Paul Fraser Jr.
I know many of you personally, but for those who don’t know mc, I moved to New Braunfels in 1960. I operated my own beauty parlor business for over 15 years. I have always been interested in my community and what is best for my friends and neighbors. I’ve been an active member in the 1st Baptist Church and in the Comal Democratic Party. I worked hard in the effort to “roll back” city taxes and to stop the 1/2 cent sales tax increase. I strongly supported the recent election of Rudy Seidel to City Council.
Now I think we are facing one of the most important elections ever in the run-off for District 4 City Council. Just as I could not personally vote for Mr. Seidel neither can I vote for Mr. Paul Fraser, but I am absolutely committed to help his cause in any way I can.
He and his wife are personal friends of mine and I have always found him to be honest and dedicated to what he believes is best for our community, our state and our country. Through him I’ve learned what it means when a Marine says he is loyal to a cause and to do his duty.
I urge each of you in District 4 to be sure and vote and I would strongly urge you to consider the outstanding qualification of Ret. Lt. Col. Paul Fraser. Thank
Marie Priem New Braunfels

SAFE has been slighted by Susan Curtis in her ads of May 8 and May 12. She implies Paul Fraser and group stormed Austin. The truth is: SAFE was invited, SAFE organized and lead the group and SAFE won another victory. Bob Krueger also helped with a live TV plug for our cause! Paul Fraser was there (as usual) helping.
Unfortunately, “HONESTY” was absent from her paid political ad. So that District 4 voters are not swayed by false information, let’s set the record straight. You are entitled to know the REAL TRUTH! About 45 concerned citizens (Mrs. Curtis was NOT there) went to Austin.
Stormin’ Norman won the Persian Gulf war, and Stormin’ Fraser is helping win the toxic waste war. Also, for the record, we were INVITED into Sen. Bill Sims’ office, we did not storm in. As for “crippling” our fight against Lafarge, consider this:
BEFORE the “storming” episode, the Lafarge permit was grandfathered by an amendment to the moratorium legislation. AFTER the episode, this Lafarge exemption was removed ... by Sims! So, Mrs. “Logical” Curtis, answer this: lf Lafarge was grandfathered BEFORE the episode but their exemption was removed AFTER the episode, did Stormin’ Fraser cripple our fight or lead us to another victory?
Paul Fraser did not scuffle “WITH” a council member; he was pushed “BY” a council member. Paul did not threaten a lawsuit, he filed assault charges with the county attorney. Prosecuting assaults is not unpredictable behavior — it is government’s duty. And, yes, we dc W ANT a councilman who will uphold the law!
Paul did not make the remark Curtis attributes to him about working with the council. What he said in response to the question put to all the candidates was (and we have it on videotape) “Yes I do. And more than that, I hope they are able to work with me too.” His actual words carry a far more cooperative tone than what Curtis portrayed by distorting what he said.
Paul does not use the term “greedy and incestuous 400” to describe city leaders. He uses the term “greedy and FINANCIALLY incestuous 400” to describe the network of rich local cronies who control much of our city’s wealth, power and institutions. While many of these people hold positions of influence, they can no longer be properly called community leaders.
Voters approved Paul Fraser’s positions in the last nine questions submitted to elections by margins of up to 85 percent. When “city leaders” disagree with 85 percent of the voters, just who is antagonizing whom?
The TRUE meaning of Paul’s remarks about the Rotary Club, Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce and etc. was to let the voters know he owes no political debt to any of these organizations. His “attitude” toward these groups is as positive as anyone’s. Since “Logical” Curtis accused him of “no allegiance” it makes one wonder about her obligations to all these people.
Finally, it was TINA Fraser who coined the phrase “Mommy Dearest,” not Paul!
Following is a partial list of the concerned citizens who went to Austin on that famous “Storming” trip:
Carolyn Phillips, Buddy Phillips, David Wallace, Cindy Wallace, Ben Luciani, Theresa Luciani, Gayle Johnson, Margie Rabom, Marie Priem, Gus Reimann, Tina Fraser, Paul Fraser, Bill Leslie, Roberta Leslie, Sue Smith, Terry Buck, Charlie Walker, Dotti Walker, Bob Young, Bootsie Young, George Stevenson, Ruth Stevenson, Paul Pennington, Robin Pennington, Ethel Canion, Barney Canion, Cindy Bowers, Chris Bowers, Janet Hagen, Paul Lenzen and Dorothy Lenzen.

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh (AP) — The U.S. military delivered more relief supplies to hungry cyclone survivors in one day than the Bangladeshi government and relief agencies distributed in the XA weeks since the killer storm struck, a U.S. admiral said Saturday.
Using a fleet of helicopters and hovercraft, the Americans have been able to ferry large quantities of rice, clean water and plastic sheeting for temporary shelters to remote islands and coastal villages. Many had been completely cut of! since the storm and only received sporadic supply drops.
Maj. Gen. Henry Stackpole, the U.S. military task force commander, said the final total for Friday was 265 tons — more than double the total for the two previous days combined. Soon, 300 tons of supplies a day
would be delivered to survivors, he said.
“Right now we are beginning to bring the full tempo up,” he said. “All the moving parts are coming together.”
Rear Adm. Stephen S. Clarey, commander of the seven-ship U.S. mili
tary Amphibious Task Group now ii the Bay of Bengal, said “we’ve already moved more supplies over one day than they could move” since the cyclone devastated southeast Bangladesh on April 30.
“We’re moving it as fast as they can give it to us,” he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A prolonged shutdown of a key U.S. nuclear weapons plant has forced the Navy to send some of its new Trident submarines to sea with less than a full complement of nuclear warheads on their ballistic missiles, military sources say.
It is the first known case in which the closure for safety reasons of the Rocky Flats plutonium processing plant near Denver has forced the American military to substantially alter its deployment plans for strategic nuclear weapons.
Unlike the eight Trident submarines in the Pacific Fleet, which are fully armed but with older missiles, the first four subs assigned to the Atlantic Fleet will have fewer than the maximum 192 W-88 warheads each, said the Pentagon sources, who demanded anonymity.
The Trident submarines are the crown jewels in the Navy’s strategic nuclear force. They form one leg of the Pentagon’s nuclear “triad” of land-, air- and sea-based nuclear weapons capable of striking the Soviet Union.
The Navy's decision was forced by the indefinite shutdown at Rocky Flats, the only U.S. facility that makes plutonium “pits,” which form the core of nuclear warheads. Plutonium is used to trigger the atomic reaction in the warheads.
The Rocky Flats closure has left the Navy with loo few W-88 warheads to fully arm the D-5 long-range ballistic missiles carried aboard the Trident subs, the sources said. Each of the 24 missiles on a sub can carry as many as eight warheads; each warhead can be aimed at a .separate target.
The subject of warhead deployments is so sensitive that even the Pentagon sources would not disclose how many warheads are being carried on the Atlantic Fleet subs, except to say that it is fewer than the intended eight per missile.
The first three Atlantic Fleet subs
— the USS Tennessee, the USS Pennsylvania and the USS West Virginia
— have entered service since Rocky Rats closed in 1989, while the fourth, the USS Kentucky, is to join the fleet next year They are based at King’s Bay, Ga
Rocky Flats is owned by the
Department of Energy and run by a this year, but the reopening already
private contractor. The department has been postponed several times and
says it hopes to reopen the plant late a restart date remains in great doubt.
