City temporarily puts brakes on summer traffic solutions
By Dylan Jimdnez
New Braunfels City Council members disagreed on how to handle problems caused by summer tourists.
Betty Kyle, who lives on South Union Avenue, can’t get in or out of her own driveway when tourists flood the city’s streets for the four-month summer recreation season.
“I feel like a captive there,” Kyle told council Monday.
About 130 residents petitioned city officials to prohibit parking during summer months without a permit on a residential area bounded by South Street, Union Street, Mather Street and Peace Avenue.
Residents said they weren’t getting their mail and were worried tourists’ cars would block emergency services.
Police Chief Russ Johnson said permit parking would be difficult to enforce andATHLETES

This year, the district is paying $4,500 for registration and travel and $1,000 for stipends for coordinators and assistants, Ferguson said.

The classes help high school students get used to the more difficult pace of college-level classes, Kangas said.
“They need to challenge themselves in high school,” Kangas said.
For those not academically prepared, community colleges are an alternative intermediate step, Grasshoff said.
Community colleges have been growing in popularity during the past five years.
Public university enrollment has grown by 14 percent since 1998, while community and technical college enrollment have grown by more than 22 percent since 1998.
Beginning next year, all incoming Texas high school freshmen will be automatically enrolled in the recommended graduation plan and will have to request to be placed in the minimum or distinguished plans.
Still, students should chal-

The Transportation and Traffic Advisory Board also recommended hiring a consultant to address the city’s summer traffic problem.
Six council members favored holding off on the issue until Mayor Adam Cork could meet with Texas Department of Transportation and tourism officials. Cork will begin to meet after Wurstfest.
Officials hope to begin to work out a solution by next summer.
District 6 Councilman Ken Valentine stood alone in support of both the parking and traffic issues.
“This is an endemic problem we have in all the summer months,” Valentine said. “Their quality of life and pur-

“Everything we have comes from donations,” said Nancy Edelen, NBISD Special Olympics coordinator. “Budgets are tight: we depend on boosters.”
The district is paying for transportation and entry fees this year, Edelen said.
The boosters have two fund-raisers planned. Members are circulating a letter

He spoke out against the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau contract, which was presented to council Monday.
He said officials at some point have to consider whether the city’s infrastructure and staff could handle so much tourism and that the city should cut the CVB’s advertising budget.
The CVB plans to spend $100,000 more on marketing this year than last year.
Most of the increase will be used to market the planned civic center expansion.
Cork said the city needed to continue to market itself to maintain its place among top tourism destinations.
Council approved the CVB contract.

“Why not?” Waldrip asked.
“Because I don’t want to,” Tony answered. Ortiz was the man who led investigators to Terry Ulloa.
"So you’re going to disobey the order of this court to answer this question?” Waldrip asked.
“Yes, sir,” Tony answered.
Three investigators testified they saw what appeared to be a (frug sale take place minutes after Ortiz left the home July 13,2000.
“How soon after you sold to Mr. Ortiz on the 13th did you sell to anyone else?" Waldrip asked.
“He was the last one,” Tony answered.
“So, who else in your home was selling drugs?
“Nobody,” Tony answered.
"Your mother doesn’t sell drugs?” Waldrip asked, skeptical of his story.
“No sir,” Tony answered.
“.. .So who else sold drugs at your house?”
“Just myself," Tony answered.
“Just yourself?” Waldrip asked. “Do you realize what you’ve done here today?”
Fox objected, and Waldrip rephrased the question.
“You’ve waived your 5th Amendment right against incriminating yourself—” Waldrip said.
“Yes, sir,” Tony answered.
“—And testified before these people that you’re the only one selling drugs in your house, and your brother had nothing to do with it. You realize that what you’ve said here today is going to be used against you before another jury to convict you of another crime?” Waldrip asked.
