Holden tries to help Houston, Spirit lose Ship, and more: Freedom Kicks for August 30, 2017

Stu Holden’s the man, and the Spirit lose another one.

Happy Wednesday folks. My thoughts continue to be with the people of Houston, Rockport/Port Aransas, Corpus Christi, Port Arthur and the rest of the Texas Gulf Coast. I continue to check in with family and friends that are down in Houston, and while all of them are thankfully safe, many others are not out of the woods. There are plenty of fundraisers out there that are benefitting the people of Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey, so I encourage you to find one nearest you and give what you can to help. Now, onto the news:
