track record in the city of Dallas of being a city that doesn’t value our pedestrians and our cyclists as much as we do our vehicles,” council member Chad West said. “I think this is exciting to see this move forward. Obviously, I’m in full support of it.”

• New speed bumps and raised cross walks on at least four residential streets; • New or renovated pedestrian crossings at three spots; • Restriping one-third of road markings; • And implementing other road safety improvements at 15 intersections and five road corridors in high-crash areas.

The plan also recommends the transpor tation department brings forward speed lim it changes and updates to policies regarding speed limit sign placement, pedestrian cross ings, construction zones, and streetlights by the end of next year.  “This is our first time as a city saying that we will no longer be car-centric and that we are going to go forward and protect pedestri ans as well as cyclists, eventually scooter riders,” council member Omar Narvaez said.  More than 50 cities across the country have Vision Zero plans, including Los Angeles and New York, and, here in Texas, Austin, Hous ton, and San Antonio. Vision Zero originat ed in Sweden and is a “collaborative, nonprofit campaign helping communities set and reach the goal of Vision Zero — eliminating traffic fatalities and severe injuries among all road us ers — while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility,” according to its website.

The city had the sixth most traffic deaths in the country in 2020: 222 fatalities. Also, in 2020, the city had 66 pedestrian deaths, ranking fifth in the country. Officials es timate it could take about $30 million through a bond program to make needed

• Tracking yearly progress on these ef forts to spot improvements. “I’m really happy to see this being a pri ority for the city, and this final draft is a result of over two years of planning, pub lic engagement, research on best practices, data analysis, and coordination between city departments and Vision Zero task force,” council member Jaime Resendez said. “Our goals are ambitious, but they’re necessary to address severe injuries and traffic fatalities while increasing safe and equitable mobility across our city.”

This is our first time as a city saying that we will no longer be car-centric and that we are going to go forward and protect pedestrians as well as cyclists, eventually scooter riders.

Well, I have a submarine, but I’m using it — I thought a boat would be more useful, and it was something I had Victoravailable.Vescovo

6 August 2022 |

Keeping Up With The Perots?


Vescovo piloted a search that led to the discovery on June 22 of the USS Destroyer Escort Samuel B. Roberts (DE-413), known as the “Sammy B,” more than four miles below the Pacific Ocean — making it the world’s deepest shipwreck. The Sammy B sank during the Battle off Samar in October 1944 during which the U.S. Navy defeated the larger Japanese fleet east of the island of Samar in the Philippines. It fought three Japanese battleships, including the Yamato, which is said to be the largest ever constructed. The Sammy B carried 224 crew members, 89 of whom were killed.

Talk about pricey presents. Ross Perot Jr. donated a helicopter to the Dallas Po lice Department in December. Now the department has a 2019 Pro tector Targa 310 boat courtesy of another wealthy and com petitive Dallasite. In June, the Dal las City Council of ficially accepted the gift from St. Mark’s School of Tex as alumnus Victor Vescovo, co-founder of the private equity firm Insight Equity. “I was prompted to do that because there was a tonguein-cheek article by the editor of D Mag azine who called me out and said, ‘Hey, Ross Perot donated a helicopter, why don’t you donate a submarine?’” Vescovo said. “Well, I have a submarine, but I’m using it — I thought a boat would be more use ful, and it was something I had available.” Vescovo, a noted explorer and likely the first person to have descended to the bot tom of the ocean, climbed Mount Everest, and rocketed to space, was ready to replace theItboat.had served such purposes as pa trolling the ocean surface and errands back to shore during deep-sea exploration aboard a larger research vessel, Vesco vo said. “I decided since I didn’t have any other use for it, why not spend a little bit of money and refurbish the vessel and do nate it to the Dallas Police Department?” But giving such an extravagant gift isn’t so easy.When Vescovo initially reached out about donating the $250,000 boat, de partment leaders thought it may have been some sort of scam. “It took several efforts until they real ized that we were serious,” Vescovo said. The boat will now cruise Lake Ray Hubbard, which has a depth of about 40 feet.Police department spokeswoman Me linda Gutierrez described the gift as a generous one that would benefit offi cers assigned to the lake, which the de partment has pa trolled since 1972. “It will be used for service calls that come out on the lake,” she said. “The service calls could be enforcement re lated, water rescues, and water search es. It would also allow us to assist Dallas Fire-Rescue when they need assistance on theMaybelake.” the department should also thank D Magazine. Perhaps someone should ask Mark Cu ban, “What have you got that could help Dallas officers next?”

