Texas has sued the federal government 23 times since President Obama
was first elected and the public shouldn’t expect that tension to ease
now, a report on KERA/90.1 FM
said. UT Arlington political science professor Victoria Farrar-Myers
said Texas’ Republican leadership often rebels against new rules and
stricter enforcement. “Given the kind of state we are in wanting to see
less federal control and more state control, I think you are going to
continue to see more tension over the next four years,” she predicts.
Help for veterans
reported on a new $1.25 million grant UT Arlington has received from
the U.S. Department of Education to aid veterans. The Upward Bound grant
will provide money for counseling, mentoring and tutoring for veterans.
UT Arlington distinguished alumnus Shirlee Gandy was featured in Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Dallas Morning News
stories about the unveiling of a new John F. Kennedy tribute in Fort
Worth. Gandy, who co-chaired the JFK Tribute with her husband, Taylor
Gandy, said the display tells a story of an important day in history.
The couple also donated the money to buy the sculpture.
