important to New Braunfels put on one of j officials continue to tally up the best com the economic benefits of this muntty parties years event But no matter imaginable j how the final dollars and cents Three cheers add up when compared to for the effort I otner years the city is none the worst for the celebration of sausage and tradition Some would argue the festival has lost some of the glimmer it enjoyed in the booming years of the late 80s Maybe it has Or perhaps there are just more businesses and lodging establishments splitting up the influx of business Still it would be hard to quibble about the over all impact of Wurstfest an estimated million boost to the local economy Imagine trying to polka through November without that influx of revenue That would sure be a harsh gulp of sobering reality So raise your stein to the men and women who once again put on one of the best community parties imaginable It was great fun Three cheers for the effort TODAY IN HISTORY By The

Braunfels athletic director has received criticism for pregame events at the New BraunfelsGanyon game This criticism has been based on misinterpretation inaccurate per ceptions and a failure to get the facts before reaching a At the beginning of the season the team decide the order of events at Unicorn Stadium The play ers chose to hold the public prayer with the opposing team at the end of each game They made this decision for several reasons one of which was to show that win or lose the Unicorns had the class and sportsmanship to be thankful for a wellplayed competition and to wish every onea safe trip home This order of events has been followed at every home game It has never created a problem has not offended any other team and was certainly not intended to offend the Canyon athletes or fans It is customary for the host team to direct the order of events at any sporting competition Because some spectators reached the conclu sion that the Unicorns and their coaching staff were snubbing the Cougars Further Coach Rhoades has been unjustly criticized and the Uni corns as a whole have been the unwarranted vic tims of disparaging remarks Prayer is an important part of the Unicorns football program and Unicorns elect to offer a prayer of thanks after each game Any person should be sure they have all the facts before they reach conclusions and retaliate in ways that can be harmful or hurtful Kay Rust Neiv Braunfels We played the game with class and showed respect for others There have recently been many accusations against New Braunfels about the New Braunfels vs Canyon game Our athletic groups have been called sore win ners and other names of that sort We have been blamed for unruly and unpolite conduct What about when the students attending the game on Canyons side were booing during the New Braunfels mataWhat about when our football field got spray painted or when they yelled out obscene things as our cheerleaders where being announced Was that very polite Even our spirit groups were accused of being rude but was it rudd when our entire Monoceras Mystics and cheerleaders applauded the Canyon football teamas they walked off the field from a hardfought game 1 think that on behalf of my school I speak for us all when I say that we played that game with class When a player was down we Were quiet When their band and dance team performed we applauded When the teams prayed at the end of the game we all prayed And for all of those people who were from out of town that called us names maybe you should have viewed thegameiwithan open mind and unclosed eyes It was clear that New Braunfels did mtfch in their power to have respect The theme for our pep rally had been full which I believe we had Lauren Dunham New Braunfels Visitors should know honor a home teams traditions I personally attended the game Oct 31 and frankly I am disappointed in some peoples views of the outcome The bottom line is the winner was determined on the Scoreboard after 48 minutes of a hard fought struggle between two excellent teams In a contest there will always be a winner and a loser The winner reaps the spoils of victory and the loser goes home with thoughts of next Prayer before or after the game or parents cheer leaders bands do not determine the winner Only the coaches and players on the field If you really respect the game and enjoyed a great one Oct 31 smile and have pleasant memo ries If not just make sure to be ready next and that includes knowing home team traditions and home team field decorum Visitors even from across town are still visitors NBHS Class ofl976 NeivBrawifels United Government PRESIDENT George W Bush 1600 Pennsylvania NW 20660 KAV BAILEY HUTCHISON Russell Senate Office Building ftoom Washington 20610 202
