Inside Courtesy of Patric Schneider Kirstin Keller consoles Smithson Valley's Jeremy Brannon after the Rangers lost to Katy Saturday. A heartbreaking finish for SV By Will Wright Sports Editor HOUSTON — Any defeat hurts. But Saturday’s 17-14 loss by the Smithson Valley Rangers to Katy in Saturday’s Class 5A-Divi-sion II state football semifinal hurt even more — not because of what the Rangers did during the game, but the sudden finality that comes with the end to a successful season. “It’s heartbreaking,’’ senior defensive lineman Ryan Moczygemba said. “A lot of us aren’t even going to play football again. It’s just hard to deal with. You’re that close, and it’s over. You don’t want it to be over. We’re all like brothers. Its just hard to deal with.’’ Smithson Valley’s season ended with 13 wins in 15 games. By all rights, that’s more than enough for some schools. But it’s not enough for the Rangers, who were seeking See RANGERS, Page 12A To donate to the Cheer Fund, stop by the Herald-Zeitung office at 707 Landa St. between 8 a.rn and 5 p m Monday through Friday or mail a check made out to the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung to Cheer Fund, New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung, 707 Landa St., New Braunfels, 78130.

"I thought she was playing,” he said. “Then she came back and said she was serious.” Though Hope’s teenage daughters, Kristie Macias, 17 and Valarie Casares, 14, are not thrilled about dressing up, they See WISH, Page TOA County judge formally files to run for third term By Ron Maloney Staff Writer Comal County Judge Danny heel filed as a candidate tursday for his third term in e county's top office.

One such scenario would be conservation easements, where the See JUDGE, Page 9A County Judge Danny Scheel Friends, family join together for Christmas parade By Jessica Sanders Staff Writer Clowns, animals and swooping jets couldn’t get much emotion out of Tinson Mallory on Saturday morning. The energetic 12-year-old was saving her applause for the Smithson Valley Middle School Band. “There’s Tanya in the blue jacket!” she shouted while bouncing on the shoulder of FM 2673. “There’s Alex!” Vanisha Mallory, Tinson’s mother, said seeing friends and neighbors is the most special part of Satder’s annual Christmas parade. Gathering the community together makes it easier to get into the Christmas spirit, she said. “We’ve probably missed only one parade since we’ve lived here,” she said. “It’s something a lot of people in the big city don’t get to see, and that’s what makes it special.” Dignitaries in fancy cars and children on floats called out to friends in the audience or just said “Merry Christmas” to strangers. Timothy Sturman said the casual feel of the parade was part of its appeal. “I like that people stop to talk to you,” he said. Sturman, his wife, Denise, and son, Jacob, got up early to see their son, Erie, play trumpet with the Canyon High School Marching Band. Jacob, however, was more interested in other parts of the show. “I like that you get candy,” the 6-year-old said.
