How about a new pair of glasses for Thanksgiving?

November 22, 2017


Epiphany is defined as “a grasp of reality through one event usually simple and striking.” The occasion for me was the Fort Worth ISD 2017 Academic Chairs For Teaching Excellence (#FWISDTeachingChairs) held Nov. 15.

NCTCOG to Provide Transportation Update to Johnson County

May 17, 2018 (Arlington, Texas) – Johnson County’s population is projected to grow to more than 262,000 by 2045. This is an increase of nearly 100,000 from 2017, when about 165,000 called the county home.


This kind of growth is not new to North Texas. The region has a current population of over 7 million and consistently adds 1 million or more people per decade, putting needs such as transportation at the forefront.
