Experts say ‘Taco Bell’ oak is cleared to move

— Sports starts on p. 12

by Bobbie Jean Sawyer OAK HILL - The 130 year-old heritage oak tree at the intersection of William Cannon and 290, known among Oak Hill residents as the “Taco Bell Tree” is able to be transplanted, according to a feasibility study conducted by a team of certified experts, including the city arborist. The 32-inch diameter tree stands in the way of TxDOT’s renovations at the intersection, where a Taco Bell used to be located. TxDOT has given the community until Dec. 31 to raise the funds necessary to transplant the tree. Michael Fossum, executive director

of the Austin Heritage Tree Foundation, said residents have raised $4,700 so far. After the cost of the feasibility study, $3,000 is left in the transplanting fund to go toward the total $41,000 goal. (The cost of transplanting the tree went up from the original See ‘TACO BELL’ on page 26

Oak Hill Park & Ride will move to ACC lot by Ann Fowler OAK HILL - After months of rider speculation, Capital Metro announced Tuesday that the Park & Ride facility at William Cannon and U.S. Highway 290 West would be moved temporarily to the ACC Pinnacle campus during construction of the continuous flow intersection. The change is effective as of Monday, December 9, and will likely last until the summer. The current location, owned by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) but contracted to Capital Metro, has seen a steady decrease of parking spaces as more room has been taken for construction equipment.

SH45 SW Open House by Bobbie Jean Sawyer The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority will host an open house on SH-45 Southwest—the proposed 3.6-mile stretch of roadway that, if built, would connect MoPac and FM 1626—on Dec. 10, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bowie High School. Mobility Authority staff will be available to answer questions, present the purpose and need of the project and seek public input on alt e r n at i v e s to improve mobility i n s out h west Travis County and northern Hays County. The open house will Gerald Daugherty be a comeand-go format with no formal presentation. A virtual open house will be held Dec. 11 through Dec. 20 at Public meetings are just the next chapter in SH-45 SW’s long saga. The project has seen several stops and starts since it was first introduced in the mid-1980s. Today, SH-45 SW is still a wedge issue. Many residents along Slaughter and Brodie Lanes say the lack of Mopac access in the southwest region of the county has caused congested traffic in their neighborhoods, while environmentalists, such as members of the Save Our Springs Alliance (S.O.S.A.), oppose building a new road over the environmentally-sensitive aquifer region. One steadfast supporter of building SH-45 SW is Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty. Daugherty said completing the SH-45 loop is a necessity for Oak Hill residents in neighborhoods between FM 1626 and Slaughter Lane, who can barely utilize their local streets due to gridlocked traffic at certain times of the day. “We’re always a little challenged because it’s been a very sensitive area, environmentally speaking,” Daugherty said. “It’s really needed, just from a roadway network standpoint.”

CTRMA will host at Bowie, Dec. 10 “The reason this road needs to be built: it was voted on 16 years ago by Travis County—by the entire Travis County population,” — Gerald Daugherty More than that, Daugherty said, the road should be built to honor the votes cast by Travis County over a decade ago. “The reason this road needs to be built: it was voted on 16 years ago by Travis County—by the entire Travis County population,” Daugherty said. “It’s pretty egregious to think

that people vote for something and not only do they vote for it, but they also witnessed Travis County take taxpayer money and buy the right of way for it.” In October, Travis County Commissioners voted unanimously to support the construction of SH-45 Continued on page 26

Up there amid the cornucopia of raccoon and rat droppings I found the ol’ tree, a few lights, and Yule stockings. I emerged stiff and sore from all the crawling and kneeling, Yet I was thankful this time I didn’t fall through the ceiling. We set up the faux fir, still tall but a bit thinning, Then we threw on the tinsel and bulbs and the trimming. The wife and I then noticed something odd and perplexing, Our usually gung-ho helpers were too busy texting. Our daughters, you see, are now teens oh so typical, Self-involvement in this species has reached levels almost mythical,

So I barked, “If you two jokers want a visit from Saint Nick, Ya better put down the phones and start decorating quick!” With some grousing and squawking we got the house squared away, We even found our old snoring Santa to put on display. Then the tree lights turned off, an infuriating quirk, ’Cause I had to find that one lousy bulb that wouldn’t work.

