New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 29, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Canyon Lake Hvrald-Zfitung Thursday, September 29,1983 Starting over Fire department gets no bids on trucks BySANDRAJACKSON Staff writer Canyon Lake Area Volunteer Fire Department board members will have to take a new approach if they plan to have two new firetrucks ready by the end of 1983. No bids were received this month by the department for the vehicles they want to buy. “We’ll have to go at it a different way and contact various dealers,” said R.A. (Bob) Harm, board president, after directors met Tuesday at Fire Station No. I in Canyon City. Specifications had been drawn at the August meeting. The department needs two one-ton trucks with chassis, to be outfitted by the department. “We will install SWKgallon water tanks, hose reels and hose, bars, saws and other rescue equipment,” Harm said. In other business, the board heard a report on the status of paving work being done at all five of its fire stations. Work is complete at Station No. 3 at Potters Creek, and over half of the paving work is finished at Station No. I. “Number l's our biggest project,” Harm said, explaining that the property is being paved from the road to the building, and some work is being done on the sides of the lot. “It’s really going to improve the looks of the station, and will also help our parking and mowing problems,” Harm added. Board secretary Elvin Munsell reported that the department made IO fire runs and 40 ambulance runs during August. Portions of 3 parks to close Saturday Saturday marks the official seasonal closing of four areas in three parks at Canyon Lake. Hie U. S. Army Corps of Engineers will close the gates on Areas 4 and 5 of Canyon Park, the west half of Potters Creek Park and Camping Area I in Comal Park Saturday. “This doesn’t mean we are closing these parks, just some areas,” said Phil Parsley, Canyon Reservoir manager. He said this allows Corps personnel to reduce their maintenance efforts during the off-season. Certain areas in designated parks are shut down each winter when the number of visitors is significantly lower, and re-opened in the spring, prior to the seasonal influx of tourists. Gates are used to prevent entry into closed areas, Parsley said. No fees have been charged for camping in any of the Corps parks since Sept. 6, and they will not be charged again until Memorial Day weekend next year. According to a report issued by the Corps’ Fort Worth District Office, total visitors at Canyon Lake numbered 1.966,299 from Jan. I to Aug. 31 this year. During August, 269,203 people used the facilities around the lake. The largest group was fishermen, numbering 91,577. The new fishing pier at Cranes Mill Park is being “very well utilized,” Parsley said. Fishermen report the facility very crowded, especially on weekends. “The new covered pier will be open soon at Cranes Mill Marina,” Parsley said, adding that the enclosed and heated facility will be open to the public, and admission will be charged. Parsley does not foresee a change in the outflow of Canyon Lake any time soon. “We’ll roll along like this for quite some time unless we get some new water in the lake.” Outflow has been 50 cubic feet per second since Sept. 6. More bluebonnets were planted on the grassy side of Canyon Dam recently by the Canyon Lake Winnower Garden Club, which has sponsored the project each year since 1980. “They’re coming up strong, and we should have a lot of color on the dam next year,” Parsley said. He noted that the winnowers planted this year were put lower on the dam, near the road, for better visibility. “We have a lot of plants on the dam now, but the spring grass is usually so tall that you have to be up on the top of the dam to see the nowers,” Parsley said. -SANDRA JACKSON Longhorn prompts Reagan letter Canyon Lake area resident Max Crow is in posession of a future collector’s item — a personal letter from the President Grow received the letter this week in response to a gift he made earlier in the year. An artist in the stained glass medium, Crow crafted a Texas longhorn plaque, which San Antonio Councilwoman Helen Dut-mer presented on his behalf. The gift was given to President Reagan by Dutmer at the Cinco DeMayo celebration, during which Reagan visited San Antonio. The letter, address to Mr. and Mrs. Crow, relates Reagan’s thanks. “I am delighted with the Texas longhorn motif and really appreciate your kindness in sharing your artwork with me,” the letter states.

However, program officials anticipate waiting until mid-November to actually place the fish in the river. “We will have to wait for cooler weather,” said Pat Hutson, Texas Parks A Wildlife Dept, hatchery biologist. The trout are being raised by the Fish and Wildlife Service of the federal government in Mountain Home, Ark. They will be transported from there to the state fish hatchery in San Marcos, where they will be held for future stocking, Hutson explained. An estimated 120,000 fish will be placed in the Guadalupe River this winter. Waters will be stocked once every two weeks from the onset of the program until mid-March, Hutson said. Trout will be a catchable size of eight to nine inches when stocked. The biologist said that the week of Nov. 14 to 21 will probably be the time that the first rainbow trout will be placed in the river. Five candidates have been chosen at Smithson Valley High School to compete for the title of homecoming queen. Students selected the semi-finalists last week. Vying for the crown are Gins Ohlenbusch, Traci Felch, Laurie Kneupper, Roxy Veit and Melissa Hoekstra, all seniors. The student body will be polled by secret ballot to elect its 1983 homecoming queen, and the winner will be named at the halftime of the homecoming football game next week. One girl has been elected from each of the three other classes to make up the homecoming court. This year’s court will Include freshman Shana Sill, sophomore Michelle Witt and junior Usa Baker.
