If I say "strong, smart and bold," who would be the first person to come to your mind? My answer would be the female half of the Clinton administration. I'm not a big fan of ol' Hill, but she's certainly not lacking in any of those areas. And look where it's landed herin Congress with her own shot at a chance to be the leader of the free world. Go, girl. On Friday, Girls Incorporated of Tarrant County will host its 3rd Annual Strong, Smart and Bold "No Limits" Luncheon at the Arlington Convention Center, 1200 Ballpark Way. Inside Edition's Deborah Norville will be the guest speaker. Doors open at 10 a.m.; the luncheon and awards presentation is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $70. Registration forms are available at girlsinctarrant.org. For more information contact Stephanie Smith at 817-468-0306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fri., Aug. 18, 10 a.m.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
