COURTESY PHOTO Buda historian Cecil Clark ac- knowledges one of the town's most significant landmarks- the Live Oak Cemetery. Viewing for 'Voices of BUDA BiTS "'~[ Toices of Hays Coun- I / ty" will be heard in Buda on Friday, July 30, with the latest oral his- tory series sponsored by the Hays County Histori- cal Commission. The free event will feature Buda's beloved Cecil Clark. Mark your calendar and plan now to attend at 6:30 p.m.i in the Kunkel Room at Buda Elementary School. We recently learned of the death of former Buda resident Robert Holt. Rob- ert was 86 years old and had been living at Regency Village Nursing Home in Austin for the past few years. He was a member of the Onion Creek Senior Citizens in Buda and had served on the board of directors for several years. He became known as the "donut man" because he would deliverdonuts to : : the senior center as well as other offices around town. Burial was in South Carolina. Our prayers are needed for several of our friends. Ollie Boothe is suffering from shingles and is in lots of pain. Evelyn Hamllin who was involved in an automobile accident in which she was not hurt, but her car was a mess and also the accident was not her fault!

'Cloudy, with a Chance of Meatballs' in the forecast ON CB ITER For those of you who attempted to respond to the email address printed last week for a free chicken dinner at tonight's Town Hall Meeting, I was just informed that there should have been an "s" after Kyie (brad@kylesvoice. corn}. Sorry about that. It's still happening, tonight at 7 p.m. at City Hall, and Coun- cilmember Pickett will be on-hand to give you the lat- est news in city government and is genuinely interested in hearing what you have to say. Free dinner and an op- portunity for your concerns to actually be heard. Seems like a no-bralner. I guess the big news on Center Street this.week must be the movie in the park on Friday night. Looks like the children's classic "CloudyWith a Chance of Meatballs" will be showing on the big out-door screen in Gregg-Clarke Park at 9:00 p.m. From what I hear, it's a great way to wile away these Texas summer nights. And as for these Texas summer days, I saw fire trucks shooting plumes of cool water across Blanco Street last week and could hear the shrieks of happy kiddos a block away as the KFD entertained and enlightened local children at the Kyle Community Library annual Splash Day. Unfortunately, though, all good things must come to an end and the library will be wrapping up its 2010 Summer Reading Club with prizes and pizza, a moon- walk, face painting, train rides and snow cones. The festivities begin on Thurs- day at 10:30 a.m. so bring your final reading logs and reward yourselves for a job well done this summer. Last, but not least, don't forget bilingual storytime on Friday at 10:30 a.m. The theme this week is "El Desierto". Also, don't lose sight of the fact that although we are under voluntary water restrictions and should only water between the hours of 7 p.m. and 10 a.m. So, you guys in charge of watering around Target and Kohl's, your incessant high-spray watering at three o'clock in the afternoon insults us all and makes you look like a bad neighbor. Lucky for us, though, was that incred- ible rain storm last Sunday afternoon. I had to smile when I walked out of the Free Press offices and saw the double rainbow span- ning the tracks from Buda to San Marcos, it seemed, with Kyle cradled in its arc. Made me miss my old next door neighbors, Bret and Andy, who so loved rain- bows. Validation, I suppose. 1 TM VARICOSE VEIN CLINICS NEW 760 FM OFFICE IN BUDA! 967, BUDA, TEXAS