ed our grown Rugrat would al ways stay close so we can see her Rugrats grow up. How could she trade the best grandparents ever and the flatlands of Texas for ma jestic mountains, dry heat, and endless outdoor activities? As we pined away for the pre cious pups, we were thrilled when our daughter asked us to tend the twins for three days while she moved into a new home. In a snap, we booked flights, rented an SUV, car seats, and a VRBO close to a park. We made grand plans to visit the zoo, the aquarium, play grounds, and waterparks. By the end of the visit, our diapered divas would be begging for Mimi and Papa to stay forever. On the plane to Salt Lake City, I browsed through Zillow listings for small condos in the area. Sure ly my husband, the pleaser, would gladly work a few more years so that we could buy a third home to share the same zip code with our 529 account beneficiaries. The visit, in a word, was ex hausting. We had never babysat this dynamic duo for more than one night, and three nights was two, too many. We were beat. Feeding, changing, playing, and entertaining were never ending. I began to pray for naptime so we could get a break. How did we survive raising our own kids and working full time so many years ago? I counted down the hours until we returned our bubbly ba bies. I was glad I hadn’t mentioned the Zillow search. Three days felt like a lifetime with our granddaughters. Yet, when it came time to drop them off, my emotions swung like a pendulum. I found myself miss ing them before we had even tak en them out of their car seats. Like a video, my mind replayed the scenes of them pointing at “shocks” (sharks) at the aquari um, squealing with laughter as we chased them through the park, and imitating the roar of the lions at theOnzoo.the flight home, I once again found myself searching Salt Lake City real estate on Zillow.

By Karen Chaney Special Contributor Sarah Simon, a 2017 Greenhill School graduate, has taken up the cause of the wrongfully convicted. To that end, the daughter of Old Preston Hollow residents Dr. Stuart and Stacy Simon partnered with University of Pennsylvania classmates Carson Eckhard and Natalia Rommen to establish Proj ect ProjectHOPE. HOPE supports the day-to-day casework of The Lib eration Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Philadelphia exoneree Terrance Lewis in 2020. The foundation connects incar cerated Pennsylvanians with inno cence, wrongful conviction, or dis proportionate sentence claims to pro bono appeals attorneys. “We provide the necessary high-level paralegal and investiga tive support to these cases, signifi cantly lowering the barrier to entry for attorneys who wish to become involved in this important work,” SimonProjectsaid. HOPE also offers a comprehensive, community-led re entry preparation program. “The program is 16 weeks long and comprises a range of expert speakers who discuss vital compo nents of the reentry process such as financial literacy, job searching, ed ucation, and finding mentors,” Si mon said. A press release from Penn pro vided a summary of the inaugural year:“In the year since it got under way and backed by support from Penn’s 2021 President’s Engagement Prize, the project has helped free Jehmar Gladden, who spent more than 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit and graduated the first cohort of inmates from an in novative reentry program piloted at a state correctional institution.” Simon said receiving the Pres ident’s Engagement Prize was in valuable.Simon credited her family, Greenhill teachers, Gary Udash en from The Innocence Project, and Harry Ingram from the Dal las County Public Defender’s of fice for influencing and molding her. Knowing she wanted to pursue a career in human rights law, she chose to attend Penn because of the Criminology and Political Science Departments.Shegraduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa in May 2021 with a double major in crim inology and political science-inter national relations. Her plans include law school. Then, hopefully in five years, she will be a practicing attorney and involved in the work of The Lib eration Foundation and Project HOPE.Heradvice to those interested in doing similar work: “Connect with those who have lived experience, take their lead, and embed yourself in the criminal justice communi ty and join the fight with so many others who are dedicated to a more just future for us all.”

Sandbox VR Mockingbird Station With the virtual reality experience recently opened across from the Angelika theater, players in groups of up to six choose between six free-roam virtual reality experiences for $45 to $50. Participants don 20 pounds of gear with technology that simulates physical contact, such as zombies or other virtual reality creatures running into you.

So, opening Rodman Steele Studio in 2018, a business devot ed to music education, felt natural. The studio, located in the Incu bator@SMU, has 50 students, ages 2 to 85. It offers lessons in various instruments, such as guitar, voice, and other performance-related topics, like music production.

Voice instructor and SMU graduate Griffin Camacho is in the jazz Camachoband. said the bands dif ferentiate Rodman Steele Studio from other music education busi nesses.“[Steele] encourages us to be performers,” Camacho said. Even with a degree in voice from SMU, Camacho said he’s constantly learning and brings what he gains in performances to his teaching. “The more you perform, the more you learn, and the more you learn, the more you can teach to your students,” Camacho added. Steele said he believes that the personalized curriculum makes Rodman Steel Studio unique. He spends the first lesson getting to know the student’s interests ––both musical and non-musical. Throughout the students’ time at the studio, he prioritizes instilling confidence.“Every great musician has a great musician or a family of great musicians that inspired them to do what they do,” Steele said. “My job is to be that for other people when it comes to my education and teaching.”

