Mom’s foresight prevents iiquiy in hindsight
Dear Abby: Something happened yesterday that makes me want to stress the importance of bicycle helmets, even an toddlers who ride little ride-on toys. My 2-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son were riding their bikes on our sidewalk when my son accidentally bumped into die back of his sister’s bike. The bike slid out from under her and she fell backward, hitting her head on the concrete. Fortunately die was wearing a helmet and was not injured, but I shudder to think what might have happened had she not been wearing one.
I hope this letter will make parents think twice before letting their children, regardless of age, ride without a helmet
Virginia Bri^ Levittown,
Dear Virginia: Yon are a wise and conscientious mother for realizing that an innocent bike ride can be dangerous for children who aren’t
wearing bicycle helmets. Helmets can prevent an estimated 85 percent of serious head injuries, and greedy reduce the risk of severe brain injury that can result in death. However, even a minor brain injury can lead to problems with learning and memory.
There are many good helmets on the market today. The easiest way to And one that is well made and reliable is to look for the “SNELL” certification sticker. Helmet models carrying that decal have met
rigorous standards In tests performed by the Snell Foundation. Based on three decades of research in the United States and England, a Snell-certified helmet is one of die best
Bicycle helmets save Ives. There’s no better reason to insist that your child wears one.
P. S. Helmets are also essential safety gear for other sports such as inline skating, etc.

TPWD planned to stock 10,000 trout, and $5,000 from the Water Oriented Recreation District would enable TPWD to stock an additional
6.000 trout, Magnelia said.
Hylmar Karbach of Guadalupe
River Trout Unlimited said his organization would spend $38,000 on four stockings between November and first part of February. About
20.000 trout will be stocked by Trout Unlimited. The trout would range from 1/2 pound to 3 pounds.
“We expect to have about 450 Trout Unlimited members fishing
along die river and they will be from Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio Mid the valley and all points in between,” Karbach said.
June’s near record floods and release rates as high as 5,000 cubic feet per second affected the trout’s river habitats, Magnelia said.
In order for trout to survive in the water, Guadalupe River temperatures needed to be 71 degrees and below, he added. The release rates from Canyon Dam this summer raised the temperature by IO degrees.
“Usually you have a warm upper and a cold lower layer (in Canyon Lake),” he said. “The trouble is with all the movement of water coming through the lake, it mixed those layers. Coming up from the dam, it is
about 65 degrees in a normal year. This year it was about 75 degrees.”
As a result, Magnelia said he and other biologists this year found only one fish near the dam as compared to 1,500 in the same spot in 1996.
Magnelia said TPWD would stock fish in the 8- to 12 -inch range and that Guadalupe Trout Unlimited will be stocking trout in the 18-inch size.
Under new trout fishing regulations that took effect in September, fishermen are allowed to harvest any rainbow or brown trout measuring 18 inches, one daily bag limit from the second crossing on River Road to Whitewater Sports. The trout may not be harvested or retained if taken by any method except artificial lures.
TPWD will continue to stock 3- to 6-inch trout in the river in May or June of each year to bolster the fish population so that TPWD’s desire for a trout fishery on the Guadalupe River could be realized, Magnelia said.
Jessie Crenshaw, manager for the Rio Raft Company near Sattler, said trout season would soon pick up for the winter.
“There are some holes down here where people are catching them because they stock them on the property,” Crenshaw said. “On one weekend, I counted 14 fishermen on Saturday and Sunday, and when the weather turned cool they started coming up.”
