Honor takes councilman by surprise
The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce honored City Councilman and Smithson Valley High School Principal Joe Rogers with its Besserung Award Friday night.
No one was more surprised than Rogers, who had joked earlier that he thought it was about time he got the award.
“Boy, that caught me off guard,” he told the audience when he accepted the award. “I’m so glad my mother’s here tonight. She asked me for $9 and I wouldn’t lend it to her,” he joked in reference to the price of the banquet ticket.
“It’s great to be here. Thank you very much,” he told the audience.
Rogers was honored for his contribution to the youth, arts and political arena in the community. The Besserung is the Chamber's highest award.
About 800 persons attended the annual chamber banquet Friday night at the Civic Center. The award came at tile end of the banquet program, the “Chamber Olympics.”
The banquet also included highlights from the chamber's activities in 1984 O.A. “Skip” Stratemann Jr., John Poster, Robert Orr and Tom Bluntzer were honored with life membership in the chamber for their work with the Blue Coats.
Immediate past president Robert Orr reflected on his year as president in 1984.
“I can tell you that the view going out is different from the view going in,” Orr said. He thanked chamber members for their support and work through the year.
“The organization will go on, it will continue to prosper in spite of

Commissioners study plans for new annex
By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writ ar
Architect Christopher DuStephono submitted another drawing of the space allocation m the proposed Courthouse Annex and Courthouse during Thurday’s commissioner court meeting.
This drawing reflects feedback from commissioners and heads of departments DiStephano received on his last drawing, and will be amended several more times before the plans are fixed.
The district attorney ’s office would increase almost fourfold, from 1,185 square feet to 4,340 square feet when it moves to the annex, according to this drawn*. The dramatic increase was noticed by commissioner Bill
George, and questioned One commissioner pointed out that originally the district attorney’s office was drawn in as the entire third floor of the annex.
An earlier drawing also had the grand jury room inside the district attorney’s complex of offices But after removing other chunks from his piece of the pie, the architect said the quarters were too cramped for the grand jury room in there.
DLStephano drew it in across the hall That’s good. I think it smacks of too much control of the grand jury by the D.A when it was part of his office,” County Judge Fred Clark commented George still felt the office wa* too large, even after Clark explained that in the near future District At
torney Hill Sc brooder would probably be adding an investigator .md another assistant district attorney When a problem arose in discussing the space given to the county attorney. Clark suggested putting him in part of the district attorney’s allocated space County Attorney Bill Renner was placed in the Courthouse s second floor along with the county court-at-law courtroom, clerk’s office and judge's chamber The floor spare showed 760 vjare feet rn the current chawing, compared to the 580 he occ upies on the third floor of the courthouse norn. This gives very little room for growth.
