"...Though launching the Austin edition was considered a necessary response to the Latino population, especially the growing number of immigrants, Greater Austin's estimated 300,000 Latinos is small when compared to Houston's 1½ million. Houston is among the top 10 Latino markets in the nation and one of the markets in which the Meximerica Media-owned Rumbo newspapers will continue publishing, in addition to San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley..."
"... Who doesn't love to save the world by buying stuff? That's the idea behind the Sustainable Shopper's Ball on Saturday, March 25, 9:30am-3pm at the Toney Burger Center (3200 Jones Rd., next to the Sunset Valley Farmers Market). The event will include music, art, tasty organic treats, cloggers, a yurt, and opportunities to learn about gardening, green building, and rainwater harvesting..."
"...For example, companies can't use "calls to action" urging listeners to "come on down." But as stations have grown more aggressive in courting companies, they've stretched the boundaries. As a result, the noncommercials on KUT might feature a restaurant touting its hot menu items, and a local market will assure listeners that "wine is our thing" all within the FCC guidelines..."
"...The company had initially planned to lease the property from Stratus Properties but agreed instead to buy it for $21.25 million. Both parties say the price roughly $350,000 per acre is based on the fair market value in the area, reflecting high demand for a shrinking supply of available land..."
"...Brigid Shea of Liveable Cities presented the Court with the signatures of 15 area environmental organizations opposing the expansion. BFI Attorney Paul Gosselink said the expansion is necessary to "keep us from being forced out of business in this market." Daniel Mottola..."
"...The store expanded to add a tavern along the front and upstairs was a dance hall. The meat market was in a small building attached to the side of the main building where the pool table is now..."
"...The scale sets a minimum rate that contractors bidding on AISD construction jobs must pay their workers. Unionized workers, like ironworkers and electricians, had hoped the district would adopt a wage scale that reflected market average benefits, which in their trades tend to be significantly higher than the $1.36..."
"...AC: The paper still seems integral to the community. It seems small town papers still are, and that sets you apart from the ubiquitous major-market papers..."
"...have taken action to manage the development of big box retail," the report states. The authors also "strongly recommend" that Austin "develop long-term strategies to strengthen and enhance our local retail market," including using incentives only to benefit employers that pay a living wage and exploring a "regional compact" to tamp down competition between city and suburbs for the sales-tax dollar...."
"...Instead of celebrating the five-year anniversary of the station, staffers are wondering if they'll still be around to see number six.Blood Doesn't Lead At a press conference or a street shoot, the News 8 reporter is easy to spot: He's the one with a camera on his shoulder. News 8 reporters usually operate as "one-man bands" shooting, reporting, and editing their own packages, a cost-saving technique primarily employed in small markets..."
"...However, that direct count doesn't work in brand-new developments, where he used averages such as 0.4 elementary-aged kids per new house. But when do you count a "house"? When the developer buys the land to build them, or when they're actually on the market?..."
"...Department of Education figures. The findings, which only became public when the American Federation of Teachers dug the data out of a voluminous annual report, raise problems for those who promise that charters publicly funded, privately run will harness the free market to improve education..."
"...6]. Just to clear things up regarding the Libertarian Party's position regarding television access, below is an excerpt from the Libertarian Party platform. "We would provide for free market ownership of airwave frequencies, deserving of full First Amendment protection..."

"...The Sustainable Food Center, which runs the Austin Farmers' Market every Saturday in Downtown's Republic Square, recently moved its offices to Sanchez Elementary at Waller and Spence streets in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood. The move enables SFC to teach Sanchez students the art of gardening and to provide cooking and nutritional education to the students' parents..."
"...One clarification is needed. Apple writes that Council Member Daryl Slusher compared locally based developers Endeavor "unfavorably to Stratus Properties and even Gary Bradley, both of whom, Slusher noted, had agreed to abide by SOS [Ordinance]." We agree with Slusher's critique of Endeavor, but the City Council permitted both Bradley and Stratus to exceed the on-site impervious cover limits of the SOS Ordinance on certain tracts while leaving less developable and marketable tracts at or under SOS impervious cover standards...."
