Skoog: People sharing stones about Horen
mover for incorporation,” Swearingen said. “What we envisioned was we would like to keep Startzville as close to what it is as we can.”
“Well, why do this, then?” resident Tony Carroll called from the middle of the room.
“I talked with someone in the New Braunfels planning office the other day," Swearingen said. “They have nonannexation agreements on FM 306 that expire in 2007. She said that after they expire, ‘We’re going after the high-dollar subdivisions as fast as we can get them.’ That’s her words, not mine. This is not a scare tactic. The whole idea is, if we’re going to get taxed by someone else, let’s incorporate ourselves and keep our money close to home.”
John Welch, an appraiser who advises the meeting organizers, disputed Swearingen’s characterization.
“The fact is, the city limits of New Braunfels are at the same place they were on PM 306 in 1984 — 21 years ago. They’re in the same place on PM 2722 they were 21 years ago. The

DAVID INGRAM Herald-Zeitung
William Wooley answers questions from the citizens who live in Startzville concerning the possibility of incorporating at a meeting at the Startz CafeTuesday.
City of New Braunfels can’t just sneak up on us. They can’t just leap frog down PM 306. Its not possible. They have to have a posted three-year plan. It would still take years to get here."
Wooley said that instead of looking to New Braunfels, maybe Startzville should consider Bul Verdes aspirations.
“Everyone tells us they’re not interested in us. I low do we know?” Wooley asked, adding that their Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction in the Toms Creek area was only about five miles away.
Wooley talked about his
vision of what a city of Startzville would be like.
“We want this to be a Hill County town,” Wooley said. "We’re not asking for a city that’s spread all around the lake. Towns don’t have big government. They have a little town office and a small road department with five guys working in a tin shed down the road.”
Welch scoffed at the vision.
“I’m not an expert on road maintenance,” he said. “But I see the county crews out there. I see dump trucks and pavers and large crews. I fail to see how three guys working

in a shed can accomplish what the county does.”
Carroll asked why there hadn’t been more notice and more public input into the process before now. Why did Wooley seek ii special election in September, he asked.
“What was the rush? Why not November? Why not 2006? Wily did we have to do this so quickly?” Carroll asked.
“We just selected the next available date," Swearingen replied. “There was no particular magic. Obviously, the gentleman is not in favor of this. I would encourage you to vote.”
Carroll assured him that he would.
Carleton McComb of Cranes Mill told the audience he had spent 13 years as mayor and councilman of Pearland and went through the incorporation process there.
“I understand what everyone is talking about, I agree with your concerns and, of course, I'm against it,” McComb said. “I moved up here because we have a fantastic county government that gives us better services than tile City of Pearland gave its citizens. We couldn’t get there because we didn’t have the funds. I say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it."

NASA scanning for problems after shuttle returns to space
By Marcia Dunn
AP Aerospace Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL, Ha. — America’s manned space program roared back to life Tuesday with the launch ol Discovery, and engineers immediately began analyzing video of debris falling from tile shuttle. hoping to rule out a problem like the one that doomed the last flight 2 112 years ago.
National pride and the future of space exploration itself hung in the balance as Discovery and its crew of seven rose from die launch pad at 10:39 a.m. into a hazy blue sky and headed out over the ocean in the most scrutinized launch in NASA history and the first shuttle Hight since the C xiluni-bia disaster.
NASA Administrator Michael Griffin urged everyone “to take note of what you saw here today: tin1 power and the majesty of the launch, of course, hut also the competence and the professionalism, tile sheer gall, the pluckiness, the grittiness of this team that pulled this program out of the depths of despair 2 I / 2 years ago and made it fly.”
Nevertheless, Griffin and other NASA officials said they will not celebrate until Discovery conies home safely. Columbia, after all, seemed to be home free until it fell to pieces oil its return to Earth.
Myron Horen’s memorial service will be conducted Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Ascension Lutheran Church in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
Floren, a longtime headliner during Wurstfest, died Saturday after a lengthy battle with cancer.
I Voice your.. , k opinion#
TVvo chase planes and more than 1(M) cameras documented Discovery’s ascent from every possible angle to capture any sign of flying debris, and hours after the shuttle had settled into orbit, NASA officials said cUi object that may have been a I 1/2-inch piece of thermal tile appeared to break off from the Discovery’s belly during liftoff. It came off from around a particularly vulnerable spot, near the doors to the compartment containing the nose landing gear.
Also, a large object — perhaps a piece of foam insulation — seemed to fly off from the giant external fuel tank but did not hit the shuttle itself, NASA Hight operations manager John Shannon said.
“The big question is, what is that?” Shannon said.
I Ie said it is too early to say whether the two incidents pose any danger to tile shuttle. Among other things, it is not yet known how deep the gouge in the tile is.
Shannon said the cameras have provided the space agency with more detailed images than it has ever seen before, and it not clear whether the debris represents anything out of the ordinary. Also, the tiles on NASA’s shuttle fleet have sustained thousands of dings over the years.
