In the first segment:

The newly proposed Crescent Hills Development in Comal County sits near the entrance to the cave of the largest colony of Mexican Freetail Bats, Bracken Bat Preserve, and over the recharge zone or the Edwards Aquifer.

There are concerns over what the impact this development will have on both. We speak with representatives of Bat Conservation International and the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance on their concerns. Repeated attempts at contacting the developer weren't responded to.

In the second segment:

The Source: To The Batcave!

The fight to redistrict Texas enters another chapter with a special session of the legislature convened in Austin and a new court case begun in San Antonio. We check in with Michael Li of txredistricting.org, a website devoted to all things redistricting.  

*The Source airs at 3 p.m. on KSTX 89.1 FM - audio from this show will be posted by 5:30 p.m.
