Bowie quarterback Austin Eschenburg (#15) threw for 225 yards and three touchdowns.
In the Barton Hills neighborhood, patrol cars roam the streets day and night as investigators keep a sharp eye on homes and property. Using nothing more than a cell phone, pen and clipboard and hours of dedication, neighborhood residents have significantly reduced the crime rate and built a community-wide safety network. On Sept. 26, John Luther, director of the Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch Program, along with the Travis County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office, will host a Neighborhood See NEIGHBORHOOD on p. 21

Letter to the Editor â€œOak Hill Parkwayâ€? design has evolved Dear Editor, Those of us who have been working over the past several years for a more community-friendly solution for Highway 290 West, appreciate the Gazetteâ€™s early coverage of a new alternative for traffic improvements in Oak Hill.Â The revised design came out of recent conversations between TxDOT/CTRMA engineers and Fix290 leaders, who were once regarded as the opposition. We have not seen the final drawing because it is under preparation by TxDOT engineers for presentation at a public meeting on Oct. 22, but we applaud the process.Â Rules for the EIS study mandate require involvement of the community and consideration of multiple alternatives, tolled and nontolled. That is happening.Â Toward the end of last weekâ€™s article, the Gazette reports critical comments on the parkway from a community member, identified as a retired engineer who drives through the Y on a daily basis. The
comments seem directed at textbook concepts comparing a parkway and a freeway rather than the current project,Â which has been dubbed the â€œOak Hill Parkwayâ€? by community vote.Â The evolving design has gone far beyond the simple contrast between at-grade parkway and elevated freeway. TxDOTâ€™s expertise and resources have allowed this to happen. Rather than following simple textbook concepts, Alternative F has design elements that specifically keep the traffic moving through the area effectively and still give access to local residents and businesses. Some of these were suggested by the community. It is important to know that the new alternative will move traffic through Oak Hill as quickly as any of the other designs. Â Additionally, this design:Â t)BT64JTQBSUJBMMZEFQSFTTFE under all major cross streets in a rolling profile, exactly like all of the other alternatives. t)BTBNPSFFÄ?DJFOUEFTJHOXFTU of The â€œYâ€?. t1SPWJEFTHSFBUFSBDDFTTUIBOBOZ other alternative with a direct access to FM 1826 at the hospital and to

The Word from Oak Hill Mike Jasper The word from Oak Hill is... over. Even though it’s only late September, the college football season is essentially over for me and other Longhorns fans. Yes, I know this isn’t a sports column, but I can’t resist a comment or two because Texas is just that bad. Why can’t we get a Johnny Manziel? Watching A&M lose last week was much more fun and exciting than watching the Longhorns win against New Mexico State. (Although, make no mistake about it, Texas owns New Mexico State.) And why are we stuck with David Ash? He’s no Johnny Football, more like Johnny Fumble. Besides, he looks like Conan O’Brien, if Conan was on steroids and bleached blond by the sun. Listening to us lose to Ole Miss was the worst. That’s right, listening, because I don’t get the Longhorns Network. Do you know how involved you have to be to listen to a football game on the radio? And then to listen to your team lose? It’s a commitment, almost a sacrifice. What? I can get the Longhorns Network for free on Time Warner extended cable? Channel 444 or 1593 in HD? Never mind. ••• Nate Rosenberg, a teacher at Small Middle School, tells me it’s time for the second-annual Small Green Fest, and it’s exactly what you think it is—a festival to promote environmental awareness and action. The festival is the main fundraiser for Small Green Academy, a program for sixth to eighth graders that centers on environmental issues and education. This year’s fest will feature: • A native plant sale • Vendors of all kinds • Live music • Door prizes • Arts & crafts And this year for the first time ever, Small Middle School will host the first annual AISD Environmental Stewardship 2013 Conference and Workshop. The conference will take place the same day as the festival, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For the cost of a $10 wristband you can join in on this fun and charitable event. Small Green Fest

I think every department and branch of our County organization should be forced to “scrub” their budget, to make those hard decisions on where to spend a finite amount of money.

