New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 11, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas Opinion Pao§4 HerakJ-ZaftunpThursday, February 11,1993 Quote of the Day “Nothing is mine, I have only nothing but it is enough, it is beautiful and it is all mine.”—Katherine Anne Porter, American author (1894-1980). Editorials_ History New pictorial volume tells story of New Braunfels Anew pictorial history of New Braunfels is available for sale now with delivery planned for November. According to Clyde Blackman of the Sophienburg Museum and Archives, the book’s publication has been underwritten by a consortium of IO local businesses, but its proceeds will benefit the museum. Authored by Myra Lee Goff and Rose Marie Gregory and edited by Roger Nuhn, the book will be produced as a limited edition and it will be the first such book ever published in the county. It will feature more than 275 photographs, many of them never previously published. Old and historic photographs from private collections still are boing solicited for inclusion in the book and should be submitted by contacting the Sophienburg Museum and Archives. All photographs, of course, will be returned after publication. Three thousand copies of the 192-page, hardback book are offered for immediate sale, according to Blackman, at $34.95. Also to be offered is a special leather-bound edition which will sell for $100 and of which only 200 will be printed. Proceeds from the sale of the books will be used, Blackman said, to establish a publishing fund at the Sophienburg Archives. The opportunity to purchase a copy of the book is not one to be missed. Our prediction is that the planned 3,000 copies will not be sufficient to meet the demand and that a goodly number of people will be disappointed. Our suggestion, therefore, is that anyone interested in New Braunfels and its history act now to secure a copy of the book. No one familiar with Clyde Blackman and with the Sophienburg will doubt for a moment the quality of the book, so there is no risk involved. Our order is on its way and, when it arrives in November, our copy of the book is going into the vault, for it is sure to be a valuable reference far into the future and certainly one that should be secured and protected.

New SrauuMi,TX 71131-1328 Newcomers dedicated to community Just one of the many dubs meeting at the Comal County Senior Citisens Foundation Center is the New Braunfels Newcomers Club. Prior to November 1982, this club membership was composed mostly of women and was called the Welcome Wagon Club of New Braunfels. In 1982, the club changed its name, and Amy (TGoirman became the first president of the Newcomers Chib as we know it today. As the club grew, men were encouraged to join. Today, men, women and couples participate in all activities and service work. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to friendship and die welfare of our community. The dub membership has grown to 325 enthusiastic people. The history of this dub goes way back with the Senior Center. The Welcome Wagon Club started meeting at the Senior Citizens' Center in November 1978. Prior to that, they met in various places. Beginning in 1982, the club met the first Tuesday of each month at the center. It then moved with the center to the current building, which houses the Comd County Senior Citizens Foundation. The club is a multi-faceted organization with its primary goals being to welcome new residents and Winter Texans to New Braunfels and to encourage them to join the club. It also seeks to provide service to the community. This club excels in both of these goals. In addition, the club has fun and lots of it Each month, there is a regular meeting with IIMg    ii, W Marie Dawson extremely interesting and informative programs — and each month there is at least one sotial. They plan trips, ftind-raisers, dances, pot hick suppers and on and on. The dub meets on the first Tuesday of each month here at the center: 9:30 a.m. for socials and IO a.m. for meetings. The members are addicted to friendship, fan and food. I know, because Tm one of them. One of the outstanding qualities of the club membership is their spirit of volunteerism. It is endless. They give and give of themselves, their money and their time. We can always count on them. Also, the club sponsors fund-raisers each year and donates the proceeds to various charities in the community, including the Teen Connection, Hospice, Community Service Center, Comal County Family Violence Center, Comal County Children's Shelter and the Comal County Senior Citizens Foundation. Even before construction of the center building and before official fund-raising began, the Newcomers started their own fund raising and made one of the first official contributions to the project As a group, they have contributed endless hours to the construction of the building. In fact, at the Nov. 6,1990 meeting of the club, Lea Thorn and Bob Dingeldein praised the membership for their