The parte has been closed since January 1995 for die repairs and improvements. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will change the park from a multi-use one to a day-use park only. The change was made to accommodate families, Canyon Lake Reservoir Manager Jerry Brite said. “We converted Comal Park to a day-use park for several reasons,” Brite said. “First, we were having problems with unruly crowds and rowdiness. A lot of these acts were going on among die mid teen to mid 30’s age group, usually single adults, who are our primary users. We had a lot of alcoholic abuse and some drug abuse, which contributed to fighting.” Brite said Comal Park is die most popular park on the lake because of its beach area and it is one of the Closest to San Antonio. Brite said the Corps of Engineers is not trying to scare die mid teen to mid 30 age group from going to Comal Park, it is just trying to make it safer to bring families back to die park. “We aren’t trying to target or eliminate these (mid teen-mid 30’s age group) users, we are just trying to accommodate than in a safe manner,” Brite said. “We are going to do this by eliminating overnight camping and closing the park by dark... Our objective is to restore order so that the park is acceptable for family use.” For the past 16 months, contractors, landscapers and laborers have been making these improvements: redoing the road network in the park, constructing a new gate house (entrance), expanding the swim- We will eliminate the continuous loop cruising effect ... This will reduce traffic (on the roads) and increase safety.’ — Jerry Brite _Canyon Lake Reservoir manager ming beach area, paving a new parking lot near the beach, making the rest rooms better, putting up a rinse shower, putting up fences, fixing up pipes, installing    Corps' ^strict offices in both Behen Mid Fort Worth. A strip of land will separate the beach from the parking lot. Originally, the parking lot was at the beach, and Brite said this move was made so that families could enjoy the beach better. “The problem we had was people were driving up there and putting their music boxes on their cars,” Brite said. We want to get people away from the parking lot and put diem near die lake and the swimming area. We are not allowing loitering in parking lot area. If we see anybody loitering, they will be asked to go to the picnic sites, the beach or leave the area.We don't want crowds in the parking lot were you will have a lot of cars and pedestrians.” In next several years, Brite said he hopes the Corps will be able to put in volleyball courts, a softball field and a concrete basketball court when funding becomes available. Brite said plans for the rehabilitation of Comal Park were made in the summer of 1994 with the a new informational sign system and making trails; placing picnic tables, installing safety features and gate controls, adding parking spaces, and making toilets aid showers ADA (American with Disabilities Act) accessible. “You will see a change in the road network,” Brite said. “We will eliminate die continuous loop “cruising” effect and make the road branch into specific areas. This will reduce traffic (on the roads) and increase safety.” ‘TUteitty-four lakes in the Fort Worth district assisted us in rehabilitating Comal Park,” Brite said. “Some of them gave us from the low side of $10,000 while others contributed as high as $ 100,000.1 give credit to the lakes because they gave up some of their annual operational funds to contribute to the rehabilitation of Comal Park." The boat ramps will still be open in the park for $2 per boat per day. Day user fees will be $1 per person and $3 for three people and up. Texas Today Morata Says WW# Repaying Loan; Amount Of Debt SIHI I Inflater S HOUSTON (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Victor Morales says his wife must only pay $9,000 of hor long outstanding college scholarship grant, although documents he showed reporters indicated she still (owes $27,000. • Morales could not explain die discrepancies in the amounts his wife, Parti, owes the Indian Health Service. He told the Houston Chronicle on Monday that the only payment the federal government now wants is $9,000. “We have a clear conscience,” Morales said in Austin. “They're now saying... this is the fee. This is what you owe the United States government, and we say that’s what’s fair.” Dani Morales has refused for 15 years to repay the money because she and her husband have claimed she was being overcharged. It became a public issue during a runoff for the Democratic nomination when U.S. Rep. John Bryant called Morales an unfit Senate candidate because of the outstanding debt Mrs. Morales took the money from the Indian Health Service with the agreement she would work on an Indian reservation after graduation. Cat Restraint Provision Mtetets Stiff Opposition FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Fort Worth City Council is trying to do something about a growing feline population, but hundreds of residents have called in to complain that a “cat leash law” would be a cat-astro-phe. The council was scheduled to vote on the proposal today, but one councilman said he hasn’t seen much support for a measure calling for the restraint of cats. “The rekction of my colleagues seems tribe ‘This is stupid* to 'It ain’t going to work,”' councilman Chuck Silcox said. Calls to his office were runninf 3-to-l against the provision, he said. Councilman Jim Lane said he received more than IOO calls from opponents of the measure. City health officials said the proposal has been misunderstood. They said it requires cats to be confined to their owners’ property and is not meant to force cats to be on a leash at all times.
