DAVID INGRAM Herald-Zeitung By David Saleh Rauf The Herald-Zeitung In response to what some in the Oak Run subdivision are labeling autocratic-style leadership by the man who developed the subdivision and heads the local home owners association, a protest movement has manifested against plans to tear down a IO foot-wide sidewalk used predominantly by schoolchildren. However, as community mem bers in the subdivision will tell you, its not just any old sidewalk that Ed Badouh, developer of Oak Run and according to the community newsletter the self-proclaimed “dictator” of the HOA, has plans to uproot. It is the only path — commonly referred to as the "sidewalk through the ditch” — that connects the subdivision of 500 families to a fellowship church and the OakRun 6th Grade Center, which is set to expand into a full blown middle school in the coming years; it’s a path that children use to ride their bike across, community members use as a means for walking exercise and parents use to shave time from their morning bustle by dropping their See PATH, Page 7A RIGHT: Stryker Saunders of PristineTexas Rivers drags a large, deflated, water trampoline out of the Comal River during one of the company's four day a week river cleanups.

Nathan Pence, River Activities manager, presented the campaign to the city council last Monday. “Utter was something the council and River Activities Committee identified as a serious problem,” he said. “We need to step up our preservation and stewardship of our natural resources in New Braunfels and one way to do that is with the anti-litter campaign." Pence said information on where and how to stash the trash is included on table tents located in hotels and restaurants and direct mail inserted into New Braunfels Utilities bills to residents, Also, all city staff e-mail’s will contain the logo and stencils will be supplied to outfitters to go on rental tubes. Decals, posters, brochures and a Web page also have been created to get the word out. “This is an ongoing campaign to encourage residents and visitors to recycle and dispose of litter properly,” Pence said. District 4 Councilman Pat Wiggins expressed his thanks to Pence for the new campaign. “I can’t wait to see it all in action,” he said.
