Hello (e-News);
This little girl came to my place last night, May 28, 2009, and I am looking for her owners.  I hope she will be claimed because I can't keep this one. 
She is very sweet and stays in a kennel without any fuss.  She didn't cry or whine last night.  Would you please send this to those on your email list? 
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Protect Lake Travis Assoc Annual Meeting June 27th

[Editor's Note: Water Quality and Water Quantity. Both are topics of interest to Volente residents. And both subjects are being covered at the June 27th PLTA general membership meeting (below). Our readers should be aware that some developers and utility districts are suggesting that they be allowed to discharge effluent from wastewater treatment plants directly into Lake Travis (such discharges are currently banned, thanks in part to the past efforts of PLTA). LCRA undertook a study to see what some of the effects of such discharges would be and will discuss the results of this study at the meeting. PLTA believes sending clean water outside the basin to BCRUA and others and "replacing" it with so-called "treated" sewage is a very bad idea. You are encouraged to attend the meeting on June 27th to hear the presentations and ask questions.]

The Protect Lake Travis Association will hold its annual meeting on Saturday, June 27, 2009 in the Town Hall Room of the Travis County West Service Center at 4501 FM 620N  just south of the Mansfield Dam.  The meeting will start at 2:00 P.M.
Featured speakers will be Lisa Hatzenbuehler, LCRA's Manager of Water Resource Protection, who will speak about the newly completed computer modeling study and how Lake Travis water quality would be affected if wastewater discharge were allowed into the lake, and Mark Jordan, LCRA's Manager of River Management Services who will speak about anticipated Lake levels and the status of available water for people in the Colorado River basin. The public is invited.
