Give Them Hell, Bill!
Postmarks  April 27, 2006
"...Dear Editor The Chronicle became my window on Austin after my wife and I moved from Falls Church, Va., to Hays County in 1999. I came to trust your reporting and then your judgment because I believed "you got it." Having grown up on a Dallas County farm during the Forties and Fifties drought, my memories of Austin were certainly idyllic of when it was a "sleepy college town." Sometimes SOS Bill Bunch is his own worst enemy, but I shudder to think what Austin would be like today without this unique organization and its single-minded focus on protecting all aspects of Barton Springs. Recent "Page Two" comments by Louis Black [April 7], and Michael King's "Point Austin" [April 21], bring to mind how "Establishment" the Chronicle has become in just six years when it comes to Barton Springs and what it takes to preserve that Edwards Aquifer canary. Isn't anyone at the Chronicle listening anymore? Twelve thousand plus citizens created an Envision Central Texas paradigm that includes preserving the Aquifer, its watershed, and a lot more of what we need to retain that special quality of life that attracts so many of us..."

Within that context, community and environmental participants would like to promote a primarily eastward growth trend, relatively limited density on the western front, and stricter water quality measures – all intended to ensure the longevity of the Hill Country landscape, its network of lakes and creeks, and, of course, Barton Springs..."

Grassroots homesteaders tighten ranks to fight urban encroachment
News Story  June 27, 2008, by Greg Harman
"...The mobilization of what might best be called the "Hill Country Militia" is an event with water at its heart – the protection of local creeks, streams, and wells, to be sure, but also the extremely vulnerable Edwards Aquifer.
