Houston Matters

Full Show: Sutherland Springs Anniversary, And Houston’s Changing Skyline (Nov. 5, 2018)

On Monday’s Houston Matters: We learn how candidates are spending the final hours of campaigning. And we check in on Sutherland Springs a year after the mass shooting there. Plus, we examine ways local governments can change to keep up with Houston’s growth. We tour downtown to learn the stories behind Houston’s skyscrapers. And Jeff Balke updates us on local sports.

On Monday’s Houston Matters: Texas candidates have just a few hours left to make their cases to voters before Election Day. We learn how they’re spending their time. And today marks one year since more than two dozen people were shot and killed at a church in Sutherland Springs near San Antonio. We talk with Texas Public Radio’s Joey Palacios about how the South Texas community is faring a year later.

Also this hour: A new report from Rice University says, as Houston continues to grow, its local governments are struggling to provide services to residents in an equitable and cost-effective way. We find out how the report is meant to help Houston-area officials consider reforms to ensure long-term stability.

Then, how many of Houston’s skyscrapers can you name? We take a tour of downtown to learn the names of — and stories behind — some of the iconic buildings that adorn our skyline.

Then, we discuss developments in Houston sports with Jeff Balke.
