athletic directors said a new policy would not likely form in response to the Supreme Courts recent ruling allowing drug testing of athletes in public schools The courts decision came this week in a 63 vote that gave schools the right to carry out random drug testing saying that students who participate in sports are open to such scrutiny New Braunfels Athletic Director Tim Kings bury said the school district does not have a ran dom drug testing policy for athletes and the issue has not been formally discussed by district officials He said he did not believe the recent court decision would have an impact locally It just doesnt seem like something we would need to implement in our Kingsbury said First of all it would single out athletes and that couldbe seen as unfair to select one group Why not also test students who are not involved in sports or students in other extracurricular activities like band or debate I think students who are involved in extra curricular activities tend to be the ones least likely get involved with The other aspect is that drug testing would be prohibitive as far as cost is he added Smithson Valley Athletic Director Larry Hill said he has not discussed the drug testing issue with Comal Independent School District offi cials but said he does not foresee it becoming policy in the near future If a kid has a drug problem then we would want to do whatever we could to help him or Hill said But the biggest drawback with random drug testing is that it does not seem economically feasible I dont know of any school district in the state that has drug testing or that cpuld afford Hill added that the courts ruling unfairly tar gets athletes but that it was not unusual because athletes already are expected to meet higher demands under the nopass noplay law Canyon Athletic Director Larry Nowotny said drug testing could be useful in certain cas es but he would be against a random testing pol icy if it was not a studentwide policy It has been studied in the past and there are instances where it would be appropriate but as a general policy for athletes it is not easy to do because of costs and legal ramifica Nowotny said The drug testing issue stemmed from an Ore gon school districts policy that required students who wanted to participate in interscholastic athletics to provide urine samples under moni tored conditions at school The program applied to all students whether suspected of drug use or not Speaking for the court majority Justice Antonin Scalia defend ed the ruling saying school sports are not for the bashful Students who voluntarily participate in school athletics have reason to expect intru sions upon normal rights and privileges includ ing NB AllStars split series with Yoakum AL 10yearold boys play for little league title tonight From staff reports GONZALES The New Braunfels American Little League AllStars are one game away from taking the District 31 title in the 10yearold boys division On the verge of elimination Thursday the NB AllStars came back to win the second game of a doubleheader against Yoakum forcing a show down for the title tonight The game starts at 7 in Gonzales NB AllStar Coach Michael Garrott said the title will likely come down to pitching I think whoever comes out with a strong per formance at the mound will win Garrott said Both teams have to be a bit tired These kids have played seven games in less than two weeks They will have to dig deep one more The NB AllStars have come back from deficits to win four of their seven games so far in the tour nament On Thursday Yoakum edged the NB AllStars in a seveninning game that had been delayed by rain The team played to a 77 tie after five innings on Wednesday when officials halted play The game resumed with Yoakum at

gone on the mid to low er Texas Thats a popular question among saltwater anglers We havent seen a good flounder run in several said Captain John Woolen Woolen who guides fishermen from Cor pus Christi to the land cul says I fished over day last year and caughl only one There are many other guides who didnt catch As for me I managed to calch only one last year In years past flounder were plenti ful and easy to catch either with a flounder gig at night or on a rod and reel But now its a rare occurrence to even see a flounder on the mid to lower coast 1 asked over a dozen longtime fishing guides for their opinion on where the flounder are and heres some of what they said Too much harvesting in years past has killed the flounder Commercial fishermen have been allowed to overharvest them Flounder are extremely vulnerable in the mid to lower coast because the water is normally clear enough and shallow enough to gig them The upper coast still has a great flounder population because of three factors very little commercial fishing deeper water offcolored waler I have been told that the Gulf Coast Con servation Association GCCA is targeting flounder restocking in the near future much the same as they did trout and redfish Hopefully their efforts along with those from the Texas Parks and Wildlife will bring our flounder population back Theres no question that their work on trout and redfish has been successful Saltwater fishing for them is better now than it has been in 20 years But for now if youre looking for some good flounder action my suggestion is to try the upper coast specifically Sabine Lake It is not uncommon for anglers to catch easy lim its year round Keith Warren is the host of The Texas Angler television show which broadcasts statewide Catch The Texas Angler

TORONTO AP No one made a big deal about Joe Smith when he first got to Maryland in 1993 Sure he had good size and an impres sive physique but the top prep player that year from his home state of Virginia was a guy named Jerry Stackhouse who went to play for Dean Smith along with a highly touted big man Rasheed Wallace In two seasons with the Terrapins Smith blossomed and on Wednesday night he became the lop pick in the NBA draft ahead of the two Tar Heel sophomores When 1 got to Maryland no one expected me to have as successful a season as 1 Smith said alter the Warriors made him only the third sophomore ever selected first I came out and surprised everybody even myself My confidence just skyrocket ed from Game 1 and it never went Smith who at 6foot10 played cen ter in college but will
