1. Last night a woman at the Whole Foods on Preston was beaten and robbed of a $90,000 wedding ring. Police are soliciting tips to catch the perp.
2. I’ll give you the great lead to a story about a park that’s causing problems in University Park, and then I’ll make two predictions: “Ah, Barbara Hitzelberger Park, eastern parcel, version 1 — maybe you just bloomed too boldly for your little corner of the world. Designed to give delight, you got little but derision from the residents of University Park. Your black-eyed Susans looked like pompoms, they said, your bluestone benches like funeral biers.” 1. Avi Selk, the writer, is clearly new to the paper. He’ll stop trying so hard after he’s worked there awhile. Which is a shame. Really did like that lead. 2. One of my brothers or sisters from Park Cities People will point out in the comments that they had this story months ago.
3. Let’s end on a sad note, shall we? Ken Green is a professional golfer. His son died at SMU on Friday — which is just the most recent tragedy to befall Green. Unbelievable what that guy has had to deal with.
