The Oak Cliff Streetcar project is still on track. Pun intended.

Here’s a profile of Oak Cliff Churches for Emergency Aid, which provides food and other help to Oak Cliff residents living in poverty.

Oak Cliff-based hair braider Isis Brantley lost her lawsuit against the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation that claimed the state violates the rights of African hair braiders. Brantley was arrested in 1997 for braiding without a cosmetology license and later fought for legislation that created a hair braiding license in Texas.

Seven people were injured Monday when a Dodge Caravan collided with a DART bus on Interstate 35 at Eighth Street. Traffic was backed up for hours.

    I’m baffled as to why they closed off the turn lane from eastbound on Colorado to turn left onto Beckley at the light?