Steele, who graduated from SMU in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in music, got his start in mu sic education, teaching private les sons to choir students at Highland Park Middle School. Steele participated in choir while attending Highland Park High School, describing the expe rience as his “favorite thing in the world.”He founded Rodman Steele Studio to create a place where peo ple could “be nurtured in their en joyment of music” through men torship, he said. “I’m very devout in the belief that it is a part of a mu sician’s life to pass on the tradition and teach the tradition to others.”

One memorable student for Steele was a high school senior who got his first guitar the Christ mas before graduation. He started lessons with Steele in January and bought himself an electric guitar six months later. At their next ses sion, the two spent the entire hour with the student improvising on the new guitar and Steele playing along with him. “I was so grateful that I could see in him the development from day one,” Steele said. Steele also founded the studio for the instructors, wanting to fos ter “an environment for fantastic musicians to make a living playing music, both performing and in structing.”Oneway Steele has accom plished this is by having bands, like the jazz and rock bands that in structors play in. Each instructor, Steele said, “is also a performing professional musician.”

WHAT MAKES A HOUSE A HOME? Agents, builders, interior design professionals talk favorite spaces

By Rachel Snyder

Javier Burkle Owner and principal designer, Burkle Creative Favorite Space: Dining Room “I love my whole home, but for me, noth ing compares to the dining room. We love to entertain friends and family, and we always set the table for a seated dinner in the dining room following cocktails. Our friends love our “golden egg” dinner parties — where the Christofle signature gold cutlery is the theme and centerpiece. I was inspired by intimate, cozy conversations, and evenings when I designed the room. From the mix of furniture, art, and vintage and antique piec es to my favorite Ralph Lauren chandelier, the room is very atmospheric — down to the hand-drawn ceiling by local artist Ash ley Braithwaite. The room is versatile, func tional, and above all, a beautiful, cozy spot to gather our favorite people for memorable meals and evenings together.”

Les Owens Founder, LRO Residential Favorite Spaces: Loggia “My favorite room in my house is not a room at all but open space. I love our log gia/pool and yard. We spend so much time outside year-round, and this area was a ma jor focus when designing the home. I want ed a very large living space; chairs and couch, with room for a large dining table and another space to cook and have dinner/drinks by the grill. We have heaters, (a) fireplace, and (air conditioner) on the loggia, so it’s truly a yearround space.”  Lisa Henderson Founder, Lisa Henderson Interiors Favorite Space: Children’s Bathroom “This may not be a traditional or typical response, but my favorite space in my home is my kids’ bathroom. This space was real ly tricky to conceptualize because it is a jackand-jill bathroom that my son and daughter share, and I wanted it to be a unique space that they both loved. In the beginning stages of the design process, I knew I wanted a classic tile that would stand the test of time paired with a fun wallpaper. After tirelessly looking, I wasn’t finding the right print that jumped out at me, but once I found this wallpaper by artist Car ly Beck for the Wallshoppe, I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. Not only does it have endless character and detail throughout, but my kids are big animal lovers, and I knew it would add that special touch for the end result I was searching for.”

Nora Clark Agent, Allie Beth Allman and Associates Favorite Space: Kitchen “The kitchen will forever remain the an chor in any house. It is where people naturally gather. The space needs to be both functional and presentational. When looking at chang es to increase your home value, the kitchen will almost always have the largest return on investment. In my home, the kitchen island functions as our family dining table, home work desk, buffet, and even bar when guests come over. Different trending spaces may come and go, but the kitchen is the classic sta ple in any home.”

Personal touches make a house a home. We asked real estate agents, builders, and interior design professionals who live and work in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow neighborhoods about the details that make their favorite spaces in their homes.

Kips Bay Decorator House

This year’s Dallas rendition of Kips Bay Decorator Show House is chaired by Jean Liu, Chad Dorsey, and Jan Showers, along with vice chairs Laura Falconer and Trish Sheats. The honorary chairs include Jamie Drake and Steele Marcoux.

The Preston Hollow home was selected for its “wow factor” and ability to house the work of about 25 designers, said Na zira Handal, director of special events and corporate partnerships for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, Inc. “Kips Bay Dallas 2022 will no doubt impress everyone who enters the property,” Handal said. “The scale of the home and the property is much bigger than previous years. The spaces are generous and have amazing views to the property, which is sit uated on a creek with two rear gardens.”

That’s community, and why so many people Trust Methodist. | August 2022 17

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House is celebrating its third year in Dallas from Sept. 23 to Oct. 23.

The concept was started by supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club to raise money for after-school programs in New York City. Since its 1973 start, the New York house has remained an annual occur rence, with a Palm Beach home added in 2017 and a Dallas one in 2020. Along with the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, this year’s Dallas show house will also benefit Dwell with Dignity (a non profit that creates soothing homes for fam ilies facing homelessness and poverty) and The Crystal Charity Ball (an organization that aims to support and contribute to Dal las County children’s charities). “This is such an important event for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and the de sign industry alike,” said Dan Quintero, the executive director of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Dallas community to the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas again this year and continue to raise critical funding for our kids and community.”

