wire service reports Cruising into a final weekend of frenetic campaigning with a sizeable lead in the polls President Clinton accused his opponents today of employing the old politics of division for electoral gain I say to them weve seen the results of this Clinton said in his weekly radio address which he made while campaign stop in San Antonio The politics of division yields only division and Without mentioning Republican challenger Bob Dole by name Clin ton said Many people treat elections as opportunities to divide Campaign aides said Clinton was aiming at Doles use of affirmative action and immigration as wedge Clinton Dole making his last weekly radio address before Tues days election listed the differences between him and the president and promised to maintain his values if elected I will not be Dole said as he rode in a bus caravan across Michigan as part of a 96hour marathon campaign tour I will not turn against the values that shaped me 1 will never run on a stolen Dole also

Aquifer wells the city of Garden Ridge is asking New Braunfels Utilities to consider selling some of its surplus water rights By the end of the year all Edwards well owners must sub mit basic information about their wells to the Edwards Aquifer Authority The information must include information on the most water pumped in one year between 1972 and 1993 According to Senate Bill 1477 which created the author ity the total claims must not exceed acre feet of water initially and acre feet by2010 Some estimates currently indicate that the regions wells are using at least acre feet causing many well owners like New Braunfels Utilities and Garden Ridge to anticipate cutbacks during the permit process NBU General Manager Paula DiFonzo said cities and util ities are left to guess how much water they will be able to use because the criteria for making cutbacks lias not been set and Tuesdays election may cause significant changes in the EAAs 15member board EAAs job is huge and will be one of the toughest things trying to jump into because there are such big issues and deadlines to face with said DiFonzo whose term as an appointed EAA member for Comal County ends in December The concern is If Im permitted how do I meet my growth Officials in Garden Ridge where the systems customer base is almost entirely singlefamily homes expect the EAA to limit the use of the citys three aquifer wells Garden Ridge Mayor Jay P Millikin sent a letter more than a week ago to DiFonzo seeking negotiations for a possible purchase of water either from NBUs surface water rights or through aquifer water rights after the EAA com pletes its permitting process Other cities such as San Marcos expressed interest this past summer in buying water from NBU which can expand its surface water treatment plant to supply up to 24 million gallons of water per day DiFonzo said she began discussions with Millikin on Friday and expects to resume negotiations this week NBU currently has rights to pump about 8 millipn gallons per day from the Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake through its surface water treatment plant It plans to claim almost 9 million gallons per day as its historical high for use from its aquifer wells The utility reached that mark in 1986 Over the past summer NBU used an average of about 10 million gallons per day of water from both the surface and aquifer sources and it averaged about 7 million gallons per day for the year utility officials said If the EAA grants NBU its historical claim the utility would have about 17 million gallons per day of combined surface and aquifer water rights leaving a surplus it could sell to other communities Millikin said he will ask for about to gal lons per day in a contract that ends in 2005 He then may ask for to million gallons per day in a contract running from 2005 to 2010 New Braunfels is big enough for more than one chamber See 44
