Local filmmaker has a few films to put in your Netflix qeue
DAILY Screens  August 16, 2009, by Andy Campbell
"...You may have heard that Kyle Henry, local big-shot filmmaker and editor, is in the middle of his next big production, a series of shorts examining the emotional components of sex that Western society considers transgressive. Called FOURPLAY the project has already been garnering some buzz from the likes of independent film blogs like IndieWire and from the Austin Chronicle (we've even sent staff members to extra for the project)..."

Sidewalk Fail!
PHOTO GALLERY  August 28, 2014
"...Transit advocate Lyndon Henry sent us this series of shots of Matthews Lane in South Austin, running parallel to William Cannon. There's only a sidewalk on the North side, but this is a busy road, with many pedestrians going to and from the #3 bus..."

Point Austin: From Frontage Road, Texas
Traffic jamming at the Urban Rail Town Hall
News Column  August 28, 2014, by Michael King
"...After apparently significant backstage pushback, the official panel suddenly included a wider range of viewpoints: rail opponents Jim Skaggs and Bill Oakey; Project Connect opponents Scott Morris (subbed Tuesday by Andrew Clements) and Lyndon Henry; and Project supporters Mar­tha Smiley of the Chamber of Commerce, CM Bill Spelman, and Thomas Butler of the Downtown Austin Alliance and Let's Go Austin. The result was a lively discussion, and though it was hard to tell if any minds were changed, by the end it was least possible to imagine progress on Smiley's injunction: "Whether you vote it up or down, you will at least understand what you're voting on." Best and Worst..."

A Great Big Bundle of Rail and Roads
Council moves transportation bonds toward a November vote
News Story  August 7, 2014, by Mac McCann
"...Not everyone agrees. Public transit advocates Scott Morris and Lyndon Henry, who strongly oppose this particular plan, issued a press release in late June denouncing how the LPA had been "hastily bundled with hundreds of millions of dollars of highway projects to increase support and private funding for the rail's planned political campaign." They said they "oppose combining an urban rail decision with unrelated highway infrastructure that would be otherwise unneeded with a good rail plan."..."

Project Connect Accelerates
As decisions near, controversy dogs urban rail plan
News Story  June 12, 2014, by Mac McCann and Michael King
"...Lonny Stern of the Alliance for Public Transportation is supportive of a bridge over Lady Bird Lake, which he would prefer over a more expensive and less adaptable tunnel that was being considered; however, he considers the proposed Hancock tunnel a poor and too expensive choice. Longtime rail advocate Lyndon Henry, who has adamantly opposed the choice of the Highland corridor, recently told KUT, "That Project Connect project is incredibly gold-plated..."

Point Austin: More Connected Than Thou
Multimodal objections to a multimodal project
News Column  August 7, 2014, by Michael King
"...Of late, opponents have accused the planning team of lying and unethical behavior, and of "promoting" the project instead of just describing it neutrally, and even of failing to repeat the opponents' arguments for them. This week, a couple of those opponents, Scott Morris and Lyndon Henry – representing yet more fleeting groupuscules – charged, in a lengthy press release, that Project Connect had surreptitiously and deceptively withdrawn from the Federal Transportation Administration process for environmental review, and the entire process will now be subject to a wasteful "Do Over."..."

The Little Engine That Did
Capital Metro rides the train out of the political doghouse
News Story  November 5, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"..."This is a really big deal," Capital Metro Chair Lee Walker noted, "because it's the first time our regional neighborhood has come together, on any issue" at the ballot box. "We should be proud to be part of this history-making effort." (Walker's Cap Metro board colleague, Council Member Daryl Slusher, gave more explicit props to Krusee, calling the rep "an honorable man" and dubbing the win "a true bipartisan effort." He also name-checked veteran rail advocates Lyndon Henry and Dave Dobbs, who've been fighting to bring transit to Austin for nearly all of the agency's 19-year history.)..."

Sidewalk Fails: Readers' Submissions
What's the worst sidewalk in Austin?
News Story  July 17, 2014
"...What's the worst sidewalk in Austin? We're looking for the most dangerous, badly designed, poorly maintained, or just plain baffling walking routes in Austin, and we need your help (see last week's cover story, "Where the Sidewalks End"). For example, local transportation advocate Lyndon Henry sent this example of the situation on Matthews Lane, running between Manchaca and South First, just south of William Cannon..."

