Report: Guadalupe River Going Dry

Most of South Texas is still trying to recover from the devastating three-year drought, with not much relief in sight. As a result, lakes, rivers, creeks and streams are quickly losing water volume. A new report on My San Antonio.com says the Guadalupe River is the driest it has been in more than fifty years.

18-year-old Victorian Produces Independent Film About Boxing, Women’s Fight

(J.R. Ortega/Victoria Advocate)  Natasha Verma is everything like the character in her independent film "Hardy."

Verma, an 18-year-old Victoria native, pushes for excellence as an independent young woman.

Having already graduated from the University of Texas with double bachelor's degrees in broadcast journalism and premedical biology at 17, she is now wrapping up her master's in broadcast journalism at Columbia University in New York City.

Heather Hardy, 31, the female boxer in her film, also fights for excellence in her craft as an independent young woman. She fights not only against her opponents but also against those who believe boxing is still a man's sport and that women deserve less pay.
