Dear #FIRST_NAME#Friends#: (trouble reading this? click here, comment and share)

Our next call is THIS Sunday at 6 pm. Reply for the new conference call line.

Yesterday, we delivered these comments to the Texas Water Development Board at a hearing on new rules  for resolution of regional water conflicts. Beware: the Governor-appointed TWDB may be under political pressure to establish rules that favor the "California plan" of mass movement of water to new developments in dry areas. Starting at about the 8-minute mark, you'll see some moving testimony from landowners who came from NE Texas, Region D, who are fighting the Marvin Nichols Reservoir -- video here. You can submit your own comments before the deadline on August 4th by 5 pm OR, you can wait to see our full comments coming to you before the Aug. 4th deadline.

Send comments here: rulescomments@twdb.texas.gov with the subject line simply as: Rules Comments.

Here's what else you can do:

Join our sign campaign and get an “I oppose the San Antone hose” yard sign (18" x 24" with bracket). They're free with a $10 membership. OR IF WE GET AT LEAST 100 ORDERS, you can get a 4' x 4' sign for $25 or a 4' by 8' sign for $50.

Here's where you can order signs. Note: please follow the instructions on this page carefully, so we know what you're asking for or just call us.

Join an online forum about this, or start your own, on Yannect.com.

Here's what else is happening:

NEXT WEEK! July 30-Aug. 1, 6 to 9 pm: Visit us or volunteer at our booth at the Bastrop Rodeo.

The FARFA 9th Annual Farm & Food Leadership Conference, Sept. 25-26, Bryan-College Station. League Board member, Michele Gangnes, will be speaking on the water panel. Note:  FARFA also has a part-time position open!

Hope to "see" ya on Sunday's call -- reply for the new conference line.

Independently yours,
