    The NTSB found that mechanical failures caused a plane to go off the runway and crash into a car in McKinney last month. It happened on November 11 and the pilot was coming from Abilene. The only injury reported was the person in the car that was struck. Investigators said the first problem was a door seal that failed on the single-engine Lancair IV-P. The plane lost pressurization, so the pilot made an emergency descent, then noticed a caution light about the propeller. The pilot reduced power and tried an emergency landing at Aero Country Airport in McKinney, but the...

    A plane attempted an emergency landing at a Texas airport before it crashed through a fence and plowed into a car on the busy highway nearby. The spectacular crash happened around 12.30pm Saturday near Aero Country Airport in McKinney. Miraculously, neither the two people in the plane nor the single individual in the car involved suffered serious injuries. According to McKinney Fire and the Federal Aviation Administration, a pilot flying a single-engine Lancair IV-P Propjet attempted an emergency landing, narrowly missing the end of the runway. 'I looked over and saw a bunch of smoke come out from the tires,'...

    In light of last week’s inflation report revealing prices in September rose faster than expected, recent data shows some cities are better equipped to handle a recession than others. Frisco and McKinney are two of those cities, ranking among the 20 most resilient economies in the nation, according to data from SmartAsset, a financial technology company.

    Aug. 14—A man who was arrested Aug. 4 for allegedly committing an incestuous and forcible rape of a child in Franklin County that day had been released less than three months before from the Morgan County Jail with zero bond on a charge of forcible sexual abuse of a child. The Morgan County district attorney and the circuit judge who authorized the defendant's release from jail disagree on who, if anyone, was to blame. Raymond Matthew McKinney, 35, was arrested Dec. 5 after being indicted by a Morgan County grand jury for sexual contact with a child under the age...

    Another beautiful, conservative area is being destroyed by wildfire. Much of the problem is mismanagement and much of it is arson fueled by ignorance and hatred from the left. They like fire! On Sunday, July 31, 2022, at approximately 9:57 a.m., fire personnel located two deceased individuals inside a vehicle that was burned in the path of the #McKinneyFire. The vehicle was located in a residential driveway along Doggett Creek Road, which is off of Highway 96, west of the community of Klamath River, California. **There will be no additional information pending positive identification and notifications to next-of-kin.** ADDITIONAL FIRE...

    Supporters of an effort to recall a McKinney councilman are celebrating Friday, after they turned in what they believe to be enough signatures to push the election forward. The movement to remove council member La'Shadion Shemwell, who was elected in 2017, also received the support of McKinney Mayor George Fuller. Shemwell and his supporters have said the recall is in retaliation for his comments about racism and police use of force. Recall organizer Jolie Williams said they collected more than 3,000 signatures, well above the 2,100 threshold set by law. “We’ve done our work,” Williams said. “We’re confident in our...

    It wouldn’t be an election cycle without Cynthia McKinney’s lunacy, and fortunately she hasn’t shied away from providing it. Here, we watch as the Green Party’s endorsed presidential candidate accuses National Guard soldiers of committing 5,000 murders of prisoners in the wake of Hurricane Katrina: If you think that this is the kind of insanity one normally hears from Alex Jones, well … you’d be right. The conspiracy theorists on the Left and the Right tend to embrace each other at a certain point, just south of rationality. For these people, little points like evidence and common sense provide no...

    Political junkies will recall with a giggle the less than distinguished career of Cynthia McKinney, the six-term congressperson from Georgia who was an embarrassment even to far lefties who are usually immune to embarrassment. (In fact, when she returned to the House in 2005 after having been defeated for re-election in the Democratic primary in 2002, the Democratic House leadership refused to restore her committee seniority. She was defeated again in the Democratic primary in 2006.) Among other things, McKinney was a 9/11 “truther,” and also speculated that the CIA had a role in the killing of rapper Tupac Shakur....

    A Texas high school valedictorian has revealed she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech. Larissa Martinez told classmates at McKinney Boyd High School that she was one of the 11million undocumented citizens living in the United States after she fled her abusive and alcoholic father in Mexico. The 18-year-old, who has been offered a full scholarship to Yale, said she decided against giving her classmates the 'traditional Hallmark version' of the speech and instead opted for the truth. The teenager told the crowd of thousands: 'Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are people too'. 'We are here without documentation because...

    Texas’ conservative Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton calls the Supreme Court decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry a “lawless ruling” and says state workers can cite their religious objections in denying marriage licenses. He warned in a statement Sunday that any clerk, justice of the peace or other administrator who declines to issue a license to a same-sex couple could face litigation or a fine. But in the nonbinding legal opinion, Paxton says “numerous lawyers” stand ready to defend, free of charge, any public official refusing to grant one. …

    **SNIP** Joined by Louisiana and Kansas, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the Obama administration Thursday seeking to overturn a fee imposed under the Affordable Care Act. The lawsuit seeks a refund of that amount and an order prohibiting future collections of the fee. Paxton says this is “functionally an unconstitutional tax on the states in order to fund the insolvent Obamacare mandate”. Brownback said, “The federal government is threatening to cut $1.6 billion of federal Medicaid funding affecting more than 400,000 Kansans in need unless Kansas pays millions of dollars in taxes to the federal government to support Obamacare”....

The federal government...

Paxton posted a total of $35,000 bond on two counts of securities fraud and one count of failing to register as an investment adviser.

The first two are first-degree felonies punishable by up to 99 years in prison on conviction. The last is a third-degree felony that...
