Lakeway police investigating new wave of scams

 

The Lakeway Police Department is investigating several new cases involving a recurring telephone and email scam.

Victims are contacted via phone call or email and told they have a warrant for their arrest due to missing jury duty, have won a prize or a family member has been arrested.

The suspects may identify themselves as an employee of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office or another police agency.

In all cases, the suspects convince the victim to purchase a “netSpend” Card, Green Dot Money Pak Reload Prepaid Card, Western Union, Money Gram or wire money to another bank account and then call them back with the processing number on back of the card.

The theft is often complete at that point, however in some cases the suspect calls back and asks for additional funds. Lakeway detectives are finding very little evidence to track the suspects. Phone numbers, website, email addresses and other accounts are all disabled or disconnected after short periods of time, making these cases very difficult to investigate and prosecute.

“Government agencies will never insist you make a payment over the phone or with a prepaid card,” Lakeway Police Chief Todd Radford said. “A credible business should not ask for a prepaid card either. If someone asks for one, you should hang up, block the number from your phone and call 911 to make a report.”

Anyone who has information or who is a victim of this scam should call Lakeway Police Department at 512-314-7590

Lakeway salutes retired brigadier general

as Fourth of July parade grand marshal

 

By Shelly Ansbach

Contributing writer

 

At first glance, Ret. Brigadier Gen. Richard T. Drury, grand marshal of the City of Lakeway’s Fourth of July parade on July 4, seems to be reserved and guarded.

It is plain to see that Drury is a private person. The Lakeway resident was reluctant to talk about himself and his career in the military. He brought a copy of his biography from the United States Air Force to the interview, laid it on my desk and said that everything I needed to know was in the biography.

But I wanted to know more. I wanted to know how he felt about his 31 1/2 years in the Air Force, what drove him to join the military, and details of his numerous combat missions. For a man who made brigadier general in 23 years, there was a lot to talk about.

General Drury was born in 1927 in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and graduated from high school at the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, N.M., at age 16. Asked why he graduated high school at such a young age, he nonchalantly replied with a smile and said, “I skipped a few grades.” He grew up largely on military posts along the border with Mexico, and followed his father’s footsteps into the military.

Drury joined the Merchant Marine in 1946 while waiting for his appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. “One of my overseas assignments in the Merchant Marine was to go to England and bring back a boatload of war brides. Very interesting,” he said.

He survived that mission to graduate from West Point, serve more than 31 years in the Air Force, including flying combat missions in Korea and Vietnam and earn a master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Drury returned to the United States in August 1969 to graduate from the Air War College in 1970 and earn assignments to Washington, D.C., Dyess Air Force Base in Texas and Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas.

He continued to climb the ranks in the Air Force with roles as director of international staff on the Inter-American Defense Board in Washington, D.C., vice commander of the 22nd Air Force at Travis Air Force Base in California and commander of U.S. Forces and the 1605th Air Base Wing in Azores where his most memorable experience was a 7.2 earthquake on New Year’s Day in 1980.

Drury’s military decorations and awards include two Distinguished Service Medals, Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit with two oak leaf clusters, Bronze Star Medal and various others.

After he retired from the United States Air Force on Jan. 1, 1982, he taught in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at UT Austin, retiring from there in 1995 as associate chairman and senior lecturer.

He married Marie in 1987, and they will celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary in July. They have a combined family of two sons, three daughters, numerous grand-children and three great-grandchildren.

Drury’s record of service has lasted well into his retirement.

He, former Lakeway mayor Charles Edwards and retired Navy captain Mike Boston, are working with Lake Travis High School principal Kim Brents to promote student interest in forming a Junior ROTC unit at the high school.

This year’s grand marshal also has volunteered for a number of Lakeway activities, including eight years on the City of Lakeway Ethics Committee with the last four years as chairman. He also serves as a Lakeway City Hall volunteer and as a member of Friends of the Park.

“I can think of no finer individual to serve as this year’s grand marshal than General Drury,” said Andra Dearing, Lakeway Parks and Recreation director and 4th of July Celebration chairwoman.

Lakeway’s Fourth of July Parade is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. July 4 starting at Live Oak Driving Range, traveling down Lakeway Drive and ending at Cross Creek. Following the parade, Drury will be the guest speaker at the Pageantry of Flags at 10:30 a.m. at Lakeway Activity Center, 105 Cross Creek.

