The Lower Colorado River Authority and its wholesale electric customers recently awarded $470,630 in grants for community projects in the LCRA wholesale electric and water service areas.

The Community Development Partnership Program grants helped fund 22 projects, ranging from building a live-fire training tower in Burnet to constructing an emergency helipad in Fayetteville to installing a lightning detector at a Schulenburg sports complex. The grants also supplied much-needed emergency equipment to firefighters and other first responders in a number of communities.

Hill Country Naturalist

Last week I wrote about some Hill Country native trees and shrubs that are not rare, but certainly not common. In the process of writing I realized there were more trees and shrubs in that category than I thought, so here are several more.

• Bigtooth maple (Acer grandidentatum) is the famous tree of Lost Maples State Park. It also grows in parts of Big Bend National Park as well as in deep canyons of Bandera, Kerr, Kendall, Real and Uvalde counties. It is characterized by leaves that are 2 to 3 inches long and wide with three lobes and entire margins. In the fall these trees turn spectacular shades of yellow orange and red. They have been successfully cultivated in many parts of the state.

The Oliver family gathered at Harmony Ridge on Sunday, June 9, 2019 for their annual reunion. The area was settled in the mid-1870s by Andrew, Mark and Polk Oliver.

For part of the morning devotional, Reunion President Jarrett Oliver read entries from Alexander Oliver's dairy written from August 9, 1864 to August 9, 1867. During this time, Alexander's family had many struggles but he put his trust in God and was always thankful for God's protection and care.
