Are you about to terminate your 2020 leaders?

We're all familiar with Aesop's fable about the grasshopper and the ant. During good times, smart companies act like ants, planning in the summer for the hard winter by retaining and career tracking their future leaders. Other companies are like grasshoppers, living for the moment and giving little thought to the future. High oil prices can cover up a lot of inefficiencies and create less urgency about looking to the future. The news broke earlier this year of oil prices falling below $50 per barrel,?

Op-ed: Eliminating Prop 1 may worsen Houston?s fiscal problems

To address the city of Houston's unsustainable fiscal trajectory, several current and aspiring elected officials have proposed increasing property taxes. They seem to view the city's chronic deficits of more than a decade as a revenue problem? not a spending problem ? despite record levels of revenues most years. Their solution: Get even more revenue. To do so, however, will require repealing the cap on property tax revenues known as Proposition 1, or Prop 1, which is a charter amendment approved?

The entirely too long analysis of Texans topics going into 2015

So Watt are the Texans prospects going into 2015? I ask this 1. because you want to know; 2. all articles about the Texans need to have terrible Watt puns. (photo by Stephanie Stradley) Nobody asked me, but here?s my consultant?s analysis of the 2014 Texans season going into 2015. Consultants have the best gig. They are outsiders who get paid to analyze things, suggest solutions, but don?t have to live with the consequences. I?m doing this wrong. I care about the Texans? results, have no control over them, pay for my season tickets, and ticket prices went up over 7%. Texans 2014 was a year of transition, and I [...]

Dwight Howard tweaks injured ankle in practice

Josh Smith gets a few tips from Hakeem Olajuwon

On Tuesday, Josh Smith spent some time with former Rocket Hakeem Olajuwon working on post moves. It wasn?t the first time the two worked together. Smith said several years ago, he worked with Olajuwon in Sugar Land, but kept it under wraps. ?I have worked with him in the past,? Smith said. ? I really just don?t broadcast everything I do in the offseason so people didn?t notice, but I was one of the first one to be able to work with him and pick his brain on low post scoring.? Smith said he enjoyed having Olajuwon around now to work with. ?It?s always a good chance to keep getting [...]

Bilski, Schubert advance to HD13 runoff

State Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham AUSTIN ? Former Austin County Judge Carolyn Bilski and Caldwell attorney Leighton Schubert are heading to a runoff in the race to replace former state Rep.

A week back from West Africa, Fort Hood soldier found dead

SAN ANTONIO - A Fort Hood soldier who had returned last week from West Africa, where U.S. troops have been working to help stop the spread of Ebola, was found dead outside his home Tuesday, but initial tests showed he did not have the virus. "[...] in time, there is no indication the Ebola virus was involved here, but we are conducting medical tests to ensure there is no threat to the community," Army spokesman Don Peters said. The Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of State Health Services were notified of the soldier's death, but neither organization sent anyone to Killeen. Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Carroll Smith said a hazardous materials team was sent out "because we did not know his cause of death."

Dewhurst bids farewell to the Senate

The Senate voted unanimously to pass SR 2, a resolution honoring Dewhurst, who has served as lieutenant governor for 12 years.

Dewhurst sought re-election to his long-held post, but lost the Republican primary election to Lt. Gov. elect Dan Patrick, who will be sworn in on Jan. 20. Dewhurst said he was [...]

Cruz-allied conservatives in House could turn away from Flores, sharpening GOP divisions

U.S. House Rep. Bill Flores, R-Bryan Republican divisions in Congress show signs of intensifying in the coming weeks as some GOP House members allied with Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz consider breaking away from the Republican Study Committee (RSC), a conservative group led by Bryan Republican Bill Flores. Members of the splinter group told the National Journal that they have been in discussions to form a separate group to exert rightward pressure on House Speaker John Boehner, whom some conservatives consider too moderate. The group reportedly was scheduled to meet with Cruz on Tuesday, although Cruz himself has not been involved in the new organization, according to a Cruz aide. [...]
