The Morning Texan: Rain, post-it notes by Powers and more


The National Weather Service is calling for a high of 98 degrees today, despite the 30 percent chance of thunderstorms. The chance of rain drops to 10 percent this evening.

Here is some morning reading:

Yesterday's most-read story online: The Texas Tribune uncovered an extensive open records request made by Regent Wallace Hall. Post-it notes from UT President William Powers Jr. were included in the request, and so The Daily Texan editorial board has taken a guess of what post-it notes the regents might find on the president's desk.

In case you missed it: A New York district judge has ruled that unpaid internships violate federal labor laws. Some UT students are now concerned it might be harder to find an internship. 

What you have to read: UT researchers have spent months without their promised cancer research grants. However, despite controversies, it looks like CPRIT has been saved by the 83rd Legislature, and the researchers should be getting their money soon.
