LAKE WHITNEY - Personal wa-
tercraft or jet skis are rapidly increas-
ing in popularity. The number of
accidents involving these nimble, little
boats is increasing even more rapidly.
Accidents generally result from a lack
of courtesy in their operation, accord-
ing to the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
“By law, personal watercraft are
motorboats and must be registered,
abide by the navigation rules for all
boats and carry the required safety
equipment, including lifejackets and
fire extinguishers. Though simple to
operate, they are not children's toys If
you’re old enough to drive a car, you
shouldn't operate a personal water-
craft," said a spokesperson
Tips to increase safety:
• Wear the proper safety equipment
a Coast Guard approved lifejacket with
a whistle attached to summon help, eye
protection to keep water spray from
obscuring your vision, tennis or deck
shoes, gloves, and a wet suit.
• Keep a lookout for other boats,
especially other personal watercraft
Collision is the moat common type of
personal watercraft accident.
• Be aware of the noise your craft
makes. Constant running in a small
area can be extremely irritating to oth-
• Always attach your safety lanyard
when operating your craft. In the event
of a fall, the safety lanyard kills the
engine and could save a long swim
• Stay out of swimming areas. Never
operate at night and never tow water
• Never drink and operate. Know
your operating waters so you can avoid
weeds, rocks, sandbars,and other dan-
• Take a boating safety course. The
Coast Guard Auxiliary offers a personal
watercraft safety course.

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary At
Lake Whitney Lists Activities
LAKE WHITNEY - Flotilla 5-15 of
the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Lake
Whitney, was busy the first weekend
of April with a variety of activities.
• Lofers Bend was the site of a cour-
tesy marine examination station where
boaters could have their vessels checked
to make sure the required safety equip-
ment was aboard. If all equipment was
located and found in satisfactory con-
dition, then a courtesy marine seal of
safety decal was affixed to the wind-
shield. John Caudry and George
Bridgeman conducted this activity.
Anna Lee Caudry taught boating safety
principles to the children using the
“Water and Kids" coloring book.
• Several of the auxiliarist attended
a class conducted at the home of John
and Anna Lee Caudry at Shuler Point.
Attending the class, which was one of
several in a series pertaining to safety
patrols on the water, were George
Bridgeman, Chris Hoffman, Michael
and Susan Gardner, Blair Miller, Don
Birchum, and Perry Williams. This
particular course is just one of seven
advanced specialty courses offered 5y
the USCG auxiliary to its members
The courses are voluntary but are re-
quired if a member wants to perform
at the advanced levels.
• The Flotilla at Lake Whitney com-
pleted the final session of the public
education course, Boating Skills and
Seamanship, at the West Shore Civic

Center. “The Flotilla extends a hearty
well done to all of those boaters who
cared enough about safe boating to at-
tend and increase their knowledge of
safety. It is in this area (Boating Safety)
that the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
exist and is ever striving to make our
nation’s water ways a safer and cleaner
place of enjoyment," said a spokesman
• On April 1, the Flotilla commenced
its lake safety patrols on the water.
Members who are qualified (through
speciality courses and on-the-water
qualifications) take their privately
owned vessels (boats) out on the lake
looking for boaters who may need as-
sistance. A land based radio watch is
required while auxiliarist are on pa-
trol. This watch station is malrtied, by
no other than, another radio-qualified
auxiliarist. “To qualify for this ex-
tremely important task, one must com-
plete the communication speciality
course. If you are out on the water,
have a radio on board your vessel, and
need assistance, please call. The
Coast Guard Auxiliary Whitney
Radio. If we have a patrol out, we’ll
respond as quickly as possible," stressed
“If you would like to become a part
of this very active, civic-minded group
of volunteers, call (on the land ljne)

cluded the spokesperson.

Former Congressman Jack Kemp,
who later served as United States Sec-
retary of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment in former President George Bush’s
administration, has long advocated
urban enterprise cones to aid the poor,
minorities, and small buameaawt. Kemp
also cosponsored the Kemp-Roth tax
plan, which inspired a 30 percent tax
cut during former President Ronald
For more than a decade, Kemp was
a National Football League quarter-
back. With former U.S. Secretary of
Education William Bennett, Kemp
founded Empower America, a national
public policy organisation focusing on
the free market and other laaues.
Kemp's withdrawal from 1996 Re-
publican Presidential contention disap-
pointed supporters. They believed that
Kemp’s concerned conservatism held
wide appeal, not only for thoae sharing
his political views, but for poor and
minority voters whom Kemp believes
should be enthusiastically welcomed
into a broadened, diversified GOP, at-
tractive to an ever growing following..
Kemp, whose comments appeared in
the August, 1994 issue of Imprimis,
the monthly journal of Hillsdale (Mich.)
College, spoke last year at a Hillsdale
Shavano Institute for National Lead-
ership seminar. His topic, “Culture
Wars. The Battle Over Family Values,”
was delivered in Raleigh, N.C., before
nearly 900 business and community
“Democratic capitalism has been
history's sharpest weapon against pov-
erty, oppression, and tyranny," Kemp
argued. “Free markets have provided
unequaled living standards for unri-
valed numbers of men and women.
“As economist Joseph Schumpeter
observed, 'Queen Elizabeth owned silk
stockings. The capitalists’ achievement
does not consist in providing silk stock-
ings for queens, but in bringing them
within reach of factory girls."’
Capitalism’s enduring appeal, accord-
ing to Kemp, “is not its toasters, tele-
visions, and transistors, but its respect
for individual innovation, creativity,
and upward mobility.
never been a utopian vision. It has
never promised to build the Kingdom
of God on earth. But it has succeeded
in allowing people to stand upright and
dignified in the kingdoms of this world,"
Despite “all its successes," capital-
ism cannot stand alone, Kemp con-
"It depends on a system of values
and morality it reinforces but does not
create—on moral and cultural habits
that determine its appeal, its power,
and its success,” Kemp explained.
“Consider the virtues of capitalism:
the ethics of work, savings, and self-
reliance; the integrity and honesty es-
sential to contracts, trade, and money;
a passion for excellence; the impulse
toward charity and philanthropy. All
these things depend on values, not on
"An economy reflects the moral im-
age of its people. . .The state of the hu-
man soul determines the shape of
human society," Kemp pointed out.
Since a government conceived in lib-
erty has none of tyranny’s tools, it must
depend on other institutions to install

subjects as mathematics and history,
but of citizenship and character—lea-
sons that come from an understanding

ration of Independence. ..
‘We cannot isolate economic oppor-
tunity from cultural renewal, because
both are required to confront the prob-
lems around us,: Kemp continued. “If

“It will not heal a broken home. It

ture and comfort. It will not restore

“The National Commission on Chil-
dren concluded its 1993 report with
sober words: Today, too many young
people seem adrift, without a ready
moral compass to direct their daily
behavior or to plot (a) responsible
course for their lives.’
“While this remains true, there will
never be enough police and prisons to
end the lawlessness in our streets if it
starts in our hearts There will never
be enough government policies and
