KHOU-TV (Channel 11) will introduce their newest anchor this evening and her name is Lisa Hernandez.  She’ll co-anchor the 5 pm and 10 pm weekday/weeknight newscasts.  She is a California girl and was a TV news reporter and weekend anchor for the ABC affiliate in LA.  KHOU has been promoting her the past couple of weeks or so and you can also check her out on the station’s website where you can find out that she likes coffee, Diet Coke, owns two dogs, and is an avid runner as in marathon running.

She comes across as sharp and very professional.   It’s a smart move for the station to bring her on board.   They didn’t do it without checking out the demographics of the deal.  Hernandez certainly has the potential to shoot right on up there and be the top Latino/Latina personality in H-Town.  I don’t think the station would mind if that happened. 

I’ll be rooting for her.  Check her out here.

Today’s Chron has a piece on Lisa Hernandez.  Check it out here.

The Chron’s E-Board had a take yesterday on sleazy Judge Shelton and the ‘’good old boy” system over at the courthouse that Chron columnist Lisa Falkenberg has been writing about.  Check it out here.

These two players combined for 23 RBIs in a 7 game World Serious. Who am I talking about?

Let’s see now, on Friday I received an Ellen Cohen mailer.

Also on Friday I received the Planned Parenthood Action Fund mailer.

Saturday I got a CM Jolanda Jones mailer.  It turns out former Dem Guv Mark White endorsed CM Jones.

Saturday I also got a Bolivar Fraga for At-Large 2 robo call that was made by his father Felix.

Yesterday I got a Laurie Robinson robo call from HPOU.

H-Town CM Stephen Costello went up today with his AC spot.

Early Voting starts today so go vote.   Did you know that in the 2001 November election 20% of the total vote was cast early and in 2009 35% of the total vote was cast early?  Well now you do know.

In the 1960 World Serious between the Yankees and Pirates, Yankee greats Bobby Richardson (12) and Mickey Mantle (11) of course combined for 23 RBIs.  Of course, the Pirates won the Serious.

What a monster game by Albert Pujols Saturday night.

My pal Drayton still owns the Astros and that’s all I have from The Yard.
