Aquatic center

provides benefits

The Dallas Aquatic Center has been a lifeline for me.

I was ill last winter, and going swimming twice a week helped me build back my strength and health. Swimming is one of the best exercises there is for low impact to the joints.

The aquatic center was one of the reasons we chose to move to Dallas. I would be willing to pay 10 percent more for my annual membership -- this facility is so important for the health of our community.

Walmart changes

will be welcomed

I really think that it is a beautiful thing what the Dallas Walmart is doing with its store.

It's been a fun experience for me to see the changes they are making to the store's dynamic when I stopped in recently. Who would have thought? See, there's more than one way to skin a cat. This is much more cost efficient plus quiets the concerns of others in the Dallas area.

I have never been a huge fan of Walmart; I like Fred Meyer and still do. However, I look forward to this updated Walmart now and I am excited for the store and its new beginnings.
