    Heart Surgery Made Her Cry, the Dallas Cowboys Helped Her Stop!

    FORT WORTH — Lola Catron’s story has caught fire in the past week. A three-month-old with a congenital heart defect (CHD), her parents were put in a tough position one night in the hospital. “She was crying so much from her second surgery,” her mother, Laura, remembered. They were desperate. “One of her favorite things to do on Sundays is sit in her dad’s lap and watch the (Cowboys) game,” Laura Catron said. “My mom was like, ‘Let’s try it. […]

    Ruff Life: Bruce Takes Full Advantage of His Third Chance

    DALLAS — Bruce’s Ruff Life had nothing to do with his health and everything to do with his home. “Bruce was actually born in the shelter,” said Dallas Pets Alive! Marketing Director Haley Edman. The thing is, he fared just fine, at least at first. “When Bruce was a puppy, he was adopted out, and he had a loving home,” Edman said. Then old ghosts came back to haunt him again. “That new adopter fell on hard times and lost […]

    Vests that Repel Assault Weapons a Necessity, New DPA Prez Says

    DALLAS — It’s only been six months since the July 7 ambush shooting that took the lives of four Dallas Police officers and one DART officer. It’s still hard to process, particularly for the men and women who worked by their side. “We cherish who we lost, and we’ll remember them forever,” said Dallas Police Association President Sergeant Michael Mata. “But we have to learn from what happened.” Part of that learning process is recognizing that some of the equipment our […]

    Sustain Yourself! Dallas Public Library Adds Seed Library

    DALLAS — In the spirit of our beautification queen, Lady Bird Johnson, the Dallas Public Library is in the business of growing (and we don’t mean the building’s getting bigger). “A seed library is a lot like a regular library,” library employee Mark Draz said Monday. “It’s a place where community members can come get resources, in this case, seeds, for free.” It’s a seed library fully contained within an old, rolling card catalog. The message is to plant seeds […]

    Blake’s Snow Shack Wants Your Help for Chicago Hate Crime Victim

    SANGER, TX — “We’re just sick. We can’t imagine.” This past year was probably the best of 20-yer-old Blake Pyron’s life. He became Texas’ only business owner with Down Syndrome, he had his business logo on a NASCAR, and he had a national scholarship named for him, among other things. “Blake, you receive a lot of love, huh?” his mom, Mary Ann, asked him Sunday. “Love!” the cheery Blake responded. But for Blake’s family, seeing a mentally disabled 18-year-old in […]

    Volunteers Warm Bodies & Spirits on Year’s Coldest Day

    NORTH TEXAS — It may have looked like a yard sale, but there were no ski slopes to be found. (For those who don’t know, that’s when you wreck, and your gear covers the mountain.) On Saturday, it was just a group trying to bring some warmth to what the National Weather Service in Fort Worth called the coldest day in six years. “This is one of the coldest days of the year, so we could not have picked a […]

    Nerd Year’s Eve Honors Carrie Fisher & Marvel Genius Stan Lee

    DALLAS — “Carrie Fisher is Sci-Fi. Like, she made Sci-Fi for women,” said Cosplayer MCubed. Heavy praise for an actress who earned all of it with what she described as a big personality instead of looks. Less than a week after the Galaxy lost its princess, Carrie Fisher wasn’t mourned but celebrated at Dallas’ Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve. There was no surprise who was there with the inside info on Princess Leia. It was North Texas resident and the most […]

    Ruff Life: Gisele’s Model Life Has Been No Catwalk

    DALLAS — Being a model has a lot to do with the skin and the hair. Poor Gisele started out with neither. “When we first got her from Dallas Animal Services, she had no hair on her body,” said Dallas Pets Alive! Marketing Director Haley Edman. “Her body was full of scabs because she was suffering from a really terrible case of mange.” Lean and lanky weren’t appropriate ways to describe this little lady. She was like a rail, and […]

    ARGYLE, TX — In 2005, then 2009, and again in 2013 they were there towering over the crowds and making sure everyone had a front row seat. “It doesn’t matter what your beliefs are in it. It’s just a historic moment that it’s a peaceful transition of power. To be a part of that is just really special,” said GoVision Founder and CEO Chris Curtis. Now, GoVision is about to get yuuugggee, bringing their custom LED screens from small town […]

    Romo Returns, But Shaky Sanchez Costs Cowboys Season Finale

    PHILADELPHIA — Cowboys Nation, remember the Week One quarterback carousel? I’m sure you’ve tried to put out of your mind the days when Dak Prescott, Tony Romo, and even Mark Sanchez were all talked about as possible number one quarterbacks. As we know, Dak attacked his opportunity, starting every game so far and turning it into an NFC best 13-2 record before Sunday’s regular season finale. With the top seed in the NFC Playoffs locked up, though, we were back […]
