Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

Smuggling 'gone horribly wrong'

Smuggling 'gone horribly wrong'

SAN ANTONIO - A too-familiar story of heat, misery and death played out in a parking lot early Sunday when a desperate plea for help led to the discovery of immigrants - some dead and many others close to it - in the stifling trailer of an 18-wheeler likely headed to Houston. When the 911 call came in just after midnight Saturday from a Walmart employee who had been approached by a man asking for water, police and firefighters weren't expecting the gruesome scene they found: eight men dead in a sweltering tractor-trailer, 17 others near death and still more in severe heat distress. Federal authorities on Sunday charged the driver of the rig, James M. Bradley Jr., 60, of Kentucky with human trafficking for his alleged role in what U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin called "an alien smuggling venture gone horribly wrong." Thomas Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said there may have been more than 100 people in the trailer at one point, with some children as young as 10. Surveillance video showed people driving up to the trailer in different vehicles several times Saturday evening and taking away some of those inside of it, officials said. A Guatemalan Foreign Ministry spokesman told media outlets that two of the survivors crossed at Laredo, where they boarded the truck that ended up in the Walmart parking lot. No names or ages of the deceased or survivors were released Sunday; causes of death will be determined by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office. Homan, the acting ICE director, said as long as he leads the agency, "there will be an unwavering commitment to use law enforcement assets to put an end" to smuggling. "By any standard, the horrific crime uncovered last night ranks as a stark reminder of why human smuggling networks must be pursued, caught and punished," Homan said in a statement.

On Sunday, at the Houston World Series of Dog Shows, she transformed Paisley into a nostalgic remembrance of the 1980s, with homages to Alf, E.T., the Smurfs and Strawberry Shortcake woven into her coat. Once lagging in interest, creative grooming is back on the rise as photos of eye-catching designs proliferate online, a couple of well-placed reality television shows inspire artists and a pride of loquacious poodles plays along. At NRG Park, hundreds of patrons snapped photos and gawked at the elaborate designs, each of which bore a theme. Six groomers entered this year's competition, vying for a top prize of $1,500.Oliver's precision and attention to detail astonished patron Jessica McKenny, 35, of Spring. [...] it's the dogs who become the stars, surrounded by dozens of onlookers, many snapping smartphone photos, a few shouting at them. Today, it's still a small-knit group, with about 15 die-hards traveling the country for major events and locals popping up at in-town shows.

Father, two children killed in seven-car pileup on Sam Houston Parkway

A multi-car crash claimed the lives of a Houston father and his two young children late Friday during a traffic slow-down in a Beltway construction zone. Heywood Freeman and his children - ages 4 and 6 - were killed instantly when a speeding pickup annihilated their small car in a chain-reaction crash. The pickup driver - who may have been going as fast as 90 mph - tried hitting the brakes, leaving a long skid mark before ramming into the family's car. Others involved in the multi-car crash did not seek medical treatment and stayed on the scene to give statements, according to Capt. Megan Howard of HPD's night command. A lifelong Houstonian, Freeman was a Kashmere High School graduate and football player who stayed in town to start a family.

Houston Zoo's rare summer attraction draws big crowds

Gaggles of girls, broods of boys and packs of parents descended on the Houston Zoo Saturday morning for a novel experience. [...] it wasn't any animal that drew the children on a July day with a heat index of 110 degrees. Some stayed in their bathing suits and sunhats while other families bundled up their litters in snow boots and gloves to plow through the 4-inches of snow during the zoo's two-day summertime tradition. While most had inch-long baby carrots, one family brought a hulking 12-inch specimen fit for rabbit royalty. A dad wearing a Houston Fire Department shirt showed his son how to pack a good, dense snowball.

Texans sound off on hotly contested issues in Austin

AUSTIN - Lawmakers on Friday were quickly passing a wide-ranging series of legislation after Republican Gov. Greg Abbott called them to Austin for a 30-day special session focused on hearing bills he favored that were not emphasized during the regular session. Lise Wilson, who had a gender-nonconforming child in grade school and a 20-year-old transgender son, handed out witness registration cards to a long line of people winding down the hallway that had been having trouble registering their positions on bills. "There are teachers all over the state who want to speak out about this bill, and I live 10 minutes away and I can afford parking, so it makes sense for me to come," said Betsy Markman, who registered her opposition to the bathroom bill and the school vouchers policy, which are said to promote free market competition among both private and public schools by allowing parents to choose any school they want to send their child. After more than eight hours of debate and testimony Friday, the Senate Education Committee approved a bill that would create "tax credit scholarships" allowing parents of students with special needs to attend private schools with state aid. Approximately 6,000 students with special needs would be eligible for up to $10,000 scholarships to help pay tuition to private or parochial schools. Parents and teachers spent hours testifying in the committee, with most saying they want the state to refocus its attention on public education or that children with disabilities will lose their right to federally guaranteed services by sending their children to private school. Lawmakers unanimously passed Senate Bill 17, agreeing to expand the duties of a maternal mortality task force that was previously established in 2013. Lawmakers passed abortion-related bills Friday, including a bill that would ban government entities from any transactions to organizations the provide abortions, namely Planne
