New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 10, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas JLA p HefaldZertung 0 Sunday September 1 PL 1995 CISD calendar is great Dear Editor In response to the letter from the gen tleman complaining about the CISD school calendar 1 think the calendar is great The two breaks allow those peo ple who like to snow ski the opportuni ty to do so in February when its not so crowded Also if you are one of the many families in this area that has a business that depends on the tourist trade it gives you an opportunity to go on a family vacation during the offsea son My family and 1 took advantage of the late spring break last year and went to the coast in April and had a great peaceful vacadoa Since ft was the first of April most people had already been to the coast so there were very few people there and the weather was much nicer than it usually is tn Ntsch Se 1 say hurrah for the tKwcakodirand I hope we continue en tises same schedule Are her signals crossed DearEdftor Did die HeraldZemmg misquote Jan Kennady HZ Aug 29 or did she really say If the money is going to be there and somebody else is going to use it if we dont even if we repair the bridge and close it its worth Perhaps if somebody else is going to use it its because they NEED it Sincerely Linda Tyler Oak Run traffic hazards are very real Dear Editor Re WZSept 5 issue and Mr Charles Allens comments on the Oak Run traf fic snarls Never has the writer read a more detailed indepth knowledgeable research of a matter of this import than Mr Allen outlined in his remarks on the subject He is to be commended for this enlightening article that is sure to strike home with the views of many people exposed to the conditions as described in this report If we move only a short distance from the Oak Run School problem Mr Allen alludes to we find an identical problem when the Oak Run residential people attempt a left turn from Oak Run Parkway onto Hwy 46 Members of the Oak Run Property Owners Association ORPOA for the past several years have voiced their concerns dealing with the same haz ards and delays making a left turn onto Hwy 46 without benefit of a traffic light These Oak Run property owners when seeking help from the school dis trict city and state agencies have met the same negative response to traffic lights that Mr Allen pointed out However all may not be lost Sever al years past 5 or 6 at an annual ORPOA meeting while the traffic light problem was being discussed some one expressed the opinion that if we were to have an accident by a driver attempting a left turn from the Oak Run Parkway onto Hwy 46 that resulted in a fatality perhaps this would expedite the installation of a safety device at this intersection Those in attendance at the meeting generally agreed that this might be of some value It was further agreed that a volunteer from the ranks of the ORPOA would be sought for this pur pose The matter has rested here since to date no volunteer has come forward to fill the requirement of the accident fatal ity Mr Allens description of the identi cal problem at the Oak Run School exit opens a whole new chain of thought when we consider the large population that can be included by the addition of the school not then in existence when the proposed ORPOA solution was first suggested If we were to draw from the enhanced population when adding the Oak Run School numbers maybe we just might find yet a volunteer for this job It would be a further unselfish act if the volunteer were to come from the Oak Run School faculty This would indeed be a civicminded community oriented individual that would have the undying gratitude of all the people mak ing a lefthand turn onto Hwy 46 The above is not to imply that vol unteers other than Oak Run School fac ulty members would not be considered This should be open to all concerned persons without regard to race religion or gender Stevenson New Braunfels Dr Cecilia Soto Announces the opening of

passed to help families not break them down Family values has become a polit ically correct catchall phrase used by politicians on all sides of this very important issue We can all identify the symptoms the problems the state of chaos that has developed in Americas social fabric but what we need now are solutions And that demands an entirely new approach Many of the failing programs of today were created to address the social problems we faced 25 years ago But the problems are still with us and are now two and three times worse than when the programs began History proves that many of these programs have failed Congress must pass laws to support the family not break it down The tax code does not do enough to help fam ilies who stay together It is unfathomable that a married couple pays more in taxes than sin gles Eliminating the marriage penalty is a high priority Men and women who make the commitment to marriage should be rewarded not penalized and couples who choose to have children inside of marriage must be held up as the ideal A tax credit for families with chil dren is one of the best ways that gov ernment can promote strong families Men and women must be discour aged from having children outside mar riage Welfare as we know it must end because it provides incentives to con tinue having chil dren outside mar riages and discour ages lowincome men and women from entering into marriage commitf ments Studies have shown that once a woman has a child out of wedlock her chances of marrying decrease sig nificantly which in turn increases dra matically that singleparent familys chances of staying below the poverty line and the childrens likelihood of running into trouble with the law At the same time Congress is work Lamar Smith ing to make laws more familyfriend communities must also band together to lift America above its social problems We need to help our neigh bors discourage unacceptable behavior in our communities and raise the levels of expectation for our children If we do not demand the best from ourselves and others this devastating social cli mate will continue Men and women today must take a renewed interest in their children Time after time society focuses on the unwed teenage welfare mother Lets not forget that the father has an equal ly important commitment to the child and the mother Most of the fathers of young welfare mothers are much older adult men who must be held accountable One state welfare program that shows promise requires mothers to identify their chil drens fathers and attempt to collect child
