Interstate 35. Someone stole a spotting scope and a tripod worth an estimated $750 from the enclosed bed of the truck. ► Intoxication A 65-year-old Canyon Lake area man was arrested about 1 p.m. Tuesday at Cypress Bend Park off Peace Avenue after New Braunfels Police Department officers received a report he was allegedly indecently exposing himself. He was booked into the Comal County Jail on $150 bond for public intoxication. ►Assault A 25-year-old woman allegedly was assaulted by a 35-year-old New Braunfels man about 7 p.m. Tuesday in the 500 block of Ventura. The man allegedly punched the woman in the face. He was booked into the Comal County Jail on $1,000 bond for assault. ► Evacuation More than 50 employees were evacuated about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday from Owens Corning, 1851 Seguin Ave., after employees detected fumes that smelled like a possible electrical fire. New Braunfels Fire and Rescue personnel searched the building but found nothing. The smell might have originated from roof repair work fumes that were sucked in through the building’s air conditioning system, fire and rescue personnel said.

Casten Ave. www.herald-zeitung.com From Staff Reports Comal Independent School District has received a $ 150,000 state grant for a bilingual program that will help promote literacy among grade school students by involving their parents in their education. The Texas Education Agency awarded the School and Home Collaborative for Reading Excellence grant for use at Frazier Elementary and Goodwin Primary schools next academic year. Project SCORE is designed to ensure that every child is a proficient reader by the end of fourth grade. “The project is an early literacy intervention program,” said Carol Keller, CISD’s grants coordinator. The courses, offered in both English and Spanish, will aggressively address reading skills; empower teachers with the best in research, training and educational resources; enable parents and community members to create a supportive learning environment; and lead at-risk students on the path to reading success. Keller said families would be able to use the Frazier Elementary library two evenings per month, and the Reading at Home program will be used to guide parents in questioning strategies that improve student-reading skills. “We’re looking forward to this grant because it will provide more staff development for our teachers and more time with our parents as we work to improve reading and language skills,” said Sid Ridgway, Frazier’s principal. “This grant really encourages parents to be reading partners with their children,” said Goodwin principal Marlene Moore. “Parents need to understand the reading process and realize that they are their child’s best teacher.” Goodwin and Frazier teachers will receive professional development in three integrated curriculum strands — decoding, reading, comprehension and written expression.

Tile increase in water pressure could rise significantly in some instances which may affect customers’ water systems inside and outside their homes. “ It will be a good idea to monitor your water system for any changes in operation such as adjusting sprinkler heads and timers to compensate for the increased pressure,” suggests NBU Water Systems Manager Wesley Hamff.
