League City council today will consider creating an ordinance that would prohibit the chaining or tethering of dogs except under certain circumstances, among other measures meant to improve animal welfare.
All week leading up to the Monday Night Football matchup between the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos, ESPN cleverly utilized some late-1990s post-grunge soft rock to tease the game, which represented quarterback Brock Osweiler’s return to the home field of his former team.

Great news. Since the addition of the Galveston County Veterans Treatment Court under the leadership of Judge Mark Henry the county has quietly helped countless suffering veterans, spouses and dependents from the combat effects of PTSD. Most veterans deny help and end up self-medicating, drinking and other self/family destructive patterns where eventually end up as a jail statistic instead of receiving the help they desperately need. It's great to live in a county where the leadership - from the top down - take ALL infractions to a higher level of help....not just penalty.8 months ago
The fault is not the city at all. The city is overwhelmed with code violation reports. The problem is 100% the property owner. When you need a CEO to carry self-defense items when speaking with residents thats where the problem is --- the property owner. Don't agree? Go for a ride-along for 1 day. 8 months ago
If you take the time to read the city Charter, codes and property laws you'd see the property owner is responsible for the sidewalks and gutters. The city will do the labor - which is 75% of the cost and we already pay their wages and equipment - and the property owner pays materials. Great deal.8 months ago
