By Scott Ljndlaw Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush, calling for a “strike on the financial foundation” of terrorists, demanded Monday that foreign banks follow America’s lead and freeze the assets of 27 individuals and organizations. Osama bin Laden accused Bush of leading a new crusade against Islam “under the flag of the cross.” Bush, standing in the Rose Garden, said the order that took effect one minute after midnight applied to “terrorist organizations, individuals, terrorist leaders, a corporation that serves as a front for terrorism and several nonprofit organizations.” He conceded they operate primarily overseas, adding that as a result, “We’re putting banks and financial institutions around the world on notice.” If they fail to assist, he said, the Treasury Department “now has the authority to freeze their banks’ assets and transactions in the United States.” Bush spoke nearly two weeks after the worst terrorism attack on American soil, when terrorists hijacked jetliners and flew them into the World Trade Center twin towers and Pentagon.

Baby Barnyard — open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Poultry and rabbits — exhibits taken from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. By Ron Maloney Staff Writer More than IOO workers readied exhibits, food stands, game “joints” and nearly 40 amusement rides Monday that will make up the 108th Annual Comal County Fair. At 6 p.m. today, the fair kicks off with what youth almost everywhere call “suicide night” — the first night the rides run. Dick Pagnac, a supervisor and safety coordinator for Heart of America Amusements, said he had heard all the jokes about “suicide night” and all the talk about socalled rickety amusement rides. But he said the most dangerous part of attending the Comal County Fair will be fighting the traffic to get there. Pagnac is the man responsible for the safety of the rides that are being inspected by city, state and insurance company officials this morning. Safety is the major issue for carnival operators everywhere, Pagnac said. “Safety is our main concern,” Pagnac said. ‘That’s what this is all about. If the public can’t come out and feel safe having a good time, we K.

See CARNIVALE Lawsuits still pending in district court By Amy Clarkson Staff Writer The city of New Braunfels grew by five square miles after council voted to annex seven different areas Monday. The split vote marked the end of contentious debates about the annexation process that started earlier this summer. Councilmembers Larry Alexander, Lee Rodriguez, Sonia Munoz-Gill and Mayor Stoney Williams voted in favor of annexation. Councilmembers Robert Kendrick, Juliet Watson and Debbie Flume opposed annexation. Only one issue remains for council: a third and final vote on area two, which includes Hunter’s Creek, Gardens of Hunter’s Creek and Orion subdivisions. And although the vote marks the effective date of annexation, some residentsAnnexation New city residents: • Northwoods • Goodwin Lane/Hunter Drive • Alves Lane • Saengerhalle Rod • Southbank • Klein Road • Morningside Drive/Schmucks Road promised further action. Rick Upton, president of the Hunter’s Creek Owners Association, told the council he was encouraged by a district judge’s decision to allow the lawsuit to stand. “Judge (James) Barlow clearly intended to give us the ability to seek declaratory judgment after annexation,” Upton said. “He said if they (meaning the residents) think they have been damaged, we’ll have a hearing on that second part. The second part is the question of full municipal services.” Upton told the council that he believed the judge’s comments left the door open for See ANNEXATION/3 A Council debates Camp Comal future From Staff Reports New Braunfels City Council will discuss the future of Camp Comal during a closed-session meeting with the board of New Braunfels Utilities and the Parks and Recreation Commission. The three groups plan to meet behind closed doors at 5:30 p.m. today. They plan to discuss land options for NBTJs wastewater treatment plant. NBU bought Camp Comal years ago for future expan sion of its Kuehler Wastewater Treatment Plant. The municipal utility allowed the city to build baseball fields on the land. Now, city officials want to keep Camp Comal for parkland, while NBU officials say they need it for future wastewater treatment expansion. The parks committee met with NBU officials to work out a deal earlier this year: if the city buys additional land for the utility company, NBU will allow the city to keep Camp Comal for a city park. Two file for NBISD board seats in Nov. 6 trustee election Early voting— From Staff Reports Three people are running for two seats on the board of the New Braunfels Independent School District. Board president Bill Biggadike decided not to run for his District 4 seat, but his wife Penelope filed and faces opposition from Yolanda Longoria. Jorge Maldanodo is running unopposed for the seat he holds for District 2 of the NBISD board. School officials say that election will be can celed at the NBISD board meeting in October. Bill Biggadike has been a member of the school board since 1998. He said he decided against another term because his landscape lighting business left him little time for school board issues. “My business is booming.” he said. BIGGADIKE “I had the best year I’d ever had last year, and it’s more than doubled this year.” Monday was the last day to file in the Nov. 6 election. The first day of early voting will be Oct. 22. Early voting locations will be open at the Education Center, 430 See NBISD/3A LONGORIA • First day of early voting for Nov. 6 election will be Oct. 22. • Locations will be open at the Education Center, 430 W Mill St. and the Comal County Courthouse. • On election day, District 2 voters will vote at Life Christian Center, 2240 Farm-to-Market Road 725, and voters living in District 4 will vote at Lamar Primary, 240 N.
