HISD is implementing a new anti-bullying campaign. But this one’s not aimed towards students. The district's new policy is cracking down on bullying among school employees. The new initiative comes as a Houston based group prepares to host a rally to raise awareness of incidents of cyber-bullying.

We'll discuss these anti-bullying efforts here in Greater Houston on this edition of Houston Matters.

Also: Pride Houston announced this week that the Houston LGBT Pride Celebration will move in 2015 from its 36-year home along Westheimer near Montrose to downtown Houston. Meanwhile, a U.S. bankruptcy judge is poised to rule on whether to approve a sale of a Houston regional sports network. It’s a decision that could result in most of Houston once again being able to see most Houston Rockets and Astros games on TV. And a Houston Fire Department employee is on administrative duty because he posted a disparaging comment towards Muslims on his personal Facebook page.

These three seemingly disparate stories have one thing in common – they’ll all be tackled by our rotating panel of ‘non-experts’ who, every Friday, parse The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Houston news. On this week’s panel: Comedian and Managing Director of Beta Theater Ty Mahany, Texas Originals Producer Paul Pendergraft, and Eric Tung, Social Media Manager of BMC Software.