The Word from Oak Hill Mike Jasper The word from Oak Hill is... thanks. As in thanks for Thanksgiving, God’s gift to middle-aged men. Food, football and beer. Usually in reverse order. It gets better. My birthday was the day after Thanksgiving on Black Friday. Bet you didn’t know that. Bet you didn’t know I was black, either (only 1/32, but I’ll take it). To celebrate, I went out to eat at a new discovery in the Hill Country Galleria, a sushi restaurant called Tadashi. Nice. It’s not limited to sushi, there are hot items as well, but I don’t care. I want the fish. And I want it straight from the chef at the bar, none of this table/waiter stuff. Just give me the fish from the guy cutting it. Boy, did I get the fish. Tuna, yellow tail, fatty salmon—all my old favor-

The Word from Oak Hill Mike Jasper Since it’s the season for giving, I’m going to give my old buddy John Magic some publicity. His new venture, Magic’s Theatre & Museum, will have its soft opening this Saturday night, Dec. 7. Can’t see anything going wrong on that date. John will perform his first show at the new venue at 7 p.m., although doors will open at 6:30. Besides the magic show, people will be able to take a sneak peak at the museum as well. He plans to put on shows every Saturday night in December. You can find Magic’s Theatre & Museum at 13419 Fitzhugh Road in the same countrified neighborhood as the Stunt Ranch and Jester King Brewery. • • • More publicity. A surf band just put out a Christmas album. Didn’t see that coming, did you? It gets better. The title of the album is called, “The SurfChords: Sea Sun Greetings.” It includes the hit single, “Sand Duh’s Coming.” Just kidding, I made that up. See? I could co-write for the band. If it really is a band. Seems like it’s a one-man thing, but that’s okay. What do I care if he plays drums, bass, guitar and every other instrument.

Unlike the US Congress, however, the Future Medical Leaders plan to accomplish a few things. From February 14-16 next year, Brian and his heady contemporaries will hear Nobel laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about cutting-edge research. He’ll also hear from Ivy League school deans about what to expect in medical school, as well as stories from patients who are alive thanks to medical miracles. He’ll also meet and mingle with his teen contemporaries

who are planning medical careers. Brian Jordan was nominated by Dr. Connie Mariano—the Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists— to represent Bowie High School based on his academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. “This is a crucial time in America when we need more doctors and medical scientists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard Rossi, Executive Director, National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Brian Jordan are our future and he deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give him.” Congrats to you, Brian Jordan. I’m pretty sure I know how you feel. I was awarded a similar honor during my senior year of high school. Sort of. I was chosen to spend three days in a cage with four rhesus monkeys watching reruns of I Love Lucy where we were fed meat treats and flagons of Mountain Dew by a bald man wearing horned rim glasses and a white lab coat.

APD holiday tips to avoid burglaries This holiday season, auto burglars will be dashing through parking lots and streets doing their own window shopping. the Austin Police Department wants to ensure that your gifts do not end up in the wrong hands. Auto burglars shop the easy way by stealing your gifts, purse, wallet, packages or other valuables that you leave in plain sight inside your vehicle. In Texas, a vehicle is burglarized every 2.5 minutes. Auto burglaries escalate during this time of year when people increase shopping and don’t take the necessary precautions

to protect personal items left in a vehicle. Don’t give a thief an opportunity to commit these crimes. APD wants to remind you to protect your vehicle during this busy holiday season by taking precautions that will make your vehicle less of a target: • Lock Your Car and take your keys – Don’t make it easier for the thief to enter your vehicle • Park in well-lit areas – over half of all vehicles theft occur at night • Don’t leave valuables in plain view – don’t make your car a more

desirable target and attract thieves by leaving valuables in plain sight • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings • Avoid carrying a large amount of cash or credit cards The APD Auto Theft Interdiction Project programs are funded through the Texas Auto Burglary and Theft Prevention Authority part of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle to reduce auto and burglary theft in the State of Texas.

