Fort Worth City Council members and top city staffers climbed onto a bus Tuesday and took a tour of the Stop Six neighborhood in East Fort Worth. The historic African-American neighborhood has long struggled with high crime, high unemployment and low incomes. Now, the city is trying a new approach to make life better for the people who live there.

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price gave her third State of the City address Thursday. Technology was what she came back to again and again in her 20-minute speech.
