The two ramps have been closed to the public since September 1984. Materials have been ordered to give the ramps a new look and to make them safer. The county Community Education classes sponsored by the Comal Independent School District in the Canyon I Ake area are continuing, with several new ones scheduled to begin soon. There is still space in the Quilted Vest class. The time and location have been changed to 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Canyon I .ake Action Center. “This is a well-designed course that offers plenty of instruction for beginners, yet enough variety and creative challenge for more experienced students,” said Ann Toussaint, Mountain Valley coordinator for Community Education. received a shipment of materials Friday but had to send it back because it was not what the county hrd ordered, McCoy said. iArry Kearney, assistant county engineer, said the new materials will include safety signs to warn drivers that the lake is ahead. These signs will be placed about 300 feet from the water. The county will also place buttons on the ramps to warn drivers that Both classes met at Mountain Valley School.

The ramps at Canyon Lake Village and Canyon I,ake Village West were closed Sept. 5, 1984 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requested the county make certain repairs and improvements to the ramps before lease agreements be renewed. Before the ramps were closed, they were operated by the county under agreements with the federal health insurance, as well as Medicare. An Insurance Workshop will be given free by Mack Ball on Oct. 21 from IO a.m. until noon at the Action Center. This workshop is designed to answer questions concerning life and Tin Punching, with a leaning toward Christmas ornaments using Vi Johns’s painting method and glue- government. Those agreements expired December 1983 and on Village ramp and February 1984 on the Village West ramp. Two lake area businessmen say they will be very happy to see the ramps open again. “A lot of people would just drive up to the motel and see that the ramp is closed then they would just turn around and drive off,” said Ernst Oberhoff, manager on trims, will be held from 9 a.rn. to noon Nov. 4 at the Action Center. Tuition is $3.75, plus 50 cents for lab. The regularly-scheduled Defensive Driving course will he held Oct. 29 and 31 from 6 to IO p.m. at Mountain Valley School.

The motel is very near the Village West boat ramp. “In the summer we would have calls asking for reservations, then that would be the second thing they would ask Of they had a boat ramp) and then they would just change their minds,” he said. Oberhoff estimated that his business had dropped between 40 and 50 percent this past summer because the boat ramp was closed. “That’s a whole lot when you depend on summer for your business,” he said. "Even this time of year, the ramp would be good for business. There are a few people still going out.” Doyle Patton, owner of the Holiday I/Kige motel near the Village ramp, said his business has been off about 25 percent because the ramp is closed. “Most of my clients have boats and I had to be honest with them arid tell them the ramp was closed,” he said That’s one of the advantages out here versus staying in New Braunfels. People with boats would rather stay out here... A lot of them just went to the other motels at the lake.” The county engineer said he hopes to get the Turkey Cove ( Village West) ramp open without much delay. But he said the Village ramp will need more major work-some work will have to be done underwater. He said the unusually cold winter last year and heavy rains in the spring have caused more road problems than usual, “We’re not able to assign construction work because we're still making repairs,” McCoy said. “We aren’t really able to do all the things we would like to.” McCoy said that after the two closed ramps are opened, the county is planning to make improvements on the other six boat ramps at Canyon I,ake. Philip Parsley, reservoir manager for the U.S. Corps of Engineers, aid before the two ramps can he used, the district office in Fort Worth must approve reports on the improvements “It's not something we can just run out and do in a few days with a few men,” McCoy said New community classes are scheduled Cost is $15, plus $3 lab fee. A supplies list for the remainder of the materials will be given in class. Aerobics Plus and Aerobic Workout will begin new seven-week sessions soon. Shearon Crane leads the Aerobics Plus classes from 4 to 5 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Marty Nolan and Sandra Watkins lead the more stenouous Aerobic Workout classes on Mondays and Thursdays at 6.45 p.m. and on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. On a roll Pat Belcher watches her eon Kevin Belcher throw dice at one of the many games at Saturday's bazaar et the VFW Hall in Settler.
