New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 24, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday, August 24, 2005 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 3A KARCHMER CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Candidate says DA’s office can improve t want to work with local law enforcement agencies and ; move cases forward as quickly as possible." Although he did not level any direct criticism against Waldrip, Karchtner did say he believed the district attorney’s office could be run more efficiently with better use of resources. I Karchmer moved to New Braunfels from Corpus CJiristi in 2001, after visiting the city on a golfing trip with some friends. “We didn’t know it when we got here, but it was county fair weekend,” Karchmer recalled. “I just loved it. I decided right away I was going to move.” Less than three months later, he was settled into his new home and working on his golf game. In 2003, Karchmer opened his legal practice and began taking court-appointed cases. His relatively short experience with the Comal County legal system convinced him he had a lot to offer the department. “In this job, it’s important to be able to prosecute cases, but its also important to run an efficient office,” he said. Although this will be Karch-mer’s first bid for elected office, he gained experience as a prosecutor in Corpus Christi, working for one year as an assistant district attorney. Karchmer, who is 62, said he the people of Comal County could rest assured he would give the job his full attention. “I’m not interested in running for a higher office,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to working with the younger lawyers and helping them become good prosecutors.” Ronald Karchmer SCHOOL CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Urban enjoys her first day on the job By the end of the day, the little girl had changed her mind. Walking to recess, hand in hand with her teacher, Loren was all smiles. “I really like school now," she told Urban. “You were right." The rest of the first day passed by in a blur of games, drawing exercises, lunch and a long nap. When Principal Dan Bolen came over the intercom to announce it was time to get ready to go home, everyone in Urban's classroom, including the teacher, was exhausted. “I can’t believe the day went by so fast,” Urban said as she finalized homework assignments and put them in each child’s backpack. The children all said they had a good day — the most popular event seemed to be recess. Urban’s favorite part of the day was finally getting her own classroom. “I have wanted to be a teacher since I was their age,” she said. “I used to play school with my brother. Today was great even though the day was crazy. I ’m so glad to be here.” Keeping an eye on the students sitting in line for the bus, Urban wondered if she was too strict with the kids on their first day. “There are so many rules for them to learn,” she said, laughing. “They probably went home and told their parents I was really mean. But by the end of the day, they all told DAVID INGRAM Herald-Zeitung Molly Urban addresses her class on the first day of school Tuesday. me they loved me, so I guess it’s OK.” When they walked out of the classroom, none of the young students seemed reluctant about coming back. "Bye Ms. Urban," they said in unison. “See you tomorrow.” WATER CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Not everyone happy with proposal the Canyon Lake corporation some time ago, the board declined to sell. The second time around, the board of directors had a change of heart. “T his is an exciting opportunity for both companies,” said SJW President Richard Roth. “We believe there are significant benefits to the community in bringing additional resources and expertise to the Canyon Lake area at this time. SJW is looking forward to working with the management and customers of CLWSC to enhance service levels, water quality and environmental stewardship. We also understand that local presence and community involvement are keys to providing outstanding service, effective planning and responsible management.” But not everyone is happy with the proposed sale. VOTING CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Bulverde voters to elect new mayor Startzville, which had about 7,300 residents in the 2000 census. It would comprise about 8.1 square miles and encompass the LM 2673 area up to Cranes Mill, following the lake shore southeast to Sunburst Road and then back “I can understand why they want to buy Canyon Lake Water Supply My question is why do I want to sell?” — Larry L. Williamson Canyon Lake resident Canyon I,ake resident Larry L. Williamson, a CLWSC user, said he would not support the move. “Canyon I,ake Water Supply has done a good job developing this area, but it needs to do better,” Williamson said. “If the current board of directors can’t get it done, then we need to elect a new board. I don’t need to turn over my control to some outfit in California. If you have control of this water company, you can direct it where you want it to go.” Williamson said that after considering the prospect of having local water owned by a California company, two concerns popped up. His primary concern was having a California company controlling water in Canyon Lake. A secondary thought was having a for-profit company take over the to PM 2673, completing the loop. Startzville would become a Type B Municipality under the Texas Local Government Code. Only 4,621 people have registered to vote in the election. While Startzville residents decide their future, Bulverde residents will pick a new mayor to fill the remainder of former Mayor Bill Cole’s term. Three candidates will nonprofit CLWSC. “I can understand why they want to buy Canyon Lake Water Supply,” Williamson said. “My question is why do I want to sell? Canyon Lake Water Supply can, in fact, do a better job than they have with different management. There are well-qualified people.” Before the transaction can be finalized, three steps must be taken. First, the board of directors must approve a final offer from SJW. Second, since CLWSC is owned by its users, the users must approve the sale. Finally, the Texas Commission on Lnvironmental Quality must give its approval. If the sale is approved, the payment would be transferred to the company’s users. The exact amount each user would receive would be based on usage and would differ from home to home and business to business. appear on the ballot — current Mayor Pro Tem Sarah Stevick, former alderman Charlie Baetz and newcomer Kevin Smith. The election is open to all city of Bulverde residents — 3,427 voters are registered. Early voting ends Sept. 6. -—    —    rn Why Clean You .
