When you mistake a buoy for a body …
The report of a body floating in Lake Travis sent multiple agencies rushing to search for a possible victim Tuesday night, but the report turned out to be about a mooring buoy. Oooops.
Alright, alright, alright …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale introduced you to this local artist who is participating in the Mack, Jack & McConaughey event this weekend.
Run, run, run as fast as you can …
Hill Country Galleria welcomed Lake Travis’ newest restaurant to town. This premium beer bar is an Austin original and features exciting, one-of-a-kind brews on tap. Just in time for spring when sipping craft beer on a sunny day overlooking the Central Plaza pavilion is perfection.
When you don’t want a city center …
After the Lakeway Zoning and Planning Commission gave the proposed city center plans a big thumbs down emoji, Legend Communities is shifting to a typical single-family development … with a strip of commercial (mattress store & nail salon).
What to say when you wake up, and your car is gone …
Lock your car doors. That’s what the Lakeway Police Department is saying after 15 cars were burglarized and four cars were stolen. All of the recent incidents have involved people leaving their cars unsecured; and in some instances, people have left their vehicles unlocked with the keys in the ignition.
For when it’s time to find a new place to live …
