Advocate Back Talk has parade video, plus pep rally and football pics, from Woodrow Wilson High School’s homecoming week.
The popular White Rock-area road race, the DRC Half Marathon, happens Nov. 1. You can register to run or volunteer now. The festivities at last year’s race were overshadowed by a life-threatening car accident. One victim of that accident plans to return and run this year — her fan club will be manning the water station at mile 9.

Every Friday, Advocate Back Talk brings you “Restaurant Talk”. Check out a couple of our latest dishes here and here.
Know of a “best” in our neighborhood? We’re looking for spots in the area that offer unique perks — an extra nice public bathroom, for instance. When you need to see the dentist, get your oil changed, or wait to be seated at a restaurant — where is the best waiting spot? When you’re shopping, dining out or getting a haircut, where do you hear the best background music? Where are the best neighborhood places to take care of life’s little necessities such as airing up a tire, vacuuming your muddy floorboards, or buying last-minute goodies for your child’s school Halloween party? We are seeking out all the little niceties that make neighborhood spots special, so send your best-kept secret to — be sure to include your contact information, and if we use your tip in the magazine, we’ll send you an Advocate T-shirt.
