On Friday’s show: HISD’s challenge to the TEA’s attempted takeover of its board went before the Texas Supreme Court on Thursday. News 88.7's Dominic Anthony Walsh tells us the outcome could determine who controls the largest school district in Texas.

Also this hour: Houston is holding another gun buyback program this weekend after a mostly successful first effort. The event will be Saturday (Oct. 8) from 8 a.m. to noon at the METRO Park and Ride at 11050 Harwin Drive in Alief. We learn what will be different at this event and discuss the effectiveness of such programs at preventing gun violence.

Then, we consider The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.

And the Bayou City Art Festival celebrates its 50th year this weekend.
