New Braunfels HeraldZeitung Drawer 311328 New Braunfels Tx 781311328 Opinion HerafrZoltung Wednesday Sept Missing light bulb no serious threat Those who keep in touch with what is going on in New Braunfels more specifically those who read the HeroldZeitung know that the subject of restaurant reports have been the talk of late Youve read that they are unfair Youve read that the HeraldZeitung should not publish them Youve read that the restaurants shouldnt com plain Youve read that they should be published Youve seen the results of a readeropinion sur vey published by the HeraldZeitung Youve read a lot of stories from just about every side including todays feature on Page One which tells of one restaurant owner who disagrees with the way the inspections are conducted She has the right to an opinion as does Mr Lara as do you I would like to make it clear that it has never been the intent of the HeraldZeitung to do dam age to the local restaurant industry which by the way is one of our citys most lucrative We merely strive to be informative We opted to begin the reports shortly after my arrival in May The simple reason was that I had published them elsewhere in my experience in newspapers and found it to be valuable to readers Based on that experience I did notice right away that the reports we receive in New Braunfels were much more detailed than some I had seen before Credit or blame Mr Lara for that Knowing that different people do things differently I found noth ing wrong with Mr Laras details Apparently there are those who do At least two Mark Lyon of the replies against the reports in last Sundays survey results stated that the public is too dumb to understand what the reports mean That by the way did not come from anyone in the restaurant business That may be as untrue as saying everyone can understand them What we try to realize in the media is where we can and cannot be flexible in the descriptive process Leaving out or manipulat ing descriptions merely for the sake of knowing that any reader can understand can also distort the facts or change them altogether In ail honesty missing a light bulb in a back storage room will not hinder or alter the way food is prepared for the public Yet when the infraction shows up on a report the mere length of it created by listing every small infraction can make the report look negative or less than it actually is It can be confusing to some Based on the previous circumstances the Her aldZeitung has decided to discontinue listing each and every infraction and instead list moresignifi cant infractions where the deduction is more than two pouits With this format the public still gets the infor mation it wants the restaurants are not judged by the length of a report and we are also able to use the extra space to get more local news in Though some details in any report can be interesting the bottom line is the score itself Newspapers do have an interest in publishing restaurant reports The public has a right to know just as they do with police activity nursing home facilities and just about every serviceoriented industry reports made on by a competent qualified One caller pointed out that if it were not for the publishing of a report by Ralph Nader we might still be eating some hot dogs with more than twopercent rat hair content That is a disgusting thought But what is more disgusting now or then One of the things I enjoy most about living in New Braunfels is that I dont have to go far to get something good to eat There are more restaurants here that in many communities four times its size And theyre good Based on my personal experience Tve enjoyed my lunches and dinners out and the results of the restaurant reports I have no regret on where Ive eaten and what I ate And my appetite takes me all over town We probably have some of the cleanest most wellkept restaurants in the state and I will continue to be a customer to them However should one of them or some of them fail to continue the current standard readers will know Mark Lyon is Managing Editor for the New Braunfels UUCKYFORTHE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE THIS ONES LOCAL White House using gimmicks in selling health care plan By NANCY BEN AC Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON AP Fax machines tollfoe phone numbers house parties TV town halls sur rogate speakers The Clinton White House plans to use every gimmick of modem communications to sell its health care package to the American people Its pure and simple marketing The goal is to take a proposal of mindnumbing complexity and reduce it to six warm fuzzy princi ples that are hard to argue against security choice savings quality simplicity responsibility Health care thats always will be a key slo gan The audience is a public that is both hopeful and skeptical anxious for more secure and affordable health coverage yet worried it may end up paying more for less President Clinton also got a firm endorsement Monday from Dr C Everett Koop the surgeon gen eral under Republican presidents Reagan and Bush Koop said Clinton had already accomplished more to solve the nations health woes than all of his living predecessors put Clinton called it an astonishing thing that him Analysis dreds of lawmakers signed up for Health Care Uni versity briefings Monday and today with first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton who led his healthcare task force and the rest of his health advisers But the opposition already is speaking to peoples concerns about the ultimate product with the insur ance industry running ads that warn consumers that medical choices could be limited under health reform Clinton adviser Paul Begala insists that while Americans by nature are wary of anything marked New and they will be receptive to the healthcare package once they get acquainted with it Theyve already been talking about this issue around their kitchen tables for he said Republican pollster Bill Mclnturff however thinks that while the White House is saying all the right things about health care the plan itself will be its undoing Theyre selling exactly the right he said The trouble is the issues people havent produced a document that makes the sale Today in history The complexity of the plan he said gives the pres ident an enormous advantage because people will tend to focus on the appealing slogans rather than details of the plan Clinton himself will be educator in chief on what may be the defining mark of his presidency Last weeks Rose Garden event where the president and his wife heard healthcare horror stories from ordinary Americans is just the type of event the White House will use to mobilize support for the plan Its the most complex public issue our nation has tried to come to grips Clinton said Thats why I wanted to begin with the human face of it That message from the top will be supported every which way possible A healthcare war room at the White House complex already is cranking out 400 taxes a night to members of Congress interest groups and others to cast the plan in its best light On Thursday the day after he presents the plan to Congress Clinton will host a primetime TV town hall broadcast from
