like this help address that situation They youth learn about self said Serold They may be at a critical point in their Serold said the youths involvement with a positive such as a school health program may help turn around some kids and teach them the value of hard work in addition to pumping some money into the local economy She said the kids usually spend the money they earn injpcal

not want to take the chance of the CISD getting caught in Board told to expect decision by Nov 1 the at scenario Board member Douglas Kirk men tioned that a letter has been filed by some citizens in the Canyon Lake area with the Attorney Generals office questioning language on the ballot of the bond election He reported that irregularities pos sibly existed on such items as giving legal notice 10
