    San Antonio's traditional Alamo Plaza tree-lighting ceremony will relocate families to Travis Park on Friday, but the cheer is continuing at the original spot -- thanks to a (now-not so) secret elf. Over the weekend, locals and tourists seemed happy to spot an 18-inch tree standing small but proud in front of the Alamo. No one knew how the little tree got there, but they crouched beside it and posted photos on Facebook and Instagram. And that elf -- he isn't done yet. The tree stood in the exact spot a much bigger tree usually stands during the holiday season...

    Officials at a San Antonio school district have voted to rename a high school because of its ties to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, though one trustee says it doesn’t change much. North East Independent School District trustees voted Monday that Lee High School will be renamed Legacy of Educational Excellence High School. The acronym is LEE High School. Board President Shannon Grona says the name is a compromise that retains the school’s history and lessens the expensive process of renaming and rebranding the school with a completely different name. …

    The Second Battle of the Alamo A second Texas Revolution is currently brewing in the Lone Star State. This all comes as a result of a seemingly laudable plan promoted to and passed by the state’s legislature some four years ago. The plan involved the rebuilding and improvement of the state’s most iconic shrine—the Alamo. The plan as promoted and approved would have rebuilt certain historic structures present at the time of the 1836 battle, as well as give visitors there a better and more complete understanding of the physical environment existing at the time of the conflict. Consequent to...

    Shot Spotter Sensor in Omaha, Nebraska One of the technological fixes that has been attempted is the use of sensors to pinpoint gunshots inside of cities. The theory of the technology is fairly simple. Spread audio sensors throughout the city. Feed the input into a computer system, looking for gunshots. With sophisticated programs, isolate the gunshots from the other noise, and pinpoint their location and time. Ideally, this happens in near real time, to allow police response to gunshots. From San Antonio - A program intended to help police officers identify where a shooting happens, get there quicker...
