TLC program chance to begin college early
SEGUIN — Texas Lutheran College will again offer its Dual Participation Program during the 1991 fall semester at the Seguin campus and at Randolph Air Force Base.
The Dual Participation Program provides the opportunity for academically qualified senior students to participate in a program stressing access to and retention in higher education. A major goal of the program is to acquaint students with post-secondary education, provide exploration for identifying their potential success in college, and to assist with the transition. Senior students are able to complete their high school program and, at the same time, participate in college courses. Students who are often academically and socially ready are assisted in the transition from high school to college.
Students enrolled in this spring’s program include Kelly M. Angers, Mary J. Barrett, Elizabeth A. Edelen, Joshua M. Gordon, Jennifer L. Lehmann, Cuong V. Lu, Ney Soto, and Irene M. Villafranca all of Seguin; and Jessica E. Poling and Jeremy Rust of New Braunfels.
Program participants must have a recommendation from their counselor or principal, rank in the top quarter of their senior class, and have a score of at least IOO on the Pre-Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) or 1000 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), or 24 on the American College Test (ACT). A class rank in the upper IO percent may be substituted for the test score requirement. Those wishing to take two college courses must meet these requirements plus rank in the top IO percent of their senior class. Students qualifying for the Dual Participation Program may receive a tuition assistance scholarship equal to approximately 60 percent of tuition. For the 1991-92 academic year, this adjusted tuition cost will be SKX) per semester hour plus a $25 Student Activity and Parking Fee. At the Randolph Air Force Base Center, tuition is $89 per credit hour.
College preparatory work should include the following as a minimum: three years of courses in English; two units of mathematics; two natural science units, one with a laboratory; and two units of social science.
Students complete a formal application for admission to the program which is then taken to the student’s high school counselor for approval and recommendation. The approved application and a copy of the student’s high school record will then be forwarded to the Admissions Office at the college for final approval in the Dual Participation Program.
Courses for this program arc chosen from the course schedule of Texas Lutheran. Assistance with course selection is available by contacting Josie Herrera in the Admissions Office at 372-8050.
Application deadline for the fall semester is Aug. 16.

Dear Fellow Citizens,
I have been asked for my position on the issue of burning toxic waste in our community. Because of the importance of this issue, and so everyone will know where I stand, the following is my direct response on this issue.
First, let me say that the whole issue of our environment has the highest priority to me. Without the protection and well being of our air, water and other natural resources, our community cannot continue to have the quality of life we have grown to know and come to expect.
As a city councilman of New Braunfels, I have j researched the issue of Lafarge/Systech, and moderated a town meeting so that you could have the opportunity to express your concerns. I then proceeded to work with other I local, stale and federal officials on this issue. I believe this I work is an asset of mine that cannot be overlooked.
I am a member of the most important environmental group which is made up of all the citizens of New Braunfels. We each have a responsibility to protect our environment and to enhance our natural beauty. Let me conclude by saying that I have not and will not, be controlled by any special interest groups, for I represent the people of District 4 and our city. It is for them and because of them that I am able to serve.

importance of teaching and let me know that I have been on the right path, both in my choice of profession and in the way I have followed it,” said Dr. Jean-Pierre Metereau, assistant professor of English and department chairperson and winner of the 1989-90 Sears-Roebuck Foundation Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award at Texas Lutheran.

SENIORS: Where are your pledges? Where are your friends’ pledges?
Only YOU and your professional, business and foundation friends can make our new Seniors’ Center a reality.
Money & Pledges Needed NOW!
If you’re gonna "let George do it", your name is George. In spite of $68,081.00 already contributed, including pledges received previous to the current drive by senior citizens, the mustard won't be cut until several hundred more individual senior citizens contribute and pledge dollars to the non-profit Senior Citizens’ Foundation of Comal County, Inc.
A few businesses and a few professional people recognize the importance of the new Seniors' Center of Comal County. We're aware that they get hit often by worthy cause solicitations. Those who have contributed to the new Seniors’ Center sincerely believe in us and also are perceptive about the "more than 50% seniors" in the Comal County unique customer and client base. We’re a retirement area-not just a white water rafting puce. We make Wurstfest and a lot of other busy and profitable events possible by manning a lot of the duty posts just for the love of our community.
More than 11,000 man and lady hours already have been contributed in hammering, sawing, wiring, piping, painting and fund raising by retired seniors and others whose ages range all the way from 18 to 89. Come and see for yourself. Ask Les Thom, Bob Dingeldein or Supervising Architectural Engineer Charlie Cook to show you.
And even though many local contractors,
materials and equipment suppliers and service firms have discounted and/or even contributed their labor and materials, what they can furnish at low or no profit is limited if they want to stay in business. We love them for what they've done and are doing, but we can’t finish within a reasonable time frame without using more of their services to complement the free man hours of our seniors. We need more money to hire them and to buy more materials. As our headline says, "Money and Pledges Needed NOW!”
We haven’t overlooked local, county, regional, state and federal grants. We're working on them. We've had some success, thank goodness. But you know about the squeeze on government budgets. It ain’t easy for them either.
We haven't forgotten foundation!. We’re working on them, too. Are you friends with a foundation that "invests” in worthy causes with forever benefits? Can you put in a good word for
us and help us with the paperwork?
Did you retire from a company that will match your contribution to the non-profit Senior Cozens’ Foundation of Comal County, Inc.? If so, can we talk?
In the successful end, we’ll make our goal of $300,000 only by a combination of conunbuuons from every organization and every person. We can detail the benefits of these investments in an outstanding senior facility. We outline these benefits in a brochure we TI be pleased to send to you. We also show these benefits rn a personally conducted tour of the partially-completed new Center. We’ll furnish you either the brochure or the tour-or both. Call us at 629-1161.
And all of you seniors who have checkbooks-both ladies and gentlemen-rtmember, if it’s going to be done, you gotta do it. Every contribution in any amount will be thankfully accepted. The sooner the quicker.
Pledge payments are tax-deductible under applicable rules of the IRS. They may be paid in up to 12 quarterly installments. Use the form below or phone 629-1161 for a detailed brochure and pledge form.
We will soon publish a list of seniors and seniors’ friends who have contributed to date. You will want to be on that list and on the permanent list at the new Comal County Seniors’ Center.
To the Senior Citizens ’ Foundation of Comal County: To help provide the money needed tor establishment OI the new Seniors’ Center of Comal County in New Braunfels, Texas, and to enhance the quality of life for all residents of Comal County, I/We pledge the following amount of money to be paid in the manner indicated
