The city of San Antonio has been going back and forth on an annexation plan. Initially a historic growth plan of five sections of the county has been rolled back dramatically. Now only a single swath remains, encompassing 13,000 residents, several businesses off of Interstate 10 West. Mayor Ivy Taylor supported the revised plan.

The city of San Antonio is considering reducing $1.3 million from delegate agencies dealing with community safety net programs. The cuts affect programs within the Rape Crisis Center, the Family Violence Prevention Services Inc, and other associated safety net programs. Instead much of the money would go towards workforce development programs under the reshuffle.

A Native Texas Tribe Now Has Legal Eagle Feathers

Jun 20, 2016

From Texas Standard:

They called it "Operation Powwow"  back in 2006, a federal agent went undercover to raid a tribal ceremony. It ended with threats of prison time and fines for tribe members participating in the powwow.

The crime? Using eagle feathers without a permit.

But now the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas has won a decade-long legal battle over use of the feathers, what the tribe considers to be a victory for religious liberty.
