of the City Council meeting July and the discussion between the City Council and the Housing Authority concerning the request by the Authority for the City to waive the payment in lieu of taxes I would like to correct some errors in your coverage on page 2A of the July The Housing Authority and the City have a mutual agreement called the Community Services This agreement was executed many years ago between the two In this agreement the City of New Braunfels agrees to assume financial responsibility for the community spaces owned by the Authority to the extent that the City allows the Authority to keep the PILOT payment to cover the costs incurred by the Authority through the donation of our community rooms to the Community Council of South Central Texas who provide social The Community Council provides an Elderly Nutritional Program at Laurel Plaza which provides a hot meal five days per week to those 60 years of age or At Villa Serena Apartments the Community Council provides Head Start Day Care not a playground Head Start is an educational program for low income The center at Villa Serena provides this service for some 33 children at any given time during the school Both programs provide basic social with the Nutritional Program serving approximately 90 meals per The Housing Authority representatives feel that these programs are a vital part of this communitys social service network and simply do not wish to see these programs lose their City While we are definitely aware of fund raising we do not feel as if these programs should be dismissed

children of this Your paper has done an excellent job in the past of representing us to the community and we hope to have more contact with you in the Rebecca Camareno It would be easier to fix things if something else didnt always break while you were fixing the first I dont ever recall starting one repair job that didnt lead to I think this accounts for why so many people are afraid to go to a They arent worried about what they know they Theyre worried about what the doctor might Around the this is especially This morning the bulb burned out in the overhead fixture in the Its an easy thing to change a lightbulb so I went to get the small stepladder hanging on two hooks in the As I took the ladder I noticed one of the hooks was loose and made a mental note to fix it before I put the ladder I set up the ladder in the kitchen but as I pput my foot on the first step I noticed a screw was missing from the metal hinge that flexes open and keeps the ladders legs a fixed and safe distance It seemed best to fix that before putting in the new bulb so I went to the kitchen drawer where I keep a small assortment of emergency tools and I found a screw that was the right size but it was a Phillips I went to my shop and got another On my way I came through the screen door that opens into the dining room and noticed the door wasnt closing I realized thats why weve been getting so many flies and mosquitos in the The screen door has one of those automatic doorclosers on it that I hate and it needed If its I though to I might as well do it right now and get the door problem out of the way while I have the screwdriver in my I reached up for the adjusting screw in the door closer but it was a ittle too high and I couldnt quite get my hand in the right position to turn the I first Ill fix the ladder so I can change the then Ill bring the ladder into the dining room and fix the screen I fixed the ladder got into an arguement about what size bulb to use and replace the burned out bulb with a The light fixture has a globe thats held to a metal rim on the ceiling with three set I took the globe off and juggled it in one hand while I balanced myself on the ladder and unscrewed the dead bulb with the other In the process of getting the new bulb out of my I dropped one of the three set screws on the kitchen floor so I climbed down the threw the old bulb in the wastebasket and got down on my hands and knees to look for the missing It was so dark in the kitchen without the light on that I couldnt find the screw so I went to the living room where I thought Id left my While I was looking for my the telephone The call was from a second cousin who lives in He wanted to talk about a mutal relative whos We bought a new telephone recently and Ive been trying to fix up a system so I could have it ring in my Id done something wrong with the wires because I could barely hear my cousins Ill have to call you I trying to reach Eugene without Ill call you back on the other I yelled again and hung The donwstairs telephone is in a closetlike cubbyhole off the dining room and for a moment after I hung up I just sat What should I do first Do I call back right away or do I continue looking for my glasses in the living room so 1 can go back to the kitchen to find the screw I dropped on the floor so I can replace the globe on the light fixture and take the ladder to the screen door in the dining room Sometimes my world falls apart faster than I can fix Your representatives Edmund Kuempel Texas House of Representatives Box 2910 Texas 78769 John Traeger Texas
