New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 26, 1989, New Braunfels, Texas pushes drive By STEPHANIE DAVIS Staff Writer While collecting signatures for the tax consolidation petition, Comal County Commissioner Clyde Jacobs was forced Tuesday to move his motor home from the post office on Seguin Avenue, but that hasn’t stopped his campaign there. He said he will gather signatures from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the U.S. Post Office and then camp in his borrowed motor home parked at the Borchers law office on Seguin Avenue. “I found that to be the most productive period here in front of the post office,” Jacobs said. “Then I move down to my campground number two.” Tuesday morning, Ll. John Wom-mack of the New Braunfels Police Department told Jacobs he must move the motor home because he was violating city ordinances. Jacobs moved further down Seguin Street to the law offices. No one will gather signatures at campground number two because “they are more productive out walking neighborhoods than sitting there,” Jacobs said. City Manager Paul Grohman said action was taken to move Jacobs after citizens complained die motor home was a traffic hazard. Jacobs, along with Commissioner Neil Craigmilc, started a campaign See PETITION, Page 2A Cub Scout Pack 387 and the American Legion Comal Post 179 conducted a flag retirement ceremony Tuesday night in Landa Park.

Kraft presented a petition to council with 53 names of concerned residents wanting a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Faust Street and Kuehler Avenue, The traffic study, written by Martin Mayer, traffic safety coordinator, recommended a two-way stop at that intersection — ow sign on die northwest comer of Kueh ler Avenue and one on the southeast comer of Kuehler Avenue. “There was some peripheral problems,” Mayer said. “People (are) using the arca to bypass the light at Seguin and (U.S.) 81 and we looked al the whole area on what it would take to curtail just drive-through traffic.” Councilmember Bill Arnold agreed with the traffic study that a two-way stop at the intersection of Faust Street and Kuehler Avenue is sufficient. “I don’t understand why we need a four-way stop,” he said. “I can’t understand why a two-way stop sign can’t handle it.
