About 3:25 p.m. Sunday, fire personnel went to the intersection of Hollyhock and Camellia lanes where they found a motorcyclist sitting upright in tne middle of the street after falling off his bike, Capt. Fbtrick O'Connell said. He said he didn't know  why the biker had fallen.  I don't think he hit anything," O'Connell said. "I just think he laid it down."  The man was flown by AirLIFE to University Hospital in San Antonio with serious injuries, O'Connell said.  Later that night, three youths at Teen Connections, 1414 W. San Antonio St., may have caused a fire alarm to sound at the building, prompting a response from the fire department, O'Connell said.  He said it appeared the teens were smoking in a room and one of them  sprayed shaving cream into a smoke detector in an attempt to cover the smoke smell. An alarm sounded, and at least one of the teens pulled the smoke detector from its base hoping to remove a battery to stop the alarm, O'Connell said.  It didn't work and the fire department responded about 10:55 p.m., and left about 11:25 p.m., O'Connell said.  Then on Monday, nine firefighters in four vehicles took about two hours to extinguish a two-acre brush fire in the 4800 block of I-35 North, O'Connell said.  HIDDEN HISTORY  ZINK STREET  Zink Street is at the fork of Landa Street and North Seguin Avenue  UNIQUE FACT  Built between 1845 and 1848. In 1844,  Johann Nicolaus Zink, a civil engineer and former Bavarian army officer, was chosen by Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels to supervise the move of German immigrants from the coast to the future site of New Braunfels. An 1848 map shows the first five streets — Seguin (main street), San Antonio, Bridge, Kirche ("Church," later an extension of Coll) and Creek Street, the route that connected Comal Creek to the Zinkenburg. By 1868, Creek Street had been renamed "Zink," according to a map from Cherise Bell, Historic Preservation Officer for the City of New Braunfels.  WHO OWNS IT?  Zink Street, lacking any visible recognition of its namesake or the Zinkenburg aside from the street sign itself, is maintained by the city.  — Marilyn Kuehler  To submit ideas for the Hidden History feature, send an email to  news@herald-zeitung.com   PEC workers support 373 organizations  Pedernales Electric  Law enforcement officers in New Braunfels and Comal County booked the following incidents between June 3 and June 6:  ♦ Donna Baird Owensby, 52, New Braunfels, affidavit of surety to surrender/wrong fictitious/ altered/obscured vehicle plate registration  ♦ Venancio Partida-Barrera, 36,  San Antonio, no drivers license, hold for Immigration & Customs Enforcement  ♦ Raquel Rae Patterson, 19, Pasadena, public intoxication-minor  ♦ Christine Smith Quinlan, 45, Austin, public intoxication  ♦ Michael Eugen Reed, 24, Longview, driving while intoxicated/open alcohol container  ♦ John James Reinhart, III, 56,  San Antonio, public intoxication  ♦ Michael Ningo Rios, 27, San Antonio, possession of marijuana under two ounces, no drivers license  ♦ Jesse Gilbert Rodriguez, 49, San Antonio, motion to revoke proba-tion-interfere with duties of public servant  ♦ Jason Ruiz, 32, Dallas, public lewdness  ♦ Ricardo Ricky Serrano, 25, New Braunfels, possession of marijuana under two ounces  ♦ Alexandra Beverly Skinner, 20, San Antonio, possession of marijuana under two ounces, possession of narcotic paraphernalia  ♦ Nathan Jeremiah Smith, 30, Canyon Lake, public intoxication  ♦ Adam Baker Steed, 34, Kyle, violate city ordinance-cooler size, failure to appear/bail jumping  ♦ Brian Wayne Varela, 43, San Marcos, bond forfeiture/possession controlled substance penalty group 3 under 28G  ♦ Hector Vera, 17, New Braunfels, evading arrest detention  ♦ Guillermo S.

"United Charities is a great program  because it allows PEC  Staff reports  employees to give back to their neighbors, communities and favorite charitable organizations," said Bobby Bryant, who serves as chairman for United Charities and is a Co-op training instructor.  CORRECTION  In the story "Texas' longest publishing newspaper began as German-only product" in the Tuesday, June 7, edition, correspondent Marilyn Kuehler wrote that the Herald-Zeitung is the oldest continuously published newspaper in Texas.  Her source was the "Neu-Braunfelser Zeitung" exhibit at Sophienburg Museum and Archives, which states, in part, on a card next to the exhibit: "Herald-Zeitung is the oldest continuous newspaper in Texas."  Herald-Zeitung publisher Doug Toney on Tuesday said, "I have tremendous respect for the Sophienburg Museum and Archives and the incredible volunteers there. No better authori exists, that I'm aware  ity  of,  when it comes to the history of New Braunfels and Comal County. However, my research indicates that the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung is actually the sixth oldest newspaper in Texas.  "The Galveston County Daily News is recognized as the oldest newspaper in Texas, starting in 1842," Toney said. "According to the historical records kept by the Texas Press Associa-tion, the second oldest newspaper in Texas is the Victoria Advocate, 1846; then the Palestine Herald Press in 1849, and the Huntsville Item and the Cherokeean Herald in 1850."  "That puts the Neu-Braunfelser Zeitung, now the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung, as the sixth oldest newspaper in Texas," Toney said in response to the claim the Herald-Zeitung was the oldest newspaper in Texas.
