Some Fine, Fine Voices
The Lab (Child & Family Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin) called to thank us for last week's plug and to add that they are still Accepting Applications. The program run by UT faculty and students in the university's child development program is well-known for its developmentally appropriate curriculum. The last few remaining slots will be filling fast. 471-3974.
Hump for the Arts

We Hear You Get Around
Assistance League of Austin has released its new 17-month 1998-99 Around Austin community events calendar. Local H-E-Bs and Randalls sell them at their customer service desks, and the Assistance League has them for sale at their thrift store on Burnet Road. They go for $7 and are cram-packed with event dates for all kinds of happenings all over town. We find it simply indispensable. 458-3716.
Too Soon to Boo?
Think it's too early to think about Halloween? Local retailers don't, and Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve is getting a jump on the horrid holiday, too. They seek actors, set designers, construction-types, lighting and FX wizzes, magicians and anybody who can "Boo" their way out of a bag to Volunteer for their annual Haunted Trails attraction. Meetings are each Wednesday at Wild Basin. email@example.com or 922-2180.

Keep an Eye Peel
Things will be Changing 'round these parts really soon. In the next few weeks, we'll be tweaking and improving our Benefits and Community Listings Calendar. Fret not, "Public Notice" will weather the changes well, trust us. Just keep an eye out for possible new deadlines and little pesky detail things like that, okay? 454-5766. (... not like we're really going to tell you anything if you call ...)
