Three streets slated for first repairs
spent some of their funds on projects on Nacogdoches Street and Gardenia Drive, said City Engineer Mike Short.
Former Councilwoman Debbie Flume was looking at several projects, Short said.
“The projects she wanted to do at the time were considerably more than $300,000," Short said.
Pospisil didn’t know she had the money reserved for her district.

After a 3-cent tax increase was earmarked for $150,000 in street minor street repair in each district, Pospisil quickly spent the money on five projects.
Now that she has more money to work with, Pospisil plans to fix Canyon Drive from Kentucky Avenue to Ohio Avenue; Beverly Lane from Wood Road to the dead end; and Ohio Avenue from California Boulevard to Kentucky Avenue.
The projects will cost $175,609.
Pospisil is spending her money wisely, Short said.
"It’s hard to get a project done within those costs," he said.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Authorities issued a warrant for Michael Jackson’s arrest on charges of molesting a child and asked the pop superstar Wednesday to turn himself in and surrender his passport. Jackson’s spokesman called the allegations “scurrilous and totally unfounded.”
The 45-year-old King of Pop was accused of multiple counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14. A decade ago, jackson was also accused of molestation but was never charged because the youngster refused to testify.
“I am sad that there is another victim out there. I feel bad for the family. I feel bad for the victim. Beyond that, I feel it is
a sad thing for all those involved,” District Attorney Thomas W. Sneddon Jr. said at a news conference.
Jackson was believed to be in Las Vegas working at a recording studio.
“Get over here and get checked in.” the prosecutor said.
Sneddon would not say when or where the alleged crimes took place or how old the youngster was. He said an affidavit outlining the details will be sealed for 45 days.
But Brian Oxman, an attorney who has represented the Jackson family over the years, told CBS that the case involves the alleged molestation of a 12-year-old boy at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, the playground where the singer has been known to hold sleepover parties with children.
Oxman is not representing Jackson.
CBS immediately pulled a Jackson music special planned for next Wednesday on his greatest hits and the impact on pop culture of the former child star who got his start with his brothers as a member of the singing-and-dancing Jackson 5.
“Given the gravity of the chaiges against Mr. Jackson, we believe it would be inappropriate at this time to broadcast an entertainment special,” the network said.
On Tuesday, as many as 70 law enforcement officers spent 12 hours searching the Neverland Ranch for corroborating evidence. The $12.3 million ranch has a mansion, its own zoo and amusement park.
Each of the sex charges is punishable by three to eight years in prison. Sneddon would not say how many counts Jackson faces. Bail will be set at $3 million.

ACCD anticipates low enrollment at first, but the market likely will demand an expanded program, said Federico Zaragoza,
ACCD spokesman for the project.
“We’ve been looking at a five year plan to max out,” Zaragoza said.
But he expects the center to reach its enrollment capacity in two or three years.
Participation in San Antonio College’s local programs show there is a need for these opportunities.
SAC started offering distance learning opportunities in New Braunfels and Seguin in 1995. About 360 students attend SAC courses in Seguin and New Braunfels.
More than 20 classes are offered throughout the year at the New Braunfels loaming
■ San Antonio College offers more than 20 classes at the New Braunfels Learning Center, 627-6960
■ University of the Incarnate Word will offer four classes at the Scooter Store, 626-4029
■ Central Texas Technology Center will offer classes for summer 2004 at the center near the airport
Center and Canyon and New Braunfels High Schools.
“There’s more of a market in New Braunfels,” said Mike Fitsko, SAC off-campus coordinator.
The typical students are nontraditional students and high school graduates looking to save money or stress by starting their university careers at a community college, said Helen Torres, SAC director of distance education.
“Unless they get a scholarship or can afford it, many students come to SAC,” she said.
Many of the students in the distance learning program never have to step foot on campus or in the classroom, she said.
Students can register, apply and receive tutoring, counseling and library services online. Once a year, a traveling bookstore comes to New Braunfels and parks outside the learning center so local distance education students can purchase books here.
The idea is to expand higher education access to more students to create an educated work force in the community, Torres said.
“With an educated work force, you’re ready for better and higher-paying jobs,” Torres said.

Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
And, the threat is not limited to just smokers.
Early detection is critical yet only 15% of the cases are found in the early stages. Everyone needs to be alert to the symptoms of lung cancer, such as the following:
1 Hoarseness, wheezing, or a cough that doesn't go away • Persistent chest pain, often worse by deep breathing • Weight loss and loss of appetite • Bloody or rust-colored saliva or phlegm • Shortness of breath
Fever without a known reason
• Recurring infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia
Contact your physician if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. Your risk for lung cancer increases when any of the following factors are present:
• Breathing in the smoke of others always avoid second-hand smoke
• Breathing polluted air, asbestos, and radon gas
• Scarring from some types of pneumonia
At Hematology Oncology Associates of South Texas in New Braunfels, we support our patients through the emotional as well as the physical aspects of this disease. Our cancer specialists combine compassionate, personalized care with state-of-the-art therapies. Knowing the dangers of smoking, I hope you’ll work with your family physician to quit. And, I urge you to encourage others who smoke to do the same.
