The pastor who came under fire last year for his remarks at the Valentine’s Day ceremonies at the Bexar County Courthouse will be allowed to perform marriages again this year.
Last Valentine’s Day, a video recording captured his not so loving comments to same-sex couples who showed up to the midnight ceremony. In the recording, he can be heard saying, "If people are here just trying to be repulsive and offensive to people, you'll have to deal with God one of these days after this."
Musical styles like rock ‘n’ roll, jazz and R&B trace their roots back to the blues, which partly sprang from one man who recorded his famous "Cross Road Blues" in a San Antonio hotel room.
Blues musician Robert Johnson arrived in San Antonio in 1936 and recorded some of his most famous work, like “I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom” and “Terraplane Blues,” in room 414 of the Gunter Hotel downtown.
The modest itinerant musician would join the legends after this, but it was a fledgling time in America’s recording industry.

The San Antonio native officially announced his bid for the seat Thursday at the Guadalupe Arts Cultural Center on the city’s near West Side. Closing his remarks before supporters, Cardenas said, “Let’s revive district 5,” which will be his main battle cry.
In one month, San Antonio will once again be illuminated for the city’s annual multi-media art show known as Luminaria.

As part of the Bexar County Family Justice Center's annual fundraiser, the Woodlawn Theater is donating all proceeds from it's latest show, Neil Simon's "Chapter 2," to help victims of domestic violence.

San Antonio is adding yet another urban living project in the downtown area, but this time a significant number of units will be designated for students.
The project, located at the old Birdsong Peanut Factory site on S. Frio on the near West Side, will have 98 lofts., with 30-50 percent of them for student housing.
The official groundbreaking on Wednesday marked the beginning of a 19,000 square foot facility. Mayor Julián Castro, who has pushed for urban living and has said this is the "decade of downtown," said he was surprised by a peanut factory in San Antonio.
