Flores talks to the crowd gathered for the memo rial dedication Saturday at Rockhill Gospel Church County judge pitches indoor pool proposal By DENISE DZIUK KNIGHT Staff Writer The Comal Independent School Dis trict board of trustees got its first glimpse Thursday of a study calling for a new indoor swimming pool for which the district will be asked to help pay if plans move forward Comal County Road Engineer Tom Hornseth who chaired the committee studying the issue presented the report He told trustees there was a need both in CISD and the county as a whole for an indoor swimming facility that would offer opportunities for physical edu cation fitness extra curricular activi ties recreation and instruction The cost to build the facility was projected at million plus operational costs The Northside Independent School District facility studied by the com mittee requires an operating budget of above revenues If there was a joint effort between the city county and school districts I feel those costs could be balanced fair ly Hornseth said Although a location has not been proposed County Judge Carter Cas teel said the county already had been offered land along Interstate 35 and the county also owned an adequate amount of land at the road department Casteel said county commissioners would likely call for the bond election and service the debt She said if the city and school districts participated by sharing operational costs it would cost each about each year for 20 years Once the debt was paid off the county could share the opera tional costs she said I dont know if it will work but thats what Im thinking Cas teel said I hope you are interested and 1 hope you will join with us in Turn to Pool Page 2A Parents need not fear about hepatitisA By DENISE DZIUK KNIGHT

share a McWilliams said like other conta gious viruses it was not unusual for sporadic cases to pop up in a school district and her department was not alarmed by the two cases It just kind of bounces around and we see it more often in the younger grades than the older she said Tate said letters were sent home with classmates when the first case was confirmed When the second diagnosis was made letters went home with classmates and all stu dents in the school The letter out lined the symptoms and stressed the important of good hygiene We do the same thing every she said Were just doing every
