The annual San Antonio/Bexar County Point in Time Count of the Homeless is taking place Thursday.

Dianne Talbert with the South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless says hundreds of volunteers will be surveying the homeless and doing demographic counts.

“HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) requires us to do this count once a year. We identify demographic information to them and that is in support of the funding that they provide for us for shelter and homeless services,” said Talbert.

Abbott: State Agencies Must Make Contracting Changes

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said on Wednesday that continuing legal charges would not affect his decision on whether to run for President in 2016, or not. A San Antonio judge has denied Perry’s attempt to have the felony abuse-of-power case against him thrown out.   

Perry had just addressed voters in the early primary state of South Carolina on Tuesday, when State Judge Bert Richardson announced his decision; he would not throw out the charges Perry faced.

“Buffalo Soldiers after the Civil War became very prevalent in West Texas as it led up into the Indian Wars.”
