bluff It seems that Congress has reached the stage in the welfare reform debate where a little bluffcalling is in order For 11 months the Clinton admin istration has refused to grant Texas a welfare waiver holding the cards close to its vest and revealing little infor mation One only surmise that the administration hought Texas would fold But this otesident doesnt know how we Texans play poker Rather than fold we have upped the ante On May 22 Senator Phil Gramm and I introduced legislation to give states the right to make the process of determining social services eligibility more efficient In October 1996 Congress enacted and the President signed into law land mark legislation billed as a plan to end welfare as we know Con gress intent which the Presi dent endorsed throughout the entire debate was to allow states to set up more effec tive accessible well are systems Congress asked the states to do a job and Texas was quick off the mark to comply State officials requested a waiver from the Department of Health and Human Services that would permit us to establish partnerships to run onestop eligibility centers for welfare food stamp and Medicaid claims What the state formally Kay Bailey Hutchison requested was permission to take bids on such services This sat on the Presidents desk for five months The plan which goes by the acronym TIES for Texas Integrated Enrollment Services would consoli date 20 separate application processes for public assistance State officials estimate TIES will save Texas tax payers at least million a year in administrative overhead With those savings the state intended to provide health care coverage to an additional needy Texas children The current conflict over welfare reform between Texas and the federal government is simple Congress gave states the authority to experiment to run their systems more efficiently Texas did just that and federal big government said Welfare as we know it remains the same wasteful mess that it was the day the welfare reform bill was signed thanks to the administrations refusal to let Texas play the hand Con gress dealt it I have arrived at the reluctant con clusion that the only way to rectify this situation is to pass a law that will allow Texans to run Texas welfare system Congress clear intent in the 1996 welfare reform bill was to give states the flexibility to design welfare systems best suited to their own needs Congress will have to call the exec utive branchs bluff The administra tion can honor the law and allow plans such as the TIES proposal to go for ward unimpeded But if the adminis tration is going to thwart the law of the land Congress must act No other out come is in the cards Kay Bailey Hutchison is a sen ator representing sow Letter to the Editor Writeem Nowotny staff taught players positive traits Editor We are writing in reply to the Heralds coverage of the entire CHS hazing As former foot ball players at we participated in Coach Nowotnys football program from his first year at Canyon until Brette graduated last year We feel that someone should set the record straight Coach Nowotny and his staff have been a blessing to both the school and the players from day one Not only have they won football games but they have taught countless players the values of hard work dis cipline confidence and numerous other positive traits that any student from competitive athletics You cannot count the number of boys who have developed into line j ng men under the watchful and always caring eyes of Coach Nowotny and his staff They may not have always been perfect but every one of those coaches has given percent to every kid that has gone out to play It is id to see such a fine group of men being attacked by a small group of nonsupportive players and parents As college athletes we can attest that some form of initiation exists at eveiy level of team sport From middle school to the NFL younger players are required to sing songs carry lunch trays and perform other menial activities to show respect to older players and to earn their own respect There is no doubt this can go too far Coach Nowotny is an honest Christian man who runs his program with as much discipline as is possible with todays kids There is no doubt that if he had known of any wrong doing he would have put a stop to it immediately We dont care what any play ers may have said to protect themselves the coach ing staff did not knowingly allow hazing in the pro gram As for similar actions being tradition well that is totally untrue We were there and it was not tra dition for any of the six years that we were in the pro gram We have many friends that played for Coach Nowotny and there are many voices that agree that CISD has made a huge mistake Unfortunately the loss of Coach Nowotny also spells the loss of some of his assistants We are sad to see the end of such a fine group of coaches who have changed so many young men for the better Whoever replaces them has big shoes to fill Thanks to Coach Nowotny Coach Burk Coach Kosser Coach Miller Coach Bueno Coach Behrend Coach Everett Coach Falan and any that we may have forgotten to name who helped to make us what we are today You guys will always be remembered fondly by the real Cougars Chip Fairish and Brette nrisli Ganrn Ridge Senate Sen Kay Bailey Hutchison 283 Russell Senate Office Wash ington 20510
