   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 24, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 Page ÎOA — Herald-Zettung — Sunday, April 24, 2011  TESTING  CONTINUED FROM Pag© 1A  said. “I usually clear my mind and pray fur about 30 minutes to an hour. After that, I take a really cold shower to wake me up, and then I start cleaning the house. I also listen to music to help clear my mind,  "My mom wakes up and makes me some really good tacos homemade tortillas, eggs, chorizo y papas — they're great.'  Plugged into I rik’s iPod are Lil Wayne and Diggy Simmons.  "Sometimes when I want to go old school I plug in Led Zeppelin or Jimi Hendrix," he said.  The students begin testing around 9 a.m., break for lunch, and then finish up. Some of them take longer than others. All of them, however, like lo think back on what they did right — and what they might’ve missed.  I think about all of that, hut afterwards I’m pretty confident," Erik said,  Jeremy's an old hand at TAKS testing. He preps in much the same way as Erik, though his regimen is more mental than physical.  I also spend a lot ot time praying," he said. "Specifically, I read Proverbs 2-4, which is all about wisdom, and I pray for the wisdom of Solomon. With I AKS and all of its repetitiveness, it’s easy to get distracted. I he usual mistakes with IAKS are simple mistakes that come from being distracted, so I read that just to help clear my mind.”  Unlike I rik, Jeremy won’t clean his house. He’ll eat a Clif Bar, some fresh fruit and pancakes before heading into  HEALTHY BREAKFAST IDEAS  RELAY  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  sleeps.

On the way, he’ll listen to K-LOVE, a Christian music station, to help him focus.  Jeremy says he has few regrets after taking tests.  "Usually, I’m just relieved it’s over,’’ he said.  Both guys said preparing for testing and football are two different things.  "At a football game, you’ve got to know the strategy and other things and be able to perform them at a physical level," Jeremy said. “And, the (test) pa|)er doesn’t fight back.” leremy said he's not going to miss testing.  “It’s the exit level for me, so if I don’t pass, I’m not going to graduate,” he said. Tm going to buckle down more and focus on these. When we took the English test (earlier this year), I really focused on my essay and proofread it a lot more because I wanted to make sure everything was right.”  At (Canyon Hike, tests will be issued for math, science and  FRUIT & YOGURT SMOOTHIE  Blend low fit vanilla or fruit flavorid yogurt witfi fresh or frozen fruit (unsweetened fruit).  ff necessary, add a splash of low fat mifk or 100 percent fruit juice depending on flavor and consistency.  EATING ON THE RUN  Celery stuffed with peanut butter or cream cheese, dried fruits, string cheese, juice box, milk carton or breakfast bars.  For those who dislike breakfast foods, offer something nontraditional like cold pizza or leftover chicken.  For those with little hunger in the morning, offer juice, milk or a fruit smoothie made with skim mifk and fruit  Choose foods that require little preparation such as fresh and canned fruits, yogurt cheese, cottage cheese, hard-boiled eggs, whole grain cereals or instant oatmeal.  social studies in grades 9-11. Ion Lindholm, Canyon lake’s academic dean, is responsible for making sure all students taking the 1,000 or so tests wind up in the right place at the right time.  “It can be quite a hassle, making sure that every student gets the tests they need to be taking,” said Lindholm, adding there are special TAKS versions that must match students with the correct test.  Lindholm has served as a TAKS testing coordinator for the past eight years, and he’s seen a lot of changes in the test — and in students’ approaches to the process.  “My advice to the kids is to just relax,” he said. “We put so much pressure on them that a lot of times if they don’t do well, they get high strung and keep questioning themselves about it.  “They just need to relax and trust what they’ve learned throughout the year. Don’t stress over it.”  DOGGIE DIP DAY AT SPRING-FED POOL  Lap, where cancer survivors take their lap around the track in celebration of their victory over the disease.  At sundown, there’s a Lumi-naria Ceremony, where candle-lit hags filled with sand line the track, each representing a person who has been touched by cancer.  The Relay is a commitment to enlist in the fight against cancer, and a rededication toward saving lives through  donation and action.  “Last year, we had 97 teams, so we think this year will be our biggest one yet,” Seibert said.  "We’re always looking for volunteers, so if anyone wants to give their time they can just show up that night or during the day. We will start setting up at 8 a.m.”  For information, to register or volunteer, visit www.relay-forlife.com/comaltx.

The annual event is hosted by the City of New Braunfels  Department of Parks and Recreation.  COUNCIL  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  flood, $700,000; flood-warning sirens, $280,000; replacement of lighting at Fredericksburg Field, $150,000; and a $70,000 cash match for the lengthening of a runway at the municipal airport to accommodate larger aircraft.  Funds have been dispensed for some of the projects or portions of projects via reimbursement resolutions, which would be repaid using proceeds from the certificates of obligation.  Drainage workshop  Council also will hold a workshop on the city’s stormwater management program. Discussions are expected on possible revisions to the city’s drainage criteria manual and flood-plain ordinance.  The workshop is part of a council push to make faster progress on drainage improvements called for by citizens after the June 9 flood. The push is expected to include weekly drainage workshops over the coming month.  Other action  Council on Monday also will:  • Consider a change under which councilors would review and approve the city’s drainage criteria manual. Under current procedures, the drainage criteria manual is established and amended by the city engineer and approved by the Planning Commission — and does not go to council for review and approval.  • Consider the purchase of one-tenth of an acre of land needed for the North Tributary Flood Control Project. The land would be purchased from Peace Lutheran Church for $12,560.  • Receive updates on Fisher Park, the South Walnut Avenue Extension Landscaping Project, and two new fire stations.  • Consider applying for $1.2 million in state and federal grants to fund police department purchases, including a mobile command vehicle, a computer-aided police dispatch system and portable police radios.  • Consider an agreement under which the City of San Antonio would supply — at no cost to New Braunfels — $5,000 worth of equipment for fighting wildfires. The agreement is being offered because the city’s fire department participates in the San Antonio Urban Area’s Wild  land Regional Response Team.  • Hold a public hearing on the city’s short-term rental ordinance, which is being revised to incorporate recent changes approved by council banning new short-term rentals in residential areas.  • Hold a public hearing on the landowner-requested annexation of 66 acres of land on Hueco Springs Loop Road. The property, located less than a half-mile from Texas Hwy. 46 and owned by Vincent Smith of New Braunfels, carries a future land-use designation of low-density residential.  • Hold a public hearing on a request from Susan Mil-burn of New Braunfels to designate a house at 185 Ferguson St. as a local historic landmark. The house, which has a permit for use as a bed and breakfast inn and is known as Miss Milbum’s Bed and Breakfast, was built circa 1892.  • Hold a public hearing on a request from John and Car-ola Davis of New Braunfels to designate five lots on West Coll Street as Stock Historic District in recognition of Carl Stock, a German colonist who built the home still standing at 195 Coll St. before succumbing to the cholera epidemic in 1847.
