San Marcos city council member Scott Gregson hits the bike trail, goes from Seattle to Portland last weekend

By JOE VOZZELLI - Sports Editor |

Scott Gregson was on a different kind of trail last weekend.

The San Marcos city council member wasn’t out on the campaign trail like some of his compatriots. On the contrary, he was on the roads of the Pacific Northwest for last weekend’s Group Health STP 2016, a 205-mile bike race from Seattle, Washington, to Portland, Oregon.

Gregson said the reason he decided to participate in the event was to have some bonding time with his son Tyler who lives in Seattle and works for Boeing.

Anita Miller - Managing Editor |

Back in 2007, Hays County voters approved $30 million in parks bonds by an almost two to one vote.

On Tuesday, the commissioners court heard that the money has been well spent.

“We have completed the mission the citizens authorized us to fulfill,” Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley said, noting that the funding, matched nearly 1.6 to 1 by municipalities, non-profits and other associations, benefited programs from one end of the county to another.

Repeat teen pregnancy rates are low at San Marcos High School, the board of trustees learned Monday.

San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District’s School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) has helped to maintain a less than one percent repeat pregnancy rate in their teen parenting program. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in five births to teens, ages 15 to 19, are repeat births.

Burn ban back on in Hays and Caldwell

Anita Miller - Managing Editor |

Hays County reinstated its burn ban Tuesday morning amid reports the county is increasingly drying up.

“We had a wet spring and there’s been a lot of growth,” Fire Marshal Clint Browning told the commissioners court. All that growth that was green is browning now and becoming wildfire fuel.

“The fire chiefs have been asking for (the ban) since last week,” Browning said. “I’ve had many citizen requests.”

Tara Pohlmeyer - Staff Reporter | 

City staff will soon begin to review and organize all comments made so far on San Marcos’ land development code rewrite, or CodeSMTX.

Planning Manager Abby Gillfillan said once the initial comment period ends, residents will still be able to make comments on the code.
