On Friday’s Houston Matters: Gov. Greg Abbott announced Wednesday that bars in Texas can reopen at 50 percent capacity for in-person service next week — as long as their county governments choose to allow it. We get clarity on what will happen next when the governor's order goes into effect Wednesday.

Also this hour: With early voting beginning Oct. 13, Brandon Rottinghaus, co-host of Party Politics, answers your questions about going to the polls.

Then, from an infamous house going up for sale, to the number of ghost sightings in Texas, we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week's news.

And it's been 25 years since the debut of the kid’s show Wishbone. We reminisce with creator Rick Duffield and actor Larry Brandley, the voice of the little dog with the big imagination.
