New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 13, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Austin attorney to replace Zipp An Austin attorney on the staff of the 3rd Court of Appeals will take County Court-at-Law Ron Zipp’s place Sept. 3. Commissioners court appointed Charles Blackley, formerly with Chunn & Chunn here and more recently with the 3rd Court of Appeals, to replace Zipp who resigned to return to private practice. Zipp occupied the office for two and a half years. The vote was unanimous on County Judge Fred Clark’s motion to appoint Blackley after Commissioner Lorenzo “Yankee" Camarillo asked about the one-year residency. Clark had stated earlier that was one of the two requirements for the job. “The law reads that the person who takes office must be a resident of Comal County for one year prior to the next general election," Clark explained. The next general election is more than a year away, so by election time, Blackley will have been a resident for the required year. In other business, commissioners agreed to take injunctive action against six property owners in Cypress I^ke Gardens for violating the Private Sewage Facility Order. Restraining orders will be sought against R.P. Gibson Jr. of Wetmore who owns a lot in Canyon View Acres, David A. Henderson of San Antonio, Thomas C. Reed of Spring Branch, Thomas Atchison of San Antonio, Lucien Green of Spring Branch and Danny Gianotti of Somerset, all who own lots in Cypress I>ake Gardens, a mobile home park off of Rebecca Creek Road. “I have taken them to JP (jusitce of the peace) court,” county sanitarian Bob Stahl said. “They paid fines and then just continued to be in violation. They have (sewage) pipes putting raw sewage on top of the ground." Commissioners also announced the beginning of budget workshops Thursday afternoon and again 9 a.m. Stocks NEW YORK IAP) -Morning stocks: Int Paper 49-’8 493h 49-h JohnsJn 46*8 4$ 46*8 High Low Last K mart 34*2 34 3 8 34*2 AMK Corp 49 48* 2 48"- KrogerCo 42*8 4134 42 Amer Can 5834 58*2 58 *» KTV Corp 87h 8-k 878 Ameriteeh 89 Mi 883 i 89*8 Litton Iud 78 77 78 AMI Inc 25'h 25 25*8 LoneSta Iud 27*8 27 27*8 Am Motors 3*4 3*8 3*8 Lowes 23*8 22*2 23‘h AmStand 30*4 30 30 MCorp 227h 221 j 22-8 Amer TAT 211 4 21 21*4 May DSt s 50-8 50 50*8 Amoco 633h 63 633 8 Medtronic 34 34 34 AtlKiehfld 58-8 58 *8 f,83« Mobil 29*2 29*» 293h BancTexas 3lh 3*8 3*8 Monsanto 51*2 51 38 5138 BellAtlan 88:* 8 88*4 88'8 Motorola 353h 35 35*4 BellSouth 393h 39*8 39*i NabiscoBrd 83*2 83*2 83*2 Beth Steel 173h 17*4 ITG NYNEX 823» $2 823.

In other business, commissioners approved the boundary change for Comal ISD that was the last step in the process of removing part of Encino Park from Comal and putting it into Northeast ISD. About 5 square miles of Encino Park was deannexed from Comal ISD in December 198*2. Comal ISD at first attempted to fight the deannexation. but eventually decided in February 1984 to drop an appeal of the Commission of Education decision. By the end of this week commissioners courts in each county that Comal ISI) extends into will have approved tile boundary change, a requirement by the Attorney General’s office for the selling of bonds, said Floyd Westerman, financial adviser for Comal ISD. Guadalupe, Hays, Kendall, Bexar and Comal commissioners all had to approve the change. In other business, commissioners approved $600 to draw plans for an Extension Service building estimated to cost between $75,000 and $85,000 for 4,200 square feet. Room for four extension agents, two meeting rooms, and a kitchen will be in the plans for building at the jail site. County Extension Agent Bill Schumann also said his agency could use corrals or fences there. “The 4-H clubs pay a lot in rental fees to the Comal County Fair Grounds for those facilities now," he said. Commissioners also decided to allow the house bought with the land at 165 E. Mill St. be used by Spaw Glass, the new Courthouse Annex’s builder, as construction offices. Originally commissioners had decided to auction the house off and remove it. Spaw Glass reduced their bid by $2,100 for the use of the building. Also commissioners authorized the buying of three hand-held radar units for the sheriff’s department at a cost of $1,500 a piece.