Leading Off (8/12/14)

It's the day before Wednesday.

Frisco Teen Charged With Killing His Parents. It appears that a 16-year-old shot his mom and dad. The kid is in custody but is not being identified because of his age. The victims are 48-year-old Ryan Callens and 49-year-old Maria Elena Callens.

Herrera’s Closing Its Maple Avenue Restaurant. They are looking for a new spot. But the move has some folks in tears. Quick suggestion: the Loon teams up with Herrera’s. Loony Herrera’s. Who’s in?

Orlando Scandrick Suspended. The Cowboys cornerback will miss the first four games of the season for partying with strippers and using the Cowboys bus to pick up girls at a nightclub on Sunset Boulevard. Ha! That would be funny, wouldn’t it? No, no, no. He was suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Wallace Hall Censured. The UT regent was reprimanded for misconduct and incompetence, but he’s still got his gig. Ask him if he’s bothered by it. Go ahead. Ask him.

    I was wondering if you have spoke with Crow Holdings about the closer of Herrera’s Cafe? I know since your report every media avenue has reported on it. Including you, Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, D Magazine, Nbc News 5 (Twice), Fox 4, CBS 11 and CW 33 are the ones I know of.

    I’m just a customer who what hate to see such a “Landmark” leave Maple Ave or the Oak Lawn area period. I don’t know if you have seen there Facebook but it’s been flooded with comments, and the restaurant has been bombarded with people.

    I know Mr.Crow wanted for Herrera’s to stay there because according to Nora when he came in to eat while i was there once she told me he wanted her to stay on Maple so he would build her a restaurant.

    Bottom line I know they close tomorrow, but would it not be great if you could keep Herrera’s on Maple? I Know Its a “Tax” problem that’s keeping them from moving to the new location. I would love to hear his take on what’s going on and can anything can be done. Thanks for everything!

    God Bless,
