Great news and well deserved. I remember when i was a kid, and the population there was on like 3k. Not much of anything. When i got back down here i was in amazement at how much it had changed.

Sandwiched between the hustle and bustle of Austin, San Antonio and Houston ...

That's funny.

I count five other Texas cities on that list...3 in the DFW area (Keller, Mansfield and Grapevine), 1 in the Houston area (Friendswood) and 1 in the Waco area (Hewitt).

I hadn't seen the actual list however, that is what the anchor (Chris Marrou) said.

Schertz is so close to San Antonio it's practically overlapping. From all the development of San Antonio outward, it's like there is no dividing line.

Universal City, Schertz, Cibolo, and Selma all lie within the same 2 mile square. To me, it's all just San Antonio.

It does kind of make you wonder if they even looked at a map of where Schertz was, let alone if they actually went there
