San Antonio high school student uses skills learned in classroom to fix pipes at home
SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio high school student took what she learned in the classroom and put the skills into action when the pipes in her family’s home burst. Sinha said her daughter, 15-year-old Meadow Quigley, knew exactly what to do when she saw their pipes had burst. “We went to Lowe’s, and we got like just some primer and cement from the plumbing section. “She has some social anxiety, and so I see her being unsure of herself on a lot of things. Quigley will be graduating with plumbing, pipefitting and welding skills, plus certifications.
Love Lock Fence finds temporary new home in San Antonio due to bridge repairs
SAN ANTONIO Nothing says commitment quite like taking a lock to a bridge and tossing a key into the river. The Love Lock Bridge in San Antonio is a must-visit destination for couples near and far; however, beginning next week, the Love Lock Fence will be moved to a temporary, new location due to bridge repairs. The fence, which is originally adjacent to the San Antonio River between the Kallison Walk Bridge and Market Street downtown, will be moved to the Kallison Walk Bridge, according to Public Works. The new location is still in close proximity to the downtown Courthouse Wedding Chapel, where couples that get married there then go to Love Lock Bridge and lock-in their love before throwing their key into the San Antonio River, according to officials. The previous location of the fence will be closed until the bridge can be repaired, officials said.
