feed,” Galloway said. “I easily spend $80 per week just on feed.” The livestock show hands down prize money based on a point system, which allows the money to be distributed evenly among contestants whose animals were awarded the same ribbons.
; Last year’s stock sale brought in more than $500,000 for participating students “The guys who buy here are such good guys,” said Bill Smith, whose two daughters, Erin and Catlin, raise livestock for the shows. “What they do for the kids is amazing.”
For these students, a big win does not mean a whirlwind shopping spree or a dream vacation.
“Ten percent of what they win goes to whatever they want to
spend it on,” Smith said. “And the rest goes to buying more animals and for college.”
Smith said that most people do not realize the caliber of students involved in the FFA and 4-H programs.
“Some people think Ag kids — duh,” Smith said. “But we’ve got some high-dollar scholars. You’d be surprised what all these kids do. My daughter’s in (National Honor Society), she volunteers and shows hogs. She’s never home — she’s always in a bam somewhere or helping somebody else out.”
Wehe, who works after school at the Guadalupe Valley Telephone Company, is a valedictorian contender at his high school and already has saved $6,000 for his education.
Time to wash and press your greens — clothes that is — in preparation for Friday. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all us Irish-Americans.
On March 9, the Canyon Lake Women in Business installed 2000-2001 officers at its monthly meeting. Taking the helm as president is Diane Dasher, replacing Debbie Drum. Drum will remain as immediate past-president.
First vice-president is Linda Runyan. She will be on deck for the presidency in 2001-2002. Betty Neumeyer is this year’s second vice-president; Beverly Fujimoto, secretary; and Elouise Lewis, treasurer.
CLWIB meets the second Thursday of each month and is always open to new members. To
join, or for information, call Diane Dasher, 899-4642.

The Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce Business Expo in the Hills, scheduled for Saturday, March ll, was cancelled. M.J. Fuller, executive director, said the chamber member cancelled the event due to calendar conflicts.
Tonight is the chamber’s monthly mixer, 6 p.m., at Coldwell Banker/D’Ann Harper Realty, Farm-to-Market Road 3159, just south of Frank’s Supermarket. For information, contact the chamber, 964-2223.
Two weeks ago an early morning fire destroyed the home of Kittie Sisson in Canyon Lake Hills.
Neighbors rescued Sisson from
the home, but the fire took all else including Sisson’s car.
Canyon Lake Fire units responded to the first call at 6:09 a.m., and were assisted by Spring Branch Volunteer Fire Department and New Braunfels Fire and Rescue.
Individuals wishing to assist; Sisson may bring donations to the Canyon Lake Animal Shelter Society office across from Startz Cafe in Startzville or Canyon Animal Clinic in Sattler.
Only the streets and drainage proposition was supported by an overwhelming majority — 90 percent.
The police communication system was supported by 73 percent of respondents, and the fire department proposition was supported by nearly 70 percent.
These types of percentages could give good indicators of the election outcome, chamber president Michael Meek said.
Hodgkin agreed, saying overwhelming consensus on those propositions could have an influence on the vote, although probably not a lot.
“Endorsements have a marginal impact,” he said. “But it can make a difference in a close race.”
Officially, the chamber only has endorsed Prop. I and hasn’t made decisions on the other six.
“The board may want to take another look at this,” Meek said. “Or they may just want to report it as promised and leave it at that.”
Although Prop. 2 and 3 received a large majority vote, the chamber’s

department improvements and
master plan committee did not rank these as high priorities, he said.
The board of directors will discuss survey results at its March 20 meeting but probably won’t endorse Prop. 4 through 7, he said.
“Propositions 4 through 7 are toss
ups,” Meek said. “There’s nothing you could call a consensus.” Forty-nine percent of respondents supported the sports complex, nearly 42 percent supported the activity center and 59 percent supported widening Walnut.
This is an indication that chamber members are diverse like the community, Meek said.
Hodgkin said, “If the business community is divided on a issue, that’s not a strong cue. That’s not going to help (the public) make up its mind.”
That’s fine with several residents. Carolyn Burrow is one of several residents opposed to the Walnut project, supported by 59 percent of survey respondents.
Widening Walnut is a pro-business proposition, she said.
“I think the vote is skewed because it’s the business community,” she said. “The average person on the street think it’s a waste of money and that it’s not a solution.” Krueger, a supporter of the sports complex and activity center, agreed the chamber wasn’t representative of the entire community.
“We have a lot of parents that aren’t involved in the chamber,” she said, “not because they’re against the chamber but just because they have other things to do.”
Krueger said she was pleased by

A great place to cut energy costs?
Yes! PEC offers the following tips on how you can cut energy use — and costs — in the kitchen. ■ Use small electric appliances or toaster ovens for small meals rather than your large stove or oven. A toaster oven uses one-third to one-half the energy of a regular oven. ■ Use pressure cookers and microwave ovens whenever convenient. They save energy by reducing cooking time. ■ When cooking with electricity, turn off the range and/or oven several minutes before the food is done. The heating element stays hot long enough to finish the job without using more electricity. ■ Wondering why PEC is offering these tips?
It’s simple, really. Using electricity efficiently is a great recipe for lower bills. Call PEC’s Conservation Department at (512) 219-2613 for more energy-saving information.

the survey results. If either the sports complex or activity center had been defeated by a large percentage of the respondents, she would have been “worried,” she said.
New Braunfels Youth Sports president Mike Mullins agreed. “Considering that we haven’t done any promotion, I saw (the outcome) as positive,” he said.
But the survey results pose a challenge to NBYS, a driving force behind the projects, Krueger said.
“We needed to see how much work we had left to do,” she said.
