You’re busy. We know.

That’s why League City Connection works for you, gathering and condensing all the news you can use and reporting what’s going on in your community.

And believe us, there’s a lot going on.

In this issue, you’ll find some new reporter names, including that of Valerie Wells. Wells joined The Galveston County Daily News and Connection staff in early October and hit the ground running.

Wells in this issue reports about how a group of alert Lakes of South Shore Harbour residents demanded information from their Municipal Utility District No. 7 board and flooded League City council members with complaints and ultimately stopped annexation of a subdivision.

Meanwhile, Wells also introduced us to faith-based groups that are working to help people down on their luck. Although League City is considered affluent, there were nearly 1,300 homeless students enrolled in the Clear Creek Independent School District in the 2015-2016 school year. You can read the inspiring story about how an organization called Family Promise is working to help.

In another inspirational story in this issue, correspondent Flori Meeks reports about Mendel Cotlar, whose short life continues to be an inspiration to others.

And of course, we have plenty to report on League City politics, which are as lively as ever.
