1328 We need your help We here at the New Braunfels Her aldZeitung want to know what ser vices and features you would like your local newspaper to provide This past week at one of the Little League fields a reader spotted me and explained how she appreciated the cre ation of our Heads Up column on the front page The purpose of Heads Up is truly just to give you a heads up on situations or events that are happening that day or the next that might have a direct impact on you or your family This reader mentioned the daily updates on road work on Interstate 35 The mess on that highway affects many of our readers and we at the Herald Zeitung have an obligation to keep dri vers posted of changes and construc tion Our worlds are becoming more and more complex and time continues to become one of our most precious intan gible possessions The news staff needs to be looking out for the readers letting them know when changes or situations might present unexpected obstacles to accomplishing everyday objectives Doug Toney Who better than you to help us fig ure out what those situations and events are The Herald Zeitung staffs goal this summer is to reconsider every aspect of the content of the newspaper With the help of you and other readers we hope to improve and expand the services we provide We are looking for volunteers like you who will let us know what they would like to see and read in the Her aldZeitung Some of what Ive already heard includes more state and national arti cles Several years ago the Herald Zeitung reduced much of the news arti cles from outside of Comal County We plan to increase not only the num ber of state national and international stories but increase our local informa tion as well What kind of local infor mation we add will depend on what our readers tell us they want The next time you need to know something ponder whether its some thing you and others might appreciate having in the HeraldZeitung What about comics Which of our comics do you like Dislike Do you know of a comic we are not currently publishing that you would like to see in our newspaper Let us know What about our columnists Cal Thomas Dear Abby our local colum nists More stories on child rearing fishing environment cooking edu cation weather gardening Let us know What about sports coverage As a reader and a parent I would like to see more coverage of Little

to see more coverage of their sports in the HeraldZeitung With literally thousands of New Braunfels and Comal County residents young and old participating in sports we would need the cooperation and assistance of coaches and league orga nizers to ensure that information such as scores and standings could be gath ered and published in the newspaper in a timely manner Were certainly will ing to do

very long after that a man came and asked me if I would go with him to the altar When he said this I already knew that it was of the Lord and I went Thank you Lord I got deliv ered from all the chains of my life Hal Jim Fox lelujah When I went home and tried to explain what hap pened I felt like they said I was crazy When my family and I went back home nothing was the same I found myself talk ing
