New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 7, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 2 A Sunday May Morales praises Colonias bill Texas Attorney General Dan Morales on Friday April 28 con gratulated and thanked the Texas House of Representatives for passing legislation that expands and tough ens laws prohibiting the develop ment of thirdworld style communi ties in Texas The legislation now must be approved by the Texas Senate Substandard developments often called colonias have proliferated primarily along the TexasMexico border They typically have no san itary sewage or drinking water sys tems no garbage pickup or safe dis posal areas and no paved roads Residents are exposed to various infectious diseases such as cholera hepatitis and tuberculosis as a result of the open sewage pits contami nated drinking water and unsafe dis posal of garbage The contagious diseases are easi ly spread beyond the immediate colonia community With the passage of this legisla tion we will have die tools necessary to stop the proliferation of colonias and limit the residents and all Tex ans exposure to these deadly dis eases that often originate in such Morales said It should be inconceivable that in this day and age and in this great State our citizens would have to live in thirdworld style conditions and that they and all Texans could be so readily exposed to such primitive diseases Clay Loop

war was wrong terribly Congressman Tejeda paid trib ute to Americas veterans as he addressed a crowd of 200 persons at an AllVeterans Memorial Ceremony sponsored annually by the Vietnam Veterans of America on the last day of San Antonios Fiesta celebration This year the event fell on Sunday April 30 exactly 20 years after com munist troops captured Saigon As we look back 20 years to the fall of Saigon we remember the harsh sounds of war the valor of fellow troops and the pained stare of fallen said Tejeda Nothing said now by Robert McNamara reduces our debt to the courage of these young men and women There is a time for speak ing out and McNamaras was 30 years ago He should have had the courage to tell President Johnson that sending fur ther troops would be a mistake This failure is his own he should have stepped forward then That McNamara did not have the courage or conviction to speak out against sending more and more troops to a battle that he secretly thought could not be won in
