and Sally and Andy’s big night at Celebrando Austin! It is

always fun to hear your news. Please don’t be shy and send in

your pictures and stories. Maybe your child had a big game or

As we celebrate that special mom in our life this month, let’s

remember to give those moms of babies a little “me time”.

Watching the little ones while mom goes to the store, gets a

project done or takes a nap would make a very thoughtful gift.

She may also like a visit from The Maids or a special piece of

jewelry from WhiteFire. That’s my little guy pictured here. He

loves picking wildflowers out for me (which I cherish more than a

dozen roses).

Deer Feeding

Ordinance

Monthly meetings held the 2nd Thursday from 9:30-10:30am.

Resident business owners are invited to attend monthly networking

meetings. It is a wonderful opportunity to share

information on your business and stay connected. Our group is

focused on referrals. Email teresa.rose@n2pub.com to RSVP.

The City of Austin adopted an ordinance on February 23, 2009

prohibiting intentional feeding of deer. The ordinance amends

the City Code to add Chapter 10-8 which:

Monthly emails are sent out to the community, please email

teresa.rose@n2pub.com to join the list! Emails also allow

immediate communication in the case of emergency, missing

pets, etc. so please send us your email today.

Note: This list is NOT shared.

• Prohibits intentional feeding of or making food available to

deer within City limits

• Creates a Class C Misdemeanor for violations

• Establishes a fine not less than $75 or more than $125

Why is feeding the deer harmful

IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER

Congratulations

to all our

Cat Mountain

Graduates!

• Feeding congregates deer into unnaturally high densities

• Congregating deer increase birth rates resulting in higher

populations

• It causes over-browsing of local vegetation and ornamental

plants

• Increases deer-vehicle collisions

• Lowers the instinctive fear deer have toward humans and

domestic animals

• Increases negative deer/human and deer/pet confrontations

HOW TO REPORT A VIOLATION

The Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department’s

Rodent and Vector Program is responsible for administering

and enforcing the ordinance. To report a deer feeding

complaint, call the Program’s Deer Feeding Ordinance information/message

line at (512) 972-5692 or e-mail

ECHU.service@ci.austin.tx.us. You may also file a written

complaint with the City’s Municipal Court.

Let’s work together to share this information with your neighbors.

They may not be aware of this ordinance or that supplemental

feeding harms deer.

• Don’t feed or make food available to deer

• Educate yourself about the negative impacts of supplemental

feeding

• Deer will not starve if supplemental food is withdrawn or

unavailable

• Communicate to your neighbors that feeding deer is illegal

and could cause harm

• Landscape your yard with plants that deer do not prefer to eat

Andie Allen

Wife, mother, grandmother, professional interior

designer and docent at the Austin Museum of Art.

PLAN AHEAD and prune during the coldest months of

November through January when the trees are dormant and the

carrier beetles are hibernating. The hot summer months are also

safe, but the oaks may develop unwanted sucker growth during

the growth season.

Since pruning trees is a major investment (frequently $1,000+)

and needs to be done only every five years, residents should plan

ahead and develop an arbor plan with a certified arborist.

Sally and Andy Gillam of Mountain Villa Dr. enjoyed a wonderful

evening of diversity at the 2011 Celebrando Austin. The

Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce held their

“Celebrando Austin was amazing!” gushed Sally. “ There were so

many state and local dignitaries present. It was a great opportunity

to celebrate business growth in the community that impacts

our Cat Mountain neighborhood as well as our great city of

Austin!”

As many of you know, the AMOA has

two locations, downtown at 823 Congress

and the lovely villa on the banks of Lake

Austin, Laguna Gloria.

Within a few months after moving to

Austin I was inspired to join the docent

team at the downtown location.

My love of art, previous experience as a teacher and current

career in interior design all blend to make the docent experience

a perfect fit for me. I have been a volunteer for the AMOA for

eleven years now. I lead tours for visitors of all ages as well as

groups from area schools and colleges.

The museum provides excellent training for its docents, often

with the artist or curator, for each of the four different exhibits

each year. Besides the on the job training, there is much

research and study to do to be ready to lead the many tours

assigned for each exhibition.

Another program that the AMOA provides, in which I participate,

is the Seeing Special Things program. Here the art program

is taken directly to selected (special) low income schools

in the Austin area. Those participating in this additional docent

program are assigned a specific classroom. Four times per year,

we meet with the class involved for a “pre-visit”.

