Canyon High School Principal Will Krieg said Schlichting has ‘‘good qualities as an employee. He is hardworking. conscientious and very, very dependable. That’s his most outstanding characteristic," he added. By DANA OVERSTREET Staff writer More than a year after it was first accepted by New Braunfels City Council, the Chamber of Commerce recommendations for updating the city’s master plan have been sent to the Planning and Zoning Commission for review. The update recommendations include several items that already have been undertaken by the city, such as the construction of another fire substation (approved in Saturday’s bond issue election) and the widening of FM 725. The city’s master plan was last revised in 1977. On Wednesday, members of council, Planning and Zoning Commission, Chamber of Commerce committees, and the city-appointed Options and Opportunities Committee discussed some of the suggestions set forth in the chamber’s report and in the Options and Opportunities report. Chamber representatives on Oct. 14 had urged council to adopt the update, then make needed changes. The plan is a guideline, not a rule, they said. ‘‘This is merely a plan, and plans must change because situations change,” said Robert Uhr, a member of the Zoning Board of Adjustment. ‘‘I don’t see why you can’t adopt the whole thing.” Mayor Barbara Tieken said she was concerned that the zoning recommendations by the chamber FORT WORTH (AP) - A high school freshman is back on the cheerleading squad after the failing grade in typing that benched her was changed to passing. I^iurie Schellstede had been booted out of the six-member cheerleading squad under the state's no pass, no play rule, which mandates that students must pass all their courses to participate in extracurricular activities. and the city committees differed greatly, especially where they discussed commercial zoning. The chamber advocates strip zoning to protect the city’s boundaries, while the Options and Opportunities committee suggests cluster zoning at major intersections. Tieken was hesitant about approving the chamber committee’s list of 26 suggested rezonings, but was told that list was to be used as a guide. "Our recommendations were not meant for Planning and Zoning to go and just rezone everything," said Ted Cook, a member of the update coordinating committee. "Take it, study it, and digest it and if there’s a conflict, then it needs more study," he said, explaining that the Planning and Zoning Commission should review the recommendations from the chamber and city committees. "It’s up to Planning and Zoning to take what they want and throw out the rest," he said. City Manager Joe Michie said that a Planning and Zoning Commission should monitor all aspects of a city’s growth. "It just hasn’t worked that way in New Braunfels and it can’t work with one planner," he said. Planning Commission Chairman Joe Hartigan agreed and pointed out that commission members are not experts and need input from exports to make decisions. "A key element is that the city has to gut it up" and expand the planning department, he said. After making 97 on her typing test and averaging 96 on her classroom work, Schellstede was shocked to get a failing grade of 48 on Friday because of her typing “technique." So the 14-year-old appealed her case to the Southwest High School school board. Principal Glenn Mandeville said the failing grade was based on a technicality. He said her teacher failed to warn her parents that she Births Robert and Lynn Pfullman, 109 W. Center, Seguin, 8 lb., 7 oz. boy, Oct. 22. Ramiro and Martha Ayala, No. 5 was failing, as is required by law. Schellstede said her teacher "checked our posture and how we curved our fingers and said that was half our grade." As for lier teacher, J.V. Meek, he said he feeds misunderstood. "Only a typing teacher nuclei stands technique," he said. Almice Elliott, the district’s director of vocational office Roselawn Circle, 7 lb., 2 oz. boy, Oc t 22. Romulo and Estella Garcia, 22.' Gruene Rd.,61b.,9oz. boy, Oct. 24 education, said that the school district’s curriculum guide for beginning typing says technique ac counts for half the typing grade.
