Those changes prompted a zoning pro cess “looking at how you incorporate mod erate changes to the zoning that soften the different development styles,” she said.

By Rachel Snyder

“It is historically a Black/African Amer ican neighborhood,” explained Andrea Gilles, assistant director of planning and urban design. “There are many sources that cite that this is also a freedman town area within the city.” Gilles said that the area, which was redlined in the 1930s through the 1960s, has seen changes in the last couple of decades.

But it does provide, Rieves said, “a nod of respect to the existing legacy residents who have called Elm Thicket home for half a century. Their new neighbor next door will loom over them with less disrespect andZachostility.”Thompson committed to maintain ing the West University Boulevard home where his late mother lived all her life. “We have a chance to maintain a history that is unique. This is one of the last communities in Dallas that is historically Black.” However, some stakeholders are unhap py, seeing the proposed changes as infring ing on their property rights.

Gilles added that the area is seeing significant property value increases and higher housing costs with more new con structions and teardowns.

Commission favors shorter homes, slightly less lot coverage

The proposals would also drop the max imum height of homes by about 5 feet and largely do away with flat roofs used in some new two-story homes.

The proposals would limit maximum lot coverage to 35% for multi-story homes and 40% for single-story homes instead of the 45% allowed in most of Dallas. Many of the original homes in the area are at most 30%.

Dallas City Plan Commissioners have sided with longtime Elm Thick et/Northpark residents seeking to preserve the history and character of the neighborhood.Thecommission recently voted unani mously to support a slight decrease in the lot coverage allowed for new homes there.

“There’s been a sharp decline in the Black and African American popula tion in this area, and a really significant increase in the Hispan ic, Latino, and Latinx populations, and the white populations,” she said.

“There’s no way the group that wants these changes could have gotten more than 50% of property owners to agree to all of this,” Allison Silveira said. “It is a fact that housing is one of the primary ways for wealth accumulation in this country. Are you really going to inhibit and deny that to neighbors in this area?”

The Dallas City Council, likely later this year, will have the final say on the contentious zon ing case, which has been in the works since itthecorrectzoning“The2016.proposeddoesnotthesinsofpast,nordoesbegintomake up for the sins of the past,” said Mark Rieves, a former plan commissioner and member of the Elm Thicket/Northpark steering committee.

The neighborhood, bordered by In wood, Lovers, Bluffview, Lemmon, and Mockingbird, is about 521 acres of primarily single-family homes with some duplexes on the edges. | September 2022 5 Price and availability subject to change.

Elizalde emphasized the idea of being proactive in creating safe spaces instead of waiting until it’s too late.

“For educators, for parents, this is really a difficult time,” she said. “Schools should be a place of joy. We should be talking about content, projects, and recess, but we also know the realities of today, and it re quires us to talk about drills and practices.”

School safety remains top of the list for Dallas ISD and, specifically, new Superin tendent Stephanie Elizalde. In preparation for the new school year, the district held a press conference in early August to describe plans to keep campuses safe with investments in school safety mea sures and professional development. Thanks to a $100 million bond approved by voters in 2020, the district has imple mented campus security cameras, keyless entries for facili ties, video door bells, construction and renovations that maintain se cure vestibules, and weapon pro tection systems. This bond also contributed to professional de velopment for faculty and staff to know how to handle campus threats. The district plans to make training a continuous effort and work with the police department to address the “complex prob lem.”“At the end of the day, we also know that people are our biggest assistants in en suring that we know of dangers that may be coming to our schools,” Elizalde said. Dallas ISD’s police department works with the Dallas Police Department to de termine protocols, decide who takes the lead in certain situations, and, most im portantly, communication, district Police Chief John Lawton said. The district held active shooter training in late July with the Dallas Police Depart ment and Dallas Fire Department.

Elizalde also said the district encourag es parents and families to report concerns they see or hear about. “This is going to require a multi-prong approach,” Elizalde said. “This is about lay ering our safety and our security protocols. It’s not going to be one thing.”

FAST FACT Since 2020, gun violence has been named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the number one hazard to teens and children in America.

Roster stability should enable Covenant to contend in a more challenging district with perennial power Dallas Christian, which drops to Division III after winning a Divi sion II title last year. “We’re going to continue to have high ex pectations,” Zinn said. “It’s a tough district, but if we control what we do, everything will fall into place.”

