What a bunch of worthless numbers
The Sunday, July 30, 1995 edition of the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung, published “The winning numbers, Lotto Texas,” (no date), to be “4,9,27, 31, 33,45 - est $10 million jackpot-Tcxas Lottery.” Right away I was suspicious.
I decided to consult the San Antonio Express News (sic) to confirm my winning numbers.
On page 2 A of the Sunday, July 30, 1995 edition of the San Antonio Express-News, it advised, “Saturday’s winning numbers, Jackpot $45 million, 1-9-14-18-24-46” and it went on to advise, “For information, call 1-800-375-6886.” A very nice recorded femme (sic) voice advised me I was listening to the Texas Lottery Commission and stated their business hours, but suggested if I wanted information about lottery results, I should telephone
the number printed on my lottery ticket.
I decided I might as well waste 28 cents and try that. The ticket has printed near the top, the following message. “Results, 1-900-988-0889, 28 cents a min - $2 max, est Lotto jackpot $45 mil.” I tried calling that number TWICE and each time was advised by the recorded Southwestern Bell operator that they could not complete my call as dialed. (Actually I pushed buttons and didn’t dial.)
Did you ever hear of so many worthless numbers? Oh well, just think, if we didn’t have a “small town newspaper that makes lots of mistakes,” what would we have to talk about at church Sunday morning after reading the paper? Just think of the poor out-of-town visiting “toober” who picked up the Sunday Herald-Zeitung and discovered (erroneously), that she’d won 45 million dollars!
Best regards, Jim Stover New Braunfels
(Editor’s Note: The Herald-Zeitung printed the correct lottery numbers in the Tuesday edition. We regret the error and any confusion it caused.
The mistake occurred because of a bug that had not been identified before in new computer equipment purchased to allow us to print color photographs.
Page I is produced on one computer. The page is then put on a computer disc and taken to a second computer where the photographs are scanned in and the page is printed out as a negative.
Unfortunately, we did not realize that the two computers had incompatible versions of the software program used to produce the page (Quark Xpress). As a result, when the correct lottery numbers were added to the page at the second computer, they did not print out, even though they appeared on the computer screen.
The Herald-Zeitung has taken steps to ensure that the problem does not occur again.)
Construction on river prompts question
My wife and I are retired so we like to tube the Comal River during the week to escape the weekend crowds. We are always saddened by trash along the river.
On this Thursday, we saw a new horror on the river. About a block after passing under the Garden Street bridge, we saw a condominium adding to their property by filling in part of OUR Comal River. There was an area jutting out into the river about 20 feet encased with a cement foundation and a man
with a Bobcat was dumping in gravel into the river.
They must have had a city permit to do this work, but how can they take public property? The river is navigable, so the owner’s property ends at the riverbank—not the center of the river.
The key to this situation is “navigable,” which OUR river is, and thus the landowner becomes an owner of “riparian land” and his property ends at the bank and he cannot fill in public water and then claim it as his. I would like to know why a building permit was granted for this.
