August 30 in San Antonio history…

1856
The San Antonio Herald, a weekly newspaper, published by J. M. West  & J. P. Newcomb, ceases publication.

1940
A city detective chasing a burglary suspect today at Alamo and Market streets fired warning shots into the air in order to persuade the suspect to stop.  One of the bullets entered a northeast window of the children’s room in the San Antonio Public Library and shattered when it hit a steel bar in the window frame, showering glass and bullet fragments onto the startled readers.  No one was injured and the suspect was apprehended when he jumped into the San Antonio River.

1948
Radio station KONO changes frequency from 1400 MHZ to 860 MHz.  It’s still there and simulcast on 101.1 FM.
