No word yet on whether the original deal to set up a distribution center in Lewisville is back on the table.

The Highland Village man who received a kidney from his son's teacher now worries about how he'll pay for the anti-rejection drugs he must take.

Scammers going after LISD parents. LISD warned parents this week about fraudulent "Parent Appreciation Week" calls:

LISD has been informed that there is an individual placing illegitimate calls to some students in the area, which reference the district. The individual explains that the reason for the call is LISD "Parent Appreciation Week." Please note that this individual is not affiliated with LISD and anyone who receives such a call should report it to the local police department. Anyone associated with the district should not ask a parent for a student's direct phone number. As always, student safety is a high priority. We urge you to take this opportunity to talk with your child about safety measures, which include how to appropriately respond to unsolicited phone calls.


Scam emails are going out in one Democratic primary race.

Hydraulic fracturing rarely produces unintended fractures longer than 600 meters (1,968 feet), says a study.

The scam e-mails going out in the Democratic primary race are just sad! There may be, as you say, an investigation but damage is done. Will the investigation be wrapped up and outcome publicized before election day? Doubtful! I hope they find the perpetrator and prosecute them. There is no need for this in politics and there is certainly no need for this between Democrats!
