Richard Alvarez Kayla Gage said the accident, reported at 10:47 p.m. on Charter Oak Drive near the intersection with Cedar Drive, was caused when the driver lost control of his 2000 Toyota Sienna mini-van and veered Megan Herring off the south end of the street. The vehicle then struck a tree and flipped over onto its roof. The driver was going too fast for the steep road conditions, Alvarez said. The speed limit Charter Oak Drive, which Alvarez said is curvy, is 30 miles per hour. "The driver said the last time he looked down and checked he was going well over 50," Alvarez said.

On June 1, the Texas Department of Public Safety began introducing its "Texas Automated Vehicle Inspection System" or "TAVIS." The new system is primarily intended to automate the safety inspection process and reporting for DPS and the inspection stations, DPS officials said.

The need for such authority to order someone quarantined emerged as lesson No. 1 from the case of the Atlanta lawyer who went to Europe despite having a dangerous form of tuberculosis. "If we believe the patient has a strong intent to put others at risk, we need to have confi- instructions to detain him. C rials said a lone border agent made a bad decision.

An easy way to get to know the dozens of snakes found in the New Braunfels area is to take a quick trip to the Snake Farm. There you can (safely) view the various venomous and non-venomous snakes found in the area and learn to distinguish snakes you may find around town. If you do spot a snake around the yard, it's best to stay away, said Sean Franklin, senior animal control officer for City of New Braunfels Animal Control.
