Officials from San Antonio and OCI Solar gather for a group photo at the announcement in July of this year. San Antonio used the Korean Pavilion at Denman Estates Park to highlight the Korean solar company's agreement with CPS.
San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and CPS-Energy are responding to a CNN news story about a solar energy deal that casts the political rising star in a negative light.

Throwing spaghetti against the wall may be a good metaphor for San Antonio filmmakers Taylor James Johnson and Dylan Cody Altman. The act itself would likely find a welcome home in one of the duo’s short films, which often take the form of pop culture parodies, full of outrageous behavior.
