Parking lot plans include tree care; Hinman work begins
By MARJORIE COOK
WURSTFEST PARKING - The Wurstfest parking area under construction at the recreation birdling in Landa Park will follow recommendations of County Agent Bill Schumann for protecting existing trees, said Park Director Court Thieleman.
Schumann prepared a report of recommendations at the request of the Wurstfest. A protective area with a radius of IO feet from each tree will allow oxygen and water to reach the tap roots through holes in concrete bricks that are strong enough to support parked vehicles. The rest of the parking area will be paved with asphalt.
Thieleman said that Wurstfest will contract and pay for a five-foot-wide sidewalk paralleling Landa Drive running approximately from the Old Landa power plant to the miniature golf course, circumventing all trees. The project will include a two-foot high rock wall bordering the walk and beyond it a 30-inch-wide planter bed. In addition to the walk, wall and planter area, Wurstfest also will pay for the asphalt to be spread by the city.
The city’s share of the parking lot project also includes ground preparation and base material for the parking area. Qty Council approved the shared project.
Schumann said he recommended that trees in the area be tip pruned to compensate for any loss of surface roots beyond the 10-foot radius.
Kathy Taylor Thieleman, a landscape consultant with a degree in landscape horticulture from Texas AAM, is retained by the city for park projects. She also does consulting work in Seguin, San Marcos and elsewhere in New Braunfels. Kathy is the wife of Park Director Thieleman.
Court said the stakes around the trees this week do not indicate the IO* foot-radius; they are merely markers to keep scrapers from hitting tree trunks. After the base is down, park crews will clear the 10-foot area for each tree.
H1KE-BIKE PATH - Work on Hinman Islam! parallel to the road is for a hike and bike trail. It will extend about three-fourths of a mile, from the railroad tracks at Elizabeth Street, through the island and along liberty on the edge of Prince Solms Park to East San Antonio Street.
The path is the first step in the $240,000 Hinman Island Redevelopment Project financed half with city and other local funding and half by the state. Completion date for the path will be before Wurstfest.
Also included in the total project, to be completed by late summer 1964, are retaining walls along the river with three step accesses for tubers, each access IOO feet wide.
Lighting and sprinkler systems will be installed, there will be more picnic tables and barbecue pits, and the playground equipment will be consolidated in one place with replacements, said Park Director Thieleman.
IT’S HERBERT! - Eberhard Lumber Co. is HERBERT Eberhard not Leon. My profuse apologies for the error in last week’s column. I did it.
HOTEL ARCHITECT - Richard My cue, San Antonio architect who will speak to the Historical Commission and guests tonight (Wednesday) on restoration of historical buildings, will show slides of restoration projects elsewhere. His projects include the Maverick Building in San Antonio.
Mycue, architect for exterior restoration of the Schmitz Hotel on Main Plaza, has been retained by the new owners for the interior project.
W.A. Meyers of Sugarland and Lee Brand of Houston purchased the hotel from the New Braunfels Conservation Society after the restoration.
The meeting will be held at 7:90 p.m. at Dittlinger Library.
RIBAND HOME - The “For Sale” sign on the 1912 Ernst Eiband home, 446 S. Seguin, doesn’t mean Sandy and Mary Jane Sandberg are closing up shop. Their New Braunfels Antiques continues to operate in the old Richards and Krueger building. It’s just that they are building a new home on Lake Dunlap and expect to move there from the former Eiband home in two months.
Sandy said the little 1890’s house adjoining the larger dwelling was known as “Auntie’s (Tante’s) House.” There resided the unmarried sister of Ernst and his brothers, Miss Clemie Eiband.
Sandy said he still has four years to go in his lease on the present shop premises.
NEW LOOK — Dr. Joe Kuehler is back in his office this week after extensive renovation af his dental establishment in the Landa Professional Building by Busy Bee.
Now the Kuehlers can brace themselves for renovation of their home.
FANS AND FANCIES — The new shop adjoining Dr. John Schaefer’s office in the old bakery building across from HEB is a veaSuf* af Sharon and Rogsr Hoi aud Fans aud Fancies not only is an outlet for Bm ceiling fans assembled locally from Taiwan-made parts. Leaded and beveled glass also is a specialty. Note the front door.
They will be carrying jewelry aud gifts from the Orient, including pearls and jade. No costume jewelry.
Rogers travels to the Far East with his cousin John Bowling, chief executive officer of the Americana Corporation, now out at Solms. He and Roger will be opening a plumbing supply house, handling parts imported from Taiwan.
Roger and Sharon are building a log home up at Horseshoe Falls which will be their residence until they build on their property at King's Point near Potters Creek Park at Canyon Lake.
The Hollands moved here in August from Houston where he had his own business as manufacturers’ representative.
YOUNG WRITER - Michener, move over. There's a new talent wanning up.
Joey Gyure wrote a history of the space shuttle when just ll, and his teachers wanted to have it published to place in school libraries.
His latest effort, 200 handwritten pages of Tho Lift of Hogor Stouboch, is in its second rewrite before sending on to the former Dallas Cowboy quarterback for approval. Joey, who will be 13 Sunday, also has in the works a series of science fiction short stories.
A seventh grader at Canyon Middle School, the budding author is in the school’s SAGE program for gifted children. Joey’s father, David, is head of the science team at Canyon High School, and his mother Neia, former home demonstration agent, teaches home economics at the middle school.
ST. JOHN’S - The $300,000 construction project at St. John’s Episcopal Church will add 2,000 square feet to the parish hall, and the rock walls are being completely renovated, reports Terry Adams.
Added are new classrooms, new offices for the rector and secretary, and more restrooms. The active congregation now totals 226.
CISD dismisses Jonas
By DEBBIE DelOACM Staff writer
Lester Jonas, security officer at Smithson Valley High School, was dismissed by Comal ISH trustees after executive session Tuesday night.

Trustee David Boatner said that state guidelines do not include due prooees for non-certified personnel. “In other words, no reason has to be given for his firing,” he said. “Bat I’m awa if bs ware to request a bearing, the board woald grant Ms request. HmI’s when any aerifies coaid ba
