July 23, 2020 – Beginning Monday, the Houston Independent School District will deliver a weeks’ worth of student meals directly to three apartment complexes with large concentrations of students in the Wheatley High School feeder pattern.
Offered through Nutrition Services Houston Eats catering service, the delivery service will be provided through August as a complement to the district’s curbside summer meals program.
The program is open to students who are between the ages 1 to 18 and live in the apartment complexes where the food is being delivered. Participants do not have to be enrolled in HISD schools.
- Mondays: Kennedy Place Apartments, 3100 Gillespie St.
- Tuesdays: Kelly Village Apartments, 3118 Green St.
- Wednesdays: Clayton Homes, 1919 Runnels St.
Meals will be distributed from 1 to 3 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. Students, parents, or adult family members may pick up the meals, but all families must maintain physical distancing during pick up.
While the program is currently offered at three apartment complexes, additional locations may be added based on need.

CONGRATULATIONS TO HOUSTON ATTORNEY TONY BUZBEE.
HE ANNOUNCED ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE HIS GIRLFRIEND SAID YES TO GETTING MARRIED.
THE HAPPY COUPLE WERE VACATIONING IN THE BAHAMAS WHEN BUZBEE APPARENTLY POPPED THE QUESTION.
NO WORD JUST WHEN THEY WILL OFFICIALLY TIE THE KNOW.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just ripped into a colleague who allegedly called her a “f***ing b*tch” after a heated debate over a crime bill, saying she is someone’s daughter and by not squarely apologizing, he is not a decent man.
AOC took to the House floor Thursday with an impassioned speech on the impact the words of Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Florida) had on her, her family and other women.
The congresswoman choked up when she said she’s glad her dad, who is not alive, did not hear Yoho’s comments. But, she says, her mom did, and what Yoho said cuts to the core.
Yoho offered an apology — of sorts — Wednesday, saying he regretted “the abrupt manner of the conversation,” but never apologized for the words attributed to him by others. He had earlier denied saying it, but some people on the floor say they heard it, loud and clear.
AOC offered this … everyone says things they regret from time to time, but when the words go beyond decency, a decent person apologizes, and Yoho did not.
She also took issue with Yoho’s comment that he has 2 daughters. AOC said she’s someone’s daughter too, although Yoho didn’t seem to care.
Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal stabbing of a man at 5300 Coke Street about 8 p.m. on Wednesday (July 22).
The suspect, Lloyd Dewayne Jackson (b/m, 52), is charged with murder in the 230th State District Court. A booking photo of Jackson is attached to this news release.
The identity of the victim, 49, is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives K. Collier, J. Stroble and R. Watson reported:
A witness stated the victim and Jackson got into a confrontation in an apartment at the above address that escalated when Jackson stabbed the victim several times and then fled the scene. Jackson later returned and was taken into custody without incident.
Wednesday Mayor Turner honored all city of Houston employees who died of COVID-19.
It was totally blown away when I read the two articles published in the online website named Eater.
The reporters for the site detailed ugly lawsuits between the owners of two of Houston’s most popular restaurants right now.
In one corner you have the partners of Turkey Leg Hut suing each other over allegations of theft, fraud, and mismanagement.
The full details of the lawsuit can be found here at: Eater.
There is also an ugly battle being waged at The Taste Bar and Kitchen also in Houston.
The business partners there are at each other’s throats making a long list of allegations against one another in yet another lawsuit.
Those claims involve embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars, missing valet fees, and stolen cash tips.

ANOTHER SOLDIER DEAD AT FORT HOOD?
A 26-year-old Fort Hood soldier was found dead Friday near a lake about 15 miles from the Texas Army base, Fort Hood officials said Tuesday.
Pvt. Mejhor Morta of Pensacola, Fla., was found in the vicinity of Stillhouse Lake and the Bell County Sheriff’s Department is waiting for preliminary results from an autopsy before releasing any further information, said Maj. T.J. Cruz, spokesman for the department.
Morta enlisted in September 2019 as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle mechanic and has been assigned since May to 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. His awards and decorations include the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon.
Lt. Col. Neil Armstrong, battalion commander, said the unit “truly heartbroken by the tragic loss of Pvt. Mejhor Morta.”
The rapper says Dave hopped on a jet to come see him “doing well” on the ranch, and called him a “God send and a true friend.” The great, warm, friendly visit did come with one slightly awkward moment.
Kanye got Dave, and a few other friends there, to gather around for a video … and then put the comedian on the spot to come up with something funny — y’know, to make everyone laugh.
It was, apparently, pretty early in the day, ’cause Dave said he wasn’t in funny mode yet, but watch … of course they found their way to a punchline.
As reported … Kanye went on a wild rant Monday night, firing off several tweets that accused his wife, Kim Kardashian, of trying to have him involuntarily committed to a mental hospital.
He also blasted Kris Jenner for allegedly influencing some of Kim’s past career moves — i.e. posing for Playboy and selling her sex tape — and compared his life to “Get Out.”
Assuming Dave touched down in Wyoming Tuesday morning — as Kanye inferred — he went pretty far out of his way to help his buddy. We’re told Dave’s been doing “invite-only” comedy gigs near his home in Ohio.
Dave flying out couldn’t come at a better time for Ye — as we’ve told you, many people close to him say he’s in the midst of a serious bipolar episode.
No such thing as a bad time to chill with Chappelle, but this is a particularly good time.
