2013 HAND CRAFTED QUILT FoR AUCTIoN

The Heart of Texas (HOT) Chorus, one of the premier choruses of the Barbershop Harmony Society, will perform at the annual Harvestfest celebration sponsored by The Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country. In the pursuit of perfect harmony, the members of HOT travel from north of Austin and south of San Antonio – and most communities in between – to attend weekly rehearsals at Texas State University in San Marcos. The chorus is the performing group of the Central Texas Corridor Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society whose goal is to preserve the barbershop style of singing – an American original style that goes back to the late 1800s and vaudeville stages of the early 1900s. While the core of this group has its roots in the barbershop style, their repertoire includes a wide variety of musical genre including inspiration, gospel,

and modern. The Society is the largest all-male singing organization in the world. Established in early 1994 under the principles of Total Quality Management, the HOT vision serves as a model for a new generation of barbershop choruses, from meeting the standard of excellence in singing and performance to the exceptional organization and operation of the chorus itself. In competitions with choruses throughout southwest Texas, the HOT Chorus has won its Division championship many times. It has gone on to win at the District Competitions, comprised of choruses from all of Texas, Arkansas, parts of New Mexico and Louisiana. They have gone on the International stage representing this entire Southwest District of the US, placing in the top 10 choruses in the world. A true chorus of champions, we wel-

come the Heart of Texas Chorus to Harvestfest 2013. On October 2, witness the delightful proof that discipline required for excellence can be invigorating, good natured, and just plain fun. Perfect harmonies peppered with bursts of talent by outstanding soloists keep the audience immersed – the only disappointment of the evening is that it has to end. Enjoy a delicious dinner and an entertaining show while supporting The Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country. We hope you join us.

Harvestfest will be held from 5:308:30pm on Wednesday, October 2, at the GVTC Auditorium on FM 3159. The event includes a homemade stew dinner with cornbread and dessert, a raffle, a homemade cake auction and a silent auction. $15 tickets are available at the museum (830-899-4542), the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce (830964-2223) and the door.

A Day at Work

One day an electrician friend and I were discussing the value of different kinds of work. He said that society may think computers – and the workers who keep them running – are critical to the jobs we do every day, but to consider how valuable they’d be without electricity. Electricians win. We all think that all the time and effort we spend every day at our jobs has little affect on the world or the grand scheme of things; we tend to minimalize what we do. But every spoke of the wheel contributes to carrying the load to its destination. Without store clerks, oil field roughnecks and delivery drivers, Exxon couldn’t pull off what they do; management couldn’t do it alone. Honoring the contribution of the common worker formed the basis for the Labor Day holiday we celebrated this month. Commend yourself. Like Labor Day, back to school days signal summer’s end; the seasons formally change on September 22 when fall arrives. CISD welcomes one brand new elementary school this year and two brand new principals including CLHS’s, who, as I write this, must have plenty of brand new tasks to complete; we wish them well. But all that pales next to the day in September that changed the world that we knew – forever. The impact of 9/11 overshadows it all, affecting our lives to this day. And so we focus our attention on the day we will never forget. Diane Schaule is our Canyon Lake Community Profile this month. She was working at the Pentagon when 125 lives were lost there that day; 23 co-workers perished, barely 150 feet away. To honor First Responders as well as the 2,996 lives that were lost, the community gathers every September 11th at 9am for the Freedom Walk across Canyon Dam. It is decidedly a nonpartisan, non-political event; out of respect, some local offices close to make the walk. The tragedy affected us all – separately as individuals and collectively as a civilized and caring society. For perspective, remember that we weren’t even there. The events of 9/11 made its mark on us nationally as well with repercussions that threaten our democracy of today and more so, of tomorrow. Do we really know what ‘we’ traded away for the promise of safety? When the actions of terrorists created such fear nationwide that we traded our freedoms for the Patriot Act, our democracy may have died that day. I worry that the War on Terrorism may have been lost at the same time we were told it began. See you on 9/11 at 9am at the dam. Your job that day is to leave your politics at home, because that’s where I’ll leave mine. What a refreshing idea! We direct mail to over 10,000 addresses every month!

