Man Drowns in Lewisville Lake During Boat Party. About 30 people were on the two-story boat. The man, 35, disappeared underwater around 8:30 Saturday night. He was found yesterday afternoon. And on Sunday, one boy (age 9) died and another (a 2-year-old) is in critical condition after being pulled from the water in separate locations in Fort Worth. I feel like I type this every week: please be careful.

Northaven Methodist Church Votes to Permit Celebration of All Marriages. By a 98 percent margin. Good job. Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriages.

Rangers Have Most Wins in the Majors. The Cubs still have a slight lead in winning percentage, but Your Texas Rangers have the most W’s after a 6-2 win over the Red Sox finished off yet another series win. Guys, I’m paying attention to baseball and it’s not even July. I don’t even know what’s going on.

Richardson Bar Sued For Not Cutting Off Man’s 8-Hour Drinking Binge. Gordon Savage says he started drinking at W.W. Fairfield’s at 6 p.m., kept at it past 2 a.m., then tried to drive home. He hit a concrete divider on 75 around 3. Savage wasn’t charged with drunken driving but he’s suing the bar for $1 million anyway.

Pete Sessions Says Democrats Should Be Investigated for Ethics Violations During Sit-In. The congressman said this on Inside Texas Politics. I think he should investigated for not being able to tie a tie better than me, someone who wears a tie maybe twice a year. He should also be investigated for having neg burns. It’s a very suspect look and makes me feel like he’s up to something.

FC Dallas Wins to Kick Off Second Half of the Season. The 2-0 home win over Real Salt Lake puts FCD just one point down of the Colorado Rapids in both the Western Conference and the race for the Supporters’ Shield. Two things: 1) the second goal was one of the prettiest you’ll see all season, with a Mauro Diaz bicycle pass (!) to Fabian Castillo, who finished it off perfectly, and 2) when Diaz is on, he might be the best player in the MLS.
