The San Antonio Spurs' season opener was delayed for 50 minutes Friday night when a fireworks display triggered the Alamodome sprinkler system, drenching fans, players and coaches. A high-pressure water cannon at the back of the stadium's eastern lower grandstand shot water out over the crowd shortly after the fireworks display that accompanied player introductions for the Spurs' game against the Golden State Warriors.

Ten San Antonio officers were arrested Thursday for allegedly providing protection for cocaine dealers. The arrests stunned the Texas city but served as a warning that drug corruption is not restricted to south of the Rio Grande, police said. "We are sickened and shocked by the inexcusable actions of these officers," San Antonio Police Chief Al Philippus told reporters. "My badge was shining brightly before I heard about this. It's tarnished now."

Two years after suffering poor attendance and resulting financial disaster at Los Angeles, the United States Olympic Festival, which begins here with opening ceremonies tonight, appears to have been revitalized.

Even the label on a long-neck bottle of Lone Star beer, this town's home-grown libation, is a declaration of independence of the kind peculiar to Texans: It claims the brew is "The National Beer of Texas." Well, if Texas were a sovereign nation--as it was from 1836 to 1845--then this part of the state would certainly be its version of California, at least as far as the emerging economic base.

Come to this South Texas city, home of the Alamo and the birthplace of the fajita, and you'll discover a place where, as many locals put it, "you feel good about being Hispanic." Mexican and Mexican American architects have designed the new downtown campus of the University of Texas and the new public library, a huge cube painted "enchilada red."

The City of San Antonio is in a dither, predicting that it could lose thousands of jobs, and warning that its citizens might be able to bathe only twice a week. The environmentalists are victorious, with the preservation of the endangered fountain darter and the Texas blind salamander all but assured. There is dark talk of a conspiracy, a "Chinatown" plot with a Texas twang. All in the name of water.
