City of Lewisville Responds to Dam Story. Having read the dam story, Lewisville says, “According to information provided to the city, there is no immediate threat of failure … .” This is in response to what the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says, which is that the dam is “almost certain to fail under normal operations … within a few years without intervention.” Got that? Clear? Feel safe? Allen Eagles' Loss Helps Needy. The football team from Allen had won 57 games straight. Austin Westlake ended that streak Friday. To commemorate all those wins, folks in Allen are now donating $57 to Allen Community Outreach. Solid. Hat-Wearing Man Robs Garland Starbucks. I otherwise would not bring this story to your attention. A dude robs a Garland Starbucks. So what? Except that the story comes with this note: "Updated to reflect the proper name of the hat." Apparently the hat was originally referred to as a fedora, then updated to trilby. According to this site: "Know the difference. Stop lumping in the hat of awesome (IE private detectives and Indiana Jones) with the hat of douchebaggery (IE Men’s Rights Activists)." I'm sure the robber agrees. Suspected Child Predator Arrested. Tyler Anthony Gale was a sanitation worker for the City of Mesquite. Police say he exposed himself to school-aged girls on at least four occasions between May and December. He's also facing a kidnapping charge for trying to grab a girl. Good work, DPD.
