On this edition of Houston Matters, we share your Houston life hacks. We also hear examples fromViula Torgerson, who writes The Heights Life blog, and the Houston Chronicle’sCraig Hlavaty.

Also this hour: A lotcan happen in a week. Some of it good. Some of it bad. Some of it downright ugly. When faced with intriguing developments in the week's news, we turn to our rotating panel of "non-experts" to parse the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of it all. On today's panel: attorney and community education advocate Monica Richart; communications strategist Amber Ambrose; and Vlad Davidiuk, Chairmanof the College Republicans & a Senior Senatorinthe Student Government Association at the University of St Thomas. They discuss voter turnout for Tuesday’s election, a potentially veiled threat about future Final Fours from the NCAA, area gymnast Simone Biles becoming the first woman to win 10 career world championship gold medals, and the return of Krispy Kreme donuts to Houston.

Plus: We talk with Betty Boyd Caroli, author of Lady Bird and Lyndon: The Hidden Story of a Marriage That Made a President.
