Bake sale! to support pediatric cancer research

be a goo coo d kie

On Saturday, September 10, Austin will host a large, city-wide bake sale, with 100% of proceeds going to Cookies For Kids’ Cancer. Cookies For Kids’ Cancer raises funds for pediatric cancer research through local bake sales. It was founded by Gretchen Witt, a very determined mother, to help increase her young son’s odds in his cancer battle. When 2.5-year-old Liam was diagnosed in 2007, Gretchen was shocked to learn that the main reason over 25 percent of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of therapies was very simple: lack of funding. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer support research at leading pediatric cancer hospitals, including Texas Children’s in Houston. Sadly, Liam lost his battle to the disease this past January. Now, a group of Austin residents, Austin’s Good Cookies, are determined to honor Liam’s life and raise funds for pediatric cancer research. The Austin City-Wide Bake Sale will take place at several locations throughout Austin, the main event being at the Hill Country Galleria Amphitheatre. We will have live music by Joe McDermott and Staci Gray, dance troupe performances, bounce houses, Kiwi the Clown, Gymboree on the Go, Beary Stuffables, raffles for Hill Country Galleria stores gift cards and more! Austin City-Wide Cookies For Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale WHAT: A bake sale to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. WHERE: Steiner Ranch: Bella Mar & Towne Square soccer fields WHEN: Saturday, September 10; 10 am – 3 pm COST: All donations for activities and cookies go directly to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!

For more information on satellite locations for the bake sale and the Hill Country Galleria event, or if you are interested in volunteering, please go to our blog, www.austinsgoodcookies.com

Lakeway Forced Annexation

Dear Citizens of Lakeway, The Lakeway Zoning and Planning Commission has officially recommended against the City of Lakeway annexing my neighborhood, Travis Oak Trails. Despite this fact, Mayor DeOme has indicated that our area is still very much under consideration to be annexed. I have been a homeowner and proud resident of the Travis Oak Trails community for the past thirteen years. Before buying our house, my husband and I leased a duplex on Flying Jib in Lakeway for several years. We were drawn to this area from Shreveport, Louisiana as a result of visiting friends who had been living in Lakeway for a number of years. As Lakeway residents my husband and I enjoyed walking our dogs to the park, fishing and going swimming in the lake (no Swim Center yet), rock collecting with our grandchildren, getting to know our neighbors and experiencing the natural beauty of the area. I fell in love with Austin via my landfall in Lakeway, and for this I am extremely grateful. Knowing that we wanted to call the Austin area “home” in a more definitive way, my husband and I began looking for property to buy. However, we prospected for housing outside Lakeway’s city limits for several reasons – we didn’t have the economic status to make Lakeway our permanent domicile, and we wanted a bigger taste of the casual, laid-back (maybe even a bit “weird”) lifestyle that other parts of the Austin area were known for. Driving past the boundaries of Lakeway one morning on a quest to find home, I discovered Travis Oak Trails entirely by accident. It was “love at first sight” as I drove around the streets of TOT, drinking in its flavor – large lots, individually styled houses, the majestic greenbelt, theGen feel of Prmrs_64004 _ 7.5 x 5 -and Rdns Adsomeplace #1594 quiet, warm and friendly.

Lakeway Forced Annexation- (Continued from Page 6) with more modern features and amenities in other neighborhoods with a more unified look and more distinguishing landscaping, but we never really considered any other option after seeing the house that was for sale in Travis Oak Trails. Like a number of other older homes in Travis Oak Trails, our house was unconventionally built by its original owner and is a bit “quirky” in some respects. After we moved in, we continued this trend by putting up a country-style wire fence and created a jewelry studio out of the funky free-standing garage. Although there are a number of ways we could improve our home (if money was no option), friends and family always remark about the “good feeling” of our house and its surrounding neighborhood. Of course, it’s more than the house – We feel incredibly fortunate to have warm and supportive relationships with so many of the neighbors who also call Travis Oak Trails “home”: We pet-sit and house-watch for each other. Fellow musicians gather on front porches to jam. Dog-walkers meet and greet on the tar-surfaced streets and ones that have no pavement at all. We have pot lucks and call on each other when we need a hand. Without a doubt there is a unique culture which has evolved from the nature of this neighborhood that is rare and of exceptional value to its residents. The possible annexation into the City of Lakeway could, and probably would, destroy much of that. And then there are matters that are more concrete in nature that the possibility of annexation suggests. It would be a huge financial burden to make repairs and/ or modifications to our house according to the stricter building codes of Lakeway. I can’t imagine replacing our metal roof, which “sings” in the rain, with one of a different material. The private counseling practice I dream of opening in a small separate office building next to the house would never come to pass. The extra taxes and additional added costs would most likely add up to having to sell our beloved home and settle somewhere else – without our cherished neighbor/friends and our peaceful view of the greenbelt. Several of our neighbors have also shared similar concerns. The thought of being annexed and losing our home is - to say the least -“unbelievably stressful”. The truth be told, it is actually quite frightening. I love calling Travis OakTrails “home” and wish to continue to do so for many years. I appreciate the positive connection I have had with Lakeway for the past 15 years, but being a permanent part of the city is not what I and the vast majority of my neighbors desire. I am satisfied with the services we receive from other entities (protection by the Travis County Sheriff, choice of waste services, etc.). I don’t want the view of the stars from my front porch to be obscured by a mandatory front porch light or be required to follow codes appropriate for and wanted by residents of Lakeway. Travis Oak Trails has a distinct lifestyle, as does the City of Lakeway. In my opinion, annexation would actually dilute the “real flavor” of both communities. Travis Oak Trails and Lakeway have co-existed successfully for nearly 50 years. I along with my neighbors would be most appreciative if you choose to support us and urge the Lakeway City Council to vote “no” regarding annexation of Travis Oak Trails.

