The Texas Attorney General’s office announced today in a press conference the arrest of 16 suspected child predators. The arrests are the result of a joint sting operation between the Office of the Attorney General’s Child Exploitation unit, the Johnson County Special Crimes Unit, and the Sheriff’s office. The sting targeted individuals who attempt to use the internet to solicit children and then travel with the intent of committing crimes against a minor. The OAG is working to proactively protect children from predators and urges all parents to consider their child’s online safety.

Some Central Texas Starbucks locations are on the brink of selling beer and wine in addition to the already popular coffee beverages. The coffee chain has begun to sell beer and wine in select cities across the U.S., including Chicago and Los Angeles. According to the Austin American Statesmen, Starbucks has several alcohol seller licenses pending approval from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

The city of San Marcos and Amazon are working together to build a $191 million fulfillment center in south San Marcos. According to the San Marcos Mercury, this development would bring at least 350 full time jobs for people in the area. According to the agreement, the establishment will sit off East McCarthy Lane and construction is set to begin before December of this year in hopes of opening by the first of January.

San Marcos City Council will be holding a meeting tomorrow, July 21, to go over the approval of amending the Official Zoning Map of San Marcos which will rezone land off of East McCarthy Lane. This will change it to a Heavy Industrial District to allow Amazon to build their center in that area. Also, discussion of an Interlocal Agreement between the city and Texas State University could be made in order to gain funds for the construction of a reclaimed waterline extension as well as street and sidewalk improvements off Sessom Drive.

You just spent $40 on gas, paid for that dumb online subscription for a Bio textbook, paid your rent and begged your parents to help pay for utilities. College life has never been so bitter sweet.
