Meet the Fast 100: Houston lighting company to expand nationwide

Houston-based Neutex LED Lighting plans to expand to 25 new markets by 2016, but it won't be easy. Rather than expand into markets where demand for LED is high, Neutex, a provider of energy-efficient lighting design and manufacturing, is looking to open franchises in areas that aren't as educated in "green" lighting, said John Higgins, president and CEO. Last year, Neutex opened two satellite offices in Mississippi and New York, which Higgins described as difficult markets to tap into. "We started?

Jed Lowrie may see limited playing time in adjusting to return

Jed Lowrie contributed Sunday with a double and a run scored, but manager A.J. Hinch said he may rest the veteran infielder Monday at Arlington as he continues to adjust to playing after a long injury absence. ?I probably won?t go more than three days in a row without giving him a day off,? the manager said. ?Some of that is psychical for Jed. Some of it is juggling how to play (Luis) Valbuena, (Chris) Carter or (Marwin) Gonzalez. ?We were thin earlier in the year, and now we seem to have a bunch of guys that deserve more playing time, and so to do that, some guys are going [...]

Even with Springer out, the Houston Astros still have incredible offensive and outfield depth

Astros manager A.J. Hinch normally avoids bulletin board-style pronouncements, but he was adamant Sunday that the Astros, even without George Springer, may have one of the best outfields in baseball with the addition of Carlos Gomez. With the Astros? current configuration, which Sunday included Jake Marisnick in right and Gomez in center, plus Colby Rasmus, Preston Tucker and Evan Gattis, ?When (George) Springer gets back, we can be one of the best outfields in baseball, and we might be there already,? Hinch said. ?We can really cover ground. We can chase down any fly ball that stays in the ballpark. We don?t have much room in left field, but it?s [...]

The Houston Astros have a good problem at catcher position

Most managers would love to have the quandary that lately faces Astros manager A.J. Hinch over whether to start Jason Castro, who has a six-game hitting streak that includes a walkoff homer, or Hank Conger, who delivered the team?s first grand slam of the season Saturday. ?It?s a good problem to have,? Hinch said. ?It?s always a matchup (decision). It can be defensively, who I want to handle the pitcher that particular day, or if there?s an extreme matchup one way or the other offensively. ?But when they?re both swinging the bats well, it?s hard to keep them going without alternating them. ? I lay awake at night wondering what [...]

Familiarity brings comfort for Johnathan Joseph, rest of Texans defensive backs

This is cornerback Johnathan Joseph?s fifth training camp with the Texans and his 10th overall. He?s starting opposite Kareem Jackson for a fifth consecutive season. ?The more you have familiarity with each other ? me and Kareem are seeing through the same set of eyes ? the more comfortable you are having that guy on the other side,? Joseph said. ?Kareem?s a great leader, and he?s always pushing me each to get better.? Since the start of last year?s training camp, general manager Rick Smith and his personnel department have done a solid job of adding depth at cornerback, including first-round pick Kevin Johnson. ?They did a great job adding [...]

Texans report: Cliett, Nix dealing with injuries on Day 2 of training camp

Rookie outside linebacker Reshard Cliett left the practice field on a cart and taken back to NRG Stadium after suffering an apparent right knee injury. Also, second-year nose tackle Louis Nix III repaired to the Methodist Training Center possibly because of heat-related issues.

O?Brien said, ?but he came back and passed the conditioning test, which is a big, big accomplishment for him. He?s worked very hard this offseason. I think if he keeps stringing days [...]

Term limits, repealing equal rights ordinance on council agenda

City Council on Wednesday will consider repealing Houston's equal rights ordinance and switching term limits from three two-year terms to two four-year terms - both items that could end up on the November ballot. That Mayor Annise Parker placed the equal rights ordinance on the agenda comes as no surprise. Last month, the Texas Supreme Court ordered the city to repeal the ordinance or put it on the November ballot for voters to decide the law's fate. The opinion followed a district court ruling that affirmed the city's decision last summer to reject conservative opponents' petition to send the law to voters. On Wednesday, City Council will first consider whether to repeal the ordinance.

Members of the media gathered outside both the Collin County Sheriff's Office and the county courthouse early Monday, hoping to catch a glimpse of Paxton turning himself into authorities.

Marvin Zindler Helps Shut Down Chicken Ranch Brothel

August 3, 1973: On this forgotten day, the infamous Chicken Ranch brothel in La Grange was shut down thanks to the colorful and always entertaining local reporter, Marvin Zindler.
