When 100 people per day move here …
Austin’s housing market broke a record in October for the number of homes sold. And the number of homes sold last month in the Lake Travis-Westlake area is higher than that of any other October on record.
When you want fewer residences …
The Square on Lohmans development in Lakeway — a 60-acre swath of land that has been in a holding pattern for more than two years — received the thumbs up to move forward. The very first proposal would have brought 1000 residences to the land. The new plan caps the number of residences at 130.

The Vandegrift High School band won first place at the Bands of America Grand National Championship in Indiana on Saturday with the top score of 97.175. The Vandegrift Band placed first in prelims and won best music, best visual and best general effect captions.
When you’re at home with Baker Mayfield …
In under two seasons as a professional quarterback, Baker Mayfield’s estimated net worth is around $12 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

If you want to avoid an emergency call to a plumber this Thanksgiving, don’t pour your used turkey grease down the drain. Recycling Thanksgiving oil and grease is the cheap alternative. Here’s why turkey grease shouldn’t go down the drain.
