Oct 23, 2017

The top local stories this evening from KERA News:

Early voting started Monday for next month's elections and there are several local items on the ballot. Dallas voters will decide on a $1-billion bond package, and voters in the Fort Worth school district will vote on a $750-million bond proposal. 

There are also seven state constitutional amendments on the ballot and the ballot language is lengthy, so we're going to explain Propositions One and Two. KUT's Ben Philpott talked with David Brown, host of Texas Standard.  

Other stories this evening: 

  • You’ve seen them driving along lonely Texas highways, or tucked away in the odd corner of an otherwise urban landscape: the bones of towns that time forgot. Ghost towns.

Today, KERA’s Stephanie Kuo reports on the ghost town that made Dallas the city it is today.
