fees Texans paid for auto insurance said Hemby The task force encompasses Comal Bastrop Bell Blanco Burnett Cald well Colorado Fayett Hays Lee Llano Milam Travis and Williamson counties No officer is assigned to hard said Hemby An interlocal agreement between the officers gives each officer equal pow er within the 14county area an under standing that was limited to the scope of task force operations said Hemby Some sheriffs in less populous coun ties were not sure about the city boys coming into their said Hemby but it took only a little while for the task force members to grow comfortable with one another Together officers learned the tricks of the auto theft trade and took that knowledge to their counties Hemby said Auto theft continues to be a concern in Comal County according to the Comal County Sheriffs Office and the New Braunfels Police Department Stolen vehicles and chop shops where car thieves take a car to be dis mantled and sold for parts or disguised to

state to implement a statewide vehicle registration pro gram designed to reduce auto theft during nighttime program helps vehicle owners who normally do not use their vehicle between 1 and 5 Owners can sign an agreement allowing peace officers to verify own ership if they find the vehicle being driven during Help End Auto Theft hours By signing a form it gives a police man authority to stop the car if it is out after I said Michael Hemby of the Travis County Sheriffs Office The advantage of the program is that officers throughout the state have immediate access to data Even if the thief has removed the decal the officer will know the vehicle is registered in Owners participating in the program register for a fouryear period at a cost of per vehicle A decal then is placed on the back window of the vehi cle The decal authorizes law enforce ment to stop the automobile between 1 and 5 Owners might extend additional authority at the time of registration to have the vehicle stopped for

Editor AUSTIN New Braunfels play off run came to a halt in the Class 5A semifinals Friday at the Burger Center but not without a memorable fight The Unicorns 2711 were elimi nated by Houston Cypress Creek 39 1 155 156 in a match which was arguably a bit closer than the final score indicated They didnt give NBHS coach Phyllis Fowler said They showed a lot of pride and played with a lot of heart They gave it everything they had Cy Creek jumped out to a 62 lead in the first game but junior Jessica Barney closed the gap to just two points with consecutive aces But that was the closest the Unicorns would get as the Cougars upped their lead to 84 and later went on a fourpoint run to lead 125 New Braunfels then watched as the Cougars got the final three points for the win Barney served to opea the second game and things looked up for the Unicorns who took a quick 30 lead Fowler said she challenged the Uni corns to take control of the match after the first game I told them we needed to keep Cy Creek on the defense a little she said When we hit the ball at them we had a lot of kills but we were on defense too much during the first game We definitely needed to block more balls We just didnt block and they hit very Cy Creek halted the early New Braunfels run and took a 43 lead after getting a sideout The Unicorns tied the game at 44 but the Cougars quickly regained serve and reeled off two points for a 64 lead they would never relinquish Kristy Rhodes a 6foot senior led Cy Creek in kills with nine and tied for the team lead in digs seven and blocks The Cougars also had two other players taller than six feet and that advantage was evident up at the net Fowler said They were pretty she said We couldnt stop and we knew that was the one player we needed to stop We didnt get our hands on a lot of balls at the Yvette Villanueva led the Unicorns at the net with four blocks Kellye Rogers had eight kills and Barney chipped in for 22 assists Cy Creek increased its lead to 84 and appeared ready to put the Uni corns away but Villanueva came up with a big block for a sideout That gave New Braunfels a chance to climb back into the match but the Cougars made several key stops down the stretch Fowler said while Cy Creek didnt necessarily dominate on its serve it made a big difference in the outcome of the match Thats where we played a little bit she said We can passserve better
