The multicolored snails grow to about 2 inches and eat aquatic plants that are used as refuge by some species of fish, including the endangered fountain darter that lives in the springs. Native to South America, the snails do not naturally grow and spread north of the equator unless artificially introduced, said Tom Arsuffi, an aquatic ecologist with Southwest Texas State University. "They’re considered to be a nuyor threat to biological diversity,” Arsuffi said. The snails are sold in pet stores and may have been dumped in Landa Lake by the owner of a fish aquarium.

The story, written by David McLe-more of The Dallas Morning News, was published in the Chicago paper Aug. 16. Published with the story was a “locator map” showing the location of New Braunfels in relation to the state’s larger cities and to its interstate highways. The lead on the story says, “Folks living in rural serenity by the Guadalupe River never thought they’d see people pay to climb onto a bright blue platform 120 feet above the river and leap into the air with only glorified rubber bands as a lifeline. “They certainly never expected it to happen in their neighborhood.” Tile Dallas Morning News writer quotes Dan Moore, identifying him as “a retiree from Houston,” and his wife, Carol. “We can see them and we can hear them,” Mrs. Moore is quoted in the Chicago paper as having said. “The noise is just terrible. Fine for a carnival maybe, but not here.” The Dallas writer says “about 150 people a day line up on weekends to jump while 50 to 75 a day try it during the week.” A spokesman for Bungy Over Texas last week told a New Braunfels civic group that figure is IOO people a day on weekends. Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer is quoted in the story as saying Bungy Over Texas has not posed any serious law enforcement problems other than traffic problems and noise complaints. And Bremer is reported to have said that it is uncertain whether gun shots fired at the Bungy Over Texas platform July 4 were intentional or accidental. County Commissioner J.L. “Jumbo” Evans is quoted as having said the county has sought state help in determining who may have jurisdiction over bungee jumping. ‘Texas counties have no zoning authority. So we’ve asked for help,” Evans is quoted as saying. And a spokesman for the Texas Attorney General’s office told the writer that the issue is “not one we’re involved in.” Evans also is quoted as saying, “People joke about it a lot in the coffee shops, but I doubt anyone feels it’s a substantial contribution to the community.” The writer says he was unable to reach Bungy Over Texas owners Susie Simpson and Robert Weeden, but says they earlier told officials they have put about $1 million into improvements on the acre plot they bought earlier in the year. The story in the Chicago newspaper ends by quoting homeowner Moore. “I don’t blame the kids. Hell, it looks like fun to them. I just don’t understand why they had to come put that thing in a residential area. “You know, they want to join the homeowners’ association. Now isn’t that just the most galling thing you’ve ever heard?” Dear Abby On roady husband driving wife crazy he said. Their introduction to the lake may ultimately threaten the diverse wildlife species of nearby Comal Springs, Arsuffi said. Mclani Skalbert, a graduate student working on the project, said the snails first appeared in Landa Lake around 1964 and since have proliferated. As many as 2 million to 3 million may now live in the lake’s 14 acres, she said. Several graduate students last week marked groups of the snails with different colors of fingernail polish and deposited them in pre-marked areas of the lake. Then, over a 36-hour period, students dove back into the lake hourly to record the extent of the snails’ migration and the amount of plant life they ate. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Abby is on a two-week vacation. Following is a selection of some of her favorite past letters.) DEAR ABBY: My problem is my husband’s driving. Whenever another motorist breaks one of the highway courtesy rules and cuts in front of my husband, or passes him when another car is coming in the opposite direction, my husband has to get back at him. He’ll pull up real close to him, or he’ll immediately pass him to let him know that he is not going to let him get away with anything. Sometimes he doesn't like the way a truck driver is driving, so heil start playing games with him. I get scared half to death and beg him not to take such foolish chances, but he insists that he’s going to “teach them a lesson.” We’ve had a few minor scrapes and several close calls, but nothing really serious yet. He argues that he is a safe driver, but to me, that’s not safe. What’s the matter with this 33-year-old baby? How can I make him realize that that kind of driving is not safe? WORRIED IN OREGON DEAR WORRIED: Part of my definition for maturity is... “the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.” Your husband isn’t mature. Just keep on nagging him to let the other guy have the road—unless he’s trying to beat him to the cemetery, and take you with him. DEAR ABBY: I am 29 years old, have seven kids and am pregnant again. I’ve never been married, but I’ve been engaged twice and I’ve been pinned several times. Don’t tell me I should have been more careful because I uas careful, but nothing seemed to work with me. A doctor put me on birth control pills and I followed his instructions, but I turned up pregnant anyway. The doctor said it must have been the fault of the pills, so lie put me on another brand, and the same thing happened. I’ve used other methods including marking the calendar, but they all failed. I must he one of those super fertile types. I don’t want any more kids after this, at least not until I get married, but I don’t want an operation to make me sterile because I might meet a guy who wants a kid of his own, and then what will I do? Is there a method of birth control that is positively sure? Don’t send me to a doctor. They’re the ones win) got me into this fix. FERTILE MYRTLE DEAR MYRTLE: When it comes to birth control, the only method that’s IOO percent effective is self-control. You don’t say who’s supporting all those kids, but if we taxpayers are, you owe it to your country to visit the Planned Parenthood people and turn off that baby machine.
