Members of SAFE marched on the State Capitol in Austin Monday blasting the amendment to grandfather hazardous waste permits filet! before June I. The amendment was later removed in a substitute bill for 1099. “We arc also very pleased that if 1099 continues to become law that it would have an impact on Lafarge in terms of the buffer zones, especially the fivc-milc buffer zone,” Pennington said.

Concerns about the legality of Wednesday night’s New Braunfels Independent School District board meeting prevented the naming of the successor to Jim Streety, who resigned last month to become athletic director and head football coach at Madison High School rn San Antonio. The naming of the Unicorns’ new athletic director is now expected at the board meeting on April 21 Wednesday’s school board meeting was changed to a briefing session be'mise notice was not posted at NBISD’s central office for the 72 hours prior to die meeting, “The meeting was posted tm Friday. Three people witnessed the posting of the meeting. But the posting was not there on Monday morning and I don’t know when it was not there after Friday,” said NR FSD Superintendent Charles Bradbury, To continue the meeting as planned would have violated the Open Meetings Act, Bradberry said. Instead, the board met behind closed doors in a briefing session to receive information from Brad berry and John Turman, principal at the high school Since the board members could not ask questions of the candidates rn the closed session, Bradberry said it would not be fair to ask the members to vote on the administration’s recommendation. “We couldn’t ask any questions tonight, and I’m assuming all of them had questions. I think the best thing to do is to bring the cartdidiate before the board,” he said “We’re simply not at the point that we can move forward and make a recommendation that all people can feel comfortable they have ail questions answered. I don’t want to ever, ever have a board member vote on something if they don’t think they have enough information."
