When you should spend the night …
If drinking and driving is your plan for getting around this Labor Day weekend, you’re being targeted. The Bee Cave Police Department will concentrate on drunk driving and intersection violations this weekend. It’s part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s “Plan While You Can” Labor Day campaign. The campaign aims to reduce the number of crashes and save lives by urging you to plan a sober ride as part of your holiday weekend festivities.
When the lights turn on on Friday night …
When you go back and forth …
That was a good volley. Two of the best volleyball teams in the area — Lake Travis and Vandegrift — had a 5-game marathon on Tuesday night. When the courts cleared, it was the Vipers that went back on the bus with a 3-2 victory.
When you can’t find a seat …
You sit on the floor, but that should never happen. Leander ISD buses were upgraded with AC this year. But now they need more seats, or fewer students riding the bus. Or more help wanted signs. The district is short 29 bus drivers.
When you’re a giver …
You can make an impact, whether it’s time or money. This Lake Travis High School junior worked about 30 hours a week this summer and then donated half of his earnings, $920, to Helping Hand Home. The organization provides foster care and adoption services as well as residential treatment for kids who have experienced trauma and neglect. Matthew appreciates what he has, especially Oreo cookies.
When you hang out at the barre …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale gave you a sneak peek at the shiny new Pure Barre Lakeway studio and shared her story about the health benefits after five years under the barre.