thousands of hours of volunteer work on the new facility, commenting that the project would never have gotten off the ground without them. Many volunteers continue to contribute their time and services as needed. Newcomers volunteer for bingo, pool work, maintenance, Wurstfest chores, home-delivered meals and just about anything else anyone asks of them. They are a great bunch of people and a terrific addition to the community. Leading the chib in the coming year are our newly elected officers, which include Shirley Kellerman, president; Lyla Hochanadel, first vice-president for membership; and Paul Rainmaker, second vice-president and program chairman. Rounding out the roster are Minnie Bick-ham, secretary; and Howard Schulz, treasurer. All you new residents, Winter Texans and seniors who have lived in New Braunfels for less than five years are invited to come join in the fun. You'll be glad you did. Marie Dawson is a correspondent for the Comal County Senior Citizens Foundation. Fighting the ‘not in my back yard’ syndrome By WALTER Vt MEARS WASHINGTON — As the senator was telling the governors, ifs easy to demand an end to federal deficits, and state legislatures do it all the time — sometimes in two-part resolutions that also ask Congress to send them more mon-ey. That may be contradictory, but it is not uncommon. People want the deficit curbed with cuts in other people's programs, often while seeking increases in the ones that benefit them. “Ifs a phenomenon with which we all must live," said Senate Majority Leader Georgs Mitchell, D-Maine, “... and whim we've not dealt with effectively.” Mitchell said that attitude must be changed in order to face up to the politically difficult choices of getting the budget in order. Bob Dole of Kansas, the Senate Republican leader, agrees, as do the National Governors’ Association and the White House. In Congress, and across the political establishment, there's a chorus for tough decisions, shared sacrifice, strong medicine. But it is still rhetoric, still in Analysis generalities. The hard part is not making speeches about the deficit or making suggestions about... how you reduce it,” Dole said in a speech about the deficit The hard part is in the details, due from President Clinton in his first address to Congress in two weeks, and his budget in March. Thafs when the consensus on the need for stern action usually begins to fray into feuding over what it should be. Dole thinks attitudes may be different this time because the voters of 1992 demanded deficit control. The Kansas senator said that wherever he goes, he finds people willing to talk about it, even when their own interests are affected. “There's got to be some pain and you’ve got to make certain it’s evenly spread and that it’s real and it's going to have an impact,” Dole said at a governors conference in Washington this week. Mitchell said one good way to start the process would be to talk in plain language about what's involved. Entitlements, for example. Mitchell suggested that would be a good word to drop. “It induces people to think that there’s some vague category of things out there called entitlements,” he said. Instead, he said, people ought to understand that politicians who talk about saving money on entitlements mean cutting Social Security and Medicare. When the governors dealt with the deficit, in a policy statement they adopted Tuesday, it was in language toned down to drop a call for curbs on future Social Security increases and higher taxes on benefits. It has to be done, they said, in order to reach consensus. They had no such trouble agreeing on an even stiffer, but generalized,-call for spending cuts of $2.75 for every $1 taxes are increased. The difficulty is not in advocat-ing a formula; it is in saying where the cuts ara to be made. The new budget director, Leon Panetta, is said to seek a $2 to $1 savings-to-tax ratio, and hell have to fill in the blanks. While Clinton is committed to start with spending cuts, he also has plans for a $31 billion program to create jobs and offer tax incentives for business investment, adding those costs to the deficit in order to stimulate the economy. To hold the congressional support he’ll need when there are politically tough votes to be taken, Clinton has to balance deficit curbs with measures for long-term economic expansion. And there are no precedents to guide him, the president said, “since no one has ever tried to do both these things at once ” Even Democrats differ on the right mix. Liberals want the emphasis on jobs now, others demand deficit curbs first. Republicans favor the latter, but Dole said they “aren’t going to walk the plank so the Democrats can escape the tough votes ” And there are tough votes coming. “The unpleasant truth is that there are no alternatives to painful measures that cut government programs many regard as worthwhile, and raise taxes that many regard as already excessive,” said Robert Reischauer, director of the Congressional Budget Office.
