New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 5, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas ★ Slabs_ ( unturned from Page I ‘‘(The slab) rimy riot bust up or crack up the first year or two or three,” said Richter, “but down the road, somebody’s going to have trouble with it." lf the house has been sold in that tune, it aught be very difficult to find the original engineer and "hold his feet to the fire," he added. And a City Council that wasn’t even around when the house was built may be faced with the problem of cleaning up the mess, said Municipal Judge John Phillips. "One of the reasons that I think a previous city council wrote such a stiff ordinance is to avoid scone of the problems you run into with lesser slabs," Craigmile said. Hector Tamayo, assistant city maqnager of New Braunfels, is familiar with the concept of engineered slabs, but wasn’t sure whether they were provided for in his city building code. In any event, "I don’t know of any cases where we have (issued a permit for one)," he said. -OYANNE FRY gbfenjoy CentiarWKIng Size ar and Low Tar.★ Phones Continued from Page I If people are moving or closing out their phone service, they should call the Southwestern Bell Office in San Antonio at 1*951-7222 and get a work order number. This type of transaction can’t be completed at Landa Pharmacy without a work order number. For general questions or other services like ordering a phone, changing current phone styles, or telephone repair, people should call AT&T at 1-800-555-8111. If people want to buy their old SW Bell phone they are now leasing from AT&T, this number can also be used for relaying that message. Just about everyone who comes into Landa Pharmacy for phone-related business fills out a memo-type form. "Those are used to insure proper credit on the customer’s bill," Raton said, "and are mailed to the proper people daily." For the month of December, the pharmacy carried out 320 phone-related transactions, most of which were people turning their old SW Bell phones. "That number doesn’t count all the people who came in wanting services we don’t provide," Raton added. The whole idea behind being a limited service center, Raton said, "is to save people in this area a trip to San Antonio. We’re trying to offer some services, but we can’t do than we’re authorized to do."

Unofficial reports indicate that another vehicle collided with his motorcycle at IH 35 and Engel Road, and then left the scene. A state trooper was dispatched to the scene at IO p.m., and Edwards was taken to McRenna by the New Braunfels Emergency Medical Service, which reported a possible fracture to the right leg.

The settlement, reached at a breakfast meeting among attorneys for Manges, Mobil, the State of Texas and Exxon Corp., was to be presented to Visiting State District Judge George Miller at an 11:15 a.m. hearing. The settlement provides for Mobil to transfer all its leases and equipment to a trustee for the state and Manges, according to a statement by l,and Commissioner Carry Mauro. Manges and the state then will lease the land and will receive proceeds from current production and the new leases. Mauro said the proposed agreement will give the state ownership of about $2 million in drilling equipment, and will boost its income on the leases from $21,000 to $350,000 a month. The state’s acreage contains 47 producing oil wells and six producing gas wells, with a gross income of $3.9 million. Mauro said the agreement was reached after Exxon’s chief counsel. Ren Roberts, arrived in l^iredo about midnight. "There were a lot of ruotors and misinformation about the state’s interest and we were able to clear up his areas of concern," Mauro said. “My experience is that you need to go eyeball-to-eyeball on something like this to reach un agreement." A third party already has offered to lease the land. Mauro said $2.5 million has been put into escrow by Shearson-Amencan Express, a trustee for the Florida firm of Estate Investments Inc. He said another $50 million is to be paid Jan. IO but that the state does not consider itself bound by the contract with Shearson-Ainerican Express and has six days lo determine if • that’s the best offer.” Mauro said at least two other firms have offered to either match or beat the Shearson-American Express offer. Mauro also said that since yesterday he has had field inspectors on the Duval County property and that by the end of the day an inventory will have been completed of the equipment on site and all of the signs will have been changed from Mobil Oil to State of Texas The suit against Mobil was filed in 1982 when Manges, a Duval County rancher, alleged that company had not adhered strictly to a drilling schedule required by a lease dating back to 1932 on Manges’ ranch. Manges claimed all the oil drilled by Mobil since 1932 as his own and the state later joined Manges in the suit because it owns some of the mineral rights to the land. Although Exxon owns 30.9 percent of the nunerals on tile acres in dispute, the company had not entered the negotiations until last month. Attorneys said Wednesday the agreement under discussion would turn Mobil’s lease on Manges’ ranch over to the McAllen State Hank, which would act as trustee and lease the land for an un-deternuned amount of money to a company interested in drilling. Mauro said current production from existing wells would put $12,000 a day in the state’s public school fund, about $44 million over the next IO years, the life of Hie current lease. Mobil would not make any cash payments, but it would lose its right to tile lease and would have to abandon about $2.5 audion worth of drilling equipment and records on oil and gas exploration on the millionaire's 64,060-acre ranch. Continued from Page I Councilmember Neil Craigmile, in charge of streets and drainage, turned in a requisition for 17 new street signs, one stop sign, one "stop ahead,’’ two "dead ends" and one right turn warning. He said all those are needed to replace signs that are missing or damaged beyond use. In addition, a stop sign at Teakwood and FM 3009 needs to be re-planted, Craigmile said. "It’s leaning up against the telephone pole." In his five years Qn the City Council, Craigmile has had to order new signs twice before. He doesn’t remember needing this many in the past. "Maybe somebody needed more paper on the wall," he said. Two city-wide events are scheduled later this month. A pet vaccination clinic will be held at City Hall on Jan. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon. Local veterinarians will be on duty, and tags will be issued to every pet vaccinated. The Planning and Zoning Commission is planning a town meeting at the Bracken Fire Station on Jan. 19, to get citizen input on the city zoning laws. The commission is in the process of expanding the present ordinance, which only provides for three zoning categories:    residential, residential- agricultural and business. Comoiission secretary Maynard Hamilton said the town meeting would be a "wide open public forum," and informal session just for the exchange of ideas. He hopes City Council members will attend, but this will not be a council meeting, and no official business will be conducted.
