SAN ANTONIO - Technology has brought civilization a long way, and in the case of Alamo Plaza, it is now taking visitors back in time. “There's a lot of detail that goes into this because we are looking at every source of information we can find,” said Dr. Richard Tangum, director of urban and regional planning at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Using piles of old maps, diaries and historical documents, Tangum has spent 25 years to get to where he is today.
SAN ANTONIO - Happy first day of spring! Sort of... Download the KSAT Weather app for iPhone and Android Thursday marks the meteorological start of spring. While most people still go off of the astronomical seasons, many in the world of meteorology use a slightly different calendar.
OLMOS PARK, Texas - Olmos Park, known for its stately and quiet environment, got its name from Olmos Creek. Olmos translates to "elm tree" in English. While the history behind the name is a simple find, the city's connection with World War I is often forgotten. "It's something that's gone down the byways of history," said Jacqueline Davis, director of the Fort Sam Houston Museum. "It's just something that's gotten lost."
After yesterday's humidity and hail, today's will be dry, windy, and warm... There's a high fire danger, especially for those west of SA. We should jump into the upper 80s today.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
