beginnmgtD Stephens began his training about a year December 1995 when he had just finished hell probably the most grueling week of military training in the world Since hell week he has spent a lot of time under water Besides training with traditional scuba gear Stephens spent about a month perfecting the use of the ultrahightech Draeger rebreathing device Formerly trained by Bud Dallmann at the Landa Park pool Stephens practiced underwater night time navigation He did not wear any sort of night vision goggles You have a tachometer and you navigate by kicks a ceriaiji number of kicks for a

Stephens graduation ceremony was a mix of somber tradition and exulta tion at having made it Lt Gen J T Scott Commanding Gen eral of the Army Special Operations Command gave the keynote speech to the 27 gradu class began a new tradition Each graduate walked onebyone before a line of his instructors and senior officers so they could exchange memories and comments Women arent allowed to be SEALs Tne

know that hell be doing something honorable and that God is with Stephens asked his mother if she had prepared that statement she said but Ive given it a lot of thought over the past Susan Flynt England is a columnist and editori al assistant for the Letter to the Editor Perverts have changed complexion of our eoclety Editor Many years ago when I was a small boy on a farm in northeast Texas my day was made if an old man any old man paid attention to me I remember that most old men with a beard seemed to be always saying something dry but humorous to the youngsters There seemed to be a very special bond between the very old and the very young Today we teach our children to avoid ANY contact with strangers especially old men Although I only knew my grandfather until I was less than six years old I still remember his attention and humor I wanted to be just like him when I was old Unfortunately he died that year In todays sick society we have perverts that have suc ceeded in destroying this bond of affection between the old and very young If a young child drops his toy and if I make the mistake of trying to hand it back to him the parent picks up the child and suspiciously glares at me How sad I quit playing Santa Claus which I thor oughly when a parent handed me a baby to hold in a snapshot I had to balance it by its rear in case it jumped suddenly and fell from my grip When they arci older lift them underneath their armpits but not when they are babies Professional Santas are instructed in this technique to prevent liability suits I became aware as the seasons passed that more of the old er women were coldly staring at me for this as if I had Today in History some affection for handling a soiled baby diaper or some other motive I try not to hate most people but there must be a spe cial place in hell for the sexual deviates that have turned into Sodom and Gomorrah It would be better had they been thrown into the sea with a millstone around their necks You see we have not broken the laws of America which todays politicians make and then exploit for their own political advantage We have bro ken Gods laws Three witnesses Matthew Mark and Luke Jim New Braunfels Wenzel questions accuracy of quotes Editor I appreciate that the newspaper sent a reporter to the youth sports complex board meeting However there were a couple of inaccurate quotes attributed to me I did not say that Mr Westpn owned to acres I do not know Mr Weston and I do not know how much land he owns However I admire him in that he is will ing to give so much to the youth of New Braunfels The other inaccuracy was that I said that the city terminated the lease of the girls sbftball at Comal Park What I said was that the city manager said that if he gets an offer on the land at Comal Park he will recommend selling the property and that it is a very valuable piece of property Larry NewBraunfeb Write em GOVERNMENT OFRCES President of the Bill Clinton 1600
