Heraki-Zeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Just a few of the cans picked up during the day Saturday by volunteers for the Friends For Rivers Guadalupe River Clean Up. By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Wr tor_ It was everything it was previously billed to be and more. Friends For Rivers annual volunteer river clean-up saw 700 volunteers, including river outfitters, government officials, local civic organizations, San Antonio neighbors, volunteers from across the state and even late vacationers working together to clean up the Guadalupe River after the summer season. The project was climaxed by a special ceremony held at the end of the day at Rockin R river outfitters where several local and state officials spoke. “The volunteerism and esprit de corps that many of us had today as we trounced around the river picking up cans (was wonderful),” said State Rep. Edmund Kuempel. “It was an enlightening day. We were out for about three and halfhours this morning and it was an experience. “We have what should be a very pristine part of the river and a very pristine part of Texas here on the Guadalupe River flowing through Comal County, but people tend to forget and we hope this will help educate them about the ecology and about keeping the river clean for the future. It was a very enjoyable day because a lot of good people that put in a lot of hard hours of work today.” The cleanup was from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Rockin-R River Outfitters in Gruene donated their place of business for an evening celebration and many other river outfitters provided boots and equipment for the cleanup. “I was at the site at Rockin R and we got 248 plus people, not including the people who just showed up and didn’t know anything about the river clean-up but saw our booth, came over and asked questions and went out with their tubes and a WORD net trash bag and wanted to be a pan of it,” said Dierdre Hisler, Guadalupe State Park Ranger. “It wasn’t just community organizations and environmentally correct organizations, these were people who play on this river. I want to say that Donna Murphy has been incredible. She is so devoted to cleaning up the river. I think she deserves some recognition for pulling all these people together — the outfitters, Friends for Rivers, WORD, the General Land Office. We had a group of nurses from Brooks, we had d vers from San Antonio, we had scouts and we had families. That’s so important until we educate everyone. Hotel/Motel taxes up by 11% From staff reports Figures released by the City of New Braunfels indicated that the hotel/motel occupancy tax figures for the second quarter of 1993 are significantly up 11.2 percent over 1992 figures. This marks the 19th consecutive quarter of increases. “We are extremely pleased with this double-digit increase, when you consider the highest occupancy levels in our hotels and motels occur during the second and third quarters. Therefore they are the most difficult periods in which to show an increase after a record-setting year,” said Jim Scheele, Jr. Director of the Convention & Visitors Bureau of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce. A recent study compiled by PFK Consulting Hospitality Advisory Services, showed that New Braunfels had the highest occupancy levels in the month of July compared to all Texas markets. In fact, the New Braunfels/San Marcos area had a 96.6 percent occupancy compared to second place San Antonio which had 88.4 percent and third place Arlington with 84.7 percent. “New Braunfels has always been a strong market during the summer months and this survey {Moves that fact,” stated Scheele. The New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau ran a Spring and Summer Ad Campaign for 26 weeks, starting in February which brought 39,531 inquiries. “This is a 39 percent increase over 1992 Spring Ad Campaign figures,” stated Scheele. “Of course, there are many other factors that have helped the tourist season, such as good weather and strong advertising campaigns by the visitor industry ” To date, the Chamber has received a total of 118,907 contacts, which represent a 26 percent increase over 1992 figures. “We are still reaching strong markets in the Dallas/Fort Worth area as well as the Houston market and increasing our presence in the international markets of Mexico,” said Scheele.
