NBHS Student Council helps with spring repairs
By JASON FRIESENHAHN
Special to the Herald-Zeitung
The time has once again come when home owners open up their garages and begin to spruce up their homes for spring. Recently the New Braunfels Student Council came together for the same reason. Every year the NBHS Student council helps to repair the homes of some community members who are in need of help. The NBHS Student Council held the annual Weatherization project March I. Approximately 50 high school students spent a Saturday caulking and sealing a house, building a chain-link dog pen, building and painting a porch, hanging a sheet rock ceiling and replacing some carpet. Along with these activities, the yards were also mowed and a dump-truck load of trash was picked up and taken to the landfill.
The project was overseen by the NBHS Student Council sponsor David Simmons and David Werley of New Braunfels Utilities. The Eco-Energy committee was responsible for the project and was supervised by chairman Jason Friesenhahn and cochairman Derick Bird.
Without the help of community members this project would not be possible. The Student Council would like to thank the following companies for their gracious support
Eco-Energy committee members Include, from left, Jason Friesenhahn, Laura Flaumey, Hannah Arnold and Laura Biased.
of the Weatherization Project: Comal County Landfill, Eberhardt Lumber Co., Hoffmann Floors, Ingram Readymix, McCoy’s Lumber Co. Mueller Building Supplies, Schultz Group Inc., Sherwin Williams, Stripling Blake Lumber Co., T&F Construction Co., Target Stores, True Value Hardware and Wal-Mart Stores. We are only able to complete these projects because these companies are so community minded.
Our Weatherization was successful, and all who participated enjoyed themselves. The Eco-Energy
committee is also responsible for a recycling bin located at the front entrance of the high school We invite all of the community to place any kind of paper products in the bin at their convenience to help the environment. Our committee is also currently involved with the Children's Museum and a Watt Watchers program. We are looking forward to spring and more opportunities to help the community and the environment.

Area youth honored for animal projects
By ROGER D.HAVLAK
Special to the Herald-Zeitung
Several of our 4-H youth were rewarded in February for their extra hard work with their animal projects. In Rosenburg, the Texas Club Lamb Association held the Top Ten Banquet.
During this event, Nicole Blackwell placed fourth in the Senior Showmanship Division.
Jackie Townsend was number IO with her medium wool lamb.
She placed fifth in the Intermediate Showmanship.
The Texas Club Calf Association held its annual banquet in Houston during the Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Kevyn Ivy was 10th in the Polled Hereford Breed, and Kristopher Kaufman placed sixth.
Jeff Eldridge placed fifth in the Chianma Breed. Brandi Henk placed first and received a bch buckle in the Brahman Division.
During stock show season, these young people, along with their families, travel many miles all over the state
Throughout their journey they accumulate points at the livestock shows.
At the end of the season in February, they are rewarded with jackets and/or buckles.
It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be in the “top ten" of Texas
Great going, and again, congratulations to you all!
