By Bill O'Neil

Charles Barkley's latest rant against the Alamo City has local officials stepping up to defend the San Antonio River--which he has called "a dirty creek."  

"I think he needs to get his facts straight, and understand how important our river is to this community--not only from the point that the river is a great natural asset, it's also a great economic generator for our community--and really makes our community something that's very special" said San Antonio River Authority General Manager Suzanne Scott. 

She pointed to amore than $3 billion dollar economic impact had by the river--which attracts more than 11-million visiotrs per year--supporting more thasn 30-thousand jobs. 

"Charles, stop doing your trash talking and actually come see the river" Scott said.
