(Photo by Erik Karl8Son) South Texas Germans hold fast to old-fashioned bowling game By RODGER MALLISON Fort Worth Star-Tologrom FISCHER, Texas (AP) — Past the old general store, down a dark country lane, about 20 cars and pickups are parked around a red tin building. Long rumbling noises and occasional crashing sounds come from inside, where a couple dozen people are competing on four bowling lanes. They exult over “ringer-twelves,” and moan when the “beer pins’’ are left standing. Three youths scramble to get the pins set up, send the balls back and keep the game rolling. Welcome to the Fischer Bowling Club, where an ancient brand of bowling known as ninepin is played. Little known elsewhere in Texas, ninepin bowling is played at about 20 clubs in or near the South Texas counties of Bexar, Comal and Guadalupe. There is even a Tri-County Trophy League to organize competition among the clubs. The Fischer club has about 220 members, many times more than the population of Fischer, which is, perhaps, a dozen. The northern Comal County town is located between Austin and San Antonio. Bowlers play in Fischer just about every night. Teams compete Monday through Thursday in a series that eventually allows each of the 20 teams to play every other team. Youngsters from 6 to 16 years of age play on Friday and senior citizens have the place on Sunday afternoon. Lifetime membership runs $60 and folks over 50 get a $lQ-discount. The rules and strategy of ninepin bowling differ greatly from the more common tenpin variety. Ninepin is “like a baseball game rather than a tennis match,’’ said Moe Schwab, a 32-year veteran of the club’s board. (Schwab is a member of the Ninepin Bowling Hall of Fame: a trophy case at the Order of Eagles Hall 2999 in New Braunfels.) Each team has six members and they bowl in no particular order, but as the team captain directs. The leader’s strategy is knowing which bowlers hit pins on the right best and* which ones hit to the left. SKATE CENTER - SEGUIN FRI. NITE: 7:30-10 30 SAT AFT.: 1:30-3:30 SAT.

On the fifth day we had her, she opened her eyes and smiled. Thai’s what really makes it all worth it” Mendoza said. According to Mendoza, abuse is often the result of mothers who have new boyfriends. When the new boyfriends don’t want children the abuse starts. The shelter recently expanded to house up to 16 children at a time due to growing numbers of abused and neglected children in the area. Mendoza said the shelter would not exist without the support of the community. The shelter receives funds from local civic organizations, individual donations, United Way, the state and fundraisers. The shelter currently needs someone to donate a fence so that the living area can be expanded. Recreational equipment and toys also are needed. Volunteers are always welcome.

Before you set sail, make sure your mast will clear power lines. This is particularly important near marinas and launching ramps. An aluminum mast in contact with a power line is a potentially lethal combination. Once on open water keep a sharp eye. Power lines may be overhead at any point.
