Houston may be hard to read, but it's sure easy to love. #houstonstrong "It's long been a place people go to reinvent themselves, to get rich or to disappear. The flip side of its great tolerance is a certain lack of cohesion, a difficulty in articulating a set of common civic goals. ... As is the case in Los Angeles, the greatest thing and the worst thing about Houston are one and the same: Nobody cares what anybody else is doing. Freedom in both places sometimes trumps community. It also tends to trump stale donor-class taste." #nickelproud

    Los Angeles, Houston and the appeal of the hard-to-read city
    Los Angeles has a certain elusiveness as urban object. The city is opaque, hard to read. Where does it begin or end? Does it have a center? Does it need one? As recent news coverage proves, the city prompts lots of questions - and inconveniently complex answers.

Oprah Winfrey supports March for our Lives and so do we! In partnership with families and students in Fifth Ward and beyond, we are expanding our Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival kickoff parade to support the "March For Our Lives" event. On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival Locally, we invite children and families to meet at the DeLuxe Theater at 11AM on March 24th and march as participants in the Festival Parade in solidarity. Bring your signs, willingness for change, peace and goodwill!

    Oprah Is Donating Half A Million To Florida Students' March For Our Lives
    Now, the student organizers are focusing on the main event. "We want this movement to be heard. It's so close to our hearts," John Barnitt, a 17-year-old junior at Stoneman Douglas and a survivor of the shooting, told Refinery29. "We're really focusing on March 24 - we want everyone to come out and show support.

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.

    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.
