City begins construction on Memorial Trail bridges
From staff reports
The C!itv of New Braunfels has announce'd that construction has be*gun on two pedestrian bridges planned as part of the South Tributary Drainage Project.
The project me ludes development of an approximately two-mile long line'ar park and trail from Farm-to-Marke*t Road 1044 to FM 725.
"These bridges will cre*-ate a connection from .) number of neighborhoods to Ihe new County I ine Memori.il Trail," said Stacey Dicke, Parks and Rc'crc'ation director. "We
are promoting an active and healthy lifestyle by providing a place for f)eo-ple to walk, bicycle and run without having to driv(' to a trail first — as well as otfering improvc'd acc ess for c hildren to the schools along the route."
One footbridge is positioned at the end of Rolling Valley ne'ar Kraft Park, and the second is at FHottmann Park on North-park Ridge.
Thc'se structures connect to the eight-foot wide Cj)unty Line Memorial Trail, whic h will feature trees, irrigation, and benches.
Texas cattle prodiicers could take several years to fully recover from the drought blistering the state, whicn agriculture otfic ials estimated Wednesday has caused a record $5.2 billion in livestoc k ancl (rop losst's since last fall.
Officials say producers in the nation's leafling cattle state have sent more animals than usual to auction, Ix'cause there's nothing for them to graze on. That means fewer aninials available to buy down the road, and the*y'll cost more l)ecause there will bc' t(*w-er around.
It will also take time before ranchers will have new animals to sell, said Texas AgriLitt* Fxtc'nsion St'rvice drought sfH'c iaiist Travis Miller.
"I really expect a thrf'C'-year rc'covery in liv('st(xk when we ‘-tart getting rain," he said.
l,)rought has sf)read over much of the South this year, setting records Irom Louisiana to Ne*vv Mexico. But the situation is espcH ially sc*V('re in Texas, the nation's sc'cond-largest agriculture stat(> behind Calilornia.
Field surveys troin November 2010 to Aug. I this year indicate liv(*sto(k
losses of $2.1 billion and ( rop loss(’s of $ }.l billion in the state, exten^-ion i( e economist David Anderson said. By the tinu* c rops are rione being bar vestenl, it might b(' more,

By Betty Tayior
A team of individuals making u() the nc'W' Development Counc il are hof)-ing to bring aw'arene?ss to the* cit\''s only not-for-profit, faith-base*d hospital, Christus Santa Rosa Flospital -Nc'w Braunfels, said Melissa Krause, director of mar-kc'ting and communications with Christus Santa Rosa Flc'alth Systc*m.
Ihe council's first c'vent, the 201 1 Cruene Hall Fundraise-r, is h-9 p.m. Aug. 30 at Cjruene Flail witn local entertainment [)rovid-c'd by Ric k C'avender, Don Forres and Pete Williams.

"Funding raised by the Development Council will dire'c tly benc'fit patients and their familic's at C'hristus Santa Rc»a Hospital-New Braunfels as we work toward extending the he«!!-ing ministrv' of Jc'sus Christ," said Iim We'sson, (Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executive's), vice president^admin istrator of Christus Santa Rosa Flospi-tai-Nc'w Braunfels.
Krueger said some council mc'mbers were [>art of a devt'lopment counc il with the former McKenna Memorial Hospital be'fore it became C'hristus Santa Rosti Flospital - Ncav Braun-fe'ls.
"Thc'y have a dc'e'p-se'ate'd history' with the hospital and
still sc'e it as a communit\ hospital," she said.
"As you know, as a not-for-profit, any profits (k>n't go back to shareholders. Profits go bac k to hos )ital f)rograms and te'chno ogy improvc'me'nts," Krause said, adding there* was nothing wrong with hospitals that ope'rate with shareholders. "But we will be looking to the community tor [)hilan-thropic donations and to raise funds in the community. This is a vc'ry mu( h in-the-trenches, grassroots effort right now."
The first event, Krause said, would be more of a socializing, networking event between hos[)ital leadership and the commu nit)' to heighten awarenc'ss. She added that healing went Ix'yond medical care, explaining that fundraising would help with such programs as art projec ts in the birthing centc'r.
"There will be an opportunity at the e've'nt to tund canvasses. We are tc'aming up with Mc Kenna C'hil-dren's Museum. They will Ix' having a Fun Day of Play when children can c rc'ate a
