“I would like to see our city well represented in assisting the Southwest Voter Registration accomplish its goal,” Chapa said.
The tour will include four Texas cities — Houston, Dallas, Mercedes and El Paso — and Chicago. Music will be provided by Gary Hobbs and the Hot Sauce Band, Roberto Pulido Y Los Classicos, Ram Herrera and the Outlaws, Emilio Navaira, Joe Lopez, and Mazz.

Robert “Brad ’’ Wilson is back home in New Braunfels after being airlifted to Medical Center hospital in San Antonio following a wreck on the Interstate 35 frontage road June 7.
“I had lacerations on my arm and a punctured lung,** Wilson said. “The lung had pretty much healed up when I got out of the hospital on Saturday.”
Wilson said that he still feels some soreness in his shoulder and is looking forward to getting back into the swing of summer.
Wilson works at Schlittcrbahn Water Park selling “Schlitter-cones’’ and other concessions. He graduated from New Braunfels High School this year and plans to attend the University of Texas at Austin in the fall.
“I’ve already got my apartment in Austin and am looking forward to it,*’ Wilson said. “I don’t know what to rrutfor in yet. I’ll just take basics for now."
Wilson’s 1978 Monza was involved in a collision with a pickup truck pulling a travel trailer as he was trying to enter northbound Interstate 35 from the access road.
“I think Texas is the only state that still has two-way access roads," he said.
Plans have been discussed by highway department officials to change the two-way frontage roads to decrease the chance of accidents.
Southbound vehicles arc supposed to yield to vehicles entering the freeway at a northbound ramp. The police accident report lists two witnesses that say they saw the truck and trailer fail to yield at the yield sign.
“I was concious but it was kiad of unreal, slow moving," he said.
A fire department employee at the accident scene wondered aloud how many more accidents there would have to he on these two-way access roads before the state would do something to change them.
