Managing Editor Gerard MacCrossan Editor and Publisher DougToney Circulation Director Jeff Fowler Advertising/Marketing Director Chuck Evers Business Manager Valerie Shields News Editor Kerl Kirby Letter to the Editor Memorial Day event was success because of community support lb the editor: When we receive the results we desire to make an event successful we must take into consideration individuals who contributed to the success. First of all, the residents of New Braunfels and the surrounding areas that numbered more than 200 that attended the Memorial Day ceremony at the Guadalupe Valley Memorial Park.

JoanP.Helmke, Secretary ALA Unit 35, New Braunfels Oak Run stories were helpful Tb the editor: The Herald-Zeitung has provided a great service to the residents of Oak Run and to the community at large by publishing these stories on the attempt to close off the walkway connecting the subdivision and Oak Run School. The planning and zoning commission only provided notice to the immediate property owners, and the alleged "neighborhood association" refused to get involved for the simple reason that it is controlled by the developer (who seeks to close off the walkway). Many of us attempted to spread the word on our own, but we really appreciate the newspaper's assistance. Steve Moninger, New Braunfels Symphony's New Braunfels performance was delightful We were totally entertained during the performance of the San Antonio Symphony in their Sounds of Summer program at the Civic Center on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. The evening was a delight. The talented musicians presented lively music that included patriotic favorites, spirited marches, and many familiar, toe tapping selections. It kept a smile on the face. Of equal delight was the orchestra's conductor, David In-Jae Cho. What a great conductor and vivacious audience pleaser. Our smiles turned to laughter as he pleasantly joked with the audience and had us participating in various ways throughout the performance. This was their third annual free performance in New Braunfels. What a great opportunity to hear another quality musical event right here in town. We are already looking forward to next year.

To this point most of their history has been passed on by word of mouth, but as family members moved away from New Braunfels, it became harder and harder to Around the Museum and Archives By Myra Lee Adams Goff [email protected] keep up with them. Dago is computer wise and is working with several family search programs. So far, the search goes only to Teo's grandparents, Senaido Lopez and Eusebia Quiroz. From San Luis Potosi, Mexico, their family came through Laredo in the late 1800s.They heard about the Walter Zipp farm in Schumannsville from friends and moved there in1906. Zipp's primary crops were cotton and corn. The Lopez, Quiroz, Vasquez, Castillo and Gonzales families, who still have descendants in NB, all lived and worked on the Zipp property. They were sharecroppers and migrant workers. A sharecropper is one who plows the fields, plants the crops and then shares the profit with the owner. On the other hand, a migrant worker moves with the crops. Benita, Teo's mother, was born on the Zipp farm in 1906. In 1911,5-year-old Santos Rodriguez and his family arrived on the farm and Benita and Santos were destined to become man and wife. In 1922, they were married at Sts.