The Natural Gardener remains Austin’s favorite gardening store The Natural Gardener is well known in Austin for being the original supplier of organic products, native, and well adapted plants, bulk compost, soils, and mulches, and the place to go for well-researched gardening information. They are currently celebrating winning Best Gardening Store in the 2013 Austin Chronicle’s Reader’s Poll, for the eleventh time. What a wonderful way to highlight its twenty-year anniversary of operation in its Old Bee Caves Road location! The Natural Gardener is also known for its free classes that they host most Saturday mornings (excluding the spring months of March through May). Their classes cover a wide array of subjects all related to growing organically and living sustainably in Central Texas. Certified as a NWF (National Wildlife Federation) Wildlife Habitat, the display and educational gardens at the store have been featured in Texas Highways, Herb Companion, and Fine Gardening magazines. Most recently, The Natural Gardener will be featured on PBS’s TV show Growing A Greener World.

sets family flooring business apart Gary Raesz Custom Floors is a family business that offers a wide selection of hardwood, stone, limestone, marble and carpeting from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. Their showroom at 7500 Highway 71West near the “Y” in Oak Hill is fully furnished with samples of all manner of flooring and eco-friendly flooring options. “Anything you are looking for in the area of residential and commercial flooring, we can accommodate,” Raesz says. Raesz’s business offers full service to their customers, with a knowledgable sales staff to help the client select the best flooring for their projects and professional installers who will complete the project expertly and on time. “Our craftsmen are considerate and timely and know that their main priority is having a finished product that meets or exceeds your expectations,” says Raesz.
Gary Raesz has been putting the floor underneath the feet of Austinites for 37 years and in recent years sons GW and Cody have teamed up to follow in his footsteps. Raesz attributes his longevity in a profession that has seen many others come and go to discipline. “You have to roll up your sleeves and take care of your business, or else someone else will,” he explains. Raesz’s company has put in the floors for some of the swankiest homes, businesses, and high-rise properties and in the Austin area, but Raesz’s niche encompasses more than just the high-end. “We do the big house, little house, tree house, doll house, and give you a sample for your outhouse,” he says. Gary Raesz Custom Floors’ showroom is open every weekday from 8 am to 5 pm and by appointments on Saturdays.
Updating your sprinkler system can save you big on water bills Many years ago Jim Hickman’s favorite English teacher at Austin High School, Warner Dahlberg, used to warn him that he would end up digging ditches. As owner of Aqua Systems, a full service irrigation and landscaping company, Hickman is proud to say that he has been digging ditches for the past 27 years. Hickman is no longer the sole salesperson, installer, designer and repairman. These days, wife Nancy, and son-in-law Cody Roquette help run Aqua Systems. And with recent technological advances, there is a lot more to the irrigation business these days than digging ditches. “In the last five years, the irrigation systems have gotten a lot greener,” explained Hickman. “We use a lot more drip systems, especially in flower beds, the spray nozzles are much more efficient, plus the controllers are greener.” The new “smart” controllers can now take into account historical weather data and patterns, compare them with current onsite conditions and will adjust run time and frequency accordingly. The most advanced systems even take into account future weather forecasts. “For instance,” explained Roquette, “if there was a 50% chance of rain in the next couple of days, your system may not come on at all.” The controller can also be monitored from any device with internet access. The installer will enter in plant types, degree of shade, soil type and slope and with this information, the controller will adjust the irrigation to avoid wasting water through run-off or over watering. If there is a broken head or pipe, flow sensors can detect that, the zone will be shut off and
an email will be sent out informing the owner. “Most residential and commercial sprinkler systems in Central Texas do not yet have smart controllers,” said Nancy Hickman. “ but the savings from lower water bills add up so quickly, it is hard to believe they won’t soon be the standard.” Roquette estimates a savings of up to 40% with the lower end smart controllers, and 60% with the high end controllers. With prices starting at around $500, customers are seeing a return on investment in as little as a few months. Additional water savings will be had by converting beds to drip irrigation and changing existing nozzles to multi-projection ones. As further enticement, the City of Austin provides rebates to consumers for making these upgrades. “We had one customer who was irrigating just a portion of his yard and we put in a smart controller, converted his flower beds to drip irrigation and his grass zones to high-efficiency nozzles, AND added three times the area, and his water bills were still cut in half,” said Roquette. Aqua Systems will audit consumer’s sprinkler systems for a refundable $30. They can help you understand the city rebates and also give you a good idea of how quickly an updated system will pay for itself with lower water bills. “We are dedicated to the smart use of water,” said Hickman. “Our systems are green because they use less of this precious natural resource; they are green because they actually keep your landscape greener; and, they are green because they help you keep more green in your pocket.”

