YMCA Has Designs on TLAC Site
Oh, so that's why the city wanted to close the Town Lake Animal Center
News Story  February 3, 2012, by Nick Barbaro
"...Animal advocates and parks advocates alike were in alarm mode early this week as news broke that the city is in negotiations with the YMCA to give land and funding for a new aquatics center near the Y's Town Lake branch – possibly impinging on the tract formerly occupied by the Town Lake Animal Center, and now being used as a temporary shelter by Austin Pets Alive!...."

From Southerners to Seventh Grade
Books Story  October 2, 1998
"...While Queer 13 celebrates a painful time in the lives of gay and lesbian teens to which all readers can easily relate, Take the Young Stranger by the Hand: Same-Sex Relations and the YMCA by John Donald Gustav-Wrathall provides the history of an institution which saw its pop apotheosis in a Village People song that extolled the joys of an experience common to a more limited sector of the population. The cover of this book shows a tableau circa 1940 in which men in various states of undress are enjoying the convivial atmosphere afforded by the dressing room at the local YMCA..."

Merriment & What-Not
Will Eeyore Be Banished From the Hundred Acre Wood?
News Story  April 11, 1997, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Since PARD, after all, owns the park, this would seem to be a simple task, but Eeyore's -- titularly sponsored by the University YMCA, with funds raised from concessions and merchandise (admission to the party itself is free) going to a herd of local charities and community groups -- has quite the large contingent of fans, and to date any attempts to dislocate the Silly Old Bears from the Hundred Acre Wood have blown up in their backers' faces. The last time the issue went before the City Council itself for an up-or-down vote, in 1984, Eeyore's won 7-0...."

'The Man From Orlando' team recalls the high stakes of making their lo-fi first feature
Screens Story  January 11, 2013, by Amy Gentry
"...While this zany cast of characters provides plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, the locations themselves function like quieter punchlines set in the background of each shot: the cheap motel, the YMCA, the bar where locals park themselves under the same neon beer signs night after night. Even the half-finished houses on newly developed plots suggest perpetually deferred hopes of upward mobility in a small town; one belongs to Orlando's brother Romeo (played by Chris Doubek), who dreams of being Priddy's mayor, but seems doomed to be forever mayor pro tem...."
