Author Monte Akers to Speak At Bee Cave Public Library

Author Monte Akers will appear at Bee Cave Public Library on December 8th at 7 p.m. for a book signing and discussion. Recently featured at the 2011 Texas Book Festival, Akers is the author of The Accidental Historian: Tales of Trash and Treasure, in which he shares his fascination with American history and its artifacts. He talks about joyous encounters with genuine treasures, like a cap insignia worn by commanding officers in the Battle of Little Big Horn, and trash like the “rare” Confederate belt plate he purchased from a dealer who (unbeknownst to him) had a reputation for “chicanery and fraud.” Told with scholarly insight and genuine schoolboy excitement, The Accidental Historian is a dynamic read for anyone who loves history or has ever had a passion of their own, and is available at the Bee Cave library. Akers is also well-known for his riveting account of the horrifying events that took place in 1922 in Kirven, Texas. Flames after Midnight: Murder, Vengeance, and the Desolation of a Texas Community tells the true story of a young white woman’s brutal murder and the burning alive of three black men who were almost certainly innocent of it. Writing nonfiction with the skill of a novelist, Akers paints a vivid portrait of a community desolated by racial hatred and its own refusal to face hard truths. He sets this tragedy within the story of a region prospering from an oil boom but plagued

by lawlessness, and traces the lynching’s repercussions down the decades to the present day. Akers has also written Tales for the Telling: Six Short Stories of the American Civil War. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington and the University of Houston, and practices law in Austin. The event will take place in the Council Chambers at Bee Cave City Hall in the Hill Country Galleria. The public is invited to attend this free event that promises to be entertaining and thought-provoking. LIBRARY HOURS: Bee Cave Public Library is open Tuesday-Thursday 10 am to 7 pm, Friday 10 am to 5 pm, and Saturday 1 pm to 5 pm. The library is closed on Sunday and Monday. HOLIDAY HOURS: Bee Cave Public Library will close at 5 pm on Thursday, Dec. 22, and will reopen at 10 am on Tuesday Dec. 27. The library will close at 5 pm on Friday, Dec. 30 and will reopen at 10 am on Tuesday, Jan. 3. For more information, visit the library website at http://pl.beecavetexas.gov or call 512-767-6620

Bee Cave Public Library Receives Five-Star National Rating Again

LIBRARY HISTORY

FIVE-STAR RANKING

For the second year in a row, our own Bee Cave Public Library has received a five-star rating in Library Journal’s national rating of public libraries, the LJ Index of Public Library Service 2011. Five stars is the highest rating that a library can receive. Only 85 libraries across the country received the five star rating, which is based on the annual number of library visits, circulation, program attendance, and public Internet computer use. “We are so honored to be recognized again as a Star Library by Library Journal,” said Library Director Barbara Hathaway. The LJ Star Index analyzed 7,513 public libraries throughout the country, separated them by budget, and assigned 3, 4, or 5 stars to 262 libraries. For the second year in a row, Bee Cave Public received 5 stars, placing

In its six years of operation, the Bee Cave Public Library has grown from a donated collection of books housed in a portable building adjacent to the old administration building to a collection of 30,000 volumes housed in a 5,000 square-foot library at City Hall in the beautiful Hill Country Galleria in the heart of Bee Cave. As the library’s collection has grown, its membership has soared to nearly 14,000 cardholders. The library recorded 67,000 annual visits last year, and circulated nearly 160,000 items. Bee Cave Public Library offers a wide range of resources for all ages and in all formats, to meet the needs of its learning-focused community. “We recently added digital content to our collection, and are now

it among the best in the nation. “In fact,” Hathaway added, “we ranked second in the nation in our budget category. Because this index compares libraries operating with comparable resources, it is a tribute to our hard-working staff who take great pride in their work and strive to deliver outstanding library service to our community.”

offering downloadable books and audiobooks to our patrons for reading or listening on a computer or mobile device like a smart phone, tablet, or e-reader. It is exciting to be able to offer cuttingedge technology to our tech-savvy patrons,” commented Hathaway. PROGRAMMING FOR ALL AGES Regular weekly programs include multiple sessions of storytime for preschoolers and toddlers that have developed a wide and loyal following. During the summers, Bee Cave Public Library offers reading programs for school-aged children that feature unique incentives to encourage reading. The library’s practice of hanging a “personalized poster” of each child who completes the program on the library wall throughout the summer was featured at the Texas Library Association annual conference as an example of an inexpensive but innovative practice that can be emulated by other libraries. “The kids get so excited to see their photos on the wall with their friends or siblings, that it motivates them to read enough minutes to get their picture taken for a poster,” said Hathaway. “Our first summer reading program in 2006 served about 100 children; by 2011, we reached more than a thousand kids with book clubs, craft days, performances, and other activities designed to get them excited about reading.” Other programs include book clubs, summer reading programs for teens and adults, author events, and family activities like the annual celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday which was attended by more than 500 people this year. The library also cooperates with neighboring libraries in Lake Travis and Spicewood to offer Lake Travis Reads, an annual “One Book, One Community” program designed to foster reading and discussion of a single book or author by the entire community. LIBRARY’S MISSION In founding the library, the City Council established its mission to provide intellectual, cultural, educational, and recreational resources in a variety of formats, and to offer an inviting environment, promote lifelong learning, and foster a sense of community. “We are very fortunate to live in a community whose leaders value libraries and education, and have made the Bee Cave Public Library a true community center whose resources and services are available to all,” concluded Hathaway. “Thank you to everyone involved who helped to make us your five-star library.” Bee Cave Public Library is located on the ground floor of Bee Cave City Hall, in the Hill Country Galleria, at the intersection of Highway 71, Ranch Road 620 and Bee Cave Road (FM 2244). For more information, visit the library website at http://pl.beecavetexas. gov or call 512-767-6620. For more information about “America’s Star Libraries” visit www.libraryjournal.com.

