that county animal control officers leave the cats alone because “they have suffered enough.”
Animal control officer Olen Elliott said he is planning to continue feeding the 20 or more cats remaining at the property. He said once Robert Giese is taken into custody, he will collect the cats.
Eleven cats found at the home along with the dog and one horse will be auctioned Wednesday at the Creek View Veterinary Clinic at 1121 Eikel. Doherty said the animals are recovering well from their ordeal.
“I think this makes kind of a nice twist to the story," Elliott said. He said the funds collected at the sale will offset the expense of boarding the animals for the past week. Elliott said that while so much of his Job involves collecting animals to be destroyed later, he will be glad to see these animals find homes.

business in New Braunfels for seven years.
Businessman and council member at-large candidate Bob Pacharzina said council has better things to do than worry about location and regulation of portable signs. “To outlaw portable signs, which is the best means of advertising I have, is overstepping your bounds. I don’t understand why we’re telling somebody they can’t do business here.”
Joe Couch, a landscape architect and chairman of the first council appointed advisory committee that proposed a draft late last year that was rejected by council following public controversy, said, “The new proposal is very brief but, in this case, brevity is no virtue. I recommend we look at doing away with language that allows signs on both sides of a highway or the interstate will get taken up by signs. (This ordinance) is very shortsighted. It is the council’s duty to perform long-range planning. ” Couch also said he would like for sections pertaining to on-premise signs be broken down into various zoning repons. “It is very difficult to have one set of ordinances for the various zoning areas, ” Couch said.
While many said staff’s version was a good compromise of the oripnal draft, Davis Jackson countered the notion that any compromise ever existed, calling the idea a “myth.”
“This ordinance is not a compromise. A leptimate compromise involves two sets of willing participants in voluntary negotiations with both sides expecting to gain
from the transaction. But this sign ordinance has never had two sets of willing participants, the negotiations have never been voluntary and businesses and property owners have never had anything to gain from the sign ordinance,” Jackson said.
Another council member at-large candidate, Dennis Rhoads, said that unless council made some changes in its policy towards portable signs, it probably could expect to see “a rush of portable signs put on property, left blank, and their owners afraid to take them down thinking, ‘Hey, I might need that sign next year,’ ” he said.
Rhoads also expressed concern with the ordinance's stipulation that only one free-standing sign be allowed under on-premise regulations with no considerations granted for street frontage.
Planning Director Mike Shands, instrumental in staff's preparation of the ordinance, answered several audience and speaker questions. Some of the points made were that, in the case that a non-conforming off-premise sign is damaged, he would act as arbitrator and would rule on the submission of the sign’s owner if it could be repaired for less than 50 percent of replacement cost. According to the ordinance as written, a repair estimate more than the 50 percent cutoff would mean the sign would have to be removed permenently.
Some also had concerns about permits for on-premise signs and Shands said the only time permits would be required would be is if changes in the configuration or face size of such signs were to be changed. None would be needed for repainting or lettering alone.

“It didn't go very high, it just turned over. I hollered at people to get away because smoke was pouring out. The people inside got out real fast,” McPhail said. None of the witnesses reported sighting any flames coming from the damaged craft.

HUNTSVILLE (AP) - A flimsy oak veneer chair bought from a New Mexico roadside show and dubbed toe “Texas Thunderbolt” may have been Texas’ first electric chair, a Colorado author says.
lf the chair is proved authentic, it could predate the infamous “Old Sparky," an oak chair that put 361 men to death from 1994 to 1964.
The find has startled some historians, who have believed “Old Sparky," with its straps and electrodes, was the state's first death chair.
Charlie Angermeyer. a Denver author, said the man who bought the
chair hired him to check his theory that the chair was genuine. The owner, a Colorado philanthropist, realtor and history buff, has requested anonymity, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.
Angermeyer is offering a reward for old pictures that would prove the existence of the other chair and the authenticity of the find.
The owner had bought the electric chair from a roadside tourist exhibit in New Mexico after answering a newspaper advertisement that said, “For Sale: Electric Chair,” Angermeyer said. Stains and bum

marks on the chair convinced him it was worth the $800 asking price.
According to the show’s owners, the chair was purchased in Amarillo at a 1970 auction and believed to be an execution chair from Michigan. Michigan authorities refuted that claim.
Angermeyer said he contacted the 26 states in which there have been executions and received letters and pictures from all bi* six.
Robert Pierce, coordinator of the Texas Prison Archives, was stunned when Angermeyer told him about the find.
“We haven’t found any evidence that proves there weren't two chairs.” Pierce said after much research.
Angermeyer said early newqiapor accounts refer to the midnight Justice meted out by the “Texas Thunderbolt.” He said the chair began service Feb. 8.1924, and was not replaced by “Old Sparky” until more than six years later.

PHOTOGRAPHING THE BALL1T CLASS Thu basic nood of indoor photography of this typo is to got • foot enough shutter speed to stop motion. Use a 400 or 1000-speed film, with the lens set to its widest aperture. Adjust the shutter speed for a good exposure reading, lf it is lower them/125th sec., usee support such es a tripod. Uses long lens. like an 60-200MM zoom aet et 200MM for closeups of faces, feet, end honda and to isolate one dancer from the group Use the 80MM setting for couples or single dancers. To minimizemotion. wait for the pauses in action before you shoot. You might also try a1/15th sec. shutter speed with the camera on a tripod to show swirling motion of the dance.
The normal or wide angle lens is good for showing the whole class. You will have greater depth of focus with these lens, so you cen shoot down the whole row of dancers and have many of them in focus et once. Color is always a problem with available light, to you should be careful of good exposure to get the beet out of your prints. Need accessories for that ballet session?
