FLORESVILLE -- An alleged lack of cooperation from city officials regarding the release of financial data related to operating the Lauro G.

Yeah, DA Pena isn't going to do anything. His son just recently was married at the Event Center. The biggest upset about the whole event center, is they disgraced a fallen hero of our town by supposedly naming it after him, ... More ›

Alvin - what a dandy idea! Except for the pesky debt it owes. I hear the payments go up to over a million dollars a year come 2016. You can thank the last regime for this big fat mess. No plan. Just spend lots of money ... More ›

Shut down the 4A - total waste of money. Nobody moves to Floresville because of any activity related to them. Any business here woud have come without them. Shut it down.
