New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 12, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Friday, August 12, 2005 BANK CONTINUED FROM Page 1A District attorney to lead investigation council, Limmer told the I Ier-ald-Zeitung she was stepping down so she could “deal with unexpected family and personal health issues." Shortly after her resignations, Limmer placed her home in the 300 block of Raven Ridge for sale. Reached at her residence Thursday evening by the I ler- ald-Zeitung, Limmer denied any knowledge of the bank’s internal investigation, saying she remains focused on family issues. A spokesman for the Texas Department of Banking said the local district attorney would take the lead in any external criminal investigation. Asked about the bank’s internal audit and whether his office had been contacted, Comal County District Attorney Dib Waldrip declined to comment Thursday for the record. Limmer, who is married to Comal County deputy sheriff Sgt. Jimmy Limmer, defeated incumbent council member Ken Valentine by 13 votes in May. Her resignation comes after serving less than three months on the city council. First Commercial Bank is headquartered in Seguin and has branches in Seguin and New Braunfels. It offers personal and business bank accounts as well as home and auto loans and investment services. The New Braunfels branch is located about a half mile west of Loop 337 on Texas 46.

CEMEX CONTINUED FROM Page 1A State agency must approve plans estimates of how much the new facility improvements will impact the surrounding air and water supply. Mark Gould, with TCEQ, said the agency had not started its technical review of the data but noted the plant’s estimated change in allowable pollutants was below the level required to trigger an Environmental Protection Agency review. “These are not major modifications, according to EPA standards, which is a good thing,” he said. Gould also* noted Cemex was offering to do voluntary control device upgrades for the new and existing kilns and cooler. The expansion also will include selective non-catalyt-ic reduction to ensure the total oxides of nitrogen emissions from both kilns does not exceed 2,801 tons per year. “The fact that they’re doing this voluntarily, before we asked diem to, is a good sign,” Gould said. “This whole process is designed to prevent the area from having bad pollution.” Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Director Rusty Brockman said he was confident Cemex would continue to be a good corporate neighbor, even after its extensive growth. “I’m not one for smokestacks, by which I mean irre- DAVID INGRAM Herald-Zeitung A proposed $25 million expansion would double the size of the Cemex plant in New Braunfels. sponsible plants, but thus is a clean operation. They are responsible and have complied with all TCEQ permit requests in the past,” he said. “They do their part to manage their operation.” Brockman said he had not spoken to Cemex representatives about the expansion since the canceled public announcement, but was glad to hear their plans had not changed. Comal County Commissioner Jay Millildn said Cemex had notified him several weeks ago about the ongoing plans. “I’m not overjoyed with the expansion because it does have a potential for additional pollution,” he said. “But growth, like we’re experiencing here in Comal County, drives the need for cement.” While somewhat comforted by Cemex’s “strong internal controls” against pollution, Minikin said he would be keeping his eye on its operations. Guenther was not so sanguine about what the expansion plans would mean for his daily existence. “They’re choking us with cement dust now. You can feel it on your skin,” he said, rubbing his hand up and down his ami. Although the Guenthers lived in their modest home long before the plant came to town, the elderly man said he might consider moving. “As soon as they start blowing more dust, I’ll be in touch with diem,” he said. “Maybe they’ll buy my house so I can get on out of here.” TEXAS LOTTBIY SATURDAY LOTTO Jackpot: $36 million 1-10-19-35-42 BB 40 WEDNESDAY LOTTO Jackpot: $36 million 18-2437-41-43 BB 10 CASH FIVE 15 23-29 32 34 MEGA MILLIONS 13-35-3643-52 IYE 5 Megapter 4 PICK 3 Day Night 0-5-7 2-9-1 TEXAS TWO-STEP 3-4-14-29 BB 28 IIIIX COITNTRY CHAPT] ,.i 11,, Coastal Tonsf nation Aswxiatiiin 11th Annual Banquet August 18th • 6:00PM @ Seguin Coliseum Ticket Prices: Individual - $60; Tables - $600 (IO people); Bull Red Tables - $1,000 • Catered by port Strange VT.