 

 

World is Lakeway seashell collector’s oyster

 

An ocean of passion is evident in Ronald Carter’s seashell collection on display through June 29 at Lakeway Activity Center.

Carter has been an avid amateur seashell collector or “conchologist” for nearly 60 years.

The Lakeway resident’s interest began at the age of 7, in Pittsburgh of all places. In 1957, his mother brought him a small souvenir box of shells from a trip to Florida. Although living nowhere near the ocean, his passion and interest in shells was firmly set that day and continued to grow as he read books on seashells and visited museums. The annual family vacation at Sea Isle, N.J., gave him the opportunity to practice his shell collecting hobby.

Carter’s fascination with shells never went away. His collection continued to grow over the years as he bought and traded shells to include those of great rarity, beauty and interest. He now has an assortment of several thousand shells representing a portion of the 100,000-plus species known to exist in the world.

His passion in this field led him to volunteer as a docent in the malacology department of the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There he had the opportunity to introduce many children to the world of exotic shells through the use of thought-provoking stories.

After more than 40 years of work in the Houston area oil and gas industry, Carter is semi-retired. He and his wife, Beverly, reside in Lakeway and enjoy their boat on the lake whenever possible. Both of their grown children and four grandchildren live in the Austin area.

The additional time he has now is used to fully embrace this fulfilling hobby. He hopes to make travel plans to exotic locations and expand his collection even more.

Lakeway Activity Center is at 105 Cross Creek. The display is available for viewing from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

For information, call 512-261-1010.

Lake Travis Community Library Offers Programs All Summer

During the month of July, the Lake Travis Community Library will host oil and pastel artist Linda Wells in the meeting room exhibit space. A life-long Texan, Linda and her husband Fred have been residents of Lakeway since 1990. The love of nature and nature’s beauty has been her constant inspiration. The subtle colors and light of winter or the screaming vibrant reds of autumn are a thrill to her. She enjoys painting “en plein air,” outdoors on location, which allows her to get a better sense and atmosphere of a scene than work from photos alone. Although versatile and skilled in most media, Linda is most comfortable with oils and pastels and moves back and forth between the two.

Wells has spent almost 25 years as an artist and illustrator, including nine years at the Texas Wildlife department. Several of Linda’s paintings depicting scenes of Lakeway appear in Lew Carlson’s book Lakeway: Hill Country Community. In addition to her landscape work, she is also a skilled pet portrait artist. You can see more of Linda’s work at the annual Bunkhouse Gallery Show, the Austin Pastel Societies Annual Juried Member Exhibition, and by appointment in her home/studio overlooking Lake Travis in Lakeway. Her website wellsfineart.com gives examples of her works and more information about the artist. Please stop by the Lake Travis Community Library during the month of July to see her work exhibited in the meeting room. An artist’s reception will be held on Sunday, July 12 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

 

Gabby Johnson

 

The Lake Travis Community Library will host an exhibit by photographer Gabby Johnson this June. Gabby is originally from Southern California, and while she misses being close to the ocean, she loves her life in Lakeway. Gabby has lived in the Texas Hill Country since 2001. When she’s not taking pictures, she can be found working as the Concierge at Brookdale (formerly called The Summit Lakeway). Gabby truly enjoys the community connection working at Brookdale, saying, “They are like a huge extension of my family and I particularly enjoy taking photos of the Brookdale events.”

Photography has been Gabby’s passion since childhood and she finds true inspiration in the natural beauty of Austin and Lakeway. “It’s a rare day when I haven't taken a picture of something or someone. Photography fills me with so much joy and wonder,” said Gabby. “Nature is definitely my favorite subject, but I have also enjoyed taking pictures of animals and portraits of people too.”

 While Gabby is still an amateur level photographer, she is growing and developing her skill. Recently, she has even placed in a few local art contests.  Her photos "Quite Time" tied for 2nd place and "Glory" tied for 3rd place in the Lakeway Arts Committee's 11th Annual Photo Festival in 2012. In 2013, another image was selected for the Lakeway Golden Anniversary calendar. Her image was featured in September that year. Gabby’s pictures have twice been on display at Café Lago and been included in a monthly art show of local artists at Craigo's in Lakeway.

Gabby encourages everyone to stop by and enjoy "The Beauty of Nature" – her photography show – at the Lake Travis Community Library during the month of June. Her images will be on display and for sale with a percentage of the proceeds to be donated to the library.

 An artist’s reception will be held on Saturday, June 13th from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. All are invited to attend.
