drought drags on By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer As die drought conditions plaguing South Texas linger many local fanners are starting to see the effects on their crops Comal County Assistant Extension Agent Roger Havlak said the growing season for wheat and oats is fin ished and yields were poor due to lack of rain He said he has not been out to look at local farms recently but he has been told most farmers baled the wheat or grazed it out He was told those that did harvest the wheat only got about five bushels per acre from it Some are not even harvesting it because the produc tion was so low Some might but theyll still have a very low production said Havlak Local farmers also had to decide recently whether or not to plant corn and milo with no sign of rain in sight Havlak said some may have waited a little longer to plant this year to see if any rains would come to moist en the ground However the majority did plant and the recent showers may have helped a little But we will definitely need some more rain soon to keep the plants he said Havlak has been told com is usually knee high by now but is only a foot high He said this will mean a really stunted The halfinch rain April 9 and the rain the other night has helped the milo crop but total rainfall still remains very very Even if the milo m the fields continues to the sporadic rains it will only yield twothirds of what it ordinarily does because of the lack of moisture lower down That gives you an idea of what its said Havlak We just need to continue getting these rains Its not too late for a good rain to come in and save the crops that are out Blacks discuss response to Klan rally By DOUG LOVEDAY Managing Editor Elected officials and local church leaders are continuing their call for area residents to stay

Fraser said Wednesday Several activities including a Uni ty Rally and an interdenominational prayer service have been discussed recently by various leaders as a means for local residents to express themselves in regard to the Klan ral ly and what it stands for No specifics have been worked out as yet how ever The Black Heritage Society has made it clear that avoiding the Plaza on the evening of June 1 is the best strategy citizens of all colors can take a BHS member said Wednes day That was our thought in the beginning The best thing is for peo Iff they get the attention they want they may feel as if they can come back another Ervin pie not to said Walter Ervin What were going to do is urge people here all people to just not show up Theyre looking for attention If they get the attention

races will be contested may or District 5 and District 6 Councilwoman Jan Kennady and Cheryl Scott are vying for mayor The District 5 race features Jim Hendricks and Cathy Talcott In District 6 Juliet Watson and Mary Lou Erben are bat tling for that seat For the first time in 30 years voters will choose the mayor at large and the two council districts have been re drawn Scott vs Kennady Scott said the big issue she is con cerned about is the recent five percent increase in New Braunfels Utilities rates and the approval of revenue bonds for NBU voted on by the council I believe it is the right for citizens to vote on any bond issues passed by the city Scott said Water traffic and combating crime with good Neighborhood Watch pro grams were three other issues that Scott said she will address if she is elected mayor She also wants to establish informal meetings with citizens in one district per month with her and the coun cilmember from that district It would be very informal people would sit down and address the issues pertaining to that Scott said Kennady Scott Scott feels her many years as a banker credit collector and a con struction equipment saleswoman give her an understanding for the concerns of city taxpayers I work like everyone else she said I will be very conscience of where the money is being Kennady a three year councilmem ber said she is concerned about the citys future concerning water and growth The environment especially water green spaces and clean air are my con Kennady said I think we should go ahead and continue a dia logue with San Antonio on the water issue and require fairness from other cities on that The city should review its master plan and try to develop better roads and stricter ordinances to accommo date incoming growth Kennady said She said she would try to combat crime by youth programs such as Communities In Schools and DARE I have volunteered in 35 local and civic organizations and that has brought me up to speed on how citizens fee and their viewpoints about Kennady said Hendricks vs Talcott Having the peoples voices heard and growth are two issues that Hen dricks want to address The big issue is when they raised the utility rates without the peoples voices being Hendrick a real estate appraiser and businessman said Peoples voices need to be heard on these Hendricks said he wants to use funds from the citys tax to make improvements to streets and drainage in the city Weve got to get ready for the increase in our Hendricks said We cant stay in the street and wait for the steamroller to get To provide adequate housing for newcomers and citizens alike Hen dricks says the city should support efforts to go after funds or grants to bring in low cost affordable hous Talcott said that maintaining and keeping our resources pristine will be one of the issues she wants addressed if she is elected to the council Since District 5 has two rivers the Comal and the Guadalupe there will always be tourist traffic and that will always be a big Talcott said I have open communication with the owners of Schlitterbahn and the only thing we can do is keep all communi cation open and talk about I Hendricks Talcott Erben Watson Talcott said she favors summer work programs that keep kids busy and keeps them from joining gangs She said her involvement as vice president of the Downtown Association and participation in the Leadership New Braunfels program gives her the qualifications to be a good council man Erben vs Watson Registered nurse and day care own er Erben said traffic congestion is a big concern of hers The main problem in District 6 is traffic in residential areas and I am concerned about keeping the integrity of the Erben said With more people coming through the residential neighborhoods she is concerned that crime and vandalism could increase in those areas My responsibility is to keep con stituents informed and get their total participation in making the best deci sions for them in dealing with these Erben said She also wants to see downtown revitalized so that it will be attractive for new businesses coming to New Braunfels Erben said her years as a registered nurse and business person have given her the skills to work and communicate well with people Watson an associate psychologist for the Comal Independent School Dis trict said growth is also a concern of hers especially the issues relating to traffic and water I think we are on the right road concerning water options for the Watson said We need to work with the San Antonio City Council in urging them to get an alternative water City services such as police and fire need to be looked at so that they can provide adequate services to the citi zens when the growth comes Watson said We need to redraw our master plan and look at the changes and the dynam ics in the Watson said Watson cited her service in the city by serving on the river committee and the noise ordinance committee Water crisis calls for
