Beyonce Expresses Interest In Owning Houston Rockets

Music Icon Beyonce Rumored To Want The Houston Rockets Basket Ball Team

(HOUSTON) — Mega pop star, and Houston native and diva, Beyonce is considering becoming an investor in the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets.

Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander announced is a surprise media conference last month he was selling the team. Alexander paid nearly $85 million for the team in 1993, but the team sale could reach $2 billion.

Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, at one time, owned a small percent in the New York Nets. Many celebrities do. For example, Justin Timberlake owns a piece of basketball’s Grizzlies.

Beyonce, who has performed wearing a Rockets jersey, would add superstar sizzle to any ownership group, likely helping the team with local and international marketing.

Prominent Houston Attorney Transitions To A Woman, Finds Support From Law Firm And Clients!

 

(HOUSTON) — The transgender community just got a new face. A local Houston attorney has transitioned and is proud of her community and especially her law firm for their massive support.

Law firm Fish & Richardson isn’t named “Law Firm of The Year” by U.S. News for nothing. Danielle Joy “DJ” Healey, a litigator with the global firm, formally known as David Healey, said the firm worked with her to make it as easy as possible to announce her change to clients and to people at work.

Healey, a 57-year-old senior principal at the firm says; “They put an enormous amount of effort and time and energy into it. It just shows that the Fish family is really a family,” she told Law.com. Healey says she has known she was transgender since she was 4. “I’ve had to deal with. … It doesn’t change me as a person. It just allows me to live more fully and happily,” she said.

“We’re delighted that DJ was able to transition with the support of her firm. We would not say that is typical in any way, shape or form. Firms have a long way to go,” D’Arcy Kemnitz, executive director of the National LGBT Bar Association said.

In a released statement Fish & Richardson announced that
“Diversity and inclusion are crucial to the positive culture and success of our firm, and we treat everyone with respect and dignity at all times. DJ is a valued colleague and an important part of the Fish family, and we will support her completely in the months ahead.”

Ms. Healey graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 1985 with honors and Brown University in 1982. Ms. Healey served as law clerk to the Honorable James DeAnda, United States District Judge, Southern District of Texas, from 1985-1987.

Popular Downtown Straight Club ‘Spire Nightclub’ Known For Ever Growing LGBT Presence Has Scary Wednesday Night For Club Patrons.

(HOUSTON) — A night out in downtown Houston gets chaotic for club goers, leaving at least two people with gunshot wounds, and other injured as a vehicle drives into a crowd leaving Spire Nightclub.

According to Houston Police, pandemonium broke out in the nightclub’s parking lot shortly after closing. “It’s a really confusing scene at this point,” HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said, “We’re not exactly sure who’s the victim and who’s the suspect in this.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, ‘a fight led three individuals to drive a car into a crowd of people. The car hitting a patron with impact enough to shatter the vehicle’s windshield.’

A club patron in the crowd produced a weapon and fired shots at the vehicle. As the vehicle attempted to escape the gunfire, it hit a utility pole.

Houston Police Investigators are attempting to reconstruct the scene, but everyone involved – witnesses, victims, and perpetrators – fled the scene.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call the department’s Major Assaults Unit at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
