The city clerk on Thursday certified 9,5S6 signatures, ai)out 3,400 more than nc'eded to prompt a May recall (’lection for Cook. The mayor of the West Tt'xas liorder city of more than 800,000 residents is challenging the recall in court. The recall election signature drive was organized by evangelist Tom Brown, pastor of the Word oi l ife Church in FI Paso. He also pushed the Noveml>er 2010 vote to ask resid('nts wh('ther the city should Jimit health benefits to legal spouses and dependent (hildren of city employcH's: The mayor has challenged the fX'titions bec ause hi' believes some of the signatures were obtained in violation of a Texas law that bans cbrfiorations, including churches, from partii ipatingin rt'cail elections.

LAURA McKENZIEMcrald Zeitung Colleen Willard Q: What advice would you give to someone new to New Braunfels'?’ A: “Learn to pronaunce 'New Braunfels' correctly. The 's' is on the end." According to Judy Young at the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce: ■ In 1858, first City School founded and funded by self imposed taxes. Now, for me, this puts us as the Founder of the Texas Public Education System. This was a community that voluntarily taxes itself to provide education for its children; Germans do kind of own ''kindergarten," so it probably wasn't a foreign concept to them. Also in 1858, New Braunfels Dramatic Society (Neu Braunfelser Theater-Gésellschaft) was founded, The first six performances of this society were donated to the school board for the building fund of the first school. ih-z BECOME AN i-REPORTER Have a photo or local news item you’d like published'^ E-mait it to firstname.lastname@example.org .
