A fatal truck rollover in Smithson Valley turned into a puzzling triple murder yesterday The Comal County Sheriffs department is looking for clues in the deaths of Stanley Lindsey and Pennye Lindsey both 43 and son Sheldon Lindsey 18 Sheriffs deputies got a report of losse live stock at about 8 yesterday morning Deputy Bob Tinnin dealt with the livestock call then a citizen stopped him and said a

pumping limits By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Mandatory reductions for primary users of the Edwards Aquifer were declared almost two weeks ago and officials with the Edwards Under ground Water District may soon be facing the question of when it should return to voluntary conservation The board of directors for the Edwards Under ground Water District received an update of the Demand Management Plan DMP at their meet ing on Tuesday Mike Albach the districts Divi sion Manager for Planning and Environmental Management said Stage I of the DMP which calls for 10 percent voluntary reductions was declared on Feb 12 1996 Two weeks later Stage II which is 15 percent mandatory reduc tions was declared Albach said district staff will now start determining if primary users are in compliance Well begin to compare their targets which are determined using their baselines to their actual usage and determine said Albach It sounds easier than it However the district may soon have to address the question of whether or not to stay at Stage II Albach said the mandatory reductions at Stage II go into effect when spring flow at Comal Springs drops to 225 cubic feet per second He told the board that as of Monday the 10 day average at the Comal Springs was 225 cfs He said if the flow goes up to 226 the district may have to revert back to Stage I voluntary reductions Were at 225 cfs right now It may go above that or it may go below said Albach I dont know that our guidelines are flexible in that In other business steps are being taken to see what can be done to protect endangered species if spring flow levels fall below the take level Bexar County Chair Carol Patterson said the Fish and Wildlife Service has a contingency plan which would call for catching as many fish as possible and taking them to a refuge Patterson said the Special Committee on Endangered Species wants to look at what else can be done The board approved allowing the committee members and district staff to work with the Low er Colorado River Authority and New Braun fels Utilities to look at the well situation at Comal including well history and loca tion It is possible a well could pump water into Landa Lake if spring flows drop too low This is to look and see if theres anything that can be save the fish they wont be able to catch to protect the larger gene said Patterson The key well being looked at will be dne owned by LCRA according to Patterson off the road through a fence and rolled over in a grove of trees a witness said The truck came to rest upside down about 100 feet from the road according to the witness Stanley Lindsey wasnt in the truck but was found dead at the accident scene Lind seys truck was cold when Sheriffs deputies found it indicating that the accident had occurred some time ago according to Texas Department of Public Safety officer Randy Wells Lindsey worked for Union Pacific Rail road Wells said When Wells and DPS Sergeant John Ritter officials went to the Lindsey residence on Angle Pass to notify the next of kin they found the bodies of Penny Lindsey and her son Sheldon both shot once in the head Sheriffs investigators investigated the acci dent scene while detectives went to the funer al home where Mr Lindsey was taken Dur ing their preliminary investigation they found that Stanley Lindsey had apparanly also been shot in the head It was unclear at that time whether he had died of injuries from the crash or from the bullet wound according to Sheriff s reports The three bodies were taken to the Travis County Coroner where autopsies were to be performed this morning according to the coroners office The Texas Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory and the Texas Rangers will be assisting the Comal County Sheriffs Department in the investigation

The effect was more heartwrenching than any report on the evening news that 16 of them had been slain This small town in Scotland was grieving today for the 16 kindergarten students and their teacher

there in total shock with bullet wounds to their limbs and bodies unable to cry out or John McEwen was quoted as telling The Sun newspaper Residents of this closeknit bucolic town at the edge of the Scottish Highlands placed flowers cards teddy bears and other toys on the sidewalk outside the school where frightened parents had waited Wednesday to find out if their children were among the dead A doctor treating the wounded at Stirling Royal Infirmary learned that one of her own children was among the dead said Dr Jack Beattie He declined to identify the woman Police said disgruntled former youth worker Thomas Hamil ton walked through the schools front entrance just after armed with four handguns He headed through the din ing room past the assembly hall and into the gym There he opened fire and killed 11 girls and five boys all aged 5 and 6 and their teacher Gwenne Mayor 45 The ambulance man said Mayor looked as though she had been trying to shield the children from the bullets She
