dream and initiate a national day of prayer for Would that rile or again would you file suit As a taxpayer I have and one of those rights is to expect a symbol of what many of us believe Christmas is all somehow displayed on the grounds of state property I help support You help I and perhaps would like to hear the The world in solemn darkness lay cut My own solution to this particular symbolism nativity scene or Christmas tree versus no symbolism is portable like everything else in our society excuse 1 mean Great Society no reference to religion intend a mobile Christmas scene that could be wheeled on and off state property as easily as the average person can excuse Jingle In much the same way the law upholds the right of taxpayers and others to the mobile Christmas scene could be issued a couldnt it and if why not Im one who believes that such Christmas scenes and the Lords Prayer have a much more viable socially redeeming value than a host of other passions let loose on society with one phrase alone socially redeeming were all agreed an atheist has her and would certainly be entitled to pre sent her side I mean to preserve integrity and equality of informa let us enjoin the forces of atheism to produce their own mobile also to be pulled off and on according to One can only wonder at large what would be and how in the nothingness and darkness of atheism might be So there it display and above all Merry Christmas Belle Arnold Real costs add up quickly Editor Much has been said at several re cent meetings concerning how much or how little it would cost to run the proposed City of Canyon On page 4A of the 20 San Antonio Comal County Com missioner Clyde Jacobs is Its going to be a very expensive from a taxation stand it scares me to Lets look at a few anticipated costs for an average Some sort of City Hall will be say rented at per month per Those pushing for incorpora tion say we can operate with an un paid mayor and five unpaid coun These people will need to be bonded and will want to travel to other areas to study Estimated cost per The proponents say we must have a paid city His would run per we dont believe any of us are naive enough to believe one city marshall will be able to patrol a ci ty of 25 square miles and population 24 hours a seven days a Add just five more patrolmen with and you add another per For these people to be able to communicate with each other they will need a twoway radio the cost of which we will not add in as a yearly but it will re quire some four dispatchers and whichever one is on duty during weekdays can double as city clerk per There are some 215 miles of streets within the area to be Based on figures received from con the bare maintenance ditch and rightofway cleaning would cost about per mile per year per Many of these streets or need Doing this work on a 20year cycle would cost about per mile for or per All of this work would have to be planned and supervised so we would need a city engineer a a city treasurer and city These two could probably be part time for a while a The for the protection of itself and its would have to carry liability and other in surance a Many of these are minimum figures and could increase dramatically within a few But add up the figures and you will find an annual expense budget of for operations How long would it be before we had a big bond issue for capital improvements to add to this total These figures have been compiled and presented for your information by Jake Jessup Ed Zwald Ralph Osburg Your Representatives Ronald Reagan President of the

why Gary Hart is going for it said Slats Because he believes the country desperately needs his original ideas I figure its the only way the poor guy can get out of the Thats most it must have been tough for the last six I how many times can a guy tell his wife that hes going to run down to the corner store to get the papers or a pack of smokes and hell be back in two or three Or that he got snowed in downtown and has to sleep in his of in Come it is entirely possible that he is sincere when he says there are great issues that have been neglected by the other candidates and he wants to bring them forth for the good of the But do you know how hard it is on the nerves to make a quiet phone call when you got to worry that your wife might be listening in on the extension line in another room we should be give him the benefit of the take him at his he made a but he shouldnt have to suffer for it the rest of his Thats My cousin Louie the Romeo made the same kind of mistake He only suffered until the kids turned 21 and he could finally stop paying child support Guest Column 1 dont think we can compare your worthless cousin Louie the Romeo with Gary who has had a distinguished public career I dont know about that They had a lot in Hart got caught by the Miami and my cousin got caught by an angry husband named Just let he who is without sin cast the first but if we always went by that nobody would have to show up for jury 1 think we owe it to Hart to listen to his programs to improve this society and ease world tensions You must admit that he has always had fresh ideas Ive always had exactly the same kind of fresh but 1 never got a chance to go to Bimini on a boat to try em out Why cant you keep an open mind The man has the right to go to the voters and lei them decide Thats all hes asking a chance to be heard Right Like I always youre better off being heard than so just remember to pull down the window shades Kveryone deserves a second chance Ive heard you say that many especially to bill collectors youre probably right But if hes hes going to have to run a different kind of campaign this time Different in what politicians have to go around shaking a lot of right Thats a traditional part of the game They call it pressing the flesh THen hes got to be very careful about what kind of flesh he presses And when he shakes a he should remember to let go of it sometime before the next morning Thats sound advice And politicians still kiss dont they Some do Then he should always make sure that when he kisses a it isnt wearing tight jeans and spike shoes Im sure hell make that distinction And if he bounces one on his K better be wearing a diaper and not a bikini That would be prudent If he does all then Ill give him a lair shake and listen to what hes got lo say Thats all hes asking for And 1 hope that the public and those of us in the media will spend less time dwelling on his personal life and more time reading his position papers Im really interested in his position papers Sou are7 Thais very good youre never too old lo learn some positions Conference focuses on needs of children By JUDITH ZAFFIRINI District 21 State Senator During this time when many families gather for joyous impoverished abused children and youth seldom are the focus of It is the goal of the annual Southern Legislative Conference on Children and Youth that this

services and urging that these services be provided through a partnership of the private and public sectors In we passed SLC Resolution 3 which named family preservalion services as the ser vice of while recognizing the need for foster and institulional care in some cases In this we sought lo ensure thai family preservalion services are largeted at families with children facing imminent risk of

lo convene meetings of departments and agencies which serve children and to develop a family preservation services Such a plan should include methods of securing adequate financing for these services Throughout the panelists focused repeatedly on the lack of adequate planning for the needs of our children and on the lack of ade quate funds for necessary These con cerns were dealt with in our
