WISD sends cease and desist letters

John Robert Garrison was arrested and charged with the Christmas Day robbery of a convenience store in Dripping Springs.

Suspect in Christmas Day robbery arrested BY ANITA MILLER A suspect has been arrested in the Christmas Day robbery of the Corner Store in Dripping Springs. John Robert Garrison, 39, of Wimberley was arrested without GARRISON incident Jan. 7 at a hotel in North Austin by the Austin Police Department Robbery Unit and agents from the Lonestar Fugitive Task Force. Garrison is accused of entering the store located at Sawyer Ranch Road and U.S. 290 at approximately 2:05 a.m., displaying a handgun and demanding money. Online records show he had been released from Hays County Jail Dec. 17 after his arrest by the Kyle Police Department for driving with an invalid license and prior convictions. In a press release, Deputy Mark Andrews of the Hays County Sheriff’s Office said Garrison had multiple outstanding warrants, including two for aggravated robbery, with the Austin Police Department and a warrant for a parole violation from the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole. Garrison is currently in Travis County Jail.

Wimberley Independent school district is threatening legal action against a woman who used the Wimberley Texan logo with a rainbow in the backdrop. Community outrage sparked over the logo, after grievances were filed against WISD school board member Lori Olsen for wearing an altered WISD logo with a pride flag in the backdrop. Since those grievances were filed, WISD has obtained copyright to both the Wimberley Texan logo and the new WISD logo to “ensure fairness and consistency,” according to an

email notice from WISD Superintendent Dwain York. The email notice was sent to Wimberley resident Cynthia Millonzi this week. Millonzi said she changed her profile picture on Facebook for seven days to the rainbow backdrop version during

Wimberley’s first pride parade in September. The image remains in her past profile pictures album on Facebook, but she has not used the logo since then. “When the week was over, the picture came down and I haven’t used it since, so to get the letter after the fact is a little

disturbing,” Millonzi said. “They [WISD] did not have the rights to the logo when we used it and not that we would check. I mean if someone gifted me a T-shirt, I’m not going to check the copyright on every shirt.” WISD Superintendent Dwain York said the district will enforce its rights to limit use of the marks under federal and state law. “Wimberley ISD has several marks which it allows local sponsors of its educational and extra-curricular activity programs to use. These sponsors pay significant fees each year to Wimberley ISD. Recent-

CEASE & DESIST, 6

Gravestone from lost settlement found in Hays County creekbed BY ANITA MILLER At first, just the corner was visible in a field of old flood debris along an intermittent creek near The Plant at Kyle, on west FM 150. Martha Kinscherff and her husband Jamie, stewards and neighbors of the popular wedding venue, walked the area often, but it hadn’t caught their eye until one day just over a year ago. “We lifted it up to see what it was and discovered it was a gravestone,” she recalled. What she still didn’t know was the story that would unfold about the person whose resting place it had marked. That story has since been filled, though many questions – including how it got to Central Texas – remain unanswered.

Road closure near Founders Park Portions of Rob Shelton to close temporarily STAFF REPORT Rob Shelton Blvd. will be closed to through traffic to and from Founders Park Road, which began after Christmas. The temporary closure is due to construction of a new driveway to Founders Park Pool and the Pound House. Traffic control and detours signs were put in place with closures and paving happening soon after. This first phase of construction is expected to take about a month to complete. Two-way traffic control will occur during the scheduled period of construction. Once this first phase is completed, Rob Shelton Blvd. will reopen, and the second phase of construction will begin, where portions of Founders Park Road will be closed to enable the construction to finish. There will continue to be access to the Pound House and Founders Park during both phases of construction. The city will provide updates throughout the construction. Please exercise caution when driving through the area.

Buck Meek (left) and Dylan Meek (right) of Wimberley were nominated for a Grammy for their song “Invincible,” that was performed by rapper Aminé and was on the soundtrack for the movie “Into the Spider-Verse.”

