An agenda that is supposed to be posted 72 hours before the meeting, according to Texas Open Meeting Law, was prepared, but apparently fell from view from the front door window at the Education Center on Mill Street, Bradberry said.
Also the agenda said the meeting was a rcpdh item, and didn't spell out there was to be an executive session and an action item, which Bradberry said was an oversight.
“I’m really, really, really sorry that this got blown up in a big thing," said Raborn, who said she had wished the meeting had been cancelled and “rescheduled quietly."
Instead, Bradberry got a written response from Austin attorney Cobby A. Caputo, who said the board of trustees could, according to an attorney general's opinion, still meet in a “briefing session" behind closed doors or in the open for the sole purpose of receiving information on the persons being recommended for the two positions.
"There is one major ground rule that must be observed in such a conference," Caputo’s letter stated. “Although the members of the Board of Trustees may ask questions of you ... they may not discuss the matter amongst themselves."
The board emerged from the session and Bradberry announced that board members would talk to the potential candidates for athletic director/ football coach in more than a week and William Hollas was being recommended as principal of the sixth grade center. Formal action to be taken April 23.
Raborn said her decision to not attend the briefing should not be taken as nonsupport for the board or the positions.
“I respect our board. I have no problems with our board. We had a difference of opinion. And I respect that they did what they had to do and I hope they would respect me for doing what I felt I had to do," she said.
“I only have to be accountable to my maker,” she said. “I’m not accountable to what people think about me. I have tried to be open to the community. And if the community does not think I’m a team player and they would like to recall me that is there option."

The airport project is expected to start in October at an estimated cost of $498,750. The FFA through TDA will fund 90 percent of the project — $448,875. The remaining IO percent — $49,875 — will be funded by the New Braunfels Municipal Airport Fund. This fund is made up of money generated at the airport, from rental of airport property, gross reciepts from fixed base operators and from and agricultural lease. These revenues generated by the users and operators at the airport can only be spent on improvements or airport needs. There are no other public funds or ad valorem taxes being used in this half-million-dollar airport project, according to Assistant City Manager Hector
Grohman said: “We are very excited to make the improvement. We feel that they will improve safety and enhance the potential uses of our airport."
“We are still working on getting an instrument landing system (DLS),” Grohman said, noting that ILS “is the pivotal point in dramatically improving safety, not only for the flying public but those on the ground.
The Committee of reunion of Rural Schools, wishes to thank the public for their attendance and donations, and to all who helped serve.

Southwestern Bell Telephone Company has filed two separate applications with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to introduce two new optional directory services. One service is Directory Assistance Call Completion (DACC) and the other service is Multiple List Directory Assistance (MLDA),

The proposed rates* for fully-automated DACC calls are:
$.30 if the call is sent paid or billed to a calling card. $1.00 if the call is collect or billed to a third number and $ 25 from a coin telephone.
The proposed rates’ for semi-automated (operator assisted) DACC calls are: $ 85 for calls that are sent paid or billed to a calling card. $1.20 if the call is collect or billed to a third number and $2.60 for a person-to-person call.
Multiple List Directory Assistance (MLDA) allows the customer to request more than two listing requests per call to Directory Assistance. Customers can either call on ‘demand” and receive up to 10 listings, or schedule an ‘ appointment" and receive the assistance of a Directory Assistance operator for as long as required. The rates for “demand” MLDA are $.30 per listing request (after applicable allowances), with a maximum of 10 listing requests per call. The rates for ‘‘appointment” MLDA are $1.00 per minute, with a 15-mmute minimum.
The optional services DACC and MLDA are intended for use by both residence and business customers. Those persons who qualify for exemption of Directory Assistance charges because of visual or physical handicaps will be able to use DACC and ‘ demand” MLDA free of charge, lf approved by the commission, DACC and MLDA will be available beginning May 13, 1991. First-year projected revenues for DACC are approximately $9.6 million. First-year projected revenues for MLDA are approximately $1.7 million.
