WalkAmerica due April 14
There may be plenty of sore feet after it’s over, but it will have been for a good cAuse.
The annual March of Dimes WalkAmerica will be Sunday, April 14, and locals will walk a 10-mile course to raise funds for the March of Dimes’ fight against birth defect.
Lori Allen and Pam Blake, managers of the Stop-N-Go stores on Walnut Avenue and on FM 725, respectively, are co-chairmen for the event.
Walkers may obtain sponsor forms from the stores, from Don Jamela’s law office, from Eon Friesenhahn’s law office, and from New Braunfels High and New Braunfels Middle schools.
Participants will ask family and friends to sponsor them for the 10-mile walk, and will bring forms and money to the starting point in Landa Park April 14 at 8 a.m.
Prizes ranging from T-shirts to AM-FM radios
to stereo cassette players, telephones and video cassette recorders will be awarded, depending on the amount of money raised.
Refreshments will be provided throughout the walk by Stop-N-Go stores.
“We extend an invitation to all citizens of New Braunfels and Canyon Lake to join WalkAmerica and to help the March of Dimes in its fight against birth defects,” Blake said.

You have a sharp sense of justice and will work to see it secured by any honest means

DEAR ABBY: I am a 21-year-old male college sophomore, reasonably intelligent, with no physical or mental problems—except for the one I’m writing about. I never learned how to ride a bike.
When I was growing up I never owned a bike, and I didn’t have the courage to ask any of my friends who had bikes to teach me. I grew up feeling inferior, but the pain of not being able to ride a bike was pushed out of my mind during my teen years when I learned how to drive my father’s car.
Now that I’m in college, I really need a bike because I live two miles from school and there’s no bus service near me. Driving a car is out of the question because there’s no place to park.
Is there a place where adults are taught to ride a bike? In private, I mean, because at my age I d feel like a fool trying to learn in a park or some other public place where people could see me. Please answer soon. This is eating me up.
DEAR ASHAMED: Don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s no crime to be unable to ride a bike.
Ask a friend who bikes to teach you on a country road. Or go to a shop where bicycles are sold; the people there will find a teacher for you. They may even suggest training wheels. You can do it. People have learned to ride a bike in their 60s; you’re just a kid. Get going.
DEAR ABBY: My ex wife and I are having an ongoing disagree ment concerning our 5-year-old son. (We have joint custody.) She insists on having the boy sleep with her every night that he is in her care. I don’t think it’s healthy for the boy, and I have told her so, but she has one excuse after another.
I think she’s using our son as a surrogate lover, or a doll. Well, he is neither a lover nor a doll, and I am worried that if this continues, she may do him some serious harm.
What do you think? And how should I handle it? I don't want to upset her as it has taken three years to build a halfway civil relationship CONCERNED KATHER
DEAK CONCERNED: Your concerns may be justified, but to avoid upsetting her, make no accusations. Instead, insist that she discuss it with a family counselor, who will undoubtedly agree with you. Your ex-wife will find the counselor's decision easier to accept than yours.
DEAR ABBY: Please settle an argument. Is it proper to send a wedding invitation to:
I A terminally ill person in a
2. A senile elderly person in a nursing home?
VV. IN NEW YORK
DEAK N.V.: No to both.
DEAR ABBY: Someone wrote in to say that women whose husbands always drove them around were at a terrible disadvantage should they become widowed without having learned how to drive. He then urged all married men to teach their wives how to drive.
I’m all for women learning how to drive, hut I have never met a man who taught his wife to drive who would recommend it to another man. A man can teuch another man’s wife how to drive, but when it comes to teaching his own wife, it s one big
fight from beginning to end!
I am not smart enough to explain it in technical terms, but there is something about the husband-wife relationship that makes it impossible for the wife to accept criticism or instruction from her own husband. And for some reason, a man has very little patience with his own wife’s mistakes.
Newlyweds or old-timers, it makes no difference: If there’s a man alive who ever taught his wife how to drive without a fight, I’d like to know how he did it.

DEAR BEEN THERE: Probably by knowing how to disengage his mouth until he put his brain in gear, his patience in overdrive and his temper in reverse.
CONFIDENTIAL TO YOU: Easter is nearly here, and if you plan to surprise a small child with a gift such as a live rabbit or a baby chick, please consider this: Living creatures need proper care; so unless you are certain that the rabbit or chick will receive the care it needs to survive, please give a stuffed bird or animal instead. Living creatures are not “toys” to he mauled, abused or neglected.
And if you plan to dye your own Easter eggs, please be aware that hard-boiled eggs— especially dyed ones—should not be kept (even under refrigeration) for more than a day.
