Vandals cause an uproar at NB High School
Vandalism at New Braunfels High School on Wednesday was interpreted by students as a possible bomb scare, officials said.
Students and staff at NBHS found spray-painted graffiti on the campus.
Stephanie Ferguson, public information officer for New Braunfels Independent School District, said students seemed to
interpret the graffiti to mean that something bad would happen at 2 p.m.
“They seemed to be making their own interpretation that a bomb would go off,” she said. “We never received a bomb threat.”
Ferguson said that the school was never on lock-down, but New Braunfels police moni
tored the school to make sure that the campus was secure.
Detective Bob Parchman said officers and detectives went to the school, but nothing out of the ordinary was noted.
“You know how kids are and rumors are,” Parchman said.
Police will work to determine who the artist was, Parchman said.

Breast milk can be a life saver to some
She said some mothers simply produce too much milk for their own baby, and those who meet the criteria may be ideal donors. Mothers must be in good health and willing to undergo blood tests.
Women who take certain prescription medicines are also not eligible.
“The guidelines are very stringent, but it’s necessary to keep the babies from catching any viruses,” Jackson said.
Approved donor mothers must collect IOO ounces of milk before they can bring it to McKenna. It is then stored in a laboratory-grade freezer until a courier brings it to the Austin bank. The milk then is tested thoroughly, pasteurized and treated to create an ideal balance of fat and chemicals.
Currently, there is one donor mom at McKenna.
Jackson said some of the enzymes and nutrients in breast milk are lost during this process, but the milk is still far preferable to formula. The bank also accepts milk from mothers during any
stage of lactation, as long as 15 months after their baby’s birth.
McKenna is one of only seven collection sites in the state and the only one located outside of a major city. Jackson said the hospital was selected because of its established lactation program and certifications as a 10-step hospital and mother-friendly work site.
Donor moms, patients or employees can pump breast milk on location.
Though she was wary about donating at first, Sanchez said, the experience was a valuable chance to help babies in need.
“When I thought of how quickly my first child grew while breastfeeding, I thought, ‘Why not help someone else?”’ she said.
McKenna employee Tammy Huff, who is still nursing her 3-month-old son, places the pump flange onto the bottle as she prepares to pump breast milk at the hospital's Lactation Center.

OMA’S HAUS established in 1977, began as a small shop offering Texas German sausage and food gifts, later growing into the full service restaurant and gift shop it is today. In German, “Oma” means grandmother and over the years many of our cooks have been real “Oma’s” descendants of the original settlers of New Braunfels. Many of the original German recipes down through the years have taken a unique Texas-German flavor. OMA’S HAUS also has a great selection of original homemade dishes and traditional American favorites that appeal to the whole family. OMA’S HAUS IH-35, Exit #189 on Hwy 46 • 210-625-3280
