  • Emma Primas of Houston, one of the oldest Texans, dies at 112

    In a lengthy news release written in tribute to Primas, the congresswoman called her "an African American woman who lived a life worthy of praise, who was raised in and survived the segregation of the Deep South and never thought she would live to meet an African American president and first lady."

    Mickey, 61, accompanied her grandmother to many engagements where Primas was lauded by elected officials and dignitaries. The matriarch was a daily hat-wearer – elaborate crowns for church, casual ones during the week and rugged caps when she was going fishing.

    "Every time she went out she had a hat on," Mickey said. "I always made sure she looked pretty."

    Watt was nominated for his work and efforts after Hurricane Harvey, raising $37 million in a span of 19 days.

    "It’s such an honor and so humbling to be mentioned in the same sentence as Walter Payton,” Watt said. "At the same time, it’s also great to honor the people of Houston and everything they have been through -- the adversity and the people standing up and helping their fellow neighbor out.”

    Watt was joined by the two other finalists -- Baltimore's Benjamin Watson and Carolina's Greg Olsen -- at the NFL'S fan forum along with Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    Watt said it was a total team effort locally, nationally and across the NFL as the money he raised went directly to relief to efforts.

    “It’s all about putting that positive spin on things and being able to turn a negative into a positive,Womens Braxton Miller Jersey,” said Watt.

    Watt was also asked what gift he could give back to his fans and his city.

    “Besides winning the city a Super Bowl and uplifting them in that way is just making sure these recovery efforts go the right way," Watt said. "I’ve been working since the fundraiser, rebuilding hundreds of homes, providing daycare and providing food and shelter for people."

    “We want these people to know we have not forgotten about them,Womens Tyler Ervin Jersey," Watt said. "Just because it’s not at the top of the news anymore we are still here and we are still thinking about them and still doing what we can to help."

    The Houston Texans player, 25, accepted the prestigious award on Saturday,Womens Kevin Johnson Jersey, February 3. “This award is about the inherent good that lies within humanity. It’s about the city of Houston and its ability to overcome adversity at a time when it all seemed lost. It is about the hundreds of thousands of people from all over the country and all over the world who donated to a city they may have never been to, to people that they may never meet,” he said at the NFL honors event. “But they donated simply because they saw their fellow humans going through a difficult time and they wanted to help out.”

    As previously reported, Watt,Authentic Jaelen Strong Jersey, who has played for the hometown team since 2011, raised more that $37 million in 19 days in August 2017 for relief efforts,000 himself. Hurricane Harvey, in addition to donating $100,Womens Julién Davenport Jersey, a catastrophic Category 4 storm, hit Texas in August and caused $125 billion in damage. The Texas Tribune reported in October that at least 88 people died from the storm.

    “This is a historic day for Texas and we will work tirelessly to uphold the trust and responsibility the state has placed in Knox Medical.”

    The medicine contains the ingredient in a marijuana plant that lets a patient get the medical benefits without the buzz.

    Cansortium Texas, one of three companies licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety to grow and sell medical marijuana in Texas, is the first company to get the product on the market.

    Each dose of the medicine, which must be prescribed by a doctor, will be delivered directly to a patient’s home by a nurse or social worker anywhere in the state.

    Other marijuana use — for medical or recreation — remains illegal in Texas and more than a dozen other states. But it is legal, in one form or another, in 29 states and the District of Columbia.

    The low-level cannabidiol she received Thursday is being sold under a 2015 law to help Texans with intractable epilepsy if federally approved medication hasn’t helped.

    This culminates a lengthy process that began when the Texas Legislature, led by state Rep. Stephanie Klick, R-Fort Worth, approved the Texas Compassionate Use Act to make use of cannabidiol legal for at least some of the nearly 150,000 Texans estimated to have intractable epilepsy.

    Lawmakers have stressed this is an extremely limited form of medical marijuana geared to let patients receive benefits without the high. This medicine does not include, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient that produces a high.

    Only 15 doctors in Texas — those registered with the Compassionate Use Program — are legally allowed to prescribe the product to treat intractable epilepsy.

    Another permit was issued to Compassionate Cultivation, which is growing plants in a more than 7,Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey,000-square-foot warehouse in Austin. And a third license was issued to Suterra Texas in the form of a conditional Texas license. This company has yet to receive the final approval needed to plant the seeds.

    Thursday’s delivery follows news earlier this week that Compassionate Cultivation will open the state’s first medical marijuana dispensary Feb. 8 near Austin.
