County Judge’s Update

I am glad to report that I successfully pled our case before the Texas Jail Standards Commission, and we have been granted a two-week period to repair the latest finding, which threatened to close our jail: The availability of hot and cold running water in the cells presently being used as a ‘holding facility.’ The repairs should be completed by the time you are reading this. We continue working towards mutually beneficial interlocal agreements with a couple of our adjoining counties to establish a more convenient arrangement for the housing of our prisoners until the right permanent and cost-effective regional solution can be achieved.

San Saba native returns with Pop-Up-Studio

During January 26th-27th, WTL Photos (Winston Tyler Lackey) debuted his traveling Pop-Up-Studio at San Saba High School. Open to the public, the offer included onehour on set with the creative photography of WTL.

When asked how he came up with the idea of a Pop-Up-Studio, Lackey responded that “Some of my fondest memories as a child were when photographers would travel to my little hometown and set up a portrait studio. It became part of my inspiration as a young photographer. Since my debut in January was such a success, I wanted to give more people the opportunity to have professional portraits made at an affordable price, and without having to travel far from home. I am excited and humbled to continue to offer my services to the residents of San Saba and the surrounding communities.”
