bably a very wise move and I probably would not have said that two years ago. but with the present (CAD) management. I can see some positive things happening.”
"It is beneficial to NBISD and is a very cost-effective short-term answer for CAD," said Birdberry "They will have to answer the longterm question the taxing entities need to work together "
New Braunfels City Manager Joe
Michie also went on record as saying he was pleased with the decision of the appraisal district to office in a central location and to execute a lease with another entity.
CAD has sought in the past year to purchase land and construct office space and sought an opinion from the state attorney general’s office. Rhodes decided later to seek additional leased space and negotiated with NBISD following the rejection Dec 15 of bids from Seidel and Nevitt-Mayflower.

Local business participates in lamp rebate program
Continued from Page IA
Beaty Street resident Al Benson presented council with a petition containing the signatures of JOO persons against the proposed easement sale Reading from the petition. Benson said:
"It deprives neighbors and citizens of the ingress and egress of the Guadalupe River It deprives the citizens of a recreational facility not know n to many tourists
The petition further stated that those w ho signed felt that the w ishes of the prospective buyers stemmed from greed, though the property has no future developmental value
Council authorized an appraisal of the properties on either side of the river The property was divided into five tracts and the third, or middle, tract was the river itself and not appraised Tracts one and two. adjoin
ing Sanger Street and which council proposed to sell, were valued at a total of $23,000 for the 0.683 acres. Tracts four and five, located on the Mission Valley Mill side, is a steep embankment and not considered for sale.

New Braunfels Utilities and the Lower Colorado River Authority presented the first lamp replacement rebate check to Coiffures de Ville at 365 Landa this week.
The lamp replacement rebate program, operated by NBU and LCRA, is a monetary rebate program ($125 per kilowatt saved) which is available to any nonresidential customer of NBU who replaces their standard lighting with more efficient fluorescent lamps.
In the case of Coiffures de Ville, six kilowatts of incandescent lighting were replaced with 3.4 kilowatts of energy-efficient fluorescent lighting This change represents a $435 97 annual savings on an electric bill and a rebate check from NBU-LCRA in the amount of $325
“This is a very good program for our customers," said Bob Sohn. NBL general manager. "It allows us to do two very important things First, it allows us to help our customers by deferring the cost of energy-saving lighting. This saves them money on their utilitiy bill each and every month
"Secondly, it helps the utilities maintain its present low cost for elec tricity by not having to supply the wasted electricity which would even

In addition, the spring concert season brings its own rew ards I think J hey have learned ii great deal from the standpoint that it imparts a responsibility of learning their part.” Tucker said "When we break down into three concert bands, it s very improtant that the> learn their part and learn their part correctly "From that standpoint I hope they learn more appreciation of music, developing an ear for music and sight-reading skills ”
Parents agree that their children benefit from the band program One parent said being a member of the
band has taught her son responsibility. appreciation for all kinds of music and compassion for other students as well as a sense of spirit and belonging "It gives them something to strive for. " one parent said

He added that being in the band allowed his daughter to be "part of a really good team" and encouraged a special contact with the band directors who were receptive to students' ideas. In addition, the daughter was able to have achievements "that she would have missed " and could "compete and do well" against peers at NBHS and other schools
Tucker s gratification comes from future as well as current successes Besides the current high school effort Tucker has seen a number of
band members graduate and go on to later musical achievement \ number of Unicorn band graduates have become band directors
