Mailbag CLASP helps EMS do better job To the Editor There has been controversy on the subject of CLASP and Some are of the opinion that our present am bulance and BLS Basic Life are adequate for saving There are those who still believe in the old Haul em and Dump em as EMS believe that the better educated we are in treating trauma and acute heart diabetic the better your chance as a Many hours of training are devoted to becoming cer as well as hours spent in Continuing Education Classes and on the job by men and women alike who may go out on a call any hour of the day or night in any weather and have to be at regular jobs the next With your moral and financial we hope to continue advancing our skills and knowledge as well as equipment and ambulances to further benefit the CLASP is not a separate but an extension of the The majority of your firefighters are the same volunteers who will be on the ambulance that comes to your home or the scene of an accident when you need We are not trying to replace old ambulances with new The old ones will go the stations that have no am thereby cutting the time element sometimes in giving a heart attack or trauma victim a better chance of We all hope to never have need of these but the fact the incident of heart at is on the rise in our rapidly growing Our present means of BLS Basic Life is restrictive in many areas such as the ad ministering of that could make the difference in life or Our capabilities are extremely in stabilizing an unstable ALS Advanced Life Support could change I Right now we have attendants who are concerned enough to become trained in special skills needed for Without your vital we cannot exist as an the undersigned active members of the CLVFD and EMS thank you for backing us in our effort to better serve For those we always need more volunteers for the Thank Glenda EGA Local DRT against passage of HB 470 Tb the Editor It is my understanding that House Bill 470 is pen ding before the and that it is sponsored by a Dallas Republican legislator The entire membership of the Ferdinand Lindheimer Chapter Daughters of the Republic of Texas wishes to go on record as 100 percent against its Texas Independence Day and San Jacinto Day are the only two official State holidays that belong to Texas alone Had there been no March 2 Declaration of In there could have been no victory at San Jacinto nor a February when Texas and Governor Henderson were inaugurated as of the United States instead of Such thinking that wishes to drop March 2 as a State holiday is indicative of those in 19041905 who wanted to raze the chapel on the Alamo grounds and turn it into a parking lot Too much of our splendid heritage has already been eroded by selfish Texans and by Texanscomelately for selfish Should Mark White have the chance to veto this it might even earn a reelection for him Agnes President Ferdinand Lindheimer Chapter DRT Henry outlines position on workshop Dear Editor 1 would like to explain my position with reference to the Heralds Feeling Left Out article in Fridays March 15 May I set the record straight The letter to the workshop participants was written by me and mailed over my not Jeff It was sent to each of the invited participants and its sole purpose was to inform each of those individuals of the potentially embarrasing aspects of the Several of the recipients of the letter have thanking me for that The article mentions as participants various rivers Therein lies our To represent the Comal Dry Comal Creek and Landa Park representatives of RALAC and COREP were These two groups are private with no mandate from any government They represent the antitourist antigrowth element of our No one in business along the rivers has ever been included in any of their A breakdown of invited participants is as follows 25 governmental and educational leaders 5 business people from the Guadalupe River 3 residents of New Braunfels representing and the Rivers Committee 2 Chamber of Commerce officials p business people from the Dry or Landa Park Lake Please note The river resorts and tourist attractions are major taxpayers contributing to the maintenance of this Your article Kyle said other interested people attending the workshop would have an opportunity to That is in direct conflict with the words of Mayor who stated in a workshop session that anyone who could come to the meeting and At a meeting of the River Conservation and Preser vation on October the members of the committee adopted the following and this is a quote from the minutes of the Only com mittee members will have input regarding our recom mendations to City If citizen input was not allowed at the committee meetings which called for this and if Mayor Tieken says we will only be able to observe the does anybody really believe the businessman will have a voice Betty Walls I think its going to be a totally controlled open They were just trying to keep it to a manageable Thats exactly what we are concerned The meeting will be totally controlled by those antagonistic to the tourist business community and totally managed by them to stop those business people with jobs and futures at stake from voicing In two separate the owners and managers of the lodging industry unanimously agreed Room sales tax should not be raised at this Advertising monies were best used if under contract with the Chamber of and New Braunfels infra structure could not justify any expenditure to promote convention How did Council respond to this unanimous business community Room sales tax was Whiel agreeing in Council Session on March 4 to the contracts with the Chamber of the ghost so rapidly shoved through Council by so called emergency ordinance on March with no opportunity for examination or discussion did not even mention the Chamber or the Council seems totally dedicated to pursuing an ad vertising course which would be a total waste of tax So I ask you Is it wise for those of us who have worked many years to build our business to allow this group of uninformed people to bring in a group of Federal bureaucrats to regulate and harass us a la FEMA Or should we continue to stand up for those free enterprise principals we still believe to be so precious Just as the free press is willing to fight for their guaranteed first amendment so are the business willing to fight the inroads made by a socialistic bureaucracy against the free enterprise system that has made this Country and City what it is Henry Editors note The Henrys attended the workshop Wednesday and Thursday and participated in The workshop group formulated a 12member com which will include a representative from city based resorts and water to develop a management plan for

line To the Editor Sir I am outraged at the apparent seeming ignorance of a political cartoon that appeared in your paper on the thirteenth of March of this Granted the world isnt always a bed of roses and the United States certainly seems to do its share to aid in problems and for this reason we need a certain amount of comedy in our Political cartoons step in at this point and offer a bit of humor to what would otherwise be a lot of Some issues are more important than others and jokes are not fitting in these One such case was the political cartoon depicting an abortion clinic surrounded by barb On the door of the clinic is a sign that states million 1984 and below the cartoon is the question American I do not know if the cartoonist named Baker ever realized it or not but an abortion clinic is not a fastfood restaurant where it proudly broadcasts its total number served on the entrance I do not think abortion is the best way to handle situations but I do know that in many cases the child would lead a life that would be terrible and probably become something that society would look at and Unless there is a better solution that all you would be heroes can come up with rather than abortion provided that the children could not be considered an outcast from society in the future due to and various other reasons do not give cheap rather look at the Marty Nealeigh II ATWTHIS
