Crime Prevention Tips
from the Hondo Police Department
_By Rick Taylor, Certified Crime Prevention Specialist_

are stolen? Chances are greater of
recovering the valuables if you have
the serial number written down and
you have your Texas driver's license
number engraved on the property.
When your driver's license number
is engraved on your property, a com-
puter check of the number will show
to whom the property belongs. This
adds to the recovery of most of the
items that are taken during a burglary
The Hondo Police Department has
engravers on hand to lend out free of
charge so that you can engrave your

Hondo Dairy Queen reopens
Hondo's Dairy Queen opened
Tuesday after being closed for sev-
eral days while final remodeling
changes were made.
The project, which has been un-
derway for about a month, has given
the 20-year-old Hondo business a
bright new look and considerably

project, done by McDonald Con-
struction Co., corresponds with the

Reed said he was in the process of
commuting from his home in
Uvalde to Devine with the idea of
building a Dairy Queen there, when
he noticed the vacant lot at the cor-
ner of Ave. P and Hwy. 90.
He changed his mind and decided
to build in Hondo instead.
"We've never been sorry we did
it," said Reed. "Hondo is our No. 1
store.” He also owns Dairy Queens
in Uvalde, Sabina! and Cotulla.
A native of Pleasanton, Reed
worked in a Dairy Queen while still
in high school. Later, in the spring
of 1966, he went into business in
