BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) A report is predicting a below-average shrimp season in Texas, which could lead to higher prices.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Botanists in West Texas have identified a new species of plant that's likely poisonous and may be near extinction. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the spiny distant relative of the eggplant had already been discovered twice in 1974 and 1990, but were misidentified. Scientists and students from universities in Texas, Utah and Colorado had set out to find the plant that's been named Solanum cordictum, which is Latin means "from the heart." That's a reference to Valentine, the Texas town where it was found.
