   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 9, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas                                HeraldZeitung g Tuesday September G 3 Man who needs his space wont make room for his kids Dear Abby In all the 33 years I have read your column nothing has appalled me like the letter from the livein who described herself as No She said He left his wife and two kids because the responsibility gave him no time for What idiocy What kind of woman would want a man who shows no responsibility for his own children but expects him to parent her kids These people are sick sick sick You were much too easy on them with your answer Stand tough Abby Mary Egan in Dallas Dear Mary I advised the woman Waterpark not to try to defend her position which was indefensible I do not flog those who write me even when I disapprove of their actions Mine is an advice column not a whipping post Believe me my readers got the message The letters are still flying in Read on Dear Abby I have never been as angry as I was after I read the letter signed Almost No She said Nineand16yearolds dont need a lot of These are critical ages in their lives and being ignored by their father because he needs more time to himself is clearly child abuse When people ask why the kids arent around Almost No 2 and her boyfriend should tell the truth We want them around only when we have nothing else better to Thats the message hes sending out to his kids If his children are too much of a responsibility he should have kept his pants on These two deserve each other Mom Who Loves To Be With Her Son Dear Abby Indefensible is the word The next time people ask why Matt Father of the doesnt see his own children they should be told he simply doesnt give a damn And when they ask Almost No 2 how she could defend him she should tell them because shes stiH After she actually becomes No 2 and Matt gives her the I need my space story Ill be looking for a letter in your column signed What Was I Thinking or perhaps simply Clifford Williams Maiden Mass Dear Abby What a wonderful couple these two make Shes insensitive while he is simply a cad My brother and I both now in our 20s were fortunate to have an understanding stepmother who realized that our relationship with our father shouldnt change regardless of the marital status between our parents Our father continues to spend a lot of time with us We are now professional responsible adults who were fortunate to receive all the love and support both parents could give I hate to think that Marts kids will never get that support from their father Child support is not an expression of love its an obligation and believe me those kids are intelligent enough to know the difference Thankful in Cape Coral Fla From Page 1 Island officials had estimated the water park would create 150 jobs mostly part time and produce an economic impact of up to million The South Padre Island board of aldermen unanimously approved an incentives package to bring Schlitterbahn to the island in April The incentives package included a combination of city state and economic development grants and loans totaling million The package included a series of state and local tax rebates adding up to about annually In July the board of aldermen approved changes in a zoning ordinance that would have allowed the waterpark to be built on the 14 acre site Henry said he had been working for two years to get a waterpark built on the island Besides the 14acre tract Schlitterbahn had been looking at two other sites on South Padre Island Henry said those two other sites were not being considered because they were not feasible Right now we havent found a site which has accessibility and is both economically viable and Henry said He said it would be hard to get environmental and construction permits for the other two sites on the island Even though he was rebuffed on his first attempt to build a waterpark on the island Henry said he would not completely shut the door on building a waterpark in the area We want to thank the mayor Ed the aldermen and 90 percent plus of the businesses and local Valley people who supported he said We hope to return to the Valley in the future to complete this project and build South Padre Island city manager New Braunfels City Council State OKs RR crossing arms for San Antonio Street Downtown New Braunfels will be one
