Writer Dreams come true if you keep pursing them and believe in your self That was the message Linda Finch brought to a fourth grade class at Bulverde Elementary on Monday as she told them about the dream she is pursuing Finch a pilot from San Antonio dubbed World Flight The project entails Finch recreating the arbund theworld flight of Amelia Earhart in a similar plane She will drop a wreath over Howland Island where Earhart disappeared Finch will embark on her flight from Oakland CA on March and was in Lori Balcars class to share her dream with the students Finch talked with the students about Earharts told them stories about her personal life as well as her dreams She said Earhart wanted to make women pilots a common sight She also wanted to show people what could be accomplished by believing in yourself That was very important for her that anyone could do any job they put their minds said Finch I was very amazed by how she taught so many people to reach beyond their Finch told students a big part of the project is to raise aware ness about Earhart and her work She said most people only remem ber that she attempted the flight and disappeared while in route They dont know much about her life and her life was wonderful Thats what we want peo ple to learn she said Finch lis tened to short ranging from being a teacher to being the president to being a track star One girl even wants to be a doctor to find a cure for her broth ers skin disorder Finch told them dreams are never easy to accom plish She said they have to con tinuously work at them Finchs visit to Balcars class came after the students spent time studying aviation Earhart per suasive writing and believing in yourself The students wrote letters to Finch and she agreed to come They were in awe when they found said Balcar They said gosh it really In addition to the visit the stu dents were invited to come see and climb in the plane after she returns from her flight This is more learning than any textbook could said Prin cipal Linda Swanson The class also presented Finch with a tshirt and cap to wear on her flight and a PTA check to defray costs The students also J made a wreath that they gave to Finch and asked her to drop it with hers over Howland Island Finch said she would Garden Ridge well pays dividends By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer HemldZsttung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL They dont make em like that any more Jimmy Doran glances at a 1958 Impala at the swap meet and car show that attracted hundreds of visitors to the Comal County Fairgrounds over the weekend The annual event Is sponsored by the New Braunfels Rotary Club and the New Braunfels Area Car Club GARDEN RIDGE Seven months after its second water well was installed Garden Ridge Mayor Jay P Millikin said the well is working The city is extremely fortunate that we drilled the second Millikin said Its the insur ance policy we have been looking The 340foot Well was put into opera tion last October The reason Well was drilled was to provide an adequate backup for Well which was put into operation in 1987 and is located 100 feet from Well Both wells pump gallons of water per minute and are located on a one acre plot on FM 2252 Millikin said it did not take long for Well to prove its worth to both the city and its resi dents Three months after Well was installed the motor on Well 1 burned out We would have been up a creek without the alternative well source in the Mil likin said We had to pull the entire pump assembly system out After a routine mainte nance check on the turbine pump we found excessive calcium It never had been checked before for any routine At least this time the city of Garden Ridge was prepared for the emergency Three years ago when Millikin was in his first term as may or the motor on Well burned out leaving the city in a very precarious position We were lucky to find a replacement motor with twothirds less horsepower in San Antonio which allowed us to limp along until we had the motor on Well Millikin said We had to wait nine to 12 months to get the motor rewired Not only did we not have a backup motor but it took us a couple of weeks to get the smaller The city is looking for new improvements to its water system We are in the process of constructing our gallon ground storage Millikin said Our master plan calls for a gallon ground storage tank and our initial cost esti mates for it were at But I looked into it and saw that we could get gallons at the same Millikin said he would run his plan by the citys water commission and the council at its May meeting If everything goes as planned Millikin said he hoped to go out for bids in a minimum of two Tribute paid to journalist who died in Bosnia crash See Opinion Page 4 L
