mann agreed, saying the problem would not go away if the city decided to do nothing.
“I think we need to do this once and do it right, for a
long-term solution,” she said. “We have building taking place on the extreme ends of Walnut and the traffic on this street will only increase with time.”

Council will make final decision on street
areas of Walnut,” he told planning commissioners.
Without a fifth lane to incorporate, City Engineer Mike Short said the widening could be accomplished within the existing 4-feet wide right of way, although existing curbs and utilities will have to be moved.
At least one intersection, San Antonio Street at Walnut, will require additional land purchase, if city council decides to accept the study’s recommendation for five lanes.
Resident Alma Carader, who just moved into her home at 140 S. Walnut Ave. behind the pawn shop at the San Antonio Street intersection, was dismayed to hear of plans she is sure will have
a drastic impact on her home.
Although not directly on the intersection, Carader’s property falls within the area needed for turning lane storage capacity.
"I don’t think there needs to be more lanes,” she said. “The traffic is not really that bad. Plus, if they decide to widen this road, it will destroy the integrity and old feel of this residential neighborhood. Kids ride their bikes along the streets that feed into Walnut.”
Despite (Paraders claims of free-flowing traffic, Planning Commission members all expressed a desire to take action on the long-debated problem while acknowledging their decision would not be popular with area residents.
“Nobody is going to be very happy with us, but it's time to do something to fix it,” said Cheryl Casteel.

Killer executed in death of prostitute
IIUNTSVILLE (AP) — Condemned killer Alexander Martinez was executed Tuesday for the robbery and fatal stabbing of a prostitute at a Houston house four years ago.
In a brief statement, he thanked his family and friends and expressed his love for them.
“And thanks for the friends at the Polunsky Unit that helped me get through this that didn’t agree with my
decision and still gave me their friendship,’’ he said.
Martinez, who would have turned 29 next week, ordered no appeals filed that could stop his punishment.
As the drugs began flowing, he gasped, coughed and let out a long wheeze. Eight minutes later, he was pronounced dead.

Complex would allow for sports other than soccer
grandparents and other family members. That audience provides a great marketing opportunity for local businesses.”
While the proposed changes would go a long way to improving conditions for New Braunfels soccer players, they do not provide a solution to the need for more fields. Eventually, Laird said she
would like to see tournament Fields constructed as part of a future citywide sports complex.
Parks Advisory Board members have been taking investigative trips to other Texas cities as part of efforts to generate support for some type of tournament venue in New Braunfels.
Once their research is complete, likely within the next few months, they will present their findings to city council with information on what could be paid for with hotel/motel occupancy tax money.
