Page 4C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press June 9, 2010 OBITUARIES ACOSTA Adrian Nicho- las Acosta, 18, of Manchaca was called to heaven to be with the angels on Wednesday, June 2, 2010. Adrian was born on July 3, 1991, to Michael and Ma- rie Pinson in Austin. He graduated from Hays High School in 2009 and we were all so proud of him.

Adrian always knew how to brighten up someone's day, just with his smile. Parents, Michael and Marie Pinson; siblings, Mark, Mikey, Chris, Zach and Ashley; grandparents, Alfredo and Eu- genia Hernandez, Gilbert and Beverly Pinson, Irene Acosta, Dominga Esca- milla and Dorothy Pinson; and many aunts, uncles and cousins survive Adrian.

Montage Continued from pg. 1C hand, call Pet Poison Helpline, 800- 213-6680. For a $35 fee, receive initial consultation and follow-up calls. Don't try to capture the snake. If fea- sible, take a digital photo. Remove jewelry and tight clothing. Keep bite level with the heart. Wash bite with warm soapy water, if patient is human. Don't use old first aid remedies: no tourniquet, no ice, no cutting the wound and sucking out the venom. Too, no pain meds and no alcohol. For a coral snake bite, wrap the ex- tremity with an elastic pressure ban- dage. Start from the point closest to the heart and wrap towards the fingers or toes. Vern Meyer sent word that his black cat, Hershey, recently sat proudly by the driveway with a coral snake that measured right at 24 inches without the head. "The snake was almost dead by the time we saw it. She had mangled it and was waiting for it to die, so she could have dinner. She's also brought home rattlesnakes, other snakes, mice, lizards, geckos, and birds. For only 8 pounds, she is quite the hunter." Dogs and cats are about 20 times more likely to be bitten by venomous snakes than people and are about 25 times more likely to die if bitten. A dog or cat is about 300 times more likely to be bitten by a Venomous snake than to get rabies. At least two Mountain City dog resi- dents were bit by rattlesnakes last week. Local vets carry rattlesnake vaccine for dogs, which greatly lessens the effect of a rattlesnake bite. The first injection takes several weeks to take effect. And, the vaccine has no effect on coral snake bites. Beth Smith sent a quick reminder, "Even if you are home and working in the backyard, you will want to keep the front of the house closed and locked up as always." And, I have a quick reminder for you. I need tidbits! Leave a message at 512- 268-5678 or email ptom5678@gmail. com. Thanks! Love, Pauline Buda Bits Continued from pg. 1C Like to play Texas Hold-em?

Odds & Ends Continued from pg. 1C Some 15 members of the St. John Lutheran Women's Guild and Pastor Carlson Jakubik met for the regular monthly meeting in the home of Raymond and Myr- fie Heideman on June 5. After enjoying a carry-in lunch, the meeting opened with a pro- gram by Pastor Jakubik with scripture reading, various superstitions and traditions of wedding ceremonies in various countries, as well as celebrations. Gloria Maier presented some ideas on how to enhance the Harvest Festival booths, games and the work force. Jean Collier brought the festive Christ- mas tree skirt she made for the raffle, which will be held along with other items at the Harvest Festival on October 2 at the Uhland Community Center. ooo Coming to wish Myrtle Heideman a happy 84 birthday was: Herbert and Pauline Schwerffeger, Daniel and Sharon Heideman, Den- nis, Kim and Maddy Heide- man and Becca Schultz. Also stopping by were Don, Tracie and Logan Crowell. Thanks, Pauline, for the good angel food cake and to all who came with the nice cards and gifts including the ladies of the Guild for their birthday wishes and cards - you too, Marie and Ernie. e.. As I settled down in my rocking chair (well, I am 84 years old) Monday morning to enjoy my second cup of coffee and watch the hum- ming birds fight for "feeding rights," I noticed one of the feeders looked as if some- thing was wrapped around it, even though a few of the birds were feeding from it. Yea! Something was wrapped around it, a three-to-four foot reptile that we call a chicken/ rat snake! I did not practice catch and release as I have parakeets on my flower porch. Believe me, for a while I thought "old age" had really caught up with me. ..1 Sympathy is extended to Betty Jean Wisian and other members of the family in the death of Calvin He- man of Lockhart, brother of Betty Jean.
