San Antonio Blue Bell fans will have to travel a bit north or eastward to lay their hands on the first batch of ice cream that returns to store shelves in Texas. The creamery posted a video Monday saying it will start delivering ice cream on August 31.

For the second time in less than a week, a Jewish congregation is targeted by hate filled graffiti.

Vandals hit Congregation Agudas Achim on Huebner Road at Bitters. A maintenance man made the discovery on a storage shed Monday morning.

“On the storage shed, in blue spray paint, there were two words - one was Jews, J-E-W-S, and right below it was Jew, J-E-W,” said congregation President Barbie Scharf-Zeldes. “We didn’t have any other graffiti, but there was also two barbeque grills stolen from the storage shed.”
