    Dickies Arena On Track for November 2019 Opening

    Along what was a quiet stretch of Montgomery Street west of downtown Fort Worth, several cranes tower into the air as about 700 workers are racing to build Dickies Arena.

    It's on track to open in November 2019.

    The 14,000-seat arena will compete with the American Airlines Center in Dallas for concerts, tournaments and other events.

    But Dickies Arena General Manager Matt Homan plays down any rivalry.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    "American Airlines Center is such a great fabulous facility, which is great for Dallas,” Homan said. “But we believe we're the Fort Worth market. And that extends west of (Highway) 360, out to Weatherford, up to Denton, even south down to Waco."

    The arena expects to bring in 800,000 thousand people a year to 140 events, including the stock show rodeo and the NCAA basketball finals.

    They also plan on hosting everything from concerts to high school graduations.

    "I can't wait until it opens,” Homan said.

    The arena will cost $540 million and is being built under a public-private partnership. The city of Fort Worth’s contribution is capped at $225 million.

    The venue will be owned by the city but run by a non-profit group.

    Canadian lawmakers wore hockey jerseys on Monday to honor the victims and their families of that tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 16 people.
    The bus was carrying the junior league Humboldt hockey team to a game when a tractor-trailer slammed into the bus.
    Sixteen were killed and thirteen people were injured in the crash.
    Today's remembrance was one of a number of events that honored the team and their families.
    Earlier the lawmakers honored Rusty Staub, a major leaguer who played for the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets.
