My hat is off to Hugh Aynesworth, president of the Press Club of Dallas, Tony Pederson and the entire group of journalists, teachers and others who have donated untolled hours of strategic planning, hard work and precious time to bring the Press Club of Dallas back to a position of respect. I have followed the activities of PCD since joining a few years back and like everyone else, was horrified at the scandal of 2007. But that's over. Working for thousands and thousands of hours combined, so many have brought the Press Club of Dallas back on its feet, standing tall again.
Kudos to Gloria Campos and Cheryl Hall for taking on the chairmanship of the 2008 Katie Awards. Their personal message says it best. It's here, taken from PR Newswire.

Dallas Summer Musicals is offering discounts for "Ring of Fire- The Music of Johnny Cash" now playing at the Music Hall at Fair Park.
The parking is easy. Remember, you can enjoy dinner at the Crystal Terrace restaurant, located inside the Music Hall, before the show and reservations are suggested. There is also dining at the Old Mill Restaurant, just a block away, inside Fair Park.
In many ways Johnny Cash wrote and sang about the lives we all lead, regardless of where we lead them. If, watching RING OF FIRE, you feel yourself being drawn back to your roots, it isn't accidental -- even if you've forgotten what those roots are. From the heart of the songs of Johnny Cash comes a unique musical show about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, home and family. RING OF FIRE features 38 of the music legend’s songs such as “Country Boy,” “A Thing Called Love,” “Five Feet High and Rising,” “Daddy Sang Bass,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “I’ve Been Everywhere,” “The Man in Black,” and his final hit, “Hurt.” By the end of the show you will feel that you have spent the evening in the presence of an extraordinary and real man.
