Aesthetic appeal and beautification of neighborhoods are the main focuses of a new project that was recently announced by the City of Houston.

The ‘Love Your Block’ project was established by the city in order to promote togetherness among Houston communities. The Mayor of the city, Annise Parker, discussed a grant that was developed with Home Depot and it’s benefits to the project. This grant allows for 20 separate gift cards, worth $500 each, to be distributed to deserving groups of residents in the Houston area.

Since there are a limited number of gift cards, the project will promote friendly competitions among neighborhoods in the community. These cards are a starting point for modifications, and will help act as a catalyst for bringing people together throughout the city.

The Houston contested wills lawyers of Garg & Associates, P.C. are committed to keeping Houston clean and beautiful. For more information regarding this new project, please visit the ABC Houston site today.

Posted on March 29th, 2012 No Comments

In 2004, a Houston couple reported that their infant son had gone missing. Eight years later, authorities found the young boy living 140 miles outside of Houston with his alleged captors. The young boy was removed from the hostile environment, and entered state custody.

The biological parents of the 8-year-old have undergone DNA testing, as well as other testing. The DNA testing proves that they are the actual parents of the boy, and that neither of them are on any types of drugs. The state has decided to keep the boy in their custody until everyone involved can complete mandatory therapy sessions.

The 8-year-old is currently unaware that his biological parents are seeking custody of him, or even the fact that he was not being raised by his biological parents. He will be told once the proper procedures have been completed. According to authorities, the little boy is at a kindergarten level in regards to school, and will need special attention in order to transition.

The Houston estate planning lawyers of Garg & Associates, P.C. hope that the transition for this young boy goes according to plan, and that he is able to overcome the obstacles ahead of him. To learn more about this ongoing story, please visit the Houston ABC news website today.
