A D.C. firefighter has died a week after he was injured in a roadside crash in Pennsylvania, the fire department says.

Robert "Bob" Marshall was in critical condition after the crash along Interstate 81 on Friday, April 13.

Marshall was standing in front of his truck on I-81 that night when another truck rear-ended the vehicle, causing his truck to strike him.

D.C. Fire and EMS said Marshall was a 20-year veteran of the department.

A man was shot multiple times during the Friday evening rush at the Greenbelt Metro Station. News4’s Jackie Bensen reports.

Affordable Housing Not Easy To Find For Moderate Income Families In North Texas

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Shanay Wise bounces through her kitchen and dining area with a smile.

“They gave me two convection ovens! I keep three cake mixers over here,” Wise says, while pointing to her granite countertops.

Wise runs a small baking and organic pickling business, as well as working for a Dallas non-profit. The single mother of three became a homeowner in January. Despite an annual salary of $43,000, Wise found a three-bedroom home. “This house means so much to me because I wanted to live in South Dallas for years. With the programs SouthFair set up, they looked at my income and said hey, we can build you this,” Wise said.

SouthFair Community Development Corporation is the organization that assisted Wise in home ownership. The Community Housing Development Corporation, known as a CHDO, has built 50 houses, townhomes and apartments, mainly in the South Dallas/Fair Park corridor near Dallas’ Fair Park.

SouthFair works to ensure moderate income applicants can access home loans and find houses that fit low income budgets. “We build the houses, and we’re building more,” SouthFair Executive Director Annie Evans said Wednesday.

SouthFair’s Fair Park Estates resembles a quiet suburban subdivision. Residents were seen dog walking, bringing children home from school and jogging. The homes are two-story, and average 1,500 square feet in size. “We have the land, we have the demand, but what it takes to develop is funding,” Evans explained.

CHDO’s receive local and federal grants and loans to finance affordable housing programs. SouthFair officials say more South Dallas residents could access home ownership with improved community development funding.

“Over the past five years 1100 people come through our office. I think the momentum speaks to the neighborhood. Once we start construction, people come to us, they’re interested in us, then we have to stop, because the funding has stopped. We have to gear up that momentum again,” Evans said.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES FOR MCKINNEY, TEXAS, INVESTORS

McKinney is one of the booming, prosperous suburbs north of Dallas, Texas. With a population of nearly 200,000 people, it still retains a small town atmosphere, and many residents or investors have residential homes that they "hang onto" in anticipation of appreciation. Many need property management services and do not want to go to one of the large, impersonal Dallas property management firms. They want a local business, but they may not be able to find one directly in McKinney. For this reason, North Texas Property Management has launched an information page explaining that their company has deep roots in McKinney and really knows the area. Services that are available are detailed on the page such as "make ready" services to get a property ready to rent, the handling of all homeowner association issues, and – of course – the management of renters and rental issues. In this way, McKinney property owners can rest assured that they will get "big city" know-how with "small town" service, and their first stop is to learn about McKinney property management on the new informational page.
