Hey, neighbors! It’s me, Nicole Fallon-Peek, your host of the Dallas Daily. Here’s what you need to know about what’s happening in town.
But first, today’s weather:
Patchy low clouds and fog. High: 54 Low: 36.
Here are the top three stories today in Dallas:
- Dallas nonprofits are preparing to accommodate migrants from El Paso. North Texas faith-based non-governmental organizations, including Faith Forward Dallas, view their role as welcoming new neighbors to the area. Andy Stokes of the Thanks-Giving Foundation said, “Our role really is to extend the generosity and gratitude that Dallas is known for.” (NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth)
- Eric Brian King of Dallas has been arrested and accused of carving Nazi symbols into a Beverly Hills menorah. Surveillance video led to King’s arrest on charges of felony vandalism and a hate crime. Smith’s case can be monitored using online Los Angeles County jail information, which showed he was scheduled for an appearance on Tuesday. (NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth)