Wimberley brothers nominated for Grammys BY CAMELIA JUAREZ

Dylan Meek at age 14 would dedicate every spare minute to practicing the piano, every minute until his mom begged him to go play outside. His brother Buck would spend his weekends playing guitar in the background of local restaurants, not for sport, but for the audience. As they reflect on those sparkling moments, they recognize that their obsession and passion for music was nurtured by the Wimberley community. Now, both Texas brothers are shining bright with Grammy nominations. Dylan Meek co-wrote the song “Invincible” with rapper Aminé, which was featured on the movie “Into the Spider-Verse.” Buck’s band, “Big Thief” new album “U.F.O.F.” is nominated for Best Alternative Album alongside other nominees like Bon Iver and Thom Yorke. They have played on national television, for sold out venues with thousands of people, but still believe Wimberley is the best place to perform. Wimberley’s community has a history of supporting big names like Sarah Jarosz, who has won two Grammy awards. While working as a dishwasher at Monteruques restaurant, Buck got his first mentor at age 14. The bartender Brandon Jiff noticed Buck with the guitar and taught him to play blues. Eventually, Jiff gave him his first gig at the Woodcreek Tavern. At Katherine Anne Porter School, Buck met Jengo Porter who invited him to Blue Grass nights at Charlie’s where he met Mike Bond, Mike Fowler and Slim Richey. “They just took me in and gave me my first performances. They would just let me play rhythm in the background or a solo too here and there. They really just threw me into the fire, but they treated me like a peer, which at that time was so impactful. Music was such a social thing, it was a celebratory, almost ceremonial thing for them. It was inspiring to be brought into that fold,” Buck Meek said.

“It was like a karate kid situation where he never charged me for lessons, but I had to do the work. He gave me a lesson, showed me something that I needed to get down the next time I showed up. If I didn't have it down, he wouldn't teach me. He was like don't come back to me until you have mastered that thing” –Dylan Meek, Grammy-nominated musician

His brother Dylan went from piano student to piano prodigy after being mentored by jazz piano legend Jimmy Neeley, who played with Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker and knew Louis Armstrong. Neeley took Dylan, at age 14, under his wing and completely changed the game in Dylan’s growth as a musician. “It was like a karate kid situation where he never charged me for lessons, but I had to do the work. He gave me a lesson, showed me something that I needed to get down the next time I showed up. If I didn't have it down, he wouldn't teach me. He was like don't come back to me until you have mastered that thing,” Dylan Meek said. Dylan would practice 8 to 14 hours a day, depending if he was in school or not. If Dylan wasn't practicing, he was thinking about his next chance to practice. “I actually found this piece of paper from when I was 14, that had every hour and minute of the day that I had time to practice. I got home at 3 p.m. from school then I ate for 15 minutes and then I would practice until dinner at 6:30 p.m., for 45 minute. It was almost like a handwritten spreadsheet of every hour of the day that I had time to practice,” he said. After graduating from Katherine Anne Porter School, they both moved to New York. In New York Dylan befriended Ray Angry, a keyboardist with The Roots, who eventually linked him up with producer Om’Mas Keith. The day Dylan moved to Los Angeles, he got a

call out of the blue from Keith asking if Dylan was available to work in the studio with rapper Aminé. Dylan agreed and they made four songs within a few hours. Those recordings remained dormant for years, which is normal in the music industry. Out of the blue, Dylan got a call saying the song would be used in the movie “Into the Spider-Verse.” His childhood fantasies were finally taking shape. “It feels really surreal, especially at the end when I see my name's on the credits. I used to go to the Starplex or the Corral Allen movie theater and I remember thinking ‘I would like to be a part of music and movies. I would like to have the song on the big screen,’” Dylan Meek said. While Dylan was traveling the world, Buck was touring out of a busted 1987 van with Adrianne, singer for Big Thief. The pair met in New York and would play anywhere from Brooklyn stoops, subway stations and at bars. Over the years, they expanded to finally establish Big Thief. The Grammy nominated album “U.F.O.F” was created much slower and patiently than their three other albums, Buck said. For “Jenni,” Meek created distortion by striking a guitar that he had hung on a rope from the ceiling of a barn and had surrounded with amplifiers. “For this record, we wanted to record the sound as transparently as possible and as delicately as possible. We wanted to really reveal the breadth and depth of the instru-

