The start of school also means the return of flashing school zone lights.

The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: It’s the first day of school for many North Texas kids. While a familiar face is leading the Dallas school district for now, a new face is at the helm in Fort Worth.

Also, patients with depression who have sleep problems tend to suffer from insomnia. This edition of Vital Signs tackles the opposite problem – hypersomnia.
