   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 20, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 SALE  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  °P  a  bar napkin," Besson said. "The organization takes the pressure off of buyers and kids and puts bids on animals toward the end of the sale.  "We don't buy champion animals. A lot of people want to give the Comal County Junior Livestock Show Association, but don’t know how. Lots of donations to 'We re All In!' add up to big sales.” CCJLSA promotes agricultural life by providing Comal County youth with a venue to show and sell their livestock projects.  This is the organization’s second year participating in Comal County Junior livestock Show Association’s show and sale.  “We’re proud to say, last year, we raised about $33,000 in a two-week period of time before the sale,” Dees said. "Our goal this year is about $50,000.”  Dees said about 100 individuals are participating in this year’s sale through “We’re All In!” About  LIBYA, YEMEN CRACK DOWN; BAHRAIN PULLS BACK TANKS  CAIRO (AP) — Security forces in Libya and Yemen fired on pro-democracy demonstrators Saturday as the two hard-line regimes struck back against the wave of protests that has already toppled autocrats in Egypt and l\inisia. At least 15 died when police shot into crowds of mourners in Libya’s second-largest city, a hospital official said.  Even as Bahrain’s king bowed to international pressure and withdrew tanks to allow demonstrators to retake a symbolic square in the capital, Libya’s Moammar Gad-hafi and Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh made clear they plan to stamp out opposition and not be dragged down by the reform movements that have grown in nations from Algeria to Djibouti to Jordan.  Libyans returned to the street for a fifth straight day of protests against Gadhafi, the most serious uprising in his 42-year reign, despite estimates by human rights groups of 84 deaths in the North African country—with 35 on Friday alone.  LIVESTOCK SHOW, SALE  Comal County Junior Livestock Show Association's show and sale is Wednesday through Saturday at Comal County Fairgrounds.  Times of animal shows:  ■ Turkeys — Wednesday at noon  ■ Broilers — Wednesday at noon  ■ Rabbits — Wednesday at 3 p.m.  ■ Goats — Thursday at 7 a.m.  ■ Swine — Thursday at 1 p.m.  ■ Sheep — Friday at 7 a.m.  ■ Steers — Friday after sheep show  ■ Heifers — Friday after steer show All sales can be made on Saturday.  For information, or to become a "We're All In!" sponsor, call Mike at (210) 860-9623 or Jeff at (830) 702-0000.  1,200 children will be participating in this year’s show and sale.  'These kids have worked at least eight months, if not longer, raising these animals,” Dees said. ‘ They learn how to take care of these animals by doctoring and feeding them. They are not just raising an animal, but raising kids.”  Dees said donations to the organization will be used during the live sale to incrementally  boost prices of animals that fall on the lower end of the bidding scale. Buyers, after spending their budgets on popular animals, tend to leave the auction before other animals are sold.  “I’ve seen that with the economy, buyers need help, too,” Besson said. The organization could make a difference in over 100 children’s’ lives. We can purchase about 250 animals.”  The show and sale is Wednesday through Saturday at Comal County Fairgrounds. All sales can be made final on Saturday.  Purchased animals are shipped to either a slaughterhouse or a buyers’ ranch for butchering.  “It’s not about the animal, it’s about the education process these kids are gaining by participating in shows,” Besson said. These kids have worked so hard. Hie kid that finished 50th worked just as hard as the kid who finished first. The dedication is there.”  l or information, or to become a “We’re All In!” sponsor, call (210) 860-9623 or (830) 702-0000.  Sunday, February 20, 2011 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 9A  New Braunfels Council will discuss project funding  By Greg Bowen  The Herald-Zeitung  New Braunfels City Council will meet at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday for a workshop on which capital improvement projects it will fund in 2011.  “It’s the beginning of the process for them to determine which projects they want to fund and how much debt they want to issue (to finance those projects) in this fiscal year,” said Debi Kor-inchock, the city’s chief financial officer.  She said early planning had focused on funding the Walnut Avenue reconstruction project and other projects, including the North Tributary drainage project.  Council has more recently shown interest in funding other projects not on the early list, including such things as the flood-warning siren system and  NEW BRAUNFELS CITY COUNCIL  When: 4:30 p.m., Tuesday  Where: Municipal Building, 424 S. Castell Ave.  new rail crossings and road widening on Farm-to-Market 306.  “So TUesday, we’re asking council to refresh the list,” she said.  Korinchock said council also will be asked if it wants to move forward more quickly on the debt issuance, because city staffers are anticipating interest rates may climb.  Council may want to issue the 2011 certificates of obligation sooner to take advantage of the current lower interest rates, she said.  Korinchock said council is expected to give direction to staff on Tuesday, but council approval of project funding will take place at upcoming council meetings.  EXPECTING? EXPECTTHE BEST..
