Recognized for his support to fellow law enforcement officials, Texas Ranger Ramiro “Ray” Martinez — who retires in December — was “roasted” among friends and colleagues Wednesday.
“I can tell you straight from the heart that any time that I needed any kind of bel]} I could always call on Ray, whether it would be high noon or midnight,” said Lt. Rudy Rubio of the Comal County Sheriffs Office. “He would never say no and he was always there for answers.
“If anybody was to ask me to describe Ray in 25 words or less I guess the best description from my opinion is he just has the uncanny ability to find something when there appears there’s nothing there ... He can always find the missing link the missing clue to solve a case,” Rubio said.
More than IOO law enforcement officials and friends gathered at the Gifford-Hill & Company Gubhouse near Garden Ridge Wednesday to
Killer bees have an ‘attitude
By ALAN HOLT Staff Writer
The Africanized honey bee, or Killer Bee, which has continually threatened to invade the United States and already has in some isolated cases, was the topic of an informative meeting given Wednesday by Comal County Extension agents.
Dr. J.W. “Dub” Stewart, extension entomologist from the Texas AAM Research Center in Uvalde, told the 12-member audience the bee could reach as far north as New Braunfels, and possibly farther, within the next couple of years. “That’s about as far north as they can go and survive the winter,” he said.
Unlike the European honey bee that is common in the United States, the Africanized honey bee is much more aggressive. “Actually it’s just another type of honey bee with an attitude problem,” he said. “If you’re within 30 or 40 yards of an Africanized bee colony, they’re going to come after you.”
Africanized bec colonies can reach 50,000 in number, and although each bee is able to sting only once before dying, the swarm stings as much as IO times more,.than, a European bec swarm, Stewart said.
Contrary to what many people think, the Africanized bee sting is slightly less venomous than that of the European bee.
For a person who stumbles upon an Africanized bee swarm. Stewart said, “The worst thing you can do is stand there and swat at them. They hate that, and they’ll go straight for your head.
“The best thing to do is put something over your head and run as far away as possible.”