Wildflower Center all aglow for holiday event by Donna Marie Miller Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, at 4801 La Crosse Avenue, will radiate a golden holiday glow for three hours each evening of Dec. 14 and 15, beginning at dusk, as flickering flames from tiny votive or electric candles light 3,000 handmade lanterns. “Luminations,” a free family-friendly annual event, benefits Capital Area Food Bank on both nights from 6 to 9 p.m. with a donation of two cans of food per person. Early visitors may park in the center’s parking lot, or along La Crosse Avenue; turnover frequently occurs, as guests come and go during the three-hour open house on both nights. Staff also will be available to offer parking assistance. The lanterns—made to look like paper sacks with the tops folded down—are cast from plastic, and each measures about 10 inches tall and 6 inches wide. The glowing lanterns, called luminarias in Spanish, represent a 300-year-old holiday tradition throughout the Southwest each December. The luminarias will light at ground level the walking pathways for visitors to the Wildflower Center.

Some of the Wildflower Center’s luminarias utilize tiny electric bulbs that feel cool to the touch. However, a warning to parents of small children, other lanterns on the grounds feature glass votive or fire-lit candles. The burning candles will be located at the front entrance of the Wildflower Center closest to La Crosse Avenue, and will extend all the way into the courtyard. The electric luminarias will be situated throughout the themed gardens to include: plants that attract butterflies, plants that prove good at repelling deer, and the cacti garden. Parents with small children and strollers are welcome; pets are prohibited. “There’s definitely a safer element with the electric candles,” said Amanda Butterfield, events coordinator at the Wildflower Center. “Parents need to keep an eye on their kids and make sure they aren’t putting their hands inside of the fire lit candles, but other than that they should be fine if everyone stays on the paths.” Beside the center’s cistern, a laser-lit tree and bushes will emit more than 5,000 points of light, provided by the Christmas Light Pros. The lighted

The lasers reflect outward and illuminate solid tiny green and white points of light against any surface, including skin. Because the lights do not disperse, visitors enjoy taking photos of their loved ones seemingly glowing green with an eerie and surreal star-like quality. “It’s really beautiful. The kids and adults alike are filled with awe when they walk by. I think they are mystified about what it is and how it got there,” Butterfield said. Butterfield added that visitors

walking the paths around the laser-lit trees should avoid walking on the wild plants that grow nearby in the environmentally sensitive habitat. The gardens feature blue, violet, scarlet and gold blooms this time of year from Autumn Sage, Sky Blue Aster, Resinbush, Scarlet Sage, Sunflower Goldeneye, and American Beautyberry. “The American Beautyberry is gorgeous. It’s like this beautiful purple lilac color. The blooms are these clumps of berries that grow together to form a 2- to 3-inch array

of color,” Butterfield said. Together the lanterns, laser-lit trees and blooming plants provide a spectacular, one-of-a-kind visual bonanza of sights, accompanied by the sounds of live musical performances by local musicians and choirs. One of the musical performances will be provided by Southwest Austin’s own Bailey Middle School students, who will perform at 7 p.m. Dec. 14.

Bailey’s steel drum band has performed at the Wildflower Center before, but this will be the first time for one of its newest director’s, Alex Ortega, an assistant band director and steel drum director who teaches percussion and trumpet, who graduated last May from Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in music education. This semester has been his first job teaching in Texas public schools. “These are steel drums that are based out of the Caribbean Islands, so it gets you in the mood of being on the beach and relaxing in the sun. They are happy tunes that you would typically hear in the Caribbean,� Ortega said. The second group of the advanced steel drum band is composed of 17 students who will perform nine songs including: “La Bamba,� “Sarah,� “Jump in the Line,� “Pyxis,� “Pan Christmas medley,� “Oye Como Va,� “Tre Pak� from the “Nutcracker Suite,� “Under the Sea,� from the movie “The Little Mermaid� and “Slaughter Lane,� an original song written by Austin composer Emily Lemmerman for James Bowie High School. “It will be fun. The kids are really excited about it. We have some Christmas songs and some other songs that show off the songs of the Caribbean,� Ortega said. Musical performances will be provided outdoors in one of two locations, either the courtyard or in the themed gardens: Saturday, December 14 performances scheduled: 6 p.m.: Austin Mandolin Orchestra performs in the Courtyard 6:30 p.m.: Chalumeau Clarinet Quartet performs in the Themed Gardens 7 p.m.: Bailey Middle School Steel Drum Band performs in the Courtyard

