Police Seek Help In Finding Suspects
A guy gets out of a black Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and cold-cocks another guy in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and then takes off. Marty Britton, 55, refused treatment at first, but later went to the hospital and died from head injuries. Police are looking for the assailant, who was captured on surveillance video. Relatives created a Justice for Marty page.
Camp Bowie Boulevard Construction Resumes
Detours, cones, and blockades are sending motorists in odd directions as construction on Camp Bowie Boulevard moves at a snail’s pace (if said snail had been run over by a diesel truck weeks ago). Blame the congestion on a drainage improvement project that will reduce flooding in the future, perhaps justifying all of today’s inconveniences. A city official says work will resume today, and the road should be back to normal in another week or so.
Fists Pump As Trump Stumps
Presidential candidate Donald Trump, speaking without teleprompters, fired up an estimated 17,000 supporters at a rally last night, vowing to reduce taxes, grow the economy, and stop the flow of illegal immigrants. Trump wants to tell ObamaCare “you’re fired” and show a generation of slick politicians how to run a country. Which brings the question, could he do any worse? FrontBurner’s on the scene report is interesting.
Dez Says He’s On The Mend
Dallas Cowboys wideout/cornerstone Dez Bryant tweeted that his foot surgery went great and he can’t wait to get back on the field. His absence is bad news for the ‘Boys, who face a tough schedule this season. Bryant could miss two months, maybe more. People who run pass routes for a living need their feet to not be broken. In the meantime, watch for wideout Cole Beasley and pass-catching running back Lance Dunbar to become more familiar to folks in the Northeast.
Brain Freeze Afflicts NFC East Rivals
The loss of Dez is somewhat mollified by the apparent mental collapses of our NFC rivals. The Cowboys were practically handed their opening day victory on Sunday night due to dumb decisions by New York Giants coaches and quarterback Eli Manning. Then on Monday night the Philadelphia Eagles did the same thing. Head Coach Chip Kelly was the deer in the headlights. These brain farts resulted in the Cowboys being alone in first place in the NFC East, with the Eagles, Giants, and Washington Redskins all staring at 0-1 records. This is going to be a fun year.
