That's a pretty fair description of the Sattler area at Canyon Lake, as Pedernales Eletric Cooperative employees work on the Sattler
substation. Sattler is hungry for more electric power, due to growth in the area, and PEC is expanding its cabailities to handle that growth.

County buys truck, waits on new jail furniture
By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer
County commissioners awarded bids on road equipment, opened bids for jail furniture and called for bids on computer equipment in Wednesday’s meeting.
Riley Mack’s bid of $43,690 was accepted on the diesel-powered truck trailer with a delivery date of 120 days.
“The Berg (Truck and Implement) bid had to be eliminated because it did not meet specs. There was no warranty and the rear axle did not meet specifications,” Clark (Mac) McCoy, county engineer, told commissioners.
Ewald Ford’s diesel tractor bid of $16,194 won over the other two vendors. Also the rotary mower bid was awarded to Dietz Tractor Co. in Seguin for $9,995.
“The Hilbert Implement Co. bid had to be thrown out because the John Deere tractor they bid on did not meet our specifications.” McCoy explained.
The furniture bids will be given to architect Chris DiStefano for review, but just a glance at the bids suggests that three companies may be supplying the jail furniture.
The architect had broken the furniture bid down into three categories: regular office furniture, high density storage and custom-made storage units.
In the first category Comal Office Products was the apparent low bidder with $35,828. Wayne Myers Co. of Edna bid $36,642, amd Centex of New Braunfels bid $40,827.
On the high density storage, TAB Products of San Antonio was the apparent low bidder with $24,640. Wayne Myers also bid the second category at $25,023.
On the custom-made items, only Wayne Myers bid on it with $7,372.
However Myers, which bid the entire package, gave a total bid of $68,218 — $1,000 less than the three totals.
In other business, commissioners called for bids on a new computer system for the jail costing around $50,000.
Fred O’Neal, the county’s information systems service director, showed commissioners the different options and advantages of going with a new computer, including saving money on having to upgrade the Courthouse computer for some period of time.
This will free seven ports on the Courthouse computer where the seven jail units will be removed and connected to the new jail computer. This plan also will give additional storage in the Courthouse computer because all of the booking data and the internal sheriff department data such as personnel records will go into the new computer. O’Neal said.
The Courthouse computer and the new jail computer will have to be connected so that they can talk to each other about justice system
To allow this communication, the $50,000 will include three sets of modems (one-to-one communicating terminals that allow two separate computers to talk to each other) and the connecting cables, two dedicated t the booking data and one used for all other functions. This will allow a speedier return of information from the justice system when booking needs to know about previous arrests, O’Neal explained.
The bid will also include a software program from JIM Inc. that will allow the third circuit used for the less critical functions between the new jail computer and the Courthouse computer. They will be given a stand-in-line basis, which it does not now operate under.
“By having the jail on a separate computer, it will also allow a direct connection between the TCIC-NCIC computer (the national and statewide computer that gives local law enforcement motor vehicle identifications, out-standing warrants on individuals and arrest and conviction histories.)
“They are very strict about who has access to that information and under our present system the sheriff’s department cannot be connected directly to that state computer bank.” O’Neal explained.
The county auditor suggested that the three computer terminals already budgeted (two for county court-at-law and the probate computer for the county clerk’s office) be added in with this bid package.
“I bet we can get a better price if we go out for bids on all of this at the same time,” Bond said.

Meese—Mexico cooperating on war on drugs
in a statement late Thursday.
Meese indicated that American officials will tone down criticism of the Mexican government’s response to the slaying and to the general problem of drug trafficking.
Meese added that “we do want to step up and increase our own efforts in cooperation with the Mexican government against drug trafficking in Mexico.”
WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Edwin Meese III said today U.S. officials are “moderately encouraged by the cooperation we’re receiving’’ from the Mexican government in the quest to combat drug trafficking.
At his first news conference as the nation’s top law enforcement officer, Meese also said “there is no conflict” between the departments of Justice and State over how to deal with the Mexicans in the wake of the ab
duction and slaying last month of American drug agent Enrique Camarena Salazar.
One of 13 men detained in an investigation into drug trafficking has admitted he helped kidnap Camarena, officials said in Mexico City.
Seven of those detained in the city of Guadalajara were members of the Jalisco state Judicial Police, and the other six were either former police agents or civilians, authorities said
