Nine people were arrested Friday night in a home on Michael Street, just blocks from Magnolia Junior High, including two adult residents of that home, and seven neighborhood kids.

The trouble began when the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office asked Magnolia Police to check the location for a female runaway.

When officers arrived, two juveniles who were in the front yard ran inside the house. Officers went to the door and were met with a distinctive odor. They contacted Justice of the Peace Matt Masden, who signed a search warrant.

Inside the home, officers found narcotics, resulting in nine arrests.

Magnolia police were assisted by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Precinct 5 Constable’s Office.

The investigation is continuing.

The annual Light of the Tree in The Woodlands was extra special this year because the person who pushed the button was a 14-year-old local heart transplant recipient.

Anna King’s family learned she needed a new heart shortly after they moved to The Woodlands, her mother Pam King said. After nearly two years, they got the call and the transplant was a success. The teen addressed the large crowd gathered to watch the lighting with all the poise of a trained professional speaker.

“As you know, we have a lot to be thankful for,” Anna said, “So being here with you guys is so awesome.”

She spoke of learning she needed a transplant and how The Woodlands community gathered around the family and helped them through that trying time.

“We can never thank you all enough for that and most of all, thank you to the family that we don’t know – the one that made the decision to donate their daughter’s organs, and that decision gave me my life back,” she said.

Anna said if her story could be any kind of a blessing to those listening, she hoped it did two things. She hoped it would remind people to grab onto those they love “and hold them tight,” and that it would make them want to “reach out to another family, neighbor, coworker, friend, or even a stranger – pick someone who needs to be carried for a little while.”

Pam King said the family was overwhelmed by the large crowd, filled with familiar faces.

“The Woodlands is the greatest place in the world for kids, and we’ve never known a situation where neighbors could be so wonderful,” she said.

The audience counted aloud from 10, and at one, Anna pressed the large button the giant tree was lit, drawing cheers from the audience. Other tries also became illuminated and the lights blinked in rhythm to the Christmas music that began to play.

People danced and sang along with the Christmas music as artificial snow flurries added to the festive spirit.

Anna called Thursday night “One of the best nights” of her life, “if not the best.”

Her mom said Anna had just passed the three-month mark post-transplant when she was allowed out among people.

“It’s so wonderful to be able to come out with her to a community event, and she’s no longer the child waiting for the heart. She’s the child that got the heart, and everybody can celebrate our blessings and that she was able to come out the other side of this thing,” Pam King said. “We made it and thanks to that donor she’s standing here and she was able to celebrate with us.”

The trees will be lit every night through the Christmas season.