Canyon Lake Community PROFILE

Diane Schaule

by Sue Sweat

It is an honor to introduce Diane Schaule as our Canyon Lake Community Profile. She has been active in the annual Freedom Walk across the dam, since she moved to Canyon Lake. On September 11 at 9am, the community meets at Overlook Park for the nonpartisan gathering to remember those lost and to honor First Responders of the past and of now. It is a day she does not want us to forget. At work at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, Diane had been working 150 feet from the point of impact. Twenty six of her coworkers died; the rest of them, similar to us but ten fold, were never the same. Unconcerned about herself, Diane’s focus is to honor the thousands of innocent victims who lost their lives that day – the day we were all changed forever... the day we will never forget. Diane attended high school in Parma, Ohio – the city she considers her ‘hometown.’ She attended Kent State University for a couple of years. To frame the era in 1970, she was in town but not on campus when National Guardsmen fired on protesting students, killing 4 and wounding 19. But she was preoccupied with a young soldier in Vietnam. In 1979, Diane married the father of her son, Glenn, in Virginia. Career-wise she was transitioning out of the clerical field and into the professional field we would call human resources. In 1984, she became part of the Pentagon staff but her marriage had not survived. Norm was on his 3rd tour, working at the Pentagon in 1991. Unknown to her, every morning for most of a year, he rode the same metro train as her; he would wait until she boarded to get on. They were the only two on the train car one day. With any seat to choose from, he sat next to her. They got to know each other and married in 1994; her son, Glenn was finishing high school; Norm’s son was grown. Until recently, the Pentagon has been known as the largest office building in the world since it’s groundbreaking ceremony on September 11, 1941. Exactly 60 years later, there were 20,000 military, civilian and contract employees working there daily including heads of branches of the military and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld. At 9:37am, everybody was packed in the few offices with TVs, immersed in and confused by unfolding details soon after the Trade Center was hit. They heard an explosion they assumed was a bomb. The airplane loaded with 500 gallons of jet fuel, the third of four hijacked, descended 2,200 feet at maximum power (530mph!), slamming in at only 14 feet above ground. From impact, it took eight tenths of a second for the tail section to penetrate three walls and land 310 feet deep into the wall. Not counting those on the plane, 125 died in the Pentagon —55 military and 70 civilians. “We stood there for a minute,” Diane said, until someone said, “we should get out.” Diane remembers no evacuation notices, or fire drills over 20 years. They filed out orderly, stumbling out

the door as heroes were running toward then and the building to help. Diane saw no plane parts — or evidence of a plane, but she would not see evidence of a disintegrated one either — nor was she looking for or expecting to see one. As they were first evacuating, the front of the building was in enflamed; some people were cut, disoriented, with clothing torn. Military police had arrived to help immediately. Communications were already cut off. Officials around the cordoned off site continued to push the employees and crowd of onlookers further and further back until “we were across the Potomac River,” she explained, “.. in a parking lot. A truck parked there had their doors open and radio on ... it was the first time we heard about a plane.”Later the truck got them -- overpacked -- close enough to their cars to get home. As thousands were walking across George Washington Parkway to leave New York, Diane described side roads as “chaos at a standstill,” with every face in a daze … in any place she gazed. They were back at work the next day at a different location with no computers and no files. New computers with no data arrived a week later. Six weeks later, with toxic mold brewing, they were allowed back in the seeping water and greasy soot in Hazmat suits to retrieve personal items. She recalled one manager, buried in the rubble for hours, never emotionally recovered to return to work; others were walking casualties with rampant PTSD. Diane retired from civil service at the GS-15 level, the equivalent to full Colonel – and Norm retired as an Air Force Colonel, They walked out together April 20, 2004 looking forward to retirement, wherever that might be. With Norm a Texan at heart from his college days, they came to Canyon Lake for the first time together; on their second day, they bought the home where they now live. Diane was delighted when her new nextdoor neighbor invited her to a style show sponsored by the Pilot Club. Suzanne Higgerson had not attended one before. They were so warmly received, they attended more often and have both since become active in many organizations. Diane attended the Texas Master Naturalists classes, they joined the Canyon Lake Republican Women – Diane is past President of all three. She is a current Board Member of the Canyon Lake Resource and Recreation Center (CRRC), and Secretary for the Canyon Lake Noon Lion’s Club, where Norm is the new president. She is the yearbook coordinator for the Morning Glory Garden Club and in her 8th year helping to organize the Freedom Walk. With CLRW, she is also co-Chairing Jerry Bob’s Fish Fry. While it is true she stays busy with all of that, she has discovered a bond with jewelrymaking that she has learned she can’t stop. She has discovered an artist inside.

