Austin Shakespeare acts out ‘World’s Fastest Hamlet’ at Canyon High Thursday
From staff reports
Anyone who ever thought the works of William Shakespeare were boring certainly got a culture shock Thursday morning at Canyon High School’s Performing Arts Center.
The Austin Shakespeare troupe performed "The World s Fastest I lamlet" by Tom Stoppard. Under the direction of Ann Ciccolella, the actors first performed the play in 15 minutes, acting through an ultraturbo version in 2 minutes and another in 10 seconds.
The group performed during first through third periods in which the entire student Ixxiy was able to watch.
“It was fantastic,” sophomore Lauren Bush said. “I really enjoyed it. It was a very unique show. It must be amazing to get to do this for a living every day.”
After the show, Austin Shake-speare members answered students’ questions, which included a query about the kind of
education one needs to become a professional actor and another about how long the actors have had a passion for the theater.
"It’s an honor to he able to teach kids of all ages like this about Shakespeare,” said Kimberley Adams, who played Queen Gertrude, Ophelia and I iamlet’s ghost during the pro-duction. “They are lucky to have such a beautiful theater.” Theater teacher April Cox said it was wonderful for so many students to he able to experience Shakespeare.
“Oh my gosh, we re thrilled,” Cox said. “Some of these kids have never been exposed to theater. It’s such a great opportunity for us.”
Academic dean Aryn Stande-ford agreed.
"It was a great way to be able to support our English curriculum and to showcase our new performing arts center,” Standeford said. “I hope seeing this will spark some of our students to get into theater or writing.”

Two burglars make off with dozens of cigarette cartons
By J. Louise Larson
Corner stores attracted criminals in Comal County, and the most popular booty of all seems to be cigarettes.
Around 4 a.m. Thursday, two suspects forced entry into Luke's Chevron gas station at 30115 U.S. Hwy. 281 North in Bulverde.
“The two suspects in this burglary stole approximately $3,400 worth of cigarettes and some cash,” a Bulverde Mice Department spokesman said.
“The suspects where wearing ail black including face mask and gloves. They arrived and drove off in a silver colored mini-van.”
Bulverde police are reviewing the store’s security video and comparing this incident with others in the surrounding area. Cigarettes were on the list at three recent rob-

beries in New Braunfels.
Around 2:46 a.m. March 1, Park Place Foods in the 1200 block of West San Antonio St., New Braunfels, was burglarized.
“There were some cigarettes that were stolen. A burglar broke the glass on the door and ran and grabbed cigarettes,” said Lt. Michael Penshorn of New Braunfels Police Department.
The suspect is identified as a heavyset male wearing a ski mask, gloves and a heavy coat.
Early in the morning of Feb. 8, two males broke into Park Place Foods and stole an estimated $2,700 worth of ciga-
Officials look for woman who tried to rob Tiger Tote
By J. Louise Larson
Authorities are looking for a woman who attempted armed robbery of Tiger Tote early Thursday in New Braunfels.
At 1:42 a.m., New Braunfels Police Department officers responded to the gas station at 957 Loop 337 in reference to a robbery that had just occurred.
"Initial investigation indicates that a Hispanic female entered the store and walked behind the counter. Once behind the counter, the female threatened that
she had a weapon and demanded money from the clerk,” Lt. J. Pullen said.
The suspect did not obtain any money or property and fled the store prior to the officers’ arrival, he said.
"This case remains under investigation and any additional information will be released as it develops. Anyone with information in regards to this incident is urged to contact the New Braunfels Police Department at (830) 221-4100 or Crime Stoppers at (830) 620-T1PS (8477) to remain anonymous,” Pullen said.
rettes. At about 3:33 a.m. on Feb. 5, two subjects broke into the Pit Stop at 1015 South Seguin, Penshorn said.
“They just pried the door open,” he said, noting the suspects took between 60 and 75 cartons of cigarettes.
Cigarettes are popular theft items — portable, lightweight, relatively expensive for their size, resellable.
Cases of beer are a popular corner store shoplifting item — every few weeks or so, the police department will get a call for a grab-and-run, where someone has grabbed a case of beer and left without paying for it during business hours.
Burglary of a building with items stolen that are valued between $1,500 and $20,000 would typically be a state jail felony, Penshorn said.
The incidents are under investigation.
SAN MARCOS HOSPITAL CLOSING PROGRAMS BECAUSE OF MEDICARE FUNDING CUTS

Continuing cuts in Medicare and other insurance providers’ reimbursements for outpatient behavioral health care have created annual losses for CTMC in these two programs in excess of $600,000 over the past two years, hospital officials said.
