Doug McDonald, who heads Alamo Trust says This is a huge blow to the Alamo Master plan, which was supposed to make the plaza look more like it did back in 18 36. If we really love Texas history, and we think the story of the Alamo is important, this is our one opportunity. Our lifetimes actually tell the story to tell it well, to tell us of public understand that The move was backed by tourism leaders and groups like the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. But it faced opposition from many Texas Republicans like Lieutenant governor Dan Patrick, who felt that moving the cenotaph would disrespect the defenders. San Antonio Police were involved in a shooting late last night at the Westway Apartments on Cool Labor Road That's on the city's Westside officers were responding to a burglary when they heard a gunshot come from the apartment. A woman and five kids came running out of the unit until police there was a man with a gun inside. When officers tried to talk him out. He fired several shots at them. Officers returned fire hitting the man. He is now hospitalized. No word on his condition. Police chief William McManus is reviewing Bodycam footage.

"Traffic back to south cross kind of left lane blocked. Megan Bishop NewsRadio twelve hundred w you're not experiencing rain right now. Wait about ten minutes because if coming ball last long at least this wave cloudy skies chance of rain today. Low in the mid to upper eighties. News record. Jim foresight, born commentary twice each morning. Seven ten and eight ten Mike appel co host the pure upheld podcast before seven thirty. The texas. Senate voted last night to ban cities counties school districts from unilaterally moving to remove monuments, which have been in place for at least twenty five years without first getting the approval of the tax payers in an election, Charlie. This may have been the most emotional three hours of debate in the Texas legislature. This session state Senator Brandon Creighton has a Republican from the Houston area. His Bill doesn't specifically say confederate monuments. But obviously, we all know that those are the monuments that people are moving and those of the monuments that he wants to stop being removed. But the Bill was expanded in debate to include the Alamo plaza Senator, Jeff. Coming back to the Alamo because we've talked about it a lot. But Charlie if this Bill passes as written and approved by the Senate on a pure party line vote, if it goes through the house and assigned by the governor this could very well scrap, the four hundred million dollar plan to renovate Alamo plaza because the centerpiece of this plan is to recreate the footprint of the plaza as it was in eighteen thirty six and eighteen thirty six didn't have a big all Senate half right in the middle of it. The plan is to move it out of the Alamo plaza footprint, but still in the area in front of the mega hotel. But that may not happen under this Bill. The two African American members of the state Senate who are Boris byles of Houston and rice west of Dallas responded, very emotionally to the spill they called it disgraceful and endured senators to remember that these monuments celebrate the pain and suffering of our Br. Brothers and sisters who were enslaved people and wanted the confederacy wanted to keep them in slaved at a very very unusual move, even several African American members of the Texas house migrated over to the Senate chamber. You almost never see that to urge by their presence, the lawmakers defeat this Bill it also forbids the unilateral renaming of streets or schools, which are named for confederate figures. We're starting to see that more and more as as well, if the monuments are on state property like for example, the Jefferson Davis statue that was removed two years ago from the main mall at the university of Texas at Austin, they couldn't be removed without a vote of a super majority of the legislature, which would mean, you would have to wait until the legislative session, which only happens every two years, and you can't get a super majority on whether or not January first is New Year's day in the legislature. Let alone something as emotional as this governor abbot has not spoken out. On whether or not he will sign this. Obviously, it's still has to make it through the house. There's only two weeks left in the session. And there's a lot that needs to be done like school, finance and property taxes. So it's quite possible that Senator crayton's Bill may just be lost in the shuffle. But if it isn't this would be very very significant in the effort to renovate Alamo plaza. And also how the state of Texas views and commemorates the civil war, and it's positioned in the confederacy in the nineteenth century, someone might be asking. If this goes through and passes if there was a monument that was in the same location for twenty five years and has been removed from that location. Will it be back? The Bill is not retroactive or not require the city to remove the confederate memorial back to Travis park that was removed having a lot wouldn't it? As she said, you can't get them to agree on. When New Year's day is Mike appel co-hosted pure palca podcast before seven thirty your commute and Murphy's law. They have a lot in common. But compared to the things that can ruin your commute looks like an optimist. That's why you need traffic every ten minutes mornings and.

