    Cops have busted twin brothers from the Bronx for allegedly stockpiling explosive materials and crafting bombs inside their home — with help from high school students. Christian Toro, a former teacher at Harlem Prep, and his brother, Tyler Toro, were arrested by the FBI on Thursday as part of a joint investigation with the NYPD. The two 27-year-olds had been forging explosive devices inside their Pelham Parkway apartment since last October — using gunpowder from fireworks as the base for their bomb-making, according to the complaint. A search of the residence turned up a slew of dangerous chemicals, including 20...

    TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman has a warning for anyone who uses Texas toll roads and uses the TxTag for billing. Birgit Grubbs, of Athens, has used Toll 49 for years, but recently found out she was charged hundreds of dollars in tolls for trips she has never taken on roads in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. After trying to solve the problem herself by calling customer support and filing complaints and getting no resolution, she contacted us. "I was like Holy Moly... there is no way that these charges are mine," Grubbs said. She was shocked when...

    TYLER (KYTX) – People traveled from all over East Texas to see Sen. Ted Cruz speak at Smith’s Lone Star Event Center. While many were Cruz supporters, others have not made up their mind about the GOP race. “I want to get a feel for him up close,” said Randy Huntsberger, who traveled from Noonday. “We're looking at several candidates. We haven't made a full decision of support, but we like a lot of things that he has stood for.” Others in the crowd have supported Cruz since his Senate race in 2012, once thought to be a long shot....

    Longtime Ted Cruz supporter Mary Joe Carson, 79, of Forney, proudly showcased a “Ted Cruz for President” campaign button she purchased in 2014 at the Republican state convention.

She drove two-and-a-half hours from Dallas and arrived in Tyler at 1 p.m. Slowly, other supporters filed in, forming a sea of red, white and blue. With her purse in her lap and her fingers tightly woven together, Ms. Carson and a group...

    Tyler S. Drumheller, a high-level CIA officer who publicly battled agency leaders over one of the most outlandish claims in the U.S. case for war with Iraq, died Aug. 2 at a hospital in Fairfax County. He was 63. The cause was complications from pancreatic cancer, said his wife, Linda Drumheller. Mr. Drumheller held posts in Africa and Europe over a 26-year career during which the CIA’s focus shifted from the Cold War to terrorist threats. He rose to prominent positions at CIA headquarters, serving as chief of the European division at a time when the agency was abducting al-Qaeda...

    January 9, 2015 Retired Gen. David Petraeus Could Face Federal Charges CBS News has confirmed that felony charges may be brought against retired Gen. David Petraeus. Both the FBI and federal prosecutors are recommending that Petraeus be charged with providing classified information to his former mistress while he was director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Petraeus, a four star general who led U.S. military forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan, resigned from the CIA in November 2012 after his affair with Paula Broadwell, an Army Reserve officer, became public.

    American Thinker ^ | 2-1-14 | Deborah C. Tyler
    Through the course of thirty-five years of practicing psychology, I have come to believe that the key to happiness and success in life resides in the power of valuation. True valuation is the ability to recognize the most important value in every circumstance and to behave in order to actualize that value. The happiest people automatically recognize and act upon true values. Applied psychology has not fulfilled its potential to make the world a better place because it has not focused on the powers of valuation. America's happiness and success as a nation have resulted from the one-pointed emphasis on...

    TYLER — The new Sarah Palin movie opened in Tyler today. The film, The Undefeated, is a two-hour long documentary featuring Palin supporters, residents of Alaska and conservative bloggers. The turnout for the 2:30 p.m. showing today sold out. Times Square decided to add an additional theater to accommodate the crowd, and that one almost filled up too. The film has been shown in 14 cities across the country so far. Tyler is the third Texas town to show the film, including Grapevine and Houston.

The station, KLTV, acknowledges that around 200 birds were found dead this morning on state highway 155. The birds, identified as American coots or mud-hens, are the first of this species to be cited in the recent spate of deaths. As with previous cases, the cause of death is...

And as Longview rail advocate Natalie Rabicoff said when Glavin was introduced in Tyler on Thursday, "He's been moving the whole time." Since his December 2009 appointment, the rail industry consultant has brought much-wanted energy to a state agency racing to complete a finished state rail plan. Glavin and other TxDOT officials from Austin visited East Texas on Thursday, stopping in Tyler for the 10th and final public briefing on the plan. Officials hope to present a finished copy of the 250-page...
