County determined to collect fees
“Our whole concept is to encourage people to come in and pay their stuff off," Wommack said. “If they owe fines or court costs, contact us and get them taken care of."
Comal County Clerk Joy Streater took out a full-page ad in the Herald-Zeitung
Sept. 4 listing 468 people who had failed to pay $262,628 in fines and fees.
As of Thursday, $9,269.22 of that money had been collected by people who responded to the ad. Streater is preparing another one, she said.
“Comal County is getting serious about collecting the fines and fees that are assessed in court,” Streater said. “This is step one. We’re just getting started, and we probably have this many more cases pending.”

Hurricane Rita may have cut down entrees
hard to make the contest successful.
“Usually we have 145 entries and we've got exacdy 80 this year,” he said. “Everyone kept talking about rain and the hurricane.”
Anderson said her fair experience was also a mixed bag. Though she won two grand champion awards, another chance for a ribbon went to the birds.
“For the preserves, it’s really important that you use a really good fig crop,” she said. “We were going to enter our figs in the garden section, but the peacocks and birds finished them off before Tuesday night.”

Police work to route safe for everyone
to,” bange said. "If a vehicle’s left in there, we’ll try to locate the owner and get it moved without having to tow them.”
The parking rules are in everybody’s best interests, Lange said.
“It may seem like an inconvenience, but we just want to get the parade through with no safety issues,” Lange said. “Also, if you leave a car on the route, people will be sitting on it. If they can’t see around it, they could scratch or dent it, so its best to just move them.”
IF YOU GO
■ Times: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. today
Finding a seat:
■ Go early, about 8 a.m. Nearby parking will be difficult to find as parade time approaches.
■ Bring a chair and sunscreen
■ The best place to view the event is along San Antonio Street near the start of the parade.
■ On the plaza, a popular viewing spot, there will more shade on the Morgan Chase side of the street.
Deciding where to park to watch the parade requires careful consideration, Lange said.
In many instances, the closest available spaces to the parade route aren’t the best
parking spaces because of the traffic gridlock after the parade, Lange said.
“Plan on a long wait at the end of the parade,” Lange said. "Traffic’s going to be heavy everywhere. It might be better to park further away and walk so you don’t get stuck in downtown traffic.”
Lange warned that pedestrians and children on bikes or skateboards will not be allowed to ride them back up the parade route.
“No traffic will be allowed to come back against the parade route,” Lange said. “What happens is everybody stands in front of people who are trying to watch. We’re telling everybody to go back on Mill Street or another side
street or just wait. We’re also asking people not to sit on the San Antonio Street bridge. We ll have an officer sitting there to make sure no one does," Lange said.
Police also request those on floats not throw things off them — particularly candy for children, which is a common practice.
“It’s too dangerous. Walk along and give it to kids, but if you throw it and it bounces back, theres a vehicle there," Lange said. “If a kid reaches for it, we can have smashed hands or worse."
OSHA levies record fine in wake of BP plant explosion
lr T«ka» 014**1 Dante lh
DAI J AS (AP) — BP Products North America Inc., the owner of the Texas City refinery where an explosion lulled 15 people in March, was fined mom than $21 million Thursday, a record for the government agency that oversees workplace safety.
The Occupational Safety and I lealth Administration agency also is considering whether to refer some violations to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution, said John Miles Jr., regional administrator for OS! IA.
Miles said the health and safety culture at the BP plant was lax, which contributed to die blast. Some violations had existed for years, he said.
The OSHA fine was nearly double the previous record.
BP said it has accepted responsibility and is working on corrective plans. BP has said human error led to the blast.
"We entered into this agreement because the mistakes that led to this tragedy were our mistakes ... and want to
focus on the job of setting things right," BP spokesman Ronnie Chappell said.
The agreement applies to more than 300 violations found at the BP refinery after the March 23 blast and covers a number of fires and other incidents at die plant after the explosion, Miles said.
