Trista Eudaily

The difference between San Antonio's marketplace of grocery options and that of Big Sister Dallas, is drastic. Dallas has one of the more competitive grocery markets in the country with big chains like Kroger, Albertsons, and Wal-Mart all grabbing at consumer dollars. Meanwhile San Antonio has only one mainstay grocery chain, H-E-B. 

Sure, San Antonio has a Wal-Mart presence as well as a couple of Whole Foods Markets, but you would be hard pressed to find someone arguing that H-E-B doesn't reign supreme in the Alamo City.

  A group of state and local agencies is putting together a series of workshops for landowners and volunteers who are working on cleaning up debris from Memorial Day floods on the Blanco River.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Texas Forest Service, the Nature Conservancy and other groups are concerned that people may be doing more harm than good by burning fallen trees and digging out debris from the river banks.

After officially entering the race for President in Dallas, former Gov. Rick Perry beat a path to Iowa. At events marking the anniversary of D-Day he highlighted his six years in the U.S. Air Force and focused on veterans' services.

Friday, at Texas’ oldest VFW post in San Antonio, Abbott signed six bills that were part of his veterans’ initiative.   The bills, carried mainly by Bexar County lawmakers, improve access to mental healthcare and make it easier for veterans and their families to acquire occupational licenses.
