Ouadalupe River outfitters alike expressed reservations about tub ing safety regulations being proposed by the city of New Braunfels at a spe cial meeting of the Comal County Water Oriented Recreation District on Wednesday night The citys proposed tubing regula tions come as a part of a settlement concerning a woman who drowned in the Ouadalupe River in 1992 As part of the settlement the city is required to pass an ordinance requiring all outfitters to educate their customers about the dangers of the river and the city would post river flows daily as well as a recommendation to use life preservers The city would also try to ask other governmental entities such as WORD to go along with the proposed tubing regulations TJic regulations would affect tubing inside the New Braunfels city limits The WORD district does not go into the city of New Braunfels Board member Bill Mayo asked WORD attorney Holly Oilman whether WORD should get involved We arc involved because we have the same jurisdiction of the she said It will impact the outfitters who allow tubers to go into New Braun Then Mayo asked New Braunfels Councilwoman Cathy Talcott who attended the meeting what the city was hoping WORD would do about the proposed regulations Talcott said the city was still in the factfinding process and was not asking WORD to pass any rule We arc hoping to get input from outfitters on

1996 murder rate for area By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Comal County saw a jump in mur ders in 1996 but newlysworn in Sher iff Bob Holder said he does not believe the numbers are a cause fpr panic Accordingto Holder there were six rHurtiers in 1996 upl from zero in 1995 and one in 1994 The city report ed one murder for 1996 the same number as in 1995 In 1994 the city had two murders Of the

supply Garden Ridge Mayor jay p Millikin said he has talked to the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority about acquiring Canyon Lake raw water rights Because of the possibility the Awards Aqujfer Authority Board will cut how much the city can pump from the aquifer Millikin said H is important for Garden Ridge to find an alternative source of water before it is too late The idea of purchasing Canyon Lake water rights is to do it before the cost of raw water substantially escalates because of the water challenges all communities Millikin said The mayor said the city is looking to purchase one to two acre feet a day between to gallons per This is a requirement for the long term when we get a water transmis sion line to the city from either New Braunfels Utilities Canyon Regional Water Authority or Millikin said He said if the city can purchase raw water rights it will be prepared once a transmission line comes to the city If we wait five or seven years before a transmission line gets to the city there may not be any Canyon Lake water Jeft for Millikin said Millikin has been talking to NBU about the possibility of purchasing to gallons per day Tlwt decision will wait this spring after the EAA determines how much water both Garden Ridge and NBU can pump the aquifer The purchase of NBU water rights would be for shortterm water needs Millikin said Millikin said he will ask the city water commission to consider his rec ommendation at its meeting this month The water commission will then study it and make a recommendation to the city council at its February meeting GBRA General Manager Bill West said the discussion concerning alter native water sources has been an issue since his first day on the job as gener al manager I have been here for three years and the first thing that came up when I first walked through the door was the Turn to Rights Page 2 It seems character doesnt much matter any Page 4
