Scot Miller owns Sun to Moon Gallery on Keller Springs Road in Carrollton. He's also on the advisory board of Groundwork Dallas, the 2-year-old nonprofit charged with cleaning up parts of southern Dallas -- including, especially, the Great Trinity Forest. And it's all about getting the kids involved. (Groundwork Dallas is, in fact, part of a much larger nationwide program that is supported by the Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Program and the National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program.) Yesterday, Miller posted to the YouTubes a six-and-a-half-minute film about the project and the Great Trinity Forest, which is worth a look this a.m. --Robert Wilonsky
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.
