A coronation dance kicks off the fiesta Saturday evening. Sunday will feature mariachis, a folkloric ballet, a historical display and a second dance. Food and refreshments, including tamales, nachos and sweets, will be available for purchase, and admission to all events is free and open to the public. City, county and school officials and employees have been sent personal invitations for the first time this year, said fiesta chairwoman Josie Castillo. “This is the first time that we’ve literally sent out invitations for this event, and the response has been good. So that’s why we feel this year will be even more successful than the previous ones,” she said. New Braunfels Mayor Pro Tem Ramon Chapa Jr. will be the master of ceremonies at the coronation dance, scheduled to start at 7:45 p.m.. Suzie Garcia, heritage society president, will welcome the crowd. Texas Railroad Commissioner Local artist Simon Medina, pictured with his son Rene, will feature some of his artwork at the Mexican-American Fiesta Historica Mexicana celebration on Sunday, Aug. 25 at the Civic Center from noon to 3 p.m. The public is invited.

She is the daughter of Socorro Vela and the late Domingo Vela. As a middle school student, she was active in basketball, volleyball, tennis and track. State Rep. Edmund Kuempel will crown the princess, Denise Figueroa, a sophomore at New Braunfels High School this year. A volleyball team member and a trumpet player in band, she also has been a dancer in the Ballet Folkloric Infantil for eight years. Figueroa, daughter of Arturo and Mary Figueroa, serves as an officer in the Holy Family Catholic Church youth organization. Local band Alegria will provide dance music from 8:30 pm. to 12:30 a.m. Sunday’s events start at noon with a heritage display featuring photographs and memoribilia highlighting the contributions and military service of local Mexican-Americans. Compania De Danza Folklorica, a folkloric ballet troupe, will perform from 12:45 to 1:30, followed by Mariachi Festival of San Antonio at 1:30 and Mariachi Ecos De America of New Braunfels at 2:30. ETCetera, another local band, will close out the fiesta with live music for another dance, scheduled from 3:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. The two bands essentially are donating their services and will accept only a token amount, Castillo said. The fiesta and the pageant are fundraisers for the heritage society’s annual scholarship awards. Last school year, five $400 scholarships went to high school seniors in the New Braunfels and Comal school districts.

New members are Dear Abby Woman can’t stop loving after marriage (EDITOR’S NOTE: Abby is on a two-week vacation. Following is a selection of some of her favorite past letters.) DEAR ABBY: I need help and don’t know where to turn anymore. My husband and I have been separated for more than two years. I still lo,e him, but there is no chance of our getting back together again. Abby, how do you stop loving somebody? I’ve been going to group therapy meetings, but it has not helped to stop the ache in my heart. Misery may love company, hut it doesn’t make me feel any better. * Maybe a reader who has gone through the same thing can give me «ome suggestions. ACHING HEART DEAR ACHING: You can’t •‘kill” love. It has to die by itself. Don't dwell on thoughts of him, and throw out all the reminders and souvenirs. Force yourself to think of something else. Keep busy, and don’t feel sorry for yourself. Tell yourself you deserve to be happy, and eventually you will be. Good luck. * DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a baby who is learning to feed himself. I am almost positive that Terry is left-handed because when I put the spoon in his right hand, he transfers it to his lei! and proceeds eating that way. My husband says I should train Terry to be right handed because everything is geared for right-handed people and the boy will lie handicapped if he’s left-handed Now my husband is forcing Terry to eat with his right hand What do your experts say? YOUNG MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: My experts say to let the child eat with whichever hand he wants to. To force Terry to use his right hand when he is naturally left-handed could create many more problems than it solves. Besides, what’s the difference which hand he eats with? His mouth is in the middle. DEAR ABBY: I and several friends have hit upon an idea for losing weight, as far out as it may seem. We pull our shades dow n, lock the door, and then clean house in the nude. We noticed overw eight women do not tend to look at themselves in mirrors as much as more slender women. Well, in cleaning house * which is itself exercise) we force ourselves to look at our bodies. Our only rule is, try to keep the stomach muscles pulled in while cleaning. Its hard at first. But actually seeing the muscles tightened helps one to keep them taut after the body is clothed. Most of us have mirrors in every room. As we go from room to room cleaning, wecan’t help but come face-to-face with ourselves. This may sound crazy, but I promise it works if done in earnest. “AUSTIN” DEAR “AUSTIN”: Now, in ad-dition, if you could arrange to watch yourselves eat, you might have it made. (P.S. And should you decide to cook in the nude, do wear an apron while frying bacon.) DEAR ABBY: After putting on a wedding for our daughter, I feel the public could use some do’s and don’tx on wedding etiquette 1. Always respond to an invitation when an R S.V I*, stamped, addressed card and envelope are provided. The hostess needs a “Yes, I ain coming," or, “Sorry, I cannot attend Many respond only to say they are planning to attend 2. If you do accept the invitation. please coml* to the reception — as your host and hostess must pay for your reservation. < We had to foot the bill for eight dinners at $25 per person for people w ho accepted but did not show up.) A cancellation up to five days before the big event is usually enough to avoid this problem. 3. Please do not include on your response card any more family members < or friends) than have been invited. Reservations are limited. and it is rude to add extra uninvited guests, lf it is crucial for an added guest to come, please ask the hostess for permission to do so. 4. After accepting a wedding reception invitation, it is in good taste to send a gift. Thank you, Abby, for helping me air my frustrations. MOTHER OFTHE BRIDE IN YORK. PA.