Take the A-Train
Mike Clark-Madison discusses 10 years covering light rail, and urges voters to support it.
News Story  October 13, 2000, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...So, along with the transit triathletes who've been at this from Day One (people like Lyndon Henry and Dave Dobbs), I am now an increasingly dusty piece of the transportation furniture. And if light rail wins, I could remain planted in that place for 25 more years..."

A Light-Rail Named Desire
Capital Metro Plows Ahead With Studies on Cedar Park Line
News Story  February 28, 1997, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Little Cap Met That Could Well, it ain't exactly the beginning. As former Cap Met board member Lyndon Henry reminded the crowd Monday night, he and others have been working on light-rail studies and plans for Austin since the early 1970s, well before the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CMTA) ran its first bus..."

Where They're Coming From
Connecting the Dots of Texas Writers Month 2002
Books Story  June 7, 2002, by Shawn Badgley
"..."Well, I certainly hope so."May 7 It has been 108 years since O. Henry published "The Bexar Scrip 2692" -- not a one-off attempt at sci-fi, but a disturbing battle between good and evil nonetheless -- in his Austin newspaper The Rolling Stone..."

Acknowledge LBJ's Depravity
Postmarks  November 11, 2013
"...Dear Editor, With the publication of Roger Stone's book indicting Lyndon Johnson in the JFK assassination (The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ), I ask: When in polite society in Austin and Texas can we finally refer to Lyndon Johnson for what he was? A man whose corruption was of biblical proportions and a serial murderer who, in the words of Stone, "would order up a murder just as you or I would order a ham sandwich." Stone reveals that not only did Richard Nixon, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., Barry Goldwater, and the KGB all conclude that LBJ did it, but also that Nixon immediately recognized the murderer of Lee Harvey Oswald – Jack Ruby – as a "Lyndon Johnson man" from the 1940s and a paid informant for the House Un-American Activities Committee. After 50 years, can we finally acknowledge the hellish depravity of LBJ?..."

Koock/Faulk Family Hospitality Lives On
The foundation of Green Pastures – good food, and Texas hospitality – stands strong
Food Story  May 18, 2012, by MM Pack
"...It was built in 1895 on what was then rural farmland, a part of the 1835 Isaac Decker Land Grant. Lawyer Henry Faulk bought the house in 1916 for his five children and various relatives-in-residence; on the surrounding 23 acres, the family maintained a large vegetable garden, a cornfield, a dozen cows, pigs, and chickens...."

A Century of Newsmakers
News Story  January 7, 2000, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...It's a perverse task, picking such a list, guaranteed to start arguments; our apologies to those short-listed folks -- from Frank McBee to Clifford Antone, Lloyd Doggett to Frank Erwin, Gonzalo Barrientos to Darrell Royal, Willie Kocurek to Sarah Weddington, not to mention those passed on, from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Madalyn Murray O'Hair to John Henry Faulk -- who, we decided, lurk further down in Austin's Hot 100 of the 1900s. The Top 10, we think, highlights people who are or were more than famous; they left lasting legacies to Austin itself, and their accomplishments (or sins) were not inevitable but genuine and unique..."

Welcome to Our War
Letters at 3AM
Columns  April 28, 1995, by Michael Ventura
"...Thereafter, his policy killed many more children, women, and men every day than terrorists in Oklahoma City did last week. The same is true of Walt Rostow, Lyndon Johnson, Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon, and all who wreaked horror on Vietnam from the sanctuary of their protected offices. But blaming them, and blaming MacNamara, is just another pathetic stab at making sense of the senseless...."

'Chronicle' Endorsements
News Story  February 14, 2014
"...This marks the first time in several election cycles that we have not endorsed Dale Henry in a Democratic primary race for a seat on the Railroad Commission. (Despite its name, this is the agency that regulates the state's oil and gas industry.) As with other statewide offices, Democrats face long odds when running for a seat on the Railroad Commission, and Henry has lost each of his consecutive attempts..."

Among Green Pastures Again
Virginia B. Wood on why one of the great Texas cookbooks is being reissued.
Food Story  October 19, 2001, by Virginia B. Wood
"...If you're of the opinion that Austin's liberal politics and laid-back alternative lifestyles began with the hippie musicians of the early Seventies or the slackers who came later, think again. The large, extended family of Henry and Martha Faulk, Mary's parents, contributed to Austin's liberal atmosphere as early as the Twenties and Thirties, helping to shape the city's highly valued quality of life...."
