Drive less and breathe easier

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — New three-year readings show the San Antonio metropolitan area ground-level ozone to be second — narrowly — only to Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas. This is a wake-up call that San Antonio needs to speed up measures to bring the city into compliance with attainment standards. But it’s also a wake-up call for residents to take matters into their own hands. A region found to be in nonattainment could face higher costs for operating its businesses.

Trips with Pets: Dining out with dogs

Pets are family and when we venture out, they should be able to join us. That includes bringing them to pet friendly restaurants. Although pets are not allowed inside establishments that serve food due to health code laws, many restaurants have pet friendly outdoor seating and welcome four-legged guests to accompany their pet parents.
However, there are a few tips that pet parents should heed before and during dining with their pups to ensure an enjoyable dining experience.
