B-24 BOMBER AIRSHOW CANCELED — The B-24 bomber scheduled to fly into New Braunfels today will not be coming.
Jim Stewart, a pilot with the B-29/B-24 Squadron of the Mid-land-based Commemorative Air Force, said the decision not to fly to New Braunfels was reached late Tuesday.
“We had a crash recently in Houston, and I can’t say any more because we just don’t know. It may be something else, but our plans are on hold temporarily,’’ Stewart said. “I think it could have something to do with insurance.”
The CAF is nearing the point where it shuts down for winter to perform maintenance. Stewart said it would attempt to reschedule the New Braunfels visit in the spring.
POLICE SEARCH FOR GRAFFITI VANDALS — New Braunfels police investigating a string of graffiti vandalise incidents over the weekend are looking for tips.
Police Lt. Mike Rust said someone used spray paint at Canyon High School, New Braunfels High School, Dayspring Christian Church and the Memorial schools.
Detective Bob Parchman has been assigned to investigate the incidents, Rust said.
“We’re looking for information. Someone knows who did this,” Rust said. Anyone who can help with the investigation can reach Parchman at 608-2185.
Rust said Crime Stoppers would pay up to $1,000 cash for information leading to the arrest
Local child support debtor gets two years in state jail
District Judge Gary Steel Tuesday sentenced the man believed to owe more child support money than anyone in Comal County history to two years in state jail.
Jerry Don Posey, 45, who pleaded guilty to criminal nonsupport of two Canyon Lake area children who are now adults, will not have to go to jail if he makes $111,000 in restitution to his ex-wife and children.
Assistant District Attorney Melissa Rowcliffe said he would be remanded to a state restitution center until he pays $50,000.
and grand jury indictment of the persons responsible for these crimes. All calls are confidential, and the caller will remain anonymous.
“We want your information, not your name," Rust said.
Call 620- TIPS, or 800-640-8422.
NBISD GETS SUPERIOR' FINANCIAL RATING — New
Braunfels ISD officials announced the district received a preliminary rating of “superior achievement” under Texas’ new Schools FIRST financial accountability rating system.
The Superior Achievement rating is the state’s highest and demonstrates the quality of the district’s financial management and reporting system.
The rating is based on analysis of data for the 2002 fiscal year. NBISD passed all 21 indicators used in the rating system.
A restitution center is like work release at the local corrections level. Posey will spend his nights locked up and his days on a job until he makes amends.
Posey, formerly married to Kathy Jurica, was arrested at a Laramie, Wyo., campground in March after someone who had seen his photo an Attorney General Greg Abbott’s Web site turned him in.
“I’m happy for Ms. Jurica,” Rowcliffe said after Steel announced the sentence. “Let’s be happy for these kids. Now, they’ll get something.”

GROUP CHALLENGES TECH ADMISSIONS CHANGES - The
Center for Equal Opportunity, a conservative watthdog group, is challenging the constitutionality of proposed admissions changes at Texas Tech University.
The Washington, D.C.-based group opposed to affirmative action and bilingual education filed a complaint Tuesday with the U.S. Department of Education’s 6ffice of Civil Rights following a decision by the university’s board of regents to allow race to be used as a factor in admissions.
The group, which has filed similar complaints about other universities in the country, believes the policy is unconstitutional under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Tech spokeswoman Sally Logue-Post said Tech’s admissions policy is still under review
and a new policy hasn’t been implemented.
“Texas Tech cannot reintroduce race and ethnicity in the admissions process and stay within the bounds of the law,” Edward Blum, a senior fellow with the center, said Tuesday.
FIREFIGHTERS PUU BACK IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY - Tens of thousands of people fled the San Bemadino mountains Tuesday to escape raging wildfires, causing a traffic jam on a narrow mountain highway, and frustrated firefighters said there was little they could do to stop the flames.
About 80,000 full-time residents have been evacuated from the mountains since Saturday, and the situation got worse Tuesday.
“Just about everything is burning,” said William Bagnell, fire chief of the Crest Forest Fire Protection District.
Authorities announced two more deaths in San Bemadino County on Tuesday, bringing the death toll to 17 in California’s deadliest wildfires in more than a decade. Ten thousand firefighters were on the front lines throughout the state, and Gov. Gray Davis estimated the cost at nearly $2 billion.
