alcohol can be just as dangerous as any drug. “We get more kids killed from alcohol than anything else...and if you don’t think alcohol is a drug, your’e only fooling yourself,” he said.
“If your kid is killed by a drunk driver or gets drunk and gets killed himself, he’s just as dead. We have people getting killed in this community and if we don’t do something about it. we have no one to blame but ourselves,” Heimer said.
Oliver Stambaugh, a drug abuse counselor who grew up in New Braunfels, shared the story of how high school drinking in New Braunfels turned into a life of alcoholism and pain. He said when he was growing up in New Braunfels, he was a “good old boy.” He went to the high school parties and he drank a lot of beer and lost a friend who was killed due to drunk driving.
“I didn’t know I had a problem back then I w as one of those kids who said, It ll never happen to me ' I liked to party and I didn’t see anything wrong with that," he said.
“I just wanted to let you know dependency can happen to anybody. It can happen to a 9-year-old or a 39-year-old Addictive and compulsive behavior is very popular and New Braunfels is no different I never heard anything about alcoholism when I w as grow ing up I would really like to see it be okay for kids to say no to drugs.” Stam
Drug Enforcement Agency officer Dave Quilter told those present the most important thing they can do is to face reality.
The agent lives in New- Braunfels and is in charge of drug enforcement activities in San Antonio and throughout the area He said this community is no different from others across the country and residents can’t hide from the fact that drugs are here.
“It's here on the streets of New Braunfels. My agents have bought LSD on the streets of New Braunfels. My agents have bought cocaine on the streets of New Braunfels.” he said
“We can’t say ‘Not my kid.’ That’s where the commitment (to preventing drug abuse) begins,” he said. Quilter added local residents can’t blame the proximity to the Mexico border for the influx of drugs “We have to blame our problem on the demand that’s been created in New Braunfels You could put another 10.000 DEA agents on the streets and it would do nothing to reduce the demand." he said
“We have to look beyond the immediate problem which are drugs and alcohol and say Why are the kids, the young adults commiting themselves to such danger There s only one answer — they can’t cope.” Quilter said
Dr Mark Statler. a local pediatrician, said one of the solu turns for keeping children from turning to drugs is to "tell them you love them unconditionally and tell them often ’’

perty for about IO others Comal CAD appraises property in Bexar. Hays. Kendall and Guadalupe as well as Comal County in its entirety
While cities such as New Braunfels can agree by law to abate taxes for industrial development purposes and or arrange for cash in lieu of taxes agreements, other entities such as school districts, water and other special use districts cannot Smaller taxing entities such as Edwards Underground Water District or others can lose crucial revenue through too-low or otherwise unreported value
Many of the firms. Rhodes said. accurately render or have accurate ap praisals in all likelihood. Some may not and others such as the one mentioned above may have escaped appropriate taxation because of a lack of accurate appraisals Rhodes stressed that none of the firms cited in the Pickett contract are considered derelict in cooperating in the appraisal process for the 1987 88 tax year CAD appraisers statewide routinely negotiate values for real property, raw materials and per sonal property as well as values for open space or land used for agricultural purposes that is not directly concerned with a firms physical plant

growth and development is in the best interests of the community as a whole
Biglev was non-commital Rhoads said special interests often take precedence over the intention of a zoning ordinance to benefit the greatest number of citizens.
In general, the eight agreed that at specific times in the city’s recent history, the desire for commercial development has run co inter to municipal policies
A zoning ordinance is a part of what this city uses to control where and what kinds of development occur within the city limits and its two mile extraterritorial jurisdiction Two major cities in the stale that do not use zoning for land use controls are Houston and Wichita Falls
“There has been no long-range planning at all," Arnold said The comment drew a round of general agreement from tin* non incumbent panel Kaderli went so far as to say that whoever is elected Saturday “they will have to li\e with what this council has not done keep up with inflation They will have to use com mon sense and flexibility to deal w ith it ”
“You’re going to haw seven sub jective viewpoints You can't give seven separate people authority to
run the city.” Pacharzina said Day-to-day municipal operations are not the responsibility of the city council and the eight non-incumbents agreed that their roles, if elected, would be to set specific policy and again returned to the city manager’s role, which by consensus indicated a desire for a stronger manager
The candidates appear united in feeling a stronger role by the manager will allow whoever holds the job to be judged on merit rather than political reputation The can didates throughout several public and civic forums have said the manager should exercise ad ministrative power to a greater extent
Henry said, “I’m shocked no one has asked the hard questions about the budget where is the line item. where is the money being spent0 Kaderli questioned the city's fiscal management, while Castillo said he believes there remain places where the citn may be able to trim costs and maintain a level of service accep table to the citizens
All stressed that citizens need to realize that three council seats are to tx* decided and with nine candidates in the running and people Noting on In tor one or two candidates rather than casting three votes for separate individuals would defeat the purpose of at large representation
