Capitol Chronicle
Hopwood lawyer Steven Wayne Smith aspires to the Texas Supreme Court.
News Column  October 11, 2002, by Michael King

Capitol Chronicle
Sen. John Whitmire flees exile in Albuquerque and says he'll return to the Senate with or without his Democratic colleagues.
News Column  September 12, 2003, by Michael King
"...He had a better choice."Poisoning the Well All of Whitmire's defenses -- that he's trying to protect the two-thirds rule and Senate civility, that the fight needs to go to the courts, that nationalizing the campaign against Bush is a political mistake -- are at least arguable, but they all collapse before his unilateral refusal to face his fellow exiles and hash his position out directly. He insists that at least four of his colleagues privately supported his action, and after repeated inquiries, he finally told the Houston Chronicle that fellow Houstonian Rodney Ellis is one of the four..."

News Column  April 4, 2003, by Michael King
"...Wolens, Waco's Jim Dunnam, Galveston's Craig Eiland, Beaumont's Joe Deshotel, San Antonio's Carlos Uresti, Houston's Garnet Coleman, and other Dems who led the floor fight against HB 4 have probably long since resigned themselves to a largely empty-handed session.

Would David Dewhurst really know a terrorist if he saw one?
News Column  November 16, 2001, by Michael King
"...Dewhurst himself wasn't quite so vague. The day before Perry announced the appointment (rumored to be a reward for Dewhurst staying out of the GOP Senate race against AG John Cornyn), Dewhurst tipped the Houston Chronicle, adding that (as the Chronicle put it) he had "some experience with terrorists as a CIA agent in South America in the early 1970s." The reporters weren't quick enough to ask: Was that experience with terrorists on behalf of terrorism, or against it?Our Bolivian Friends Just in case you've lost your handy itemized list of CIA-backed insurrections in South America, in 1971 -- when David Dewhurst was (as he told me this week) "a 26-year-old CIA case officer assigned to the U.S..."

HISD rejects making school finance payments
DAILY News  November 15, 2016, by Richard Whittaker

"...2015, he emerged as a finalist for the same job in San Antonio, but decided to stay in Austin after Ott offered him a 5% pay raise and some nice benefits. His name first popped up on the list of candidates to replace departed Houston Chief Charles McClelland in May – not-so-coincidentally, right after he was docked five days pay by Ott for his handling of the Joseph shooting – but denied any active involvement, telling the Chronicle that he had neither applied for the position nor had he contacted HPD about the vacancy...."

"...As reported by "Capitol Chronicle" on June 7, an industry lawsuit against the TNRCC by a group of energy and oil companies calling themselves the Business Coalition for Clean Air-Appeals Group resulted in a Houston air quality study that confirmed many thousands of tons of unreported toxic olefin (a highly volatile form of VOCs) emissions from Houston petrochemical factories.

Surveying the George W. Bush Legacy in Texas
News Column  March 16, 2001, by Michael King
"...But Bush fought CHIP tooth and nail -- primarily out of fear that "spillover" Medicaid rolls for poorer children might climb during the campaign, making Texas welfare reform a public relations failure. "In straightforward, non-bureaucratic English," wrote Molly Ivins and Austin Chronicle Politics Editor Louis Dubose in their book, Shrub, "because he [was] running for president, George Bush attempted to (1) bar 200,000 children from a low-cost federal-state health insurance program, and (2) discourage poor children from receiving free health care to which they are entitled under federal law."..."
