New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 7, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday June HeraldZeitung 5 i t u n g Arts Entertainment THE ART OF THE MATTER Its much too convenient to blame Hollywood Despite Senator Doles undoubted sincerity when he blasted the film industry recently it must be noted that his words were certain ly political ly I find that phrase too irritating to hear and its concept too Schertz explodes with July 4th fun Rhythm On Parade inane to con sider It implies that theres a uniElizabeth versally Elliott accepted way to think speak conduct one Lets all march in line fel low sheep And forget Thoreaus different Well it seems to me the Golden Rule didnt need replacing as a guide to live gives much broader parameters of individuality while encouraging a sensitive caring for one another But Ive digressed The point is that Doles attack on Holly wood on Times Warner and gangsta rap recording studios blamed them for polluting our society and corrupting our chil Gosh I wish that were true If it were wed know who to out law and then become Utopians living in our perfect world Thanks for the excuse We knew it couldnt possibly be OUR fault After all dont we teach ethical behavior to our chil dren and set standards of char acterbuilding And we certainly dont give in to their excessive demands like designerlabel clothes expensive electronic toys and whatever other New Wave we And dont we work hard enough at least 2 or 3 jobs between parents to pay for those college careers No we couldnt possibly assume the responsibility for the mess our nation is in The politicians did giants did the communications media did the entertainment world did it But not us Lets get real I agree with Senator Dole that the films and recording industries have made LARGE contributions to violence promiscuity and hard ened attitudes of opportunism and greed But lets take off the blind ers The big boys at the top of those industries are there for ONE And theyre not stupid You dont produce a commodity if theres NO MAR KET for it Our society in gen eral seems to crave more and more sensationalism Does that ring any bells Wasnt there an empire many centuries ago that became so affluent so caught up in that its excitement driven decadence cheered while animals ripped human beings apart in the Roman arenas And like HumptyDumpty it had a great Dont look now Pollyanna isnt home today The lowprofile astute new managing editor of this paper gave me permission a short time ago to stir the air a so today this is the opinionated lady talk ing to you Yes 1 know that Web ster says that means Im stubborn But only about a few things And assuming responsibility for ones own world is one of them And 1 realize how frightening that can its the only solution to the ethical health of our country We crave sensationalism and danger when we feel The cure for that emptiness is a return to the courage of living with character and a belief in the Ulti mate Holiness in each human being Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist for the HeraldZeitung writing on the arts and humani sometimes on the art of being Schertz with the population of almost known

museums newest exhibit Caves and Caverns of Texas and the United The cave and all the supporting materials are the end result of months of work for Brian Brown of San Mar cos Brown is a member of Boy Scout Troop 1954 and the cave is his Eagle service project Brian approached me last fall with the idea of doing his Eagle service project with said Executive Direc tor Susan Williams We are always ready to assist that kind of project and I told Brian how other projects with scouts had been accomplished The scouts usually came to the museum and worked at whatever tasks were needed from painting and cleaning to dismantling and installing exhibits I told him we could always use good muscle and willing Brian wanted to do more than assist the museum with work on hand Id like to make an exhibit 1 was thinking about building a he said Our troop does a lot of caving 1 want it to look like a real cave but Im not sure how yet 1 intend to write to the caves around here for brochures and stuff and build it with the help of my 1 was delighted and probably a little skeptical but it certainly sound ed said Williams We Brian Brown explores the cave he built as his Eagle service project at the Childrens Museum talked a few more times he came over and measured a space we thought suit able for the project and then in Janu ary he came in with his paperwork Once 1 saw his project description on paper I thought Hes really going to do this And he really did The cave itself is about four by eight feet but the visitor only goes a few feet into the cave to stand at a clear window Its pretty realistic espe cially when one stands in the entry One corner seems to drop off into a deep black Once inside visitors see stalactites hanging from the ceiling and can touch walls that are textured in good imita tion of a real cave Its dark Visitors turn on the head lamps attached to their hard hats for a look way bcick into the depths of the cave Lots of snakes snails and all over the floor Bats hang from the formations an owl nests in the corner and a skunk noses the ground in search of bugs The visitor can listen to a cassette tape which describes features and ani mals Its definitely going to be the hit of the added Williams We are proud of it and really proud of Brian The exhibit will really give the kids a feel for caves and they and their parents can learn a A wall map locates every sizable cavern in the and information is provided on many of the sites Books games and pictures complete the exhibit On several occasions during the summer Brian will gather his troop at the museum where they will provide visitors with more opportunities to learn even more about caving and to see equipment used by spelunkers The Childrens Museum is open every weekday from 9 Saturday hours are 10 and Sundays are noon5 Admission is per person Don Maxwell presents the Childrens Museum board president Patty Pfost with a check for from the New Braunfels Rotary Club Club gives boost to program The New Braunfels Rotary Club gave a boost to The Childrens Museum in New Braunfels with a donation in support of Free First Tuesday for June Were glad to be able to do said Don Maxwell the clubs presi dentelect We had a good year and we like to support the We appreciate it so said board president Patty Pfost in thank ing Maxwell We really see that the Free Tuesday idea is meeting a need in the community and we want to continue it It helps to have the recognition from civic groups such as the New Braunfels Rotary Club that we too are serving the community and that when we offer a free admis sion program it still costs the muse um The Free First Tuesday began last June and lias continued on the first Tuesday afternoon of each month Sponsors for the monthly events help cover costs of daily operations and provide funds for special programming on the free day The sponsors support is really a gilt that helps us get people into the museum who can not afford our admission price We started with a small crowd on our first tree after noon bul it built steadily through the year and now we have about 200 people coming on the free after said Pfost In addition to providing admis sion to the museums regular exhibits the free Tuesdays feature a special event Junes Free Tues day featured the opening of the museums newest exhibit a cave
