Leading Off (10/16/15)

City Hall drama, dry weather, fires, and an albino deer.

Dallas City Hall Soap Opera. The city attorney pushes for the felony prosecution of a city council member for yelling at a city employee, even going so far as to gather evidence for the case himself, despite the police chief telling him to stop and the alleged victim saying she didn’t want to press charges.

Prestonwood Baptist to Host Presidential Candidates. Sen. Ted Cruz, former senator Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, former governors Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush and Dr. Ben Carson are all confirmed to speak Sunday afternoon at the Plano megachurch.

North Texas Is Ablaze. Our recent unusually hot, dry weather has contributed to grass fires in Denton County, Navarro County, and Hunt County.

Albino Deer Haunts Denton. Turns out the mysterious creature sighted over the last few years isn’t a ghost. Or is it? (It isn’t.)

Cold Front Is Coming. After a record high of 95 yesterday, today’s weather is expected to top out at 87, with even cooler temperatures this weekend and next week.
