APD Commander:

Citizens key to keeping crime rate low by Joanne Foote

AUSTIN - “Citizen involvement is key to what we do,” said Commander Todd Gage. “Anything we can do to help you live in safe communities is what we want to do, we are all partners.” It looks like the word is spreading. Every chair was full at the South Austin Quarterly Police Commander’s Forum, which was

held on Tuesday, July 23, at the Clinton Hunter police sub-station. “I’ve been stationed here since January. I started in this area 20 years ago and am glad to be back,” said Commander Todd Gage, who began the meeting with Citizen Recognition and Appreciation. Several citizens were acknowledged for things ranging from calling and

reporting an active house burglary, to helping track down the driver responsible for a hit and run accident. “The accident on June 18 involved off-duty Firefighter Colin Camp, who was riding his bicycle in the bike lane on Manchaca Road, just south of Slaughter Lane, and was run over by someone driving a truck in the bike lane. The driver fled, but

these five people followed him and stayed with the driver until officers arrived and could apprehend the driver. They didn’t blow off the situation,” said Gage. “Reginald Williams and other family members who witnessed the hit and run accident pursued the driver responsible and maintained contact with him until police arrived.” An area fire chief was on hand and added, “This was a tragic accident all the way around and unfortunately our firefighter is still in grave con-

dition, but the fact that the individual responsible for the accident was apprehended because of your actions. It is certainly appreciated by the family as well as the Austin Fire Department.” “There are a few things I want to discuss before we break into smaller groups. Right now the Austin City Council is going through the Budget Process for 2013-2014,” said Gage. “APD has submitted a budget proposal asking for an additional 92 See CITIZENS on page 11

City traffic project to help Brodie bottleneck by Bobbie Jean Sawyer AUSTIN - The city of Austin has authorized a contract for traffic improvements in Southwest Austin. The project, which includes the construction of a nearly mile-long, fourlane roadway, is designed to alleviate bottleneck traffic along Brodie Lane, Davis Lane and Deer Lane. The 0.8 mile roadway will include a raised center median, bike lanes and sidewalks on the eastbound and westbound sides. The divided

The family pursued the driver responsible and maintained contact with him until police arrived. Their efforts resulted in an arrest of the driver who hit the cyclist. They all received special acknowledgment from both police and firefighters. - Photo by Joanne Foote

The roadway will also provide a connection from Brodie Lane to Corran Ferry.

Oak Hill resident leads ‘Blazing Bows’ at the ‘Spoke’ by Donna Marie Miller About 30 elementary age boys and girls and a half dozen adults—all fiddlers— tucked their instruments under their chins to perform some good old time string classics of folk and country music July 15 at The Broken Spoke. Little girls, some as young as 5 years old, with braids pulled up on top of their heads and dressed in their best embroidered dresses or ruffle skirts and lacy tops, stood beside little boys wearing plaid shirts and Wrangler jeans. Most all wore cowboy boots. They donned Texas Resistol straw hats in white and red and a few wore western scarves tied around their necks Lonesome Dove style. Meanwhile, parents shot video from the side porches along either side of the bandstand or upon the dance floor, with their digital camcorders, cameras, and smart phones. Beneath the glow of neon signs advertising well-known beer labels, dozens of families came together inside Austin’s most famous honkytonk. Without drinking a drop of alcohol, adults clapped and raised some revelry for their children. Mothers with infants in their laps

and fathers with babies on top of their shoulders turned The Broken Spoke into a romper room of “G”-rated fun. Oak Hill resident Mary Hattersley and her Blazing Bows Suzuki-style music students performed within just a week from the day that she underwent cancer surgery. “Sweet Mary,” as folks call her, smiled, sang, danced and played fiddle like nobody’s business from a set list that read an awful lot like a music history lesson. “Fiddle Fest” provided the finale to a Blazing Bows two-week summer camp that has culminated at The Broken Spoke annually for nearly 20 years. However, for the first time in as long as some fans can remember, one of The Broken Spoke’s original owners, James White, did not attend the performance. Instead, White rested at home following surgery July 3. Doctors have placed a defibrillator inside the left side of White’s chest to regulate irregular heart rhythms. He also broke his foot recently walking on the Town Lake trail. White has worn an orthopedic “boot” or

