“We’ll get a lot of support locally and nationally, but it has to start locally,” Lamon said.
New Braunfels advertising firm owner C. Herb Skoog will serve as executive director of The Hummel Museum, handling public relations activities and development and construction of the museum. The Chamber will provide clerical and other office services.
“The Nauers decided they wanted to find a place in the United States to put * these works, and it’s my understanding that they looked at places like Disney-world." Skoog said. “The decision was then made that they would like to have it in a place where it would be a special attraction unto itself.”
Sicglinde Smith of Fort Worth, a representative of Ars Edition Inc. in the
United States, recommended the Nauers look at New Braunfels. As a young child. Smith was a model for some Hummel drawings.
The entire collection won’t be displayed at one time, Skoog said. Rotation of
the works will feature seasonal, holiday and topical displays, he said. Traveling displays of rare figurines, borrowed from collectors across the world, also will be displayed. A gift shop will be included.
Preliminary plans also include museum tours, a speakers bureau, art classes, group European lours and general cultural events.
Officers elected at the board of directors’ recent organizational meeting were: David Lamon. president; Jacques Naucr, first vice president; Ken Armkc, second vice president; Jancllc Berger, secretary; and Tom Pur durn. treasurer.

“We felt that these groups really deserve recognition for their outstanding service in assisting the sheriffs department," Bremer said
The drowning last Sunday involved divers searching for the victim’s body that night and finally recovering it Monday. The volunteers provided communications, traffic control as well as food and drinks for divers when they came up to rest.

“They still don’t know what happened — what caused it to take on water or why the bilge pumps weren’t working,” Smith said. “When I look back, it could have been a disaster if that boat had turned over sideways."
Smith, his grandchildren and the other crew members jumped overboard about a half hour after water was first noticed in the stem area and awaited help as the vessel sank into the Gulf of Mexico.
"My grandchildren are ready to go again. They followed me right into the water and didn’t even hesitate,” Smith said.
“When the boat started to sink, I was thinking, ‘Is this really happening? Big boats like this aren’t supposed to sink. Helicopters are pulling people out of the water. This is movie stuff,’ "hesaid.
There were no reported injuries, but
Roberts said several of the fishing enthusiasts suffered stress-related chest pains.
“They were in the water about three to five minutes,” Roberts said. "Most of them were picked up by the motor vessels, Dolphin and Barracuda. Several individuals were picked out of the water by a Coast Guard 41-footer and two were hoisted by Coast Guard helicopter."
The Coast Guard is continuing an investigation into why the vessel sank, Roberts said.
