From Staff Reports In what has been a long and sometimes contentious journey, town hall meetings have been completed and the next step in bankruptcy proceedings for the Garden Oaks Maintenance Organization (GOMO) is on the horizon, with a hearing set for next week. At a previous hearing in September, a judge ruled that GOMO and the Creditors’ Committee (along with their attorneys) must hold multiple town hall meetings to give the community an opportunity to hear the case’s full scope before any further move was made. The judge also ruled a momentary hold on collecting transfer fees until the town hall meetings took place, which they did on Sept. 22 and Oct. 1. The hearing will take place Oct. 25 at 2:30 p.m. at the courthouse (515 Rusk Ave.) in Court Room #400 as rulings are made … [Read more...] about Next GOMO bankruptcy hearing is Oct. 25
It was a very special homecoming for journalist Dan Rather, who returned to Love Elementary on October 12 where he had been a student more than 80 years ago to participate in a tree planting ceremony and to visit with Love students and staff. “I knew I had come to Love to plant a tree, alongside trees I planted with my classmates so many decades ago,” said Rather. “But this visit turned out to be so much more. I spent time in the classrooms, where the eager young faces filled me with hope.

In the continuing story of the Houston Independent School District’s permanent superintendent search, an initial vote to replace interim superintendent Grenita Lathan caused a major uproar last week before the district walked back the decision. At an Oct. 11 meeting, the HISD Board of Trustees approved a motion 5-4 to replace Lathan as the interim superintendent with former HISD superintendent Abe Saavedra – who ran the district from 2004 to 2009 – before later backtracking on the decision after Saavedra withdrew his name. Trustee Diana Davila, who initially proposed the motion, spoke of Saavedra’s work as superintendent of the South San Antonio Independent School District, where she lauded his work bringing the district away from a state takeover. She said she viewed his skill in … [Read more...] about Drama on the Board
Is social media getting you down? For many in our polarized country, the answer is #youbet. The granddaddy of social interaction – Facebook – has even recently had to defend itself from the claims of former employees like Chamath Palihapitiya, who told a group of Stanford business students last November that “we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.” Not surprisingly, current Facebook executives disagree. BBC Technology details a blog post by Facebook’s director of research, David Ginsberg, who said there was a continuing internal debate at the company about whether time spent on social media was good for people. Ginsberg said there had been “compelling research” that linked depression in teenagers to more time spent on social … [Read more...] about Is social media a true downer?
