Part of a gathering movement in San Antonio, Texas, and reflective of actions taking place across the country and around the world, a group of roughly 40 area residents occupied […]
Can we imagine Texas losing a fight to Kansas or Mississippi? Why, yes we can.
Sixty-something days. For some, it can’t come fast enough. By “some,” we mean those losing land, liberty, and fraternity on La Frontera.
I’ve been supremely critical of the paper’s smalltown chamber of commerce functioning on this issue. Consider their coverage and you can’t help but conclude, the editorial content has been spun – if not to sell the lab to SA – at least to keep a lid on the criticism.
‘Member all those federal rules Chertoff trampled to get Border Wall construction on track? Water, land, animals, native graves, etc. — all shrugged off with Congressionally mandated powers granted the Homeland Security Czar under the Real ID Act.
As South Texas wall portions are going up, and residents there are still trying to muck out from recent storms, the news from the Arizona portion of the wall isn’t good.
Karl Grossman tackles Plum Island (as he has dutifully since the 1970’s) in two news segments to be aired on WVVH-TV up in New York this weekend. There are some interesting facts about the proposed federal germ lab that may be on interest to San Antonians, to date the most supportive/apathetic community on Homeland Security’s short-list for the proposed National Bio- & Agro-Defense Facility.

This is the week my second major story on CPS hit the street. When I took them on a year ago the challenge was tied to climate security concerns: The promises of decentralization and pitfalls of nuke overlooks. My split with CPS Energy plans was based on economic argument and generation-scale health and safety issues.
One year ago, San Antonio’s chances of landing Homeland Security’s $500-million golden goose of germ research — the National Bio- & Agro-Defense Facility — were good. Three of the eighteen […]
I was feeling pretty big about my first scissor-tailed flycatcher sighting of the spring (top). She lit on the topmost branch of a live oak at Mission San Juan and […]
For all the talk about Homeland Security feverish effort to recreate our southern boundary with a fantastical fence, ignore a quarry of federal laws pertaining to pesky matters of clean […]
“How do you get representatives who aren’t from Texas to care about Texas?” That’s what the non-profit conservation director was asking. The topic? What else? The Border Wall and the […]
