  1. Did anyone else notice KTRK ABC 13 updated their newscast openings with different theme and VoiceOver. I noticed the change during all of their newscast yesterday. I wonder why the subtle but big change.
  2. I’ve been a fan and viewer of KTRK ABC 13 for years. I’ve seen many changes throughout the years. Does anyone else think it’s time for a Graphics Package revamp or update!? The current package debuted in April 2015. It’s too generic in my opinion, a mix of skyline/city shots and modern would be a great fit in my opinion!
  3. There could possibly be a new HEB going up on the northeast corner of FM 2920 and Gosling road in Spring. There has been talks between HEB officials and Bridgestone Mud officials on the nearly 11 acre tract of land before the company purchases it. The main concern with the tract of land is the detention pond that takes up a good portion of it. HEB wants to minimize the size of the detention pond for the store's parking lot. There is no word yet on the size of the future store or it's amenities. There will be a gas station and car wash. I found this new location a bit odd being that the nearest HEB at FM 2920 and Spring Cypress is only 3 miles east of this tract of land. Another new location just opened last year at Kuykendahl and Creekside. A new store will also open at Boudreaux Rd. and Champion Forest Dr. next year. This Texas born grocery chain is definitely growing at a rather fast past.
  4. Yeah it appears they seem to be either updating or rebuilding the set. If this is true, they are way overdue for a new set. The new graphics are great but the set needs to match the new updated graphics and the current set matches the old graphics.
  5. Today as I was watching the 11AM newscast I noticed brand new graphics and a new guy doing their voiceover. The graphics are really nice, sleek, modern and contemporary. It's a really nice new look for KTRK. This is the first time since 2007 that they received a whole new graphics package. The guy doing the voiceover sounds way more modern and up to date than the previous guy. Way to go ABC 13!!
  6. Construction is moving right along!
  7. Grand Opening date is scheduled for Wednesday October 8, 2014 at 6am. Once again this 100,000 square foot store will be considered an HEB "UP" format store. For those of you who have been to the Fairfield Market HEB, the store's layout will be very similar but about 5,000 square feet smaller in which you probably really wouldn't be able to notice. The new Grant Market HEB will have an expanded beer and wine department and also a Cafe on the Run which is the in-store restaurant. The new Woodlands store at Creekside Market will be the exact same layout as the Grant Market store but will have a different elevation. The Woodlands store opens two weeks later.
  8. This new HEB will be the 5th store in the Woodlands area. The store will be approximately 99,000 square feet which makes it the 2nd largest of the 5 stores with Woodlands 4(FM1488/Kuykendahl) topping 105,000 square feet. Of course this store will be a full functioning HEB which means it will have all the bells and whistles. -Pharmacy -Gas Station -Bakery and Deli with cheese shop -Meat and Fish Market -Healthy Living Department -Beer and Wine section -No word yet on if it will have a Café on the Run (HEB Restaurant) The store will lay in between Creekside Forest and West New Harmony Trail west of Kuykendahl Rd. Construction will begin early 2014.
  9. HEB has land purchased for its 4th Cypress area location. The store will be built on the northwest corner of Spring Cypress and Grant Rd. The site is adjacent to a Cy Fair ISD elementary school. The store will be 99,000 square feet. The store will be a full functioning HEB, which means it will feature a pharmacy, gas station, full service bakery, deli, meat and fish market, beer and wine section and a healthy living department. No word yet on if the store will have a Café on the Run which is the HEB restaurant in some stores. Construction will start early 2014. HEB has its Cypress and Fairfield Markets off of 290 as well as the Jones and West store in the Cy Fair area.
  10. If anyone else watched the news at 6 today it was very different. Dave Ward and Gina Gaston anchor the first half, and Erik Barajas and Illona Carson anchor the second half. It's very interesting. They even have their own little talent montage graphic along with some new segment graphics for Tim Heller and Greg Bailey. Overall it's very nice, very non traditional format, great job KTRK!!, what's next!!!
  11. Ok, so it's time for the whole graphics package to be changed completely. KTRK has had these graphics since 2007. They are nice but it's time for a change in my opinion. Anyone know when they plan to change them?
  12. It seems like ABC 13 has went back to the old music theme for the 6 and 10pm talent montages. I guess the change came with the addition of Greg Bailey, the new sports director.
  13. This new HEB Fairfield Market on 290/Mason will be approximately 108,000 square feet. This store will be considered a "up" store. It will feature 18 straight lined registers at checkout, cafe on the run, Healthy Living department and a wide selection of organic/specialty items.The store layout is the same as the new Sugarland Market and Woodlands 4 Northern Market stores which opened last year. Grand Opening date for the new Fairfield Market is set November 14, 2012 at 6am. The new HEB Jersey Village on Jones/West will be a transformed former Randalls topping 65,000 square feet. It will be considered a "core" store. This store will have no Healthy Living department, no Cafe on the run, not as big of selection of organic and specialty items. The store will feature 11 straight lined registers and a fully functioning business center and pharmacy. Grand Opening is slated for mid October 2012. HEB also has land already purchased for a 5th Woodlands store near Sawdust and Riley Fizzel Road and a 2nd Pearland store on Pearland Parkway. There is no word yet on when construction will begin.