September 19-October 2, 2013
Fall is a good time to get your herb garden started The ornamental value of herbs enables them to be used in flower beds, borders, rock gardens, or corner plantings. Some herbs are annuals while others are perennial or come up year after year. You can locate annual herbs in your annual flower garden or vegetable garden. The perennial herbs should be located at the side of the garden where they won’t interfere with next year’s soil preparation. Care for the herb garden will be similar to your vegetable or flower garden. Select a sunny, well-drained location. Apply a slow-release fertilizer at the rate of 2 pounds per 100 square feet. Water as necessary during dry periods. Generally, you need about one inch of water per week, if not supplied by natural rainfall. A mulch will help conserve soil moisture and reduce weed growth as well. The mints prefer moist soil so they will require more frequent watering. Annual and biennial herbs can be established by planting the seed directly in the garden or starting seeds indoors for later transplanting to the garden. You can save seed produced by the herb plants for next year’s crop or obtain seed from your local garden center or seed catalog. Some herb seeds such as dill, anise, caraway, or coriander can be used for flavorings. Perennial herbs can be propagated by cuttings or by division. Divide plants every 3 to 4 years in the early spring. The plants should be dug up and cut into several sections. You can also cut 4 to 6 inch sections of the stem and root these by placing the cuttings in moist sand in a shady area. In 4 to 8 weeks, roots should form on these cuttings. Herbs such as sage, winter savory, and thyme can be propagated by cuttings. Chives, lovage, and tarragon can be propagated by division of the roots or crowns. Leaves of many herbs such as parsley and chives can be harvested for fresh seasonings. On these plants you can gradually remove some of the leaves as you need them. Don’t remove all the foliage at one time. These plants will produce over a long period of time if they are cared for well. On rosemary and thyme, clip the tops when the plants are in full
bloom. Usually, leaves and flowers are harvested together. Basil, fennel, mint, sage, summer savory, sweet marjoram, tarragon, and winter savory are harvested just before the plant starts to bloom. Chervil and parsley leaves can be cut and dried anytime. Lovage leaves should be harvested early during the first flush of growth. After harvesting, hang the herbs in loosely tied bundles in a well-ventilated room. You can also spread the branches on a screen, cheesecloth, or hardware cloth. For herbs where leaves only are needed, the leaves can be spread on flat trays. Keep dust off the herbs by a cloth or similar protective cover that will allow moisture to pass through. Many of the herbs we grow today are from the Mediterranean region of the world and thus hot, dry summer weather suits them
perfectly. All too often gardeners lose herbs because they don’t have good enough drainage (they really do best in a raised bed) or because they don’t have them in the right exposure. Most require sun. The mints and a few other herbs will grow well in shade or partial shade. Following is a list and description of some commonly used, adapted herbs for this area: BASIL - This is one of the easiest of all herbs to grow. It is a rather strong herb, but one that is delightful when chopped fine and mixed with butter. In addition to the standard green forms, there’s a purple-leafed basil and a lemon-scented basil. Basil is quite tender so at the first sign of frost you can expect to lose it. CAMOMILE - This herb makes one of the best of all herbal teas. There are two varieties. English
and German camomile. The dried blossoms of either can be used to make tea. You’ll need to experiment with the amount you want to use, but try pouring boiling water over about one tablespoon for each cup desired and then filter this through
a tea strainer after it has steeped for about 10 to 15 minutes. CATNIP - Is an interesting herb to grow, especially if you have cats. The cats like to roll all over the catnip

