New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 4, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Wednesday, May 4, 2005 districts CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Krueger, Wommack agree on many issues Krueger and Wommack agree on a surprising number of issues. They both support impact fees, although Wommack wants to distinguish between what he calls “high density developers” and local developers. They both favor renovating the existing civic center, but say the proposed $11 million plan should be scaled back. They both believe the city needs a sign and landscape ordinance, and both believe the needs of local residents should outweigh the emphasis on tourism. One of the big differences is in experience, although both are first-time candidates. Wommack’s youth was evident early in his campaign when he was hit hard with several controversies, including questions over whether he met the residency require-ment. There also was an issue over an extension to his home he was building and whether he had a city building permit for the work. Wommack feels he settled the residency issue, and in fact went out of his way to provide the Herald-Zeitung with a utility bill to show he lived in District 5. Krueger has never had an elected office, but she has spent her life around politics at all stages and has been an active member of the community after moving back five years ago. She has served on several boards and commissions and hopes to move to council. To hear the candidates speak, the real choice the voters may have to make is who they relate to more. Wommack said he is a “working man” in a working man’s district, while Krueger points to her 22 years in the district and her ability to speak Spanish in a district that is more than 50 percent Hispanic. “I’m a person who can more understand their needs,” Wommack said. "I work on a daily basis. I know what the priorities of these families are. I think I have a unique ability to communicate with my constituents.” Both candidates say they are enjoying campaigning. They say meeting and listening to the residents in District 5 has changed their lives. They also say they truly hope to be the choice when voters have the final say Saturday. “I hope to be a decision maker for District 5,” Krueger said. “I’m not afraid to make decisions." “This has been one of the best experiences in my life,” Wommack said. “I’ve enjoyed getting to know people and becoming a part of their lives.” SAMI S V Fine Jewelry MOTHERS DAY • GRADUATION • BIRTHDAY SALE Tuesday - Thursday 10:00 - 4:00 or by Appt. 472 W.

Powell said Matt doesn’t know much because the Marine Corps doesn’t say. For Beversdorf, it’s probably a little worse. I ler son said little or nothing while he was home between tours except to mention an instance where someone shot at his convoy when he was riding in the back of a canvas-sided truck, and watching over a friend who had seen another buddy violently killed. “I Ie tells you almost nothing, but you want to know everything,” she said. Suchy started the group a year ago at about the time Americans were learning that the price of peace in Iraq would be far higher than the cost in lives of the war that liberated the country from Saddam Hussein. “I formed the group when my son was in Iraq,” said Suchy. “I needed somebody to talk to, and I couldn’t find a support group anywhere. Finally, it came to me that there may be one other person out there who needed this too, and they were waiting for me to start it.” The group is open to anyone, whether they have a family member away in the military or not. Charlotte Boyd, who has attended every meeting, doesn’t have a family member at war — not at this war. But she’s been going to meetings to support Suchy, and is likely to continue. “People may not need support, but they can come and give support to others,” Powell said. And that’s what Suchy will do, even though her soldier is home. “ITI come to these meetings as long as anyone needs them,” she said. “My heart and soul is in this.” For information, call 625-9144, ext. 226. = Cleaning For Your Health • Cleaning For Your Health Dryer vent and air duct cleaning.

HI ^ r giJgo tv mw dytvc/ttedjctltcni VISA National Day of Prayer Thursday Thursday is National Day of Prayer, a time for people to pause and give thanks or offer supplications for their country and community. New Braunfels pastors will gather at noon at the Plaza to pray through specific categories of need. “We believe prayer is what God uses to go to action,” said First Protestant Teaching Pas tor Tim Judkins. “Everything we do should be bathed in prayer." All community members are invited to Thursday’s event, but Judkins encouraged people who could not attend to pause and pray wherever they were. The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952.
