Thanks for Wurstfest
I would like to thank all the people who organized Wurstfest.
I am eleven years old and my sister and I weren’t sure we were going to have fun. Boy, were we wrong.
The first thing we saw when we got there was the parking attendant dancing to the sound of music — it made us all laugh, especially little Granny.
We stopped briefly at the Big Tent, then we went to the food court and ate Blooming Onions. After that we went to the Little Tent where we listened to several bands.
My favorite band was the Alper-musikantez and my favorite song was In Heaven There Is No Beer.
It was really great and I am looking forward to next year.
Thanks for volunteers
As Chairman of the Annual Lighting of the Plaza, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteers who helped make this event such a success on Tuesday, Nov. 30.
There are so many people to thank, should I leave someone out, I apologize for the oversight. I will attempt, in the next few days, to thank each of you individually.
I especially wish to thank the CIMA Club for their generous contribution to the children of our community, in that they give of their time and money for the fruit bags given to each child after they talk to Santa.
I’m sorry I don’t have the names other than Mr. Claude Mendez, who is instrumental in getting these wonderful gentlemen to help. They know who they are and even if I don’t know their names — a BIG “Thank you” to each of you.
Thank you to Wuest’s for their generosity in helping provide food, paper products, etc.
Without publicity, no event can
expect crowds like those on the Plaza on Tuesday evening. KNBT-K.GNB Radio was most gracious in giving us free spots on the radio for several days prior to the event. A special “TTiank you” to Don Ferguson for being our emcee for the evening.
Thank you to the Parks Dept, for set-up and clean-up; the Police Dept, for helping with traffic control and for just being visible throughout the evening; the Fire Dept, for their generous use of manpower and equipment in getting Santa to his destination on the bandstand; to Janice Marin and her helpers from the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung for being our photographers; the many, many volunteers from the Downtown Association who helped with food, security, baking cookies, etc.; to the Entertainment Committee for all the wonderful entertainment added this year; to all the entertainment groups who made this event so successful.
It is gratifying to see this community-wide event for all people to entertain and be entertained as one big, happy group.
One last big “Thank you” to all the citizens of New Braunfels who came out and supported our efforts.

Concerns about bond reduction hearing
Jack Warren Davis will be going to court very soon for a Bond Reduc
tion Hearing. I believe this is a matter of grave concern to the citizens of this community. A jury of twelve people that live, work and raise families in Comal County found Mr.
Unlike Carolyn Toth, a witness in the case, the jury heard ALL the testimony and saw ALL the evidence and found Mr. Davis guilty. I believe that the jury did their job to the best of their ability. I understand why Ms. Toth, the apartment manager, would be reluctant to concede that Mr.
Davis was guilty.
The problem that faces us immediately is this: If Mr. Davis gets a reduced bond and gets out of jail until he can be retried, do you want him living next door to your family or friends? It is a real possibility. I trust in the opinion of that jury and if this happens I think that we can be quite sure that the person that committed this crime will indeed be walking the streets of our community-
A grave injustice has been committed against the Balonis family and against this community. What price does justice have? Just ask the victims.

For those who may not have read the article, it pertained to a proposed $750,000 tax abatement to induce Apple Computer to build an $80 million, 700 employee facility just north of Austin.
An economist said it could ultimately provide a $300 million boost to the economy and as many as 4,500 permanent jobs.
Sounds good so far.
The commissioners voted three to two AGAINST the proposal.
What! Are those three crazy? All those jobs and $$$ affecting the economy.
NO! NO! NO!
Those three are not crazy, they are men who are a rare breed today — their determination (even under intense pressure) to uphold high morals meant more than the almighty dollar.
Just what was the problem?
Apple Computer Co. Oust like the City of Austin) has a company policy of providing benefits (iasuranee, etc.) to the partners of gay and lesbian employees.
Apple Computer is headquartered in California.
I have two questions:
1. Can anything good come out of California?
2. More importantly, how would our Comal County Commissioners have voted?

Turkey Bowl a good cause, not wasteful
I would like to respond to a letter in the Dec. I edition of the paper about the Turkey Bowl at New Braunfels High School.

Second, the turkey used was killed by my son five years ago and was in our freezer. In my judgment, it was-not fit for any human consumption after being frozen so long.
The Student Council did not buy a turkey to waste as a bowling ball.
It’s a shame that these outstanding young people aren’t getting the credit they deserve.