★ Police. Continued from Page I No charges have been filed iii the incident.Police search for armed robbers New Braunfels Police are continuing their search today for two men who stole $3,600 from employees at a local restaurant early Sunday morning. About 12:45 a.m., manager Brad Cox was checking the outside doors at Oma’s Sausage House, 541 Texas 46 S., when lie was approached by two armed men who had been crouched behind a wagon. The wl e male was carrying a revolver, and the I .atm male, a sawed-off weapon, said Lt. Felix Roque. The men forced Cox back into the restaur it. The robbers then used duct t; e to bind Cox and three other employees. One of the employees later was able to free his hands and call police. Roque said the robbers took the money, in two bank bags and inside a paper sack, and fled out a rear door. The white male is about 5-feet. 9-inches tall, and 160 pounds, lie has blue eyes and was wearing an orange ski mask. The latin male is 6-feet tall, weighs 200 pounds, has brown eyes and possibly has black hair. He was wearing a black bandanna, a camouflage shirt and a green knit hat. New Braunfels Police Department is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and-or indictment of the men. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the police department at 625-7181.Two are arrested in business burglaries A Canyon I^ake man and a 13-year-old juvenile turned themselves in to the Comal County Sheriff’s Office on burglary of a building charges Monday. George I^eslie Cantrell Jr., 17. was placed under a $1,000 bond by Justice of the Peace Howard “Curly” Smith. The juvenile was released to the custody of his parents Sheriff’s Invest.gator Kermit Kroesche said warrants were issued for the pair s arrest in connection w ith burglaries at two Canyon I-ike businesses on July 30. Perishable food items and cigarettes valued at about $40 were taken from Goofy s, and a $150 assortment of gold-colored mountings used to top ceramic vases was reported stolen from J&W Drafting Co. ★ Bonds, Continued from Page I preliminary work that's been done on pro-rata and future improvements on capital recovery costs." The $4.78    million    actually represents the first phase of Sohn's original $26    million proposal, followed by $8 66 million in 1986-87, $4.63 million in 1987-88, and $8 49 million in 1988-90. At the Aug. 7 workshop. Councilman James Goodbread said first phase authorization would not predicate future approval of Hie whole $26 million. Utilities officials were just as quick to indicate they ’ll be back as early as next spring. But Trustee Al Kosko said the unity and cooperation he felt between Council and Utilities Monday night Construction at Bulverde Elementary School Bulverde Elementary may be finished Sept. 3 was real healthy in my book. That’s more important than the $4.78 million.” . Sohn said he would start to implement the bond program immediately, and be back to Council on Sept 9 for bond bid approval. The bottom line we’re looking at w hen we should have the money ) is Dec. 15," he added. “And we’ll do the preliminary work on critical projects so we ll Ix* ready to move out right away.” For Utilities customers, Sohn said the $4 78 million Lssue should increase the average residential customer’s electric bill by about 50 cents a month. Both water and sewer rate increases should bt* around 40 cents per month for the average residential user. 47 Kickoff 48 Run-down 50 Vine 51 Writer Sinclair 52 - porridge 53 Which one'7 54 Arizona native 55 Mashie e g 56 Seasoning 60 Was fir bi★ Parks. Continued from Page I luanda Park be charged a fee. lAxal taxpayers would receive a sticker to allow them free access, while visitors would pay, he said. Another way the parks department could try to raise some extra money, Whatley said, will be to apply for matching grants from the state “We’re going to apply for matching grants whether we get them or not,” he said. With that money, the department could make improvements at I .anda Park or other existing parks. And by the time another bond issue rolls around, Whatley said, “these parks will be behind us and maybe we could address land acquisition." The parks director said his department’s proposal allows the provision of facilities now and the addition of pleasantries later. Council told Whatley it would like to see an alternative site reviewed for the softball fourplex and also asked for a look at the effect the park will have on Kuehler Avenue residents. The Camp Comal complex is expected to be able to double the number of teaiiLs using the fields. More teams will play, which means games will be over earlier in the evening. Neighboring residents have expressed concern about lights during Contractors building an eight-classroom addition to Bulverde Elementary School say it is still possible to have tile new facility ready w hen school opens on Sept .3. But Comal ISD Superintendent Bill Brown says he is looking realistically at the middle of the month before the clasrooms w ill be ready for use. “The contractor has IO rainy days, and I expect him to use them,” Brown said “The first week in September is still a