In its second year, Hermes said, lacing her remarks with humor and calling frequently on Downtown Association President Mob Schima to repeat her theme—“We create our own business environment” — the SBO sponsored the “Small Business Week” recognition of local fums and awarded the first “Small Businessperson of the' Year” award, which went to Mary Jane Nalley.
The SBC, Hermes said, is now in its third year and has two primary purposes: to aid already existing businesses and to help new, small businesses start well.
In its first year, she told the group, meeting for breakfast at Krause's, the council assumed responsibility for the Chamber’s “Airman of the Quarter” program and for its Legislative Conference.
In that first year it also staged the first “Business to Business lYade Show,” she said. That show permitted businesses that sell to other busbies-
6 Landmark’ insurance bill sought
AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Ann Richards told a House committee that insurance reform would help consumers "get the coverage they need at a price that they can afford.”
Richards and Attorney General Dan Morales on Monday both called for major reforms opposed by the insurance industry. She termed insurance reform one of the important pieces of legislation of the current session.
Speaking to the House Insurance Committee, Richards said consumers believe "they are not getting what they consider a square deal from the insurance industry.”
Bul insurance industry representatives are opposed to certain provisions of the legislation, saying the measure “may do as much harm as good to both consumers and the industry.”
ses to interact with each other, learning more of the local availability of goods and services.
In its second year, Hermes said, lacing her remarks with humor and calling frequently on Downtown Association President Bob Shima to repeat her theme — “We create our own business environment” — the SBC sponsored the “Small Bushless Week” recognition of local firms and awarded the first “Small Businessperson of the Year" award, which went to Mary Jane Nalley.
Also created in that second year by the SBC, she said, was the Bushless Advisory Committee which provides educational resources for small businesses. The committee has provided hospitality training sessions for both the managers and the “front line” employees of firms that deal primarily with visitors to New Braunfels, has staged a marketing seminar, and was responsibility for the Small Business
Development Center which sees a trained business counselor available at the Chamber offices one day each month to work with local firms. That day, Hermes said, “is always filled.”
Also developing during the SBC’s second year, she said, was the Venture Capital Club which still is in the conceptual stages.
In its current, third year, Hermes said, the SBC has given birth to the Free Enterprise Committee which has moved to reinstitute the Shadow Program and which will sponsor a Spring Family Trade Show April 13-14 in Landa Park.
The Shadow Program, she explained, sees youngsters “shadowing” local businessmen for a half day to get a true picture of the free enterprise system.
And the Spring Family Trade Show is an outgrowth of the Business to Business Trade Shows. It will permit firms to offer their goods and services
to consumers as the Business to Business shows have permitted them to be offered to other firms.
Hermes also outlined the Shop and Buy New Braunfels program that is being chaired by her husband, Dennis.
That program, she said will be an educational effort pointing out that some $500,000 a day leaves New Braunfels and is spent by local businesses and individuals in San Antonio and Austin or on mail orders.
That volume of lost business, she said, means the loss of some $5,000 per day — or $1.5 million per year — in sales tax revenue, not to mention the loss of property tax on goods not stocked by local merchants.
Concluding her presentation, Hermes again repeated her theme—“We create our own business environment” — and then, recapping the Small Business Council’s efforts, said, “And this is only the third month of the third year of the Small Business Council!”

“The board of directors join me in thanking the CISD board for their generous contribution ami wish to commend them for their efforts to preserve a part of Comal County’s unique heritage,” Stratemann said. “We know that many of the former students of Solms school will enjoy visiting it in its new home.”
Purdum said the school building is in fairly good shape.
“It's got a good floor in it and good beams under the floor,” he said. “Principally it's going to be paint up (and) fixup
In 1990, the Heritage Society looked into acquiring the old Danville building, also a CISD building.
“We were looking at the Danville Building but didn't have the money to bid on it and while we were out there at the complex we saw this other building and actually it's better suited for the Heritage Society’s purpose," Purdum said. “It’s much larger and provides the opportunity for storage and meeting space.”
The Heritage Society operates the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture for the Braunfels Foundation Trust and sponsors the Heritage Exhibit annually during Wurstfest. In partnership with the Conservation Society and the Sophienburg, the Heritage Society sponsors Folkfest and Christmas Candlelight Tour. The Heritage Society also is one of the founding members of the newly created Historic Museums Association.

Xeriscaping urged as method of preserving springs, aquifer

People wanting to preserve Comal Springs can conserve water by xeriscaping their yards.
As much as 40 percent of summer water can be conserved through xeriscaping, which is preserving water with creative landscaping, said Kelly Morris, division manager of information and education for the Edwards Underground Water District.
“If you start this year and scale back, you can save a little bit at a time,” she said, adding that xeriscaping an entire yard would save a tremendous amount of water.
When replacing plants damaged by a frcc/.c, landscapers can begin xeriscaping by subsiituring low-water plants. Native plants in Texas don’t need much water because nature adapts to the climate, she said.
Carolyn Eagle, public information coordinator for the EUWD, said xeris-capc plants should be selected for their low-water requirements, adapta-

bility to the region’s soil, climate and visual appeal.
The new gardening technique involves seven principles: good planning and design, limited turf areas or lot sizes, efficient watering methods, soil improvements, use of mulches or tree bark around trees, low-water demand plants and appropriate landscape maintenance.
Even though xeriscaping adds beauty to the yard and conserves water, customers might have a difficult time purchasing the plants. “It's not cheap and the price has not come down like it should," Morris said.
Because xcriscape plants are not in high demand, the plants have limited availability and are expensive. As the demand rises, the price decreases and the plants become more available, she said.
Xeriscape plants include ground covers such as Creeping Grape and Asiatic Jasmine; vines like the Virginia Creeper and Catclaw Vine; shrubs such as Autumn Sage and the Coral
Bean; trees like Afghan Pine and Bur Oak; bunch grasses like the Eastern gamagrass and the Fountain Grass; and turf grasses such as the Bermuda or the Buffalo Grass.
“Xeriscaping is a display of both Texas pride and genuine expression of concern for one of our most precious resources — water,” Eagle said.
For more information about xeriscaping, call EUWD at (512) 222-2204.
