Circle Arts Theatre a treat for brothers
Did you ever attend a production at New Braunfels Circle Arts Theatre? Don’t ever miss a presentation! Take your hats off to excellent local talent, plus the staff at the theatre.
Not able to attend the last IO years, we recently saw the “Orphans on the Guadalupe.” What a wonderful production. Thank you all.

Truth about recycling Is that It doesn’t pay
I see that you finally had the fortitude to publish the truth about curbside recycling, in the article “Making Recycling more Market-based,” an analysis (4/23/95). The title is misleading. It should be, “Recycling Doesn’t Pay.” Quotes: “Recycling costs money— lots of money. New York, for example is cutting funding for police, schools, and transit services” which goes to support “a premium of $77 million over the cost of landfilling to collect and process 15 percent of its household trash for recycling.” To reach 25 percent would cost another $100 million!
“Municipal leaders in many localities are coming to the same conclusion: that recycling...sold as an environmental feel-good has been greatly oversold.” “Enthusiasm for recycling has outrun its economical viability. Curbside recycling is particularly inefficient...The study by KAB (Keep America Beautiful) shows that recycling adds to the cost of solid waste management by $25 to $48 per household.” The overall needs of the community must be considered. Could the many dollars being spent on recycling be better spent on more policemen, park patrols, higher wages for city employees, and many other good causes? Recycling should not be seen “as an end in itself.” Rather, the overall needs of the city should be considered. “Enthusiasm for recycling has outrun its economical viability.”
Drop-off programs are often more economical and more efficient. “Two-thirds of newspapers that are recycled come from drop-off programs. Only one-third are picked up at curbside despite the widespread use of curbside recycling. There is no reason to treat the collection of bottles, cans and newspapers as an untouchable program.”

Comments In militia article called treasonous
I am 94 years of age and legally blind but still have a sound mind and love and respect our country, our government and our highest leaders.
With all my being, I resent the article you ran in the Herald-Zeitung, “Militias expect crackdown in wake of bomb.” Personally, I think there should be something done about the remark you printed, that the government pulled off the bombing. A person thinking such a thing, much less voicing it, and an editor printing it as good news for us to hear deserves to be tried for treason.
Every red-blooded American should withdraw from such* an organization and be absent from their meetings.
There are too many people with disturbed minds and others disloyal to our country for such to be read by them.
God pity us if we don’t rally around our government and punish those who bomb innocent people.

High speed chases endanger innocent lives
Again we read where another accident has taken place due to officers chasing lawbreakers in a high speed chase. A recently published book is entitled “The Death of Common Sense.” It does appear that so many things that used to make common sense no longer appear to do so. It takes common sense to know that when two cars are weaving between lanes of lawabiding travelers on the road, and the two cars are traveling at IOO mph, that this is sooner or later going to cause a dreadful accident, usually killing or maiming one or more, and more often than not, it is usually an innocent driver who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In this case, fortunately (if one can say that), it happened to be the unlawful driver who was killed. But it so easily could have turned out another way.
Wouldn’t it have been more productive to send a radio message on ahead to other officers to set up a road
Sincerely, Mrs. M.B. Smith Canyon Lake
Outgoing club pro receives high praise
It was with regret that we read of the resignation of Bill Halbert as manager and club pro of the Landa Park Golf Course.
We have lived in New Braunfels over 40 years, enjoyed playing the golf course and feel it is in better shape
now than in many years. It is difficult to maintain a public course that is so popular not only with local residents, but also many visitors to the city.
We hope the city council and staff will continue to keep the course in as good condition as it is now. It is a valuable asset to the entire community.
We would like to express our appreciation along with many other golfers of Mr. Halbert’s expertise, leadership and hard work over the past 14 years. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
