Oak Ridge community celebrates 50 years


Servers from the Oak Ridge BBQ in 2016 are, from left, Mickey Collins, Jeannie Minnick, Tom Graham, Susan Anderson. The neighbors will be on the serving line again April 1 at the second annual event.

The 2nd Annual Oak Ridge Estates BBQ, Music Fest & Silent Auction Fund Raiser will get underway at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 1. The first fundraiser of the community met with so much success it has been adopted as an annual event. This year it is a celebration of its 50th birthday. The history of the community that is now part of Horseshoe Bay, dating back 180 years was a small part of the celebration in 2016. Now it is 181 years since the property was gifted by the State of Texas to a Texian Army veteran, Benjamin Phillips (1936). Eventually the land was purchased from direct decedents by Polk and Houston in the late 50s and early 60s. Four of the original

lake homes in the Oak Ridge Subdivision were completed by 1967, turning the development into actual neighborhood that is proclaiming itself 50 years old this year. Owners say they will strive to maintain the visions of warmth and beauty of those two early property owners in today’s little neighborhood. Funds raised by the celebration will continue to be dedicated the Oak Ridge Property Owners Association for the beautification and maintenance of Oak Ridge Estates. Live entertainment will be provided by Tom Chick, a local folk art singer with original music and lyrics. Food will include barbecued brisket, sausage, potato salad, beans and rolls, along with beverages and cobbler for

dessert. By popular demand, this year, brisket will be sold sliced by the pound, while supplies lasts. In addition to the barbecue dinner, the silent auction consists of some special items, including a pair of spurs; court-side tickets for the April 2 game against Utah along with a meal at Boudro’s on the Riverwalk and beverages at Zinc; four days at a condo on South Padre, a large King Ranch briefcase and several quality art items. Bidders do not have to be a present to win. It will take place at the Oak Ridge Community Center in Horseshoe Bay, found by exiting Farm to Market Road 2147 onto Ferguson Road at the 7-11 convenience store and taking the second left to follow the signs.

As we head into spring and what traditionally is the wettest time of year in the Hill Country, the Lower Colorado River Authority encourages everyone who may be affected by flooding along the Highland Lakes or lower Colorado River to sign up for free notifications of LCRA flood operations. LCRA’s Flood Operations Notification Service (LCRA FONS) will call, text and/or email subscribers when flood operations begin at dams along the Highland Lakes or at Bastrop Dam in Bastrop County. “The Highland Lakes sit in the middle of Flash Flood Alley, and flooding along the lakes and lower Colorado River can occur without much advance notice,� said John Hofmann, LCRA executive

vice president of water. “We’re blessed to have full lakes this spring, and rain in the watershed could prompt us to move to flood operations very quickly. We encourage everyone to be prepared for the possibility of flooding, and to subscribe to LCRA FONS to help stay aware of changing conditions along the Highland Lakes and lower Colorado River.� The LCRA FONS system will be activated when flood operations are imminent or underway at Buchanan, Inks, Wirtz, Starcke, Mansfield, Tom Miller or Bastrop dams. Inks Dam does not have floodgates and is designed for floodwaters to pass over its spillway; LCRA FONS is activated for Inks Dam when water flows continuously

over the designated spillway. LCRA FONS is not a flood warning system. When flood operations begin at the dams, flows downstream will be higher and swifter, and anyone nearby should exercise caution and take measures to protect people and property. To register for LCRA FONS, complete the online registration form at lcra. org/FONS or call LCRA at 512-578-3246. The online registration takes about two minutes. Subscriptions will remain valid through March 31, 2019. (All subscriptions in place as of March 31 have been extended through March 31, 2019.) For more information, visit

HCCAC hosts Purse Bingo, plans open house By Glynis Crawford Smith The Highlander.

When Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center throws it’s doors wide for an open house April 11, it will be with all smiling because the operation received some $70,000 in support at the Designer Purse Bingo event at Horseshoe Bay Resort Saturday.