After enduring a bumpy ride with a young roster in 2021, Covenant hopes its path to success will be smoother during the upcoming football season. Despite the inexperience and a slow start, the Knights won five of their last seven games and returned to the TAPPS playoffs. So, the foundation is solid for a team that lost only two seniors to graduation and returns nine starters on both sides of scrimmage.“Wetook our lumps with those guys having to play such a significant role,” Cov enant head coach Jacob Zinn said. “We got a lot of experience that we wouldn’t have gotten any other way.” Mark Spangler became the starting quarterback last year almost by default, and he responded with almost 2,300 all-pur pose yards and 27 touchdowns — 16 rush ing and 11 passing. “He really grew during the season,” Zinn said. “We’re expecting him to pick up where he left off. Mark is a phenomenal athlete. If he plays more consistently, I think it’s going to be really hard for defenses. We’re going to be able to score a lot of points.” Now a senior, Spangler’s season will bring to a close a quarterback legacy at Covenant that included older brothers Jack and Ben. Many of the top players for Covenant will see action on both offense and defense.

Former ESD receiver adeptly balances college football with endorsements


“I’ve always been interested in the business side of things,” said Betts, whose parents are both at torneys. “I’ve viewed it as a con tinuous internship. I’m really get ting to understand the internals of what it’s like to run a startup.” Such arrangements are unusu al at schools like Amherst. The Massachusetts campus has about 2,000 students and competes at the NCAA Division III level. However, Betts has become a pioneer in the NIL space. He’s attended national conferences, been interviewed on podcasts and television shows, and become a resource for other student-athletes who aren’t sure how to get started. Betts didn’t play in 2019, and the Mammoths canceled their 2020 season due to the pandemic. The NIL guidelines took effect in July 2021, and six months lat er, Lifestyle Bands reached out to him.“Ifigured I might as well throw my hat in the ring,” said Betts, a junior English major. “Coming from the Division III level, I had very limited resources coming from my school. It’s been built from the ground out from my desk at home.”Inforging more than 30 partnerships during the span of a few months, Bet ts learned that you don’t need to play for Alabama or Ohio State to take advantage of the new NIL landscape.“Whywouldn’t I be the one who breaks down that barrier? Deals aren’t exclusive to Division I and Power Five [conference] guys,” he said. “We’re talented; we’re creative. I wanted to be the one to change the narrative and break down that wall.” During his free time, Betts became social media savvy and educated himself in brand-build ing and self-marketing. He launched a website. And he has more than doubled his following on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.

Jack Betts went to Amherst College looking to make his mark as a wide receiver, not an entrepreneur.Threeyears later, the former Episcopal School of Dallas student from the Park Cities has caught only one pass but has secured doz ens of endorsement deals enabled by the 2021 passage of Name, Im age, and Likeness (NIL) regula tions for NCAA athletes. While balancing the rigors of football and academics, Betts has become a social media ambassador for brands ranging from PSD Un derwear to Omaha Steaks — usu ally earning commissions or free products in exchange for pre-ar ranged viral shoutouts.

“Starting out, there was a lot of hesitancy from these brands. It’s all about sell ing yourself and presenting yourself as a thatlete.DivisiontheseofBettsprofessional,”said.“Mostthetime,Iambrands’firstIIIathIhavetoshowIdeservetobe in partnership with them.” Betts will need to focus more on football this fall. But his long-term goals include starting an academy to empower indig enous athletes looking to break into the NIL space since he has Cherokee heritage. “Down the line, the skills that I’m flexing here will be use ful in the business world,” Betts said. “As student-athletes, we’ve learned to balance all of the ob ligations we have going on in our lives. It’s another thing I’m going to have on my plate.” | September 2022 15 Together, we grew.Together, we grew.

Melissa and Russell Rie man started Renaissance Precast, a cast stone business, nearly 20 years ago. Russell died in March after five months in the hospital, but Melissa, a busy community vol unteer, is working to keep the business and his legacy going. “I think we’re just taking it day by day right now, trying to figure out what that grief looks like and how we can manage it,” Melissa said. “For me, I want to make sure I honor him and the work that he did and put into the business and keep it going strong.”Thecouple

“It started when I held a meeting for the International Attorneys in London,” Small said. “When I got the bill for it, I realized it was half my year’s travel expenses. Then, a friend of mine, who’s Dutch, said, ‘Why don’t we do this in Amster dam? It’s less than half the cost and everyone speaks English.’”

