East Aldine’s High Meadows Library is “Starving” for food recipes from patrons

Readers checked out 58,512 books from East Aldine’s High Meadows Branch Library last year.

Unfortunately, a cookbook featuring the best recipes for the best food in the neighborhood was not among them.

Staff at the library have been trying to convince patrons to submit their favorite family food recipes for a local cookbook as part of the annual celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15).

So far, not a single tamale recipe, not one enchilada special sauce, not a single slice of tres leches cake has been submitted.

With all the fabulous cooks (and restaurants) in East Aldine, bragging rights are up for grabs.

Who makes the best tacos? Enchiladas? Chimichangas?

Latest UH poll shows Judge race very close

Beto ahead of Abbott in Harris County

HOUSTON, October 24, 2022 – The race for chief executive in Texas’ most populous county is too close to call, with concerns about crime helping to propel Republican Alexandra del Moral Mealer into a statistical dead heat with Democratic incumbent Lina Hidalgo.

A poll from the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston, released Monday on the first day of early voting, found 47% of likely Harris County voters say they will support Mealer, a political newcomer running for Harris County judge. Hidalgo drew support from 45%.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke is leading Gov. Greg Abbott by eight points (50% to 42%) among likely Harris County voters, while Republican Jack Cagle, the incumbent Harris County Precinct 4 commissioner, leads Democratic challenger Lesley Briones, 40% to 35%.

Lone Star College: 50th Anniversary

Lone Star College celebrates 50 years of academic excellence

Houston (Oct. 7, 2022) – On Oct. 7, 1972, voters overwhelmingly approved the creation of North Harris County College which went on to become Lone Star College. LSC is now celebrating its 50th year of serving students and community providing high quality, affordable education close to home. Starting with 613 students taking classes at Aldine High School to welcoming more than 80,000 students each semester, the LSC story is one of incredible foresight, determination and a commitment to student success.

“50 years ago, forward thinking citizens came together with the vision of creating a college for their community,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC Chancellor. “People like John A. Winship, W.W. Thorne and Joe Airola laid the ground work for what was to become one of the elite community colleges in the nation.”

Thanks to support of Spring, Humble and Aldine Independent School Districts, architectural plans for the new college were drawn and construction began on what became the flagship campus at LSC-North Harris.
