Hawaii’s four members of Congress and other officials welcomed the crew, along with local military families, after an overnight flight from Guam aboard a military transport jet. “We’re all very proud of you and the way you conducted yourselves this past two weeks,” said Adm. Thomas Fargo, the Pacific Fleet commander. “Welcome back and well done.” He read a letter from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who said: “You put your lives at risk so the citizens of a gratefiil nation can live their fives in peace and freedom.” In a telephone call to his mother, Osborn said the crew struggled to land the crippled Navy EP-3E surveillance plane safely after the two aircraft collided. “He said it took every bit of strength that he had. All the crew helped,” Diane Osborn of Norfolk, Neb., told MSNBC. “He was well trained by the Navy, and I thank God he gave him the strength to get it down.” Pierre Frenay, a pilot on the chartered plane that flew the 24 to Guam, told NBC News that Osborn told him the crew had considered bailing out of their plane after the collision. The crew faced IO a.m.-IO p.m. sessions to go over their ordeal, with an additional 14 hours on Friday. They were to return to their home base and a warmer welcoming celebration planned for Saturday at Whidbey Island, Wash., their home base. Family members were waiting on the mainland, but a friend of freed crew member Nick FOUNDERS/From 1A Mellos said seeing his fellow servicemen brought “a tremendous rush of relief.” Lt. Bill Ellis shook hands with Mellos as the freed officer boarded a bus taking the crew to hotel-like accommodations at nearby Pearl Harbor. The crew experienced two sunrises Thursday — one in captivity on a Chinese island and one in Hawaii. Their homeward flight from Guam brought them across the International Dateline. The long journey home ended the diplomatic standoff, with America’s official reaction to the Chinese demands for an apology going from expressions of “regret” to the word “sorry” during the weekend. Finally, a letter delivered to Chinese officials Wednesday said the United States was “very sorry” for the Chinese pilot’s death and for the U.S. plane’s landing in China without permission. The crew’s first contact with American soil was at Andersen Air Force Base on the U.S. territory of Guam. Some of the freed crew members leaned out bus windows to shake hands with onlookers. They made emotional phone calls to relatives and were given an American meal of meat and potatoes, with optional rice. “It gave me goosebumps. I just wanted to say, ’Welcome back. You guys are heroes,’” Guam Gov. Carl Gutierrez said. A few hours later, the crew’s C-17 Globe-master “Spirit of Bob Hope” left for Honolulu. Across the United States, relieved relatives and friends watched television broadcasts showing the crew leaving China and arriving in Guam. Mary Mercado, wife of aviation electronics technician Ramon Mercado, said her “heart was racing” as the plane took off from China’s Hainan Island, where the 24 Americans had been detained. the entire central Texas area. In addition to economic prosperity, the colony of 6,000 Germans also bought religion, organized public edu cation and other benefits. This year, the city of New Braunfels marks Founders’ Day today. In years past, the day has been celebrated with parades and events, usually every 25 years. No special events have been planned since the 150th anniversary. SUBDIVISION /From 1A Hornseth was one of the cochairs of a committee that examined subdivision regulations and recommended changes to address water availability, impervious cover and drainage. Hornseth said Thursday that the committee’s work essentially would be over if the court adopted the new drainage recommendations on Monday. The proposed drainage regulations were presented to commissioners in March. County Judge Danny Scheel has asked for public hearings on all of the Waterwise Growth Study Committee’s recommendations. The committee, made up of county and New Braunfels officials, water purveyors, developers and others, has been meeting since September. If the drainage rules are adopted, the committee will be disbanded. Hornseth called the rules' to be presented Monday a “two-pronged deal.” Developers will have to reserve space in subdivisions to allow water to drain through them and ensure that peak drainage of storm water to downstream properties is not increased. To meet the requirements will cause developers to spend additional money on engineering and building storm water retaining systems such as retention ponds, Hornseth said. The costs will be passed on to people who buy homes in Comal County in the future.

Lawmakers in Austin are developing two statewide health insurance plans to address public school employees’ needs. One plan, presented by the Senate, would focus on one statewide pool that all school districts could join. The state would contribute $1 billion and offer several different health insurance plans ranging from a minimum “cata-stophic” plan to more coverage similar to what other state employees receive. Only schools that choose to participate would get state funding. Districts would be required to maintain their current contribution costs toward benefits. The plan also would give health coverage to children of school employees whose families earn too much for Medicaid but not enough for private insurance. The House version would provide $1.5 billion a year and establish a mandatory poyl partially funded by the state for small or rural schools with less than 1,000 employees. New Braunfels School District has about 800 employees and Comal school district has more than 1,600 employees. Districts too large to participate in the pool would get $125 per employee per month for insurance or health related expenses. All districts could choose to sign up for the pool and each employee could get about $1,000 a year for additional health care costs for themselves or their families. The Senate Public Education Committee made headway on its plan Monday but to the dissatisfaction of state teachers groups who claim it does not meet their needs. Reaves said funding for either plan was a concern. Some lawmakers have discussed a possible state income tax to pay for it, he said, but he believes it is unnecessary. “We must exhaust looking at all revenue sources first,” he said. Comal school district officials were unavailable for comment for this story. (The Associated Press contributed to this story.) www.herald-zeitung.com AFTER HOURSWNIC !
