New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 24, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas I g Thursday July Senior center cancels vet van service Obituaries By CKrtIS CREWS Writer In an attempt to bridle mounting losses incurred by its transportation service the Senior Citizens Center will raise prices for local trips and eliminate one service entirely Effective Aug 1 the center will charge for each oneway trip for such essential services as medical appointments and grocery shopping and for nonessential trips such as social events A charge of 50 cents per mile will be in effect for trips t farther than 10 miles The current price is per trip plus the 50cent permile charge for trips farther than 10 miles The center is eliminating a service which carried local veterans to military hospitals in San Antonio for per trip According to budget documents provided by the senior center the transportation service lost in 1996 and projected a loss in 1997 if current expense rates continued Senior Citizens Center Board President Marie Dawson said the transportation service was provided for seniors and citizens with disabilities She said she regretted that the service reduction and rate increases were necessary but budget considerations made them inevidable The transportation service is very Dawson said Well do whatever we have to to keep the program Local veteran activist Manuel Camareno said he was grateful to the senior center for providing the service as long as it did but the loss puts many veterans in a difficult position The veterans are back to square Camareno said The veterans will have to go back to the county commissioners and the county judge and once again discuss the Camareno said he and other veterans petitioned the court earlier this year for a vehicle to transport veterans to the San Antonio medical facilities a service he said was offered free of charge for veterans in Hays County County officials confirmed Camarenos claim that he was told that it was unconstitutional for the county to provide a service specifically for one segment of the population Camareno said the Alamo Area Council of Governments offers a van to San Antonio for veterans and senior citizens for per trip He said some veterans cannot afford the charge and the AACOG service would not transport Canyon Lake Veterans to the Veterans Administration hospital in Kerrville County Judge Carter Casteel said though she sympathized with the veterans they still had access to medical care through AACOG She said a countyowned van exclusively for veterans was probably not a viable option I guess the county could go into the transportation business if the taxpayers will pay for Casteel said Lake From Page 1 Debbie Drum of the Lakeview Lodge said she had a few cancellations within the last few weeks because of a column in a Houston newspaper that reported that all of Canyon Lakes recreational activities were affected by the floods We managed to fill the rooms of the people we Drum said We lost only six to seven night bookings in a two to three week Drum also lost business because of the Chronicle article she said Drum said there were still many activities for her guests to take advantage of at the lake and in the area The only negative thing is that people who wanted to tube the Guadalupe cant afford a raft she said So we send them to the Comal and they have been happy with the trip A lot of people come here to get away from it all and they can still swim and feed the Jerry Brite Canyon Lake reservoir manager said it would take more than a week before the lake got down to conservation pool level We got some projections It appears that as early as tonight we will be at 920 feet above sea level which will be I 1 feet above conservation pool 909 feet above sea Our projections are we will get down to elevation at 911 feet above sea level which will be the second or third of Brite said assessment teams from the Corps of Engineers were assessing the damage at all the parks He said the parks had received considerable debris damage and that Corps personnel had been cleaning up signs and table sites when they can get to
