There will be another day of court next week to resolve the dispute over the original building that housed KWEX-TV Univision in San Antonio. Much of the Univision building is already destroyed, but preservationists are hoping to save what they call the heart and soul of the structure.
The November constitutional amendment election is over and in Bexar County just over six percent of registered voters went to the polls.
That means a lot of voters did not show up, which isn't always because they don't care.
Every election cycle elections office workers begin their hunt to find out what happened to voters who vanish. Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen said the technical term for this lost constituency that doesn't show up to vote is called the "suspense voters."
San Antonio likes to party, but residents also observe and respect religious tradition. Because of that, the city council has approved an amendment to next year's Fiesta celebration, which will run from April 10-27, instead of April 19-27.
The party will last a little longer, but the new dates provide a revision to the regular flow of Fiesta events to respect Holy Week. The amendment will allow Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter, which are April 17, 18 and 20, to be observed without the distraction of parties like Fiesta Fiesta, Oyster Bake, and the Taste of New Orleans.
As CPS Energy closes down the Deely coal power plant and ponders whether a new gas or nuclear plant is the solution, a big conference is landing in town next week pushing solar, wind and other renewables: The 2013 Texas Renewables Conference.
Your "senior moment" -- forgetting where your keys are -- reciting the wrong child's name -- is the result of normal aging, but what makes up normal is defined by what makes up you -- that is to say your genes affect the way your brain declines.
Studying extended families, the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and Yale University published a study showing just how much that decline is influenced by your genetics.
Demolition on the former Channel 41 Univision TV station downtown was halted Tuesday morning due to a court order.
Demolition began at 5:30 p.m. Monday, shortly after the West Side Preservation Alliance was denied an appeal that afternoon to contest a previous decision that blocked a historic designation.
By the time the building was torn apart, about 50 percent of the building was torn apart. Susana Seguara with the Alliance was one of about a dozen people outside what remained of the Univision Building on Tuesday.
Early this morning the Westside Preservation Alliance obtained an injunction against developers wanting to destroy an aging downtown TV studio.
After a city board declined to overturn a Historic and Design Review Commission decision, demolition began on the site of the former TV station, KWEX. Greystar Properties has stated their intention to build condominiums on the site.
Last Friday, states lost 5 billion dollars in funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), when a provision of the 2009 economic stimulus package expired. With the unemployment rate stubbornly high and the economy sluggishly chugging out of the recession, SNAP has been a part of many Americans' lives. The US House of Representatives has approved a Farm bill that cuts an additional $40 Billion from the SNAP. The San Antonio Food Bank and organizations like it expect to see far more business as a result of SNAP cuts.
