    Council Votes Not to Suspend Its Rules, Which Means Jasso's New Map Won't Get Look-See

    ​In the end, the most surprising part of this afternoon's discussion at City Hall over whether to suspend the rules and allow redistricting brought back to the horseshoe is that there was no discussion at all. Sure, a few speakers came to the mic, among them Roy Williams and Marvin Crenshaw, the m ... More >>

    ​As much as we'd all like to hear it, NFL commish Roger Goodell isn't going to finish that sentence with "Patrick Peterson. Cornerback. LSU."That's because Peterson will likely be taken in the top seven picks of Thursday night's NFL Draft, and Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said yes ... More >>
