August 17th is the last day for landowners to file their case in Austin to stop the construction of the CREZ Power-line on their land. If you received a packet from the LCRA with maps and legal descriptions, they are telling you that they may build the power-line across your land.

You can intervene on your own or have a lawyer stay up with the burdensome process that spans 180 days. Lawyer fees should roughly be between $120,000 and $200,000. If you don’t object to the construction, the LCRA, etc. assumes that either you don’t care or want the power-line on your land.

Share the costs with your neighbors and join the P-Line Intervention Fund Association and let’s fight this as one group with common interests and goals. We need everyone to make the political statement in Austin that’s needed. Due to the onerous amount of paperwork involved, we will close the fund on August 20th to give Attorney, Kay Trostle, time to file. Thank you to all that have joined and put your money in.We encourage anyone not involved to protect your rights and your property.


We need to know about all endangered species, caves with water, interfaces of geological and ecosystems, rock fences, pinta trail locations, historical and archaeological sites. We have the foundation of a legal case built to go all the way with this. Help the lawyers to make it rock solid.


Numerous people have contributed countless hours of work to this project, however some never get the recognition by the public they should. If you see Sheila Carraway or Shayne Smith, give them a pat on the back. They have worked through mountains of paperwork while yet doing their regular work as well. It is rumored they work for two grouchy old men.
