Angie Bado: Gone But Never Forgotten, We Remember Truett Street Murder Victims

Truett St. victims

For my family and me, March 12, 2004 remains a date that will forever be etched firmly into our minds. Like 9/11, we remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard the awful, mind-boggling news. That news was that two of my son’s friends and fellow football players from McKinney North High School had been ...

Romeo and Juliet

TSB Sports Talk: Raise The Curtains on The MLB Playoffs


The scene: On a cold Sunday night in Boston, beloved Red Sox hero David Ortiz steps to the plate. Boston trails the Detroit Tigers 5-1 in the bottom of the 8th inning, two outs and bases loaded.

Gateway Rendering 1

The following was submitted to TSB by Clayton Myhre and posted verbatim in response to “Gateway Hotel and Site Plan Approved.”  Lost in all the discussion about the buildings look, is the size of the hotel and the convention center, which is why McKinney got involved in the first place.
