►Crimes of the week
A person or persons entered the secured property of the Lomas Construction Company, located at 9384 Schoenthal Road, near Garden Ridge. Ignoring a locked gate, vandals attempted to set on fire two trucks on that site. Some damage was incurred, but the road flares they used failed to ignite the vehicles.
This incident occurred between Monday, Dec. 30, 2002, and Saturday, Jan. 4. ■ ■■
A trailer home used for storage was burglarized in the 3600 block of Hunter Road between Jan. 4 and 5.
Crooks made off with several .22-caliber rifles and BB guns, a 27-inch Sony color TV, two Civil War swords and a red two-seater go cart.
Overnight Jan. 12 and 13, someone entered a storage shed in the 3100 block of Hunter Road and took a transit and tripod along with various tools.
The owner of the shed reported that several weeks prior, he discovered a white male going through the shed. The subject left the scene in an early ’80s model blue Chevrolet pickup truck with a camper shell.
Comal County Sheriff’s investigators are working these cases, but could use help. Anyone who saw anything suspicious, or the vehicle described above, in the area noted, should call CCSO at (830) 620-3400, or 885-4883.

Special to the Herald-Zeitung
Circle Arts Theatre celebrates the opening of its 35th season with John Patrick’s timeless comedy-drama, “The Curious Savage,” beginning Feb. 6 with a champagne party following the performance.
The story involves an eccentric widow, in her mid-60s, who believes in giving money away to people who need their “foolish dreams” fulfilled. Her selfish stepchildren have other ideas for the money, and so they have her committed to a sanitorium “to bring her to her senses.” The humor of the show evolves from Ethel Savage’s ability to relate to the residents, who are not fully based in reality while she, herself, is quite sane.
Playing the title role will be Pat Ruhl, last seen as the pushy neighbor in “Run for Your Wife.” In the roles of the greedy stepchildren, are Gary Pemberton as Sen. Titus Sav-age and Eileen Cole as socialite Isabelle Savage. The residents of ‘The Cloisters”