election years (last in 2012). Commissioner precincts 2 and 4, and the county judge, are elected in gubernatorial election years (next in 2014). The legal qualifications to be a county commissioner or the county judge are fairly simple…You must be a U.S. citizen, have resided in Texas for 12 months, have lived in your commissioner precinct for six months (anywhere in the county for county judge), and be at least 18 years old. A county judge does not need to be a lawyer, but must be “well informed in law”. Of course we all know it takes a whole lot more than those minimum legal requirements to persuade the majority of the voters in an election (held every four years) to entrust a person with the office of commissioner or county judge. Since we recently experienced the situation of a vacancy on the Commissioners Court, let’s talk about what happens when a vacancy (for whatever reason) occurs in the office of any county elected office. The Commissioners Court fills a county judge vacancy, and also a vacancy in MOST OTHER elected county offices. The county judge fills a vacancy in a county commis

Nephewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leukemia struggle Swimming pools can spread inspires family to fundraise recreational water illnesses In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, the Corbett family will host an Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lemonade Stand on Tuesday, July 30 from 3-5 pm at the Circle C North mailboxes on Barstow Avenue.  The Corbettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were inspired to raise money for pediatric cancer after watching their hero, nephew & cousin, Jonas Vincent fight leukemia.  Jonas was diagnosed 4 years ago and last summer, after a long fight, the family was able to celebrate with a No More Chemo party.  Jonas is now in remission and a happy, healthy 10-year-old boy. Holding a lemonade stand to raise money for this cause was the perfect way to get the kids involved.   In addition to this event, Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lemonade Stand Foundation is preparing to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go the distanceâ&#x20AC;?

this September to raise the profile of National Childhood Cancer

Awareness Month. Launching the Million Mile Run, the Foundation will enlist the support of volunteers across the country to collectively walk or run 1 million miles throughout the month in an effort to raise awareness. For more

information go to their website at MillionMileRun.org.   Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alexâ&#x20AC;? Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of finding a cure, funding over 275 research projects nationally.

Summer and swimming go together. And with swimming comes the potential for recreational water illnesses (RWIs). The Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department wants to ensure that families stay healthy throughout the summer months and offers the following information and tips for healthy swimming. The germs that cause RWIs, such as cryptosporidiosis (also known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;cryptoâ&#x20AC;?), are spread when you swallow, breathe in the mists from, or have contact with contaminated water from pools, water parks, hot tubs, lakes, oceans, and any other type of water used for recreation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good news is that germs causing RWIs are killed by chlorine; however, chlorine doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work right away and some organisms can live in the pool for days,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Philip Huang, Medical Director for Austin/ Travis County Health and Human

officers. Last year, the city Council commissioned a report to look at our staffing and the report indicated that we are very low on the number of officers we need for a city this size. The PERF report (Police Executive Research Forum) indicated a need to add 257 officers by 2017. The request of 92 officers this year is our first phase of achieving that number. However, for some perspective, to meet the national average for a city our size, we would need to add 700 officers by 2017.” An excerpt taken from the summary of the report, explained the purpose, “The objectives of the study include: reviewing the current demand for sworn law enforcement, including calls for service, investigative workload, staffing for special events, and utilization of support staff; examining benchmarks for police staffing that are used in a sample of U.S. cities with populations from 500,000 to one million.” The full report can be found on the APD website. “About 45 of the new officers will be tasked to Special Events. Right now, you may lose your District Representative (DR) for a week or more for each of the special events held around Austin. It hurts the citizens because we have less officers able to patrol in neighborhoods,” explained Gage. “Right now the multitude of special events in Austin during the year put an added stress on the department. Events, such as Circuit of the Americas, Austin City Limits Festival, and South by Southwest, all require officers to be pulled from different areas of town to provide security,” Gage said. A citizen at the meeting asked about security funding at these events, “Why are taxpayers subsidizing security for these special events, which turn a profit for the organization who is putting them on? Shouldn’t those groups foot the bill on the needed added security?” “In all likelihood, some of those fees are probably being waived by the city council as an incentive for those events to come to town. If that is something you disagree with, then you should contact your city council member,” said Gage. If approved in the proposed budget, additional officers would be tasked to the traffic unit. “Traffic fatalities

