part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that runs projects designed to protect natural resources such as soil and rivers.
It is the agency that oversaw the Guadalupe River cleanup after the October 1998 flood.
Hornseth said the NRCS was asked when the project was designed to incorporate methods for bringing latecomers into the cleanup if they later wished.
“If someone who hasn’t still wants to sign up, they need to contact the city engineer or me,” Hornseth said.

Comal County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a man at the Guadalupe River early Monday. No details were released, but the man reportedly died at the base of the new Guadalupe River bridge on Spring Branch road just after midnight.
New Braunfels police are looking for a pair of young men who robbed a convenience store Friday night.

“Do you think Martin Luther King ever stopped learning? Do you think he ever said, ‘I know enough’?’
“No,” the students replied.
So they talked of their own dreams along that line — going to school, getting good grades, not dropping out.
Then they talked about what King meant to them.
Jeremy Sharpe said, “He changed things to where all the black people don’t have to sit in the back.”
When asked what King’s most important accomplishment was, Robert Morales said, “Helping people.”
And to Lexus Crayton, the importance of King?
“That one speech,” she said.
Down the street at Frazier Elementary, second graders in Diane Winkel-mann’s class read a King biography written at their reading level.
They also found out what a biography was.
“They’re doing their own biographies,” Winkelmann explained.
Then they talked about the “I Have a Dream” speech, tried writing dreams of their own on paper clouds, and made

In New Braunfels, District 4 City Council member Robert Kendrick Monday urged city residents who own riverfront property to sign on to the clean up if they haven’t already.
“I think it’s extremely unporta nt to get the word out,” he said.
Kendrick urged anyone who wishes to be involved with any of the city’s flooding cleanup efforts to call City Engineer Mike Short at 608-2100, ext. 224.
“They need to ensure their name is on the list,” Kendrick said.

A New Braunfels Police Department spokesman said the pair walked into the convenience store during the shift change and demanded money. One of the men had a handgun, police report.
They were last seen on foot, running toward Interstate 35 with an unreleased amount of cash. The robbery is not believed to be connected to a string of similar incidents late last year.

In each window was a persons face cut out of a magazine — each face was racially different.
The buses were placed on the walls of the hallway, traveling in one direction, with the clouds above them, representing children of all races having one thing
in common — dreams.
Winkelmann said that the kids were learning the power of dreams by learning how King’s dreams were realized by integration.
“Just like he was able to do things for the world, theres no reason they can’t,” Winkelmann said.

for the city and for all of the people who live anywhere near the Dry Comal Creek,” Cork said.
“Th be able to turn this from a suggestion to workers on the ground so quickly takes great cooperation between the county and the city. I’m glad we were able to accomplish it and I should really commend Ken Fiedler and the chamber’s Natural Resources Committee. This is a win for everyone involved.”
Rusty Brockman of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Inc., said the project was first suggested after the October 1998 flood, and then was raised again this past year by the Natural Resources Committee.
“Some of those folks have had this idea for a long time,” Brockman said. “We had committee members who jumped on it. We feel Uke we have a real winner here. What a great example of how the city, the county, the state and the chamber can all work together to achieve a worthwhile goal.”
Scheel said that what made the project come together was Jack Colley, the state’s coordinator for the Division of Emergency Management.
“I can’t say enough about how Jack Colley has supported this county during and after the July flood,” Scheel
said. “We talked about this project after the 1998 flood, but it was too large. We had no people or financial resources to do it.
“If we had to provide the labor for this operation, it would cost us millions of dollars,” Scheel said.
Colley took an interest in the project and recommended that the Kyle inmates be given the opportunity to do the job.
“He suggested it, and we said, ‘marvelous,’” Scheel said.
The Dry Comal Creek project is tied to a series of flood-control projects the city and county have been working on since the 1998 flood.
Scheel envisions a series of five flood-control dams in the Dry Comal and Guadalupe River watersheds he hopes will break the back of a future 500- or 100-year flood event.
“We have to keep working on this, especially with ‘100-year’ floods seeming to come along every four years,” the county judge said.
Cost estimates for till five of the flood-control projects run to $50 million. So far, the

— Danny Scheel County judge
Federal Emergency Management Agency has earmarked $4.5 million toward the first flood-control structure, which will be built on the Dry Comal near Solms.
The county is now working to acquire the property for that dam.
Monday, Scheel invited Dry Comal Creek property owners to attend the beginning of the project to talk about what would be done and see the inmate crews in action.
A number of property owners showed up.
Scheel said he needs permission to get the work done
on private property — and he needs it soon, now that the workers are here.
Rudy Seidel owns the creek bed property located between the LORA power plant on luanda Street and the Education Center, formerly New Braunfels High School, on Mill Street.
“It’ll help everybody along the creek and in the middle of town," he said.
“You see that stuff they’re piling up? Once that starts floating, it will build a dam somewhere and the water won’t be able to drain through it,” Seidel said.
How are we doing?
