New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 9, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 4 New Braunfels Tuesday April Saturdays elections caused confusion for euphoria for see bellow O pinions HvraldZtitung Dave General Manager Editor Robert Johnson Confusion marks local elections Its always nice to tell someone hes Its not much fun to tell someone hes Dana Stell did the former Saturday I did the latter a few years the Heralds City Hall called District 3 candidate Ed Sciantarelli at home Saturday night shortly after the results came Sciantarelli won defeating two other candidates without a Dana soon found out that Ed didnt know hed been Did you know you won she I really All right he turning to a group of supporters at his he Hey everybody I won The resulting background noise made the rest of the interview a little Dana said I sort of envied Five years I called Doug Miller for a only to discover much to my chagrin that he didnt yet know hed been beaten by Gerald That realization took me I remember apologizing profusely for being the bearer of bad He took it pretty considering the Debbie our Comal ISO had an interesting evening as With three candidates running for three trustee she thought she was in for a dull evening of waiting for the votes and writing what would essentially be a A lastminute writein campaign in Bulverde nearly elected two candidates whose names werent on the ballot David Beene and Tony Until the last and largest box came Tom Potter was the only one of the three candidates on the ballot in the top Beene and Chase were in second and third until the Canyon High votes dropped them to fourth and But the highlight of her evening was tracking down Potter after the votes had been Calling his she heard a little girls voice on the other end say that her father and mother were She didnt know exactly where they had But my grandmother probably and shes in the bathtub she Debbie gave her time to dry and called Grandma had a thick German and it was a while before Debbie finally found Potter at a victory party for San Antonio City Councilman Jim who had been reelected Another candidate was out of town but still got a quote in the Victorious New Braunfels ISO candidate Don Bedford was vacationing in Rockport Saturday and called the NBISD office for the results while our Lillian was She made the most of her opportunity for an realizing she wouldnt get Judging from some of the comments I voters around town had an interesting day themselves trying to find their polling I count myself in that since I went to the wrong poll Its not surprising there was City voters in Districts 3 and 4 were electing their first representatives under the citys new voting NBISD voters in Districts 2 and 4 had new polling places to get used to only Districts 3 and 5 had elected trustees under NBISDs new Add that to the fact that NBISD was electing a District 1 trustee and two atlarge trustees and you have the right ingredients for The jagged boundary lines in the NBISD districts didnt For my street Merriweather is in three different If you live west of Unicorn youre in District 2 if youre between Unicorn and Old District 3 and Old McQueeney to IH District Since I live in District couldnt vote in the city election and when I left to vote in I had forgotten what district I was I did have it in my mind that I voted at Seele although that was New Braunfels Middle School is two blocks from my and here I was going half way across town to En route to I saw the sign District 3 votes here in front of New Braunfels Presbyterian figured I had made a mistake and went there Of I found out I had been right the first time when I discovered the church was the citys District 3 polling After voting at I asked one of the poll workers if anyone was confused under

underlying any armscontrol agreement is the number of nuclear warheads the Soviet Union can bring hurtling down on this Yet the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency dont agree on this basic fact of life of death and their disagreement is The CIA thinks the Russians have intercontinental ballistic missile or roughly three times the The DIA insists that the correct figure on Soviet warheads is or roughly four times the a o o a The DIA has declared its higher figure in its last secret reports on the As late as last week some analysts in the DIA were trying to have their estimate published in the latest issue of Soviet Military Thats the booklet that is issued as part of the Defense Departments effort to persuade the American public and our European allies that the Soviet threat is real and But at the last the DIA chickened out and allowed publication of the CIAs less scary The new booklet was scheduled for release last week originally PONTPtAY PUM0WJH UNCLa YOU MAY THERBSNOHAWUUSM 6LIN6 IN on until some Pentagon official wise in the ways of public relations pointed out that it would then be dubbed the April Fools Why cant the two intelligence agencies agree How can they be warheads apart Quite intelligence on someone elses warheads is hard to Theres no way to count whats inside of ICBMs nose as its photographed in the So its basically a matter of guesswork based on known A Soviet SS18 could hold some two dozen On that both agencies I PONT WOW FORSVfZ WHAT THAT AIR GRIPS BUTI6OT A PRETTY TO UNIOAPA I CAN FORA 430MILUOH I 5HIPMBM 7HOU6H7HB YOUCHGAP ANY OFFHAND PIANO r But the CIA believes the Soviets are abiding by the warheadlimitation portion of the unratified Salt II which sets a maximum of 10 warheads per The assumes that the Soviets attached as many warheads as they have successfully tested and thats 14 per With more than 300 SS18s that accounts for much of the discrepancy between CIA and DIA The remaining 700 or 800 involve recently deployed new ICBM in cluding the mobile SS16 missiles banned by SALT So whos right In this wed be in cluded to lean toward the Though the Pentagon agency has gone off halfcocked at more often that not its view of the Soviet threat has proved correct over compared with the CIAs usually rosier An example of this occurred in when the CIA finally agreed that its estimate of Soviet military spending had been seriously understated by 50 percent for the year for When the embarrassing figures could no longer be the CIA brought in its word doctors to sugarcoat the bitter pill of confessed In its topsecret the CIA wrote The Soviets evidently have been spending substantially more rubles for defense than we had previously The in dications for higher Soviet defense costs do not mean that we have discovered new defense programs or that the threat to the or its allies has They do mean that Soviet defense in dustries are far less efficient relative to their counterparts than we once and that the burden of defense programs on the Soviet economy greater than we previously New information has come from a number of different sources according to this total defense spending was expected to amount to almost 50 billion rubles in about twice our estimate for that What a relief to learn that such a whopping mistake wasnt serious after Declining dollar What does the dollars recent decline mean for you One internal government document that foresees a 15 percent decline in the dollars international value this year predicts that the cost of living will go up for If the dollars decline is it would increase the inflation rate over a long the analysis Thats because well no longer be able to import consumer goods at bargain Everything from foreign cars to French wine will cost more and this will relieve the pressure on domestic producers to cut prices to the Americans traveling abroad also will find fewer The bright side of thie of is that the declining dollar will give American industry a better chance to compete in world markets its products will no longer be priced beyond And that should help redress the recordbreaking trade deficits of recent The development may also slow the flight of hardhit companies overseas in search of cheaper production costs and healthier If this offshore trend it will cost an estimated 3 million actual and potential jobs by next the experts Another thing the dollars decline will accomplish is a merciful end to suggestions that the trade imbalance be cured by slap ping a 20 percent surcharge on all That would only invite retaliation by other countries and dry up export
