New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 13, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Page SA Herald Zeftiiflg New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday, February 13, 1991 How cool Employees at the New Braunfels Coleman plant recently joined with other Coleman plant employees throughout the country to help out the soldiers in the desert by sending coolers to the Middle East.

(Photo by Erik Karlsson) Dallas woman offers salute to troops in yard sculpture DALLAS (AP) — Christy Moroch likes to think of her yard as greeting card to the world. Ai Thanksgiving, she placed 2,000 pounds of pumpkins on her front lawn. At Easter, she displays an array of 2-foot-tall Easter eggs. But this month, Mrs. Moroch has outdone even herself. The Dallas homemaker has created her own version of a Patriot missile as a yard sculpture. The rocketlike object is red, white, and blue, and has “Patriot, Too,” painted across the side. At 4 feet tall, it is positioned at the top of her front -yard fountain. The rest of the yard features giant trees decorated with red, white and blue lights. Two trees are strung with red lights, two with white and two with blue. Two other trees twinkle in red, white and blue. They are also decorated with yellow ribbons. Red, white and blue bunting covers one length of the yard. This patriotic tableau stops traffic at the comer of Deloach and Inwood in North Dallas, particularly at night when the display is lit up. The question on everyone’s lips is, “Where does a Dallas mother of two get a Patriot missile?” “It’s not really a missile,” Mrs. Moroch says. “It’s a bomb I bought at the Army-Navy store a few years ago. I mean, it’s not a real working bomb. I think it was once like a target bomb. I always put it up on the Fourth of July. Otherwise, I keep it in the garage.” Admirers do more than just drive by. Some stop to thank Mrs. Moroch. One note last week particularly touched her. “My son is in Saudi Arabia with the Isl Cavalry Ground Force,” it read. “He’s a tank commander, lf you have someone there or if you don’t, you must realize the importance of supporting our troops and our president. Thank you.” Another woman slopped, parked and looked for a few minutes. Then she went home and brought back her kids. “Every time I hear the war news on the radio, I drive by here and I feel. better,” she said. “God bless these people.” Mrs. Moroch has a nephew in Deserters, reduced fire point to military cracks DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Each morning, Iraqi deserters show up at allied border posts in increasing numbers. Each night, the anti-aircraft fire from Iraqi forces is less coordinated. After four weeks of intense, day-and-night bombing, there arc subtle signs of cracks in the Iraqi military’s resolve. “They have stopped operating as a national army (pursuing) theater objectives,” said Capt. Jessie Mori-moio, an Air Force intelligence officer. “What they’re doing now is trying to defend themselves as people.” Sporadic artillery duels along the border hint at that. While Marines and other units have peppered enemy positions with artillery and rocket fire, the Iraqis* response has been light and poorly aimed, despite the fearsome reputation of their South African-made 155mm howitzers. It is estimated the Iraqis have deployed 3,100 artillery pieces in the Kuwait area. Yet few have fired at allied positions. “Enemy artillery has not endangered friendly artillery yet,” said Col. Ron Richard, operations officer for the 2nd Marine Division. Morimoto said the nature of Iraqi anti-aircraft fire has changed. “Right at the beginning we saw the Iraqis responding as any scared Army would do,” firing large numbers of missiles at attacking planes, Morimo-to said. Now, she said, the Iraqis operate in snail pockets, working independently of each other. “The pilots can’t believe they’re doing this and nobody’s fighting back,” she said. There arc signs that many more Iraqis arc willing to give up as the slow leak of deserters grows to a stream. Along Saudi Arabia’s northern border, clusters of up to IO Iraqi soldiers show up at desert outposts each day, waving leaflets dropped by allied aircraft that tell them how to surrender. Officers say the official figure of 1,000 Iraqi prisoners is low. Marines report an increasing number of tired and hungry soldiers walking toward the border, hands in the air, eager for the food and cigarettes the Marines hand out. Once taken into custody, the prisoners are moved to growing tent cities at Saudi public buildings.

That’s the virtually unanimous conclusion of government, business and academic experts, who believe that U.S. reliance on Middle East oil will continue unabated and may even increase. That consensus, which emerged from a recent State Department oil seminar, is unwelcome news, given the uncertainties about the political makeup of the gulf region once the U.S.-led war against Iraq ends. The experts agreed that no combination of conservation or alternate sources would be enough to make even a minor dent in the American addiction — or that of other industrialized countries — to gulf oil supplies. The United States imports 40 to 50 percent of the oil it consumes, Europe 66 percent and Japan every drop it uses, said Lucio Noto, a Mobil Corp. vice president. “Whether we like it or not and despite the efficiency gains of the past decade, the world economy still runs on oil,” said William Ramsay, a top State Department oil specialist. “And as we look ahead, the trend seems inexorable. ... Major increases in consumption will certainly be The experts agreed that no combination of conservation or alternate sources would be enough to make even a minor dent in the American addiction — or that of other industrialized countries—to gulf oil supplies. supplied by the Persian Gulf.” The incentives for shaking America’s dependence on gulf oil would appear to be immense. Oil imports from that region drain billions from U.S. coffers, and the potential instability of the region, underscored by the Gulf War, has raised serious doubts about its reliability as a supply source. Almost two decades ago, President Nixon established energy independence as national policy, emphasizing conservation. But the panelists pointed out that most of the easy conservation measures — such as improved home insulation and more energy-efficient automobiles — already are in place. Saudi Arabia, but she says her display is for all of the troops. She started planning the display when she got caught up in the emotion of the beginning of the war. “My husband, Tom, has some show-business clients, so we screen a lot of movies,” she says. "The night the war started we were screening ‘Flight of the Intruder.’ “It was very much like what was going on in real life. When the film was over I was moved with feeling and emotion. I jumped up and yelled, ‘Yes!’ I knew it was lime to get out my bomb and put it in the front yard.” Richardson Chiropractic  Clinic INTRODUCING THE PRINCIPAL/ EPPLER, GUERIN & TURNER Now your investments and securities with Eppler, Guerin & Turner give you an even greater edge.