The space selected for Dallas’ show house boasts 12,470 square feet on a wooded, two-acre lot in Sunnybrook Es tates. The main home has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half baths. There are also sun-laden living spaces with glass walls, outdoor lounge areas, and a live creek that flows through the land scape. Also found on the property are a four-car garage, motor court, swimming pool, deck, and pool house.

This Preston Hollow home will open in September to celebrate design Maria Lawson

Are you looking to add a basic outdoor grilling center with a bev erage refrigerator and a beer tap? Or are you looking to create an outdoor living structure with a chef’s kitchen, alfresco dining space, cozy fireplace, well-appointed bar, resort-style pool, and new Addinglandscaping?agrilling center is rea sonably easy to plan and certainly more budget-friendly than an out door living space. If you envision creating an out door space as an extension of your house, you’ll need to engage a build er and architect with extensive knowledge and experience in these complex projects. If a new pool and landscape are part of the reimagined outdoor oasis, it’s critical for the pool builder and landscape designer to be part of the team early in the process. Having a realistic budget and timeline for designing and con structing your project is essential. Nobody wins when you invest significant time and money plan ning your new outdoor space only to discover the project cost is con siderably beyond your budget. A seasoned builder can provide you with expected budget ranges and timelines for your project. A trend we are seeing is the de sire to add features that extend the use and functionality of outdoor spaces in all seasons. Texas’ extreme summer heat can make entertaining outside unbear able without adequate air circulation and integrated cooling systems. Those pesky insects can also put a damper on outdoor enjoyment, so you might want to add automatic roller screens cleverly disguised into the new Winterstructure.months can be cold without ample heating systems to make your outdoor space warm andIncorporatingcozy. these features re quires a careful site evaluation of the existing utilities to ensure your home has the capacity to power and fuel the proposed equipment. Outdoor kitchens often include features similar to those found in side but with a caveat: Products used in outdoor spaces must be designed to perform in that environment. Cabinets are no exception to this rule and should be made of weath er-resistant materials like stainless steel, PVC, or masonry. Audio, video, and lighting au tomation — all controlled by your phone or tablet — also play a signif icant role in outdoor spaces. There’s nothing like watching a ball game or listening to favorite music while setting light levels for entertainment or relaxation. The key to a successful space is proper planning.

4209 Arcady Avenue HOUSE OF THE MONTH

Being only one of three Americans, Sampson hopes to calm his nerves before performing in front of millions. “I got pretty nervous the last time I did a competition,” he said. “But this time, I think I just got to go for it and hope for the best because I have been working so hard for this, so I’m looking forward to seeing all of my hard work pay off.” The competition is broken up into three sections and, with multiple elements totaling a contestant’s score, Sampson must impress the judges. “The scoring is subjective,” he said. “The judges grade us on Jeopardy-like questions that they’ll ask. Then I’ll recite my speech for them. And finally, I show off my talent using the Chinese yo-yo.”

The last two years have been the most difficult I’ve had in 45 years.” Her passion for the needs of the students is as palpable as it is infectious. “The whole reason I’m here is to be an ad vocate for the children, to be a voice for them,” Altick said. “Our motto is the yellow chair. The yellow chair always sat in my office as a reminder of — Is this decision right for the children? — because we only get one shot with them.”But 12-hour days didn’t leave much time for relationships outside of the work environ ment, Altick admitted. She hopes that changes with retirement. Her last day at Wesley Prep was May 31. “I’ll be cleaning my house,” she said, chuck ling, “reconnecting with friends, traveling, en joying our granddaughter, and finding a way to give back. I’m not sure what that will be, but I’m certain it will be something advocating for children — to be a voice for them still, just in a different place.” Her legacy at Wes ley Prep? She hopes that’s defined as “mak ing a difference in people’s lives” and “just doing right by folks.” “I feel very hon ored and blessed to have been a part of this great school for 45 years — amazing teachers, friends, and the most wonderfully engaged parents,” she said. Indeed, some teachers have worked along side her for more than 30 years.  Pondering winsomely, she added, “I’ll miss the children — the hugs and the kisses.”

Through his hard work and dedication, Sampson is confident that he will per form well and represent his country. “I’m really excited to compete,” he said. “I hope that all the new things I have been learning and all the stuff I’ve already learned will help me give a good impression to the judges.”

By Josh Hickman Special Contributor W hen Linda Altick started teaching at Wesley Prep some 45 years ago, she could not have foreseen the story of educational success and expansion to come.