possibility,” said Ed Adams, construction superintendent for Texas Western Contractors, Inc. “Now that the walls are up. we plan to get this part married to the other building next week, and then we’U work two shifts if necessary." Adams indicated that his company can gain a day or two each week by working double shifts, as long as lit gets full cooperation from his subcontractors. When the contract was let on Ma\ ll). Texas Western agreed to have the project completed in 106 days. on Aug. 23. in time for school officials to get furniture and supplies moved in for the first day of school. But problems with subcontractors have caused Texas Western to fall behind schedule Adams said his site contractor caused the longest delay and the complicated three-level foundation took longer to construct than anticipated Heavy rams, including flash 0*8*1 conditions in the Bulverde area in May, further delay ed the project Connie Bremer, principal of the elementary school, said she has prepared a contingency plan and is drawing a map so that students will know where to go on the first day of school if lite new facility is not complete Concrete walls were tilted and set ui place last week for an eight-classroom addition to the Bulverde Elementary School. KGB    agent goes on trial AUSTIN (AP i A self-proclaimed KUB agent is on trial in federal court on charges of defrauding an Austin man of $46,000 after promising to secure the release of the man’s son from captivity in Vietnam Bralisiav I aile, 33, a native of Yugoslavia who listed a Chicago address in court records, went on trial Monday in Austin accused of sw indling Douglas F.

More than 30 bitches were recovered but John Pierce’s was not among them late hours and also about traffic along the only road to the park Council briefly discussed trading the park land to a developer for another site, but City Attorney Barry Moore said the sale, and possibly the trading, of public land cannot be done with public approval. Whatley, who said the department tried to address existing parks and facilities, added that he would hate to lose the Camp Comal land. “We would never be able to buy it,” he said. “This would be the cheapest way to address this property; we already own the facility.” Parks board member Robert Hamel pointed out that any developer who bought the prime Camp Comal property, which has about 14 acres of river front land, would not let it sit dormant. “That’s going to (also) create traffic out there,” Hamel said. Most of the parks projects proposed for the bond issue include work such as paving roads and parking lots, replacing fences and lights, adding picnic tables, and renovating playgrounds and restrooms. Volleyball and basketball courts also are included for some of the parks. Whatley said that if the bond issue doesn’t pass, die city would have “nothing to add for recreational growth.”★ Incorporation.

We don’t want someone else doing that for us. “New Braunfels is on top of us. San Antonio said it’s going five miles every year. That alone gives us two years, and we’re gone,” he added. Tim Haynes, a resident of the Utile Ponderosa subdivision, said, “Obviously, San Antonio is the greater of two evils, so why are you going toward Startzville?” Thompson said Startzville residents were also “ready to file incorporation maps. That’s another reason we were in such a hurry .” Another man with property in Sattler said his business was included in the proposed incorporation, but his home was not. If he couldn’t vote, that smacked of taxation without representation, and "that’s Dad news,” he said. Thompson said the city of Sattler, if incorporated, could pass a bottle ordinance for the Guadalupe River. "We could put restrooms at strategic places along the river and clean her up She s a queen of a river, but right now. site’s a prostitute and a garbage dump ” l-iw enforcement along River Road and county road maintenance were other big questions Thompson said the county had agreed to maintain River Road "at cost,” but Sattler would liave to maintain its own police department. "We must have one town marshal, and he can have as many deputies as needed,” he added. Thompson said 600 citations C’every one of them was $50”) had been issued on River Road since Easter. “Now you think oui police department won’t support itself?,” he asked. Tom Bryant, another Little Ponderosa resident, said proposed constraints along the river would be “unenforceable things.” You say the ad valorem tax will be five cents (per $100 valuation) But we don’t really know what it s going to be,” Bryant said, addin* tliat “scares me to death.” Another town meeting has beei scheduleu for 7 p.m. Wednesday a Mountain Valley School.★ Insurance.
