Sow negative words.
..............1 pp ' —..... I*
reap negative responses
Never verbalize a negative. Avoid saying anything negative about your-selffyourifamily, your friends, your career — about anything. Why? Becfeuqb your words are like seeds. What y<IU sow, you reap. Talk negative, reap negative.
Research in molecular biology shows that our m”K* >s like a computer witlp a keyboard and a storage disk. Oui? senses represent our keyboard. Chemical pathways in the brain’s subconscious represent the brain’s storage disks. Anything that is typed into our keyboard will be stored for life. Our lips are part of our keyboard. Our lips program us. Speak negative and we program negative into our storage disk called the subconscious mind.
Warning! Anything you say will be stored in your subconscious mind. Anything that anyone hears you say will be stored in their subconscious mind. t Here’s pother warning. The storage disk, the subconscious mind, is unable to (distinguish the truth from a lie. The subconscious believes everything that is put into it. As they say in the computer world — garbage in, garbage out. Negative program, negative life.
Behavioral research indicates that at least 75 percent of our programs are negative* Shad Helmstetter Ph. D. estimates that the first 18 years of life we hear negatives 145,000 times. k<
Most of us can overcome our childhood negative programs. Our worst enemy is our own mouth. We talk negatively and our unconscious believes what we say.
How often have you heard yourself say these words?: “I’m not as smart as everyone else.’’ “I’m just unlucky.” “I can’t lose weight.” “I’m not getting any younger.” “I’m not as sharp as I used to be.” “I’ll never be a success.” “I never have enough time.” “I’m messy.” “I’m disorganized.” “Mondays depress me.”
Check yourself. Listen unconsciously to everything you say out loud. Does most of your self-talk build you up or put you down? Would you type the words you say about yourself intfrfrfrij computer

as life-long directives?
Any negative word can result in disaster. Think of it this way. Imagine getting on an airplane that contains the wrong program. Would you fly on that plane? Of course not. The program determines the plane’s altitude, speed, course, and destination. An airplane with the wrong program will crash. When you hear yourself speak negatively — stop. Get on the right course.
Why, then, do we program our brain with disastrous information? Because we don’t know any better. We don’t realize the power of our words to shape the destiny of our lives. We don’t understand that the words we speak determine our beliefs, fears, choices, actions and success.
Another reason we program our brains negatively is habit. As children we hear negative. When we watch television we see and hear negative. (The auditory and visual aspects of television make it a powerful programmer.) Our friends talk negatively. So we get in the habit. We begin to talk negatively. The more we hear ourselves talk, the more negatives we speak. We verbalize the negative and our lives become negative. The more negative our lives become, the more we speak negative.
Here’s the good news. We can reprogram the brain. The chemical pathways in our brain’s subconscious can be broken down in about 21 days. Replace negative words with positive words and the negative chemical pathways — the negative programs — will be destroyed in 21 (bys. Once the negative programs are destroyed, more positive things will begin to happen.
You will be on the flight path of success.

Bring an and to CISD bond oloction lawsuit
It’s time for a judge to make a final ruling on the Greene/Duggan lawsuit contesting the 1995 CISD bond election. There’ve been two judge rulings including a state ruling plus a vote recount, all in the pro-bond voters’ favor. There are no grounds for a retrial or rehearing.
Doesn’t any judge have enough gumption to make a final decision and cut out all this legal system redtape B.S. and get CISD back on track?! There is just too much legal foot-dragging and pussy footing around. This is a good example of a non-functioning legal system. No wonder crime is out of control!
At first I admired Greene and Duggan for standing up and confronting the board, but now that they have lost they only want to im***^ the CISD board president at our children’s expense.
The CISD board should sue Duggan/Greene for die $2,977,000 they have caused CISD to lose. Where is the CISD lawyer in all this?! Doesn’t he get paid to handle such CISD legal battles?
We voted our board into office. They are doing a dam good job. Our superintendent is striving to unite CISD into a family-style, safe learning environment. People are flocking into the district. Subdivisions are cropping up everywhere. Our kids are being packed into schools like sardines. All that is needed
is for some judge to stay out of the country club long enough to make a decision.

