Feral hogs, phantom tolls, and the Mavs' first three-game skid of the season. But hey, free parkland!

Belo Foundation Buys Land For Farmers Market Park The non-profit purchased 1.57 acres straddling Wood Street in hopes that it helps fulfill the city’s plan for the 3.8-acre park outlined in the 2013 Downtown Parks Master Plan. There is a catch: the city has no money available to snatch up the rest of the two-plus acres.

NTTA Customers Receiving Phantom Bills Maybe this is all a backdoor way to pay for the Trinity Tollroad.

Mavericks Lose Third in a Row It’s the first three-game skid of the season for the Mavs, at a time when the team can ill afford it. Both the Clippers and Rockets have passed the Mavs in the Western Conference, and the suddenly surging Spurs sit only one game back. Dallas heads to Houston tonight, then gets a relatively easy Miami-Orlando-Minnesota stretch before heading to Golden State. Pretty much need to take three of four before that game to keep from falling into seventh in the West.

Feral Hogs Tear Up Cedar Hill There are so many wonderful turns of phrase in this story, but I do have one minor quibble with this one: “He was walking his two dogs when a cage filled with a whole lot of hog came into view.” If you ever get the opportunity to use the expression “whole lotta” you have to take it. Now, for something completely different.