Wildflower staff and volunteers will provide story time readings. In addition to the beautiful holiday lighting and musical performances, children will receive a visit from “Frosty the Snowman.â€? They may also participate in arts and crafts activities inside the Wildflower Visitors’ Gallery. A snowflake-making craft has proved to be one of the most popular each year. Lone Star Kettle Corn will also sell freshly popped goods at the entrance to the Courtyard. The Wildflower CafĂŠ will be open for business and will sell hot drinks like apple cider and cocoa, as well as tasty baked goods. The McDermott Learning Center will display Christmas trees decorated with Texas and wildflower-themed ornaments by local businesses. Both Saturday and Sunday evenings, decorated trees in the MLC will be provided by Mockingbird Domestics, Ana Perkins of Grown Up Shoes, and Breed & Co. The Wildflower Gift Store will also offer unique items for sale. The store offers a lot of handmade and artisan gifts— everything from painted flower pots, to hand crafted clothing, to artisan jewelry and handmade

Guests may sample Texas Yaupon Tea, the only native one to North America, made from a type of holly bush. On both nights, local authors and illustrators will personally autograph copies of their works from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Wildflower Store. Saturday night, Alan C. Elliott and Stephanie Ford will sign their book, Willy the Texas Longhorn, a Santa Tale. The story features a Longhorn who helps Santa navigate a nasty Texas fog one Christmas night. On Sunday night illustrator Keith Graves will sign his book, Too Many Frogs, written by Sandy Asher. The story features a rabbit and a frog that also turn out to be a humorously odd couple of bookworms. The festive event impacts the local community by raising charitable donations for a non-profit food bank

that serves the entire state of Texas. “Last year we raised 9,000 pounds of food,� Butterfield said. “We’ve been doing this at least six years. It’s a great way to give back to the community and to help support our hungry central Texas neighbors.� The 9,000 pounds of food amounts to 7,500 meals, said Sara LeStrange, communications director for CAFB. Currently the website for the food bank states that the organization serves about 48,000 central Texans each week. However, that number only reflects a portion of the actual people served weekly over the past year, LeStrange said. “It is really hard to get a good measure about the number of people we serve. The National Hunger Study every four years details the number of people served by CAFB. We expect that number to be higher

when the study is released this next spring. We know that we have distributed over 29 million pounds of food over the last 12 months, and that is up 7 million over the year before.� CAFB is working hard to meet a growing need in Central Texas. Not only do events like Luminations raise food donations, but they raise overall awareness as well, she said. “Over 40 percent of the people we serve are children, and a majority of our clients are made up of families with at least one working adult, the elderly and the disabled. Something in Central Texas we don’t realize is that for a lot of us, hunger lives next door. Hunger is everywhere,� LeStrange said. For more information, please see how-to-help/donate-food.html

Four-time Tony award winner Memphis is coming to Austin Memphis is coming to Austin December 10-15 at Bass Concert Hall. Critically acclaimed MEMPHIS won four 2010 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score (David Bryan and Joe DiPietro); four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Music (David Bryan) and four Outer Critic Circle Awards including

Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Score (David Bryan & Joe DiPietro) and Outstanding Choreography (Sergio Trujillo).

singer. MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Tickets are available at, the Bass Concert Hall box office, all Texas Box Office Outlets, by phone at (512) 477-6060.

On Saturday, November 16th, at the Burger Center, a special event took place during the Bowie Boys Varsity basketball game against Crockett High School. The Bowie Varsity team joined with Tiger Cub Scout Pack 12, Den 11 (first graders at Clayton and Baldwin elementary schools.) to assist in a scouting project. According to Den Leader Michael Mann, this is the boys first year in scouting, and the goal of the event was to learn about teamwork and sportsmanship as part of their scouting requirement. The Tiger Cubs joined the team lineup on the

court to kick off the Saturday game. They sang the National Anthem led by Bowie Junior singer, Morgan Martel, left, in red, as the Bowie Air Force Junior ROTC Color Guard presented the flag. The JROTC program is led by Lt. Colonel (retired) Robert Downey and Master Sergeant (retired), David Loyd. The Tiger Cubs especially loved the “high fives” given by the players as they announced the starting lineup. One of the scout parents said, “It was exciting for the boys to be a part of that team spirit.” - submitted

