New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 13, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung □ Wednesday, December 13,1995 OSA Student raises concerns about higher speed limits Dear Editor, I am concerned about the speed limit being raised in Texas, I feel that if this happens there will be more accidents and deaths. When you go faster your reaction time is less, you don’t see objects lying on the road, and you don’t have as much control of your car. If people already go ten miles over the speed limit that means when it is raised they’ll go that much faster. It will be very dangerous getting on and off freeways because the off and on ramps are short; people will not be able to see you well. Also, it is dangerous going fast in cities because people are constantly changing lanes to get off the freeway. Another downside is that our insurance rates will go up because of the risk. The only benefit is that people can go faster and get to places quickly. I think that we should be allowed to vote on this issue. Sincerely, Natalie A. Biggs, 7th grade Homeschooled Editorial way off tho mark Dear Mr. Croteau, When I read your editorial (“Insomniacs’ nightmare,” Dec. 7,1995) I was horrified. I never heard such imbecile statements in my life. First I am the wife of a retired railroad man, he worked there for 33 years. It was a rule that the whistles were blown at each crossing. Needless to say, it was for a purpose. People don’t stop at crossings and when there are cross arms they go around them. How dumb can they be? Have you ever been at an accident where a car has been hit by a train? Where people were in too much of a hurry and tried to beat the train. Have you ever held a baby in your arms and they died? Have you ever held the hand of an elderly person and wiped the bloc#!, from their face. It must be a horrific'' experience. I know because my husband still has nightmares. Now, do you want this on your conscience. Go ahead and vote to stop \ whistle blowing at night and live with all the deaths that stupid people will: cause because they don’t want to miss i a little sleep. Next time there is an accident at a ‘ crossing go see what people like you : will cause and have to live with. God *. forgive you. Judith Crumrine; New Braunfels \ At New Braunfels Factory Stores.

We at the U.S. Postal Service wish you Happy Holidays. But since actions speak louder than words, we thought we’d mention some of the special holiday preparations we’ve made to simplify your life. For instance, we’ve extended hours in more than 4,500 post offices, and hired extra staff at many others. We’ve printed 3.7 billion holiday stamps, over two billion of them with self-adhesive backs. And many post offices have shipping supplies available. To speed things up, we now accept credit and debit cards at over 6,000 post offices. And every post office offers a free brochure of mailing tips. We’ve acquired an extra million square feet of space to handle all the extra holiday mail, and leased an additional 116 planes to help get it there. We do it all because this is the busiest time of year for you and for us. We anticipate handling about 4.4 billion stamped cards and letters - over a million of which, incidentally, will be addressed to Santa Claus, North Pole. We also expect some 99 million Priority Mail and Parcel Post packages, which occasionally gets very interesting. In years past, our customers have mailed a 20-pound box of chocolates, automobile tires, a rocking horse, a set of encyclopedias, and a swing set.    UNITED STATES P.S. Please mail early, and often.    ELU POSTAL SERVICE We Deliver For You. *>t«6UeP6 hup://w w ;
