels fellow
