New Republican club focuses on teaching kids about being conservative
A new Republican club will have its second meeting April 2, according to Don Hensz, chairman-elect of the Comal County Republican Party. The new club will meet in the evenings, and will be for all members of the family, including men, women and children.
Meetings will be on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. They will be held at the New Braunfels Christian Church Fellowship Hall.
There are five Republican clubs in the county now, but there is still a need that is not being met, said Hensz. That need is for an evening group meeting in the city of New Braunfels. Three of the five groups that currently exist meet at noon, and the two evening groups meet at Guadalupe Valley Telephone Co-op, 17 miles from New Braunfels.
“This is an election year,” said Hensz. “We are a predominantly Republican county, and we have to make the
Republican Party as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.” The new club will not only be available to both men and women, but will have programs for youngsters as well. According to Hensz, children from conservative family backgrounds frequently receive little education in conservative principles while in school. “We have to educate our youngsters about what it means to be a conservative before they go off to college and are bombarded with liberal ideas,” Hensz said.
The program on April 2 will feature Damaso Torres, president of the College Republicans at San Antonio College, and district director of the College Republicans of Texas. Mr. Torres will talk about “Being a Conservative in the Liberal College Environment.”
The public is invited and urged to attend. For more information, call the Republican Party at 629-6442.
Bill would allow workers to keep health insurance
WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans would be able to keep their health insurance when they change jobs under a bill passed by the House, but unless Republicans drop provisions calling for medical savings accounts and limits on medical malpractice awards, the legislation may never become law.
House Speaker Newt Gingrich indicated he realized as much Thursday prior to the 267-151 vote, and said the provisions could be eliminated later if
necessary to stop President Clinton from vetoing the bill.
“But we want to make the case,” said Gingrich. “We want to try to convince him.”
The underlying purpose of the bill is to guarantee that workers get health insurance when they change or lose their jobs, even if they have a preexisting health problem.
Republicans insist their additional provisions would make that insurance more affordable.
Shadow program held last week
The Spring Semester version of the New Braunfels Chamber’s Shadow Program was held Wednesday, March 27. Approximately 167 Canyon and New Braunfels Middle School 8th graders participated along with 71 different local businesses and organizations.
Participants were hosted at a “Kickoff’ breakfast by New Braunfels Mid
dle School. Students then spent the rest of the day with the business sponsor learning about their job and the free enterprise system.
The New Braunfels Chamber’s Business/Education Partnership Committee plans the twice-yearly event, according to Eddie Temple, who chairs the Shadow Committee.

Letters to the Editor
Acquiring positive attitude changed life
I firmly believe that the years that have impacted me in a more successful aspect in my own life, are those from 1989 to 1996.
At age 31,1 feel very successful for just discovering my true identity and purpose on this earth. And I truly believe that the highest peak of my success was when I converted my self being.
From living a negative lifestyle to an overwhelming positive one, after the death of my father in 1989. Shortly afterward I soon realized that my family was at stake and I being a mother of three beautiful daughters would lose it all because of my rebellious lifesty le that caused me incarceration.
All of a sudden I found myself truly in love with life and all of its forth-bringings; whether they be good or bad. Accepting all mankind as my brothers and sisters in Christ and at the same time teaching the unschooled and offering a helping hand to the unfortunate. Earth is a beautiful place to live on, if we could only learn to appreciate it.
We must take time and STOP! from our busy scheduled days and see what has been given to us from God in order to live a happy and prosperous life.
If we could only take the time to care about everything in general and taking all under consideration, plus knowing our responsibilities as human beings, our lives would be well worth living.
Live upon life to the fullest extent, with a great sense of confidence and strength to overcome the obstacles that life brings. Set small goals and strive for achievement and/or accomplishment. The growth or goal accomplishments will progress after one or more have been achieved. I myself am not satisfied with leaving one goals and proceeding to the next until I have mastered the first.
One thing that I urge everyone, and no group in particular, is that of finishing your schooling, whether it be your G.E.D. or some type of educational class. Learn all you can, but not only through books, but from life itself. For you will soon realize that happiness and success is yours because of the sacrifice that was given toward the years of education.
For every opportunity that comes your way, grasp it and pursue it to the
maximum extent. Don’t let them slip through the cracks of life. Know when to invest your time in a wise manner, so good can be a result.
I also urge everyone to do this — work, work your fingers to the bones, for it is the only means of survival with a great sense of integrity and respect.
Money obtained through dishonest sources will end up in losses instead of gains.
We must not feel like failures because of one obstacle that has come our way that has been difficult to overcome.
Believe me, it takes a lot of patience and strength to prevail in life.
For me, my girls have been my strength to succeed in this cruel, but beautiful world.
Live your life to the fullest and don’t neglect that fresh flower that is there for us to enjoy.
STOP! and smell the roses and enjoy the days that have been given to us from above, instead of taking them for granted. God bless all who read this letter and may your endeavors and lives be successful ones.
Tee times lost to Winter Texans
As a citizen, taxpayer, voter and annual green fee member, I cannot get tee times and I think something must be done to accommodate local players. For example, I called for a Friday tee time on the pribr Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and was told no times were available.
I respect the “Winter Texans’” contribution to the local economy but their dominance of available tee times must be dealt with.
The city has collected from me, one year in advance, an annual green fee which entitles me to play any time during the year.
I can’t do this; the time I paid for has been given away. Snow-birds do not pay city property taxes or vote in city elections. I do!
I suggest local citizens be entitled to at least 50 percent of the tee times. Secondly, that locals be able to reserve tee times two days in advance and all others one day.
This problem solves itself every April I, but reoccurs each November
and lasts for six months.
Please accept the responsibility to deal with this ongoing problem.
I understand there is a proposed increase in annual fees. That is hard to justify when you cannot accommodate your citizens.
