A row of Austin-esque Airstreams in the currently vacant Lake Highlands Town Center land along the creek — that’s what neighborhood resident Jana Boswell had in mind when she shared her idea at a Walnut Hill-Skillman spotlight, as neighborhood blogger Carol Toler found out when she spoke with Boswell to find out more. It would be a temporary excuse for neighbors to enjoy the newly constructed park.

Speaking of temporary, any chance that the adjective can apply to the budget cuts estimated for Richardson ISD? That’s the hope of Toler and neighborhood columnist Ellen Raff, who have looked over the community survey and aren’t willing to part with anything suggested for the anticipated $24 million to $37 million chopping block. If you feel as passionately as they sound during the podcast — even if you vehemently disagree — make sure your voice is heard via this survey by this Wednesday.
