Volunteers needed to teach reading
The Guadalupe, Bexar and Comal County Literacy Council will hold a training session for people interested in tutoring non-readers or low-level readers.
The twelve hour workshop will be held Feb. 25 and 26, at the Seguin Public Library, 707 East College Street, Seguin. Feb. 25 will be from 6-9 p.m., and Feb. 26 will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Edith Flathmann, a Laubach Literacy Trainer will provide the instruction for the workshop.
Tutoring sessions are on a one-to-one basis. The reading program is individualized so that the non-reading or low-level adults can set and pursue their own goals.
Tutors only need to have a high school diploma or a GED and be willing to work with an adult who wants to learn.
We will provide the training. Preregistration deadline is Feb. 18. If you would like to tutor or know of an adult who has a need of our services, please call the Literacy Council at 658-5936 Monday-Friday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon.

New Braunfels Optimists plan to start Seguin club
The New Braunfels Optimist Club is in the process of forming an Optimist Club in Seguin. Optimist International is the fourth largest service organization in the world. Its motto is “Friend of Youth.” It has clubs all over North America, where approximately 4200 dubs and 157,000 members make up the organization.
Working directly with young people, Optimists organize and conduct many types of events and programs for youth. Some of these are: substance abuse prevention, anti-steroid programs, oratorical contests and essays for scholarship, Octagon Club, Junior Optimist Clubs to build leadership, Help Them Hear and Hearing Impaired Oratorical contests and Tri-Star Sports.
They do what needs to be done. Being a member helps develop leadership skills of the Optimist.
Optimist International is a federation of clubs which allow s each Optimist Club to develop projects to meet
the needs of its individual community. Three major reasons why we are the fastest growing service club in the world are that I) 95 percent of the projects our clubs do directly involve our members with kids; 2) all of the money raised by our clubs stay in die community; and 3) we are actively recruiting women to be members of our organization.
All concerned adults who might have an interest in belonging to this local club are extended an invitation to join the Optimists at their first informational meeting on Monday, Feb. 7, 1994, at the K & G Steak House (second floor), 3000 N. Hwy. 123. Meeting will start at 7 p.m. and will last one hour.
The purpose of the meeting is to explain the organization, answer questions and measure the level of interest. If you have questions meanwhile, call Miles Parker at 379-4094.
Utility bills to reflect reduced fuel cost
The Lower colorado River Authority has notified New Braunfels Utilities and other LG RA wholesale customers of recent approval from the Public Utilities Commission to reduce fuel charge rates.
The new rates, which went into effect Dec. 25, lower the fuel charge from 1.44 cents per kilowatt hour to 1.41 cents per kilowatt hour.
NBU residential customers can expect to see a reduction of about 31 cents per month on the Power Cost
Recovery Fee item of their utility bills.
The LCRA’s ongoing efforts to reduce energy costs whenever possible should result in wholesale customers paying about $2 million less in annual fuel charges.
