Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home in New Braunfels Legislature races against clock AUSTIN (AP) — The item that got the most attention Thursday in the Texas Legislature wasn’t the stack of bills yet to be heard. It wasn’t the unfinished two-year budget or the slew of meetings still to be had. As legislators worked feverishly they kept one eye carefully on the clock — a constantly ticking reminder of the deadlines cutting off their ability to make new laws. The House had to pass all of its bills by midnight and was expected to work into Friday morning to get through a calendar of more than 320 bills. The Senate was working toward today’s deadline cutting off committees. The 140- day session ends May 28. Any bills that miss those marks — and arguably those that inched through the process at the last minute Thursday — are tagged for the legislative graveyard. “We’re sliding to the end on track,” said Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-Houston. Roinrovens SUN 4PM MAY BTH NO COVER Tom Gillam FR!

Zoeller Funeral Home did not exist this past year when general manager Dale Yates was blasting STGCD and county government in interviews and in a letter to CLWSC customers. In the Sept. 13 letter to customers, Yates took a swipe at Comal County commissioners for not inviting representatives of his company — the second-largest water utility in the county — to be represented on the county committee that drafted the new subdivision regulations. He also said the CLWSC was not in favor of a groundwater conservation district in western Comal County. Such a district would provide no additional water but would raise taxes, he said. In September, County Judge Danny Scheel told the Canyon Lake Times-Guardian he was saddened by the letter — and that before it was published, he hadn’t been aware that CLWSC wanted to be part of the county’s Waterwise Growth Study Committee. All the CLWSC had to do was call him, he said. The CLWSC did call Scheel, and worked with the Waterwise committee on the new subdivision rules. None of the previous acrimony appeared on Thursday. Precinct I Commissioner Jack Dawson praised the report prepared by CLWSC and praised the company’s general manager. ‘You’ve convinced me you have plenty of water,” Dawson said. “I think this report is just outstanding. “I can see in this report how you have changed your mind about the groundwater conservation district,” Dawson said. CLWSC attorney John Houchins said the water supplier has planned for the future, and its ratepayers have spent millions supporting a conversion from Trinity Aquifer water to surface water. CLWSC is interested in groundwater conservation, and has proved it, he said. Scheel pressed Houchins on the September letter. “I was greatly distressed by that letter,” Scheel said-“The CLWSC does recognise? the need for a groundwater conservation district...?” I *■ “For conservation, certain-' ly,” Houchins answered. “We. have spent millions convert-; ing to surface water.” » Scheel said, “I think what we have to recognize is there are thousands of people itt western Comal County who’ are not in a position to con-, vert to surface water, and the: groundwater conservation district is of vital importance. to them.”    . Right now, CLWSC gets 58 percent of its water suppl^f-from 40 groundwater wells-; punched into the Trinity Aquifer. The remainder comes from surface water now under contract fro«x-GBRA.    :• Nkw Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Published on Sunday mornings and weekday mornings Tuesday through Friday by the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (USPS 377-880) 707 Landa St., or PO.
