Kolb was elected to the post in 2000. Kolb said the number of cases adjudicated by the attorney’s office have increased significantly since she took office in January 2001. She noted her strong relationship with Guadalupe County law enforcement. She has successfully sought state grant money to fund the hir- • ing of a criminal investigator for County Attorney’s Office and used proceeds from the “Hot Check Fund" and state money to fund Assistant County Attorney and support staff salaries, she said. “When I first sought the office of County Attorney, I promised the citizens of Guadalupe County that I would make ethics and integrity the hallmark of my office," Kolb said. “I am proud to report that we have done just that." TEXAS SAN ANTONIO STUDY: CHILDREN UNDER 2 EATING FRIES, DRINKING SODA — Even before their second birthday, many American children are developing the same bad eating habits that plague the nation’s adults — too much fat, sugar and salt and too few fruits and vegetables. A new study of more than 3,000 youngsters found significant numbers of infants and toddlers are downing french fries, pizza, candy and soda. Children aged I to 2 years require about 930 calories per day, but the study found that the median intake for that age group is 1,220 calories, — an excess of nearly 30 percent. For those 7 months to 11 months old, the daily caloric surplus was about 20 percent. “By 24 months, patterns look Keep up with all your local news and sports.

Black Hawk chopper crash injures one soldier in Iraq TfKRIT, Iraq (AP) — Guerrillas fired small arms and rocket-propelled grenades at a U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopter after it came down Saturday in a field nearHkrit, wounding one soldier and causing the craft to explode in flames and spew a column of black smoke, the U.S. military said. Also, near the flashpoint city of Fallujah, three civilians were killed and two wounded when their convoy came under fire. An American engineer and an Iraqi security guard said U.S. hoops shot at their vehicles, but the military denied that. Amid the ongoing violence, U.S military officials prepared for the holy fasting month of Ramadan,, which begins in Iraq on Monday. For weeks, chaplains have been startlingly similar to some of the problematic American dietary patterns," said an overview of the Feeding Infants & Toddlers Study, commissioned by baby-food maker Gerber Products Co. Recent research has found that roughly one in every five Americans is now considered obese, double the rate in the mid-1980s. HOUSTON POUCE INVESTIGATE REPORT INVOLVING ROCKETS PLAYER GRIFFIN — Police were investigating a report Saturday that suspended Houston Rockets forward Eddie Griffin beat up and shot at a woman at his home sometime before dawn. Police spokesman Alvin Wright said no warrant had been issued for Griffin's arrest. He said police have been unable to locate Griffin and that they "just want him to give us a statement." "Its his word against hers and we can’t find him,” Wright said. "Nobody saw bim do anything. There are no witnesses.” Joann Romero, 21, alleged in a call to police early Saturday that Griffin had punched her and shot at her, Wright said. She was treated at a hospital for facial injuries, he said. Wright said officers found two training troops to be sensitive to On Saturday, U.S. forces reopened a major bridge over the Tigris River to ease transportation in the capital, Baghdad. An American military brass band with a tuba played as the bridge was inaugurated. In the incident three SUVs of the European Landmine Solutions, a British-based private contractor, were hit by gunfire, according to an American engineer with the firm, David Rasmussen, who was hospitalized with wounds. Asked where the shots came from, Rasmussen replied: “from the USA." The Iraqi security guard traveling with the convoy, Laith Yousef, gave the same account. shell casings and blood at Griffin’s home after a male identifying himself as Griffin called police and said somebody had broken into his house. * NATION RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES FORCE EVACUATIONS — A 13,000-acre wildfire in the San Bernardino National Forest jumped down a hillside into an area of $1 million homes Saturday, burning two homes and forcing hundreds of people to flee. Smoke and dust kicked up by winds cut visibility to about a dozen yards and flames 30 feet high cast an eerie, orange-red tinge over the af,ca* Interstate 210 remained closed.    t The fire 30 miles east of Los Angeles was the largest of a half-dozen burning throughout Southern (California. Much of the region was under a “red flag" alert because of hot, dry weather and blustery Santa Ana winds that forecasters predicted could reach up to 60 mph at times in canyons. Since it began Tuesday, the fire in the foothills of San Bernardino County has damaged or destroyed seven homes, said Bill Peters, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry. About 1,700 people had been evacuated, according to county sheriff’s spokeswoman Sandy Fatland. WASHINGTON PROTESTERS GATHER ON BOTH COASTS TO CONDEMN WAR - To chants of “Impeach Bush,” thousands of anti-war protesters rallied in the nation’s capital Saturday and delivered a scathing critique of President Bush and his Iraq policy. Demanding an end to the U.S.-led occupation and the quick return of American troops, the demonstrators gathered on a sunny fall day at the Washington Monument to listen to speeches and songs of peace. One man’s small cardboard sign gave his summing-up of the day: “This administration does not represent me,” it said in black capital letters typewritten on white paper. The Rev. Al Sharpton, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, exhorted the crowd not to be content with the gradual withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq. “Don’t give bush $87 billion, don’t give him 87 cents, give our troops a ride home,” Sharpton said to loud cheers from the crowd. Hundreds of anti-war protesters also took to sun-drenched streets in San Francisco. WASHINGTON SEAL WIVES, WIDOWS LAUNCH FUND-RAISING TRIP — Wives and widows of nine men from Navy special operations launched a boat tour Friday to call attention to their husbands’ sacrifices and raise money for other families. Calling themselves SEAL Wives Against Terrorism (SAVAT.), they left midday from a Potomac River marina across the street from the Pentagon for a 300-nautical mile trip to New York. Stops are planned in two other cities and money raised will go to an existing Navy welfare fund, they said. Three are widows who lost their husbands in the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns and the rest are wives of active-duty or retired SEALS, among the military’s secretive specie forces.
