Employees told to cooperate
the FBI was looking for—and that investigators hadn’t talked with him — but he did say he welcomed the review of his company’s practices and believed no wrongdoing would be uncovered.
“We don’t believe in fraud, and we don’t participate in fraud,” Harrison said. “We’re extremely confident in the way we run the business. I absolutely and unquestion-

Woman waited for her groom
The lady arrived in her wedding finery, but the groom never showed, Allyson said.
“The poor thing,” she said.
“They told her they couldn’t find him. She said, ‘I’m not going to leave,’" Allyson said.
And she never did.
As the story goes, the inn’s owners told her she could stay if she were willing to work, and she did — for perhaps 20 or 30 years. Then, far too young, she died.
Allyson said she doesn’t know how.
New innkeepers took over the hotel from the Eggelings. One day, the new innkeeper was in the front parlor when an elegantly dressed man came through the frosted-glass front doors.
“She came out of the parlor and asked if she could help him,” Allyson said.
Saying nothing, the man walked up the front stars and met a beautiful young lady at the top.
They embraced, and both disappeared. The innkeeper went out front, and a horse — even as autos were becoming commonplace transportation — was tethered there.
It would remain unclaimed, Allyson said.
Witnesses helped search the entire building, but neither he nor the woman were found.
Maybe — just maybe — neither of them ever left.
“I don’t tell everyone the ghost story,” Allyson said. “I wait until they ask. Some people don’t want to know.”
ingly believe in our management team and in all the people who work here."
Started about 15 years ago by Harrison and his wife, Susanna, the Scooter Store is the largest player in the motorized scooter business in die United States.
Everything the Scooter Store does is legal, ethical and legitimate, Harrison said.
“As a Medicare provider, our records are an open book,” Harrison said. “Medicare has come out and audited us, and those have always gone very well. I know the way we run this business. We take extra

Students discussed walking out
Teachers have praised efforts to keep students out of the hallways and get them to class on time, Williams said.
NBISD board president Lee Edwards said Monday he had heard no complaints from teachers.
Parents also were upset their teens were spending so much time studying for assessment exams and UIL academic competitions.
Williams said: “My philosophy has always been you work them as hard as you can as long as you can and then you test them."
Students have discussed walking out, and one student has created an anti Williams Web site asking for revolution in the school.
“That’s kids talking, and I’m not going to be dictated by kids," Williams said.
measure after extra measure after extra measure to do things the right way.”
The FBI would be given full access to any records or information it wants, Harrison said. He added that he’s offered to speak with investigators.
The Scooter Store contacted Medicare officials earlier this year to question practices used by some of its competitors in the Houston area. An investigation in that city has led to federal fraud indictments.
“There were some horrible things going on in Houston," Harrison said. “There’s a real need in this industry to clean

Extracurricular matter to schools
of 6,500, but not all of those slots will be filled by top IO percent graduates, said Rebecca Harbaugh, A&M assistant admissions director.
All colleges, though, especially smaller ones, aren’t experiencing the same growing pains as A&M and UT.
“There s a perception in many people’s minds that UT and A&M are the only places to go,” Grasshoff said.
UT-San Antonio doesn’t have a cap on freshmen enrollment.
Local high schools use a scale to calculate student rank. Difficult classes are worth more points, an incen-. tive for students to take, for instance, calculus instead of easier electives.
But most colleges are looking for more than academics. They seek a well-rounded
up fraud, and I think it’s very good that they’re doing that.” Harrison said his company has asked its employees to cooperate fully with the investigation.
“We’ve asked them to tell the truth and tell everyone exacdy how you feel. That’s all we can ask for.”
The Scooter Store is prepared to offer legal representation for its employees if needed, Harrison said. The company has retained a law firm, but Harrison did not name the firm.
“I’d prefer that you talk to me." he said.
“If a student doesn’t fit the academic requirements for admission, we’re going to look at the other qualities that student might bring to our campus," said Christie Kangas, director of admissions for Texas State University-San Marcos admissions.
Those who don’t make the top IO can lean on other skills.
“(Extracurricular involvement) sometimes is the reason they aren’t in the top IO percent, Kangas said. “Maybe they’ve spent time rounding out their life.”
Most schools try to make the admissions process as personalized as possible, said Andrea Cyterski -Acost a, University of Incarnate Word admissions director.
“Activities are becoming increasingly more important,” Cyterski-Acosta said. “Schools want activity on their campuses. The whole college education doesn’t end when the student walks out of the classroom.”
