New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 23, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung □ Wednesday, August 23 ,1995 J 5 LETTERS Mother knows best Dear Sir, I wish to correct Charles Allen’s article printed in last Sunday’s edition. He said Ralph Bellamy was Alexander Graham Bell. Not so. Charles is too young to have seen the movie or he would have known it was Don Amcchc. Ralph Bellamy was FDR. When he writes about historical facts, Charles should check with his mother. Sincerely, Bobbie (Mrs. J.R.) Allen blew Braunfels Bar patrons fleeing county Dear Editor, In response to Bcldon Peters’ letter, “Writer questions bar owner’s figures,” let mc clear up several areas for him. I own and operate a bar in the county (not the one mentioned) and we have a capacity of around 800 people. Last year on any Thursday, Friday or Saturday night, we were averaging about 550 patrons. Approximately 200 came at or right after midnight; the other 350 came early and stayed late. Our beer was $ 1.50 each and we averaged 4 beers per patron. That boils down to over $3,000 in sales, three nights a week— $36,000 a month during the summer months. Now, since the “early patrons” know we will close at midnight, they go to San Antonio and, of course, we lose the “late patrons” automatically. I now average 50-90 patrons on Saturday nights, about 80-100 on Friday night, and I’ve closed on Thursday nights. My business has surely seen a $25,000 per month drop and I don’t doubt that other bars have seen this also. You don’t have a clue as to how bar patrons react to change and if you have never been to our establishments (which is obvious from your remark, “Serving 50 people would be a big load”), how can you assume the bar owner isnot correct in HER NUMBERS? I wish people who don’t know what they’re talking about would just QUIT TALKING. Sheree Guinn, owner "O’’Aces Patio WORD news release mums tsunami. Dear Editor,    »‘Vs*« August 16, 1995 was a very sad day. I was awakened with calls from guests wanting to cancel due to the recent news releases by WORD General Manager Jim Inman. The day ended with the Comal County WORD 6:30 p.m. meeting at the Canyon Lake Action Center, where no apologies were made—only accusations by many board members that the media arc always misquoting someone. When Guy Anderson was asked to resign by a fellow media person, his comment was there was no way he would even consider resigning over a “small ripple” like this. I then lost my cool and told the board and Guy Anderson that these news releases by their general manager may be a small ripple to them, but to me and my small business, and the community as a whole, it may cause a very large ripple! The meeting was then adjourned to the public. Hopefully, the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Aug. 15, 1995 immediate news release will spell out the true facts about the river flow and what equipment is being released at this time for river fun. Bridget McDougaU Canyon Lake Health plan an attempt to socialize segment of economy Dear Editor, In his letter of Aug. 13, 1995, Jerry Daugherty accuses Frances Shannon (note from the H-Z: It’s actually Shannon...her typed name was illegible) of “hypothesizing hypothetically.” What other ways are there to hypothesize? Her questions do not arise from her “personal rationalization,” but from the provisions contained in the “dam good plan” written in secret by Hillary and her cohorts. It was an illconceived, poorly designed, weak attempt by the Clintons to socialize one-sixth of the American economy. In fact, the Clintons could not even generate enough support in a Democrat-controlled Congress to bring it to a vote. Daugherty asks when we arc going to wake up. We have, and we are putting liberals on notice that we arc “tapped out.” There arc no more golden eggs in the goose. As a licensed health agent for 18 years, I am fed up with so-called insurance experts who spout nonsense on subjects about which they know nothing. For your information, Mr. Daugherty, a family earning $800 per month would qualify for numerous tax-supported programs, including medical care. For your further enlightenment, many health policies contain noncanccllation provisions under which coverage cannot be canceled due to claims, nor can premiums be raised except by class. In other words, the insurance company cannot “drop you like a wet noodle.” And finally, regarding the Clinton “tough crime bill,” the way he is fighting crime is to make a dollar worth so little that no one will bother to steal it. Clinton promised the country change. He is well on his way to seeing that all we have left is change.

BUI Redden New Braunfels Wyatt Earp blasts holes in new legislation Dear Editor, I can’t help but wonder what Wyatt Earp would have thought of the last sentence in your concealed handgun editorial, “Squeaky clean,” which read, “The Legislature may just have done this one right.” “What exactly did they do?” asks Mr. Earp. “Well, Mr. Earp, let’s see. lf I complete the application, the background cheeks and the safety training, I am then allowed to carry a concealed handgun.” “Anywhere?” “Well, not quite, Mr. Earp. NOT in a school, NOT in a place where alcoholic beverages arc served, NOT in an airport terminal, NOT in a courthouse, NOT in federal buildings, and—for most of us— NOT in our places of employment. Who knows where else I won’t be able to carry a concealed handgun.” “Now that seems peculiar to me. You know what it means?” “Yes, Mr. Earp, I do. That means every time I park my car someplace, preparing to go into one of the ‘gunfire’ establishments, I have to leave my handgun in the car. “What’s that? Oh, yes sir, Mr. Earp. I agree. Looks to mc like all the Texas Legislature did is fix it so that when a thief steals my car, he gets a free handgun in the deal. “You’re right, Mr. Earp. Only a bunch of durn fools would come up with a plan to give free guns to those who steal from others. “Excuse me? No, Mr. Earp, we don’t call them durn fools anymore. We call them politicians.” Robert A. Strange New Braunfels o * h I STATE OPTICAL* JL w v^/ You C an Really See I he Difference. Dr. Qilberto Aguirre 3 2 7 - B West Commerce 227-4229 Dr. John K.
