Fri, 21 Oct 2016 21:12:31 +0000

(image) A 10-month state probe into the procurement practices of Workforce Solutions Alamo has ended with a 22-page report describing a practice of preselecting winners on high-profile bids. The Texas Workforce Commission, which conducted the investigation, said the situation was made worse by a "culture of fear, suspicion and retaliation" among staff members. Monitors with the TWC's regulatory integrity division launched an investigation in February after being alerted about possible "procurement improprieties"…

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 20:00:00 +0000

(image) Dozens of former Career Point College students of the now-shuttered San Antonio campus filed lawsuits against the local for-profit vocational school and its leadership — namely CEO Lawrence Earle — this week in Bexar County District court, citing deceptive trade practices and breach of contracts, records show.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:59:44 +0000

(image) There is one thing that becomes immediately apparent when looking out the floor-to-ceiling windows at Vista Corporate Center — USAA will have one heck of a view. The 150,735-square-foot building is the first true Class A office property — according to the Building Owners and Management Association International guidelines — that was developed on a completely speculative basis that has been fully preleased prior to delivery in the past 30 years. And judging from the fifth-floor views overlooking…

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:43:46 +0000

(image) If individual donations to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are a harbinger of what’s to come Nov. 8, then this year’s presidential election could go down as one of the most lopsided contests in the history of U.S. campaigns for the White House. Federal election data show that Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency generated roughly $184.7 million in individual donations from residents of U.S. cities as of Sept. 1, the latest reporting period available. That’s about seven times what…

Career Point CEO warned regulators years ago that new rules could shut down school

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:16:02 +0000

(image) The abrupt closure this week of Career Point College, a for-profit vocational school system based in San Antonio, was not surprising to its CEO, who warned of its potential several years ago. Career Point CEO Lawrence Earle told federal regulators what could happen if new rules were adopted that would impact for-profit educational institutions. Nevertheless, those rules were ultimately approved and went into effect last year. In a letter to the U.S. Department of Education secretary from 2010,…

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:03:17 +0000

(image) With less than three weeks until Election Day, major party presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will no doubt leave nothing back in terms of their fiscal resources as they sprint to the finish. Both candidates have built multimillion-dollar campaign war chests with contributions by Americans in all 50 states. For the most part, those individual donors have been more generous with Clinton. So how much financial support have the donors from each state given to Trump and Clinton?…

But the city still has hundreds of acres in its back pocket slated for new or redevelopment — and a handful of local, regional and national developers are getting ready to pull the trigger. From the 200 acres at the Potranco and Loop 1604 intersection to a 44-acre tract in the heart of Central San Antonio, the slideshow here…
