BBB: How to Avoid Buying Counterfeit Event Tickets

You're excited. You've found what you think is a "great" deal on a pair of tickets to that big concert, championship tournament, or other big event. You buy the tickets, drive to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or maybe even make the trek all the way up to Dallas. When you get to the doors of the venue, they scan your tickets. Then, like a cold slap to the face, the ticket-taker informs you that your "bargain" (or not, if you paid scalped rates) tickets are no good. In fact, they're counterfeit. Phonies. Fakes. You may ask yourself, "How could I have fallen for it, and what do I do now?" Here's some advice from the Better Business Bureau.

Remembering The Alamo

My wife Sweetie and I had the pleasure of making our first visit to San Antonio last weekend. After living in Texas for just over a year, we've just barely "scratched the surface" of places we want to see in the Lone Star State. We were invited by our friend Craig Morris (who happens to be Loretta Lynn's keyboard player--see my previous post) to come see Loretta's show at the Majestic Theatre, so we decided to make a weekend of it. Well, I knew if we were going to go to San Antonio, I had to see the "Birthplace of Texas Liberty," the Alamo.

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. This has implications well beyond limiting fishing, kayaking, and other "on-the-river" recreational activities; the river is a vital source of drinking and irrigation water for many towns, farms and ranches in the Golden Crescent and Coastal Bend regions.
