A case of Ebola has emerged in Dallas. Texas State has been monitoring the Ebola situation in Africa for several months. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends evaluating people who’ve recently travelled from the affected West African countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. Rodney E. Rohde, assistant professor in Texas State’s College of Health Professions, says the hardest part about identifying this disease is that it can mimic many diseases in their early stages.

For the first time in San Marcos history, Hays County and the city are partnering for the National Night Out Kickoff event from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. this Saturday in the Target parking lot.This event is to help promote National Night Out, an annual community police awareness event that will take place Tuesday.

One of the longest running broadway shows, “Rent,” will be performed by Texas State’s department of Theatre and Dance. “Rent” is a rock ballad musical based on the opera “La Boheme.” The show will run from October 7-October 11. Showtimes and ticket information can be found on the Department of Theatre and Dance’s official website.

The intersection at LBJ and University will have one westbound lane open on University Drive, and the eastbound lane will be closed due to intersection reconstruction until October 6. San Marcos is building another continuous flow intersection at Hopkins and Interstate 35. This intersection will be similar to the one at Loop 82 and I-35. Several night time closures will be going on until later this month.
