Chapel Crossing, the latest addition to the State Highway 114 Corridor, set to open this summer

Located at the southwest corner of White Chapel Boulevard and State Highway 114, Chapel Crossing will soon add to Southlake’s thriving health care industry, with construction scheduled to be complete in June and physician practices opening for business this fall.

The 48,600-square-foot, three-story Class-A medical office building will house a variety of medical occupants in the state-of-the-art facility.

JLL Healthcare Brokerage Lead Ryan H. Dale and Vice President Ruth Griggs are in the process of leasing space in the new medical office building and are looking forward to being a part of the Southlake community. “We’re excited about the upcoming grand opening of Chapel Crossing, which I believe responds to the need for more professional, Class-A multi-tenant medical office product in the growing Southlake community,” said Dale. “This immediate area is going to look completely different in a few short years. We’re approximately 45 percent leased with a strong tenant base committed prior to opening.”

The first practices expected to see patients at Chapel Crossing include: Irving Orthopedic & Sports Medicine, Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, Aesthetic Specialists, and ATI Physical Therapy.

The medical development is a joint venture between Grapevine-based 2GR Equity, a commercial real estate investment firm, Dallas-based developer Brown Company Partners, as well as other physician-tenant investors. Prospective physician tenants also have the opportunity to invest in the real estate development as well. “We have been working on this project for some time, it has come together extremely well and I know it will be a great asset to the City and the 114 corridor,” said David Karr, of Brown Company Partners.

Chapel Crossing will contribute to Southlake’s growing medical community. Already home to several large health care facilities, including Methodist Southlake Hospital, Texas Health Southlake, Cook Children’s Urgent Care and Pediatric Specialties, and Southlake Medical Office Building, Southlake continues to offer patients a healthy variety of medical offerings.

For more information about this property and leasing opportunities, please contact Ryan H. Dale.

Dragon Baseball Wins Third State Championship

The 2018 Dragon Baseball team has officially added their team to the Carroll history books joining the 1982 and the 2002 baseball state champion teams. The Dragons defeated the Rattlers from San Antonio Reagan on Saturday to clinch the school’s third state championship in baseball and it’s first in 16 years.

From the first at-bat on Saturday, it was obvious that the Dragons were here to finish the job that they fell just short of last season. An errant throw on a routine groundball pulled the Rattlers first baseman off the bag causing a hard collision with Dragon leadoff hitter Cade Bell. Later in the first, Will Quillen drove in two runs on a bases-clearing triple that started the offensive explosion. The Dragons went on to score five more runs through the first five innings.

Kyle Warden took the mound in the championship game after Nicco Cole threw a gem the night before to get the Dragons to the trophy match. Warden was spectacular throughout the entire game. He worked out of two potential jams in the middle of the game, and his only blemish came late in the game once the game was all but finished. Adam Stephenson came in to close the game out for the Dragons. His lone strikeout of the game clinched the game and the championship for the Dragons.

Kyle Warden was awarded the tournament’s Most Valuable Player Award. The one-two punch of Nicco Cole and Kyle Warden proved deadly all season long for Dragon opponents. The two combined for a 21-1 record overall and a spotless undefeated record in the playoffs.

Nicco Cole, Kyle Warden, Cade Bell, Jorge Figueroa, and Nik Millsap were all named to the All-Tournament team.

State updates fish consumption advisory for Lake Worth, portions of Trinity River

The Texas Department of State Health Services updated a fish consumption advisory for Lake Worth due to unsafe levels of pollutants, including dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in certain species of fish. The state is recommending people limit or avoid consumption of various species of fish.

Fish and shellfish can accumulate contaminants from the waters in which they live. The state monitors fish for the presence of environmental contaminants and alerts the public through bans and advisories when a threat to human health may occur from the consumption of contaminated fish.

Concentrations of the pollutants in blue catfish, common carp, flathead catfish, freshwater drum, smallmouth buffalo, striped bass and white bass exceed state health guidelines and pose a risk to people who consume them.

Specific recommendations include:

  • Don’t consume smallmouth buffalo from these waters.
  • For flathead catfish, adults are advised to limit consumption to one 8-ounce meal per month. Women of childbearing age and children under 12 should not consume flathead catfish.
  • For blue catfish, striped bass, white bass and common carp, adults should limit consumption to two 8-ounce meals per month. Women of childbearing age and children under 12 should limit consumption to one 4-ounce meal per month.
  • For freshwater drum, adults are advised to limit consumption to three 8-ounce meals per month. Children and women of childbearing age should not eat more than one 4-ounce meal per month.

This is an update to the 2010 advisory. Elevated levels of dioxins and PCBs in fish do not pose a health risk for people participating in recreational activities such as swimming or boating.

Carroll ISD Assistant Superintendent Receives Honor at State Convention

The annual Texas School Public Relations Association (TSPRA) conference was held in Frisco this week. Districts from across the state come together for professional development, networking, and a recognition banquet. During the conference, professional awards are given to deserving TSPRA members ranging from Rookie of the Year to Most Valuable Member.

The 2018 recipient of the TSPRA Most Valuable Member was Carroll ISD Assistant Superintendent for Board and Community Relations, Julie Thannum. Thannum was recognized for her service to not only TSPRA and educators around the state, but also for her service at the national level as President of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA).

Her colleagues around the country took this opportunity to recognize Thannum’s dedication to the success of public education and public education communication personnel that she has displayed and still displays in her everyday career.

“Julie is a strong, sturdy and consistent voice that represents all members of TSPRA, NSPRA, and PR professional. She has been a sounding board for myself and many others,” says Dane Dellebach, Project Manager from Blackboard, a company that works with educational systems across the country. “She is trusted to see all angles of a situation, with her only agenda being the success of students and the right decision being made. She sees the big picture and strategy, but she always has time for the individual. It is for this reason alone that she has become a mentor for so many.”

Kristin Magette, Director of Communications for Eudora Public Schools in Kansas, believes that Thannum is a shining example of what a servant leader looks like.

“Julie is a true servant leader. She is all at once – confident yet approachable, principled and open-minded. She is a ‘go-to’ resource for truly great advice, but at the same time, I have seen her adapt and listen to varied perspectives.” said Magette. “It’s clear in all she says and does that she cares deeply about this profession – but more than anything she cares deeply about the people in her work and in her life.”

Carroll ISD Superintendent Dr. David Faltys was in attendance for the award presentation and stated, “In our community, superintendents come and go – but there is only one Julie Thannum.” Thannum has worked alongside Dr. Faltys since he joined the district over 12 years ago.

Thannum was presented with the award during the TSPRA General Meeting Luncheon at the State Conference on Wednesday, February 21.