"...Basically, the department overbudgeted this year for its housing programs, which it can do, because Austin is entitled to a certain level of federal funding regardless of local conditions. The slowdown in the housing market meant, for example, fewer opportunities to spend money to assist first-time homebuyers..."
"...Grapevine Market (7938 Great Northern Blvd., 323-5900) cheesemonger/deli manager Ike Johnson recently notified me about a series of classes he's scheduled for Tuesday evenings this spring. Coming up on March 12 is Ike's Cheese Lectorate with five cheeses and three wines for $35 per person..."
"...Since most births are simple and low cost, [obstetrics] naturally represents a far higher share of a hospital's patient count than it does of its revenue." Though they don't have access to Seton's actual revenue figures, Consumers Union estimates that obstetric services represent only 8% of actual hospital revenues at Brackenridge. "Removing one OB unit in this region is unlikely to damage Seton's strong position in this market," the report states...."
"...The council got a brief reprieve from one sticky issue Thursday, as a vote was pulled from the agenda that would have decided the extent to which city-owned electric utility Austin Energy can lock up its books in preparation for a deregulated utility market. (The vote was postponed "indefinitely" to give AE and city staff time to answer council members' preliminary questions -- and to give Council Member Will Wynn time to recover from pneumonia -- but it could be back on the agenda as early as Feb..."
"...Garcia entered the job market in 1962 and once again encountered racial barriers while interviewing with major accounting firms. Finally, one firm explained that they would hire him if he would be willing to move to New York City..."
"...1 with money from the General Fund -- the first time Austin taxpayers' money has been put directly into housing support programs. Everything up until now has either been funded by the marketplace, by the occasional tax-free bond sale, by various flavors of federal grant funds (managed by the city's Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Office), or by tax credits and other incentives (such as those administered, to use the term advisedly, by TDHCA)...."
"...Best Buy, for instance, may have stocked a full line of Watermelon releases, but it was Celine Dion, not Webb Wilder, that had registers ringing. Add to this scenario the chains' realizations that they'd overbuilt, and so-called "mom 'n' pop" record stores buckling under the marketplace pressure of the larger chains, plus the 1997 bankruptcy of Alliance, one of the nation's biggest distributors, and indie labels had front-row seats to the music industry's largest retail crash in two decades..."
"...Protecting the food supply can be a daunting job, and one that gets harder as the Austin area grows, the quality of our food supply diminishes from less frequent federal and state inspections of the raw product, and restaurants proliferate. Next to Laredo, Austin is the fastest-growing market in the state, with an increase in food sales of 12.5% last year...."
"...According to Rubin, unreasonable expectations are what lead many practitioners to fret at the state of bluegrass in today's popular music market...."
"...15, without notice. Loyal employees that have been there for several years at below-market salaries are leaving by the day..."
"...Austin was a place they wanted to live (Byron had family already here), and they saw that the city lacked just the kind of company they wanted to start. Here was the market, with a niche they fit into like a hoofer's foot in taps...."
"...And for Mr. Walter Benson, the eightysomething Marlboro Man whose family bought the Phillips Building that housed Pro-Jex "around the time I was born," who has finally seen a real estate market in Austin that will pay enough for him to sell the two-story brownstone, there is a whole lot being displaced besides Pro-Jex...."
"...But plutonium isn't chicken wings, and Bush's glad-handing of WCS could prove to be something of a Pandora's box. In November 1997, WCS sued a reluctant DOE in an attempt to force its way into the waste market, and struck gold when a U.S..."
"...Austin isn't exactly known for New Orleans-style Mardi Gras celebrations, but Central Market (4001 N. Lamar, 206-1000) is doing what it can to bring the flavor of Louisiana to Austin before "fat Tuesday." The store is stocked with fresh baked King Cakes, genuine Cafe du Monde coffee, beignet mix, and the Hurricane Cocktail mix from the legendary French Quarter watering hole, Pat O'Brien's..."
"...Listening in on this suburban anger with the skill of a market researcher is Todd Baxter, a 29-year-old attorney and aide to State Sen. Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio), the creator of the so-called water quality protection zones which have impeded the city from enforcing its environmental protection laws on developers...."
