Page 3A  Communities in Schools contract renewal delayed  ByBric J.V«toilbaGh«r  The Herald-Zeitung  The approval of the Communities in Schools' contract with the New Braunfels Independent School District has been delayed by a budgeting error.  The delay is the first in the national drop-out prevention program's 17 years working with NBISD.  "Because we had some details to work out, (the contract) wasn't (adopted)," said NBISD assistant superintendent Vickie Pursch.  In April, the school district budgeted for the program by looking at the $200,000 cost for the 2008-09 school year.  On i^ril 20, the NBISD Board of Trustees approved $200,000 for the total cost of services from Communities in Schools.  The actual request from Communities in Schools submitted on April 6 was for $206,000. The $206,000 request was not addressed in the budgeting process.  "It was a little confusing that night as there was never a question as to the (need for CIS)," said Communities in  See CONTRACT, Page 3A  New Life Center rededication today  By Eric J. WttiibadiM'  The Herald-Zeitung  The New Life Children's Center will celebrate campus additions at 2 p.m. today.  The center, located on 650 Scarborough Rd. in Canyon Lake just completed a $2.1 million expansion program.  The center is run by Lutheran Social Services based in Austin, and targets giris in the Austin to San Antonio corridor ages 11 to 17 who possess severe emotional and behavioral problems, often linked to sexual abuse, child abuse and neglect.  The additions include a chapel, charter school, agricultural bam, athletic fields, landscaping, library and other improvements. The center serves about 150 girls a year.  "Essentially there are 60 beds fiill at all times. There is another campaign to add a new dormitory to add 20 beds," said Scott Carroll with Lutheran Social Services.  "There is a serenity bam. They house goats, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, longhom cattle ... The girls have to earn the privilege through good behavior (to tend to the animals)," he said.

ART IS ALL AROUND  By Betty Taylor  Correspondent  It is the largest show of the season at the New Braunfels Art League Gallery. The 44th Annual ARToberfest officially opened Saturday at the dovmtown gallery, 239W. San Antonio St., with artists from all over the Texas hill country, representing all media, participating.  "This is the only show you can participate in where you don't have to be a member of the New Braunfels Art League," said Kay Reinke, co-chair.  Sherry Wooley, also co-chair, said it is the only judged and juried show.  About 250 artists have submitted pieces in years past and the show can get pretty selective, Wooley said.  "The statistics are that about 70  percent get selected," Reinke said. "Participants can submit three pieces in any category."  Artists were able to submit pieces in the categories of oil/acrylic; water media on paper; sculpture, pottery, ceramics; pastel painting and drawings; photography; and all other, such as jewelry, textile art, pressed  See ART, Page 3A  State begins ambitious $3 billion quest to cure cancer  ByPmilJ.W»lMr  Associated Press Writer  AUSTIN, Texas — Texas gave birth to the modem oil industry, invented the handheld calculator and sent man to the moon. But can the Lone Star State cure cancer?  Texas is ready to try by investing $3 billion over the next decade in cancer research and prevention, which would make the state the gatekeeper of the second largest pot of cancer research doUars in the United States, behind only the National Can  cer Institute.  "I don't know anyone that would stand shoulder-to-shoulder with what they're trying to do," said Robert Urban, executive director of the Koch Institute for Innovative Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of  Technology.  That impression is what Texas leaders sought in 2007, when the state created the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas through an ambitious bond  See CANCER, Page 3A
