    The Advocate - Jackson Vickery - 24 Aug 2017

    East Dallas is packed with dog lovers, but where is Fido welcome to join his humans for a beer, perhaps with his own dish of water? We’ve got you covered with an interactive map of our neighborhood’s pup-friendly places online at
    lakewood.advocatemag.com/dogdining. Here’s a sampling of places you and your four-legged friend can visit together.

    Slater’s 50/50
    2817 Greenville Ave.
    Who says a dog can’t be wined and dined too? Here, your pooch has their own menu where they can order a 50/50 patty (half beef, half turkey), or bacon or chicken strips.

    Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House
    1154 Peavy Road
    Enjoy a brew (or two) with man’s best friend on Goodfriend’s pup-friendly patio.

    TOASTED Coffee + Kitchen
    5420 Ross Ave. #180
    Bring Fido to brunch with a wide array of avant-garde toast combinations.

    Veritas Wine Bar
    2323 Henderson Ave. #103
    What’s better than a glass of wine? Vino with the fur baby.

    Houndstooth Coffee
    1900 N. Henderson Ave.
    A morning run or walk with the pup would not be complete without
    a cup of joe at the aptly named shop.

    See all the dog friendly dining options in this interactive map:

    Oktoberfest 2016

    The Advocate - Carol Toler - 18 Sep 2017

    http://lakehighlands.advocatemag.com/2017/09/prost-exchange-club-planning-oktoberfest

    Exchange Club members are busy planning Oktoberfest 2017, the club’s 7th in Lake Highlands and 2nd at Flag Pole Hill. The Saturday, Sept. 30 event will run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

    Music will include live bands including Rymin’ n’ Stealin’, a Beastie Boys tribute band, Petty Theft, a Tom Petty throwback featuring Mike Rhyner of The Ticket’s Hard Line sports radio, Pearl Gem, lovers of all things Pearl Jam, and Parker Twomey, Lake Highlands’ own heartthrob.

    There will be food from Kuby’s, One90 Smoked Meats, Urban Crust Wood-Fired Pizza (owned by Lake Highlands’ own Gisellu family), Shady’s Burgers & Brewhaha (also a product of LH), AwShucks Oyster Bar, Pokey O’s Cookies & Ice Cream, Bahama Buck’s Shaved IceHaute Sweets Patisserie, Crepe Crazy, Steel City Pops, Lone Star Kettle Corn and Oma’s German Treats. You can quench your thirst with drinks from Wild Bill’s Olde Fashioned Soda Pop, or try something a little stronger with a creation by Oak Highlands Brewery, owned and operated in Lake Highlands.

    Tickets may be purchased here and you can become a sponsor here. Proceeds will support the Club’s many community projects and provide college scholarships for graduating Wildcats. Over the past 12 years, LHHS students have received more than $1 million in scholarships based on achievement and need.

    You may read about last year’s Oktoberfest and see photos here.

    deep pothole with caution cone

    https://lakewood.advocatemag.com/2017/09/12/street-win-repair-lottery-check-find/

    As the 2017 bond project list take shape, District 14 in East Dallas is proposed to receive almost $90 million, with over $33 for street repairs. In a Facebook post, District 14 councilman Philip Kingston wrote, “What these mobility projects mean is that you will see a real, substantial improvement in the condition of the streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, and alleys that you use every day.” He also noted that the projects won’t include projects that span multiple jurisdictions, such as the 3G intersection, which receives funding from the state.

    Kingston goes on, “And if you don’t see the project you care about funded here, don’t lose hope. I am also still securing grant funds from the feds and the state.”

    See all the street repairs planned in each council district here (District 9 streets are still finalizing, but will be added to the link when they are done.)

    important fundraiser for the JL Long PTA because it provides many of the school's needs. We appreciate your support in our efforts to make our school the best it can be.
    If you are interested in registering for the run, please visit our website,
    jllong.com. If you are not a runner, feel free to stand alongside the route and
    cheer for our runners. We hope to see you there and bring your neighbors!

    Equifax was hacked a few weeks ago and over 140 million identities have been stolen. You can read more about it here. 

    https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/09/so-equifax-says-your-data-was-hacked-now-what/

    Equifax has a page to see if your ID is in danger and you can also receive a year of credit protection from them for free, regardless of the status of your identity. 

    Here is a tidbit of info to know about this. Credit Card numbers were not stolen. The data that was stolen was Social Securities, Dates of Birth, Addresses and other pieces of information that cannot be changed. That means that it might be two years or more before the identity thieves use the data to get a new card or file for a tax return or anything else that thieves use other identities for.

    So stay alert. Identity theft is one of the largest problems in the US and the rest of the world.

    Hello, everyone,

    We continue our 2nd & 4th Saturday maintenance program at our pollinator garden this coming Saturday, September 9th8-10AM.  If you can help, bring your hat, gloves, and a hand tool.  Keeping the beds’ borders clean is the main maintenance chore; it’s not hard work but something that needs to be regularly done.

    At 10AM, Heath Quinnelly will host a special tutorial on making Mason bee houses (see attached PDF).  Bring your children or a friend and take home a bee house!

    As always, parking is along East Grand, between Tenison Memorial Drive and Blair at the northeast edge of our neighborhood.  We hope to see you then!
