New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 31, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas N6W Bfauhfels pinions Dave Editor and General Manager Ha Managing Editot Andy Rooney Trick to vacation lies in letting world pass bv for all the vacation areas that about been to rf W J The thing all from for a real rest is We need to get away from There are times when I get sick and tired of being so much like myself every day of my including on When you go away on vacation with the it isnt much of a vacation for you or There are too many people at all the good Maybe we ought to have a national lottery and draw for the weeks of the year that we take our It would thin out the crowds and be better for all the vacation areas that have either too many people or not I dont notice too many bad things about getting older every year except that it hurts more to go The water seems colder There ought to be a limit to how much time anyone has to spend in a car on Places that are hard to get to are not necessarily about having been to every one of the 50 states on vacation or they talk about having been to all except North Dakota and Alaska or Montana and It always sounds to me as if theyve had some pretty terrible vacations just traveling to get someplace so they can say theyve been I dont care whether theyve been to all 50 states or What did they do that was or wnat did tnev do that TH Ot early 3S deendable interesting when they got Lre There are people who hke to talk when I first awaken that the world passing me The trick of a real vacation is not in getting over the feeling world is passing you but in not caring whether or not it The biggest change in my daily schedule during vacation is when I take my During most of the year I take a shower every morning and put on clean When Im on vacation I shower before dinner and put on clean clothes In the I put them on Its amazing how much money it costs to do not much of anything when youre on WHAT HISTORIC WILL OCCUR ON AN UPCOMING SHUTTLE f Most of the things I do that are healthy for me are not things I do i almost always run up for just to get it over and Ive never liked sitting out in the sun to get a Even before the doctors started telling us how dangerous too much sun I hated I eat too much on vacation of I eat too much when Im not on One of the many things I dont like about vacation is that you always end up counting the number of days you have There are people who enjoy planning a vacation more than the enjoy taking Then the day the they start talking about whei and how theyre going I have more vacation shirts than have time off to wear I keep buying new sports shirts usuall end up wearing my ol Some the right occasion to wear my new shirt never The biggest trouble with my vacation this year is that we haven had enough rainy You do things on a rainy day that you dont do any other I love a rainy day when you cant go RNALW James Kilpatrick Some questions are better left to the people WASHINGTON Its tinkering time on Capitol Hill a that for tinkering with the The Senate Judiciary Committee has reported two versions of an amend ment to compel a balanced federal An amendment on the matter of prayer in public schools is actively pending and could come out of committee at any It is a curious Here we have a conservative administration in the White The Senate is con trolled by a presumptively con servative Senators Orrin Hatch of Utah and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina are universally adjudged to rank among the most conservative members of the One of the tenets of con servatism is resistance to Why this rush to change the supreme law of the land To this rhetorical my friends respond that conservatism does not oppose all change it op poses only unnecessary The proposed changes are Therefore conservatives should support I dont buy the sup posed but let us consider the proposals at After six years of active effort and at least 10 different the Senate committee last week came up with a balanced budget amendment that at least has a consitutional It says Outlays of the United States for any fiscal year shall not exceed receipts to the United States for that unless threefifths of the whole number of both Houses of Congress shall provide for a specific excess of outlays over The Congress may waive the provisions of this article for any fiscal year in which a declaration of war is in That version is an enormous im provement over the in comprehensible drafts that have been circulated in recent It is better in every way than an alter native version simultaneously reported by the This alternative would lead us into the foggy swamps of a tax increase thatcouldnot increase bya rate greater than the rate of increase in national income in the previous That is and gobbledegook has no place in the Yet even the fattrimmed version ought to be The key sen tence is the proposed amendment were in effect it would compel Congress if any power could compel Congress to impose stunning increases in taxes or to make draconian slashes in The path to a balanced budget does not lie over a On the heels of the two versions of a balanced budget amendment is a resolution on prayer Nothing in this Constitution shall be construed to prohibit individual or group silent prayer or reflection in public Neither the United States nor any state shall require any person to participate in such prayer or nor shall they encourage any particular form of silent prayer or Viewed this is not Not mind but not That Yencourage is soft around the But conservative maxims teach us that when it is not necessary to it is necessary not to The most recent opinion of the Supreme striking down an Alabama law authorizing a minute of silence for voluntary prayer or was a stupid and unwarranted Even it appeared evident that if the Alabama Legislature had not tried so hard to outcute the the statute would have been Justice OConnor it is hard to support an implication that 20 silent children threaten an establishment of state This issue of school prayer may safely be left to to and to the obduracy of oldfashioned teachers in the Bible They dont care what the high court says theyre going to bow A balanced budget will have to be left to the wisdom of the or to their in electing members of If we elect candidates with sound we may get a sound If we we MARCIA FEiwowsAcnve SEARCH A I v Mailbag Reader disagrees with tax assessment To the Editor We believe the copy of the enclosed letter is Since the contents should be of grave concern to many Coma County residents and we thought that it may be worth publishing in the You may not agree with our but several do that we have talked To not even a courtesy reply has been We enjoy the and par ticularly the city and county news that it We have been Comal County residents for over eleven years just hope that taxes do not force us to The enclosed letter is as follows Gentlemen We are unable to agree with your Current Taxable Value nor the Current Estimated It is impossible for 1 Comal County taxable values to increase over 50 2 Comal Independent School District taxable values to increase over 60 3 Comal County Farm Road and Flood Taxable values to increase over 260 4 Current Estimated Taxes to increase a Imost 80 And the above is from 1984 to 1985 ONLY ONE YEAR What are they going to be in two eight years Heaven forbid It certainly appears from the above that Comal County is trying to discourage individuals from buying or building homes in the And you probably do not but can you possibly imagine how these increases affect those of us who are on a fixed income Such as widows and those retired persons who rely on Social Security It must be real nice to sit back and raise taxes so that salaries can be raised at the homeowners Why not try to trim the budget and cut expenses All you can think about is Even the Internal Revenue Service knows the meaning of the word Or is this word not in your vocabulary Your very serious consideration must be given to lowering of taxes for the benefit of all concerned Comal County William Frobese Baker is talented teacher To the Editor This is in response to a letter published July Coach Bob Baker is a multi talented First and Bob Baker is a devoted family Not only is Coach Baker an outstanding he is an ex cellent classroom an ac complished
