   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 17, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas                                Good Samaritan Award The Board of Directors of the Community Service Center hon ored Laura and Eugene Koenig Wednesday morning with the centers annual Good Samaritan Award for their diligent service and volunteer work for the cen ter Board President Ben Wehman is pictured presenting the plague to Laura Koenig HeraldZeltung photo by Doug Loveday What was motive behind naming of CISD schools Editor I have read letters recently regarding the choice of names for the new schools in CISD There were excellent proposals to name the schools for Annette Hanley and other locals past and present whose lives were dedicated to the education of children in this area It has long been the custom in Texas to name schools for national state and local heroes and people deeply involved in the educational process Why do the CISD trustees behave in such an obstinate and insensitive manner as to completely dis regard this custom as well as the feelings of the local citizenry and make haste to name the schools generically Do they feel it is not politically correct during the Clinton administration to honor people of sound and moral principles If so why do they wish to be involved in the school system and if not what is their reasoning It is beyond comprehension Frances Shannon Spring Branch Pat Buchanan first candidate to address immigration fiasco Editor I question your judgment in publishing Jim Berrys political letter just two days prior to our primary election I have been a staunch supporter of Pat Buchanan and his sister Bay I have contributed financially to both of their campaigns 92 and 96 because Buchanan addressed our major national problem today immigration In my 79 years on planet earth I have experienced feast andfamine I have traveled to foreign lands My livingdFdead family members fought and served in the War of 1812 our Civil War World War I and II Korean War Cold War and Vietnam War I am a retired Air Force Officer and retired math teacher My education during the roaring 20s and Great Depression of the 1930s taught me why our Repub lican Party had virtually stopped immigration in 1924 My travels in the military took me to Asia Philippines Korea Japan Europe and North Africa I also served in New York Ohio Colorado New Mexico California and Texas I was born in the state of Michigan near Detroit and Canada I have concluded that we dont need foreign masses coming to our borders and shores I reasoned that since my ancestors killed Indians to secure 80acre homesteads in the War of 1812 we have no right to give such lands to foreigners instead of our children Pat Buchanan is the first presidential contender to address this immigration fiasco fostered by a stupid group of Democrats in 1965 Our only GOP senator John Tower voted against this 1965 Act I dont know how Senator Dole voted but he was there for every immigration increase through 1990 President Bush put his approval for an increase to annually Fortunately we have Congressman Lamar Smith and Senator Allan Simpson offering legislation to stop this foolishness Lamar Smith follows John Tower in being a true conservative in our state I should remind Jim Berry that Bay Buchanan was President Reagans campaign treasurer when he was called an extremist by our media and the democrats Pat Buchanan worked in President Reagans White House The extremist label today against Mr Buchanan is coming from the liberal media and fel low Republicans Shame shame Elwyn S Baldwin New

an allergy research study involving an investigational medication Skin tests and evaluation by a Board Certified Allergist provided at no cost Qualified patients will be PAID up to CENTRAL TEXAS HEALTH RESEARCH Metro 6090900 i Senior Center to stage annual fashion show Editor I worked in the old Comal plant for its last 11 years of existence I was also born and raised here in New Braunfels I think that if we are going to save that old building we should use it wisely Our Civic Center is too small When it was built it was a great asset to our city It is OK for small meetings wedding receptions but we need a convention center type facility The old Comal plant is large enough for such a facility and then some Having worked in it for 11 years I know that it will outlast any new building It is built like a fortress 1 would suggest a convention center on one floor and possibly the library on another Also the rusty old pipes and bins on top of the building should be removed and could be replaced with nonfunctional or fake towers turrets and spires to give it the look of a castle This would be in keeping with our German tradi tion and a big tourist attraction Also eventually through the years an elevated crosswalk could be built between it and the Wurst fest grounds As for funding such a project it will take the cooperation of all the citizens of New Braun fels and possibly the County of Comal LCRA has already said they will cooperate and they have the expertise and knowledge to help us acquire grants and financial advice Having worked for LCRA for 31 years I know you can count on their support As for who should take control of such a project I think without a doubt it should be the city of New Braunfels It will take a lot of effort and money to do this pro ject but I believe it can be done through long term financing This is one financial burden future gen erations wont mind inheriting because this proper ty is a heritage that will be used and enjoyed for many many years to come Otis W Mueller New Braunfels Spring is almost on us a time when everything is rejuvenated maybe even seniors when the bones dont creak and squeak as and life begins all over again Spring is a festive sea son and I think it is fitting that St Patricks Day precedes the opening of Spring by just a few days St Patricks is a fun day with lots of festivities and wearing of the green I feel that we here at the Comal Coun ty Senior Center have inherited the luck of the We have had the luck with us since the very beginnings of the Center back in 1991 and that luck continues today At the Comal County Senior Center we celebrate the first day of Spring with our annual spring style show and luncheon March 21 at 10 per person for the lunch and show The menu
