Texas State’s Facilities Department will be upgrading the electrical service at its power plant, resulting in a power outage at 10 p.m. tomorrow.  It will affect several buildings on campus but not dorms. The elevators within the affected buildings will be out of service during the three-hour power outage block. For any questions please contact the assistant director of utilities operations.

Today we celebrate the birthday of the 36th President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson, who would have been 106 today.

David D. Shafer will discuss the relationship between Johnson and former president Truman.

Tom Taggart, executive director of public services, says the waste water that reached the river should not pose river quality concerns downstream.
