Firefighters' work merits donations
The Bulverde and Spring Branch volunteer fire departments have received $150 each as a “thank-you” for the work they did at a recent fire on the property of Clarence J. Bitter.
Funds came from the Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Company, which pays fire departments this amount when they work fires in rural areas involving property the bureau insures.

DEAR ABBY: Thank you for urging parents to read to their very young children in an effort to inspire them to learn to read for themselves.
However, one of the reasons some parents don’t read to their children is because they themselves can’t read! Today in the United States Blere are over 23 million adults who can’t read well enough to read a chidren’s bedtime story; to read the notes that come from school; to read a medicine label. These illiterate adults must be taught to read.
Literary Volunteers of America, Inc. (LVA) trains volunteers to teach adults and teen who can’t read well enough to function. There are over 160 programs in 29 states. Between 1981 and 1983,12,000 LVA volunteers taught over 17,000 students to read. Both numbers continue to grow, and we hope that one day we will be a totally literate society.
Please pass this along.
JONATHON McKALLIP DIRECTOR OF FIELD SERVICES, LVA
DEAR MR. McKALLIP: Thank you for writing. I learned something today.
I checked out LVA and I learned that it was founded in Syracuse, N.Y., in 1962 to combat the problem of illiteracy In the United States and Canada. Its primary premise is that well-trained volunteers can be effective tutors of adults. The organization has been enormously successful, and continues to grow.
For more information, please send a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to: LVA, 404 Oak St., Syracuse, N.Y. 13203.
DEAR ABBY: Here’s some good news for you. Tell the librarian in Winter Park, Fla., who wrote to say that children don’t read anymore, that here in Olympia. Wash., the public library is so popular that you can hardly get into the parking lot.
It might be because of the many services offered.
it might be the rocking chairs, it might even be the plants or the stone sculpture of otters that the children “pet” — but something in that place is outdrawing the TV and video games!
I’m not sure whether the community is to be congratulated for the library or the library is to be congratulated for the community, but it’s a wonderful spectacle, and I offer it as an encouragement to other towns that want their children to read. It can still happen.
REBECCA WRIGHT, OLYMPIA, WASH.
DEAR REBECCA: That’s the good news. The bad news Is that your town’s library will probably be hearing from hundreds of librarians asking for details.
DEAR ABBY: Our son is in his late 20s. (ITI call him “Lester.”) He’s a fine young man and has always known that he was adopted, but he never speaks of it. We asked him a few years ago if he had any desire to know his biological parents and he said, “No. You are the only parents I want to know, and as far as I’m concerned, I have no other."
Lester is being married soon to a young woman whom he has never told that he was adopted. He asked us not to mention it to her because he would prefer that she didn’t know.
My wife and I feel that laster should tell his fiancee, particularly because he grew up in a small town not far from here where everyone there knows that we adopted him when he was a small child.
Many of our friends and relatives from that small town come here to shop and visit, and I worry that lister's fiancee might hear the truth from someone else.
What should we do?
DEAR FATHER: Try to persuade your son to tell his fiancee that he was adopted and tell him < as you told me I why he should do it soon.
lf he refuses, he will have to handle the consequences.
Locals attend TSTA meeting
Annette Richey, Marilyn Kolacek and Ellen Brown were among the 984 elected delegates to the 104th annual Texas State Teachers association convention in Fort Worth April 7-9.
Gov. Mark White gave the keynote address to the general assembly by asking "What kind of schools do you want?" Adequate funding is of primary importance to insure quality education in our schools Because of reduced revenue estimates, the legislators need to be reminded of the state's committment to students and teachers. Gov. White is still committed to significantly increasing teacher’s salaries as a top priority in his administration.
TSTA has met with the governor and he has stated that he does not intend to cause local rollback elections — even if it means putting more money into educational programs.
U.S. Senatorial candidate Bob Krueger ilso made a brief statement to the delegates and programs were presented on national issues that impact Texas schools such as tuition tax credits, federal funding of schools, social security and the teacher’s retirement system.
A 1950’s dance was held Friday evening to raise funds for politcal action. Annette Richey was the state winner of the hula-hoop contest.
