Water Meetings in Giddings and Caldwell, y’all come

* Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District, 7 pm, Giddings City Hall, 188 Richmond Street. The LCRA keeps coming back — now for the third time! LCRA, a river authority that should be looking out for, protecting, and conserving OUR Colorado River, is turning it’s back on the river, the bay, and its rural customers and neighbors, to satisfy its self-serving desires and urban demands for water. Lost Pines GCD needs to know we’re there — for as long as it takes and as many times as it takes to protect our water.

Tillman Speaks Out for Local Control — how ’bout you?

On November 4, 2014, there was a historical vote in Denton, TX, which of course was when the residents voted to ban hydraulic fracturing within the corporate limits of the city. This is a bit shocking considering the political make up of this area and the amount of funding that the industry sunk into defeating this measure. Another interesting thing is the margin of victory for this measure, for all the money that was sunk into this election by the industry, they were not even close to victory.