Herbs, continued as well as any surrounding plants, so youâ€™ll probably find itâ€™s best to grow this herb in a hanging basket. Although it is sometimes used to make a hot tea, catnipâ€™s main attribute seems to be known only by cats. COMFREY - C omfrey is a rank-growing herb with large â€œdonkey-earâ€? leaves that remind one of green sandpaper. It has been promoted as being high in protein and an excellent foodstuff, but unfortunately, itâ€™s hard to find a suitable way to eat it. It is widely used as a tea made either from the leaves or from the roots. LEMON BALM - Is a member of the mint family and it can be a very rank growing plant. The leaves have a strong lemon odor and make a delightful tea or they can be used to flavor regular teas. Because of its extreme vigor, itâ€™s probably best to grow this plant in a confined bed area or in containers. MARJORAM and OREGANO - These herbs are quite similar, although marjoram is considered the milder of the two. Theyâ€™re both easy to grow and can be used year round. Except in an extreme winter, they look better in the fall and winter than in mid-summer when the growth begins to slow. Oregano is the familiar herb in pizzas and one plant would make a lot of pizzas. MINTS - There are many mints. Spearmint is one of the most popular and the easiest to grow. Peppermint is more difficult to grow. Thereâ€™s a pineapple mint, an apple mint, an orange mint (this is so vigorous it soon becomes a weed) and many variations of these basic fragrances. All mints appreciate moisture and do best where they get afternoon shade. A good place to plant spearmint is at the base of a downspout. ROSEMARY - Rosemary comes in many forms from a bush that grows up to four feet tall to a low-growing groundcover variety. The fragrance is rather strong but rosemary is typically used with many meat dishes, especially chicken. One good idea is to use a cut sprig of rosemary to dip into barbecue sauce and then brush it on chicken. CHIVES - Smallest member of the onion family. Chives are easily grown from seed or transplants. Use any way you would onions. Perfect topping with sour cream for baked potatoes. Add to cottage cheese,
omelets, sauces, and garnish for almost any dish. CORIANDER - Also known as Cilantro or Chinese Parsley. Well known in this area for the use of the leaves in Mexican cooking. Always available in the produce section. Leaves have a very strong â€œcleanâ€? flavor. Use only young leaves, the older ones are too strong. The seeds have a flavor similar to orange and are used in pastries, sausage, cooked fruit, and are an important ingredient in pickling spice and curry powder. Easily grown from seed and can sometimes be found growing wild in this area. Sow seeds every few weeks to have a steady supply of young leaves. DILL - One of the easiest herbs to grow from seed. Will easily become a weed if seed heads are allowed to dry on the plant. Use in pickling, add to cottage or cream cheese, most vegetables, fish, and the dried seed can be added to bread dough for a caraway-like flavor. Add to vinegar used to make salad dressings. The large green caterpillars that love to eat dill will turn into swallowtail butterflies, so plant enough for you and them. PARSLEY - Without a doubt the most used and least eaten herb in the world. Millions of pounds are used to garnish everything and promptly thrown away. A shame because parsley is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Parsley comes in two forms, the flat leaved or Italian parsley, and the curled or French parsley. There are many hybrids of each available as seeds or transplants. Seed is slow to germinate, but worth the wait. Parsley can have
problems with root maggots in this area. Parsley is a biennial, producing leaves the first year and flowers the next. Not only is parsley a garnish for any dish, it is excellent dipped in a batter and deep fried. Brown with butter and garlic for a sauce to baste grilled meats. SAGE - This is another herb that doubles as a durable landscape plant in this area. Very drought resistant; it can be killed by overwatering. Sage is best started from transplants or cuttings, but can be started from seed. There are many varieties of sage available, including Garden, Golden, Blue, Pineapple, Tri-color, and Clary. All can be used in cooking. Sage leaves should always be dried before using. Sage is a must in stuffing for poultry. Roast it with pork, add to butter and saute chicken in it. Goes well in egg and cheese dishes. Dried leaves will keep their flavor for years. THYME - With over 400 species available, this herb is another valuable plant to use in beds, rock gardens and as landscape accents. Varieties available locally include Common, Woolly, â€œMother-ofThymeâ€?, Lemon, English, Silver, and Golden. Thyme goes well in most meat dishes, poultry, fish, soups and vegetable dishes. Add a pinch of thyme to a tablespoon of honey and add to drained cooked carrots and onions. Thyme is a key herb used to make Cajun gumbo. Thyme, along with Sage, Rosemary, Marjoram, and Oregano should be considered the basics of every herb garden.

