Caring for Children Craig Jeffries, Dallas director of the Caring Foundation for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, presented the Comal County Caring for Children Program with a check of $5,304 at Thursday’s Comal County Commissioners Court meeting. Jack Bombers, chairman of the local Caring for Children Program committee, received the donation and picked up additional donations from the commissioners who were present.

Wallace emphasized that the group has “no vendetta” against Arnold and Brandt, adding that if the recall succeeds, the group might choose two more council members for a second recall, “depending on the lime schedule ” Killeen Continued from Fog* 1 Media representatives began to call later thai afternoon, bul the real media crash started the next morning. Massey's assistant answered phone calls constantly that morning, not even having time to log the calls, he said. Births Massey said the incident affected him to deeply that he could not have made such a presentation until a few days ago. when he finally was able to read some of the many newspaper articles published. “I think all of us in Killeen have gained a new perspective on life itself and on our jobs, especially because so many people in our district were affected by this.” he said. By LAURY ROWE m rn wUfi wni$f Area pet owners now face tougher restrictions on animals found to be vicious after the Comal County Commissioners Court approved new rules Thursday responding to an increase in animal attacks. Under the new Vicious Animal Order, a pet owner who learns from the county that his or her animal is dangerous has 30 days to register it with the county, restrain it in an enclosure, and show liability insurance coverage of at least $100,000 to cover damages from an attack. “What this order is going to do is give us a little bit more legal leeway,” said animal control officer David Young. Previously, county regulations required that an animal had to bite two people before county animal control officers could act on a complaint against it. Young said. Under the new rules, county officials will act on a single legitimate complaint, and if the owner does not meet the new requirements within 30 days, they will seize the animal. If the owner still does not meet the requirements after three days, the animal is destroyed. The previous penalty for not controlling a dangerous animal was typically a fine, but “it got to the point where people were more willing to just go out and pay these fines than to do something about their animal,” said County Attorney Nathan Rhein-lander. “We just felt like we had our hands tied in dealing with these dangerous animals.” Young said the county's animal control officers have seen a rise of roughly 50 percent in the number of animal complaints this year. He said they received 62 calls about bites in 1990, and 71 so far for 1991. "I just can't give you a good, logical explanation why we're seeing an increase in the number of animal bites,” he said. Total service calls numbered about 1,300 calls last year, including 600 for dogs and 450 for eau. So far this year, they have already received about 1,400 calls, Young said. “The Canyon Lake area seems to be the number one spot for these types of occurrences," he said, explaining that residents sometimes move from the city and expect that their pet can run free in a rural area. He added that another hot spot is Rainbow Drive, where unwanted animals and litters are often dumped in abandoned houses. “I don't know why they pick Rainbow Drive of all places. I guess it's just quick access off (Texas) 46.” Young said the new rules were in effect Thursday, with their first application involving a couple of German shepherds at Canyon Lake that threatened joggers and allegedly bit at least one person. The new animal rules are essentially an adoption of a statute for stricter controls passed by the Legislature on September I, but they include some additions from the county. The Commissioner* Court also authorized the Animal Control program's request to local veterinarians for cheaper animal tending, boarding, euthanasia and disposal services. The county currently pays $6 per day and $6 per euthanasia for each animal. The animal control program is •ending bids to 19 vendors and will consider any more cost-effective offer, Young said. Among the fund requirements approved by the commissioners Thursday was $1,805 for the boarding, care, and euthanizing of aumail. County Judge Caner Casteel said the coun would not consider building and operating its own animal shelter until it has closely examined all of the expenses and responsibilities involved. Precinct 4 Commissioner Morris "Moe” Schwab, who was not present a Thursday's meeting, had suggested last week that the option could save the county thousands of dollvs in the longrun. In other business Friday, the court upgraded the job descriptions and pay ranges of two positions in the Sheriff! Department and Jail. The position of inmate supervisor was upgraded from Group 14 to 17, and the executive assistant position in the Sheriff's Department was increased from Group 16 to 18. The job requisites for inmate supervisor now includes an associate degree and five years of law enforce ment with two years supervisory experience, whereas before it required only high school and two years of jail experience. The req requirements for executive assistant were increased from 60 semester hours in college to a bachelor's degree. Experience in computers and personnel was also added to the requirements. \ CASH FOR JT Real Estate Mortgages Full or partial purchases. First liens, second liens. Closing within 48 hours.