Lisa Coleman, Energy Transfer’s public relations and communications supervisor, also volunteers with the program. She said Energy Transfer is proud to support initia tives that benefit the community and help officers build relationships. “It’s very meaningful to hear the firsthand stories from these officers who witness the disparities that exist in our Dallas neigh borhoods and are inspired to make a differ ence,” Coleman said. “We are very grateful for the selfless and often dangerous work that our police officers do, and we’re proud to continue our relationship with the Dallas PoliceTheDepartment.”shoesleftover from the distribu tions will be saved by the police department to give to families in need they meet during patrols and calls.

CHECK IT OUT The ForgeryForger’sByClayG.Small$

From there, Small became fas cinated with the Netherlands. He explored Holland and Amster dam, and eventually became in troduced to 17th century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer. He quickly fell in love with the works of this Baroque Period painter and made it his mission to view each of his 34 existing works.

The Dallas Police Department and Energy Transfer joined forces for the sixth consecutive year to donate about $10,000 worth of shoes to more than 520 children across Dallas.

“It’s important because it bridges the gap that we have with the police department and our community,” Villanueva said. “One of the things we do in the NPO unit is we spend a lot of time with the community — coming together to work together to make a safer neighborhood for them.”

“I’ve seen all but three,” Small said. One day, Small was reading a Rotterdam newspaper and came across an ad for a gallery of Vermeer forgeries by Han van Meegeren.

From Forgery to Fiction: Clay Small Leans on a Full Life in Latest Novel

From the east side of Manhat tan to the art galleries of Amster dam, novelist Clay Small has had an incredible journey. This former soccer pro turned PepsiCo coun sel has cut a path through multiple continents, curating experiences that would eventually play out between the pages of two novels. Within his adventures, Dallas played an integral part. In 1972, Clay was drafted by the Dallas Tornado, a North American Soccer League stand out owned by the infamous Lamar Hunt. He came down from Wes leyan University, his alma mater in Ohio, to continue his soccer career in Dallas. However, he was quickly curtailed. “This is a really funny story,” Small said. “Lamar Hunt called me into his office one day and asked, ‘What do you want to do with your life?’ Which translated to, ‘I’m cutting you.’” Small explained to Hunt that he’d like to attend law school and become a lawyer. Within days, the business titan and Tornado owner had him enrolled at SMU Ded man School of Law. After graduating, Small eventually assumed a general counsel position at PepsiCo. There, he oversaw an array of divisions from Frito-Lay to Pizza Hut. It was through this work that he discovered a passion for travel and an appreciation of art.

“I became fascinated by the sto ry of a forgery by Van Meegeren which ended up in the hands of Re ichsmarschall Hermann Göring,” Small said. “And this set the back drop to my latest book.”

I thought, ‘Why would you have a forger’s showing?’ This is just too Clayweird.Small

Small’s latest title, The Forg er’s Forgery, explores the world of art forgery while pulling form his experiences as a husband, father, professor, executive, and world traveler. And with a life so rich in experiences, this is a read rooted in human engagement.

‘Share the Shoes’ Initiative Donates Footwear to 520 Children Around The City

Dallas Police Department and Energy Transfer worked together to distribute $10,000 worth


The initiative, known as “Share the Shoes,” was started by Officer Brian Nolff in 2017 after police on patrol consistently saw children out and about without proper foot wear. This sparked the idea for the partner ship with Energy Transfer. Now, the com pany hosts a donation drive each year for employees to collect shoes and then teams up with the police department to distribute them to children at schools and recreational centers across Dallas. Now that Nolff is retired, Officer Mike Villanueva and Senior Cpl. Jose Gamez lead the initiative. Villanueva said that members of the Neighborhood Police Officers unit who work with the program get to see the children grow up each year.

The shoes collected during the “Share the Shoes” donation drive were distributed to children in Dallas through summer camps and elementary schools.

“I thought, ‘Why would you have a forger’s showing?’” Small said. “This is just too weird.” The next day, Small was on a train to Rotterdam. Since then, he’s become fascinated with Van Meegeren and the lore that sur rounds his forgeries and following. Van Meegeren became the single richest artist of his time simply by forging paintings. In contrast, Ver meer died poor.

Institution earns rare national accreditation from the AAM

By William Taylor

AAM Accreditation Commis sion chair Evans Richardson called JDM an “exemplary institution.” | September 2022 33 Schools



JDM completed a rigorous self-assessment and review pro cess, earning the highest national recognition standard possible for a museum. It is the only accredit ed fine art museum in the country housed within a high school.

