North to Alaska
Bob and Bobby Landrum, 19-year residents of Garden Ridge, salute their daughter’s adventuresome spirit.
Kelly Landrum, who was home for summer vacation, said it might seem paradox to spend the summer in Texas and the winter in Alaska, but that is the lifestyle she has chosen. The graduate of Canyon High School and the University of Texas at San Antonio teaches fifth grade in the school on Ketchikan, a small island in the Revil-lagigedo island chain off the southeast coast of Alaska. About 13,000 people
live there year round.
While the island has 31 miles of paved road, Bobby Landrum says the terrain is so hilly that there are only about 500 feet of flatland on the beaches. It is located 55 degrees 21 minutes north latitude but is not as cold as one might think — with two feet of snow on the ground, the temperature sinks only to zero degrees. The inland trade waters prevent colder temperatures.
The primary income of the small community is from fishing for halibut and salmon and the cutting and mill
ing of timber.
The Alaskan island can be reached by ferry or plane. Coincidentally, a pilot from Garden Ridge — George Gitcho — flies Alaskan Airlines to Ketchikan. On the Landrums’ first visit to their daughter there, they chose the inland cruise on the car ferry.
Kelly Landrum invites Garden Ridge residents to look her up when visiting Alaska.

Committee approves fish farm measure
AUSTIN (AP) — A bill to temporarily prohibit the drilling of wells like the one a south Bexar County catfish farm uses to take a huge amount of water from the Edwards Aquifer was approved by a Senate committee.
The Senate Administration Committee passed the bill by Sen. Cyndi (Crier, R-San Antonio, on Thursday. Gov. Ann Richards added the prop-osed moratorium to the special session agenda, which she controls.
The measure was prompted by the Living Waters Artesian Springs Catfish Farm, which uses an estimated 43.2 million gallons of water a day from the Edwards Aquifer.
“That works out to about a fourth or fifth of all the water usage in Bexar County on an annual basis, and we simply can’t sustain that kind of water use,“saidMs.Krier.
Ron Pucek Jr. has denied his operation is causing the aquifer level to drop.
Krier’s bill also would make a suite prohibition against wasting water applicable to fish farms.
In addition, it would set up a study to determine whether there should be limits on water taken from the aquifer through artesian wells, and whether recycling or conservation requirements should be established.
The moratorium would — from Sept. 1,1991 to Jan. 1,1994 — forbid drilling and operating artesian wells in the Edwards Aquifer with a flow of more than 5,000 gallons per minute. The Texas Water Commission could grant exemptions for health or environmental reasons
In artesian wells, water rises to the surface without pumping, through internal pressure.
Rep. Robert Puente, D-San Antonio, said that Krier’s legislation is needed.
But Puente also is pushing his own bill, which would specifically allow the Edwards Underground Water District to regulate water taken from artesian wells for aquacultural operations, including requiring the operations lo adopt “reasonably achievable’’ recycling practices.
Ite regulations would apply in Baa*', Comal and Hays counties, he said.