"...Wolfson Few things are certain about Austin's Music Class of '98, those local artists releasing albums this year on major labels or major indies, but one thing is abundantly clear: Enrollment is up. Although only a handful of this year's contingent have firm release dates for their forthcoming albums, it appears some 30 of Austin's favorite and best bands will try and sell their wares out on the open market..."
"...Sandwiches with such a name take me back to the Fellowship Hall of my childhood church, where youth meals often featured the dripping affairs made with a couple cans of generic brand chili, a spice envelope, and an additional helping of ground beef. But NeWorlDeli, a friendly little place inside the Hyde Park Market, has brought new meaning to the sloppy joe..."
"...For years, it was an actual hog farm, then became the Leander Rehabilitation Center, a sort of campground for patients of Texas MHMR facilities. Back in 1987, when the Legislature got serious about dumping underused state land on the market, it made an example of the mental-health agency (in MHMR's view) by taking the Leander site, along with the State School Annex on Bull Creek Road, away from MHMR..."
"...When things get too big or impersonal, it makes sense that people began to withdraw into smaller enclaves where their investment feels more tangible. The balkanization of underground music has certainly diluted its power as a market force, but it's also allowed the loyal opposition to catch its breath and continue the revolt on different fronts too numerous to mention...."
"...May you, the Chronicle, Andy Langer, and everyone else like you who are responsible for Austin's music scene always staying subservient to every other market in the country get rectal cancer and die!!!!..."

"..."Working with someone with diabetes over 50 who has a career, is college educated, and well-off, is different from caring for someone with diabetes forcibly retired after 50, who doesn't have marketable skills, and who has a hard time getting food on the table," explains HHS health authority Dr. Sanchez. In other words, social services that may not be so important at a private primary care outlet such as Austin Regional Clinic, are imperative at the Rosewood-Zaragosa public clinic...."
"...WATER was hatched in 1993, when Hill and Vaughan discovered that a house next to the foundation's headquarters was about to go on the market. "We had talked about the issue of women not being visible, of women being able to tell their own stories, of women overcoming societally induced technophobia," Hill says..."
"...They want to know where this has been all their lives. But Mexic-Arte Museum, which is centrally located and has space, doesn't treat music as a viable art form. There should be workshops and a concert series." Yet, while Sosin is critical of the lack of creative booking in clubs, she's amused by the potential in irregular venues, such as Central Market..."
"...For many people here in Austin, it doesn't. Rod Moag is one of those many. His two shows, the "Country, Swing, and Rockabilly Jamboree" and "Strictly Bluegrass" meet the needs of those who look to Bob Wills and Bill Monroe rather than Don Henley for two-stepping tunes. "The niche that's unfilled in the market is pre-1960, classic country, western swing, and the early rockabilly stuff," says Moag...."
"...out" much of the 11th and 12th street corridor east of I-35, and turn it into a commercial and business district. For the ARA, the council unanimously voted this spring to apply for a Housing and Urban Development loan, and spend $60,000 on a market study...."
"..."We're looking for those non-news viewers," Oliveira, with 18 years in the news business, says unapologetically. "And believe me, there's a huge market out there for people who don't want to watch the news..."
"...Terrified yet united in the face of what was increasingly looking to be the profile of a serial bomber, Austinites soldiered on, and more than 500 federal agents came into town to assist APD in its investigation. On Sunday, after a brief scare from a false bomb threat (made to Live Nation by an unrelated individual) canceled the Roots' South by Southwest show at Fair Market the night before, Manley gathered reporters for another press briefing, this time to announce an increased reward for information that could lead to the bomber's arrest...."

"...Moreover, AISD bonds will be some of the most appealing on the market. One of Chief Financial Officer Nicole Conley Johnson's biggest achievements has been to keep the district at an AA bond rating..."
"...Like De Mayo, Jack worries that the outcome will be to put "all the density in the urban-core neighborhoods," and avoid the hard political task of making outer neighborhoods share the burden. The process, he says, "doesn't have any empathy for the central city and homeowners, and threatens to turn over our planning efforts to the market." Does he think the process is salvageable? "It will take a lot of time, and political courage." [inset-2-right]..."
