Heimer, 91,2 p.m., Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home, New Braunfels. ■ John Stephen Golla, 43, IO a.m., St. James Catholic Church, Seguin.ENERGY CONTINUED FROM Page 1A High prices should continue next year through the end of next year and potentially longer than that. That is more than two-and-a-half times the $19.70 a barrel that crude-oil futures averaged during the 1990s, and about 60 percent more than the average price since 2000. It’s probably not enough to cripple the economy in 2006, but stubbornly high prices for oil and natural gas could stunt growth and increase inflationary pressures for the second year in a row. With supplies still relatively tight, there is always the risk of a more severe energy-related economic shock if there were a major disruption like the most recent hurricane season. Economists say the more likely scenario is that Americans will begin to breathe a little easier by the second half of the year. That’s because they will have already absorbed much of the pain of a multiyear run-up in prices and will benefit from stable, if not falling, energy costs. From airlines to manufac turers to retailers, “we’re seeing a lot of emphasis on conservation in business,’’ said Stephen R Brown, an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas. Companies that weren’t already making changes before hurricanes Katrina and Rita are doing so now because they saw how tight supplies are and how easily a disruption could push up prices, he said. At the consumer level, Brown sees the discounting of SUVs and the premiums auto dealers are charging for gas-electric hybrids as the early signs of a slow but significant change. “These things take time,” he said. “Quite often, people mistake the amount of time it takes to adjust to prices as evidence of society not responding.” TEXAS CINEMA MARKETPLACE 12 651 Business Lp.

It even can spread when an infected person touches a doorknob or other frequently used surface, she said. “Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands,” Mills said, “especially after touching someone who may be infected.” Delta pilots approve second hefty pay cut ATLANTA (AP) — Delta Air Lines Inc. pilots accepted a 14 percent pay cut in a deal their union negotiated with management to help the bankrupt carrier cope with an expected cash crunch. About 58 percent of the members who voted Wednesday approved die deal, which is die second double-digit pay cut Delta pilots have taken in 13 months. Delta and the Air line Pilots Association, which represents the Atlanta-based company’s 6,000 pilots, will now try to hammer out a comprehensive agreement by March, lf not, the sides have agreed to let the decision be made by a three-person arbitration panel. Ultimately, 3,(XII pilots voted to slash the average salary of rank-and-file pilots from $170,000 to about $146,000. Mills suggested that people avoid crowded spaces and stay home if they are feeling ill. “The most important thing people can do is take care of themselves,’’ she said. CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Flames devastate entire communities apparently fell and broke her hip, Texas Forest Service spokeswoman Traci Weaver said. The state Department of Emergency Management said there were four deaths, but did not have details on the fourth fatality. Authorities went door-to-door in Cross Plains until everyone in the town of 1,000 residents was accounted for by Wednesday afternoon, Dean said. "We had a tornado here years ago and we thought that was devastating.” said Patricia Cook, a special education aide whose Cross Plains home was saved by her 18-year-old son, J.D., and a friend. They saw the flames approaching the house from across a field and ran to save it. “The fire was literally nipping at their heels,” she said. “He just picked up the hose and started watering things down.” The Cook home is on the same block as the First United Methodist Church, which was consumed by the fire along with several pre-World War ll brick-and-wood row houses on the town’s Main Street. A front brick wall and part of a side wall were left standing, but the church’s steeple laid on the ground Wednesday among the sooty rubble. “I just thank God I had a pillow to lay my head on,” said Cook, as she picked up broken pieces of stained glass to save for the church’s reconstruction. Mayor Ray Purvis, who was born and raised in Cross Plains, described his town as “very close-knit.” Built on farming, ranching and oil and gas, the town is best known as a hunters’ designation and the hometown of Robert E. Howard, author of Conan the Barbarian. “Everybody knows everybody,” said Purvis, adding that many residents spent hours Tuesday either fighting blazes on their own properties, or trying to help neighbors put out fires. It’s unclear how the Cross Plains fire started, although some residents said they heard it began with someone flicking a cigarette out of a car window onto the crunchy, brown grass. Severe drought, wind gusting to 40 mph and temperatures reaching the low 80s set the stage for Tuesday’s fires in Texas and Oklahoma, which authorities believe were mostly set by people ignoring fire bans and burning trash, shooting fireworks or putting out cigarettes on the parched ground. In Oklahoma City, a child suffered minor burns on his hands when a shed caught fire. That blaze was apparently started by children playing with fireworks, Fire Department Maj. Brian Stanaland said. ■ It’s beginning to Cook a (bt like... rmATt sr a sdkt L/L/iJ/viv uDiWUiN Centraf Texas Health Research is accepting volunteers ages 12 and older to participate in a research study of an investigational medication for cedar allergies.
