Last spring, the DEA decided not to conduct the event, but popular
demand has brought it back. This event will provide a venue for Lakeway
area citizens to properly dispose of unwanted and unused controlled,
uncontrolled and over the counter medications.
Lakeway Police Chief Todd Radford encouraged the community to
“We are happy to see the return of this initiative that allows people to
dispose of medications properly,” Radford said. “It is critical in
helping to keep drugs out of the trash or sewer system and even more
important to keep drugs out of the hands of people who may abuse them.”

FLINT ROCK ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
ENTER CONSTRUCTION PHASE
The sharp edges of Flint Rock Road will be smoothed as construction on
road improvements is set to begin by the end of this year.
Travis County opened construction bids in late July for the section of
Flint Rock Road from Serene Hills Drive to near RM 620 and Lakeway
Regional Medical Center.
The roadway upgrade project is a joint project between the City of
Lakeway and Travis County to improve the general safety, dampen dips and
curves while widening the travel lanes and adding paved shoulders to the
heavily traveled road.
“We are pleased that improvements are imminent on Flint Rock Road,”
Lakeway City Manager Steve Jones said. “Drivers can look forward to a
thoroughfare that is better able to handle the increasing traffic counts
in the western half of our city.”...read

THE DAY (When I Fall to Pieces)
by Sue Wright
One of the most difficult
concepts in teaching Freshmen Composition is the use of such terms as
logical fallacy (your argument makes no sense) irony, satire, parody,
paradox, inductive and deductive reasoning. And that’s what I try to do
semester after semester. Many of you will understand that because most
of our national news is presented in exactly the same manner. Well, I
won’t have that teaching worry again—all I will have to do is recite the
events of the third week of July in the year of our Lord 2015, that
happened to the unsuspecting Wright family. It includes all of the
above. ...read on

Local author Mark
Pryor will visit the Lake Travis Community Library on Tuesday,
September 15th at 7 p.m. to discuss Hollow Man, his new
stand-alone novel. Publishers Weekly calls the novel,
"Devilishly clever and suspenseful."
Pryor’s first career was as a
newspaper reporter in Colchester, Essex. There, he covered the
police and crime beat for almost two years. He also wrote
stories on foreign assignments, including accounts from Northern
Ireland while with the British Army, and from Romania where he
covered the first-anniversary celebrations of that country's
revolution. Pryor is now an Assistant District Attorney with the
Travis County DA's office.
Pryor’s popular Hugo Marston crime
series is set mostly in Paris, but also London and Barcelona.
Protagonist Hugo is head of security at the US Embassy in Paris,
and a former FBI profiler.
"I write fiction because I can't help
myself, and I set my stories in Paris because I love the city
and its people. And, of course, its food -- snails are a direct
(if slow) route to my heart," said Pryor. "And if you've ever
sat in a Paris cafe, watching the world pass by with a carafe of
red wine in front of you, then I'm sure you can understand why
Hugo lives in Paris. And if you haven't done those things, well,
I encourage you to do so. Just be sure to invite me along."
Pryor new novel, Hollow Man, is
a psychological thriller and set right here in Austin. Main
character Dominic is a prosecutor, a musician and an Englishman
living in Texas. He's also a psychopath. His main goal is to
hide his condition and lead a seemingly normal life in hopes to
pay off his debts and become a full-time musician in
Austin's club scene. But on one lousy day his
carefully-controlled world starts to shatter: he's demoted at
work and accused of stealing a fellow musician's song.
Author Mark Pryor will visit the Lake
Travis Community Library on Tuesday, September 15th at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.

Pamela McGovney will exhibit in the
meeting room at the Lake Travis Community
Library during the month of September. While McGovney is new to
the Lake Travis community, she has lived in the Austin area
since 1992. Originally from the Beaumont/Port Arthur area, she
graduated from the art and theater programs at Lamar
McGovney is a very talented and
experienced watercolor artist who has dedicated herself to the
medium since 1988. McGovney selects a variety of subject matters
to explore including landscapes, portraits, and symbolic
paintings. McGovney loves to paint on location or "plein arte."
"I get to meet some interesting
people while painting," she said. "Even if they don’t speak
English, they try to tell me something about what I’m painting
or make a cordial effort to practice their English."
McGovney is excited about the
chosen theme for the upcoming September show entitled,
Memories of My Travels. These works will be paintings from
her travels in the United States, Canada, and Mexico; as well as
Europe and Great Britain.
"I try to take my viewers on an
emotional journey from the world they’re standing in to the
world I’ve experienced," said McGovney. "I want them to feel the
tender and complex connection I have with the locations."
The show Memories of My Travels
will run from August 30 through September 29. McGovney will
offer a watercolor demonstration on Yupo, a plastic paper, on
Wednesday, September 9 at 2:00 p.m. There will be an artist’s
reception on Saturday, September 12 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. And
McGovney will present a children’s interactive art demonstration
in conjunction with Preschool Story Time on Monday, September 21
at 10:30 a.m. The public is invited and welcome to attend all of
the events. For more information about the artist, visit
pamelamcgovney.com. Or, contact the library at
(512) 263-2885 or laketravislibrary.org.
This August, the Lake Travis Community Library
will welcome local artist, Derrick Dixon, to the meeting room
exhibit space. Derrick was born in Corpus Christi, but spent a
part of his childhood living in Venezuela. Derrick is also a
graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
Derrick and his family are long-time Lakeway
residents and very active library patrons! Derrick’s wife,
Jessica, is a regular volunteer in the children’s room as well
as the Little Yoga instructor. Derrick’s son, Graham, is a teen
volunteer and youngest child, Emma, is a member of the
mother/daughter book club with Jessica.
Although Derrick is not formally trained in the
arts, he has enjoyed a lifetime of music and art appreciation.
His interest in form and design is what inspired his creative
expression. His first paintings were simply meant to decorate
his own home, but even after the walls were covered, the
paintings kept coming. Derrick’s artwork is a visual delight.
His use of bold color and simple figures seem to celebrate the
innocence and enchantingly unaffected nature of childhood.
When he’s not painting, Derrick is a firefighter
for the City of Austin.
All are invited to stop by the library to view
the exhibit in August.
