(,'ounty judge Sherman Krause said Tuesdav that (ommissioners will likc'ly forgo assessing an etonomii penalty against Hayward Baker Geotechnuai ( onstriK tion for not completing the foundation h\ the agreed-to Aug. 7 date. I fayvvard Baker's work has bec'n siowc'fi l)v unex|M*( tc^ly tough ground conditions at the dam site along I>y Comal Creek west of Nc'w Braunfels. A [)ro[)osed contrac t change order would give* fhc' firm until Nov. 2 5 for wraf) up its work. “That c ompletion date is what they said the'y could meet," Krause said. Under the current $4.8 million contract, h(> said, th(> county could levy a monetary [)enalty, or "licjuidated damages," against the firm for not mc’eting its deadline "But the change order would extend the amount of time Hayward Baker has to complc’te the project, which means the county would not assi»ss those liquidated damages," Krause said. "If we were to extend, the commissioners would l)e lcK)king at it from the standpoint that Hayward Baker has made the effort to complete the project and even when they ran into difficulties they continued to try to find solutions to those' {)rob-lems." A second contrac tor is hc‘ing sought to build the ac tual dam. HIDDEN HISTORY NAME OF SUBJECT FairgrouncJs Trees BACKGROUND Once the crowds leave Comal County Fairgrounds, the main attractions are the trees that were specially planted between 1993-2000 Large cedars and oaks came with the Common Street property, but James Smith, who grows pecan seedlings on his Marion farm, got the idea that the fairgrounds needed more trees. Smith was not a member of Comal County Fair Association, but he linked up with Wilfred Voges, CCFA Grounds Committee chairman, and Russell McDonald, a director "We decided more trees wouldn't hurt," Voges said More than 100 young trees were donated from Smith's farm and Maldonado Nursery in New Braunfels, or bought in Bastrop Along the midway from the front gate, pecan trees were added Oak varieties were planted along fence lines and in the carnival site Others were put in behind the rodeo and tractor-pull areas. CCFA raised money for the project by selling $25 "memorial plaques" for each tree. Time has weathered or destroyed the plastic plaques, but some names are visible: Blalock, Oberkampf, Voges, McDonald, Schumann, Staats, Startz and PeVey.
