Our HZ Focus series for the month of July, which runs each Sunday, has been on the state of matrimony — with a special look at what that means locally.
The world will always need police officers. In places like Texas, Comal County and New Braunfels, it will need more of them in the years ahead as the population continues to boom.
It’s going to be hot this summer. It’s Texas. It almost always is. With that heat comes big electric usage as houses and businesses all over the state use their air conditioning to keep from melting.
Independence Day is always a big celebration. From parades to fireworks and barbecue bashes to long floats on the rivers with you and thousands of your closest friends, it offers something for everyone.
Congress is debating emergency humanitarian aid to care for migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. The need is obvious. With virtually no barrier to stop them, thousands of migrants are crossing illegally into the United States every day. More than a million will come this year. U.S. law preven…
We like the sound of that following the Red Raider track team’s exciting triumph over the weekend at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in which Tech captured its first men’s athletics national title at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin. Officially, the Red Raiders finished with 60 points in liter…
The first official days of summer is still a little over a week away, but already we’ve seen days hovering near 100 degrees with heat indexes well into the danger zone.
The crowd that gathered in downtown New Braunfels on Monday morning to honor Memorial Day by remembering those brave men and women who gave their lives in defense of freedom was not a surprise.
Monday is more than a day off of work. Monday is more than the end of a three-day weekend. Monday is more than the unofficial start of the summer season. Monday is more than a time to get together with family and friends over barbecue and beer.
With recent changes on the Supreme Court, states across the country are vying to pass the most restrictive abortion legislation possible in hopes of setting up a judicial challenge to the landmark Roe v. Wade case.
Last week there were two events that brought New Braunfels residents and members of the local police force together — the annual Kops and Kids and Coffee with a Cop.
Too often our culture treats mental health challenges as the punchline to a joke. It uses “crazy” and “insane” as a label to define people who are neither. It takes diagnoses like bipolar and OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and turns them into personality traits and quirks.
Watching the business reports on television, it can seem like the American economy runs on the backs of business behemoths, but there’s far more to what makes this country hum than Apple, Tesla and General Motors.
You can look at the low turnout in Saturday’s bond election from a number of different viewpoints, but no matter how you slice it, it was a disappointing showing from a growing city that considers itself politically active.
Bills in the Texas Legislature that would make it more difficult for cities to regulate weekend party palaces peddled through short-term rental sites should die in committee.
It’s a rite of passage that we all go through twice a year. Most of us hate it. Its only good purpose at this point is to remind us to check and change the batteries in our smoke detectors.
In a world with finite resources, being good at something can be a bit of a double edged sword. Comal ISD is learning that first hand as their special education program continues to grow rapidly — all because they seem to excel at something that so many districts struggle with.
On Monday, residents in New Braunfels will go to the polls in early voting for members of City Council and New Braunfels ISD school board — but the biggest question on the ballot asks whether voters should approve the four bond propositions totaling $120 million.
New numbers from the Census Bureau this week tell us what we already knew. Comal County is continuing to grow at a clip that most of the country can’t match, and it shows no signs of slowing.
In Tuesday’s newspaper, The Herald-Zeitung did something that it rarely does. There was an international story on the front page. Even more rare, there was a photo that went with it — as flames roared around the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France.
