New Braunfels Herald Zei tung Wednesday, January 18,1984 BABuilding permits continued climb in December
By DYANNE FRY Staff writer
Construction figures hit a minor peak as 1963 rolled to a close. For the month of December, City Hall issued permits for projects amounting to $1.98 million.
That doesn’t look like much compared to September, when permits added up to almost $4.6 million. But December’s total represents more activity than in August, October and November, when the monthly figures hovered between $1.5 and $1.6 million.
The largest single project on December’s books was a $384,265 addition at Conroy Industries, 3150IH 35 West. The new warehouse will measure 37,500 square feet.
Adding to the December totals were three new commercial buildings, a small hotel addition, one duplex and 18 single-family homes.
Baese St Baese is building a new store at 1293 E. Common, at a list cost of $48,000. Wingfield Construction has been contracted to finish a shell for Raymond Voges on Landa Street, for an estimated $46,800. And a $35,000 recreational hall is going up on the Schlitterbahn property at 400 N. Liberty, at the hand of Henry St Son Construction.
The Other Place is adding four motel units, at a cost of $65,000.
The last duplex started in 1984 is at 211 Redbud, and presently owned by contractor Al Fricke Jr. The price tag on that building is $50,000.
After several months of moderate prices in the residential market, the big-ticket houses seem to be coming back. Six of the 18 homes started in December were priced at $85,000 or above, with two in the $100,000 range. Topping that list was a $120,000 project at 1839 Pebblebrook, owned by G. Graham III. Greentree Con
struction Company is the contractor on that job. The company also has a smaller project (valued at $45,000) at 810 McGar.
N&R Schultz is working on a $100,000 home at 506 Oak Tree. Roy Rauch is building a $92,000 home for Willard and Jane Triska at 211 W. Tanglewood, and Kirkwood Construction has a $89,000 project going at 1340 Patio Drive.
Vermillion Housing has two $85,000 homes under construction; one for E. Badouh at 729 Summerwood and the other for Paul Flanan at 350 Fair I^ne.
New foundations are being laid in the Gruene area too. Kensing Custom Homes has a $84,499 home under way for Ed Seifert at 1753 Cypress Rapids.
More action was recorded at 218 Tanglewood when Michael Flume took out a permit for a $70,000 home. John Seidel has a $55,000 project going in the 1300 bloxk of Summerwood. Bavarian Drive saw some activity last
month, too, as Alton Kuehler started a $46,500 home for Robert Diaz.
Two new houses joined the growing neighborhood in Green Meadows. Iceland Seidel started a $60,000 project at 1060 Gardenia, and McDonald Construction has a $45,000 home under way at 1443 Camellia.
McDonald is also working in Walnut Estates, which gets itself listed in the building-permit books at least twice each month. There were two new starts there in December, both on Sun Dance, and both in the $40,000 range. Sloan Custom Homes is in charge of the second house.
Glen Hitzfelder started a house at 1413 Pam’s Path, to the tune of $42,000 Kent Willmann is working on a $60,000 home on Cardinal street, and Virgil E. Sansing is framing up a $32,000 project at 8 Rebecca Drive.
Permits were also issued in December for six mobile homes, and two buildings to be moved.

KGNB Radio recorded a high of 44 on Tuesday, followed by an overnight low of 33. However, it was colder than that by 8:30 a.m., when the mercury registered 31 degrees. Temperatures aren’t expected to get out of the mid-30s today, with a low near 20 tonight and a high near 40 on Thursday.Lake level
Canyon Uke stood at 904.31 feet above sea level Wednesday morning, up slightly from Tuesday’s level of 904.30.Texas
Most of North and West Texas shivered under the grip of a strong cold front before dawn as freezing drizzle iced bridges and overpasses and created headaches for drivers.
A travel advisory was in effect for most of North and West Texas as snow fell at Amarillo, Lubbock, San Angelo, Stephenville and Wichita Falls. Freezing drizzle was noted at Abilene and Midland and north of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Meanwhile, warm air blowing in from the Gulf of Mexico triggered small craft advisories and gale warnings along the Texas coast. The moist breezes blanketed much of East and South Texas with drizzle and fog.
Skies were cloudy statewide, except for fair skies in far West Texas near El Paso.
Pre-dawn temperatures dipped into the single digits in the Panhandle and the teens in the South Plains. Meanwhile, readings ranged from the 20s over North Central Texas to the 40s along the coast and in far South Texas.
Temperatures at 4 a.m. ranged from 4 at Amarillo to 47 at Brownsville.
Winds were mostly from the north at IO to 20 mph. However, gusts of up to 45 mph along the coast prompted marine warnings.
The forecast called for most of the precipitation to end by tonight, followed by a clearing trend through Thursday.The Nation
A storm that dumped up to a half-foot of snow on Missouri marched toward the Northeast today, the result of a collision between heavy moisture from the Gulf and an unyielding Arctic air mass that sent the mercury plunging below zero across the Plains.
Drivers spun on icy north Texas roads, and travelers’ advisories and winter storm warnings were posted today from the southern Plains to Ohio and Kentucky.
Numbing temperatures spread southward, threatening wind-chill readings of 20 degrees below zero in Oklahoma and snowfall in north Alabama, the National Weather Service said.
The front that chilled Butte, Mont., to 28 below today was on a "collision course" with moist air from the Gulf, with the resulting snow and rain expected to extend from the central states to the East Coast, said meteorologist Nolan Duke at the National Severe Storms Forecast Center in Kansas City, Mo.
As much as six inches of snow was forecast for New Jersey, and parts of New England also braced for heavy accumulations. "A mixed bag" of winter weather in Alabama was expected to include snow in the north, the National Weather Service office in Birmingham predicted Five inches of new snow blanketed Springfield and Joplin, Mo., early today, and 6 inches was recorded in the southern part of the state.
Tulsa, Okla., had 2 inches, as did Fayetteville, Ark. Accumulations were also reported today in Texas, Indiana and Kentucky.
"Ifs generally chilly and going downhill," said Ronn Irving, a forecaster in Denver.
Colorado temperatures were in the minus-20s, prompting officials to warn parents not to let their children dawdle on the way home from school.

Garden Ridge zoning hearing Thursday
Garden Ridge residents are encouraged to air their views on zoning at a town meeting to be held at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Bracken Fire Station
The city Planning and Zoning Commission is hosting the informal session, and would like to get as much public input as possible.
Commission member Maynard
Hamilton said some 250 flyers had been left at Garden Ridge homes, announcing the meeting and outlining 13 possible zoning classifications. Hamilton said he'd listed every kind of zoning he thought the people might want to talk about, "even including one I know they're really going to bite on ... one for mobile homes,” he said.
Hamilton thinks most Garden Ridge
residents are opposed to having mobile homes in the city at all. If they are. they’ll get a chance to say so Thursday night.
There are only three types of zoning in the city at present: residential, residential-agricultural and business The Planning and Zoning Commission is in the process of expanding that ordinance, and will present a new version for City Council review some time this spring

By Stella Wilder WEDNESDAY, JAN. It Bom today, you are first and foremost a glib talker. You have since very early childhood bom able to talk your way into or out of virtually any situation. So long as you use this ability wisely, you can count it a gemune boon. If, however, you use it merely for your own advantage, with no regard for others' being disadvantaged, you will ultimately come to see it as one of your greatest drawbacks. You possess versatility, charm and the kind of personal magnetism that insures popularity.
Although you are extremely well liked and always welcome at any gathering, you are not basically a sociable person. You need and enjoy your time alone — a fact which must be taken into account when considering marriage. Life with another will not be easy.
