3 sought in attempted robbery at Texas State

Bria Patton - Daily Record Intern

University police said they’re not ruling anything out in connection with an attempted robbery that occurred on the Texas State campus late Monday.

Meanwhile, the UPD is encouraging students to travel in groups and in well-lit areas at night, or to call Bobcat Bobbies for an escort.

Police said three black males attempted to rob the victim in the Speck Street Garage at around 11 p.m. Monday before escaping in an older model blue Nissan Altima.

City should have held hearings on H-E-B

Editor,

I will continue to shop at “My H-E-B” but I do have a problem with Mr. Phil Hutchinson’s assessment of the location of the proposed location at Wonder World Drive at Hunter Road, Mr. Hutchinson has all his information correct and a very good argument for placing the store there.

H-E-B brand reputation headed for ruin

Dear Sir,

Your editorial missed the critical point about this corner. We want WW at Hunter  dedicated to a green space watershed prevention park. No building allowed. This had been told to Ben Scott multiple times.

The traffic is already horrid and continues to worsen. What part of this equation does the city council not understand? Citizens voted out several members who supported previous initiatives that had disastrous consequences.

Centro’s 6th anniversary Saturday

Anita Miller - Managing Editor

It was six years ago that a decades-long dream became a reality. 

The old Bonham School building deep in the heart of a San Marcos barrio was reinvigorated with the opening of Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos.

The community center has since been filled with people of all ages engaged in pursuits as diverse as accordion playing and tamale making. It has also hosted impressive art shows and thought-provoking  meetings on topics of interest to a mainly Hispanic community.
