(Photo bv Annates Schlickenrieder) Fountain Motel fills bill By ROBERT STEWART Signwriter A country-western recording artist was in New Braunfels Monday and Tuesday filming a music video for her next single. Kelly Willis of Austin was filming a video at the Fountain Motel at Highway 81 and Loop 337 for her next single “The Hcan That Love Forget.” "The video will probably be out in mid-July on HMN, CMT and VU-1," Mark Lindquist, director of the video, said. TNN is the Nashville Network, CMT is Country Music Television andVH-1 is Video Hits-One “We chose this hotel because we were looking for a place with wood paneling, a U-shaped courtyard and a pool.” Lindquist said. “It’s hard to find wood paneling these days ” Lindquist is from Los Angeles while most of the crew is from Austin. He said that Willis came up with the idea for the video which is an adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s "Rear Window ” In it, two undercover cops are staking out some crooks in a room across the counyard. "I mistakenly get the room next to the police where they have pit in a two-way mirror, ’ Willis said. "They had expected the crooks to be in that room.” The police end up watching her in the next room and let the crooks get away. she said. Willis plays live in Austin at clubs like the Continental Club and the Hole In The Wall. Her band is known as “Kelly Willis and Radio Ranch.” Willis said that her new single has beer getting some airplay on KGSR 107 FM. which can be heard in New Braunfels.

New CED chooses CISD leadership "I think there will be a lot of ‘no’ votes on that one,” Robinette said. The board also decided to contract with the Comal Independent School District and the New Brauniels Independent School District to utilize their current tax collection procedures in collecting Comal County Educauon Dis mc i taxes. “The CED is basically an independent school district,” Abel Campos, CISD business manager said. “The only difference is that the CED has limited taxing authority. All laws thai apply to a school district apply to the CED.” Campos was referring to the fact that the CED must solicit bids and. in future years, contract for delinquent tax coliecuon just like a school district does. The CED board approved sohcila-uon of bids for a depository contract. This needs lo be done in a timely manner, Campos said. as a depository contract needs lo be approved before any funds can be collected by the CED and disui bu ted to the NHI SD and S«« CBD, Raga 2 By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer The Comal County Education District Board of Trustees held its First meeting Tuesday night and selected Comal Independent School District lo administer affairs of the CED.
