"The community is lucky to iave him," Ingram said, in the past, Ingram and ogue were volunteers at tradi-onal senior centers in Comal lounty. They decided to try : omething new at the urging  1  f older friends who were kx)k-ig for more active agendas— programs to satisfy the youth-M questing spirit of the fast-t tiring Baby Boom generation. After Zumwalt came through vith the meeting space, the >?t-unnamed senior center cpened in February. IXiringthe frst months, harsh winter vf ather kept people at home. "No one came during February and March," Ingram said, jut we’re up to about 16 to 20 ixht now."

On Friday, those rates were 56 tfs at Sattler and 270 cfs at Cojial Springs.  Narcus Schimank, the Caivon Lake manager for the U.SjCorps of Engineers, said thelake level has dropped steadily since last fall, when the iool registered 909.01 on Octk  Sdrimank said only 6.21 indis of rain have fallen at thelake in the past six morps. It’s cause for concern, but bke levels are far from reading the all-time low of 892.t) recorded on Sept. 8, 2009  "W’re low right now, and 2.73 bet is certainly not ideal,” Schinank said. “But we’re a longways from the all-time low,and that should b# encoiraging. We’re in one of thosqperiods where we’re just dry, nd it doesn’t require a wholi lot of rain in the upper basicto have enough runoff to brpg the lake back up to conspation pool."  Laof rain hasn’t closed ramps — yet  Thi low water rates haven’t dosel any of the lake’s 23 boat ramp. Only one — the No. 10 ram| at Cranes Mill Park — is cl(Sed, and that’s because of renovations that have close! the whole park for the sumfier.  “Tjey began construction in the park (on April 18),” Schihank said. “We’re anticipate they will finish by the earljpart of September, and we’n looking to have it open by (itober.”  Cijnes Mill will be upgraded fjom a primitive camp-groijid to a modem camping areajcomplete with water and elecficity hook-ups, RV pads and iheltered sites.  “Ijwill be a campground comparable to what we have at Pltter’s Creek,” Schimank  lie current drought con's, two county ramps — the (Jo. 5 ramp at the end of Can on Lake Forest, and the ramp in Comal Park  cou i be closed because of  /ater levels.  “1 ley couid both be closed if wc get into the 905 range,” Schi lank said. “But still, we’re a wa s from that.

"We want seniors to know that we need to hear your stories," Logue said. “Everyone has something beautiful to share.’’  In addition, Ingram and Logue believe all older people “need to help each other out — we won’t get younger, cuter or faster," Ingram said.  A grand opening is set for May 19 at the center. Featured will be renowned harpist I^aV-eme Peterson of Boerne Bella Musica, a harp-and-piano duo. Peterson, 84, “is the last remaining student of (harpist Carlos) Salzedo, who was considered the Jimi Hendrix of his time,” Ingram said.  I*art of the grand opening will be a name contest for the center. Ingram and I/)gue are looking for something bouncy, active and youthful — not just your usual "senior center.”  getting ready in case lake levels keep dropping. It is putting buoys in shallow areas to keep boats away and cautioning folks about the dangers that come with falling levels.  “Rocks, shoals, stumps, whatever it may be — as the levels go down, those tilings get closer to the surface and they present hazards,” Schimank said.  Canyon Dam  Schimank said there is no news regarding the replacement of two gate stem shafts at Canyon Dam, and that project appears headed into the summer months. Schimank said negotiations are still ongoing between the Corps and AOC Environmental, Inc. on costs associated with the project.  The project has been on hiatus since January, when damage to the first stem shaft led to the decision to replace both shafts at a cost exceeding the original $430,000 estimate. AOC and the Corps contracting office have been in talks since March, and the project — which was hoped to resume this month — is still on hold.  “Until they arrive on something that’s agreeable to both parties, we won’t know,” Schimank said. “The regional office is working to keep that process moving toward the next step, but until then, there’s no change in the current situation.”  When construction resumes, the dam’s water release rates will reduce in the mornings and increase in the evenings, affecting water flows on the Guadalupe River. In case of a flood, the unaffected gate will be able to release enough water from the lake, Schimank said.

MCCAIN WANTS INCREASED REBEL SUPPORT  BENG1 iA/J, Libya — U.S. Sen. lohn McCain called for increased military support for Libya's rebels Friday, including weapons, training and stepped-up airstrikes, in a full-throated endorsement of the opposition in its fight to oust Moammar Gadhafi.  In the Libyan capital, meanwhile, a senior official said government troops would step hack and allow local armed tribesmen to deal with rebels in the besieged city of Misrata. The action came a day after the U.S. began flying armed drones to bolster NATO airstrikes, and having the tribesmen take up the fight could make it harder for the Predators to distinguish them from Misrata's civilians or the rebels.  McCain said the United States and other nations should recognize the opposition's political leadership as the legitimate voice of the Libyan people.”  DOZENS KILLED IN BLOODIEST DAY OF UPRISING  BEIRUT — Syrian security forces fired bullets and tear gas Friday at tens of thousands of protesters across the country, killing at least 75 people in the bloodiest day of the monthlong uprising and signaling that the authoritarian regime was prepared to turn more ruthless to put down the revolt against President Bashar Assad.  Among the dead were a 70-year-old man and two boys ages 7 and 10, Amnesty International said. In the southern town of Izraa, a man ran carrying the body of a young hoy, whose hair was matted with blood from a gaping wound on his head, as another child wept and shouted, “My brother!” Footage of the scene was posted on the protest movement's main Facebook pace.  In other towns, protesters scattered for cover from sniper bullets, then dragged corpses through die streets. Mobile phone images showed the bodies lined up on the floor inside buildings.  TIMING OF RESIGNATION RAISES QUESTIONS  LAS VEGAS — U.S. Sen. John Ensign’s decision this week to resign marked a mysterious change of heart for the Nevada Republican, raising questions about what an ongoing Senate ethics probe has uncovered while also muddling the field of candidates for congressional seats now held by the GOP headed into a key election year.  leaders of the Senate Ethics Committee noted tersely that Ensign made the proper decision in turning in a letter of resignation amid their unfinished two-year probe of his conduct.  Ensign, 53, cited “wear and tear” on himself and his family in his announcement Thursday, which came nearly two years after lie acknowledged having had an extramarital affair with a former staffer.

After her father died, her mother “closed herself off. It was hard to get her to go anywhere ... once grief started, it was like a steamroller—it got worse and worse because she didn’t want to share it.”  Then her mother broke her  hip.  "From that point, she gave up,” Ixjgue said. “I saw her curl up and die.”  At local senior centers, "I see others do the same thing,” she said. "I want to get them out and make them feel their self-worth and see that they have so much to offer.” pother part of the new center’s agenda is a speaking pro-
