The city of San Marcos is seeking nominations of outstanding local women to induct into the San Marcos Women’s Hall of Fame at its 29th annual ceremony in October.
The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. Entry forms are available at the City Clerk’s Office, 630 E. Hopkins or on line at www.sanmarcostx.gov/fame .
The San Marcos Women’s Hall of Fame began in 1984 to honor women for their volunteerism and leadership in the community. Since then, 119 women have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Local residents have a unique chance to put money in the hands of the San Marcos River Foundation and get to eat Mexican food in the process.
From 4 to 9 p.m. today, Chipotle, located at the corner of University Drive and North LBJ, will donate 50 percent of tickets to the river foundation if the people making the order request it.

On Sunday, Aug. 4, the congregation of First Presbyterian Church, San Marcos will welcome new co-pastors, Reverends Joshua and Amy Sutherlun.
In a called congregational meeting on June 2, the congregation voted to call Reverends Joshua and Amy Sutherlun to fill the position of pastor, each working as a part-time co-pastor. The Sutherluns have four children (Serena, Asher, Josiah and Micah) and this arrangement allows them to be responsible parents and fulfill their calling as servants of God at this busy time in their lives.
Researchers from The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, in partnership with the Ocean Exploration Trust, are excavating a rare shipwreck off the Texas coast that could date back nearly 200 years.
The wreck site lies at a perilous depth of 4,300 feet, not far from the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. Sonar data indicates a sharp hull-formed outline measuring approximately 84 feet long by 26 feet wide, with indications of what are possibly the remains of two masts.
