New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 1, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas 2A New Braunfels Herald-Ze/Yuny Wednesday, February 1, 1984 Three sites rumored for new Post Office Election at-a-glance By MARJORIE COOK P.O. SITE — Three sites are said to be under consideration for a new New Braunfels Post Office, and tenants of the former Richards and Krueger buildings in the 600 block of Seguin Avenue have been informed they will learn early in February whether or not they will have to move. Unconfirmed rumors have the Modem Trailer Court in the 200 block of West Highway 81 and the vacant Calco Lumberyard site on McQueeney Road as having been under consideration by the federal government. Owners of the 3.55-acre R&K property include Jack Zengler, controlling interest; the Elmer Krueger family and smaller stockholders. The lot extends back to Casten St. where the frontage is 180 feet, angled by the Missouri-Pacific railroad tracks from the 480-foot frontage on Seguin St. Present tenants include the “Sandy” Sandbergs’ New Braunfels Antiques, Heisel’s Rent All, and Superior Milk Co. Ill NEW BANK — Involved with Donnie Seay, erstwhile Guaranty State Bank former president, in plans for the new bank proposed for a site in the Courtyard shopping center are Paul Norwood of New Braunfels and W.C. Carson of San Marcos. Seay said he was asked to participate by a group of people here who wish to remain anonymous until the charter is applied for, “if, in fact, it is applied for.” Norwood’s development projects include Jahn Plaza, and Carson is in real estate and investments and a director of Hays County National Bank. The Hays County bank recently joined forces with Victoria Bankshares as did New Braunfels National Bank. LANGSTON LOT — Texas Commerce Bank has a contract to purchase from the John I Kingston family a lot on Casten St., pending approval of the Comptroller of the Currency, U.S. IX*partment of the Treasury, said bank president Robert Orr. The purchase does not include the lot on which the I Kingston home stands, fronting on Seguin St. Destined for parking, the vacant lot will extend present bank parking areas which will be diminished by expansion of the bank building. Expansion will not effect the 1870 Hinman home which now is surrounded by bank parking lot. Orr said an effort would be made to save trees on the (Kingston lot. If, sometime in the future, it might become necessary for the bank to utilize the site of the Hinman home, said Orr, the limestone structure could be dismantled and moved to another site, “although it would be extremely expensive.” Bank building expansion, which will incorporate adjoining structures on San Antonio St., has been delayed. One reason has been that preliminary cost figures came in above the amount budgeted for the project, said the bank president. Orr hopes to have the project under way by June, “certainly this year." • •• CINDY’S BAKERY Cindy Jaroszewski and lier two bakers now are working for Kroger’s, Cindy’s Town talk Bakery on West San Antonio St. having closed down Dec. 30. At Kroger’s since mid-January, Cindy now decorates cakes at both New Braunfels and San Marcos stores. Her head baker, Mario DeLeon, prepares the pan dulce and other Mexican pastries at the local store, and Joe Rodriguez works at the San Marcos Kroger’s. Cindy said most of the fixtures had been sold, and the oven was in the process of being dismantled and sold. aaa LANGFORD — Dick I*angford, who moved his furniture construction and repair business into the Star Exchange building at Conservation Plaza two weeks ago, has opted for a hand craft over health care administration. He has a degree in economics from Southwestern University at Georgetown and was well on the way to a master’s degree at Trinity when he altered course, somewhat. Dick had worked five summers framing houses, beginning on the reconstruction of the Baetge house at Conservation Plaza when still in high school. Then he worked eight months for Hitt Construction, contractors for Camp Warnecke Condominiums. Having determined that serving a furniture apprenticeship was too costly in time consumed, Dick chose to teach himself the craft by books. “I put my life savings into toots a year and a half ago,” he said. Working by his side is his wife of two weeks, Amanda Biggie I*angford of the Philadelphia area. She refinishes and does caning and rush work. Both are 24 and they met at Trinity from which she received a B A. in religion. Expressing his enjoyment in his craft. Dick enthuses about “waking up early, working hard, and going home tired at night.” Working on custom furniture, he likes designs similar to those of early Texas German pieces. He is the son of Mrs. Pat Hitt and the late Dr. Orville Umgford. Comal County surpasses goal for savings bonds Comal County had already met its 1983 sales goal for U.S. Savings Bonds long before the end of the year, according to the Department of the Treasury A total of $33,158 worth of Series EE bonds was sold in October, 1983 (the mast recent figures available), bringing the 10-month total to $627,500, said volunteer county chairman E P Nowolny. Tin* county’s 1983 dollar goal was $460,000, meaning the lO-month total has already exceeded that goal by 36 percent. Office Incumbent Re-election?
