A 3-year-old boy confesses to starting a fire at 243 S. Mesquite St. Fire Marshal Elroy Friesenhahn said the boy was playing with his grandmother's cigarette lighter in the upstairs bedroom of the house when the fire broke out. The house belongs to Delia Morales. No one was injured in the fire and firefighters extinguished the flames during the early stages, Friesenhahn said. Damage to the house was set at $6,000. Friesenhahn
said Felipe Delgado of Cotulla reported the fire when he arrived at the house and saw smoke coming out of the upstairs. Delgado's wife and son were visiting his mother-in-law in the house when the fire broke out. Freisenhahn said the fire started on a dresser where several flammable cosmetics were stored. The fire marshal said the child's curiosity about fire is perfectly natural.

The New Braunfels 1SD school board is taking a hard stand on drugs and local students are bearing the brunt of the fight.
Since the Texas Legislature changed House Bill 72 restrictions prohibiting expelling students, NBISD’s board has removed nine students from local campuses. Seven of those students were expelled for drug related offenses.
Of the nine students expelled since October, seven were middle school students and two were In high school. Those numbers include four middle school students expelled Jan. 19 for possession or distribution of marijuana. Two 12-year-old girls were among those expelled Jan. 19 None of the expelled students will be allowed back to school until the summer session begins.
“We made it very clear to students that we would not allow any alcohol or drugs on campus,” said Bob Self, NBISD board president. He added that violators of that restriction
stand a good chance of being removed from school for the remainder of
“We’re not so naive to think that we’re going to eliminate it or make (students) not take drugs or alcohol,” he said. “But we aren’t going to stand for it in our schools...We’ve got more than the one student involved (in any offense), we’ve got to look out for the balance of the student body.”
Self said sending violators to the Teen Connection alternative school was not allowed because It would not be a serious punishment. “That’s no penalty at all,” he said. “You have to realize they’re going to have to be responsible for their actions sooner or later. We need to impress that on them when they’re very young...They’re not going to get a slap on the wrist by New Braunfels Independent School District.”
Under the original HB 72 provision, the school board was not allowed to expel students until they had Ant been transferred to an alternative

Corridor Council alive, well in economic slump
By SARAH DUKE Staff Writer
The executive director of the Greater Austin-San Antonio Corridor Council said Monday that the council is alive and well The current economic slump does not mean the end of the council, he said.
“We’re still doing what we have been doing.” said Paul Edwards, the council’s top executive director. ’’We’re getting membership renewals and we’re still economically viable. . . No body thought we were going to be a two or throe year thing when we etartad and no body's giving up on us now.”
Edwards remarks come after more than a year of a decline in economic development in the corridor ama. He said that although growth in tho ama is down, ho expects it to turn around and warns that reports of tho council’s death tie greatly exaggerated.
The New Braunfels Oty Council voted recently not to renew its membership In the council. That membership expires in June, Edwards said. The city’s dues total $3,000 annually.
Last week, the New Braunfels Utilities 1ms rd of directors derided to root tour gMRjtaWhta In the council but to scrutinize the benefits of the organisation before rtpydwg next year. NBU's annual dues am $1,000
Tom Purdum, executive director of the New Braunfels Chambor of Com-mere#, said his organization will soon ba facing a decision of whether to continuo membership in the council. He said ha han't given the
"They've gong some direct tilings that have been a benefit, but I think it's impossible to put a price tog on those benefits. I feel the committee involved didn't do what it should de to bring the communities into the decision-melting precess."

“To begin with I think that the fact that we've gotten together Ie durn
this area has ben important." Purdum pointed to the ISM visit by delegstlon of Japanese businessman to the Austin-San Antonio ares ss one of the triumphs of the council.
“They’ve done some direct things that have been a benefit but I think it’s impossible to put a price tag n those benefits," Purdum said. The chamber spokesman added that ha was not satisfied with the way the corridor council handled a proposal to build a parkway linking Austin and San Antonio east of Interstate 36.
“I feel the committee involved didn’t do what it should to bring the communities into the decisionmaking process," he said. The Texas Department of Highways and Public Transportation has Initiated a study to dotermine a route for a proposed highway connecting Austin and San Antonio. The highway would bypast New Braunfels and run from Georgetown south through Guadalupe to iNtpidf 18

Ocularly in Japan, as a place that people look at as a place for investing.” Edwards said. “When we started, no one in Japan knew where we were.” he added. Since the corridor council’s creation, this area has become well-know among Japanese businessmen.
Edwards added that he thinks the smaller cities in the corridor ares will recover from the current economic slump quicker than Austin or San Antonio. He added that, since one new business could dramatically affect the economy of New Braunfels or San Marcos, the larger cities will have a harder time developing economically.
