Highlighting Vets’ Struggles and Celebrating Their Service: The Story Behind the Montrose Bridge Marine

This past March, Marine veteran Mark Perez made the local news by protesting in full dress uniform on the “Be Someone” bridge that crosses I-45 near downtown. Standing at salute until forced to move because of an oncoming train, Perez live-streamed his experience on social media before HPD arrived. He was brought to the VA hospital for a psychological evaluation, and released without a citation.

Bee2Bee Collective Urges Inner Loopers to Host Hives

When you think about local honey, you might imagine the liquid gold harvested from the small towns surrounding Houston, often jarred and sold at farmers’ markets and sometimes spotted on the shelves of major grocers. Bee2Bee Collective founder Nicole Buergers is working hard to change that: in 2015, the former B2B marketer jumped from growing brands to bee husbandry, and she’s urging inner-loopers to put honey bees in their backyards.

Montrose Patrol Profiles: Officer Lee Jaquarya

Lee Jaquarya grew up in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in a neighborhood so dangerous that his parents wouldn’t let him stray beyond the front yard of their house. “I saw a lot of stuff going on, and I would always ask my parents, why is this happening?” Jaquarya remembered. “What can we do to help?”
