The Meixners are two-thirds of the Al Meixner Trio, which arrived in New Braunfels Thursday for their seventh Wurstfest. “When you’re down once for Wurstfest, you want to be down again,” Al said. The Meixners, from Allentown, Pa., play Central and Eastern European folk music in 11 different languages. “And we understand every one,” Al joked Thursday afternoon, just about 24 hours before his band goes on stage in the big tent at 7:30 p.m. tonight, where they will premiere their new CD, “Off the Wall,” which includes the rap tribute to Wurstfest.

GIVING IT ALL THEY HAVE Rivalry means just as much to junior varsity teams Three injured in head-on accident By Jarred Dunn Correspondent Even before the game started, Ion Swick had his camcorder set up and ready to go in the sea of red Canyon football fans. The junior varsity Canyon Cougars were meeting archrival New Braunfels for the District 27-4A district title, and Swick did not want to miss a minute of his son, Todd, playing for the Cougars in front of several hundred raucous fans. Swick and his wife, Shari, were treated to a 14-7 Canyon win, with Todd playing a part in the championship game. “I just got this new camera, so I had to get it out,” Jon Swick said. “This will be Todd’s first season to go undefeated with a team.” Todd Swick, a tight end, has played football since he was 7 years old. “Football is Todd’s passion.” his dad said. “I know it was hard last year for him, moving down here and being the new guy. Football’s always been there for him since he was a kid.” Fellow Cougars fan Tony Walluk was also there to watch his son, Seth, play. He pointed to the boisterous fans all around him as he waited for the game to begin. “Fan support is the best — these people are nuts,” Walluk said. “These people have been New Braunfelsers for probably their entire life. Most of them went to school here, and their friends went to school here. They’re what you call rabid fans. They give the team a lot of support, so it’s real exciting to sit here in the midst of all this.” By David Rupkalvis News Editor Three people were airlifted to a San Antonio hospital, one after running from police for more than a mile, after a head-on accident at the intersection of County Line Road and FM 725 late Thursday. New Braunfels Police Department Sgt. Scott Lange said the accident happened around 9:30 pm, when a gold Toyota 4Run-ner driving down FM 725 passed a car in the right lane and ran a red light, colliding headon with a Chrysler PT Cruiser that was turning left from County Line Road onto FM 725. The force of the accident threw both vehicles through the intersection with the 4Run-ner coming to a stop approximately IOO feet from the site of the collision. The PT Cruiser was thrown into a ditch, coming to a stop against an embankment. Lange said witnesses said the driver of the 4Runner got out of the vehicle and sat down on the pavement to wait for help. When officers began to arrive, the man fled into the fields nearby. Police called in a search dog to track the man. After following the scent for more than a mile, police finally caught up with the driver. Because of injuries sustained during the wreck, die man was airlifted to San Antonio. The two people in the PT Cruiser were trapped in their vehicle and had to wait while New Braunfels firefighters and paramedics used the jaws of life to tear open the driver’s side doors. The two people were airlifted to the hospital. Their identities and conditions were not available late Thursday. Lange said the investigation into the accident is continuing.

A rollback also would derail work connected with the courthouse restoration project and limit the county’s ability to borrow money, County Judge Danny Scheel said. The rollback effort, mounted in October by Comal County newspaper publisher Doug Kirk after county commissioners exceeded the rollback tax ceiling in seeking a 2-cent increase in the county’s property tax rate, requires 4,500 valid petition signatures by Dec. 14. As of Thursday, Kirk said he had just reached 1,000 signatures.
