Oles gets international attention

Denise Cervantes - Special to the Record

In the early mornings, local San Marcos author Laura Oles tends to her latest work in progress while her current reads – a fiction novel and Charles Duhigg hardback — are right next to her.

Oles was recently named one of  10 finalists in the Killer Nashville Claymore Award competition for her manuscript – “Daughters of Bad Men.” 

“I was really stunned,” Oles said. “I had entered the competition expecting to not hear anything back. I just sent it and said ‘I did it’ then went back to working.” 

County set to whittle ‘wish list’

Anita Miller - Managing Editor

Hays County Commissioners will start whittling down a $352 million roads wish list during their meeting today, while at the same time looking for alternative sources of funding.

The preliminary list, released during last week’s meeting, includes intersections improvements and acquisition of right-of-way for future projects, drainage projects and improvements to low-water crossings and hike and bike trails throughout the county, though the majority are in Pct. 1 which includes San Marcos.
