The Texas Association of Realtors reports home values in North Texas are up nearly 9 percent over this time last year. Though the economy is booming, Rev. Gerald Britt of CitySquare says that growth is leaving out folks who are barely making ends meet. 

Gerald Britt says County Commissioner John Wiley Price's arrest created an "incredible sadness" in the African American community.

A 107-page federal indictment of County Commissioner John Wiley Price and three others painted a picture of conspiracy, tax fraud, and nearly $1 million in bribes. Rev. Gerald Britt says that’s not the whole picture. Britt, who’s vice president for public policy at CitySquare, wrote an op-ed column in today’s Dallas Morning News about the case and sat down with KERA.
