News roundup: Bastille Day, killer, storm, football

newsThe New York Times ran a story, via Texas Monthly and the Texas Tribune, about Bastille on Bishop and La Reunion colony. The writer waits until the third paragraph to mention that Oak Cliff is in Dallas, which makes me think people know about us, like even in Austin.

FoxDFW used its “Whatever happened to…” segment to remind us of mass murderer Abel Ochoa of Oak Cliff, who killed his whole family in 2002.

WFAA set its weather story about the Monday storm in Oak Cliff.

Former Carter High School Football player Arthur Muhammad is working on a film about the 1988 Carter football team, which won the state 5A championship. The team was stripped of its title after several players were found to have been academically ineligible. Also, several players on the team were convicted of armed robbery after a string of hold-ups in the summer of ’88.
