Full Show: Houston Time-Savers, And War-Toys (Feb. 2, 2018)

On Friday’s Houston Matters: We discuss ways to save time in Houston and welcome your time-saving tips. Our non-experts break down The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of the week’s news. And a photo exhibit uses some unusual methods to show the plight of children in war zones.

On Friday’s Houston Matters: HISD is considering recommendations for a number of low-performing schools. We discuss what it might mean for the students and staff of these campuses with Superintendent Richard Carranza.

Then, were dozens of Houston-area properties bought with millions in stolen money? That’s what the Mexican state of Veracruz wants to know. The government filed a series of lawsuits in Harris County this week. We talk with reporters from the Houston Chronicle about the allegations.

Also this hour: Time is a valuable thing when you live in a city as big and as busy as Houston. So, how do you save time in Houston? What little things can save us a couple of minutes here and there? We talk it over with Dwight Silverman and Lisa Gray from the Houston Chronicle, and we welcome your time-saving tips.

Plus: From problems with Galveston’s police pensions, to Texas schools teaching Mexican-American Studies without a textbook, our panel of non-experts discusses The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of this week’s news.

And a photography exhibit called War-Toys aims to draw attention to the plight of children in war-torn countries.
