Check out the great work of Houston Department of Transformation; using beautification to address traffic and safety concerns at Elysian and Lorraine. "Avenue Community Development Corporation in the Near Northside invited eight people to a community leadership institute in Los Angeles in October of 2017. [It] was an opportunity to create a community project and [compete] for a community grant. The eight of us sat down and brainstormed to determine what are some of the problems in the Near Northside and what kind of solutions can we bring to to the table."

    Q+A: Introducing Houston's Department of Transformation
    On January 15, a team of Near Northside residents and community leaders gathered together at the intersection of Lorraine and Elysian streets, fed up with drivers speeding through. Several years ago, a woman driving an armored van hit a young boy and his mother walking across the street there, killing the boy and knocking his mother unconscious.

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. It may surprise you to learn that most pets with three legs live perfectly happy and normal lives.

Solid Waste Department IS NOT PICKING UP: Yard Waste / Tree Waste Heavy Trash Q & A Why are some residents heavy trash being picked up and not mine? Answer from SWD: If they pass by with the Truck carrying the pickup claw, and they feel their truck has enough space available to pick up the heavy trash, they have been instructed to do so while they are in the area, their discretion. They also have an option to take it to their nearest Depository. Due to Harvey SWD has extended hours Monday – Sunday 9am to 6pm . Attached please find the Neighborhood Depositories and Recycling Centers locations/times, rules and regulations. http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/pdf_files/003_rules_07072016_(v13).pdf
