issue Dear Editor President Clinton speaking at a fundraiser for Emilys List singled out some of our churches and syna gogues and RighttoLife people as advocates of violence and hate spread ers who protest legal Legal abortions means little babies can be killed legally In this wide world is there any other innocent human being killed legally There are some 90 nations who do not kill their offspring In our 20 years not one abortion doctor had been killed but when two of them were killed all hell broke loose Two killings versus 5 millions brutal ly slaughtered legally killed babies So who is advocating violence Every living human being has a right to life Babies are human beings what else and if they were not alive they wouldnt have to be killed The Right toLife people simply want this killing stopped President and Mrs Clinton energetically support it The Clintons do need a big mirror Thank you very much Barbara Thierant Cibolo Rahe teaching tradition spans 20th Century Dear Editor I have been reading the recent letters in local papers concerning the naming of the new schools in the CISD I am writing this letter to offer still another suggestion for the naming of the inter mediate school in the Bulverde area I am very interested in the selection of a for this Bulverde school since my children will be going there The name I have in mind is to honor a group of people who have dedicatedtheir lives to education in Comal County I also come from a long line of set tlers Who came to the Bulverde area in the 1860s All the generations since then have been bom raised and for the most part lived and died in Comal County My childrens greatgreatgrcat grandparents greatgreat grandparents great grandparents and one grandparent are buried in the old St Paul Lutheran Cemetery on Obst Rd in Bulverde The land on which the current Bul verde schools are built was land donat ed by my great grandfather and his brother William and August Scholz But enough of my background I have spoken with many people who grew up in Comal County as I did and have lived here all their lives and attended the schools here and now their are attend ing these same schools as mine There is one name that keeps coming up whenever education is brought up and about who had the most direct and longlasting influence in educating their children This name spans sever al generations because this family has been teaching for four generations and their combined experience is 238 years and counting Anyone who has lived in the Bulverde area and Comal County at least 10 years will be familiar with this family I would like to suggest the new school be named Rahe Elementary or Rahe Intermediate to honor the Rahe family Carole LaShomb who was a Gifted and Talented teacher at Bulverde Ele mentary helped her class write a book called Schoolhouses in the Hills back in May 1991 This book was all about the history of the schools espe cially in the western area of Comal County The last chapter in the book is a special acknowledgment called The Rahes Through the Years which states The Rahes have really had an influence on education in the Bul verde area We give thanks to the four Rahes for helping to make our com munity and our school what it is today Since completing this book Mrs LaShomb has started working on a book just on the Rahe family documenting their gravitation toward teaching careers and their impact on the community She calls it a teaching I have gathered some of the statistics on the familys teaching careers almost all of which occurred in Comal County William Rahe father Albert Rahe son 37 years 1921 Werner Rahe son 42 years 1929 principal 18 years Ernst Rahe son 35 years 1937 principal 25 years Alton Rahe grandson 3 years ele mentary 19 years col lege Ernst Rahe Jr grandson 22 years Alva Rahe grandsons wife 20 years and Nma Rahe greatgranddaughter 10 years This covers 238 years of teaching experience in one family and Im sure its not done year i feel it is very appropriate to name a school in honor of these teachers who have done so much and dedicated their lives to Comal County children They exem plify what teaching is all about They loved teaching and they encouraged their own children to carry on the tra dition And the community responded to them out of respect and love It is especially appropriate to name this particular school for this family because almost every one of them has taught in the Bulverde area and Comal County Most of them taught at the 5th and 6th grade levels As I said before I have discussed this with many people and they all wholeheartedly agree it would be a fitting memorial to a deserving group of people Thank you for your time Sincerely Rahe Welborn daugh ter of Werner Rahe I have a Texas teaching
