SAN MARCOS — A conservation biology major from the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, is canoeing the San Marcos and Guadalupe rivers from San Marcos to the coast, taking water quality samples along the way.
Dianne Wassenich, executive director of San Marcos River Foundation, helped arrange the canoe trip by Adri-anna Beaudette, 22.
"She is on the Guadalupe now," Wassenich said Tltesday. “She is testing water quality the whole way down, and will be speaking about her trip to school kids at schools (in San Marcos, Luling, Cuero and
Seadrift) on her way back.” ’We've been helping her find riverside landowners to get permission for her to camp or stay in their cabins," Wassenich said. “We and others also helped her find pad-dler partners, and several of our members paddled with her on the upper river over the past week.”
She had passed Gonzales and was paddling coastward toward Cuero on Tuesday.
Beaudette told San Marcos Daily Record that she’s been trained in water-quality sam-pling, and she hopes her water-quality data will provide some interesting information.

NASA SPOTS 54 POTENTIAL GOLDILOCKS' PLANETS
FUNERAL HOME NEW BRAUNFELS 830-625-3434
WASHINGTON (AP) — An orbiting NASA telescope is finding whole new worlds of possibilities in the search for alien life, spotting more than 50 potential planets that appear to be in the habitable zone.
In just a year of peering out at a small slice of the galaxy, the Kepler telescope has discov
ered 1,235 possible planets outside our solar system. Amazingly, 54 of them are seemingly in the zone that could be hospitable to life, Kepler chief scientist William Borucki said.
Until now, only two planets outside our solar system were even thought to be in the "Goldilocks zone."

No one was injured in a rollover wreck Wednesday that diverted traffic for about 45 minutes at the corner of the 1-35 access road and Seguin Avenue in New Braunfels.
The accident occurred around 3:45 p.m., when a van turning out of the Courtyard Plaza strip center, located in the 200 block of 1-35 South, was struck by a car traveling northbound in the outside lane of the access road.
“The vehicle exiting the private parking lot made a hard right turn and ended up striking the vehicle in the outside lane, causing it to

rollover,” New Braunfels Police Sgt. Steve Hanna said. "It took awhile to extract her because she was in a unique position in the car.”
