This morning, mayor Phil Hardberger talked about San Antonio's future, which looks very positive.

He's moving to re-establish a commission to oversee development on the Riverwalk, with an eye toward limiting the influx of big-name chain restaurants and other national franchises.

Now that Swearingen Aircraft has FAA certification for its SJ30-2, the company wants to build an executive jet assembly plant at San Antonio Int'l Airport, on about 20 acres. The SJ30-2 has 360 orders already. The plant will employ more than a thousand workers. The jet's specs are spectacular— cruise speed 560mph, range 2800 miles, single-pilot operation, short-field capability, on and on. Click the photo for Swearingen's website

Kelly McBride, an ethics specialist at the Poynter Institute, a journalism training center, called it a bad move. "The idea is that a newsroom is an advocate for the public," McBride said. "It's Madison's news, not Amcore's news. If you have corporate branding, that is going to taint the whole product."
