After the Bastrop Complex Fires burned his property and destroyed his home five years ago, artist and furniture maker Walter Winslett took a tour of the damage. That’s when he came across two trees, charred and dead, but still standing.

Inspired after a visit to Austin’s South by Southwest Festival in March, President Barack Obama and White House staff are creating their own version – South by South Lawn. 

In Texas, there’s far more at stake in the 2016 election season than who takes the White House.

The state is battling with federal courts over the voter ID law. There’s dysfunction in the Texas Democratic and Republican parties. And demographic change is accelerating.

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke at the Travis County Expo Center last night – capping off a day of events in Fort Worth and Austin. We sent KUT’s Mose Buchele and Ben Philpott over to the rally provide full coverage of the event – inside and out – along with photographers Gabriel Cristóver Pérez and Miguel Gutierrez Jr. You can view the moments they captured in the slideshow above.

Donald Trump has arrived in Austin. He's taping a town hall event at ACL Live at the Moody Theater from 4 to 6 p.m. He'll head to a fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. at the Headliners Club, then on to a rally at the Travis County Expo Center at 7:30 p.m.

This five-minute radio gem is a listener favorite. Listeners across the country tune in each day as host Garrison Keillor recounts the highlights of that day in history and reads a short poem or two.
