Hays Free Press June 2, 2010 NEWS Page3A Kyle residents asked to conserve STAFF REPORT Though heavy rain- fall this winter officially brought a two-year drought to an end, area residents are preparing to begin conserv- ing water again through the dry summer months. The Kyle City Council approved a voluntary twice per week watering schedule starting this week, city of- ficials say. Kyle residents are being asked to stick to a watering schedule in order to con- tinue water conservation efforts that were instituted during last year's drought. Cutting back on watering may also reduce monthly water bills. If drought conditions arise, the schedule may become mandatory. More information is available on the City of Kyle website at The City of Buda cur- rently has no mandatory watering restrictions, but asks residents to voluntarily limit their water use.

While riding his bike along with his friends on May 23, he decided to briefly ride hands-free. He eventually lost control of his bike, turned toward a fire hydrant, and severely sliced his knee as his leg grazed it. As he rested on the ground, Castillo dialed 911 on his cell phone and handed it to his friend, BradleyWood, who gave the operator the proper infor- mation. His other friend, Sam- my Ruiz, a local boy scout, then applied first aid to his leg as they waited for first responders. All three of the teenagers, aged 13 and students at Waliace Middle School, were honored Tuesday night with a Kyle City Council proclamation dubbed "Hometown Heroes Day." "Sammy Ruiz and Bradley Wood acted instinctively and appropriately to treat and care for Ryan Castillo and also took action to call for the appropri- ate assistance," the proclama- tion reads. Afterward, Castillo recalled the incident that ended in an 18-centimeter incision and 40 (From left to right) Sammy Ruiz, Ryan Castillo Kyle City Council proclamation from Mayor LI stitches in his knee. crutc "I was laughing when it lifesl first happened," said Castillo, ban( proudly adding all the gory de- deel7 tails of his injury.

Graduation Continued from pg. 1A couldn't walk across the stage since he wouldn't be at rehearsal. Instead, he had a paramedic certifica- tion class at Austin Com- munity College. "It really upset me," Lappe said. "They said that there was nothing that they could do." About a week later, after appeals went all the way up to the superintendent, school officials buckled and will allow Lappe to partici- pate in the ceremony. " Hays CISD spokesperson Julie Jerome said if students have good reason to miss the rehearsal, such as at- tending college courses, they still will be permitted in the procession. Mandatory rehearsal is also in place at Academy High School, but not at Lehman, where se- niors are simply expected to attend rehearsal. In addition, a memoran- dum advised parents to stay off the field at Bob Shelton Stadium when taking pho- tographs of the ceremonies. The Hays and Lehman cer- emonies take place at 8 p.m. on the football field, about one hundred feet from the stands, making it almost impossible to get a decent shot in the dusk light. Stover says that parents have no choice but to pay Flash Photography, who has permission to take the pho- tos of graduates. In conso- lation, school officials allow parents on the field during the rehearsals. "Did you take your wed- ding photos during your rehearsal?" Stover said. "Of course not, they were taken during the wedding." He plans to protest the rules by letting his daugh- ter skip one day of class. When a student is absent, the school doesn't obtain attendance dollars for that student. "If we take a few atten- dance dollars from [the school's] pocket, maybe it will have an impact," he said.
