Zoeller Funeral Home Read the news online! in the attic, in the walls and under the house, but Gomez found little to no insulation in the house. The insulation that was originally installed had shrunk in the attic, allowing cool air from the fans and air conditioning units to escape through the ceiling. “Nothing’s keeping it (the air) inside,” Gomez said. He also found that Olvera’s home needed weather stripping on the doors and windows. Olvera’s home was recommended for free insulation based on its size and Olvera’s income level. Ibm and Cathy Talcott of Cell-U-Insul said they wanted to give something back to the community, but needed help choosing the best candidates. The company will install insulation-in 12 more homes throughout the vear, with the help of NBU. The program can continue beyond that with local support for materials. ‘We’d love to see it happen again if it can,” Cathy Talcott said. Olvera said she is still looking into weather stripping and insulation for the walls and under the house. The attic insulation should save her about 20 percent per year on her electric bill, which Olvera will need since she will be taken off of the bill assistance program over the next few months. She will also receive education on how to save money on her electric bill. The goal of the program is to help low-income NBU customers to become self-sufficient after they receive assistance. “It’s really a super cool deal," Olvera said. Val Gomez checks the progress of insulation installation, as 11-year-old Amber Olvera waits for the New Braunfels Utilities crew to finish using her room. The hoses and electric cord to go up into the attic came through the window in her room and up through an opening in the ceiling. on the road. This past school year, the Comal Independent School District opened a new elementary school at Hoffman Lane and FM 306. Kennady said it is time to consider making changes. “We need to do something to protect the people on this road. We have the school and the subdivisions out there now. Its not the same as it was even a year ago,” she said. “We do have speeders through there. I got a call yesterday from someone who said he was driving behind one of those huge semis, and it was going 55 mph. He couldn’t believe the speed. And that road is like a roller coaster out there.” Kennady said Hoffman Lane has caused more calls to her office than any other issue. “I’ve gotten lots of feedback from people who live in that area. They’re in full support of it. I think we’re going to be okay with it,” Kennady said. Barring any new information surfacing at the public hearing, Kennady said she would move to reduce the speed limit and make the entire length of Hoffman Lane a “no passing” zone. County Judge Danny Scheel said he was concerned that the majority of users of the road would disobey the new speed limit. “I don’t want to put something in there that doesn’t seem reasonable that no one’s going to be willing to follow,” Scheel said. On Schoenthal Road, which runs from FM 1863 to FM 3009, Scheel said the county is considering the opposite scenario — raising its 45-mph speed Unlit. ‘This is the other side of the deal. I don’t want to put something in there that nobody’s going to follow. But I’m leaving it up to them,” Scheel said. * be closed ^ July 4fh in observance ,, ^ of Independence Day.
