Make Christmas merrier this year
The Christmas season traditionally
brings thoughts of love and peace,
gifts and get-togethers with family
and friends. The holidays are also a
time of increased travel and alcohol
consumption. To combat this danger-
ous mix, the Texas Department of
Public Safety wiil be patrolling high-
: ways, enforcing traffic laws with the
; aim of reducing the number of fatali-
; ties associated with holiday periods.
“It won't be a very merry Christmas
if you are involved in a crash," said
Col. Thomas A. Davis Jr., director of
the DPS. "Our troopers will be out in
full force looking for drunk drivers,
speeders and seat belt violators."
Fortunately, prior thought and plan-
ning can alleviate travel stress and
avoid potential problems.
The DPS offers Texas motorists the
' • Drinking and driving don't mix.
Never drive after consumi ng alcohol
Plan for a designated driver, or call
for a cab.
• Slow down. Driving over the
speed limit was the cause of 562 traf-
fic deaths in 1999 alone. Inclement
weather provides enough of a driv-
ing challenge without adding speed
to the mix.
• Increase your awareness. Driving
on icy or wet roadways requires even
greater caution. Navigate bridges and
overpasses with care - they're the first
areas to freeze when the temperature
drops. Most people forget that ice can
be difficult to see.
• Always wear your seatbelt, and
ensure everyone in the vehicle is
• Plan your trip carefully, even if
it’s to only go to the store. Be sure to
allow enough time to make the trip
safely. Be prepared for delays. Haste
can cause crashes.
• Check out road conditions in the
event of bad weather. Consult local
news stations or the Texas Depart-
ment of Transportation for road clo-
sures. TxDOT can be reached at 1-
800-452-9292, or on the internet at
• Maintain a full gas tank. This helps
avoid condensation in the fuel tank.
• Check the vehicle's fluids, includ-
ing motor oil, windshield washer and
transmission fluid, and the ignition
system, lights, heaters and cooling
system regularly. Remember to check
the vehicle's battery before it gets cold.
• Pack your vehicle with a blanket,
first-aid kit, flares, jumper cables, tire
chains, a flashlight, ice scraper and
gloves. Include a supply of candy bars
or dried fruit in case you become
MULE DEER... V. DeLaGarza shot this mule deer at 230 yards with a
25.06 on his Brewster County ranch. The deer was killed Dec. 3 at
about 7:30 a.m., weighed 200 pounds and had a 23.5- inch spread.
This holiday season let us count
our blessings and spread a message
of peace as we look toward 2002 -
a year of new beginnings
and new hope for the future.

A Thank You To All Who Helped
The tornado and storms of October 12th brought injury to some of our citi-
zens and loss of homes and significant property damage to many others. The
havoc of that night also brought us a renewed sense of community and out-
pourings of caring from good neighbors inside and outside of our community.
To all of you who contributed your time, your labor and your financial and other
gifts, we say THANK YOU. Without you the journey to recovery would be much
longer and more difficult.
There remains much to be done, but it will be done and we will recover... thanks
to the help you have given and continue to give.
