The meaning behind poppies
Did you know that in the spring of 1919 amidst complete devastation, the poppies bloomed in abundance on the battlefields of France, where so many of our men had fallen in battle, and that a replica of this poppy has become the memorial flower of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Poppy Days, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary Comal Unit No. 179, will be observed Nov. 8 and 9.

commissioners almost immediately.
The suit contended that the commissioners have the authority to extend drinking hours, but not rescind those hours.
The bar owners are asking for damages, including past and future lost profits, past and future lost business opportunities, exemplary damages, court costs and attorney fees.
The plaintiffs dropped that suit In November and chose to file a new suit in Travis County. Besides Comal County and the commissioners, the new suit named the state and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
In March, a Travis County district judge granted the county a change of venue and moved the case back to Comal County.
Local district judges have recused themselves, and a visiting judge will hear the case.
The county has filed a motion for a summary judgment in the case, and the hearing is set for the Comal County Court at Law.

a book, not everyone is a teacher.”
Ken McGuire, the middle school’s principal, said his campus has “claimed bragging rights* regarding Hoyt.
Hoyt is a “kid magnet” who has a tremendous rapport with the children at the middle school, McGuire said.
“Her commitment to kids, as with any teacher of the year, is just beyond what you would expect,” McGuire said. “We’re lucky at New Braunfels Middle School to have several teachers like that, and Kim is one of them. She certainly deserves the award and the recognition.”
Wallock and Hoyt will now represent the district at the regional level for teacher of the year honors.

Tuesday, is claiming self-defense and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment
If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Ullrich has chosen for the jury to decide on what punishment he would receive if found guilty.
State District Judge Jack Robison cleared the courtroom during the testimony of Meredith Ullrich, the defendant’s daughter.
Lawyers would not discuss the specifics of the 9-year-old’s testimony, which lasted about an hour.
Waldrip said the defense and prosecution agreed to clear the courtroom to ensure that the jury would receive an accurate statement from the girl, who might have felt pressured by spectators.
The jury also heard emotional testimony from another witness, David Ikcls, a longtime friend and partner of Kiesling.
Ikcls lives in a trailer park behind an Exxon gas station on Highway 46 where the stabbing allegedly occurred shortly after 7 a.m., according to police reports.
Ikels said he was waiting for Kiesling to give him a ride to work when two trucks pulled into Ikcls’
‘driveway. * ’* - f f 1 *
Ikels said he went out onto his porch and saw Ullrich shove Kiesling back a few steps, and then a fist fight followed.
“I could see (Ullrich) was angry. Ben was just standing there, looking at him,” said Ikcls, who cried on several occasions during his testimony.
Ikels said he went back inside his home to telephone the 911 emergency operator. When he returned, he said he saw Ullrich chase Kiesling down the street. Ikels said Kiesling turned around and
began running toward his home, calling for help. After talking with the 911 operator, Ikels said he ran to check on Kiesling and then watched Ullrich drive away with Meredith, who was in Kiesling’s truck during the encounter.
Although the defense has yet to present its case, several police witnesses testified that Ullrich went to the police station after the incident to report an assault on him, but that they initially responded to a dispatch called earlier in the hour.
In opening statements, Waldrip emphasized to the jury that the defendant initiated the assault on Kiesling that led to his death.
“What this case is about is: When you’re looking for trouble, you’re going to find it,” Waldrip said. "The basic problem is an ex-husband kills the new husband.”
