 Editor's note: Another week has come and gone, and there's a lot we all probably missed. But we're looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:

1. Edgefest 2014 lineup goes gently with Beck and The Avett Brothers. Edgefest, the annual music festival hosted by 102.1 KDGE-FM returns on April 26 to Toyota Stadium in Frisco, with some righteous acts, including The Avett Brothers, Bastille and Beck. The full list includes 14 bands, and the overall vibe seems consistently gentle.

2. Primo's Tex-Mex spot in Uptown Dallas gets snapped up by ex-Sfuzzi team. There's a new concept going into the old Primo's Tex-Mex space on McKinney Avenue, and it's coming from folks who know the Uptown scene pretty well: Brandon Hays and Phil Schanbaum, the team that used to run the also-recently-closed Sfuzzi.

3. Top Pot Doughnuts picks Dallas for first shop outside of Seattle. Dallas' nascent doughnut scene will get a boost this spring when Seattle's Top Pot Doughnuts opens its first branch here outside of its hometown. Top Pot co-founder Mark Klebeck confirms that the chain will open a store on Northwest Highway at Hillcrest.

4. Keller black widow Michele Williams rejects plea deal and opts for murder trial in husband's death. In a shocking twist, a Keller woman who had previously reached a plea deal with Tarrant County in the death of her husband no longer says she’s guilty. Upon hearing Michele Williams profess her innocence, Judge Scott Wisch threw out her plea deal, reinstated the murder indictment and ordered a jury trial.

5. Dale Hansen shocks nation by not being stereotypical Texan. In a video that's since gone viral, WFAA sports anchor Dale Hansen takes those to task who would oppose gay football player Michael Sam. Hansen's speech has gained notoriety because websites claim to be shocked — shocked! — that a sports anchor from Texas would stand up for gay rights in such a manner.
