New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 1, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Tuesday, March 1,1983 San Antonio firm gets county bid By JACQUELINE SMITH Staff writer Monday Commissioners Court found itself caught in the dilemma of whether or not to accept a bid from a local firm or an out-of-town company that submitted the lower bid. But after considering both bids, which were for county long-distance telphone service, the court accepted that of LOS Inc., of San Antonio — the low bidder Not accepted was a bid from Value-Line of New Braunfels. "On the one hand we want to do business locally," County Judge Fred Clark noted. "But on the other we're charged with the responsibility of spending the taxpayers' money in a sound, businesslike manner." County roundup Prior to Clark's statement. Commissioner Charles "Tart" noted "I can see that FDS comes out with more savings. But it i Value-Line»is a local firm and it will be paying local taxes..but still there is quite a bit of savings I offered by I.DSi.” Commissioner Monroe VVetz. who made the motion that the court accept LDS's bid, said the reason for the county advertising for bids was to save money on its long-distance bills. in order to do what we're supposed to do, which is save money for the county." Wetz moved that the court accept LDS’s bid. "I don’t think there s much there?” Commissioner Bill George, who seconded Wetz’s motion, said. "it all comes back to the lowest bid." The court is not only obligated by law »to accept the low bidi but it is good management practices." said Clark. Both LUS and Value-Line would sell the count) devices that could be attached to current phones (with rotary dials) to provide push button service. Push-button service is needed by both systems to provide long-distance service to the county, County Auditor Bate Bond said. Without the push-button attachments, Value Line could not provide long-distance service and LDS said it would have to charge the county IO cents per longdistance call, added Bond. To have touch-tone lines installed in the Courthouse would cost approximtely $1,187. he said. According to an analysis of the bids done by Bond, Value Line would save the county approximately $3,316 in long-distance bills for the first year of service and $4,136 for the second year. LDS proposed saving the county $5,402 the first year and $5,969 the second year. Those costs include the price of approximately 20 push-button attachments, said Bond, who proposed they be given to those county departments with the "heaviest long-distance telephone use." These departments, Bond said, include his own office, the County Judge (and Commissioners Court’s) office, the Sheriffs Department, the Tax-Assessor-Collector’s office and the Department of Public Safety. In unanimously approving the bid submitted by LDS, the court authorized Bond to purchase the 20 push-button attachements. thus eliminating the 10-cent charge per long-distance call. Other than discussion of the long-distance phone bids, commissioners took up only one other item Monday. The court approved the purchase of a piece of "blade type equipment" to be attached to the mold board of the County Road Department’s new motor grader. Cost of the additional equipment is approximately $1,250 and is allowed for in the road department’s budget. Bond said. County Roads Administrator Bodo Dietert noted that this additional piece of equipment will increase the fuel efficiency and operation of the motor grader.

Then she’d be a dead duck.” CAUTIOUS IN COLORADO DEAR CAUTIOUS: Thanks for the warning. Many others wrote to say the same. Read on for another helpful item on the subject: DEAR ABBY: Thanks for that column telling women what to do if they have car trouble while they're alone at night. You said, “Turn your emergency blinkers on, or lift the hood, to let passers-by know you have car trouble, then sit in your car with your windows rolled up and wait for help.” Abby, I wouldn’t recommend getting out of the car even to lift the hood. I bought an inexpensive reflective banner with large red letters bearing the message. "Please Call Police." It should be placed on the inside of the back car window so the driver does not have to get out of the car. It also discourages would-be robbers or rapists from attacking because they might assume the police are already on their way! The 3-foot reusable plastic banner folds up to glove-compartrnent size. To obtain one, call your local rape crisis center or hotline and ask if the organization has the banners for sale. If it does not, you can obtain a banner by sending a $4 taxdeductible donation to: The Los Angeles Rape and Battering Hotline, 543 North Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. 90036. Please enclose a long, stamped (37 cents), self-addressed envelope with your $4 check or money order. All proceeds benefit the organization’s 24-hour rape crisis and battering hotline.

OI Till Nowtpec** {til ft Tx* Aqv*n> Council BANKING ON TEXAS By Pat and Jack Maguira A KIND OF BANKING started in Texas in 1817 when Manuel Barrera, a San Antonio jeweler, asked the Spanish government to let him mint a small copper coin. The business was so profitable that a local bureaucrat, Postmaster Jose Antonio de la Garza, wanted it. He asked his friend, the Spanish viceroy, to allow him to replace Barrera as the money-maker. "San Antonio money." as it's called today, is a valuable collector's item. ***** it Pepper Upper: Because a soda jerk fell for the boss's daughter and a friendly Texas banker’s taste buds led him to make a loan, a new soft drink was born. In the 1880’s, young Charles Alderton was working behind the fountain in a rural Virginia drug store owned by Dr. Charles Kenneth Pepper. When he began romancing the doctor's pretty daughter. however. Pepper fired him. Alderton headed for Texas and a similar job at the Old Corner Drug Store in Waco. When he noticed that his customers were tired of the same old lemon, orange, sarsaparilla and strawberry drinks, he decided to concoct a new one. The soda sippers liked the new flavor and asked its name. Alderton, still pining for his old sweetie, called it "Dr. Pepper." It probably never would have been heard of outside of Waco if a bevel age chemist named H. S. La/enby hadn't tried it in 1883. He liked it and decided to bottle it. A local banker also liked it and agreed to finance the venture. Now IOO years old, its formula is so valuable that each of the two existing copies is kept in a different Dallas bank vault. ****** Governments, Ilk* individuals, also look to banka for loans. Since there was no banking system in the Republic of Texas, however, the government had to look outside for funds. The only bank willing to lend the new nation money was the Bank of Pennsylvania which advanced $500,000. With this proof of credit, the Republic issued bonds and dispatched an envoy on a fast ship to Europe in an effort to sell them to other governments. They refused to buy! mm GUARANTY STATE BANK On the Stuart and tm the Level.
