“Just got off the phone with President Trump who has approved our Major Disaster Declaration request. White House spokesman Judd Deere previously said California’s disaster declaration request “was not supported by the relevant data” needed for approval. Newsom asked for the major disaster declaration on Sept. 28 to cover fires in Fresno, Los Angeles, Madera, Mendocino, San Bernardino, San Diego and Siskiyou counties.

KSAT Flavor Favs: Ray's Drive Inn
SAN ANTONIO – It's all about tradition and family at Ray's Drive Inn. Ray Lopez opened the place in the '50s but later, because of his health, sold it to his younger brother, Arthur Lopez. First called crispy tacos, Arthur Lopez later renamed them Puffy Tacos, and Ray's Drive Inn is known as being the home of the original Puffy Taco. Arthur Lopez took the Puffy Taco very serious and would have it trademarked in 1992. Next year will mark the 60th anniversary for Ray's Drive Inn, and the Lopez family hopes the place continues to have a lasting legacy and always be known as the home of the Puffy Taco.
