arrested and some are even too young to legally drive A chart from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts shows that people under the age of 21 were arrested in 1994 for DWI Among those 10 were under the age of 10 The numbers for Comal County were not as staggering though In 1994 12 people under the age of 21 were arrested on DWI charges Two were 17 years old one was 18 years old five were 19 years old and four were 20 years old Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer said youth drinking and driving here is more likely during the tourist season However he said an increase in enforcement a limited num ber of bars and better supervision have helped to keep the numbers low Some things happen in metropolitan areas that dont hap pen in rural said Bremer I dont see how a 10year old can find himself in the position to sit around and get drunk he said Bremer said parents in Comal County seem to keep better supervision and control of their children Drug Awareness and Resistance Education DARE Officer Robert Parchman with the New Braunfels Police Department said a large part of the reason Comal County has lower numbers is the push for education He said the DARE Program has been going on for about five years and students who began in the program are now high school freshmen Theyre big on education here I think that has a lot to do with it said Parchman Therell always be some Youll never get to He said the numbers that do exist are a result of experi mentation and poor parenting He said some kids get older friends to buy them alcohol However he said a lot of kids get it from their parents who simply go out and buy it for them For a lot of kids we talk to their parents are their biggest role model They see their parents getting drunk and abusing alcohol so they think its said Parchman Parchman said the DARE Program is going a long way to prevent some of these kids from getting involved with drugs and alcohol The program is presented to kids in prekinder garden to seventh grade which means they hear the infor mation several times New Braunfels native named Kerrville Citizen of the Year A New Braunfels native was named Kerrvilles Citizen of the Year last week
