Hat Ketchum back in Gruene tonight
Hal Ketchum returns to Gruene Hall tonight after his recent move from New Braunfels to Nashville.
Ketchum’s single, “Small Town Saturday Night,” recently reached number one on the country Billboard chart after spending a number of weeks in the top ten.
When Ketchum moved to Texas in 1981, he settled near Gruene and found himself draw to the thriving local music scene centered at historic Gruene Hall.
“The night I was moving into the house I'd bought there, I heard live music from somewhere in the distance, got into my truck ami drove into Gruene and discovered this dance hall,” Ketchum recounted in a biography for Curb Records. “I started going there regularly. On Sunday afternoons, they had great writers like
Butch Hancock, Lyle Lovett and Townes Van Zandt come in and play. It made me concentrate on playing guitar and writing songs — that place became a real school for me.”
The singer-songwritcr’s Nashville excursions have resulted in his signing with publisher Forerunner Music. Ketchum’s latest album for Curb, “Past the Point of Rescue,” has been hailed by critics as one of uncommon excellence.
Ketchum has not played in the area for about two months. Cover charge for tonight’s performance is $6. Gruene Hall is in the Gruene Historic District at 1281 Gruene Road, with easy access from Texas Highway 46/Loop 337 or U.S. Highway 81.

Pets locked in cars sometimes rely on kindness of strangers
DEAK ABBY: I just returned from my vacation and had to write this letter first thing. While vacationing in a national park, I saw several dogs locked in closed (or almost ck»sed>car8 while their owners toured museums, rode the tram, ate lunch, etc.
Abby, I recall reading in your column the facts about how fast a car heats up when left locked up on a hot summer day. Please publish these facts again soon. Maybe it w ill cause some thoughtless vacationers to reconsider before taking their pets on vacation with them.
While they may think it’s the kind or convenient thing to do, they should decide while planning their vacation whether they are willing to leave at lea^t two car windows partially open when they stop for even a few minutes. If not, they should leave their pet with a relative or friend, have a neighbor care for it at home, or board it iii a kennel. These are by far the kindest options for people who really k>%e their pets.
And ifother tourists, sight-seeing in a national park, should observe a pet locked in a car with less-than-adequate ventilation, they should report it to the park ranger.
CONCERNED TOURIST FROM STILWELL, KAN
DEAK CONCERNED: Thank you for a timely reminder to wellmeaning, but thoughtless pet owners.
The Animal Protection Institute, P.O. lion 22505, Sacramento, Calif. 95822, sells cards that may be placed under the windshield wiper. They sell for only $3 per IOO cards.
The message on the card reads: “YOCH DOG MAY BE DYING! We understand you meant to be kind by taking your dog with you today, but you could be risking your pet’s life.
“On a hot summer day, the inside of a car heats very quickly. On an average 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside your car — with the windows slightly opened — will reach 102 degrees in IO minutes. In 30 minutes it will go up to 120 de
grees. On warmer days, it will go even higher.
“A dog’s normal body temperature is 101.5 to 102.2 degrees Farenheit. A dog can withstand a body temperature of 107 to 108 degrees Farenheit for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage — or even death. The closed car interferes with the dog’s normal cooling process, that is, evaporation through panting.
“If your dog is overcome by heat exhaustion, you can give immediate first aid by immersing him or her in cold water oiUil body temperature is lowered."
