AUSTIN — A proposal to change the state’s definition of who is considered an adult in the criminal justice system is on its way to the Texas House.

The bill to classify 17-year-olds as juveniles, could yet be stymied by Democratic Sen. John Whitmire. He oversees criminal justice issues in the Senate, and has said he's opposed to raising the age.

But many others support raising it to 18.

Another fun-filled weekend in San Antonio. Here's a snapshot. First off a stop at the Overtime Theater downtown where playwright John O’Neill tells us about his play opening, written on the assassination that started World War I—the killing of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and wife Sophia.

“I concocted a modern-day story about a teacher in a troubled school teaching a unit on this assassination.”

The play straddles both the modern day, and just prior to World War I.

The Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, at San Antonio's McNay Art Museum, is regarded by many to be the most important collection of its kind in the country. In addition to the thousands of volumes of rare and essential books, there are thousands more pieces of visual art in the form of costume, scene, and stage designs, most of them with a musical pedigree. How did such a collection come about? Tobin Collection curators Linda Hardberger and Jody Blake give us some clues.

  The FDA has announced that Sabra Dipping Company is voluntarily recalling 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus due to possible listeria contamination. The FDA published a list of the affected SKUs. 

The hummus items being recalled are only those of the “Classic” flavor variety and are packaged in a variety of sizes for distribution in retail stores throughout the U.S.

HEB told Texas Public Radio this morning that it has pulled all of the Classic Sabra Hummus from all of its stores.  HEB Spokeswoman Dya Campos said no other Sabra products have been affected at this time. 

The Sabra recall, however, comes on the heels of several food recalls for possible listeria contamination.

SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio police say a man is dead after leading officers on a vehicle chase that ended in a shootout. They say it’s unknown if the suspect, who wasn’t identified, had shot himself in the head, or, if the wound was caused by police bullets.

The police department said an officer attempted to pull the suspect over Wednesday for a traffic stop at Loop 410, but the suspect fled. Police later spotted the suspect’s vehicle in a parking lot, but he fled again, leading officers on a chase.
