Sheds in residential neighborhoods usually don't end up being the subjects of news stories, much less the Current's most-read story of the week. Unless, that is, they happen to be listed for sale with a $250,000 price tag.

Thanks no doubt to unease over San Antonio's gonzo home prices, a story about a pricy shed tucked into a near East Side neighborhood ended up being our most-visited article. Reading social media comments about the piece, there's clearly a sense of outrage over just how quickly local real-estate valuations have shot up.

Other top-performing stories for the week included a piece on longtime TV news anchor Isis Romero landing a new gig at the same station where her hubby works and  a profile of Cat Palace, a local operation that restores classic skateboard decks, makes colorful art prints and a whole lot more.