Lake Travis Toastmasters Club

On November first, the Lake Travis Toastmasters (LTTM) had a conjoined meeting with Dripping Springs Toastmasters for an Open House and 10th year celebration. It was a fun evening of speeches, great food and meeting new friends. There was a large turnout with 31 people that included 4 guests from other Toastmaster clubs and 8 visitors. The Dripping Springs club came in full force to participate and support all the evening’s presenters. The theme was “Dare to Communicate, Dare to Lead.” Our Toastmaster for the evening invited our guests to join Toastmasters using the three date test -- come to three meetings so you can see why LTTM is the club for you. Which of course we are!!! One speaker shared challenges he faced in his life, and the other his passion for sailing. Table Topics is always an entertaining quick round of opinions to enhance our theme for the evening with challenging thoughts on communication and leadership.

Voters Approve $158.5 Million Bond Referendum

With all Travis County results counted, Lake Travis Independent School District (LTISD) voters approved a $158.5 million bond referendum that will fund the addition and expansion of school buildings; maintenance and repair of District facilities; and purchase of instructional resources, including technology. According to Travis County elections officials, a total of 6,334 ballots were cast in the school bond election—57.77 percent ‘For’ and 42.23 percent ‘Against.’ The 2011 bond is LTISD’s largest issue to date. Since 2004, Lake Travis voters have approved more than $321.5 million in school bonds. “Approval of this bond was critical to the long-term vitality of our exemplary Lake Travis community,” said Jason Buddin, LTISD Board President. “We thank the members of our citizens’ bond advisory committee for their due diligence and commitment to this referendum, and ultimately, we applaud our voters whose support clearly indicates this was indeed the right-sized bond at the right time.” As a result of the approved referendum, the estimated tax increase will be $0.0924 for a total tax rate of $1.4083 per $100 of assessed property valuation. After state and local exemptions, passage of the bond election will represent an increase of approximately $281.88

annually—or $23.49 monthly—for the average LTISD homeowner. The 2011-2012 anticipated average market value of a residence in Lake Travis ISD is approximately $400,000. Residents who have received an ‘Over-65 Exemption’ or ‘freeze’ from the Travis County Appraisal District will incur no tax impact. In a unanimous 7-0 vote, the LTISD Board of Trustees approved an order calling for the election nearly six months ago upon recommendation by a 27-member citizens’ advisory committee. The 2011 bond program components include construction of a new elementary school and new Lake Travis Middle School; the expansion of Lake Travis High School into the current Lake Travis Middle School campus; the expansion of Hudson Bend Middle School; upgrades for existing facilities; and district-wide improvements. “This bond will allow us to accommodate the continued increase in student enrollment in our district,” said Susan Bohn, LITSD Interim Superintendent. “We are committed to ensuring that the projects in the bond are well-built and completed in a timely and fiscally responsible manner.” Election results are unofficial until canvassed.

Board Names Superintendent Finalist

In a unanimous 7-0 vote, the Lake Travis Independent School District (LTISD) Board of Trustees named Brad Lancaster, Ed.D. as sole finalist in its search for a permanent superintendent. The action was taken at a special called Board meeting held Wednesday, November 9 at the District’s Educational Development Center. Dr. Lancaster presently serves as s u p e r i n t e n d e n t o f t h e Mi d w a y Independent School District (MISD). The District is comprised of the municipalities of Hewitt and Woodway; portions of Waco, Crawford, Lorena, McGregor, and Robinson; as well as unincorporated McLennan County in Central Texas. During Dr. Lancaster’s tenure at MISD, the District’s enrollment grew by 18 percent, from 6,087 students to 7,158 students. The 2008 voterapproved bond of $75.8 million responded to the increase in enrollment by adding 298,448 square feet in district facilities, including two new schools. Dr. Lancaster is credited with bringing MISD from a Texas Education Agency (TEA) Acceptable rating to Recognized—falling short only three points from Exemplary in 2010. Additionally, Midway garnered state championships in volleyball (2007-08), girls’ basketball (2008-09) and softball (2009-10), as well as state gold medals in tennis (2010 and 2011), swimming (2010 and 2011), and track and field (2011). Collectively, the District’s successful academic, fine arts and athletics programs have placed Midway High School

in the UIL’s Lone Star Cup top 10 schools in Texas for four straight years, placing second twice. MISD was also recognized as one of six state finalists for the HEB Excellence in Education Awards earlier this spring. A former teacher, assistant principal, principal, executive director for curriculum, and assistant superintendent in the College Station, Ennis, and Allen school districts, Dr. Lancaster earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education from Baylor University as well as Master of Science in Educational Administration and Doctorate of Education degrees from Texas A&M University in College Station. He currently serves on the TEA Commissioner’s Cabinet of Superintendents, the Fast Growth Schools Coalition, and the Texas Association of School Administrators’ Legislative Services Committee, among others. Dr. Lancaster and his wife Karen have two children, Julia and Will. Texas law requires the Board to allow at least 21 days between the time a finalist is announced and an employment contract is offered and accepted. Susan Bohn has served as Interim Superintendent upon the resignation of Dr. Rocky Kirk in early July. Since that time, the firm of School Executive Consulting, Inc. has assisted the LTISD Board with an exhaustive search for a permanent superintendent.
