New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 15, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Opinions Dave Editor and Publisher Jim Managing Editor Editorial Rollback unwise for an underfunded city New Braunfels City Council has made what some call the hard decision to increase ad valorem property taxes to barely slay within survival levels for municipal This weeks budget hearing saw only a few people address the council in a negative Council appears to not want to raise the tax rate as high as first recommended by city but still our elected officials were clear that some like personal use of police vehicles and some kind of salary increases for city are What council will wind up authorizing is about a 26 percent increase in the tax And even then our level of municipal services will there will be opponents of this at tempt to balance the citys books and provide for the common welfare of our Surely the vast majority of prudent New Braunfelsers cannot argue with the logic of adequate ci ty As the council and city staff fine tune the budget for even tual we should support their A rollback may be but if it comes to that there is no reason to think it will And we should do all we can to

Braunfels WASHINGTON Let us hear three cheers and a tiger for Richard The former ma jor general in the Air Force emerged from four days of battering examination last week as a tough old bird Who did his damnedest to support the polices of his I admire the All this talk is about Secords breaking the law at the moment is just that In one these hearings ended at the moment they when Daniel presiding judge at this unprejudiced and bipartisan convicted all the accused before a word of testimony had been Inouyes opening statement was straight from the trial of the knave of hearts Sentence verdict after The gentleman from Hawaii already had concluded that everybody was guilty of so off with their Howell Heflin of who is old enough and ex perienced enough to know rattled on that Secord should be Hokum Let us get back to When this whole bizarre affair the Reagan adminsitration had three goals in The first was to put out feelers toward reap procbement with The second was to obtain release of our The third was to aid the Contras of Nicaragua in their effort to overthrow the communist government The National Security Council drew Richard private into the pursuit of these As 1 he did his The goals were they led the presi dent into the hypocritical position of publicly op posing the sale of arms to Iran while privately he was condoning The president had opposed negotiations with terrorists obsessed with the humanitarian goal of freeing the he nonetheless authorized This ad and from time to time the Congress has emphatically sided with the Contras in seeking to prevent a Soviet base in Secord felt that he was carrying out the policies of his and Secord was plainly What is it that Secord supposedly is guilty of David felt especially outraged that Secord had conspired to keep Con gress in the He had not timely informed the senators distinguished colleagues of what was But the senators distingished col leagues leak like sections of rotten To have informed the Congress would have been to in form The Washington Post within the Covert may it please the must operate The very Constituion itself recognizes this truism The houses of Con gress are to publish their excep ting such parts as may in their judgement re quire Now and then the Senate does meet in secret but every reporter knows a member who will blab 10 minutes It is said that Secord violated the Boland This piece of legislative folly was in effect only from through Some of the evidence amassed last week antedated the effective period other actions came The amendment stupidly for bade any directly or through the expenditure of public in aid of the Con In this whole matter of the Contras and the Congress has behaved like the legendary who was in gone During the roughly 14 months of this dumb Congress was out At we are in Do not hold your breath until a grand jury a trial jury and the judge imposes puniish The law is If I were sitting on a I would vote to acquit without leaving the and I would then propose a medal for Look at his four days on the He never pleaded the Fifth He sought no im munity from subsequent He answered questions directly and without evasion of any Under the badgering of Senate Counsel Arthur he got testy toward the but Liman would bring out testiness in a reverend Read the record from to bottom there is not a scintilla of evidence to prove that Secord himself profiteered from his patriotic It is completely understandable in a complex opera tion of this kind that not every penny can be ac counted Secord was not operating under the eye of He was trying to keep the Contras cause Congress ought to do This week we hear from Robert former national security Much more testimony will be taken before this dumb show If every witness is as candid and