Requests from families in the late 1990s prompted the school to expand into ele mentary grades. “It was a contro versial move for the church at that time,” she recalled. In 1998 came the initial firstgrade class, and in 2007, “Miss Linda” became executive di rector. Today, the pre paratory school has expanded to sixth grade, averaging 450 students. Students are primar ily from Preston Hollow and the Park Cities, though some have come from as far away as Lakewood and Irving. “I had always thought I would work until 70, and we had plans for that,” Altick, now 71, said. COVID changed that. “I wasn’t going to abandon the school during COVID,” she said. “We closed for the required three months, but we knew, as educa tors, that children learn best in the classroom.

Lovers Lane United Methodist became her home church when she moved from Houston, joined in 1964, and eventually became a vol unteer.“My undergraduate degree was in educa tion, and my master’s degree was in special ed,” Altick said. “In 1977, they said they needed a teacher, and I said, ‘I can do that.’” In 1981, she agreed to become preschool di rector, as long as she could also be the Mother’s Day Out director and combine the programs.

NEW LEADERSHIP Meg Fahrenbrook, formerly assistant head of middle school at Episcopal School of Dallas, began serving as Wesley Prep executive director on June 1.

the Chinese language, so when I heard about the competitions, I decided to give them a try,” he said. “I practiced my speech by writing and memorizing it with the help of my teacher. She also helped me learn a skill called Chinese yo-yo.” Last fall, Sampson broke his patella and had to undergo surgery to repair it. While recovering, he decided to learn more about Chinese culture. “When I got knee surgery in the fall, I lost time to practice, but I was able to explore more about China,” he said. “It led me to discovering each tournament.”Afterpersevering through his injury, Sampson believed he could compete in a few tournaments on his road to world competition.“Idecided to compete in the National Chinese Speech Competition,” he said. “I thought this would help prepare me for the DFW bridge competition.”

While Sampson has competed in speech and bridge tournaments, he knows the magnitude of the world bridge com petition.“The competition is televised all over China,” he said. “The competition was cre ated to show how well the Chinese lan guage is circulating throughout the world.”

Sampson has been practicing as much as he can to perfect his skills. “I started preparing in November,” he added. “Once I won the DFW tour nament, I continued to practice as many times as I can each week.”

Pencil in Cistercian Preparatory for a Robotics Championship Students learn teamwork while navigating computer, mechanical mishaps

Learning from Dallas ISD veteran teachers and TFA corps members, the rookie teachers had the opportunity this summer to better understand the North Texas community, schools, and students as they look toward the upcoming year. “The training has allowed us to really have a good understanding of different ways to help out different students in the classroom, so I think that’s what we’re going to be able to bring to Dallas ISD,” ButnerDallassaid.ISD’s partnership with TFA allows future classroom leaders to de velop, gain inspiration, and prepare to empower the next generation, said Shar la Hudspeth, Dallas ISD’s executive di rector of extracurricular and extended learning opportunities. This summer program is part of TFA’s nationwide, multipart pre-service experi ence that began in May and will extend through the first 90 days of school for all 2,000 new TFA educators. “Teach for America really [plac es] an importance on making sure that we’re doing everything we can to help the community,” Butner said. “We’re not coming in with our own plans and say ing what we want; we’re listening to the community and doing exactly what it is that they need.”

After qualifying for the inter national competition, Cistercian’s team, named Fusion Corps, made its way through eight qualifica tion matches before being part nered with Up-A-Creek Robot ics from Colorado, The Cheesy Poofs from California, and Knight Vision from Michigan for an April match between the other divisions’ winning alliances. Through practicing good team work, Cistercian and its group members advanced through three championship matches, ultimate ly attaining victory for all by a score of 142 to 108. “It was so incredible being able to work with and learn from such world class teams like the Cheesy Poofs and Up-A-Creek Robotics,” said rising junior James Novins ki, the team’s driver. “As the main driver of Fusion Corps, it was such an exciting but really nerve-wrack ing experience being alongside those teams and helping them on and off the Cistercian’sfield.”win did not come without a few glitches, however. The robot, aptly named Resil ience, endured a parts failure at the qualification match that was quick ly remedied using some pencils. “Those pencils probably were the reason that we got picked,” said rising senior Ryan Jackson, engineering co-captain. Later at the world championship, one of the key computers used to navigate the robot ran out of battery power before a critical match. “It was a pretty tough moment for us because the power cable wouldn’t charge the computer,” said rising senior Matthew Nguy en, a team member. “But we found the solution to that by using an al ternative cable in a different port.” Celebrations after the big win consisted of a good night’s rest for most members. But seniors Blake Harris and Nathan Comeaux hurried home to catch the end of their prom night. “The team lived up to the ro bot’s name, Resilience, and perse vered when it looked like our sea son might end,” said Rev. Mark Ripperger, robotics school liai son and science teacher. “We were honored to be selected for such a strong playoff alliance and enjoyed the relationships built in pursuit of the world championship.”

WHAT IS TEACH FOR AMERICA? An organization founded in 1990 that works with 350 communities across the country to expand educational opportunities for children.

