New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 26, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Fiber optics Mf RAIO ZE'TUNG Gerald Harrison of Five Points Construction operates a trench digger along the Missouri Kansas tracks near North Seguin and Meusebach streets for a fiber optics cable. The cable will run between New Braunfels, San Antonio and Dallas and is being installed by the railroadSearch intensifies for fugitive insects SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) State inspectors fanned out with airplanes and earth-moving equipment, planning to examine more than 2,000 commercial hives in search of African ‘ killer bees” that apparently swarmed from a mammoth nest. The search for the bees widened Thursday after scientists determined that the first known U.S. colony of the bees had been in a Southern California oilfield for at least a year and probably had two queens. “We’ll have to intensify the search and work our way out” from the discovery site at Ixist Hills, about 150 miles north of Ia>s Angeles, said state Agriculture Director Clare Berry hill. The bees, blamed for the deaths of animals and people in other countries, were discovered in June by an oilfield worker who tried to seal the hole with asphalt after the bees swarmed from the ground and attacked a rabbit. Authorities are scouring a 400-square-mile area surrounding the site and have ordered commercial or hobbyist beekeepers not to move any of the more than 2,000 hives in the area. They will take 50 sample bees from each colony to see if any are African. The African honeybees are popularly called “killer bees" because they are more aggressive and prone to sting than the average bee, although they are almost identical in appearance. They are descended from 26 African swarms that escaped in Brazil in the 1950s, and their spread north has inspired several Hollywood horror movies. Scientists say the bee's sting is no more toxic than that of domestic bees, but because they are more excitable, a slight disturbance can cause an entire swarm to chase and sting any people or animals within 300 feet. Norman Gary, an entomologist from the University of California at Davis, dug Thursday into the burrow and found a nest of 20 honeycombs 54 feet long, a foot high and a foot wide. The nest was so large it probably had been there a year or longer, Gary said. He also found a queen cell from which a reproductive queen had emerged recently. Experts theorize that the newly latched queen left with a swarm of bees a few weeks before the burrow was discovered and that the rest of the swarm fled after the worker tried to cover the burrow “We’re pretty well convinced that we have two queens and their colonies out there and possibly more," Berryhill said late Thursday. Searchers are using airplanes and earth-moving equipment to look for infestations. Only 50 bees, none of them queens, were found in the burrow, which was doused with pesticide June 26 An African colony would have 5,000 to 10,000 bees. There are about 600,000 commercial hives in California, worth up to $100 each Farmers in the agriculture-rich valley rely on bees to pollinate crops By SARAH DUKE Staff Writer SHERTZ — The Schertz-Cibolo-Umversal City Independent School District announced Thursday that improvements are nearing completion for each campus within the district. For the past few months parents and other people have been volunteering their time and energy to liven up the schools, said Malford Brehm, Jr., president of the school board. Volunteers, including parents, teachers and students, have painted the concession stand and rest rooms at the Samuel Clemens High School in Schertz and similar work has been done on each of the other five campuses.

Son Antonio 625-6903 Developer must finish roads Developer Jerry’ Haag has until Wednesday to complete the roads in Chaparral subdivision. County commissioners agreed Thursday to call the $35,000 letter of credit to complete the roads, pending substantial completion of the roads by the deadline. The letter of credit expires Aug. 3. This action followed a report from County Engineer Clark “Mac” McCoy that said the roads were not paved yet. though base material was spread. "They are scheduled for surfacing tomorrow Friday)," McCoy said. “But we are still in an lith hour configuration. I think we should be authorized to proceed with collection (on the letter of credit) next Wednesday if they are not substancially completed.” The roads have taken more than three years of extensions to complete with no redeemable letter of credit on the construction until last month. For the past year only a $15,000 certificate of deposit covered the construction. Before that the county had no way to get the money from Haag to build the roads if he re nigged. The letter of credit was not written like a surety bond, previous commissioners court meeting brought out. Haag told commissioners in his last request for extension that he could have the roads finished in three days. The commissioners decided to give him only a 30-day extension after they received the $35,000 redeemable letter of credit. In other business, commissioners granted Arrowhead Subdivision Unit 3 a variance without the county engineer’s recommendation. The road will be 50 feet rather than 60 feet wide. Commissioner Bill George, whose precinct the subdivision is in, recommended the variance because the road would be an extension of a well-built private road with a 50-foot right-of-way. The paving would be the usual width. "I think we have already