Again, the private development company the state picked to build the highway has fallen behind on payments for work that’s been done. So major contractor Crider & Crider of Bloomington has stopped working, again, until it gets paid. State officials aren’t saying so,...

The 21-mile project,...

    EDINBURG - Hidalgo County District Clerk Omar Guerrero deeply regrets his lack of good judgment and apologizes to all his supporters, according to a statement issued by the agency handling his re-election campaign.

I had been taking medication for an illness and this affected my ability to communicate effectively with the McAllen police officer. I'm human like everyone else and I make mistakes. In retrospect,...
