San Antonio City Council voted to move forward with plans to spend millions on a well-known mansion. City leaders plan to buy Red Berry Mansion and the 84 acres it sits on. It won't be cheap, though. The city will shell out more than $2.2 million in tax dollars for the east side property. No official plans have been decided for mansion, but city leaders say it could be part of a larger housing development or park.

Fort Bliss chaplain gets 6 months for assault
June 20, 2013 11:51 GMT
FORT BLISS, Texas (AP) -- A chaplain at a West Texas post has been sentenced to six months of confinement after pleading guilty to assault and battery on a female civilian.
Officials at Fort Bliss on Wednesday night announced the penalty for Maj. Geoffrey Alleyne, who's been in the military for 24 years.
Officials say the charges stem from a series of encounters last year between Alleyne and a civilian employee who worked as an assistant to other chaplains.
Alleyne pleaded guilty to assault and battery against a civilian employee on Fort Bliss, making a false official statement and conduct unbecoming an officer.
Fort Bliss Chaplain Lt. Col. Karen Meeker says the Chaplain Corps regrets the incident.