set a precedent on this i by allowing the 50-foot right-of-way on the private road),” George said. As long as this stays only in this subdivision, George felt the county could do it. “I think we need to give no variances when it does affect another land owner,” George said. “And I agree with the developer, in this area the wider the road, the more it takes away from the building site.” As is the past, commissioners voted with the commissioner whose precinct was involved without comment, allowing the variance. In other business, commissioners signed the contract with the U.S. marshal to house federal prisoners in the new jail for $35 per day per inmate. “This is a little better than a lot of counties receive.' County Auditor Bate Bond said Sheriff Walter Fellers'said he asked the U.S. marshal who visited recently to wait IO days after signing the contract to send prisoners. Commissioners changed a few words to clarify which government was agreeing to do winch services, but overall the contract was accepted. “Until we have exercised all the functions of the jail, I don’t want to have then yet," Fellers said In the agreement, the federal government will pay for all hospitalization of its inmates, but the county will provide routine medical and dental care, and transportation and .security at the hospital. The federal government will pay $7.50 an hour for the .security which reserve deputies have agreed to performVolunteers at work Campus improvements nearly complete fence around tennis courts at the junior high school, relocate the school’s track facilities and buy rmni-blinds for classroom windows The current track facilities at Corbett are located across Curtis Avenue from the school on the land that was sold. “Now our kids won t have to cross the street to practice track,” said Robert Trampota. Corbett's principal. “This will certainly be as good or better than what we have now.” he added. Trampota said yard workers have already begun improving the outward appearance of the school by planting flowers and keeping the yard in nice shape Herbert Rehmann, the district’s director of auxiliary services, said. "The biggest complaints we have always received from parents at Corbett has been the appearance of the building " The board also voted to advertise for bids to repair roofs at Wiederstein Elementary School, Hose Garden Elementary School and Corbett In other business, the board voted to accept prekindergarten transfer students from Marion The students will attend Wiederstein. Superintendent Byron P Steele said the school has sufficient room for the students The request to accept the students, he said. is a chance to provide a service t>> Marion at little cost to the school Tilt* board voted to change the school calendar given students a holiday April 21 to celebrate the Texas Sequicentermiai said. “This is the first time there have been any improvements on their schools in a terribly long time. They just keep coming back to see how the improvements are coming. “Several of them even got to pick the colors they wanted their rooms to be,” he added. The board expects all repairs to be completed by the beginning of the new school year. Board members made plans for even more improvements when they voted to sell two parcels of land near Ray D. Corbett Junior High School in Schertz and use the money from the sales to spruce up the Corbett campus. Money from the land sales and the sale of a fence on the land totaled more than $10,000 The board decided to build a new HughesTl Interfst IBM Intl Harv Int Paper JohnsJn K mart KrogerCo CTV Corp Litton Ind LoneSta Ind Lowes MCorp MayDSt s Medtronic Mobil Monsanto Motorola NabtscoBrd NYNEX OwensIU PacifTel Penney JC Phelps Dod Philippi s Polaroid ProctGamb Pubs NwMx IO A KepBankCp Sabine Safeway SFeSouPac SearsKoeb Singer Co Southern Co Southland SwstBell Sperry Cp SldOilOh Sun Comp Tandy Tenneco Texaco Inc TexAmBnch TexComBn TexEaitn Texas Inst TexasOGas Tex Util Textron Tylers Un Carbide HS US 1314 94 51S 474 35 424 84 80S 26S 26 23S 50S 36S 31S 52 36S 834 844 494 74S 50 23S 134 32 584 274 444 324 154 324 334 364 384 214 384 804 524 484 484 314 424 37 S 324 334 304 1064 174 as 574 16 514 134 144 1 4 114 1304 131 94 94 514 514 474 474 344 344 42 424 84 84 804 804 264 264 254 26 234 234 504 504 364 364 314 314 514 514 364 364 834 834 84 84 494 494 734 74 rn - 494 234 234 13 134 314 314 58 58 264 274 444 444 324 324 154 154 32 324 324 324 364 364 38 384 204 21 374 374 SO 804 52 52 474 484 484 484 304 31 414 424 374 374 32 32 334 334 304 304 1054 1054 17 174 284 284 564 574 16 16 51 514 UnPacCp 52 514 52 US Steel 294 294 294 USW'est 771« 76 4 76 4 UniTel 22 214 214 Unocal 304 304 304 WalMart 50 494 50 WestghEl 354 35 35 Xerox Cp 53 52 4 524 ZemthE 204 204 204 Market declines slightly NEW YORK i AP I — The stock market declined slightly today, still stuck in the narr w range in which it has traded a1! week The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials dropped 157 to 1.352 04 in the first hour on Wall Street lasers held a o-4 lead over gainers among New York Stock Excising enlisted issues H»ralcft-Zfitun$ (USPS 377 880 lf you have riot received your paper by 5 30 p rn Tuesday through Friday or by 7 30 ii re Sunday, call 625 9144 or 658 1900 t v 7 p rn and 11 a rn respectively Published Sunday morning and Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and Friday afternoon by New Braunfels Herald Publishing Co, 186 S Castell Ave New Braunfels TX 78131 Second a> postage paid at New Braunfels Herald Publishing Co 186 S ( astel!
