By STEPHANIE FERGUSON Maws Editor Veterans Memorial Committee members kicked off a fundraising campaign today in Landa Park, standing in a place where a monument honoring veterans will soon be located. “Today is the day that marks the official kick off of our fundraising,” said retired Maj. Fred Lingner, chairman of the Veterans Memorial Committee. At the ceremony were a number of dignitaries including New Braunfels Mayor Amo Becker and Council members Eddie Temple, James Good-bread, and Clinton Brandt. Lingner honored retired former astronaut Brig. Gen. Charles M. Duke; retired Maj. Jack Ilfrey, U.S. Army Air Corps; and Staff Sgt. Diane Luna of the Army Reserves. Duke, who lives in Comal County, said he was very honored to be recognized. “It’s a great honor," Duke said. “I’m just delighted that this monument will be constructed in honor of the veterans and people who served so courageously in all of the wars.” In January, New Braunfels City Council gave the group approval to construct a monument in Landa Park honoring the veterans of Comal County.

CARPET CLEANING Anilin cumin cm ii* SERVICES MUH StnrMf AW WiCttmfr Ant Putt WI By DANA OVERSTREET City Editor Extension Agent Joe Taylor is excited about taking part in his first Junior Livestock Show and Sale in Comal County. "There is a lot of enthusiasm shown on the part of the kids,” Taylor said. "This is a great opportunity for me to get to have all the kids in one group and meet them all. “It’s a different level of competition here than in South Texas,” said Taylor, who came here from Live Oak. "The quality is better. We have some really good hog breeders and lamb breeders and there is a good availability of steers here.” Taylor's 9-year-old son Justin is a 4-H member in Comal County and he is showing a steer and three hogs this year. In Live Oak, Justin raised steers, lambs, hogs, rabbits and sheep. His younger brother Jeff, 7, will be showing a couple of steers and hogs next year, Taylor said, adding that Jeff will be at the Comal County Fairgrounds helping his brother get the hogs brushed. Taylor’s wife Gail also has been preparing for this Youth Show. “She’s involved with these projects,’’ Taylor said. “She does a lot of the work, washing and grooming. She takes over when I’m gone. I take care of everyone else’s animals and she takes care of ours.” Hog judging gets under way this afternoon at the 23rd annual Comal County Junior Livestock Show and Sale. Breeding Swine judging starts at 2 pjn., followed by Market Hogs and Showmanship at 4 pjn. Lambs and steers are arriving at the fairgrounds today until 7 p.m. Expected to compete are approximately 108 lambs. Forty-two steers are bolded to the fairgrounds. Market Lamb and Showmanship judging will be at 8 ajn. Friday. Judging of Market Steen is expected to start at 1:30 pjn. Friday, followed by Breeding Cattle and Showmanship. Sixty pens of rabbits (three to a pen) are expected to arrive tonight from 4 to 7 pjn. and poultry (28 turkeys and 109 pens of broilers) arrive from 3 to 7 pjn. They’ll be judged Friday beginning at 8 ajn. The New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung will have complete results of the winners and their photographs in Sunday’s edition. Waste.

After the committee hearing Wednesday the bills were referred to a subcommittee. Zaffirini said her strategy at this point is three-fold — to pursue the passage of the three bills she is sponsoring, pursue the omnibus bill, or merge her bill with other senator’s bills. “We will see to what extent we can duplicate my bills in that (omnibus) bill and then later on make the decision about whether we should pursue independent passage or simply become a part of that bill,” Zaffirini said. “It is a broader bill that would have statewide implications and bring together the local concerns expressed in different parts of the state.” Some of the members of the Natural Resources Committee include: Senators Bill Sims, chairman; Carlos Truan, vice chairman; Kenneth Arm-brister, Gonzalo Barrientos, JJS. “Buster” Brown, Steven Carriker, Eddie Lucio Jr., and Judith Zaffirini. 5X7 1.99 HEB V FOODS•DRUGS Super Set 5.99* Have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny Sat.
