The company, which has 1,972 employees in New Braunfels, submitted for reimbursement through the incentive package for 403 jobs, Scott said.  "All of the jobs are still here. They pay at least $20 an hour. And 61 percent of those hired are from Comal and Guadalupe counties," Scott said.  More than 500 were hired, but the company could apply for incentive payments only for those employees who met all the  Lemos said.  Simmang, de Lemos said before the judge handed down his sentence, is going to "continue to pose a threat until he is locked up for life or 99 years."  Simmang's father Dirk Simmang disagreed.

The incentive funds were used to retro-fit an existing office buildine on Elliot Knox Boulevard and create a 54,000 square-foot Scooter Store location there.  The 18-month agreement began jan. 1,2009, for jobs that would be created through June 30, 2010, Scott said. Incentive funds were paid to the firm quarterly as it met the terms of the provisions.  Scott said the city will continue to audit the company to make sure it continues to meet the requirements over seven years.  "Should we dip below the 403 jobs, we'd be required on a sliding scale to pay back the 4B board for any jobs we don't retain. But we don't anticipate that," Scott said.

The legislation would eliminate marijuana-specific penalties under federal law, but would maintain a ban on transporting marijuana across state lines. It would allow individuals to grow and sell marijuana in states that make it legal.  The bill has no chance of passing the Republican-controlled House.  The bill was introduced by Democrat Barney Frank of Massachusetts and Ron Paul, a Texas Republican running for his party's presidential nomination.  Four Democrats are cosponsors: John Conyers of Michigan, Barbara Lee of California, Jared Polis of Colorado and Steve Cohen of Tennessee.  "Criminally prosecuting  adults for making the choice to smoke marijuana is a waste of law enforcement resources and an intrusion on personal freedom," Frank said.  "I do not advocate urging people to smoke marijuana. Neither do I urge them to drink alcoholic beverages or smoke tobacco. But in none of these cases do I think prohibition enforced by criminal sanctions is good public policy."  The bill would have to go through the House Judiciary Committee. Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said his panel would not consider it.  "Marijuana use and distribution is prohibited under federal law because it has a high potential for abuse and does not have an accepted medical use in the U.S.," Smith said. "The Food and Drug Administration has not approved smoked marijuana for any condition or disease.  ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)  The mother of a Florida woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter testified Thursday that she had conducted Internet searches about chloroform on a family computer, directly contradicting prosecutors' theory that it was the suspect who made the queries.  Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy, said she had run the chloroform queries while looking up information on chlorophyll, a green pigment found in plants.  She believed her dogs may have been eating bamboo leaves containing chlorophyll.  Cindy Anthony also said she ran searches on other chemicals, such as hydrogen peroxide, after she was informed about a hand san-itizer scare.  Casey Anthony listened to her mother's testimony without showing emotion.  The testimony was a surprise to prosecutors who contend that Casey Anthony made the searches. Dur  ing cross-examination, prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick suggested that Cindy Anthony never mentioned the searches during depositions and that work records show that Cindy Anthony was at her job during the time the searches were made on the family's home computer.  Cindy Anthony responded that she could leave work when she needed to and that the work records might not have reflected her absence.  "You were aware that computer searches were an issue?" Drane Burdick said.  Drane Burdick asked Cindy Anthony whether she remembered denying that she conducted the searches during her 2009 deposition.  "I did not look up how to make chloroform. I looked up chloroform," Cindy Anthony said. "I did tell the detectives, and I did tell the state attorneys about the searches."
