Farmer's Branch lost their appeal over their illegal rental ordinance in Federal Appeals court.

The people of Farmers Branch have now spent $4 million on this.
In the Lewisville Mayor's race, both candidates now have Facebook Pages, and if you judge by likes, they're in a much closer race than it will probably end up being: - Dean Ueckert (40 likes) - Winston Edmondson (38 likes) Edmondson's page prominently features the Gadsden flag so that Tea Party members will identify. Ueckert says his campaign website will be live as soon as today.
