By CRAIG HAMMETT
Local residents with an interest in water issues might not want to miss Tuesday’s meeting of the Incidental Take Permit Panel at the Holiday Inn, 10 a.m.

The panel includes Moore and other representatives of regional water-related entities, including New Braunfels Utilities General Manager Paula DiFonzo.
The panel has met over the past few months a various locations throughout the region to discuss issues relating to the Edwards Aquifer and how to meet future water needs.
The New Braunfels meeting will include presentations by several local representatives of various water-related entities.
Opening remarks will be followed by words from Mayor Paul Fraser and
E.C. Momhinweg, president of the board at NBU.
Next will follow a report on the status of surface water supply for the city of New Braunfels from DiFonzo. Doug Miller, water advisor for Comal County and NBU, will then talk about ground and surface water in Comal County.

Local resident to be honored by German president Tuesday
By TECLO J. GARCIA
It’s an normally honor for someone in a club or organization to get an award from its president.
New Braunfels resident Helgard Suhr will be honored for her service by a president—the president of Germany
Suhr will be presented the Bundesverdien-stkreuz award For those who do not read German, in its closest translation, that means she receives The Cross of the Order of Merit.
It will be presented to Suhr here in New Braunfels Tuesday night by German General Counsel Dr. Klaus Aurisch from the German Consulate in Houston.
“He called me and said ‘I have some good news for you,’ and I thought, ‘what does he want
this time,’” she said laughing. “It was beyond my wildest dreams. I have won the chamber’s highest awards and have been honored by the city, but never something like this.”
The honor bestowed on Suhr came form German President Roman Heraog for services performed for the country while an American
Some of the things Suhr has done in the last several years that has caught the attention of German officials include raising $3,000 for the German Red Cross in 1989 when the Berlin Wall fell.
The money went to benefit needy East Germans. Suhr also chaired a concert for the Cur Koelnis-ches Symphony Orchestra from Cologne, Germany, and also assisted Germans living in Texas vote in German elections. Germans living abroad can vote in home elections.
Locally she has been a boost to several organizations including serving as translator for the Sophienbuig Museum and Archives for the last 30 years, and holding the post of vice president of the German Texan Society.
“I just love New Braunfels and appreciate everything I have had here and wanted to give something back to the community,” said Suhr. ”1 put all my energy in community service. I don't play tennis or golf or anything like that. Some people like to sit and watch TV, but to each his
Suhr said the community service drives her.
“I have three children and once they grew up and I had to put my energy somewhere else,” she said.
One group in New Braunfels that is more than happy to have Suhr around to host German groups and translate is the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce.
“Helgard is a strong chamber volunteer,” said Jim Scheele. “She is the type that follows things through and makes sure that things get done. She is a definite asset to the chamber membership.”
Surh said that many people volunteer and work hard in the community, however, she has just been lucky enough to be recognized.
