Now Playing: Horton Hears a Who! (showtimes)

Want to feel better? Unstress a little? Get silly? Dr. Seuss works way better than Dr. Phil. Horton Hears a Who! is a hoot and fun for kids and adults alike. Every kid in America (and his or her responsible parent) will see this one. Read more...

sidewalk garden spring cleanup

In concert with the city's Spring Clean campaign which begins Sat. April 5 and goes through Sat May 31 (Saturdays only), I'm planning our first garden cleanup at the St. Edmunds St. parking strip flower garden next to the Farmers' Market site. Please bring tools, hand pruners, loppers, shovels, weeders, gloves, etc. and join me on Sat. April 5 at 9 am or whenever you can get there. If you don't want to wait until then and want to begin some trash pickup, go for it. I'll have some extra tools folks can borrow, maybe the city will help too. If you don't know how to garden and would like to learn some stuff I'm happy to share what I know. Any questions, please call Iris at 723-5925 or 384-9123.
