Keri Brenner: ‘Earth Day’ eagerness

So many events, so little time — and so little space to publicize them.

This weekend is so packed, events are spilling over to The Union's Saturday Spotlight and to the regular news section.

Whether it's blues music by Nick Moss and Grease, Grit & Grime (see pages 6-7), or new art exhibits at two local galleries: LeeAnn Brook Fine Art (see page 20); and ASiF (see page 21), all is geared up for enjoyment and pleasure.

Given the prediction of good weather this weekend, we will all be hard-pressed to decide on the best plan of action.

In addition to all the events in this issue of Prospector and other pages in the paper, The Union's major Home, Garden & Lifestyle Show is taking over Nevada County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday. As you may recall from last week's story in Prospector, this year's show will have two highly recommended bands: Sons of Boogie on Saturday; and Razzvio on Sunday, along with more than 175 home improvement vendors. see http://www.theunion.com for more information.

Sierra College in Grass Valley will mark its "Earth Day" celebration today; on Saturday (the actual "Earth Day") at the college, there is a "Day for Women" with speakers, workshops, food and crafts. Information on those is also at http://www.theunion.com.

Meanwhile, if you missed the stunning debut last weekend of CATS' "The White Snake," reviewer Hindi Greenberg recommends you don't delay any further and go buy tickets (see page 8).

Sierra Cinemas is offering both opera (see page 23) and live theater (see page 2) on screen this weekend.

And film reviewer Chuck Jaffee continues his rundown on the ongoing Nevada Theatre film series reprising the best of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival (see page 5).

Happy Earth Day!

May this observance serve to ground you further into the essence of saying "yes" to your own life and to the life bursting forth in this community.
