There’s always something to occupy your time & your mind….

art2Don’t forget the Volunteer Fair tonight (May 4th) at the Visitors Center!  It runs from 4-6.  Even if you’re not ready to volunteer right now, this is good chance to check out the options for future reference.

The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing tonight regarding new sign regulations.  If you have opinions about signage, now is the time to weigh in.  After Planning Commission passes the new standards, they’ll go to City Council for a final vote.  Council generally accepts the recommendations of their advisory committees, so the best time to affect a decision is at the board level.  See the City’s agenda page for more information.

The Public Art Commission will hold the public hearing tomorrow morning regarding the art they’re thinking of eliminating:  the bears, the kids sledding, the deer, the rodeo kids, Eddie at Bat, and the Victorian Dress-Up girl in the Friendship Garden.  The meeting will be held in City Council chambers at 9AM.  If you can’t make it, and you want to express an opinion, send it to City staff member Aleah Menefee.  See the City’s agenda page for more information.

Reminder:  the Ladies Only Sample Tour is tomorrow night (Thursday May 5th).

There will be two good lectures tomorrow at the School of Mines.  At 4PM in Metals Hall, you can learn about the Geoscience of Star Trek (see a quick video explaining that).

From 7-9, Jim Davis will tell us about Uranium Fever.  This is part of the Friends of the CSM Geology Museum lecture series, and will be held at the Geology Museum.

Tomorrow at 5, at the History Museum, Robert McLaughlin will read from and sign copies of his new book, Magic Mountain.

I’ll provide more information about these 3 lectures tomorrow, but I wanted to get them on your radar.
