    Anyone know which part of Houston this is in? I never understood why they would never include which section (HCN has 37 weeklies, or somewhere around that number).

    I've freelanced with this chain. That's all I got.

    I'm guessing you might be in the Cy-Fair, Cy-Ridge, Cy-Creek, Cy Young area. Maybe out to Tomball. But I'm only guessing.

    I was just in Houston last weekend. I was in my buddy's wedding. It was unbelievably hot wearing a tux in 95-plus weather, but I got a chance to check out the city.

    I was really impressed, aside from the oppressive heat, humidity and traffic.

    AlleyAllen could describe the area better than I, but NW Houston is a huge sprawling area that is mostly actually in Houston city limits but suburban by any other measure. Maybe part of Katy ISD falls in this area, but also Cy-Fair, Spring Branch, Klein, Spring and Aldine. All massive districts with multiple 5A schools.

    Is this job Katy? Because when I think Katy, I think due west, not northwest. Katy's right there on I-10 with Ft. Bend County south of it (SW Houston area) and the Cypress school district to its north (Northwest Houston) on through spring and Tomball and all that stuff.
