New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 7, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Hencshel: Garden Ridge still getting cable TV By DYANNE FRY Staff writer The advent of cable TV in Garden Ridge was delayed by the telephone strike, but it’s coining, said Qty Councilmember David Hencshel. “There’s been a nasty rumor going around that I want to squelch right now,” Hencshel announced at Wednesday night’s council meeting. The story was that STAR Cable of Waxahachie had cancelled its franchise contract and walked out. Hencshel contacted STAR representative Rick Mansell, and “it was news to him,” he said. In fact, the cable company is scheduled to dig trenches for the laying of cable in Forest Waters Subdivision during the next two weeks, said Councilmember Bobbie Landrum, who works for the developers of Forest Waters. The new subdivision will have all underground utilities. In other parts of town, the cable will be strung above ground, and attached to existing poles. Hencshel said the recent Southwestern Bell strike put a crimp in this, since certain adjustments have to be made in the phone lines before the cables can be added. “The work they’re doing for the cable company is one of their lowest priorities,” Hencshel said. Council also talked Wednesday about a more nebulous item in Garden Ridge’s future: the City Council’s next meeting place. Mayor Paul Davis has had no official word on the impending sale of Uidshaw-Miller’s properties to two San Antonio businessmen. As far as he knows, the deal isn’t signed yet; but when it is, the present City Hall and the lot it's sitting on will be sold, too. That won’t necessarily mean the council can’t continue to use the building. But the city is going to have to have a permanent meeting place sooner or later, and Hencshel has been appointed to look into possibilities. “I’m not pushing it as much as you might Blink,” said Davis, “because I’m the only one here who uses this building more than an hour or sos month.” Hencshel has proposed applying the city’s $15,000 building fund to a combination city-community center, to be used for a variety of purposes. He'd be for using volunteer labor and in-kind donations from the community where possible. The city park has been looked at as a probable building site. However, Councilmember Bobbie Landrum reported Wednesday that many citizens don’t like that idea. “They’re saying, ‘Don’t put it in the park! There is absolutely not enough room in the park,”’ she quoted. Other council members indicated    similar    calls    ’ There’s also the possibility of obtaining a ready-made building. Resident Charles Elia told the council last night that a temporary Republic Bank building in Universal Qty was up for sale, and could be easily moved to a site in Garden Ridge. “Being as how we’re a municipal organisation, and would probably be good for a tax deduction, they might be willing to take a lower price or outright gift it to us,” Elia said. “You’re on the right track,” said Hencshel, who has thought along the same lines, but wasn’t aware of this particular building. “It will certainly be looked into.” Councilmember Neil Craigmile, in charge of streets and building, passed out a copy of the revised city building code, which the council expects to vote on next month. Craigmile said the ordinance wasn’t typed up in time to be placed on Wednesday's agenda.

Behind her are students who dressed in costumes and carried class banners for the occasion. In the program, students will receive recognition as they read a certain number of books.

I’ll call him “Brian.” I asked my parents if I could go out with him, and they said no, right off so I’ve been sneaking around to be with him. Abby, we really love each other, but Brian says he is not a talker, he is a doer. He wants to show me how much he loves me by making love to me. I’m still a virgin, but we have come very, very close to going all the way. Brian wants me to prove my love by going all the way with him, but something is holding me back. He says it’s not wrong to have sex if you are really in love. What should I do? BRIAN’S GIRL DEAR GIRL: Brian may tell you he Is not a “talker,” he to a “doer,” but he to both, so don’t let him talk you bito (or out of) any thing. That old “prove-your-love” line has been around for a very long time, and it’s just as phony today as it as when your grandmother was a girl. No respectable young man would allow — much less encourage — a 13-year-old girl to sneak around and lie to her parents. I can understand how your young heart throbs when you’re near him, but It’s ■ut ••lave” — Ifs a natural sex desire, which to nothing to be ashamed of. But yon are too young, emotionally Immature and vulnerable to become sexually active. Be wise, young lady, and cool It with Man before you lose control and find yourself ta serious trouble. DEAR ABBY: Very often you advise your readers to “consult your clergyman.” While there is absolutely nothing wrong with Bds advice, there is something definitely wrong with your terminology. Since most major denominations have been ordaining women for quite some time, the proper term is no longer “clergyman.” It is either “dergyper-son” or “member of the clergy.” Only when the individual’s sex is known should the terms “clergywoman” or “clergyman” be used. Please sign me ... THE REV. SUSAN F. JAREK-GLIDDEN: a clergywoman, a clergyperson, or a member of the clergy — but most definitely not a clergyman. UNITED METHODIST CHURCH SALEM, N.H. DEAR ABBY: I identified with the 13-year-old girl who was ashamed to invite her friends over because she lived in a “dump.” You see, I also grew up in the same kind of home. Only a year ago did I learn at a class reunion that my friends loved coming to my house because they found it so comfortable and my parents so kind and friendly. Many of my former classmates told me their homes were so “perfect,” and their parents so concerned with keeping the house “neat and tidy,” their friends couldn’t relax there. I was actually envied for my parents and the home I thought was a “dump.” I’m sorry I didn’t know sooner, before my parents died. WISER NOW IN MAINE Every Ieee ager should know the truth about drugs, sex, and how to be happy.

In reality, you are a hard worker, both dedicated to and concentrated an your goals. You often take on projects just outside your capabilities at the moment and, in the process of successfully completing them, do a great deal of mental, emotional and spiritual growing. You are not afraid ct challenges; indeed, you are happiest when in the throes of meeting them. Though in no way egocentric, you are cetainly confident. What you don’t know, you have no doubt you can learn. You always make a conscious effort to get along with colleagues and partners, whether the involvement be serious work or light-hearted play.

Tbxbb A heavy thunderstorm rumbled through Hamilton in North Central Texas early today, knocking out power and producing golf bell-size hail. Showers and thunderstorms were scattered across the rest of the state after developing north of a weak warm front that stretched from Houston to Midland. Visibility was reduced to less than a quarter of a mile in Amarillo as a dense fog blanketed areas of the Panhandle. The rest of North Texas and South Central Texas had mostly cloudy skies. Fair to partly cloudy skies prevailed elsewhere.EYE OPENERS- By Dr. Henry Hall M/M VISION MID SPORTS 0 Is tt necessary to have 20/20 vision to be a good athlete1 A 20/20 vision only means that you can see an object clearly from a distance of 20 feet A good athlete needs many other visual skills as well, including cleat near vision, depth perception, speed of recognition (how test the visual image is processed by the brain), quick visual reaction time. and good peripheral (side) vision A recent study of athletes and sports officials has shown that many athletes whose distance vision is clear are deficient in the other visual skills However, may of these skills can be developed Some outstanding athletes have done so! 0 Will wearing glasses interfere with playing baseball and tennis?
