Whooping Cough: A third-grade student at Liberty Elementary School has been diagnosed with what's commonly referred to as "whooping cough". LES Principal Stacy Cain sent a notice home with students Friday warning parents about that diagnosis. The notice says whooping cough is a contagious bacterial infection that can spread through the air when those infected cough. If not treated, whooping cough can easily spread to others. Health officials say it usually starts like a common cold but worsens over one to two weeks as a cough develops. Children under one year of age are most likely to get very sick if they develop whooping cough. LES students and their family members are encouraged to contact their physician about a vaccine or booster vaccine to protect against this easily transmitted bacterial infection. If you or your doctor has questions, call Dr. Lin with the state health department at 713-767-3000.


Hurricane Season: Saturday marked the sixth anniversary since Hurricane Ike wreaked havoc along the upper Texas coast. Experts say it's a reminder that those living in hurricane zones should not let their guard down despite a surprisingly minimal amount of tropical storm activity so far this season. Remember, the historical peak of the hurricane season is mid-August to late October.
