education system then, and still is today.
Williamson, 43, said it is “a golden opportunity" to move back to the area. He said the community has an excellent education system that would be ideal for his son, who will be entering high school next year.
If hired, Williamson said there are three things he can offer NBISD. He said he has a strong educational background, quality experience and a strong commitment.
“I already have a real deep commitment to the district and know the quality of it," he said.
Williamson said he is aware of the problems facing the board in the past several months. However, he said, the board is ready concentrate on education.
“No body, no district is perfect,” he said “I just feel very strongly that New Braunfels can rise to the occasion and maintain a quality program.”
Connie Milligan, past president of the secondary level PT A at Pine Tree, said Williamson is an open and honest person who “whole heartedly
has the best interest of the student at heart.” She said he has gone out of his way to inform parents and staff and get their feedback on site-based committees and superintendent advisory committees. She said he is always looking for ways to improve situations, and is good at finding compromise.
“He had a feel for what the parents are feeling at the campus level,” Milligan said.
Milligan said Williamson is active in the community. He has been very involved in United Way, and will serve as president next year. She said he is “a team player” who “works toward the good of all.”
“It will be Pine Tree’s loss and your gain if he gets it,” she said. “He’s still the best superintendent this district has had.”
The NBISD board will interview the candidates Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Trustees will visit the home district of the top candidate on May 5 and 6, and the position will be filled May 7.
The position became vacant when Charles Bradberry resigned after 14 years to become the superintendent of the Keller ISD.

Freeze hurts Texas wheat
From Page 1
Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission to hold contested hearings in 1995. CLEAN presented expert testimony, evidence and air dispersion modeling which showed that the concrete plant’s emissions would go over the plant’s property line, which would be a violation of the standard exemption.
In February 1996, TNRCC commissioners voted 2-1 to deny Ingram the standard exemption.
Ingram has since appealed the case and has applied for a permit to the TNRCC for the plant.
Barton said legislators are leaving the notice and comment provisions in the bills as a way to pacify citizens.
“The way I look at it it is a way for them to have citizens come and blow off their steam,” Batton said. “None of those comments have any weight in the judge’s decision.” Mike Stewart, vice-president for governmental affairs for the Texas Aggregates • and Concrete Association, said the bills would open more public participation not limit it.
“Most people who go to the hearing want to discuss truck traffic
and water quality. Under the present law they can’t do it.”
Stewart said by eliminating the limited aspect of a contested case, concrete batch plant opponents and the applicant would be able to talk the citizens concerns during a public hearing.
“It is window dressing that they are bringing in the consideration of water and traffic because in the legislation it doesn’t say how those items would be accounted in any ruling,” he said.
Stewart said he is helping to work on language in the bill which would allow for partial air dispersion modeling during a public hearing.
“Air dispersion modeling over predicts the emissions coming from a particular site,” Stewart said. “We believe it is not useful information. It is not correct. Why use information which is obviously flawed^ We don’t Winf^o limit the TNRCC or the public. What we doq’t need is hysteria brought about by an unreliable information source."
BARWISE (AP) — A bitter mid-April freeze severely damaged what might have been the best Texas wheat crop in five years, though industry experts say that high prices might provide some relief.
Plentiful winter rainfall had left fields soaked and wheat hearty for the first time since farmers harvested 67 million bushels in the Panhandle
in 1992. Then came the April 12 chill.
Maturing crops in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas were in a vulnerable growth stage when the temperatures plunged into the 20s and teens. Younger wheat grown north of Kansas was still fairly impervious to the chill that gripped the Great Plains.
