New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 3, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas g Sunday August 3 1997 p Q Couple confronts stark reality during weekend at nudist club A I I1 Dear Abby I had to laugh at the letter from Happily Surprised in concerning her visit to a nudist club but she didnt explain the nonreaction of the members Imagine a nudist club and male and female supermodels parading around enticing all That was my husbands fantasy so I let myself be talked into a visit My first sight as we drove down to the clubs office was a man at least 80 years of age jogging down a trail stark naked except for his running shoes It was so unexpected that 1 burst intpfits of hysterical laughter Much to my husbands displeasure the giggles continued while we were in the office registering City business leaders blame sales tax rebate drop on wet weather By ABE LEVY Staff Writer City and business leaders said to blame it on the weather when looking at this months sales tax rebates Sales tax rebates for the month of July show a decline of percent compared to last year The monthly total about reflects purchases made in May when rainfall was plentiful in the area There was a lot of rain A lot of businesses suffered even the citys park system It hurt said Sharon Day city finance director Bill Cone president of Norwest Bank in New Braunfels said the decline was expected but not significant when looking at several years These are really small changes If you look over the last five to six years weve had some significant Cone said With two years in a row of waterrelated problems we have to expect a little bit of Still Day said the citys sales receipts are almost 2 percent higher for the year to date when compared 10 last year That was the result of businesses working together she said such as outfitters on the Guadalupe River whose flow has been too high to tube They worked out deals to shuttle their patrons to the lowerflowing Comal River this summer Michael Meek president of the 1 New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce said the sales tax depended on an active tourism promotions campaign that brings in visitors to spend money locally The low total for July should be compared across several years he said before coming to conclusions about the local economy He said other cities along the Interstate 35 corridor such as Seguin and Austin also experienced a lower rebate this month Thats just one month and you cant draw too many conclusions from Meek said You have to look at them over a long Texas Comptroller John Sharp delivered a total of million in monthly sales tax payments to Texas cities and 117 counties The payments to date represent an overall percent increase of the same period last year Sharp reported HAVE QUESTIONS Call KRAFT MOBILETEl and we

fantasy Its made up of appendix and gall bladder scars stretch marks beer bellies and everything from grossly underweight to grossly overweight We discovered that sitting clothed while a hundred others are nude brings out the same feelings youd have wearing jeans and a T shirt to a formal blacktie affair You realize you stand out like a sore thumb and become very uncomfortable Within a few hours we removed our suits Not once during the entire weekend did I see any reaction to the nudity of others No one seemed interested in the bodies of others at all which is the nonreaction your reader mentioned You begin to nude is just that nude Nothing is left to the imagination theres no interest in even looking I understood this but my husband seemed terribly disappointed A word of caution however Areas of the body that have never seen sunshine must be heavily protected with sunscreen I couldnt wear a bra for a week because of the sunburn My macho husband was in agony for two weeks because he was too tough to heed my suggestion about using sun lotion on his buttocks and frontal area lie never mentioned visiting a nudist club again Still Laughing in Florida Dear Laughing Your letter proves that after sunscreen the second most essential iterif to take to a nudist colony isa sense of humor My dermatologist friends tejl me that Old Sol is the enemy of a lasting beautiful
