Warbler ruling creates confusion for some
By CRAM HAMMITT
More questions than answers seem to already be forming as the U.S. Fish tnd Wildlife Service ponders designating much of HUI Country, including areas in Comal County, aa critical habitat for endangered species*
The proposal, if adopted, would ftirther protect die golden-cheeked warbler, a bird that Mats in the and oak forests of the Hill Country and uses bark from older cedar trees to build hi neats. The bird wu placed on the list in 1988. Fish and Wildlifb Mid the habitat covers around 800,000 acres in 33 Texas counties, much of that critical habitat.
The controversy centers on just who will he affbctad and how. Much of Comal County is covered with oedan and oaks, and moat of the oounty Is rural, with only two incorporated cities.
Ranching and firming ate tradmonel features of the oounty and developments ate rapidly growing, especially in the western portions.
“Nobody really knows what effect titia will have until somebody interprets tile rule,’’ said Richard Btindea of the Comal County Agriculture-Stabiliation and Conservation Service. Btindea arid the ^oncy hee never defined the word “potential" u it applies to potential which he said
Wildlife said persons would have to apply for a permit which currently t .ikes about one year. That process could lengthen if more persons sppiy, or if a study is required to determine if wildlife would indeed be threatened.

Congressman Lamar $mith claims a US. Court of Appeals in March ruled in tire Sweat Home case rn* the definition of "harm" in the Endangered Species Aet suggests that "clearing alone" does not supply evidence of death or injury, or involve the term "take" as applied to banning the endangered spades.
“What is needed here is to strike a balance between property rights and the environment," said Smith in a released statement.
Local lenders are also watching to see what changes the proposal could have, either on property values or lending practice*.
