Dec With Martin were his wife Catheri na nee his stepdaughter Catherina and four small children Anna Martin John George and the baby Elizabeth They traveled first to Indianola then by oxdrawn wagon to New Braunfels This trip took several months and many immigrants became ill and died along the way Mr Dittmar also became ill but thought he would get better if he could make it as far as New Braunfels Instead his condition worsened and he became weaker and weaker On Aug 17 1846 he was given the Lutheran last rites of com munion and four days later on Aug 21 he died Martins illness is thought to be the result of a cholera epidemic which claimed hundreds of other victims at that time sometimes wiping out entire families before it ran its course These victims including Martin were car ried out to the cemetery daily and placed in an open mass grave Wood en markers places on the gravesite were destroyed by a prairie fire some years later After Martins untimely death Mrs Dittmar and her children traveled on to Fredericksburg where they suffered many hardships includ ing the death of the baby Elizabeth soon after their arrival At the 1995 Dittmar reunion at Lan da Park June 25 it was decided to go ahead with a project to place some type of permanent marker near Mar tins gravesite This will also mark the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Dittmar family in Texas when Texas was still a republic Pedernales Electric Coop gives energysaving tips Members of Pedernales Electric Cooperative Inc PEC can take steps now to keep September and October electric bills under control As Central Texans begin to feel the effects of soaring summer tempera tures remember that air conditioning units can account for up to 50 per cent of home energy use during the peak heat months of July and August As a result electric bills could go up considerably this fall if you do not take steps now to avoid heavy use of electricity during the summers hottest days PEC electric bills for electricity used by members in July and August will not arrive until September and October Members who plan ahead may be pleasantly surprised when summer cooling bills arrive PEC offers the following sugges tions to help conserve energy and keep cooling bills under control while stay ing comfortable this summer Set thermostats wisely For every degree above 78 that you set your thermostat you can cut about 3 per cent from energy use for that period Use ceiling fans or room fans Circulated air from ceiling fans can make a room feel 4 to 6 degrees cool er By using ceiling fans you can set your thermostat at higher tempera tures but stay cool as temperatures soar Turn the thermostat to a higher temperature before leaving home for more than two hours If a unit is turned off completely it may use more ener gy to cool off when you return home Close curtains or window shades before leaving home for the day espe cially on the sunny side of the house to minimize the effects of heat from sunlight in the home For longterm benefits plant shade trees in critical areas to save up to 10 percent on cool ing bills Check the Seasonal Energy Effi ciency Ratio SEER on your air con ditioning system Consider replace ment of inefficient systems with a heat pump or other energy efficient system for longterm savings on cool ing and heating costs Change or clean the filter in your cooling unit once monthly for opti mum efficiency Use lowheat cooking equipment microwaves outdoor grills or slow cookers whenever possible and pre pare foods at cooler times of day Check around home for air leaks Seal any leaks you can fix yourself Finally remember PECs billing schedule and plan ahead to avoid costly summer cooling bills TODAYS CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 1 Swiftly 6 and potatoes 10 Alaskan city 14 Mexican

DryCool starts building in Selma Munters Division manufacturer of desiccant based dehumidification air condi tioning systems has begun con struction of a new foot office and plant on Lookout Road in Selma just north of San Antonio Scheduled for Dec com pletion the new building will be sit uated on 10 acres near the compa nys current site The facility will have the capability of expanding to square feet The developer of the project is Dolan Contractors a compa ny that specializes in designing and building manufacturing facilities and distribution centers The Munters DryCool Division was formed at its present location in January of 1991 By the fall of 1991 production of the desiccant based HVAC systems began in the foot manufacturing plant We have outgrown the building were in and with our 40 percent growth rate last year and the same expected this year we are in need of more plant capacity as we increase the number of Larry Klekar said Munters DryCool cur rently employs 50 manufacturing and office personnel in Selma Our DryCool Division has been very successful in developing busi ness with expanding retail and super market chains such as WalMart and KMart and the HEB
