   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 14, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 Page 2A  Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, May 14, 2011     Motorists          share the    II      road as    *      two lanes    *      continue    t*.      to be          closed    n      Friday for          the          Walnut          Avenue          widening          project.          LAURA          Mckenzie    IÜ pii      Herald-          Zeitung         Walnut work continues next week  From staff reports  Workers on the Walnut Avenue Reconstruc tion Project this week built the forms they’ll use to pour the new section of the deck of the Dry Comal Creek Bridge.  They'll begin tying steel for the deck as soon as elevations are verified, said Octavio Garza, assistant city engineer.  The bridge is being enlarged to allow for a 10-foot- wide sidewalk/hike-and-  bike trail on the east side of the bridge and a 5-foot-wide sidewalk on the west side. Ihe bridge will retain its four 12-foot-wide vehicle lanes as well.  Elsewhere:  • Garza said crews this week also completed wastewater and water line work on busy West San Antonio Street.  But Thursday’s rain prevented technicians from installing the needed traffic control to shift traffic lanes on West San Antonio.  “We will install the last link of stormwater line early next week," Garza said.  •Work will continue on the new lanes between the Dry Comal Creek and Elliott Knox next week.  • Construction of the stormwater line from Dry Comal Creek toward Landa Street will also continue next week.  The $27.8 million project began last fall and is expected to take about three years to complete.  Clarification ^ ss * stant  ^ p° sts to °  muc h on Facebook  The editorial, "Dismal early voter turnout is concerning" in the May 13 edition, stated that "under Texas law, in order to get a referendum on the ballot, petitioners must collect 10 percent of the votes cast in the last citywide election."  This is correct in some cases.  But the city charter was changed in 2005 to say, "Qualified voters of the City of New Braunfels may initiate legislation by submitting a petition addressed to the city council which requests the submission of a proposed ordinance to a vote of the qualified voters of the city. Said petition must be signed by qualified voters of the city equal in number to five percent of the number of registered voters in the city."  Petitioners must research the specifics of their potential ballot issue to determine the correct number of signatures needed.  By Ron Maloney  Seguin Gazette Enterprise  SEGUIN — Next time Assistant District Attorney Dtrry Bloomquist conducts a trial, he probably won’t talk about it on Facebook.  Wednesday, 274th Judicial I district Judge Gary Steel held the veteran prosecutor in contempt of court for com-ments he posted on his Facebook page in the wake of the trial of David Brasse and Samantha A. Britain, die Schertz couple who were found guilty on manslaughter charges in connection with the death of Brasse's daughter, Sarah, who died of appendicitis in 2009.  The posting, placed hours  after the April 11 verdict was announced, violated an order by Steel early in the trial not to comment about the case on Facebook while the proceedings were under way.  Steel issued that order after defense attorneys protested a posting by Bloomquist announcing the start of the trial.  In his posting after the verdict, Bloomquist called the verdicts a “happy ending.’’ And that was the problem. While Bloomquist, who works for 25th Judicial District Attorney Heather Miller, had secured a conviction in a very emotional case, it was-n't yet over — Brasse and Britain are still to be sentenced.
