Buckle Up America emphasis this week
By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
The month of May’s safety cavalcade continues with “Buckle Up America! Week," slated for Monday through May 27.
The Texas State Department of Public Safety’s Traffic Safety Section is joining the rest of the nation in encouraging everyone to use safety belts in their cars, to buckle children into child safety scats and to learn more about automatic crash protection systems available in many modem cars.
The goal of this year’s “Buckle Up America! Week" is to increase awareness of safety belt and child safety laws. It is also intended to call attention to law enforcement efforts of the mandatory seat belt law and to increase correct usage.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is also conducting a major effort during this
summer and next to increase safety belt use. A series of nugor press events across the country will incorporate law enforcement, medical, public health, and private sector organizations to improve safety belt usage.
The goal that all organizations are working towards is President Bush's goal of 70 percent belt use by 1992. Currently, the national average is about 50 percent belt use. This is a major improvement from 1983 when overall belt use was as low as 14 percent.
In a related note, the American Academy of Pediatrics has responded to an on-going need of parents seeking information on child safety seats. Car scats on the market as of January 1991 are listed in the “1991 Family Shopping Guide to Car Seats." For a free sample copy send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Family Shopping Guide, P.O. Box 927, Elk Grove Village, IL 60009.

OPEN LETTER TO THE CITIZENS OF DISTRICT 4:
I need your help - the issues we face in the next few years will determine our city’s future. Let’s look at how I stand on these issues.
1. My children attend school in the shadow of the smokestack of Lafarge. The burning of toxic waste is totally unacceptable. This permit will only be defeated by an all out effort from the City Council, City Staff, County Judge and Commissioner's Court. As your council person, I will work to protect our community from any risk to public health and safety.
2.. San Antonio just defeated Applewhite - The catfish farm will use three times the amount of our yearly water use. We must have ground water regulation. In the interim we can conserve, reuse and recycle water while instituting local plumbing codes to restrict water use. I am a dedicated conservationist. I train teachers and scout leaders in Project Wild, a Texas Parks and Wildlife conservation program.
3. I support the performing arts and our cultural heritage. These groups enhance our lives and bring the past to life!
4. We must bring new, clean industry to keep our tax rate low and provide jobs for our young people. I will support only these types of Industry. Our local economy depends on clean air and water, industries that would harm our environment are unacceptable.
