That’s our number one concern!’ -ROSEANN MAURER, one of Tamiga Acres' owners A second chance By Ron Maloney Staff Writer BULVERDE—The power is still on at Tamiga Acres — at least until Monday. Maria Anaya, who is raising seven children at the park west of Smithson Valley High School, said Wednesday she was hoping for the best — but wasn’t sure what would happen. She’s placed a deposit on another property, but was waiting to see what would happen at Tamiga Acres, she said. “I really would like to stay here,” Anaya said. Another park resident, Ralph Edge, said he believed the owners of the 20-acre park, Tessye Maurer and family, had turned the place around andwould be able to keep tenants in the park after Monday’s new deadline set by 274th Judicial District Judge Gary Steel. “I’m pleased,” Edge said. “It sounds like they’ve worked it out.” Under terms of an agreement reached Tuesday with District Attorney Dib Waldrip, the Maulers, who have already purchased materials and paid for an engineering plan to upgrade sewage disposal at the park and keep raw sewage from being dumped on the ground, have put up a surety bond. The Maurers must escrow with the court $159,(HK) to cover repair costs. But Roseann Maurer, one ut the owners, said Thursday the family had not yet come up with the lull amount. They’re raised about a third ol it and have another third coming from Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority in payment for a pipeline easement across their property. The final part might require a loan, she said, which the family so far has been unable lo get. “We have valuable land to secure a loan, if we could get one from someone,” she said. “T hat GBRA money is good as gold. The project See PROSLBM. Page 3A By Ron Maloney Staff Writer Task force members examining how to best help local sexual assault victims are committed to starting a specialized nursing program in Comal County. But they are divided on whether McKenna Memorial Hospital will facilitate it. The group of local health care officials, law enforcement officers and victims advocates met Wednesday and signed a letter of intent to be presented to the Office of the Attorney General, which sanctions Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) programs. “The letter states we are committed to make sure we have a certified SANE program in the community and that the service that will be provided will be optimal for victims,” McKenna Health Systems CEO Tim Brierty said after the meeting. Several task force members invited the Herald-Zeitung, but Brierty asked reporters to wait outside. The letter does not obligate McKenna to create its own program, and therein is the rub — others in the law enforcement and advocacy community believe the best way to provide the service here is for McKenna to do it.

On the day of tile cleanup, each household in the city will be allowed to dump the equivalent of one trailer-load of materials free at the Comal County landfill. “We want residents to take advantage of this opportunity to dump free at the landfill," said Don Ferguson, assistant city manager. “It’s a chance for city residents to clean up their property and get rid of materials, such as old furniture, wood, tree limbs and other bulky items, at no cost.” Ferguson said no liquids, appliances, tires, batteries or hazardous substances would be accepted. “Individuals who are unable to haul items to the landfill are asked to work with a friend, neighbor or relative,” he said. “There will be no special garbage collection in the city on the day of the cleanup, and no free commercial or contractor disposal will be allowed at the landfill." Residents should be prepared to show proof of residency with a driver's license or utility bill, Ferguson said. The landfill, located oil Ereilieit Road (I'M 1101) will be open from 8 a.m. to I p.m. “We encourage residents bringing materials to die landfill make sure their loads are tied down to keep trash from ending up on (he roadway,” Ferguson said.
