potentially deadly dives into the Guadalupe Our main mission today will be to see what pore we can do to keep people from diving off the Polasek The idea is to make whatever else we put there totally visible from the a person can see and In recent the City of Seguin tried to jplose off its small wedge of property in Comal County near Gruene by installing gates and locks at the intersection of toe citys private gravel road and FM But trespassers got past the gates by driving their vehicles down the railroad When railroad officials built a barrier that left only enough room for a Volkswagen to

signs Its solid rock out so that doesnt help us very Were going out there today to decide how and where we can do he Diving off the cliffs has become more of a Polasek since a housing sub division was
