Woman pleads guilty to killing 5-month-old By Mark Koopmans The Herald-Zeitung CANYON I AKE — Instead of the usual flood of water, officials at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Canyon Lake office released a Hood of information during its annual public meeting Thursday. The event, held at the Canyon Lake Action Center in Sattler, was a way to update residents about the status of both the Canyon Dam and lake, Lake Manager Tim I lorn said to a group of about 20 people. “We've been holding this type of public information exchange for at least three years," I lorn said. “It’s a good way to communicate some of our recent projects and goals for the upcoming year." David Sandoval of Canyon Dike, who calls himself “a recent transplant from Galveston," said he attended the meeting to find out what is going on around his new hometown. "I bought the plot of land — where tile house I built now stands — more than 20 years ago,” Sandoval said. “I’m interested in finding out as much as I can, and where else to go than the source itself” The two authorized purposes of Canyon Lake and dam, located on the MORE INFORMATION The following information also was mentioned at Thursday's meeting; ■ As ofThursday, the release rate from Canyon Dam was at 580 cubic feet per second. ■ Recent repairs to the dam's spillway and spilling basin are complete. ■ All parks and boat ramps are open and are in excellent shape. ■ Construction continues on restroom facilities in Crane's Mill Park. ■ No boaters drowned on Canyon Lake in 2006. Guadalupe River at Mile 303, are flood control and water conservation on the Guadalupe River Basin. Secondary purposes are public recreation access and natural resources conservation of project lands and waters, I lorn said. “The dam was at a low drought point (this past) December," I lorn said. “But, after two recent significant rain events in March, we had a full open release of 5,000 (cubic feet per second) on April 26. That’s the first time we were able to do a full open since December 2004. It is just one example of how quickly things can go from drought to flood and back again.” When the flood pool level is 909 feet above sea level, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are responsible for the dam s operation. Normally, when the level dips below 909 feet, the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority controls the rights to the water in the conservation pool of the lake. I lowever, under a temporary agreement, GBRA currently is controlling the flow when the water reaches 910 feet. “For about nine years, GBRA has asked the Corps of Engineers for a tem porary, seasonal one-foot deviation in the elevation levels," Horn said. “The purpose of the extra foot of water is to assist downstream recreation. We’re now in the middle of a three-year study to possible make this temporary deviation from April to September permanent." After Horn finished his presentation, several park rangers discussed the agency’s volunteer and water safety programs. “Some of our goals for this year include completing the restroom under construction at Crane’s Mill Park and also work on other projects as funding becomes available,” Horn said. “Safe Boating Week is from May 19-28, so we ll continue to focus on promoting safe boating practices.” Mark Koopmans can be reached at mkoop-mans @ Budget writers agree to more CHIP funding AUSTIN (AP) — House and Senate budget writers approved almost $90 million on Thursday to make it easier for Texas families to enroll in the state’s low-cost health insurance for children of the working poor. Hie money is contingent on the passage of legislation to streamline enrollment in the Chil drens I lealth Insurance Isogram. The I louse overwhelmingly approved tile bill last month, and a key Senate committee OKed a similar version Ihursday. Under the legislation, families would have to re-enroll their children every year instead of every six months, and a 90-day wait period would be removed. The legislation also loosens an assets test used to verily tliat families were poor enough to qualify Conservatives in tile Senate have resisted the 12-month eligibility period, but adopted it in a committee meeting late Ihursday with a caveat—families at the top of the eligible income scale would be subject to automatic electronic income checks every six months to ensure they still qualify. CHIP families likely would n’t know that the income vert fication was happening, said Sen. Kip Averin, R-Waco, who offered the Senate compromise legislation.

Donna Michelle Forbes could be sentenced in July to life in prison, U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton said. She remains in federal custody. Forbes was baby-sitting the girl in July and could not get the infant to stop crying. She said she shook her, slammed her twice to the ground and punched her in the back, Sutton said. After picking up her daughter, the child’s mother noticed bruising on her face and realized she was struggling to breathe. She took her to the hospital, where she died two days later. A call to Forbes’ lawyer Thursday was not returned. * May I# - 23 ♦ MARKETPLACE 12 651 BUSINESS LP.
