New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 22, 1982, New Braunfels, Texas Leonard Mutchler doing what he does bestSafety-conscious Mutchler honored by Comal ISD By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: I read you faithfully in the Williamson (W. Va.) Daily News. In September 1981, your column was headed, “Full Steam Ahead for Railroad Widows.” It caught my eye because in 1930, when I was 16,1 married a railroad man. We were divorced in 1962. The article went on to give me such good news! It read: “Effective Oct. 1,1981, remarried widows and divorced wives, mothers and widows of railroad workers will become eligible for railroad annuities in the same dollar amount and under the same rules as Social Security.” I could hardly believe my eyes! Had I not read it in your column I would never have known about it. I had not been informed in any other way. You advised all women who qualified to write to the Railroad Retirement Board, 844 Rush St., Chicago, IU., 60611. I wrote immediately. After several letters back and forth, I was informed that I was eligible for benefits, and I have been receiving a monthly Ex-railroad wife grateful for data Comal Independent School District’s employee of the month for October, leonard Mutchler, worked out of the back of his truck in 1969. Now he is the shop foreman, and cares for over 50 school buses for CISD, along with two mechanics and a mechanic's helper. "There’s no more important job than to keep the buses safe for the kids. That’s the main reason I work here,” said Mutchler, who has been with CISD for 14 years. And the job keeps Mutchler hop* ping. Regular preventive maintenance is the majority of his work, but unusual things creep in, too. “It seems like when one water pump decides to go out, they all decide to go out," Mutchler added. Mutchler and his family are active in other school activities, too. His wife, Jo, is vice-president of the Canyon Music Boosters Club, and Mutchler regularly drives the equipment truck to the football games. They have three daughters — Michelle at Canyon High School, Karen at University of Texas in Austin, and Cindy at Southwest Texas State University. Harvey Pape, director of special services for CISD, said, "He has been an outstanding employee. He works hard, attends workshops to keep his skills up-to-date, and is very conscientious about keeping the buses in safe condition.”Weather Local temperatures Thursday's high was a cool 68 degrees, and Friday morning's low only 50. Today’s high will be near 70, and Saturday's high in the low-70s. Sunset today was predicted at 6:54 p.m., and sunrise Saturday at 7:37 a.m. Lake level Canyon I .ake is still dropping, down a fraction of a foot from Thursday’s level of 905.99 feet.

BEVINS, PIKEVILLE, KY. DEAR MILDRED: Don’t thank me. Thank Rep. James L.*Oberstar, 8th District, Minnesota, who wrote to inform me that the law had just been passed. He added, “And I can’t think of a better way of reaching the approximately 74,000 eligible women than through the Dear Abby column.” DEAR ABBY: I am a married woman (mid-30s), wife, and mother, who has always been overly modest. I just hate going to my doctor for a physical — the kind where you have to take everything off, get up on the examining table, etc. If I could do it myself, I certainly would. But Abby, I can check my own breasts for lumps, and I do. Would it be obnoxious of me to tell my doctor I’d rather do it myself? (Check my breasts.) I think he enjoys doing this, as I am oversized. MODEST TO A FAULT DEAR MODEST: It would be more foolish than obnoxious. In the first place, don’t assume that your doctor “enjoys” checking for lumps. He gets as much enjoyment from it as a grocer checking for an overripe cantaloupe. You are paying for his professional expertise; use it to the fullest. DEAR ABBY: I was glad to see that letter in your column about the couple who had separate bedrooms after IO years of marriage and didn’t care what people thought. I hung on to the edge of the bed for IO years before I had the courage to get twin beds, but it was either that or my sanity. My husband was a restless sleeper who thrashed around in his sleep like a wrestler. (He also snored like a bull.) We will be celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary soon. Now that the kids have left home we have separate bedrooms! Glory hallelujah! Now I can read until the wee hours, or watch late-night TV while he snores his head off across the hall. He likes a cool room and I like it warm, but believe it or not we are very compatible. And I still get a thrill when he whispers in my ear, “Your place or mine tonight?” STILL I/IVERS IN BUFFALOPublic records FELONY Justice of the Peace, Precinct I, (Harold Krueger, presiding) Boyce D.
