Cedar Creek Lake's own Abominable tourist at- traction? We can't conjure up Gray, who called Lovelady, said she knew the difference between a four legged bull and a two legged man. Deputy Benny Rolison more or less confirmed the bull story---at least he dis- covered that one was loose about the time that Mrs. Gray spotted her ape man. And when another car full of women, also returning from the bingo game, allowed that the "thing" might have been Resources (TDHR) has been enforcing the federal law passed in 1974, and on July 1, the department sent out a 17- page memo to all public water systems advising them of standards they must meet. Feedback from many city and privately owned water systems indicates that -- like so many other federal protect the poor people legislation -- it is almost impossible to be in compliance with federal standards for pure water. Certainly not for the small towns and private systems .operators. Adding insult to injury is the law, now en- forced, that compels each water system to test the water each month for several contaminants, including 10 inorganic chemicals, six organic pesticides, murkiness, radiological contamination and microbes. A sample must be sent to the TDHR for chemicaland bacteriological analysis, and if the water fails to meet federal standards, the water company is in trouble. Back comes a letter from TDHR that advises the water system operator (city or private) that the water is not quite fit to drink. They, says the government, all water customers must be advised in writing that their water lacks the government seal of approval. What is a public water system ? Any system, privately or publicly owned that serves 25 or more per- sons or has at least 15 service connections that are used at tomers that its water is inferior can also be fined $5,000. The Safe Drinking Water Act is not without its critics - in fact, at the moment it can claim few proponents, but especially critical is James M. Rose, executive director of the Texas Water Develop- ment Board. Rose said in a recent press release that there wasn't enough time to thoroughly study and analyze the com- plex set of options about water quality. As a result, he said, "the effort lacked clear direction and suffered from insufficient coordination." Rose charged that the lack of standardized criteria, and the inadequate and inac- curate techniques used by the various federal agencies for measuring environmental impact is hampering and seriously delaying water resource planning and development• "There is reflected a great readiness, almost im- patience, on the part of the from me to all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or friends of the family who has children. The book was brought to my attention last week by Lu Sutton and Jeannie Walker, friends of the library, as they were pouring soft drinks and preparing cookie trays for children who completed the summer reading program at the Malakoff library. Lu had seen the book when one of her children checked it out from the library. Jeannie checked it out for that day. Steve Sutton, it was report- ed, had nearly wrecked the family car while Lu read from the book to him on a recent trip. My curiosity was aroused. I checked with Jeannie the following day to see if the book had been returned to the Library. It was there. It is classified as a child- ren's book. I recommend it to adults. Rather than attempt to do a book review I will give you excerpts. Andrew is the baby in a federal government to in- tervene," he complained, to the editor Wise words, and worth listening to, but in the meantime, what about all these water systems who are sending in their little sample each month to the TDHR? Most of them couldn't pay the $5,000 fine if the government enforced it. In fact a great many of them wwould have a hard time scraping up enough postage to mail notices to their customers that the government doesn't approve Most of the news that we hear and read consists of murder, greed and lust. How- ever, there are good things happening also, and I'd like to report just one of the many nice things that has happened to me recently. I lost a money bag last week that contained cash and checks. Within thirty minutes a call came from Chief Wil- son. Mrs. Lonnie Wallace had ing the scene by Randall Enos. She said, "Just because Andrew is the baby, he gets to sit in the front seat. It's not fair." "He touches valuable things like my peach pit collection. One time he des- troyed my entire pipe cleaner village. It took me two whole days to make that village." "He can wreck a person's room in eight seconds flat. If I even go near his toys, he screams his head off. It's not fair." "Sometimes he bites me. He pinches too. When I hit him back, he hollers as if I were killing him. My mother says: It's wrong to hit a person who is smaller than you." "Andrew is a pig. You should see him eat spinach. He spits it out and gets it all over his face, his hands, his hair, everything. My mother has to keep scraping it off with a spoon. All she ever says is Oh, what a wonderful little spinach eater Andrew is." "The other day I acciden- tally happened to knock over my bowl of From Loops and sliced banana. I got a two hour lecture on being messy and not paying attention. Nobody called me a wonder- ful little Front Loop eater." If you have children, know children, or occasionally visit friends who have children, visit the Malakoff Public Library and check out "It's Not Fair". While you are there, look through the other selections that are available. qll O O dll O O Ill O O I1 O 41, Ill a O Ill al, O O 41 Association M#akoff 502 E.
