Stand up: We and others fight the city for stricter laws, but they won't take a stand. The city won't say no and mean it. The builders and developers have the money and a strong lobby. Overbuilding also increases the tax base for the city. It has always been that the neighborhood has to fight for itself — unless you live where you pay an "association" to do it for you.
Historic Heights: Please consider the years of history that would be destroyed and attempt to understand why we feel so strongly about the unique historic area we live in. If you don't treasure "old," why would you live in the Heights area?
The difference: We moved into the Freeland because of the old-town feeling and history of this area. We all have restored and maintained our bungalows and we take great pride in our historic community. If you have never had that, you can't possibly appreciate or understand what we are fighting to preserve. We are not anti-builder, we are pro-Freeland Historic District. There is a difference.
In our story "Body Count" (by Thomas Rundle, April 2), we never should have said that the dogs used in the search for missing bodies were "FEMA-certified cadaver dogs" because there is no such designation.
As it turns out, the dog handlers were certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in live rescue operations. While FEMA itself does not do cadaver rescue, its certified handlers and the dogs they have trained can be used by other agencies — as was the case here.
The Houston Press regrets the error.
