Page 4A — Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, August 27, 20054B board approves $7.8 million budget AP Poll: Soldiers’ families more likely to back war
By Leigh Jones
The New Braunfels Industrial Development Corporation (4B) Board approved its 2005-06 budget Friday, setting its potential expenditures at $7.8 million.
During the 2004-05 fiscal year, the board spent only $2.35 million, but future projects are expected to require funds from the group’s $5.3 million savings.
Board members already have committed by resolution to spending $3 million — $1.5 million for both the airport air traffic control tower and the civic center expansion.
Other possible projects include an industrial park development and additional support for the Central Texas Technology Center.
City Chief Financial Officer Jeff Hinson told board members he expected next year’s revenues to total $3.1 million.
“As you can see, sales tax is expected to be up considerably this year, and I have budgeted lower than what we are expecting to come in."

The majority of 4B funds come from a three-eighth cent sales tax which should generate $2.68 million this year. As yet unknown revenue from I louie Depot Call Center and Ashley Furniture could increase the sales tax numbers significantly.
“As you can see, sales tax is expected to be up considerably this year, and I have budgeted lower than what we are expecting to come in,” he said.
Last year’s sales tax allotment brought in $2.23 million for 4B projects.
Although most of the board’s expenses vary every
year, several budget items are fixed. The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce receives $170,000 for its economic development activities, and payments for three bond projects total $668,430.
The 4B board is not required by law to set a more specific budget, but they do have an internal priorities list that indicates how they plan to spend their funds.
Last year’s budget allocations included 40 percent for business development incentives, 5 percent for job training facilities support, 4 percent for quality of life facilities, 18 percent for infrastructure improvements, 15 percent for public facility improvements, 7 percent for services and support and 11 percent for industrial park development.
Board members plan to adjust those allocations for this year at a future meeting.
WASHINGTON (AP) — People with friends or relatives serving in Iraq are more likely than others to have a positive view of a generally unpopular war, an AP-Ipsos poll found.
Some of those surveyed said their relationships with troops helped them learn more about what’s going on in Iraq beyond the violence. Others said their opinions of the war were shaped by a sense of loyalty to those in harm’s way.
A solid majority of those who did not know anyone in Iraq said they thought the war was a mistake, 61 percent, compared to 36 percent who thought it was the right decision. Those who had a relative or friend there were almost evenly split, 49 percent right decision, 47 percent mistake.
After Ted Chittum of Bourbon, Ind., had a chance to talk at length with his cousin who served in Iraq, he said he got a
different picture of what was going on in the country.
“He talked about all the good things that are going on,” said Chittum, a school superintendent and a political independent who supports the war effort. “Schools are opening up. The people are friendly, wanting our help. You get a whole different spin from what you get on television.”
Those who know someone serving in Iraq were more likely to approve of the Bush administration’s conduct of the war — 44 percent, compared to 37 percent overall.
“From most of the information I get, the people over there Fighting basically are proud to be there and feel they’re doing something good,” said Sally Dowling, a bank employee from Mesa, Ariz., who said her boss’s son is serving in Iraq. “That brings it home more than if I didn’t know anybody.”
With the U.S. death toll in
Iraq climbing past 1,870 with an especially bloody August, the public’s opinion of the Bush administration’s handling of the war has been eroding over the past two years.
Overall attitudes about the war — while negative — haven’t changed dramatically through the summer. A solid majority, 60 percent, want U.S. troops to stick it out until Iraq is stable.
The poll found that 58 percent of people disapprove of the Bush administration’s conduct of the war and consider it a mistake. Half believe the war increases the threat of terrorism. Democrats over-whelmingly question the president’s policies, while Republicans overwhelmingly support them.
Among the strongest supporters of President Bush’s handling of the war were Republicans and evangelicals, men and especially suburban men.