Teach for America has welcomed near ly 100 first-year teachers to Dallas ISD for the fall to train through the organization’s new hybrid instructional model. The program included virtual and in-person teaching components covering hot topics in education today following the pandemic’s effects: instruction, learn ing environments, leadership develop ment, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

1992 by Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers, the competition allows teams of stu dents worldwide to design and build a working robot. Teams are presented with game and engi neering specifications every Jan uary, consistent with the annual competition’s theme. This year’s theme, Rapid React by Boe ing, centered around alliances of teams’ robots working together to accomplish tasks like shoot ing balls into a tower and climb ing monkey bars that increased in height under automatic pilot or remote operator control. “This year was by far the most complex robot we have ever built with a swerve drive, a passive climb, and an auto-aiming shoot er,” said rising senior Andrew Ol iver, programming captain. “We showed ourselves what can be done when you put your heart and mind into something you enjoy.”

Raquel Butner, a corps member for TFA, said one of the anticipated chal lenges this year is the continuing effect of COVID-19, including returning to the classroom for teachers and students. Still, this training was designed to ease that transition.“Ithink it’s just going to be a matter of doing the best that we can with our resources,” Butner said. “And just making sure we have a differentiated classroom so that all students’ needs are being met, whether they are behind or up to speed or if they’re needing to be challenged.”

Chemmalakuzhy is the executive director of the We R Love Foun dation, a Dallas-based nonprofit focused on health, homelessness, and education. Zhu is the found er and president of Hockaday’s Health Occupations Students of America chapter, so the two col laborated to raise money, starting with two bake sales. The bake sales raised $532. After that success, the team kept the momentum going by reaching out to companies (such as Poppy Flowers and the Dallas Garden School) and individual donors to round up more funds, resulting in the remaining $2,918. Before starting to fundraise, they reached out to the Dallas Life Homeless Recovery Center and found the nonprofit had 55 women in need of period products. Chemmalakuzhy and Zhu de cided that was the right nonprofit to support, and they were able to supply six months’ worth of pads and tampons for those women. “I just think it’s really inter esting because when we started, we really didn’t know where it was going to go,” Chemmalaku zhyComingsaid. from an all-girls school, Zhu said the partners are especially familiar with the ne cessity of affordable period prod ucts. She described it as a basic need like food, shelter, and water.

Two Hockaday School stu dents — incoming junior Ashley Chemmalakuzhy and incoming senior Claire Zhu — joined forc es to raise $3,450 and awareness to help those facing period pov erty in Dallas. “A problem that we’ve no ticed is the stigma around talking about this issue in the first place, which contributes to the issue of not having these affordable prod ucts,” Zhu said. The pair took the issue of pe riod poverty and used the plat forms of organizations they’re involved in to make a difference. | August 2022 27 By Maria Lawson

The pair has also been raising awareness about period poverty by creating bookmarks and in fographics for social media and holding meetings with their or ganizations’ members to inform them of the issue. Although their fundraising efforts are conclud ed, they plan to continue raising awareness through social media. “We did our part in helping and donating these products, but the best impact out of this would be if we could get other people our age and other teenagers in terested in serving our commu nity in this way,” Chemmalaku zhy said.

senior has emerged as one of the top kickers in Texas, with a booming leg that gives the Panthers a special-teams weapon many of their opponents lack. Early in the 2020 season, after Hill crest had an opening for a kicker, Mal phurs secured the job by nailing a 38-yard field goal on his first try. Later that sea son, he added a 45-yarder during a playoff game against Aledo. As a junior, Malphurs improved both his range and his accuracy, culminating in a pivotal school-record 57-yard field goal as the first half expired during a win over Seagoville.“Iwasreally not comfortable at all. I was freaking out,” Malphurs said. “I took a deep breath, he snapped the ball, and the rest is his tory. As I kicked the ball, the buzzer went off.”

New Challenge Awaits Rangers in Water Polo

6-foot-6 and

Unlike many schools in Texas this year, Jesuit Dallas isn’t start ing its water polo program from scratch. But for players and coach es, it almost feels that way. The Rangers have been a main stay in the sport for the past sev eral seasons. Still, as the Univer sity Interscholastic League begins sanctioning water polo this fall, Je suit will have a chance to grow its program further. “I have seen the excitement build over the past year,” said Jesuit head coach Jason Gall. “There’s definitely more interest on Thecampus.”Rangers finished with a 9-14 record during the 2022 spring season, which was the last sponsored by the Texas Inter scholastic Swim Coaches Asso ciation. The two years before that were cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The next morning, he got a call from SMU, wanting him to visit. Malphurs sub sequently began training with local kicking guru Scott Blanton and linked up with some recruiting services. “He’s truly changed my entire kicking form,” Malphurs said. “I went from barely being able to make 60-yarders to having a [personal record] of 70 yards.” Malphurs still trains with Blanton mul tiple times each week, in addition to partic ipating in full offseason workouts with the rest of the football team, at his insistence. “A lot of it is natural ability, but Reed is one of the hardest workers on the team,” said Hillcrest head coach Jacob Ramon. “He’s a leader on this team because of that work ethic. We’re very blessed to have him.”