TxDOT gives update on roads Neighborhood Watch Continued from p. 1
When asked about price and funding options for a potential Oak Hill Parkway project, project leader Wade Strong said that while price is not an immediate consideration, tolling is a viable option. “Funding is certainly an issue,” said Strong, Chief Operating Officer at Rodriguez Transportation Group. “In order to get a project constructed within the next five to ten years, tolling is probably going to be the answer. If the community and folks in the Austin area decide they don’t want a toll road, it’s going to be a long time before it’s constructed unless funds are found by some other means. That’s just the reality.” Mopac South What’s new: Jimmie Roberts, an engineer with Jacobs Engineering who’s leading the Mopac South project, said improvements for the stretch of road from Ladybird Lake to Slaughter include two separate projects. The first project involves improvements at two intersections: Mopac and Slaughter Lane and Mopac and La Crosse Avenue. “What we’re looking at doing there is just making some operational improvements— some safety improve-
“In order to get a project constructed within the next five to ten years, tolling is probably going to be the answer. – Wade Strong, project engineer ments to help those intersections flow a little bit better than they do now,” Roberts said. When: Citizens can provide feedback on the two intersections on Oct. 24 at the Parkside Village commercial center. From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mobility Authority staff will be present at a tent and table setup to discuss the project and collect community responses. The larger Mopac South project stretches 8.2 miles, from just north of Ladybird Lake to Slaughter Lane. Roberts said the project team will be doing alternatives analysis and considering the use of a variety of mobility improvements, ranging from general purpose lanes to high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes and express lanes. “We’re looking at a wide spectrum of options for improving mobility in that eight mile section of Mopac South,” Robert said. An open house on the larger Mopac
South project (from Cesar Chavez to Slaughter) will take place on Nov. 7 at Bowie High at 5 p.m. SH 45 Southwest What’s new: The controversial SH 45 Southwest, a proposed 3.6 mile stretch of road to connect Mopac with FM 1626, will be back in the spotlight for an upcoming open house. When: Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. at Bailey Middle School. Similar to the Oak Hill Parkway events, the meeting will focus on gathering input on solutions for the project. Despite the roadway’s long and rocky history, Strong said the community meeting represents a fresh start for the project. “We just want to meet with the public for the first time and kick that project off,” Strong said. “We’re not coming in with any preconceived notion of what the project should be.”
program fights crime Continued from p. 1 Watch training program for those interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch program in their community. The training program will be held at 7 p.m. at 8656 Hwy. 71 West, Building A. The Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch Program began eight years ago when Luther, a longtime Barton Hills resident, noticed a rise in property crime in the area. “We became more surrounded by the city,” Luther said. “We noticed that our crime rate was beginning to rise to the point that people— like the weather—were always complaining about it and nothing happened.” Luther determined that the key to crime reduction in his neighborhood was to involve the neighborhood residents. “I began to map where crimes occurred in our neighborhood, specifically, on a large scale map, and began to notice patterns where things occurred. I thought ‘this is a problem and we just need a solution,’” Luther said. “Our neighbors themselves are the solution.” By recruiting neighbors to patrol
the streets in clearly marked Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch cars, Luther discovered that the community was able to be proactive in reporting and stopping crimes. Neighborhood Watch volunteers coordinate patrolling schedules to ensure that someone is watching the area while other residents have to be away from their homes. Luther said with about 25 volunteers, the Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch program is able to have someone on the street for five days a week during typical workday hours (8:30 a.m. to about 4 p.m.). “Our people, as neighborhood watch volunteers, know what they’re looking for,” Luther said. “They watch front doors to make sure that they’re closed. They look for garage doors open. They look for movement around the house. They look for strange cars. They know the neighborhood and when a strange car is there they’ll notice. If it becomes a suspicious car then they know how to report it.” Luther said criminals are deterred from entering a neighborhood that’s on alert. Continued on next page