Tree Roots, a Wine Glass, and a Dinner Plate This is the second in a series of guest articles.

In construction, as in life, if you don’t lay a solid foundation, everything else is more likely to be a problem. It’s no different for trees, whose roots form the basis for their health and structural soundness. But what control do we have over tree roots that we can’t even see because they grow so deep into the earth? A lot. Because, generally, they don’t. Much of the mistreatment of trees occurs because people don’t realize where the roots are located (or they do and think it doesn’t matter). Generally, most of a tree’s roots grow within the top foot or so of soil and take a horizontal path that extends well outside the tree’s canopy edge (the drip line). Obstructions, elevation changes, and other factors can influence this growth pattern, but knowing the natural character of root growth helps us make better decisions about what we do around trees. Structurally, a mature tree is a wonder of engineering. Its roots and stem (trunk) must support a canopy whose network of branching and foliage sways with the breezes and confronts even more wind force during storms. No wonder people think that roots must grow deep. Rather, as James Urban explains in Up By Roots: Healthy Soils and Trees in the Built Environment, a tree is a vertical cantilever

that “resists overturning by relying on the anchoring of the horizontal roots.” Where the trunk flares at the base, it packs on extra wood to form a “bracket” that resists the stresses of weight and force. It then divides into buttress roots to distribute that loading force. The area that flares and transitions into buttress roots is called the root crown or root collar. This part of the tree is extremely important to structural stability. Once underground, these roots taper quickly and transition to other types of roots that perform anchoring, storage, and absorbing functions. The absorbing roots hang out where there’s adequate air and moisture; that’s usually within the top twelve inches of soil. They are responsible for absorbing (Continued on Page 9)

TREES: The Logical but Harmful- (Continued from Page 8) water and essential elements that the tree needs. Picture a wine glass on a dinner plate. This classic model represents root growth of a tree allowed to grow in an open space. The glass’s bowl is the tree canopy, its base the root crown, and the dinner plate the root system. Keep it in mind, because the root crown and root system will come up over and over again as we explore other issues that impact proper tree care. So does a great root system just happen? Nope. But before we look at how to encourage one from the start, in the next article, we’ll get better acquainted with the root crown. Then planting issues will make more sense.

Around Lakeway

"Paws & Claws At Flintrock Falls"

Benefit Set For October 10th Area animals will find hope thanks to an October 10th luncheon and fashion show at Flintrock Falls Country Club. Dubbed "Paws and Claws at Flintrock Falls," the event offers lunch, entertainment, prizes, and a fashion show featuring top new styles from Nordstrom. Proceeds benefit Friends of Mrs. P, a local pet charity founded by Lakeway resident Gretchen Pachlhofer. Other sponsors include John Paul Pet, Transformation Salon, Mrs. P’s Pet Sitting, Inc., Terrell Veterinary Clinic and other prominent businesses. “Friends of Mrs. P isn’t a typical rescue organization. Our main focus is financial aid for all animals in need – especially those who need special veterinary care,” said Pachlhofer. "We'll be helping animals and having great fun at the same time," said Grace Watson, owner of Lakeway's Transformation Salon. Watson is helping organize Paws & Claws. "People will see some amazing hair, make-up and fashions. Our partnerships with Paul Mitchell and Nordstrom mean this will be a top-notch show." Tarrance Smith, department manager at the Barton Creek Mall Nordstrom location, agrees. "We're excited to be part of Paws & Claws at Flintrock Falls," he observed in a recent interview. "Everyone at Nordstrom loves animals. I can't wait to introduce Lakeway's pet community to Nordstrom's fresh, new styles. It's a great opportunity for everyone." Tickets are priced at $75 and will be available starting September 1, 2001 at Transformation Salon and other select locations. "The room only holds 150 people, so that's how many tickets are available. If you want to be a part of this extraordinary event, grab your tickets now," said Pachlhofer. Sponsorship opportunities for local businesses are still open.

ONE TIME DEAL!

$11,254.00 for a 33 Month Membership to Freedom Boat Club One of our long time members has been forced to move out of state for work. He has been a great member so I'm helping him sell his membership. When he purchased this membership we sold long term transferable memberships at discounted rate. If you are thinking about joining the club you will never find a better rate. We only have 1 membership for sale at this rate and once it's gone, it's gone forever.
