  1. Construction Updates - 09/28/2015 Skyhouse Victory Park and The Ascent looming over the American Airlines Center - Home of the Dallas Mavericks (NBA) and Dallas Stars (NHL) Cineopolis takes shape in the distance. Katy Station rises just beyond the new Camden Apartments in Victory Park
  2. Spent the holiday weekend in the quintessential skyscraper city...HOUSTON! From our base of operations at the soaring Hyatt we had a wonderful time exploring the wide streets and impressive architecture of this giant metropolis.
  3. Perhaps, but John Wiley Price has nothing to do with Dallas city government. He is a County Commissioner.
  4. BATON ROUGE The Capitol Building built during the Great Depression in 1930-32 stands 34 stories and 450 feet tall. Still the tallest state capitol in the U.S. Huey P. Long - The Kingfish The powerful Governor and U.S. Senator who ruled Louisiana with an iron fist is buried beneath his statue. 49 steps form the Grand Staircase toward the entrance to the Capitol of Louisiana. Each step has the name of a state and the year of its admission into the Union - with Alaska and Hawaii sharing stair number 49.

(And, yes, they are wearing out that tag line.) Other than that there's no way to tell where any broadcast is originating since they routinely show images of both city skylines and try, effectively I might add, to balance the news coverage to cover all corners of the MetroPlex.
  12. Houston edges out Dallas in GDP race 08:21 AM CDT on Thursday, September 27, 2007 By BRENDAN M. CASE / The Dallas Morning News Bad news in the battle between Dallas and that other large town to the southeast: Houston edged out Dallas in a new ranking of the largest U.S. metropolitan economies. The Houston area's gross domestic product came in at $316.3 billion in 2005, a hair ahead of Dallas-Fort Worth's $315.5 billion. That's one of the conclusions in a new study by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, a unit of the U.S. Commerce Department. The report attempts to measure total output by metropol
