Ranger softball team ends season in state semifinal Bv Pere* Brown Sports Editor AUSTIN — In the end, there were tears. There were the open arms of families and friends, hands to shake and backs to pat. There was the sun setting west of downtown Austin and a scoreboard stating simply Weatherford 4, Smithson Valley 3. It took nine hot and dusty innings for a victor to emerge from Friday’s University Interscholastic League Class 4A state semifinal game at Austin’s Pleasant Valley Sportsplex. In the end, it was the Weatherford Kangaroos breaking the tie and the Smithson Valley Rangers who saw their dream season come to an end. “We’re a tough bunch of kids, and Weatherford is a tough bunch,’’ Smithson Valley coach Wayne Daigle said. “It was a great ball game, but someone had to lose it. We had our chances.’’ Weatherford fell in Saturday s state championship game 3-1 to Magnolia. Smithson Valley turned to its short game to break a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth inning.

According to a transcript of an anonymous voice mail message left May 11 at a local business, a group of citizens plans to write letters to four major newspapers in Texas WATSON    recommending peo- _ pie not come to New Braunfels if the city Chamber    doesn’t have money president    to clean the rivers by ypc^kt out    -hmc I. — Page7A At Press timc* chances were slim that proposed legislation allowing New Braunfels to use a portion of its bed tax revenue for river cleanup would pass through a House committee. The Ways and Means Committee conducted a public hearing on Senate Bill 1772 Wednesday but took no action on it. “There was considerable testimony against it,” committee clerk J.J. Garza said. The bill was pending and could have been voted out as late as midnight Saturday, Garza said. “I’m doubtful we’ll bring it up,” he said Saturday afternoon. Committee chair Rep. Rene Oliveira, D-Brownsville, said of the feedback he had received, 99 percent had been negative. But some New Braunfels citizens obviously favor the legislation. The voice mail message said: “I just wanted to let you know because of the statement your organization made last night at the New Braunfels City Council meeting — voting against the citizens of New Braunfels to keep the river clean. Uh ... Using our tax money now, the residents to clean the river, instead of the people who are trashing the rivers.
