"...The search for Mandy, identified in the caption accompanying her visage as "Eula Amelia (Caldwell) Nagle's Mammy," began in a folder of Nagle family photographs and two shallow gray file boxes, each overflowing with the remnants of the Joseph A. Nagle and John Caldwell family estates..."
"...In January, after witnessing what she considered a particularly abusive "therapeutic" episode, an inmate named Jodi Stodder-Caldwell (who had landed a six-month stint in an SAFPF after a complicated dispute with the parole bureaucracy and is now a resident in a College Station halfway house) decided she could sit silently no more. She persuaded more than a dozen others to join her in sending to Howard their personal accounts of the SAFPF practices..."
"...45: the rolling hills of Hays Co. (Rose's home base), the flat prairies of Caldwell Co., and the rugged splendor of Blanco Co., otherwise known as "LBJ Country." In recent years, the district had become increasingly Republican territory...."
"...In January, then-inmate Jodi Stodder-Caldwell persuaded others at the TDJC's Ellen Halbert Unit in Burnet County to record their SAFPF experiences in letters submitted to Austin lawyer Derek Howard, who's considering legal action. According to numerous inmate narratives from Halbert and other units, the SAFPF program – in theory a substance-abuse treatment alternative to hard prison time – instead relies heavily on dubious forms of psychological and physical abuse..."
"... John Ford's Southern comedy, Tobacco Road, was made in between two of his masterpieces, The Grapes of Wrath and How Green Was My Valley. The screenplay was adapted by Nunnally Johnson from the stage play by Jack Kirkland, which was adapted from Erskine Caldwell's popular novel about low-rent lowlifes..."
"...Nothing can get built -- at least not with the federal funds essential to any major transportation project -- unless CAMPO gives its approval. As the population of the Austin metro area -- which officially contains all of those three counties plus Bastrop and Caldwell -- has bulged and seeped farther into the surrounding Hill Country, many public officials have suggested CAMPO expand that planning area to match..."
"...In early 2008, Jodi Stodder-Caldwell, an inmate at the Ellen Halbert SAFPF unit in Burnet County, contacted Austin attorney Derek Howard to explore the prospect of filing a civil rights lawsuit. For several months, she and other inmates, from Halbert and other units, sent graphic narratives chronicling alleged physical and psychological abuses occurring in state SAFPF units..."

"...Chef James Caldwell has been the resident kitchen talent for the past decade. Another Austin native, Caldwell learned to cook from his mother, and he's been cooking professionally since 1966, including 15 years at Chez Fred/Chez Zee..."
"...Acevedo's initial priority – the one about the need to "handle a complaint the way that it's required by policy" – saw its first case study in early October when the chief handed down suspensions to two supervisors of a Downtown officer, Cameron Caldwell, who was suspended over the summer for a March 17 incident in which he pepper-sprayed a 25-year-old black man who had already been arrested and was at the time detained in the back of a prisoner transport van, readying a trip to central booking. Caldwell's sergeant, Scott Stanfield, received a 30-day suspension and one-rank demotion to corporal/detective after an IA investigation concluded that he'd "failed to complete a thorough review" of Caldwell's use of force..."
"...Things are so torpid down in Caldwell County that nobody, in either party, filed for either the district attorney or county attorney race. The two big contests are for Precinct 1 commissioner (the eastern edge of the county, out by Dale and Prairie Lea), where 11-year veteran Morris Alexander has three Democratic primary challengers, and for sheriff, where 14-year incumbent Mike Bading has four Dem opponents..."
"..."We try not to be sensational, period," said Natasha Allen, who covers Hays and Caldwell counties out of an office in San Marcos. "They want stories to be something that really affects you."..."
"...Metro Austin's official transportation plan, produced by the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, only covers Travis, Northern Hays, and Southern Williamson Counties. Yet the official Austin metro area covers all of those three counties plus Bastrop and Caldwell, incorporating points as distant as Florence, Granger, Elgin, Smithville, Luling, Wimberley, Spicewood, Lago Vista, and Liberty Hill..."

"...Afoot in a Field of Men is quietly back, republished again by Slough Press in close to its original format, at a time when Littledog, now 74, finds peace about 20 miles from Austin in a rural, mud-caked, 10-acre corner of Caldwell County that has become a family compound, with one house apiece for Littledog, her two sons, and one daughter. "I never lived in one place for very long," she says from her manufactured home with Sandra Cisneros poems taped to its kitchen cabinets..."
