6259144 ext 21 One searches the magazines in vain for women past their first youth The middle aged face apparently sells neither perfume nor floor wax The role of the mature woman hi the media is almost entirely Janet Harris 1975 EDITORIAL Counting our blessings Events in other nations remind us of just how fortunate we are to be Americans On Saturday Americans around the country saluted our veterans of war It was the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform over the years that has kept this country a free nation and its people the envy of the world community Sure weve got our problems but at least our Constitution allows for us as citizens to express any disillusionment we may have with government or society and work to make positive changes That right is not however granted to citizens of every country In Nigeria the most populous African nation a military dicta torship is now receiving condemnation from leaders around the world after nine human rights activists were executed by a military tribunal A spokesman for head of state Gen Sani Abacha said the nine including writer Ken SaroWiwa were responsible for the deaths of four political rivals and were found guilty and justly hanged But Clinton Administration officials and others across the globe arent buying that They insist the killings were strictly political The killings themselves are eerily reminiscent of the days of communism and totalitarianism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and the rightwing dictatorships of Central and South America The jailing and killing of opposition leaders and antigovern ment activists were common occurrences just a few years ago in many countries and they still continue in pariah nations like Iraq North Korea and Iran But this past weeks actions in Nigeria have shaken freedomlov ing people around the globe and the and other nations have tak en the right steps to condemn the killings Whether those steps will have any effect on the political situation there remains to be seen But what this incident should remind us of is that with all of its blemishes America remains a jewel among nations That fact should not be forgotten especially when we honor those veterans who have helped preserve our way of life Todays editorial was written by Managing Editor Doug Write us The New Braunfels HeraldZeitung welcomes letters on any public issue The editor

daughter and I know the victim personally but I too tried suicide as a youth and I thank God I did not accomplish it I have dealt with suicidal youth in my own here and in San have come to realize that the majority of them are or were crying out for help whether through a rebellious act or a fatal one As a person that was very rebellious in my own youth I have come to realize that if I would have had a helping hand during those times I would have put my energy into a positive perspective What people need is a sense of direction and someone to lead them By doing this we can bring out the potential that we all possess but dont realize we have If we just give these troubled youth the benefit of the doubt instill in them that they will become all they Online contact To submit letters and