Avoid a potential disaster: Establish a buy-sell agreement by Douglas Schroeder

A buy-sell agreement is a binding document that obligates one party to sell and another to buy a portion of, or the total interest of a business upon the occurrence of a specified event. A specified event can be such things as death, disability, divorce, retirement, default by an owner and so on. If one of these events should occur and there is no buy-sell agreement in place, what do you expect would be the result? To answer the question, let’s look at an example. Bill and David are 50/50 owners of a successful Hill Country helicopter rental business. Both are pilots and both have built the business together from the ground up. One day on his way home from the office, Bill gets hit by the proverbial bus and passes away. Due to his untimely death and not being married, Bill’s three children are now the beneficiaries of Bill’s half of the business. For the example, assume the three kids have nothing to do with the business; they don’t know anything about managing a business and none of them are pilots. Because Bill and David didn’t create a buy-sell agreement, 50% of Bill and David’s business is now split three ways between Bill’s kids and they have just as much say in the business decisions as David does. Talk about a potential disaster. If you’re a business owner, tailor the example to your specific situation. Maybe your partner is married and you’re now visualizing your current partner’s spouse as your new business partner. Whatever the situation may be, a little planning now can avoid a lot of problems down the road. The two most common buy-sell agreements are cross pur-

chase and redemption agreements. A cross purchase agreement is designed for one person to buy out the other person’s interest if a special event occurs. A redemption agreement is set up so that the business itself makes the purchase. Both provide flexibility on the details of price, one-time payment or installments over time, and types and terms of the special events that trigger the agreement. Insurance is commonly used in the agreement to ensure there is cash available when the special event occurs. If this column hits home for you, seek professional advice. If you take care of it now, the process and cost will be nothing compared to the alternative. Neither Cetera Investment Services, nor any of its representatives may give legal advice. Consult legal counsel for advice and information concerning your particular circumstances.

Sell your home quickly!

36th Season

by Betty Giannonne

Pricing strategies. Pricing your home is a complex task that requires the expertise of an experienced real estate professional. Consider the following: If the listing price is set too high, potential buyers may be deterred from considering your home. Arriving at the optimal price requires evaluation and understanding of current market conditions, and the marketable features of your home. The closer your home is priced to fair market value when it first comes on the market, the more likely it will sell quickly at the highest price. The higher your home is priced above market value, the fewer number of buyers will look at it. Your Realtor should advise you of many factors when assisting you in determining a listing price for your home. Some of these factors include: (1) Determining the selling price of recently sold properties with attributes similar to yours. (2) Arriving at a listing price that is attractive enough for buyers to request showings and make acceptable offers. (3) Determining what properties are competing for the attention of buyers right now. (4) Determining what properties have not sold. This is a good indicator of what prices buyers are unwilling to pay under current market conditions. Skillful negotiation. When offers are presented, your Realtor should advise you and help obtain the best possible price and terms. Understanding the various standard contract forms and the vast array of contractual issues is key to negotiating the best terms to meet your individual needs. Ensuring that buyers are qualified and knowledgeable about available financing alternatives is of the utmost importance in negotiating a successful sale. Your Realtor should promote your interests and assist in developing a clear and binding contract. Transaction management. Many details must be attended to before a sale becomes final, including inspections, loan documents, contingency removals, and insurance. Experienced Realtors know how difficult and time consuming this process is, and thus, handle the scheduling of inspections, review documents, and make sure all of the required disclosure forms and pamphlets are provided in a timely fashion. A Full Service Realtor will be available to assist and manage this full spectrum of skills, and keep you informed throughout the selling process. Excerpts from Prudential Don Johnson Co. Blog

