We’ll be honest here; we’ve had a terrible time staying connected to the Internet the last few days, and if you see us get knocked off — well, patience with one of our regional ISPs is running thin. However, we’ll chat with Kerrville Convention and Visitor’s Bureau President and CEO Julie Davis about travel and tourism. If you’re having problems with unreliable Internet service in Kerr County, let us know.
Growing up in Southern California, Louis Amestoy remained connected to Texas as the birthplace of his father and grandfather. Texas was always a presence in the family’s life. Amestoy’s great-grandparents settled in San Antonio, Texas, drawn by the city’s connections to Mexico and the region’s German communities. In 2019, Louis Amestoy saw an opportunity to make a home in Texas. After 30 years of working for corporate media chains, Louis Amestoy saw a chance to establish an independent voice in the Texas Hill Country. He launched The Lead to be that vehicle. With investment from Meta, Amestoy began independently publishing on Aug. 9, 2021. The Amestoys have called Kerrville home since 2019.
