Rex the 2-year-old German shepherd is being called a “hero dog” for taking at least three gunshots while protecting his teenage owner from burglars. He is in stable condition at our BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital in Renton. In the intensive care unit, Rex is receiving pain medication, antibiotics, wound care and round-the-clock monitoring.

    Hero dog takes bullet for teenager in Des Moines home invasion
    SEATTLE, Wash. - When burglars violently broke into a Des Moines home mid-afternoon on Wednesday, a teenager hid in a closet and held on to his dog. But Rex - a 2-year-old German shepherd - ran downstairs to protect the 16-year-old. The dog confronted the burglars, who beat him until he was bloody.

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.

🎶Daisy Me Rollin’ (They Hatin’)🎶 is a Motueka and Ekuanot dry hopped Pale Ale that’s part of the Houston Daisy Chain. Our buds at Southern Star had this great idea to brew a batch of beer and share their yeast strain with fellow brewers who would also brew beers and pass on that yeast to even more brewers. SS brewed the first batch of beer and passed the yeast on to Eureka Heights, Copperhead, and us. We each brewed beer and passed it on to other breweries. We will be receiving that yeast again down the road from our homies, Brash, for another beer (different style) which we will barrel age for future enjoyment. The Houston Daisy Chain launch event is tomorrow at Houston Flying Saucer at 7p and there will be numerous events around town featuring multiple Daisy beers. Check out 8thWonder.com/events for more details. This is truly a unique collaboration - we hope you can try all the beers. We plan to. Cheers to the Houston brewery scene and to all those who support us. #8thWonder #HoustonDaisyChain #DaisyMeRollin #TheyHatin

Jury sentences MS-13 gang member to 99 years for fatal SW Houston shooting

MS-13 is a criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles and now has a strong presence along the East and West U.S. coasts and in major cities like Houston.

    Jury sentences MS-13 gang member to 99 years for fatal SW Houston shooting
    An MS-13 gang member was sentenced Tuesday to 99 years in prison for a fatal shooting, according to the Harris County District Attorney's Office. A Harris County jury sentenced Johnathan Steven Guevara, 21, following an eight-day trial where he was convicted for the November 2015 murder of Hector Daniel Diaz, 28.

    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.

Opinion: 4 reasons NFL should look at NBA playoff proposal as future option

The NFL already has travel built into their playoffs because of the way conferences are constructed. Each conference has East and West divisions. So travel is not an issue.

Opinion: Basketball's best fixed All-Star Game by deciding to compete again

Two years ago, the West and East combined for a record 369 points. In 2017, the two teams topped that with another record—374 points—in a game that featured less defensive pushback than a summer league run. Those games were unwatchable and a waste of everyone’s time.

    Opinion: Basketball's Best Players Fixed the NBA All-Star Game by Deciding to Compete Again
    Months of pomp, circumstance and shouty debates preceded this year's NBA All-Star Game, thanks to a history-altering new captains format and the strange decision to protect feelings by not televising the draft of the rosters.
