rehabilitation and occupational health service can obtain it through a new outpatient clinic at 532 N Union Ave that officially began operations today The new clinic called Occupational Health of New Braunfels offers occupational health services such as injury treatment and drug screening along with basic rehabilitation services Organizers said they hope the new facility will offer lower costs for residents who traditionally have traveled to such places as San Antonio for these types of services The clinic is the result of a partnership of Warm Springs Rehabilitation Network McKenna Memorial Hospital and the Baptist Health Systern that formed one year ago to provide comprehensive occupational services to the area McKenna plans to open a sports fitness and rehabilitation center on the 700 block of Landa Street by the end of this year that will provide occupational and rehabilitation services The outpatient clinic will provide occupational services until the new facility is complete Up until now physicians all over town would see a certain amount of workmens comp and occupation health Dr James Gardner the fulltime physician at the clinic They wanted to offer someone dedicated to

build an 8inch water transmission line in the city of Marion could be completed within the next few days an engineer working on the project said As soon as they can get a dry day they are one or two days away from getting the first phase Arno Penshorn the project manager from Ford Engineering in San Antonio said The 8inch parallel water transmission line is being built by the city of Marion to complement the current 8inch transmission line that already serves the city The project is being financed through a Community Development Block Grant Construction of the water transmission line began in mid February Penshorn said The first phase which covers feet started from Wetz Street and when it is completed will end at Youngsford Road Phase II of the line will begin at Youngsford Road and go another feet toward the citys gallon ground storage tank on did Marion Road which is about four miles north of the city We are several days away from finishing Phase A 1 and Phase B 2 together weather Penshorn said The completion of the transmission line toward the gallon ground storage tank will hinge on how much more funding the city of Marion can get If funding is approved they are a year away from getting to the Penshorn said The Marion City Council recently voted to get a contract for a Texas Community Development Program grant to help complete the project to the citys groundwater storage tank Penshom pointed out that once the project is completed it would best serve the needs of Marion residents It will double the water coming into Penshorn said It will increase the flow capacity under heavy use conditions such as fire situations in town and heavy demand The transmission line will also serve as a backup line if the current line breaks or has leak Penshorn said If that occurs at least the towns water supply would not be shut down Penshom said Mayor Glenn Hild said once the first part of the water transmission line is completed the city would have to run a test on it before it can be used I am real anxious to get water to that section of the line and see how much water flow we can get into the Hild said From what I understand we can connect and run both lines into the Hild said the city would be able to do that by connecting the new line with the current one The engineers have indicated by having this line it will enable us to get more gallons of water into the Hild said Tax bill could be before House next week ByJUANB EUZONDOJR Associated Press AUSTIN AP Inching its way toward the full House is a plan to lower local school property taxes by more than billion and pay for it with an expanded business tax and more state sales taxes The House Committee on Revenue and Public Education Funding continues work on the proposal which includes a massive rewrite of the state tax system and a constitutional amendment that would go before voters Rep Paul Sadler DHenderson said he was unsure when the bill would be voted from the committee he chairs He said he hopes to have the bill before the full House next week House Speaker Pete Laney D Hale Center has said the bill should clear the House by midApril to give it time to work its way through the Senate He has not set a deadline for the committee to complete its work The overall effort is to lower local school property taxes which Gov George W Bush and lawmakers have said are at disastrous levels The proposed tax cuts would cap the niairrteiiance portion of local school taXes on residential property at 50 cents per in value The proposal would give school districts an undetermined amount of state funding for each penny in their local tax rates up to 50 cents That amount would be set later It also would allow local voters to approve an additional 10 cents per 100 in value for a local rate up to 60 cents per value The extra 10 cents would not draw additional state funds The plan also would set a business property tax for maintenance and operation Tax rates for buildings and debt could add to the rates but may also be capped Representatives from various industries told the Committee on Monday and Tuesday that adding their wares to the list of goods and services

guy Wilson withdrew his license and it Schwab said But now we are regenerating it and again we will have another public hearing because the judge Casteel figured too much time had elapsed and that we were ready to make another Last month Casteel refused to sign a liquor license for Anderson based on the past concerns of the residents However a district judge overruled Casteels decision and ordered her to sign the liquor license which she did on March 12 Once the public hearing is finished the court will adopt parking regula tions and noparking zones in Hunter Schwab said the signs will have a noparking tow away zone He said 12 to 20 signs will be put on county roads in the area Once we get the signs out there an official deputy constable and DPS can write a ticket and have the vehicle towed and it will stand up in Schwab Commissioners Court isrexpected to adopt a resolution asking the Texas Department of Transportation to pro hibit parking along FM 1102 near Hunter and to put noparking signs there Greg Malatek interim area engi neer said he has not followed the park ing issue closely but he foresees no problems getting it done if the court approves the resolution It will have to go through the prop er Malatek said The proper channels would be the San Antonio district office We would have to look at the safe ty Malatek said It is not a horrendous problem We will work
