Secret Service joins search for counterfeits
passing counterfeits,” O’Connor said. “In this case, store surveillance will help identify them.”
O’Connor advised that people take time to look at currency to avoid being victimized.
“It’s particularly important during tourist season when there are so many folks here from out-of-town,” O’Connor said.
“People, particularly merchants, need to keep their guard up.”
Marking pens that reveal counterfeit currency are available at office supply stores, O’Connor said.
This week’s incidents in Bulverde coincide with others in Boerne and Bandera involving bogus $100 bills, O’Connor said.
Jim McGettigan, Special Agent In Charge with the U.S. Secret Service in San Anto
nio, said he could not comment on specific cases. But the bills passed in Bulverde, he said, were consistent with common counterfeiting methods employed in South Texas.
"Pretty much specific to this region are computergenerated counterfeits, locally made on computer printers,” McGettigan said.
Other common forms of the illegal art here are “raised” bills — counterfeits created by adding an extra zero to a $10 to make it look like $100 — or bleaching the images off bills and printing new, higher denominations over them. The Secret Service also sees Columbian and Mexican-manufactured counterfeits in the area.
"Counterfeiting is a big issue with us here in San Antonio,” McGettigan said. “We work hand-in-hand with state and local authorities in regard to suppression of counterfeit currency. What we look first is to suppress manufacture. Then we aggressively work to arrest those who pass it.”

Free meals offered to children at Lone Star Elementary
Through the assistance of Texas Health and Human Services, the New Braunfels ISD school nutrition department will offer free meals at Lone Star Elementary this summer for all children ages I to 18.
“A child does not have to be eligible for the free or reduced-price school lunch program to be allowed to eat with us this summer,” said NBISD School Nutrition Director Scott Stephens. “We know that summer childcare costs and the sudden absence of school meals can put an additional monetary strain on families.”
Through July I, the Lone
Star Elementary cafeteria will be open for breakfast and lunch. Located at 2343 W. San Antonio St., breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.rn to 12:30 p.m.
“The Summer Food Service Program will help children maintain their nutritional status and their readiness to learn,” Stephens said. “To participate, show up.”
All meals will be served with milk, meat, fruits, vegetables and bread and will meet federal nutrition standards.
For information, call Stephens at (830) 627-6743.

Small plane crashes into home, causes fire
CONROE (AP) — A small plane crashed into a Montgomery County house Thursday, killing the pilot and engulfing the house in fire, officials said.
A Texas Department of Public Safety dispatcher said the body of the pilot was found at the crash site. It was not immediately known if
any other people were on the plane. No one was inside the home when the plane crashed.
Preliminary reports indicate the twin engine plane crashed into the home before 3:50 p.m., causing the fire, said John Clabes, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman.
The house is near the Montgomery County Airport, Clabes said.
Conroe Fire Department officials said the crash happened shortly after takeoff from the airport.
The plane was not under air traffic control and there was no radio contact with the pilot, Clabes said.
about their concerns on a wide range of issues.
“And it is an opportunity to report to those I represent on my initiatives in Washington.” Smith has been busy this session, serving as chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Internet and Intellectual Property and as a senior member of the committees on judiciary, science, homeland security and standards of official conduct.
