The wreck haf)p<‘n(*d af^out K):OS <i.m, jUSt south of Watson Lane in the southbound lanes across the highway Irom Texas Ski Ranch. New Braunfels fire Department vt'hicles hlotk(‘fi all south-fiounrl lanes ot traftic .»s c rews c learc'd the wreckage and two helKO()ters landed to whisk away the patients. The tir(> of a pickup truck blew out as the truck's driver followc*d family membt^rs in a sport utility vehicle headed from the Round Rock area to S( hlitterbahn, said ir(K)per Randy Vick of the Texas Department ot Public Safety' in New Braunfels. He said the SDV's driver checked the rearview mirror and saw the truck having trouble. The truck's driver j)ulled onto the left shoulder and the SUV did the same, Vick said. But the truck didn't stop and smashed into the rear of the SUV. Vick said the truck's driver — a juvenile — lost consciousness and three other children also were hurt. The young driver and two others were flown to Dell Children's Hospital in Austin. A fourth child was driven to th(' same hospital, Vick said. Capt. Mike Wehman of New Braunfels Fire Department said two unrelated motorists drove the remainder of the family members to the hosf)ital to be with the children. We-hman said the patients should rt‘cover from their injuries. HIDDEN HISTORY NAME OF SUBJECT Mission Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe). Exact location unknown. BACKGROUND From 1756-58, Franciscan friars operated a small mission in the New Braunfels area named Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe The mission grew out of the ill-fated Mission San Francisco Xavier de Horcasitas in Milam County. After a friar was killed by a soldier, the Franciscans abandoned Horcasitas and moved with some Mayeye Indians first to San Marcos River, then to the Guadalupe River. The new temporary mission was called San Francisco Xavier de Guadalupe The Mayeye Indians subsequently refused to join Mission San Antonio de Valero (later The Alamo) They remained here and Mission San Francisco Xavier de Guadalupe was renamed Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe The Guadalupe mission, writes Herbert Eugene Bolton in "Texas in the Middle Eighteenth Century," was a "feeble" mission about 15 leagues from San Antonio. It encompassed five springs, arable fields, timber, two priests and 41 Mayeye Indians Also living here were four Spanish families, according to Texas State Historical Association In 1758, because of missionary politics and Comanche threats, the mission was closed. There are no ruins or remains. The exact location in New Braunfels is a mystery The mission's existence is noted by two historical markers one in Landa Park on Gazebo Circle near Comal Springs and the second on State Highway 46 in front of HEB. The Landa Park marker, proposed by Comal County Historical Survey Committee and erected in 1968, states that the mission was established "at or near present New Braunfels." The Hwy 46 monument, erected for the 1936 Texas Centennial, stands on "the approximate site of the mission." New Braunfels historian Alton Rahe thinks Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe might have been located near HEB — the hill above the store is known as Mission Hill and Mission Hill is mentioned in "Roemer's Texas," written by Dr Ferdinand Roemer in 1845-47. Everett Fey, also a local historian, speculates that the missionaries needed the flat land atop the Edwards Plateau to farm and graze cattle. He believes the mission was located somewhere between the two historical markers, "between the top of the (Mission) hill and Panther Canyon." But no one really knows.

ERCOT, NBU urge energy conservation The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (LRCOT) is asking the public and businesses to continue th(> effort to conserve electric ity throughout the week and 3ossibly into next wc^ek )ec ause high demand on the statewide electric grid. FRCOT manages the statewide elt*ctric grid an(f can order utilities to shed load if they determine that electric reserves are dipping to critic ally low levels. It this happens, NBU is under obligation to meet the specified amount within a matter ot minutc^s. Sometimes, as in the case during the f i‘l). 2 winter emergency, it rerjuires a tem[)orary service interruption to bring the load down to the level that ERCOT has set. NBU is asking electric customers to voluntarily curtail electric usage as much as f)ossible, (‘specially during the peak usage hours ol 2-8 p.m. Keeping air conditioning units set at 78 degrec^s, de aying use of appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers until late evening or early morning, and unf)lu^ing i)r turning off unusedelec-tric items will all help maintain the statewide electric reserves and help avoid outages.
