New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 22, 2001, New Braunfels, Texas City takes another swing at golf plans By Amy Clarkson Staff Writer New Braunfels City Council once again will consider raising golf course fees and restructuring the finances and advisory board during a meeting on Monday. Council meets at 6:30 p.m. in the municipal building, 424 S. Castell Ave. Landa Golf Course Manager Ward Watson asked council to raise the fees, eliminate annual passes and restructure the course. The biggest change, in Watson’s opinion, is the request to put all the funds from the course into an enterprise fund. Council members delayed the decision on the golf course, saying they didn’t have enough information. In a letter to council, Watson wrote he believed the plan was both fair and strong. “Do not hesitate to compare us withSee GOLF/5A Seguin fire investigation stops short of any answers By Ron Maloney Staff Writer SEGUIN — The state investigation into the cause of a fire that destroyed a Seguin landmark on Tuesday ended without answers Friday night. Conflicting interests of two state agencies — one to determine the cause of the blaze and the other to safeguard the health of the investigators — ground the investigation to a halt, sources said. At 8:30 p.m. Friday, State Fire Marshal’s Office Chief Investigator Dennis Richter said he did not know what caused the predawn fire that gutted Vivroux Hardware, which operated for 132 years in the IOO block of South Austin Street. “We’re done,” Richter said. “We were unable to make a determination on the cause of the fire.” Richter was one of IO state investigators from as far as Corpus Christi, Conroe, Boerne, Gonzales, Austin and NewSee FIRE/5A “I don’t want her to be like her mom, like I used to be.

For 16-year-old Jennifer, WINGS for Life offers her a chance to be a good parent to 13-month old Tiana. It also gives her the chance to be with her daughter and out of prison. Jennifer, days away from her “graduation,” lives at WINGS while studying for her G.E.D. and learning to care for her daughter. WINGS is an acronym for “Women In Need of Greater Strength,” program director Lori Haselwood said. Haselwood, the center’s third director in a year, said the program strives to break bad habits and encourage good decisions and good parenting. “This is not just another place to do time,” Haselwood said. “(What) we stress here is obviously, a change in lifestyle, a place to grow as an individual and as a parent.”See PROGRAM/10A n a modest ranch in rural Guadalupe County, families are brought together as teen-agers learn to be moms. ^ I TiV v '• •-* , •' . * p* ♦ Jr’ -4    *    v    if    „ ■ii *.***»■ it AMY CLARKSON/Herald-ZeitungDeveloper Jerry Ford sees this grove of trees as “Cotton Crossing,” an area of neighborhoods, shops, an office complex and a cultural arts center, among other things. ‘Cotton Crossing’ dreams closer to reality By Amy Clarkson Staff Writer Where there are only sunflower fields and taU grass, developer Jerry Ford sees neighborhoods, shops and a cultural arts center. Ford’s vision for a planned unit development called Cotton Crossing on Gruene Road, is entering another phase of development. Construction starts soon on a two-story office complex on Gruene Road. Ford already has received phone calls from interested doctors and dentists who want to put their offices in the building. He also has talked to one retailer — whom he declined to name — that might take up 10,000 of the 30,000 square feet planned for the building. “The plans are pretty ambitious,” Ford said. “But it can be done. With the right investors, it can be done, and it can be done in the foreseeable future.” Driving around the development, Ford pointed out places where he hoped to place a restaurant, a winery and a cultural arts center. He has spent years working to develop the land and sees the office complex as just one of many steps toward making his dream a reality. “I guess we started in 1998,” he said. “And now we’re seeing another phase started. It’s good news.” The office complex is one of many plans Ford has for the tract of land. He envisions a complete neighborhood with parks, ponds and a hiking trail, which wouldSee CROSSING/5A Inside Abby................................2C Classifieds.........................1-12D Comics.............................4B Lifestyle.......................1C Forum.................................6A Local/Metro........................4A Movies.................................2C Obituaries.........................3A Sports...........................1-3B Today.................................2A Stocks..................................8A Key Code 77 ;