Some of the best softball around played by New Braunfels Girls' Softball Association teams
Saturday, March 30, the New Braunfels Girls’ Softball Association held their Fun Day/Opening Ceremonies for the girls’ softball season of 1996. A great big thanks to the Board of Directors who worked so hard to put together a fantastic day of ceremonies, games, and plain fun for the hundreds of young ladies who will take to the field for the next two months and more for a lot of fun.
Thirty-three managers, with one, two or three assistants, and a most important Team Mom each will be responsible for over 400 young girls ages seven to 14 and three T-Ball teams. If the practice sessions so far this season are any indication, the girls will end the season with the knowledge of the principles of playing softball, will learn rules of softball playing, but, most important, will learn that we can be competitive and still have fun without resorting to negativism against other players. We as managers, coaches, Team Moms and the entire board of the N.B.G.S.A. are committed to providing all these young ladies with
the best possible opportunity for them to learn how to play softball, with first priority being not winning games, but enjoying themselves and having fun. To this end we ask all parents to join us in congratulating any girl from any team when they make a good play and not criticize any player of any team for any reason. Remember IT’S THEIR SELF-ESTEEM AT RISK. When the game is over, we forget the score, shake hands, and leave with our friends from the other team.
A big thank you to all the businesses and individuals who sponsor our teams. With all the other youth activities in New Braunfels, it has always been a chore to get sponsors for the girls’ softball teams, esperii ly when the league keeps growing every year.
*ve ais deeply in debt to those who help us provide a rational sport the girls will be able to use when they reach high school.
If y ou would like to see some FANTASTIC girls’ softball playing, come out to any of the games being played on any of the girls’ softball fields any day of the week. Even if you don’t know the players, you can’t help but get a lump in your throat when you experience with us some of the greatest plays in softball.
See you at the field. Ernie Mendez Manager, Xtreme
Duggan claims “propaganda” aimed at her
Trustee says she’s trying to diffuse “negative attention” surrounding suit
By DENISE DZIUK
A Canyon Lake resident who believes the Comal Independent School District’s October bond election is invalid spoke to the board of trustees, and presented them with a packet of information at their meeting Thursday.
Included in that information were three actions she said would end the lawsuit and any appeal.
Lois Duggan spoke to the board Thursday during the audience participation portion of the meeting.
In her presentation, she stated the “purpose of (the packet and her presentation) was to inform each member.” Duggan pointed out several “statements of facts” to the board.
She said told the board both the
Texas Open Meeting Act and the Texas Open Records Act are being violated.
She said “propaganda” being distributed using tax money is intended “to inflame and impute harm” on the her and the other individual filing the suit.
She said the release also mentions a Findings of Fact.
She said she asked the district for a copy of the ruling, but the attorney for the district said he was unaware of such a ruling.
Duggan also stated she has filed a complaint against her opponent for the school board, Scott Watson, and Friends for Education with the Texas Ethics Commission.
The commission has not decided whether to dismiss the complaint or proceed with it.
Duggan made an additional allegation against the board regarding the purchase of land.
“This is being submitted in the public’s interest,” said Duggan. “I am not
This is being submitted in the public’s interest. I am not your enemy.’
— Lois Duggan Regarding proposals she gave board to end lawsuit
Duggan then told the board there were three things that could be done.
First, she said the district could seek a declaratory judgment and let the court decide if the bond election was valid.
Second, board president Jim Middleton could have a motion filed declaring the Tax Bond Election void.
Finally, she said the school board could issue time warrants and/or certificates of obligation without putting it on a ballot.
Following her statements, Duggan left the meeting.
Watson said he believes the presentation to the board was an attempt to “diffuse” the negative attention she is receiving.
He said the district is pointing out how much her suit is costing taxpayers and she is trying to turn the attention away from her.
“I think it’s purely Lois trying to diffuse the negative attention and divert it away from her and back onto the district,” said Watson.

Fellow Citizens of Comal County:
I decided to seek the office of Sheriff of Comal County because we had a persistent crime problem that was not going away. A problem that tore at the very fabric of the way we live our lives. All you have to do is pick up the local paper, any day, and see this problem. A problem I believe I can, by going back to law enforcement basics, solve.
Tourism is the number one industry in this county and we must be careful in our responses to problems that relate to it. It is a difficult balance trying to control the crime problems that affect our tourism, while also trying to control the problems it creates. I believe that we currently have perfectly good laws on the books to deal with both sides of this problem, we need only to administer them. You cannot regulate or legislate a problem out of existence, only hard work solves problems.
Honesty and integrity are the two most important qualities a law enforcement officer can possess. I have focused my campaign on one issqe: our crime problem. I have shown the extent of this problem with statistics provided by the Comal County Sheriff’s office and published as public information by by the State of Texas. I have given you my qualifications , without embellishment or misrepresentation. I trust the citizens of this county to examine the documented facts and vote accordingly. Please vote for me, Bob Holder, for Comal County Sheriff during the April 9th* Republican runoff.
