entrance and exit onto Landa Street.
He said he was leasing the land from Ronald Schmid of Texas Heritage Construction Inc., who would remodel the building on a schedule to open by November.
City officials said the building plans complied with their ordinances.
The saloon is allowed under the current zoning of light industrial development. It is more than 300 feet away from nearby Berean Bible Church, 889 Landa St., they said.
The last step before opening the saloon will be to obtain a beer and wine license from the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission.
Byrne said he had started the background checks necessary to file an application, but he had not submitted the application to the
The TABC would administer the process, which includes gaining approval from County Judge Carter Casteel.
Casteel, who by law conducts a public hearing on license applications, has refused the only three applications she has been presented during her tenure so far in Comal County.
Of the three refusals, two were upheld and one was overruled on appeal by district court judges.
“I’ll listen to the testimony of the applicant and anyone else wishing to give testimony and then FU make a
Kevin Barnmen of • the enforcement division of the TABC in New Braunfels, who also would review a license application, could not be reached for comment
According to the Alcohol Beverage Code, the county judge has the discretion to reject liquor license applications if the business affects the “general welfare, health, peace, morals and safety of the people...”
Donald Farmer, a manager at Farmer Brothers Drywall next to the lot, said he anticipated problems with traffic and criminal activity.
“None of us would be happy with having a bar,” he said. “It's a residential area around here. I think it would increase the chance of theft or break-ins.”
But, Raymond Voges, who sold the land to organizers of the bar and owns Farmer's building, said he did not understand the opposition.
“Why would it hurt?” he asked. “That doesn't make any sense.”

Saturday’s show will be the kickoff for a new club for modelers. The Lone Star Roundhouse Engineers club officially would form at the show.
Weidner said only modelers would be in the chib.
It would have 12 charter members, and all members must be IOO percent participants in the National Model Railroad Association, which standardized equipment to make it
compatible between vendors, said Weidner. The only other requirement, he said, is to have fun.
“This is purely the modelers club. This is going to be an old-fashioned club,” he said. “The goal is to primarily enjoy the hobby—that’s it.”

The GBRA board will vote on final approval of the contract in September Before the board approved the contract, some concerns were raised by board member W anda Roberts.
“I have a problem shipping water out of district,” Roberts said. “Senate Bill I says we can't do this. How' do you reconcile that?”
Roberts was referring to a provision in Senate Bill I restricting the way interbasin transfers are conducted.
lf GBRA approves the final water contract, water rights would be transferred from the Guadalupe River basin to the San Antonio River basin in Bexar County Senate Bill I requires a right or a portion of a right transformed during an interbasin transfer shall be junior to all other rights in the basin of origin. In other words, water rights purchased in the Guadalupe River basin by out of basin customers would be secondary to water rights of industries and users who live in the Guadalupe River basin.
Parts of the San Antonio River basin are in western Guadalupe County. The cities and portions of Schertz, Marion, Cibolo, GVSUD and EC WSC are in that river basin.
GBRA deputy general manager Fred Blumberg said the intcrbasin transfer provision may not apply to the CRWA contract since GBRA will be selling the water rights for a 20-year period instead of transferring them into the San Antonio River basin
“The way we view this as a sale of water rights, not a transfer of water rights,” said CRWA general counsel Louis Rosenberg. “This clearly leaves GBRA’s water nght intact.” Under the contract, Bexar Met would get the largest amount ot water, 4,000 acre feet per year.
The board also put off a preliminary agreement about the proposed pipeline from Canyon Lake to Bexar County The pipeline would serve western Comal County and northern Bexar County. It would carry water to the Canyon Lake Water Supply Corporation, Bexar Metro, Fair Oaks, the San Antonio River Authority and possibly Boerne.
The pipeline would serve about 15,000 households each in Bexar and
Comal counties. Under the proposed plan, an 8 million gallon per day surface water treatment plant would be built at Canyon Lake. It would treat about 8,000 acre feet per year of Canyon Lake water. The water would be treated at the proposed surface water plant.
The water that would be used in Canyon Lake is stored water. Canyon Lake already provides 50,000 acre
feet of water yearly with 32,000 acre feet going to downstream users.
GBRA general manager Bill West told the board he would meet with potential customers in Bulverde and Bexar County within the next few days about the pipeline.
West said issues such as rates among out-of-district customers and the legality of Senate Bill I still needed to be examined.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Two crew members were killed and two survived a late-night head-on collision of a Union Pacific freight train and a "runaway" train composed of four engines, officials say.
UP spokesman Mark Davis said today that the collision occurred late Wednesday when a freight train enroute from Fort Worth to El Paso collided with the four-engine "runaway train" outside a rail yard on the western outskirts of Fort Worth.
It was the second fatal crash involving Union Pacific trains in Texas in two months.
The so-called "runaway" train somehow rolled eastward from a siding onto the same track being used by the westbound freight, Davis said.
The four-engine unit had rolled about IO miles at the time of the accident, officials said.
Lt. Kent Worley of the Fort Worth Fire Department said the trains collided about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday near Interstate 30, about eight miles west of downtown Fort Worth, near Ridglea Country Club.
The accident site burst into flames after the accident because of 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel that leaked from the engines and ignited.
Two crew members were killed, one was treated at a local hospital and released and the other required no treatment, Davis said.
A firefighter was treated for heat exposure, Worley said.
The fire was brought under control about 2:30 a m.
