When you close your gates …
You re-open at 101% full. On Wednesday, LCRA closed the last floodgate at Mansfield Dam and re-opened Lake Travis for recreation. Lakes Buchanan, Inks and Travis are now open. Lakes LBJ and Marble Falls will remain closed until at least Friday, November 9, because of debris and unsafe conditions caused by the recent flooding.
When you vote …
It matters. The race for two open “at large” seats on the Lakeway City Council was a close one. Candidate Wendi Severance trailed Higginbotham by only three votes.
When you vote early …
You’re not alone. Travis County residents turned out in full presidential-level voting mode and tallied over 3,000 votes per hour. Here are the final election results.
When you turn pro …
Buh-bye NCAA. Former Lake Travis High School golf star, Kristen Gillman, will forgo her final two years of NCAA eligibility at Alabama and join the LPGA Tour as a rookie in 2019.
When you have a past …
Upcycle that. On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale introduced you to Eco Estate Jewelry. With the holidays approaching, estate jewelry may be the perfect gift for lots of people on your list, yourself included.
