Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Tuesday, December 23, 2003City to offer unlimited trash pickup
New Braunfels is giving a Christmas present this year to residents who use the city’s sanitation service. Residential customers will get an “unlimited collection day” on their first regular collection day after Christmas.
The unlimited collection day was approved by city council as part of the Pay-As-You-Go program. Crews will pick up untagged household waste such as garbage and green waste. However, officials said residents should not overfill their trash cans to the point that they are too heavy for crews to lift. Brush should be cut in lengths no greater than four feet and bundled. However, bulky waste such as furniture and appliances will not be picked up.
The unlimited collection day is Dec. 29 for residents who’s collection days are Mondays and Thursdays. For those who’s collection days are Tuesdays and Fridays, the unlimited collection day is Friday.
“Regular garbage collection under the parameters of PA YI’ will resume on the first regular collection day after the unlimited collection,'’ Short said.
"Under the PAYF program, residents are allowed to place the equivalent of three 30-gallon containers of garbage at the curb on each collection day. Garbage in excess of that limit must have an extra garbage sticker attached to it in order for the excess garbage to be picked up," Public Works Director Mike Short said. “Untagged excess garbage will be left at the curb.”
Residents can purchase extra garbage stickers at the Municipal Building.

BRICK TOSSED AT SANTA - It
isn’t always easy being Santa Claus.
Schertz police assisted a man dressed as jolly St. Nick Sunday afternoon on Interstate 35 — after someone dropped a brick through his windshield.
“Santa,” an off-duty federal officer who was going to a children’s Christmas function, escaped injury in the mid-afternoon incident, Schertz Chief of Police Steve Cantrell reported.
The man was driving southbound on Interstate 35 about three miles north of Garden Ridge Pottery when the brick was tossed off an overhead bridge, Cantrell said.
The incident, which follows fall cases in Comal County where pumpkins were dropped from an interstate bridge, is under investigation.
“We helped Santa get on his way,” Cantrell said.NEW BRAUNFELS
MAN ARRESTED ON CHARGES OF MOLESTATION — A 32-year-old New Braunfels man is being held in Comal County jail on allegations that he molested two children.
Comal County Sheriff’s detective lim Rose arrested William G.
Ferrell Jr. Friday and booked him on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. If proven, the allegation is a first degree felony punishable by five to 99 years in state prison and a $10,000 fine.
Ferrell’s bail is $100,000. Allegations surfaced in June that Ferrell molested two boys.
TEXAS ADM SAYS IT HAS CLONED WHITE-TAILED DEER —
Bambi meet Dewey, Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine’s newest clone.
The school Monday announced it had cloned a white-tailed deer — a fawn named “Dewey” — who was born in May. Dewey is believed to be the first successfully cloned deer, said officials at A&M, which has cloned a total of five species, including cattle, goats, pigs and a cat.
“Dewey is developing normally for a fawn his age and appears healthy,” said Dr. MarkWesthusin, who heads the project. “When he was bom, we scooped him up in our anus to make sure he was fine and happy. He has been bottle fed and spoiled rotten his whole life.”
Westhusin said the*school didn’t disclose the news until it performed genetic testing that confirmed Dewey was a genetic copy of his donor, a South Texas buck who was considered a huge trophy.
Researchers say the breakthrough could help conserve endangered deer species.
N ATI O NPASO ROBLES, Calif.
EARTHQUAKE ROCKS CALIFORNIA COAST — An
earthquake rocked California’s central coast Monday and shook the state from Los Angeles to San Francisco, collapsing old downtown buildings in this small town and killing at least two people in the rubble.
The 11:16 a.m. quake — its magnitude measured at 6.5 — pitched the roof of Paso Robles’ 1892 clock tower building into a street, crushing a row of parked cars in this San Luis Obispo County town about 20 miles east of the epicenter.
TWo people were confirmed dead in Paso Robles, said Ron Alsop, emergency services coordinator in the largely rural county of about 250,000 people. A third person was missing, he said.
The main shock was centered about 11 miles north of the coastal town of Cambria and was immediately followed by at least five aftershocks of magnitude larger than 3.3.
PAKISTAN INVESTIGATES ITS NUCLEAR SCIENTISTS -,
Pakistan has questioned the
founder of its nuclear program as part of investigations into whether any of its scientists leaked sensitive technology to other countries, the Foreign Ministry said Monday.
Scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan is not in custody but was questioned in connection with “the ongoing debriefing sessions’’ of a “very small number of scientists,” ministry spokesman Masood Khan said.
“No restrictions have been imposed on him,” he added.
Pakistan’s government strongly denies allegations it spread nuclear technology to countries such as Iran, North Korea and Libya but acknowledged Monday the possibility that individual scientists may have acted without authorization.
In Washington, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said President Gen. Pervez Musharraf has assured the United States that Pakistan is not offering technology related to weapons of mass destruction to Libya and Iran.