Neighborhood Watch program fights crime Continued from p. 21 “There’s a lot more of us than there are of them,” Luther said. “I think we’re a little wiser than they are and we’re certainly more dedicated.” Luther said the training program will offer advice on how to start a Neighborhood Watch program as well as insight into the operations of the award winning Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch, which received an award for Outstanding Crime Prevention Program by the Central Texas Crime Prevention Association and the Commander’s Commendation Award from the southwest division of the Austin Police Department. “We’ll also throw in some really interesting things that I’ve learned over the years,” Luther said. “We offer one segment on how to make your home more secure for less than one dollar.” Travis County Precinct 3 Constable Sally Hernandez said Neighborhood Watch programs are able to prevent crime by utilizing more manpower than the police department is able to provide. “There are more eyes and ears on the street. It also shows that the community doesn’t want to be a victim,” Hernandez said. “They’re going to be more proactive and I think that in itself discourages people from coming into the neighborhood to commit crimes.” Hernandez said these preventative programs teach citizens to look out for suspicious activity and avoid door-to-door scams.
“Unfortunately, most of the stories I know—coming from the (District Attorney’s) Office—are after the fact,” Hernandez said. “Now I can work on prevention, whereas before it was always prosecuting those who’d committed the crime.” Luther said making sure volunteers understand the safety precautions and rules of Neighborhood Watch is an integral part of the training process. Luther said through thorough training during orientation, volunteers are instructed not to be armed and not to leave their vehicle when patrolling. The training is focused on how to report to and work with the police. “If you’re unarmed and unable to get out of your car, then that cuts down on the possibility of you winding up in a situation that is dangerous,” Luther said. “It protects the community, it protects our neighborhood and it protects individuals. So we’re very adamant about that.” Potential volunteers undergo an interview process to ensure that they understand the purpose of Neighborhood Watch. “This is not a vigilante program. Neighborhood Watch does not take the law into its own hands,” Luther said. “They approach it systematically, not emotionally. We want to make sure everyone understands that.” Luther said he’s most proud of the community of volunteers that the Barton Hills Neighborhood Watch has built.
Commissioner’s Corner Continued from p. 7 more from them. We hear so much about “affordability” here in Austin and Travis County. A big portion of that is the increasing tax burden imposed on our residents by ALL of our taxing entities—including utility and other fees, sales taxes, property taxes, and assorted huge bond elections. We’ve seen newspaper editorials, guest editorials, and letters to the editor that call for all taxing entities to do their part to lessen the tax burden for all.
As the Austin American-Statesman calls for all taxing jurisdictions to lessen their tax burdens, who will take the lead? I say, let’s have Travis County be the one. For the last 10 years we’ve increased the General Fund an average 6.9% each year (averaging a $28.4 million increase each year). Take out FY 09 and FY 10 (when we were forced to hold the line during a recession), then our increase averaged 8.1% each year (averaging a $33.2 million increase each year). We need to take that FY 10 mentality (1.1% increase for a $4.9
Precinct 3 million increase). We need to show our taxpayers that we hear their plea, we know their plight, and that Travis County is willing to do its part to help alleviate their tax burden. To paraphrase an email from one of my constituents: “Take a bold step to provide relief for the taxpayers… send a signal to the City that it too can find ways to reduce their budget”. We need to send the following message to ALL the taxing jurisdictions: “Travis County is offering tax relief for our constituents, and we challenge you to do the same thing”.

