SAFE also requested that residents be allowed to vote on annexation by the city of the cement plant property to allow enforcement of city ordinances and on an ordinance banning purchase and use inside the city limits of cement manufactured using toxic fuels. 4
The city reached agreement with Lafarge in 1988 not to annex the cement plant for seven years if plant officials did not oppose annexation at that time, Goodbread said, so the annexation proposal likely won’t go on the ballot.
“The city certainly does not want to deviate from what has been agreed upon,” Goodbread said. “I believe a deal’sa deal.”
Kraft said the council needs to send the message to all industries and businesses that the council keeps its word.
“We promised them that (not to annex until 1995), and they said they’d come cm board when we’re ready. So I feel like proposal No. 2 we can cover,” she said.
The third proposal — banning cement manufactured using toxic fuels — would be a choice by the city and consumers that wouldn’t need enforcement by ordinance. Moore said.
Pennington said some experts consider such cement a possible longterm health risk and substandard as a building material, but Edmont responded that no scientific evidence says cement containing byproducts of burned hazardous waste is either dangerous or substandard.
SAFE was formed in 1990 to fight Lafarge’s hazardous waste permit

Survivors include a sister, Dorothy Wiru Graham of Oconto Palls, Wise.; and two brothers, Russell Win/ and
applications filed with the Texas Water Commission and the Texas Air Control Board. Lafarge plans to accept shipments of hazardous waste for payment and bum the waste in an industrial incinerator.
SAFE filed a petition with the Texas Water Commission in February asking for regulation changes that would include a ban on hazardous waste facilities within five miles of a public school or park. The cement plant is within five miles of several local schools.
The City Council last week unanimously approved an August referendum on extending the hours alcohol is sold here after accepting a petition presented by Barry Jaroszcwski, owner of Barry’s Under Pass Saloon. During that council meeting, Wallace asked that some SAFE issues also be added to the ballot, and the mayo! then scheduled the workshop last night.
Goodbread also asked the city attorney about the possibility of delaying the scheduled Aug. IO election until November to increase voter turnout and save taxpayers the $4,000 expense, but Moore said the city is required by the petition to call the election as soon as possible.
In other business, the council heard Wayman and Nancy Krueger ask about the possibility of including an item on the ballot concerning the resolution recently passed by the City Council that supports the local airport receiving “reliever status” for San Antonio from the Federal Aviation Administration. But council resolutions, as formal statements of opinion, can’t be included in referendums like ordinances, the city attorney said. The Kruegers oppose any changes at the airport, located near their home.

The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that deer were the cause of several Comal County auto accidents this weekend.
At I a.m. Saturday, a 1980 Toyota four-wheel drive truck skidded off Farm-to-Market Road 2673 and overturned, according to DPS officials. The driver, Mark Cogbum of Canyon Lake, 30, reacted to an oncoming vehicle that had swerved into his lane to miss a deer, officials said. His vehicle skidded through a fence and hit a utility pole and support wire, causing $5(X) worth of damage, officials said.
Jeep found in river
A 1986 Jeep Pioneer was found submerged in the Guadalupe River near Guada-Coma Estates about 9 a.m. Sunday, according to New Braunfels Police officials. The jeep was stolen from a resident of the 300 block of Bridge Street sometime Saturday night, police said.
“It was apparent that someone had pushed or driven the vehicle through the park, over the curb, and into the river,” a police spokesperson said.
Damage to the jeep included a smashed front left fender, blown tire, cracked windshield and missing grille.
The truck was totaled but the driver received only minor injuries. There were no citations issued.
At 4 p.m,. Sunday, Suzanne Pape of New Braunfels, 18, was southbound on School thai Road near Garden Ridge in a 1990 two-door Geo when she swerved to miss a deer. The vehicle left I IO feet of skid marks as the brakes locked, according to DPS officials. The car spun out of control and slid off the roadway into an oak tree, officials said. Both driver and passenger were wearing seat belts with shoulder straps. There were only minor injuries and no citations issued.

New Braunfels resident Jo Allison recently received an unusual distinction. Allison is in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, distinguished because she owns more than 120 chimney sweep figurines.
“I guess I was selected because I have so many,” Allison said. “There’s a story behind them all, each one.” Allison began her collection in 1969 while she and her husband were living in Germany. She said, “I don’t no why I started doing it. The rest is history I guess.”
Allison said she has purchased a few and been given the rest.
“The chimney sweep is supposed to bring luck if you shake his hand and get soot on your hand,” Allison explained.
Allison said she has seen the figurines at weddings, “hanging from horseshoes” and “standing in receiving lines so you can shake his hand as you go by.”
Allison’s chimney sweeps come in a variety of styles and poses and are fashioned from “wax, pine cones, prunes, wood, you name it,” she said.
Some are nutcrackers.
Several of Allison’s chimney sweeps are seated atop pig figurines. “Oh, a long time ago they were paid with pigs, didn’t you know ?” she asked.
Allison said there have been chimney sweeps for a “long, long time. They have a history.”
Allison picked up a small cloth chimney sweep at that point and said, “Someone made me this one and over here I have one someone....”
In Allison’s, each sweep in her collection brushes up a personal memory.