Works from celebrated painters, sculptors, and photographers blanket Jesuit’s 34-acre campus thanks to the school’s separately charted and governed fine art museum. (PHOTOS: JESUIT DALLAS)

The nonprofit JDM, incorpo rated in 1986 and governed by a charter and board of directors separate from the school, exists primarily to benefit Jesuit stu dents and the wider school com munity. Its world-class collection – more than 700 works span ning 2,000 years – is displayed in halls, classrooms, and courtyards throughout the 34-acre campus, introducing students to celebrat ed painters, sculptors, and pho tographers.“Timeand again, the site vis itors were struck by the depth of connection that the school, stu dents, faculty, administration, and board of trustees had with the collection and the educa tional philosophy of integration of content with curriculum,” the Accreditation Visiting Commit tee said in its final report. “The way the staff and board make the collection relevant and accessible should be a model for other insti tutions that exist in nontradition al art museum environments.”

he Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian Na tional Museum of Natural History, National Gallery of Art, and Jesuit Dallas Museum (JDM) – as The Muppets sing it on Sesa me Street, “One of these things is not like the others.” But don’t make the mistake of thinking, “one of these things just doesn’t belong.”

“Most impressive is the mu seum’s connection to the teach ing mission of the school and the passion of everyone involved,” Richardson said. “It would be very easy to try and place this museum into existing paradigms of what an art museum ‘should’ be. But what we found was a unique institution that reminds us to put the concept of connec tion between art and audience at the core of what we do.”


The museum at the Jesuit Col lege Preparatory School of Dal las has earned its place among the best museums in the nation, the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) announced in August.


“The unique partnership be tween the Jesuit Dallas Museum and the school is leading the coun try in best practices and reinforc ing the importance of an appreci ation of art in our young people,” said Fred Jackson, president of the JDM Board of Trustees. Only about 1,000 of the 34,000 museums in the United States achieve this accreditation. “Our accreditation signifies ex cellence, accountability, and high professional standards,” JDM di rector Elizabeth Hunt Blanc said.

Climate and ancient dinosaurs


No more starry nights? Imagine looking up at the night sky and not seeing real stars. SMU observational as trophysicist Krista Lynne Smith warns that could soon become a reality because of too many low-Earth orbit satellites.

“I think people use the terms ‘climate’ and/or ‘climate change’ often times not ful ly appreciating all of the parameters that de fine climate,” Fiorillo said. “One of the key parts of our study is that we were able to tease apart two critical parameters and show their relative role in shaping large-bodied herbi vore populations. This is important because these dinosaurs would be classified as key stone species; that is, they were critical to the health of the ecosystems in which they lived.”

According to a new study by SMU pa leontologist Anthony Fiorillo, precipitation and temperature were important to vertebrate herbivore dinosaur populations in Alaska. Fiorillo’s study is a great way to under stand the deep history of the ancient Arctic and the evidence of a flourishing high-lati tude terrestrial ecosystem. Fiorillo’s findings suggest that the mean annual precipitation played a more direct role in determining the distribution of herbivorous dinosaurs than the mean annual temperature.

Paper dinosaurs Though origami is traditionally used for teaching geometry or helping improve thinking skills, SMU paleontology student Travis Nolan uses it to envision complete structures of fossils he has excavated. The winner of the gold medal in the original design category of the 2021 Inter national Origami Internet Olympiad has combined his childhood fascination with di nosaurs with the Japanese paper folding art. “When I fold an origami version of the prehistoric animal I am excavating, it helps me know the animal really well,” Nolan said. “Some of the skills needed for reconstructing an extinct animal from its fossils can also be useful for designing that animal in origami.” Heard around the world After an explosion on the opposite side of the globe, the SMU geophysicist team re corded infrasound waves. The undersea Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano eruption on Jan. 15 in the South Pacific Ocean allowed infrasound waves to be recorded for the first time. “One of the most exciting things about this event is that we don’t understand how in frasound was detected everywhere on Earth,” SMU geophysicist Stephen Arrowsmith said, “because normally infrasound is very sensi tive to the direction of the wind. So normally, we hear infrasound in the direction the wind is blowing, and we don’t hear it where it’s not. But this event was heard everywhere. So, the infrasound was traveling slightly differently from what we’re used to.”