About 800 ladies participated in lively bingo games for 20 designer purses and other prizes. They gave a warm welcome to Texa First Lady Cecelia Abbot and keynote speaker Becca Schafer. “Your purchase has a purpose today,” said Schafer. The open house will be going on at the center at 1001 North Hill Street in Burnet

from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. It will be a chance to enjoy barbecue with the staff and learn about their work to help child abuse victims in Blanco, Burnet, Llano, Mason, and San Saba counties. It is all part of Child Abuse Awareness Month and supporters are encouraged to recognize the cause by wearing blue each Friday in April.

From Page 1

The city has allowed Joseph’s Pantry to operate out of the building that served as a community center for property owners, before the days of incorporation. The pool house in Park No. 1 on Phillips Ranch Road has served, despite structural problems, as a community center. That, council members told the citizens, has been remarkably improved and refurbished inside and is rented at least three weekdays and every weekend. That rental situation was at the heart of a couple of other citizens, including one whose beading club just can’t afford rental. “We have to beg a room at a church, but we would like to come to a community center,” she said. Longtime resident Colleen

Kenyon remembered the days of the property owners community center when she asked, “What do you have for senior citizens? “At the old community center we could sit down and visit over a cup of coffee,” she said. “We could leave books we’d read there to share with others.”

Senate panel OKs budget for upcoming biennium AUSTIN — A state budget for fiscal years 2018-2019 cleared the first in a series of hurdles when the Senate Finance Committee unanimously approved committee substitute Senate Bill 1 on March 22. The legislation next moves to the full Senate for consideration. “This budget remains a work in progress, but we will continue our work to make the most of every dollar, meet our priority needs and keep Texas moving in the right direction,” said Senate Finance Committee Chair Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound. “This committee left no stone unturned looking for savings, examining our budget drivers and looking for ways to make smarter use of our limited resources.” Nelson said the bill establishes a $106.3 billion two-year state budget. Just a few things the measure would do, if enacted, are: - Continue the current funding formulas for public education; - Dedicate approximately $5 billion for transportation, as required by a recent amendment to the state constitution; - Provide $3.4 billion for Child Protective Services, an increase of

Capital Highlights

Ed Sterling Texas Press Association $430 million over current levels; - Add $2.65 billion to cover student enrollment growth, which is projected to be more than 80,000 per year over the next two years; - Maintain the $800 million earmarked for border security approved by the 2015 Legislature; - Provide a $780 million commitment for new construction and significant repairs to the state hospital system, plus $145 million for other critical life and safety capital needs at state hospitals and state supported living centers; - Add $316 million to mitigate a funding shortfall in the Teacher Retirement System; and - Increase funding for Medicaid to provide caseload growth at fiscal year 2018 levels. The Medicaid

budget assumes over $400 million in cost containment initiatives. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who presides over the Senate, commended Nelson and her committee for passing the budget bill on a 15-0 bi-partisan vote. County tops ICE list The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on March 20 issued its first weekly U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Declined Detainer Outcome Report. The document was produced in accordance with President Donald Trump’s Jan. 25 executive order, which was titled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States.” Counties that are not cooperating with ICE detainer requests are named in the report, covering the week of Jan. 28 to Feb. 3. Travis County, Texas, tops the list with 142 declined detainer requests. Gov. Greg Abbott referred to the report as “deeply disturbing” and reiterated his short-list emergency item wish for the Texas Legislature to pass a ban on sanctuary cities. On Feb. 8, the Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 4, the sanctuary

cities measure, on vote of 20-10, with Republicans in favor and Democrats in opposition of the heavily amended legislation. On March 15, the House State Affairs Committee considered SB 4 in a public hearing in which amendments were considered and testimony was given but no vote was taken. The legislation, if passed by the House and signed into law by the governor, would require sheriff and police departments to detain undocumented arrestees or face criminal penalties and funding cuts. Franchise tax bill moves The full Senate on March 21 passed legislation to phase out the state franchise tax over time if sufficient revenue is available. SB 17 now moves to the House for further consideration. Sen. Jane Nelson, primary author of the bill, said, there is widespread support to eliminate the franchise tax, and that her bill “responsibly phases out the franchise tax while ensuring we retain the revenue necessary to meet the needs of our state.” SB 17 aims to reduce the franchise tax every biennium if the Texas comptroller certifies that the

