While we await some return phone calls: Twice today I've had occasion to dial up various local projects' construction webcams, including our old favorite the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge -- and this was before Mary Suhm acknowledged that, yup, you can cross that October opening off your to-do list, making her November '10 tah-dah a big 0-for-2. Which comes as no surprise to Schutze, who most days can be seen standing at the window staring to the west, muttering to himself about high winds and broken promises.
With a few minutes to kill I took the virtual tour of the other construction cams 'round town, three of which are aimed at the Arts District. (I miss some? I missed some.) Let's run 'em down on the other side.
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.
