  1. In a move that surprised some but didn't with others, HPD Police Chief Art Acevedo recently announced he was leaving the Space City for South Beach & becoming the new police chief of the Miami PD in Miami, FL. In his last press conference, he also got into another testy exchange with NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston reporter Mario Diaz. Texas Monthly had an article detailing how Acevedo managed to piss off everybody. Give me your thoughts on Acevedo's tenure as HPD Police Chief & how he'll be remembered ? Yesterday inside Houston City Hall: Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) announced Troy Finner would become the new HPD Police Chief replacing Acevedo.
  2. Now Lathan is leaving Houston ISD. I don't blame her at all!
  3. Explains why his former co-workers at Sports Radio 610 KILT-AM Houston did NOT like him, including Rich Lord, who was annoyed with Innes' schtick.
  4. Today is the final day on the air for legendary NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston reporter Phil Archer, who is leaving the station after 44 years with the Houston NBC affiliate. The legendary Houston reporter has covered it all ranging from being stabbed & knocked unconscious during the 1978 Moody Parks Riots coverage & other major events. "Phil's the guy you send when your own reputation is on the line," former NBC News Bureau Chief & KPRC-TV Houston reporter Larry Weidman told mikemcguff.com. "He always delivers & he has for nearly half a century. Plus, he's also from Wichita Falls." https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/02/phil-archer-to-retire-from-kprc-2.html TX Governor Greg Abbott (R) issued a message of luck to Archer: Any thoughts on Archer's retirement from NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston after 44 years ?
  5. Tom Koch is retiring from Ch. 13 KTRK-TV Houston after 39 years with the ABC O&O Station he announced at the end of yesterday's weekday morning newscast. His final newscast will be on May 28th. "For nearly 40 years, I've been honored & humbled that so many people welcomed me into their homes every day," Koch said in a statement emailed to mikemcguff.com. "It's been a dream come true for a small-town Wisconsin kid to be part of this incredible station & truly great city of Houston. But I've decided it's time to step aside, turn off that early morning alarm & wake up to a new adventure." The station tells Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com the week of May 24th, will be featuring an on-air celebration featuring Koch & his many achievements will begin, with a final goodbye on May 28th, 2021. Here are some videos of Koch's time with Ch. 13 over the years: Weekday morning newscast from March 6th, 1990. February 2nd, 1991.
  6. Which explains why Rich Lord (formerly of Sports Radio 610 KILT-AM Houston) never liked Innes from the get-go.
  7. I like the Circle 13 logo from 1971 with the long 3 hanging out of the circle.
  8. Unless all of y'all have been living under rocks, there has been increase of violent crime impacting the Lone Star State's largest city including a rising murder rate inside the City of Houston due to what Houston Crime Stopper's victim advocate Andy Kahn calls "bond pandemic". https://abc13.com/houston-murder-rate-homicide-hpd-update-8121534/ https://www.insurancejournal.com/news/southcentral/2020/12/09/593466.htm https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/texas-news/houston-authorities-target-rise-in-road-rage-amid-pandemic/2500231/ https://www.theblaze.com/op-ed/horowitz-houston-accused-murderer-released-from-jail-5-months-later-for-another-murder The weak-kneed progressive criminal court judges as well as the STUPIDITY of radical liberal Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo (D) have let criminals wreaking havoc on the streets of Houston with the progressive garbage of bond reform, bail reform & other liberal weak on crime garbage. Any thoughts on the violent crime ?
  9. When can we expect it to be finished ?
  10. In other words: you don't think Lathan will get the job on a permanent basis ? Now the animosity between Latinos & African Americans inside HISD: this isn't the first time we've seen deep-seated hostility, it's been going on for decades (some cases, Latinos aligned with arch-segregationists).
  11. Several African American elected officeholders in Houston & many civil rights activists have blasted HISD's decision in not giving Lathan the position of HISD Superintendent on a permanent basis, calling the decision "grossly misguided" & "ill-motivated": https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/education-news/2020/11/18/386318/naacp-leaders-call-vote-against-interim-hisd-superintendent-racially-polarized/ https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/education/article/Grossly-misguided-and-ill-motivated-15734253.php The racially-charged hostility inside HISD School Board of Trustees continues to escalate even further.....
