New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 17, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas ★ Meeting Continued from Page 1A street resurfacing projects, which are still needed in all parts of the city, have traditionally been paid for with federal revenue sharing money. “We are not going to have revenue sharing after October 1986. That has been the source of our paving money for five or six years and it’s going to be gone,” he said. “If we don’t get bond revenue money, I don’t know where it’s going to come from. There aren’t any Santa Claus federal funds that there used to be.” Michie added that, “I’d like to get it done all at one time and then we’re set for 15 years.” Along with newly paved streets should come curbs and gutters, Michie said. He explained that street-frontage property owners may join a curb assessment program and pay a certain amount per foot for the structures on his property. “It improves your property, it looks better, it drains better, and helps the re-sale of your property,” Michie said. “The property owner ought to pay for it. You either pay for it when you bought a house in a subdivision or you are paying for it now.” The city pays for engineering work and for the curbs and gutters in intersections, said Assistant City Manager Hector Tamayo. All the money allocated in the overlay project proposal will pay for material, he added, because city crews will do the work. Citizen Nayo Zamora asked Michie why there are only four areas included the bond issue proposal for drainage system improvements. “We’re looking at four areas out of 16,” Michie said. “We’re going to have to stay on this drainage every four or five years and get the rest of these 16 areas. We’re going to have to play catch up. “This city hasn’t spent a dime on major storm drainage structures in 16 years,” he said. “We're just getting started.” Proposition 5 asks for $2.5 million for improvements in areas of Green Valley, luanda and Fredericksburg, North Santa Clara and West San Antonio, and the Main Plaza. Attorney Paul Cedilla, who said it was a shame there weren’t more Mexican-Arnericans at the meeting, said he believes only one of the issues on the ballot is of an emergency nature. “I would recommend City Hall be the only one passed,” he said. “It’s a shame to go in there and see the facilities you all have." Cedilla said taxes for the school districts and the county also are set to increase “at a time when most of our people are going downscale. “A lot of my people are working on a poverty level,” he said, “You’re going to have people living on the streets; they’re not going to be concerned about the pool bubble, that the pool at the golf course is sinking. They’re not going to care about gullywashers for two or three months.” Cedillo suggested the city take one project at a time. “Build city hall and see how it is next year,” he said. “I would rather put up with a little increase than come up at the end of the year with a tax bite of $300 or $400 that I don’t have.” Michie responded that bond planners made a wise decision when they agreed to place the items on the ballot separately .so voters will have a “shopping list.” “You have a choice,” he said. “Vote on the propositions. Everyone has priorities.” Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday. District I voters go to Lone Star School; District 2, to First United Methodist Church; District 3, New Braunfels Presbyterian Church; and District 4, Eagles Hall. Child killed in S. A. bus hijack SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A man accused of hijacking a city bus and taking it on a wild and deadly chase through city streets with police was nervous and irritable but caused no problems during his brief stay at a Salvation Army shelter for the destitute, the center’s director says. Ronald Ennis, 33, was taken into custody after a man stole the unoccupied bus, then careened through four traffic accidents Wednesday, one of them killing a 3-year-old girl. Ennis was in the Bexar County jail Wednesday night in lieu of $150,000 bond on charges of murder and attempt to commit capital murder, jail Sgt. K. Ramirez said. Irma Escamilla, director of the Salvation Army in San Antonio, said Ennis stayed at the center six times in the last six months. He spent three nights at the center this month. "He never caused us any problems,” said Ms. Escamilla, who added Ennis stayed at the center for the last time Sunday night. Donald Frazier, who said he had known Ennis for about four months, said he saw him Tuesday night near the Salvation Army Center. “When I saw him last he was feeling pretty tipsy then,” Frazier said. “He never was violent to me, but he was to other people. He liked to fight. I saw him in a few fights,” Frazier said. Stocks★ Hijacker... Continued from Page IA Klinghoffer. Barak said a Portuguese cleaning worker and the ship’s hairdresser were forced at gunpoint to push Klinghoffer’s body over the side of the Achille l.auro. and then to “clean the blood stains off the ship." Prosecutor Dolcino Favi told a news conference in Genoa early today after the Achille I .atiro returned to its home port: “We have reconstructed the killing of the American in all the details." He said prosecutors were certain who shot Klinghoffer, why he was killed, and who threw the body overboard. However, he declined to provide details. Authorities have said the hi jackers were traveling on false documents, and have not identified them. But criminal complaint filed against them in the United States identify them as Hallah Abdal Al-Asan, Maged Yussef Al-Malaki, Hammed Al-Abdulla, and Abdel Atif Ibrahim Fatayer. Italian news agencies have said that a hijacker they identified as Hallah Abdullah Alhsan is 19 years old, and that the three other hijackers range in age from 20 to 23. Judicial sources have said the four deny killing Klinghoffer. Barak also played a tape recording on Israel television of a conversation in Arabic that he said was conducted Oct. 9 between PLO official Mohammed Abbas and the four hijackers, the same day they surrendered. The United States accuses Abbas of masterminding the hijacking and Barak said the ship-to-shore conversation proved Abbas knew of the pirate's plans in advance★ Rangers Continued from Page 7A    their best games of the season, Irvine The Greyhounds .switched from    said.