Crockett girls win some lose some by Patrick Olson After sprinting out to a 4-0 start on the season, the Lady Cougars earned a pair of wins, and suffered three losses at a tournament in Floresville. “I think we grew as a team and got to see some opponents and some styles of play that we had not seen up to that point,” coach Jennifer Shuttlesworth said. “Overall, I think we got a lot of good things from the

tournament.” Forward Jordyn Holmes and point guard Darcy Lof continue to lead the brown and gold club offensively, with Korin Park-Overton providing defense with strong rebounding. Holmes paces the club in steals, assists and blocked shots. Lof ranks second in steals and assists. The Lady Cougars ventured north with the Crockett boys team to take

where she also played volleyball. After competing on the freshman volleyball team during her first year at Bowie, Lampkin opted to focus exclusively on basketball. Her older brother, DeAndre Perry, played football at Bowie and now attends the University of Houston. During the summer, Desiree improved her hoops skills playing against

DeAndre, and competing on the club team Austin Glory while traveling to tournaments in Dallas, Arkansas and Tennessee. English instructor Ms. Garrison is Desiree’s favorite teacher at Bowie. “She knows how to teach well,” the junior court general explained. “She is very helpful.” Lampkin’s fondest academic experience occurred when she received a 100 on a chemistry exam. Her mother Candi provides a positive influence. “She’s my support system and is always there for

on Lampasas on Tuesday, and will participate in the Navasota Tournament this weekend. Shuttlesworth’s crew hosts Rockdale on December 13th and entertains Blanco on December 20th. Following a home game versus Wimberley on New Year’s Eve, the team begins district competition on January 3rd versus Travis.

me,” Desiree noted. Lampkin’s older sister Audrey also played basketball at Bowie. Lampkin now brings vocal leadership to a team aiming to make the playoffs in 2014, after winning two games in the postseason last year. She also provides a calming influence for her teammates during intense battles on the court. The Lady Dawgs travel north to participate in the 34th annual Jack Frost Invitational Tournament this weekend in Georgetown. Bowie opens versus San Antonio Wagner at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

Student Athlete Spotlight Jeremy Mantia Continued from p. 12 Operating at the forward spot for the Austin High boys basketball team, Jeremy Mantia brings versatility to the Maroons. “He’s become a complete player,” coach Andy Dudney said. “He understands the sense of urgency and he’s able to handle it.” Mantia provides rebounding ability inside and offensive skills on the perimeter, as Austin High aims to return to the playoffs in 2014. A native of Austin, Mantia attended Travis Heights Elementary, before moving up to O’Henry Middle School, where he also played tennis and ran track. Each of his four years in high school, Mantia has played basketball and competed on the swim team in the 50-meter freestyle event. In the summer he plays hoops for the club team

Austin Wildcats, traveling to Dallas for tournaments. Swim coach and AP-US History instructor Drew Calver is Mantia’s favorite teacher at Austin High. Jeremy’s grandfather provides a consistent, positive influence for the 6’4” baller. “He keeps reminding me to do well in my classes,” Mantia noted. His favorite athletic moment occurred recently on a dunk in a win over Leander. “Do well in school, because it is the only way you’re going to get on the court. And practice, practice, practice,” Mantia replied when asked what advice he may have for future Austin High pupils hoping to compete at the varsity level. The Maroons visit Cedar Park Friday night. “We need to do what we do best,” Mantia added. “Run our plays, play defense and our offense will come to us.”

