Future Tense: Linda Hardberger

Linda Hardberger has her sights set on a watery horizon. “In a year and a half, we’ll be back on that boat,” she says with firm determination. She is referring to the 42-foot craft on which she and her husband, Phil Hardberger, spent more than a year sailing the waters off the East Coast, the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes, back in 2003 and 2004. It was supposed to be the start of retirement for the couple. But, as most people in San Antonio know by now, he was urged by many local leaders to run for...

Though Mary, Queen of Scots, played the game in the 1500s, golf eventually became known as a gentleman’s sport, especially in the United States. But women have never been entirely excluded, and today they are the fastest-growing segment of the industry’s market.

Enthralled audience members often resort to other-worldly references to describe a concert by Voci di Sorelle, a 12- member all-female ensemble of vocalists who specialize in a cappella singing. Phrases like “I felt like angels were singing,” or “I felt like I wasn’t on earth anymore,” are not uncommon.

Heaven On 11 Acres

The hills of Cordillera Ranch are the site of many beautiful homes, which come in all shapes and styles, from ranch to Tudor. Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, quite distant from the community’s gatehouse, is a house that looks as though it was plucked out of the Santa Fe hills and carefully tucked in on a grassy slope that ends up in a dry wash. The home’s faux adobe walls surround a courtyard accessed by an old timber gate. The courtyard is a delightful surprise, full of flowering plants, grassy patches and the sound of water trickling from...