Pet health insurance: Which provider is right for you?

free consultations

DERMA SALON

by Ryan Bullock, DVM Last month, I discussed how important and useful pet health insurance is for you and your pet. Pet health insurance allows pet owners to use some of the latest advances in veterinary health care to increase their pet’s quality of life or even save their pet’s life. But with so many providers now available, the thought of investigating them all might make your head spin. So, I’m going to do my best to give you the highlights of the top five pet health insurance providers as decided by consumeradvocate.org. Below are their findings on each. #1  Healthy Paws – Pros: Thought to have the best coverage for the unexpected; low cost deductibles from $100; will cover up to 90% of actual vet bill, covers accidents/illnesses without restrictions on hereditary conditions; covers medications, advanced testing and hospital stays. Cons:  Does not cover routine care and will not pay for vet exams or preexisting conditions. #2  Embrace Pet Insurance – Pros: Covers accidents, illness, genetic and chronic conditions; they offer wellness plans that cover routine care, if you have a younger pet – Embrace is a fantastic choice!  Cons: They have age limitations on older pets (but once your pet is covered they are covered for life), they offer drug coverage as an add on (not included with the rest of the policy). #3  Trupanion – Pros: Low cost deductibles; will cover up to 90% of vet bill, covers medications, advanced testing, and hospital stays; no caps on payout amounts. Cons:  Animals not spayed or neutered in the first year are considered breeding animals and cost more to insure. #4  Pets Best Insurance – Pros: Up to 100% reimbursement; low annual deductible from $100. Cons: Doesn’t cover congenital (hereditary) conditions; will not cover items deemed “preventable”; will not cover parasites (fleas, heartworms, roundworms). #5 ASPCA Pet Insurance – Pros: 90% reimbursement; low annual deductible from $100.  Cons: They will only pay $3,000 per incident unless you purchase one of their top two policies. We’ve decided to pick Embrace as the insurance provider to recommend. We think they provide great overall coverage, but are an especially great value for younger pets. We feel strongly that starting your pet on insurance when they are a puppy or kitten is important to make sure they have coverage their entire life and that you get the cheapest rates. If you have a middle aged or senior pet, I would also look closely at Trupanion.

Canyon Lake Views

by Mark Hannah

With school in full swing and fall around the corner, this month I’d like to talk about something one of my clients brought to my attention during a visit. She said that she reads Canyon Lake Views each month and that she has learned a lot from it. She takes the tips and recommendations to heart and tries to simplify her life and save money at the same time. One article she read was about organizing the tools and items that are necessary to complete minor repairs, hang pictures, etc. She gathered and organized her items, found a specific place in her home to keep them, and kept them clean and orderly. While most people find scheduling repairs to be inconvenient, this client looks at small repairs as an adventure. She has both the tools and the time so she tackles what she can and doesn’t consider it a failure if she can’t complete them all. There is a feeling of accomplishment and pride that comes with being able to take care of things yourself, not to mention the money that she ends up saving. She also keeps a list of items that she needs to have repaired by a handyman so that she can have all of the repairs completed during one visit which also ends up saving her money. Many people will find more time on their hands with the kids back in school so why not use that time to organize and simplify your life? This client is a pleasure to work with because, when she schedules a handyman visit, she has already completed certain repairs, has prepared a list of remaining items, and doesn’t end up feeling flustered because she can’t remember what it was that she needed to have done.  When I write an article, my goal is to give you information that will save you time or money and sometimes both. Make time this month to gather the things you can use to make small repairs, clean and organize them, and give them a specific place in your home. You can then start writing a list of items to repair and tackle what you can. Remember, don’t let small things become a big issue, contact a professional handyman and check it off your list.

