New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 16, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2    Herald-Zeitung, New Braunfels, TexasHydro_ Friday, January 16,1986 Obituaries Continued from Page I they do not want to authorize permanent financing until all government approval for the project is in place. Specht said Thursday that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit to construct will be issued Feb. 19, according to corps officials. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Texas Water Commission have given GBRA their approval for construction of the generating plant. Pedemales Electric Cooperative is appealing the water commission license. A hearing in Texas Court of Appeals is scheduled for Feb. 4. GBRA officials have requested changes to the FERC license which would reduce the amount of water to be pumped over the dam during work on the inside of the dam and would eliminate a requirement of a constant minimum flow from the dam. NBU Director Al Kosko said Thursday that if the minimum flow requirement were not eliminated from the FERC license, he would not continue to support the project. “I would want this project to come to a standstill if we can not go back to flow of the river” as a release requirement from the dam. Kosko said. The minimum release was includ ed in the FERC license on the advice of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department. That department recommended the release to enhance the fish population in the stream below the dam. “The purpose of the dam was to protect and preserve the people not to protect and preserve fish,” said NBU Director Robert Orr. Gene Momhinweg, president of the NBU board, spoke out in favor of the project. He said that he has considered the pros and cons of the project for some time. “I was not able to make up my mind real fast,” he said. “I was on the fence. The cost is high...and all data of this project is based on estimates.” Momhinweg said the most recent estimates of the project portray it as a profitable one for the city. He said that if the project sees reality, he will do everything he can to make sure the cost is beneficial to NBU customers. Orr termed the project a ‘‘farsighted” move on the part of GBRA. He said legal procedures for opposition to the project are necessary but have been exhausted. “They complicate the issue but they are right and, God bless America, it’s great that those protections are there,” he said. TRAPS Continued from Page I W’hatley refusing any accolades, said “congratulations toWurstfest. It is a very significant and competitive award He noted that the association won over entries from parks and leisure groups from all over the state including Dallas. Austin and Midland The 25-year old annual German sausage and beer festival, a 10-day attraction held every October that attracts more than 145,000 visitors from across the country, has donated more than $953,000 for recreational facility funds Improvements include maintenance in I.anda Park, landscaping along the Comal River, construction aid for Prince Solms and Hinman Island parks, as well as money to save a 285-year-old oak tree in Landa Park. The near ll million figure exceeds total funds ever generated by city general obligation bond issues, according to Whatley. With annual donations going to about 20 local organizations and monies raised by the 30 civic groups that participate as concessionaires, approximately $360,000 goes toward local projects each year as a result of the festival. Noting that planning for this year’s event by the association’s 194 members is already underway, Herbelin said Wurstfest encompasses nearly 2.000 volunteers annually to stage the event. Wurstfest was tabbed last November as one of the top attractions in the world.
