Trampoline Parks Are Dangerous. Last night, Steve Stoler did a story for WFAA about how dangerous and unregulated trampoline parks are. Kind of a “no duh.” My 14-year-old is still recovering from a broken ankle sustained at Jump Street. After the City Council shuts down Uber in Dallas, I suggest they turn their attention to trampolines.
Man Drowns in Golf Course Pond. A maintenance worker was trapped under a mower and drowned in a pond at The Courses at Watters Creek, in Plano. This was the second drowning at the golf course this summer. It’s obvious what needs to be done: the City Council needs to rewrite Dallas’ code to outlaw golf course ponds. I know the Dallas City Council has no authority over Plano. But it should.
Face-planting Skateboarder Is at Large. Flower Mound police are looking for a skateboarder who tried to jump a gate at a city park but didn’t make it and instead broke the gate on his way to landing on his face. You can watch video of the skateboarder failing. Note to Dallas City Hall: skateboards and gates ought to be outlawed.