“Humanity’s view of the true night sky will be cut off,” Smith said. “No human born after this decade will be able to see it.” Smith wants more regulation. “Publicly holding SpaceX, Amazon, and other companies accountable for disregard ing the consequences is one important step,” Smith said. “The other is urging lawmakers at the state and federal levels to support pol icies recommended by astronomers, envi ronmental scientists, and industry groups.” – Compiled by Dillon Wyatt

Dallas Lutheran School’s new head of school looks forward to fostering a culture change on cam pus and rebuilding from the Octo ber 2019 Stephentornado.Eggold comes to DLS as its fifth head of school with more than 38 years of Lutheran school education experience and a reputation for promoting growth on “Icampuses.thinkany bold change or ini tiative focused on improving or enhancing the environment for students must come with a certain type of culture change,” Eggold said. “Certainly, here with the af termath of the 2019 tornado that significantly damaged our campus and the tremendous impact it has had on our student family commu nity, we are going to go through a culture change. However, that doesn’t mean we must sacrifice who we are as a school.” His first task is overseeing the Rise & Build capital campaign, which will replace the classrooms and administration space hit by the tornado. Students have been learning in portable classrooms since the Constructionstorm. will include exte rior-facing classrooms, entries and hallways, a visual arts building, art studios, computer and science labs, administrative offices, a library, a talent zone, and a study center.

During his most recent work as principal of Green Park Luther an School in Mehlville, Missouri, for eight years, enrollment grew by about 38%. The campus added a pre-K 3-and-4-year-old program, and a $250,000 capital campaign brought new teachers and staff, a balanced budget, enhanced tech nology, and improved academics.

Applying what he’s learned at his past schools, he expects the “Christ-centered educational ap proach will deliver well-rounded students and not only prepare them for college and their next steps, but it will place them at the center of the learning process to prepare them to be the best person they can be.”

The boys said they wanted to share their love of baseball and the life skills they have learned through playing, such as re silience and teamwork. In preparation for the camp, they raised $5,240.

Rishab Siddamshetty says the generosity he experienced after a tornado hit his home inspired him to want to help others.

After losing his house and other ne cessities during the tornado that tore through Preston Hollow neighborhoods in 2019, St. Mark’s School of Texas stu dent Rishab Siddamshetty decided to start

Rishab Siddamshetty runs website, podcast, blog to educate others

“I figured that if I wanted to make a difference, I should have multiple tools and multiple sources of content,” he said. “In the long run, I hope people will be able to manage their money, which in turn, will help our economy in any kind of way. So, by partnering with organizations and in terviewing people in the financial world, my main goal is for viewers to have a basic understanding of finance.”

“When the tornado in Dallas de stroyed my house, there was very little for me and my family to salvage,” Siddam shetty said. “In addition, we experienced financial hardship. We lost a lot of our be longings, but the surrounding communi ty and St. Mark’s families gave us shelter and provided us clothing. They did what ever they could to put a smile on our fac es, so when we recuperated, I realized that I should pay it back and help the people who helped me.” With 43% of the country being finan cially illiterate, Siddamshetty decided he could tackle that gap.

Siddamshetty aims to major in finance in college and hopes giving finance tips to people who don’t know much about finance will prove a big steppingstone for his fi nancial career. He also hopes to find a younger finance enthusiast at St. Mark’s with strong lead ership skills to continue the website after Siddamshetty graduates.

“In other countries, the financial litera cy rate is a lot higher,” Siddamshetty said.



“It’s my way of leaving a legacy and giving back to those who help me,” Sid damshetty said. “After receiving help from so many people, it feels really good to pay it forward and know that my work is mak ing a difference in the lives around me.”

The pan-fried Wagyu tacos are sublime - the filling is like meat butter - creamy, rich, and beefy. This is an updated version of El Fenix’s pan-fried taco. The naked chile relleno is baked and has a punchi er chile and tomato flavor than the fried version. The chips are sturdy, the sal sa is tomatoey and on the mild side, and the shrimp fajitas are filled with grilled, plump shrimp, seasoned perfectly. Casa Rosa is a reiteration of the leg endary Inwood Village spot now located in a former El Fenix location at Lemmon and Inwood. Far simpler in décor, rose pink and terracotta walls are illuminat ed by a beaming skylight and wall lan terns that glow a deep maize. A lush cen ter planter spilling with greenery and the uncluttered space remind me of a restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. What I love most about this menu, besides the most amazing taco meat, inshreddedflavorfulchickenenchiladas,and the best queso in town, is that you can choose your combinations.

Enfuego means “on fire,” slang for super popular TexMex Train: It’s not just about food. The Texas Mexican Railway Company was christened in June 1881 and was a subsidiary of the Kansas City Southern Railway, a significant rail operator at the time. Known as the Tex-Mex, the route connected Corpus Christi to Laredo. In 1883, Tex-Mex became the first Mexican-United State railway connection when a bridge was built over the Rio Grande River to connect Laredo and Nuevo Laredo.

