New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 19, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas Spring Branch news Sign-up idea displeases patrons By DEBBIE DELOACH Staff writer Comal ISD trustee David Boatner said he asked that the policy about public participation at board meetings be put on Tuesday night’s agenda “because things’ve been too quiet lately.” Well, he fixed that. Several in the audience weren’t too receptive to his suggestion of a sign-in roster for patrons at the beginning (rf the meeting, so they could address the board on agenda items. Current board policy states that a patron, when recognized by the presiding officer (board chairman), can enter a discussion or debate with the board on matters being considered. The audience was concerned the sign-up sheet would eliminate the spontaneity of the existing policy, and perhaps stifle some worthwhile public discussion in the process. “This was only a suggestion. I’m not saying we need to change a thing,” Boatner retracted. Board chairman Kenneth Wunderlich said he had favored “a model of the sign-up roster variety” for four years. "It would give some time for forethought before comments are made, as opposed to these personal attacks,” he added. Trustee David Way said he was in favor of leaving the policy “the way it is,” and that’s what was done. A policy on eligibility for extracurricular activities passed its second reading Tuesday night. Beginning Aug. I, a senior high school student shall be eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities only if he or she is passing four courses — as opposed to the current three-course passing requirement. The same policy also limits the number of invitational meets a student is allowed for participation in golf, tennis and CISD roundup literary-academic competitions to eight (excluding district, regional, area and state meets. It also limits school absences to no more than any portion of IO school days. Any combination of golf, tennis, and literary-academic activities cannot exceed any portion of IO school days. However, the absences for authorized University Interscholastic League contests are not applicable to the general attendance policy for student absence. In other action, trustees approved 1984-05 editions of curriculum handbooks for the high school and middle school levels. A majority of the changes were in course descriptions andor additions. However, trustees were warned more requests for changes would probably be forthcoming in light of House Bill 246 modifications. The middle school handbook was more of a chore than the high school edition. “The 1964-85 edition will the first formal handbook for the middle school level,” Asst. Supt. Gay Watson said, “and a lot of it was written from scratch.” The board also extended the work schedule for seven elementary and middle school secretaries by five days at a total cost (rf (1,832. The five days were added so the secretaries could work the same number of days as their principals. Trustees added Mrs. Graham (Carole) Green to the long-range planning committee membership roster, and accepted the resignations of Kenneth Nicholson, a custodian at Smithson Valley High School, and Charlotte Scheel, a cook at Bulverde Middle School. They also hired Virginia Whinnery to teach at Bulverde Middle School. Homemakers welcome guests By MRS. ALVIN GASS Spring Branch Extension Homemakers Club had its meeting at Mrs. Lawrence Knibbe’s home last week with 14 members, and two visitors, Betty Loomis and Dot Lyons. Mrs. Lyons became a new member. The meeting was opened by President Mildred Bartels. The two-minute opening program was by Hazel Loomis. Mrs. Emma Kremenck won a gift for an opening game. During roll call, the members named their most successful diet. Their program studied and filled out the group’s yearbook. Minutes were approved from the last meeting, and all communications were read. A committee of Vergie Rittimann, Rose Mary Johnson and Hazel Loomis was appointed to study the constitution and by-laws. The group elected Hazel Loomis as the nominee for TOPA and the delegate to the district meeting at Carrizo Springs. The group selected members for the Leader Training program, and made plans for the county-wide workshop. Birthdays for Marie Knibbe, Edwina Higdon, Vergie Rittimann, Opal Page and Ruby Ross were recognized. The next meeting will be Edwina Higdon’s home on Feb. 8. Lodge meeting Spring Branch Hermann Sons Lodge No. 127 had good attendance at its January meeting. President Milton Gerhard opened the meeting. The flag bearers were Monica Startz and Michelle Duncan. Condolences were read for Elisbeth Rugen and Omo Knibble. The sick committee reported four members in the hospital — Bruno Voges, Alvin Gass, Mrs. Walter Meckel and Emily Palm. The group welcomed a new transfer member, Everlyn Massey, from Port Lavaca Lodge No. 403 to Spring Branch Lodge. The lodge bought two new tables and one 30-cup coffee urn. The March meeting of the lodge was moved to March 25. On that date, members will have a short meeting and then go to the Spring Branch Bowlilng Club to join the Junior Chapter Bluebonnet which is bowling that day. Families should bring refreshment and eat at the bowling club. The lodge picnic will be July 15. Th* picnic’s site will be decided in March. Rachele Gass reported from the Junior meeting to the Adult Lodge. Happy birthday was sung to five members: Marie Knibbe, Faltin Beierle, Leslie Specht, Milton Grehard, Virginia Specht and Crystal Knibbe. Farm program applications accepted Nightlife Applications are now being accepted for the 1964 farm programs. The 1984 acreage reduction programs were announced last August for wheat and during the fall for com, grain sorghum, barlet, oats, cotton and rice. Clinton Dieted, chairman of the Comal ASC County Committee said farmers must sign up and comply with the acreage reduction program requirements to be eligible for loans and target price protection. To emphasize the conservation aspects of the 1964 programs, land removed from production will be put into an acreage conservation reserve. "We encourage farmers to place their more erosive land into the ACR while continuing to balance supply with demand,” Dieted said. For reducing their wheat acres by 30 percent of their base, farmers will be eligible for target price protection at $4 45 per bushel, price support loans at (3.30 per bushel and the option to reduce their acreage an additional IO to 20 percent for a payment-in-kind at 75 percent of their program yield. Dieted explained. Farmers who reduce their feed grain acreage by IO percent of their base will receive federal target prices of (3.03 per bushel for com, (2.88 for grain sorghum, $2.60 for barley and (1.60 a bushel for oats. They also will be eligible for loan rates of (2.55 a bushel for corn, (2.42 for sorghum, (2.08 for barlet and (1.31 per bushel for oats. The upland cotton program offers farmers a target price of 81 cents per pound and a loan rate of 55 cents per pound for reducing their cotton acres by 25 percent of their base. Farmers who reduce their extra long staple cotton acres by IO percent of their base will be eligible for target price protection of 99 cents per pound and loans at 82.5 cents per pound. “The 1984 crop of extra long staple cotton will be the first covered by new farm legislation, making the program similar to the upland cotton program,” Dieted said. Contracts signed by program participants will be considered binding and will provide liquidated damages for failure to comply with program requirements. The sign-up period ends Feb. 24.

You are one of those excitable persons who run a great deal of the time on nervous energy. Given to moodiness, you will have to guard against alienating others through seeming to be difficult to understand. You are not predictable, but you are aal so complex that a great effort must be made to fathom your depths. You are not especially outgoing: neither, however, are you anything like a loner. You enjoy your associations with others, though you are inclined to be more quiet about your pleasures than many. In your own reticent way, you are very much a romantic.
