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.
