Going up... a little
NBISD raises lunch prices a nickel
By DAVID KING Staff writer
Lunches and breakfasts rn the New Braunfels Independent School District will be a little higher when school opens Aug. 29.
Lunches in the fail will be $1 for elemetary students and >1.05 for secondary students and breakfast will be 55 cents at all levels after Tuesday’s decision by the NBISD Board of Trustees.
The prices for adults will also go up
to $1.35 for teachers and other employees and $1.60 for non-employees
Increases were needed because of changes in the federal rembursement for meals. Without the increase, the district’s food operations would not be self-supporting, said Lonnie Curtis, whose title was changed from business manager to assistant superintendent for business services at the meeting.
The district has to justify spending at least $1.2025 for lunches, because that’s the amount the district is
allotted for students who eat at reduced rates or for free.
The district will remain selfsupporting in the cafeteria despite the difference between the $1 2025 and the rates it will charge.
Reduced-price lunches will remain at 40 cents, since that is the maximum allowed by federal guidelines. Breakfasts will also remain at 30 cents

N’DJAMENA, Chad (API The government today clanned libyan planes are dumping fragmentation and phosphorus bombs on northern Chad to rout President Hissene Habre’s forces, and Pentagon sources said U.S. advisers have been sent to help his embattled army Officials in the capital said libyan MiGs and Tupolev aircraft have continuously dropped the highly destructive bombs on Kava-I-irgeau, a northern oasis town that Habre’s forces recaptured from the Ubyan-backed rebels of former President Goukouni Oueddei last week A French physician working in an N’Djamena hospital tuid reporters Tuesday Dial he treated several wounded in Faya-Largeau by the phosphorus bombs, which release much heat. Fragmentation bombs are anti-personnel weapons that hurl shrapnel over a wide area I a by a has repeatedly denied any intention of intervening in the latest phase of Chad's 18->ear civil war. and has denied that it has been bombing Faya-largeau.
In Washington. Pentagon sources said today the Reagan administration
sent four military advisers to Habre's forces to show them how lo fire U S -supplied Redeye shoulder-fired antiaircraft missiles The sources said the training will continue for ‘ a few days.”
The heat-seekmg Redeye missiles are part of a SIO million military aid package promised to Habre's forces
The Reagan administration accused libyan leader Col Moammar Khadafy of aiding Chadian rebels to extend libya’* influence. Khadaf> accused Washington of backing Habre for the same reason
Chad's Information Minister Soumaila Ma ha mat today “categorically denied” rebel claims they had retaken Faya-lairgeau He saijl J^esday tha* Habre’s forces were driving Oueddefs rebels toward the small oasis of Kirdimi. 55 miles north of Faya-largeau.
He said large parts of the oasis were destro>ed bv libyan bombs, and that casualties were heavy among the IO,UUU residents and the combatants It was impossible to verify the reports because journalists were not permitted to travel to Kaya-lairgeauFighting in Chad

Huaco Falls boulder back in place—almostInside
A misplaced boulder at Huaco Falls is back almost in its original spot But it s not lying quite the way it used to.
"It’s not right,” admitted Mike Pfeuffer *Jt’s exposed. It had been submerged But your average tourist conung over the falls is not going to run into it.”
Pfeuffer, one of the family that owns Huaco Springs Camp, was disturbed to learn last Tuesday that one of the big rocks in the famous Guadalupe River rapid had been relocated by a man with two chain hoists
The rock mover, Daniel Hoffmann of Seguin, reported that photographer Bob Mangus i Adventure Images, Inc. of New Braunfels! had paid him to move the boulder, because swimmers standing on it blocked his shots of boats coining over the falls. Mangus denied giving any such order in a Herald Zeitung telephone interview Friday.
At any rate, Hoffmann was back at Huaco Falls on Friday, trying to restore the rock to its original position “From what I understand,
he did it out of his own pocket,” said Pfeuffer.
He and river outfitter Frank Smith were of the opinion that the displaced rock, moved for no good reason, made Huaco Falls more dangerous to canoeists than it already w as The river bed and its contents are. technically, state property. But Pfeuffer felt some responsibility, since Hoffmann had set up his equipment on the family property, and since Mangus (who may or may not have been involved) leases a photography spot on the* bank at Huaco Springs He thought it would be best to replace the roc k lf possible.
By chance, or perhaps not by chance at all, the original moving was done while his parents, District Judge and Mrs. Robert T Pfeuffer, were out of the country The question of whether the rock-inovers actually violated the law is still unsettled And even if it is settled, it seems unlikely that charges will ever be brought

Pipeline puts new wrinkle in plat
Bv OYANNE FRY Staff writer
A Valero Company pipeline put an interesting glitch in a Green Meadows plat reviewed bv the Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday night The plat shows the gas line in the way of a future street called Daisy lame, if the plat’s approved the way it is. we’re going to have a 60-foot strip where Daisy lame does not connect,” said New Braunfels Planning Director Debra Goodwin Thinking that developer Gerald Williams was still negotiating a right-of-way agreement with Valero. Goodwin asked surveyor Craig Hollnug whether there was an> progress on that front.
Hollmig indicated the matter was prett> well settled Valero will allow Daisy lane to come across its gas right-of-way But as far as he knows, the company has no intention of dedicating that section of street to the city.
That i the pipeline right-of-way > is not just as easement They own it free,” Hollmig said It's an unusual situation, and one the planning commission apparent!) had never seen before "lift the city attorney have that one,” shrugged S D David Jr The five members present gave final plat approval, contingent on the city attorney’s
