Friends Emanuel Padilla and Rolando Rios take a breather on a Bernegger Trail bench after swimming in the strong currents of the Wolf River last Wednesday. The river crested Friday at nearly nine feet. Esteban Guerroro, Ulises Rios, Holly Boyce and Tyler Leon are resting on the top of dock poles. They all had an afternoon off after working on area farms, at Burger King and babysitting. They said the water was very cool and refreshing and agreed that they should not swim long, as the currents could overtake them.
