Pug* 8 8ACHSE SENTINEL Jan. 1984 "FREAK" ACCIDENTS CLAIM LIVES "Camp Meat" Discovery Leads To Arrest CITY PRESENTS APPRECIATION CERTIFICATES The thought of a high- rewing 100-horsepower out- board thrashing wildly about in a boat is enough to terrorize any boater. This happened twice during 1983 with tragic results, and water safety officials of the Texas Parks and Wildlife De- partment hope the state's boat operators can take steps to pre- vent similar incidents in 1984. Three fishermen were in a boat running at full throttle in the Lower Laguna Madre last spring when the motor's lower unit struck a submerged ob- ject. The force of the collission ripped the large outboard engine free of the transom, flipping it forward. The still- running motor's propeller in- flicted fatal lacerations to one of the men. In a similar incident on Lake Benbrook near Fort Worth, an ll-year-old boy was fatally in- jured when the motor was sheared from its mounting and the propeller severed his left arm...

Tippett, Zone Manager, presented him with his pin and Store Manager Mr. Alex Shepherd is shown congratulating him. (He is still not ready to retire). 0 * 9 A WISH FOR THE NEW YEAR C~\ beautiful expression of a true evaluation of life's Qyy finer things is embodied in the familiar, inspiring words of W. R.

What can I wish that this day may bring to me? Nothing that shall make the world or others poorer, nothing at the expense of other men; but just those few things which, in their coming, do not stop with me, but touch me, rather, as they pass and gather strength. A few friends who understand me, and yet remain my friends A work to ...

^Hphs OF! TECHNOLOGY' Sugar cane is harvested in Hawaii, and stalks crushed in rollers. Remains provide steam for refining and fuel to generate electricity. Modern cogeneration plant burning waste sugar cane provides electricity to Hawaiian industry and homes. V.. - How sweet it is. So say sugar plantation owners in Hawaii, who are sweetening their profits by installing cogeneration sys- tems producing steam and electricity at the same time. The units produce steam and electricity to refine sug- ar and provide an addition- al source of income from the excess electricity gener- ated and sold to the islands' electric utilities. Just as sweet to the plantation people is the ability of cogeneration units to burn sources of fuel oth- er than expensive oil and gas. The fuel used is the waste fiber of sugar cane and it doesn't cost anything. Called bagasse, it is what's left after the sugar cane stalks are crushed be- tween rollers a number of times. The juice squeezed from the stalks goes...
