organization calling itself HELPS Habitats lor Listed and Protected Species has proposed the creation of an artificial habitat for an endangered species near Comal Springs in Landa The proposal comes on the heels of the filing by the Texas Chapter of the Sierra Club of a federal lawsuit intended to pre serve the natural springflow and thus the natural habitat of the fountain darter and other end angered species that are found at the Comal Springs in New Braunfels and the San Marcos Springs in San The lawsuit seeks to accomplish this through man dated reduction of overpumping of the Edwards current ly San Antonios only source of The proposed recreation of the fountain darters habitat would be like putting a Polar Bear in a refrigerated cage and con tending it was then preserved so open season could be declared on all Polar Bears found in the It is time for San Antonio to get serious about finding a solution for its water That doesnt mean devoting its untold dollars and manpower to clearing the way to pump the aquifer It means finding other sources of water and being prepared to spend the money it takes to develop It doesnt mean coming up with sophomoric attempts to cir cumvent federally mandated protection of endangered It means finding that solution while complying with the law of the And it certainly doesnt encompass attempts by San Antonio groups to meddle in the affairs and with the property of neighboring communities to clear the way for sucking the aquifer Bad news for vendor remains best for city While we cannot help but admire the spirit of entrepreneurship exhibited by Dave we must commend the decision of the New Braunfels City Council in rejecting Clarks effort to amend a city ordinance that bans onstreet recently laid off as sales director of a local manufactur ing had purchased a custommade ice cream vehicle and proposed to drive the vehicle slowly through residential neighbor hoods but not to set up in any single Had the council elected to amend the the door would have been opened to similar mobile vendor requests and that would not have benefitted our In the first many of those vendors would not have been local and health and safety regulations would have been difficult if not impossible to and perhaps more small businesses arc the lifcblood of a community such as They plow money back into the community and the area in many Their owners and workers arc involved in the life of the They pay taxes and they spend money to maintain and upgrade their An influx of mobile vendors would hurt these small local firms and that would hurt us Were sorry Clark cannot implement his He is a New Braunfels resident and most of us would have enjoyed buying and eating his wares on a hot summer But the city council acted They were contained in brown manila envelopes and there were two boxes of The first of the two boxes was a cheap metal one like you can find at any office supply or discount The second was made by hand of wood and It will be here long after you and I are The boxes came into my possession many years My mother gave them to In enclosed within the enve are yellowed hundreds of that hold the outlines of my fathers My father was a Methodist minis He served churches throughout Northeast and North Central I had the boxes for several years before I took the time to open them and browse through what was in Finally I And Id never before felt so so The man who wrote what is in those boxes earned the year he That was As far as I he never owned a except for a any property of any real Today I make many times the money he I own a house worth more money than he earned in his whole But in the face of what is in those two of what is represented by the material in everything I everything I have ever done or prob David Sullens ably ever will do is so much For in those boxes is a tremendous a a I can imagine the man who wrote the words contained in those boxes often late at he penned Some of those words were to con gregations despite his best simply could not or would not see what he was trying to tell His words were compassionate and I truly believe he felt Even I am unable to feel that way toward some of those with whom he For many years I was a part of a news paper that covered much of the area in which my father preached and I found great pleasure in occasionally writing the obituaries of some of those who treated him so poorly and yet to whom and of whom he spoke so Some of the words my father wrote were directed toward the grieving families of those whose funerals he Some of them bore a powerful mes Perhaps one of the most notable of those was triggered by a fellow pastors announcement that he would take a sabbatical leave a year so to In my father wondered rhetorically what would happen if God were to take a Some of my fathers sermons were written for special One of those was his Mothers Day Noting that it was worn almost bey ond use and that many of its pages were tear he always used his own mothers Bible when he deliv ered that Holding that worn he told his congregation that it had seen his mother through the death by electrocution of one of his brothers and through the death of his father in a hunting He even those many years her smile and her as a had little enthu siasm for my fathers But I did enjoy the illustrations with which he sprinkled Some of those lin ger with me

Sunday editorial con cerning dogtired animal stories and be assured the novelty of these cases is lost upon none of us here at the I must take exception to the implication that the county has in any way sought out publicity on these In the almost daily contact we have had with radio and televi sion media has in every instance been initiated by the journalists If we as readers arc dogtired of hearing about animal perhaps the media should direct its attention to some of the more pressing law enfor cement issues in our Court records reflect that new fil ings in juvenile both felony and have quadrupled in the last five Many of these crimes are truancyor Hot check cases have doubled in the last two and while our prosecution efforts have moved apace we should be returning over in

mysticism by Joseph Wolpert that I paraphrase here At the turn of this century behavior ists led by Harvard scholar William James proposed the idea that we can change our lives by changing our This discovery has pro duced three generations of pop psy chologists preaching that by changing the inner attitudes of our minds we can change the outer aspects of our r Today health scientists emphasize the importance of positive thinking and the role that our thought plays in determining the quality of our There is great comfort in realizing that what we experience in our lives is the direct result of what we think and We can gain some control over our destiny by accentuating the Of course there is much more to spiritual growth than holding good and constructive thoughts in our No doubt positive thoughts enable us to live Yet there is positive thinking can cause some to believe that they arc These people tend to seek the esoteric occult of psychic practices that lead to self They believe in crystals and all sorts of fan tastic magic soon they are out oh a limb wi th Shirley Christian goes beyond mental science and shuns the narcissistic belief that the self is Mysticism holds that thoughts received in the mind come from He is the giver of Indeed God is the gift itself God is health and Spiritual understanding teaches us that God is all Through prayful meditation and scriptual study comes spiritual understanding that reveals God to Prayer is not simply an asking process but a listening and waiting process with prayful medita tion Gods love is revealed to us dur ing the course of our daily If we practice mental science we want to dcmontratc the benefits of our positive thinking more a new a new But with mys with a true belief in these material things become We develop a habit of expectation and We have no no apprehension because we know that God will and is taking care of All that happens to us is a learning experi ence and an opportunity to grow spir
