Houston Goes Retro with Library of “Books” Opening
Not so long ago, people used to do things like “read” by picking up something called a “book.” Sometimes, there were these large collections of books all in one place. I know what you’re thinking.

It’s a Green Christmas for FPD
It’s one thing to issue a ticket for a noise complaint, that beats a more dangerous assignment any night of the week. It’s quite another to come upon a party with beer and marijuana.

Don’t Let Your Mouth Write Checks Your Body Can’t Cash
One teen in Baytown has been slapped on the wrist after apparently making a bomb threat to Texas A&M University. Kids, keep your noses clean and wash behind your ears. This youngster’s parents nearly had a $10,000 fine thrown on them. Stupid… Visit KHOU for more.