Dawgs win a thriller over Dragons Continued from p. 9 a short scoring run, before Dragon quarterback Collin Hinson sprinted across the goal line for a successful two-point conversion. Round Rock scored again with a long pass play on 3rd and 22 to move in front 15-7 at the half. McGarah caught his second touchdown after Eschenburg threw deep, behind the protection of offensive linemen Kyle Mealey, Caleb Teague, Keith McAlonan and Clayton Law.
Story sprinted up the middle and cruised over the goal line for an 8-yard touchdown, as Round Rock moved in front 22-14 with a subsequent successful two point conversion. Eschenburg’s physical run through the center of the Dragon defense gave Bowie a first down in the red zone. Johnson then took a quick toss from Eshenburg and dashed 19 yards down the sideline, putting the ball through the orange pylon for a Bulldog touchdown. Jake Walton’s

reception from Eschenburg on the two-point play tied the game 22-22. Story broke five tackles on a jaunt to the 1-yard line, before darting over the goal line for his third score. Myers scored the final touchdowns for Bowie, and Flanigan added the extra point before the specialist iced the game with a 40-yard field goal. Round Rock made the kick easier after the Dragons were offsides on a 45-yard miss by the junior kicker. Bowie now hosts a talented San Antonio Roosevelt squad led by quarterback Jacob Preciado, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in a win over Stevens. Rough Rider cornerback/receiver Arrion Springs has a verbal commitment to attend Oregon.

playing on the freshman basketball team, Oliver began to focus on football and track. In the spring, he competes on the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relay teams, in addition to running in the 400-meter event. Presently, Oliver joins with Pedro Martinez, Joseph Lewright, Zach Velasquez and Tyler Walker to form an impressive defensive secondary for the Bulldogs. In a recent victory over Round Rock, Oliver blocked a field goal in the second quarter and
year. “As a libero, I’m kind of the quarterback of the defense,” she noted. “I go in for the middles and I’m all defense the whole game.” The eldest of two children born to Michael and Susan Phillips, Caroline has important advice for younger pupils aspiring to compete athletically at the high school level. “It takes a lot of commitment and passion,” said Caroline. “You have to have your heart in the sport and want it enough to keep your grades up.” In her spare time, Caroline enjoys watching her younger brother
Robert play football for the Maroons junior varsity contingent. Business Management instructor and varsity boys’ basketball assistant coach Woody Robinson is Caroline’s favorite teacher at Austin High. “He holds the spirit of Austin High,” Phillips noted. Following graduation, Caroline plans to attend college and pursue a degree in a mathematically oriented subject. Phillips and fellow captain Carly Johnson entertain Del Valle on Friday with the first serve set for 6:30 p.m.

The youngest of three children born to Rob and Debbie Oliver, Preston has twice been invited to a ceremony honoring the top ten percent of his class. Both of Preston’s older sisters were Silver Stars at Bowie. His favorite athletic experience occurred when he intercepted a pass and sprinted into the end zone during a playoff game versus Round Rock
last year. “Logan Martin had a pick six and two plays later I got a pick six,” he recalled. Contemporary Issues instructor Mr. Ellerbrock is Preston’s favorite teacher at Bowie. “He teaches you about life and gives you a different point of view in aspects of life,” the senior defender noted. Oliver practiced Monday in preparation for Bowie’s game Friday versus San Antonio Roosevelt. “We worked on getting their basic fundamental plays down and finding their tendencies,” Oliver said.

