According to a release from the AG’s office, a court-ordered temporary restraining order has been issued halting the business activities of Brian Bailey of New Braunfels and his business, Elite Med. Bailey, who lives on Farm-to-Market 306, listed the business address of Elite Med as 1742 Hunter Road, but state inspectors said they found no inventory or records kept at that address, a small home that Bailey rents to tourists, the AG said. The state’s lawsuit, filed in Bexar County, says Bailey provided unapproved prescription medical devices — arthritis injections — to Texas clinics and physicians. The AG said that Bailey, in April 2006, began to distribute the injection drugs Ortho-vise, Synvisc, Hyalgan and Eufflexa, which he purchased in bulk from a Canadian company, M.T.E. Diagnostics. There was no indication in the lawsuit that the devices were sold in Comal County.

More Than Just a Hot Meal By Megan Holt The Herald-Zeitung For some senior citizens, a familiar knock on the door during the lunch hour brightens their day. The Meals On Wheels program at the Comal County Senior Citizens Center has been helping feed New Braunfels homebound and disabled seniors since the early 1990s. Hot, nutritious meals are served to low-income people who wish to remain independent in their homes, said James Walker, Comal County Senior Citizens Center nutrition manager. “Before, seniors were proud and didn’t want outside help, but now, families aren’t able to help them as much,” Walker said. "The economy has a lot to do with it. People are trying to get any kind of benefits to make ends meet.” Walker said Meals On Wheels serves an average of 205 home-delivered meals daily with a yearly total of 49,200 meals. Just a week into the year, 51 clients have applied and See MEALS, Page 12 WANT TO HELP The Comal County Senior Citizens Cente Meals On Wheels prc gram is always in nee of volunteer drivers. 1 help, visit the Comal County Senior Citizen Foundation website a www.nbsenior.org .

LAURA McKENZIE Herald-Zeitung By Greg Bowen The Herald-Zeitung Workers with Lacks Home Furnishings in New Braunfels and Schertz seemed to be taking the closing of the 73-year-old chain in stride Wednesday. "Everybody’s had a tremendous attitude,” said Adam Peek, manager of the New Braunfels store, as an employee dismantled his office desk, which had been sold. The company, founded in 1938, announced in mid- November that it would close its 36 retail stores across Texas due to bankruptcy. Wednesday was the last day of business for the New Braunfels store, where customers browsed around seeking bargains among the last few unsold pieces of new furniture and the well-used filing cabinets, shelves and other office furniture that had been used in the store.
