Floating the Comal River could cost non-New Braunfels residents a $5 fee if its city council votes in favor of a new proposal.

When tubing the Comal River you can either rent a tube from an outfitter and use their entry point, or use your own tube and enter from one of the city’s parks.

"We spend pretty close to $1 million per year in all of the river maintenance, clean-up, and police and fire," said New Braunfels Mayor Gale Pospisil. "So we were looking at a way to try to bring in some revenue to help us to keep the river and keep the services provided for our visitors."

New Braunfels Police say the death of a Canyon High School student is the result of an assault, and not a fight.

Police were dispatched to the Comal ISD high school at 9:27 a.m. Tuesday. When they arrived, Cpt. John McDonald said officers found faculty and staff tending to the victim, identified as 15-year-old Logan Davidson.

McDonald said the suspect, another 15-year-old student, waited for Davidson outside their classroom after their first class of the day.

McDonald said the suspect used his fist to punch Davidson in the head twice, which rendered him unconscious.