Going into this season, we’ve kind of kicked it up a notch.” Where the spring was about building the foundation for a young roster, the offseason has fea tured more advanced workouts to suggest steps forward. “We got to see what the best looks like, and even though we didn’t really have a chance to beat them, we saw that we could com pete,” Gall said. Now the Rangers hope their progress will include a playoff ap pearance in their first UIL season. However, that won’t be easy in a dis trict that includes traditional power houses like Southlake Carroll, Flow er Mound Marcus, and Keller. “As long as you keep the guys motivated and not discouraged, let’s see how we can play with the top teams in the state,” Gall said. “If we’re going to qualify for post season, we will have to beat teams who finished ahead of us last year.” HILLCREST KICKER PROVIDES A RARE SPECIAL TEAMS

This season, he hopes to have an oppor tunity to break the state record of 63 yards or perhaps even the national record of 68 yards, which has stood since 1985. College interest has increased too, with Malphurs taking visits to TCU, LSU, Ar kansas, Texas Tech, Mississippi State, and others.

“I am a big believer in giving back to the community, and I was look ing for something that I wanted our office to be involved in,” Allie Beth said of a fateful dinner in 2000 with the pastor of People’s Missionary Baptist Church. “That November, my office went down and served his church meals and then again at Christmas time.” Her staff covered the pews with toys, beginning a tradition that would grow from 30 people served the first year, to 300 the next, to more than 40,000 people during the foun dation’s annual Christmas in the Park event at Fair Park. “S.M. has the strongest faith of any person I’ve ever met. When I panic if we are slow on donations, he says, “God will prevail,” and he does,” Allie Beth said. “What is so nice is you can truly see where the money is going.”TheAllmans’ involvement ex tends beyond the holidays. Pierce has served on the S.M. Wright Founda tion board for years, and Wright re cently honored them while reopen ing the foundation’s newly renovated South Dallas Community Clothing and Resource Center. The center, lo cated in a house next to his church, provides free clothing, small appli ances, hygiene products, and other essentials.TheAllmans bought and refur bished the house and supplied it with donations from their agents. The pastor presented the All mans with a hand-blown glass heartshaped Legacy Award, inscribed, “For your longtime faithfulness to God in providing support to the less fortunate families in South Dallas.”

I relish in how easy it is to remember the directions to D Magazine’s office: left on Walnut Hill Lane, right on the tollway, and go straight until you see the tall office building with a big, red “D” on it.

You can adjust the sweetness Moon Milk adds in quarters. For me, the sweet spot is three quarters, but friends who don’t like sweet coffee usually go for a quarter or find yourself in line and unsure what to try, I suggest my go-to order: a three-quarters Wintermoon.

The journey to winning the BMW Dallas Marathon Festival in 2015 began with a fa ther’sDr.example.LoganSherman remembers his father running the Dallas Marathon and then finding a similar passion in middle school. The sports chiropractor has since devel oped a training regimen that has allowed him to win three half-marathons in addition to that 2015 race. “It’s a transformative experience,” Sher man said. “The one thing that I believe puts the Dallas Marathon ahead of other races is that we aim to create a 100% satisfaction of our guest experience. We want everyone to walk away talking about how much fun they had during our race.” Before the fun comes hard work. “When I was training for a marathon, I would carry a base of 100 plus miles per week,” Sherman said. He recommends beginning training for a half-marathon 14 weeks prior and a full mara thon 16 weeks prior. With each grueling week, it is necessary to keep the body healthy. He’s a fan of using foam rollers, a perfor mance and recovery deep tissue massaging tool, before and after running. He also advocates strength training to avoid injuries. “As a sports chiropractor, I find that most of my clients who come in for an injury are not performing strength exercises outside of running,” he said. “When I was training, I would carve out three to five days for lifting weights. I credit strength training to my rela tively healthy career.”

You should be very comfortable in the early stages of the race and your pace should be al most conversational.”

2. Start slow and build while allowing for recovery phases. My rule was to build mileage over the course of 2-3 weeks and take a recovery week. During that recovery week I would run approximately 75% of my average mileage.

While physical training is key to recording a good time, mentally preparing for a 26.6-milelong course is just as important. “The training in and of itself helps people mentally prepare for it,” Sherman said. “The excitement of the race day and the spectators cheering you on in the middle of the course re ally takes your mind off of what you might be going through at the moment.” Sherman still thinks back on a pro-tip he received when he first started. “My favorite piece of advice that I was giv en prior to my first marathon, the 2009 Dallas Marathon, was from the ‘96 Dallas Marathon champion, Dr. William Moore,” Sherman said. “He told me through an email the night before the race, ‘patience, patience, patience.’

