judge Monday night 7 at the Bulverde Library on Cougar Drive Much of the discussion will probably center on the proposed concrete batch site at the corner of the intersection of Hwy 28 and FM 1863 Ingram Readymix Inc of New Braunfels has applied to the Texas Natural Resources Conser vation Commission for an exemption to allow them to operate Precinct 2 County Commissioner Danny Proposed concrete plant has some Bulverde residents concerned for traffic water dust Scheel who will also attend the meeting said the public will as usual be able to ask questions of both he and County Judge Carter Castecl Scheel did not know if any representatives from Ingram Readymix would be available at the meeting I wrote a letter to the owners of the plant and suggested they have a meeting of their own with concerned said Scheel The TNRCC regulates pollution controls on resources such as water and air Ingram has applied for a Standard Exemption to the agency and would include the emission of

stand ready for livestock show By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer By late Saturday after noon hundreds of Comal County youth will have brought even greater numbers of their ani mals to the 27th Annual 4H and FFA County Junior Live stock Show for most the end ofjjjany months of work that can bring a great deal of satis faction Hun See twopage spe dreds of cial Pages 8A 9A young peo pie will participate just like Ryan McElroy and Angela Jenschke The two will be showing their stock hoping to sell and perhaps even make a profit Really its a said McElroy a senior at Smithson Val ley High as he prepared his steer and heifer thats cattle for city folks for the show arid sale my steer got pneumonia and I couldnt take him to Everything from cattle hogs sheep and rabbits to broilers and turkeys will be moving through the pens at the County Fairgrounds this week starting today For many this will mark the end as the animals are sold off to auction Some will keep theirs for breeding Programs like the county 4H and the Future Farmers of America in the local schools help with the learning process It is a process of learning a business that at times can be very frustrating and at others very rewarding They learn to budget their time and their money and they learn that there is more to raising livestock than putting feed in the trough You have to keep McElroy said There are vet bills feed bills and miscellaneous stuff feed pans halters show HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Smithson Valley student Megan Southard sheers a sheep in preparation for the Comal County Junior Livestock Show Jenschke raises hogs which she says is one of the more risky ven tures Many of the people showing their livestock this weekend either buy their animals after they are bom or raise them from birth 1 think I have more responsibili ty with both sows and boars I have to breed them make sure 1 breed them at the right anything can happen with a said Jen schke who said she had to get sev eral of her animals through various ailments Jenscke also a senior at SVHS and FFA member took one hog to the Houston Livestock Show and won Champion Chester Boar which she plans to keep for breed ing Others the market animals are sold at the shows and can some times draw big dollars if bidding is good or the place is high But sometimes the bidding can be biased and the judging inconsis tent Both say the Comal County show is good because of its system whereby points are awarded The top place winners accumulate points that turn into dollars but money from all the buyers includ ing the large bids is distributed among all the contestants I like the way the county show does McElroy I think its more more money that comes in the more everyone is going to For those selling animals the goal is to turn a profit But along the way they are supposed to leam the ups and downs of agribusiness which like any other can be tricky It not something youre going to get rich said Jenschke based on her experience which she has enjoyed I first started about seven years ago I really didnt know that much but now others come and ask me for And sometimes its hard to let some of the animals go especially knowing their fate and taking into account the constant attention given the many months Like that little sick piglet that stayed in the home and now has become a pet Nothings going to happen to she said Centennial capsule remains a mystery By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer The mystery of the missing time capsule sounds like the title of a book or a TV show But its real and its a part of the New Braunfels Sesquicen tennial The New Braunfels Centennial rolled around in 1945 But they post poned the celebration till 46 when the boys came home from the said Mary Ann Seidel As part of the festivities a time cap sule was buried and was supposed to be opened 50 years later What did the time capsule contain And where is it Thats a mystery Mary Ann and Rudy Seidel hope to solve this bicen tennial year There are theories Myra Lee Katt Fischer contacted said Seidel she thinks its somewhere in Landa A flagpole was situated where the train now runs and thats where Katt remembers the time capsule was buried Jeanette Streuer Felger has a differ ent memory that the time capsule was buried where the courthouse annex now stands Even if the location were narrowed down to the courthouse annex or the park how to figure out the exact spot It certainly wouldnt do to just start digging hole after hole There must be a clue in New Braun fels to help find that time capsule Sei del said In this town that preserves its history so well surely an account or a photograph exists to unlock the mys tery Maybe its in the photographs or documents in the Sophienburg Archives Maybe its waiting to be translated from the 1946 newspapers Maybe its in a personal diary or a let ter carefully preserved The search would be a Sesquicen tennial celebration in itself seeing moments of New Braunfels past come to life with each page Anyone who has information about the time capsule or wants to help with the detective work should contact Mary Ann Seidel at 6258151 More survivors of cancer counted today
