New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 13, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 6 —Herald-Zehunc —Tuesday, December 13, 2005 Garden Ridge celebrates annual Christmas party with fun, ‘scandal’ CISD BOND ELECTION POLLING LOCATIONS By Jessica Sanders Staff Writer GARDEN RIDGE — There was a scandal in Garden Ridge on Saturday night. “The mayor, mayor pro tem, two city councilmen and I carved a ham,” confessed Councilman John McCaw. “But we ate half of it.” The food was going fast during the town’s annual Christmas party, which looked more like a family reunion. Hundreds of Garden Ridge employees, residents and friends gathered to wine and dine. Santa Claus even doled out coffee mugs to some lucky adults. “This started several years ago as a party for city employees at someone’s house,” Mayor Jay Feibel-man said. “We felt limited in the number of people we could invite, but now we can invite everyone.” Garden Ridge’s new municipal complex building was decked out in holiday style with a Christmas tree, poinsettias, lights and holly. The town’s party now welcomes residents from all over Comal County and beyond. Sgt. Able Mireles said this is his first year to attend the party. He recently joined the Garden Ridge Police Department after retiring from the San Antonio police force. “We were on duty and they called us to come out and meet the residents and employees,” he said. “It’s really fun.” Allen Church, a Garden Ridge resident, said he came to the party to get on the good side of local officials. “Everyone should know Bond reduction denied in DeWalt case From Staff Reports Suzanne DeWalt did not get the bond reduction she requested Monday and likely will remain in the Comal County Jail until her trial. DeWalt, whose bond remains at $1.1 million, has been charged with kidnapping, hindering the apprehension of a known felon and two counts of interfering with child custody. She fled to Mexico with her son rather than surrender him to her ex-husband at the conclusion of a 2002 custody trial. She was apprehended Sept. 9 in Mexico and deported back to the United States. Comal County District Attorney Dib Waldrip said he was relieved DeWalt would not get another chance to run off. Not reducing DeWalt’s bond “will ensure her appearance at trial and protect the victim from further abduction,” he said. “I told the judge she fled the first time right under the eyes of the court. Any conditions he could have put on a bond reduction would likely not suffice to keep her here, given her history.” If DeWalt is convicted, she could receive two to IO years in state prison and a $100,000 fine for the kidnapping or hindering apprehension charges. Interfering with child custody is a state jail felony punishable by six months to two years in prison.

Anniver saries and birthdays were announced, and even some big kids took a seat on Santa’s lap. Joan Church, Allen Church’s wife, said Garden Ridge still has the feel of a very friendly small town, and the Christmas party is just another way to enjoy it. "You get to know these people, not just in passing,” she said. “You get to know their families and their children. The men hang out and trade war stories. It’s really friendly here.” CISD CONTINUED FROM Page 1 Two-cent increase projected for taxes includes two additional elementary schools. According to CISD, Proposition I will last for about three years, while Proposition 2 is expected to last an additional two years. There is a projected 2-cent increase on the debt service portion of district taxes. The increase would not go into effect until 2008 and could be less than 2 cents if the district growth increases fast enough.
