Broccoli salad packs a powerful crunch. The vegetable is also chockful of nutrients. Not a fan of broccoli? Accent it with bacon, sunflower seeds and raisins. Many variations of this recipe also call for cubed or grated cheddar cheese for extra zip. (www.yummly.com)

Texas State wants to schedule more in-state non-conference games in football.

Athletic director Larry Teis made as much clear in July when the Bobcats announced they had added a home-and-home series with Southern Methodist University starting in 2019. Texas State heads up to Dallas in 2019 and the Mustangs will be in San Marcos in 2020.

New Blanco monitoring plan offered

Anita Miller/Managing Editor

What if the people of Wimberley had gotten an hour’s notice before the Memorial Day Weekend flood hit? What if the vacation home where the three Corpus Christi families were staying had had a landline over which they could have received a reverse 911 call?