state will experience at least 5 percent revenue growth. If that occurs, half of general revenue-related funds over the 5 percent growth would be dedicated to reducing the franchise tax rate. Fiscal challenges detailed Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar on March 21 announced the availability of a special edition of his office’s Fiscal Notes publication, highlighting long-term financial obligations facing Texas state government. Prior to the legislative session, Hegar sent a letter to lawmakers outlining some of these obligations. If left unaddressed, the obligations could negatively impact the state’s credit rating and limit the amount of revenue available for general spending. The report examines the funding of state employee pensions; TRS-Care, the program that provides health care coverage for retired public school employees and their dependents; the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan; and deferred maintenance projects for state buildings.

‘Granny tax’ bill puts nursing home residents at risk By Ron Jennette President & CEO Crestview/Arbor Oaks Methodist Retirement Communities

This year, I had the opportunity to witness first-hand Governor Greg Abbott’s State of the State Address. In listening to his vision, there were a number of commitments that stood out to all of us proud Texans. One particular statement I heard loud and clear was “…the only good tax is a dead tax,” which is why I was so surprised to learn legislation has been filed to tax a most vulnerable group of elderly residents residing in Texas nursing homes. During my 23 years in senior living, I have seen many attempts that avoid getting at the heart of the problem, which is adequately funding nursing homes for the cost of providing quality care and services to those in need. But that’s not a good reason for the misguided proposals that seem to find their way into the halls of the Texas Capitol. Labeled “the granny tax,” Senate Bill 1130 and House Bill 2766 would generate state revenue by taxing every nursing home

resident in the state. Nursing home residents who pay for their own care would now have to carry a tax bill of over $4,000 per year, pushing the private pay residents ever closer to becoming Medicaid recipients. Oh, the legislation does try and pretend the tax won’t be passed on to the resident; but that only adds a layer of absurdity to this proposal. Every organization must cover its costs to remain afloat. Recently working with its sole member, Methodist Retirement Communities (MRC), to redevelop for long-term viability in Bryan, Crestview/Arbor Oaks has proudly served residents of Bryan and College Station since the early 1960s. Having a stellar reputation for quality care and compassionate staff, Crestview is the only CMS 5-star rated community in that area. As a faith-based, non-profit that is committed to serving with integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence, MRC now has another senior living community under construction to serve the great people in this area. This new one is called The Langford, and is located next to

Christ United Methodist Church off Texas 6. Doors will open the first half of 2018. If Texas is going to treat our most vulnerable seniors with respect and dignity as we seek to do at Crestview, I believe our legislators need to support quality of care funding solutions that are shared rather than target those who are already frail and aging. In recent years, I have been very encouraged to hear our Senator Charles Schwertner speak to the importance of quality in nursing homes, and I applaud his dedication. It is unfortunate that some legislators would seek to threaten quality care by imposing yet another tax, this time on the most vulnerable in our society. Ron Jennette is the president and CEO of Crestview/Arb or Oaks and Methodist Retirement Communities, which are BryanCollege Station-based retirement communities with skilled nursing, assisted living and independent living facilities.

Spicewood residents pack meeting on Thomas Ranch

Bark at the Art patrons Jeannette Murphy, Alaine Hankey, Becky Widner and Suzanne Owens enjoy a moment together.

Thomas Ranch developer Thomas D’Alesandro IV and Burnet County Commissioner Joe Don Dockery listen as Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daughtery speaks.

