This week’s cat of the week is Summer, a 1-year-old female black and tortoise shell who is spayed. Summer is a gorgeous cat with an amazing personality to match. She’s very friendly and will let you pick her up. She gets restless if she isn’t played with for a long time, but will forgive you if you give her some affection.

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.”

Sgt. Craig Hutchinson of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office used his police radio around 1:30 a.m. to report people prowling behind his house. Investigators arriving moments later found Hutchinson lying on the ground in his backyard in Round Rock, about 15 miles from Austin.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
