Drug Take Back

Day

 

Lakeway police bring back Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Lakeway Police Department invites the public to participate in the popular Prescription Drug Take-Back Day initiative from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Sept. 26 at Lakeway Justice Center, 104 Cross Creek.
This event will mark the seventh Take-Back Day for Lakeway Police Department, which is hosting the event in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
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 participate.
“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 on

Sue's "Lite Side"

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

August 2015

 

September 2015

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. Please contact the library at laketravislibrary.org and (512) 263-2885 for more information

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 University. 

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.
