Ben Sandifer Fights To Protect Dallas’ Nature So That You Don’t Have To

Robert Wilonsky has a great story in today's paper that you should take the time to read. It's about a private citizen named Ben Sandifer who is dealing with the city's shit -- literally. In this case, a city worker drove a massive excavator onto sensitive parkland so that he could take a dump. The excavator got stuck in the mud, and a front-end loader had to go in after it to pull it out. A whole bunch of Norbuck Park, off Buckner Boulevard, got torn up in the process. Sandifer saw it happen. He took video. He asked questions. If it weren't for him, people who use the park would have wondered why it had been torn up, and the crappy city worker would never have been held accountable. (A city official told Wilonsky Wednesday that he wasn't sure if the city employee would be punished, which is difficult to understand. Here's how it should be handled. Supervisor: "Did you drive your excavator into a park so that you could take a shit?" Worker: "Yes." Supervisor: "You're fired.") Anyway, that's all a preamble for what I really want to tell you. Hopefully you know about Big Spring and the effort to give it a historic designation. The Dallas City Council is scheduled to vote on the matter April 27.