Alzheimers and exercise

by VJ Tiller According to Beth Howard, in the February March 2012 magazine, Alzheimer’s isn’t inevitable. Many experts now believe you can prevent or at least delay Alzheimer’s disease even if you have a genetic predisposition. Reducing Alzheimer’s disease risk factors like obesity, diabetes, smoking, and low physical activity by just 25% could prevent up to a half million cases of the disease in the United States, according to a recent analysis from the University of California, San Francisco. Ask your doctor about medications, like statins, that can also be the root of memory problems, says Dr. Andrew Weil, the respected integrative medicine M.D. known worldwide. If you only do one thing to keep your brain young, exercise, says Art Kramer, Ph.D., Professor or Psychology and neuroscience at the University of Illinois.  Higher exercise levels can reduce dementia risk  by 30 to 40% compared with low activity levels, and physically active people tend to maintain better cognition and memory than inactive people. Working out helps your hippocampus, the region of the brain involved in memory formation. As you age, your hippocampus shrinks, leading to memory loss. Exercise can reverse this process, research suggests. Physical activity can also trigger the growth of new nerve cells and promote nerve growth. Research shows that even 15 minutes of regular exercise three times a week helped maintain the brain. Older women who participated in a yearlong weight-training program at the University of British Columbia at Vancouver did 13% better on test of cognitive function than a group of women who did balance and toning exercises.    Discovering your mission in life can help you stay sharp, according to Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center, which studied more than 950 older adults regarding this. Participants who approached life with clear intentions and goals at the start of the study were less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease over the following seven years! Seek out new skills. New kinds of learning spurs the growth of new brain cells. When you challenge the brain, you increase the number of brain cells and the number of connections between those cells,” says Keith L. Black, M.D., chair of neurosurgery at CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles . But it is not enough to do the things you routinely do—like the daily crossword. You have to learn something completely new to you like a new language or a new form of bridge or a new form of exercise like Tai Chi,  for example. Villa Jean Tiller has a BS in Behavioral Science and a Masters of Divinity Degree. She practices whole body health daily combining socialization, exercise, good nutrition, environment, and spirituality and will help you with a suitable exercise program, good nutrition plan and a healthy outlook.

Keep cash comin’ in year ‘round by Richard Ferrell

Whether it’s a rush of tubers coming to the Guadalupe River or families staying at a local B&B, seasonal businesses are often faced with the challenge of generating a year’s revenue in just a few months. But there are some ways to keep the cash coming in all year ‘round. To keep the money coming in, even after the key season has passed, you may need to think creatively, learn more about the needs of your customers and test new ideas – even if they may seem a bit zany. Here are five ideas for getting started. 1. Add complementary products and services. One of the most obvious ways to move into a new season is to add products and services to serve the other seasonal needs of your customers. 2. Extend your season. A common mistake among seasonal businesses is to not broaden their selling season by kicking off their marketing earlier and holding sales or promotions immediately after the close of the season. You might find that your marketing opportunities and season was longer than you thought. 3. Generate off-season excitement. In addition to extending your traditional season, try to become good at generating events and excitement during the slower months. 4. Look for niche markets. Seasonal businesses can often find successful income supplements serving niche markets. A bakery that does brisk business during the holidays or during a peak tourist season may find success in its slow months by developing products that sell evenly over the course of a year to a smaller audience, such as gluten-free or sugar-free products for an example. 5. Go where the season is. You have to stop thinking of yourself as solely a seasonal business. Your customers have different needs all year. You just need to find a way to serve those needs in a way that fits with your existing business. So remember to keep the money coming in, even after the season has passed, you must be and think creatively, learn more about the needs of your customers, test new ideas, and get good at running promotions.

