sight February brings end of cedar fever By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer Theres good news for allergy sufferers The mountain cedar season which has affected many this year is com ing to an end Dr Donald Kennady of New Braunfels said the mountain cedar season is just about He said typ ically the pollen season for mountain cedar in the New Braunfels area runs from midDecember to the end of Jan uary which means relief should be in sight for many We should be getting to the end of the season and the amount of pollen in the air should start said Kennady Kennady said he believes the orange pollen which is released from the male trees has affected more people this year He said it has been made worse by other allergens The immune system is weakened due to reactions to oth er allergens such as molds making it more sensitive to cedar pollen he said Some people have been allergic to mountain cedar this season that have never been affected said Kennady He said there are now three antihistamines available in prescription that work well and do not create drowsi He said these are Seldane Hismanal and Claritin Some of these have been combined with a deconges tant However he said a Ibt of the overthecounter med ications are good and sufferers just need to find one that works for them He also added that if allergies are really bad a person may want to consider seeing a doctor about vaccines Kennady also added that there are a few steps a person can take to ease allergies like cleaning often and changing air filters frequently New office puts smile on IPs face By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer BULVERDE is now in session in Bulverde as Justice of the Peace Fred Stewart holds court in the recently completed Precinct building Judge Stewart and clerks Donna Allen and Kay Byrd moved into the new building almost a week ago The new JP building is located a few yards from the old facility which had been used for 17 years in downtown Bulverde I like it very Stewart said Our clerks have more room we have plenty of parking space it is more convenient for the public to transact legal business and there is plenty of room for everyone during court The 50 foot x 50 foot steel pre fabricated building has a waiting area a large clerks office protect ed by a large teller window a break room a court room a storage room for records judges office an office for County Fire Marshall Milton Willmann and an office for Constable Jim Hanley if he desires to use it Byrd said the facility gives her the opportunity to get more work done 1 love the Byrd said Having the jury room means we will not have to move out when court is in session There will not be that much noise or confusion in this In the old 31 x 20 facility which is still located next to the Bulverde Bakery there was limited space The courtroom was crowded and there was not much space for jury trials When the jury deliberated it had to go into the clerks room forcing both Allen and Byrd to stop their work and go outside with the judge and the attorneys Court records and documents were stored and crammed in shelves With the new storage room Allen said and the county provid ing a regular maintenance person to take care of the building it is much Having the jury room means we will not have to move out when court is in Kay Byrd JP office worker easier to store current records and take the old ones to the Comal County Courthouse We now have a regular mainte nance person sending the files to New Braunfels every week instead of once every two Allen said It is a lot for Judge Stewart to take the records into New Braunfels himself Now we are able to clear a lot of old records from the build Security is also another advan tage the new facility has Allen said Since we have the teller win dow for legal transactions we will have more Allen said We have the door between the lobby and the clerks area locked and we will unlock it to allow peo ple to see Judge Stewart especially likes the new court room since it has a new wood varnish bench a witness stand and 30 chairs which is more space than the old facility held and tables for both the defense and prosecution Stewart said a jury box will also be added pretty soon The new building has central and heat making it more com fortable for the staff and the judge to work in This means there will be no more noisy air conditioners or heaters Stewart
