The media has positioned itself as fund ing the good story at the expense of other Earl Graves executive 1994 D I T O R I A L Bring on the YMCA Services would compliment enhance other youthoriented programs in city Choices We have have hundreds even thousands to make each day Sometimes we wish we didnt have so many decisions to make about how to spend our extra time but one additional option would be wel come for this community and its youth The opening of a YMCA Young Mens Christian Association would offer the youth of New Braunfels the opportunity to spend their spare time in a safe educational and healthy environment With so many poor options available on the streets these days even in small towns like a YMCA would be a welcome partner here Many people agree Interested proponents of a YMCA have been making inquiries about such a project for years More recently the Leadership New Braunfels classes of 1993 and 1994 studied the feasibility of locating a youth in the city Discussions continue today and some of the same arguments against a Y in the community are still heard Some believe that a youth center or Y would cut into other youth pro grams throughout the community drawing youth participants and their adult volunteers away to the Y But a YMCA is not a building but a delivery of services geared to the local according to Bill Martin with San Antonios Y Where New Braunfels is already strong in programs for the youth a local YMCA would stay away from or work to enhance those pro grams And where we might be lacking the YMCA would move in and fill those needs Besides the sportsoriented programs and facilities they are known for YMCAs also offer services like afterschool care child Youth Volunteer Corps and TeenParent Education If enough support is shown and the local community is able to raise the funds necessary to support a YMCA here residents and those already involved with our youth should put their full backing to theY The goal is the same and a YMCA would only benefit those most needing attention our youth Todays editorial was written by Managing Editor Doug Write us The New Braunfels HeraldZeitung welcomes letters on any public issue

Respect for fathers Sunday June 18 is Fathers Day Its time to hon or all those fathers grandfathers and greatgrandfa thers who give of their time and their money to make life more pleasant for us Sometimes I think we do too much bashing of the male population and maybe its time tocommend them for the good works they do Granted there are some not so good ones in the world but they are the ones we hear about and read about What about all those great wonderful men who take care of both materially and physi cally their families and nurture and care for them What about those guys who take out the garbage mow the lawn oil the squeaking anything wash the car repair the plumbing babysit Marie Dawsort attend all the sports and school functions do occa sional cooking and cleanup take the family out to eat and on vacations and lift all those heavy items Yes there really are some like that more than many women will admit to Furthermore there are pretty great stepfathers in the world too They are not all bad as many people think Well Fathers Day is the perfect opportunity to salute them and let them know how much they are appreciated In fact Fathers Day came about as a reaction In 1909 Mrs John Bruce Dodd was attend ing a Mothers Day service in Spokane and she began to wonder why there was no day of the year to pay tribute to fathers Mrs Dodds thoughts were prompted by memories of her own father His wife had died young and he had been left to raise six children singlehandedly He made every possible sacrifice for his family without complaining Mrs Dodd soon realized that he was not the only such father She drafted a letter to the Spokane Ministerial Association setting out her pro posal for a Fathers Day They approved and mitted the proposal to the YMCA feeling that its members were best suited for putting it into action In 1910 Spokane Washington became the first city in the world to observe Fathers Day Mrs j Dodd wanted June 5 as celebration since it was her fathers birth date but others felt it was too close to Mothers Day and it was finally agreed that the 3rd Sunday in June would be the time In 1916 President Wqodrow Wilson inaugurated the celebration in Spokane However the fight to gain official nation al recognition had not yet been won and several attempts failed This led Sen Margaret Chase in Feb 1957 to accuse Congress of discriminating against fathers Either we honor both our mother and she said or It took another 15 years until in 1972 President Richard Nixon signed a Congressional Resolution putting Fathers Day on an equal footing with Mothers Day So now you know the rest of the story This Sun day June 18 honor your father and your mother your grandparents and your extended family After alU none of us would be much without them Marie Dawson
