Open records review

The Access Across America II event hosted by the San Antonio Express-News was a great success! Professor Joey Senat, visiting from Oklahoma State University, did a spectacular job reminding us all how important it is to continue to push for access and fight for open government. 

Professor Joey Senat speaks to journalists Thursday night.
Here's a link to Senat's presentation in San Antonio. Although he's been traveling across the U.S. all summer giving similar talks, Thursday night's session was specific to Texas. 

Senat also referenced a lengthy handout that has tons more information on what public records are available from a variety of agencies. That's online here

A big thanks to Mike Leary, the new executive editor of the Express-News, who introduced Mr. Senat. Thanks again to everyone who came out Thursday night! I hope you all learned as much as I did.

Question: What are you doing at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 8?

Answer: Gridiron 2012
In honor of our first day of rehearsals, I wanted to spread the word about our upcoming Gridiron show, "Rumor Has It." The show parodies local and national news, and newsmakers, and it will leave you in absolute stitches.
Please, get your tickets today and let others know about the hilarity that is Gridiron - it's been five years, there are undoubtedly tons of people in San Antonio who've never seen a show. Remember, proceeds benefit scholarships for journalism students.
We're looking forward to entertaining you!
