Fronteras: San Antonio is trying to figure how to regulate ride sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft. This week, we look at how Uber is faring in San Diego. Rosie Castro was a trailblazer for Latino politicians, which includes her twin sons, Julián and Joaquín. Rosie will be featured on HBO Latino this fall. She joins us on Fronteras to talk about her early activism days, her sons’ political careers and more.
I would like to celebrate the life of Janet Cortez, a ranchera singer whose stage name was La Perla Tapatia. Cortez was member of beloved singing group Las Tesoros de San Antonio. She died Sunday at 83.
I was fortunate enough to see her perform several times in her trademark bolero hat and black and white cape, but what amazed me was her determination to perform despite a life time of health issues -- including throat cancer.
Texas Matters: Groups and politicians from across the state are all having their say in yesterday's ruling in the Texas school finance case. We hear from a MALDEF attorney, a conservative policy analyst and two legislators on the Senate Committee on Education.
Big issue, big decision
School districts throughout the state are applauding a court ruling that may eventually lead to an overhaul of the way Texas pays for schools.
Texas teacher trade associations are calling on state lawmakers to begin drafting a budget that addresses yesterday's decision in the school finance trial. But one state business group has a different stance.
Travis County District Judge John Dietz ruled the school finance system was unconstitutional, saying it leaves schools in lower income areas at a disadvantage and "cannot provide a constitutionally adequate education for all Texas schoolchildren."
The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts opens in grand style next Thursday but this Thursday I spoke to to Sarah Pautz, principle dancer for Ballet San Antonio, who has a lot on the line that night.
As you’d expect, she’s a slight, delicate-looking person. But that look is deceptive. She’s muscular, determined and focused. The opening program on Thursday is a series of excerpts from popular productions, such as "Swan Lake."
Truckers like this one at Port San Antonio as well as other shipping industry partners and that make goods for export can learn safer transportation practices through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Trusted Trade Partner agreements

The early college high school movement is growing exponentially in Texas. There are more than 60 in the state and five are opening this fall in San Antonio alone. One of them is the St. Philip’s early college high school with SAISD.
Outside the Bowden Building in the middle of the St. Philips campus, teachers dressed in bright-orange t-shirts greet the incoming freshmen, who are wearing either white or blue. It’s the first day of class for the new school and the students are being welcomed by SAISD Superintendent Sylvester Perez.
