New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 23, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung O Wednesday August OS LETTER Mother knows best Dear Sir I wish to correct Charles Allens article printed in last Sundays edi tion 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 Allen New Braunfels Bar patrons fleeing county Dear Editor In response to Bcldon Peters letter Writer questions bar owners fig let me 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 Approx imately 200 came at or right after midnight the other 350 came early and stayed late Our beer was each and we averaged 4 beers per patron That boils down to over in sales three nights a 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 5090 patrons on Sat urday nights about 80100 on Friday night and Ive closed on Thursday nights My business has surely seen a per month drop and I dont doubt that other bars have seen this also You dont 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 how can you assume the bar owner is not correct in HER NUM BERS I wish people who dont know what theyre talking about would just QUIT TALKING Sheree Guinn owner Patio WORD news release causes tsunamiv 1 Dear Editor i August was a very sad cjay I was awakened with calls from guests wanting to cancel due to the recent news releases by WORD Gen eral Manager Jim Inman The day ended with the Comal County WORD meeting at the Canyon Lake Action Center where no apologies were accu jations 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 manag er 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 McDougall Canyon Lake Health plan an attempt to socialize segment of economy Dear Editor In his letter of Aug Jerry Daughcrty accuses Frances Shannon note from the HZ Its actually typed name was illegi ble of hypothesizing hypothctical What other ways are there to hypothesize Her questions do not arise from her personal but from the provisions contained in the darn good plan written in secret by Hillary and her cohorts It was an ill conccivod poorly designed weak attempt by the Clintons to socialize onesixth of the American economy In fact the Clintons could not even generate enough support in a Democ ratcontrolled Congress to bring it to a vote Daughcrty asks when we arc going to wake up We have and we arc putting liberals on notice that we arc tapped There arc no more golden eggs in the goose As a licensed health agent for 18 years I am fed up with socalled insur ance experts who spout nonsense on subjects about which they know noth ing For your information Mr Daugh crty a family earning per month would qualify for numerous taxsup ported 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 pre miums be raised except by class In other words the insurance company cannot drop you like a wet And finally regarding the Clinton tough crime the way he is fight ing 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 Ill close with two questions What is the source of the Constitu tional authority which permits the pres ident or congress to subject the Amer ican people to a national health care plan In view of the disgust disdain and low regard in which you hold the insur ance industry why would you pay pre miums and subject yourself to such abuse BUI Redden New Braunfels Wyatt Earp blasts holes in new
