New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 9, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 2A    New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung    Wednesday. January 9,1985 Homes, but no laundromat Planners approve subdivision after eliminating commercial lot By DANA STELL Staff writer A proposed 29-acre subdivision off Alves Lane received preliminary approval from Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday night. Commission members also agreed to recommend to City Council that the zoning on the tract be changed from B-l (conventional and mobile home) to R-l (single family). Developers WAR Consolidated, represented by Bill Reimer, also had asked for C-l zoning on the one lot that faces Alves Lane, where a laundromat or convenience store was planned. However, Commission members explained that their policy is to not have any driveways directly on a major thoroughfare, such as Alves Lane. So, along with denying a rezoning request for the commercial Planning roundup lot, the Commission agreed to also eliminate the odd-shaped lot completely and incorporate that acreage into three other residential lots. All residential lots in Northview Subdivision face inward and do not empty onto a major thoroughfare. Reimer told the Commission that the subdivision will contain lots priced between $9,000 and $10,700 and homes in the area will cost between $55,000 and $65,000. “The market in New Braunfels does not have housing in subdivisions that can support people of moderate incomes — starters and retirees," Reimer said. “We’re looking at a service that hasn’t been done in a long time. We're looking at a public need.’’ A resident of the mobile home park near the proposed subdivision wanted to ensure that builders in the area follow strict regulations as residents of his area have. Reimer said that builders in Northview Subdivision, which was purchased from Canyon Heights, Inc., will have the same restrictions as those in Canyon Heights. “We incorporate the Canyon Heights restrictions and add the further restriction of no mobile homes there," Reimer said. Also Tuesday, Planning and Zoning Commission: — approved the final plat for Taylor Property, which is building a medical supply office and warehouse in the FM 306 area.

Wesley Andrew Brooks, 36, has been missing since Sunday. Brooks, a scuba diver, left his clothing in his car, which was found Monday in Comal Park. His scuba gear was gone Rick Patterson of Canyon Lake was fishing near the park Sunday afternoon and reported to game warden Neil Etheridge that he had seen a diver in the area at that time. Ehteridge and Patterson met Tuesday morning at the lake and the fisherman told the game warden what happened. “He saw a man in scuba gear out in the water getting ready to dive — he was wetting his mask," Etheridge said. Patterson told the game warden that he looked off and when he looked back, the diver was gone. Patterson said he assumed the man was making a dive. Divers will be brought in Friday to look for Brooks if the weather is clear and there is no more rain, Etheridge said. Deep water and a brushy botton prohibit the use of body drags.

Old roof beams being removed By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer The support beams many might have thought were permanent fixtures in the New Braunfels High School parking lot are finally vacating the premises this week. Superintendent Charles Bradberry announced the impending departure without fanfare, but discussion of patching the parking lot to remove all signs of the support beams was discussed. Student representative Rhonda Fritsche said that her class had been freshmen when the beams were first removed from the cafeteria and gymnasium. There had been some talk of using them as seating for their the graduation ceremonies this May, Fritsche said, proving it is possible to become attached to anything that stays around long enough. The support beams had to be removed because they had begun sagging. The problem was discovered when the roof was about to be repaired, and an engineer’s report revealed the condition of the single-T’s. The school district, finding that company that had made the beams had gone out of business, sued the company that had bought it out. That suit is still in the courts. Latest appeal fails to free Odette Port HOUSTON (AP) - The attorney for a woman jailed for failing to testify about a slaying in which her stepson is accused says he’s depressed by yet another refusal to free her. U.S. District Judge Carl Bue Tuesday became the third federal judge to deny Odette Port’s appeal. Mrs. Port was jailed Sept. 12 for refusing to answer a grand jury’s questions about the June 7 killing of mail carrier Debora Sue Schatz. Seventeen-year-old David Port is charged with murder in the slaying. He is free on $20,000 bond. The murder case has been transferred to New Braunfels on a change of venue after the youth’s attorneys argued it had received too much publicity in the Houston area for Port to be tried fairly. The case is set to go to trial Feb. 25. Bue rejected an argument by Mrs. Port’s attorney, Randy Schaffer, that continued jail custody would not prompt her to cooperate with grand jurors, whose term expires Jan. 31. Schaffer said he has been unable to “make the court come to grips” with the idea that Mrs. Port could not help in the state’s search for grounds for capital murder charge. “I’m getting tired of saying I’m disappointed," Schaffer said. “We thought legally we were in a sound position." He said he plans no further appeal. The grand jury’s term expires Jan. 31. Bue held that the contempt citation issued by State District Judge I.D. McMaster has produced the desired effect by compelling Mrs. Port to testify about the case. Mrs. Port and her husband, Bernard, were jailed last fall. They have argued their testimony would violate a parent-child privilege similar to one that allows spouses not to testify against each other. But Texas law does not recognize a pa rent-child privilege. In November, the couple testified several hours before the grand jury. But McMaster freed only Bernard Port and ruled Mrs. Port’s testimony was not sufficient to purge her of the contempt ruling. Prosecutors contend Mrs. Port was the first person to return home the day Miss Schatz was killed and could have information to warrant upgrading the charges against David Port to capital murder, which carries a possible death sentence. Bue said Tuesday he was “adopting the reasoning’’ of federal judges James DeAnda and Norman Black, who also have denied requests to set bond for Mrs. Port and permit her release. “On Nov. 7, Mrs. Port, while still refusing to answer all of the questions propounded to her by the grand jury, did answer many of the questions," Bue said in seven-page ruling. ar MEN’S SWEATERS!
