In case you’ve been wondering what the raised plaques are that have popped up around the public library recently, you’ll be glad to hear that they are a new project that Director Allison Shimek has been working on for nearly two years. After many changes, lots of planning and plenty of things taken into consideration, the grand opening of the StoryWalk that leads from the library to the gazebo, featuring the book, “How Rocket Learned to Read,” was held at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday morning, November 17.

The concept of a StoryWalk began at a library in Vermont, and Shimek has been doing lots of research on StoryWalks located across the country since she learned about them. Most of them are temporary, and are stuck in the ground and removed after a couple of weeks. However, Shimek created a version that is a little more permanent, which can have different stories swapped out from the plaques.

Janecka: Folks are coming in here dividing land, and it’s not a positive thing
It was one land development too many at Tuesday’s Fayette County Commissioners Court meeting. Outgoing County Judge Ed Janecka, a vocal critic of rural land fragmentation, gave an earful to an Austin-area developer with plans to build retail and office space in an empty hay patch south of Round Top.

“Does it have to be? Couldn’t there be a piece of property that you don’t have to develop?” Janecka told the developer at the meeting on Nov. 12.

The developer, Lee McIntosh of Georgetown, was at the meeting to present plans for the commercial development.

Lehmann Speaks Publicly for First Time Since Being Shot
Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputy Calvin “C.J.” Lehmann returned to the Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, Nov. 14, less than two weeks after he received a shotgun blast to the face while attempting to arrest a wanted felon.

“You can’t keep me down,” Lehmann said in an interview with reporters.

Doctors removed his left eye and prepared the socket for a prosthetic. He cannot yet see out of his right eye, although he can detect some light.

“It’s unclear whether I’ll get vision back in it,” Lehmann said.
