The Comal Independent School District board of trustees will approve high school graduation locations at its meeting Thursday
The board previously directed the administration to reserve the Blossom Athletic Center for commencement exercises for both high schools. Last month, the board heard reports from a student representative from each campus.
The Canyon High School representative said students wanted to keep the ceremonies at Cougar Stadium and were willing to risk inclement weather to maintain a tradition.
A Smithson Valley High School representative said the school’s facilities were large enough to handle the exercises. She said students supported moving graduation to San Antonio.
The board will consider approving

Dear Abby: Yesterday I went into a store that was having a sale. While I was there, I saw some tables that had decorative items for 50 percent off. I found two things I wanted. The sale amounted to less than $20, so I paid cash for them.
Before the salesman gave me my purchase, he demanded my name, telephone number and address. Abby, this was a cash sale. He held my purchases until I reluctantly gave him my name and address. (I steadfastly refused to give him my telephone number, since it is un listed.)
This isn’t the first time I’ve had this happen with a cash sale. What in the world are businesses thinking of? If I pay cash for something, why should I be obliged to give them this information? I strongly object to this practice. It is an invasion of privacy.
I would appreciate it if you would publish this letter. Businesses that do this should be aware that they may have lost any future business from this particular customer.
If I must give this kind of information when I make a cash purchase, IMI shop someplace else next time.
Disgusted Shopper, Fort Myers, Fla.
Dear Disgusted Shopper: Some places of business do this because they want to add your name to their mailing list. However, you are under no obligation to give personal information - and in the future you should tell the store manager how you feel about it.
Dear Abby: I read the excellent letter from the Carrollton, Ga., librarian, encouraging people to ask for help at the public library. May I add another suggestion?
As a children’s librarian, I wish more families would bring their kids to the library and explore all the wonderful services we have to offer them. With the current prices of family entertainment, many parents would be pleasantly a uapi iked. 4 6 4* sc# v ie • &re e

puppet show and taking home books and videos, or bringing the children to an evening story-time and browsing through magazines and tapes after the program.
Mom or Dad can drop by the library after work, and in a few minutes head home with a whole evening’s fun for the family.
The public library shouldn’t be “the best kept secret” in your neighborhood. Please come by and ask us what we can do for you.
