•Proposition 3 asked voters if the city should oppose the permits by spending city rands; 1,317 voters voted for it while 863 voted against it.
•Proposition 4 asked voters if the city should pay for the fight against Lafarge/Systech by calling a bond election; 134 said yes, 1,891 voters said no. «
•Proposition S asked voters if the city should increase property taxes to fight Lafarge/Systech; 63 said yes, 1,939 said no.

SAFE members asked voters to support Propositions I and 3.
“We’re really, I think, gratified to see that the vast majority of everyone in New Braunfels is sending a clear message to Lafarge and Systech and we’re hoping that they hear that,” said SAFE member Paul remington.
Pennington said the board of directors of SAFE will probably, in the next few days, ask federal, state and local representatives to draft a “uni-.
fled, single farer” to be aam to the board of directors of Lafhrge asking that the firm withdraw its permit requests.
A statement released Saturday night by Fred Rooster, president of Lafarge Corp. Southern Region said: “The election is one step in the process and we feel our announced moratorium and environmental assessment will answer the community’s concerns and questions.
“We have set a six- to nine-month moratorium and a project manager will oversee an independent environmental assessment performed by a professional research organization. We firmly believe the proposed project is environmentally sound and completely safe. We were happy to caU the moratorium and to underwrite the independent environmental assessment. Lafarge/Systech have been good neighbors for many years and have long-term commitments in the New Braunfels community.”
The returns from the election Saturday will be canvassed 5 pm. Jan. 23 at the New Braunfels Municipal Building Meeting Room.

Tina Cruz, 18, of Austin said she believes people are unaware of what is happening in the Middle East.
“I think it’s kind of shocking that people are so oblivious to what's going on,” she said. “I think as citizens of the United States that we should be involved and we should know what's going on. It’s
Carmelo LoNigro, 18, said it’s a war over oil.
"I truly don’t believe that we should be fighting over oil,” he said. “It seems that we're just greedy tor as much oil as we can possibly get. It's sort of like, along the lines, of what happened in Vietnam. No one really knew what happened. I'm just scared that this is going to escalate to that level. A lot of people died in Vietnam I just hope a lot of people don’t die over there.”

New Braunfels a safer place to live took off in the 1980s when his ideas led to the creation of the mayoral-appointed 26-member Safe City Commission. He wrote the Crime Control Plan, which is the framework of the commission. The plan stresses that community spirit along with people helping people with common goals, crime can be controlled.
In June 1989 he was awarded the Ed Murphy Memorial Award for Lawman of the Year for his work in making the community a better place to live. When he received the honor, in the memory of Ed Murphy, who was killed in the line of duty in the 1970s, he said, “I hope what I do is what Ed was vying to do.”
He always had a keen interest in his officcrs and continually fought for pay raises and better benefits for them. He once told the Herald, “We've got the kind of talent and quality people that the Dallas Police Department has. But there is no way we can compete with Dallas on wages.”
He also was a member of the Breakfast Lions Dub, Elks Lodge, Guadalupe Valley Peace Officers Association, Cal-Tex Motorcycle Club, Texas Police Chiefs Association and the National Academy Associates of Texas.
After 17 years with the police department, Mr. Boeck was appointed in June 1990 as the city's special projects director and worked on the airport master plan and plans for a new city golf course. He said it was hard leaving the department after so many years.
“All but a handful of people I hired. I’ve watched grow,” he said. “It's hard to leave.”
He is survived by his wife, mother, daughter, son, brother and six grandchildren. Memorials can be made to the Texas Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in Austin.

Pro-life activities will continue Jan. 26 when area residents travel to Austin and join groups from other cities at the Texas Rally for Life. Last year, that annual march up Congress Avenue attracted more than 7,000 participants. Because the Legislature is now in session, rally organizers anticipate an even larger turnout this year.
Among those participating in the rally will be Maria Crawford, founder of the Illinois chapter of Black Americans for Life; Akua Furlow, Life Advocates of Houston; and Dr. Richard Land, executive director of the Christian Life Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
The rally will begin at I pjn. at 4th Street and South Congress Avenue.

tification through AACOG’s law enforcement program. AACOG also sought to provide 9-1-1 emergency service to Comal County.
Currently, AACOO is involved in the process of applying for a $10,000 grant for a state transit system in this area, Notzon said.
Eighty-eight percent of the money received from local governments by AACOO is returned to the community, Notzon said. “When given an opportunity I can prove to diem that for $1,100 they’re generating much more. Then you are talking about the cost-effective expenditure of public funds, and I think it is.”
