Open in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowOops! Greg Abbott's office released the Social Security numbers of 13 million Texans the other day. They think they have them back, thanks to quick-thinking lawyers who are fighting against Texas' new voter ID /suppression law. Texas Tribune has the latest status on the court battle over that.

Via the Lewisville Leader, some coverage of the Council of PTAs LISD Candidate Forum on Tuesday night.

Last night at Tierney's in Old Town Lewisville, candidates for various elected office showed up for a Karaoke-style forum that gave voters a chance to interact with candidates in a less formal and more relaxed setting. LISD Board candidates Kathy Duke and Paige Shoven in Place 1, and Trisha Sheffield for place 2 were there. Councilman Neil Ferguson was there, as were Mayor Dean Ueckert and his challenger, Winston Edmondson.

Here are Constable Candidate Barry Minoff and Sheriff candidates William Travis and Jesse Flores singing "Bad Boys":

And here's Mayoral candidate Winston Edmondson covering George Michael. (also via Kyer)

Mayor Dean Ueckert sang a song that he has sung on the David Letterman show before, The Crawdad Song. LISD Board candidate Paige Shoven sang a customized rendition of Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup", complete with "Vote 4 Paige" green Solo cup props.

A reader asked for an update on Lewisville's sex offender residency ordinance case. Lewisville is facing a federal lawsuit over constitutionality of restricting where former sex offenders can live. The latest status is that the City's attorney in the case has filed for and received an extension for time to answer the complaint. The City has until May 2nd to answer. At that time, we'll post a copy of the response. The City's law firm is Messer, Campbell & Brady, LLC of Frisco.

Is Oncor at risk of bankruptcy?

The KeystoneXL pipeline is not the only one planned to transport tar sands oil. Enbridge is planning to transport tar sands oil through the 670 mile Seaway pipeline which crosses tributaries feeding Lake Lavon.

A Durham Transportation bus supervisor restrained a disruptive student and refused to turn him over to his mother until police arrived. The trouble with any sort of thing like this that happens with the schools is that you only ever get one side, which is that of the student or parent. The district is constrained by privacy laws. We don't know what the boy was doing. Still, I think the best thing to have done would be to release the boy to his mother, but still talk to police and let them decide whether he needed to be detained.
