About a quarter of the staff at Cal-Tex Protective Coatings participated in "National Take Your Dog To Work Day," giving each of them a chance to introduce their co-workers to their very own pride and joy: The canine child, officials said. "Oh, it's similar to bring your child to work and we've been begging, excuse the pun, to do this since November," said Faye Wood, director of people resources, as she walked around with her 9- year-old poodle. "This is Hollywood, and I don't call her a poodle, as I don't want it getting to her head," said Wood, a New Braunfels resident. "Holly's just my fluffy dog." As dogs ranging in size from a mini daschund to a Great Dane mingled around the water cooler - the dog bowl was way too small for such a crowd - in preparation for several "Best of" contests, their owners happily traded stories and fun facts. it toTe ^to^^Z^S^ More than 20 Cal-Tex employees brought more than their lunch to work today when the of tliir pooche" K^lSSrd^ Schertz plant opened its doors for NationalTakeYour Dog to Work day Friday. contest.

About a month ago, Surecap Village Partners - an Austin-based development group that specialized in high-end shopping centers - submitted an application to the city for a $5 million TIRZ for the Canyon Crossings shopping center set to be built along 1-35 and Farm-to Market 306. Behind closed doors, city leaders quiedy met to discuss the application. The result: Economic consultants for the city told developers to go back and "sharpen their pencils" before they could jump on board. Developers took their initial figure, which See TIRZ, Page 3A County By Laura Blewitt The Herald-Zeitung In an effort to increase efficiency and reduce labor in the recycling process, the Comal County recycling program is doing more than just recycling cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, metal and aluminum. It's recycling out-of-commission garbage trucks, too. The new concept, which Hornseth said first was integrated about a month ago, is a form of single-stream recycling. The recyclables do not need to be separated at drop off any more. They can be placed directly in the back 4 ' % - trucks - ^ 1 �_� J 1J fV * 1 p CENTERS Spring Branch - Fire Station, FM 311/Hwy 281 FM 306/Potters Creek - Qanyoh Lake Fire Station #3.

The re-used rear-end garbage trucks will be parked at the recycling sites for recycling drop-off, and drivers will take recyclables to Vista Fibers in San Antonio to be sorted partially by hand and by machines, he said. Comal County has received three of the five trucks it was promised by the city of New Braunfels, which now uses a new type of garbage trucks. The old ones still are in good condition and perfect to use as recycling trucks, Hornseth said. "We're about halfway through the transition," Hornseth said. The new procedure cuts down the labor process at each site, which will allow workers to be spread out to new centers, he said. The county hopes to incorporate up to five new centers. In the past, recyclers were asked to bring sorted recyclables to one See RECYCLING, Page 10A 4 J ML 1* if- lit/ I- !'

Koontz McCombs is also planning to include a multi-familV project with eight builoings comprised of 252 apartment-like units, a clubhouse and a pool, said Melanie Boehm, spokeswoman for Koontz McCombs.
