The parent company of Albertson’s offered $7.6 billion to buy 1,300 Tom Thumb stores, including 106 in Texas and the one on Hampton Road. There’s speculation that could start a grocery price war. Sherri Hughes of Oak Cliff writes that big grocers need to be looking at our neighborhood.

Dallas doesn’t have $1.5 billion to build a toll road along the east levee of the Trinity River. But it still wants one.

More than 160 Frito-Lay workers will lose their jobs after the company closed its warehouse on Duncanville Road and ended production at an Oak Cliff plant.
