House Democrats write articles of impeachment

They are citing abuse of power. A Texas Tech political analyst says the process is mostly about drumming up votes. Constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley says he has gotten a barrage of threats after his testimony against impeaching the president.

Smylie Wilson student arrested

Staff found a gun in the student's backpack. No word on the type of gun or whether it was loaded. No threats were made and parents were immediately notified. Lubbock ISD has a zero-tolerance policy with dealing with weapons on school property and says the student will face severe disciplinary action.

Alcohol will be able to be delivered right to your door

A senate bill passed in may made it possible by allowing the creation of a consumer delivery permit. That permit lets third party businesses like Favor and Instacart deliver alcohol. Delivery drivers will pick up the drinks at licensed bars, restaurants, and liquor stores and take them to customers. Divers will be responsible for verifying that customers are of legal age and not intoxicated when dropping off the alcohol.

Food stamp working rules changing

Hundreds of thousands of Americans who reply on the Federal Food Stamp Program will lose their benefits under a new Trump administration rule that will tighten work requirements for recipients. The new rule would limit states from waiving standards and instead restricting their use to areas that have a 6% unemployment rate or higher. 

New monthly birth control in development

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a device which contains an entire one-month supply of birth control.
The star-shaped device has six arms, each holding a certain dose of medication, and is folded into a capsule. And once swallowed, the gadget unfolds in the stomach, gradually releasing the drug.
As medication dissolves out of each of the arms, the device breaks down until it can safely pass through the digestive system. But don't rush out to your doctor to ask for a prescription, the experimental capsule is still years away from being available in drugstores. However, scientists say a key test of the device in animals was successful.
