An unseasonably warm winter is impacting peach crops in the Hill Country.  Some growers say a low crop yield is bad for other businesses.

 

Jamey Vogel is the owner of Vogel Orchard between Fredericksburg and Stonewall. He’s also the president of the Hill Country Fruit Council. Vogel says peaches in the early part of the season won’t be affected by the warm winter, but the freestone peaches that grow later in the summer will.

San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor believes she's accomplished a lot in her first term as mayor.  She's the front runner in her race for reelection, but facing strong opposition from two opponents.  Today, we continue our conversations with the leading mayoral candidates by sitting down with Ivy Taylor.  We met at the San Antonio Botanical Garden.

On this spring afternoon mayoral candidate Manuel Medina is spending some quality time with his wife and two girls, 3-year-old Sara Sophia and 7-year-old Michelle Mari.

Medina said this location brings back memories because the Ranch Motel, nearby on Broadway, is where his journey in San Antonio started.
