  1. Hempstead Truck Stop Closed

    My understanding is they did not pay their liquor license and couldn't keep up with the lease payments. One thing leads to another and Exxon shuts the place down. I believe Exxon is still interested in someone to lease the location. Denny's tried to shrink the menu with just the basics but couldn't generate enough revenue. I don't have facts beyond that on the Exxon, but locals that I know have often talked about questionable sells practices, expired goods, improper temperature controls, pump equipment problems, and I speak from experience that it was one of the dirtiest places I have ever been in.

    KISD Facebook posted a new aerial tour of Klein Cain.

    I love the roster and pictures, thanks for sharing. The weight of the boys is interesting and the Yell Leaders is classic.

    I agree. Where's a good minor league baseball mascot when you need one? This is why I would like for them to pick Hurricanes with Purple. It's the most non-stock out of the choices. But then you have to deal with the Cain Canes and the dance squad being the Cain Candy Canes. Unless the mascot is a giant purple Candy Cane carrying a Big Ass Fan to provide gale force winds...then we're talking!!!

    What was explained to me by several administrators during the construction of new high schools for Tomball and Cy-Fair was the "cost-to-create and maintain." In their research, they found it easier to consistently reproduce basic colors and basic mascots over time (uniforms, paint, logos, letterhead, etc). Also, one individual involved in the Tomball Memorial development called these generic choices the "fear of lawsuits from the politically correct." Honestly, you can point your finger in any direction as to why. I don't think many of the kids knew they were going to be given an opportunity to vote. I truly believe if the kids in all these intermediate schools knew, they could have started a bigger movement for the Gorillas (#harambe) and that would have been awesome.

    Announcement for colors/mascot to be made by first part of next week according to Principal Patin.

    Update: @vsbcade was partially correct. Three options for mascot and colors. These were presented to all future Cain freshman at the appropriate intermediate schools. The kids were allowed to vote. A heavy write-in vote for Gorillas was also occurring it seems. Mascot choices: Hurricanes Wildcats Mavericks Color choices: Crimson/Yellow/White (Washington Redskins) Purple/Silver/Black/White (Baltimore Ravens) Navy/Orange/White (Denver Broncos)

    According to @vsbcade, mascot is down to hurricanes or Wildcats. And the colors will be purple, white, black, silver.

    Apparently there are small student focus groups at all schools filtering into Cain. These groups were shown three colors and three mascots for their opinions. Students will not pick color and mascot, but these small focus groups may help influence the final choice.

    Klein representative, "It is too early to assume children will be allowed to decide mascot and colors for the new Klein Cain High School. Once appointed, the new principal will make that decision." Principal = Nicole Patin

    Klein Cain *rumor for mascot is an old bald man *rumor for colors is khaki and gray

    High School #5 will be named at the Aug. 8 Board meeting. For those of you riding the recent rumor train of Cain Memorial High School, it was mentioned that there is a bylaw which makes the name Klein mandatory for all high schools. I have no idea if that is correct or not. Either way, we will find out soon.
