Dentistry with a Heart returns with free dental care Feb. 10

Dr. Donnelly and San Marcos Gentle Dental will host its 4th annual Dentistry From The Heart-For the Love of Chance event – providing a free day of dental care to more than 75 residents.  

As a growing number of Americans lack dental insurance, Donnelly believes this is a great way to address many health problems and give back to the community.  At last year’s event, San Marcos Dental provided more than 70  people in the community with free dentistry valued in excess of $30,000.  The goal is to provide dental treatment to even more of those in need this year.

Anita Miller -  Managing Editor

San Marcos Police arrested five Houston residents for burglarizing a pharmacy on Medical Parkway early Friday.

Officers responded to a burglar alarm at 3:52 a.m. and found a car with its engine running and license plate covered.

The five suspects apparently fled in different directions. Over the course of “the next few hours,” the city says police looked for them, arresting one with the help of a K-9 officer in a field behind the Hays County Government Center. Other were located along Broadway Drive.

Trauth tackles campus climate with initiatives

Joshua N. Morrison - Special to the Record
Texas State University and President Denise Trauth are working to build a more inclusive campus environment as a new semester begins.
Trauth began the semester expressing her continued commitment to dialogue, safety and inclusion in a campus-wide email. Her message came after a fall semester marked by several controversial events involving diversity issues.
After the election of Donald Trump, flyers calling for the arrest and torture of pro-diversity university leaders were posted on campus. Their origin remains unknown.

Dog that killed baby put down

A dog involved in an infant fatality late last month has been euthanized at the owners’ request.
 The dog was euthanized Tuesday after the owners submitted surrender paperwork and a request for euthanasia to the San Marcos Police Department. SMPD forwarded the request to San Marcos Animal Control, which carried out the euthanasia based on the results of its own investigation and from information gathered by SMPD.