Next, a school bus trip, funded by the AMOA’s education fund,

brings the classes to the museum for an actual tour. The tour

is followed by an art activity related to the exhibit, something

to take home and share with their family. The home project is

designed to encourage the entire family to come downtown for

a museum visit.

I find it so rewarding to be able to bring these kids to the

museum, many of whom have never been on Congress St. to see

the capitol, much less an art museum. To paraphrase one of the

docents who so aptly expressed the experience for these children:

They walk in the door for the first time with trepidation,

and after the third tour they end up “owning the place”. The

fourth and final pre-visit and tour are at the villa and grounds

at Laguna Gloria. At Laguna, we lead them through this wonderful

example of art, architecture and Texas history. Special,

indeed!

My part time job at AMOA is strictly voluntary, but it is a “job”

for which I receive more than I give. If any of you art lovers out

there want to participate, call the AMOA and join us!

precious pets

Cat Mountain

Kids

Thanks to Judy Harrison for letting us know about her very unique “pet!”

Hello neighbors! I want to tell you about

our backyard friend, a mother Screech

Owl. Our owl nest box has an infrared

camera in it so we have had a ball watching

her daily activities and keeping an

eye on her eggs when she leaves the nest.

Owls cannot see in the infrared range

so the mother owl doesn’t know we are

watching her!

The mother owl found our nest box the

last week of February. She laid her first

egg on March 10th, the second on March

12th, the third came on March 14th

and the last one on March 16th. Our

research says the mother owl will lay eggs

every other day. It takes 26 days to hatch

the eggs so they should hatch April 5.

(Update: The eggs hatched on schedule

and there are now four baby owls!) After

the eggs hatch, it takes 31 days before

the baby owls are able to leave the nest.

The mother owl will push her babies

out of the nest at that time, even though

they have not learned to fly. It is a very

dangerous time for them as they try to

survive the fall and avoid being eaten by

prey. The owls are prey to Blue Jays, larger

owls, crows, snakes, and raccoons. The

baby owls can climb back up the tree but

it takes several days before they can fly.

The Screech Owl on average weighs 7.3

oz and is 9.2” long with a 22”wingspan.

The male is smaller on average: 7.0 oz

weight, 8.2” length, 21” wingspan. The

male is supposed to feed the female when

her young hatch and grow. They mate

for life and come back to the same nest

each year (hopefully). The owls like to

eat earthworms, scorpions, small snakes,

snails, spiders and centipedes. They also

eat flying insects, mice, deer mice, chipmunks,

squirrels and moles.

I have enjoyed working with Jane

Tillman, Urban Landscape Gardener for

the Audubon Society, on my Backyard

Wildlife Habitat. If you have questions

for Jane, she can be reached at

FOR YOUR PAST, YOUR PRESENT, YOUR FUTURE

Is Alimony Dead in Texas

If not, what do I have to do to get it or avoid paying it

SURPRISE HER THIS ANNIVERSARY

Give Her Exactly What She Wants

A common myth exists that alimony doesn’t exist in Texas.

Urban legend or fact Neither.

First, alimony is the nomenclature of the Internal Revenue Service

for post-divorce payments between former-spouses which

meet specific requirements in order to be deductible from the

income of the paying spouse and includable from the income of

the receiving spouse.

Everyone – even Texans -- have the ability to agree that a

spouse will pay alimony. This is referred to as “contractual alimony.”

Additionally, beginning in 1997, the Texas Legislature

introduced court-ordered alimony which is known as “spousal

maintenance.” Texas courts have been ordering support

between spouses ever since. Just to be clear -- by confirming

that we have court-ordered alimony in Texas, by no means do

I intend to imply that it’s common. However, with the right

facts, some level of support is available. 1

Q: How long can alimony be paid

A: Contractual alimony must terminate upon the death of the

receiving party. Parties can choose to terminate it by other triggering

events (like remarriage) but they are not required to do

so. Spousal maintenance cannot be ordered for a period over

thirty-six months from the date of divorce unless the spousal

maintenance is based on the spouse’s or child’s disability.