Park & Ride will move to ACC Pinnacle lot G Continued from p. 1 specialist for Capital Metro, told the Gazette, “Capital Metro has been working with TxDOT thus far to co-exist at the Oak Hill Park & Ride during construction. However, the project has become more complex and as a result, Capital Metro will temporarily close the Oak Hill Park & Ride effective Monday, December 9, and relocate to the ACC Pinnacle Campus—Lot G (weekdays only) until construction ends.” The move comes none too soon. Rider Xiaoyan Dai reported that she arrived for the 7:20 a.m. bus, to find only two parking spots left for the riders of the 7:40, 8:00 and 8:20 a.m. buses. How riders feel about the move depends on which side of the ‘Y’ they live. Several riders said the move to ACC will save them a trip through the congested ‘Y’ intersection. But Jane Osterhout is not one of them. She said, “ACC isn’t nearly as convenient for me. Now I’ll have to fight the traffic at the ‘Y’ at Oak Hill.” Schedule is another concern of riders. For a few weeks, the Oak Hill Flyer will maintain its schedule from the Park & Ride despite its move southwest of the ‘Y.’ That means each bus will arrive at least ten minutes later to its downtown destinations. Ayala said the schedule would be adjusted. She said, “There will be schedule changes during our Janu-

ary Service Change period, where we have adjusted the schedule to arrive earlier. Those changes will take effect January 26, 2014.” Roberto Gonzalez, of Capital Metro Planning, met with disembarking riders on Tuesday to hand out flyers about the move and answer questions. He said bus drivers would have an option of routes to the Park & Ride: • Mopac to U.S. 290 West • Mopac to William Cannon to U.S. 290 West • Mopac to Southwest Parkway to William Cannon to U.S. 290 West The two neighborhood (Scenic Brook, Westcreek) buses will remain the same in the mornings: pick up in the Scenic Brook area, stop at the Park & Ride, pick up at the Westcreek stop. But the afternoon route will change. Gonzalez said that after the move, Westcreek residents will disembark at Oakclaire Drive prior to the stop at the Park & Ride. Scenic Brook area residents will reach their neighborhood after stopping at the Park & Ride. Dai was one of several riders hoping that Capital Metro will find a new home for the Oak Hill Park & Ride. She said, “The [current] P&R is the worst. It is hard to get in and out. It is not safe. There are not enough parking spots. I wish they will never go back to the old one.”

Maroons off to a good start Continued from p. 12

and one free throw by Sterling kept the Maroons in control 24-19. Austin High led 26-22 at intermission. Graham Warner’s interior field goal for the Lions tied the game 29-29, before Jones’ strong drive inside for a basket and one free throw restored the lead for Austin. Sterling then had another steal and a layup. After Joseph Mahoney nailed a three-pointer at the top of the key for the visitors, Jeremy Mantia finished a Maroon fast break with a dunk, and the Austin High student section roared with approval. Jones collected an assist on a jump shot by Lado Dogale that gave the Maroons a 38-34 lead. Davis Franklin entered the game for Jones at the onset of the fourth quarter, and Mantia’s drive thru the lane gave the Maroons a 42-38 advantage. With the clock winding down, the Maroons spread the floor and Mantia found Dogale underneath for a bucket that put Austin High in front 48-41. Franklin’s free throw capped the scoring in the game, as the Maroons dribbled out the final seconds. “The Connally game was a grind-it-out game,” Dudney

Jeremy Mantia (#3) grabs a jump ball for his Austin High Maroons. added. “We used every time out available, and knew that we just had to stay the course and finish the game from the foul line.” Senior captains

Sterling and Jones contributed 14 and 13 points respectively. The Maroons visit Cedar Park on Friday with tip-off set for 7:30 p.m.

Bowie over Round Rock 53 to 40 by Patrick Olson

The Bulldogs established a 16-6 lead after the first quarter, and Bowie registered a 53-40 win over Round Rock Tuesday evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our execution was not very good tonight,â&#x20AC;? coach Celester Collier said candidly afterward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get way better.â&#x20AC;? Bowie will have three tournaments to improve before district play begins on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve at 6 p.m. versus Austin High at Burger Gym. Jake Walton had six points, while

both Eyob Yirgou and Powell Hinson drained three pointers for Bowie in the first period. With Liam Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly running the black and red offense at point guard, the Bulldogs created a 23-8 advantage. Collier then called a time out to encourage his team to hustle, not walk back down the court on defense. Hinson proceeded to add four free throws following aggressive drives to the hole where the 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;1â&#x20AC;? junior guard was fouled. Bowie led 32-17 at the break. Jake Moore hit a three-pointer

in the corner to put Bowie in front 38-23 in the third quarter. Yirgov displayed tenacity in the paint and Hudson Urbanus hit a trey to extend the advantage to 41-28. Hinson, who led all Bowie scorers with 16 points, connected on a field goal at the elbow putting the home team on top 45-30. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly fouled out for the second time this season with 1:21 remaining and Urbanus concluded the Bulldog scoring with a pair of free throws.

