Early voting begins today! Don't miss this chance to have your voice heard. "The midterm elections are often the overlooked middle child of any election cycle. But while they don’t get as much press as races during Presidential election years, the stakes are high."

    Early Voting For The 2018 Texas Primaries Begins: What You Need To Know | Houston Public Media
    Historically, Texans don't turn out for primaries. In 2016, just over 21 percent of eligible Texans voted in the presidential primary. Turnout in midterm primary elections is usually even lower. We want to help make participation in primaries easier for voters - by making the primaries themselves easier to understand.

Thank you to the Northside residents who went to city hall last week to speak about the concerns of our neighborhood and how proposed changes to regulations of boarding houses may impact our community. "A meeting to discuss the proposals at City Hall drew dozens of city residents, boarding house owners, former convicts and civil rights advocates. The meeting illustrated the divide between neighborhood residents worried about public safety and civil rights activists advocating for the poor and prisoners re-entering society. ...Others voiced fears about public safety, particularly residents of the Near Northside, where an 11-year-old boy was killed two years ago while he was walking home from school, and from southwest Houston, where a boarding-home fire last year displaced 29."

    After fatal fires, Houston officials propose stronger lodging house safety rules
    After residential facility fires last year claimed the lives of three people and displaced dozens of others, Houston city officials on Tuesday unveiled several proposed changes to city ordinances aimed at improving oversight of the buildings. A meeting to discuss the proposals at City Hall drew dozens of city residents, boarding house owners, former convicts and civil rights advocates.

According to BluePearl's head of behavioral medicine, Dr. Jill Sackman, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs. Does your cat know any tricks? Tell us in the comments.

    How to train your cat - and why you should
    It's common knowledge that dogs can be trained to obey cues and do tricks, and it's a common misconception that the same is not true for cats. Actually, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs, according to Dr. Jill Sackman, a BluePearl veterinarian and pet behavior expert.

Limb amputation sounds like a scary thing. But for cats and dogs with debilitating and painful disease or trauma to the leg, amputation can sometimes be the best decision for quality of life and pain relief. Most pets with three legs live perfectly happy and normal lives. Dr. Philippa Pavia, a board-certified veterinary surgeon, answers the FAQ about three-legged pets and limb amputation:

    FAQ About Three-Legged Pets and Limb Amputation
    Limb amputation sounds like a scary and life-changing event. But for animals with debilitating and painful disease or trauma of the leg, amputation can sometimes be the best decision for quality of life and pain relief.
