New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 26, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung g Friday, September 26,1997 □ 3AOvercoming adversity is not restricted to males Dear Abby: I am a 15-year-old girl who read your column about “Winning Against The Odds.” I was surprised to see the names of only five women included, so I decided to add to your list of names. You once printed a list of African Americans who were bom into a society filled with heavy prejudice. Well, that same prejudice was once practiced ‘against women. Women who wanted careers or die same rights as men were shunned I offer a list of IO women who overcame various hardships: • Rejected by medical schools in London because of her gender, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson became the first female member of the British Medical Association. • Bom into poverty was author Louisa May Alcoa. • Struck with Marfan’s syndrome was Flo Hyman, who won a silver medal in Olympic volleyball. She is the namesake of the Flo Hyman Award. • Orphaned at age IO was former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt • Raised as a slave was evangelist and reformer Sojourner Truth. • Ridiculed, shunned and arrested for standing up for their beliefs were suffragettes Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. • Orphaned at 13 was Oksana Bailli, Olympic figure skating champion. • Denied admission to most medical schools and blind in one eye was Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman in the United States to earn a medical degree. • Incapacitated for a decade as a result of a spinal injury and a lung ailment was Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet and feminist. Alison in Florida Dear Alison: My column titled “Winning Against the Odds” inspired many responses. Read on for another: Dear Abby: One need not go back to Abe Lincoln or Albert Einstein to find someone who succeeded despite adversity. One need only go to the family next door, or perhaps one down the street There are millions of us who were bom into abject poverty during the Depression, who lived on bread and potatoes, whose parents couldn't afford to send us to the dentist, who never owned a suit until we were adults, who attended a one-room country grade school with no electricity or indoor plumbing, but who still managed to learn a skill or work and complete our education. Now we live in the 'burbs and have sent our kids through college. I’ve been here and done that. And it can still be done. All it takes is hard work, perseverance and forgoing instant gratification. You have to figure out where you are going and how you are going to get here — and stop whining and using the excuse that you are a victim Calvin S. Holm, Thiensville, Wis. Dear Mr. Holm: No discouitesy intended — but you said a mouthful, Cal! Confidential to Broke Mom's Heart In Baton Rouge: Don't be so sure your mother won't forgive you. Honore de Balzac wisely said, “The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always discover forgiveness.'' * Apologize, and explain that you have learned your lesson.

A new law levies tough penalties for anyone under 21 caught with any detectable trace of alcohol in their system. "This is a serious new law that we hope will serve as a deterrent for young people," Sen. Roy ce West, D-Dallas, who sponsored the legislation, said Thursday. "This law makes a difference, but it makes the most difference when people are aware of it." The state's "zero-tolerance" law went into effect Sept. I and says that underage drinkers will face criminal penalties and the automatic suspension of their license. The crime is a Class C misdemeanor on the first offense, punishable by a maximum fine of $300 and an automatic driver’s license suspension tor 60 days. The law eliminates a provision billowing people under 21 to drive with a Wood-alcohol content of 0.07 and replace it with a zero-tolerance standard.