0DUWKD 1RUZRRG 6SLFHZRRG 1HZV On Tuesday, March 21, several hundred people packed the Spicewood Elementary School cafeteria to hear the plans of an Austin developer, Thomas D’Alesandro IV. Twenty-two hundred acres of prime land sandwiched between Texas 71 and Paleface Ranch Road in Spicewood falls under a 20-year growth plan. The land parcel is called the Thomas Ranch. Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daughtery spoke to assure the crowd that his door is always open for questions and concerns. He has been working with the developer for two years to help bring this project to fruition. Daughtery explained that the format for the meeting was a group of posters located around the room. There are stations located around the room that should help answer questions. The crowd was encouraged to review the posters and ask questions. Burnet County Precinct 4 Commissioner Joe Don Dockery spoke next. Dockery assured the attendees that he is very concerned about water usage and will keep a close eye on the plans. He also offered to meet with anyone who might have concerns or questions. Marble Falls Area EMS director Johnny Campbell attended the meeting out of concern for being able to supply emergency services as needed. Commissioners for Burnet County Emergency Services District No. 9 who attended the meeting were Karen Bruett, Martha Norwood and Johnnie Bindseil. ESD 9 is currently working on plans to place a new EMS station at the Spicewood Elementary School. This station will help serve portions of the new development, while Travis County ESD 8 will serve the remainder. Travis County ESD 8 Fire Chief Gerry Deming and Burnet County ESD 9 Fire Chief Scott Hannusch both were in attendance. D’Alesandro explained some of the plans for the development. There are a number of water conservation methods to be included in the plan. A golf course, which was not mentioned in the beginning of some discussions, will now be included. As past president of the Woodlands Corporation in Houston, D’Alesandro is

proud of his development history. There are plans for 3,000 houses on the Spicewood property. The dense areas of homes will be located off Texas 71. Traveling up the hill from Texas 71, the homes will be less dense. There are retail areas planned close to Texas 71, and on the backside on Paleface Ranch Road. A multi-level hotel is also on the drawing board. Seven hundred acres are planned as park-type areas, including the golf course. With that figure, that means 3,000 houses will cover 1,400 acres. Walking trails and restaurants are also planned. Negotiations with Scott and White are in the works to install a clinic on the property. There are firm plans for this property to be a fire-wise community, as well as dedicated to the dark sky initiative. There are answers, plans, and drawings available online at www.thomasranchaustin. com. Bark at the Art! What an outstanding time we all had at Bark at the Art. For the third straight year, Marta Stafford opened her gallery to help raise funds for the Highland Lakes SPCA. It was great fun to see so many wonderful people open their hearts and pocketbooks to help rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome our wonderful dogs. With Marta’s help, the Highland Lakes SPCA was able to build an indoor kennel for our dogs. Becca Schafer and company catered the wonderful meal we all shared. Two of the regular volunteers at the shelter, Jeannette Murphy and Michaela Black, and their crew worked tirelessly to pull

off an amazing night. Many of Marta’s artists donated pieces to help the dogs, and some agreed to do portraits of the attendees’ dogs. At one point, bidding became so fierce for a work by Sandra Stevens that she offered to do two paintings. Thank you Sandra! If you have not been lucky enough to see Sandra’s work, you have really missed out. Marta’s gallery is full of distinguished artists’ works and they were certainly on parade this night. Beautiful jewelry was donated by Vicki McGowen of Spicewood, as were several other types of art and sculpture. Jeanne Gillen and husband donated the use of their personal vacation home in Costa Rica. Again, the bidding was so encouraging that Jeannie and her husband allowed two weeks of use and doubled the money raised for the pups. I can only assume everyone is looking forward to next year. As far as Marta, she has already made her commitment. Like she said, “I love doing this.” Guess what, Marta? We really, really love you, too! Highland Lakes SPCA plans new venue The Highland Lakes SPCA will take several of their adoptable dogs to the Ace Hardware in Horseshoe Bay. The first time this will take place is March 31 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come to the store and plan to pet, hold, and love the best dogs around. All dogs have all injections, a microchip for identification, are spayed or neutered, and ready for adoption. You can’t take a dog home that day, but you can make an appointment with the Highland Lakes

Soccer team wins bi-district in OT From staff reports

Marble Falls’ Gilder Vasquez scored with four minutes remaining in overtime to lift the Mustang to a 1-0 victory over Austin Lanier in their Class 5A bi-district soccer game Friday at Nelson Field. Cristian Ramirez had the assist. The Mustangs (19-1-6) will advance to play Richmond Foster in the area round. Richmond Foster, the first-place team in their district, defeated San Antonio Jefferson, 2-0, to advance in the playoffs. “We had many chances throughout the game but their goalie made some great saves,’’ Marble Falls coach Rick Hoover said. “Our goal was a great shot from our freshman Gilder Vasquez. It was a typical playoff game, both teams fighting to the end and neither team giving up.’’ The Mustangs are in the playoffs for the third time in school history and second time under coach Hoover.