Officer William Beck is one of the mentors for the program. - Photo by Joanne Foote are at an all-time high in Austin,” said Gage, adding, “Last year Austin had 82 traffic fatalities and we are on track to meet or exceed that number this year. Over the weekend, we had five traffic fatalities. By adding more officers on traffic duty, especially at night, we hope will help keep that number from going higher.” “Improving officer presence, uncommitted time and response time are three things that are very important for us and the community. Officer presence is the biggest deterrent to crime. In addition, what we refer to as ‘uncommitted time,’ which is the time an officer has to patrol uninterrupted, amounts to only 15% of his time in a day. The other 85% of the time he is answering calls. The national average of ‘uncommitted time’ is 30%. In addition, although our response time for priority calls is decent, averaging six minutes, what is not tracked is the time it takes us to respond to non-priority calls. Non-priority calls include things like homes that have been burglarized, but you don’t know it until five hours later. Coming home

from work and finding your home broken into is one of the worst feelings and is a terrible thing to happen to an individual, but unfortunately it is not considered high priority since the trail is already cold,” Gage said. The quarterly crime statistics for south Austin were released: violent crime is down by 11% and year-todate down by 4%. Property crime is down 7% for the quarter and 5% down for the year. “I think much of that is due to you, our citizens, who are looking out for their neighbors. You are our eyes and ears. Criminals don’t want to be seen and when neighborhoods have Neighborhood Watch programs, it really helps reduce overall crime. Those areas have had a tremendous decrease in crime” said Gage. “We are on a three-year trend of lower crime and overall at a five-year low because of the combined effort with APD and our citizens,” he added. “Preventing crime is the responsibility of the entire community and works best when citizens and police Continued on next page

Sergeant Jamie Jobes also discussed the importance of reporting teens that may be breaking curfew, especially once school begins on August 26. “In the summer, there is no daytime curfew for those under age 17. However, there is a nighttime curfew, which is as follows: Sunday-Thursday, 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and Friday-Saturday 12:00 a.m.-6:00 a.m.” Jobes added: “During the school year, the daytime curfew is 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. School-aged kids are typically supposed to be in school, although there may be some exceptions. If you see kids on the street or in neighborhoods during those hours and you suspect they are of school age, please call 911. Juveniles are often responsible for much of the burglary-type crime that happens during those hours. I know, we all say ‘Not my kid, they wouldn’t do that.’ But it’s better to be on the safe side and notify the police.” On the other side of the spectrum are a group of teens who are learning more the inner workings of becoming a police officer and what the job really encompasses. “Tonight, we have some special guests here. Along the far wall, are the leaders of tomorrow, they are the Police Explorers. These high school students are here on their own time and are interested in learning more about becoming a Police Officer. They learn what police officers do and receive in-depth training,” said Jobes. Austin Fire Department and EMS also have explorer programs. Among the group is Bowie high school student Cody Martin, who joined the Explorers eight months ago. “I wanted to be a police officer, so I contacted one and he referred me to this program,” said Martin, who will be a senior this fall. “The program is open to students from ages 14 up to 21. At 21 is when we are eligible to apply to become a police officer. We meet every Tuesday and they teach us things like how to respond to a domestic crisis, and weekend events to learn about traffic and crowd control. We just returned from a competition with timed events where we earned two second place awards. One, called Active shooter, was for which team could go in a building, clear it and find the offender. We also attend Explorer Academy, which is three weeks long, meets 8 hours a day and is very disciplined. We learn things like case law. We have ranks, but to earn that, we have to take a test and Oaktest Hill Gazette my is coming up,” explained Martin. Size: 3 col (6.08”) x 10” “No one else in my family is a police Color officer.

something different. My parents are happy that I have found something that I am passionate about. I am also in ROTC in school, which I have been in since ninth grade, but I am most interested in this program because it provides hands-on experience to what being a police officer is really like, which is my goal,’ Martin said. Although it is still a few months away, it’s not too soon for neighborhood groups to register for National Night Out, which is October 1. A description of the event from the APD website: “Residents in neighborhoods throughout Austin and across the nation are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks will all occur simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.” This year, the event will kickoff at Barton Creek Mall, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. “We will have all areas of APD, AFD, EMS and also Travis County represented. The kickoff is a big deal and this is the first time it will be held in South Austin in a few years,” said Jobes. If you would like to register your neighborhood or group, please go the APD website. Registration does not guarantee that an officer will drop by, but it will put you on the list for a possible visit as well as let the department know how successful National Night out is. For registration information go to this website: http://austintexas.gov/nno. To learn more about current crime in your area, reports are available at this link: http://austintexas.gov/ department/apd-reports. To learn more about what district representative (DR) covers neighborhoods in South Austin and the Oak Hill area, http://austintexas.gov/page/ district-representatives-region-4. The main number is 512-874-8100. The District Representatives for most of the Oak Hill area are Senior Police Officer Jeffrey Binder and Officer Josh Visi. Ongoing training is available at the substation and occurs each month. “Our Train the Trainer meeting is the First Tuesday of each month here at the station at 6:30 p.m. It starts with the old-school mentality of neighbors looking out for each other, but then we dig deeper and discuss things like when to call 911 versus 311, as well as what might be considered suspicious activity. I can’t stress this enough. It is because of good folks coming forward and taking control of their neighborhoods—that helps reduce crime,” said Jobes.

