The William B. Travis “Victory or Death” letter from the Battle of the Alamo is back in San Antonio. The letter will be on exhibit at the Alamo for 13 days -- the same length of time the fortress was under siege -- and then will be returned to the state archives.
Under the watchful eyes of dozens of police officers, state troopers carried the letter into the Alamo before an audience of hundreds.
The fourth-generation great-nephew of Col. William B. Travis read a transcript of his uncle’s letter as it was carried past the crowd and into the Alamo shrine.
Trinity University is unveiling its first-ever wine release, a custom blend that brings an extra benefit to the school.
Winemaker Adam Lee is a Trinity alumnus now living in California's Sonoma County. He’s back in San Antonio to market his wines from the Siduri Winery to vendors across Central Texas -- and to kick off the wine he made specifically for his alma mater.
Lee said the idea came from a conversation with Trinity’s President, Dennis Ahlburg.
Since 2011, CPS Energy has been able to send out mass alerts to customers when widespread power outages occurred, coordinated by zip code.
But now their system is more sophisticated, and will notify individual customers when power outages more than 15 minutes occur at their specific address.
CPS spokeswoman Yvonne Casanova said the system will continue to be tested through the end of February. Over the next week or so, during regular business hours, customers who have signed up for alerts on the CPS website should receive a test message.
