Bush started his keynote speech a the New Braunfels Republican Women's 30th Adversary Dinner Monday night by explaining why a man would give up the “best job in the world"—managing partner of the Texas Rangers—to nm fbr governor. Bush, the son of former President George Bush, is a Republican candidate for Texas Governor. “Why in the world the year we're picked to win the American League West, the year we're opening a fabulous monument to baseball in Texas, with my office overlooking a grass Centerfield, would I want to leave the best job in the world to run for governor?** asked Bush. “Because I love Texas.’* He went on to explain his concern over high property taxes, poor quality education, juvenile crime and the growth of state government. Bush said his platform includes support for entrepreneurs and small businessmen, individual accountability and public policy supporting families. He pointed to public concern about Texas schools, crime, increases in property taxes and the state's leaders as evidence tint a change was called for in the Governor's office. On the issues which he identified as mqjor in his campaign he made specific proposals. “For example, in my opinion, anybody who abandons their family, after due wanting ftom the state ought to have any _______ licenses issued by the state suspended,*' said Bush, referring to individual accountability- “I believe 14-year olds as adults when necessary.** Bush also said he would work to reduce the Texas Education Agency power to regulate local districts. Asking for support from the group, Bush was disarmingly charming when - he related a personal family conversation 'I’m kind of hard on tho adult criminal because I believe most of them are beyond rehabilitation. Build the beds and get them out of our hair.’ about his chances of winning. “When I called my mother and told - George W. Bush her i was going ■' ■ to mn for Gov- before any child goes on welfare the mother must identify the father. People must be responsible for their individual behavior. “I'm kind of hard on the adult criminal because I believe most of them are beyond rehabilitation. Build the beds and get them out of our hair. I do believe we can save our kids. We need to rewrite the juvenile justice code, build detention camps, make sure that any 18 year old kid anight carrying a gun with hunting exemptions immediately goes to a detention camp for one year and the gun is destroyed, and try emor of Texas, in typical bold way she said, 'you can't win,"' said Bush. “I said ‘obviously you haven’t been living here in the state of Texas.’ She believes I can win now, she’s been talking to her neighbors.” And, following a reference to the probability that he would get all of “Claytie’s votes,” Bush said he would be smarter than Clayton Williams, however. “I’m going to shake her hand” he said. Bush ended his twenty-minute address on an inspiring note—“What Texans can dream, Texans can do.” Hermki-Zeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH George W.

City to move ahead with airport land condemnation By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer New Braunfels City Council members approved a resolution Monday night authorizing the city to move ahead with condemnation proceedings in order to acquire 14.82 acres of airspace at the end of a runway at the New Braunfels Municipal Airport However, negotiations for the airspace are continuing. The airspace is owned by the Marvin Westmeyer and Wayman Krueger families. The airspace is needed in order for the city to receive a $1.4 million grant from the federal government. The grant will be used for airport improvements and the acquisition of the airspace. “I think we are real close in negotiations,” said Mayor Rudy Seidel. ‘I think we can make a settlement. Because of the time element we have to start the proceedings. We hope to come up with a compromise before the proceedings begin.” ‘The Kruegers and the Westmeyers are very reasonable and want to be cooperative. They still want to have the peace of mind to know their residences aren't going to be moved,” he said. Nancy Krueger, Marvin Westmey-er’s daughter, asked the council to table the matter until the negotiations were completed. “It is difficult to make an important decision in only IO days that will affect us and our children for the rest of our lives,” she said. Curtis Saur, who also lives near the airport, urged the council to remember the heritage surrounding some farm and ranch owners in the area. 'To us, it’s like a game of Pac Man - a little bite here, a little bite there and then it's gone,” he said. Airport Advisory Board Chairman Ed Goerges asked the council to move ahead in order to prevent any delays in obtaining the grant. “lf, for any reason, there is a delay HeraH-Zaitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Veronica Sarkozl, city secretary, administered the oath of office to newly-elected city council member Mary SerokJ during lee! nlght'e city council meeting. in the time frame, we as a city can lose every bit of that fonding,” he said. Goerges explained to the council that 92.5 percent of the funds will be used for maintenance and to rebuild existing facilities. “We need to come to a peaceful, nice solution," he said “This has to be a win-win situation. All sides must be considered in this.” The motion to approve the resolution was made by council member Jan Kennedy and was seconded by coun cil member Chris Bowers. District 4 council member Paul Fraser and District 2 council member Mary Serold voted against the resolution. In a related matter, the council approved a resolution asking for a variance for the Krueger’s and Weft-meyer’s home should New Braunfels need to acquire land in the Alture. The variance must be granted by the Federal Aviation Administration NBPD officers confiscate cocaine, arrest two people By JENMPIR ROMPS L Staff Writer New Braunfels police officers confiscated IO grams of antiae and arrested two people in a drug bust that occurred Sunday night According to Capt.
