Bank of America Plaza - Re-lighting Ceremony
Dallas-ites will be happy to know that the missing "Green Giant" will return to the iconic Dallas skyline soon. In fact, there will be a re-lighting event on Thursday, November 14 from 5:30 to 7:30pm where the new green lighting will be turned on.
As part of a $20 million dollar renovation, Bank of America Plaza is replacing the old argon lighting with LED lights. The 72-story skyscraper will again take its prominent place in the Dallas skyline between the Reunion Tower Ball and the new Omni Hotel. It remains to be seen if the building will change colors as do its companions to support the local sports teams and major events held at the Dallas Convention Center. I hope not. I like the familiar "green giant" just the right color.
Nothing says "welcome home" to a weary traveler like a light left on in the entrance. Haute Realty can help you find that home in Dallas.

Red Oak, Texas
The Parker Place is famous! Well, at least in Red Oak. They were featured in the Red Oak Now Magazine in 2012 because of their "haunted Halloween" decorations. This year, they are putting their talents to good use by helping local breast cancer warriors with the cost of medical bills. Come out for a good scare and a great cause THIS WEEKEND! 7:30-10:30pm Friday and Saturday. 105 Rockett Lane, Red Oak, TX.
Activities include country hayrides and the haunted graveyard adventure. And, of course, there is the "walk of fear" for those brave enough to approach the front door seeking candy! For the smaller guys there will be games and a bounce house in a well-lit area. On Halloween the early hayrides will be used to take trick-or-treaters through a local subdivision before resuming their frightful route.
All activities are FREE, with donations appreciated. Tickets to a Dallas Mavericks game (complete with parking pass) will be given to a very lucky guest. Raffle tickets are $5 each and may be purchased at the event all three nights. The winner will be drawn at 10:00pm on Halloween night. Other prizes will be drawn nightly.
Looking for a good scare off the beaten path? It's worth the 20 minute drive. Come see what all the ghouls are howling about.
Haute Realty is a proud sponsor of this event. Confirmed sponsors include The Greenery, Alex Rodriguez Construction, Ace Hardware, and other local businesses.

The Wright Amendment, signed into effect in 1979, will finally expire October 13, 2014. Trust me when I say that DFW International Airport, a joint venture between the cities of Dallas and Ft. Worth (and corporate headquarters of American Airlines), has enjoyed every advantage afforded by the artificially restricted competition imposed on the airlines who operate from Love Field in Dallas for the past 35 years.
It's about time. Gone will be the forced layovers in neighboring states. Dallas travelers will now be able to fly nonstop anywhere in the US. The additional delays caused by traveling to and from DFW; the long waits in security checkpoints; and the problematic parking issues will be replaced by the central location and ease-of-use of Love Field.
"Freedom of flight" will now be more than an exhibition featuring birds of prey during the State Fair. Dallas residents who have chosen the convenience of revitalized housing options in the city proper can now benefit from convenient business and personal travel from the heart of the city.

One of the reasons students excel in this school district is because of innovative offerings such as the Academic Enrichment Tool, used to match a student's passion and interest with the vast array of outlets that the Lovejoy ISD has to offer. It's a win-win match for the student, who now has a source of pride and achievement and for the School District, who helps develop the potential of future generations.
Speaking of excelling....the Volleyball team has its eye on the 3rd Straight State Championship. Tonight at 8:00pm they will face Paris in Round 1 of Regional Semi-Finals tonight at Texas A&M in Commerce. GO LADY LEOPARDS!!