Always reluctant to make a spe cial trip to the supermarket for a single ingredient, I looked around the pantry a few days ago and spied a couple of very ripe bananas.

Pool? Consider These 4 Design Tips

Heat Wave Have

It’s important to ask a pool design expert to do a site analysis based on your property. This can help prevent your project from running into snags later. Big leafy trees and pools are a ter rible combination: You’ll constantly be cleaning out leaves. Look for area pool companies that have been in the business for a mini mum of 15 to 20 years and have a good reputation.

·Choose:Option 1:

4. Add Outdoor Furniture Pool furniture needs to have colors that complement the home’s exterior and interior. When it comes to outdoor furniture, I almost always use all match ing sets, with the same metal finishes and fabric on the large cushions and umbrel la. I introduce variety with contrasting decorative pillows or accent tables (like faux bois accent tables or garden stools), but that’s about it. If adding a pool to your home is just one part of your home building or reno vation project, you can also bring in an interior designer for their input. An inte rior designer usually has a lot to say about pools. After all, they want to make sure that your pool not only looks beautiful but is the perfect match for your house. | September 2022 45

CHAMBERSMARGARET Are You Having Problems Standing Up From A Chair Or Feeling Dizzy, Achy, Or Unsteady Once You Stand Up? – Here’s A Few SIMPLE Tips From A Specialist Who Sees This Every Day!

Over the years, I’ve had the oppor tunity to watch pool trends come and go and help choose pool shapes, fin ishes, and pool furniture for my cli ents. Here are some things I’ve learned about pools during my ca reer as an interior designer.

3. Choose Your Pool Shape The shape of the pool should com plement the architecture of your house. For example, I would design a sleek and simple pool for a modern home. Cer tain pool shapes are out of fashion, es pecially kidney or lagoon-shaped pools. However, you should also be careful about “trendy” pool designs. A pool that is trendy now can date the house later.

2. Have A Healthcare Provider Check Your Blood Pressure Comparing Sitting & Standing. Abnormal changes in blood pressure can cause dizziness and increase fall risk. This is a simple and important test your healthcare provider can do.

2. Take a Look at Your Site

Healthy dogs between six months and 10 years old already visiting select VCA clinics or Banfield Hospitals are eligible. Participating Dallas clinics include the VCA Central Ex pressway Animal Hospital, just south of Forest Lane and east of U.S. 75. The study will begin recruiting cats later thisParticipatingyear. pet owners will receive a Whistle fitness tracker for dogs and a Wisdom Panel DNA test kit for cats to track pets’ daily behavior.

First, if you’re thinking of building a pool, you need to list the different ways you plan on enjoying it. For example, a lap pool needs to be rectangular and very long. If you primarily intend your pool as a party setting, consider: Will you want a fire pit or fireplace nearby? What about an outdoor kitchen, bar, or cabana? When it comes to water features, I love deck jets that arc and crisscross each other.

· Option 2:

Simple Tips…

1. Stand Up & Down From A Chair As Many Times As You Can In A Row EVERY DAY. This is where if you don’t use it you lose it. Even better, stand up fast and sit down slow. Standing up fast will add power into your legs. Sitting down slowly will help prevent you from just plopping into chairs and really improve leg strength.

1. Determine How You’ll Use Your Pool

The Mars Petcare Biobank, introduced in June to better understand health and promote individualized care, aims to include 10,000 dogs and 10,000 cats.

The VCA Veterinarian Team conducts a physical exam and collects samples from a cat to add to the biobank data.

Mars Petcare is working with nearby pro viders on a national healthcare initiative to dis cover and implement early detection technolo gy and preventative care for dogs and cats.

Dr. Philip Bergman, director of clinical studies for VCA, said the biobank will collect and analyze samples over 10 years and use the data to understand and spot early indicators of disease.“We will find new markers for early diag nosis for a lot of common diseases, and be cause of the widespread breadth of number of patients, we can also identify biomarkers for more niche types of diagnoses,” Bergman said. “Then, identifying those indicators will trans late into new diagnostic tests, new therapies or potentially new foods that we feed our pets.”

