New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 25, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Dear Abby Im a single mate in my late 20s I live in a treelined subdivision that borders on a common grounds wooded area with a running path My bathroom has two windows each one foot wide and six feet high Since the bathroom faces the wooded area 1 never felt it was important to close the blinds while getting dressed in the morning The other day I found a videotape in my mailbox along with a short nonthreatening note apparently from one of my neighbors It read Thanks for the show and giving me a reason to get up on time every NBISD From Page 1 One of those questions was If elected how would the candidate go about rebuilding the reputation of the district Villarreal said focus was needed on accomplishments the district had made over the years She said the past years events did not mean the district was in shambles We need to remember some of Budget From Page 1 full mqming to run Im not asking you to stop 1 just thought youd like to know how easy it is to see you in the morning when its dark out See you tomorrow Abby my problem isnt the embarrassment of someone seeing me in the nude it goes beyond that The video was 27 minutes long It started the moment I turned on my bathroom light which means this neighbor sat outside waiting for me and must have been just inches away from my window as you rarely see the vertical blinds The video covers my whole morning routine from going to the bathroom brushing my teeth shaving and 15 minutes in the shower This was far from a video that was shot from a distance There were closeups that filled the television screen I am Very uncomfortable and worried about security and what my neighbor could do with a copy of the tape Im a new homeowner here and dont want to get talked about around the neighborhood Abby what should I do IN LIVING COLOR IN ROYAL OAK MICH Dear In Living Color Close the blinds Dear Abby Since I retired Ive become my wifes prisoner If I want to explore a hardware store watch a stock ticker go fishing or play golf I am called selfish and She also gets upset if I dont want to follow her around the shopping mall I do plenty of that by the I am 67 and my wife is 63 We both drive and each have our own car so its not like shes tied to the house Am I wrong to want some space sometimes CAPTIVE HUSBAND IN COLORADO Dear Captive Every couple benefits from some time alone It gives them more to talk about when they are together As long as you devote a portion of the day exclusively to your wife and her needs she should have no objection if you go off by yourself occasionally Books are available at the library on how to handle retirement Check some out and educate yourself those so we dont repeat them but there are a lot of good things that have happened throughout the she said Lets not throw the baby out with the bath Rickel said the way to repair the damage was to show mutual respect and foster an open exchange of ideas Board unity doesnt mean a 70 she said Board unity can happen when we have a mutual respect for each Garza said the board needed to focus on setting policy not micro managing That and following the leadership of new superintendent Ron Reaves would ensure success I realize we have lost some credibility from around the area I do believe also that it will come he said Sanchez said the districts reputation had already improved and with respect and trust it would continue to improve I think weve already begun to improve the reputation and the reputation is what brought Dr Reaves here in the first said Sanchez Biggadike said the faltering reputation was not caused by students or teachers However he said that was in the past and the board needed to keep the focus on the children You move ahead and you learn from your he said 1 think the school board has learned from The candidates also addressed the issue of whether they wanted to chafige curriculum The candidates said they wanted to leave that question up to the superintendent and teachers All the candidates said they were not interested in micro managing had relevant budgeting experience would like to see improvement in scores on the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills test and thought volunteering at the campuses was an important part of being on the board The candidates also said they did not have a problem with the superintendent sitting on the dais or about giving him a threeyear contract 4 they will make final decision The current tax rate is cents per valuation which for a home would bring a bill of about Bennie presented them with a proposed budget of for the sheriffs department which is more than last years budget The proposal is highlighted this year by a request for 10 new deputies at a cost of each The proposal includes purchase of their cars uniforms bulletproof vests and weapons and if approved would bring the total number of deputies to 36 Bennie said Currently a minimum of four deputies and a maximum of nine share patrol of four districts on any shift inside the county Bennie said With about residents to protect deputies have had to prioritize calls for service Bennie said Deputies are instructed to leave the scene of a burglary to respond to reports of aggravated assault or other more severe situations Bennie said The problem is that some calls go without service for up to an hour and a half because of the lack of officers on duty Bennie said We need many more people than I asked Bennie said What were wanting to do is get enough people to answer the calls a lot Commissioners agreed with the need for morelaw enforcement personnel but said finding a way to pay for them would be a challenge in the next few weeks Weve just got to come up with a way to pay for what is commissioner Jack Dawson said I dont think the sheriffs request will face too many blockades but there will need to be some The county judge and auditor will review the department requests and
