This year, the 12 musicians of Die frohliche Dorfmusik traveled from their homes near Braunfels, Germany, to entertain their American “cousins” with “Alpenrock” and traditional Bohmis-che folk music. German-American Society member Bill Moltz said the crowds love the authentic German sound. BAND PERFORMANCES ■ Catch Die frohliche Dorfmusik, the authentic German band, for two more Wurstfest performances in the Big Tent at 6:45 and 9 p.m. tonight. “It’s happy music, and these guys get everyone involved,” he said. “It really gets us back to our heritage." While the band performs in the Big Tent, audience members clap and lock arms to schunkeln, rock back and forth to the beat. w ? jr Ti It r 1 «*■ IFfJ Audience participation is a large part of Die frbliche its oerro Council to consider pilot program for system By Scott Mahon Staff Writer If the New Braunfels City Council gives its approval, some residents would be part of a pilot program for a fully automated sanitation system. The city’s solid waste manager, James Ballowe, proposed the pilot program Monday during a council workshop. Ballowe said if the experiment were successful, he would recommend implementing a city-wide fully automated system sometime next AT A GLANCE I What: New Braunfels City Council » When: 6:30 p.m. Nov. 8 I Where: Municipal Building, 424 S. Caste!! Ave. year. New Braunfels always has used a manual sanitation collection system, which costs the city about $1,342,000 a year to operate, Ballowe said. Currently, the sanitation department uses nine rear-load trucks with three-mem-ber crews to collect residential garbage twice a week for about 14,300 customers. Each crew collects about 45 tons to 50 tons of garbage a week, in a 40-hour work week. But Ballowe said manual collection has its pitf alls, including more workman's compensation claims by sanitation workers.

River of Life building ministries, activities for children By Leigh Jones Staff Writer River of life Assembly of God Church is at the right place at the right time. Surrounded by an explosion of new neighborhoods and young families, the church has more than doubled its attendance in the last year. “ l’liis is a very exciting time,” stud Pastor Joe Helms. “I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.” With three New Braunfels Independent School District schools nearby, the church is building its ministries to cater to children. A new outdoor playground is in the works, and when the new sanctuary is complete, the existing building will be turned over to the children, decked out with video games and “fooseball” tables. “On Sunday mornings, the kids will have lesson time followed by recreation time,” Helms said.-“We want to make church fun.”I BLUEBONNET Jeep When River of Life moved to its current location, the congregation moved into a new 8,000-square-feet facility, but only 4,200 square feet were finished inside. Phase two of the constmction project will start after Christmas. In April, they will move into a new sanctuary, complete with steeple and new “churchy" exterior aesthetics. "The expansion will give us more room to do things,’’ I lelms said. “The additions to the outside of the building will attract more people and let this community know we are worshipping here.” Alexis Meyers, who teaches one of the Missionettes growth classes for young girls, said more space would be welcome. “As we grow, we’re starting to feel space constraints,’’ she said. “We’re really excited and looking forward to that extra space.” Meyers and her class of 7 to 10-year-olds just completed the art unit of their Missionettes curriculum.