Equest offers physical and occupation al therapy, therapeutic riding, carriage driving, equine assisted learning, and equine facilitated counseling in the heart of the Trinity Forest. Building skills in therapeutic riding in creases confidence, social skills, trust, empa thy, and emotional regulation. Studies show that equine therapy helps with anger, anxiety, depression, PTS, and other emotional prob lems. Horses are also excellent for occupation al, speech, and physical therapy, helping riders improve flexibility, balance, muscle strength, circulation, and breathing. “My daughter feels so loved, safe, and special when she’s there,” said Julia, a client’s mother. “Her therapists provide opportuni ties that are fun, and she has no idea how hard she’s working.”

Bryan’s House

PLEASE DONATE Several participating nonprofits provided quick explanations on why donors should support them. Read excerpts here and find more North Texas Giving Day information at to donate. (COURTESY

The importance of Bryan’s House’s work – crisis intervention, case management, homeless prevention, onsite therapy, early childhood development, and family support – is seen daily in the clients we serve (Cli ent families typically earn just more than $24,000 annually). For example, Zabrina couldn’t move or walk independently at 2 years old and need ed help eating. Her family was told she would never walk. But after six months as a client, she was walking and feeding herself. Her mother said, “Knowing she was in good hands empowered me to work, return to school, and earn a livable wage to support our family.”

Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers visit the children and work closely with attorneys, judges, Child Protective Services, a child’s family, teachers, doctors, and therapists. They advocate for children to remain con nected to siblings, for their social, emotional, and educational needs, and for healing services.

Two minutes may not seem long, but it’s forever if you are a child suffering abuse or witnessing a violent crime. It’s enough time to be sold for sex or be assaulted by someone the child knows and trusts. It’s also enough time for healing to begin. In just two minutes, a DCAC Case co ordinator can engage law enforcement and CPS to help the investigative process begin. A DCAC Forensic Interviewer can build rapport so a child feels safe telling their story. Our team daily responds to 10 new chil dren who have made an outcry of abuse. We seek justice, and we restore hope, but we can’t do it alone. In just two minutes, you can posi tively impact a child’s life by donating.

Established in 1981, Ronald McDon ald House of Dallas (RMHD) has served as a home-away-from-home for more than 40,000 families of seriously ill chil dren who have traveled to Dallas seek ing medical treatment in area hospitals. Doing so keeps families intact, allowing them to establish regular routines during crisis and share with others in similar cir cumstances.Thehouse is as busy as ever, but the pandemic chased away nearly half of the volunteers, and utility costs have risen by 39%. In addition to donations, RMHD needs over 17,000 volunteers each year and at least 49 volunteers a day to support the house at full capacity, which increased by 30 rooms in early 2020.

Hillcrest has posted three consec utive winning seasons but hasn’t won a postseason game since 2006. So, while the progress is clear for the Panthers, so is the hunger for a squad that closed last season by win ning five of its last six regular-season games.“We’re looking to take that next step,” fifth-year head coach Jacob Ramon said. “We’ve lost some games because of our youth, and now that youth is more matured.”

By Todd Jorgenson People Newspapers

Returning to postseason play could be challenging as Hillcrest navigates a 10-team district that in cludes defending Class 5A Division II state champion South Oak Cliff. However, Ramon is optimistic the pieces are in place to make an other run despite the loss of starting quarterback and team leader Carter Sido to graduation.

Healthy Rangers Seeking Repeat in Expanded District

Jesuit won a district title despite losing 14 starters to injury at some point during last season. Even with significant graduation losses, better health should have the Rangers in the hunt for a repeat. After all, the new District 7-6A will feature Jesuit playing the same teams, with one notable exception — the addition of perennial Class 5A power and neighborhood rival Highland“FamiliarityPark. with the district is good,” Jesuit head coach Brandon Hickman said. “Adding Highland Park to the mix makes it more in triguing. That element adds a little fun.”Charlie Schmidt should take over as the starting quarterback for the prolific Jesuit offense after play ing a reserve role on last year’s 10-2 team that fell to Denton Guyer in the area round of the playoffs. He likely will split time early in the season with 6-foot-6 senior Will Greenwood.“Hegotinto some games last year and did a good job,” Hick man said of Schmidt, who’s also a lacrosse standout. “He has a very strong arm, but he’s more of a dual threat. That should open up our offense more.” Two-way star Robert Fitz gerald is gone to Northwestern University. However, Jake Mus so was among the team leaders in rushing and receiving last season. He’s back along with Cameron Martin, who missed the end of the 2021 campaign with a knee injury.On defense, tackle Jameson Kemp, linebacker Grant Peters, and safety Logan Thompson are key re turnees for a unit that posted three shutouts during a nine-game midseason winning streak.


