The investment company he co-founded is now 40 years old, but John McFarland, of Highland Park, continues to get a thrill from introducing it to people.

“What I really like about it is we’re a homegrown company,” he said. “And it’s a real treat for me to meet young people that want to go into this business [who] I really kind of consider homegrown, also.”

Sam and Nancy Major hadn’t planned on remodeling so soon after becoming the third-owners of Tart Bakery, but they didn’t have much choice.

The husband and wife duo bought the business on Lovers Lane east of the Dallas North Tollway in September of 2016. Three short months later, the pipes began acting up, causing flooding that impacted the bakery as well as the business next door.

Kuby’s Awaiting Repairs, But Serving Meals, Selling Meats

The shelves aren’t as full as usual and the entry is a mess, but Kuby’s Sausage House and European Market in Snider Plaza is selling groceries and serving meals again after a small fire on March 22 forced a temporary closure.

Karl Kuby Jr. said he believes the fire was started by a cigarette tossed on the pavement by someone walking by after hours. It likely got blown up against some leaves and eventually ignited a fire outside the building on the facade, he said.

The fire didn’t spread into the building, but because some smoke did, Dallas County inspectors required Kuby to get rid of all of his food merchandise as well as do a thorough cleaning of the store, he said.
