by the State Comptroller of Public A halfcent tax increase whichwerit into effect in October contributed to most of the increase but reasons for the other increase in revenue are varied Comparing applestoapples we had an 1 percent said Michael Meek president of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Meek said a slightly higher population in addition to new and Target stores helped increase the revenue February also was a peak month for Win terTexans Meek said We have a very affluent winter visitor population and they spend a lot of money which helps the he said New Braunfels

The increases reflett a statewide trend 4 Local sales tax rebates averaged percent iriore than those for February last vear The sales tax figures outpace the growth of jobs and new businesses in Texas according to a prepared statement from the comptrollers office Teddy Vannoy a spokeswoman for the comptroller said her office does not have a clear picture of the cause of the increases Consumers are spending a little more than they did last Vannoy said We dont know Murder suspect may have previous revoked 9 Bearing ByMELANIEGERIK Staff Writer A May 9 court date has been set to deter mine if a San

murder charges Also Naef was charged with unlawfiilly carrying Weapons and possession of marir jiiana and almost 4 ounces of methampheta mines when he drove up to the scene March 28 while officers were investigating the mur ders He is being held on bpnd on those charges ation to By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer The president of Trout Unlimited GRTU said he believes the decision by the Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries Division to table strict trout regula tions on the Guadalupe River was the correct one It sounds like the wise decision to GRTU president Alan Bray said If the trout regulations were enacted this year mile stretch of the Guadalupe River below the Canyon JDam from the easternmost bridge of FM 306 downstream to the second bridge crossing on River Road would have been affected The regulations called for the ban of natural bait for fishing a new 16 inch minimum to keep trout and a three trout per day bag limit The provision containing the ban of natural baits was a sticking point among fishermen and River Road property owners at a public hearing at the Comal County Courthouse on April 10 biologists and officials said the rules were needed to establish a quality trout fishery on the Guadalupe River At the hearing biologists defended their proposal banning the use of natural baits on the river citing studies that have shown the mortality rate for trout released from live bait is 41 percent compared to a five to 10 percent mortality rate for those caught on artificial lures Last week officials announced they would drop the regu lations for this year and they would meet with all the parties and try to work out a compromise said they would make some modifications in their proposals based on the input they get from the public and then pre sent their modified regulations before the board in January 1997 GRTU actively supported the regulations but Bray said he and GRTU members want regulations that everyone can support I don think it would have been in anyones interest to do something that would have alienated Bray said They are for develop ing a quality trout fishery and they are doing it in a manner which has all the parties involved in it We are for the fish and for estab lishing a quality trout gray said We will do anything Construction skyrockets in county By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer The Comal County Appraisal Dis trict has released preliminary con struction values for 1996 and the num bers are up for the both school dis tricts cityi the county the sind th total taxail value We have alot of new construction out said Chief Appraiser Lynn Rodgers A jot of new people are moving into the Rodgers presented the figures to Commissioners Court on Thursday However he stressed the numbers he currently has are only preliminary They could decrease considerably once agricultural exemptions and appeals are taken into account The final numbers could be as much as million less than the pre liminary numbers because they are so he said Rodgers told commissioners new construction in the county has increased There were approximately 800 to 850 new homes built in Comal Coun ty in 1995 The countys preliminary value for new construction for 1996 is compared to last year That number will increase before it said Rodgers Theres a lot of construction going on all over the county There was also an increase in values this year for the two school districts the city and the CAD The CAD increased from to the city had last year and this year New Braun fels Independent School District had last year and this year The Comal Independent School District has a 1996 value of which is up from last years value of CISD value is pretty close to what it is for the county It includes the rapid construction and growth in the western part of the Rodgers said Rodgers said the total taxable value is The increases in new construction show the market is appreciating He said individuals appraisals will also keep increasing However this years increase will be about six to nine percent compared to last years increase of about per cent People will be unhappy again this year but I just try to explain it to as many people as possible and educate them on why it goes he said Sh0yd the minimum workers be increased