“There’s an air of confidence that expe rienced quarterbacks have, and he has that,” Williams said. “He’s going to be a better thrower and make wiser decisions. His lead ership of the offense is going to grow expo nentially as the season goes along.”

“That experience goes a really long way,” McCray said. “If we get there this year, we will be ready to win it.”

ESD capped the season with a loss to Houston Kinkaid 42-17 in the conference ti tle game, giving an experienced roster plenty of motivation to go one step further this fall.

Teddy Sparrow provides a weapon as a tight end, while the offensive line again should be solid with the return of Andrew Chairuangdej, Jackson Bloomfield, and Will Searcy.

The ESD defense must replace a pair of linemen who signed with Division I col lege programs, including Chase Kennedy (Utah) and Jaden Robinson (New Mexi co State). That leaves strong tackler Justin McCray to anchor the line from his tackle spot alongside Hunt Sands. In addition to utilizing a handful of two-way players, Williams expects some younger players to play more prominent roles, such as running back Jackson Pen nington and speedster Jordan Hutchinson, who also plays basketball. Plus, the non-district schedule received an upgrade, with games against local ri val Trinity Christian, TAPPS powerhouse Grapevine Faith, and public-school foe Gladewater Sabine leading into the fourgame conference slate.

Several other playmakers also are back, including receiver Blair Brennan, who was Burke’s top target with 41 catches for 671 yards and eight touchdowns. Two-way standout Collin Nicholson accounted for more than 600 all-purpose yards and six offensive scores as a sophomore while also seeing significant action at linebacker.

“The bar has been raised now,” Williams said. “The focus is at that championship lev el. To do what we did last year is going to take more effort.”

“I’m so excited because they are tough teams,” Williams said. “We’ve got some tests before we head into conference. That’s what we want.”

The Eagles have earned three SPC crowns in their history, most recently in 2014, but never in the large-school classifi cation. Could this be the year that changes?

2021 RECORD: 10-1 NOTABLE: ESD’s loss to Houston Kinkaid in the SPC 4A title game came three weeks after the Eagles topped the Falcons 31-21 during the regular season.

Richard Williams can’t remember the last time he was part of a team that went through the regular season unde feated, as a coach or even a player. So, the Episcopal School of Dallas head coach was stunned when the Eagles were perfect against their SPC rivals last season — not because his team wasn’t capable, but since he knows the difficulty of such a feat.

Still, ESD looks equipped to make an other run behind a high-powered offense that returns 10 starters after averaging 41 points per game a year ago. Burke, who will begin his third season as the starter, passed for more than 2,000 yards with 30 touchdowns and just five intercep tions. He also led the Eagles in rushing with 708 yards and 10 scores, gaining more than seven yards per attempt.

“It was sad coming off a heartbreaking loss like that,” senior quarterback Patrick Burke said. “We want to get back there and win it this Repeatingtime.”that feat will be challenging, es pecially since the Eagles won’t be sneaking up on the rest of the SPC 4A division this time.

Last season, St. Mark’s secured its first winning season since 2017. And the Lions have had a full year to build a sol id foundation in head coach Harry Fla That leaves reason for optimism, even if upward mobility might seem difficult among the larger schools in the SPC, where St. Mark’s hasn’t won a crown

The Lions won all four non-confer ence games last season but stumbled to a 1-4 mark in divisional play when they al lowed more than 40 points per game. St. Mark’s must replace some play makers from last season’s roster. However, quarterback Asher Wilburn returns after taking most of the snaps last season. He’s one of three quarterbacks on the roster and the most likely starter. His top target could be Blake Malouf, who caught 34 passes for 550 yards and five scores a year ago. Sophomore running back Russell Higgins also will be a threat after seeing limited action in 2021 as a freshman.Thedefense has more experience, too, led by linebacker Keats Leffel, linemen Grant Warnecke and Henry Estes, and cornerback Hudson Bloom.

The graduation of quarterback Bennett Broaddus leaves the coach’s son to inherit the starting spot. An thony Banks is a 6-foot-4 sophomore with a strong arm and quick feet. “We’ve got to keep him upright and keep him healthy,” Tony Banks said. “He’s got to go through a learn ing process and a learning curve. He knows the playbook better than any one on the team. That allows us to fo cus on other areas.” Help should come from capa ble returnees at the skill positions in the pro-style offense, including Win ston Black, Aaron John son, Jaden Watt, and Zain Crumedy. Greenhill has more size and sea soning on the offensive line, which should help a rushing game that sput tered a year ago.
