District trying to meet future needs
existing schools, three new elementary schools and one new middle school. Proposition 2, for $34 million, includes two additional elementary schools.
Though some voters are concerned about cost of the proposed bond or the plan to move sixth grade into mid-dle school, Walker said almost every person he’s talked to has agreed that the plan makes sense.
“We want to be proactive and have land available when we need it,” he said. “With the flex schools, we want to be able to put them where they will be most dramatically needed, and we don’t know where that is yet.”
Leroy and Millie Brown of Garden Ridge said they take a great interest in the district’s growth.
“I think it is an excellent plan to buy land at today’s prices,” Leroy Brown said. “That shows fairly rare foresight for a school district.”

Canyon falls just short of state oerth
“We came out here expecting a great match, and we got one,” said Unicorns middle blocker Lacy Redwine. "We came out playing like we knew how — we came out playing with heart.”
New Braunfels coach Phyllis Fowler agreed.
“They were very mentally ready,” she said of her players. “In the back of everyone’s minds, we knew that this match could happen, that we’d both be in the finals.” The 2005 team is tile fifth New Braunfels team to make state under Fowler, who led the Unicorns to the 2(XX) state championship.
“They’re all different,” she said. “But this one feels so great. I just want to savor it.” Canyon, bidding for its 10th state tournament and third

Children took key role in paper’s choice
“Comics have to be funny,” said voter Felicia Lombardo, an eighth-grader at Canyon Middle School. “I picked Tox-Trot’ because it has real life stuff that could actually hap-
Briana Belmarez, a sixth-grader at OakRun Sixth Grade Center, said she was thrilled to have a chance to shape the comics section of the paper.
“I liked ‘Pooch Cafe.’ Its dogs at a cafe!,” she said. “A good comic has to be original.”
Ryan Bleser, a sixth-grader at OakRun, said it was hard to choose comics based on only one strip of each. I Ie said he read another strip of “Ink Pen” that was funny, but based his decision on the strip on the ballot.

under coach Heather Sanders, simply couldn’t overcome the Unicorns’ power game.
“They didn’t error, they executed, they did everything,” Sanders said of New Braunfels. “I give ail the credit to them.”
Following the match, the Cougarettes retired to their dressing room, where Sanders addressed her nine seniors for the final time. They emerged teary-eyed, holding red roses and seeking comfort from parents cmd friends.
Two of them were New Braunfels players Chelsie fowler and Samantha Lingam -felter, who embraced Canyon defender Kelly Rotzler.
“We’re proud of you, Cougarettes!” yelled one parent, who also wished New Braunfels the best at next week’s state tournament.
For Sanders, however, it was a journey that ended a little too soon.
“I told them that Ive never been prouder of a group of girls,” she said. “I love each and every one of them.”
Library gets a helping hand in the shape of a box
By Jessica Sanders
Good things for the New Braunfels Public Library are coming in boxes — $ I OO boxes.
New Braunfels Art League, New Braunfels I ligh School and McCoy’s Lumber Company teamed up to create decorative shadow boxes to raise money for the library. Hie boxes will be featured in a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. today at the gallery and will remain on display through the holidays.
Patsy Vann, NBHS librarian, said the boxes were made by high school students in a construction systems class with lumber donated by McCoy’s. The boxes were decorated by local artists and are now being sold.
“The price is $100 each, but people can pay more if they want to make a larger dona-
“The First time I read it, it was funny,” Ryan said. “But the one on there wasn’t funny.”
Jeff Fowler, circulation director for the Herald-
Zeitung, said he appreciated the votes of more than 400 participants.
“We wanted kids to have input in what goes into the paper,” he said. “We thought

don,” Vann said.
She said the project was the idea of Cay Quoveser, president of the New Braunfels library Board. Quoyeser saw a similar project in another town and thought it would be a great fund-raiser for the library.
Fifty boxes were made, but nine have already been sold to people who saw them on display. Each is decorated with a unique design, Vann said.
“Every single dollar goes to the library,” she said. “It’s just a great idea and so many groups in the community worked together on this.”
it would be a fun way to get the community involved.”
Voter apathy may have kept high school voters from the polls, Fowler said. Only 12 percent of votes came from grades 9 through 12.
Most votes (58 percent) came from students in middle school.
Though students admitted that their friends helped them pick the funniest comics, they denied that peer pressure swayed their votes. Sabrina Anderson, an eighth-grader at Canyon, said she was careful about her choices because she knew the paper would be affected.
“I read each one like twice,” she said. “I thought it was important because it was going to be in the newspaper.”
