40 Dallas ISD students are flying to Florida to learn about math and science at NASA

TNS

Adamson freshman Estrella Herrera and South Oak Cliff sophomore Tatyana Stubblefield will fly in an airplane for the first time on Sunday, but it won’t be a typical flight.

On a private charter, the duo — part of a 40-student, eight-teacher contingent from Dallas ISD — will leave Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and land at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center on the same landing strip used by NASA’s Space Shuttle.

It’s the first stop on a three-day ‘STEM-Liner Experience,’ as DISD is calling it — an educational adventure focusing on science, technology, engineering and math.

The students — selected by principals at four DISD high schools: Adamson, South Oak Cliff, Obama Male Leadership Academy and Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School — will visit the space center and nearby Florida...

As the National Rifle Association rallies in Dallas, TX for their annual convention this week, one local restaurant owner is taking a stand in favor of gun control.

Customers who visit his restaurant, Ellen’s, in downtown Dallas near the convention center over the weekend will find that their receipts contain a message that says, "Thanks for visiting Ellen’s! A portion of this week’s proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to implementing reasonable and effective gun regulations. Welcome to Dallas!"

Groves wants people to know that he is not anti-gun or against the Second Amendment. “As the owner of a restaurant and as someone who cares about these issues, being pro-Second Amendment and being pro-safet y are not incompatible," he said.

To no one’s surprise, Groves has received ...

A gas explosion in Dallas killed a 12-year-old girl last month and prompted the evacuation of a northwest neighborhood of close to 3,000 people.

Dallas Morning News investigative reporter Cary Aspinwall has obtained emails from the Texas Railroad Commission indicating that crews from Atmos Energy, the natural gas supplier in the area, were repairing multiple gas leaks very close to the home that exploded, but the company didn’t shut down the pipelines or evacuate the neighborhood immediately.

One of the emails dated 12 hours before the explosion describes how Atmos employees were investigating two leaks apparently related to previous kitchen fires in the area, but without any sense of urgency or recommendation for further preventive action.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake will kick off the 2018 campaign on the road against FC Dallas. With loads of promising talent on the squad, the “Texas curse” is irrelevant ahead of Saturday’s match.

It’s here. It’s finally here. After what seemed like a 10-year offseason (was it really only four months?!), we’re inching closer to opening day of the 2018 MLS season. This year, Real Salt Lake has a doozy to kick things off as they travel to Frisco, Texas to take on FC Dallas in their first meaningful game of the year.

What Texas curse?

We all know by now that RSL has had a rough time in Texas, only winning three games overall through 31 games played against FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo...
