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. Deep Ellum finally gets a neighborhood grocery store. Brandon Castillo, founder of Deep Ellum Outdoor Market, is opening Deep Ellum Postal & Grocer next week at 3100 Main St. The space was most recently a vintage shop with an old-school mailbox center.

2. Woman falls to her death at Six Flags Over Texas. Rosy Ayala-Goana, 52, died while riding the Texas Giant roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington on July 19. Witnesses reported watching a woman fall out of her seat as the roller coaster reached a peak. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
3. It's a girl for Dallas Maverick Dirk Nowitzki and wife Jessica Olsson.

5. Where Tony Romo goes, do the Dallas Cowboys follow? Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and his wife, Candice, are building a new house in Glen Abbey, a gated community in Far North Dallas. The neighborhood sits smack in the middle of Keller Springs Road, Westgrove Drive, Dallas North Tollway and Preston Road.
