   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 22, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas                                2 O Thursday May New Braiuifels asks contractor why clubhouse will be late By ABE LEVY Staff Writer Tht Landa Park Golf Course Clubhouse will not be ready by June 23 and City of New Braunfels officials want to know why City Manager Mike Shands and two members of the Landa Park Golf Advisory Board met Wednesday to write a letter to Design and General Consulting Inc of San Antonio to Carvers ask whether there was a problem with the original time line Shands said the contractor could claim weather days and other circumstances such as the lack of availability of materials as legitmate reasons to push back the deadline At this point the job would not be completed until late July Shands said but still it was possible the company had legitimate reasons for delays For every day that the clubhouse is closed the city loses potentially thousands of Shands said Its always better to put these things in writing to have a date to refer to They have had an adequate amount of time to put into the project Six months is more than adequate They may get two or three bids at one time The jobs run in cycles but on this one there doesnt seem to be this cycling on this projects They may surprise us and say there is no problem and we can finish on If the contractor can not justify a delay it would have to pay penalties to the city Shands said He said at least four weeks of rain could be justified and possibly a delay with one of its suppliers Obituaries Harry Collins

our history Wall said As a free country were entitled to it Its the No 1 thing that built this country and some of the founding fathers risked their lives to be Wall is director of Spirit of 76 a local group that studies the history of America but said this petition was not connected with his involvement with the group An estimated 100 people have signed the petition that Wall said his friends had copied and circulated in various churches throughout New Braunfels Locally he said he wanted to encourage judges to take a stand by following Moores policies are probably some judges blrt ititifetolSgf to stanid by he said are politicians Its easier to stand for What you believeif there are a lot of people standing behind All three district judges with jurisdiction in Comal County Jack

Court at Law Judge Fred Clark said he did not want to comment his assistant said Wall a member of Tree of Life has found support with Comal County District Attorney Dib who has signed the petition committed to gathering petitions they come in V Waldrip a member of First Baptist in New Braunfels said since Ten Commandments are Inscribed on the outside walls of the Supreme Court building them inside Comal courtrooms would be appropriate To have some very central values by the keeper of the law in 7Comal County sets a pretty good he said Honor your Smother and father Whats wrong xwith that If youre of Hindu or Jewish or Seventh Day V Adyentists whats wrong with jaying Im willing for that to be a It doesnt mean that the is taking a stand for County officials said the Commissioners Courts approval required for the Ten Commandments to be posted in local courtrooms arid prayers to open court sessions Jay Jacobson executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas disagrees with the petition If you have a government official placing a religious text in particular l a courtroom where its supposed to be impartial you send the wrong message Its an endorsement of a he said Government Should remain neutral on the question of religion People want to use the of the government to impart truth Religious truth is found in peoples Jacobson said the writer of the Bill of Rights James Madison drafted the document to establish policies that would recognize a variety of religions In fact he said Madison didnt want chapels in the armed forces because he thought they would result in the same governmentsponsored church that the founding fathers fought while in England American law he said was the result of many sources including the Ten Commandments and other moral codes from nonChristian sources The Ten Commandments are posted on the outside wall of the Supreme Court Building only as a symbol of the history of American law he said In a nation that is committed to religious freedoms an affirmation of a particular faith is not only inappropriate but is Jacobson said Justice of the Peace for Precinct 4 Howard Smith said he would allow prayer in his courtroom from whatever religious persuasion a person desired but that it would not become a courtroom policy Posting the Ten Commandments in his courtroom which handles class C misdemeanors or civil cases up to a limit would be up to the Commissioners Court A lot of times I say a prayer when I think I need said Smith who has worked at the JP court in Sattler for 16 years and is a member of the Church in the Valley an Canyon Lake area a policy 6r posting tffPTen Commandments wont help because people dont come to the courtroom for church purposes The church and the state should never be mixed Youve got to comply with the law if youre going to do your Justice of the Peace for Precinct 1 Ray Martinez said he would not favor Walls requests becaiise it would mix religion with the judicial system This is a courtroom of justice This is not a house said Martinez who attends Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Church in New Braunfels We dont want to offend anyone because our main concern is justice It could be a Constitutional Local ministers expressed mixed opinions about Walls idea Judith Miller one of three pastors at St Paul Lutheran Church in New Braunfels said she would have to think about the ramifications of posting the Ten Commandments in courtrooms before signing the petition If Jesus would post something in a court room hed probably post Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as she said Every major religion has a basic set of philosophies but why would I want to impose one of those on all people Its not easy being a conscientious Christian today Im not sure posting the Ten Commandments in Comal County courtrooms would solve all our problems and change things that she said Dennis Gallaher pastor of Freedom Fellowship Church inNew BraMfeTsV said he signed the petition fit would reflect the values of this community and the courts in this he said I dont think anything the ACLU says I would agree with They are such a minority vocal but minority in mainstream First Baptist Church pastor Gordon Graham said he along with about 95 percent of his congregation would sign the petition I dont see how this is he said Our basic laws were founded on the Ten Commandments Some of my best friends are Jewish and they have no problem with the Ten Monsignor Eugene OCallaghan pastor of Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Church said he would sign the petition I would love to be able to walk into a courtroom and have the Ten Commandments I have no problem with that at said All laws do come from the Ten Commandments If we follow them as we ought to I wouldnt see any The Associated
