New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 29, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas ehaptroiM proud Editor May had the pleasure of accompanying my husband a teacher at Smithson Valley High School ort the yeariy Senior Day trip to Fiesta Texas We rode there and returned on one of three buses AH day I observed and visited with a great group of young people they were fun happy assured and a delight to be with At the end of the day I could not recall hearing one bad word nor wit nessing any inappropriate actions Look out world Here comes a group of young people of which their parents teachers and community can be proud Fran Hargrove New Braunfels Kim to to oppoMd Editor The following letter was addressed to City Editor Roger The opinion article in the paper writ ten by you titled A message the Klan wont forget caused quite a stir in my household Heather my wife cut the article out of the HeraldZeitung while she was visiting her parents in New Braunfels I also office in New Braunfels We talked about the sub ject of the Klan all the way home about 50 minutes and several more times before today Our choices for the June 1 date are an animal auction in Lampasas or mooning the Klan We both voted for going to New Braun fels and demonstrating to the KKK that we feel that they are a bunch of and they make me sick although we decided simply to bring placards or wear a Tshirt with the appropriate message written on it But what made me a bit sicker was the conversation I just had with you If I remember correctly you have received approximately 36 queries with only 13 or 14 supporting your posi tion and the rest calling you an idiot or words to that Incredible It has always seemed to me that New Braunfels was a very nice town with caring friendly and intelligent people Apparently I was wrong Joe Desormeaux Wimberley Thli town em few proud of Editor On May 13 and 14 the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture hosted over 160 fourth graders from Frazter Ele mentary It delights me to report that they were the nicest most polite and smartest group of and 1 0year olds anyone could ever hope for They had been studying pioneer life and were genuinely interested in all the old stuff we have on our grounds and asked some great questions too Thanks to all the students and their teachers Ann Baese Ms Denise Bennett Mrs Rachael Groom Ms Carroll Meadows Ms Mary Patter son Mrs Kathy Suarez Mrs Trish Tucker and Ms Laurie Wade and con gratulations to the Comal Independent School District and to all the parents too Keep up the good work Frances Marquis Museum Director Rlvor rowdlos drlvo family from fishing hole Editor On a recent weekday afternoon I decided to take my fiveyearold son fishing on the Comal River down by the public tuber exit on Garden Street The intent was not so much to actual ly catch fish as much as it was to just do something together About 15 min utes after we arrived some drunk obnoxious foulmouthed tourists you know the ones that are necessary for our economy came floating around the bend heading for the exit My son and I tried to continue fishing hoping that they would simply exit the river and leave Wrong They decided to go ahead and kill the rest of their beer and put on a public display of their lack of knowledge of the English language During the course of their conversa we heard every fourletter word imaginable and among these seven adults I use that term loosely you probably could not find three words that they used in a dictionary My son and I left even though we should not have had to After all we live here Something needs to be done about the alcohol and the behavior of these hoodlums on the riv er It is sad that children cannot even fish and swim in the rivers of their own town without hiving to endure that kind of behavior from outoftown visitors It is even sadder that we as a community are so worried about the dollars that these types of tourists11 bring into our economy that we have become tolerant of it Steve Decent Neri Braunfels JtMt ttaytng away aomte Editor Having read Mr Croteaus opus pro pounding mooning the Ku Klux Klan 1 am waiting with titillated anticipa tion for the event to transpire What an intellectually stimulating prospect a group of fools the Klan watching another group of fools exposing the most laughable portion of their anatomies to public scrutiny How fit ting two groups of fools looking fool ish Hmmm Just stay away Its as easy as that The Klan wants us to be there and by the way so do the media types Dont even begin to think they wont be there looking for anything to create some sort of tawdry controversy if the only people on the plaza that evening are the Klan and the media both of those groups will be sorely dis appointed and New Braunfels will have made an important statement to the Klan the media and the will not sully ourselves we will not lower ourselves to your level by play ing your stupid game Do whatever