Wildflower Center starts work on unique family garden The Luci Baines Johnson and Ian Turpin Family Garden at the Wildflower Center will be a regional jewel and a national model, according to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. After a ceremonial groundbreaking on May 1, 2013, construction began last week and the garden, which will double the size of the center’s garden acreage, will open in spring of 2014. It will occupy 4.5 acres of woodland and meadow, providing a setting for hands-on, creative play while demonstrating key concepts in biology, botany, ecology, geology, hydrology and more. This garden is designed for interaction with native plants through features like Nature’s Spiral, a mosaic-inlaid limestone wall that illustrates the spiral shapes found in sunflower heads, agaves and Turk’s caps. Giant bird’s nests, the Metamorphosis Maze, a central creek and grotto and many more features will provide fantastic experiences in nature, according to the center’s senior director. A covered pavilion will provide space for group learning and events and the Giant Play Lawn will be a place to run and have fun. “Our generation was able to explore nature more easily, said Damon Waitt, the senior director of the Wildflower Center and Family

Garden project coordinator. “This garden is a way to bring families together and provide a chance for exploration and nature play for this generation and generations to come.” This whimsical world is the brainchild of landscape architect Gary Smith, an award-winning designer who created Enchanted Woods at Winterthur in Delaware and the Tropical Mosaic Garden in Florida. The project is being designed and constructed according to the most rigorous guidelines for sustainable landscapes, and has been selected as a pilot by the Sustainable Sites Initiative, which developed a national rating system for “green” landscapes. Susan Rieff, the Wildflower Center’s executive director, said, “There is nothing like this garden in Texas on many levels. The Luci and Ian Family Garden will offer children a safe environment for exploring the natural world that we hope will instill a sense of wonder and excitement.” The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has raised $4.4 million of the $5 million for the Luci and Ian Family Garden considered the centerpiece of its master plan. The $4.4 million raised thus far has come from 20-plus generous donors, including Lynda Johnson Robb.

‘Blazing Bows’ at the Broken Spoke Continued from p. 3

Hattersley, accompanied the group on guitar, and fiddler Kay Mueller helped lead the fiddle performance along with another fiddler, Catherine Van Zanten. Together the four Suzuki teachers have represented “Fiddle Fest” since around 1994. “It is important that we do the show at The Spoke because it is a show about the history of fiddle in Texas and all the songs we play have been played and danced to right there for years,” Mary Hattersley said. “And it’s where the famous Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys often performed.” The Hattersleys along with Mueller and Van Zanten also bring their students together at the Austin Suzuki Academy on Saturday mornings for group and theory lessons. Blazing Bows’ former campers have returned every year to perform their finale at The Broken Spoke as part of the Hattersley family tradition. “It gives me so much joy to play music. You can get all bollixed up in music with the practicing and the playing, but it’s all about the joy,” Mary Hattersley said. The Blazing Bows perform at the Old Settler’s Music Festival in Driftwood each April and at the Austin Art Festival in July, and previously performed at the Pioneer Farm May Pole celebration. They cancelled all other summer shows when doctors diagnosed Mary Hattersley with cancer last June. In December every year they perform at the Austin Armadillo Bazaar. They plan to also take their Blazing Bows shows to local celebrations, nursing homes, and schools as well in 2014. “It’s so important to me and the Blazing Bows to play at The Broken Spoke because of the music history. People remember going to The Broken Spoke when they were kids. A lot of times, it was a family place,” Mary Hattersley said. Ironically, while their Blazing Bows have played The Broken Spoke regularly for nearly two decades, the couples’ band, Greezy Wheels, never performed there.

