Mark Would someone please pass the air conditioner this way? That seems to be a popular phrase for most locals as we do our best to endure the hot, baking Texas heat What is so intimidating about the whole thing is that we haven't even reached July yet But hey, this is Texas weather and if you don't like LVOII    it* hang around awhile and it ™    will change. Have you ever wondered just how hot it is right here in New Braunfels? How about Bulverde, Spring Branch, Saltier? I have. It's tough being so close to San Antonio. Everywhere you look there is information about San Antonio weather and very little about New Braunfels and Comal County. Every once in a while someone from New Braunfels or Bulverde calls in the temperature to a San Antonio TV news station. But beyond that, there is nothing to say what went on in our neck of the woods. Of course things are different here. Thats what makes Texas weather so crazy. You can stand on one side of New Braunfels (or just about any town in the state) at times during the year and get down right drenched from run while a friend across town may be sun bathing by the pool. There's no ryhm or reason. We think that is all the more reason to bring you more local weather information. The Herald-Zeitung editorial staff has tossed the idea around during many a meeting and we've come up with the idea of including our readers in a data gathering effort Here's how it works: ■ Anyone in the New Braunfels, Comal County, and eastern Guadalupe County area is eligible to participate. All that is required is an outdoor thermometer, rain gauge and a telephone. ■ Record the day's high temperature reading on your thermometer and precipitation reading (if applicable) on your rain gauge and call the Herald-Zeitung (625-9144 or Metro 606-0846) by 5 p.m. so that we may publish your readings in the next day's edition. ■ Our Herald-Zeitung receptionists will write down your information, including your name and where you live (no street addresses, please). Well publish the information on a county map in the next day's edition. Well list the name of the contributor and indicate the approximate location on the map. Be sure to mention anything you think to be unusual in your report, such as hail or hail size in the event of violent storms, wind speeds if available, blown over trees, or even eggs frying on your sidewalk. We think it will prove to be an interesting section of the paper and one that will be well-read. But we can't share this information without volunteers from our readership. Participation is as easy as dialing the telephone. Well only take a minute or two with you over the phone and then you can get on with your day. When do we start? The Wednesday, July 6 edition of the Herald-Zeitung will be the first day. That means well need to hear from you by 5 p.m. Tuesday. Well publish a few reminders in Stammtisch on Page IA before then. Since there's absolutely nothing we can do about this Texas heat, we might as well have some fun covering it, huh? (Mark Lyon is managing editor for the Herald-Zeitung.) Draft GOP plan drops unversal coverage By DAW) ESPO Associated Press WriterAnalysis WASHINGTON (AP) — With key committee votes ^roaching in both houses. Senate Republicans are circulating a scaled-down alternative to President Ginton’s health reform bill that relies on tax breaks for workers and federal subsidies for the poor to expand coverage to the uninsured. In contrast to Clinton's bill, the GOP draft contains no requirement for universal coverage and is stripped of the administration's proposal for employers lo finance insurance for their workers. It also drops the tobacco tex hike the administration and many lawmakers favor to pay for expanded health care. Financing would come from $100 billion in savings from Medicaid and Medicare over five years. Like virtually all proposals under discussion, the GOP draft calls for changes to make it tougher for insurance companies to deny coverage to Today in history By the Associated Press Today is Wednesday, June 29, the 180lh day of 1994. There are 185 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On June 29,1767, the British Parliament approved the Townshend Revenue Acts, which imposed import duties on glass, lead, paint, paper and tea shipped to America. Colonists bitterly protested the acts, which were repealed in 1770. On this dale: In 1776, the Virginia state constitution was adopted and Patrick Henry was made governor. In 1941, Polite) salesman, pianist and composer Ignace Jan Paderewski died in New York al age 80. those seeking it. The emergence of this proposal is likely to give many Republicans an alternative they can rally around when the issue reaches the Senate Boor in July. It also provides a counterweight politically to Clinton’s approach, with its reliance on government mandates and higher taxes to expand coverage to all. Republicans were expected to discuss the proposal privately at their party caucus today as committees in both the House and Senate labor to send bills to the floor by the end of the week. Clinton's plan for universal coverage faces insurmountable opposition in the Senate Finance Committee, largely because it would impose requirements on employers and individuals to pay for coverage. An alternative produced by a bipartisan group of committee members sets a goal of getting 95 percent of Americans covered by 2002. In 1946, British authorities arrested more than 2,700 Jews in Palestine in an attempt to stamp out alleged terrorism. In 1949, the government of South Africa banned racially-mixed marriages. In 1954, the Atomic Energy Commission voted against reinstating Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer’s access to classified information. In 1964, the United States bombed fuel storage facilities near the North Vietnamese cities of Hanoi and Haiphong. In 1967, Jerusalem was re-unified as brad removed barricades separating the Old City from the Israeli sector. In 1970, the United States ended a two-month military offensive into A national health commission then would recommend ways to close the rest of the gq>; Congress would have to take up their advice quickly, but would not be bound to carry it out "We believe very strongly that when you get tip toward 95 percent, it's very close to universal coverage — and what's mort, it can pass,” Sen. John Chafee, R-R.I., one of the authors of the plan, said after the full Finance Committee met to review it. The Finance Committee is expected to vote on a plan by week's end, and two Democrats, John Breaux of Louisiana and Kent Gonad ot North Dakota, predicted the panel would defeat proposals designed to ensure the universal coverage Clinton wants, then approve the general approach fashioned by Chafee and others. Administration allies in the committee, including Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., are expected to lend their support despite limited enthusiasm for the provisions in the bill. Their hope is that Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, D-Maine, can make Cambodia. In 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the death penalty, as it was being meted out, could constitute “cruel and unusual punishment.” The ruling prompted states to revise their capital punishment laws. In 1981, Hu Yaobang, a protege of Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, was elected Communist Party chairman, replacing Mao Tse-iung’s handpicked successor, Hua Guofeng. In 1992, a divided Supreme Court ruled that women have a constitutional right to abortion, but the justices also weakened the right as defined in Roc vs. Wade. Tan years ago: The Soviet Union formally offered to open direct bilateral talks with the United Slates on banning the bill more to their liking once it reaches the Senate floor. Across the Capitol, the House Ways and Means Committee is plodding toward likely approval late in the week of a bill patterned closely on Clinton's approach. Democrats on the committee met into the night to discuss consumer protections and long-term care benefits in their bill. They put off for another day a fight over whether to put brakes on the growth of public and private medical spending. Al the White House, Clinton kept up his lobbying for coverage for all — the condition he said last winter is necessary to win his signature on a btil. Meeting with medical school deans, he aid legislation should “provide basic, decent coverage to all Americans.” The Chafee proposal would change insurance rules and discourage high-cost health insurance plans by imposing a tax on the most expensive 40 percent of plans. anti-satellite weapons in space. Five years ago: The U3. House of Representatives voted unanimously in favor of new sanctions against China because of its crackdown on the prodemocracy movement One year ago: Joel Riflun pleaded innocent at an arraignment in Mineola, N.Y., to one count of murder, a day after police found a woman's body in his pickup truck. Rifkin, who confessed to killing 17 women, was sentenced to life in prison for murdering Tiffany Bre9ciani.
