and Ger ry Nolle have a thankless job They are jail cooks arid everyone knows jail food is the pits Or maybe it isnt The folks that eat the food day in and day out say the food at the Comal County Jail is just fine Working alone in a very small kitchen with just one old stove and four ovens the three women prepare up to 450 meals a day for the inmates And by all accounts they do a heck of a job of it too They take so much pride in their cooking they make sure it tastes good every meal every said Assistant Jail Administratqr Bill I have no problem with said Detention Officer Jimmy Ortiz who eats the jail food almost every day Of course the inmates are always saying they dont get enough but every time an inmate who has been here a while leaves he cant fit into his clothes They cant snap their The meate Reed Miller and Nolle pre pare are even more impressive when you figure the annual budget for feeding the inmates is or slightly more than per meal For breakfast Wednesday for example the inmates were served pancakes sausage chunks syrup margarine milk and coffee or tea At lunch the three were busy cooking 40 pounds of ham 50 pounds of yams and about 50 pounds of green beans to be served up on 103 plates for the inmates Then the food is rushed into food warmers and brought to the inmates in their day areas Dinner Wednesday was two hot dogs macaroni and cheese carrots fruit milk and coffee or tea The menu is prepared by Belinda Bazan a licensed dietitian at Inmates were not allowed to be inter viewed for this article but the jail staff is allowed to purchase the same meals for and many do Ortiz said the chicken Parmesan beef tips and tacos are all good but the days when ham burgerpotato casserole is served are the days he wishes he brought his own lunch Everything else is pretty good It is definitely worth the whwTJ far HeraldZeitung photos by JOHN HUSETH wnere else tor w Top photo County CQok Reed WOfks uetention utncer hard to prepare green beans for the days

locked up in with any of I wish you could talk to the Collins said I honestly think most of them would tell you the food is Corrections Officer Kermit Vetter said he normally brings his own lunch but When I do eat it Its always been good He singled out the King Ranch chicken and like every one else interviewed the chicken Parmesan as his favorites We eat it too and we wouldnt eat it if we didnt like Reed said the jail are not where they want to be and they dont have much to do but find things to complain about Some of them would still complain if you served them Tbones and baked potatoes Theyd like it but theyd still McBride being held in Comal County Jail By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer Kirk Wayne McBride 28 is being detained in the Comal County Jail after he was released from the Texas Department of Corrections last week According to Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer McBride was released on March 25 but no notification was given to the sheriffs office We got a call saying someone had seen him on the said Bremer He was arrested after officers stopped him on a motorcycle He was arrested for failure to maintain insurance and for not having a drivers license for a motorcycle according to Bremer Bremer said McBride was then served with a warrant for the indictments he is under in Comal County Those indictments are for the alleged aggravated sexual assault and kidnap ping of a New Braunfels woman The victim of the assault which occurred in 1990 said she was not aware McBride had been released until she received a call from the sheriffs office I wasnt even aware he was out of jail until she said She said she had been told by the prosecutor that McBride would not be paroled until 1995 One hour later I found out he was out on the she said The woman said normally a victim is notified if a suspect is being released however since McBrides conviction on the sexual assault case was overturned the woman was not noti fied I was astounded when I found out I am pleased that hes not on the she said McBride was released on mandatory super vision from the TDC Mandatory supervision requires that an inmate must be released if the time served and the inmates good time equal the length of the sentence When that occurs by law the TDC must release the inmate There is no decision to be made by the Board of Pardons and Paroles Bremer said they did not expect McBride to be eligible for parole until May He said the sheriffs office should have sent a teletype to the TDC requesting that McBride be detained However he said the sheriffs office had sent several other items of paperwork to TDC but it was later determined to be insufficient in order to hold McBride McBrides case involves a rape that alleged ly occurred in January 1990 He was convict ed of the rape in August 1990 He was sen tenced to four 99year terms The conviction was reversed in October 1992 Mayo clarifies position Seidel says he does not support sale of NBU By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff

than a percent return according to Seidel Seidel said Seguin receives million from its util ities and San Marcos receives million He said he wants New Braunfels to get a halfway decent return on its
