New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 5, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas call from a fri HeraldZeitung Q Friday September g 5A Dear Abby Please remind your readers that if and when an accident or disease transforms an active involved person into a housebound sedentary victim of ill fate that person desperately needs the warmth and caring of friends and neighbors Even the smallest kind deed can turn moments of sorrow into meaningful moments of joy On behalf of the many tens of thousands of individuals in our country who are involuntarily housebound I would like to plead with those friends and neighbors Communicate By phone through a brief note a dropin visit if only for a few minutes My beloved wife has been housebound for a little over two years Because of her illness she requires oxygen 24 hours a day For her a walk to the back yard is an adventure When shes able to take one we always take along the portable phone in case someone calls It would be a tragedy to miss a call When that phone rings and a familiar voice says her conscious struggle for breath seems to almost miraculously disappear 1 hope 1 have made my point Be a friend to a friend or relative in need Abby please do not use my name or location but do share this message with your readers Concerned Husband Education 1111 bear Concerned Husband Your message iswell worth passing along When someone is stricken with a serious illness its common for friends and family to experience feelings of guilt or to feel at a loss for words Unable to cope with the discomfort they react by distancing themselves at a time when their support is needed most In situations like this act with the same generosity and compassion you would wish from others if the situation were reversed Rather than dwell on the illness keep uppermost in mind that the sufferer is still your friend with the same interests sense of humor and values Focusing on that should make communication easier The attention is almost always welcome Coping with chronic Illness is difficult enough without having to endure Isolation too Reach out youll be glad you did Dear Abby This letter is to Beths grandparents the ones who stopped coming to her sports games because she wasnt a star I began playing soccer and basketball when I was 8 I hardly knew the rules and was very clumsy Even though I wasnt great I loved to play It was a real treat for me to see my grandparents at the games I always wanted to do my very best when they were there but even if I had blown the winning point I always could walk away knowing that they loved me To them it didnt matter if we lost They were proud to come and watch and I was proud to play for them Now I am about to start my second season of varsity soccer and have just finished a summer season of varsity basketball I am going to be a If I had given up because I wasnt good back as an 8yearold my love for the game would be gone and I would not have the joy of playing No one is at their full potential at that age Please tell those grandparents to lighten up and encourage their grandchild to do her best without the pressure to win They should be proud that shes out there working hard in sports that have not always been available to us girls Good luck Beth Never give up your dreams Blessed Wilh Grandparents Who Arc A Treasure Portland Ore Dear Blessed Your message

expected Officials are seeking approval for construction of facilities that would provide about more prison beds Thats in addition to the bed expansion approved two months ago Officials said Thursday that despite a building boom that tripled the size of the states prison system in five years they still need more cell space The pressing need for additional prison space means that million of the total sought should go for fasttrack construction of 19 trusty dormitories that could be completed in as little as 10 months We need the additional beds sooner than earlier projections had indicated we said Wayne Scott executive director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice The shortage of prison beds is caused by a combination of dropping parole rates during the past three years and the fact that more parolees are being sent back to prison for parole violations This came at a time when Texas judges are sending more felons to prison officials said Bottom line Were gaining 1994 Dodge
