Governor helps honor area’s first responders Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was on hand when the South Belt-Ellington Chamber of Commerce hosted a dinner to honor first responders for their hard work during Hurricane Harvey. Several hundred attended the event, which was held at the Lone Star Flight Museum at Ellington Field in the hangers with military planes and helicopters. Many dignitaries were present including area legislators and Hilton Koch, owner of Hilton Furniture. The setting was very impressive. Guests were greeted with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, after which they enjoyed dinner and Governor Abbott recognized the many first responders who helped thousands of victims during the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. The Lone Star Flight Museum is located at 11551 Aerospace Ave. at Ellington Field and is a great venue for parties and events. Katie Jackman, the chief marketing officer, will be happy to help you book your next event.

MEET AND ADOPT KIX My name is Kix and I’m a special boy. My siblings and I were born this spring while in the care of the shelter and all of us are named after cereals. I am a very playful fellow and I love to race around the cattery. It seems a lot like Kitten Disneyland to me - plenty of cat trees and toys to enjoy! There are a lot of us in here so I have many friends to keep me busy. I also have a chill side and I like being petted and having my ears scratched. Of course it’s not long before I recharge and then I’m ready for more play time. Come visit me, Pebbles, Coco Puff, Cookie Crisp, and all the kittens! I know one of us will be your furever friend! You can meet Kix and all of the cats and dogs at Bay Area Pet Adoptions, 3000 Avenue R, San Leon or visit us on the web at www.bayareapetadoptions.org. They are open every day except Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bay Area Pet Adoptions (Phone: 281-339-2086) is a nonprofit, No-Kill shelter, pet rescue, and adoption organization.
