From The Newsroom: Football Fans Flock To Cotton Bowl; The Most Popular KERA Stories Of 2015

Gus Contreras / KERA News

The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom: One of the school systems in the tornado zone is scrambling to reopen next week. No Garland school buildings were seriously damaged, but there are all sorts of complications – displaced families, disrupted bus routes, destroyed bus stops.

The Garland school district has launched an online questionnaire for families and a phone bank with 15 operators, some who speak Spanish. Figuring out bus routes is especially tricky. Spokesman Chris Moore says parents can choose to send their kids to any of the district’s schools.

Two looks back: one at our most popular online stories of 2015, and another at the year in visual art.

TCU fans are reeling at quarterback Trevone Boykin’s arrest last night outside a bar in San Antonio. He’s accused of punching a police officer, which is a felony. He won’t play in Saturday’s Alamo Bowl.

Meanwhile, Arlington’s been overrun by Michigan State and Alabama fans in town for the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium.
