PRANKSTERS TOSS PUMPKINS ONTO VEHICLES ON 1-35 —
Sheriff s deputies searched without success Thursday night for the perpetrators of a pumpkin prank on Interstate 35.
Comal County Sheriffs Office Patrol Lt. Brent Paullus said dispatch was notified at 8 p.m. that someone had dropped a pumpkin from the York Creek Road bridge onto a northbound car.
“The report said it dented the hood and broke the windshield," Paullus said.
No one in the car was injured, and no pumpkin throwers were found.
Sgt. Jimmie Limmer reported that four vehicles were struck, but no one was hurt.
“Any time you drop anything v off of an overpass, you’re risking someone’s life down below,’’ Limmer said. “ This will be handled that way by this agency. As far as I’m concerned, you might as well be shooting at them.’’
Sheriff ’s Capt. Ed Whitson said October, with I lalloween. approaching, is the time such pranks commonly occur.
“It s that time of year when all die ghosts and goblins come out and the tree-paperers and win-dow-soapers start hounding neighborhoods,’’ Whitson said. But that doesn’t mean the cases will not be taken seriously.
WASSAILFEST MUGS ARRIVE EARLY — The 2003 Wassailfest mugs are now available at the New Braunfels Main Street office in city hall and at downtown businesses.
The mugs are early Otis year because of response in previous years.
“It s a very sought-after item," said Jan Soechting, main street director.
Last year, the mugs sold out the night of Wassailfest. Phis year,
1,250 mugs were made.
The mug features Wassail Willie and a downtown stteetscape with the Main Plaza Bandstand on the lid in pewter.
The mugs cost $10 plus tax. Several downtown retailers will be selling the mugs. Johnson l ur-
House negotiator suggests congressional map redraw
AUSTIN (AP) — Despite a looming deadline and another \ proposal Friday on how to rearrange the map of Texas’ congressional districts, Republican legislators headed into the weekend still squabbling over how to arrange West Texas districts.
lf the House and Senate do not agree to a plan by Monday — which Gov. Rick Perry has called the “drop dead date” — lawmakers may have to postpone next year’s March 2 primary election.
Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, who leads the House negotiating team charged with working out a redistricting agreement with the Senate, • proposed a new map Friday. He
niture Company, I lenne I lard ware, Rocks Etc., Miller and Miller Insurance Agency and Comal Flower Shop on the Plaza have them now.
'Hie design changes every year. The mug for the*I Itll annual festival features the bandstand in honor of the bandstand restoration project campaign, which will officially kick off the night of Wassailfest. •
Wassailfest is a winter festival celebrated by sampling wassail from downtown businesses.
The event is slated for 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4.
AGM STUDENTS ORGANIZING OFF-CAMPUS BONFIRE - Texas
A&M students who want bonfire brought back to campus have started organizing an off-campus bonfire for a second year. A&M senior Matthew Maddox said Friday.
Maddox, who is part of a group known as Student Bonfire, said the off-campus bonfire will take place about IO minutes from campus at an undisclosed location. I Ie said the bonfire will be built on private land and insurance has been secured for the Nov. 22 burn, which will take
said his proposal is a conglomeration of two maps proposed by the Senate on Thursday.
“To be honest, this is bouncing off of quite a bit of work that was done by the Senate,” King said.
But, the lead Senate negotiator said the plap wouldn’t meet with approval in his chamber.
“There's clearly been a change of some significant counties that jeopardizes and changes the proposal that we made,” said Sen. Todd Staples, R-Palestine.
Sen. Troy Fraser of Horseshoe Bay said the proposal would weaken Lubbock’s strength in electing a member of Congress.
place six days before A&M plays its rival, the University of Texas.
"We have to keep it going somehow," Maddox said. “Off campus is our only avenue right now."
The student group began handing out fliers promoting the off-campus bonfire this week. Maddox said the bonfire has been redesigned and will resemble the shape of a teepee with all logs touching the ground as opposed to the former wedding-cake style stack, which collapsed in November 1999, killing 12 students.
A&M President Robert Gates has said no decision will be made on returning bonfire to campus until litigation over the 1999 collapse is complete.
Maddox said his group is trying lo recruit students to participate in the first cut Oct. 11 and construction of the off-campus bonfire.
REPORTS: MAN NOT BITTEN BY SNAKE IN WAL-MART —
Doctors determined that a man who claimed he was bitten by a rattlesnake in a Wal-Mart had not been bitten, two radio stations reported Friday.
I )ouglas I latchett, 31, a selfemployed carpenter and painter who lives in Bangs, went to Wal-
Mart in nearby Brownwood on Monday. He said he reached for a pair of shoes in a box on a shelf when the Western diamondback rattler, estimated at 14-16 inches long, bit him in the hand.
However, KBWD-AM and KOXE-FM in Brownwood reported that Brownwood Regional Medical Center doctors told police Hatchett had not been bitten by a rattler when they examined him Monday.
MANY QUESTIONS LOOM OVER NEW SUPREME COURT SESSION — The Supreme Court term beginning next week will tackle all the subjects you’re not supposed to talk about at parties — religion, money and politics.
The term also inevitably will bring a return to a topic the justices themselves find uncomfortable — the possibility one or more will pick this year to quit. The court has maintained the same cast for a remarkable nine years and counting — the longest streak in modern history— and retirement speculation builds each year.
• I he justices shrug off or refuse to answer.questions about their plans, and some have complained privately that there is an almost ghoulish preoccupation with their ages and health.
