Happy Friday! Welcome to Inauguration Day 2017.
Today, President-elect Donald Trump’s about to drop the ‘elect’ and officially become president of the United States.
In case you missed us this week …
We uncovered why folks are forming a line out the door in the mornings where the old Radio Shack used to be on 620? (Hint: “hot glazed!”)
On Thursday, we welcomed Megan Russell to the LTL writing team. Megan put together a roundup of child care options from Spicewood to Lakeway.
Looking ahead …