Lady Stangs can’t match Drip By Mark Goodson Highlander Sports Editor

Marble Falls Mustang softball could only muster one hit against the Tigers from Dripping Springs in a losing 5-0 effort 5-0 Friday at Dripping Springs. “There are no moral victories in any sport but if there was, the Mustangs got one today.’’ Marble Falls coach Tim Richter said. “We beat them in every facet of the game except putting the bat on the ball. They only got six singles, but they put the ball in play and made us make a play and we just couldn’t seem to make them tonight. Routine plays that we have made all season, were not there.’’ Marble Falls pitcher Logan Hulon struck out 11 “but we couldn’t handle their speed.

They are very fast and very good’’ Richter said. Tincia Ware drew a walk in the top of the first inning and got to third on a single up the middle by Elicia Gonzales but that was all Marble Falls could come up with. “We got a little dose of our own medicine,’’ Richter said. “Hulon has a great rise ball and that is what their pitcher had tonight. We were swinging at balls at the moon and weren’t even coming close.’’ Taylor Dixon made an excellent play in center field in the bottom of the sixth inning. On a shallow fly ball to centerfield, Dixon charged hard and made an outstanding sliding catch. With the two losses to Lockhart, Mustang softball is 4-3 after the first round of district play. The Lady Mustangs open the second round on Tuesday at Alamo Heights.

Mustangs regroup for Lockhart at home on Tuesday Marble Falls baseball team gave up seven runs in the bottom of the fifth and lost, 7-5, to Seguin on the road Friday night. Marble Falls is 2-10 on the season and winless in district at 0-5. The boys are at home

against Lockhart Tuesday and on the road Friday at Dripping Springs. Marble Falls top hitter was Cooper Wilson with a pair of hits. He reached base four times in the game.

Fredericksburg Texas Tech University Higher Education Teaching Site at Fredericksburg 2818 E. US Highway 290, Fredericksburg, Texas April in Paris — “We’ll always have Paris,” Rick says to Ilsa in Casablanca, and generations of artists, writers, composers and dancers have felt exactly the same way. Some say it’s the history, and some say it’s the light — but we think it just might be the food. French cuisine has helped make and keep Paris at the center of Western civilization since the Middle Ages — first in palaces, then in restaurants, and finally right here in the Hill Country. Join host instructor John DeMers at the new Fischer & Wieser Culinary Adventure Cooking School in Fredericksburg for a delicious four-course exploration with wine of

everything that makes this cuisine unforgettable. Along the way, John will share the history of signature dishes, both in their original forms and as they evolved outward through time to French colonies in Africa, the Far East and the Caribbean, and finally to the entire world. John DeMers has made many trips to Paris and the rest of France. The highlight of his journalism career was spending a full day interviewing TV’s “French Chef” Julia Child

and her beloved husband Paul — talk about Paris being for lovers! Join us for a culinary adventure including the menu of sea scallops Provencal, wilted spinach salad with bacon vinaigrette, steak with red wine-mushroom sauce, and toasted cinnamon pear tarte tatin. Instructor: John DeMer, B.A. and M.A. in journalism. He is an author of many cookbooks. Currently he conducts cooking demonstrations for Fischer & Wieser at Das Peach Haus.

Date: April 19-20 Day: Wednesday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fee: $85 for OLLI members; $100 for non-members Location: Das Peach Haus, 1406 US-87, Fredericksburg, TX 78624 (not broadcast) Class limited to 20.
