Luminaries of all sorts

Tomorrow night’s Golden Beer Talk will feature former Golden mayor, Jacob Smith.  Jacob worked for Senator Bernie Sanders in Washington D.C., and will tell us about his experience in this talk, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”  This month’s beer comes from Golden City Brewery.  Beer Talks are held at Windy Saddle Cafe, 1110 Washington Avenue.  Dinner will be available starting at 6, and the talk begins at 6:30.

The annual Perseid meteor shower is happening this week, with the peak expected the nights of the 11th-14th.  This is expected to be an extra good year, because we’re in the dark phase of the moon.

There are a lot of people enjoying Clear Creek at this time of the year.  Check out Dave Powers’ photos from Sunday afternoon!

Just a reminder, if you want to run for City Council this fall, you must submit a petition to the City Clerk by August 24th.  These are the current candidates…there may be others that I haven’t yet learned about.  Mayor: Marjorie Sloan; District 1:  Saoirse Charis-Graves; District 2:  Casey Brown and Lauree Valverde.

Tonight’s GURA meeting has been cancelled.
