    A woman was hit and killed by a car packed with egg-chucking teens who ran a red light Tuesday afternoon, marking unincorporated Harris County's first traffic fatality of 2019. The three teens, including a 14-year-old boy behind the wheel of a GMC Acadia, were fleeing an enraged motorist who gave chase during their alleged egging spree, Harris County Sheriff's Lt. Susan Cotter said. The young driver ignored a red light along Aldine Mail Route Road in north Houston and t-boned a Ford F-150 heading south on Aldine Westfield Road, she said. Both vehicles tumbled into a nearby ditch. The woman...

    On Dec. 19, 2016, Kansas game wardens came to the home of Mark and Kim Mcgaughey regarding a deer they said the family kept illegally as a pet. The mule deer doe, which the family had named Faline and which they had had for about 22 months, was eventually shot and killed by game wardens a few minutes later on the property. (Video courtesy of Taryn Mcgaughey) A western Kansas family is angry that game wardens killed a deer that had been their pet for 22 months and “was like one of the family.” Kim Mcgaughey said the deer...

    A 31-year-old Overbrook man with a history of drug arrests was charged Thursday with killing a beloved 81-year-old South Philadelphia grocer inside her store on Christmas Eve, and police said it was over a piece of jewelry. Maurice Green shot Marie Buck 11 times from the doorway of her store, Marie's Grocery, just before 9 a.m. Dec. 24, Homicide Capt. James Clark said at a news conference Thursday. "He just went and opened up the door," Clark said. "He never even fully was one step inside the store and he fired multiple times, striking her 11 times." Green had intended...

    This evening's presidential debate, the second between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, featured some very sharp disagreements over facts that almost no viewers can judge (such as the licenses issued for drilling in federal lands) and agreement on the topics where viewers have strong opinions (such as capitalism). Perhaps this debate will move those few undecided voters in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida, but it leaves the rest of us judging the debate according to which candidate we'd rather have as a dinner companion. Put differently, Romney missed an opportunity by not discussing larger issues but letting himself get mired in...

    While the United States Census is your chance to be counted, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS learned it is also your chance to spend millions on dog booties, baby bibs and footballs. The trinkets are part of a marketing plan that some call a huge waste. Everything from hats and backpacks to pens and t-shirts--all bearing the 2010 Census logo--have been given out at census parties and sent to city clerks to be distributed. For example attendees at a recent census party in Minneapolis--including politicians and Census Director Robert Grive--took home gift bags filled with census souvenirs. Nationwide, the government spent roughly...

    RICHMOND -- A man accused of killing a Richmond musician's family hog-tied each of his four victims, stabbed them with a knife, cut their throats and bashed them in the head with a hammer, a prosecutor said yesterday. In return for all the bloodshed, the prosecutor said, Ricky Jovan Gray and his purported accomplice made off with just three items: a computer, a wedding ring and some cookies. Gray's role in the New Year's Day slayings of musician Bryan Harvey, 49, his wife, Kathryn, 39, and daughters Stella, 9, and Ruby, 4, was not contested by Gray's defense attorney, who...

    A 95-year-old war veteran in Britain died after being beaten by burglars whom he had resisted at his home near Stalham in Norfolk. Police said Ralph Platten, who had served with the Royal Air Force in North Africa during World War II, was pinned to the ground by the burglars who demanded to know where he kept his money, reports The Times of London. He suffered multiple injuries, including a broken hip, and later died in a hospital, the report said. Police believe the attackers probably knew him.
  • Shaking down Wachovia

    The slavery-reparations crowd is serious about raiding corporate America. That's the lesson to draw from what's happening to Wachovia Corp., the nation's fourth-largest bank, which says that predecessors to two companies it acquired in 1991 and 2001 once traded in slaves. It doesn't take a historian to see that Wachovia is being mau-maued. Wachovia and other companies are now discovering that giving to the slavery-reparations movement is a losing proposition. Two weeks ago Wachovia announced that First Union Corp., with which it merged in 2001, and the South Carolina National Corp., which joined it in 1991, had absorbed predecessor companies...

    A Glimpse Ahead Timothy Snodgrass The Impossible Will Come Alive In 2005 01/28/05 In January of 2004, as we began to intercede for the New Year the Holy Spirit gave us the prophetic slogan, "The Seas will Roar in 2004". This year we were given a new slogan, "The Impossible will come Alive in 2005". As the veil of darkness begins to come down over nations and regions, along with great shakings will come great breakthroughs; signs, wonders, healings and a spectacular release of miracles in impossible circumstances. This year, although we are ultimately poised to gain much ground, there...

Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...
