The rural area lost both its hospitals. Can a telehealth station in Cameron fill the urgent-care gap?
There's a history of state legislatures intervening in intrastate football rivalries.
After a packed public hearing last week, Alpine's City Council unanimously voted to reject A&M's proposal to launch drones from Alpine's municipal airport. Alpine's triumph, however, is more symbolic than anything else. Unmanned aircraft will still fly over the Big Bend region.
In the House of Representatives traditional flag football game, sports and politics collided on the grass of Kyle Field. Fortunately, the only things that got bruised were a few egos.
If you thought the rivalry between the University of Texas and Texas A&M was currently on ice, you are correct. Tonight in College Station, the two schools face off in, you guessed it, hockey.
Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban has a very smart blog on what the Big Twelve should do if A&M leaves. It was published several days ago and has been picked up by other sports blogs. * * * * Here is some unsolicited advice to the Big 12. As you
(This post is a revision that includes corrections from a previous draft.) Regarding the situation with Texas A&M and the future of the Big Twelve Conference, I have spoken with persons familiar with the situation at Baylor, who prefer to remain anonymous. This is what I have learned. 1. The

It expresses the group's concern that A&M is not making sufficient progress towards the goals set forth in the University's twenty-year planning document, Vision 2020, at the
This is the lead of the story from The Battalion, the student newspaper at A&M: After seven and a half years as commandant of the Corps of Cadets, Lt. Gen. John Van Alstyne resigned Friday [January 22]. "There are good young men and women in the Corps," Van Alstyne said.

Here are some conditions that may — indeed, should — apply to its return. I found this by googling “Ray Bowen bonfire recommendations.” University president Ray Bowen said Friday [I believe the date referred to is September 8, 2001] that when the tradition does resume, in 2002 at
This report is from Senior Editor Pam Colloff: In the course of working on an oral history of the A&M Bonfire tragedy for our November issue—a story that will mark the tenth anniversary of the Bonfire tragedy, which claimed the lives of twelve Aggies—I had the opportunity to interview Rick