Greezy Wheels – 2013 Texas Music Hall of Fame inductees The Hattersleys reunited the band, Greezy Wheels, in 2001 and it was signed to a major record label. The band has since formed its own label, Mahatma Records, and made The Austin Chronicle’s top ten list in 2011 for their album, Gone Greezy. Some might label the past few years as Greezy Wheels’ “heyday,” but the band’s fan base knew the group’s sound as one ahead of its time—once referred to as “progressive country” 40 years ago. Greezy Wheels created the sound as an amalgamation of country and western, blues and jazz music. Continued on next page

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Blazing Bowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; perform at the Broken Spoke honky tonk Continued from p. 14 Cleve Hattersley played mostly solo one-night gigs around Austin before forming the Greezy Wheels band in the 1970s. Its members convinced Mary Egan to leave Kenneth Threadgillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, the Hootenanny Hoots, and to join the Greezy Wheels. Not long afterwards, Eddie Wilson (now Threadgillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant proprietor), and other co-founders of the legendary live music venue, Armadillo World Headquarters, caught their show. Wilson jumped at the chance to book Greezy Wheels as a back-up band for the Flying Burrito Brothers and the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation just took off after that. Greezy Wheels played the Armadillo World Headquarters more often than any other band and backed up national music stars regularly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We backed up â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Boss,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bruce Springsteen, at Armadillo World Headquarters when he was doing his first tour of the United States. He had just played Houston and a bunch of people followed him down here to Austin. He was young and nobody really knew who he was,â&#x20AC;? Mary Hattersley said. Greezy Wheels backed up other regular acts at the Armadillo World Headquarters at the time, including Willie Nelson, Marcia Ball, Alvin Crow, Asleep at the Wheel, and Doug Sahm before the group disbanded in 1978. Twenty-five years later, Mary and

Cleve, and his sister, Lissa Hattersley, reunited Greezy Wheels in 2001. Currently, their newest album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kitty Cat Jesusâ&#x20AC;?, which was released in May, features two songs: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Cry Myself to Sleep,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Get Away With It,â&#x20AC;? that have received lots of local radio station air play. Other Greezy Wheels members include: lead vocalist Lissa Hattersley, vocalist Penny Jo Pullus, drummer Johnny Bush, bassist Brad Houser, and trombone and harp player, Matt Hubbard. Both Bush and Houser previously played with Edie Brickell and The New Bohemians in the 1980s. Hubbard also performs with Willie Nelson. Greezy Wheels will perform again Oct. 11 at the Starlight Theater Restaurant and Saloon in Terlingua, and Oct. 12 at Padres Bar and Grill in Marfa as part of the Chinati Foundation Open House there. The event includes two days of art, music and lectures and brings in visitors from all around the world. The Hattersley hippie years Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Oscar Butler, was a choir professor at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Butler put a violin under his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chin when she turned ten. Years later, she attended NMSU, but only from 1961 through 1962, before running off to San Francisco. She also later lived in Santa Fe, before moving to Austin in the 1970s where

she met Cleve Hattersley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a hippie for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Mary Hattersley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a wild spirit.â&#x20AC;? This past June marked the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 39th anniversary, as common law husband and wife, legally registered in Travis County. Cleve is 66 and Mary just celebrated her 70th birthday June 8. Doctors diagnosed her with vulvar cancer and removed all the affected tissue July 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They found out I had it right when we were in the middle of (Blazing Bows) summer camp. I decided we would do camp anyway. The doctors went in and found the cancer all in one place and got it out. The surgery went well. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing else required,â&#x20AC;? she said. A Little Fiddle Song History Fiddle history resounds within the Blazing Bows as much as their music. Mary Hattersley introduces each song to their audiences with a brief history. Interestingly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bile em Cabbage Downâ&#x20AC;? often translated to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boil them Cabbage Down,â&#x20AC;? for Mary Hattersleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students, has been renamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Violin Cabbage Down.â&#x20AC;? The fiddle breakdown features seven variations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One year we were playing this song and the electricity went out (at The Broken Spoke,) and we just kept playing it in the dark. We were still playing when the lights came Continued on back page

