New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 15, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Growth committee County makes 'temporary' panel permanent By DORIAN Staff writer MARTIN The Comal County Growth and Development Committee received unanimous approval to become a standing committee Monday. The move means the committee, formed last year on a temporary basis, will now be a permanent panel. The previous commute, which dissolved itself earlier this year, prepared a study on county water-related issues and problems. During their regular meeting, Comal Commissioners heard a report by county agent Bill Schumann on the committee’s feasibility. Schumann offered a summary of the committee’s objectives, which are: — To enhance the growth in Comal County and maintain the current quality of life. — To locate financial alternatives to meet demands. — To study the management of Comal County’s water resources for use as water-oriented recreation, industry, agriculture and domestic uses. — To recommend a short-run as well as a five-year plan. The report also stated what the committee was not intended to do. These are: — To promote or discourage tourism, industry, agriculture or domestic use. — To promote special interest groups. The committee will be made up of ll members. Each county commissioner will select two appointees while the county judge will pick three. Commissioners postponed committee appointment to another commissioners meeting. Schumann said he has contacted several people concerning the interest. Those who have expressed interest in possibly working on the committee are Dr. Dorris Brown, Beth Sherfy, County Commissioner W.N.

FRANK WITTING, District Agent 207 Writ San Antonis St. Now Braunfels Tom 70130 Oft ICO 625-7442 *1977 study conducted by Opinion Research Corporation, Princeton, New Jersey Prudential Life • Health • Auto • Home TM Prudential Insurance Company al Amor tea Car par att Office, Newark, New Jersey Double faces red By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who is a widow and often travels with a widower. Their relationship is strictly platonic. (My friend says she does not find this man physically attractive.) Recently the two of them attended her granddaughter’s graduation in another part of the country, and the daughter, thinking her mother and this man were lovers and not wanting to apear oldfashioned, put them up together in a room with a double bed! My friend said she was uncomfortable and somewhat embarrassed, but she didn’t want to make a fuss, so she went along with it. What are you thoughts on this? NO NAMES OR LOCATIONS DEAR NO NAMES: I find It difficult to believe that a grown woman with all her marbles would share a double bed with a man rather and “make a fuss’’! What fuss? It would seem perfectly logical for her to have told her daughter that she and the gentleman were just friends, not lovers, and separate accommodations were required. DEAR ABBY: Our son was married to a nice girl whose parents had no money, so my husband and I gave the young couple a wedding reception and paid for it ourselves. The invitations were sent out with reply cards. Eight couples we did not know but who were friends of our son and his bride returned the reply cards saying they were coming, so we counted on them for dinner as we did for all the others who accepted by mail. When the dinner was served, those eight couples did not show up. Abby, dinner at $41.50 a plate for 16 people cost us $664. After the wedding, none of the no-shows called to explain or apologize. And none of them sent a gift. My question is this: Since these people were friends of the bride and groom, don’t you think they should make good the $664° We offered to foot the bill for the reception, but must we pay for guests who accepted but didn’t s*- >w up9 STICK IN JERSEY DEAR STUCK: you are Indeed “stuck,” because having offered to pay for the reception, you are obligated to pay for the no-shows. They were very rude, and your son and his bride should let them know about it, but the financial loss — unfair as it is — is yours. DEAR ABBY: I worked for a married man for 25 years. For 18 of those years I was his mistress. I finally broke it off after trying to end it for three years. He got mad and fired me. Then he hired a young divorcee to take my place. I needed that job. Abby. I told him if he didn t give me my job back I would tell his wife. Should I keep my word? UNDECIDED DEAR UNDECIDED: No. If your boss fired you because you refused to sleep with him you can sue him for sexual harassamment. You can also appeal to the Labor Relations Board and/or one of the many support groups for women’s rights. WEAL (Women's Equity Action Leaue, 805 15th. St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005) and your local chapter of NOW (National Organization for Women) are particularly effective. Good luck. DEAR ABBY: In reply to “Bible Student”: Adam was not born, he was created. Also, the Bible states that “Mary was with child — not with fetus.” I really think “Bible Student” should go back to school.
