County gets cut of drug money
By STEPHANIE FERGUSON New* Editor
A small vacant shop nestled in Downtown New Braunfels soon will be bustling with “teen activity’’ as a local agency prepares to open a business for teens with some products made by teens.
“Kids need to be involved in something that they can feel worthwhile about, they can identify with, and they can have an opportunity to make some money,” said Nancy Ney, executive director of Teen Connection, which will open the shop soon.
The shop, to be called ‘The Teen Scene ... Your Connection for Affordable Clothes & Stuff” will open at 298 W. San Antonio St., adjacent to the Brauntcx Theatre.
And so far, enthusiasm for the project is overwhelming, Ney said, adding several local youth groups have expressed interest in volunteering with anything that needs to be dixie.
One of the main premises behind opening the store is to let students who make arts and crafts or jewelry or other objects to have an opportunity to scil them. Good quality used clothing and other goods bought through surplus houses will also be sold in the shop
Ney said students at Teen Connection also will be making T-shirts to sale once a silk screening process is set up at Teen Connection, 1414 W San Antonio St.
Students, from Teen Connection or from area groups, also will be volunteering to man the store with adult supervision.
Teen Connection offers youth and f amilies alternative schooling, counseling services, emergency shelters, consultation, education, and a thrift shop behind the facility at 1414 W. San Antonio which will remain open after the teen shop is open.
Students and adults interested in getting involved with the new shop should attend a meeting Thursday at 4:30 at the new location. For more information call Teen Connection at 629-6571.

Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer picked up more than $100,000 Saturday when U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm was in San Antonio handing out checks to arca law enforcement agencies for their work in the war on drugs.
And the sheriff is already making out a wish list which includes bulletproof vests, survellience equipment, and undercover vehicles.
Sen. Gramm handed out a record $876,383 to area agencies under provisions of the Federal Asset Sharing
program which awards large portions of assets seized in drug operations to participating agencies.
Agencies receiving funds Saturday during ceremonies at the San Antonio Police Department, were, Comal County Sheriffs Office, San Antonio Police Department, Bexar County District Attorney’s office, San Antonio Airport Police Department, Department of Public Safety, and the Dei Rio Narcotics Task Force.
“This is an opportunity to buy some of the things that are necessary, but a little more sophisticated in nature that will just make our officers’ jobs easier and hopefully enable its to do a better
job,” said Sheriff Bremer, who picked up the check for $ 126,640.
The CCSC) shared in the asset program because of its cooperation with * U.S Customs in a drug bust that culminated rn San Antonio in Oct. 1990 at a motel.
Bremer said the money, which comes from the seized assets of persons arrested and convicted in drug busts, is truly justice
“We can lake the crook’s money — the ill-gotten gams that they dave received — and turn around and use it
against them.” he said.
“The bad guys pay for it. Historically law enforcement has had to pay catchup. The crooks come up with a scheme and then the cops have to come back and try to figure out a way to counteract that scheme and the crooks have always had more money then the cops.”
Bremer said the amount of money he received Saturday is the largest asset-sharing check he has received
“But, records are made to be broken. ’’
