President Slobodan Milosevic’s forces have purged Kosovo of300,000 ethnic Albanians so far, with perhaps an equal number soon to follow. The sea of misery threatened to destabilize neighboring states, already struggling to provide the refugees with basic necessities such as food, water and shelter. Serbian television reported that NATO airstrikes on Saturday had destroyed the Freedom Bridge at Novi Sad, Serbia’s second-largest city. The span is a major artery between the capital of Belgrade and Yugoslavia’s northern agricultural and industrial region. The independent Beta news agency said seven persons on the bridge ii MILOSEVIC were injured in the strike, some seriously. Another independent agency, FoNet, reported that the attack left Novi Sad without water. The bridge is the second highway bridge in Novi Sad destroyed this week. NATO missiles knocked out a key bridge in the city on Thursday, blocking traffic on the waterway. Saturday’s attack left only a railroad bridge in the city of 500,000.

Be sure to check that clock Bv Chais Crews Staff Writer lf you did not prepare for daylight-saving time before going to sleep Saturday night, the day at hand might present a few problems. Don’t be surprised if you’re late for many of the important events this Easter Sunday. You will probably be alone at the church after services end. You might miss hanging around the kitchen, absorbing the rich aromas and sali vating over the Easter dinner that will be ready later in the day. But hey, you will have an opportunity to try to figure out how to change the clocks in your car and on your VCR. And if anyone makes sport of you for your lack of preparation, be sure to ask about what you missed. Daylight time ends on October 31. In Indiana, the answer isn’t so simple — especially this weekend. When dawn broke today in the Hoosier state, it might be Central Standard Time, Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight Time — depending on where you are. While most of the nation welcomes daylight-saving time by nudging their clocks ahead one hour, most of Indiana will skip the switch altogether, keeping their clocks on Eastern Standard Time. In southeastern Indiana, five breakaway counties will make the saving-time switch to keep synchronized with nearby Cincinnati and Louisville.

Master plan revisions up for review By Heather Togo Staff Writer Residents will have another opportunity to give their two cents about the revised comprehensive plan for New Braunfels development in the new millennium. A number of revisions to the master plan, including changes to land use and zoning and transportation policies, are •et for discussion at a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the municipal building, 424 S. Casted Ave. Assembled in part from public input by 330 residents serving on nine sub-committees, the latest version of the plan was revised by the city’s consulting firm, Wilbur Smith Associates, Inc., after a March 16 forum. The city hired the national consulting firm in 1997 to write a plan recommending how to manage its resources through 2020. During the last discussion on the master plan, several residents, including sub-committee members who worked on land use and zoning policies and transportation recommendations, said the proposed document could use revision. “The biggest concerns seemed to be with the land use planning and the thoroughfare planning. We’ve addressed all those concerns and changed the verbage in some of those areas,” said Harry Bennett, director of planning for the city. Wilbur Smith Associates project manager Mike McAnelly said recent changes to all chapters of the master plan were based on latest recommendations and comments made by residents and the planning and zoning commission. “Any changes approved by the city council and the city’s planning commission were made in the plan,” he said. McAnelly said specific changes had been made to commercial use categories in the land use and zoning chapter. The firm added a fourth commercial use category — river-oriented mixed-use — to the three See PLAN/5A Meeting WHO: New Braunfels City Council WHAT: Master plan forum WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Thursday WHERE: New Braunfels Municipal Building, 424 S.

Faith messages By Heather Tooo Staff Writer New Braunfels residents from a cross section of denominations congregated this morning to celebrate Easter Sunday — the holiest day in the Christian year. Members of First Baptist Church, 733 Cross St., gathered to observe Resurrection Sunday. Across the street, members of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 312 E. Guenther, celebrated the Holy Eucharist. The celebration of Jesus Christ’s death and Resurrection may have different names, but the message always is the same. “For all Christians, the Easter message that Christ is Risen is the heart of our faith,” said Pastor Gary ROfMN COANETT/Heratt-Zwtung Above, Johnny Diaz, playing the role of Jesus, carries the cross during a Good Friday Passion play at Holy Family Church, 245 S.

Christians celebrate Easter with different methods, same purpose Lange of Peace Lutheran Church. “In terms of processionals and the music itself, different practices can be seen in different denominations, but for each of us, the Easter morning event proves that Jesus is who he says He is.” Msgr. Eugene O’Callaghan of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church said the recognition and celebration of Jesus’ death and Resurrection was a common ground for all Christians. “It is the apex of our belief. Itfc the most important day of the year for all Christians,” he said. New Braunfels youth felt the Easter message of hope, joy, and peace on a more personal level this past week by sharing in the pageantry of Easter and witnessing long-held traditions of their faiths. Students in Debbie Engel’s 4-year-old class at New Braunfels Christian Academy, a multi-denominational Christian school, recalled Jesus’ walk to the cross on Thursday after learning the Easter story.