City of Austin news Pet adoptions are needed. Animal welfare leaders came together on July 19 came to address the current cat overcrowded conditions at area shelters. There is no additional room for cats or kittens at area shelters. This includes the Austin Animal Center, The Austin Humane Society and Austin Pets Alive. The Austin Animal Center has almost 600 felines, Austin Pets Alive has close to 900, and the Austin Humane Society has more than 300. At this time these shelters are not accepting owner surrendered cats and are asking that people find a new home for their cat(s) or kitten(s). Pet owners can make an appointment to surrender a cat for a future date at the Austin Animal Center. The Austin Animal Center will only accept sick and injured felines until further notice. The public is advised if they find healthy baby kittens without a mother to leave the kittens in place. All three agencies are waiving fees on all cats and kittens to help keep Austin no-kill by saving a life from Friday, July 19- Sunday, July 21. Interested adopters can visit www. austinanimalcenter.org to view a vast array of beautiful felines ready

City traffic project to help Brodie Lane bottleneck will begin in Aug. Continued from p. 1 rent congestion problem in the area. “We’re going to take off right there where the fire department is—west of there— and pick up to four lanes and continue them on around to the north side of the fire station and con-

nect directly into where Davis Lane on the east side of Brodie connects,” Jackson said. “That’s how it’s going to help the traffic. It’s going to make it a continuous four-lane all the way.” Jackson said the project, which will be constructed by Smith Contract-

ing Company, is estimated to cost approximately $4.5 million. Construction on the roadway is slated to begin in early to mid-August and is estimated to take about a year to complete, Jackson said.

Commissioner’s Corner Continued from p. 7 sioner’s office…As our County Judge did when he appointed Bruce Todd to fill the Precinct 2 Commissioner office after former Precinct 2 Commissioner Sarah Eckhardt resigned to seek the office of county judge. (Our County Judge Sam Biscoe will not seek re-election to that office.) Another situation (extensively covered in the news) concerning a possible vacancy in a county office is that of the Travis County District Attorney office. We’ve seen calls for the District Attorney to resign or

be removed from office. We saw numerous people addressing the Commissioners Court during the Citizens Communication portion of our weekly agenda…Some called for the Commissioners Court to remove the District Attorney from office. The Commissioners Court eventually addressed the situation as an official agenda item. Our County Attorney explained that, under state law, the Commissioners Court has no authority to remove any elected official from office. And even if the District Attorney were to resign, a

Precinct 3 new District Attorney would not be appointed by the Commissioners Court… nor by the County Judge. Again under state law, the Governor fills a vacancy in the office of any district attorney, since a district attorney is technically an employee of the state (not the county). As you can see, we’ve only just begun to answer the questions I posed in my opening paragraph. Next time we’ll continue our “civics lesson” on the role and powers of your county government.

The Word from Oak Hill Continued from p. 5 catfish po-boys as well. So what should I try? I mean, if I had the guts. Or at least a good heart. Probably the three house specialties. One is called Gold Band Creole, a spicy blend of shrimp, fettuccine and Parmesan cheese. Another is called Speedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catfish with Crawfish Macque Choux. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sautĂŠed catfish on a bed of rice and smothered in crawfish and Creole corn chowder.

neighborly news

Last but not least is Alligator Sauce Piquante, which is gator meat cooked in a tomato-based roux. That said, I usually go to Evangelineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the music and the beer. So sue me. â&#x20AC;˘Â â&#x20AC;˘Â â&#x20AC;˘ According to The KCM Blog â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a real estate blog located at kcmblog. com â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ten cities have attracted more new residents than all other U.S. cities, and four of the ten are Texan.

Coming in at number 10 is Houston, described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best place to sleep on a park benchâ&#x20AC;? by the blog. At number 9 is Dallas, which they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city for unemployed sports fans.â&#x20AC;? At number 8 is Los Angeles, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city for expensive vacations,â&#x20AC;? and at number 7 is NY, New York, which they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city for rich foodies.â&#x20AC;?