Court OKs county jail contract BY ANITA MILLER After an extended period of testy discussion, the Hays County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted 4-1 to adopt a new contract with Securus Inc. for inmate phone calls and video visitation. County Judge Ruben Becerra was the sole dissenting vote. The proposal, which was sponsored by Pct. 4 Commissioner Walt Smith and Sheriff Gary Cutler, differed from an item on a December agenda sponsored by Pct. 3 Commissioner Lon Shell in duration and structure. While the previous proposal called for a five-year contract, the one approved was for three and a half years (the current contract was set to expire in June). Also, the contract utilized the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO). “NASPO ValuePoint provides the highest standard of excellence in public cooperative contracting,” background materials say. “By leveraging the leadership and expertise of all states and the purchasing power of their public entities, NASPO ValuePoint delivers the highest valued, reliable and competitively sourced contracts offering public entities outstanding prices.” The court also approved a second, related item authorizing the county judge “to execute a Master Services Agreement” with Securus “related to tablet services and application in the local jail.” Jail Administrator Lt. Julie Villalpando gave a short presentation in which she told the court the new contract would lessen the cost of a 15-minute (the longest allowed) phone call from $10.41 to $.80. Under the current contract with Securus, video visitation – popular with the families of inmates who are not from the local area – is $5.95 for 20 minutes. As required by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards, two free, in-person visits are allowed each inmate each week. “With this contract we’re adding video units and phones needed for the jail expansion,” Villalpando said. “I’m excited about adding other features like a video relay system for hearing impaired inmates to communicate with their family.”

“With this contract we’re adding video units and phones needed for the jail expansion needed for the jail expansion. I’m excited about adding other features like a video rely system for hearing impaired inmates to communicate with their family.” –Lt. Julie Villalpando, Jail Administrator

The system would also greatly increase the number of phones available to inmates within their kiosks. Tablets, which will come later, would allow inmates to consult legal documents (like in the jail’s law library) as well as eduational, religious and other materials. “Securus is the undisputed leader in this industry,” Villalpando said, and will train jail employees in how to use all the new technology. She also spoke to the urgency of the vote, saying the phones and other hardware need to be installed before inmates are moved into the newly-renovated areas of the jail. Replacing Securus equipment and infrastructure with that of another vendor, she said, could cost taxpayers $30,000. “Equipment, networks, infrastructure would all need to be pulled out and replaced. That could delay the project. Not approving a contract today would also mean phone rates would stay the same.” Villalpando and Sheriff Gary Cutler both stressed that the sheriff’s office has nothing to do with the financial workings of the system. Securus collects the money and sends a percentage to the county’s general fund through the office of County Auditor Marisol Villarreal-Alonzo. When called on to speak by Becerra, Villarreal-Alonzo said that although she has not performed a detailed

Secretary of State okays Hays County’s polling program for future elections SUBMITTED REPORT

The Texas Secretary of State’s Office has deemed Hays County’s Countywide Polling Program “successful,” giving the county permission to continue using the program. The Hays County Elections Office had requested “successful” status based on the results of its first election (Nov. 5, 2019) using the program. Following strict guidelines, the program allows the county to use Vote Centers located in areas most commonly traveled by voters and allows voting at any of those centers on Election Day. “Countywide polling was a long time coming to our voters,” Elections Administrator Jennifer Anderson said. “With the support of the commis-

According to the Texas Election Code, counties participating in the countywide polling place program must have at least one countywide polling place in each Commissioners Court precinct. Additionally, the number of countywide polling places within a Commissioners Court precinct may not exceed more than twice the number of countywide polling places located in any other Commissioners Court precinct.

Additionally, the number of countywide polling places within a commissioners court precinct may not exceed more than twice the number of countywide

polling places located in any other commissioners court precinct. Although the statute allows for a decrease in polling locations of 65 percent in the first election and no less than 50 percent in subsequent elections, Hays County did not decrease polling locations from the 2017 election and does not plan to decrease any for the upcoming 2020 elections.

McKinney and Giovanni Roque spurred a 9-4 Lockhart run which cut the Tiger lead to 39-32. Following a free throw from Tiger Luke Lawyer, Bailey exploded for nine points in roughly 80 seconds highlighted by a four-point play.

