The Vicar of Victory

St. James Episcopal Church, 3701 E. MLK, marks a major turning point in its 55 years, as it celebrates becoming a self-supporting parish. This four-day jubilee includes: a parade at Hyde Park Baptist, Thu, Feb 6, 8pm; a dinner at the Shoreline Grill, Sat, Feb 8, 7pm; services at St. James, Sun, Feb 9, 8 & 10am; and culminating in the Vicar's Victory Party at the Victory Grill. Artists and writers (Marvin Kimbrough, Ana Sisnett, just to name a few...) from the community will contribute to the festivities. 926-6339.

Panza Power!

According to the Friends of Seaholm, those Quixotic crusaders whose windmills take the form of massive, poured-in-place, 95-foot-high concrete walls, the Austin City Council is calling for proposals for the cultural reuse of the retired municipal Seaholm Power Plant, 800 W. Cesar Chavez. The Friends know that the best way to make more friends and to spread their contagious enthusiasm for this monolith is to show the place off, so they invite you to a Seaholm Tour, Thu, Feb 13, 2:30pm. 442-5282.


Whenever we think of acorns we think of squirrels and whenever we think of squirrels we think of savings and whenever we think of savings we remember that we don't have any and whenever we remember that we get all anxious about the future and freak out because we'd really like to have enough dough squirreled away to buy the house of our dreams even in this crappy market and we'd even settle for something modest if we just knew where to start. So maybe we'll go to this First Time Home Buyer Seminar offered by ACORN Housing at Praise Tabernacle, 5800 MLK, Sat, Feb 8, noon, and just swallow our anxieties about nuts, squirrels, and the American Dream. Oh! And watch this space in the next few weeks because Acorn is hosting a Home Buying Fair, Sat, Feb 22, as well. 444-1207.

When Will It End?

It's just too painful to contemplate... but we must, for this grief cannot be borne solely by the victims and their families. Linda Marie Stone was shot and killed by her husband last November. Her memory will be honored Sat, Feb 8, 11am at the A.W.A.K.E. (Awareness that Women Are Killed Everyday) Walk, starting at the South Steps of the State Capitol. Center for Battered Women, Austin Police Department Victim Services, Austin Rape Crisis Center, and Travis County Sheriff's Department unite to honor those who have died at the cruel hand of family and relationship violence. 385-5181.

Clean Up Your Act

Meet on the corner of S. First & Gibson, Sat, Feb 8, 9:30am to lend your particular blend of elbow grease to the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association's Creek Cleanup. Bring a mug and enjoy free coffee (no disposable cups will be available...), and wear boots, long-sleeved shirts, work gloves and your environmental commitment on your sleeve. Work wraps up at 1pm; breakfast tacos will be served. 443-8141.


No, baby, you misunderstand... It's a walk-a-thon for the Comfort House, not a walk for your comfort. The Texwood Walk-a-Thon, Sat,
Feb 8, 10am-noon at the ACC Riverside Campus will raise funds to support Florence Ponziano and the Comfort House, a safe haven for children in need. So slap on some thick socks, broken-in sneaks, and hit the turf! 385-3323.
