From staff and wire reports
COUNCIL TO MEET MONDAY - The New
Braunfels City Council will have its regular meeting at 6 p.m. Monday in city council chambers, 424 S. Casten Ave.
According to the agenda, a resolution will be presented to the city council approving a recommendation of the New Braunfels Industrial Development Corporation to offer financial incentives to Altra Industrial Notion, Inc., to assist in locating their new coupling manufacturing and management operation in New Braunfels.
HOSPITAL SALE OFF
— 'Hie Sid Peterson Memorial I lospital Board of Directors issued a statement late f riday announcing that the contract for the sale of the complex on Sidney Baker Street has been terminated.
Granger MacDonald, president and CEO of MacDonald and Associates, attributed the deal breakdown to the company’s inability to secure the city of Kerrville a tenant.
“As with any large real estate development, when we lost our anchor tenant it drastically impacted the financial feasibility of the project. We pursued a couple of alternative options, but just couldn’t make them work out,” MacDonald said.
The contract termination potentially leaves the property — an anchor in downtown Kerrville — vacant after the completion of the new Peterson Regional Medical Center.
CEO Pat Murray said plans to move into the new facility in March 2008 will not be affected by changes in the plans to sell the current property.
■The city of New Braunfels paid $1 per square foot for the new city parkland. The approximate price paid per acre for the land was $43,000. The information was incorrect in Saturday’s edition of the I lerald-Zeitung.

Teen charged with robbing gas station
By Suzanne Ashe
A 17-year-old New Braunfels resident was arrested early Saturday morning in connection with a local convenience store robbery that police still are investigating.
The teen, whose name was not being released Saturday, was booked into Comal County jail on one count each of robbery and evading arrest or detention using a motor vehicle, New Braunfels police said.
The arrest stemmed from a call officers received at 3:45 a.m. Saturday that the Fast-Way convenience store at 1412 E. Common St. had been robbed.
Officers searched the area, quickly spotting a vehicle that matched the description
of the robber’s. But when officers tried to stop the driver in the 4200 block of Interstate 35 South, the driver sped away hut crashed the vehicle, causing it to roll over, police said.
The driver jumped out of the vehicle into an open field where officers chased him for about a quarter of a mile before he was apprehended and taken to McKenna Memorial I lospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the accident.
Two juvenile females were in the vehicle at the time of the wreck. Both girls were taken to McKenna for treatment.
Police are continuing their investigation into the incident, but no other arrests had been made as of Saturday.
