Bush: Difficult times still ahead in war
“Our armed forces are serving ably in Iraq under enormously difficult circumstances, and the policy of our government must be worthy of their sacrifice. Unfortunately, it is not, and the American people know it,” said Sen. Edward Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat.
Sen. Robert Byrd, a veteran Democrat from West Virginia, said Americans should expect “many more losses to come.”
“More than 135,000 U.S. troops remain in Iraq. They did not ask to be sent to war, but each day, they carry out their duty while risking their lives. It is only reasonable

Bulverde area, where the land would be purchased, is growing more quickly than even developers had planned.
“In the Smithson Valley attendance zone, there are more than 12,000 homes in the platted stages,” she said. “A large majority of these homes are in the southern part of the district near (U.S.) 281.”
Many students who live in this area currently attend Specht Elementary. Attendance at Specht has reached capacity, and some grades have been capped. Last year, fifth- and sixth-graders were moved to the already-crowded Adon Seay Intermediate
that the American people, and their elected representatives, ask more questions about what the future holds in Iraq,” Byrd said.
President Bush wanted the U.S. public to brace for more casualties in die fight against “as brutal an enemy as we have ever faced, unconstrained by any notion of common humanity and by the rules of warfare.”
“No one should underestimate the difficulties ahead,” Bush said in a speech Tuesday before the Joint Armed Forces Officers’ Wives’ luncheon in Washington.
As a sign of those challenges, one of Iraq’s most ruthless terror groups — al-Qaida in Iraq — claimed responsibility for Monday’s suicide attacks against hotels housing Western journalists and contractors in Baghdad, as well as suicide bombings Tuesday in northern Iraq.
School. Other elementary students are being moved to Rahe Bulverde Elementary.
“Capacity of the new school would be about 800,” I lutchison said. “We hope it wouldn’t open with that amount, but with the fast growth rate, anything is possible.”
Walker said the district’s next elementary school would open in the fall of 2006. A new elementary is also needed in the Canyon feeder area. He said that if the bond does not pass, the district will have to consider other options until new bond packages can be presented.
“Clearly we have to do something,” he said. “We may have to do some rezoning and add more portable

By Leigh Jones
Haymarket Park will get a much needed face lift Saturday when Parks and Recreation Department workers, a Home Depot construction crew and neighborhood residents gather to construct a new playground.
The recreation area, a product of children’s input from a community meeting last july, will include overhead climbing elements, a balancing apparatus, two slides and an ‘s’ shaped rock climber wall.
Parks Director Stacey Iiiird encouraged all citizens to join the construction fun, which will complete the playground in one day.

of his old mount, McLennan e-mailed Jim Mulvihill, president of the Birddog Association. As part of his duties, Mulvihill is responsible for keeping track of the L-19 aircraft that have been restored by collectors.
Mulvihill was as surprised to see the photo as McLennan had been.
“This is tally beyond belief,” he wrote back. “Birddog 12386 was mine from 1978 to 1998.’’
McLennan could not believe the coincidence.
“I was dumbfounded,” he said. “It definitely fell into the ‘small world department’ category.’’
Not only did Mulvihill know how the plane got back to the United States from Korea, he also knew who currently owned it.
“She was resold in 2(X)4 and

“If people show up with work gloves, a rake, wheelbarrow or shovel, we’ll put them to work,” she said. “Everyone’s welcome.”
The Parks Department will provide drinks, snacks and additional tools.
Although it will not go up Saturday, the park improvements also will include a new shade pavilion painted to resemble the Plaza Bandstand.
T he entire project is funded
■The Birddog was designed by Cessna Aircraft Co. as an improved Liaison aircraft.
■The first model was delivered in December 1950.
■ The L-19 was used in Korea and Vietnam by the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps.
■ Cessna built around 3,400 L-19s between 1950 and 1960.
now belongs to my g<x>d friend and (International Bird Dog Association) Membership Director Rob Robinson out of North Carolina,” his e-mail continued. “I Ie will be here for the IBDA Roundup in September so you can personally visit with your former mount.” Although McLennan was in the process of recovering from back surgery, nothing could keep him from making a day trip to Fredericksburg to see his old plane.
The annual collector’s event reunited all three of the plane’s former owners and its former pilot.
Using McLennan’s picture as
by a $5,000 grant from national nonprofit organization KaBOOM! and $50,000 in
a starting point, the men were able to reconstruct the aircraft’s travels after the Army sold it.
When Mulvihill bought the plane, it was painted in the red and yellow of the Korean flag. I Ie was told it had belonged to a Korean newspaper, Chosun, whose staff had used it for regular travel.
Mulvihill sold the plane to Troy Cobb in 1998, who in turn sold it to Robinson in 2004.
The only remaining mystery surrounded how it came into the Koreans’ hands in the first place. Mulvihill’s research unearthed Army logs that list the plane as being destroyed by a typhoon in 1959.
Sitting in his office, surrounded by model military aircraft and Army memorabilia, McLennan held the sepia-toned snapshot in his hands and lamented the back surgery that kept him from getting a ride in the plane last month.
“Once I fully recover, Jim Mulvihill has promised to take me for a ride,” he said. “That will have to do, until the next roundup.”

Man arrested for stealing diesel
A 43-year-old San Antonio man was arrested early Saturday for suspicion of stealing 4,500 gallons of diesel fuel from a local business.
Robert S. Lowell, 43, was booked into Comal County Jail on a charge of engaging in organized criminal theft and criminal trespass in connection with the incident.
Lowell posted $7,000 bail and was released Sunday.
Authorities said at least two accomplices fled the scene.
Comal County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tommy Ward said two thefts of diesel fuel were thought to have been committed at the business last week.
The first, reportedly of 3,000 gallons, was followed by Saturday’s incident, in which Deputy I liram Munoz caught Lowell in the act.
At $3 per gallon, die value of die thefts would be about $13,500, Ward said.
