Department for the Guadalupe River have some landowners and fishermen concerned The regulations proposed by the Parks and Wildlife Department are pro posed to help support and develop a trout hatchery along the Guadalupe River The proposed regulations are supported by Trout Unlimited a group of trout fishermen based in Austin who have a chapter in the New Braunfels area The proposed regulations would cover 10 miles of the Guadalupe Riv er from the second bridge on Highway 306 and the Second Crossing on River Road Only artificial lures would be allowed for all fish no natural baits cheese com worms insects cray TWO opposing philosophies of river ex Trout must have a minimum length of 16 inches to be kept and a bag limit of three fish per day will be instituted Trout Unlimited members argue the rules will allow trout to grow larger and have more successful spawns lead ing to a larger healthier trout popula tion in the river Studies have shown that trout tend to swallow natural baits deeper causing more of them to die when released John Weber a fisherman and prop erty owner along River Road believes the restriction prohibiting artificial lures will infringe on the rights of bait fish erman who have been fishing with on proper use to square off at hearing natural baits for generations People are disturbed and frightened that something can be taken away from Weber said And they dont know what to do about Weber is encouraging concerned fishermen and landowners to attend a public hearing on the proposed regu lations which will be held at the Comal County Courthouse Annex on next Wednesday April 10 Weber said he has no animosity toward trout fishermen since he has friends who are members of TU But he believes the proposed rules would be hard to enforce Weber has been busy writing letters and contacting officials from and local officials about his concerns over the proposed regulations He said no matter what the public says in the hearings he believes has already made up its mind on the pro posed regulations has pretty much said its mind has been made up on the regu Weber said Not so says Ken Kurzawski staff support specialist for the inland fish eries division of Kurzawski said a lot has to be done before the proposed regulations are a done deal In most cases the district offices prepares the proposals then we have staff meetings and regional Kurzawski said In January we pre sented the proposals during the regular meeting of We needed their approval and authority to jiold the public hearings When everyone tells their concerns on public record at the we will then present that to the commission at a regular meeting in May They will then make their decision based on Kurzawski said his staff carefully weighed the considerations natural bait fisherman had with the regulations and the benefits of developing a trout hatch ery on the Guadalupe River I want to give us the oppor tunity to let us resolve Weber said I think the big issue for people is not to back off and say that this is a done Fine Music Close to Home HeraldZeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNAU The MidTexas Symphony performed two shows for more than area students yesterday at the New

Independent School District will consider renaming the Bulverde Primary School at its next meeting after several patrons appeared before the board at last weeks meeting LaVerne Welborn told the board that the Rahe family deserved more recognition than simply a wing named after them She gave the history of the familys teaching record in the county and said there was over 238 years of teaching experience in one family spanning the entire 20th century Its so unique I dont think youll ever see it achieved she said Each one contributed so much to the Welborn said there is a lot of support for naming a school after the Rahe family In a letter by former CISD superintendent William Sevier he said the Rahe family always reflected the very finest levels of honesty integrity dedication loyalty and perhaps best of all they loved Its not a coincidence that the Rahe name was recommended for every new school being built in the said Welborn Welborn recommended changing the name of Bul verde Primary to Rahe Elementary to make visible that the school was dedicated to Ernst Rahe at his retirement in after 35 years of teaching in the Bulverde area The name would also recognize the other members of the Rahe family who taught in the Bulverde area I think you would be able to instill in the students of tomorrow the same sense of pride as the students of the said Sevier The board agreed to place the item on the agenda for April 15 for further discussion and possible action Chamber of Commerce seeking Small Business Person of 1996 As a part of the Small Business Week observance June 2
