During repair work on the UH athletic complex, the presence of asbestos was detected.
An asbestos-removal project for the first floor is set for next week. According to a person familiar with the situation, those working there were told not to work there Monday and Tuesday. Alhough the project will last the entire week, those deemed "essential" are asked to return Wednesday.
But employees are understandably wary. One employee is pregnant and in her second trimester.
Another employee had been working in an office where asbestos was supposedly found.
There is a three-stage process. The third floor is set for asbestos removal in mid-January — the home stretch of football recruiting.

A Cadillac blocked the path where I usually park for practice. Grrr. Turns out the owner is Rinda Brooks, one of the Greg McMackin's first great pass-rushers. He still looks like he can play. I guess, he can park there. This time.
