The Kerr County Sheriff's Office says the aircraft went down this morning in a ravine just outside of Kerrville.

Kerrville is an hour west of San Antonio.       Democrat Elijah Cummings says the Trump Organization is using a "baseless lawsuit" to block his request for financial documents.

The clock tower is off limits, but some students say it's been a rite of passage for years for graduating seniors to climb it.        Ukraine has elected a comedian as the new President.
