Twenty boats to be in Canyon Lake parade
By DAVID DEKUNDER
The anticipation is building up for j the 13th Annual Christmas Parade of I Lights on Canyon Lake on Saturday night.
Charlie Teat, past commodore of the Texas Yacht Club, said he is ready for the early holiday celebration of festive decorated boats to begin.
“Everything is on schedule,” Teat said. “The last count I had was 22 (boats) entered. We will probably end up in the 20 to 25 range.”
Organizers had hoped for 50 boats to be entered, but Teat said that will not take the fun away from the event.
The flotilla of Yuletide boats will
leave near Crane’s Mill Park at 6 p.m.
Canyon Lake residents and visitors will be able to see the Christmas flotilla light up the lake from their homes and observation points and enjoy the beauty of the lighted up boats.
The parade will proceed to Canyon Dam, where a panel of judges will judge the best decorated boats. Prizes will be given away for the best decorated boats.
After the judging is over, the parade route will proceed to the Canyon Lake Marina, where the parade will end at 9:30 p.m. An awards ceremony and party will be held at the marina after the parade is over.

of friends over there,” said Brugmann. “I didn’t expect anything that bad until it was all over.
“But it was a good ship after all. She took it like a lady. We took her to the shipyard and overhauled her.” Brugmann said the injuries he suffered at Pearl Harbor were emotional, and it took him several years to get over it.
He said he didn’t like to talk about it much today, but once a year he gets “moody and starts remembering.”
’’You can’t think about the past all the time .... It’s done and it’s gone. I just forget about it, except this time of year reminds mc,” he said. “I think about all those shipmates that are
gone. I wonder where the others are and what they’re doing today.” However, Brugmann said he did not regret the lifetime he spent in the military.
“I was very proud of the service and very proud of the Navy and I’m still gung ho about the military service,” Brugmann said. “In fact, I wish I could still stay in there.”
But, despite his eagerness to serve, Brugmann will spend tomorrow remembering that day 55 years ago, and the friends he lost there. Remembering is all he asks of local residents as well.
“I want people to remember that day. It’s an important day to mc, and it was the beginning for the war .... There will never be another day like that.”

part of an attempt to satisfy requirements of an investigation by the Texas Department of Transportation Aviation Department, which gave the city until Dec. 20 to rid the airport of exclusionary contracts at the airport or turn over ownership of the 900-acre land and reimburse a $874,616 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The city obtained ownership of the airport from the federal government in 1969 with the condition that it maintain a policy of competition for airport services and leases. TxDOT officials have said the current exclusionary clause in Harriss’ leases are in violation of FAA regulations.
TxDOT investigator Jim Cummins responded with a written statement that his office was not aware of the eviction notice but that measure alone would not ensure that the city is in compliance.
However, the statement indicated that TxDOT is pleased with the city’s efforts so far.
City officials said the eviction is another step in the process of complying with TxDOT’s request.
Harriss has two leases with the city and also has a sublease with New Braunfels Aero, whose 1970 contract with the city includes most of the airport land.
New Braunfels Aero leased its land to Engine Components Inc. of San Antonio, which ii? turn leased most of its land to Harriss. City officials said they are in mediation with ECI and New Braunfels Aero to remove the exclusionary clauses in Harriss’ contracts.
Bill Cassel, president of Cas-Air Aviation, filed the original complaint on March 15 to TxDOT. Cassel has a lease with ECI for one hangar, which prohibits him from selling aviation fuel at the airport.

Schmid said the tangled reins sent conflicting signals to the horses on what they were supposed to do.
“When I was pulling the inside rein I was actually pulling him (horse) forward, when I was pulling the outside rein I was outline him backward,” Schmid said. “Whenever I pulled the horses, I was pulling them in the wrong directions.” Schmid said the horses finally ran out of gas a half a mile down San Antonio Street and slowed down to a
