By LARRY ROWE Staff Writer A Bexar County catfish farmer who was using enough water daily to meet the needs of 220,000 people has.shut off 97 percent of the water flowing through his wells, an official with the Edwards Underground Water District said Tuesday. J “He was using 43 million gallons of water a day to raise a crop of fish,” said Kelly Morris, spokeswoman for the water district. “There was no recycling whatsoever. It just flowed over the fish one time and was gone.’*
Ron Pucek Jr., owner of the Living Waters Artesian Springs farm, is out of town and cannot be reached for
comment, according to a farm worker.
Morris said a lawsuit against Pucek for wasting valuable water from the Edwards Aquifer and polluting the Medina River will proceed forward. The suit is brought by the water district and the San Antonio River Authority—will proceed forward.
But a temporary injunction against the farm was postponed because of the progress made in reducing the water flow to 1.7 million gallons per day, Moms said.
Pucek intended to shirr off the flow completely, but a valve malfunctioned, she said.
Pucek was being cited for viola-Dinner.

Turkey cooking and handling tips
By ROBERT STEWART Buff Writer
Some care in preparation and handling of your holiday turkey can assure that the Thanksgiving feast will be safe and heathy as well as delicious.
The recommended way to roast a turkey is on a rack in a shallow, open pan at 325 degrees F., according to Patricia Anderson Rasor, County Extension Agent for Home Economics in Comal County.
When the turkey becomes golden brown, loosely tent a piece of foil over the breast to keep it from overbrowning, Rasor said.
; Cooking a turkey in a brown paper bag is a dangerous practice for two reasons, she said. There is a possibility of an oven fire and, as the paper gets hot, chemicals in the paper could transfer to the turkey, affecting the flavor.
Turkey has the best eating quality when a meat thermometer, inserted into the thigh, reaches 185 degrees.
The Extension Service gives two methods for thawing a turkey. The
first method is to place the still-wrapped fowl in a drip pan in the refrigerator, allowing 24 hours for every five pounds of turkey. The other method is to place the wrapped bird under cold running water or in a container of water that is changed frequently. Allow two hours per five pounds of turkey for this method and don’t use warm or hot water.
A microwave can be used for thawing if the manufacturer’s instructions are followed. Leaving the turkey on the kitchen counter for thawing is not safe. The turkey will thaw from the outside in and bacteria can multiply to dangerous levels before the center of the bird thaws.
Stuffing the turkey the night before can also be dangerous. Bringing the dressing ingredients into contact with the raw turkey for a period of time is not advisable. To get a head start, assemble the dry ingredients for your dressing the night before. Add the vegetables and liquid ingredients the next morning just before stuffing the turkey and placing it in the oven.
Not stuffing the turkey at all may be easier and safer. A stuffed turkey takes an hour longer to cook and is more difficult to serve. There is also less likelihood of contamination when not stuffing.
After the meal, put the turkey and dressing in the refrigerator immediately but don't store stuffing inside the turkey.
Large quantities of leftovers should be divided into small packages for quicker cooling and easier reheating.
The Extension Service recommends not keeping gravy and stuffing longer than two days or leftover turkey more than three to four days.

tions of the Texas Water Code because the discharge of the water off his property into the Medina River is polluting it, according to the San Antonio River Authority’s studies.
Bob Sohn, general manager for the New Braunfels Utilities, remarked, “I think he could see the handwriting on the wall that they were going to nail him, and I think that he could see the futility in what he was going to have to do was going to cost him.”
The alternatives were to recirculate and clean up the water flushed into the Medina, or go out of business, Sohn said.
“Nobody gives us the right to take
the water from the Edwards Aquifer and waste it,” he said, adding that fish farms across the county need to recirculate.
Morris added that the water district is “working diligently” with the farm to get the remaining leakage under control.
She said Pucek’s operation was producing enough water to satisfy the needs of more than 220,000 people, and one quarter of the area of San Antonio.
“Our intent was never to close Mr. Pucek down,” she said. “Our intent was always to eliminate the unnecessary waste of groundwater.”Stammtisch-
