    The city of Nîmes in France became Fort Worth’s ninth sister city Thursday.

    Nîmes Mayor Jean-Paul Fournier and Councilwoman Ann Zadeh, stepping in for Mayor Betsy Price, signed the municipal agreement at the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum.

    The process of becoming sister cities began in 2017 when a Fort Worth search team visited Nîmes.

    Twenty-one high school students from Nîmes arrived in Fort Worth Friday. They will spend 10 days on an educational exchange hosted by FWISD World Languages Institute and Fort Worth Country Day School.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
