on the river To the editor I applaud the council for making the right decision regarding the cooler Where is it written in stone that you must be drinking to have fun Lauderdale had enough years ago with the Summer Break prob lems and closed it The argument for hydration just doesnt hold water since alcohol is the worse thing to drink when you want to stay Even soft drinks should be avoided in favor of pure As my Coast Guard Canoe Safety Instructor once Drinkers are Steve Howard New Braunfels Council needs to be thanked To the editor I just want to be one of the first to thank our council members for protecting us and our I dont care what kind of money these tourists might bring to we need to be sure to make things clear to We moved here 6 years ago from Houston after spending much time here in my youth in order to offer our children a way of life we pre We have spent many days on the and we have seen some inappropriate Of Ive seen this same behavior in HEB so Ive spent time teaching my children what to ignore and how not to Now we have all these great new restrictions to protect us on the river thank you so I hope with all my heart that you will join me and my children the first tubing I know it will be a joyous occasion when I stuff all the needed drinks and snacks in my one sixpack size of if you I will pro vide them each with their own personal proper size cooler and you can chase these each time they float I know you wont I look for ward to our day of relaxation and enjoyment it will be nice for me to not be tied to the extra tube with all the nourishment for the family this What time shall we meet Brenda Gorrell New Braunfels Councils rules unreasonable To the editor As a person who enjoys bringing my family to camp beside and float on the Guadalupe each I cannot believe the unreasonable restric tions that the city council has decided to My family consists of a 4 yearold son in a life teenage and usually one or more friends of How is anyone expected to enjoy floating on the river with only a 6pack size cooler to keep our drinks and food cold we do enjoy drinking a beer while but we also carry along a variety of sandwich and miscellaneous snacks that need to be kept Are we now expected to trail along multi ple 6pack size coolers to carry all of our sup plies We have double floats that we bought 2 years ago from your local They have cool ers built into them which will hold more than 6 Are we no longer going to be allowed to use them I guess my answer be to find another river and campground to spend my time and We have always stayed at the Lazy L Maybe if some of the other campgrounds would take Lazy example and not allow the allnight par ties that accompany the people you do not want on your river to begin men those people would be the ones to go to another And it wouldnt be those of us who follow the rules and pick up our trash who are forced to find another river and campground to Thank you for our past summers Lisa Martin
