Church, who was put of the search pend to fill her old position, said it was that type of wide experience possessed by Crandall that helped her get the job.
“Karen had the qualifications they were looking for," Church aud. “They new they were looking for someone with a lot of promotional and events experience as well as the retail background."

Saturday's bond election in foe Comal Independent School District pointed out several issues in the diversity of voting trends in a district that includes parts of five counties.
The bond election passed,
2,452 to 1,751. A breakdown of polling places shows the diversity of opinion in the district, and the growing populi- * lion in foe Bulverde and Canyon Lake areas.
Including both early and election-day totals, the Bulverde Elementary and Bill Brown Elementary polls registered 1,319 votes, 915 for the bond, 404 against Canyon Lake area polls, Mountain Valley and Startzville, recorded 1,322 votes, with 489 for the bond but 833 against.
The bond proposal catted for new intermediate schools in both the Smithson Valley and Canyon Lake area. Witkf these new schools in western portions of the county added th relatively new schools at Bill Brown and Smithson Valley High, the growth pattern is obvious.
The highest vote total in the last IO years according tot report by CISD Finance Director Abel Campos came in the 1993 bood akction lo primarily build an elementary in StirtzvilM A RMT5,405 fetes ware east in the election where the bond proposal foiled. A total of4,203 votes were cest in fee mosrirecent election.
“It really depends on the issue," said Campos who has worked with elections for IO years. "We’ve had times with a 500 people voting."
The late two bond elections have shown an increase in the number of votes cast in both the Bulverde and Canyon Lake Areas. A combination of Bulverde Elementary and either Smithson Valley Middle School or Bill Brown Elementary showed a total of 415 votes in the 1985 bond election. More then 1,300 residents ca* votes in this latest elec-tion, the majority in favor of the bond.
This election included the almost-total renovation of the old Canyon Middle School as a third site for an intermediate school. Ten-year board member Lee Heels said the eastern portions of the county wanted something as well.
"People on both ends want something," he Mid "...We were from a rani to an atmo* urban district. Yean aga Canyon wu the only high school. Now, Smithson Valley is there. The growth there (Western Com* Co.) bu been unreel"
The bond election th* built Smithson Valley High included a new Canyon Middte School. Ikcis felt, however, th* in this particular bood election, the lune of going to year* round schooling should the bond have foiled provided! big incentive to vote for new schools.
"I think drat had a big impact," he Mid "I even bed little kids coming up to me and tell me they didn’t want to go lo ffhrwi year-round Some of the grandparents who wouldn't normally vole were getting out and voting against that."
Bearded one making money for United Way
Contributions flow in for Stan Cunningham
By TECCO J. GARCIA Staff Writer
Attention men of the world The thing that you usually grapple with on a duly basis can actually be profitable.
No, not the mother-in-law or athletes foot.
b’s your beard, the stubble, the five o'clock shadow.
The heir on the free that wives usually oomplun about.
Stan Cunningham of Edward D. Jones is changing *1 that.
Cunningham bu grown out his beard in order to raise money—end its working.
But Cunningham jg not raising this money for himself, he's doing it for the Com* County United Way.
He put three Jan on the lobby of his office, lf you Uke the heard and you
want Jones to keep the beard ^definitely, one can put a dollar in the the beard for good jar.
If you like the beard but you only want him to keep it until the end of the United Way fond drive on Thanksgiving, donate a dollar In th* jar.
And if you simply don’t like it and you want him to shave immediately, you would donate to to* jar.
While *1 this may seem like rather sophomoric hijinks, it is. However all the money collected goes to causes supported by toe United Way which aren’t to felly.
"I* novel ways like this to* raise money that make it (fundraising)
work," *id loc* United Way President Joe Wort. "Without these ways we could not make it work."
Wort sud it was the spirit of the
rn ff rn, rn I t^lOt JlC WStS
while he wu on vacation with his brother.
The two of them then challenged each other to grow out their beards and their families would decide who had the be* toking one on Thanks-.vin.
