New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 14, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas For the Record Page 3A Herald -ZeltungSunday, February 14,1993 MY FAVORITE CAR Dorothy Mills’ Metropolitan dream realized By David Sultans Editor and Publisher It took Dorothy Mills 34 years and a back hoe to get her Nash Metropolitan, but shell be quick to tell you the car was worth the wait and the work. “In 1958,1 was 15 years old and became aware of those cute little Nash Metropolitans," Mills wrote recently to a newsletter for others interested in the little cars. “My dad offered to buy me one when I turned 16. Soon after, he suffered a heart attack and medical bills kept him from buying my car. “At 17,1 married a boy with a ‘51 Chevy who had never heard of a Metropolitan. Through the years, I would point out a Met and tell him of my desire to own one. “He thought I was crazy and reminded me of all the problems my dad had with his Nash cars. “In September 1991,” Mills, the manager of the Green Valley Special Utility District in Marion, wrote, “I persuaded my husband to let me buy a 1961 Met hardtop ‘as is’ at an auction. We towed it home and discovered its poor condition. Everything needs to be repaired, reaone or replaced! With our four daughters grown, the empty nest allows me time to work on it. Though I am an accountant and not a mechanic, I am attempting to do the work, with my husband’s advice, but most often he has to put mind and muscle to it for me. He bought me the video ‘A Watch Charm Rolls Royce’ for Christmas and it seems that after he watched it, he has more interest in my Met! “In about 1978,1 had found a 1961 Met out in the woods behind a mechanic shop. I offered to buy it then, but there was a long stoiy involving nonpayment for repairs ana their being unable to sell it Every few years, I would approach the property owner, trying to persuade him to sell me the Met; the answer was always ‘no.’ “In the meantime, a subdivision was built nearby and kids began to play in the Met. My heart acned to see it being destroyed. Finally, in November 1991, the heirs to the property yielded and gave me the car. We had to cut down a tree, dig it out with a back hoe, and lift the little car's remains onto a trailer to get it home. There are very few usable parts left on it, but it is mine! I now have a parts car and consider myself a real’ Met owner. “We often hear about the love affair between owners and Meta I can vouch for the truth of that,” Mills concluded her letter. There is an affinity with my Met that cannot be explained. I am not doing a complete restoration to it, so it probably will never go to a car show, never run perfectly, or impress anyone. But I love my Met It represents the realization of a lifelong dream, the fulfillment of a promise made 34 years ago, the proof that patience is a virtue, the satisfaction of bringing back to life something of value. “Now, if I can just get that third wheel off and those brakes to work, the holes in the as tank repaired, the water pump to quit leaking, and the fuel work, I will get to work on replacing the floorboard!" "My Favorite Car” is a weekly feature of the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung.

The Spani sh -language program, Celebremos la Literatura and the English-language program, The Literature Experience, both developed by Houghton Mifflin Company, have a multi-cultural focus and incorporate of authentic literature by Southwestern ddthors. “We are proud of these two ground-breaking programs which were the result of years of research into the needs of Texas schoolchildren and their teachers,” said Mary Kelly, vice president and general manager of Houghton Mifflin in Dallas. “In our work with local educators and officials, the response has been very positive — one teacher who field-tested the Literature Experience even delayed her retirement in order to teach the program again.” Both Celebremos la Literatura and The Literature Experience were designed to meet the guidelines of a forward-thinking proclamation by the Texas Education Agency which calls for all reading programs to be literature based. Literature-based reading uses real literature selections in their ACROSS 1 French WW ll leader 6 Lacerates 11 Noah's son: var. 14 Scarlett — 15 Finish 16 "All About 17 Prince of — 18 Nasal-sounding 20 Lure 22 — union 23 Indian coin 25 Gossip 28 Leg part 29 Carpet 30 Was ambitious 32 Hatred 34 Ottawa resident, e g. 39 Dipping in water 42 Decrease of tensions 43 Island" 45 Give money for 46 Track official 49 Made of: suff. 50 Wound cover 54 Sting 55 Ending for man or teen 56 Sorceress 58 Sailors 60 Tree park 63 Poetry Muse 66 Overly 67 Illinois city 68 Fabric 69 Nevada city 70 Guide 71 Dispute DOWN 1 Not high 2 Eureka! 3 Greeting card 4 Amphitheater 5 Final 6 China piece 7 Constantly present in an area 8 Refreshing drink 9 Race 10 Notice 11 Auto type 12 Keep away from 13 Noisy fight 19 Annoy 21 Apr. 15 addressee 23 Spiritless archaic 24 Low point 26 Mouthward 27 Philosopher — Descartes 30 Faulty 31 Mailroom tool 33 "Made in —" 35 Room 36 Outraged original form to allow children to learn basic skills such as phon-** ics, decoding and word recogni-' bon in a natural and highly effec-' rive manner. “Celebremos la Literatura is a reflection of what Texas bilingual. ;■ educators have been looking for in reading books: quality literature, . that is relevant to the students’/ experiences,” said Ray Gonzales,’k Spanish literature consultant for , Houghton Mifflin. “With this pro-gram, as well as The Literature; Experience, we brought together * / top regional authors whose work will inspire and build self-esteem < among all the children of Texas.” Literature-based reading uses.' exciting reading selections to serve as a springboard for the % development of student reading , skills.