CHASE Bank Building, 7600 Burnet Road, Suite 520 • www.WhiteFireJewelry.com

Q: What happens to the obligation if the paying spouse dies

A: Parties can agree that contractual alimony does not terminate

on the death of the paying spouse and becomes an obligation

of his or her estate. Spousal maintenance must terminate

upon the death of either spouse, on remarriage, or upon a finding

of cohabitation. 1

Q: Is there a dollar limit on the amount of support paid

A: Where the payment is agreed, the amount is virtually limitless.

To the contrary, spousal maintenance cannot exceed 20%

of the paying spouse’s gross income or $2,500 per month –

whichever is less.

Submit your family law questions to teresa.rose@n2pub.com for

potential publication.

1

Tex. Fam. Code §8.056 establishes the requirements for receiving spousal maintenance

based on being disabled or having a disabled child and being unable to work

, not having property for support, and being unable to meet one’s own reasonable

financial needs.

Parkside offers a casual venue on Sixth Street

with a bold take on New American Cuisine.

Shawn Cirkiel, one of Austin’s most recognized chefs, offers Parkside

diners a fresh culinary experience in lively downtown Austin.

Chef Cirkiel’s offerings include a sumptuous raw bar—which

often carries as many as 16 varieties of oysters. While the menu

changes seasonally—even daily–diners can enjoy both dramatic

dishes like juicy salmon crowned with almonds and pears or

comfort basics such as fried egg sandwiches. Innovative dishes

that exemplify his flair and innovative touch in the kitchen

include beet and peach tartar, crab fritters with ravigote and

Texas goat cheesecake with basil ice cream.

Bon Appetit magazine crowned Parkside one of the “Hot 10

New American Taverns” as a top destination for pub cuisine and

his towering hamburger was voted one of the best in Texas by

Texas Monthly (2009).

R&M Rustics produces finely handcrafted Adirondack patio and

garden furniture from Western Red Cedar. One of his love seat pieces

is displayed at the Clubhouse area by the swimming pool. Robert

Hill, the owner, told us about his business.

One of my favorite projects was producing 17 pieces for a San

Antonio HOA to surround their new pool. It was rewarding to

see that project come together and the positive response from

the neighborhood.

I started R&M Rustics following a teaching career that spanned

more than forty years. Most of those years were spent teaching

high school mathematics, from algebra I to advanced trig and

pre-calculus.

I decided to open a business involving my second love, woodworking.

For nearly all my adult life I have enjoyed using the

woodworking skills my father taught me as a young boy. During

the time I was teaching, woodworking was a great hobby

and diversion. Many people have enjoyed this hobby with me

through the gifts they have received and now display in their

homes.

Surprising as it may seem, I really enjoy working alone. At times

it gets a little hectic when I have a number of items to complete,

but that adds to the excitement I have when projects are

completed. I challenge myself to build the best possible piece

of furniture each time I produce one. I think that only when we

challenge ourselves do we produce the best possible product.

Seton Northwest

Hospital

Uses Internet to

Shorten ER Wait Times

A few clicks before heading to the hospital

will schedule your “place in line.”

Because patients with minor emergencies prefer the comforts of

home – sofa, TV, refrigerator – to the ER waiting room, Seton

Northwest Hospital is introducing SetonER.com, an online

registration and check-in system.

This Internet-based service allows patients with minor medical

conditions to arrive at the emergency department at a designated

time and be placed in an examination room within 15

minutes of arrival.

If the patient remains in the waiting room for more than 15

minutes past the designated time, the nominal fee for this service

will be refunded.

To receive the SetonER.com 15-minute guarantee, individuals

need to provide complete information during online registration

and arrive at the Seton Northwest emergency department

at the selected treatment time. InQuickER, the platform

behind SetonER.com, charges $4.99 for this pre-registration

and check-in service, separate from hospital and physician fees.

There may be times when the life-threatening or emergency

needs of other patients could delay low-acuity patients’ care, in

which case InQuickER will refund the $4.99 service fee.

For more information about Seton Northwest’s SetonER.com

online registration and check-in system, go to

www.seton.net/northwest.

Seton is a member of Ascension Health, the largest not-forprofit

health network in the nation.

“SetonER.com is designed for people with non-life threatening

medical conditions,” Scott Fuller, vice president and chief operating

officer of Seton Northwest Hospital, said.

Because emergency departments treat patients in order of severity,

a process called “triage,” patients with low-acuity conditions

sometimes wait for hours while higher-acuity patients receive

priority treatment. With SetonER.com, low-acuity patients can

do most of their waiting at home.
