   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 6, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas                                Sad parent endures HeraldZettung p Sunday July g 3A Dear Abby I am writing you with the hope that people will readthis and think about it I lost my beautiful daughter and her fianci to a drunk driver She was only 20 and her fiance was 23 The driver had three DUIs and the passenger had five These two individuals neither of whom had drivers licenses left the scene of the accident They did not help or even go for help but just ran My daughters wedding would have been in seven months Most of the plans were complete I miss my daughter so much She was my only child Her fiance was smart and such a kind person This should never have happened Our courts need to be tougher We chose to bury my daughter and her fianc6 side by side On their headstone we have a picture of the two of them hugging each other with their engagement date beneath the picture and the words Together It is a tribute to their memory We have placed items on their grave many times Abby I cannot understand why people have taken the items we left I am shocked that people could be so cold and heartless that theyd take things off a grave I know my baby is gone but her body was placed there I visit and take gifts out of love and respect for their memory She was my life my joy my child For someone to come and steal from her grave hurts beyond words SAD IN SOUTH CAROLINA Dear Sad Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your beloved only child Cemetery policies vary from place to place Most cemeteries will allow items to remain on a gravesite only for a limited period after which they are removed by personnel so the grounds can be properly maintained Discuss your concerns with the cemeterys management to see if they have removed the items you left or whether there may be a problem with theft If items are being stolen the management should be alerted so that security procedures can be put in place Dear Abby Im writing in response to the mother of the 17 yearold who was dating a guy Mom felt was bad news Your answer that the daughter may have to learn for herself was exactly right Abby When I was 16 I started dating a guy my parents felt was bad for me They told me one time how they felt about him then let me make my own decisions and come to my own conclusions It took me four years to realize what my parents had known from the start but it was a learning experience I wouldnt trade for anything I know it was difficult for my parents to keep their comments about him to themselves and not interfere but I thank them for doing so That relationship made me who I dm today It made me understand my strengths and weaknesses what I wanted in life and what I didnt I am now 25 years old and married thieves at childs gra to a man who is everything I ever wanted jnd everything my badnews boyfriend wasnt HAPPILY EVER AFTER Dear Happily Ever After It Is never easy to witch a child stumble or make mistakes but the lessons learned from personal experience are the ones most clearly remembered as your letter attests Author Forster said it well Spoonfeeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the Dear Abby I took my dog fishing with me to a lake in the mountains near here Hes well behaved and I had him on a leash but he was attracted to some discarded balled up fishing line with bait on it He gulped it down I didnt see this so when I turned around I had a dog with a fishing line leading into his mouth and down his throat This involved a rush trip down the mountain to the emergency vet clinic hours of anguish and lots of money The vet told me he sees about one dog a week who has swallowed a fishing line with a fish hook Dog owners beware And fishermen Never drop a discarded line with a hook It could be your own dog you catch KEITH JACKSON DENVER Dear Keith What a harrowing experience Fishermen should remember they are sportsmen And good sportsmen respect the environment and never leave litter behind To leave items lying around that could be dangerous to pets children or wildlife is unconscionable work to use every drop that falls on crops Irrigation diking tested for best water savings BUSHLAND Researchers at the USDAARS Conservation and Production Agriculture Laboratory are looking for ways to save every ounce of water needed to grow crops whether it is applied or received as rainfall The work involves water runoff from low energy precision application irrigation systems where it is being measured from both diked and undiked or open said USDAs agricultural engineers Commissioners Court Commissioners Approved adaitional to pay public defenders in the county court at law According to that office filings have gone up 105 percent since last year at this time from 549 to Revenue is also up County Commissioner Jack Dawson said the county already spends about on public defenders in the county and district courts He said current growth patterns indicate it might be time for the county to consider creating its own public defenders office I think from my numbers the county can save tens or hundreds of thousands of he said County Commissioner Moe Schwab said creating the office could be necessary in the future but said this issue might need to be brought up during the budgeting process LcCsTalk Real Estate by Mickey Ferrell CRB CRS GRI MAKING PROVISIONS One common provision on pur chase contracts is die mortgagecon tingency rider which allows the buyer a specified period of time to obtain a commitment for financing at a specified interest rate for a cer tain amount of money This critical protection for the buyer allows the buyer to void the contract without penalty in cases in which the buyer is unable to obtain financing after mak ing a reasonable effort to do so with in the rime provided Because this type of clause is favorable to the buyer a real estate agent may suggest that the buyer obtain a prequalifica tion from the lender This gives the seller a degree of confidence that the buyer will not use the clause to void the contract Though it sounds as though all the advantages of obtaining prequalifica tion for a loan go to the seller there are things to be gained by buyers too First knowing exactly ceil ing for indebtedness will eliminate wasting time looking at homes beyond reach Secondly it can spare you the cost of multiple applications for loans for one property after another Finally if you end up in a f bidding war for a very desirable I property having been preapproved for a loan will give you die edge because youre a sure thing to the seller Call MICKEY FCRRELL REALTORS INC at 3723670 in our Seguin office at 801 N 123 I or in die McQueeneyl office 8610 FM 725 at 5575824 I Arland Schneider and Terry Howell who are conducting the study The engineers first schedule full irrigation based on accurate soil water measurements so that soil water is maintained at a high level typical of that for highyield com and sorghum production grown in slow permeable Pullman clay loam soil Fullyirrigated plots receive an inch of water per said Schneider Then our attention is focused on plots where we employ deficit irrigation using only 80 percent 60 percent and 40 percent of that applied to the fullyirrigated plots on the same day A zero percent or nonirrigated treatment is also maintained for comparison purposes We plant grain sorghum although the study results are certainly applicable to corn ot other row he said The experimental area has 30inch beds divided into are seeking ways to make every drop of water used to irrigate crops Terry Howell USDA agricultural engineer equal sections Half will have furrows which are diked and the other is left undiked or open Dike spacing is accomplished with a commercial trip and roll type diker and the dike spacing varies from 5 to 8 feet Runoff from the 30feet wide 12 rows by 66feet long spaces is collected at the lower corner of the plots and pumped with small pumps into steel tanks for volumetric measurement The field slope is percent along with the furrows and percent across the Schneider added The LEPA irrigation system uses doubleended socks which have been spaced 60 inches apart on a threespan lateral move irrigation system With ample rainfall during the late summer of 1996 we had only three irrigations where runoff could be measured from the he said The scientists said with open furrows and full irrigation using LEPA at least 40 percent to 50 percent of the applied water could run off the plots When the furrow dikes became partially eroded as much as 20 percent of water applied with LEPA ran off the plots Schneider added With a normal sized field all that runoff water may not actually leave the field but it would move down the field gradient to the lowest point resulting in uneven Furrow diking resulted in 2 inches more soil water storage in the upper 3 feet with LEPA irrigation and 1 inch more with spray irrigation after seven seasonal applications With the unusual amounts of rainfall in the summer of 1996 however grain sorghum yields were approximately pounds per acre for all irrigation treatments except the 40 percent deficit ones which had yielded about pounds per acre Clearly last summers rainfall wasnt typical for this Howell said So the field study be continued and irrigation runoff from spray application methods with or without diking will be measured in the coming years too We are seeking ways to make every drop of water used to irrigate crops
