like to commend Mr Bob Peterson for his informative article in die l April 17 Z station on Loop 337 late at night I was forced by a local woman into the oncoming lane of traffic when she failed to yield A speeding oncoming driver had just passed this intersection which is per acre according to Recycling can delay the need for additional landfill space Its so easy toss all your alu minum cans tin cans glass and plastic 1 and 2 in your blue bin then set it tics Change is inevitable the time for a more mature perspective is overdue Let us then pass through once again and not fight through protest but through like tqaadjjbitjof myjownadyjce jf I to her home Her husband and teenage daughter were in the driveway waiting for her I asked her what on earth she was thinking of when she turned her face toward me while I was in the oncoming lane trying to gain control of my car and laughed at me She admitted she saw me coming and then in front of her daughter remarked Whats the big deal So I made a sim ple When this daughter starts driving she will probably wonder why teenage auto insurance is higher than her parents Jim D Mooney New Braunfels Recycling efforts paying off Editor Here is some good news After 14 months of recycling we have diverted pounds or approximately tons of recyclable materials from the Comal County Landfill We did not have to pay this landfill per load for the equivalent of 181 truck loads you diverted by recycling Our most recycled commodity was newspaper weighing in at pounds The paper you are reading now is printed on recycled paper perhaps on paper you recycled How do we measure up to the rest of the nation The national average par ticipation rate for curbside recycling is between 30 and 40 percent Our neighborhoods are participating at a rate of almost 40 percent Your participation will help us reach our goal of 50 to 6 percent participation by the end of the second year of recycling Why should we increase our partici pation in recycling Startup costs for new landfills run a half million dollars may According to my research one of the leading causesofauto accidents in New Braunfels and surrounding areas is the incomprehension of traffic control sign on which is written YIELD RIGHT OF Some states signs such as this simply read I have a certificate for over 1 million miles of driving in 10 southern states The Texas DPS puts out a large manu al entitledTEXAS TRAFFIC LAWS over 500 page 228 Sect 73 VSC Art is a very clear legal definition of a YIELD RIGHT OF WAY traffic control sign Being as New Braunfels has more than its share of these signs I think it would behoove the drivers of New Braunfels to read this section Especially the local high school students who are supposed to have completed a taxsupported stu dent drivers course The law does not say to speed up when an approaching car has the through traffic rightofway and try to beat him to the intersection The law states you are supposed to STOP YIELD to approaching through traffic when you are entering the intersection at any angle to further clarify the law if you do or do not completely stop at the yield sign and are involved in a collision of any kind with another vehicle which IS the through you shall be faulted by law prima facie even if the other vehicle increases his speed in order to beat you The accident is still your fault This legally means if you do not or cannot pay a lien can be placed on you or your guardians prop erty Get real Recently in frorrfof the local radio on a blind curve I followed this oh the curb oh ywtfrecycling

Striders A response to the KKK Editor In consideration of the upcoming event of the KKK rally let us recognize and celebrate the rights we enjoy in this country to express our beliefs It is one of the rights that so many fought and died for one that we should not take for granted Our primary concern must be for the wellbeing of New Braunfels We have weathered every tumultuous challenge that growth has produced We have greeted and waved goodbye to every passing event New Braunfels has proven its worthiness its stability We have passed the torch from pioneers to settlers to men of commerce and
