If the ordinance passes, the city will extend its borders to include Northwoods; Alves La ne/Barbarosa Road; Stonegate; Southbank; Schmucks Road/Engel Road; Hunter Road/Orion Drive; Klein Road and Farm-to-Market 1044. Despite a lawsuit, the threat of injunctions and vocal protests from residents, city council will vote on the seven areas when its meets at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers. Council also scheduled a closed-door session with City Attorney Charlie Zech at 5:30 p.m. to discuss legal issues. City council must read and vote on any ordinance three times. An ordinance does not become law until it passes the majority of council at three separate meetings. Monday’s vote will set the effective date of annexation. Hunter’s Creek residents filed a temporary restraining order to prohibit council from voting to annex them. Because the restraining order omitted Hunter’s Creek from the second ordinance reading on Aug. 27, the city is one step behind with plans to annex that subdivision. A judge denied an injunction for Hunter’s Creek Friday afternoon, so See CITY/11 A River walk K.

Final prep under way for ‘Taste of Home’ From Staff Reports Hundreds of people will fill the New Braunfels Civic Center on 'Thursday as the third Taste of Home Cooking School begins. Final preparations are under way for the Taste of Home Cooking School, Herald-Zeitung Advertising Director Angela Benson said. “We sold 900 tickets,” she said. “It’s totally sold out.” The event starts at 6:30 p.m., and doors open at 5 p.m. Benson recommends that those who do have tickets come early to sample food from Oma’s Haus and the Carriage Haus. Early arrivals can also check out the fall line from Pampered Chef, register for door prizes and see a Mary Ray Cosmet ics demonstration. “We have a lot of door prizes,” Benson said. “We’re giving away bags of free groceries. It’ll be a great night.” Since the show is sold out, no tickets will be sold at the door, Benson said. The Civic Center will be filled to capacity, she said. Every student at the Cooking School will receive a free cookbook and a bag of coupons. Conducted by Home Economist Margaret McCutcheon, will include on-stage preparation of IO recipes. She’ll also highlight some of the latest kitchen equipment, food products and cooking techniques.

Two of them, Kaitlin, 6, and Ryan, 3, are afflicted with the genetic illness that attacks the lungs and digestive systems. Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disease that afflicts about 30,000 children and young adults in this country. CF causes the body to produce an uncommonly thick and sticky mucus that impairs and damages the lungs, pancreas and digestive system. People with cystic fibrosis have trouble maintaining their weight even though they may eat large amounts of food. Kathy Mittler, Executive Director of the Lone Star Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said it takes about 4,000 calories to maintain a child who has CF. That child’s average life expectancy is 32 years — drastically raised from seven years in the 1950s. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was formed in 1955 by a CF parent, Mittler said. The research is vital and is making inroads against the illness each year. “We really are makingSee STRIDES/5A K.

By the book: NB mom to tell how to face chronic illness By Ron Maloney Staff Writer Beth and Bill Barry’s daughter, Kaitlin struggled at age 14 months to gain weight and to grow, but it wasn’t really happening. The family consulted with medical professionals — including Kaitlin’s grandmother, Joyce Ramsey, who is a registered nurse. She suggested they get Kaitlin tested for cystic fibrosis. They asked their pediatrician. “Let’s rule it out,” he told them. But instead, he ended up ruling it in.
