Like I wrote Tuesday, the city's about to officially unveil its "Happy Trails" campaign intended to make those 104 miles' worth of hike-n-bike paths safer following the death of Lauren Huddleston on the Katy Trail in October and another car-on-cyclist collision two weeks later. By now, surely, you've visited the new Happy Trails Dallas website -- which, I see, has added quite the online store since our visit earlier this week, if you're in need of a "doggie ruffle tee."
The music video we came across Tuesday was yanked shortly after we posted it. In advance of the any-moment-now City Hall press conference, it makes its return above. And, yes, the city is also planning on making Junior Brown's rendition of "Happy Trails" available for keeps.
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.
