Seguin Ave. S State Farm Bureau and agriculture representatives will attend. By Scott Mahon Staff Writer State Rep. Carter Casteel wants farmers and ranchers to know what options they have in regard to annexation and preserving agriculture. Casteel will meet at 2 p.m. Monday at the civic center with local residents and representatives from the Texas Farm Bureau and Texas Department of Agriculture. “With so much discussion about annexation these days, I wanted to get farmers and ranchers together and see if I could get some of their questions answered,” Casteel said. “I would like anyone interested in the subject to come to the meeting to voice their concerns.” Casteel said she had received IOO phone calls during the past year from farmers asking for help against annexation. “So I thought it’d be a good time to See Pi . Page 7A Group planning to start local child advocacy center By Ron Maloney Staff Writer April marks sexual assault awareness and child abuse prevention months, and several groups say the county needs to do more for victims. Thursday, Karen McDonald of the Comal County Women's Center, District Attorney Dib Waldrip, Sheriff’s Deputy Donna O’Conner, police detective Tarinna Skrzycki and others updated Comal County commissioners on efforts to bring a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANI:) nursing program and a child advocacy center to New Braunfels. A task force has been meeting with McKenna I iealth Sys tem officials to try to convince the hospital to begin its own SANE program. The hospital has been reluctant because the program is available in San Antonio and because officials claim the caseloads are too low. Thursday, a separate group told commissioners it wants to find a way to fund and build a “children’s advocacy center.” A children’s advocacy center is a one-stop, child-friendly facility designed for the treatment and interviewing of young victims of sexual physical or emotional abuse. It is intended to help begin the healing and closure See VICTIMS. Page 7A SPORTS PLAY BALL In cross-town matchup. Canyon Cougars hand New Braunfels Unicorns baseball team its first district loss.

They constructed a cardboard rocket ship for Davis’ grandsons Cole, 3, and Luke, I. The boys wore painted cardboard jet packs. The project took them three nights of preparation. Davis’ wife, Ian Yoehle Wingate, and daughter, Kim, were in the parade when they were young girls, and now the grandsons are carrying on the tradition. “We can’t let Kindermasken die,” Davis said before the parade. Cole and Luke later placed at the costume contest. The parade also was a family event for Jana Borie. Her mother, Sally, made a princess outfit for Jana’s daughter, Jewel, 3. Jana, who has lived in New Braunfels five years, has never participated. “We always hear about it after its over,” she said. This year, she heard about die parade early, and because it was so easy to enter, decided to participate. Parents just show up for the event, bringing their children in costume.

To be decided are primary elections for County Court-at-Law 2, Precinct I Commissioner and Precinct 4 Constable. Winning the runoff is tantamount to winning the November general election because none of the Republicans faces Democrat opposition. In County Court-at-Law 2, Judge Charles Stephens is seeking to keep the post Comal County commissioners appointed him to this past September against a spirited challenge from New Braunfels attorney Randy (fray. In the March 9 primary, Stephens pulled 2,412 votes (44 percent) against Gray’s 2,336 votes (43 percent). To win the primary, a candidate needed more than 50 percent of the vote. Assistant District Attorney Joe Soane, who got 657 votes or 12 percent of the total, has endorsed Gray. In the Precinct I commissioner contest, incumbent lack Dawson pulled down 1,067 votes (46.72 percent) to opponent Bob Wickman’s 658 votes (28.81 percent). Diane Dasher, who was third with 559 votes (24.47 percent) of the ballots cast, has offered Dawson her support. In Precinct 4, constable candidates Doug Dunlap and Shane Rapp will square off April 13 to determine who will replace Constable Ben Scroggin, who was redistricted into Ifrecinct I, where he ran unopposed.
