SOUTH PARK STORY: No, it's not a musical. But Emergence: The South Park Story, 1940-1950 is a dramatic tale tracing the development of the South Park neighborhood from a simple collection of tent homes to an established community. And you can even come in costume, if you happen to have any 1940s-style clothing laying around. The the old neighborhood is brought to life with modeled recreations and oral histories in an exhibit opening with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, December 8, at the Arizona Historical Society, 949 E. Second St. The exhibit is the culmination of years of research by the African American History Project. Admission is free. Call 628-5774 for information.

Santa CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN: With only 18 days left to get his sleigh in gear, we think it's big of Santa to take time out of his busy pre-Christmas schedule to visit our humble desert town. And what better spot to whisper in the jolly old elf's ear than The Haunted Bookshop, 7211 N. Northern Ave., where you can bypass those impersonal lines at the mall by hanging out on the porch with a good book. Santa will pose for free photos--with children, they specify--from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, December 9. Cookies and milk not required. Call 297-4843 for information.
GOODWILL TOWARD MEN: It's just a phrase, PC watchdogs. We really propose something good for all: Tax-deductible Goodwill donations of clothing, household items and cars will be accepted daily during business hours at the following locations: 2907 N. First Ave.; 7044 E. Golf Links Road; 4995 E. Speedway; 4140 W. Ina Road; and 1770 S. Cherrybell Stravenue. There's something odd about giving to charity so you can add another line to your itemized deductions, but hey--that's just another one of those institutions that makes America a great place to pay taxes.
