One-by-one, duct-taped, cardboard boats and their riders were launched down the TUbe Chute in hopes of making it to the end of the pool. The Through the Chute Summer Boat Build and River Expo, sponsored by New Braunfels Parks and Recreation and New Braunfels Yacht Club, was geared toward using the facility during off season, said Jared Werner, City of New Braunfels athletic programs supervisor. Boats were launched three times each in the competition; many were decorated with themes. Jason Norton, a San Antonio teacher, sported a wig as he rushed down the chute on his raft-like boat. He decided to give his boat a “Castaway” theme after Tom Hanks’ movie. “My friends and I do stuff like this all the time,” Norton said. “It's great to get together and hang out.” Norton’s boat won the “Most Creative” award because he attached a volleyball, See BOATS, Page 6A LAURA McKENZlE/Heraid-Zeitung John Archer and Lori Gregson make it through the Comal River tube chute with their cardboard boat Intact.

HERITAGE Kindermasken, Folkfest make old new again WASHINGTON — Rivals in a divided government, President Barack Obama and the most powerful Republican in Congress split their differences to stave off a federal shutdown that neither combatant was willing to risk. Their compromise is the result of a battle pitting the enduring power of the presidential veto and the White BoetmeT House soapbox — despite a “shellacking” in the last election — against a strong-willed GOP House speaker vaulted into office by a voter revolt against Washington’s free-spending ways. The resulting measure will bleed about $40 billion from the day-to-day budgets of domestic agencies over just the next six months, the biggest rollback of such government programs in history. It allows Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to claim his GOP shock troops had put Cabinet department operating budgets on track toward levels in place before Obama took office. In the end, the White House had to meet Boehner more than halfway on spending. On the other side was a strong-willed Obama, who mostly succeeded in forcing Republicans to cave in on dozens of controversial conservative policy prescriptions — including rolling track environmental protections and cutting off Planned Parenthood from taxpayer assistance while protecting favored programs like education, clean energy and medical research. It was, in short, the type of split-the-differences deal that a political scientist might have predicted from the start, given the realities of divided government. Obama stood firm against GOP attempts to block the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to issue global warming rules and other reversals of environmental regulations. Obama’s wins on the environment were matched by a bitter battle in See DEAL, Page 7A Gmtar NrnjRigftfc Hom WHfcn Association ■ LIFE, 1C Quinceañera party still a popular ritual ■ SPORTS, 1B Unicorns take district crown ■ NEWS, 8A * OFCOBPOMS By Megan Holt The Herald-Zeitung Saturday’s Kindermasken Parade, believed to have begun in 1856 in New Braunfels, drew in ballerinas, monkeys and Indians this year. Originally called Kindermaskenball, meaning “children's masked dance,” the parade allows children to dress up in costumes and march down San Antonio and Seguin streets. More than 300 people attended the parade Saturday morning, said Tina Undeman, Heritage Society of New Braunfels parade coordinator. “When I was in the parade, we almost included the whole family in planning the costumes,” Lindeman said. “We’d start a month ahead and See HERITAGE, Page 6A Brenda De Stefano, right, teaches Kayla Porter, 7, how to make a fabric yo-yo during Folkfest on Saturday in New Braunfels. % ;
