new plan represents the voice of tion or if the forces opposed to Medicare ih its traditional form have just found another way to undermine the system As we have pointed out before putting a lid on how much will be spent on drug benefits without serious cost control measures will mean later on that the system could be declared insolvent and forced to cut benefits or raise very popular choices And while conservatives go on and on about letting the market place have a bigger role in determining costs seniors are skep tical Studies show that an unregulated market would make drugs more expensive in some areas of the country and less expensive in others mak ing where you live an important criteria for get ting health care at a reasonable price Our senior citizens need a comprehensive

Williams in the HeraldZeitung and I believe the majori ty of them have been unfair I did not attend the sophomore parents meet ing because I did not receive any notification of it the mails However I did read the article in the paper about the first meeting Mr Williams had with parents I found the article to be very negatively slanted against the principal and his policies If I were him I would have tak en it personally and been on the defensive at the next meeting j Academics should be first in our school extracurricular activities As parents we should support Mr Williams attempts to strengthen our students brains and our schools academic reputation Mr Doug Toney also raised some good points in his editorial I spoke with friends who attended the meeting and agree that the behav ior of several of the parents at the meetings was shameful Again no wonder Mr Williams is on the defensive Personal attacks have no place in public meetings As the late Fred Astaire observed The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing As for the penitentiary atmosphere at the high school that is rubbish Yes the rules are tougher this year Construction issues caused the rules to be looser for the last couple of years So now our students have to be on time stay at their desks during class time not act irresponsi bly when changing classes and follow the rules of the school as set down by the boss princi pal Hmm Any job Ive ever had required me LaurieTiemanisaNew Braunfels resident to do these things Im sure the band direc tors ROTC officers foot ball coaches would tell you that success required discipline Now all of our students can benefit from this type of discipline As for Mr asser tion that Mr Williams should ask us to give him another chance I again sayrubbish We should ask himto chance I also think that any teacher who complains of the schools policies to students should be reprimanded The only thing Ive heard from teacher friends is about how nice it is to have the halls empty during class time and all of the students present so that they can learn without distraction As for if its not broken dont fox only three students from our large high school received National Merit recognition this year Something needs to be done to help our students do better academically I encourage all parents who support Mr Williams efforts to improve our school to tell him so Hearing nothing but criticism all of the time is not good for anyone I also encourage parents who have suggestions or complaints to voice them respectfully and properly We need to work together to make NBHS a better place for our students United Government PRESIDENT George W Bush 1600 Pennsylvania NW C 20600 KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON Russell Senate Office Building Room 284

an inspiring political speech was to recount the story of his son being hit by a car At the 1996 convention Gore told a tearjerker about his sisters long painful death from lung cancer It got to the point that Gores family members had to fear any more runs for higher office In the current campaign Gephardt has taken to spinning out a long pitiful tale of his sons neardeath three decades ago If a lingering family medical tragedy is the main qualification for becoming a Democratic presidential candidate whats Michael Schiavo waiting for At dozens of campaign stops Mrs Gephardt weeps anew as her husband tells the same gutwrenching story over and over again The relevance of his sons illness to Gephardts run for the presh dency is this It inspired Gephardts cajl for national health insurance
