According to police reports, a 47-year-old Schertz man was stopped on Farm-to-Market Road 311 waiting to turn left onto Texas 46 when a white Ford pickup truck, driven by a Bandera man, and carrying a trailer entered FM 311. “We had left McCoy’s and were on our way to Pipe Creek,” the Bandera man said. The trailer, carrying lumber and sheet metal, came loose from the truck and hit the Schertz man’s GMC Suburban head on. The boards broke through the windshield and engine compartment. “The ‘jaws of life’ were used to remove him from the car,” Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Rick Alvarez said. First on the scene were Joye, Brad and Travis Wuest of Natural Bridge Caverns. Having first aid and CPR training, they stopped to administer fust aid as the Bandera man and his passenger removed boards from the suburban.

Hicks brought nine exotic baby animala for guests to see. While showing the animals, he talked about each one, presenting facts and stories. “I think the most interesting part about the shows are the questions and responses from kids,” Hicks said. Zoo Show, now 3 1/2 years old, has IOO exotic animals in its collection. Hicks and his three employees not only take care of the animals, but Hicks does educational talks as well. During every show, Hicks allows children and adults to touch certain animals. He hopes to open an exhibit and visiting area at the Zoo Show in the fall. “I take the animals to schools, birthday parties, businesses and other places,” Hicks See SHOW/3A Early morning rain, lawmen do little to slow tubers down By Chris Crews Staff Writer Neither rain, flood nor threat of law enforcement can keep the masses off the Guadalupe River on Memorial Day weekend. A mid-morning storm delayed but did not deter the thousands that came from all over the state to raft and tube down the river. People from Dallas and Houston said they made the trip to New Braunfels and Comal County despite reports of increased law enforcement and the October 1998 flood. Al Zator, owner of Little Ponderosa Outfitters on River Road since 1992, said the campgrounds were full but die rentals had been off just a little bit from last year. "I think this would have been about as good a we’ve had but the rain this morning slowed us down a little bit I think with a nice sunny day (Sunday) we could have a wing-dinger,” Zator said. The Water Oriented Recreation District provided more than $150,000 so the Comal County Sheriff’s Office could provide increased law enforcement on the river with special emphasis on holiday weekends.

Area law enforcement officials said unsuitable behavior was at a minimum thus far. ;
