Otis Walter Mueller
Otis Walter Mueller was bom August 31st, 1930 to Ernest Mueller and Hilda Wersterfer Mueller.
He was the youngest of three children. Otis lived most of his life in New Branunfels, Texas, a town which his great grandfather, Wilhelm Mueller helped establish in 1851 when he traveled here from Germany. Otis learned to speak English when he started attending the Frei-heit School in 1936. He eventually transferred to New Braunfels High School his Sophmore year so he could play the bass horn, and graduated from there in May of 1948. He joined the Thirty Sixth Infantry Division Band of the Texas National Guard.
Along with his keen interest in music, Otis loved to dance. And just as if it were scripted, he met the love of his life, Lenora Seidel, one Saturday night at an "oompah" dance at Schumansville Hall. Next week on April 14, 2011, Otis and Lenora would have celebrated 58 years of marriage together. They danced their way through many of those years, and they loved to travel. They travelled all over the world, but Otis carried a passion for the beach and for waterfalls.
Otis was a hard worker. Among other jobs, he helped farm his father’s land on Alves Lane and he worked for 30 years at L.C.RA from which he retired in 1993. Above all, Otis was most passionate about his family and his faith in God. His faith carried him all through life and he passed

TEXTING WHILE DRIVING BAN PASSES INTX HOUSE
AUSTIN (AP) — Driving while sending text or email messages from a cellphone would become a crime under a bill that passed the Texas House on Thursday.
Reading messages would still be legal. The last-minute change making an exception for drivers who look at or read text messages gave voice to opponents who thought the measure was a slap at basic freedom and an invitation to police to harass drivers.
Rep. Larry Taylor, R-League City, who won passage of the modification, said the bill as originally drafted went too far.
“Just looking down briefly at your phone — I don't want to be pulled over as a criminal or breaking the law,” Taylor said. “The actual act of typing up a message and sending it to

somebody else is very dangerous. I have no disagreement with that.”
About 30 states and many municipalities, including San Antonio and El Paso, already have laws that limit texting while driving.
Rep. Tom Craddick, a former Republican House speaker from Midland, sponsored the bill and tried to fight off the amendment making it less stringent. But he said after the vote that it would still curb the activity that is most hazardous.
“I think the main problem is the people with their hands off the wheel,” Craddick said.
It’s already against the law in Texas to use a cellphone in a school zone.

POLICE: FEMALE BURGLAR TARGETS WRONG HOUSE
TYLER (AP) — An armed East Texas woman disguised as a man broke into the wrong house trying to collect a debt and bound and gagged a mother and her three daughters while they were getting ready for school before the family escaped through a window and ran for help Thursday, police said.
Tyler police surrounded the house thinking there was a male suspect with a knife
inside, only to enter the home and find a woman with plastic over her hair, wearing a ball cap, glasses and a fake moustache, said Officer Don Martin.
Officers were “surprised that it turns out to be a female disguised as a male,” Martin said.
The woman had a knife and a fake handgun in her waistband, plus a backpack with duct tape, a stun gun and another knife, police said.
