Leading Off (8/30/15)

It's Tuesday. Again.

DPD Likely to Hire Additional Cops More Slowly. Chief David Brown initially wanted to hire 549 new cops next fiscal year. But that would cost $20.3 million. So it looks like the city manager will get him to more gradually add to his ranks.

Frisco Freaks Over School Tax Defeat. After voters last weekend shot down a 13-cent property tax hike to support Frisco ISD, the district will need to cut about $30 million from its budget. Measures under consideration: increasing class sizes, reducing staff, freezing salaries, and making students pay a $300 fee for extracurricular activities. I don’t get it. Why move to burbs for great schools and then not pay what it takes to keep them that way?

Mountain Lion on Brookhaven College. The school is warning students about a bloodthirsty, man-eating beast spotted on campus. It was last seen Saturday afternoon, but new tracks were found yesterday. (I might have embellished a bit.)

Bo Dallas Arrested at DFW Airport. Dallas, I gather, is a WWE wrestler. Over the weekend he was kicked off a flight for yelling at the crew and then subsequently arrested in the terminal for being stinking drunk
