"...Harris County Homeland Security & Emergency Management director Harris County Judge Ed Emmett issued these statements at a press conference from Houston just a few minutes ago:..."
"...Adler, who asked that Austinites stay home on March 11 when President Barack Obama was in town for SXSW, is now working to convince drivers to avoid being in their cars during rush hour next Wednesday. "This is an attempt to recreate the traffic flow when people stayed home because the President came to town for SXSW, and Austin saw traffic times drop by half on MoPac and by about half that much on our downtown streets," Adler wrote in a press release...."
"...And my best friend’s older brother was kind of the hot-shit drummer at school at the time. And he’d bring home the high-school drum kit over the summer, have it set up in the garage..."
"...Which is why he makes his home in Austin, a city outsiders still think of as the home of Texas blues, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a certain liberal element. But underneath that exterior, like Watson, pumps country blood..."

"...New Orleans and its levees are ill-prepared for the hurricane season that begins June 1. Uncertainty fogs the future of his hometown and unanswered questions abound for thousands of New Orleanians displaced throughout the country..."
"...Or they should. Although they lost this afternoon's getaway game to the Redlegs 9-5, Chris "Remember Me?" Burke did hit a three-run homer, and their record against Cincinnati this year is a more-than-respectable 7-2, meaning against the rest of the league they're, err, 9-16..."
"...But prioritizing local art over all others is bad for business, artistically speaking. You have to leave home to come home..."
"...But he argues he's the best fit for the district. He was raised in a blue-collar, bilingual Laredo family that highly valued education, and in 2004, he and his wife made a major decision: With their third child entering Bryker Woods Elementary in neighboring District 5 and two elder sons heading for Burnet, he would leave his job as a human resources manager at the state comptroller's office and become a stay-at-home father..."
"...Second, because of a clause in the station's contract with Time Warner, Austin's cable provider, if Channel 15 goes dark for a period of 30 days, Time Warner gets the frequency back for its own use. Which means a new home shopping network, or something equally odious, would pop up on Channel 15, and if AMN wanted to come back, it would be relegated to somewhere in the cable channel stratosphere...."

"...Little separates the battles of Bloods and Crips, from, say, the conflicting loyalties of Rangers and Yankees, Cowboys and Redskins, Shiite and Sunni. As the caucasian sexagenarian librarian commented to me, "Leave that hat in your car." Or, if you rode a bike or took the bus to the library, be sure to place your hat in your backpack or European shoulder bag before being asked kindly to go back home and start your journey all over again..."

"...His partner is Luis Ramirez (Rincon), a somewhat ill-tempered poli-sci graduate from Berkeley trying to live down his past as the child star of the oft-rerun '50s TV show, Mexican Mule Boy. Nestled in the mecca of nuclear protest, Sean and Luis meet a similarly mismatched pair of local women: Betty Gurling (Buchanan) runs a clinic which provides health care for the town's bordello; her roommate, Lou Ann Pearlstein (Catmull), moved to Nevada from her mixed-up half-Jewish home in Arkansas and now deals blackjack at a casino..."
"...Especially in the films he directsr, Bill's works are all loosely focused slice-of-life films that tell very human stories. My Bodyguard, Five Corners, Crazy People and, now, A Home of Our Own, are not what you would consider mainstream films..."
"...Michael Urubek says the city council is dreaming if it thinks the new encampment ordinance will succeed in solving the homeless problem. His view may not sound radical until you know who he is: Urubek is the Austin police lieutenant in charge of fielding questions about the city-wide camping ban..."
"...In order to speed up our training, Don suggested that we try to make a short film in his garage. He already had a Disney animation desk at home for practice, and a 16mm Movieola – a film machine for watching films..."
"...Heather Courtney: At least for doc filmmakers, it seems like to get jobs producing or shooting, you have to be in New York or L.A. Ultimately with docs, you go where the story is, but I feel really lucky to work with all the people I've worked with in Austin, and I always wanted to come back here to a home base..."
"...Just in time for Mardi Gras, the Austin heartthrob honey crooner put those satiny vocals to work and released the sweet ode, "My Southwest Louisiana Home," a song commissioned by the Lake Charles Southwest Louisiana Convention and Visitors Bureau for a new video being placed across the planet to promote the warmth and whimsy of the region...."

