Carl Frentress, in a recent address to a Surface Mine Reclamation Work- shop held at Texas A&M University, said current Texas Railroad Commission estimates indicate as many as one million acres of the state could be impacted by lignite mining in coming years. "While the need for energy is of major impor- tance to the economy of this nation, adverse impacts to wildlife resources result- ing from surface mining are inevitable, " Frentress told the workshop. Frentress explained that lignite coal in Texas is found in shallow layers near the ground's surface, and mining requires removal of the entire vegetative cover and soil above the lignite seam. "Currently, Texas is the number...

This is the time of year to be jolly, but you'll be jollier if you can stretch your money. Some clever shoppers in my district save on their grocery bills by using coupons and refunds. Often they cooperate with each other informally or through clubs organized to get the most mileage out of the thousands of opportuni- ties to "clip and save" offered in newspapers, magazines, in the mail, or in the stores themselves. The Department of Agri- culture estimates that 80 percent of American food shoppers use coupons. This estimate is doubtful because only four percent of the coupons ava...

Road Hunters Caught With The Goods SPIKE BUCK MYTH HURTS DEER HERDS AUSTIN - Four Houston men celebrated Pearl Harbor Day by shoot- ing up the countryside in Kerr County Sunday, but in the end they lost the war. Acting on a tip from a landowner, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department game wardens stopped the quartet as they drove into Mountain Home. A search of the vehicle turned up six white- tailed deer, two exotic axis deer and a turkey hen. Game Warden David Sinclair of Kerrville had observed shots being fired from the vehicle outside Mountain Home before the arrest. A total of 32 cases was filed against the men in a local Justice of the Peace Court. Fines were assessed totaling $6,600 on charges ranging from discharging a firearm from a public road to taking deer and turkey illegally.

SACHSE,TEXAS Murvaul Still Fishy Despite Age NEW WATER PROCESS WORKING WELL AUSTIN - The "Murvaul monster" legend has died, but Lake Murvaul continues to produce more than its share of large- mouth bass fishing. Through the years Texas Parks and Wildlife Depart- ment biologists have studied the 23-year-old reservoir near Carthage in efforts to learn why it provided such consistent trophy-bass fishing. So many oversized bass came from the lake it caused speculation that the fish may be a different species from those in the rest of Texas. As it turned out, the Murvaul monsters were sim- ply well-fed native large- mouths which were lucky enough to live in a fertile lake well-endowed with sub- merged cover and bottom variations. Biologist Joe Toole of Marshall pointed out that most Texas lakes provide Slightly more than 70 percent of the anglers caught at least one bass, and the average size fish was a healthy 1.67 pounds. These figures stack up favorably with tourney sta- tistics from ...
