Mike Modano Beer Soon To Slake Thirst. Rabbit Hole Brewing Company, based in the North Texas town of Justin, will soon make a German-style Kolsch called Mike Modano’s 561, the “561” referring to the number of goals Mo scored in his career. This leads to all sorts of possibilities. Here’s one: Nate Newton’s 213. (You might need Google to get that one. I’m not gonna spoon-feed you these jokes.)
CareFlight Takes Two Frisco Students to Hospital. During science class yesterday at Roach Middle School, an experiment led to a flash fire that sent one girl to Parkland via air ambulance.

Still think Parkland is a lousy hospital where only the ailing indigent wind up?
“Person of Interest” in Rape Cases Wants His Name Cleared. You know who is chapped and rightfully so? Alan Mason. That’s who. Someone called Crime Stoppers and said Mason “needed to get out of town because he had done something wrong.” Next thing you know, DPD says he’s a person of interest in the Fair Park rapes, and they roust him at 3 a.m., while he’s sleeping in his Arlington apartment. Yes, he had violated his probation on a DWI conviction, and that is why he sits in jail. But he’s not a violent criminal, and we now know that Van Dralan Dixson is the rapist. Mason, by the way, has a master’s in criminal justice. So he’s equipped to fully appreciate how hard he’s being screwed.
