New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 20, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Congress President an embarrassment Open letter to the President and Congress I am one of the little people in this country who works hard pays his bills on time draws nothing free from the government and pays about 25 per cent of every dollar I make in taxes I have never written a letter to my President or Congress before but I have never been so truly embarrassed and angry about how my President and my Congress are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats and not accept ing their responsibilities of running my country honestly and efficiently You and Congress were elected to make decisions compromise if nec essary but not to shut the country down I have noticed over the past years that my government is becoming more and more distant from me less and less moral and being less and less responsible to us who pay your salaries and provide all of those perks that we as John Q Public do not enjoy but are required to pay for It has not escaped our notice that our President and Congress have not and will not sacrifice anything during these shut as usual we are the ones left holding the while you con tinue to act like spoiled children call ing names back and forth at our expense Get your collective heads out and run my country I know I will receive some com puter generated form letter back from each of you thanking me for my con cern and saying a lot of flowery words about how you appreciate me voicing my concern It will be written on expensive stationery and mailed to me save the postage oops I forgot you dont have to spend 32 cents to sends your letters like I did to send these to you A disgusted and frustrated citizen Jim Beath New Braunfels Spring fed pool doesnt need Kiddie City Dear Editor I am writing in reference to the arti cle in last Sundays paper about the To directly support the work of the I Salvation Army Service Unit of New Braunfcls gifts may be mailed to Salvation Army 304 Cardinal Drive New Braunfels Texas 78130 LOCATE INSIDE mattress sleep store 210 825 5513 renovation of the Landa Park pools It was stated that the spring fed pool will be transformed into Kiddie complete with play features like water slides squirting animal play structures and water drops like tire Also a new wading pool will be built and the bath house will get a face lift This will be funded in half by a grant and the other half from user Tees saved over a period of years and all pool fees will be raised Does this mean that the whole project carries a price tag It seems to me that if a family is wanting this water park play area that they could go to one of the glitzy amusement parks with all of the unnat ural attractions that they could ever want We have something really spe cial in the natural beauty of our spring fed pool I am really sorry that this artificial playground is being built At what expense will we continue to exploit our city to draw the tourist dol lar Does this city even know that we have a first class swim team with ded icated coaches and young people who have to travel to San Marcos every day to work out in an indoor pool I do believe that his money could be much better spent Tanya Dunsmore New Braunfels Majestic doing just fine thank you very much Dear Editor Welcome home Majestic Majestic Mal danado was brought home the

age 5 Guadalupe River peaceful during holiday season Dear Editor Twas the week before Christmas on the Guadalupe River not many creatures are stirring Theres no shout ing the F word no drunks and very little new trash It would seem even the old trash that lines the banks is getting ready for Christmas As it begins to sink into the ground to bed itself forever in the environ ment the nature of the season covers the trash with colored leaves falling from the beautiful trees Even the old aluminum stinko cans give the illusion of a shiny ornament either stuck in riverside debris or lining the banks of the river For the time the homeowners are happily diverted to preparation for Christmas joys and celebrating the pleasure that at least this holiday is not distracted by the hordes of river rafters that make other holidays impos sible For the peaceful quiet for the beau ty of the river scene and for the har mony of our neighborhood we join our one river resident the blue heron to wish New Braunfels friends a Mer ry Christmas Fonda Wetsel New Braunfels CEDAR ALLERGY SUFFERERS WE NEED CEDAR ALLERGIC INDIVIDUALS FOR A RESEARCH STUDY INVOLVING TWO MARKETED ALLERGY MEDICATIONS SKIN
