Old Ideas In A New World
Heritage Exhibit to shine a light on the way things were
By CRAIG HAMMETT
Since 1972, the New Braunfels Civic Center has hosted a Heritage Exhibit in conjunction with Wurstfest.
The Heritage Society of New Braunfels sponsors the event and includes the participation of the Conservation Society, Sophicnburg Museum & Archives, and Comal County Genealogical Society
This year’s theme is “Old Ideas in a New World,” features exhibits displaying various crafts used when settlers first came to the city.
These exhibits show such items as tinsmiths, blacksmiths, leather works, saddle shops, quilt makers, etc., all of whom had
particular skills or crafts valuable to the makeup of a community.
New Braunfels Smokehouse and Carlton’s will have a display showing how sausage was made the “old-fashioned way.”
“We’re going to show how people used to make sausage, stuffing it by hand," said Bret Campbell of Carlton’s. “Some still do”
The Heritage Exhibit will include numerous displays with mannequins and the tools representing these craftsmen and women and their shops.
“They brought their skills with them to set up a new community,’’ said Mary Anne Hollmig, one of many volunteers helping to set up the exhibit. “These places offered people a place to catch up on local news.”
The different shops were centers of town activity. Each craftsman had a specific area of expertise and often was the only person in town with that certain expertise.
The exhibit will cover the entire expanse of the Civic Center and take from 30 minutes to an hour to tour. Tickets are S2 in advance at the Chamber office and S3 at the door, .50 cents for children 6-12. The exhibit will be open IO a m. to 5:30 p.m. daily through Wurstfest.
A preview gala will be held Thursday night featuring a food buffet and drinks. The event will also serve to name the local person honored with a dedication for this year’s exhibit, which runs throughout Wurstfest. Tickets are SI 5 for the preview gala.

County selected to receive federal food, shelter funds
Comal County has been chosen to receive S23.814 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the area.
The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
A Local Board was made up of representatives of non-profit emergency assistance organizations which will determine how the ftinds awarded to Comal County Commissioners Fund are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service organizations in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these fonds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program.
Non-profit organizations are urged to apply for the money.
Lezartouts property rights on local visit
By TECLO J. GARCIA
Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor Tex Lear said on Friday state government should compensate land owners for environmental policies.
Speaking on the Comal County Courthouse steps as part of his South-Central Texas swing, Lear said the issue of property rights concerns and most Texans and he suggested that there be a legislative requirement that anytime the government does something that devalues a citizens property it must make up for that.
“I draw the line at as little as 25 percent reduction in value or $10,000, which ever is the lesser amount,” he said. ‘This requires the government to compensate so that it is not the private property owner who bares the burden of the increased ^pending”
Lezar said if the government wants to save certain endangered species, then the government should pay the property
owners for whatever expenses they incur.
Lezar also said he has good chance of winning the election over the popular Lt. Governor Bob Bullock.
“The most recent poll taken before we went up on television in Houston and Dallas showed us only 14 points behind him with 22 percent undecided,” he said “It showed us very close for people who know us and showed mc with very low negatives and him with very high negatives," he said.
“The problem with career incumbents is that they get a little too cozy with special interests.’’
Lezar attacked Bullock’s position with an Austin law firm for which the Lt Governor pulled in over SI 50,000 According to an Austin press report, Bullock served as an advisor to the firm.
The Dallas native, who served as assistant attorney general in charge of legal policy to U.S. Attorney General William Smith in 1985, said Bullock was not physically fit to be Lt. Governor and questioned if Bullock was healthy enough to debate him.
“Well he is either physically incapacitated, as to some extent he has suggested, or he’s just afraid,” he said.
Lezar said another reason Bullock has ignored his requests for debate is that he has become arrogant after so many years in office
Even though Bullock has received many endorsements from both Democrats and Republicans, Lezar said he can still beat Bullock because he is beginning to be better known and his ideas understood.
Lezar is a graduate of the University of Texas Law School and a graduate of Yale University in 1970