As summer winds down and autumn’s busy schedules loom, gathering with friends always takes on greater urgency for me in August. Since we spend most of the summer in the mountains where the first signs of fall can be felt in mid-August, planning our get-togethers usual ly means dining al fres co on the front veranda or in the shade provided by nearby trees so we can enjoy cool breezes and beautiful sunsets. I love gatherings that feel relaxed and fun for guests but are easy for me — especially in the summer, so one of my go-to dining solutions is a charcuterie board. Charcuterie boards come in all shapes and sizes. Last summer, when many of us were maintaining 6 feet of distance, I created indi vidual charcuterie boards for each guest. They were such a success that I occasionally still use thisAapproach.setofsix oval wood boards intended to hold small, individual cast iron skillets were the perfect mini charcuterie boards. I turned them upside down and used the smooth surface of each board. On the other hand, a large char cuterie board always garners ooh’s and ah’s from my guests, whether served as a starter for a meal or as the meal itself. Recently, I created a charcuterie board on a grand scale while filming a pilot for a new na tional television cooking show. The board was 24 by 16 inches and was filled with assorted hard and soft cheese wedges, slices of Genoa salami and Soppressata arranged in overlapping pat terns, and paper-thin slices of Prosciutto di Par ma, which I draped loosely for an artistic effect. Assorted Greek olives, clusters of red grapes, a small ramekin of sweet cornichon pickles, a small bowl of Dijon mustard for the meats and another of fig spread for the cheeses, thin slic es of Cosmic Crisp apples that wound through the board without turning brown, and a selec tion of crackers and sliced baguette created an abundant, irresistible display big with wow fac tor. I designed this board as a starter for a crowd, but it could have served as a complete meal for a smaller group. For everyday entertaining, I suggest a sim ple charcuterie board with no more than three or four cheese wedges, assorted crackers or thin slices of artisan bread arranged in an overlapping pattern, clusters of dates, grapes, nuts, prosciutto or another favorite charcuterie meat, small bowls of condiments, and a selection of olives. Arrange the board an hour before guests arrive, cover it with plastic wrap, and set it aside to allow the cheese to soften without drying out.

English style has been making a come back lately. I think it’s because English furniture is a little bit simpler than French or Italian-style furniture, so it mixes well with a modern home. If you’re drawn to English style but are worried that incorpo rating it will date your interior design, you’ll be glad to know that an English-inspired home can still look very current.  In this article, I’ll give an overview of the key characteristics of English style and how I’ve successfully used English furniture and accessories in my projects. Traditional English homes, whether cot tages or manors, tend to be comfortable, warm, and inviting. The flooring is usually wood with rugs, especially oriental or si sal rugs. The window treatments could be drapes, curtains, or shades, but never blinds. Even a relatively modern or transitional English-style home should be layered with antiques or traditional art to give a sense of history. That said, most designers are not using as many antiques as we did 10 or 20 years ago. Nowadays, I use English an tiques as more of an accent, scattering them throughout the home. One way to help an English-inspired room feel more current is to choose contem porary colors and simple draperies. For ex ample, in one project with English antiques, I used an aqua paint color to make the room feelEnglishfresh. furniture is usually made with very dark wood, such as mahogany, and has less carving than French or Italian pieces. Another interesting thing to know is that the English liked as many reflective surfaces in their homes as possible to brighten things up. As a result, they used shiny finishes on both their wood furniture and their hard ware, with the hardware often finished in shiny brass. As far as accessories go, the English liked to use chinoiserie. Other accessories com monly seen in the traditional English home include needlepoint pillows, antique clocks, and oil paintings of family portraits, dogs, or Evenhorses.if some today consider full-blown English interiors outdated, I still love to work with English furnishings and antiques. Bal ancing them with a modern or contemporary interior is a fun and rewarding challenge.

Why Interior Designers Are Embracing English Style With Modern Design CHAMBERSMARGARET

VOCABULARY Chinoiserie, a French word for “Chineseesque,” refers to European decorative art inspired by objects and stories brought back from the Middle East and Asia. It was most popular during the 1600s and 1700s. Although chinoiserie sounds like it should be primarily based on Chinese design, the style also owes its look to Indian, Persian, Korean, and Japanese art. | August 2022 37


CLOCKWISE: Aqua paint helps this English antique-filled dining room seem light and airy instead of dark and dated. Traditional paintings featuring dogs and horses, especially in hunting scenes, are classic English style. English antiques are often made of dark woods with shiny finishes, like these in a University Park home. (PHOTOS: MICHAEL HUNTER. DESIGNS: MARGARET CHAMBERS)
