South Texas writers take note: A good one is coming to share his secrets. You’ve seen some of Carroll Cartwright's work in "Jumanji," "Pearl Harbor" and "What Maisie Knew," but now you get the chance to meet him.
Cartwright is a screenwriter and he’s in San Antonio for a two-day event put together by Arts San Antonio, Gemini Ink and the McNay Art Museum. First is the event put on by Gemini Ink.
“I was invited by Sheila Black from her writing program to come and teach one writing class,” Cartwright said.
Ophthalmologist Dr. Clio Harper, M.D., examines the eyes of a premature infant at the University Hospital NICU. Dr. Harper comes to San Antonio from Austin each week to examine and treat infants with Retinopathy of Prematurity, or ROP
University Hospital is participating in a study that doctors hope will save the eyesight of premature babies born in areas where ophthalmologists are in short supply.

Now here's somebody who's led an interesting life. He’s Gino Narboni. And no, he’s not Italian.
“I started in North Africa, in Algeria,” he said.
He’s a softspoken 90-something-year-old man now, but what a life he’s led. He ran off to join General de Gaulle’s free French movement. When they asked him what he wanted to do, he said, "I want to fly. Ha! I was barely 20 at the time.”
The free French didn’t have any airplanes then, but Gino eventually got his wish.
“I was sent to the United States for pilot training,” he said.
University of Texas System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa announced that he had accepted the resignation of UT Austin President Bill Powers.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas say they will be closely monitoring the area of the border occupied by an armed militia known online as Operation Secure Our Border.
Denise Freedman with Operation Secure Our Borders, a collection of armed militias who are planning to patrol an area of the border near Laredo, said they are searching for immigrants coming to the United States through Texas.
“At this particular point we are going to be working on private land, but that is subject to change as law enforcement become willing to work with us,” Freedman said.
