Local 4-H'ers fare well at S.A. livestock show
By MIKE BARBOUR County Extension Agent
The annual San Antonio Livestock Exposition was another exciting event and a successful one for many local young people. Comal County 4-H’ers received awards in a wide range of the show’s activities.
Our horse club members were outstanding in the youth quarter horse show. Sunni Johnson placed second in the Western Pleasure class and seventh in horsemanship. Will Rob Borchers’ mare stood second, and Borchers also placed eighth in showmanship. Chad Farnsworth placed first in the junior halter gelding class.
Mark McWilliams had an excellent day, receiving four awards in the horse show. He placed second with his mare and in Western riding, and placed third in horsemanship and Western Pleasure.
Jeanne Kelley placed fourth in showmanship and eighth with her senior gelding. Chris Munie’s gelding was fifth, while Merideth McWilliams rode to a seventh place finish in Western Pleasure and had the sixth place senior gelding. Randy Schurig was second in horsemanship and third in showmanship and halter geldings.
Justin Jonas had tremendous success, placing three lambs in the auction sale, including the first-place light Southdown lamb. His crossbreed was seventh and his finewool was 13th. His brother, I^ance, had an lith place finewool cross lamb.
The competition in San Antonio was stiff, with over
200 lambs in some of the classes.
Miles Gibbs’ finewool lamb placed 19th and his medium wool, 21st. Allen Eckhardt’s home-raised Suffolk placed 26th. Cole Reinarz had 21st place finish with his lightweight cross. Clay Mathis, showing for the first time at a major stock show, was justifiably proud of his sixth-place ribbon for his Southdown lamb.
In breeding sheep, the Kaderlis did well with their registered Rambouillets. Donna Kaderli’s aged ram placed fourth and Ray Kaderli’s ram lamb was also fourth. In addition, Ray placed fifth with a two-tooth ram and sixth for his ewe lamb.
Two 4-H members placed their barrows in San Antonio. Billie Jean McIntosh was the big winner, placing first with her light Chester white. Colby Goodson’s crossbred barrow placed 30th.
Our beef cattle exhibitors also did well with their steers and heifers. Adam Laubach placed fourth with his Polled Hereford steer, which was raised by Brenda Setser, a former club member now attending Texas A&M.
Michael Johnson’s steers placed fifth and eighth; Susan Wenzel’s shorthorn steer placed third; and Parker Johnson’s Hereford steers placed sixth and seventh.
Walden Hillert’s Angus heifer placed fifth, and Mark Johnson’s Hereford heifer placed eighth.
Another note of interest is that Hal Herbelin of Nor-Tex Farms showed the grand champion Maine-Anjou bull.Adoption issues aired

DEAR ABBY: “No Regrets in Missouri,” who found herself pregnant and unmarried, chose not to have an abortion. Instead she gave up her baby for adoption.
I am also pregnant and unmarried, but I am going to have my baby and raise it alone if necessary. The father of my child wanted me either to have an abortion or to give up the child for adoption, but I would not consider either alternative.
I realize there is a long list of childless married couples who are praying for a child, but there is no way in God’s world that I would give away my baby.
I was raised to accept responsibility for my own actions, and since I chose to enter into a sexual relationship, I now accept the responsibility that goes with it.
I know that raising a child will not be easy, but my child will never have to wonder what kind of woman his biological mother was, where she is, and all the questions that plague most adopted children. Sign me... NO REGRETS IN IOWA
DEAR NO REGRETS: You don’t say how old you are or how you intend to support yourself and your child, but you sould like a very determined and together young woman. I wish you luck. An unwed mother who chooses to keep her child and raise it alone (if necessary) will need luck in abundance.

Bom today, you are doer and dreamer rolled into one. As a child, you no doubt attracted a great deal of attention because of your dual nature, which caused observers both to admire and question. Maturity brings you a basic understanding (rf yourself that enables you to engage successfully in a number of different kinds of activities at the same time. A selfstarter with a coati nous stream of workable ideas to draw upon, you are always busy.
Your strong personality dominates whenever you are in a crowd. For this reason there may be many times when you are not included in an invitation. For the most part, however, you are first on any party list because of your extremely high entertainment value.

parents, and vice versa, has become a popular one. We would like to know: After the adoptive child had been united with his biological parents, (a) how did the adoptive parents feel? (b) How was the relationship between the adopted child and the parents who raised him affected? (c) Were the adoptive parents and the birth parents genuinely happy to meet each other?
These questions are of valid concern to my wife and me as we have three adopted children who one day might want to find their biological parents.
We hope your readers will respond honestly so that we and other adoptive parents will know what to expect.
CURIOUS IN FLORIDA
DEAR CURIOUS: I, too, am curious. Readers?
DEAR ABBY: Several months ago I read a letter in your column from a reader who claimed that dogs in Holland do not bark because other dogs have never taught them how.
Ah, were that so! Unfortunately, dogs in Holland bark just as much as dogs in other parts of the world.
I know. For three years I lived next door to two dogs who must have been training day and night for the Olympic gold medal in barking.
We recently returned from a visit to Holland. While there we stayed with friends who had a Great Dane who should have been named ‘‘E F. Hutton” — when he barks, people listen!
