Prayers Needed: Robert “Bob” Katz
From: George Davis
Subject: Retired Officer ROBERT KATZ
Mrs. MARILYN KATZ informed me that ROBERT had fallen and broken his right arm.
He went to the ER and they sent him to an orthopedic surgeon.
She said the orthopedic surgeon said the right arm was broken close to the shoulder socket and due to all of his other medical problems they would not do surgery. They placed his right arm in a sling and sent him home to rest.
James Anderson Park – Medina Lake
Dan Higginbotham is the caretaker and point of contact for picnic, pavilion, and campsite reservations for premium weekends
(Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day).
The new electric gate and camera system is working. The keys will no longer work and members will have to utilize the key fob in order to gain access to the park. It will record your entrance and exit.
Here is how you obtain a key fob:
First, you must be a Benevolent Fund member. Next, if you have a current key you must present the key in order to obtain a fob, free of charge. If you lost your key or never had a key, then you will need to pay a $10 deposit for the fob. Members will be required to sign for the fob, as well as the new Park rules.
Then the member will be issued one (1) fob. The SAPOA will have FOBS available at their office.

NOT Open to the General Public
Michael Helle, President of the San Antonio Police Officers Association, issued the following statement after reported remarks by Mayor Ron Nirenberg at a mayoral debate on April 8th, in which he attacked the character of the San Antonio Police Officers Association. “It’s a shame, but not surprising, that Ron Nirenberg has chosen to attack the San Antonio Police Officers Association and assume he knows what police officers want or think. Ron has spoken out and voted against police officers at every turn. He has no idea what our officers face every day and you’d be hard-pressed to find support for this mayor among the rank and file.”
