Austin's very own time machine (one direction: back), the Pioneer Farm stood on some shaky funding topsoil this year. With city budget proposals indicating a 50% cut, rumors of the Farm's demise cast a pall and sent the Friends of Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farm plowing into overdrive. The city reconsidered and delivered a more manageable cut. The future of Austin's outdoor museum of pioneer living is steady for this year, but continued public support is necessary for its survival.
