Contract with chamber approved 6-1
By ABC LEVY
The city council approved a contract Tuesday with die New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce to market and teen* new businesses to the area.
In a 6-1 vote, the contract was awarded to the chamber, which has a similar contract that expires June XI
The contract authorizes the chamber to market new industry with the hope that it will create more jobs for the New Braunfels area.
The money for the contract comes from a portion of the half-cent sales-tax revenue, which is projected to collect more than $500,000 annually.
The chamber's offer includes about $80,000 from its own membership-supported budget.
The only two proposals the city received for the contract were from the chamber and a Houston-based company, IMS Worldwide, Inc. IMS's proposal would have cost the city $60,000 up front and an additional billing of $210 per hour.
Those who attended Tuesday’s council meeting got a good laugh.
Before the council began its meeting, Mayor Jan ICennady was in the middle of reading a proclamation to name May 25 to 31 “Emergency Medical Services Week,” when the EMS crew got an emergency call.
In a flash they were gone, and Kennedy read to only Fire Chief Phil Baker while the audience and city officials watched with delight and laughter.
“It’s pretty typical. Anytime you have something. special, you can bet we’re going to have a call,” Baker said.
The EMS crew, which is trained in emergency medical procedures and firefighting, left the meeting to tend to a reported car fire in die 1200 block of Walnut Avenue. Ironically, it was a simple case of a motorist in need of assistance.
“Here we are receiving a recognition for something and in the midst of this, (the crew) had to do their job,” Baker said. “We didn't get the chance to receive the recognition.”
Lawmaker says transit gun ban unenforceable
By PEGGY FIKAC
Associated Press Writer
AUSTIN (AP) — The state attorney general says transit authorities can't use the state criminal-trespass law to keep people from carrying handguns on buses.
“The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals is the highest authority on the criminal law of Texas, and it has made clear drat criminal trespass may not be committed on a motor vehicle,” said the opinion signed by Rick Gilpin, deputy chief of Attorney General Dan Morales’ opinion committee, and released Wednesday.
Morales spokesman Ward Tisdale said the opinion does not change a 1995 attorney general’s ruling that transit authorities may prohibit those
who have concealed weapons from boarding their buses.
But die opinion does not address what other law transit authorities may use to enforce such a ban.
And the concealed-gun law's chief author, Sen. Jerry Patterson, said the attorney general’s opinion means that existing transit authority gun bans are unenforceable.
“This is the first of many ill-conceived and unconstitutional restrictions placed on concealed-handgun license holders by governmental entities that will be found to be legally unenforceable,” said Patterson, R-Pasadena.
“Concealed-handgun license holders may ride the bus without fear of retribution if their weapon remains concealed,” he said.
Martin Hernandez of San Antonio and David Hernandez and wife, Angel, of Wichita; five sisters, Lucy Gallegos and husband, Jerry, Stella Mendoza and husband, Abraham, Polly Flores, Lefty Covamibia and husband, Eddie, and Gloria Hernandez, all of Uvalde; five nieces and three nephews.
Hernandez was a 1985 graduate of Uvalde High School and worked at Sherwin Williams in San Antonio.
The Hernandez and Cordova families would like to thank everyone for their love and support during these hard times. Thanks also for the many cards and flowers.

Netanyahu takes lead over Peres in Israeli vote
By KARIN LAUB
Associated Press Writer
JERUSALEM (AP)—After a tense night of seesawing vote counts opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu had slim lead today over Prime Minister Shimon Peres, in an election that exposed the rift between Israelis on how to proceed with Mideast peace talks.
The final outcome was not expected before Friday afternoon at the earliest Peres still had a slim chance for a come-from-behind victory with the counting of more than 100,000 absentee votes. But Israeli commentators called it a Netanyahu win.
A Netanyahu government is expected to slow the pace of peacemaking with Palestinians and to retract promises made by Peres, the architect of Mideast peace.
The leader of the right-wing Likud Party has said he would block the creation of a Palestinian state, build more Jewish settlements in die West Bank, refuse to negotiate any return of Jerusalem to the Arabs, and halt a planned Israeli troop withdrawal from die West Bank town of Hebron.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was
briefed throughout the night in his seaside headquarters in Gaza City. His officials expressed concern about a Netanyahu victory, but said die Likud leader could not reverse what had already been achieved.
“The situation is going to be a bit more complex, but we are not in a panic,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestinian legislative council.
