Heavy rains delay 3 new Heights restaurants

If Chris Cusack had his way, he would have three brand new restaurants to open this month. However, Mother Nature had other plans. ?It?s been an incredibly rainy year,? Cusack, who planned on having the grand openings for his three new restaurants in the Heights by the end of June. Cusack co-owns his restaurant management company, Treadsack, and Down House, Johnny?s Gold Brick and D&T Drive Inn, which are all located in the Heights. In October, Cusack broke ground on a building for two?

Prominent gay business leaders celebrate SCOTUS ruling

For Michael and Matthew Burrus-Pearce, today's Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality is less about the validation of their status as a married couple and more about their children. "The fact that in the eyes of my daughter and the state of Texas our marriage is no different than any other marriage, it's a huge victory," Michael told the Houston Business Journal shortly after the ruling. Michael is a lawyer for Schlumberger Ltd. and a previous HBJ 40 Under 40 honoree, and Matthew is the chief?

Tomball-based Deep Imaging Technologies Inc. has raised more than $720,000 as a bridge loan to its Series B as it prepares to deliver its technology to market.

Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve pick up the slack as Astros top Red Sox in first game without George Springer

BOSTON ? Having George Springer, Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve as the first three hitters in the Astros lineup might have made for the best leading trio anywhere, no matter the specific ordering. In a 10-inning, 12-8 win over the Red Sox on Friday, the Astros played their first game of many to come without Springer, and the other two easily made up for his loss ? at least for a night. Altuve and Correa had three hits apiece and reached base a combined seven times in the first and third spots respectively, including go-ahead, tie-breaking hits from Correa in both the eighth and 10th innings at Fenway Park in [...]

George Springer confident in recovery plan, says ‘it could always be worse’

BOSTON ? There?s nothing else George Springer can do besides accept his poor fortune, even if he couldn?t be more unhappy. He was contributing at the highest level and something special certainly seems to be blooming in the Astros clubhouse. Now, he might be out until September because of a fractured right wrist. ?It could always be worse,? Springer said at Fenway Park, speaking to the media for the first time since the wrist was broken by an Edinson Volquez fastball Wednesday night. ?I?m going to make the best of the situation I?m in right now and just kind of take it one day at a time, but just make [...]

Report: Federal investigators recommend charges for at least one Cardinals employee

BOSTON ? A day after high-ranking Cardinals front office member Chris Correa was fired reportedly because he hacked into the Astros? computer system, a report from CNN in Washington said that federal investigators had recommended charges against at least one unnamed Cardinals employee. Correa, the Cardinals? scouting director, was fired Friday and publicly pushed back against a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which said Correa had acknowledged accessing Astros? information without permission to determine whether the Astros had stolen proprietary data from the Cardinals. Attorney Nicholas Williams said in a statement Friday that Correa denied any illegal conduct. ?Mr. Correa denies any illegal conduct,? Williams wrote. ?The relevant inquiry [...]

Jake Marisnick, Colby Rasmus nearing a return to Astros lineup

BOSTON ? Jake Marisnick and Colby Rasmus both could be back in the Astros lineup this weekend against the Red Sox, although the latter seems have a better chance. The earliest Marisnick could return to the Astros from the 15-day disabled list technically is Saturday as he comes back from a left hamstring strain. But getting Marisnick to Fenway for a day game on Saturday after he played a night game in El Paso with Class AAA Fresno on Friday night logistically probably won?t work. So the likely scenario after Marisnick?s 1-for-3 night with 3 RBIs, two walks and a double Friday is that he gets to Boston on Saturday, [...]

Alex Presley back with the big league club after holding his own in Class AAA

BOSTON ? Alex Presley was on the bubble to make the Astros out of spring training, and the team rolled the dice by placing him on waivers and sending him to the minors. The 29-year-old lefthanded hitting speedster was a bit behind the 8-ball to make it back to the big leagues, because he was taken off the 40-man roster at the start of the season with others like Domingo Santana and L.J. Hoes on the 40-man roster to begin the season. But unexpectedly, the Astros lost not one, but three of their center fielders for health reasons: Jake Marisnick (who could return this series), Colby Rasmus (who said he [...]

Police investigate three early morning smash-and-grab robberies

At each business, the smash-and-grab burglars drove their vehicles into the sides of the buildings and attempted to remove ATMs and safes from the premises. Four unidentified suspects drove a white van into a Little Caesars off of W. FM 1960 at around 4 a.m. Friday, said Lt. Charles Hoover, with Harris County Constable's Precinct 4 Office. A different Little Caesars at 5700 Little York Road was also hit by smash-and-grab burglars who were able to remove a safe from the restaurant at 6 a.m. Friday. In the third incident, three males in a pickup truck reportedly crashed into a Citgo Quik Mart on the Easttex Freeway early Friday morning and attempted to remove the store's ATM but were unable to do so.

Russian rocket launches much needed supplies to the space station

12:05 A.M. FRIDAY UPDATE: The Progress spacecraft made it safely to orbit, right on time. When it docks with the International Space Station in two days it will deliver 3,100 pounds of much-needed food, supplies and gear for the crew, 1,900 pounds of propellant, 900 pounds of water and 100 pounds of oxygen. ORIGINAL ENTRY: The distant launch of a small Russian Progress spacecraft, laden with more than three tons of supplies for the International Space Station, would ordinarily command little attention. But tonight?s launch from Kazakhstan, at 11:55 p.m. CT, comes after a flurry of mishaps with space station supply vehicles, and now looms large for NASA and the station?s future. Live [...]
