Closed lakes, DISD auction, fake dentist.

A handful of area lakes closed for the rest of the summer due to water damage. Just what you’ve been waiting for: a list of what is opened and closed this summer thanks to the rain.

Dallas ISD auctions off overbought school supplies. Spring cleaning has come and gone but if you’re in the market for cleaning supplies, then you’re in luck. The Dallas ISD is auctioning off 89 cases of soap, 264 cases of glass cleaner, and 700-plus cases of toilet tissue. The toilet tissue, for instance, will be sold for $1 a case, but were actually purchased for $34.87 two years ago. Why’s all this happening? If supplies sit for more than a year they’re either a) tossed out or b) auctioned off.

Fake dentist allegedly pulls five teeth from woman. Erika Martinez turned to a procedure in her living room after a clinic said they’d charge her $9,000 to fix her teeth. Mario Alberto Sabillon-Mejia posed as a dentist and quoted her $1500 for the procedure. She paid him $500 up front. He and his assistant were arrested on Wednesday and he posted $3500 bail yesterday.

Sex offenders attend a conference at the Magnolia. Cameras were, for the first time, allowed at a conference where around 100 sex offenders from around the country met up to talk about reforming sex offender laws and “advocate for change.”

Mavs take Justin Anderson in the first round. Yesterday in the first round of the NBA draft, the team took the junior from University of Virginia. “Justin is a unique kid,” Carlisle said. “He’s a three-year guy. He’s gotten better each year. He’s gotten stronger and we feel he can play either the two or the three. He has an NBA body, one of the strongest kids in the draft, positionally. And he’s in a good position coming here. We have to fill roster spots. We need to get younger. He makes a lot of sense for us.”
