Save that Lake!
THANK YOU FOR THE ATTENTION THE magazine gave White Rock Lake [“50 Reasons to Love (and Save) White Rock Lake,” March]. We live in Lake Park Estates and very much enjoy the beauty of the lake.
My son and I recently spent many hours exploring White Rock Lake. His Science Fair project was to determine it a simple homemade water filter system would clean water from the lake. The experiment was a success!

GLENNA WHITLEY’S ARTICLE ON WHITE Rock Lake was wonderful! 1 read it twice and picked up three more issues to give to friends. Not only is Ms. Whitley’s talent for telling a story enjoyable, but the photography should be award material.
Thank you for focusing on East Dallas and supporting an important cause. D Magazine is now a part of my home.

I RECENTLY READ YOUR ARTICLE ON WHITE Rock Lake and was wondering what could I do to help save one of Dallas’ most magnificent landmarks. I am a 17-year-old student at Lake Highlands High School who has learned about and enjoyed this beautiful landmark. I would hate to see all of its memories for people young and old vanish.
YOUR RESEARCH OF THE HISTORY, LEGends, and current problems at White Rock Lake was well written and informative.
It is now time for the citizens of Dallas to take action to save White Rock Lake. A vote of “yes” on the May 1995 bond election to dredge White Rock is the first step toward the lake’s salvation. Continued support from Dallas’ citizens will be needed after the bond election for the lake’s future health, preservation, and restoration.
Thank you, D Magazine, for your contribution to our most precious natural jewel, White Rock Lake.

The Mark of Marcus
THANK YOU FOR THE STORY ON STANLEY Marcus [“The Soul of Stanley Marcus,” April]. I’ve lived in Dallas for about seven years and never knew much about Mr. Stanley beyond the fact that bis name was on a great department store. This was a well-deserved tribute to a great citizen and a fascinating glimpse of a young city as it “grew up” in the 20th century. Thanks to Mr. Marcus for helping to “raise us right.”
Save that Lake!
