New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 12, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels Herald-Zlff'ft/np Tuesday, April 12,1983    3 The swing of things bv Ci'Hfv Ken Molthan takes advantage of recent sunny weather to hit some golf balls at a field near his house. Sunday and Monday were fine days for outdoor sports, but the unpredictable spring weather brought clouds and drizzle back Tuesday morning County modifies rules on insurance coverage By JACQUELINE SMITH Staff writer The qualifications were limited Monday for those former county employees who wish to still obtain insurance coverage under the county’s group policy. According to Commissioners Court action, former employees who have worked for the county for at least eight years may remain under the county's coverage providing that they pay their own premiums. But employees dismissed for "violating county policy,” or who now have other full-time jobs or who are selfemployed, are not eligible for county coverage. Also according to the motion made by County Judge Fred Clark, employees who have insurance coverage available through their spouse’s employment “or another group hospital policy" may not be covered under county policies The action taken Monday — which will not be retroactive — does not drastically change previous practices. In the past, however, those former employees who were selfemployed could still obtain county coverage if they paid their own premiums. The change in policy came out of the court’s concern that some former employees might take higher risk John (than the county jobs they had held) which would boost the county’s group rates. "These people pay their own premiums,” said Commissioner J I. "Jumbo” Evans. "But their (accident and hospitalization experiences! are still factors on our (county’s insurance I rate." County Attorney Bill Kenner expressed similar thoughts. "There will be employment risks i with former employees now self-employed i not considered by the group here," he said. "It could skyrocket our rates and you need to consider whether you want to incur that i additional) liability for the county,” Kenner added. In other business Monday, the court considered three county subdivisions. Among them was Kolling Hills Subdivision, Unit 3, whose master plan was given approval. This subdivision, located west of Startz-ville, consists of 212 lots of one-half acre or larger and will have a central water system. In moving that the court approve the master plan, Evans asked the county sanitarian to look at lots located in the county’s 100-year flood plan to see if they need to be slightly larger than one-half acre. The court also accepted the roads in unit I of Northwoods Subdivision, located at Canyon Lake in precinct I, into the county’s unit road system. County Roads Administrator Bodo Dietert recommended that they be accepted and Evans noted that Wife won't invite in-iaws to house By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: I nearly wept as I read the letter from the 60-year-old widow who felt "insulted” when the gentleman with whom she had spent a lovely evening (their first date) asked if he could "stay over.” She described herself as "attractive,” but, Abby, what good is a pleasing appearance in a woman who has no heart? Here was a lovely widower who enjoyed himself as much as she and didn’t want the evening to end. She could have taken his hand in hers and said, "Thank you for wanting to ‘stay over,' but I have never spent the night with a man I did not deeply love — and you and I have only just met." That would have told him how highly she valued romantic intimacy and sent him home with his confidence and self-respect intact. I am almost certain that he would have returned swiftly with flowers, candy and the most gentlemanly conduct, for most men long for love as much as women do. To ask for affection is no crime. But to refuse it so callously should be. SAN    MARINO    LADY DEAR ABBY: We have our son and daughter-in-law to our home for dinner at least twice a month. We love having them and their children, and when they leave, my son always says, “Come to visit us.” I usually say, "Tell us when and we will be there.” I notice my daughter-in-law never says anything but "Bye.” I know our son would love to have us in his home, but we’re never invited. Occasionally they take us out to a nice restaurant, but we’d so much prefer to be entertained in their home. They have a very nice place. We dropped by around Christmastime (uninvited) to drop off their gifts, and they invited us in and seemed happy to see us. I like my daughter-in-law. She’s a nice, quiet girl. She even paid me a compliment recently by saying, "You have never been an interfering mother-in-law in the 17 years I ve been married to your son." What is wrong. Abby? Solve this problem and I will call you a genius. WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Some people cannot handle entertaining at home. The very thought of it is so upsetting that they don’t e\en want to make the effort. I suspect that is the case with your daughter-in-law. I’m sure she likes you, so accept the restaurant dinners with good grace and don’t let it bother you. DEAR ABBY: Keep right on saying, “You’ve never too old.” Here’s what happened in my family: When my greatgrandmother Alice was a young girl, she fell in love with Ben. Her father opposed the match, so a brokenhearted Ben left town. He wrote to Alice faithfully, but her father intercepted the letters. Thinking Ben had forgotten her, Alice married a man of her father’s choice and raised a family. Many years later, when Alice was a widow, she noticed a young man at church who looked strikingly like her old childhood sweetheart. She asked him his name, and sure enough, he was Ben’s son! He told Alice that his father was now a widower, and to make a long story short, Alice and Ben got together. They realized they were still in love and wanted to marry. Both families were against it ("You’re too old,” they said), so Alice and Ben eloped'. Alice was 80 and Ben was 81.

Final plat approval was granted to this location in March, 1981. The easement is needed, according to Monday’s discussion, to make county road l.ake Island Drive "line up properly" with Kings Point Drive, a subdivision road. Following    a presentation by local attorney John Dierksen, who represented subdivision owners, Clark instructed Dierksen to "get us an easement deed and then we’ll take it from there." The court was scheduled to open bids for a civil defense vehicle, but due to a problem in the legal advertisement the bid opening will be reset for a later date, Clark said. BY STELLA WILDER TUESDAY. APRIL 12 Born today, you come very close to being a perfectionist. You demand a great deal of yourself, and almost as much of others. Your involvements are many and varied — with the result that vou're, at times, actually working against yourseu as you attempt to succeed in one activity that by its very nature causes failure in another. Your ability to distinguish between good work and bad — and it is well-developed, indeed — does not influence you for or against your friends. In personal matters, you follow your heart. A hard worker, you are not an obsessed one. You believe in time off and see to it that you "get away from it all" periodically. You have a generous nature and. although you expect much of others, you always sympathize if and when they cannot meet your demands. Also born on this date are: Ann Miller, dancer; Hardy Kruger, actor. To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph.
