Bar owners get signatures to force vote on repeal
ByDYANNEFRY Staff writer
Locals in the bar business say they have more than enough signatures to force a public referendum on City Council's proposal to shorten the drinking hours.
Crystal Chandelier owner John Rabon said there were seven petitions circulating in the city, and that they already have “well in excess" of the 109 names needed to bring the matter to a vote. But the night club owners plan to keep collecting signatures through Monday, and then see what happens at the council meeting that night.
Council will take its second vote on an ordinance
repealing the 1979 ordinance that allowed local liquor establishments to apply for 2 a.m. permits. The repeal ordinance passed 6-1 on first reading. If it passes again, "then we’ll probably file (the petition) with the city secretary on Tuesday,” Rabon said.
The petition doesn’t ask people to take a stand either for or against late-hours drinking, he added. It simply states that the matter should be decided by the general citizenry. “I think at least three of the people that have signed don’t even go to bars,” Rabon said.
If the petition has at least 109 valid signatures (IO percent of the number that voted in the last municipal election), council’s action may be stopped before the third and final reading of the ordinance.Cheer Fund

We call this project the “Cheer Fund,” and we had our first one last year. The response was tremendous. We received over $2,000 in contributions and boxes upon boxes of food, which helped us feed 60 needy families.
We start this year’s fund with a balance of $565.31 left over from last year. To help kick off this year’s fund drive, we have received the following contributions from our employees:
That gives us a starting balance of $700.31
The procedure for this year’s drive will be the same as last year’s. We will accept cash contributions or nonperishable food items at our offices at 186 S.

These inhabitants of Weaners Turkey Farm on Highway 46 South seem to expect some sort of speech from an intruding photographer Undoubtedly, they're somewhat relieved that
it's Thanksgiving Day and they're not on somebody's dinner table yet. But there s always Christmas.
GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) - The Kremlin on Wednesday broke off U.S.-Soviet talks on limiting medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe, reacting swiftly to West German approval of NATO’s deployment plan.
President Reagan and other Western leaders said they regretted the Soviet walkout, which came less than 12 hours after the West German Parliament voted. In West Germany, the government said the first components of U.S.-built Pershing 2 missiles arrived after the Parliament vote, but refused to say where.
U.S. informants who requested anonymity said the components probably were flown to the Ramstein Air Base, where German police intensified security, detained nine reporters and confiscated their film.
Soviet negotiator Yuli A. Kvitsinsky left the session at the U.S. mission in Geneva after 25 minutes, wading through a crowd (rf anti-missile protesters and saying only that the talks had been “discontinued" indefinitely.
U.S. negotiator Paul H. Nitze called the move "unjustified and unfortunate.” He said the United States was ready to halt or reverse missile deployment if both sides agree to reduce or remove European medium-

range nuclear missile forces.
In Washington, Reagan said he was disappointed but not surprised by the Soviet walkout, and pledged to "do everting we can to bring them back.”
The Soviets have threatened repeatedly to quit the Geneva talks if NATO deployment proceeds, but Kvitsinsky's use of the term "discontinued” implied the Kremlin might agree to resume the discussions later.
It was unclear whether suspension (rf the lntermediate-range talks would affect the parallel U.S.-Soviet Stategic Arms Reduction Talks. The next round of START discussions are scheduled Tuesday in Geneva.
"I don’t know what will happen then, but you know that high Soviet officials have repeatedly said that the deployment of Euromissiles will also effect START,” Soviet mission spokesman Vladimir Evdokuchine told The Associated Press.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization plans to install 572 single-warhead Pershing 2 and cruise missiles in Western Europe starting next month to counter 243 triple-warhead Soviet SS-20 missiles already deployed.
Rhoads says syringes misused by youth
By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer
Their faces took on a look of astonishment when he said it. The audience was even more shocked when a local pharmacist nodded his head in agreement "I was told that between 40-50 syringes a weekend are sold to teenagers in the New Braunfels area, so they can shoot up on drugs,” Dennis Rhoads, chairman of Comal Chemical Abuse Program, said at a town meeting Nov. 21 "Is that about right?” he asked, looking over to pharmacist Ray Mendez, who works at City Pharmacy Mendez nodded.
A woman sighed, and mumbled, "Oh, my gosh That’s terrible.” Rhoads had made his point Local pharmacists were given equal time Wednesday. Most agreed there was a "potential for abuse,” but they varied on actual numbers.
Legitimate uses do exist for the syringes, which are sterilized for onetime use, and are usually stocked in packages (rf IO and boxes of IOO.
The syringes are not easily accessible at any of the local pharmacies contacted. Instead, all syringes are kept behind the counter, and a person has to ask for them. That gives the pharmacist some degree of control.
At City Pharmacy, Mendez said he sells 20-30 syringes in packages of IO on sn average weekly basis. “That’s
three sales, and I’d say once every three months, I tell a teenager “no ’ "But I have to add that’s more an exception than the rule,” he said quickly.
Saying no' means the pharmacist has some doubt about the person doing the asking. Lloyd Schlameus at Peerless Pharmacy said it happens "very rarely" in New Braunfels "But it was very common in other places I worked in Austin and Fort Worth, and that was IO years ago,” Schlameus said.
John Gates at Lands Pharmacy was absolute with his comments. "We keep them (syringes) behind the counter. We regulate who we sell them to, and we tell all youngsters “no’ unless we know their medical history.”
Has Gates ever refused to sell a syringe to a questionable teenager? "Local kids, no, absolutely not,” he replied. “It happens rarely here, mostly in the summer when the tourists come into town.”
He was totally against any law regulating the sale of syringes in Texas. “We’re over-regulated as it is,” he said.
Schlameus and Mendez indicated another regulation wouldn’t hurt. “I don’t think we need any more regulations, but if it comes to that, I could live with it,” Mendez said. "But I don’t know if a law is really the answer. I think it goes back to the
