Section A Page 26 Fort Worth Lake From Page 23 aid Stephanie Booker of Carrollton was maimed by the propeller of a speedboat that landed on her smaller craft just off a marina in a no-wake zone Even before a Labor Day deadline set for the task force's recommendations the county will step up lake patrols and tighten enforcement of current laws Lucas said :"There are some solutions to stop the madness" and change "Lewisville from being one of the most dangerous to one of the safest in the state of Texas" Moseley said ' State Rep Burt Solomons RCarrollton co-chairman of the task force said he will push for passage of a bill in the next legislative session to license pleasure boat operators and change boating regulations to set speed limits and require insurance Solomons noted that there are no laws setting boat speed limits unless the boats are in a designated no-wake zone - In the meantime Solomons said the task force will among other things consider placing lifeguards at the lake's swimming areas "Historically every Labor Day every Fourth of July we have drownings at state park lakes and I think we can do something about that" Solomon said "To me it's a disgrace an absolute disgrace to put kids in an area without a lifeguard" -Aside from the water-safety task force Sen Jane Nelson R-Flower Mound said she is organizing a Ltwisville Lake Watch a sort of "neighborhood crime watch" for Baptists From Page 23 vienical "All Church Build" sponsOred by the Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity It will be a return visit to Fort Worth for the fellowship which held its first official national assembly in Fort Worth in 1992 Moderate Baptists who were ousted from control of the Southern Baptist Convention by coniervatives after a decade of tumultuous political battles chartered the fellowship as a "church within a church" in 1991 'Although not officially a separate denomination the fellowship has its own national conventions a separate headquarters in Atlanta that accepts money from churches and a mission board that supports 63 missionaries and helps finance moderate-backed seminaries such as Baylor's Truett Seminary Baptists who support the fellowship are divided over whether the group should declare itself a separate denomination "We are split over that" said Sherman citing a professional poll done in March that showed that about half of the 500 fellowship :supporters who were polled by tele'phone wanted to become a separate denomination "It's going to be a topic of conversation but I think it's in the future" But conservative leaders of the national Southern Baptist Convention already treat the fellow-'ship as a rival denomination The fellowship has grown from 391 contributing churches and receipts of $45 million in May 1991 when it was chartered to 1377 contributing churches and receipts of $112 million in 1994 Sherman said A $13 million annual budget is expected to be adopted during the Fort Worth meeting : Conservatives who control the 155 million-member Southern Baptist Convention believe in a literalist view of the Bible and require that employees accept their view of biblical inerrancy the be: lief that the Bible is without error historically scientifically and the Moderate Baptists voice strong belief in the Bible but contend that : conservatives are violating his toric Baptist traditions by not al' lowing individuals enough freedom of conscience to interpret the : Scriptures for themselves : The Thursday night opening of the fellowship will center on a new : I 600-word mission statement of : the

skeptical about the task force idea but he said yesterday that he is confident that it will help "put the lid back on" the lake Booker who has hired a private detective to help trace the couple whose boat injured his daughter said authorities have collected teal-colored chips from the boat's hull Lucas confirmed that "chips and other forensic evidence" were found but said that tracing the boat

Theological Seminary in Kansas City Kan Other speakers will include author-evangelist Tony Campo lo and the Rev Richard Jackson a former superchurch pastor in Phoenix who is now a Texas-based evangelist The Southern Baptist denomination's conservative-controlled Executive Committee voted in I 994 to refuse contributions from churches funneled through the Atlanta fellowship and asked its other agencies including the six official Southern Baptist seminaries also to reject money given through the moderate group Although many saw it as a punitive move toward the fellowship Sherman said churches have not deserted the moderate organization "It seems to have worked in our favor" Sherman said Support for the fellowship has increased he said Many churches such as First Baptist Church of Arlington and Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth support both the moderate fellowship and most of the programs of the national Southern Baptist Convention Also many state Baptist conventions which are independent of the national convention still officially accept money through the moderate fellowship The Baptist General Convention of Texas which is controlled by moderates angered many conservatives last year by voting to accept money from the moderate fellowship and count it as part of the Cooperative Pro- gram the official unified giving plan of Southern Baptists area --- 1!3-80

"There's a generalconsensus to be considerate" Hanshaw said "I don't think there's been a final consensus on that issue" Even if the association takes a position against flyover ads it has no way to enforce the policy said Hanshaw who said the group consists of "a handful" of club owners Arlington Mayor Richard Greene said that although he would like to see all of the banners disappear he is pleased that some of the clubs have dropped them "That's very good news as far as I'm concerned" Greene said "I wish it was something they'd all agree to" Because airspace is controlled by the Federal Aviation Administration neither the city nor the Texas Rangers can do anything about banner-towing airplanes US Rep Joe Barton an Ennis Republican whose district includes parts of Arlington has reintroduced a bill that would ban low-flying planes from The Ballpark's airspace during games Barton was able to halt the flyovers during the All-Star Game with the help of the Federal Aviation
