‘Pom-Pom Mom’ Found Guilty in Murder Plot

September 3, 1991: On this day, a jury at the Harris County Courthouse convicted Wanda Webb Holloway of the solicitation of capital murder. Holloway had attempted to hire a hitman to kill the mother of the girl that was a better cheerleader than her daughter. In 1989 and 1990 at Alice Johnson Junior High, Amber Heath made the cheer squad, but Holloway?s daughter Shanna did, so Amber?s mother Verna Heath, became Wanda?s target. Before tryouts, Holloway was having secret conversations with her brother-in-law Terry Harper about finding someone to kill Verna. Prosecutors said, ?Holloway believed, Amber would become so overwhelmed with grief that she would drop out of the cheerleading

Comment about Miles' autograph costs jail nurse job

A contract nurse who had been working at the Harris County Jail lost her position after a supervisor thought she was seeking an autograph of the man accused in last week's fatal shooting of a sheriff's deputy. The nurse, who has not been identified, disputed that interpretation of the events but still had her jailhouse credentials revoked, Harris County sheriff's officials said Wednesday. Shannon Miles, 30, is charged with capital murder and accused in the Friday night shooting death of sheriff's deputy Darren Goforth. Investigators said Goforth, 47, had refueled his patrol car at a Chevron station on Telge and West shortly before 8:30 p.m. when Miles came up behind him and opened fire.

Mayor questions value of posting signs on school-zone phone ban

Houston Mayor Annise Parker said Wednesday that she does not see enough value to install signs that would authorize the city to enforce a limited ban on texting and hand-held cellphone use in school zones. Parker said she would prefer that the state institute a general ban on texting while driving. Former Gov. Rick Perry vetoed such legislation. Houston - unlike Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and several smaller neighboring cities - has chosen not to install warning signs that would enable it to enforce a 2009 state law forbidding hand-held cellphone use in school zones. Parker said the decision not to mount the signs also comes down to cost. The city estimates the signs would cost $2.34 million, or $300 each for 7,800 signs.

The Hottest Day in Houston History?

September 2, 1995: On this day, the thermometers at Houston Intercontinental Airport, now known as George Bush Intercontinental, gave a steaming hot reading of 101 degrees, which was high enough to set a new record. The Chronicle stated that the temperature was 10 degrees higher than the average, but it was nothing like the 109-degree record breaking day on September 4th, 2000. Houston rarely reaches temperatures of 100 degrees or more, except for that one summer back in 2011 which was recorded as Houston?s all-time hottest and driest summer. That year, temperature thresholds went above 100 degrees forty-six times! How do you combat Houston?s heat? Tell us in the comments
