We hope everyone had a great
Labor Day weekend - we're especially glad the rain held off until the
end of the holiday! With more rain anticipated for this week, we
suggest routinely checking the City's list of street closures before
starting your drive to work, school or home. Stay safe and dry this
week, and remember: Turn Around, Don't Drown.

District 10 Neighbor and Country Gardens award winner Eva
Templeton, 96, is featured in the Fall 2018 Edition of Country
Gardens magazine for her beautiful, lush backyard garden. A retired
artist and teacher trained in Germany, Ms. Templeton uses Classical
Art techniques, typically incorporated in paintings, to create depth
and detail, transforming her suburban backyard into a whimsical
landscape reminiscent of an Old World estate. We are proud to

Bridge Renaming to Honor
SFC David James Todd, Jr.
On June 14th, City Council voted unanimously to
rename the bridge on Jones Maltsberger between Oakline and Oak Trail
to honor Sergeant First Class David James Todd, Jr.
On August 20th, 2008, U.S. Army Sgt. First
Class David James Todd, Jr. was killed in action in Bala Mueghab,
Afghanistan as he saved the lives of 12 of his fellow men. On August
18th, we remembered his courage and honored him by renaming the Jones
Maltsberger Road Bridge in SFC Todd's honor.
I extend my deepest gratitude to the Todd
Family, the City's Transportation and Capital Improvements
Department, the City's Office of Military Affairs, District 9
Councilman John Courage and his staff, MoMak's Backyard Malts &
Burgers, and Samantha Wickwire for your work in making this

We appreciate the San Antonio Police Officers
Association and SAWS for donating backpacks and also want to thank
CPS, 3-1-1, and Pre-K 4 SA for donating supplies and Morgan's
Wonderland for allowing us to host this event in their space.

their free backpacks and supplies and hang around to eat, dance, play
games, and take photos in the photobooth. This event was a success,
and we are extremely grateful for everyone who came out to enjoy the
back to school festivities.
