Drying Up

There’s virtually nothing but dry land under the bridge and railroad overpass on Post Road over the Blanco River.

Local dance troupe Midnight Breeze entertains a full house at the Sultan's Feast, the annual dinner and belly dance show held at the Activity Center. This year's event was held on Aug. 25 and featured dancers from San Marcos, San Antonio and Austin, along with a variety of vendors and food by Chef Ray. Daily Record photo by Robin Blackburn

Sultan's Feast

The public is invited to a celebration of the grand opening of Fire Station #4, 1404 Wonder World Drive, at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 31. The $6 million and 11,182 square feet station replaces one on Broadway Street, and has three drive-through apparatus bays and sleeping accommodations for up to 10 people.  It will house a fire engine or ladder truck, a brush truck, and an ambulance. The new location will greatly improve response capabilities on the rapidly growing east side of Interstate 35. City of San Marcos photo

New fire station opening

Flags were at half staff at the VFW Post 3413 on Hunter Road Monday, and a message board paid tribute to Senator John McCain, who passed away Saturday. Flags were also at half staff at county offices and some private businesses around town; but not at the U. S. Post Office nor city offices. The White House had its flag at half-staff Sunday but raised to full staff Monday. The White House didn’t issue a proclamation for other federal officers to lower flags out of respect until mid-afternoon. Memorial services for McCain, who spent five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, continue this week. Daily Record photo by Anita Miller
