We began the week by sneak-peaking one of the latest Woodall Rodgers Deck Park renderings unveiled at yesterday's $9-million press conference. As promised, here are two others provided by the Foundation, which now needs but $17 million to cover amenities and park operation for the first three years of the deck's existence, which is set to begin some time early in 2012. One more look-see, yet another entry in our in-the-works coffee-table book Imagining the Future is a Kind of Nostalgia (h/t), follows.
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.
