Parents, teachers rally to keep superintendent
By DENISE DZIUK
In anticipation of Monday night’s board meeting to discuss Superintendent Charles Bradberry’s contract, about 25 parents, teachers and employees of the New Braunfels Independent School District rallied on the plaza Sunday afternoon to show their support for the top administrator.
Bradberry, however, accepted a position late Monday with the Keller Independent School District near Fort Worth and will leave the New Braunfels district Dec. 31.
The NBISD Board of Trustees met Monday night to discuss Bradberry’s employment and contract.
“We felt we had to say something before the board meeting,” said Sylvia Taylor, who helped organize
Sunday’s event. “I’m hoping if it doesn’t sway (the trustees), they’ll at least stop and listen to us ..We need to be heard.”
The group carried signs saying “Mr. Bradberry is No. I,” “Bradberry should stay” and “We want Bradberry for five more years.”
“If they truly want what’s best for the district, they’ll work to keep Mr. Bradberry,” Memorial Primary School teacher Dayna Miller said.
Members of the group hoped Sunday’s actions would both “raise the consciousness of the community” and encourage the board to “do whatever it takes to keep him.”
“This district has been through enough turmoil,” said Chuck Faires, an NBISD parent and employee. “It needs a stabilizing force. I think he’s that force.”

But Bradberry said he realized he could not do that.
Bradberry said he told principals that if an agreement was reached on a few points in his contract, he would take it.
“That meeting (Monday night) really, from my perspective, didn’t have any impact at all,” Bradberry said. “I just wanted to make sure they would release mc ”

Higher engineering costs and bid estimates have prompted the Comal County commieaioners to call a special meeting Wednesday to determine the fate of the Faust Street Bridge.
The IO a.m. meeting will include New Braunfels officials, representatives from New Braunfels Utilities and apartment complexes near the bridge.
The project calls for restoration of the large metal bridge that crosses the Guadalupe River and joins the mill area to a residential area. The bridge has been closed for years.
Estimates originally set the cost for the project at $450,000.
The county planned to pay $90,000 for the work with the remainder coming from a Texas Department of Transportation grant. New Braunfels would take over control of the bridge.
But the engineering firm that did the preliminary designs and feasibility report revised the estimate to $570,000.
TxDOT rejected the county’s application for a second grant to cover the expenses.
“Knowing that now, we advised our consultant to get back to the basic project and bring it back within $450,000,” county engineer Tom Homseth said. “They did that. The county is proposing, or at least at this point looking at, proceeding into the design phase of the project”
But Homseth said he wants the county commissioners to consider a few issues before they approve the project.
Based on other projects involving TxDOT grant money, Homseth said the county has learned that it would be responsible for the entire cost of the project if the work is not completed.
Homseth said he was unsuccessful in attempting to gain more flexibility for the county in the bidding process.
“What I was trying to do was get bids in before acquiring other engineering costs,” the county engineer said. “But they wouldn’t be flexible. We're stuck with the rigid bidding constraints put out by TxDOT."
Homseth also is concerned about the county’s contract with the city.
The agreement allows the city to refuse to take over the bridge if the restoration does not meet the specifications of the contract.
Homseth said some changes were •made to the preliminary design and feasibility study to bring it within budget, and the county wants to be sure it does not violate the agreement.
“We wanted to make sure
whatever restoration we did do would satisfy them so it would