And at number 5 is Phoenix, Arizona, which they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city to save up for a house,â&#x20AC;? and which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll add, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so you can move the hell out.â&#x20AC;? At number 4 is San Diego, which they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city for beach bums making big bucks,â&#x20AC;? and coming in at number 3 is Austin, which they call the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best city for eco-friendly musicians.â&#x20AC;? The top two spots go to Charlotte, NC, which they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best city for thrifty homebodiesâ&#x20AC;? and which

‘Blazing Bows’ perform at the Broken Spoke honky tonk Continued from p. 15

back on. It was so cool,” Mary said. “The other reason for playing at The Broken Spoke is that the great Texas fiddler Bob Wills played there,” she added. The first song the group performed, “Lil’ Liza Jane,” enjoys a long history that dates back to the early 1900s with roots in standard, jazz and bluegrass music. First recorded by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys in 1947, Nina Simone performed it at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960, then David Bowie and his King Bees performed it in 1964, and The Band recorded a version of it in 1968. Finally, it appeared on an album recorded by Alison Krauss and Union Station, which earned a 1998 Grammy Award. The Blazing Bow’s third song, “Rubber Dolly” made famous by Appalachian string bands in the 1920s and 1930s became a favorite performed by 1960s folk singer Woody Guthrie and then 1970s country singer Ray Price. Next the group performed an Irish jig written in the early nineteenth century called “Swallowtail.” “That’s one of the most beautiful songs ever to become a fiddle song,”

Mary Hattersley said. “Every fiddle tune should contain a jig.” For their fourth piece, local fiddle player Billie Curtis performed the American classic entitled “Soldier’s Joy,” a 200-year-old song recognized as the oldest and most widely distributed tune in the English speaking language. Curtis, who plays with Lone Star Swing, formerly played with Houston’s popular Wild River Band, as well as Western Swing legends such as Johnny Gimble and Herb Remington. He has a daughter who plays with the Blazing Bows. His band performs at El Mercado in Austin most Thursday nights. The Blazing Bows also performed “Drowsy Maggie,” featuring Anna Wicker on the fiddle, followed by a medley of “Turkey in the Straw”/”Arkansas Traveler”/”Devil’s Dream,” – a fiddler’s all-time greatest hits list. Performing “The Orange Blossom Special” with the Blazing Bows holds particular significance to Mary Hattersley. She remembers once teaching fiddler Jean Luc Ponty to play the song, backstage at the Armadillo World Headquarters while they waited to perform back up to Frank Zappa and his band, The Mothers of Invention.

“It was just a few chords, but Ponty picked it right up,” she said. “Then he performed it on stage.” She and the children also performed “La Culebra,” translated “The Rattlesnake,” a mariachi standard. Its origins reach back as far as 1944 when Ruben Fuentes Gasson played it with Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan as the group’s violinist and composer. Later his reputation grew when he performed on Linda Ronstadt’s multi-Platinum album, Canciones De Mi Padre. The Blazing Bows performed Cotton Collins’ version of “Westphalia Waltz,” about Polish immigrants during the Great Depression who worked in the coalmines of the Alleghenies and in the mills of Massachusetts. Collins and his Lone Star Playboys renamed the folk song after the Texas town by the same name and performed it often as part of their lunchtime broadcast on radio station, WACO in Waco. And the Blazing Bows rendered Glen Miller’s big band song, “In the Mood” a fiddle version at The Broken Spoke. The song once considered “racy” and originally written about Tin Pan Alley, later became part of The Beatles’ recording of

Members of the Blazing Bows perform at the Broken Spoke. “All You Need is Love,” thanks to producer George Martin. The Blazing Bows performed one of 129 versions of the often misspelled Irish folk song about a bar maid, “Drowsy Maggie,” as well. The song became internationally known after the band Jethro Tull first performed the song in concert in 1989 at the Apollo Theater in Manchester, England. The favorite of the night, “The Cotton-Eye Joe” had family members dancing on the dance floor in front of The Broken Spoke bandstand. The Moody Brothers’ version of the song won a Grammy Award nomination for best country instrumental in 1985. Then The Chieftains received a Grammy Award nomination for their album, Another Country, with Ricky Skaggs in 1992. The group closed the night with

“Ashokan Farewell,’’ named after a camp in the Catskill Mountains not far from Woodstock, New York, once run by Jay Unger and Molly Mason. Written originally as an instrumental Scottish lament, called “Fiddle Fever” Ashokan campers later wrote lyrics. Two 16-year old girl members of the Blazing Bows, offered their own words to the song July 15. The song served as the opening track to a PBS special about the Civil War, created by filmmaker Ken Burns. Twenty-five other versions of the song were used in the 11-hour series produced and broadcast on television in 1984. The song’s poignant lyrics focus on the emotions young musicians feel about leaving fiddle camp. It served as an appropriate closing performance for the Blazing Bows’ program finale at The Broken Spoke.
