WayMiller loses Bandera County in initial redistricting mapBy Greg Bowen
State Hep. Doug Miller of New Braunfels would lose Bandera County under the initial House redistricting map released last week.
If the map is approved, Miller's District 73 would retain Comal, Kendall and Gillespie counties.
Under the initial map, Bandera County would become part of Ker-rville state Rep. Harvey Hilderhran's District 53.
Because of population growth revealed in the 2010 Census, Miller
will have to give up either Bandera or Gillespie — and has been leaning toward keeping Gillespie, home of Fredericksburg.
"(Wife) Ann and I own a small ranch in Gillespie County. We have a lot of relatives in Gillespie. So it’s probably more natural that since we’re taxpayers and property owners there, we have maybe a little bit more of an affinity for Gillespie County,” Miller told the Herald-Zeitung last week.
In House District 44, state Rep. John Kuempel ofSeguin would lose Gonzales County and retain
Guadalupe and Wilson counties.
Gonzales County would shift to Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt of Lexington in District 17.
House Redistricting Committee Chairman Burt Solomons of Carrollton issued a statement on the statewide redistricting plan: "The map we are proposing is a fair and legal map that represents the people of Texas and our growth over the last 10 years.”
Hearings on the map were scheduled for Friday and today.
The initial map faced immediate opposition.
State Rep. Garnet Coleman of 1 louston released the following statement: "With a month left before this bill must be considered by the House, the public should have an opportunity to demand a fair plan... I intend to work with the House leaders to allow more input from our constituents who will be impacted for 10 years by this process."
If House members can't agree on how the new districts should look, the matter will go to the Legislative Redistricting Board, which is made up of the lieutenant governor, the speaker of the House, the attorney
general, the land commissioner and the comptroller.Groundwater district
State Rep. Paul Workman of Austin last week told the House Natural Resources Committee that he is proposing to remove western Travis County and the western portion of Comal County from the Hill Country Priority Groundwater Management Area, which is the designation that paves the way for state-ordered formation of groundwater districts in those areas, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

HEROES AND VILLAINS One villain responsible for tooth decay is the bacterium streptococcus mutans, which breaks down sugar and produces the sticky molecules (glucans) that are responsible for allowing bacteria to cling to our teeth. This villainous bacterium also produces an enamel-eroding acid responsible for cavities. The heroes that counter these effects are called "polyphenols,” which are found in the fermented stems, seeds, and grape skins left over from wine production. These compounds, which are also found in cranberries, block streptococcus mutans' ability to produce glucans. As helpful as polyphenols are, however, no one is suggesting that we chink wine or sugary cranberry drinks to prevent tooth decay, instead, scientists hope to isolate these compounds and put them in toothpaste and mouthwashes.
