Employees at Cranes Mill Marina take a break from repairs to the site Friday afternoon. Wind gusts of up to 60 mpfi on Thursday damaged boat slips and the marina structure, tossing several boats upside down into Canyon Lake.
King said the company that owns the Cranc's Mill Marina also owns the Canyon Lake Marina and a rental fleet there. Boats will be sent from the Canyon Lake Marina to Cranes Mill and rental operations should be up some time next w'c'c^k, he said.
Vanc'ssa Boitnott, a bartender at th(' neighborhood tavern, The Hideout, said the watering hole sees many boaters from the marina each summer. Shc' said boaters somc'times come in after a long day on the lake to relax and have a few drinks.

AUSTIN — (x)mal County Commissioner Greg Parker testified on l)ehalf of the Kt'y-stone XL Pipeline at a U.S. State L)ef)artment hearing Wednesday in Austin, Tt'xasln-sider.Org reported.
The pipeline would link suf)plies of Canadian crude
oil with redlining markers in Tc'xas ancl otlier states.
"1 ask that you a[)prove tins worthy proj-ec t without delay. Constructing the Keystone XI pipeline would be a positive
step for America and Texas," said Parker, who is not sei'king re-election in Comal County but is contemplating a run for the Texas Railroad ('ommis-sion, which overset's the state's oil and gas industry.
"Keystone XL would fortity our energy su[)ply, grow' our economy and put thousands
of people back to work," said Parker, author of the book "Cjlobal Warming ... Reallvi'" Parker, who told the Slate [)epartment that he is currently researching the economic as[)ects of urnaii natural gas exploration in Texas, said the
