    A brutal beating of a Buffalo, N.Y. senior was caught on video. WGRZ-TV was given a video of a Buffalo man who was brutally beaten by a group of high school student. The incident happened in North Buffalo at Shoshone Park two weeks ago as James LeGrand, who is a part of Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown’s Impact Team, was in the park’s parking lot when he noticed two girls arguing with a bunch of student who surrounded them and were encouraging them to fight. He tried to break up the fight several times and then got a camera and started...

    Team Thompson was very, very happy here at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center Tuesday night. Sure, the first Republican debate to include Fred Thompson, a debate which focused mostly on economic issues, was a little dull. And sure, it went on for too long. And sure, moderator Chris Matthews – well, don’t get them started on him. But the bottom line was, Fred Thompson did just fine...

    A friend died today. To much of the world, Byron Nelson was "Lord Byron", record-holding golfer, philanthropist, and gentle soul. To me, he was my friend, Mr. Nelson.Mr. Nelson and I attended the same church for a number of years. It was a large congregation in Fort Worth and it held a special place in his heart. He was particularly fond of beautiful singing and that is what brought us together.His lovely wife Peggy sang in the chorus of our Christmas show each year - my wife sang on our Praise Team. Sometimes we would be at the church building...

    The Pflugerville Flag | 2/10/2005 | Kathy Ellis
    During the Feb.2 State of the Union Address, President Bush acknowledged Pflugerville resident's William and Janet Norwood whose son, Marine Sergeant Byron Norwood, was killed in action last year in Fallujah, Iraq. The lost of Sgt. Norwood deeply touched members of the Pflugerville community and more than 1,000 friends and family of Sgt. Norwood attended services honoring him at the Pflugerville High School Fine Arts Center. Late last year a group of citizens began gathering support and searching for a way to memorialize Sgt. Norwood's sacrifice for his country. "Although our town is obviously appreciative and respectful of the sacrifices...

    Byron York begins by saying "Alston did indeed serve under Kerry." Mr. York made the usual mistake all reporters do when reporting on Sen. Kerry and his "Band of Brothers" by simply repeating what they repeat to them without confirming whether or not it could possibly be true. York writes, "And it appears that while Alston was in fact on board PCF-94 when Kerry was in command, his total time of service under Kerry was quite brief _ perhaps as little as seven days." Based upon what, what Fred Short or David Alston told him? Read on.... "Alston, a gunner's...
