Mihalkanin wants single family housing

Tara Pohlmeyer - Staff Reporter |

Former city council member Dr. Ed Mihalkanin is running for the unexpired one year term of Place 3 on the San Marcos City Council. 

Mihalkanin served previously on the council from 1996 to 2000 and from 2001 to 2006. He said multiple issues have made him decide to run again. 

“What’s ironic is these issues are the (issues) that we were facing on the council when I was on and I’m sure that the councils before I was on were facing,” he said. “But, there’s a higher degree of urgency. We need to increase our single family homes.”

Help pours in as waters recede

DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (AP) — Keisha Taylor, a 37-year-old mother of four, has spent three nights in two different shelters since her family fled the flooding at their Baton Rouge apartment complex. And she doesn’t know how many more nights they will be sleeping on cots inside the downtown arena where hundreds sought shelter.

Taylor probably could stay with relatives in White Castle, a town about 30 miles west of Louisiana’s capital city, but three of her kids are enrolled in Baton Rouge schools that could reopen next week.

“This is where I live. I need to be home,” she said.
