New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 28, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 2 □ Herald-Zeitung □ Thursday, March 28,1996 Project KISS, CL chamber begin new era By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer £L_ ^ A new era for the Canyon Lake ^Community Youth Recreation Center (Project KISS) began on Monday afternoon when Project KISS signed a land lease agreement with the Canyon ^ake Chamber of Commerce at the .chamber’s office. “I am ecstatic that we now have a ■site,” CLCYRC founder Trish Wyatt s^id. r. In front of a packed house of Canyon Lake citizens, county commissioner candidates Jack Dawson and Douglas Kirk, County Commissioner “Jumbo” Evans, Comal Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Jerry Major, Sheriff Jack Bremer and schoolchildren, Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce President Richard K. Smith and Comal County Sheriffs Deputy Mark Reynolds, CLYRC committee president, signed [the agreement. The agreement calls for a 99-year lease in which Project KISS would {pay the chamber $ I a year. In return, •the Canyon Lake Chamber of Com-jmerce would provide 9.5 acres of land [where its present chamber offices are •located at on FM 2673 between Sattler and Startzville. Smith emphasized the youth/community center will be for all the residents of Canyon Lake to enjoy. “It is a community center, not a hamber of commerce building,” Smith said. “We will own the land, jut Project KISS will own the build-ng. That is why we are calling it a oint project. I believe it will benefit everyone in the community.” • Changes for the community/youth Recreation center will have to be implemented because both the chamber and project KISS will be sharing office fcpace, which would include an activity room and a board room for both prganizations. I “I believe we have an obligation to Ihe community to provide additional Rpace (for a meeting place),” Smith laid. ► Charles Stephens, II, a member of file chamber’s board of directors, said ihe combination of both the chamber lalProject KISS working together will benefit in the construction of the ^pnter. ~ ‘The combination of these two nips will provide services and maters that otherwise the center wouldn’t ive gotten,” Stephens said. • HAVE FUN - GO BOWLING!

Paint supplies include paint thinners, paint strippers^ spray cans, lacquer, wood preservatives, and solvents. New Braunfels Assistant Fire Chief Elroy Friesenhahn is the project manager for the collection, and said it is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. behind Fire Station #2 on Loop 337. He said the there is a slight change from the previous ones that he wants to make the public aware of. In the past, there was no charge for the collection of any of the products. However, that has changed. He said surveys performed at previous collections showed people would be willing to pay a small fee for the collection of certain products. This approach is being tried this year. “(The fee) is really just a token of what the actual cost is... but it will help recover part of the cost,” said Friesenhahn. Recyclables, such as used motor oil, used oil filters, auto batteries, tires, paint, and antifreeze, will still be collected free of charge. However, there will be a charge of $1 per pound, including container for disposal 6f garage and garden products, cleaning products, and paint supplies. Friesenhahn said the cost to foe city and county for foe disposal will be $3 to $5, and the $1 will help recoup some of that. Garage and garden supplies include brake fluid, herbicide, pesticides, rat poison, solvents, and pool chemicals. Cleaning products are drain cleaners, oven cleaners, spot (which is the contractor) will charge us,* he said. There are several items that will not be accepted at the collection. These include trash, ammunition, industrial waste, explosives, medical waste, fireworks, commercial waste, flares, smoke detectors, radioactive material, and gas cylinders. Friesenhahn said these will not be accepted because they do not have foe proper permits to do that. He also added that foe contractor has already been looking at how to weigh the material. He said the longest wait last year was 16 minutes, and he hopes to keep it to that again this year. ‘‘There may be a slight hold up, but it shouldn’t be much,” he said. Friesenhahn also stressed that foe collection day, which is sponsored by the city of New Braunfels and Comal County, is still in need of volunteers. He said foe fire marshal has already found about SO volunteers, but an additional IO or 12 more is needed, “especially to help with the batteries and tires.” Friesenhahn said Laidlaw has told him that the last two collections held had higher participation than foe national average. He said he is happy with this fact, and is hoping for another great turnout for this one. Individuals wanting to volunteer or get more information on foe collection can call 608-2120.

One Insurance Company. Germania. Grandpa bought his first Germania farm insurance policy the same year he bought his first Model T. He always said the Model T took a load off his horse and Germania took, a load off his mind. He joined Germania because he liked the idea of farmers banding together to protect one another. But he stayed because Germania never let him down.    Dad saw the farm through lots of changes. Some of them were pretty scary, but it helped knowing that a strong, reliable company like Germania w as there if he needed it.    Now    that I’m raising my ow n kids, I know' why Dad and Grandpa trusted Germania. It’s good doing business w ith a homegrown Texas company that really understands Texans. Today, Germania provides the home, life, and auto insurance that my family needs.
