NEW BRAUNFELS - In a move to keep the Comal and Guadalupe rivers from being trashed-out by tubers, New Braunfels City Council on Monday banned beer cans and other disposable containers on the rivers beginning Jan. 1, 2012.

The ban was approved - on a 5-1 vote - after one protester had been arrested, another had thrown a volleyball-sized wad of dollar bills at the council, a lawsuit had been promised, and citizens had paraded to the podium for an hour to express their support or opposition. Councilor Steven Digges was the dissenting vote. Councilor Richard Zapata was unable to attend Monday's meeting.
