House Committee Recommends Impeaching Ken Paxton. The Texas Attorney General has been under indictment basically since he won his seat, in 2015. The House Committee on General Investigating delivered 20 articles of impeachment on Thursday to the Texas House and Senate, detailing allegations of bribery, obstruction of justice, and abuse of the public trust. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick won’t say whether the body has the votes to give Paxton the boot, nor would the House say when it planned to hear the matter. The Legislature adjourns on Monday, although there are mechanisms for calling everyone back for review.

Stars Finally Win in Overtime. Joe Pavelski delivered a clutch goal in overtime to lift the Stars over the Knights 3-2 and extend the series for at least another game. Sean Shapiro and David Castillo have more on the game and the mountain that Dallas will have to climb in order to make this competitive.

Officers released an image of the man, who looks like he’s wearing a brown hoodie with gray pants and some sort of yellow backpack. Officers don’t have enough evidence to arrest him, but have stepped up enforcement on the trail.
