(USPS 377 880)Community Fund closing in on $85,000 goal
By DEBBIE DelOACH Staff writer
As of Friday afternoon, just $13,440 separates Comal County Community Fund from its 1082 drive goal of $85,000.
“It’s so close." said John Turman, president of the Comfunn board of directors. 'And we’ve got several things going I think will push us over the hill."
For example, a second batch of advance gifts letters has been mailed out. contacting
those w ho didn t respond the first time.
‘‘We’ll wait and see how we come out on that little venture, and then we’ve got a telephone solicitation system set up for Dec. 13 and 14, in an effort to wind this thing up by Dec. 15," Turman said.
The New Braunfels High School Student Council is also sponsoring a Comfund run Dec. ll. Prizes have been donated by local merchants, and Detex has donated trophies. Fliers telling about the event have been sent out to running clubs in the San Antonio-Austin area.
and “we’re expecting to do quite well with that, too." ,
Ixist year, Comfund fell short of its goal by about $15,000, and the 18 agencies were given only 87 percent of their original allocations. Turman has said throughout this Comfund drive that he’s determined not to have a repeat of last year.
Speaking for the Comfund board of directors, Turman said. “We want the county to know how much we appreciate the support we’ve gotten so far. And I want to encourage
those who haven’t given a donation to do so. Please don’t delay, (live as much as you can whenever you can."
A possible misunderstanding may exist, in that people think the money has to Ik* in-hand" by Dec. 15 designated by Comfund as the cutoff date. Comfund executive secretary Suzanne Herbclin explained it this way: “What we want to have by Dec. 15 is our goal. $85,000, in pledges. Just because we re cutting it off Dec. 15, doesn’t mean the money has to be paid by then. Anyone can pay out a pledge
however he or she can do it . $100 to be paid out quarterly, or even $1 a week, etc.
"Even though the drive is taking place iii 1982. the money doesn t have to be in our hands in two weeks," she said. “We want to raise $85,000 in pledges, but can collect the money any way it’s convenient."
Some good news that hit the Comfund total Friday was a $2,600 donation from the employees of Kroger’s. “That was a tremendous boost, and we appreciate those efforts so much," Turman said.

Incorporation studied as possible alternative to River Road woes
By DYANNE FRY Staff writer
During the busy summer months, recreational traffic in the River Road area gets a little out of hand.
Quite a few Comal County residents would agree with that, but it’s not so easy to say what should be done about it The County Commissioners Court has tried for years to come up with a solution. Two major obstacles have appeared rn almost every path the county has tried: lark of funds, and lack of legal authority to do much of anything.
Now, some river-area residents are talking about taking matters mto their own hands and incorporating as a city.
“If it came about, we’d have ordinance-making power, just like the City of New Braunfels," said Norris Flodine, president of the Guadalupe Valley and River Association. The officers of that group are more or less behind the incorporation effort.
It’s still very much in the discussion stage at this point We’ve had one kind of a general meeting," Flodine said. Held at Mountain Valley on Nov 18, the meeting drew property owners from Canyon Dam downriver to the other side of Elm Creek Attendance, said Flodine, “must have been in the neighborhood of a hundred.
"I didn’t think it was a very good crowd myself, considering the
territory we had to cover. But Mr. i Fred I McIntyre, the principal up there, said it was a wonderful crowd.’’
Gauging the general feeling of the meeting, Flodine said, "It looks like some of the people w ho are in business from Second Crossing toward (New Braunfels) would like not to incorporate. Some people right in the heart of Sattler would like not to incorporate. And there s quite a few people in between who think it might be a good idea."
He said the issue would be discussed further at another meeting early in 1983.
Betty McGranahan, mayor of Garden Ridge, w as a guest speaker at first gathering. Her city (population approximately 700) began as a subdivision in southeastern Comal County. It was incorporated in 1972, when residents decided they’d rather govern themselves than be annexed by San Antonio.
“She was there to talk about some of the problems we’d have to face if we decided to do it,” Flodine said.
Cities can’t be started on just any old country road. Texas municipal law guarantees a certain density by setting a minimum population and a maximum area for newly-incorporated areas.
The maximum area is two square miles. It seems at first glance that

SALT I .AKE (’ITV' (AP) — Barney Clark underwent surgery Saturday evening to correct a complication resulting from a pioneering transplant operation in which his diseased heart was replaced with a whirring mechanical device.
"The surgery has been completed The indications are they were able to solve the problem,’’ said John Dwan, University of Utah Medical Center spokesman.
(’lark, who had been taken off the critical list earlier in the day , was returned to tile operating room after air was found to be leaking into his chest wall.
There was no immediate word on what had caused the problem but hospital spokesman Mark Sands said earlier the complication was "not an emergency situation "
Dr. Chase Peterson, university vice president of
health services, said before Saturday’s operation, "Nothing is wrong with tile (ain drive line in terms of cardiovascular function Blood pressure is fine Pulse is fine l he problem may have been there all along, and became acute after removal of tile drainage lubes.”
Peterson said the leaking could la* caused by a tiny hole iii the tube outside the cardiovascular area, but within the chest wall.
He said the air also could be coming from the lung tissue itself, lf that were the case, surgeons would put in another tula1 to suck up the air and keep it from diffusing into the tissue.
"I’m not terribly concerned," said Dr Robert Jarvik, inventor of the Jarvik-7 artificial heart.
Clark had been listed in serious but stable condition before Saturday’s operation.
