“Everyone in the town came out to meet us,” Schultz said. “They were all dressed in their Sunday best and the children had made paper flowers. The banner behind the crowd read Welcome Teachers from Texas.’”
The group spent the entire day touring the community’s model boarding school and the homes of local farmers. Everywhere they went, the teachers were shadowed by villagers who were curious to see what they were doing.
Following Chinese tradition, the teachers were showered with gifts, some more welcome than others.

“They gave us fruit, beer and cigarettes,” Schultz said with a laugh. “We were a bit worried about that because its considered rude to turn them down when they offer you something. There were several people in our group who smoked their first and last cigarette that day.”
When they had a chance to talk to their Chinese teaching colleagues, the groups of educators discovered they did not have much in common.
“They had a hard time understanding the way we teach because all they do is lecture and students memorize. There is no critical think-

CANYON LAKE — The Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is accepting comments on the Environmental Assessment, a National Environmental Policy Act document, for the alternatives pertaining to the proposed implementation of the Cranes Mill Road Boat Ramp by Comal County.
The preferred alternative would consist of outgranting approximately 0.5 acres of federal land from the Corps to Comal County, construction of a new boat ramp and floating dock facility on Corps fee-owned property, construction of a 4-acre parking lot area on private land on which the Corps owns a flowage easement, and removal of at least 30 vehi-cle-with-trailer overflow parking spaces within the Cranes Mill Park Boat Ramp and at
the end of Cranes Mill Road.
In addition, approximately 9,746 cubic yards of fill material was removed from the Suchi Creek Channel area during the Mystic Shores Park development project. Comal County would be granted credit for this excavated material to offset the placement of approximately 5,700 cubic yards of fill material in the Canyon Lake flood storage pool required for construction of the Cranes Mill Road Boat Ramp project.
Written comments on the Environmental Assessment will be accepted through Sept. IO by sending them directly to Jeffry A. Tripe, CESWF-PER-EE, P.O. Box 17300, Fort Worth 76102-0300, or by e-mail at JeffryATMpe#swft)2 .usace.ar my.mil.

Notice of Public Hearing on Tax increase
Last year, the Comal County property tax rate was $0.333740. That rate raised $16,824,847, a portion of which was used to fund operations such as:
Law enforcement services; maintenance of county roads; district and county courts; county health services; criminal prosecution; probation services; maintenance of county buildings; vital statistics record maintenance; maintain voter registration records; conduct elections; collect property taxes; register motor vehicles.
This year, Comal County is proposing a property tax rate of $0.353747. That rate would raise $19,894,700, which is $3,069,853 more than taxes imposed last year.
There will be two public hearings to consider that increase. The first public hearing will be held on August 25, 2005 at 8:15 AM at 199 Main Plaza New Braunfels, TX 78130. The second hearing will be held on September 8, 2005 at 7:00 PM at 199 Main Plaza New Braunfels, TX 78130.
Criminal Justice Mandate:
The Comal County Auditor certifies that Comal County has spent $0 in the previous 12 months beginning 01/01/2005, for the maintenance and operations cost of keeping inmates sentenced to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Comal County Sheriff has provided information on these costs, minus the state revenues received for reimbursement of such costs.
Enhanced Indigent Health Care Expenditures:
Comal County spent $0 from 07/01/2004 to 06/30/2005 on enhanced indigent health care at the increased minimum eligibility standards, less the amount of state assistance. For the current tax year, the amount of increase above last year's enhanced indigent health care expenditures is $0
