River Road now passable
Parking ban a success
I .aw enforcement officers and most merchants are pleased with the results of the first weekend with noparking signs on the entire length of River Road Both constables reported a smooth weekend, and the sheriffs department also said they had few problems arise from the new no-parking rule.
‘People were cooperative,” Constable Werner Kiesling of Precinct I said. “It worked out better than we thought.”
County Commissioner Lorenzo “Yankee” Camarillo rode with Kiesling on Saturday and he reported that traffic ran smoothely.
“It looks to me like its the best thing that could happen to River
Road,” Camarillo said. “There were quite a few people, but a lot were parking inside the camp grounds. There was a lot more room for an emergency vehicle to get through.” Sheriff Walter Fellers said from all reports that he recieved, there had been fewer problems along River

BETHESDA, Md. <AP) With four stark words the president has cancer" the government’s top cancer surgeon cast a shadow of uncertainty over Ronald Reagan and his presidency Although doctors say a recurrence is unlikely, the once extraordinarily healthy president will tx* watched closely for any new sign of malignancy.
The finding Monday that the tumor taken from Reagan's colon 48 hours earlier was malignant and had
spread to the wall of his bowel won’t change the plan to discharge the president from Bethesda Naval Hospital this weekend or early next week. his doctors said This morning’s White House medical update said the president slept well during the night and was examined by physicians at 8 a.rn EDT. It described him as being in excellent spirits and said, His condition is excellent; his vital signs — temperature, pulse, blood
pressure, respiration — are within normal ranges ’’
The president spent part of the morning reading newspapers and watching television.
Reagan walked around his suite Monday and planned to do so again today. “The president experienced some abdominal discomfort when moving, but has not required any pain medication," the statement said
Zipp resigns county post
Zipp, who would have come up for re-election in November 1986, has served most of one term as a special judge for County Court-at-Law Judge D H. Buchanan after he suffered a stroke.
“I will be happy to serve as a special judge until my successor (is elected), should you so desire," Zipp wrote “I have tried to do a good job by being fair and impartial, while maintaining a high level of judicial efficiency.”
Zipp said he had been considering this for several months, and that several personal factors were weighed in making this decision “I have two kids that are looking at going to college,” Zipp said. "There are many people to consider besides just myself. But I have enjoyed serving the people of Comal County, and I don’t intend to leave the county in the lurch. I will continue to serve as I have, if they want me to serve."
Zipp said he plans to return to his private practice.
“There are aspects of being a
defense lawyer, of try ing a case, that I miss," the judge said.
When he was the special judge while Buchanan was ill, he was able to continue his private practice as well as sit on the bench he said.
Other changes afoot include the resignation of Irvin Boamet as parttime assistant county attorney effective Aug 31. County Attorney Bill Reinter will hire a full-time assistant Ronald J Prichard, 41, from the Dallas area — Sept I.
His Boarnet’s) private practice will not allow him to go to a full-time position,” Renner explained. “It would mean a loss of income for him to accept my full-time assistant position.”
Reimer said he had to wait for the new budget to hire a full-time person, and the new assistant has to sale his house and move here “Ron i Prichard) has been an assistant prosecutor in Cameron County and assistant criminal attorney in Wood County," Reimer said
Loeffler raises campaign funds
AUSTIN AP) A committee sounding out Republican U S Rep Tom Uieffler’s chances in a 1986 race fur governor has raised $1.14 million over .» six week period, according to a report filed with the secretary of state suffice
Democratic Gov. Mark White, w ho is expected to seek re-election, had not filed his officeholder report for Jan. l-June 30 by the close of business Monday.
Former U S Rep. Kent Hance, a Democrat-turned-Republican who is a possible GDP gubernatorial candidate, did not have to file because his committee is a general committee, not for a specific office, said a spokesman for the Hance Committee
Hance committee sources said, however, ll million had been raised Richard McBride, director of the Tom Daffier for Governor Committee, said the SI. 14 million is the most ever raised by a non-incumbent in a similar reporting period.
“The exploratory committee concentrated fund-raising activities mainly in the 21st Congressional District,” McBride said. “Now we can turn our attention to the rest of the state.”
Ixieffler’s contribution total includes $335,000 in loans from six individuals and money transfers from Loeffler's congressional campaign committee, according to his report.
McBride cited three fund-raising
efforts by comparison to show how w ell I .oefHer had done
He said six-week reports filed by 1984 U S. Senate candidates Uoyd Dogged, Phil Graiiuil and Kent Hance as of June 30, 1983, showed Dogged had raised $347,625, Gratton $337,327 and Hance $254,985
“This certainly answers any questions regarding the availability of funding for a Tom Ixieffler candidacy," McBride said
“This report clearly shows the intense support Congressman loftier has among the people of his congressional district and that they are ready to stiare his exceptional leadership abilities with all of Texas.”

Comal County Central Appraisal District Monday night agreed to look next month at a proposed budget that is $42,000 less than the first document they were given.
Chief Appraiser Glenn Brucks had originally suggested a budget of $609,600, compared to last year’s budget of $512,850.
But after the board received criticism from several of the district’s entities, it told Brucks to reappraise his office’s needs.
Brucks returned Monday with a proposed reduction of $3,600, which reflected the addition of only two employees rather than three.
But Director S.D. David Jr. said he
had done some calculations on his own and had cut the budget by $45,000.
“I may be called a hatchet man tonight, but my feeling is that right at this time we can’t afford two new employees,” David said. “I feel we can afford one new receptionist.”
David suggested a total of about $337,000 for salaries, which would include $22,000 over last year’s salary account of $315,150. The increase would contain $12,000 for a new employee and $10,000 for raises.
Board Chairman Charles Lewis agreed with David’s calculations, but altered them slightly, showing $15,000 for a new employee, rather
than $12,000. Lewis proposed the same $10,000 for Brucks to dole out in raises to current employees.
“In my opinion, Glenn absolutely needs a receptionist or executive secretary in this office,” Lewis said. “Too many letters are going unanswered. Too many things are not dug up and found for the board “We need a real capable executive secretary and $15,000 of that would hire one person, wit!) a roughly-3 percent raise (for other employees) if warranted.”
Most of the board agreed with Lewis’ figures and asked him to present them formally at the August meeting. The budget must be ap
proved by Sept. 15.
Also Monday, the board talked again about office space for the Appraisal District — this time looking at space in the Comal County annex.
Director Arnold Moos reported that Comal County Commissioners have offered about 4,592 square feet of space in the annex at a price of 75 cents per square foot. That translates to $3,444 per month.
The $41,328 per year price includes janitorial service, utilities, and phone equipment, Moos said.
Directors said they would like to
