Karbach retires after 30 years service to medical profession
By Gary P. Carroll Staff Writer
After thirty years of service in New Braunfels, Dr. Hylmar Karbach is hanging up his stethoscope to pursue personal interests that he says are long overdue.
Karbach, a graduate of the University of Texas at Galveston with an M.D. and an M.A. in anatomy, interned at Cooke County Hospital in Chicago, 111., and performed his surgical residency at Robert Green Hospital in San Antonio and spent two years in the U.S. Navy before returning to New Braunfels in 1962.
Karbach was a clinical professor at a medical school in San Antonio for 25 years, teaching residents surgical procedures for 5 years and the remainder of his career was spent teaching the residents how to conduct their grand rounds.
Karbach was also a member and past president of the San Antonio Surgical Society, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons since 1965, and a member of the McKenna Hospital Bourd since the early 1970s. Karbach is currently a member of the Christian Businessman's Committee.

A four-alarm fire destroyed the Community Service Center
yesterday afternoon in a blaze that called on all fire fighting resources in the area - 89 men from nine fire departments including New
“Oh, my place, my medical supplies,” cried Suzie Garcia, director of the center. “I just gave (one of the workers) a ride home and passed by here on my way to an appointment with my insurance company.”
Garcia seemed stunned as she watched flames consume the center. The fire appeared to have started in an adjacent storage building, but it rapidly spread to the main structure and other storage buildings. Fire Chief Phil Baker indicated that the origin of the fire was suspicious and would be carefully investigated.
“All our units are here - all three engines and all of our on-duty people responded initially,” said Baker. “Once the fire was beyond our capability we begin to cpu for mutual aid. We put the call out to everybody — anybody who could send people. I think I counted eight departments total. Seguin, San Marcos, Lake Dunlap, McQueeney, Bracken, Canyon Lake, New Berlin, and Geronimo. We used everybody that came in.”
Baker said that most of the surrounding communities have volunteer departments that can only

send one or two people - even Seguin and San Marcos who have paid staff are limited in the personnel they can release. There was no lack of equipment or personnel, Baker said. “The whole world came out.” There were no injuries to firefighters and all the firefighters were required to wear air packs. I .ake McQueeney brought their air trailer so the air bottles were recharged as used.
“She (Garcia) told us she was gone about 30 minutes before the fire was discovered,” said Baker. “So something happened between the time she left and the time the initial call came in - around 5:05 p.m. We have our own investigators here plus we have members of our regional investigative team from San Marcos."

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior U.S. officials said today the military strike against Iraq accomplished its mission, but estimated that pilots destroyed only about half the missiles they targeted. They brushed off Saddam Hussein’s defiant response as “not in touch with reality.” ‘‘Any further military action will depend heavily on Saddam’s behavior during this period,” Brent Scowcroft, White House national security adviser, said on ABC.
“We accomplished our objective,” Scowcroft said. He estimated that U.S. and allied planes destroyed “in the neighborhood of half” the eight missile batteries they went after.
Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney said Iraqi claims of civilian casualties were “the same kind of gibberish we heard from Saddam Hussein during the (Persian Gulf) war.”
Cheney, who made the rounds of morning news shows, said on CBS that he had no evidence the
attack "hit any residential areas at all.”
He described the attack as "the right kind of response.” More aggressive options were available, he said, bul "our feeling was at this time that that would have been excessive.”

President Bush made clear Wednesday he is prepared to order additional military strikes if Iraq keeps violating the terms of the Gulf War ceasefire.
"I’m president until the 20th, and I will run foreign policy and make these kinds of decisions as long as I’m president,” Bush told reporters hours after more than IIG U.S. and allied warplanes returned safely from their bombing mission over Iraq.
Cheney said on CNN that he is not concerned by defiant statements from Saddam.
"This is a man given to flights of rhetoric that I take as indications that he’s not mentally stable,” said the defense secretary. "He makes statements that are clearly not in touch with reality.”
Military analysts were busy assessing the extent of the damage inflicted by the laser-guided bombs and HARM anti-radar missiles dropped during the 30-minuie raid on mobile and stationary missile sites in southern Iraq.
Pilots returning to the carrier USS Kitty Hawk said they made double passes over their targets to make sure they had crippled Iraq’s ability to threaten U.S. and allied patrols over a zone of southern Iraq inhabited by Shiites opposed to Saddam.
Pentagon officials warned that Saddam still had three anti-aircraft missile batteries in the northern “no fly zone” of Iraq, where Kurdish dissidents live, and similar weapons elsewhere.
