A smoking ban at the Comal County jail is in its second day. Sheriff Jack Bremer imposed the ban to clean the jail and create a smoke-free environment. “I ordered it — there will be no more smoking,” said Bremer, who took office Jan. I. “Inmates historically just throw their cigarette bulls on the floor and stomp on them — it’s always dirty. I’m going to clean up that jail and it’s going to stay clean. “I have good justifiable reason for it.” Guards can smoke if they go outside. Jail Administrator Brian John said the transition has been easy for the inmates and there have been few complaints. “There’s no smoking allowed in the jail facility either by inmates or (guards),” he said. “We didn’t just stop all of a sudden.” Jailers and inmates were first notified of the ban Jan. 31, John said. On Feb. I, non-smoking areas were designated. And on Feb. 14 cigarettes, matches and other tobacco products were no longer sold at the commissary. “Actually, in reality, they probably quit way back on Feb. 14,” John said. “In fact, since Feb. 14 they really See BAN, Page 2 Police question juvenile prowling around school A 16 year-old boy, apprehended by police Wednesday night, could be responsible for the third break-in at the Lone Star School in the past three weeks, police say.

In a telegram sent Wednesday to Vice President Dan Quayle, LULAC president Jose Garcia de Lara said that further delay on the matter may jeopardize the integrity of the nation’s defense systems. “We’re endorsing the confirmation for (former U.S.) Sen. Tower as secretary of defense because our primary concern is the defense of our country against foreign inva sion,” Dc Lara said in an interview. “Hispanics are fiercely patriotic and we shed blood to defend this country, and we will let our opinions be known,” De Lara said. “We will stick by the recommendation of’ President Bush. Tower is clearly the best person to head the defense department, despite allegations of lower’s excessive drinking, the LULAC leader said. “Those arc just allegations. The essence here is the defense of our country,” de Lara said. Swan song This Black Australian Swan and his mate, along with a pair of White Mute Swans, were released into Landa Lake this morning.

State Rep. Ron Wilson this week sent a bill to a subcommittee of the House Public Education Committee to extend the school year from 175 days to 204 days. “We would love to have students in school for a longer period,” said Dr. Aden Tiekcn, Comal Independent School District personnel director. “The big problem is whether the bill includes funding. We couldn’t possib ly afford to add 29 days without funding,” he said. Wilson and members of the House Public Education Committee said Texas school children will someday compete against those from other countries who attend school year-round.
