FLYNTENGLAND Staff Writer For the animals sake I just dont recommend them to do saidCpmal County Animal Control Officer Steve McKin about taking pets on river outings Putting animals in rafts and tubes doesnt pose a threat to humans McKin said but its just not safe for the animals Last weeks incident where a rottweiler bit several people was an isolated one he said It wasnt really the animals he said He was more or less provoked by the behavior of the peo The rottweiler is still being kept for observation and will be for a total often days McKin said Several breeds of dogs take to water naturally McKin said But add the factors of a swift current and crowds of rowdy drunken humans nature just hasnt equipped the animals to handle the situation The river can prove deadly for pets A person came down the river who had a Chinese McKin said The animal got swept away by the current About a week later we found the dog in the river it was he said I dont recommend it simply because the animals dont enjoy Zero Rivers of Rockin R River Rides said A dog riding in a I dont recommend it simply because the animals dont enjoy it Its too easy for the animal to get lost or Zero Rivers raft has to shift its weight around like one riding in the back of a truck only more so he said Its too easy for the animal to get lost or he said I dont prohibit it Rivers said In fact Rivers has seen some unique pets take successful river rides Weve had a par rot on the he said Last week someone brought a minia ture goat never a cat or a pig though as far as I can remem Rivers said McKins best advice is to leave a dog at a kennel or with a friend while riding the river If you can get a life jacket for one that would be all he said Pet life jackets can be bought he said but I dont think the outfitters have them theres not a big demand for McKin said But if you get separated you still might never find your dog McKin said The Comal County Sheriffs Department will soon be giving the County Commissioners and department heads a list of recommen dations on how a more longrange security plan may be imple mented according to a report given to the Commissioners Court Thursday I would hope we can have a list of recommendations formally ready by said Sheriff Jack Bremer Brerner said he already has a list of possible options However it would make more sense to discuss the recomrrfendations before con sidering the other options he said The discussion of the buildings current security plan was spurred by the incident last week in which former Bluebonnet Ford gener al manager and former city council candidate Gary Kahlig was arrested after he allegedly parked a bike outside the courthouse with a loaded assault rifle chained to it District Clerk Margaret Herbrich said the incident caused her great concern and she feels there should be some sort of early warning system in place County Judge Carter Casteel favored the idea and said the department heads may be able to form their own system in which they notify each other There was very little communication among the department heads last week I think we can develop a tree for calling people and do that said Casteel Bremer said this was a possibility However he declined going into any further detail regarding the plan He said if it is discussed in depth it would be easy for someone to get around the security This is not something we want to talk about in the media If we tell all the details anyone will be able to beat he said However Bremer said he was satisfied with the way the current system worked during last weetcs incident It worked exactly like it was supposed he said In other business the Commissioners Court approved the OnSite Sewerage Facility Order amendments which may limit lot sizes by specifying perimeters around water wells and septic tanks The order must now be sent to Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission for approval After it is approved b TNRCC it will be sent back to the county for adoption Once the county adopts it it will be sent back to TNRCC for adoption at which point it will become effective County Attorney Nathan Rheinlander said there are sev eral changes underway at TNRCC and there is no way to tell how long the entire process could take The amendments which have caused great debate among devel opers and the county were passed after no one appeared for the scheduled public hearing The court also adopted a resolution opposing the Jail Standards Commission Action attempting to take the revenue generated from inmate pay phones out of the general fund and put it in a fund designed to pay for special needs and requests of the inmates River flow high for tubes but great for rafts outfitters say Weekend revelers left behind tons of trash despite efforts to keep river clean By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer The weekend is upon New Braunfels once again and that means its also time for the endless number of tourists to begin pouring into the city and into the rivers People planning on spending time on the river can expect an exciting time Larry Moltz Man ager of Hydro Operations at GuadalupeBlanco River Authority said the current level of the reservoir is at ft He said the Army Corps of Engineers will probably require that the GBRA continue to release water at approxi mately the current level which is 628 cubic feet per second Until it gets below 910 the Corps probably wont let us cut it back too said Moltz Jim Inman manager for the Water Oriented Recreation District said the current river flow should make tubing a little trickier and should be ideal for tubing and ratting Youre much more apt to get hurt at 580 than at he said Inman also added that at a level of 580 cfs it would be almost impossible for anyone to go over Hueco Falls without turning over He said ifs just a matter of rising water and the higher it gets the riskier it gets With the weekend tourists residents will also have to deal with river litter Fonda Wetsel of 850 Bluff Ridge said the Fourth of July weekend left the river a complete mess She said she and her son collected about 400 pounds of aluminum cans in a very small segment of the river That pickup was not even close to making a River Update clean she wrote in a letter to the editor The feeling of overwhelming odds made the task seem endless and Inman said that generally the river was clean er this year compared to previous years Howev er certain segments of the river tend to be more littered than others and the lower section of the river is usually hit the hardest This is mainly due to the fact that a larger number of people use this section of the river said Inman Bill Mayo treasurer said the main problem he saw this past weekend was the water cannons and glass containers on the river He also said many of the same problems with disor derly tourists were present The overall attitude of the people on the riv er was much calmer this year but at the same we still have our same said Mayo However a lot of the trash on the river can be eliminated by people using the mesh bag they are supplied with Outfitters generally give out one mesh bag for every cooler the group has The indi viduals are then encouraged to place their trash in fhe bag until they reach a spot where they can get put and throw it in a trash can said Inman HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL One person who lives on the Guadalupe River said her son quickly picked up 400 pounds of aluminum cans Thats why we have those spots Its not just so people can get off the river and go to the bath room Its also so they can throw their trash in a barrel and not in the he said Inman said tubers can request additional mesh bags from the courtesy patrol He said the patrol also has the white bags used for river cleanup He said people can ask for one of these bags and when it is full the bag can be left with a business He said businesses recognize the bags and allow them to be left with them or in their dumpsters People want to help and we let he said The idea is to just keep the trash off the riv For subscription or advertising information call the HeraldZeitung at 6259f 44
