FROM JAY: Spring is upon us here in Houston, and the outdoor activities are going into high gear. One well-known outdoor activity in Hermann Park is Miller Outdoor Theatre, which is preparing for its 100th season this year. Its centennial season will kick o on March 17, featuring the Trinity Irish Dance Company, a cutting-edge Irish dance troupe, and a full season of entertainment throughout 2023. Also celebrating 100 years in Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo features specials you can read about in our To-Do section on Page 8 as well as some other great events to check out. Jay McMahon, GENERAL MANAGER

FROM SHAWN: Our top story this month takes a look at some developments that have taken place in a courtroom clash between Houston ISD and the Texas Education Agency. We take a look at the history of the case, which dates back to 2019, as well as the implications of a January Texas Supreme Court decision that has caused some concern among public education advocacy groups. In addition to that, we bring you the latest on the Willow Waterhole Greenway in Westbury, where new trails are slated to open this year and talks are ongoing over a potential multimillion-dollar community park. Shawn Arrajj, SENIOR EDITOR