"Record Jim foresight. Can I expect a alternative proposal to the alternative proposal to the Alamo plaza renovation? That was an alternative proposal to the first three or four Alamo plaza renovation. So you could go back to one thousand nine hundred four if you want on what we've decided to do with the I rather night today, the Senate Tonio Conservation Society is going to float its alternative proposal for what to do with Alamo plaza. And it really doesn't affect the plaza that much it calls for the inclusion of the Woolworth building as part of the footprint of the entire museum area. That's going to be built their pointing out that the Woolworth museum was the scene of history in and of itself. It was the first peaceful and voluntary desegregation of public facility anywhere in the old confederacy go back to March of nineteen sixty when African American and Anglo patrons at the lunch counter of the Woolworth. Sat down peacefully desegregating the lunch counter helped by a very very courageous pastor named Buckner fanning at trinity Baptist church. The idea of peaceful at a great integration. And the end of segregation spread across downtown San Antonio affecting many, but certainly not all of the merchants the restaurants, the other facilities in downtown San Antonio truly historic moment. Ended allowed San Antonio to avoid a lot of the rancor that was seen in other places in the old confederacy when desegregation became a reality later in the sixties and Conservation Society says yes, the battle of the Alamo the history of the Spanish in Texas the entire history of the southwest are worth exploring and worth exhibiting. But so is this event that happened at the Woolworth building? So they're going to call for the Woolworth building in the Crockett block right next door to be included as part of the entire renovation plan curry. The general land office plan calls for the Woolworth in the Crockett buildings to undergo very very serious engineering study to determine they were building the nineteenth century to try to determine if they're strong enough to be to house the world class museum that will how's the Phil Collins collection other collections related to the amount of not the general and office which owns both of the buildings. They bought him in two thousand seventeen is calling for the buildings to be demolished. And a new museum to be built in that location. So at the Conservation Society is calling for essentially is to conserve the Woolworth building. And hopefully, the Crockett building as well.

"Warmer and where we are right now. Which is by the way, thirty nine degrees, cloudy skies tomorrow and fifty five sunshine on Friday, sixty three. Fearless predictions from the fearless prognosticator news director Jim Forsyth with a look at two thousand nineteen Charlie at once again, these are predictions that are more accurate than anything Kirk herbstreit could say about who's going to win the Sugar Bowl. Off air nece. Kirk herbstreet wasn't the only person in America, picking Georgia to beat Texas. As a matter of fact about the only people that were picking Texas to beat Georgia was Texas in Texas fan. Yeah. Obviously it's going to be a busy year at city hall looked out. But it's almost election time municipal elections. Coming up in may the filing period begins in two weeks, believe it or not for the municipal elections in San Antonio. Obviously the spotlight will be on the mayor Rodney ehrenberg will run for reelection. He hasn't announced it yet. But you can count on it. It's generally expected that northwest side councilman Greg Brockhouse will also run for mayor. But Charlie right now, I don't say Brockhouse being able to beat near and Burke, I think from the way the mayor's position the only serious challenger. He could face would be a pro business conservative think Joe Cryer, Carol Shubert or Gordon. Hartman somebody who could rally the business community the business community. Thanks, great Brockhouse's a brick thrower. They will not forgive him for being the only member of council is supported those three charter amendments that were proposed by the fire union. So he's. Not going to get the support he needs the mayor's not going to be facing a challenge from the left race. How Danica thought about it and he decided against it. So right now, the mayor looks in pretty good shape. But I know that the business community is continuing to pick up the phone and try to find that strong candidate who may be able to represent the conservative interests in the election. As far as city councils concerned, we probably won't see the massive turnover. We saw two years ago Ray, all is term limited. So he won't be back. We've talked before about Shirley Gonzales on the west side, potentially. Replacing Paula Zahn and Commissioner's court if Brockhouse does run for mayor that would open up that north west side seat. A couple of candidates are beginning to bubble up political consultant, Frankie Consol this wolf has already announced. She is running for the district. Eight council seat that would make her the first transgender individual to be elected to a big city city council anywhere in Texas, which I think would be interesting. And that'll probably be something to talk about during the campaign. But right now, the north siders from the way, I see it Politis, courage Perry. Look like they're in pretty good shape. They're popular in their districts. They're both respected for district service. And right now, they have to be the odds on favourite to win reelection. Obviously on the east side crews Shaw just announced his resignation he will be replaced by an appointed member of council next week. So obviously that seat these side council seat is generally in play. And it will definitely be in play in the may elections. Also coming up in nineteen we could see the Senate half moved. We are expecting the first turning of dirt in the major three hundred million dollar Alamo plaza renovations that were approved last year that is going to be controversial. And there will probably be a lot of activity around that. But we should see by this time next year by this time in twenty twenty. We should see a very very different looking Alamo plaza as they seriously begin work. On this major renovation that we spent essentially the entire year of two thousand eighteen talking about and something that isn't being talked about a lot. But I think is going to be very controversial as the year moves forward is that next November on election day? It's the constitutional amendment elections to approve whatever constitutional amendments the legislature puts on the ballot. We are expected to be confronted with a major and very very expensive transportation plan. We've talked about it before I see this taking the same political ramifications of the battles over Applewhite back in the nineteen ninety s I see this as being very emotional. I see this is generating a lot of comment and a lot of controversy on both sides. We've gotten kind of a preview of what it might look like the mayor said no tolls. No trains, but there's still a lot of very controversial parts that are expected to be included in that plan, including a huge emphasis on mass transit, which has never been popular in San Antonio. So as November. Comes closer bet. Your money. We spend a lot of time talking about transportation in the second half of two thousand nine hundred. All right, Jim..
