On Wednesday’s Houston Matter: Dozens of people have been indicted in the college admissions cheating scandal, including a pair of Houstonians. We get more details from News 88.7 Education reporter Laura Isensee.

Also this hour: We discuss Houston losing its bid to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention, reaction to Mayor Turner’s interview regarding firefighter layoffs, and more in our weekly political roundup. Then, a new report says continued immigration is necessary for Houston’s long-term economic growth.

And Susan Meissner tells us about her historical fiction novel set during World War II, The Last Year of the War, which tells the story of young woman of German descent whose family is sent to an internment camp in South Texas.