When fleas arrive: Stop that! by Terry Schroller You just got back from wherever with Fido and Fifi in tow. They were fine when you left on your “insert correct response” – walk, trip to the park, visit with the kids, vacation…etc). Now you’re back home and your pups are scratching, digging, and hopping around. Upon further inspection, you find stuff on their backs and collar areas that resembles dirt. Much to their dislike, you decide to water torture them with a bath. But what’s this? As their fur begins getting wet, what you thought was dirt is now taking on a reddish tinge. It can’t be! Not on my dogs! Look there’s one now, and another, and another! OMG!! Folks, I am here to tell you, if you have not had fleas yet, you’re probably going to before it’s all over with. Start with rain all the way into the middle of July, add an increasing number of hosts – meaning fur bearing thingies of all kinds, combine with perfect ambient conditions (real-time temperature combined with humidity levels), then add in nomadic mammals and we have ourselves a “Perfect Storm of Flea Infestation.” Do not panic! Meet two of your new best friends – Dawn dishwashing liquid and your vacuum cleaner. Vacuum the bejeebersYour out ofOld every area your darlings frequent. That includes sleeping, eating, and lounging areas, as well as vehicles you Antifreeze Won’t transportWork! them in. Wash bedding or super heat it in the clothes dryer, cleaning the filter frequently. Bathe pets often – once or twice weekly with the Dawn liquid. Do not poison them with shampoos for fleas and ticks, as most of them contain some sort of insecticide that if used too frequently, may harm them. Dawn is very gentle and desiccates the adult flea’s exoskeleton very quickly. What about the outside Bugman? Oh Boy! First make a decision for an area of containment for control. Keep it fenced, mowed, treated and raked. Treat with a water soluble granule that works wet or dry like Over & Out. If you have a wood deck that things fall through or your pet gets under to cool off, it must be treated and raked. If you have a pier and beam foundation or a mobile home and allow animals underneath…Forget it! Stop that!! Seek professional help.

Furniture can impact your comfort and effectiveness. Knowing this can make furniture purchases a bit challenging. Look beyond buying trends and buy furniture based on quality and usefulness. Know your constraints when it comes to furnishings. Consider your space, budget, or any other special needs. Then you can begin to explore your furnishing possibilities. Knowing your style gives you greater flexibility and confidence. You then have the ability to tie in seemingly dissimilar pieces of furniture to create a very personal area. Quality is one of the most important attributes of your purchase so learn to judge a piece for quality. Have you ever found two furniture pieces almost identical with a huge price difference? It boils down to quality, which determines how long your item will last and also retains its look. Quality also determines how comfortable the item is so familarize yourself with cushion density and wearability. Check for sturdiness on wood pieces, and if doors and drawers are properly aligned. Drawers should open and shut smoothly. Most sofas are selected on how the fabric looks and feels. While it’s important to know what’s inside your sofa, also consider what’s on the outside. Consider how much care it will take. Will it withstand heavy use or direct sunlight? Select a fiber that will not only look good, but one that would also wear well in your personal situation. Check the finish of wood pieces by running your hand over it to feel any imperfections. It should feel smooth and pleasing to the touch. Even distressed furniture should have texture, but no rough patches. The good news is that mistakes are entirely preventable. When you start paying attention to your needs before you buy furniture, you are less apt to make them. You don’t want to replace your new piece anytime soon, so do your research. Search the internet, talk with sales personnel, or contact a knowledgeable interior designer for help.

A universal hero by Dr. Franklin D. Watts

I’d like to tell you about one of my great heroes, William Wilberforce. Born in 1759, he was a British philanthropist, social reformer and member of Parliament. But he is remember best for his 26-year-long crusade to outlaw slavery in Great Britain. This was accomplished three days before his death in 1853. Wilberforce was a wealthy man with no need for an expectation of earning his keep and could have lived a live of leisure. But, under John Wesley’s influence, Wilberforce became a Christian and then a member of the Clapham sect, a group of Christian Parliamentarians who dedicated themselves to working for prison reform and the improvement of education and health care. Informed by his Christian conviction regarding the equality of all human beings, Wilberforce stood firmly against onslaughts of criticism and opposition from Parliament, the business community, and even from some members of the clergy.  Wilberforce’s accomplishment inspired and motivated the America abolitionists including Charles Finney and Harriet Beecher Stowe. His life is a shining example of an evangelical Christian who was not interested only in heavenly reward, but worked passionately and tirelessly for earthly social reform. He was tough minded with an iron will and he took on one of the most egregious practices of society – the reduction of human beings made in God’s image to the level of chattel property. Wilberforce’s life story is one of the greatest episodes of the practical application of Christian theology to the problems of society. He should be a hero for Christians and secularists alike. May his number increase! Dr. Franklin Watts, Pastor of Hill Country Bible Church, received his doctorate from Vanderbilt University. He is also a social work consultant for nine nursing homes. The church is located at 20885 FM 306 at Tamarack Drive (across from Papa Gallos). Contact him at the church office at 830-935-2945 or by cell 210-415-2365.

