By STELLA WILDER WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 13
Born today, you are inclined to be independent even though you are a great respecter of tradition, established insitutions, and rules and regulations. More apt to follow your heart than your head, you may at times get yourself into emotional difficulties from which those who have your best interests at heart must extricate you. You are intelligent, but not particularly intellectual. You are both spiritual and spirited — a combination that can cause inner turmoil at times as a yearning for excitement vies with a sure knowledge of good.
Not one to allow gloom to hang over your head, you accept even bad news with a modicum of optimism. Your belief in the future, in your own ability to do what you set out to do, carries you through disappointments and prevents them from descending into discouragement.
Also born on this date are: Marie Osmond, singer, actress; Burr Tilstrom, puppeteer; Art Garfunkel, singer, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star by your daily guide.

Due to the retirement of Robert W. Henslee, chief engineer of the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority for the past 21 year, there has been a shift in senior staff organization of GBRA.
Current GBRA Operations Manager Gregory E. Rothe will assume the position of chief engineer and Fred M. Blumberg, assistant operations manager, will be promoted to fill the vacancy left by Rothe’s reassignment, authority general manager John Spechtsaid.
Rothe joined GBRA in 1974 as assistant engineer and was promoted to operations manager in 1975. In his new position, Rothe will be responsible for review of plans and specifications and other work prepared by consulting engineers; supervision and administration of construction projects and preparation of technical applications and reports.
He will also be responsible for development of technical operating procedures and consultation with operating personnel regarding implementation; supervision of hydrologic records and water accounting and inspection of authority structures and facilities for repair and improvement purposes.
Rothe is a 1973 graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in agricultural engineering and is registered with the state of Texas as a professional engineer.
Blumberg was hired by the authority in 1974 as a recreation planner and was promoted to the position of assistant operations manager in 1975. During his tenure as assistant operations manager, Blumberg will be responsible for the administration, operation and maintenance of all Authority properties and facilities including the six small hydroelectric plants on the river in Guadalupe and Gonzales Counties.
He will also be responsible for the five small rural water and wastewater treatment systems in Comal and Guadalupe Counties; Canyon Reservoir and the distribution of water stored in the reservoir; and two water delivery systems supplying domestic, irrigation and industrial users in Calhoun County.
Blumberg will also oversee two water treatment plants located in Calhoun and Caldwell Counties; a regional wastewater reclamation system in Victoria County and the Coleto Creek Reservoir and related recreation facilities in Victoria and Goliad Counties.
Blumberg attended high school in Seguin and is a 1969 graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in recreation and resources development. He received his masters degree from Texas A&M University in 1975.
Specht stated that the authority is fortunate to have flexibility in staff capacities necessary to maintain a continuity in the management of GBRA activities throughout the Guadalupe River Basin.
The authority is a political subdivision of the state and is charged with the responsibility for the development of water resources within its 10-county service area.
GBRA maintains a central business office in Seguin and operations offices at many of the projects it operates throughout the Basin.
Cattle disease draws warning
Texas livestock producers should be on the lookout for a non-fatal disease affecting cattle, horses, and swine.
This disease Vesicular Stomatitis — has been not been reported in Texas, although it could occur, said Dr. James Armstrong, veterinarian for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, Texas A&M University System.
Symptoms of the disease include increased temperature and blisters in the mouth and soles of feet. Animals become dehydrated and lose weight, he said.
“Human infection can occur in areas where the disease is prevalent,” Armstrong added. “A veterinarian should be contacted immediately if the disease is suspected.”
A laboratory diagnosis is required to accurately identify the disease. The symptoms are similar to foot and mouth disease, he noted.
The disease was first reported to federal officials in June. The majority of infected animals are in Colorado, but Arizona and Utah have also reported cases.
“Reports from New Mexico indicate thousands of horses and hundreds of cattle have been affected,” Armstrong noted. “Canada has requested that the U.S. Department of Agriculture not certify cattle, horses, sheep, goats or pigs from states with the reported disease.”
