Houston Fire Department firefighter Stephen Michalsky collects contributions on behalf of the New York City Fire Department personnel who were killed or injured in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. HFD firefighters were stationed at the intersection of Cullen Blvd. and Elgin Street Thursday.


President George W. Bush, in what will probably be the most important speech of his political career, outlined in forceful terms the coming U.S. response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against the nation.

The aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 is absolutely dripping with lessons to be learned. Lesson number one: Do not let well-known terrorists attend flight schools to learn how to fly commercial jets. Lesson number two: Do not pass judgment on people because of their religion or ethnicity. Hate and prejudice are what got everyone into this mess in the first place.

Beaver Nelson was born in Oklahoma, but his family moved to Houston when he was two. By the time he was in high school, Nelson was regularly commuting to Austin to play at "open mike night" at the Chicago House. After seven years of playing in and around Austin, his debut album, The Last Hurrah, was released in 1998.

Cougar alumni and fans filled the Shamrock Room at the Conrad Hilton Hotel Thursday afternoon to wish former athletics director Chet Gladchuk goodbye and good luck with his new job as the athletics director at Annapolis.
