New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 3, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung □ Sunday, November 3, 1996 □ 3A Residents express concern about plans for Specht’s Crossing By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer A proposed lease for a public access point at Specht’s Crossing on old Spring Branch Road is awaiting the signature of a property owner. Comal County Commissioners Court approved a lease last week with George Beere for the development of a crossing on Specht’s Crossing on the Guadalupe River. The lease is for 8 acres and could include a road, turnaround, fence and a location for picking up and dropping off rafters and tubers. Property owners who live near the crossing have expressed concern that the proposed landing, which would be an intake area for people to launch or recover water craft, would bring troublemakers into the area. County Engineer Tom Homseth said it may take a month before Beere makes a decision on the lease. “The lease mentions the development of a landing, Homseth said. “The proposed name of it is Nichols Landing, which is apparently a family name of Mr. Beere’s.” Specht’s Crossing, which may have been used for more than IOO years, is a favorite among tubers and rafters who use it to get into the Guadalupe River. The county barricaded the crossing and closed the road to it two years ago after building a high bridge upstream on new Spring Branch Road During the rafting season, the crossing had been known as a haven for drug users, troublemakers and drunks who trespassed on private property and camped at the spot. Property owners and residents expressed their concerns at a special Comal County Water Oriented Recreation District meeting held at the Spring Branch Volunteer Fire Department on Wednesday night. Property owners complained to WORD members that it gets so ^tte cro^uftg, jbfit back out, hit'mailboxes and damage other property.    ,)    \*ri Carol Walenta said she and her husband bought their property because of her husband’s health. She said she does not like what is going on at Specht’s Crossing. “People come, park and camp there,” Walenta said. “The garbage there is bad. People who come out there know were the houses are. We came out here and paid good money for this. We don’t need that.” Paul Lindemann said the crossing has attracted such riffraff that he does not let his young daughters go down there by themselves. He said two teen-age girls once came running to his door because two drunken men had frightened them and would not allow them back into their car. “I don’t want my girls down there unless there is a way to control it,” Lindemann said. A full-time law enforcement presence is needed at the crossing to deter trouble during rafting and tubing season, Lindemann said. Residents also said accessibility for law enforcement authorities needs to be addressed because the parking congestion at times has made it hard for deputies to get their vehicles down to the crossing. Other property owners wanted the area to be shut off to the public, but Homseth said the county would have a hard time doing it. Since the new bridge was built with federal funds, one of the conditions of the agreement was to maintain public accessibility to the crossing, Homseth said.

Floren showed Friday during his opening performance at Wurstfest that he can still play polka tunes with the best of them. An audience that braved the cold to see Floren danced, clapped and sang along as he played. Richard and Louise Persyn of New Braunfels really got into it by waltzing and dancing around on the Wurstfest grounds. “We really like his polkas, and he has been around here a long time,” Mr. Persyn said. Maurice Fischer, vice president of the Wurstfest Association, said Floren’s appeal is just tremendous. “He adds a national dimension to Wurstfest since he was on the ‘Lawrence Welk Show,”’ Fischer said. “He is well-known from that, and he has appeal on an international level.” ‘Winter Texans come here just to see him.’ — Maurice Fischer _Wurstfest    Association People from Indiana and Iowa went backstage to ask for Floren’s autograph after he finished another foot-stomping performance. This is the kind of appeal Fischer likes about Floren. “Winter Texans come here just to see him,” Fischer said. “He docs a good job for us and plays great, whether it is cold or hot weather. Every time he plays his fingers really move. I ain impressed with him. “It is great to see people talk to him. He never turns anyone down.” Floren said he appreciates the many times the crowds have come to Wurstfest just to see him and his band. “I tell you they make me very happy,” Floren said about the crowds. “It gets better every year. I am having more fun with this music every year.” West End woman wins recycling lottery By ABE LEVY Slaff Writer A West End woman was the lucky winner of the first Cash For Trash Lottery sponsored by the city’s recycling advisory committee. Juanita Rodriguez of the 200 block of Bergfeld Avenue got a knock on the door from Don Ferguson, the assistant to the city manager, who told her she won $100 for participating in the city’s curbside recycling program. “I like to recycle because I think it’s good for the environment,” said Rodriguez, who began recycling when the city started its program almost two years ago. Rodriguez said she had no plans for money, but she said it could come in handy when it comes time to buy Christmas presents for her 14 grandchildren. The check will be presented to her a few minutes before the City Council meeting on Nov. 11. Rodriguez’s address was selected randomly for the award, which she won because her recycling bin was outside her door. “We really hope people use her as an example,’’ Ferguson said. "We were stunned by the participation in that area.’’ Ferguson said he is confident that during the lottery citywide participation in the recycling program rose above the 50 percent mark that New Braunfels has averaged over the past year. The lottery, which is funded by donations from H-E-B grocery stores and B.F.I., will be held quarterly with the next award presentation in February. Have you given to the United Way? open SUND** NOV.
