For a string of summer weeks starting four years ago, Dana Wright and Darrell Staedtler met once a week in a small music studio on the north side of the Llano River.
Staedtler, wearing his standard baseball cap as he sat in a large, swallowing, mustard yellow wingback chair, and Wright, sitting on a tiny piano bench, talked country music and life as the old songwriter told stories about luminaries such as George Strait, Patsy Cline and other famous stars.
Anyone who needs just a little bit of help with back to school shopping may turn to the Llano ISD Clothes Closet.
The Clothes Closet has clothes for all ages, from toddler to adult, and it is free for anyone to “shop.” It will be open 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, July 25, and 3-6 p.m.
As the fireworks exploded high in the sky late on July 4, Holly Gilmore of Fredonia was somewhat panicked.
Her 20-year old quarter horse, Chapa, was choking, and she struggled to get in touch with a veterinarian as the skies turned increasingly dark on the holiday night.
Gilmore’s normal veterinarian was out of town on vacation.
Over the course of five months, some in cool weather and some in very hot weather, members of the Llano Alliance for Drug Intervention (LADI) worked the concession stand at the John L. Kuykendall Arena and Event Center.
Each time they worked there was cleaning to do to make the area appropriate for serving food and drinks.
You’ll be excused if keeping up with the coaching changes in Llano is a bit difficult. My paperwork looks like a baseball scorebook when a 12-12 game is in the 15th inning.
So, no surprise that the latest move involves someone who came here for one job and then got one that wasn’t expected.
The Lady Jackets, it appears, are lucky he was available to raise his hand and be seen.
