Crowd expected for movie at the pool
From Staff Reports
The first Swimmin’ Cinema event is expected to draw a crowd of curious onlookers Thursday at the Aquatic Complex in luanda Park.
“I’m expecting a big crowd,” said Amy Weigelt, aquatics superintendent.
Doors will open at 8 p.m. for children and parents looking to save their spot in the pool, in the bleachers or p<Reside.
The sundown showing of ‘‘Scooby Doo" — Warner Brothers’ 2002 live-action release — is expected to start about 8:45.
The screen will not be as big as a standard movie theater screen, but it is large enough for a crowd to view, Weigelt said.
More than 200 tickets are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the park office. Cost is $4 for children and $6 for adults.
Patrons also can buy tickets at the door the night of the event.
A limited number of inner tubes will be available for children to float on in the 4-feet to 6-feet deep pool. Food, drinks and lawn chairs are
allowed, but glass and alcohol are prohibited in the complex. Adults must accompany children less than IO years old.
Weigelt has hosted Swim-min’ Cinema at aquatics centers in other cities. She said floating in a tube and watching a movie is a “unique com
bination” that has been a success with families.
“Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean the fun has to end,” she said.
If tonight’s event is successful, Swimmin’ Cinema could continue throughout the summer, Weigelt said.
of the Herald-Zeitung will be closed on July 4th in observance of Independence Day.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU UVE ITS WORTH THE DRIVEPossible SARS cases in Austin
By Dylan JimenezStaff Writer
Comal County health officials are poised to deal with cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome.
No cases have been found in the county, but three patients have been tested for SARS after traveling to areas with high-concentrations of cases, said Karon Preiss, head of the Comal County Health Department.
When two suspected cases of SARS were discovered in nearby Travis County, information on assessing and containing possible SARS cases immediately went out to medical facilities in Comal County, Preiss said.
“Whenever we get an alert about anything, we have the capability to maintain redundant communication with all of our health people in the county,” Preiss said. “Being that SARS was in Austin, we really didn’t do anything different than we already had (been doing) because we already had people going to the places where they had big problems.”
The Austin cases did not alarm Preiss.
“We have been on the alert for it for a long time and have not sat back and thought that it’s not going to happen here,” Preiss said.
Although there have been some individuals tested in Comal County, there have been no cases that could be officially designated as “suspected” or “probable.”
The two Travis county cases are still pending, but the victims have recovered, said Bob Flocke, communications manager at Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services.
Both patients spent just a night in the hospital and were released to home isolation, where they and those who came in contact with them were under specific restrictions for IO days after symptoms subsided.
The last suspected case of SARS was released from home isolation June 15.
There have been more than 400 suspected cases of SARS in the U.S., and only six of those cases have tested positive for the corona virus associated with SARS.
Travelers to Austin, including commuters, are in no danger, Flocke said.
‘Tou need to be in some close prolonged contact with someone to get it,” he said.
All those in contact with the suspected SARS victims have been tested and cleared of the condition, he said.
