Today we take a moment to celebrate the life of Emma Primas, a longtime member of her Fifth Ward church and Settegast-area civic club as well as the National Council of Negro Women's Houston chapter and the NAACP. Primas, whose electoral history as a black woman included being denied the vote and paying a poll tax to access a ballot, presided with dignity and humor over her descendants – including one child, four grandchildren and extending to five great-great-great grandchildren.
The big game is tomorrow... we are referring to the Puppy Bowl! Will you and your pets be watching? Don't forget about the kitty halftime show.