Maroons still looking for first win by Patrick Olson
Following setbacks at Pflugerville and Cedar Ridge, the Austin High football team must rely on a young defense to notch that first win for the 2013 season. “We’re lacking depth in a lot of areas,” defensive coordinator Craig Charlton said before practice Tuesday. “We’ll also play really good, then let a big play occur. We are trying to be more consistent.” Led by sophomore quarterback Beau Kalbacher, Austin High hosts McNeil on Thursday at House Park, with kick off set for 7:30 p.m. The Maroons visited a motivated Pflugerville club after the Panthers were destroyed by Bowie in their opener. With Clarence Guidry and Jonathan Wallace pacing the ground game, Pflugerville ran for over 300 yards and dominated the line of scrimmage. Mason Choate scored a pair of rushing touchdowns and Deon Barnes added a score on the ground, but the Maroons encountered difficulty blocking for extra point attempts, as the Panthers prevailed 37-18. Cedar Ridge entertained Austin High on their homecoming, and
proceeded to record a 35-10 victory over the Maroons. Junior kicker Finn Hockey converted a field goal in the first half for the Maroons, but Raider quarterback Michael McCann threw for a pair of touchdowns en route to accumulating nearly 200 yards of aerial offense. Maroon cornerback Desmon Barrett must combine with safeties Chris Elizondo and Franklin Tirrell to limit Maverick signal caller Hayden Cooper’s success through the air. “Our safeties have got to play a big part in getting a win,” the coach added. On the defensive front, linemen Tyler Cole, Wyatt Simmons, Josh

Crockett Cougars get ready for District play by Patrick Olson The Crockett football team built a 16-0 lead at Lockhart, before falling 17-16. Then Seguin came to town last Friday and departed with a 55-27 triumph over the brown and gold. “Our team is progressing well and competing hard,” said coach John Waugh. “I feel we are on the right track to open district play in two weeks. Many questions have been answered in respect to our quarterback and offensive line positions.” The Cougars venture south Friday to face Drippings Springs with kick off set for 7:30 p.m. Through three games, quarterback Zach Ochoa continues to improve, completing 67 percent of his throws for 493 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. At running back, Justin Miller has 266 yards on 39 attempts with three scoring runs. Trevon Louis leads the team with
15 catches for 258 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Nikko Tamez found the end zone twice, with a total of 105 yards on seven grabs. Crockett averages 6.4 yards per offensive play. Defensively, Seth Riojas paces the club with 35 tackles and a pair of sacks. Jonathan Garcia snagged two interceptions and has 21 tackles. DJ Wilhite’s persistent attack mode has resulted in a fumble recovery and two blocked punts. Louis Sanchez paces the team with four tackles for loss. Garcia averages eight yards on punt returns. The Tigers feature quarterback TJ Coble and running back Bobby Credeur. After two defeats on the road to open the 2013 campaign, Dripping Springs returned home last Friday and slipped past Wimberley 41-36. Last year, the Tigers took down the Cougars 49-17 at Burger Stadium.
Christman and returning veteran Robert Navejas rotate in and out, but need to corral McNeil rusher Colton Russell. “Their running back is pretty good,” Charlton acknowledged. “They put him at quarterback sometimes for a zone read and sometimes at wide receiver. They try to get him the ball as much as possible.” At linebacker, Austin High features juniors Foster Keene and Patrick Dowell. The Maroons defeated the Mavericks last year 48-27.

Austin High volleyball update by Patrick Olson Austin High suffered a 13-25, 20-25, 25-17, 21-25 defeat to New Braunfels Canyon in the Lady Maroonsâ€™ next to last non-district encounter. Carly Johnson delivered 23 digs defensively, while Anna Carlson blasted 15 kills offensively. Setter Hannah Stinson had 39 assists while Breanna Jacksonâ€™s strong work at the net led to a block for the sophomore middle blocker. Caroline Phillips served an ace in the second game cutting the Canyon advantage to 24-19, before the visitors prevailed 25-20. Jackson displayed fast reflexes at the net flicking over a successful return that put Austin High on top 20-13 in the third game. Errant Canyon returns sealed the third game for the home team 25-17. The fourth game went back and forth with a block by Stinson tying it at 10-10. Phillips served another ace and the Maroons went in front before Canyon built a 20-17 lead. Another kill by Johnson and good instincts at the net from Stinson kept the contest close but kills by Madison Williams led to the Cougars winning the final game 25-21.
