New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 11, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas DowntownFrom Page 1 Braunfels Chamber of Commerce President Michael Meek. “There’s a certain domino effect in any industry. We saw it with the new apartments that came in when Grand Cyrpes came in,” Meek said.; ReadingFrom Page 1 they are and go forward,” Martinez said. “Our program is a stepping stone to get into the GED program.” Martinez said students have had different reasons for wanting to learn • to read. She said younger individuals usually want to learn to read to advance in their jobs or earn a GED. . Older people had different reasons, she sai<$- A 58-year-old individual ' wanted to be able to read to the ' grandchildren, while a 67-year-old wanted to be able to read the Bible. “It’s different for each one,” she • said. | But, one thing is the same, and “We’ve seen it with the motel* franchise business in this town, that virtually has transformed the motel accommodation industry.” Combined with the new Rhoads Interiors location, railroad depot improvements and the paver project, the Holz building and Huisache development will create a new thriving section of downtown, City Manager Mike Shands said. “That’s a really neat little pocket that’s developing right there by the railroad track,” Shands said. “It’s very exciting, because it’s a logical and needed progression outward from the plaza.” See the Sept. 21 Hereld-Zettung for en In-depth story shout the plenned development, Including photographs Mid Illustrations. that’s the dependency on the help of a tutor. Lee Hatch has been a volunteer tutor for the past four years. She Said she had taught other classes through her church and “had always been concerned about the literacy problem.” 1 She decided to volunteer her time when she moved to New Braunfels from Florida. “As soon as we came here, I started volunteering,” Hatch said, “h can be a lot of work, but it’s a lot of fun too. It feels great (when skills start improving). “It’s hard to imagine how anyone can get along in this world without being able to read. People must really have to work hard to find a way to get along.” Hatch said she spent about one-and-a-half hours twice a week working with the students. She previously tutored two sisters, but currently is helping only one of them. “The biggest difference between ..these two ... is their English proficiency,” she said. “They both have been very well-motivated so they learn quickly and rather easily.” Hatch said her current student had a limited English vocabulary. She said she was a good reader but had trouble comprehending. For example, after reading a passage, the student was unable to tell who got married because the word “marry” was not in her vocabulary, said Hatch. “For me, it’s really a problem with language and translating it. She’s really a pretty good reader, but her comprehension isn’t that good,” she said. Hatch said she enjoyed tutoring and was “not in any hurry to quit at all.” In fact, she may even increase her load, volunteering three times a week. She said she also would encourage others to consider volunteering. “If they enjoy interaction with others and enjoy teaching, it’s a wonderful thing to do,” she said. Authorities nab alleged smuggling ring By EDUARDO MONTES Associated Press Writer EL PASO, Texas (AP) — By her own assessment, Lidia Diaz-DeLeon is only a cosmetics saleswoman earning a modest $1,000 a month, someone who required the services of a court-appointed attorney after being accused of a crime. But the government sees her as a possible leader in an illegal immigrant smuggling ring that brought 500 to 600 people into the country each month t and, conservative estimates say, made some $9 million over two years. “Most of us have never seen an alien smuggling ring of this magnitude,’’ Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier said Wednesday. The agency is credited with infiltrating and cracking the ring. Diaz-DeLeon was among IO people indicted in federal court last week on charges of involvement in the El Paso-based organization, which has links to Dallas and other major metropolitan areas. Although federal authorities will not confirm that Ms. Diaz-DeLeon led the group, she is said to be considered a “major player.’’ Court records show die has listed her occupation as a Mary Ray cosmetics saleswoman who makes $1,000 a month. Her attorney is listed only as FPD, or federal public defender. Spontaneous combustion fire damages hobby shop By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Vapors from rags thrown in a trash can are believed to be the cause of a fire in a hobby shop along Interstate 35 Wednesday. Firefighters responded to a structure fire at Kerry’s Kollectable’s at 1937 Interstate 35 north at 5:17 p.m., battalion chief Don Zercher said. Zercher said the shop had just closed at 5 p.m. when the fire occurred in the metal structure. “They have a workshop area where they do staining, and they were using a stain made from organic materials,” Zercher said. Zercher said if those materials are put in a badly ventilated area, it could be dangerous. “You can have a spontaneous type of combustion,” he said. “The organic materials build their own heat. They were throwing rags and paper towels from the stain from the process into the trash can. Evidently the vapors were heavier than the air and the stain boiled from the vapotr from th* rags and tilled up the trash can...... Zercher said an electric fan feft-on was the source that ignited the vapors and started the fire. Zercher said firefighters were able to put out the fire in minutes.
