More than 36,000 flu deaths possible
Some experts predict this year’s death toll easily could surpass the annual average of 36,000 flu deaths.
In November 2002,34 cases of flu were reported in Comal County. Those numbers are up to 356cases in November2003.
In December 2002, 97 flu lases were reported here. In just the first two weeks of December 2003 312 county residents have been reported to have flu.
Clinic officials have reordered the vaccine three times this year. Replenishment is unlikely because supplies are low everywhere.
Nationwide, officials must have underestimated the amount of demand this year, Preiss said.
The county clinic has hundreds on the waiting list for

the vaccine. The little vaccine left will be given to high-risk people.
Preiss said the alternative to the vaccine is a nasal spray, which is both expensive and rare.
“People just need to be real smart,” Preiss said. “Doing those things can protect you quite a bit.”

No monument ever was erected
“It really sucks you in,” she said.
The research led Thompson to the Galle’s ancestors—New Braunfels founding families Heim and Arnold.
Thompson also discovered that Galle’s parents stopped speaking of Milton soon after word came back that he was presumed dead.
Unwilling to acknowledge the fact that he might be dead, Galle’s family never erected a monument in his name.
His mother stopped talking about him and pulled down pictures of him.
To this day, long after Milton’s parents died, he is the only one of the explorers not remembered with a monument.
“Milton was definitely a puzzle,” Niven said of developing his character in the book. “Even in his own family, few know about him.”
After discovering his journal and tons of letters from Milton, Niven had a picture

of his personality. He was funny, she concluded.
“Milton was so fun and funny and had such a great spirit,” Niven said. “So much of what happened out in the Arctic was so serious. He provided comic relief.”
Thompson’s and Nivens exploration into the lives of Galle left them with a fond-
Suicide bombers strike from furniture truck
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Three suicide bombers in a furniture truck blew themselves up at the gates of a U.S. Army base Thursday, killing one soldier and wounding 14. It was the third suicide attack on American troops in Iraq this week.
Three wounded soldiers were evacuated from the headquarters of the 82nd Airborne Division west of Baghdad to a combat hospital and the other 11 wounded were treated and returned to duty, the U.S. military reported.
There were no U.S. fatalities in the previous two suicide attacks this week, indicating defenses erected at

Now that the research is done, Niven said, she misses the discovery.
“The instinct is to keep researching even though the book is already in the store,” Niven said. "You feel like separated from some of your friends.”
The sense of discovery is
what her book was all about.
Niven often considers whether Galle would have ventured into the Arctic if he knew what his fate would be.
Niven thinks he would do it again. He left to seek adventure, she said.
He found one.
“While he was there he had a wonderful time,” she said.
American facilities were paying off.
Early Friday, three loud explosions boomed in the "Green Zone,” the compound housing the headquarters of the U.S.-led coalition, in central Baghdad.
A condition spokesman said two projectiles hit "in the vicinity of the Green Zone,” causing minor damage to one building but no casualties. He couldn’t confirm whether the building was in the zone. Insurgents last month targeted the compound with mortars.
It would be the first time in several weeks that the seat of power of the U.S.-led coalition power was hit.
