Congratulations are in order to eight schools in the Killeen ISD district that were recognized as purple star designated campuses by the Texas education agency. Mike Morath, who is the Texas education commissioner, says campuses with a purple star designation let military families know that they are dedicated to providing the best quality education experience for their children while in Texas public schools.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