  14. The new HEB opens Wednesday August 31, 2011 at 6am. The new store is a prototype design for the company which means it's a test design. The store consist of 104,000 square feet, the largest of the now 4 HEBs in the Woodlands area. Key elements of the store include a larger Produce department, larger Healthy Living department, Cafe on the Run, overall better layout, Larger Central Checkout, 18 straight lined registers, and beautiful exterior. This layout and store format was also used on the new Sugarland store which opens in September.
  15. Seems like the Talent Montage going into the first commercial break has been revamped. Great graphics, and anchor pictures, Looks very professional and just awesome.
  16. I am and will always be a proud viewer of 13 Eyewitness News, but am I the only one who thinks they need to change their opening Theme and Graphics. They've had the generic "First in HD" opening since they debuted High Definition back in 2007. The Graphics and Music Package are great, all their graphics for that matter are tremendous. They just need a new opening with new graphics and narration without the "First in HD", everyone knows now they're HD, and plus all the other stations are now HD as well. They have everything else great anchors, reporters, producers,set, new newsroom, graphics, and music, now we just need a new opening for our newscast.
  17. Elementary School #28 will now be located on Spring Stuebner Rd. east of Rothwood Rd. in the new Park at Klein Subdivision. The school will be designed by PBK Architects, the same firm who designed the new High School #5. I'm assuming the architecture will be outstanding given the way High School #5 looks. Klein ISD will use this same design for the next new 4-5 Elementary schools in the future. On another note both the Klein Oak and Klein Collins additions are complete. Teachers at Klein Collins were allowed to move into their new classrooms over the past two weeks. A marquee was finally constructed in front of Klein Collins as well this summer. Both additions were designed by RWS Architects, the original architect of Klein Collins High School. Klein Collins High School is now 602,000 square feet, and Klein Oak High School is now near 565,000 square feet with the new additions.
  18. Construction on Ulrich Intermediate is moving along well, All electricity is on and the complete exterior is finished. The Klein ISD School naming committee is recommending that Elementary School #28 be named Bernshausen Elementary School. One board member made the suggestion that if the name Prarie Hill were to be choosen, it should replace the name for Blackshear Elementary and name Elem.#28 Blackshear since the original Prarie Hill Elementary is closer to Elem. #27, Blackshear. The name recommended is not final though. Final Names to be choosen -Bernshausen -Clow -French School -Fritz -Fuchs -Heiden -Hofius -Kies -Kothmann School -Oak Grove -Prairie Hill -Spell -Zwick
  19. Construction on Blackshear Elementary and Elementary #28 will begin in March of next year. Blackshear is located literally 1 1/2 miles southeast of Korhville Elementary on Lacey Road. Elementary #28 will be located near the intersection of FM 2920 and Huffsmith Korhville Road on Mahaffey Rd. Both schools will be a repeat design of Benignus, Frank and Mueller Elementary Schools with slight modifacations. Both facilities will serve a capacity of 850 students with over 115,000 square feet of instructional space. If you haven't passed by Ulrich lately, Nearly the entire building is bricked. The Feild House is being constructed.
  20. Option 1 would have all of Gleannloch Farms including north of Northpointe Dr. going to Doerre Intermediate. Option 2 would have Gleannloch Farms north of Northpointe Dr. going from Krimmel to now Ulrich. Gleannloch Farms south of Northpointe Dr. going from Doerre to now Ulrich. Option 2 has the entire subdivision of Gleannloch Farms going to Ulrich. It could go either way, but like I said more people at the meeting favored option 2 over option 1 for a number of different reasons.
  21. Actually I was able to attend. The meeting went very well. Many questions were addressed. There are 2 zone options for Ulrich. Most of the people at the meeting thought option 2 was a better fit fo the district. Option 1 will relieve Schindewolf, Hildebrandt, Krimmel and Doerre. Option 2 will relieve Schindewolf, Hildebrandt, Krimmel, Doerre and Wunderlich. With option 1 subdivisions now in the Schindewolf zone like Forest North, Forest Ridge and Mossy Oaks would now go to Hildebrandt but then return to Klein Collins instead of Klein Oak. Thats not good. With option 2 some kids south of FM 1960 would now go to Kleb instead of Wunderlich, but go to Klein Forest instead of Klein. Also subdivisions now in the Schindewolf zone like Enchanted Oaks and Cypress Forest will now go to Strack. In my opinion option 2 is way better.
  22. LOL I theveryone has noticed that, but I do love her style of anchoring.
  23. What I didn't know she was pregnant. She didn't look pregnant last time I saw her on air.
