New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 22, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung o Sunday June O 3A Neighborhood mom has a few rules to share vtfth readers DEAR ABBY I have two children of my own but some days I feel as though I have 10 or 12 There are many children in the neighborhood where 1 live The following is some information for my neighbors 1 call it the Common Rules of Parental Etiquette 1 I am not the neighborhood baby sitter Sending your children to my house for several hours does not absolve you of the responsibility of checking on your children on a regular basis 2 Please do not allow your children to pick the flowers I took the time and money to plant If your children come home with plucked from someone elses garden explain to them the dishonesty of their act even Tobacco deal needs approval of Clinton WASHINGTON AP Anti smoking forces wrested concessions from the tobacco industry in a landmark multibilliondollar settlement but they know their battle is not yet won Congress and President Clinton still can reject all or part of the billion agreement greeted Friday with mostly cautious reserve We could be in a position of rejecting it or accepting it I havent seen it Clinton said in Denver He noted however that an enormous amount of money had been wrung from the tobacco companies The agreement negotiated for months by state attorneys general health advocates trial lawyers and cigarette makers would make tobacco companies change how their products are advertised sold and v the industry would get what its investors crave key relief from lawsuits and legal bills In a statement the tobacco industry called the proposal a bitter but said the companies preferred the plan to a continuation of the decadeslong controversy over smoking But even as antismoking advocates announced the agreement with fanfare in a hotel ballroom a man dragged heavily on a cigar in the lobby And in the tobacco country of North Carolina Sarah Ablang puffed on a cigarette outside a Raleigh office building They can do whatever they want It doesnt affect she said I know the dangers of smoking Its my choice to The agreement calls for tough new warnings on cigarette packs such as Smoking can kill and would give smokers free medical help to quit The government also could lower the permissible level of nicotine in cigarettes And tobacco ads would change dramatically no more billboards or splashy color spreads in magazines that critics said were targeted at teen agers With the agreement Joe Camel and the Marlboro Man will move to the same chapter of our nations history as said Florida Attorney General Bob Butterworth Under the settlement the industry would pay billion over 25 years mostly to finance anti smoking campaigns and repay state Medicaid money spent treating sick Smokers the reason 40 states sued After that the industry would continue to pay billion every year Sick smokers could still sue the industry Any money they won for medical bills lost wages or other actual damages would be paid from a billionayear fund set up by the tobacco industry Smokers also could win punitive damages for future wrongdoing by tobacco companies Individual smokers though could not sue for punitive damages for any past misconduct by tobacco companies Instead as punishment for all past wrongdoing the settlement includes a billion tobacco industry Rind part of that to provide health care for uninsured children though it seems like a sweet thing for them to have done And by the way since Im the only one with certain varieties of flowers in my garden pleading ignorance as to where they came from wont work Also breaking down my bushes and plants with balls and bats is not acceptable 3 Foisting your children off on me for several hours and then later the same day refusing to allow my child into your home to play because my child already has a friend over doesnt work for me It also sets the wrong example for your child The message it gives is You can use anyone you want and not give anything in 4 Memorial Day Labor Day and Fourth of July mean picnics and parties for family and friends If Im having a party and your child wasnt invited please keep him home Last year I spent the Fourth of July with three stray children who were eating food and drinking beverages my friends brought for our picnic 5 If your child asks to eat at my home or go somewhere with me please have the courtesy to check with me to be sure an invitation was extended Yes I heard your child yell across the street and ask if it was OK to eat at my house And yes I heard you say it was OK However I didnt hear you ask me if I had invited her Well guess what I didnt My child didnt either So your child was sent home 6 In my home no one child or adult gets anything without a please and thank That is of course common courtesy but it doesnt seem to be an important lesson in some homes 7 Your children are welcome to play in my yard if everyone gets along if there is no bad language or namecalling and if you take a turn having them play in your yard I have no grass in my yard now due to baseball games and my flower beds are destroyed And every child playing at my home has an excuse Illegal immigrants rounded up From staff reports The Immigration and Naturalization Service rounded up 321 illegal immigrants Friday from a threecounty area including Comal County according to a San Antonio ExpressNews report A few of them might be housed at the Comal County jail a frequent stopping point for illegal aliens on their way out of Texas according to Comal County Sheriffs Sergeant Kermit Vetter They did bring eight of them in here for us to house over the Vetter said but I dont know where the apprehensions The only information local jail officials are given is the date of birth name an immigration control identification number and nationality Vetter said INS officers call the sheriffs office almost daily to check how much room the jail has Vetter said They bring us some just about every day then take some away for A smaller scale local INS sweep caught several illegal aliens late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning Vetter said I had a number of calls looking for people who were picked up at the Rosedale he said Area sheriffs officers did not play a part in Fridays sweep The sheriffs office contracts with the INS to house illegal aliens but does not participate in their capture Sheriff Bob Holder said Theyre enforcing federal law we dont have anything to do with he said Texas Rangers seek murder charge in border confrontation shootout EL PASO AP As Congress moved toward using more soldiers along the border authorities said they will seek a murder charge against a Marine suspected of killing a teenager in a Texas Rangers Capt Barry Caver said the indictment will be sought against Marine Cpl Clemente Banuelos who allegedly shot and killed 18yearold Ezequiel Hernandez last month Lesser charges will be sought against the three other Marines who were on patrol with Banuelos on May 20 Caver said in Saturdays El Paso Times Military officials said a member of the fourman surveillance team shot Hernandez after the teen fired twice at the Marines who were watching a suspected drug route at the request of the Border Patrol The military maintains Hernandez raised his 22caliber rifle for a third shot when the Marine opened fire It argued the shooting was self defense State investigators said evidence gathered so far reveals discrepancies in the militarys version of the events in Redford a farming community 200 miles southeast of El Paso Caver said the angle of the teens wound indicates Hernandez was aiming away from the Marines who were fully camouflaged The teens family has said he sometimes shot at targets with he carried to protect his goats Chief investigator David Duncan said the Marines waited 22 minutes after the shooting before giving first aid or calling for help He said he didnt know if the delay might have played a role in the death Investigators also have obtained subpoenas for three officials with Joint Task Force Six a military agency that coordinates antidrug missions involving the armed forces and civilian authorities In Washington and outside El Pasos federal building there were small rallies to commemorate the onemonth anniversary of Hernandezs death and to renew calls to keep the military away from the border But even as protesters hoisted signs urging an end to Military Terror Against the House approved a measure that could station up to troops along the border to help stop illegal immigration and drug traffic Recently Moved Getting Married New Baby Give us a call Lena Davis CISD 6090273 WELCOME AGON Judy Wallisch NBISD 6258743 I have not the
