New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 28, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels, Herald-Ze/Timp ★ M ALDEF. Continued from Page I District I and the at-large places will be selected in 1985. Districts 2 and 4 will come up in 1986. “They have never conceded that (the election schedule) to our knowledge up until now,” Brad-berry said. Also as part of the settlement, the school district wiU pay $10,500 of MALDEF’s claimed $32,000 in attorney fees and court costs. Sanders-Castro said the settlement became more feasible after depositions were taken from each school board member and after the Department of Justice requested more information from NBISD in its review, which delayed the preclearance. “I think they (NBISD officials) started looking at it as a question as to whether they could win at court,” Sanders-Castro said. The original lawsuit was filed in April, 1983 against NBISD because of the district's previous election plan of seven numbered places. The school district proposed the ‘5-2’ election plan as a compromise. That system offered two districts with large minority populations. MALDEF wanted an election system based on seven single-member districts. The final settlement did not overwhelm the pontiffs. “We're in the same position accepting the 5-2 plan as the school board was accepting our 7-0 plan,” Torres said. “I guess you could say there were concessions on both sides,” Sanders-Castro said, adding she believed the pontiffs “bent over backwards” to reach a settlement. As far as the settlement receiving approval from the Department of Justice and U.S. District Court, she said, “I don’t anticipate any problems.” Torres accused the NBISD school board of spending a large sum of money “needlessly” in handling this case. The lawsuit cost the school district in excess of $38,500 in attorney fees, which does not include the settlement figure. He explained the board had the power to change the system without spending the money used to hire San Antonio legal counsel William T. Armstrong and Dr. Tucker Gibson, who helped devise the ‘5-2’ system. “I think they should be blamed for spending all this money needlessly, not as we have been reading in the papers and the press that the school board has been trying to blame us for spending all this money,” Torres said. He said the length of the case was caused by the district’s own “ineptitude” for following the advice of NBISD’s attorney Marion J. Borchers. “He’s been giving the school district the same advice for 15-20 years, and he’s still being hired,” Torres said. Borchers could not be reached for comment. Espinoza, Torres, and the Zamoras also complained that media coverage was one-sided in favor of NBISD. ★ Henry. ★ Fires. Continued from Page I aggravated, because we’ll be removing several tow-away signs,” Tieken said. Liberty Avenue is only about 12 blocks long, but it runs past some of the most popular tourist attractions in town: the Schlitterbahn and Bavarian Village near one end, and Prince Solms Park at the other. There are also a number of houses on the street. City Council created the first “no parking” zone in 1980 at the request of residents, who said they were tired of having cars parked in front of their houses, their mailboxes and sometimes even their driveways, Saturday and Sunday. Tieken also wondered what neighborhood residents might think about a parking lot on the Henrys’ three vacant lots. When someone proposes a zone change, the council has to hold a public hearing, and give surrounding property owners a chance to speak. “What if we had some property owners ... who did not want the parking, and they objected?” she asked Chunn. “There’s not going to be much opportunity for further negotiation,” the attorney admitted. “You’ve simply got to cut off something like this, where there’s a lawsuit, at some point.” Citizen Leonard Meyer, of 274 Liberty Ave., wasn’t pleased with the settlement either. He said he had some difficulty following Chunn’s presentation, and wished he had had better information. “I don’t see anything about it on the agenda,” he added. (The matter was brought up under “old business.” Council met in closed session for almost an hour before the meeting began.) “If it had been there, I think you would have had more people here from liberty Street.” Mayor O.A. Stratemann Jr. told Meyer that even if the council hadn't come up with a perfect solution, it had made a decision that had to be made. He said the council passed the 1980 “no parking” ordinance in an attempt to make things easier for one group of residents, only to find later that it had stepped on another group’s toes. “I’m man enough to say I might have made a mistake,” he said. “If we can carry (the settlement) on through, I think it’ll be very good for everybody,” said plaintiff Robert Henry. “Including leonard, whether he likes it or not. ★ Garbage^ ★ MAD. Continued from Page I gonna vote for any kind of rate increase.’ But we didn’t come here for a popularity contest; we came here for a practical purpose.” Rogers, Stratemann and Mayor Pro Tem I jiverne Eberhard voted against $1 hike. Rushing, Espinoza and Tieken voted for it. Donnie Seay, who left the meeting early, missed the garbage hike vote. Eberhard then moved to accept Delashmutt’s $2 hike. Rogers and Stratemann vted with her. The other three voted “no," for another tie. Continued from Page I Hispanics will continue to campaign for Leggett. “This is not intended to run down Bob Krueger. We just feel like Doggett can do more for the Mexican-Americans in Texas,” Espinoza said. He said there was “definitely disagreement” in the local MAD chapter. But he feels some difference of opinion is healthy, as long as it's handled nght. “I think if some people are for Lloyd Doggett and others are for Bob Krueger, that’s great. But let’s keep it above the table,” Espinoza said. ★ Eberhard Continued from Page I April, along with the terms of Donnie Seay and Barbara Tieken. So far, Tieken is the only incumbent that has filed for re-election. Seay hasn’t made a firm announcement yet, but he said some weeks ago that lie probably would not run. There’s plenty of competition for the three at-large seats, though. Challengers include builders Robert Nohrn and Esther Seidel, designer Rolf Moore, retired resort owner Robert Henry, New Braunfels Smokehouse manager Mike Dietert and dentist Joe Kuehler. Ladies!

Officials said the first Blanco County blaze, fanned by 50 mph winds, started about noon Sunday in Johnson City and was brought under control Sunday night. The second fire, east of Johnson City, lasted until 2 a.m. Monday. Firefighter Tom Ross, 39, of Spicewood, was trying to reach the Johnson County fires when his fire truck was struck head-on by another vehicle. He died Sunday at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin. Fire officials in Fort Worth and Dallas said about 70 grass fires were reported in the area Sunday, one of which burned about 2,000 acres of prairie grass and severely burned four volunteer firefighters. Mahlon Hammetter, a spokesman with the Texas Forest Service in the East Texas city of Lufkin, said Monday that grass and brush fires are not uncommon in Texas this time of year. “It’s the worst fire season of the year because it’s dry, ifs windy and the grass hasn’t cured yet,” Hammetter said.
