The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings' "dream team" of designers and planners unveiled their recommendations for the Trinity Parkway, which is quite different from the project's original plan. 

Also, how Texas Instruments has become a surprising player in the automotive industry. Finally, the Dallas Museum of Art has a new acquisition - an 18th century French masterwork.

You can listen to stories from North Texas weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
