New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 4, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas HISTORY CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Hotel owners to begin renovation soon “The ride was smooth, and we're grateful for the crowd we had downtown,” said Self, who makes the ride each year. “We had some new riders, and they thought this was a great experience. We appreciate the support of the people in this town.” The Schmitz Hotel is owned by New Braunfels police Officer Kris Malish and his wife, Shannon, who are working to restore the three-story landmark that is the city’s oldest hotel still in existence. This year, Shannon secured a special “Pony Express” postmark for the hotel, which was once the center of commerce in the community. More than IOO people were in attendance to either get the special cancellation for their Christmas cards or see the riders make their grand entrance so Mayor Bruce Boyer could read a proclamation from the governor — and one prepared for him. “We’re very pleased,” Malish said. On Tuesday, the Malishes, with help from Alfred Albrecht Construction, will begin restoration of the outside of their historic hotel. The project will be helped by a $5,000 restoration grant, Malish said, and by Albrecht’s concern for the historic building constructed in 1852 that is now the oldest on Main Plaza. "We’re really excited about it,” Malish said. Local historian John Right-mire said he was excited, too. Rightmire set up a table in front of the Schmitz on Saturday full of old photos and old mail that had come or gone from the Schmitz. “This building is very important because it goes back to the beginning of this community, and it is so old compared to everything that’s left around it,” Rightmire said. “If this building could talk, it could literally tell you about all these things tourists who walk by take for granted.” For example, Rightmire said, strife in local government is not a new thing. The June 30,1882, issue of the Neu Braunfelser Zeitung, he said, carried a banner headline, "Bloodbath,!” over a brawl in the bar at the Schmitz where two factions of government fought it out and the sheriff hit one person over the head with his gun. “There’s just so much history here," Rightmire said, turning to someone who asked if his old postcards were originals or reproductions. "They’re original,” Rightmire said, laughing. “I collect anything I can from New Braunfels, and I research it. I want to make it sing and dance. I’m not happy just putting it on a shelf!” WOOD FLOORS mu SMTh. ft New 'l.\ n. CERAMIC TILE WAS SL2?S<|. Ft. Now .59( Sq. Ft. CARPET WAI It. NOW #69( Sq. Ft. LAMINATE FLOORS was 13.79 h Ft.

Sunday, December 4, 2005 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 9A Texas Marine among IO1 killed in Fallujah attack Jeremy Hunt, Martinez’s stepfather, said Martinez signed up for the Marines as a junior at Cleveland High School arid left for boot camp in 2003. “He met a Marine recruiter, and he saw the life of a Marine,” Hunt said. “He knew they were the best-trained and highly motivated branch of the United States military, and he always wanted to be with the best.” DAVID INGRAM/Herald-Zeitung Rogers Williams, left, busily places the special postmark on envelopes outside the Scnmitz Hotel.
