New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 14, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas 12 I Tuesday, June 14, 2011 | herald-zeitung.com Report: US made 70% of arms seized in Mexico MEXICO CfTY (AP) About 70 percent of the guns seized in Mexico and submitted to a U.S. eun-tracing program came from the United States, according to a report released by three U.S. senators Monday. Of the 29,284 firearms recovered by authorities in Mexico in 2009 and 2010, 20,504 came from the United States, according to figures provided to the senators by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Most of those weapons — 15,131 — were U.S. made, while another 5,373 were of foreign manufacture but had moved through the United States into Mexico. The ATF said the remainder of the weapons total — 8,780 arms — were of "undetermined origin due to insufficient information provided." The figure of the number of guns arriving in Mexico from north of the border has been polemical ever since a June 2009 United States report covering earlier years said that 87 percent of guns seized in Mexico came from the United States. While the report did not spec ify why the percentage had changed, the most recent figures appear to included more gun-trace reports, as the reporting program in Mexico became easier to use.

It has been an exciting success. One year later, the Herald-Zeitung continues to lead the state in subscription growth among newspapers that report circulation numbers to the Texas Daily Newspaper Association. Overall, paid circulation growth is up almost 6 per cent, including online and print subscribers. As of June 4, the Her-ald-Zeitung's daily home delivery is up 2.4 percent over the same time in 2010. The Herald-Zeitung is the oldest continuously operating business in New Braunfels. Residents have relied on the newspaper as a source of information about this community for 159 years. With changing technology, the Herald-Zeitung continues to provide the same community-driven news presented in new ways. Stories are updated throughout the day for our subscribers with reminders of new stories and ways to contribute sent to fans on Facebook and Twitter followers throughout the day. This level of daily interaction opens up the conversation for readers to share their story ideas, suggestions, photos and videos. In case of an emergency — such as a flood, tire or missing person — a "Community Alerts" page is set up that is available free to all residents. As herald-zeitung.com evolves, online readership has continued to grow with more than twice the average daily visitors coming to the site since it was redesigned. "This has been an exciting year at the Herald-Zeitung," said managing editor Autumn Phillips, who led the newspaper through a redesign and through the launch of a new publication, the Comal County Business Journal that hit newsstands this past week. "This past year, we've gotten the chance to experiment, innovate and grow — both in print and online," Phillips said. "And through it all, I believe we've found ways to better serve our readers."Local groups hold Flag Day events today ByJenaCooNdge The Herald-Zeitung On June 14 each year, Americans set aside the day to honor "Old Glory." For area residents, it a chance to respectfully dispose of flags that are worn, torn and faded. American Legion Post 1 79 members and the Knights of Columbus will conduct a Disposal of Unserviceable Flag ceremony beginning at 9 a.m. today at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 111 Lan-da St. The United States flag code suggests American flags that are torn or dirty must be retired through the action of burning. Every Flag Day, the American Legion offers the community with a dignified opportunity for proper flag retirement. American Legion member John Schendel said more than 100 flags have been dropped off for retire- ment. He encourages community members to bring damaged flags to the Pbst at any time for code-abiding disposal. The ceremony continues beyond flag burning. From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the American Legion Walton F. Hoffmann Memorial Post 179, 410 W. Coll St., residents are invited to join in a chicken dinner. The cost of food for adults is $7 donation and $4 donation for children under 12. FLAG DAY When: 9 a.m. today, June 14 Where: Knights of Columbus Hall, 111 Landa St. Cost: $7 for adults and $4 for children under 12 Contact: American Legion Post (830) j 625-0179 Gates sees no bar to lifting gay ban in military WASHINGTON (AP) Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Monday that he sees no roadblocks to ending the ban on openly gay military service, and if the top officers of each service recommend moving ahead on the repeal before the end of the month, he will endorse it. A little over two weeks before ending his 4 1/2 year tenure as Pentagon chief, Gates sat down in his office for an Associated Press interview that touched on a range of issues, including his expectation of a smooth handoff to his designated successor, current CIA Director Leon Panetta. Gates will retire June 30. Ranetta's Senate confirmation is expected shortly. Gates sounded a cautiously optimistic note about developments in troubled Yemen, where the government and opposition tribes have engaged in armed clashes, pushing the country toward civil war. Gates said things have calmed down a bit since President AM Abdullah Saleh left for neighboring Saudi Arabia on June 5 for medical treatment of wounds he suffered in an attack on his compound in Yemen. "I don't think you'll see a full-blown war there," Gates said. "With Saleh being in Saudi Arabia, maybe something can be worked out to bring this to a close," by finding an accommodation among Saleh's family, the opposition tribes and military. The move to end the ban on gay services could be one of Gates' final acts as defense chief. But Gates stressed that he is not trying to hurry the process along, and that if it is not ready by the end of the month, Panetta can take action when he steps in. More than a million U.S. troops have been trained on the new law that repealed the 17-year-old ban on gays serving openly in the armed services, and Gates said the instruction has gone well.
