Kerry’s comeback blew the nomination fight wide open, setting the stage for a free-for-all in New Hampshire’s primary. Dean finished third, stripped of his front-runner’s mande but still defiant — “We will not give up,” he told backers. Rep. Dick Gephardt finished a weak fourth and planned to end his 33-year political career by pulling out of the race. I Iis campaign given up for dead just weeks ago, Kerry predicted another comeback in New I lampshire’s Jan. 27 primary. “As I’ve said in New Hamp shire and here, I’m a fighter," the Massachusetts lawmaker told The Associated Press. “I’ve come from behind before and I’m going to take the same fight that I’ve been making here to New Hampshire."

Sunday evening, about 300 members of the local artistic community attended the annual celebration of themselves in the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council's 24th annual “Dinner With The Arts.” Arts Council President Veronica Sarkozi opened the evening, themed “Art is the Answer,” by asking those in the audience, in words penned by Circle Arts Theatre Director Elizabeth Elliott nearly a decade ago, to “resolve to be artistic.” “Don’t panic,” Sarkozi said. “I'm not suggesting you take up the violin, but filling your ears with its sounds can’t hurt. The arts council, Sarkozi told those assembled, began in 1980 as a four- member organization whose goal was to encourage and develop local arts and to enrich the community through their promotion. “And, of course, its still the same,’ Sarkozi said. Although now the arts council’s membership numbers IO agencies. Vice President Cathy (Jark presented the council’s Annual Award to Wayne Babe for his support of the arts, including work in gaining funding and approvals of the murals on (Pastel! and Seguin avenues— with more to come. Also recognized with “Emeritus Awards” for years of service were Rosa Linda De La Cerda, Toby Lohr and Anita Windecker. Diners enjoyed a dessert serenade by eight members of the Unicorn Vocal Jazz directed by Ryan Van Antwerp. The program, “Art is the Answer,” was a musical written in two acts by Elliott, staged and choreographed by Robin Williams. Barbara Houde accompanied the production on piano; Julia Gremmer played violin on Sonata #3 in T Major, Adagio and Allegro. Sunday was the first time Gremmer, 14, had performed for the dinner with the arts program. “I’ve played at a lot of events where people come and go constantly," Gremmer said. “But that was one of the biggest.” Was site nervous? Maybe just a little before the program started, she said. “ The enthusiasm of the other performers and the crowd made it a lot of fun,” said Gremmer, whose father, Spencer, is a classical guitarist. “Once I start playing, I get into the music and I’m fine.” ART IS THC ANSWER The member organizations of The Greater New Braunfels Arts Council are: ■ Circle Arts Theatre B Comal Community Band ■ German American Society ll Hill Country Chorus ■ Mid Texas Symphony ■ New Braunfels Art League ■ New Braunfels Historic Outdoor Art Gallery ■ New Braunfels Music Study Club ■ New Braunfels Theatre Company ■ STAGE IncKohl’s files permit for $3.IM renovation of K-Mart store By Dylan Jimenez Staff Writer Kohl’s Department Stores wants to spend $3 million to renovate the former K-Mart store in New Braunfels. Kohl s applied Friday for a permit with the City of New Braunfels building department to spend $3.1 million on improvements to the interior and facade of the building. The building has been empty since K mart closed the local outlet in the spring of 2002. In April 2003, Kohl s leased the K-Mart building, just weeks after opening three stores in San Antonio, including one at the Forum in live Oak. Since then the company has reported satisfactory success at those locations, but would not confirm a move to New Braunfels. Even though there are Kohl’s stores nearby, Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Inc. President Michael Meek said the company would find plenty of business here. A retail study recently performed for the city shows a need for department stores like Kohls in New Braunfels. “Somebody like Kohl’s fills lots of different niches,” Meek said. Meek added the $3 million renovation would probably help fill the closed Luby’s located nearby. Kohl s officials could not he reached Monday.
