Tyler Woman Gets The Keys To Her New Home

It's a dream come true for one East Texan woman.  Monday afternoon, the City of Tyler handed over the keys to a new house.  Delories Robinson moved out of her old and run down North Tyler home last September, only to return today to a brand new house.  Her old house was demolished and then reconstructed under the city's Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Assistance Program.  Delories says she's happy to finally be back home.

"Thank God I'm getting into my brand new home, and I am so proud," said Robinson.  "I will take care of it and keep it up, so I just thank you Jesus."  This is the fifth home out of nine the city will be reconstructing this year.  It's all part of an effort to improve neighborhoods, which the city says will hopefully result in additional construction in the area.
