Oak Village North residents defeat incorporation issue
By CRAIG HAMMETT
Residents of Oak Village North defeated a proposal to incorporate, voting 327 to 103 against incorporation.
"I think most of us were against incorporation because we really do not fear San Antonio's extended annexation," said Walter Hoermann, one of those against the incorporation. "...We would be happy to leave things the way they are. We didn't want any large additional taxes."
Proponents of the incorporation such as Bill Wilson said the process would have allowed the community to "take control of its own destiny."
Wilson said the community needs to ensure life as residents know it in the community would remain that way.
"One common thing people on both sides have said is to be able to keep things the way they were when they first moved here," he said.
Wilson said residents in the area have a tendency to not "do anything about anything” and that attitude could hurt them in the future.

Candidates Paul Fraser, Brenda Botchers Freeman and Tim Walker have won the right to serve New Braunfels as city council members.
Approximately 2,500 voters cast their ballots on Saturday to determine the winners in the three races.
One race was won by a narrow margin. In the District 4 race, Fraser, the incumbent, defeated challenger Gary Kahlig by just 22 votes.
Fraser received 470 votes and Kahlig received 448 votes.
Fraser said he predicted a close race.
"I am obviously yay pleased. It was a "squeaker." I had been predicting a "squeaker." The people who supported me came out and went to work. They did a lot of phone-banking and a lot of walking the streets," said Fraser.
"My competitor did a good job. I am pleased that I have won. I have a real dream for the future of this city. I want a council that can work together. I want us to be a united council and work things out and stop all this talk about divisiveness. I don't think we have a divided council," said Fraser.
"There are some real localized things that need some attention but they ate nothing that has just surfaced. We have a continuing problem in Greene with parking. We are working on the Veramendi Street project. There are some street problems in Rhine Terrace and now we are planning to resurface Post Road," said Fraser.
"On a more general level, I will watch the issue of burning toxic waste. That is one I must keep my eye on. I do think we need a charter review and vre need to elect the mayor at large," he said.
Fraser’s opponent, Kahlig, said he believes it was a good race and said he plans to stay involved in city activities.
"I have always been involved and been a part of foe community. I will keep my linger on the pulse of the city," said Kahlig.
"I ran a good race. I tan a race based on issues, and I did my best. I want to offer congratulations to the winner," he said. "I also want to thank the constituents of District 4 and thank my supporters."
In the District 3 race, Freeman, a local attorney, took a decisive victory over her opponent Jim Biedermann, a semi-retired businessman.
Freeman received 679 votes and Biedermann received 373 votes.
Freeman said she is pleased to have
the chance to push for a better city.
"I am very excited. I am looking forward to working with the council and all the different people in town," said Freeman.
“I am ecstatic with the results.
Mr. Biedermann ran a good race. I hope he will get in there and help us. We need all the help we can get," she said.
"There are a lot challenges we've got to look at. I am in hopes that the council will delay voting on the budget. I hope the new council will get to vote on the budget it will be working under," she said.
Biedermann said he believes the race was fair and he is pleased the citizens of New Braunfels took the opportunity to voce.
"It was a good race. I compliment Mrs. Freeman on running a good, dean race. It was all about the issues," he said.

"I can’t say there is any one thing that will take priority," he said Biggadike offered his congratulations to Walker on the victory "This has been a memorable event in my life. New friendships were created. I want to thank all those who helped in my campaign," said Biggadike.
NBMS students detained after officials discover handgun
By JENNIFER ROMPEL
Two New Braunfels Middle School students were detained by New Braunfels police officers Thursday following an attempt to sell a handgun on campus.
According to police department officials, a 13-year-old student and 14-year-old student were detained by officials Thursday. Officials said foe students woe inside foe school building
and one student allegedly was trying to sell the gun to the other student.
The student who brought the gun to school was allegedly supposed to sell it to another student who claimed that some kids in his neighborhood were bothering him, according to Charles Birdberry, superintendent for the New Braunfels Independent School District.
The gun was allegedly sold to foe other student, but no money was exchanged so the teen selling the weapon asked that the gun be returned,
Breadberry explained that another student saw foe gun and reported foe incident to administrators. Administrators then asked foe boy to come into the office, and administrators searched his back pack, Baldberry said.
"At this level 90 to 95 percent of the time, kids tell us these things because foe teachers and foe administrators have such a good relationship with foe students," said Bradbeny.
The weapon allegedly being told
was a .22 caliber handgun, according to Corporal Martin Mayer, of the New Braunfels Police Department.
Possession of a firearm where a firearm is prohibited is a third degree felony for adults. However, these suspects are juveniles and foe case will be handled by juvenile authorities in Comal County.
An expulaion hearing is scheduled for this week with the NBISD school board. Bradbeny Mid expulsion is the normal punishment for foil type of
offense and that if the two boys are expelled, it is possible they may not be able to return to school until January 1995.
Bradbeny said this type of incident has never occurred rn the middle school before. He said because of the harsh punishments by the board, these type of incidents hardly ever occur in the district
The names of the two students are not being released because they are juveniles.
