A Spicewood-area group, who have joined forces with the Texas Environmental Protection Coalition, will stage day-long protest rallies on Saturday and Sunday Sept. 8 and 9 at the entryway of Double Horn Creek subdivision. Supporters of the non-profit group (Pictured here in September 2017) protested a similar operation planned just off the Texas 71/U.S. 281 intersection.
