Michele Gangnes' commentary in the Bastrop Advertiser edition of Saturday's Austin American-Statesman explains why you don't want to miss it. She warns:
►"When LCRA announced their deal with the Boy Scouts in 2015, they teased us with benevolent words — they pointed out the water is “well located” to help meet Bastrop County’s projected water needs. The potentially local project has now morphed into a full-blown export project. LCRA won’t say where the water will end up other than disappearing into LCRA’s huge water delivery system. The prevailing rumor is that the water will be piped to Austin to offset that city’s Highland Lakes demand."

Hope to see you tomorrow -- Tuesday, July 17 -- and do spread the word!
