Ways to help lower soaring rent prices | FOX 7 Austin

on

SUMMARY: A recent study found that people living in some of the fastest-growing cities in the country, including Austin, Texas, need to make at least $85,000 a year to afford rent. Rent prices in Austin have increased by 8.2% in the past year and 25% in the past two years. Rent is the largest part of the monthly budget for 35% of households, which can be a significant financial burden. Ways to cut down on monthly rent payments include pre-paying rent, signing up for auto-pay, negotiating a two-year lease, and offering to do repairs or maintenance. Boosting credit scores and considering different neighborhoods are also options.

SUMMARY: The University of Texas system is disciplining students arrested during Pro-Palestinian protests, including temporarily withholding degrees. Nearly a month after UT Dallas's graduation, criminal proceedings and disciplinary actions remain unresolved for some students. Despite a return to normalcy on campuses, UT Dallas and UT Austin are enforcing measures against students arrested for criminal trespassing after refusing to dismantle their protest encampments. The universities emphasize that these actions are for policy violations, not the act of protesting. Disciplinary measures range from warnings to withholding degrees, with sanctions lifted once the conduct process is completed. UT Dallas declined to comment on ongoing measures.

The University of Texas system is taking disciplinary action against students arrested at pro-Palestinian protests last month. Part of the punishment includes temporarily withholding degrees.

SUMMARY: Doyle Tipton, a registered low-risk sex offender in Hunt County, is accused of attempting to kidnap and sexually assault a 10-year-old girl near his secondary address in Dallas County. The girl, who had been reported as a runaway, managed to escape and sought help at a nearby fire station. Tipton, who has a history of multiple sex crime convictions, reportedly tried to drive the girl away in a red van after picking her up. Tipton's neighbors, unaware of his offender status, expressed shock. Authorities are investigating Tipton's involvement in other cases. Tipton remains registered with Texas DPS and checks in annually.

It appears Doyle Tipton was not living at the home he reported to state registry officials. Instead, he was living in an apartment complex near parks and schools and just blocks away from where he allegedly kidnapped a 10-year-old girl.
