Bertram City Councilman Adam Warden will become the next mayor of Bertram, while Jane Scheidler joins Kim Klose on the City Council in final but unofficial results from the Saturday, May 5, election.

In Burnet, voters approved 16 of 17 proposed City Charter amendments on the ballot, most by a very healthy margin. And in Granite Shoals, newcomers will take all three spots on the Granite Shoals City Council.


Warden, who did not seek re-election to his City Council seat, took a 19-10 lead in absentee and early voting and then coasted to victory on Election Day, winning by a 92-30 margin over Danielle Armknecht.


GSPD nabs men wanted on Burnet hotel burglary charges



Two Granite Shoals men were arrested on charges stemming from an alleged burglary at a Burnet hotel in May.

Joaquin “Quino” Vincente-Juni Ramirez, 26, was arrested June 18 outside his home in Granite Shoals on burglary of a habitation charge, and Leon Aubrey-Herman Small, also 26, was arrested on June 2.

Granite Shoals officers apprehended Ramirez outside his home on Valley View Lane in Granite Shoals after seeing his vehicle in the area.

When officers attempted to execute the arrest on warrant from Burnet County Justice of the Peace Pct. 2, Ramirez fled on foot toward his home. Granite Shoals officers pursued Ramirez into his yard, where Granite Shoals Police Chief Gary Boshears said he resisted arrest and kicked one officer in the groin as they tried to secure him.
