from the Ducks annual held Nov 15 raised which will be directed toward the preservation of duck habi tats and wetlands through the Ducks Unlim ited organization The chapters goal this year was Cook said It was a lot of hard work by everyone on the said Cook It was a real team effort It took some organization arid follow through that is what made it all hap pen Also the businesses and members of the community who donated and contributed items for the auction and to putting on the auc tion itself was just as important We had some really fine items that were auctioned off It was a very successful event for Approximately 231 local Ducks Unlimited members attended the November which was held at the Knights of Columbus Hall for the first time this year The evening was highlighted by a special presentation from the local chapter of a set of hunting knives made by local craftsman John ny Stout The knives were later presented to the sons of the late Tom Bluntzer Samuell and Nolan Bluntzer had been a member of the local chapter since it began and had served as emcee of the banquet and auction each year The knives had the names of Samuell and Nolan inscribed on them In a move to streamline city council though it meets only twice a month for a few hours at a council has put into place a special procedure to help expedite meetings that begin at Actually council members say utilizing a consent agen da will give citizens more time for comment during coun cil meetings The consent agenda used at Mondays meeting con solidates several items together for one vote The items are generally considered to be routine and non controversial The items put on the consent agenda are matters in which the council feels need no further expla nation Typically items up for a third vote will also be put on the list should there be enough items to form a consent agenda One or two items would not constitute enough for a consent agenda and would each get individual votes The merger of several items into one vote should help expedite the meet ing Veronica Sarkozi city secre tary said 31 does kind ofspeed the meeting along by up voting for every she said The donthaye to take a motion or jcall a Sarkozi who takes the minutes for each council meeting said the city had discussed the consent agenda for several years but just never implemented the procedure For several area cities like San Antonio and Seguin the consent agenda is something they have been using for years I think it is a real good said City Manager Mike Shands It will give them council members more time to have more discussion about other One stipulation in the consent agenda will allow a coun cil member to pull an item off the merged list if they believe the item demands more discussion or revision One of the things it does is if they take something off the consent agenda it draws immediate attention to the Shands said Council members seemed to have accepted the new pro cedure without any major reservations If this is a way we can get some items out quicker then Im all for Council member Mary Serold said The most important thing about the consent agenda was that items could be pulled off

Braunfels Independent School District are high according to school officials but all must wait to see if this is an indicator for a heavy turnout Saturday We had our highest day by tar said Assistant Superintendent Lonnie Curtis who said 362 votes had already been cast approaching a goal of 400 We should exceed that by Today marks the final day of voting as polls are open ftom 8 am to 5 pjn at the Education Center Because voting laws have been loosened many now take antage of early voting where they do not have to adhere to precinct or district restrictions as they dp on election day Predicting total election turnout thus becomei more difficult Wedbe lucky to get around 20 percent said Curtis It would be a big total for In the August school trustee elections early vot ing produced about 400 ballots but total voter turnout amounted to about eight percent of the dis tricts voters Curtis said what actually happens is that a small percentage of voters decide the outcome of elec tions In this case the election would include new facilities and repairs in the district and a 05 cent per increase the first year in taxes School taxes generally account for the bulk of property tax bills That 15 percent are making decisions for 85 per cent that dont come he said Its sort of like we take it voting for granted Ejectionday polli will be open from 7 to 7 pjn Votcn must cost ballon in their
