San Antonio City Council to award $105 million Alamodome concessions contract. But good luck learning anything about the bids -- they're not open to the public.
The City Council will vote next week to award a $105 million vending contract for the exclusive rights to sell food and beverages at the Alamodome for the next 15 years. Officials said three bids from joint ventures were received, but declined to disclose the companies’ names before the City Council picks the winner at its meeting next week. The city gave Aramark and five other companies an opportunity to protest the release of the proposals be...

Cyberbullying, finger-pointing, and a search for answers after David Molak's death.
In the days following the suicide of David Molak, the 16-year-old former Alamo Heights High School student who killed himself Jan. 4 after being cyberbullied, a slew of students and parents went online to vent their anger and affix blame in his death. Some point fingers at what they say is an insular, privileged culture of Alamo Heights itself, where youths are sorted into cliques not just by how much money they have, but how connected their fam...

+Jennifer Hiller and I finally wrote about our big adventure at +Palo Duro Canyon State Park. This place is amazing. 
CANYON — Driving across the vast flatness of the Texas panhandle, you’ll see farm fields and fence posts and not much else. [...] for much of history, few people had ever seen the canyon. [...] recently, we hadn’t known much about Palo Duro Canyon, either. After staring at farms and ranches for so long, we drank in the stunning view, where it seemed that all of geologic time was laid out in layers of red, yellow, gray and brown. Each cabin co...

Sources have confirmed among those arrested were City Manager James Jonas, Mayor Ricardo Lopez and city councilmen Roel Mata, Rogelio Mata and Gilbert Urrabazo.
A public corruption investigation has netted several arrests in San Antonio and Crystal City, and resulted in City Hall being shut down in the town in Zavala County.

In Texas, police reports are public records -- unless they belong to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.
Less than three weeks later, a Bexar County detention officer was accused of sexually assaulted a female inmate in a Sheriff’s Office van in the Bexar County Jail parking lot, according to an arrest affidavit. The officer, Erick Montez, was arrested on felony charges of sexual assault and violating the civil rights of a person in custody. The inmate alleged that Montez, while transporting her in the van “during midnight hours,” sexually assault...

Alamo Heights students threatened, bullied David Molak on Instagram before he committed suicide. This is heartrending.
On Friday, mySA.com obtained screenshots that provide a look into the prolonged cyberbullying an Alamo Heights family says led 16-year-old David Molak to suicide early Monday morning.

You don't have to like the Longhorns to enjoy this well-written story by Mike Finger. Good stuff.
A coach doesn’t prepare victory speeches before playing an opponent hailed as one of the greatest teams in college football history, and he certainly doesn’t think about defining his legacy when he trails by 12 points in the fourth quarter. From the moment that Vince Young took the snap on fourth-and-5 and glided into the corner of the end zone, completing an astonishing rally and setting off pandemonium from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Californi...

Wow. Amazing story, photos and video about Eva Ybarra, the hard-luck queen of the accordion.
In the unforgiving, dusty glow of the streetlights in front of Jacala Mexican Restaurant near the Deco District, Eva Ybarra prepares to transform herself. The grand dame of the conjunto accordion, a hard-luck queen of the instrument for nearly seven decades — playing since she was 4 — doesn’t look like a legend quite yet as she stands curbside just past dusk. At Jacala, Ybarra waits outside with her assistant, Sandy Rodriguez, for the arrival o...