Driver’s license revisited

COMAL FLOORS & INTERIORS

Making your home beautiful ~ one floor at a time!

by Charles Sullivan

It’s a serious issue. Everyone needs to make a copy of their driver’s license. If you have had a moving violation, you’ll need it to check DPS records to see if you have any surcharges due. If you do, pay them or face the possibility of being jailed for “Driving While License is Invalid.” I think these surcharges are the worst form of double jeopardy. In addition, because our Legislature allows the notification to be by regular US Mail, they don’t have to follow Texas Rules of Civil Procedure. One real horror story involved my client who moved to Louisiana, after getting and paying a ticket for no proof of insurance. When she moved back to Texas, she discovered a surcharge was due, which she also quickly paid. Six months later, it still showed her license was invalid. This is sickening. She had her three young children in the car – and she was arrested. Thankfully, we are trying to work this out with the State, but if she is convicted, her driver’s license will be suspended for two years – four times longer than the six months she would have had it suspended for a DWI. This makes no sense, period. I hope to have a client one day who can afford to challenge the Constitutionality of this arrest and double jeopardy, but fear it would go all the way to the Supreme Court! If you have been ticketed anytime in the past, it would be a good idea to log on and check your status and possibly avoid be1/8 2010 VGuide @ $130 -- cgGaramond Bold is font ing charged with a crime and the associated costly fines.

You can sue for Breach of Contract, or call the police agency in your area and request the contractor be charged with theft.

CASA’s Last Advocacy Training for 2013

The most recent class of Court Appointed Special Advocates was sworn in July 30. The last training sessions of the year will begin in September in San Marcos and New Braunfels. The July class of advocates will soon be assigned to children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect that are now placed in the state’s care. As advocates, the volunteers will get to know everyone in the children’s lives in order to provide recommendations to the family court judge. They speak up for the children in court and advocate for the child’s best interest. In 2012, CASA volunteers served 372 children in the four-county service area of Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe and Hays Counties, but there were an additional 408 children who did not have the voice of a CASA. Volunteers are assigned to one case at a time; therefore, CASA can only serve as many children as there are volunteers. Please don’t wait until next year; a child needs you now. If not you and you know someone who would make a great CASA volunteer, please share these training dates.

Adopt-a-Highway projects can be a hot and dirty job, but the satisfaction of keeping your stretch of road pristine and giving back to the community overcomes all of that. The bonus for the CLHS Octagon Club, is that they are also rewarded by a very special Optimist. He is known as "Pizza Man" by his teammates of the "Blow Hard Team" that inflates the tunnel at the varsity football home games. Peter Parziale wanted to make the highway clean-up even more fun for the kiddos and decided to throw a special pizza party after each event. Their next clean up is Saturday, September 14th. Put on a good pair of shoes and join them! For more information, call Suzanne at 830-935-2578.

There may be lots of reasons why your dog needs training

We Can Help! 

Are you worried about coming home to torn up furniture?

Are you unable to walk your dog without a pinch collar?

Is your dog dragging you around the neighborhood instead of you walking your dog?

Is your dog jumping up to greet people, including jumping up on your small children?

Does your dog suffer from phobias or depression?

Is your dog aggressive towards other dogs or people?

Is your best friend simply too much dog for you or your family to handle?
