hav ing no kids affiliated with They didnt want the last bond to pass for tax But the onslaught of younger families with kids into the Canyon Lake area is drastically diluting this population and will fill the new Canyon Lake high elementary and even a new middle school to a future overflowing capacity similar to which started off The 1997 bond failed because the voters believed the new high school would be built in Bulverde instead of Canyon outraging Canyon Lake who felt shafted by the Proposition 3 is not Proposition 2 was explained many times before the Voters wanted and needed the new high school near FarmtoMarket Road 484 and FM They are getting what they want and No revote is By Bulverde will then need and get a new high Four two superintendents and a hired taxpaid consultant say we need the new Canyon Lake high I I cant believe a board trustee still wants SVHS to continue squirming like maggots at overcrowed SVHS while he awaits a revote two years down the is his secret agenda

purpose and patri otism Lets not lose our enthusiasm for doing our utmost to eradicate the serious threat of terrorism that old eternal vigilance is the price of freedom was never Lets all Republican and Independents parents and grandparents work together and combine our efforts to overcome this It is an attempt to wipe out the very freedom of choice that makes America unique among Persons who

get through this terrible Dont ever forget that much blood has been shed to give us these privileges and give meaning to our flag Old God has truly blessed America lets give him reason to continue Frances Shannon Spring Branch Camp Comal deal Will hurt local family Dear Editor In reference to your story on 16 regarding the council going into closed session to discuss a waste water treatment plant and Camp Comal I first want to say that some ones lack of responsibility in men tioning names to the press without even considering notifying the party involved is I dont know whether it was the reporters lack of professional integrity to get the story right he did not even spell the name This is a family being displaced in this action and they got to read about it in the newspaper I dont think I read anywhere in this article what it it took to make this property what it The Findleys took a property waist high in house with windows all broken and electrical utilities condemned by the city and envisioned the perfect envi ronment to raise a family and turned it into a beautiful They have worked so many hard houis and sacrificed so much during the past eight years and endured living in the home throughout an extensive remodel and update just barely a year Is a ballfield or wastewater plant worth putting this family in this situtation There is no amount of money that can replace what these people have built for themselves and their but the city decided in closed door session that this was the right thing to I hope they are proud of Janice Allen New Braunfels Flying insecurities reveal new reality To the Editor As a veteran business traveler who flies I finally faced the reality of having to get back on an airplane Given the fact that the air lines are in such I considered it my patriotic duty to get back into the sky as soon as What a sad After going through the increased scrutiny at the security I walked into a terminal filled with extremely nervous busi ness Like these folks absolutely must fly to perform their Their along with the flight said exactly what I was thinking it was only dumb luck that kept uc Ojlcthe illfated While I doiitwan to I would like people to know that even with the current level of increased it is still possible to get a knife of some sort on a I wont go into the details for obvious but I was allowed to pass through a checkpoint at a large airport with much more metal on my person than a lousy box The metal detector didnt make a All this security is designed to give people a sense of but until I see a meaningful solution like impenetrable cockpit doors and sky my family is staying out of the Its just not worth the Having troops in the airport might make people feel more but its after the door to the plane is closed that we need the most protec While I know that its not political ly correct to do racial you can be sure that everyone who is fly ing right now is scanning his or her flight for young males who look remotely Middle While its sad that this is we really have no other alternative at this Lets hope that the government and airlines can restore trust in the system quickly and give our law abiding citizens of all races the confi dence to fly Duane Neel New Braunfels America reacts to tragic events of On our lives wore changed We woke up that morning thinking everything was and all was Now it is
