Neighborhoods throughout the North Channel area, and greater Houston, observed National Night Out on Tuesday evening, an annual event to promote public safety and community involvement.”

In Galena Park, city councilmen Juan Flores and Cruz Hinojosa led the event, with a gathering at the Shafaii parking lot on Holland Avenue. Present were firemen, police, and EMS with their equipment, LULAC, and many other organizations. Music, food, games, moonwalk, raffles, and friendship were abundant, with over 200 hot dogs served to the crowd.

In Jacinto City, the main event was held at City Hall on Mercury, with councilmen and Mayor Diaz hosting. Crowds consumed the food, played games, and had a good time. Also elsewhere in the city, neighborhoods held their own parties. At least eleven sites were listed on an official handout, including the home of City Manager Lon Squyres, Councilman Allan Lee, the Library, Second Baptist Church, Munn Street Baptist Church, Big Bass Resort, and Jacinto Palms Apartments, to name only a few.

Dramatic rescue of worker under ship channel bridge

HOUSTON FIREMEN from Stations 42 and 18 attempt to rescue a maintenance worker, dangling from a safety line. The scene was under the Ship Channel bridge on Wednesday at 4 p.m. The man was inspecting the underside of the bridge, when he slipped off a catwalk and was left dangling by his safety harness. Unable to reach him by ladder, as seen in this photo, they eventually stopped traffic on the roadway above, and used a pulley lowered through a manhole in the pavement to reach him and pull him to safety. The rescue took about an hour, and the worker was said to be uninjured but scared.
