The head of Mexico's state-run tourism board met with Texas officials Wednesday to try to prevent more broad, ominous-sounding bulletins such as one released in March, when the Texas Department of Public Safety bluntly told vacationers, "Avoid traveling to Mexico during Spring Break and stay alive."  Rodolfo Lopez-Negrete, of the Mexico Tourism Board, concedes that there are border cities that remain dan  gerous and should be avoided. He wants Texas to stop generalizing about the entire country.  "We believe that these travel alerts are too broad-based and making very blind statements about Mexico that do not reflect the reality," Lopez-Negrete said.  •PFRivtrCrcst  <5    1    omily    IXpuUil, p.a.

Outdoor burn bans in effect Wednesday in 193 of the state's 254 counties left little room for the chance of unintended fires by individuals playing with fireworks.  The Harris County Commissioners Court on Tuesday banned the sale or use of skyrockets with sticks and missiles with fins.  The ban, which affects unincorporated parts of Harris County, took effect immediately.  Fireworks are not legal in the city of Houston, which sits in Harris County.  The Bexar County Commission, meeting Tuesday in San Antonio, also banned the sale of the two aerial products..  Commissioners in Taylor County, in Abilene, also voted to ban the sale and use of aerial fireworks in all unincorporated areas of the West Texas county until drought conditions subside.  A dozen Taylor County volunteer fire department chiefs were asked about whether a ban was necessary.  The sale and use of consumer fireworks is banned until July 3 in unincorporated areas of Tom Green County.
