"Water emphasis begins
The Ameriban Water Works Association this week is launching its nationwide educational campaign on clean drinking water this week. The campaign theme is There's a lot more to drinking water than meets the eye.*
Welome Home Committee still seeking participants
The New Braunfels Welcome Home Committee is kicking into high gear for this year’s Fourth of July celebration.
The celebration is a special tribute to all military personnel but will focus on those returning from Operation Desert Storm.
“We still need a float to put all the people who served in Operation Desert Storm on. We also still need volunteers as far as music and entertainment goes for... the fair grounds," said Wilton Wamecke, committee member and organizer.
The committee is looking for Comal County residents who served in the Persian Gulf war. Wamecke said all military personnel from the desert operation will be considered parade marshalls.
The parade will begin at ll a.m. after a special program sponsored by the Sophienburg Memorial Museum Bid Archives.
The parade already has several organizations lined up to participate, Wamecke said. The parade will include marching units from the
American Legion and its Ladies' Auxiliary. The Comal County Sheriffs color guard will lead the parade.
Other activites include games and contests at the fair grounds. The Kiwanis Club will handle the children’s games. Music will be provided by Ed Kadlecek and the Village Band. A mariachi band also has agreed to appear. There also will be a fireworks display sponsored by the New Braunfels Jaycees.
“People are acting like Operation Desert Storm is over and its not. They’re taking down their flags, but there’s still over 220,000 people involved with Operation Desert Storm. We need to keep thinking about them," said Cheryl Scott, committee member. Scott added that the Fourth of July celebration is a way to say “thank you" to all military personnel.
The Welcome Home Troops Committee will hold another meeting at 7 p.m. May 29 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. For more information contact Wilton Wamecke at 620-1569 or Cheryl Scott at 629-0441.

There are different wants and needs for cyclists throughout Texas and
Douglas is looking for a lot of citizen input.
There is legislation pending to establish a five-member citizen advisory group," Douglas said. “We also hope to appoint deputy bicycle coordinators in each of the state’s 24 highway districts."
Douglas says that he won’t be dealing with 'hike and bike’ trails as his focus will be more transportational than recreational. When planning new road projects, the Highway Department will now think about the need to have extra space striped off for bike
This week’s focus on home burglary
New Braunfels-Comal County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 in reward money this week for information that could solve this week’s Crime of the Week, which deals with a burglary of habitation.
Sometime between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 pm. May I, 1991, unknown suspects unlawfully entered a residence in the 300 block of Santa Clara Avenue while the residents were not at home.
Suspects left the residence laking with them jewelry, including several ladies diamond rings, a man’s gold ring, earrings, and a gold cross with diamonds.
Anyone with information about this crime, or any felony crime, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 620-TIPS. All calls are anonymous.
Crime Stoppers pays cash for information leading to the arrest and indictment of persons involved in felony crimes.
lanes, he added.
One problem facing the department is coordinating with individual cities. “Ideally, each city would have its own bicycle coordinator to work with us,” Douglas said. He added that this would be a way for cities like New Braunfels to work with the state in improving bicycle access to recreational areas.
Another part of Douglas’ job will be to educate bicyclists and motorists to get along better. “When one bicyclist doesn’t follow the traffic laws it reflects badly on all others,” Douglas said. “We need to encourage mutual respect to the point that every vehicle is treated as a vehicle no matter what kind it is."
“America’s drinking water is the best on earth.
... Providing clean drinking water is becoming increasingly complex, and the public needs to be better informed for making some personal and public decisions," said John Daniel, chairman of the 1991 National Drinking Water Week Coalition.
Friends For Rivers, Inc., of New Braunfels and the Water Oriented Recreation District are hosting a month-long River Awareness Festival in conjunction with the campaign.
The main events are scheduled May 31 and June I. The festival’s biggest events include a trash pick up along the Guadalupe River, films and live music at Gruene Hall.
The activites are aimed at educating the community about water conservation and water safety.
Betty Walls, president elect of Friends For Rivers, said the focus of the festival is educating the public about water conservation, water protection and water safety.
Jim Ruppel, the resource manager for New Braunfels Utilities, said water is going to get more expensive all over the nation.
“It’s important to get people in a conservation state of mind. We try to tell people to conserve water every summer.”
New Braunfels Utilites is building a surface water plant to take water from the Guadalupe River. It will supply six million gallons of water a day to New Braunfels residents.
“The surface water plant ... will take a six-million-gallon-a-day load off the aquifer," said Ruppel. The plant should begin operating in 1992.
