On this episode, we chat about Kerr County events, guns and ammo and the world of finance. The Kerrville Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Leslie Jones updates us on this week’s events — we count at least 45. And to top the day, Texas Hill Country Advisors Andrew Gay and Gilbert Paiz come by Pint and Plow to tell us about the economy. And, like usual, we’ll probably have someone show up unannounced.
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.