you are going to do and get out of our town And stay Bill Kretzmeier Schumannsville Klan has a now Imago but tho aamo old massage Editor At a recent local mixer the conver sation shifted to the upcoming Ku Klux Klan rally It was relayed to me that persons representing the KKK intend ed to shed their sheets and hate image and represent themselves to be just like They will bring up issues that many of us can relate to if not agree with government issues and legal issues Let us however not forget that the darker side of this gttHip still holds to raciil doctrines that are at the heart of Nazi ideology Antiquated thoughts of whitt supremacy thinly veiled under ft modem alias Their new image conveys to me a brilliantly conceived desperation dying culture to neutralize the fears of us who refuse to forget history LeAnne Wright NewBraunfels Koop pota safo In summer Editor As summer officially anives and the weather heats up The Humane Society of the United States HSUS reminds readers that pets like people can suf fer from the heat especially when left in parked cars Since the tempera ture inside a car can reach 160 degrees in a matter of minutes even a short car trip prove deadly to your pet When its hot leave your pet at home And if you See an animal or child in a poten tially dangerous situation notify the police local animal control or the humane society immediately With only hot air to breathe inside a car a pet can quickly suffer brain dam age or die from heat stroke Partially opened windows shaded parking areas or air conditioned cars with the motor off will not save your pet from the devastating

and Irene dra Nell Harhut of Canyon Lake Lynn Townsend of New Braunfels TrejoofSeguin Walker Mfc Humility A tough word in todays society Somehow humility is equated with smarmy Uriah Heep who con stantly tells oth ers he is an unworthy nobody But thats not true humility Humility is not selfdegradation To understand the ity take a look at the opposite vice pride When we proud we fail to consider the influence our actions have on others We care only for outdoing the other person Pride leads to all other vices Avarice anger unchastity all have their source in pride Take greed as an example Greed will make us want more up to a cer tain point We may want a better home a better car better vacations But after a certain level of comfort only pride makes Us want more The proud want more so that they can feel superior to others The person who is richer or smarter or more ath letic becomes a rival and enemy to the proud man or woman For the proud more is never enough Pride is antihumanity Pride is rebellion against everything but the self Dark diabolical pride comes when we consider others so inade quate that we could care less what they think of us No fault makes us more unpopular And no fault is more difficult to rec ognize in ourselves We dont want to admit we are filled with pride any more than we wish to confess a lack of humor How do you know youve got a bad case of pride If you abhor pride in others youre proud We tend to hate the vices in others that we have in If you hate it when people snub you or refuse to notice pride competes with everyone elses V f IHJfa pnde If you are proud that you are not is proud is others than you are very proud indeed Pride is competitive Proud peo ple are proud of being richer more intelligent more attractive than any one else The pleasure in pride comes from being above others A proud peison gains no pleasure from having something for its own sake A proud person gains pleasure from having more than the other smarter richer more athletic than others Eliminate competition and pride no longer exists Pride is the chief cause of misery on earth You may find happy drunks friendly gluttons and lovable lusty lads but with pride you find and anger Pride destroys the possibility of love and contentment Taking pleasure from pleasing someone you care for is not pride taking pleasure from accomplish ment because it makes you feel bet ter than someone is pride Being proud of a son in a way that reflects warmhearted admiration is not pride being proud of a son because his accomplishments make you feel superior to others is pride Now prides opposite humility I wish I could write more of humili ty but sadly having more firsthand experience with pride I am more knowledgeable of the vice than the virtue I can write this When I take a genuine interest in the other person not from what I can get but from what I can give I am contented peaceful loving When I care about the other person as much as myself I am joyful When greed jeal ousy envy competitiveness are replaced by the wish to serve humil ity abounds The first step to humility I think is to admit that one is proud The next step is to consider others just as important as oneself The humble use their gifts and talents to serve others The humble do not think about their humility that would be they do no think about themselves at all By