"...I brought my walking sticks home and leaned them in a corner by the cabinet that holds my collection of old, tattered children's books. When I die, where will all these books go? Will anyone recognize my name scrawled at an early age across the first page of the Better Homes and Gardens Story Book, so politically incorrect it contains stories of both Little Black Sambo and Br'er Rabbit? And what about my collection of yellow pitchers and my weird aluminum platters? Will all this be scattered like the walking sticks of that childless old man, chronicles of a lifetime of travels, a tangible record of his relentless efforts to lug home branches and twigs from Africa, Asia, and the Soviet Republic to store in a barrel by the television in the den, to ponder and stroke and remember when he was too old for globetrotting? Is it reason enough to have children just to have someone to inherit my kitchen wares?..."

"...Whatever they do, it will be attentive, solicitous, considerate of your individual desires as an audience member -- to the point that if you decline to do anything more than sit and watch, they'll accommodate you just as graciously as they do anyone else in attendance. They generate hospitality, these two, treating patrons as guests in their home -- which, in a sense, they are..."
"...Back in July, news broke out of North Austin that a 90-year-old resident of a nursing home had accused one of its employees of abuse. The woman said that as punishment for wetting the bed, the employee would flip the disabled woman over and strike her repeatedly on her backside...."
"...So, you really have to depend on the locals. And the local scene, a big chunk is taken out of it 'cause a lot of people leave town or go on vacation or go home or they don't want to play because it's the Christmas season."..."
"...Kate Shindle didn't end up in Fun Home by accident. The former Miss America, current president of Actors' Equity, author, and lifelong AIDS activist had her own keen eye on the show's development..."
"...The Strokes might get recognized more often if they spent more time at home, because in terms of esteemed New York figureheads, they currently trail only ex-Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and the Yankees. (Actually, after Clemens and Co.'s playoff loss to Anaheim, the Tousled Ones may have moved up.) The New York Times Magazine illustrated exactly how starved the city was for new musical heroes by selecting the Strokes as the sound of the city in its recent "State of New York" issue...."
"...My phone rings and it's doc maker Paul Stekler returning my call from a pay phone at the Newark airport. He suggests I call his colleague, Richard Lewis, who worked with Broomfield on Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer, and gives me Lewis' home phone number, a number different from the one I'd left a message on earlier..."

"...Since her work at a biotech firm included global travel, Fulton used every opportunity to eat at the world's best restaurants. But it wasn't until she tried Modernist cooking at home that Bold Food was born..."
"...25]: Susan comes to the (all too common) conclusion that relaxing the limitations on where, and how, CHL holders can carry their handguns will result in numbers of careless people "playing Cowboy or Soldier," firing their weapons recklessly among the general public. She asks CHL holders to leave our guns at home. The new law only allows licensed CHL holders (all of whom have voluntarily subjected themselves to a background check) to carry openly. I won't open carry because I don't want to make myself the obvious first target of a criminal shooter..."
"...Like so many others, the middle-aged couple had tried to ride out the storm at home, with their two cats. But by last Wednesday, with conditions outside their door looking progressively worse, and with their supply of water and food either gone or spoiled, they had no choice but to flee..."
"...Dear Editor, So, the other day I woke up and there was a prerecorded message from Sara Hickman on my answering machine telling me that I should go out and vote for the smoking ban because it's so gross for her and her bandmates to go play a show and come home smelling like smoke. When was the last time that she had to play a show at a smoking bar? Then I got something in the mail the next day with Sara's face and Marcia Ball's face on it talking about the smoking ban..."

"...Using five songs he originally prepared at home to pitch to another Atlantic artist, Garza's 4-Track Manifesto not only prepared the local's existing fanbase for a fairly radical rock crossover, it also made college radio inroads with "Disco Ball World." Even better, Garza spent nearly two months on the record store circuit, playing in-stores for members of the Independent Retail Coalition - stores that could play pivotal roles early in the retail promotion of Garza's full-length debut...."

"...Leave it to Screamin' Jay Hawkins to predict the future. Check out his "Little Demons," where in one verse Screamin' Jay outlines the fate this generation would not only face but would pass on to their children: "He had steam in his soul for the one he loves/So he had death in his mind 'cause the demon let him go/Gonna run through the world 'til he understands his pain/Somebody help him get the demon home again."..."
"...Lupe Riojas traces his finger along the faded date etched into his cement front porch: July 15, '61. "This is the date we moved in here," he recalls. More than a third of a century has passed since Riojas' home on Henderson Street was part of a sleepy neighborhood running along Shoal Creek near downtown; today the area is humming with activity, and Riojas' dwelling is sandwiched between the Whole Foods/Book People shopping center at the northeast corner of Sixth and Lamar, and the sparkly new GSD&M advertising agency offices across the street...."