They would say they believed in me and I'm going far and they would do the same with my brother,” Dylan said. “Since I've gone to like New York and I lived in

L.A. in different places and travel the world like my other peers that way and travel the world a lot of them come from some kind of community for them heavily so I think it's a very valuable asset.” Both brothers have upcoming personal projects, so stay tuned. The 2020 Grammy Awards will be presented Jan. 26.

two locations: the Wimberley Community Center at 14068 Ranch Road 12, and the Wimberley ISD Building at 951n FM 2325. Anderson said the Cypress Springs Church has declined to host early voting but will be an active polling place in November. Dripping Springs and Driftwood voters can vote early at the Hays County Pct. 4 office at 195 Roger Hanks Parkway. Voters can also use Ledgestone Senior Living, 13152 Four Star Boulevard, Austin.

Concerning Pct. 4, Commissioner Walt Smith said he hopes the Citizen Advisory Council “will look at additional locations in my precinct for the November election.” He said using the Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace office hampers its operation and delays justice. “It’s the most used polling place in Dripping Springs; the problem is if you’re looking for justice you’re going to have to wait. It’s a concern, so I wanted to bring it up.”

There are also several locations in San Marcos including the Hays County Justice Center on South Stagecoach Road. Smith noted that primary polling locations have generally been agreed on by both Democrats and Republicans. “We’re fortunate in our county, the parties actually work together pretty well. I commend the Democratic and Republican Party chairs for bringing us a list of locations acceptable to

ly, to protect the use of the marks we retained a local law firm with expertise in this area to register the marks with U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and are

waiting for approval which we believe we will receive soon,” York said in an email statement. Almost two months after the Olson posted a selfie

with the altered logo, WISD filed applied to trademark the Wimberley Texan logo on Nov. 12, 2019, according to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

It is unclear how the district is locating altered logos online. Several Facebook users with altered logos have not been given cease and desist letters.

turned to Bath in England, leaving Margaret with her married sister Sarah Burbank. By the time Margaret died at age 37, the family was united once again in South Texas.” Margaret Clement died after the first major hurricane hit Indianola but three years before the second one. Kinscherff said it’s possible her friend Eudora brought the stone with her when her family abandoned Indianola for good. “When they left they would take everything,” she said of families in that area at the time. “They

would even take houses apart. I suspect they brought the gravestone with them.” Loflin said another wrinkle tying the Texas coast with the Kyle area involves the Kuykendall family. “They actually moved from the Blessing/Palacios area up to Hays County,” after the family patriarch had worked cattle with legendary Abel Head “Shanghai” Pierce and decided to buy his own ranch. “We’re looking to see if there’s a connection between Clement and the Kuykendalls,”

Loflin said. “We’re trying to figure out why the stone ended up all the

Jail Contract

Continued from pg. 2 audit, the books show that the Securus sent in excess of $183,000 to the general fund. “Funds are always deposited into that one item,” she said. “We have been given the reporting info we need from Securus. Every fiscal year we pull those reports.” Smith, who said he sponsored the agenda item because he asked to, said he was impressed by “the sheer number of our inmates” that use the service. “I view this as a service to our inmates.” Becerra had complained that since the item was not added to the agenda until Friday, he had inadequate time to review the contract. “I’m simply trying to be a good fiscal steward,” he said. “I’m trying for the best deal we can get and that within that deal, we’re not gouging the inmates.” Becerra and Pct. 1 Commissioner Debbie Gonzales Ingalbe questioned whether the contract could be for a shorter period of time, and Becerra also asked if anything in it precluded

the county from trying to find a company with a better deal, or even working up a system in-house. Villalpando said the length of the contract was set by NASPO. In response to his other question, County Attorney Mark Kennedy said, “We do not have the software engineering capacity or hardware capacity to develop this product, so the answer is no.” “Personally, I think this is a win for Hays County and a win for families,” Villalpando said. She said the jail is currently averaging about 650 in-person visits a month and about 2,400 video visitations. Gonzales Ingalsbe, who appeared to have reservations about the contract, said she could support it because of the savings for inmate families – a decision she came to after a call from her aunt. “She was very concerned about her son, her son is in jail. It made me feel really bad. She was saying, ‘my son is in there and it’s costing me a lot to talk to him.’ I know personally that it does affect families.”
