New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 17, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas *2 Q Herakf-Zeitung g Tuesday, December 17, 1996 Park Friends won’t fight access issue By DAVID OEKUNDER Staff Writer GUADALUPE RIVER STATE PARK — The Friends of Guadalupe River/Honey Creek Inc. have not hired an attorney and are not contesting the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on the issue of more public access for the Honey Creek State Natural Area, the organization’s new president said on Monday. Richard Solis, Friends president, refuted a report in the San Antonio Express-News last week that said the Friends of Guadalupe River/Honey Creek had hired Houston attorney James Blackburn Jr. to fight TP&WD if it allowed horseback riding and mountain biking in the Honey Creek area. Solis made it clear at the task force meeting at the park that the Friends board of directors had not authorized such a move. Solis said Henry F. Wagner, who told the Herald-Zeitung last week he had talked to Blackburn, was removed as the organization’s president during a meeting over the weekend. Solis said Wagner had talked to Blackburn without the endorsement of the board of the directors. Solis said Wagner was removed as president over matters unrelated to his talking to Blackburn. He decline to comment further. When the Herald-Zeitung contacted Blackburn, he said he was working on a pro-bono basis for the Friends. In a letter he passed out to task force and audience members, Solis wrote “... The Friends of Guadalupe River/Honey Creek, Inc. has never employed the services of Mr. James Blackburn, nor does it have any such intention to hire his services or any other attorneys’ services ... The Friends of Guadalupe River/Honey Creek, Inc. is not in conflict with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department or Guadalupe River State Park over the status of Honey Creek State Natural Area.” Blackburn fired a letter to TP&WD Commission Chairman Lee Bass expressing opposition for allowing expanded public access to Honey Creek. Solis said he was worried that any misunderstandings by the parks commission might jeopardize the Friends attempt to get more funding for outdoor science camps for children in Honey Creek. The Friends has endorsed a resolution voicing their opposition to any mountain biking and horseback riding in Honey Creek. ‘‘We like the way it is right now — guided tours,” Solis said. “We like for activities such as horseback riding and mountain biking to be done at Guadalupe River State Park,” Wagner could not be reached for comment. Trails From Page 1 San Antonio, Boerne and Comal County. If that pilot program succeeds, Solis told the task force the Friends would consider a year-round camp program at the park, beginning in the 1997-98 school year. The task force then looked into the day-use activities that the state natural area is currently being used. Those activities are interpretive education, bird watching, dove hunting and guided tours. Parks and wildlife department officials in Austin have requested that dove hunting be added to Honey Creek in 1997. The parks and wildlife commission would have to approve the request. Hisler said the park received a federal $10,000 grant through TP&WD to construct a study trail in Honey Creek. The park would have to match the $10,000 grant. The trail would be seven miles. “We would have to figure out a way to develop it so it will attach itself to the 2.2 mile interpretive trail currently in existence,” Hisler said. The possibility of horseback riding at Honey Creek raised concerns among the audience because they said it would adversely affect the environment at the state natural area. Task force member Bob Ryan said equestrian groups from San Antonio are interested in the idea of having a public access trail area in Guadalupe River State Park. “A lot of people in San Antonio would have a place to ride their horses,” Ryan said. “They would be in a different atmosphere. I am not here to destroy artifacts (in the area). I am looking for a place to ride my horse. The state park belongs to the people of the state.

Lottery probe reports 182 files are missing AUSTIN (AP) — More questions have arisen about the Texas Lottery after Lottery Commission Chairwoman Harriet Miers revealed that 182 investigation files are missing. One of the files covered an investigation about instant game tickets unaccounted for after lottery promotions at a race track partly owned by the lottery’s main -contractor. That contract recently was renewed for another five years without a rebidding process. One question has involved thousands of dollars the lottery spent on promotions at Retama Park, the financially strapped horse track , owned partly by GTECH. Ms. Miers said lottery officials were responding to a public request for information about those promotions when they discovered the file and 181 others missing. She could not say what other investigations were covered by the missing material and said many people had had access to the files. None of the files were the subject of federal investigations and had not been subpoenaed. © CIRCLE C MARKETING A I till Service Inlet net ( (instilling ( <>m|).m\ We provide Web & graphics design, Internet advertising, computer based training and a number of other support services.

San Antonio needs.” Ryan said a less environmentally sensitive area in Guadalupe River State Park should be used for horseback riding. Solis, whose organization supported a resolution opposing horseback riding and mountain biking in the Honey Creek State Natural Area, said he could favor allowing horseback riding in the park. Before any more public access activities are allowed in Honey Creek area, the management agreement between the Nature Conservancy and TP&WD needs to be studied to determine whether it prohibits additional uses, Muckelroy said.
