New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 31, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Fanning old flame can create fire that burns Flag From Page 1 HeratdZettung g Sunday August O 5A Dear Abby f read with great interest your answer to Concerned in who was worried that her husband might rekindle a romance with his former high school flame and later his a woman they both see socially from time to time You advised her that such a romance would be highly unlikely since Cohcerned has had 40 years of a good marriage and so has the old flame Abby your conclusion certainly sounds reasonable but it is incorrect I have spent the last four years researching more than couples worldwide who have reunited after many years apart I have learned that these reunions are quite common and the flame can reignite at any point One couple had been separated for 63 years As I reported in my book Lost and Found Lovers Facts and Fantasies of Rekindled overall 72 percent of these renewed loves stay together and the percentage was even higher if they had been first loves These are very stable joyous and sexually passionate relationships the second time around However you should inform your readers that more than 30 percent of these couples began their reunions while one or both of them was married to someone else These lovers often tell me sometimes between sobs that they are in good marriages and love their spouses they never intended to find themselves in affairs The lost lovers met again innocently often with their spouses present and none was prepared for the old feelings to return full force They felt torn between their marriages and their lost and found lovers but not for long My advice based on my years of study is to encourage single divorced or widowed individuals to look for sweethearts or old friends from their past but to strongly discourage married people from doing so If Concerned in Florida invites her husbands old flame to his surprise birthday party she might get baldly burned Nancy Kaiish i Professor of Psychology Calif State University Sacramento Calif Forest service issues fire danger warning for 26 Texas counties LAMPASAS The Texas Forest Service will continue an Extreme Fire Danger Warning for a 26 county area of the Texas Hill Country Comal County is included in the warning Seven counties have issued a burning ban suspending all outside burning of any kind These counties include Burnet Comanche Lampasas Llano Mason Mills and San Saba The upcoming Labor Day weekend which will see heavy recreational activity within the Hill Country area have firefighters on standby Continued dry weather hot temperatures and low humidities continue to plague the area Since August 16 the Hill Country has experienced 93 wildfires that have burned acres The largest three fires have occurred in KimbleMenard Counties San Saba County 800 acres and Llano County 600 Most of the wildfires have been mancaused The main causes being improper disposal of smoking materials debris and trash burning and catalytic converters on cars touching dry grass or weeds The Texas Forest Service and central Texas fire officials are asking that no outside burning be done until appreciable rainfall is received The fire danger will not decrease until rainfall lowers the moisture content of die vegetation and more counties will be added to the area as the dry conditions continue The area surrounding the Hill Country is in a high fire danger warning The Texas Forest Service is asking everyone to use extreme caution when doing any outdoor cooking and urging that no outside debris or trash burning be done until the fire danger is reduced Dear Dr Kaiish Thank you for informing me of what has to have been a fascinating study and for wanting to warn my readers In the light of your research I would like to formally retract my advice to Concerned in In the future I will warn my married readers that old flames are potentially combustible They can ignite without warning and leave a marriage in ashes So dont play with fire Dear Abby May I add my story to your acts of kindness Two years ago a friend who now lives in Israel came to visit me with her family I had known her from my hometown back in Orleans France One evening while I was surrounded by my grown children and my husband she told me a story that I had never heard She said my father Leon now deceased had saved the lives of her entire family seven people during World War II by helping them hide their Jewish identity in order to avoid being killed by the invading Nazis After hearing this story I realized that my father who was short on stature had been a giant among men and was truly one of those unsung heroes who never tell their stories I thank God for the opportunity to have known such a person in my lifetime Betie Newton Glendale Ariz Dear Mrs Newton And I thank God that were living in a country where people will never encounter the horror that was faced by your friend and your father He was a man of great courage and conviction Thank you for writing Commission chairman Carol Belton refused to comment and said he was not aware that the proposal was sent back to the commission Ill have to wait until I hear from 1 Belton said I found out its not safe to make comments to Christina Aguilar Friar a local writer and member of the Greater Hispanic Chamber of Commerce suggested several revisions to the proposed design in a letter this past week to the commission and the city manager They include An artist rendering of the old Tax rate Spanish mission with ruins visible next to Comal Springs in Landa Park A rendering of an old Mexican cowboy or vaquero A rendering of a Mexican scout or wagon driver with German immigrants being carried to New Braunfels She said she appreciated the German heritage of the city but wanted to include the Mexican heritage in the proposed design Just getting right down to it Mexicans have been around she said Were an indigenous people By putting the flag the way they have it they were polarizing the community I dont think they wanted to do that at Whats on the proposed flag The Historic Landmark Commission is expected to reconsider its flag proposal at its Sept 11 meeting For more information call 6082100 The proposed flag includes A seal of the 14 German noblemen whose purchase of a land grant several hundred miles northwest of New Braunfels led to Prince Carl Solms purchasing land that became the city of New Braunfels The German words Verein zum Schutz deutscher Einwandrer in or Society for the Protection of German immigrants in A lone star on the seal which stands for the Republic of Texas A bundle of arrows symbolizing the presence of Native Americans Friar cited the old mission in Landa Park and numerous Mexican families who lived here before the German immigration as reasons the official city flag should include symbols of Hispanic heritage From Page 1 Wednesday Board president Dan Krueger who voted against the rate said a 9cent tax rate increase would fund the budget However he said he wanted to approve a rate that was a penny or two higher Adding a couple of cents to the rate now would give the administration time to make sure all requests were included in the budget and there were no shortfalls he said I wanted to leave us some room for margin in case something came Krueger said However Krueger said he could accept that the board majority did not agree with him and he would make the budget work Even if the rate of is approved the district will have to use about from the million fund balance to balance the budget The board will conduct a tax rate hearing on Sept 15 and consideration of a tax rate is scheduled Sept 24 Diana From Page 1A The highspeed pursuit
