back last call hour By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer A hearing has been set to determine if the Comal County Commissioners acted outside their authbrity when they voted last year to rescind late night drinking hours in the unincorporated areas of the county In February 1995 the county commissioners voted to rescind a 1979 order extending drinking hours in the county The order signed by the commissioners said the hours should be rescind ed in order to protect and preserve the health safety and welfare of the citizens of Comal Coun Thats pretty significant damages Its definitely hurting Sam Katz Attorney representing bar owners The order went into effect March 5 1995 which meant bar owners had to stop selling alco hol at 1 on Sunday and at midnight the rest of the week The previous hours had been 2 every day Bar owners said this caused a loss in business and income Sam Katz an attorney representing six bar owners said since the change in hours the owners have lost income and some have had to file bankruptcy and have lost their business and home Thats pretty significant Katz said Its definitely hurting A suit was filed against the county and the commissioners almost immediately in Comal County In November that suit was dropped and anoth er was filed in Travis County In addition to the county and its commissioners the new suit named the state and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Com mission Katz said naming the state and TABC allowed the plaintiffs to decide which county to file the case in He said there was a question of impar tiality in suing the commissioners in Comal Coun ty We thought it would be very difficult and near impossible to find an impartial judge and Katz said In March a Travis County district judge grant ed the county a change of venue and moved the case back to Comal County Local district judges Turn to Bars Page 10A ROCKIN THE HOUSE photo by MICHAEL DARNALL 1 10th Annual Johnny Dos arid Gruene Music Feet The threeday

the increase in the states gradua tion requirements combined with student involvement in extracurricular activities such as band and athletics districts across Texas are having to find a way to fit it

with reviewing the three applicants vying for city tourism dollars is recommending to the City Council Monday that it award the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce a fiveyear contract but set aside a portion of the money for other promotional uses at the councils discretion The proposed contract would give the New Braunfels chamber no more than in the first year and raises of about 5 percent each addi tional year At least of the contract would be handed over to the city for any use by law including special events The move would allow smaller promotions firms to apply for the without having to Jan Kennedy submit a certified audit The audit requirement was the subject of much debate during the review process as the committee negotiated with the three applicants In fact the review committee recommended the council disqualify the other two applicants the Greater Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Comal County and Susan H Phillips EVENTS for failing to provide audited financial statements The Hispanic chamber and Phillips felt the audit was too expensive a requirement since they were not guaranteed to receive the tourism money they were applying for The New
