Management Professionals In New Braunfels home sales on the rise ByJOHND McCLAIN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON AP Fresh signs of a robust economy emerged Friday but they fed concerns about a new round of inflation The Commerce Department repotted that consumer spending shot up percent in July fastest in six months while sales of new homes rose percent the third straight advance At the same time the Purchasing Management Association of Chicago said its index of area business activity rose to percent in August more than recovering a slight drop to percent in July A reading above 50 percent indicates the manufacturing sector is expanding The reports preceded a roller coaster day on Wall Street The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 104 points in early trading dropping below for the first time since June 26 By midmorning it recovered all the loss only to slip again before turning up again in early afternoon Bond prices also were lower amid fears the continued economic growth could spur the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates later this year to prevent prices from spiraling upward The kind of growth were seeing and are likely to see is eventually going to be too strong for the contended economist Richard Bemer of the Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh The domestic economy is fundamentally extremely strong and the threat that inflation could rise is with Still analysts found

Agency finds many problems with Union Pacifics safety ByDAWNFALLJK Associated Press Writer OMAHA Neb AP Many of Union Pacifics safety problems have one simple cause its employees are exhausted the Federal Rail Administration chief says Jolene M Molitoris said preliminary results of a safety inspection of the nations largest railroad showed dangerous train maneuvers dispatcher errors and missing freight information were the norm Her agency is midway through a 10day systemwide revievy of Union Pacific Railroad prompted by a recent series of train wrecks that killed seven people Sheer fatigue is at the root of many errors Molitoris said Wednesday You have people who are working 7 days a week 12plus hours a day with no time off When you are that tired it makes top performance and safety assurance she said And that schedule isnt just for a week or so its Molitoris met with Union Pacific President Jerry Davis who said the company plans to hire new workers by the years end to help ease the heavy workload He added that employees are limited by federal laws to working 12hour days We will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes until we are running the safest railroad in the United Davis said Hiring more employees also would allow more dispatchers to take road trips as part of ongoing training Davis said The company had been criticized for training dispatchers through videos instead of letting them see the actual routes He said the company would organize a safety team to address FRA concerns and hold a safety summit Getting a good nights rest wont solve all of Union Pacifics problems Some dispatcher errors showed a basic misunderstanding of railroad rules Molitoris said She pointed to a recent situation in which a dispatcher talked a through moves against the currentof traffic a violation of federal and company rules that require written approval for such a movement Davis said the mistake could have resulted in a collision if it had not been immediately corrected Union Pacific has said the merger with Southern Pacific last year has not affected productivity But Molitoris said supervisors are 36 overloaded with administrative duties that they were not performing required routine safety checks on trains The FRA inspection is to end next week Molitoris said her agency will continue to work with Union Pacific on safety issues Looking for
