seen her since just before the July flood — about three months before the report was made.
Heidi Search Center volunteers worked for two days looking for Saur, but didn’t find her, Ward said.
Saur’s body was located about 40 yards from Mountain Laurel Drive.
Ward said relatives related that Saur lived a reclusive Lifestyle in her home on Bret-zke Lane and didn’t have much contact with her family*

would recognize her because she often walked in the evenings,” Ward said.
Two neighbors who stopped to see what was happening Saturday evening confirmed that.
“She walked all hours of the day and night,” one neighbor said.
Another regularly walks in the neighborhood himself.
“It’s weird,” he said. “I’ve walked right by here I don’t know how many times and she was just over there. You couldn’t see from here, though.”
pie want to come here. We just need to make it easier. They’ll be flocking to our doors,” Kendrick said.
During his first term, Kendrick has had his finger in a lot of pies. He’s happy with what the city has accomplished and in his role on those gains.
“"I mainly want to continue a lot of these things that have been started. I want to work to keep the awareness focused on our rivers, the heart of our city and support our state representative in her effort to receive additional state funds to clean them up,” Kendrick said.
“I was instrumental in getting the city to launch into aerial mapping and I want to continue with the GIS mapping process. The more information we can provide to not only outside developers but our own citizens on any given piece of real estate in our city, the easier it will be to attract quality development.”
Through an original proposal by Kendrick to look at limitations on impervious cover to safeguard against flooding, the city has moved forward to review at all its development codes and ordinances and combine them into a single, unified devel
“We have a 16-member steering committee of which I'm a member, to take a look at all of our development codes, including but not limited to zoning, subdivision and drainage in an effort to make our city more user friendly for people trying to develop and safer for our citizens,” he said.
Kendrick was an impetus behind a months-long reassessment of how the city manages recreation on its rivers.
What emerged was an advisory committee appointed to make recommendations about river management and a comprehensive river management plan that embraced cleanup, law enforcement and marketing — setting a $1 fee to finance the program.
Accomplishments Kendrick can point to include increasing parkland — helping preserve Camp Comal as ball-fields instead of a home for a new wastewater treatment plant — and increasing the money available for economic development by eliminating the 4A sajes tax and merging it into the 4B economic development/infrastructure improvement program.
sideration, I have decided to run for a second term as a representative of the people for City Council District 3. Thank you for your past and % continued support,” Flume said.
“"I’d like to continue the work I started in my first term, and my main tiling is trying to do these things without increasing taxes. That’s one thing I keep hearing, ‘Please don’t raise our taxes.’ I feel the same way. I don’t want my taxes to go up," Flume said.
“I think the city council’s priorities are the health, safety and welfare of our citizens. Health pertains to sports facilities and hike and bike trails; safety to adequate
police, fire and good streets, and welfare is our tax rate and quality of life,” she said.
“I think we’re still way behind on sports facilities for youth,” Flume said.
She said she’d like to see the city develop a sports complex.
“They raise money, and they take care of keeping our youth busy and off the streets,” she said.
The city should become more aggressive about pursuing grants, Flume said.
“I’ve been trying to push for a‘grant writer for the city. I keep hearing there are all these grants out there. We don’t seem to be trying to get them,” Flume said.
“I think the largest issue

facing us is growth. We’ve got to be able to address some of these problems we’re facing right now. I voted against annexation because I felt the city needed to take care of what it already has.”
She will continue her work toward getting neighborhood streets fixed, Flume said.
In February, Flume and supporters circulated a petition that put a proposition on the May ballot that calls for the city to reduce its economic development (4B) sales tax by one-third and use that money to fix neighborhood streets that cannot now be repaired with 4B funds.
“The majority of 4B tax comes from the citizens of this city. I think it should go
back to maintaining or upgrading their quality of life,” she said.
Another issue Flume has pushed for and wants to continue with is study of what to do about the deer who call New Braunfels home, eating landscaping, causing traffic hazards and otherwise making nuisances of themselves.
So far, only Gale O’Hara Pospisil, a fellow businesswoman who is a residential real-estate appraiser, has filed to seek the District 3 seat.
Flume’s Friday announcement sets up a rematch of the 2000 contest in which she bested Pospisil in a three-way race with Don Talley for the seat held by businessman Randy Vanstory.