$30,000 estimate because the tree is buried and the added weight of the attached soil will increase the cost of removing the tree, Fossum said.) The money will be paired with a $57,000 grant from the city to pay for the removal of the tree. The grant will only be applied if the full amount is raised. Fossum said the tree is in good health, having been well preserved decades ago. “The tree must have gotten buried over 40 years ago when 290 was built,” Fossum said. “Fortunately, somebody protected the tree by adding rocks and sand to allow for drainage and the trunk didn’t rot.” The historic tree has a 75 percent chance of surviving the transplant, according to an Austin Heritage Tree Foundation press release. Fossum said while every transplant is different, there is a standard of care given to trees before and after a transplant. “Generally speaking, before you move the tree you will treat it with water and mulch and perhaps a root (stimulate) to get the tree to perk up as much as possible,” Fossum said. “Then you’re basically going to dig down around the tree and (depending on the process), you’ll find someway to support the root ball and take it out of the location where it is now.”

progress in a short time. “It sounds like this is against all odds, but we have come a long way under very difficult circumstances,” Fossum said. “TxDOT is also helping by giving the tree a chance to remain on site for a few more weeks. The Oak Hill and Austin communities care for this tree and want it preserved, so everyone is helping. Together, we can do this.” Ways to Donate · Send a check to the Austin Parks Foundation, 507 Calles Street, Ste. 116, Austin, TX 78702.

Fossum said this tree will most likely be put on a trailer with a large crane, then be transported across the street to a TxDOT-provided location, 500 feet northeast of where it currently stands. The tree would reside in TxDOT’s right-of-way and be unaffected by future construction. Fossum said the tree would also receive five years of aftercare, which will consist of applying mulch, monitoring soil moisture and checking for parasites. A certified arborist will visit the tree quarterly and irrigation will be installed so that the oak can by properly watered. “The roots of the tree will reestablish themselves and re-grow in order to support the canopy,” Fossum said. As stated in the 2008 Oak Hill Combined Neighborhood plan, the Taco Bell Tree holds a special place in Oak Hill’s history as part of Beckett’s Grove, a line of oak and pecan trees near the intersection of 290 and William Cannon, named for the Beckett family who owned the former ranch land in the 1870s. The location was frequently used as a campsite by travelers heading into Austin. The Austin Heritage Tree Foundation sent out a fundraising letter on Tuesday and will be reaching out to local businesses for donations. Fossum said while the $41,000 fund may seem daunting, Oak Hill residents have already made significant

SW. Daugherty said it’s important to have his fellow commissioners on board with the roadway. Now that the SH-45 SW project is starting over—yet again—a new environmental impact study must be completed to assess the effect the roadway would have on all matters of life in the region, considering environmental concerns, constraints and the needs of drivers and area residents. Daugherty said he believes, using today’s advanced equipment, the roadway can be built without impacting the aquifer. “I think it’s pretty ridiculous to

think that you can’t build a 3.6-mile road across a very sensitive piece of land and not use everything available today to protect the aquifer,” Daugherty said. “In my mind, it’s not about protecting the aquifer—it’s that people think that if you build the road, it encourages more growth.” It’s not only the controversial project that has Daugherty and S.O.S.A. at odds; the environmental organization filed a Public Information Act lawsuit against the commissioner. S.O.S.A. says Daugherty failed to provide requested information on SH-45 SW. In an S.O.S.A. press statement, the organization said the lawsuit is in

regards to an information request seeking correspondence between Daugherty and “other persons or entities” concerning SH-45 SW. Daugherty said he’s provided all the information the county attorney says may be made publicly available. “It’s not like it’s any big secret about me wanting to do 45 Southwest. It’s kind of like, which part of this do you think I’m being secretive about?,” Daugherty said. “I’ve told the attorneys there’s nothing too personal that I have as it relates to this road that you couldn’t have.” For more information on the SH-45 SW project, visit
