New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 13, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A n Herald-Zeftunq g Friday, June 13.1997 From Page 1 the state troopers to a greater extent than we do now in order to get increased enforcement on 281," Dawson said. John Kelly, district engineer for TxDOTs San Antonio district, said Thursday's meeting was one of 25 being held throughout die amie. “In the past year we've had a 17 percent increase in traffic deaths on highways in Texas, And that’s the reason we're having this meeting," Kelly said. Kelly said TxDOT welcomed all inpm front the public. “We will not make final decisions (regarding speed limit changes) tonight," Kelly said. “We will not make decisions based on the quantity of information we receive, but on an objective review of the information we receive. Speed limits can not replace the use of good judgment of drivers." Bob Barton of Bulverde stressed the need for immediate action on the 281 problem. “TxDOT needs to reduce the speed limits on 281 — not in six months or not in a year after they’ve done more studies, but now," Barton said. “TxDOT should listen to the people before more people die ” Wimberley search ends in Blanco River Obituary By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer CIS© mulls middle school sex ed By POiSC DZIUK Staff Writer Comal Independent School District is considering offering at the middle school level the same sex education class offered currently at the district’s two high schools. CISD has a Health Education Advisory Committee made up of 12 parents, two community members (including a minister) and six educators. A parent representative told CISD boud Wednesday night, during a report item, that the committee unanimously supports the high school level human sexuality courae, which stresses abstinence. “We were pleased, and that’s what we were in agreement on what we want taught," said parent Donna Knobel. Kuebel said the committee recently looked at the middle school level. She said after discussions, the committee recommended the district implement the same program at the middle school level. “Our eyes were opened about what was actually going on, and agreed abstinence is what we want encouraged," she said. Parents could have concerns about what would be taught, Kuebel commented. However, she said, discussing the curriculum content relieved parents’ anxieties at the high school level. She said she realized the delicacy of the subject but expected parents of middle school children to be open to the idea when they heard what it entailed. “This is their children, and this is a real touchy issue," Kuebel said. “But, it's real hard to go against abstinence.” Major said sex education programs would not be implemented at the middle school yet, but the district would look into the possibility. He said the board needed to take an active part in determining how the curriculum is presented and the philosophy guiding it before teaching began. The search for two people last seen during Sunday’s downpour came to a tragic end Thursday when their bodies were found trapped in their vehicle in foe swollen Blanco River. Jeff Butler, 22, of Wimberley, and Nicole Harrington, 19, of San Marcos, were last seen leaving a residence in Wimberley at about 3 a.m. Monday. According to the Hays County SherifTs Department, the resident said this was (hiring foe time flood waters on the rain-swollen Blanco River were at their crest, reaching approximately 6 feet over foe roadway. Captain Billy Bloom said the couple apparently went to visit friends, and left in a Jeep Comanche pickup early Monday morning. An extensive search by foe Hays County Sheriffs Department, Wimberley Volunteer Fire Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Wimberley EMS and volunteers was launched. Bloom said searchers were walking along the Blanco River, when the vehicle was spotted. “We had divers in the area, but they weren’t in the water yet because the water was too dangerous," Bloom said. “One of the divers found the truck.’’ Bloom said foe truck was IOO to 200 yards from the road the couple was reported to have taken. He said at this point foe department wasn’t speculating on what happened. However, he said it looked like foe truck was washed away be high water. “It appears what happened was they entered a low water crossing that was deeper than they thought," he said. Hays County Justice of the Peace James A. Stowe Jr. pronounced both individuals dead at 12:29 p.m. Thursday, and ordered an autopsy, Bloom said. Roma Henk Schwab Roma Henk Schwab of New Braunfels died Wednesday, June 11, 1997, at her residence at foe age of 82. Funeral mass will be Saturday, June 14, 1997, at IO am at Sts.
