September 8 in San Antonio history...

1960
Sears on Romana Plaza opens their new three-level “ultra-modern” parking garage. (The downtown Central Library still uses this garage.)

1962
The new city-county jail opens.

1966    
"Star Trek" premieres at 7:30 p.m. on WOAI Channel 4.  The San Antonio Light describes the show as a "Twilight Zone-type science fiction series [that] aims at children and adults, with a weird opener about an alien body on a strange planet who assumes shapes of men or women in its quest for life-giving salt. The puzzling plot teeters on the absurd, but walkie-talkie devices, colored space food , laser beam guns, and the pointed ears of spaceman Spock (Leonard Nimoy) will appeal to the youngsters.  The star of the series is normal-eared William Shatner, who plays a no-nonsense space ship captain."
