In this week’s podcast, Carol Toler and Ellen Raff explain why they’re hoping that rumors of Sprouts’s Town Center demise have been greatly exaggerated, but why conditions at neighboring Tom Thumbs may support evidence to the contrary. Plus, more on how the wet-dry election could change the Town Center landscape, and a new DART Station seeking riders.

Also, Ellen Raff tells us about a recent summit she attended on Dallas’ parks, and why she left encouraged about the future of our neighborhood parks and recreation centers.

In this week’s shameless neighborhood plugs: an LHHS Wranglers dinner and dance clinic for adults on Nov. 21 (send an email for details); a reminder to attend your neighborhood homeowners association meeting (Moss Farm Alliance’s meeting is tonight, if you’re Ellen Raff or one of her immediate neighbors); and the Lake Highlands podcast is on iTunes, so you can now subscribe to listen to us every week.
