HZeitung@AOL.coni Conversation is food for the Trinidadian proverb EDITORIAL Programs are saving money Costs to detain juveniles in Texas facilities far greater than preventative measures Programs designed to help atrisk young people avoid gangs drugs and other problems should be supported by all Texans espe cially if a recent Texas Researchers study holds true The profile conducted measured the effectiveness of programs that specifically target the most atrisk juveniles nationwide Some of those programs are aimed at tutoring students who might be atrisk of dropping out of school while others offered young people alternative activities like basketball leagues and other programs to keep them off of the streets and hopefully out of trouble If these sound like just more entitlement programs know that there is a catch According to the Texas Researchers survey the average annual cost per atrisk youth for recreational programs nationwide is The average annual cost however to detain a juvenile in a Texas institutional facility is Its not even close What should be remembered about the programs mentioned above is that they are preventative measures undertaken to try and keep atrisk kids out of the criminal justice system These arent punitive programs or alternatives for punishment for delinquents No one is suggesting that criminals no matter what age they are should not be punished as prescribed by Texas law However as our lawmakers and legislators search for ways to reduce unnecessary spending we should encourage them to main tain funding for those programs that truly benefit the youth of this state while also saving the taxpayers money in incarceration costs Organizations like the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and New Braunfels own Teen Connection and the Sum mer Jobs Program are working hard to salvage many in this gen eration We should insist their efforts are not in vain and support their work Todays editorial was written by Managing Editor

our favorite places to Braunfels I was sure this was my final destination after a life of moving all over the world I had been back in the States only 3 years after living abroad for almost 20 years I was certain as I left Japan that I would never work as hard and was sure that I would not find as hardworking and dedicated people as the Japanese I moved to Hous ton married David went to work and was disap pointed in what I perceived re the American work eth ic the lack of dedication and the lack of working together to make things better for the I had the opportunity to move to New faith in the American work ethic is certainly regained I have an inordinate amount of respect for elected offi cials and for city government and I believe in the ded ication of the New Braunfels people I have been lucky enough to work with a city staff who are not only efficient and motivated but whose dedication surpasses that of the Japanese whom I had grown to respect so much I was doubly blessed with my job Working in a program such as Main helps rebuild downtown areas ulti mately creating a greater eco nomic base for cities and the been a tremen dously positive experience for me This program represents the best of what I feel America stands together as a community to make things happen where every facet of a community pools its resources Karen Crandall time and efforts to create good the My time in New Braunfels has been a learning expe rience for me and I so appreciate the opportunities I have had and the people I have met I want to thank you for your help support for who you are and for realizing the need and benefit of Main Street USA It seems that there is more for me to learn and experi ence before I can have that final destination place I hope that David and I have the opportunity to move back to New Braunfels it is our A piece of our hearts will remain here until we can hopefully collect them Be proud of what you have in this wonderful city and look forward to what is in store for you I will be promoting New Braunfels from afar and looking forward to visiting one of my favorite places once again Karen Crandall is Main Street Director for New AMfflCSH TOGE5 Clinton defends First Lady against attacks By RON FOURNIER Associated Press Writer Analysis WASHINGTON AP Caught in a swirl of accusations centered on his wife President Clinton is denouncing suggestions of wrongdoing in the White water and White House travel office affairs An he snapped at a reporter is not the same thing as a Clearly exasperated by the politically draining topics Clinton complained to reporters in a rare full scale news conference Thursday An allegation comes up and we answer it And then people say Well heres another allegation answer And then Heres another allegation answer That is the way we are living here in Washington Clinton said before flying to Nashville for appearances today Later he flies to Europe to visit troops in Bosnia and Hungary But even as he tried to mute the criticism new developments Thursday ensured that life wont get any easier for the president and his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton and interviews obtained hours before the news conference showed that Clinton knew about the firing of seven White House travel office employ ees in 1993 more than a day before they occurred The president has said he knew very little about the matter before the firings The documents also revealed that the president met twice the week before the firings with Hollywood producer Harry Thomason a confidant and private adviser to Clinton Thompsons attorney Robert Bennett said Thursday He did not discuss the fir ings or anything related to the travel Last week the White House released a memo from former chief of administration David Watkins that said Mrs Clinton had pushed for the dismissals White Hoase officials have said it was Watkins who made the decision Thomason has emerged as a central figure as con gressional Republicans seek details on whether Thomason or Mrs Clinton improperly pressed for the dismissals which both have denied attorney who worked with Mrs Clinton cast doubt on the first ladys account of having little to do with legal work for an Arkansas savings and loan at the center of the Whitewater real estate affair In his Senate testimony Richard Massey also said he was ordered by a key Clinton aide to surrender his Whitewater files during the 1992 presidential cam paign Massey said he was unaware that the files were given to the presidential campaign a practice he said he would have opposed

investigators had sought for months To Republicans the papers suggested that Mrs Clinton ordered the May purge of the trav el office staff and that she did substantial legal work for Madison Guaranty

sensitive information Today In History By The Associated Press from investigators Were in the cooperation busi he said i But he stopped short of committing the first lady to testifying in person before congressional committees investigating the affairs She will do whatever is necessary to answer all the appropriate Clinton said He dismissed speculation that his wife has suddenly become a political liability She will continue to be an enormous positive force in this he pre dicted The news conference was part of a fledgling cam paign at the White House to salvage Mrs Clintons reputation She is embarking on a highprofile book tour next week planning to answer questions on the travel office and Whitewater In his testimony Thursday Massey said Vincent Foster ordered him to turn over the campaign papers Foster later a deputy counsel at the White House committed suicide in July 1993 a tragedy that fed speculation about the tangle of Whitewaterrelated developments Massey also testified that I dont believe it hap pened that way when he was confronted with Mrs Clintons account of how her law firm was hired by Madison Mrs Clinton has said her introduction to work for the came from Massey Separately in an interview airing tonight on ABC TVs 2020 program Mrs Clinton again denied ordering the firings at the travel office which makes arrangements for journalists accompanying the
